Asugi was not the type to get up at 4 in the morning just so he could do something sentimental for his father. Maybe for his stepfather, the man was nice enough, but that was a hard 'maybe'. The only reason he would ever wake up at 4 in the morning to do something nice for his father, was if his lovely and well-meaning stepsister annoyed him out of bed and dragged him to the kitchen.
Unfortunately, Soleil did just that.
By all accounts, Laslow has a pretty good life. He's surrounded by friends (who tease him endlessly), his liege is a noble and commendable man (who still was willing to get Laslow out of trouble), and his lover, his beautiful, grouch of a lover was his and his alone. For all of his flirting antics, Laslow hadn't thought of marrying anyone before. But now, Saizo was in his life, and Laslow wanted him to stay. But it wasn't the topic of marriage that had him hesitating each night.
No, it was the fact that Laslow still hadn't told Saizo that he actually belonged to a different time period/dimension entirely, and had actually time traveled before this when he and his friends decided to stop their world (with their parents, pre-having-a-kid stage) from being overrun by the undead and a giant freaking dragon.
There just wasn't an easy way to bring that up, honestly.
Phoenix convinces Miles to bring Trucy in with him for Bring Your Daughter to Work Day, despite Miles' misgivings. Everything becomes even more complicated when Kay Faraday and Shi-Long Lang call on him for assistance. Set between the original trilogy and Apollo Justice; mild spoilers for both Investigations games.
