This is how my 13th re read held up With that horrible bun she wears and those dreary clothes the girl s as noticeable as a stick insect on a twig She is so much a part of the background I doubt any man would even see her unless she were standing a foot in front of him and even then he would forget her the moment she was out of his line of vision I know I do No matter how painful overhearing those unflattering words fall from her employer s unreuited crush lips I love how they gave Daphne the backbone to take a hard look at her life and decide enough is enough I am leaving She reached into the pocket of her heavy work apron and pulled out a folded sheet of paper I have here my letter of resignation He stared at the folded sheet of paper she held out but he did not take it from her

thumbs brushing against the sides of her neck Since we are alone and there is no one here to stop me I am ridding you of it I have wanted to do this for days He shoved the last hairpin in place and
