- Gabrielle POV.
- I watched Blake sleep, indulging myself a little moment of staring creepily at him while he was oblivious. I smiled, remembering how perfect our night had been. I'd blurted out that I loved him as I came down from my high. I thought I would regret it, but I didn't, I never wanted to take it back and even tho he hadn't said the words back to me, I was certain that he felt something for me, and that little ray of hope had me thinking about the what if's.
- What if I stopped fighting for my inheritance, for the family business, and just went away with Blake... We could travel to places where they could never find us, where I had my other business branch situated, where I was free of my Mafia ties and I could love him without the fear of anyone harming him. A place I wouldn't have to be a criminal to him.
