Daphne wanted everything perfect for Daniel for when he arrived home from visiting a patient. Ever since the hunt, every spare moment they had they spent it with each other. It really was sickening how close they were all the time and Yvette, Daniel's assistant, often voiced her opinion about it. Daphne didn't understand her so it didn't bother her much. Though they spent all the time they could together, there was hardly enough time to do so. But Daniel had the rest of the night off and Daphne had prepared to keep him all to herself.
A letter arrived late in the afternoon for Daphne, but she was too busy making things ready for Daniel to read it just yet. Setting it on the nightstand, she went on about her business. She had set out candles to light when it was close to Daniel being home, and she had undressed all but for a robe. Lighting the candles when it was time - really she did it for Daniel since he was all mushy like that - she sat on the bed and waited for him to get home. Realizing she still had time, she reached over for the letter and unfolded it.
As she read the loaded letter from her youngest sister, Ella, Daphne forgot to breathe. Her father, Lord John Wexley IV, had died two days ago, and his with his dying breath he had asked for Daphne. Tears formed in her eyes and she just sat there, rereading the letter over and over. She hardly even heard the bedroom door open.
