"Remember when I told you that I read people by what they do, not by what they say?" Laura didn't look at him, but Steele continued. "Ever heard the phrase, 'If you love something, set it free'?"

"It goes on to say," she supplied, "'If it doesn't return, it was never really yours.' If you're reading my actions, you were set free, yet I chased you down."

"Change your perspective."

She frowned and shook her head.

"I set you free, Laura," he said. "You came back to me."

"Are you saying that you...?"

"Yes."

"And that I...?"

"Yes."

Laura smiled.

Author's Note: Typically, I don't do sequels, but this one seemed to fit with the original twist.
