"There are only two things I want in this world." Rosalie confessed as she looked up at Arcangelo with soft glowing eyes and a beautiful smile. "I want you, and I want us."

The smile that spilled across her lips had Arcangelo's heart leap in his chest. He felt that old mechanism jumps to life, beating in overdrive as his entire being warmed up, the chill of the night becoming something benign as his fingers stopped shaking from the cold and felt heat travel up to his neck as he saw the bright pink tone of her cheeks. Her blue eyes crinkled at the edges while she showed off her white teeth; a laugh bubbling through her as she covered her mouth with her hand.

"I want us." She exclaimed with a laugh. "I want us!"

Arcangelo blinked at her for a moment as he looked at her bursting with laughter, her cheeks flushed and her eyes bright with life. She spread out her arms, seemingly gesturing to everything around them before repeating her statement.

"I want us."

Closing his eyes, Arcangelo found himself inhaling deeply as he ran a hand through his hair. Shuffling on his feet, he shifted a little as the smile dropped from Rosalie's lips, an uncertain spark ignited in her eyes. Instantly her hands dropped to her side as she hunched her shoulders and pinched her lips into a thin line, the tears welling up in her eyes at the lack of his response as she turned her gaze away from him.

"Leave us." Arcangelo instructed the two guards as they started to walk away from them, leaving Rosalie to realize that maybe....maybe he didn't want 'us'.

He watched the guards walk further away until he was certain they were out of earshot before grabbing Rosalie's shoulder and pushing her against the car.

A startled gasp escaped her as she found herself pinned against the vehicle. However, her surprise was short lived as she found Arcangelo's lips on her own in a bruising and possessive kiss. Overwhelming relief flooded throughout her body as the tears leaked down her eyes, her arms wrapping around the back of his neck to pull him closer.

Flushed and breathless they both pulled away, Arcangelo's eyebrows furring in confusion as he saw the tears on her cheeks.

"Why are you crying?" He asked her gently as he wiped the tears from her cheeks.

"You scared me." She choked on her laughter. "You made me think that I had just made an open declaration of progression all for you to turn me down."

"Even if I tried..." Arcangelo trailed as he caressed her jaw with his thumb. "I could never turn you down."

Another laugh bubbled through Rosalie as she lunged at him, wrapping her arms around his neck and holding on close. His arms encircled her waist as he lifted her off the floor, her feet dangling in the air as he hugged her tightly, burying his face in the crook of her neck as she nuzzled against his chest.

"I missed you..." Arcangelo confessed against her skin, Rosalie's heart leaping in ecstasy as she realized he too spent time thinking about her.

"I missed you, too." She stated as she placed a kiss on his head, before resting her cheek against his shoulder, having felt so completely deprived of his touch, and his warmth and his care during the last three weeks.

Arcangelo lay on the bed, a pillow in arm with his head rested atop, a soft smile gracing his lips as he looked at the end of the bed. He watched Rosalie rummage through her wardrobe in search for something to wear to university in the morning.

As he lay on her bed and allowed her familiarity to waft around him as he stared at her back, a thought occurred to him.

She was one of a kin

all the events of his business venture overseas.

"Speaking of the auction!" Arcangelo realized as he wiped his mouth with a tissue.

Getting off the bed, Rosalie watched him leave the room and return with one of his luggage bags. Laying it on the floor, he zipped it open as she watched in quaint amusement at his actions.

He took a black square shaped box, a broad grin making its way across his lips as he went back to her. Sitting cross-legged before her, he placed the box in her lap. She stared down at the black package before looking back at the giddy smile on his face.

"What's this?" She asked.

"It's for you." He informed. "Open it."

"Alright, " A chuckle escaped Rosalie at his eagerness as she unclipped the lock, pulling the lid open as she stared at the contents. A soft gasp escaped her as she looked at the necklace inside. Covering her mouth in shock, she watched Arcangelo remove it from its place before putting it around her neck.

"Oh my God, " She whispered quietly as she touched the sapphire pendant, staring at Arcangelo in awe. "I-I...it's beautiful."

"You like it?" He asked with a bright smile.

"I-I...it must have cost you a fortune!" She stammered. "I-I can't accept this!" Rosalie continued as she tried to take it off.

"No, no!" Arcangelo stopped her by grabbing her hands. "Don't take it off. You look beautiful with it."

"B-but I can't ever repay you."

"Don't." He shook his head, cupping the back of her neck to bring her closer. "Think of it as progress in our relationship."

Rosalie looked at him in uncertainty as she knew that sapphire wasn't an inexpensive stone, and if she had to guess, she would say the chain was solid gold too. This was one expensive necklace, she knew, and the fact that he spent so much money on her just made her uneasy.

"A-Arcangelo...I-I-" She stuttered, trying to find the words that she needed to express. However, that was unsuccessful because he molded his lips to her, catching her by surprise before she responded, cupping his face in her hands.

"I want you." Arcangelo put an end to her stammering. "Right here. Right now." He murmured against her lips before lowering to her neck as she let out a breathy moan of compliance, wanting him just as much as he wanted her, his fingers deft on removing her shirt and discarding it to the floor, soon to be followed by the remaining clothing articles.
