Monday, August 21st ~*~ Late Afternoon
There was no thought of going in to work today. Daphne had woken early and made arrangements with her staff, telling them she wasn't feeling well and that she wasn't sure when she'd be back.
Breakfast had been an excuse to keep her hands busy and avoid talking to anyone for more than a few moments, then came the clean up which she'd managed to stretch out long enough to start working on lunch. But now there was nothing left to keep her hands and mind distracted, and Daphne wandered into the telly room.
She had thought to watch a movie but found herself instead standing at the doors that lead out to the lawn, looking through the glass blindly as she got lost in her thoughts.
