Daphne Blake sighed and stared out the window at the other skyscrapers in downtown Manhattan.
She seemed to get everything she wanted after their adventure in Mexico…a promotion, fame among the journalism community, and was even interviewed for Time Magazine.
But being an editor for the news page of the New York Chronicle had its drawbacks.
Rather than writing stories, she was retyping them.
Instead of pursuing stories, she was pursuing space among the many advertisements her paper ran.
Rather than tracking down leads, she was tracking down reporters who were late for deadlines.
Whispers throughout the newsroom, envious of her success in the jungles of Mexico, implied that she got the new job due to her daddy's and uncle's influence.

Well I knew I was gonna have trouble getting Daph out of there until I found out that there was a book and hobby shop upstairs.
and I bounded up the stairs!
I looked around found some books I might need and made a note to buy them later, as for the hobby shop most of it was HO scale stuff and didn't need it anyway but it was fun to look!
We went back downstairs and pushed Daphne
