    Summary

    “Do you think I’m ready?” Her question was muffled by her sobs and his suit collar.

    “Of course,” he whispered into her hair.

    “What if,” she pulled away, but her hands still lingered on his chest. “What if she doesn’t remember me? What if she doesn’t even like me? What if—” 

    “Hey, she’ll love you.” If Anya could cradle this cold and bitter conman’s heart— the heart he willingly gave to her— surely melting the Dowager’s icy walls would be no different.

    Thank god he didn’t say that thought out loud.

    “And what if she does?”

    “What?”

    “What if she does like me? What will I do then?” Her gaze dropped to his lapel, unable to meet his eye. “What then… would you… what will happen to us?”

    Summary

    Mitya has never met anyone like her — he doesn’t know how one woman can still hold so much sunshine inside her when life has dealt her such a hand. He himself can barely remember the cards that were laid out in front of him, and yet he feels like his bitterness contaminates everything around him, as though the blackness of his spirit is encroaching on her light.

    “Now,” Anya says, “Let’s begin. You were born in a palace by the sea.”

    Summary

    As it was finals week, he expected there’d be potential in waking up at 4 am to catch people on their way out after all-nighters. What he didn’t expect was to have to physically catch a girl who collapsed from exhaustion and carry her to his apartment so she could sleep it off on his couch.
