I will make her talk.
The bratva put a gun in my hand at age thirteen. Gave me freedom, a sense of belonging, and the family I never had.
There’s no way I’m going to let this slip of a woman harm my boss.
No matter how beautiful she is.
How painfully fragile.
Hurting a woman, however, is not possible.

She’s my best failure as gatekeeper, crashing past all my defenses, indelibly into my heart.
