"You think I don’t know that?!" He reached out, whipping one of the papers out of his face, "If I had known - if there had been half a hint of you, I would have been there. You wouldn’t have been al —" He stopped himself short, teeth clamping down on the soft flesh on the inside of his cheeks, "Because it’s not the same thing. Yuri and Ivan can do fine by themselves."
He sees red for a moment, and he knows he

getting myself into.”
"Because it doesn’t concern you. Did you ever meet the woman?"
"Do I have to meet her to want to help? What I choose to
do shouldn’t concern you. They’re my choices.”
"Yet you know him well enough to try and put yourself in a firing line because of his mother?"
"She was killed. Why would I stand

"Well, the other Yuri seems to think you prefer it.”
"He doesn’t know me as well.”
