Subject: A nice little surprise
Where: Slater's abode, late at night on the 14th.
Open to: Viv Thorpe
Slater knew it was Vivian's big birthday, the one she'd been dreading, but he had been far too busy that day to even attempt to say it to her. Up at four, back at ten, Slater's day had been full of deals, broken homes, delivering news and punishments... he had forced his mind to push out thoughts of the females in his life, business being far too dangerous for him to be distracted, but when he returned home everything was in place as he had arranged.
A large birthday cake on his bed for when Vivian decided to retire for the night, along with a bottle of gin and a card for her, accompanied by a bouquet of posies and wildflowers that his boys had gotten her. Slater didn't go back to the room, choosing to sit in his study next door to listen to her reaction when she returned. He hadn't wanted to make a big song and dance. A man of few words was Slater, even Happy Birthday sometimes escaped him.
