RP: A Talk and a Party
Date: 1 May 2006
Characters: Daphne, Miles, Montague, Higgs, Cass
Location: Bletchley Manor
Summary: Daphne has an important talk with Miles before his belated surprise birthday with the boys.
It was early evening when she felt Miles finally returning from his pub. It seemed that Miles was gone a lot lately - far more than usual, at least, and Daphne had her suspicions that it wasn't by chance.
He'd heard those words pop out of her mouth, and he knew that she knew he heard them. And now he always seeemed to be 'busy' with something, never catching her gaze for too long.
Daphne informed Zorbin of the evenings plans, and had set aside snacks and plenty of alcohol for the festivites. Miles' friends were due to arrive in an hour or so, and so Zorbin was to lead them into the drawing room as they arrived. Once she knew that they had all arrived, Zorbin was to inform his mistress, and then Daphne would take Miles to the drawing room herself.
In the meantime, it was about time they had a little chat. Daphne dreaded it horribly, but Miles had left her with little choice.
Pushing open the door to his study, the one place that Miles seemed to always be, Daphne set her face into the calmest expression she could muster, even if her heart was pounding. She gave him a level look as he raised his eyes to her, and she took a deep breath.
"Are we going to talk about this? Or are you just going to avoid me forever?"
