"My dear friend, Abe," Victor states, darkly, "I came for your lovely Rosemarie."
"Over my dead body!" Abe roars at the same time as Dimitri growls,
"Touch her and die."
"You two both underestimate me," Victor tells them.
"And you underestimate me you motherfucking bastard," I snarl. He laughs at me and signals to Robert, who's standing over Jill. He wraps his arm around her neck and pulls her into a standing position with a pistol pointed to her head.
"If anyone tries to stop us from leaving, little Jill's brains are going to be staining your carpet," Robert says, menacingly. He starts to back out the door and I jump to my feet. Baba puts a hand on my arm.
"We'll save her, kiz," he tells me. I try to reassure Jill with my eyes but she looks terrified. Victor and his men leave the hotel with poor little Jill in tow. Emily, her mother is sobbing into her husband's shoulder. I stand and walk over to her.
"We're gonna get her back, Mrs. Mastrano," I squeeze her shoulder, "I

The ballroom is already packed when Dimitri and I walk in. I spot my friends over by the bar so I drag Dimitri over to them. Everyone is standing around, mingling. I spot my mother and father talking to Eric and Rhea Dragomir. Abe raises his champagne flute at me and I give him the finger and stick my tongue out. He laughs along with mom and the Dragomirs.
"Hey, guys," I greet my friends, "You all met my boyfriend, Dimitri, in gym, no?" I ask. I watch all of their jaws drop in shock, except Lissa and Christian's, of course. I laugh at their facial expressions.
"I haven't met him," Andre says, "Neither have Adrian or Syd, I'm sure."
"Oh. That's right. You losers graduated and left us, years ago," I reply, dramatically. My friends laugh and Dimitri chuckles, "So anyway, this is my boyfriend, Dimitri. Dimitri, that's Lissa's brother, Andre, their cousin, Adrian, and Adrian's girlfriend, Sydney. You know the others from class." I point out each person in turn. Just then, Abe

After getting dressed, I walk over to Dimtri's room and knock on his door. He opens it almost immediately. I grin at him and he kisses my forehead.
"What do you say we go tell my mom about us then watch movies until Lissa gets here to get ready for the banquet?" I ask, tilting my head to the side a little.
"Sounds perfect," he kisses my lips. We walk downstairs and find my mom in the sitting room making some last minute changes to the banquet plans. I sit by her and lay my head on her shoulder.
"What did you do this time?" she asks, turning towards me. I widen my eyes innocently.
"Why do you always assume I did something?" I ask back. She raises an eyebrow. I roll my eyes, "I just wanted to introduce you to my boyfriend...oh, wait, you met him before I did. Oops." I laugh. Mom smiles at me. She then turns towards Dimitri.
"If you hurt my little girl, Belikov," she starts, "I'll break your knee-caps." And just like that she waves her hand to dismiss us and goes back to he

"I had fun tonight," I told Dimitri, walking out of the movie theater. Our hands are laced tightly together. I smile up at him.
"I'm glad. And I did too," he tells me and kisses my forehead. As we near his car, he freezes.
"What's -" he shushes me. I stop talking immediately, a little hurt. He takes out his car keys and hands them to me.
"Get in the car," he demands, "Get down on the floor and lock the doors."
"What about you?" I ask starting to panic a little, until he flashes another set of keys. I get in the car and watch out the window. I watch a figure in all black walk up to Dimitri. He turns his head slightly and I have to suppress a gasp. It's Victor Dashkov, Lissa's estranged uncle. He's also the leader of the Strigoi, our main rival in the business. He's been after the daughters of powerful leaders of the mafia for over a year.
I watch as Dimitri says something to him and he laughs. Dimitri's jaw ticks and he puts his hand on his gun. Victor says something and

Four Days Later - Friday Night
"Liss!" I call from my bathroom.
"Yeah?" she asks from my room. I walk out and see her sitting on my bed flipping through a Teen Vogue.
"I need help," I say. She looks up and sees what I mean immediately. I'm standing here in my fucking underwear. Jesse Zeklos asked me out two days ago for tonight and I don't know what to wear. Liss runs to my closet and starts pulling out clothes.
"Do you wanna go more casual or dressy?" she asks, looking back at me. I thought for a minute.
"Well, we're going to the movies so casual," I tell her. She continues to look for an outfit.
"What are you going to see?" she asks, trying to distract me. I'm not even nervous. I don't like Jesse. The only reason I said yes is because I'm trying to get my mind off the Russian hunk that is my bodyguard. I wish he was the one I was going out with tonight.
"The Possession," I say, not really getting into the conversation. Lissa throws a pair of dark blue jeggings at me fo

"Rose? Rose!" Lissa snaps.
"Huh?" I say, annoyed.
"I asked if you can get another ride home so I can go to Christian's place. You know since you two live opposite ways," she says, also annoyed. She probably already asked a few times.
"Yeah sure. Have fun," I tell her as she starts to walk to her car. Then I grab her wrist, "Not too much fun though." I wink. She rolls her eyes at me.
"You got it, Rose," Liss says, laughing.
"Use protection! I'm not helpin' you take care of a baby!" I call after her. She glances back at me, blushing with wide eyes. I wink and stick my tongue out at her. I head to the gym to find Dimitri.
"Comrade?" I call, walking into the gym. He pokes his head out of the his office, sees it's me and comes to the front doors of the gym.
"Yes, Roza?" he asks. His voice sends shivers down my spine. It's so fucking sexy.
"Roza?" I ask, puzzled. He smiles slightly.
"Your name in Russian," he explains. I nod.
"Anyway, Lissa went to her boyfriend's house so I d
