At the break of dawn, Nicholas left his hotel room and arrived at the Clark's residence in haste. He let himself in through the servant's hall and waited in the kitchen, he made sure to stay away from the cook's way as she prepared breakfast flustered by the rest of the staff, who didn't seem to meet her expectations. Nicholas wondered where Mary got the money to employ more servants but that wasn't of importance.

Maggie appeared with a bowl of water and Nicholas intercepted her before she could leave. "Maggie, may I speak to you?"

The way to the hotel felt short and when he entered his room, he found Francisco standing in front of the window. He turned to him quizzically. Nicholas shook his head. "She wouldn't leave her father."

Francisco nodded and sat on the bed defeated, Nicholas joined him. They had a meeting with potential clients at four. Nicholas was hopeful that Olivia would leave with them to Sacramento, perhaps start a new life, but her love for her family was greater.

Nicholas failed once again to save her. He started to think everything was lost, and he was going to give up. But an unfortunate event could have brought his hope back, if only he had been at the hotel.
