It had begun with a letter…
that arrived at her office earlier in the week. It was an effort from her estranged father to reconnect.
A simple note in her fathers handwriting read:
“Join me on Friday night,
Just like old times, for your birthday...
Come by my place after work.
The hand-drawn ballerina at the bottom of the page was a reference to the birthday tradition that began when she was young… the ballet on her birthday. Today was her birthday, his intention was to reconnect this evening.
