Dinah returned the toast and leaned forward to clink her glass with his. At least they weren't seated at the ridiculously long dining room table, so she didn't have to lean very far forward and they weren't shouting across the table at each other.
She took a few bites of the pasta and grinned fondly.
"I'm not sure what I would have done without Alfred these past few weeks."
The grin faded just a bit, but she tried to hang onto a little bit of a smile. She was trying not to be all gloom and doom all the time when she had company, though there were reasons that she hadn't exactly sought out the company of others lately. Save for moving in here with Alfred, of course.
"I'm going to have to go back to the townhouse eventually though. I can't intrude on his and Bruce's kindness forever."
It still bothered her that she hadn't seen Bruce at the Manor at all during either stay in his house. It made her wonder if she really was overstaying her welcome or stepping too much on his toes, even if she know he would never say that.
