“You Deserve Nothing Less. You Deserve Everything Your Heart Desires.” – Simon Bassett
Daphne has been raised to believe that her life has been reduced to a single moment, and that is who she is. Daphne says that she has no other value or power, especially as a woman. Simon comes into the story and proves this wrong.
Simon is naturally romantic and treats Daphne well, wanting her to have the best future possible. He tells her that she deserves it, and since Daphne has grown up not hearing these words, this is a big deal. While Simon has a deal in his mind that he will not have a child, he knows that Daphne wants to be a mother and that she deserves it.
