Chapter 6 - You Won't Hurt Me, Roza
"Comrade. It's time to wake up, baby," I heard my Roza's tear-filled voice plead. I opened my eyes and stared into hers. She smiled sadly down at me and kissed my forehead, "I need you to wake up now. I need you." Now I'm confused.
"Roza, I am awake baby," I said. She couldn't hear me. I was floating gently. Fully aware of my surroundings. But I was still unconscious. My Roza couldn't hear me but continued to cry.
"Our baby's getting so big so fast. You can't miss it. We need you. I need you. God, Dimitri, I need you more than I need air. Wake up," she pleaded. I tried. I tried so hard. But I just couldn't wake up. I was in-between life and death. Deep down, I know it's the life-support keeping me alive. But I like to think it's Roza. My Roza.
"Dimitri. I need you. Wake up!" I sobbed against his shoulder and held his hand tightly in my own. My other hand rested on my slightly buldging stomach, "Please wake up."
"Rose," Baba came up behind m

Chapter 5 - Dimitri
I was pacing back and forth, waiting for my phone to ring. Dimitri has been gone for three days and is supossed to be back in two. He's called me everyday at ten p.m. to say good night. It's ten-thirty. He hasn't called yet. I felt sick.
"Kizim, stop pacing. I'm sure Dimitri's fine," Abe told me, "He can take care of himself. Maybe his phone died."
"His phone?" I exclaimed, "He's so fucking organized, he'd never let his phone die. Maybe he died! And if he died, then I don't know what I'll do. I need him. Our child needs him! Oh God, I'm gonna be sick."
My phone finally rang. But it scared me and I screamed. I then answered it.
"Dimitri," I breathed into the phone.
"Is this Roza?" a voice that is not my Dimitri's asked. I checked the caller ID, it said Comrade <3.
"It's Rose," I snapped, "Only Dimitri calls me Roza. Now who the hell are you and why do you have his phone?"
"My name is Xander Harris. I was on the rescue mission with Dimitri. He was hurt badly.

Chapter 4 - Eating For Two
"Rose," Liss said from behind me, "How you doing?"
"Not good," I told her honestly, "Dimitri left this morning." Lissa came over and hugged me tight. I hugged her back just as tight. She pulled away to look at me but didn't let go. I looked into her jade-green eyes.
"Okay. What do you need to tell me?" I asked.
"The queen set a date for Adrian and Tasha's trial," she said slowly, carefully. I stiffened at the mention of the two people who caused me so much pain. I nodded.
"And when is this happening?"
"Three-weeks from today." I nodded again.
"I'll be there," I said, sounding way stronger than I felt. The dream started to fade and my body started shaking slighty.
"Someone's waking you up. Bye Rose," Lissa said sadly.
"Bye Liss. Love you."
"Love you too."
"Rose. Wake-up kizim," Abe said as he continued to shake me gently, "I need to tell you something."
"If it's about the trial, I know. Liss just told me," I said, wipping sleep from my eyes. He nodded.

Chapter 3 - Hey Liss
"Why haven't I learned about alchemists in school? You'd think that would be a good thing to know, or maybe that's just me," I complained after everything had been explained to me. Sydney still looked really uncomfortable, "And why are you so tense?"
"You people are unnatural," she answered in a clipped tone. I was taken aback. No on has ever called me unnatural before, except that one time I put ketchup on a taco, but what was I supossed to do, we were out of hot sauce! (A/N: Sound familar?)
"That's a bit rude, don't ya think?" I asked in true Rose Hathaway style.
"Not as rude as drinking blood," was Sydney's dry response. In all honesty, I was impressed. Not many people can come up with a good comeback to me. But I'm never going to let her no that.
"I don't drink blood, I much prefer Pepsi."
"I'm not an idiot. But you are the unnatural spawn of the bloodsuckers when they still hooked up with humans," the disgust in her tone was evident.
"There you go again w

Chapter 2 - What Are Alchemists?
I woke up to a kiss on my shoulder blade. I rolled over and gazed into Dimitri's warm, brown eyes.
"Good-morning, beautiful," he whispered.
"'Morning," I grinned at him then kissed his lips softly. I kissed him again, harder this time. I rolled us over so I was stratling his waist. I leaned down and placed a passionate kiss on his lips which he returned instantly. I felt him press against my thigh, "Someone's happy to see me."
"I'm always happy to see you, Roza," then he flipped us over so he was on top. He kissed me hard and his hands trailed up my stomach underneath my shirt. I moaned into his mouth. The door burst open and we sprang apart.
"Who wants breakfast?" Abe exclaimed, coming into the room with a tray full of food.
"If you didn't have food right now, Baba, I would kill you for always ruining the mood," I told him, utterly serious.
"You love me, kizim, you know you do," he grinned, barring his fangs. I rolled my eyes.
"I need a shower," D
The Darkest Days-Prologue
Prologue - There's Always Something
After dying and being brought back and bonded to my best friend, losing another best friend to Strigoi, almost killing myself, and being kidnapped by to lovestruck psycos, you would have thought I've seen it all. But now with the Strigoi closing in on Baia, my fiance going off to fight them, and getting used to the idea of my mom's and my own pregnancy, I've never been more stressed. I will be living with my parents while Dimitri's away and I'm not sure if I can handle listening to my parents having sex. I guess I'm in for quite a ride. Oh, by the way, my name's Rose Hathaway, I just met my father and am waiting for my friends to move to Russia to be with me, my finace, and our family's and my life has never been more hectic. Well, there's always something.

Chapter 1 - I Promise
"Don't they have enough guardians without taking you too?" I pleaded.
"Roza, I'm so sorry but I have to. I have to protect you and our child. Plus there's the rest of our family," Dimitri tried to console me.
"But it's not fair! After everything that's happened in the past month and now I might loose you! I can't do that! I won't," I cried, tears streaming down my face. He pulled me into his arms, holding me close and stroking my back.
"Everything will be fine. We have a plan, it's not fool-proof but I think it will all work out. I will come back to you. Besides, I don't even leave until tomorrow," he reasoned. I nodded, still crying.
"Belikov's a great guardian and a better man, kizim, he'll be fine," my father, Abe Mazur, spoke up from his spot on the couch. Even in his own home he wears flashy suits with even flashier ties. This one is black with neon orange.
"You don't know that for sure! What if a bunch of Strigoi overpower him?" I asked, panicked.

Chapter 18 - My Happily Ever After
"Hey guys," I said, "I missed you. Mom, I'm surprised you're here. And who's that," I pointed to the unfamiliar man. There were a bunch of 'hey's and 'glad you're okay's and hugs. Then my mom stepped forward with the man.
"Of course I'm here, Rose. You're my daughter, I love you and I was worried about you. And this," she gestured to the man, "is you're father, Abe Mazur."
My jaw just about hit the floor. This man in a flashy grey suit with a bright green tie, almost the color of Lissa's eyes, was my father. He has gold jewlery glinting in his ears and around his neck. And he's my father.
"You're my dad?" I managed to squeak out.
"I am. I'm so glad to finally meet you, Rose. I hope to be part of you're life from this point on," Abe told me and, yeah, he has a Turkish accent. I didn't know what to say.
"Roza, he helped me find you. If it wasn't for Abe, I never would have gotten to you on time," Dimitri spoke up from beside me, pain evident on his

Chapter 17 - Mismatched Family
"Abe! I understand we can't just rush straight into this, but if we don't her soon, I'm goning to have a heartattack!" I exclaimed. We had been searching for all the information possible to find my Roza for the past two days. I haven't slept since she was taken. I need her in my arms again. Soon.
"Calm down, Belikov. My men saw Tasha Ozera today. They grabbed her and are on their way here as we speak," Abe responded calmly. The sound of the door opening caught both of our attentions.
"Dimka! Oh, I'm so glad you're here! Will you please get these idiots to untie me?" Tasha's irritating voice rang through the room.
"Shut up," I snapped, "You're here to tell me where you took my girl and then you're going to prison." She looked shocked.
"Dimitri, why do you care so much about that bloodwhore? I'm a Moroi! I'm royal, for fuck's sake and all you care about is that little slut! Dimka, she's a dhamphir!" she shierked.
"In case you haven't noticed Tasha, I'm
