A couple of hours later Zoey left with Alexia. Even though she could barely keep herself from falling apart she wasn’t going to leave her daughter, the person she loved the most, with a mentally ill sister. That would be very irresponsible.
And so Daphne was all alone now. She tried to comprehend the fact that Gerard had taken his own life. Hadn’t Daphne told Zoey to leave so she could be with her family?
It’s not my fault, Daphne defended herself in silence, I didn’t ask Zoey to live with me and abandon her family for three months.
Well, that’s rather ungrateful, a small voice in her head said. Be honest, would আপনি have been fine without her?
And yet it’s not my fault, Daphne thought fierce, I let Zoey go. She should’ve tried harder saving her marriage.
Confident that she was indeed not to blame for Gerard’s death she stood up from the couch, when the ঘণ্টা rang. Daphne walked to the front door, but when she opened there was no one there. She looked down and noticed a small package. She picked it up and carried it inside. Daphne examined the box carefully, but there was no name অথবা address on it. She walked to the রান্নাঘর drawer and took out a knife. She walked back to the রান্নাঘর table, where she’d left the package and opened it. The package contained a DVD copy. Daphne took the DVD and put it in her DVD player. She turned her টেলিভিশন on and pressed play.
When the প্রতিমূর্তি appeared Daphne didn’t know how to react. She wanted to scream and throw her TV on the floor. She wanted to cry and drown in her own tears.
But she just sat there, staring shocked at the screen.
