A tip, of course, that he made sure Jenny noticed. “Thank you, sir,” the taxi driver said as he removed the fiftypound note from Donavan’s hand. Donavan made his way quickly into the terminal, as Jenny struggled on behind with her huge suitcase. He walked over to the BA special priority check-in desk, and they walked through to departures a few minutes later.
But the suicide note, - that was for him. A few scribbled lines telling him how much she’d loved him, how she’d looked up to him all these years although he probably didn’t know it.

And what a second chance it was, a trip to Paris, for God’s sake. She’d be crazy to refuse.
