The Saturday before Easter was Wilf’s birthday.
“I’d like to have a party,” he said to Rose as she poured him a second cup of chocolate and slid it over beside his plate of French pastry. “I haven’t had a party in years. Not since my Eileen died. Haven’t felt like partying since, but now that Donna and Chris are back… well, it doesn’t seem so bleak anymore.”
Rose smiled at him, and began to wipe down the counters.
“Donna’s said she’ll plan it, and Chris has agreed to host it on his boats,” Rose glanced up in surprise, but Wilf continued. “You’ll come, won’t you my dear? I’ve also invited Sarah Jane Smith and her son Luke, and all of the members of Chris’ crew, and Martha Jones, and Father Williams. You must come.”
Rose’s smile transformed into a grin. “Of course I’ll come, Wilf. I wouldn’t miss it.”
