Chapter Thirty-Two| Leona

"Dario." My eyes widen and I rub my eyes to make sure he's actually there and I'm not dreaming.

"It's me baby." He whispers, stroking my cheek and I sit up slowly, my lips beginning to tremble.

"H-How? I thought you were d-dead!" I throw myself into his arms, straddling him.

"I told you to trust me right?" He smirks looking up at me.

"Rio! I can't tell you how scared I was, I thought you got caught up in the explosion or Cane had killed you and you're here just smirking like nothing happened!" I exclaim and he gives me a sad smile, leaning forward to kiss my chin.

"I'm sorry, princess." My eyes begin to water again. "Come here." He wraps his arms tight around me as I begin to sob into the crook of his neck.

"I love you so much." I whimper and feel his arms tighten around mine.

We embrace each other for the next twenty minutes until I pull away and ask him the question that has just popped into my mind.

"What happened to Cane?" I whisper, biting my lip as I begin to play with his tie.

"You really wanna know?" He raises his eyebrows.


"He actually killed himself." My eyes widen. "I told him some home truths, so he shot himself in the head, I quickly made my way out of the building just before the second explosion." I gasp at his words and look at him with wide eyes.

"B-But why did it take you so long to get back to me?!" I check the time and my eyes widen. "It's two in the morning, Rio." I tilt my head and he chuckles lightly.

"Took myself to the hospital, I lost my phone back at the office. I thought it would be best I got checked out first before I came back to you." He scratches the back of his head. "Now that I think about it, it probably wasn't the best idea."

"Of course it wasn't you idiot!" I lightly hit his shoulder. "You should have got in contact with me." I whisper and he nods his head in agreement. 

"I know, baby. I'm so sorry, I wasn't thinking." He reaches up to stroke my face and I lean closer into his touch. "Have a bath with me?" I nod my head and climb off of his lap.

He holds his hand out for me to take and I gladly take it and let him lead me to the bathroom. Rio has a quick shower first as I run our bath, I sit on the edge of the tub, swirling the bubbles, lost in thought. 

"Speak to me, baby." I feel Dario gently grab hold of my chin, lifting my head to look up at him.

"So much has happened, less than an hour ago I thought you were dead but now you're're actually here with me." I whisper with wide eyes and he smiles.

"I'm here forever, if you'll let me be." I nod my head at his words. "Right answer, princess." I smile brightly up at him.

We finish running the bath and I bite my lip, staring at Dario's muscular body as he climbs into the soapy water.

I strip out of my pyjamas, feeling his heavy stare on me and then take a seat in between his legs. I rest my head against his chest and a sigh of relief escapes my lips as he curls his arms around me.

"I love you, princess." Dario tells me, tightening his arms around me. "I will spend the rest of my life trying to make you happy." I nod my head, a dreamy smile etching onto my face.

"I know you will."

"How are you feeling after everything that has happened, Leona?" He questions seriously and I turn to look up at him and see that his jaw is clenched. "Be honest with me."

"I'll be fine, as long as I have you and Ben, I'll be fine. My mother actually wants to see me so I might travel up north in a couple of days, wanna come?" I ask and watch his eyes widen.

"You want me to meet your mother?" I nod my head eagerly. "Okay."

"Really?" I question in excitement and he chuckles, nodding his head. "She'll be so excited to meet you."

"She knows about me?"

"She knows of you." I smirk.

"Your mother will love me." He says confidently and I playfully roll my eyes.

"Mmm okay." I begin to play with his fingers and then his hand begins to trail further down until his finger begins circling my clit.

I release a small moan, arching my back.

"You like that?" He mumbles, kissing my neck and I nod my head, a breathless gasp escaping my lips. "You're my good girl aren't you?" He lightly bites my earlobe and a whimper escapes my lips.

"Yes." I moan again and turn my head to kiss him. He wraps his free hand around my throat as he begins to rub my clit faster.

I moan into his mouth and wrap my hands around his wrist.

"Please, Rio!" I plead, already beginning to feel my orgasm build.

He pulls away making my eyes widen. "Tell me you love me and I'll let you come." He demands.

"I love you." I whisper and he places his hand back to my throbbing pussy.

"Mmm, I love you too, my sweet girl." He kisses the side of my head and minutes later I'm coming hard. "That's it, baby. Let it all out." He tells me as my legs begin to shake from my explosive orgasm.

It takes me a minute to calm down and I sigh, leaning further against his back.

"Good thing I'm not dead isn't it, princess." He gives me a smug smirk and I roll my eyes.

"Remind me to get that plan b in the morning." I pat his arm and he tenses underneath me.

"You don't want my baby?" He pouts and I raise my eyebrows at him.

"Not now, no." I reply honestly and he nods his head.

"But one day?" He questions hopefully.

"One day."


I'm woken up early in the morning to a panicked Dario who is on the phone, his eyes wide and worried.

I sit up and watch as he hangs up.

"What is it?" I question, watching him rush to put clothes on.

"It's Logan."
