We've been on the plane for a while and I needed a guitar. 

" Dad are there any guitars on the plane? Like electric ones?"

 He nodded and asked Pavel to get me one  and he did.

I did some scales and got ready to do , King For A Day( Pierce the Veil ft Kellin Quin, start video up top)

Dare me to jump off of this Jersey bridge
I bet you never had a Friday night like this
Keep it up, keep it up, let's raise our hands
I take a look up at the sky and I see
Red for the cancer, red for the wealthy
Red for the drink that's mixed with suicide
Everything red
Please, won't you push me for the last time
Let's scream until there's nothing left
So sick of playing, I don't want this anymore
The thought of you's no fucking fun
You want a martyr, I'll be one
Because enough's enough, we're done
You told me think about it, well I did
Now I don't wanna feel a thing anymore
I'm tired of begging for the things that I want
I'm over sleeping like a dog on the floor
The thing I think I love
Will surely bring me pain
Intoxication, paranoia, and a lot of fame
Three cheers for throwing up
Pubescent drama queen
You make me sick, I make it worse by drinking late
Scream until there's nothing left
So sick of playing, I don't want to anymore
The thought of you's no fucking fun
You want a martyr I'll be one
Because enough's enough, we're done
You told me think about it, well I did
Now I don't wanna feel a thing anymore
I'm tired of begging for the things that I want
I'm over sleeping like a dog on the floor
Imagine living like a king someday
A single night without a ghost in the walls
And if the bass shakes the earth underground
We'll start a new revolution now
(Now! Alright here we go)
Hail Mary, forgive me
Blood for blood, hearts beating
Come at me, now this is war!
Fuck with this new beat
Oh!
Now terror begins inside a bloodless vein
I was just a product of the street youth rage
Born in this world without a voice or say
Caught in the spokes with an abandoned brain
I know you well but this ain't a game
Blow the smoke in diamond
shape
Dying is a gift so close your eyes and rest in peace
You told me think about it, well I did
Now I don't wanna feel a thing anymore
I'm tired of begging for the things that I want
I'm over sleeping like a dog on the floor
Imagine living like a king someday
A single night without a ghost in the walls
We are the shadows screaming take us now
We'd rather die than live to rust on the ground
Shit


" I feel better now." I looked out side and saw that we were entering Russia " Hey would it be weird if I screamed something right now?"

" No go ahead Rose," Dimitri said it like he knew I was going to do something but he was in for a suprise

"Для России-матушки!!!" ( Russian-- For Mother Russia!!!)

That got them dieing of laughter. " Seriously Rose, that was probably the funniest thing you could've said upon return to Russia" Dimitri was still laughing.

I chuckled and knew everything would be alright. I had Dimitri and we could go public,  I have my father who loves me, and soon I'll meet my grandmother. 

(TIME SKIP) 

The plane landed and we got off. I heard Dimitri sigh in content.   He's in familiar territory, I thought.  He saw me looking and smiled. 

"Rose? Dimitri agreed to let you stay with him and his family. I would love for you to stay with me but my enemies would bring danger to you. "

"Its okay Abe. I don't think I want to have to navigate a huge house." He laughed and hugged me. Soon Dimitri and I were in a car on our way to Baia. We soon stopped in front if a small white house. Dimitri got out of the car and I followed suite. 

We walked right up to the door and Dimitri pulled out a small key. He actually looked nervous. 

"Aww is theBig Bad Russian God scared that mama's gonna spank him for coming hone after curfew. "

He laughed " RussianGod? Where do you come up with this stuff? "

"At the academy most of the no vices called you the Antisocial  God. When I cane back to the academy when I told Mason that they were giving me extra practice sessions he literally said,  that man is a god. "

He shook his head and turned the key and in  the lock. We entered to see a girl around my age with brown hair and eyes coming into the small hallway. This must be his little sister. Her has dropped and she barrkd into ME! Me? WTF? 

"OMG! Yeva was right! "

"Hey don't mind you brother who you haven't seen in like five years or anything. Nope GI straight to the stranger who could take you as a threat and really hurt you. Perfect. "

Dimitri just laughed "I missed you to Viktoria."

"DIMKA!! "She charged him but he was ready. 

"Mama!! Dimka's home and he's brought a girl!! He isn't gay!! Shit I lost the bet! "

I burst out laughing"You made a bet in whether Dimitri is gay or not. " Dimitri looked scandalized. 

"I'm not gay Vika, I never have been. "

Dimitri shook his head and led me into a small sitting room. We found a woman in her mid 40s,  two women in early and mid 20s, one pregnant andone holding a baby, a little bit around 10, and a elderly woman who I assumed was his grandmother. 

"Ha Dimka's not gay! " the one holding the baby said to the pregnant one "Pay up! "

"Dude your family is my kind if people"I said laughing. When I  spoke the attention turned to me after this  had hugged Dimitri. 

"Who are you" his mother Olena asked

"I'm Rose,  Rose Hathaway" they all gasped besides Yeva

"You're the Rose Hathaway? As in the Badass runaway who soared ranks if Guardians and you haven't even graduated? As in you have two molinja marks? " I nodded

"Your a legend. Your a hero to all female novices." 

"I don't considere the marks upon my neck legendary. I don't consider myself legendary. Although I do like making female novices feel better,  a lot if pain came with these marks. And not just the tattoo needle. One if my childhood friends who I considered a big brother sacrificed himself in order to give me a chance to decapitate the strigoi. "

"So Dimitri,  why is Roza here with you? "

He looked at me asking me for permission. I nodded and he took my hand. 

"Rose's father is Abe Mazur,  yesterday she and I were training when her mother walked into the gym. Rose started asking questions and Janine answered them. Practice was going normal until Rose called me my nickname and Janine started correcting immediately corrected her. Janine called her a slur which made Rose get angry. Then Janine said she didn't raise Rose right. But the thing is she didn't raise Rose at all. Rise started telling her everything that she had done fie Janine since she was dropped off at the academy. Then Janine said that she had never wanted Rose. That it had been to late fir an abortion. After that the guardians called Abe. After Rose went to pack she went to tell her friend. When she arrived back at her room,  she found Adrian Ivashkov waiting on her bed half naked. He tried to rape Rose,  he was mad that she would choose me over him. He managed to remove her shirt before I barged in. Rose was born here and her mother stole her away when she was about four. That's why we're here. Her father also thinks she'd be safer here than anywhere his enemies could try and get to her. "

"Welcome home Roza"Yeva's voice filled the air

"My flower has returned after finding my grandson. The flower has found her other half". 

I couldn't say anything before the old woman wrapped her arms around me and I uttered a breathy "Babushka? "
