"Here we are, Dr. Manette," Jarvis Lorry told his friend, climbing out of the carriage and turning back to help the older man climb down as well. Lucy followed and took her father's other side to help get him inside.
Once they reached Manette's room, Lucy left so Jarvis could help the doctor into his nightshirt. Manette was soon settled into bed to sleep off the stress of the day. Before Jarvis could leave, his wrist was caught in a surprisingly strong grip. "Mr. Lorry, could you stay until I'm asleep?"
Jarvis nodded and stayed, longer than requested.
