“Mio dio, I love the way you say my name” His voice was a husky whisper, and Gema took a step back, caught off guard. He stared at her intently, shoving his hands into his pockets. “What do you want” he snapped at her, and Gema hesitated.
    	“Well I…..I’ve been thinking over your offer, and…” Gema said, sitting down now, and He shook his head from the window. 
             “Do we have a deal or not?” Gema looked at him, seeing the mischievous glint to his eye, and her resolve wavered. But the small part of her, the part that wanted to wrap herself in this man and never resurface, spoke up. 
    	“Deal” Gema held out her hand to shake and he chuckled, stepping close to her, his eyes hooded by heavy lids. 
    	“In my country, we do a little more than just shake on it” 
    	His hand grasped hers and yanked her into him, and Gema gasped in surprise as she landed against his hard chest. She looked up into his hazel eyes, and he placed a hand on her chin lightly, tilting her towards him as she drowned in his eyes.
