Francis has an idea of what Patrick does for a living, he can put two and two together and get four after all. It’s illegal if Patrick’s avoiding a paper trail, it pays well, and it’s dangerous. There are a couple ways that adds up and none of them are pleasant, but Francis puts it out of his mind. His job isn’t to speculate on his patients’ possible mafia connections. So Patrick comes in with bleeding gashes and missing teeth, and Francis sews him up and doesn’t ask. He’s one of the unluckiest people Francis has ever met, and he leaves it at that.
Until Patrick shows up holding his guts in, that is.

“Of course I know. It has not been kept a secret.” He considers walking up to Stephen’s sisters and dancing with one of them, as an excuse, but he fears if he did Stephen would leave the ball and not come back. “Congratulations.”
“What for?” Stephen lets out in a hiss. Gabe dares to look up at his face, and sees a frown there.
“For your engagement, of course,” Gabe says. He feels heartbroken as he says it, a cloud of hurt firmly stuck on his throat. “I feel very happy for you.”
