Arcangelo lay on his stomach, watching Rosalie sleeping beside him.


He was surprised when he realized that he wasn't awoken by a blood-curdling scream. But he was far more relieved at that fact. He loved the way her hair was tousled, her plump lips slightly parted as her eyes were resting serenely, with her eyelashes brushing the top of her cheekbone.

Shuffling closer, he placed a kiss on her forehead before rubbing his thumb over her cheekbone, his touch gentle and smooth. He watched as her lips twitched in her sleep, even in her unconscious state she leaned into his touch, an action that made him realize that he was completely wrapped around her and wasn't going to leave her.

Rosalie's eyes fluttered open as she lazily blinked at him while he watched her with a gentle smile.

Giving him a sleepy grin, she closed her eyes before cuddling into the comforters, letting out a content moan before stretching her arms over her head, a light chuckle escaping her as she rubbed the sleep out of her eyes.

"What's so funny?" Arcangelo asked her gently, propping his head on his knuckles as Rosalie turned to look at him with a sleepy smile, another chuckle escaping past her lips.

"I was just imagining our kids asking how we met." She informed with a laugh as both of Arcangelo's eyebrows shot up. "It would be a funny story." She continued before rolling onto her stomach, her gaze turned away from him.

"Our kids?" Arcangelo inquired calmly, watching how Rosalie went tense, seemingly realizing what she had said.

"Did I say our kids?" She asked in a hopeless attempt to cover up what she said.

Rosalie instantly sat up, the duvet wrapped around her chest as she looked around for a shirt, avoiding Arcangelo's gaze.

"I meant Arsenio and Claudia! The two would obviously get curious and ask about how we met, you know." Rosalie continued to ramble as she picked up Arcangelo's button up and started to make her way to the washroom in attempts to avoid any more confrontations.

With a heavy breath, Arcangelo lay down on the bed, an arm covering his eyes as he heard her footsteps patter around the room.

"I want two kids." He confessed, instantly hearing the lack of movement followed by that statement. "A boy and a girl. Both of them would have black hair and blue eyes but they'd have your beauty."

"What?" She asked hoarsely, turning around to watch him sit up and scratch the back of his head almost nonchalantly.

"Did you think you were the only one who thought about how our future would be together?"

"Y-you actually-"

"-I want to marry you." He cut her off as he saw how she held her breath. "I want you to have my name. I want you to walk down the aisle to me. I want us to buy a house and build a life together. I want you to bear my children. I want you to marry me."

"Arcangelo..." She trailed as tears brimmed in her eyes, a wide grin on her face as she covered her mouth with her palm.

"But not right now." He continued as Rosalie sniffled back the tears, coming to sit before him. "I want everything to settle, and then I'll get down on a knee for you."

"Do you really mean that?" Rosalie asked as she grabbed his hand, intertwining their fingers together.

"I mean it..." Arcangelo assured. "But I want the threat over your head to be gone. I want things to work out between Vincent and me. I want the Mafia running smoothly again. I want you to graduate and get an internship. I want you to be self-sufficient. But most of all, I want Arsenio to accept you. And then I want to marry you."

"Okay." She nodd

as she realized that she never even told him how much she loved him and she had so many things to say to him and now it was possible that she was too late.

"Rosalie, pumpkin?" Her father called out at the dining table, jolting her out of her thoughts. "Are you alright?"

"I'm fine, papa." She assured with a smile, trying to wipe away the angst she felt. "Could you pass me the potatoes?" She asked her brother across from her.

Holding out the bowl for her, she reached out to grab it as her father caught sight of something, his eyes widening as he stared at his daughter in disbelief. She had just put the bowl down when her father grabbed her arm, startling her as he pushed back her sleeve, staring at the white 'x' marring her forearm.

"You've been marked?" Her father demanded as she pulled back her arm, covering it up again as her mother and brother looked at her in confusion. "Why didn't you tell me!?"

"It doesn't matter, " Rosalie murmured quietly. "It's being taken care off."

"Yeah? How?!"

"I'm in a witness protection programme and they know where to find the people."

"Dio mio!" Her father spoke as he gripped his hair in desperation. "It's all my fault."

"Dad, wha-" she started to ask in confusion before her phone rang, showing Arcangelo's contact name pop up.

Instantly attending the call, she placed the phone to her ear.


"It's a trap!" Arcangelo exclaimed into the phone, hurrying towards his car as he wiped the blood from his faces smearing it all over his cheek. "Rosalie! They were after you not because of your affiliation with me, but to your father!"

"Wha-?" He heard Rosalie ask before he cut her off.

"No time to explain, I need you to lock all doors and windows and stay in a room. Tell your dad to load up because I just handed you to the enemy on a golden platter." He rushed out as he sat behind the wheel, slamming the door shut as he struggled to get the keys in the ignition.

"Arcangelo, what are you saying? I can't hear you." She exclaimed as his voice kept cutting off. Suddenly, he heard shots ring off on the other line, his heart stopping in his chest as he instantly froze up. Screams followed the sound of the shots as Arcangelo couldn't breathe.

"Rosalie...." he rasped out, finally finding his voice again as he got no response from the other line besides the screaming and the shooting.
