Alex and Dimitri later, but Ryan tells her that they should stay away from
there. Gillian demands that Ryan tell her the truth right then. She can tell
when he is lying to her. He tells her that he doesnít want her near there
because she may be in danger. He loves her too much to let her be anywhere
near things like that. She can live with him trying to protect her for the
rest of her life. She finds him overprotective and he makes her very happy.
Dimitri and Anna are alone in the room. Alex is getting the police. Bart saved Annaís life many times. He was a very honorable man. He wasnít everything that he appeared to be on the outside.
