Despite Josh’s unsociable disposition, Donna had, over the years, worked on his manners. He smiled, he was courteous, he pretended to take on board the endless advice. Then, just as his facade was slipping, Donna would swoop in and save him. However, despite the ubiquitous fatigue with which he had pushed through the day, tonight’s smile was earnest. As he entered the party, a little later than everybody else - except the president, he spied his angelic, flaxen-haired daughter. Evie was the perfect miniature of his wife, dainty, with a youthful elegance, the apple of his eye. She had her hair swept up in a silky, pink ribbon. Not a turned head in the room could detract his attention, perhaps not even Donna, who watched happily as her conversation with Margaret came to a halt.
Josh took a plate of hors d’ouevres from the hands of a waiter. “For the most important woman in the room,” he proudly proclaimed, as he headed towards Evie, lowering himself to her height as she met his path. She beamed at him as he softly said, “Hey sweetheart.” Feeling the eyes of everyone else in the room upon them, Evie shyly replied, “Hi Daddy.” After offering her the plate of appetizers as though they were made just for her, he asked, “How’s the party?” Evie smiled at him, charmed by the way he gave her his absolute attention, vaguely aware of the significance of many other figures surrounding them. “Are you making any deals, tying any shoelaces together?” She giggled at Josh, who kept to her eye-level and replied, “Not yet,” while holding onto her smile. He then wrapped his arms around her and joked, “Keep working the room”, before kissing her neck affectionately. “I love you.” [original]
