Chapter 13 - I Can Only Hope
Beep. Beep. Beep. What the fuck? Crash. Oh. Stupid alarm clock. I opened my eyes to see my own personal Russian God smirking down at me. I looked to the wall across from the bed to see our smashed alarm clock. I blushed.
"Oopps," I smiled as inoccently as I could at Dimitri. He just shook his head and chuckled. I settled in to fall back asleep but Dimitri decided against that plan. He got up and ripped the covers from my body. "Hey!"
"Get ready for school," he told me before giving me a kiss and starting to get ready himself. I groaned but got up anyway. I went to take a shower mumbling about stupid Russian school the whole way. After my quick shower I put on a pair of dark skinny jeans, a dark purple cami and a deep red, long-sleeved V-neck. I slipped on my boots and headed downstairs.
"Roza!" Olena and Viktoria exclaimed together. I smiled at everyone.
"Good morning guys."
"Did you sleep well?" Karolina asked from her seat where she was feeding Zoya.

Chapter 12 - Love You More
After looking at what seemed like fifty apartments, we found the one. It was gorgeous. The inside had cream colored walls in the living room and kitchen. The bathroom was painted a light aqua, while the single bedroom was deep brown. All the rooms had hardwood floors. There was a balcony off the bedroom overlooking most of Baia. I was standing out on the balcony, looking out when Dimitri wrapped his arms around my waist.
"Is this the one, my love?" he asked.
"I think it is," I said with a huge smile.
"Good. We can go talk to the landlord and probably move in next week," he said with a smile just as big as mine, "Oh, and Roza?"
"I forgot to tell you, Mamma enrolled you in St. Basil's yesterday. You start tomorrow. Please don't be mad," he said in a rush. I laughed which made him give me a confused look. I gave him a kiss on the cheek.
"Thank you. I need to graduate high school. I will not be a dropout," I explained. He nodded and we then p

Chapter 11 - Apartment Hunting
I was in the woods at St. Vlad's. I was wearing jeans and a long-sleeved shirt. That's unusual.
"Adrian! Get your sorry ass out here! I swear to God if I ever see you again, I will rip your balls of!" I screamed.
"Rose?" came Lissa's sweet voice. I spun around and there she stood, in a light pink dress, with tears in her jade-green eyes. I ran at her and tackled her to the ground.
"Lissa! I am soooo sorry! I love you but I can't be there anymore but I have so much to tell you! Oh my God! Liss, you're dream-walking! I'm so proud," I screamed at her, holding her tight. She clung to me just as tightly.
"Rose, you have nothing to apoligize for. I'm the one whose sorry. I've been a horrible friend. I was hoping that Tasha and Dimitri would get together but I had no clue you guys love each other! I should have known. I mean really, how else could he make you listen? Anyway, I love you, too and I miss you but I understand why you guys left. So tell me what

Chapter 10 - Rusty Spoon
"Food's ready!" Olena called out from the kitchen. I followed Dimitri and his sisters into the kitchen from the living room where we had been getting to know each other a little better. I feel so at home here and Dimitri's family is wonderful, so loving and kind. But I stopped dead when I walked into the kitchen. There was enough food to feed all of St. Vlad's. Dimitri stopped behind me and wrapped his arms around me.
"Mamma always makes enough food to feed an army. That's just the way it is with her. Just eat what you'd like, baby, but eat. You need to get healthy," he whispered in my ear and then kissed my neck softly. I nodded and walked fully into the kitchen and took a seat next to Viktoria and Dimitri sat beside me. He took my hand and squeezed lightly. We made light conversation about my friends from St. Vlad's and about everyone else's lives and then Karolina asked us all to be quiet for a story. So we did.
"So this story is mainly for Roza because

Chapter 9 - Meeting the Family
The next morning, I woke up to Dimitri kissing my neck. I smiled softly and sighed. I felt him smile against my neck as he kissed me once more.
"Good morning, my beautiful Roza," he whispered against my skin, making me shiver.
"Good morning, Comrade," I murmured, sleepily and pressed myself closer to him. That's when I felt it. I smirked, "Happy to see me?" was my innocent question. He groaned.
"Roza. I am always happy to see you," I smiled and rolled over so I was straddling him, "But, we are not doing this until you are one-hundred percent better." I pouted, "Don't look at me like that! I need you healthy."
"Fine," I huffed, "At least take a shower with me?" I asked him hopefully. He regarded me warily for a moment before nodding. I squealed and ran into the bathroom. He chuckled following me. After our shower, we got dressed and checked out of the hotel. He took me to breakfast and showed me some of the things in Omsk. We then rented a car and sta

Chapter 8 - All I Know
We were both silent as we boarded the plane, but it was comfortable silent. We had no need for words, we just craved each other's pressence after so long of being apart. Dimitri gave me the window seat and he sat beside me. Thankfully, the aisle seat was empty so we had some privacy. I rested my head on his shoulder and he wrapped his arm around me as best as he could with the armrest in the way. As we cuddled together, I felt the need to make sure he wasn't going to leave me.
"Comrade?" I asked. He looked down at me with a small smile, so I continued, "You're not just doing this because of my breakdown, right? You're going to stay with me after I'm better?" My voice cracked at the end.
"Oh, Roza. I promise that I am doing this because I love you and that I will never leave you. Your breakdown, as you put it, just made me realize that I can't life without you any longer," he told me, staring into my eyes. I smiled at him.
"Good," I said as I settled down to

Chapter 7 - Home
"Dimitri? What if we get caught?" I asked softly as we drove to the front gates.
"We won't," he told me. He sounded so sure, I just didn't know if I believed it yet. "Roza, why don't you pick the radio station for once?"
"Really?" I asked, shocked. He nodded and I didn't waste another second, turning the dial until I found a pop/rock channel. What the Hell by Avril Lavigne came on and I smiled softly. Dimitri got to the gate by now and talked to the guardian on duty and he let us out. Dimitri claimed he was taking me shopping to help me feel better and it was cleared by Alberta and Kirova. I honestly wasn't surprised the guardian at the gate bought it; most people think Dimitri would never lie.
Dimitri took my hand in his as soon as we left the wards, "I promise that I will always protect you. I love you so much, my Roza." His words helped to mend a small piece of my shattered heart. When we had been driving for over an hour, my curiousity got the best of me.

Chapter 6 - Take Me Away
I woke up in the clinic with Dimitri holding my hand. He looked so, so worried. We studied each other for a few moments.
"Roza," he started, "Dr. Olenski is going to put you on antidepressants. Also, you are going to be eating meals specifically designed to get your weight back up to healthy levels. I'll be by your side most of the time to make sure you're making progress and healing. I'm here for you, Roza. Please talk to me."
"Can you take me back to my dorm please? I have homework," I said, looking down. He nodded and we left. We had to stop to get my antidepressants and discharge me from the clinic. Then we walked silently to my dorm. When we went inside, I didn't do homework like I said I was going to. Instead, I wrote my suicide note. It read:
I'd say I'm sorry for leaving this world, but I'm not. It's what I needed to do. However, I have some last words to all of my friends. Liss, I'll start with you. I'm sorry for leaving you, but I

Chapter 5 - Why Her?
Two weeks earlier
Rose was in my room. And we were kissing. Frantic, passinate kisses. She was wearing only underwear and I coudn't help but stare at this amazing creature before me. I was only in my boxers and she seemed to like the view as much as I did.
"Roza, I love you," I murmured against the warm, soft skin of her neck.
"I love you too, Dimitri," my Roza whispered. She was finally mine. My Roza. Just as we got rid of the rest of our clothing-
My phone rang. "Fuck!" I swore in Russian.
"Belikov," I answered a bit irrate.
"Guardian Belikov, I'm sorry to wake you but there's screaming coming from Ms. Hathaway's room, could you please-" came through the other line but I tuned out the rest. All that mattered was Rose.
"On my way," I said, quickly pulling on some clothes and hanging up. I made it to her dorm in record time. I started pounding on the door, not sure if she was awake yet or not. When she didn't open it, I used the spare key I was given in case o
