I totally forgot to sign up this week, even though this post has been scheduled since Friday night—so I’m relieved you stopped in anyway!  Thank you!

Clyota and the Pressmen finally open that mysterious lockbox—and find a bunch of documents that are not, at first glance, worth a man’s life—or his death. But there’s also an Eyes Only sealed packet containing a message addressed to Clyota:

I stared at my name on the envelope. A letter from Mom—I shivered, knowing I needed to open it, but still afraid of its contents: a confession, a reason, the ravings of a madwoman?

I weighed it in my hands, then pulled the flap up and slid out the contents. What had Mom wanted to say to me?

My disbelieving eyes saw a bright, cheery bouquet of flowers, tied with a bright pink ribbon and sporting glittery, textured calligraphy.

Mom had wanted to say “Happy Birthday to a Wonderful Daughter.”

  1. To have so much apprehension and fear and for it to turn out to be a happy birthday wish has got to be the strangest feeling. Not exactly a let down, but an acute sense of confusion and still that lack of explanation. Clyota was certainly on a roller coaster.
