There are tears in her eyes, suddenly. Hasn't she cried enough, these past few days? But there it is; all her anger has faltered at those simple words.

"Of course I do, Papa," she whispers, head bowed over their joined hands.

"Of course I do. Have you forgiven me too?"

She knows he meant to protect her, but all the same, he might have been angry at her too. For months she's been certain that she gave up her father's love somehow in gaining her husband's, and there's a part of her that still thinks she did, until she miraculously regained him at the last moment. She can't bear to not ask this now.
