There was a moment when everyone was exhilarated and relieved, but after that, there was only awkwardness - that kind of awkward in which those who're once in war against one another found themselves in the same place at the same time. And with that, only silence filled that awkwardness throughout the whole ride.
While Adrian had no idea that Asher was actually together with Irish, Cassidy were not aware that both of them were even somewhere around there. Because of how unexpected all of these were, no one managed to prepare a thing to say.
Fortunately, the kids soon appeared in the picture and saved the day - they rushed all the way to meet Cassidy and Adrian as soon as they arrived at the resort.
"Big sister! I thought I lost you!" Aira cried out while she clutched onto her side.
"I'm glad you're safe, Aunty! I'm really, really glad!" Hugo wailed as he did the same onto her other side.
"Calm down, you two. I'm fine. No need to bawl your eyes out..." Cassidy tried to reassure them while patting their heads.
