Dimitri's POV

                    After Rose had spent her heart out shopping, we headed back to the car where she managed to stuff all of her things into the spacious truck of the SUV. It amazed me that it all fit. She climbed into the front seat and looked thoughtful as I got in.


"Yes, Roza?"

"This is a question that would freak most guys out but....what are we? I'll go through the scale. F*** buddies, friends with benefits, lovers, dating, girlfriend/boyfriend, partners, and I doubt we're anything higher than that."

"What's higher than partners?"

"Engaged. Married. Expecting couple. Blah blah blah." I chuckled as she put her chin in her hand.

"I would say we're between girlfriend/boyfriend and partners." I informed.

"That high? Really?"

"I love you and you've proved that you love me."

"I proved it? How?" She was full of questions.

"We did kind of seal that deal last night. I am aware that you were a virgin before that, you know. I also know that you wouldn't do that with just anyone. I mean something to you and you mean something to me." She smiled and laid her head on my shoulder.

"I love you." She sighed happily.

"I love you more." I said. She giggled and kissed my cheek.

"There is no way." I smiled and kissed the top of her head. She turned on the radio and looked at me.

"Are you really willing to give up children for some silly schoolgirl?"

"No." She pulled back from me before I added, "I am willing to sacrifice children for you." A smiled took possession of her lips. I kissed her gently before touching her cheek.

"I'd give up anything for you." She smiled but it didn't reach her eyes.

"Roza, I will tell you this so many times. I don't care if we can't have kids together. And if we somehow can, I'd be as happy as I would be if we were adopting a baby."

"I believe you." She said and leaned back on me. I smiled. I would give anything for this woman. She fell asleep before the others even got to the car. Once Tasha got over here, she opened the passenger door but frowned when she saw Rose.

"Ahem." Tasha said. Rose moved in her sleep, eyes beginning to flutter.

"Are we back, Dimitri?" She asked me.

"No, Roza." She looked around before her eyes settled on Tasha.

"What?" She asked.

"Can you climb in back?" Tasha asked.

"No." Rose made a point by putting on the seatbelt and crossing her arms. Night was beginning to fall and there was no way we could get back without trouble. Ever since the massacre at Art's, Missoula was also a known target.

"We'll have to find a motel, Belikov." Stan said.

"I know. There's one in a mile or two." Tasha glared at Rose before slamming the car door shut and getting in back. Rose laid back on my shoulder and closed her eyes. Once we got to the closest but most discreet motel, we had to decide who was rooming with who.

"Dimitri and Rose. Tasha and me. And Stan, you get to be alone." Alberta said.

"Shouldn't the girls be together?" Tasha glared at where Rose sleepily leaned on me.
