He ordered all the food that he wanted to eat, while she only ordered a vegetable salad and a glass of mango juice. Kaname did not care what she would eat. When the waiter finished taking their order, he leaned back on his chair and looked at the woman across him impassively.

She looked uncomfortable, but it pissed him off even more. How could she even have the audacity to seat in front of him after what he witnessed 17 years ago?

"Regina, "

She flinched when he called her by her old name, as if she didn't hear earlier that he already called her the same.

"Please call me Chelsea." She stated shyly.

With a frown, he crossed his arms on his chest and just looked at her. His brooding eyes made her even more uncomfortable.

"Why the change in name?" He asked out of curiosity. They did after all, were dating for about a year, and during that time, she was his only girlfriend. The only girl he had taken seriously. He was such a fool back then.

She leaned on the table, her eyelashes fluttered in hesitation and her eyes has a hint of fear in them.

"Kaname, I want to get out from the clout of the syndicate. But the only way I can do that is if they believe that I really died. What happened 17 years ago was because the son of the leader fancied me, and he arranged for my death as Regina. I had been living a quiet life in Florida for the most part, but I think the syndicate leader found out that I'm still alive. The priest who has been providing me shelter was killed a month ago. I knew then that they will not stop until they got me. So I flee. I went to other states, but they have agents everywhere in the US. Then, I remembered you. So, I came here to Japan. You are the only one who can help me, Kaname, please?"

Regina was younger than Kaname by 2 years, and at 35 years old, she is still as beautiful as she was back then. Her beauty has matured, and she has a more feminine aura to her than before. Back then, she was wild and fiery. But now, she has this elegance that comes with maturity.

Even so, Kaname does not feel anything about her anymore. The so-called closure of their relationship was not that good, so how dare she come here and plead for him to help her?

"Tell me Regina, when we had sex a few weeks ago, you bled. Why was that?" His question brought colors to her cheeks, and if he was the same Kaname 17 years ago, he might have been attracted to her. But he has changed. Regina and time changed him.

She fidgeted her fingers, an indication that she does not want to talk about it. But since she was asking him for a favor, she decided to tell him the truth.

"Seventeen years ago, I was pregnant with our child." At Kaname's openly suspicious look, she ga

in making women cry, he has a reputation in making them writhe in pleasure, not in something like this. He turned his face sideways, and in that instant, he saw Yousuke and Sachie going out. They were holding hands.

He felt something inside him stiffen, as if he was just kicked in his gut.

He then turned towards Regina, a plan working on his mind.

"Regina, I will think about your request. But on one condition, I want you to pretend to be my girlfriend in front of my friends, understood?" He said, his look as uncompromising as his voice.

She was suddenly lost. What is he talking about?

At the corner of his eyes, he saw that Yousuke noticed his car, and started walking towards them. In an instant, Kaname grabbed Regina and pressed her face close to him.

"Kaname…"

"Act, Regina. This is what you're good at, anyway, " he said dryly and kissed her.

Yousuke was about to knock on Kaname's window when he noticed that he was not alone, and he was in an intimate position. His small eyes widened when he realized what Kaname and his companion was doing in the car.

Damn this playboy! Even on the parking?

Hell, you're the man, Kaname! He smirked.

Yousuke protectively turned towards Sachie to shield her eyes from the obscene event inside Kaname's car, while his other hand knocked on the window. Very slowly, Kaname rolled his window down, and looked pissed off.

"What the…Yousuke?" His voice sounded surprise.

He opened the door to his side after giving a brief glance to Regina, silently telling her to ride on his pretense. As he went out, he glanced at Sachie, and he could not help but spotted her slightly swollen lips, and the reddening of her cheeks as she noticed him looking at her.

Shit! That was so obvious.

He clenched his fist inside his pocket.
