    Something has seriously got to be wrong with her. Besides the damn withdraw that she was feeling from whatever drugs that had been in her system because each damn time those two simple words left Luca's lips. Lia could feel her heart flutter and she felt overly giddy over the Mafia leaver's praise. Maybe some residue was still on her lips or something and she was getting a contact high before she washed off last night.

    "Welcome," Aelia replied quietly and picked up her fork once Luca had done the same. Her bright green eyes focused on the food that was in front of her. Nibbling on the hot food a little bit. Her stomach still feeling uneasy as she ate something more filling than the toast and the fruit that she had yesterday.

    Glancing up towards Luca, Lia couldn't help but to let out a tired sigh. "Tired, and my muscles feel spent." She told him honestly before she sat back and ran a hand through her still-damp hair. "But, I feel a lot better then yesterday." She finished, wondering if she had ran her mouth to long and that Luca would grow annoyed with her for speaking more then two words to reply to his question.

    "Actually, um." Aelia paused in her words as she looked at her plate. Moving around her food for a moment before looking back up towards Luca. "I have to go to the museum today, if that's alright. It's for a class, I need to take notes so I don't know how long I'll be." She informed him, hoping that he wouldn't be upset that the plans happened so soon.

    Luca gave Aelia a small nod as she mentioned how she felt. He supposed that made sense. While she had rested for most of the day yesterday, it probably was not a fulfilling sleep. And, outside of that, it also made sense that her muscles were still spent after that had happened. She should be back to normal completely by tomorrow... though it still seemed best to keep an eye on Aelia. He didn't want her condition worsening for any reason and it was his responsibility to take care of her. Even if Aelia did not see it that way. In fact, it was probably better that she didn't.

    "That is good to hear, that you feel better," Luca told her gently before he took another bite of his food. Though as Aelia continued to speak, he let out a low hum. She planned on heading to the museum? The man took a long look at her before refocusing his glaze back on his food. Should he really let her go out alone after what had happened? Probably not. What if something were to happen again? Or maybe Aelia wasn't feeling as well as she claimed to be. Maybe he needed to start keeping a better eye on her. After all, her association with him made her a target.

    "I'll come with you." Luca told her as he looked back up at Aelia. "To the art museum. What time would you like to go?" He asked her as he sat up a little straighter in his chair. The man did his best to ensure that it sounded like he wasn't asking, that she didn't have an option without being overly rude or pushy about it. But he was not going to let her head off out of the house today without him by her side.

    It was a little odd that he had to care for someone like this that was not his family or a lover. A very odd sensation indeed... He just had to remind himself that he was doing this for himself, so that he wouldn't get kicked out of France when she died. Right? Yeah, that was why he was doing this.

    Hearing Luca say that he was going to come with her caused Lia to miss her mouth when she went to take a bite of her food. Instead, the fork fell from her grip and handed back on her plate. Her bright green eyes widening ever so slightly as she listened to him. Hearing Lica says that he was to go with her, was the last thing that Aelia thought was going to happen.

    "O-oh." Aelia couldn't help but stutter as she slowly sat back up in her chair. Her shoulders deflating ever so slightly as she looked at the man. Not a shred of defiance in her as she looked at the older man with curiosity. She didn't know why he'd want to go with her. She was just going to be taking notes, but, then again. There was bound to be a lot of people there today, so maybe he was just scared that there could be someone there that he knew or something.

    "I was thinking of going after breakfast," Aelia said quietly, her lips moving into a slight frown. "Is that okay? I know you've got a lot of work to do." She said quietly, although she, in fact, had no idea what Luca did when he went downstairs, nor did she want to know really. "We can go a little bit later if that'll be better for you though, I don't mind." Aelia tried to offer him a small smile, although it didn't reach her eyes.

    An eyebrow raised on Luca's face as he watched Aelia drop the fork onto her plate. He didn't think what he said really should have caused a reaction like that, but he supposed that his decision could be seen as a little strange...though maybe not that strange. Though, Luca decided not to say anything about her reaction and instead, moved forward with his decision. At least Aelia was not trying to stop him. She was willing to change what time they went based on what he wanted so that was a good sign, right?

    "After breakfast is okay with me." With that said, Luca grabbed his plate from the table and stood up. "I will be ready in 20 minutes. Just tell me when you are ready to go after that." After speaking, Luca made his way out of the dining room and went own into the basement. There were a few things he needed to handle before taking the rest of the day off. Though it was mostly just letting his underlings know that he was going to be unavailable for the rest of the day, and not to bother him unless it was some kind of emergency.

    20 minutes went by before Luca came back upstairs, now holding an empty plate. He headed to the kitchen and set the plate down into the sink. Then Luca settled down in the living room, messing around on his phone as he waited for Aelia to come and collect him.

    It was a big shock to Aelia that Luca would go out of his way to do something with her. Usually, they tiptoed around each other. She'd go off do her own thing, and he'd do his. Only letting him know if she'd be late because of the damn tracking chips he forced her to get inserted into her body and her phone.

    Watching with wary eyes, Aelia watched as Luca went to his little man cave. Watching for a couple of moments as she wondered if he'd come in to tell her that he was joking or something. Although, when he didn't, Lia took the hint and finished her breakfast in quiet before moving to wash her plate and heading upstairs to finish getting ready for the day. As the last thing she wanted, was for him to get mad at her for taking so long.

    After heading back to their bedroom, Aelia changed into something more fitting for the museum then her PJ's. Then, she added a little bit of mascara and lip gloss before she headed down the stairs to the living room. A slight look of surprise appeared on her face for a brief moment before a small smile appeared on her lips. "H-hey, ready?" Lia asked quietly, her head tilting ever so slightly.

    Once Luca said that he was ready, Lia offered a small nod of her bead before following him out of the house. Her over the shoulder bag was reading near the front door, so that she could grab it in a pinch, was swung over her shoulder. "Thanks again for coming with me, Luca," Lia said quietly as she got into his car.
