Even after University had resumed and everything was back to the way it had been, Rosalie could not get accustomed to the fact that she had guards watching her. The first week, one guard stayed in the car, while the other followed her around, maintaining his distance form her, but keeping her in eyesight.

When her friends finally noticed this one suit-clad guy following her around everywhere, they thought he was her stalker. Rosalie had laughed at them and told them that he was her...bodyguard...of sorts. That notion in itself had her friends flabbergasted which resulted in numerous questions from them--which she couldn't possibly answer without disclosing the fact that she was in the Mafia protection programme.

So she excused herself, claiming to be late for work.

Finally, they came around to her vacation, all of them saying they missed her and asking where she had gone and what she had done there. Thinking on the spot, she made up the lie of trekking. Claiming that her family took her on a hiking expedition in Switzerland where she didn't have signals for a call and only returned a day before University started again.

Her friends were all very satisfied with the response, even further prodding to get to know more about the Alps. She told the same story to her family when they called, and they were all very excited for her.

However, Rosalie didn't feel very good about herself whenever she lied to them.

It had been a little over two weeks since the lunch incident with Arcangelo and she hadn't received any interactions from him. No call, no message, nothing. But, she figured if she were to go out of the guard's vision, he would contact Arcangelo, who would contact her, telling her to stay where she was. It was mostly messages, hardly any calls, and never any appearances.

So that's what she started to do, disappearing from the guard's vicinity.

Her ribs were healed now and she had gotten the bandage removed, meaning she could finally wear all the clothes that she wanted to.

For this specific Monday, she decided to go all black. With a short frilly black skirt over stockings, a bustier crop top with her favorite leather jacket over it, and with a pair of strappy black heels. Leaving her hair open, Rosalie did light nude makeup before grabbing her bag and making her way to the car.

She found her friends standing by the entrance door of the university building and made her way over to them, Dante being the first one to catch sight for her as slowly everyone noticed her.

"Morning, guys." She smiled as they all stared at her silently.

"Aye Papi. You hot, " Maria exclaimed as she fanned herself. "Gorgeous, babe, "

"Thank you." Rosalie smiled before she got engaged in a conversation with one of the friends.

Glancing at the time, they all decided to head off to their respective classes as a lot of guys flirted with Rosalie. More than usual, that is.

She was hanging out with Maria before her biology class as they both went to the little cafe for lunch. They both were seated at their usual table and eating their meals when Rosalie's phone vibrated in her pocket. Taking it out, she read another one of Arcangelo's message: "stop trying to get rid of them. They won't leave." It read this time, and like always, she refused to respond.

"Who is he?" Maria asked her.


"Who's the guy?"

"What guy?"

"The one that keeps messaging you and your cheeks flush every time."

"Do not!" Rosalie denied in aghast.

"Do too!"

"Not." She exclaimed with a chuckle as she bit into her meal, a sudden idea coming to her mind. "Hey, Maria. I need your help?"

"In what?" Her friend inquired curiously, her interest spiking as Rosalie beckoned her forward to whisper in her ear.

"Help me get rid of the guard, " Rosalie whispered in her ear. "I need to disappear from his view and into my bio class. He doesn't know the building like we do, so I need your help."

"What are you suggesting?" Maria inquired with a smirk.

"I'm suggesting you distract him, while I slip off unnoticed."

"Done, babe."

"Treat at

Eventful, " Rosalie spoke with a grin, looking up at him.

"Oh, really? How so?" He inquired quietly as he ran the back of his hand down her cheek, mesmerized by the smile she was giving him.

"Well. You won't believe. This, really hot guy came into my class, and he told me to stop playing games and then kissed me senseless in front of everyone before telling them that I was his. Can you believe the nerve of the guy?"

"I think it was rather bold. I mean making a statement in front of the entire university. Everyone would know not to touch you because you're his."

"But still. The audacity, " She spoke in mock exasperation as Arcangelo chuckled, leaning down to place a soft kiss on her lips as she responded instantly.

A sudden squeal escaped Rosalie as she pulled away, staring at him with wide eyes as he was grinning mischievously.

"Did you just pinch me?"

"What can I say, I was tempted, " Arcangelo spoke innocently as she looked at him with a raised eyebrow. "Besides, you look absolutely ravishing in this outfit."

"Thank you." She smiled shyly as she looked away.

"Do you have any plans for today?"

"Actually, I was about to head out for lunch with my friends, " Rosalie informed while biting her lip.

"Then let me drop you, " Arcangelo spoke huskily as he ran his thumb over her bottom lip. "I have to get going anyways."

"Let me just confirm where we're going." She told him as she interlaced their fingers, walking him over to her friends as he wrapped his arm around her shoulders, pulling her into his side.

Once they were standing in front of her friends, they all stared up at him as Rosalie asked where they were headed.

"Uh..." Maria trailed, her mind going blank as to where their destination. "Why don't you ask your boyfriend to suggest a place?"

"Well, boyfriend what do you say?" Rosalie spoke with flushed cheeks and a shake of her head.

"A good place for lunch...hmm...well you know what, here." He stated as he took out his wallet from his back pocket, taking out his credit card and handing it to Rosalie as she stared at him in surprise.

"Today's lunch is on me. Go on ahead and chose whatever restaurant." He stated as he glanced at his watch, seeing that it was high time he left. "Well, if you'll excuse me, a meeting is waiting for me, " Arcangelo said as he started to walk away, everyone staring at his retreating figure.

"Arcangelo, wait!" Rosalie called as he stopped, turning around to look at her from behind his black sunglasses. "What about your card?"

"I'll get it later." He told her as he walked backward, a cocky smirk sported on his lips, the look causing butterflies to erupt in Rosalie's stomach. "Besides, I get an excuse to drop by."
