“I’m going to marry the daughter of grandpa’s distant relatives?”Andrew said after hearing his father’s voice through the phone call.[Exactly. By doing so, you will still have the connection with me and Vincent. It also includes both Henry and Luke but at least you will still have connections with us!!] His father said cheerfully.His grandfather told all of the family members to not converse with Andrew in the future and that includes his own father.

It appears that Vincent also helped him search for the way.Though, everything is moving a bit too fast for Andrew.“So…I’m going to marry a complete stranger…is that what you were saying” He said to the point that he understands.[Technically, yes but that’s not the point–!] His father replied but before he could speak further, Andrew quickly cut him off.
