Scarletta knew that he cared deeply for her. Most Daddies didn't keep a heart monitor in their girls' collars, or checked them everyday, before she went to sleep and the moment she awoke. She knew that because the other girls she knew in relationships like hers, stared at them as though they were mad as hatters whenever Hyde checked on her before she went up to sleep at the end of one of their rare little gatherings. She paid them no heed, she was just happy that he cared enough to do it.
The thought of her still not officially living with him lingered, and she decided to ask. "Love? Can I ask you something?" she asked once they were inside, her heels kicked off and replaced by a set of black slippers with hearts on them.
