"where are you hurt?" Asked Vincenzo.
"He hit me on my butt with his belt. Oh god Vinci it hurts. I can't even sit down." Cried, Rose.
"There must be a numbing cream here somewhere. Did you apply it" asked Vincenzo?
"Yes. I found it and I applied it. But how do you know about it?" Asked Rose.
"I am also a dom in training. And I know the protocol of BDSM. Were you role-playing or were you in the playroom when he hit you?" Asked Vincenzo.
"No. He hit me on the dining table. It was not a BDSM play it was pure abuse. He hates me and says he will take revenge for Sofia's death from me. Vinci, Sofia died in an accident how am I responsible for her death? He is crazy. Oh god, he will kill me" lied Rose and cried.
"No Rose. He won't kill you. He can never. I know him. He is my brother. And... You know what let me talk to him. I know he will listen to me. We all grew up together not like cousins but as brothers." Said Vincenzo.
"No Vinci. Don't do that. He threatened me to ruin my family's business and lives. I can't lose my family. I am going to try to work this marriage. I am going to make him realise I am his wife and will try to love him though it will be very difficult cause I love you." Said Rose.
"I love you to Rosie. But I can't betray my brother. Tell me what I should do and I will try to help you with that." Said Vincenzo.
Rose hugged him and said "I only want your support in what I want to do. I want your trust and when I can't handle him anymore I want you to stand by me."
"You have my support. I will do my best for you. Rosie, I am going back to college tomorrow. I still have a few more months to graduate. And then I'll be here in LA with dad. If you need help let me know. I am only a phone call away. And I think he is trying to make you his submissive. So try to co-operate. If you can't handle it, talk to him. He is a very respected Dom. And I know he forcefully married you but I know you will change his behaviour and make him forget about his revenge with your charm. I lost you, Rosie. And I envy Ermanno to have claimed you as his. I respect your relationship with my brother and will never cross the line between a brother-in-law and sister-in-law but also do remember you will always be my friend and you can always count on me to protect you.
All of this is new Rosie. Give it a chance and if you still can't handle it let me know and together we will find a solution. Okay?"
Rose didn't like he was supporting his brother and not her.
Rose moved away from him and stood in front of the kitchen counter and said "you are defending your brother over his abuse on me. I didn't want to marry him. He forced me to marry him. He is forcing himself on me every day. He is beating me up. You know everything about me. You know my parents care only about their status. They only accepted me now cause I am married to Ermanno Devonte. Oh god, I don't have anyone who would help me" lied and cried Rose.
"Don't say that. I will support you. All I am saying is that you give him a chance, give this marriage a chance. Men in my family love their wives. I am sure in time you will see that Ermanno will love you too. There must be some reason for you two to have gotten together. Please, Rosie, try to see the good in him and in this marriage. And if you still feel you can't stay with him. I promise to help you in getting out of this marriage. I promise. Call me anytime you want to talk. I'll always pick your phone and we can talk as long as you want. Okay, Rosie?" Said Vincenzo turning her to look at him.
"You said you love me." Said Rose.
"I always will. You are the first girl I ever loved. I can never forget you. But love is not a conquest it's a feeling and it doesn't need to be sexual either. I love your sweet, innocent and caring nature. I will always love that about you. I will always care and I know we are comfortable with eachother so we can help eachother and stay friends in family." Said Vincenzo.
Rose smiled at Vincenzo and said "you talk so mature. Nothing like the guy who always would want to touch and lick my cupcakes and want to shove his dick in my mouth"
"Okay, I am trying really hard to ignore that you are not wearing any bra and pants so let's not bring that up." Said Vincenzo.
Rose laughed and said "and you are back"
Vincenzo laughed with her and after a few minutes left saying he will meet her in person in Thomas and Julia's wedding.
Rose said goodbye to Vincenzo and shook her head.
"Can't believe he would not fall for my sad being abused story. Don't worry, you will Vinci." Said Rose to herself.
Just as she was coming inside the apartment she heard her phone ring. It was Sabrina.
Rose smiled and picked the phone and with a hoarse voice said
"Oh my. What's wrong Rose? What happened to your voice? Were you crying?" Asked Sabrina.
Rose sniffed and said "no. I was not" in an almost whisper.
"Don't lie to me. Tell me what's wrong"
"Mummy. Can I call you mummy?"
"Oh, Rose. I will not like if you call me anything else"
"Mummy. I don't think Ermanno is over Sofia and he doesn't love me. He ... He.. he hits me. Saying I am responsible for her death. Oh, mummy yesterday he hit me with a belt on my butt. I can't even sit down. Oh, mummy, it hurts so bad. I applied this numbing cream but it still hurts" cried, Rose. Well acted.
"Oh god. What do I do? Rose, I thought he will forget about Sofia if he marries. And oh god. Rose please I request you to give him some time. Please make him forget Sofia. And let me talk to him about not hurting you."
"NO. No. Please. He will hurt me more. As you said, I will give him time and help him forget Sofia in time. Please do not mention this to anyone. I just couldn't control myself from telling you. You are like my mother, right? And I can tell you anything and you will keep it between us, right?"
"Yes. I am like your mother. And I promise to keep everything between us. And if you ever need me to help you in any way always remember that I will always help you and take your side"
Rose Smirked and said "thank you, mummy. And I promise to try my best with Ermanno"
"That's what I expected from you. I know you will make him forget everything and have a happy life with him. Bless you" said Sabrina and they both said goodbye and hung the phone.
"You are the sweetest person in the world. Ermanno is definitely like his father" said Rose and laughed out loud.
