"Cassidy slow down, you might choke." Sanctuary said, "The food isn't going anywhere."
Cassidy pouted, "But-"
"No 'but's, you could choke and you don't want your father to be saddened by you choking."
Her eyes widened, "I don't want Daddy sad! If I eat slower would Daddy be happy?"
"Yes." Sanctuary said, taking a bite of her chicken.
Cassidy promptly started eating slowly.
Once the ringing was gone from her ears, she ran her clawed hand through her hair.
