I'd like to think he's just testing the father??? Like "do you really think you can pretend you're being a good father"

First, the father pleading with pity for an easy way out. Secondly, he's too wound up gaining wealth to even think about him and his daughter's wellbeing. 
                              If I was Verity, I just leave the man to rot. He's poisoning himself without anyone's help.

Ah I love how the author did this. It needs renovation and she does as well!

Very fitting for the protagonist's name. The Cinderella stories often depict the leading female as a truthful being.

She's gonna PASS (through) the night not SPEND the night (doing stuff)
