- ~Gabriella’s POV~
- I had a week-long reservation at The Hills International Hotel. They were establishing a new hotel, and my little studio was contracted to photograph their new cuisine and rooms for an upcoming magazine. It was a fantastic bargain for both myself and my staff. The shoot began early this morning. I wasn't going to make it to Xander's school, and there was no way I was going to ask Chloe. The lady was struggling to take a breath. I took my phone from my pocket and dialed Grandma's number. I informed her that I would be out of town on business and would not be able to pick up Xander as usual. Grandma said she'd send a driver to pick him up.
