As the plane landed, I smiled. It was a rather bumpy landing, but I didn't mind. I saw the Eiffel Tower as we were descending and my grin grew bigger if that was possible. I'd been on many missions, but never to Paris.

We disembarked and Grayson pulled a pair of earbuds out of his ears. He was sporting his somewhat usual blank faced expression. I honestly didn't know what was up with him. Sometimes he'd be smiling and doing stupid things with me, others he'd deadpan me all day. Maybe it's just because he's still getting used to me, he moved in pretty recently. Plus, dealing with mobsters for six months can have it's lasting effects.

I thanked the pilot while Grayson threw her a subtle nod. I guess it's better than nothing. I was angry and disappointed that Tyler hadn't called me yet or talked to me before I'd left. He knows I'm going deep undercover and won't be able to risk contact with him.

I don't know why he acted the way he did, but I figured that he just needed some space I guess. After the way I was raised, it's hard for me to genuinely love someone and Tyler has come the closest by far.

As we got into a black car, Grayson turned to me. "Do you remember your alias?" He questioned. It kind of looked like he was glaring at me, but I ignored it.

"My name is Delphine Bijou and I don't speak French very well, if any at all. I'm a maid who has come to work at the mansion and I still don't think it's fair that you get to be a mobster while I'm cleaning their closets." I stated, "You could find skeletons in those closets." Grayson deadpanned. I laughed quietly before deciding to ask him a question too.

"What about yours?"

e mission had even started.

I didn't have a problem sharing a bed with Grayson even though I had a boyfriend. It was just sleeping, right? Grayson came out of the bathroom in boxers and I gaped. His chest was covered in scars, most likely from painful torture sessions, and his body was toned from the neck down. Sure, I looked like that too, so did Tyler, it was basically part of the job description, but Grayson wore it like it was a new edition of Vogue.

It was beautiful.

Shut up Izzy, you have a boyfriend, remember?

I shook my head and pulled out the book I'd brought. As I was a few chapters in, I heard a groan.

"Can you hurry up? I'm trying to sleep and the light makes it hard." Grayson whined. I'm pretty sure a trained spy can find ways to fall asleep with the light on.

Nevertheless, I sighed and put my book on the nightstand. I then shut off the light and pulled the covers over my shoulders. "Good night." I didn't expect him to reply, so I wasn't disappointed when he didn't. I heard Grayson let out a snore soon after and I fell asleep to the sound of his heavy breathing.
