Gia is on her knees in the living room looking for something when Nikolas enters and when he closes the door Gia is startled. He wants to know what she was doing under the couch.

He tells her that he was on his way to the PC Grill for a business meeting. She gets up to leave and he stops her to continue his story. He had lunch with the manager of a radio station and convinced him to do business with him. Ned has been trying to get this guy for a long time. He has wrapped up a successful day.

After they are finished, they lay on the floor and he tells her that she takes his breath away. She is glad that he thinks that she is beautiful. He apologizes for her Valentine's Day. There is a knock on the door and Nikolas yells out, "Leave it on the Porch". He runs to the door and returns with a gift. It is for her and she realizes that he didnít forget after all. He comes over to her and she canít believe that he fooled her all day. She takes the gift and rips it open. It is the picture that she was looking for. He had it framed for her.

Sometimes she feels like the only one that knows him. He makes her smile at the worse possible situations. She sees beautiful things in him, but she canít justify them. Sometimes he acts like a jerk and he knows that her family doesnít like him. He is just scared that she will be convinced that he is not right for her. She feels that something bad happened to him in the past. He is not going to go back to his past. At the end of everything, he met her. He tells her that he is a jerk, but he wants to be better so that he can be with her. He still may go to prison. She has plans for the future. She should go ahead and get on with her life. She can do whatever she wants, he canít stop her. Sometimes she daydreams about them dancing together. It is very old-fashioned dancing. They are in a ballroom and he asks her to dance, like Cinderella. He would never laugh at her. He jumps up and stretches out his hand. She takes it and jumps up to dance with him. They have no music, but they donít need it. Emily and Zander dance together with the music in their hearts.
