    A small snort escaped from the Prince as he listened to the Princess. A small smile playing along his lips as he listened. "Just play the lovesick puppy, you can't get enough of me," Gio said as he got to the car and moved to her side. As Gio opened her door for her, he leaned against the side as he waited for her to get into the passenger seat.

    Then, as she brought up his little persona among the people, the small smirk disappeared for a second before coming back up. "Whelp, at least you won't have to worry about my acting skills in all of this." He said as he stood up straight. "Why not tell them the truth?" Gio suggested as he walked around towards his side of the car once she was in the passenger seat and her door was closed.

    "We got into a disagreement over something trivial, and then I protected you from the feral's," Gio said and then shrugged his shoulders as if it was no big deal at all. "Wouldn't that be enough to make everyone happy? We don't really need to go into much detail than that, I would think." Closing his own door, Gio buckled up and started the engine of his car. A small smile appearing on his lips as he listened to it purr.

    Arielle let out a small sigh. "I suppose if they want to know more, I'll just tell them that I don't want to talk about it and you can make up whatever heroic scene you want." She told him as she looked over at Gio. It wouldn't be ridiculous for Arielle not want to relive the moment where she thought she was going to get eaten or killed by the feral. And then, Gio could make up whatever he wanted. Though she hoped that he would not go too ridiculous with it if he was given the chance.

    The princess then turned her attention out of the window of the car, letting out a small hum as she did so. That should be enough planning for now, she thought. What they needed to discuss would come to light once they were back at the palace and telling the others what had occurred. Arielle was rather sure they would have a lot of questions but Gio seemed to think they wouldn't.

    "Is there a place in the palace that we would be able to talk privately?" Arielle asked him after a bit. It seemed important that they would be able to discuss their little love agreement. They would need to be on the same page for so much now as they both would just be making it up as they went along.

    The familiar sound of Gio's car's engine was always enough to make him calm down. If he had a bad day? A nice drive would help. If his parents got on his nerves? A nice drive would help. Pretty much anything wrong would vanish as soon as he got into his car and listened to it purr like a little kitten and it just made him feel empowered. Speeding down the street in a brand new top of the line sports car. Nothing was better.

    "Hm?" Gio made a gesture to glance towards the Princess with an arched brow. He wasn't fully paying attention to her as he was in a trance. Listening to the engine as he drove the rode that he knew like the back of his hand. Then, slowly his lips pursed into a thin line as he thought about what the young human next to him asked.

    "My office?" Gio suggested as he cast her another small glance before looking ahead once more. "There's also my room, or the room that we store blood to feed on when we don't have any bleeders available." He said, wincing a little as the last one would probably spook the young girl a little to much. "You know what, scratch the last one. Forget what I said about bleeders." He cleared his throat, not wanting to talk about the humans who like to be fed upon with Arielle.

    Slowly, Gio pulled into the garage where he keeps all of his cars. "Why not say we're going on dates or something?" Gio asked as he cut the engine and looked towards the young girl. "I can take us to that field or something."

    A frown moved along her face as Gio mentioned the bleeders, her heart pounding a bit faster as the thoughts ran through her mind. It definitely wasn't something she wanted him bringing up with her. It made her uncomfortable, thinking about Gio or anyone else feeding on her people. She understood that it happened, knew that they needed it to survive but... well it seemed savage to her. So she was appreciative when the prince was quick to move onto something else.

    "Dates would probably be our best option, as we would be away from everyone and prying eyes." Arielle said softly. "Our rooms and your office would be the next best places to be, if we need to speak immediately." The woman then let out a small sigh as a thought crossed her mind. They wouldn't be able to just get by with only going on dates when they needed to talk, they needed to actively seem like they were together. They needed to be seen in public or to suddenly disappear for hours as couples did... They needed to look like a couple.

    As they slid out of the car, Arielle moved to Gio's side. They were alone now but they wouldn't be for long. Palace workers would see them, anyone visiting the palace as well. This idea was something they needed to commit to full time. It was going to be a lot of work and a lot of tweaking. So, Arielle reached over and slid her hand into Gio's, though looking away from him as she did so. She didn't love this but it was the plan she needed to follow.

    Immediately as they walked out of the garage, the butler walked up to them both, bowing deeply before standing up and speaking. "The Kings and Queens would like to speak to you both at once. They are waiting in your father's study." The butler looked at Gio before bowing again and walking away once he was dismissed.

    A small glance down towards their hands was all the indication of holding hands that Gio gave. He just kept his gaze forward as they walked into the Palace. His gaze being kept even with the butler as the man came to him. An then, and only then did Gio offer, Arielle, a small squeeze of reassurance. A silent way of telling her to calm down and that everything is going to be alright.

    Leaning down to her ear level, Gio whispered."Just remember to breath." He told her before standing up straight and walking towards his fathers' study. "The news stations have probably been calling off the hook since we left the square," Gio said, then shrugged his shoulders. "No big deal." He said as he looked ahead, trying to stay as calm as he possibly could at the moment.

    "Remember, Princess." Gio started, then looked down at her. "You're head over heels for me." He finished his words with a wink before they turned the hall that housed his fathers' study. "We've come to see the Kings and Queens," Gio said in his commanding tone as he approached the guards.

    Remembering just in time, Gio let go of Arielle's hand and fixed his clothing. His father was a man who liked appearances to be on point at all times. Then, once he was sure he was good, the guards nodded for him and proceeded to knock on the door of the study and announcing their arrival.

    Taking in a deep breath, Gio glanced at Arielle and motioned for her to go into the room first, then he slowly walked in after her. "You requested our presence?" Gio asked as he stood up straight and looked between the two Kings eyes. Making sure that they knew that he was paying attention to them both. If it was just his parents that he'd be seeing, Gio would no way be this uptight, but, with the visiting nobles, Gio knew his father would want every impression to count.

    Once the door behind them both was closed behind them, King Richard took a step forward. He took a moment, glancing over Arielle as though he was searching for something. A look of concern was over his face but once he reached back to her eyes, he spoke. "The paparazzi have been calling the palace to ask for an official statement concerning the attack on the princess. The story seemed to only grow worse and worse with each call." King Richard looked to the vampire king, who nodded in agreement.

    The vampire king then took over from there. "First it was just an encounter and then it slowly turned into a full-on kidnapping story where Princess Arielle was supposedly almost drained and lost a finger." The man raised an eyebrow at the two of them. "Is there any truth to this story?"

    Arielle held onto Gio's hand a bit tighter. Her heart was beating faster at the thought of all of this. Especially if they see through her and Gio's sudden closeness. Though she knew it was okay for her to seem nervous and scared. After all, she was the one who had been attacked. So she gave them a small nod before speaking. "I was attacked by some feral but Gio stopped them before anything happened.

    A deep frown moved over the royalty's faces at her words. The air in the room seemed to shift. There had been concern but the Kings and Queens had been hoping it was the paparazzi lying in order to make a story. Queen Vivian moved forward, deep worry on her face as she started to look over her daughter as well, her eyes stopping for a moment at their hands before continuing on. "Are you okay?"

    The vampire King spoke, other worries hanging over his mind as, to him, it was clear that Arielle was indeed okay. "What happened exactly, Giovanni?"

    You got to love the paparazzi sometimes. The way that they can just make up any sort of story out of thin air is quite impressive. As is the ability to get people to believe that they were telling the truth without showing any sort of truth to the matter as well. It's a little sad that there is so many out there that would believe them without any sort of references to their sources.

    As attention was shifted towards Giovanni, Gio cleared his throat and lifted his hand that was being clenched in Arielle's hand. "Well, for a starter's she's not missing any fingers." He said, trying to be a smartass, but the look that his parents were giving him quickly diminished that little know it all smirk he was trying to hold onto and change it into a small frown.

    Shifting his gaze towards the young Princess, Gio stood still for a moment before looking towards the higher royals. "We were out in the town, I was showing the Princess around. She got excited about something and moved in front of me for a few moments." Gio started, looking at Ari, a look of well-rehearsed fake worry crossing his features before he looked towards the kings and queens. "That was when I noticed something off, I sensed them before anything and grabbed onto the Princess and pulled her back just as a feral was about to grab her." He cast another look towards the Princess, gave her hand another squeeze as he continued to speak. "Did you want to step out as I continue to explain?" Gio asked, his voice sounding quite soft, which caused a small look of surprise to appear on his parents faces before his mother's changed to a content one.

    Once Arielle answered his question, an rather or not she agreed to leave, Gio looked back towards their parents. "The feral and what I could only assume were part of its makeshift coven stepped forward, so I pushed the Princess behind me, an being the Royal Prince, I used my knight training to land a few hits without getting hurt. The fight thankfully didn't last long since the ferals were quite weak, they managed to only take a hit or two before they fled and left us to head back to the safety of the car."

    As the Prince finished his story, Gio let out a small sigh before he turned towards the human King and Queen. "My deepest apologies for causing your daughter so much stress. It was not my intention to get her into harm's way. Please forgive me." He said as he got down onto one knee and lowered his head towards them. Giving them the ultimate sign of respect. "I give you my word that I will not let Princess Arielle come into harms way again. As Royal Heir to the throne and Knight to my Kingdom, I swear it."

    As he asked if she wanted to step out, Arielle gave him a soft "No" before he continued on. Part of her had wanted to leave for a moment so she could take a breath from lying to their parents. Though she knew it was better to stay and listen to the story that Gio would eventually tell. Arielle wanted to ensure that she was on the same page with him about what happened. But as he spoke, Arielle ensured to give off the correct vibe. Her head turned to the side, as though she was displeased from hearing this story. A deep frown on her face, even squeezing Gio's hand as though she was looking for his reassurance.

    Though when his hand slid from hers, Arielle turned her head back and her eyes landed on him. She gracefully folded her hands in front of herself as she listened to his words. But the moment Gio went down on one knee in front of her parents, Arielle's face turned bright pink from embarrassment. It was the last thing she would have expected him to do but there he was, swearing an oath to her parents. Arielle brought a hand up to her face, trying to cover the blush that was coming over it slightly without being too obvious about it.

    The vampire King and Queen looked between the two for a few moments, as though they were trying to piece together a puzzle. The King was fixated on Princess Arielle and her actions as Gio spoke. King Richard and Queen Vivian's attention was fully on Giovanni as he went down onto his knee. They listened closely and a smile moved over Queen Vivian's face. Though King Richard seemed pleased, he spoke in a sternish tone. "We will keep you to that oath, Prince Giovanni."

    Queen Vivian waved her husbands words away before stepping forward towards her daughter. "Thank you for protecting her, Prince Giovanni. It sounds like the two of you have had a stressful trip into town." The woman placed her hand on Arielle's head and lightly ran her fingers through her hair. "The both of you should go rest."

    As soon as the word rest came up, Giovanni stood up from his kneel and fixed his clothing. Making sure that he was always presentable, even if he was just heading back towards his sleeping chambers for the night. Or waking up, he needed to always be presentable.

    Turning towards the Princess for a moment, Gio looked at the terrified human for a moment more before looking to his parents and her father. "I think her Majesty is correct, we've been through a lot. The Princess more so than me. I'll take her to her room." Gio said and then bowed once more towards the royals before he made his way to where he had originally been standing.

    "Princess," Gio said quietly and offered her his hand as he motioned for her to start walking towards the door so that they could leave. Once they'd start heading towards the door, Gio would move his hand from hers and rest it on the girl's waist and pull her towards him. A sure sign of affection as he led them out of the room and away from their parent's eyes.

    Then, once the coast was clear, he moved to hold her hand once more and started to make a quick walk towards the Princess' room. "That was stressful," Gio mumbled quietly once they were a few halls away from the Kings and Queens. "What did you think of the story? Think they bought it? Should I have added that you almost fainted or something?" Gio asked, a small chuckle escaping past his lips as he looked straight once more.

    Arielle let out a sigh and shook her head at the prince. "No, if you had told them that I fainted, they would have been more worried than anything else." She whispered back to him, holding onto his hand a bit tighter as she tried to keep up with Gio's stride. He was walking rather quickly and the princess was a bit shorter than him as it was. "I believe that my parents bought it. Both of them seemed pleased but I am sure they'll say something tomorrow before they leave. So I will know then."

    "I can't tell what yours were thinking at all though. Your father was looking at me while you were making your oath and your mother didn't say a word. So I don't know what to make of it." The princess murmured nervously. "Do you think they believe you at all?"

    The princess wasn't quite sure what to make of any of it. In the least, they had the paparazzi on their side with all of the calls that were made to the castle. Though who knew if the Kings and Queens believed what they said had occurred out there. Even more than that, who knew if they believed that she and Prince Giovanni were getting closer. The prince making an oath was bold, but it could have backfired on them. Just thinking about it caused her embarrassment to creep back up again.

    "I can't believe that you made that oath to them," Arielle mumbled to him. "It would have been so easy for them all to see right through it."

    Listening to Princess Arielle, Gip slowly nodded his head. He took everything in and thought over her words for a moment before he slowly decided on what to say. "Not, completely." Gio's words were slow, but they were to the point. His father was probably not completely convinced. The two spent a lot of time together, so Gio learned a lot of his tricks to get out of trouble from the old man. The king was always on high alert for any sort of danger that could potentially ruin the royal family's reputation.

    "We'll just have to make sure that we're acting close or like we're getting closer when we're around him. He's very skeptical about this whole marriage thing, as it was my mothers' idea for us to wed and not him." Gio said as he slowed his pace as he noticed Arielle's struggle to keep up with him.

    Then, Gio slowly let go of Arielle's hand altogether and just allowed for his arms to hang by his side. "Sometimes the easiest way to get out of trouble is to throw one's self under the bus," Gio mumbled quietly, thinking back to when he'd made the oath to her parents. "You think your parents bought the oath and story?" Gio asked as he stopped walking outside of her room. He moved to lean against the wall facing her door. His arms crossing over his chest.

    "You know, you'll need to act like a love-struck puppy when you're around me now, right?" Gio teased, offering a small wink to tease Arielle. "Hang on my arm and give me your cutest puppy dog eyes when I cast you a glance." Gio winked, then allowed for a small chuckle to escape from his lips. "Chill Ari, I was teasing." He told her to make sure that she wasn't going to go off at him.

    "I can't say that they completely bought it. I think they believed the story that you told, considering the calls the paparazzi were making. Though it's hard to say how much they really bought the oath that you made. In the least, I am sure that they are pleased that you did so, even if they think you didn't fully mean it." Arielle gave him a small shrug. "It's like they'll appreciate that you know what they want to hear, in the least. But, as I said, I will find out tomorrow. I am sure they'll have a few things to say about today before they leave to go back home."

    Arielle let out a small sigh before running her fingers through her hair. "Besides, it is not really my parents that we need to worry about. Even if they have suspicions, they won't be able to confirm or deny anything until we go to my country. And, hopefully, by then, we'll have perfected the lovesick couple act. It's your family we need to keep a close eye on now."

    At his teasing, Arielle shook her head, her eyes even giving him a hard roll. She then took a step forward and grabbed ahold of his jacket. Arielle tugged on it lightly, as if to bring him closer. While she looked up at him with big loving eyes, her whole demeanor changed into a lovesick girl, but there was heavy sarcasm shining through her words. "Oh, of course, my sweetie-pie. I'll just melt every time you so much as come near. And you'll act as the perfect protective boyfriend. You'll find it impossible to leave my side and when you're near, you'll hang on my every word. And, of course, we'll have so much fun with our dreadfully long goodbyes and arguing who will miss the other more. Won't it be fun, love muffin?"

    Reaching up, Arielle booped his nose before completely letting go of Gio. "Aww, no I'll miss you more." She said lovingly as she unlocked the door to her room, a bit of a smirk on her lips as the love-filled eyes disappeared.

    An inward groan escaped from Gio as every word that left Arielle's lips caused him to want to pull his hair out. Her tone was another additive to the annoyingly fake display of affection that she was teasing him back with. "I get it, Ari. Stop." Gio murmured as he watched the girl through half-lidded eyes. His head shook from side to side ever so slightly. He wasn't amused, so he wasn't going to push her back either.

    "Just get some rest," Giovanni told Arielle as he turned towards the side and started to make his way towards the vampire royals living quarters. "Don't let the bed bugs bite," Giovanni said in a sultry voice as he glanced at her over his shoulder, letting one of his fangs flash slightly in the light of the hallway. Then, he turned the corner and was out of her sight, making his way towards his room so that he could call upon a feeder to help him ease the itching he was feeling in his gums.

    All of this drama that had gone on in the past three hours or so had tired the vampire price. Ari had become squirmish at the mere mention of feeders or their storage room, so he didn't dare mention that was what he was going to get when he was done dealing with their parents. Tomorrow would be a new day for the both of them, tomorrow, the real test will begin. Will the two of them be able to get through with his fake arrangement that they had created for each other? OR, will the press find out the truth between the two of them?

    Once morning came, Arielle laid her head against the wall as she glanced over at the door to her room. She knew what she had to do that morning, or what she should do. Though, the truth was she didn't really want to do it. But it really was her last opportunity, her last chance to give her parents any kind of proof that maybe things were going the way they wanted. It was just the unfortunate situation of what they wanted was the opposite of what she wanted. Arielle would be happier being thousands of miles away from here...

    After another small sigh left her chest, she pushed herself off of the wall before making her way out. As she stepped into the hallway, Arielle brought a soft smile onto her face and folded her hands together. The princess forced her face to soften as she continued forward in a rather excited manner. Once she was at the door to Gio's bedroom, Arielle knocked twice before stepping back and waiting to see if he would open the door.

    Overall, Arielle knew her idea was a good one but she was curious as to how Giovanni would react to it. She wanted to ask him to join her for breakfast. Almost as though she actually wanted to be with him. Even if he said no, for whatever reason, at least some of the servants saw her head to his room. At least they would be whispering about that, and maybe it would get to even more people they wanted to convince.

    Arielle had even put more effort into her appearance than normal. Of course, she knew she always looked rather amazing but today Arielle wanted to look like she was actually trying to impress Giovanni. She knew that some people would notice but who knew if Gio would. In the least, her parents would and that was all that really mattered right now. She just wanted to ask him to breakfast so her parents would see/hear about it before they left that day.

    Hearing knocking on his door this early in the morning caused a small groan to escape from Gio. He had just stepped out of the shower after his workout and barely had any time to dry off. His servants all knew not to disturb him before nine in the morning. As that was when he was usually showered and dressed for the morning. Most days.

    Still, a little wet from his shower, Gio's shirt hung to his body and his jeans felt a little tight. "Yeah?" Gio asked as he opened the door, just as a few drops of water from his hair started to drip down the sides of his forehead to make him look like he was sweating. The instant his eyes landed on Arielle a small smirk played across his lips and Gio moved to lean against the side of his door frame.

    "To what do I owe you the pleasure of seeing you so early this morning?" Prince Giovanni asked as he slowly crossed his arms over his chest and offered the girl a small smile. A few servants walked by, giving them a look of amazement since Gio would usually yell at anyone who'd disturb his morning routine of workout, shower and then reading before breakfast. So him greeting Arielle and not going off on her was a surprise to the servants.

    "Isn't it a little early to be visiting your lover?" Gio asked, his voice quiet as he gave the young Princess a curious look. It was then that he noticed the outfit that the young girl was wearing. His eyes not hiding it as they roamed her figure. "You're looking quite nice today." That was the first non-teasing thing that escaped from his lips as he looked the young girl in the eyes. "What are you dressed up for? " He asked her, wondering if he forgot about an event that was going on today or something.

    As the door opened to Giovanni's room, Arielle took a moment to look over the man. She blinked twice before a warm smile came over her face. Arielle had not been expecting a wet Giovanni to open the door. It seemed she had interrupted him while he was still getting ready. Oh well. The man would get over it and she could remember to start coming a bit later in the morning unless she purposely wanted to annoy him that day. Which could always be a bit fun if Gio decided to be his arrogant self. "I didn't mean to come particularly early."

    Arielle let out a small hum in response to his second question. "Not if you wanted to ask your lover to join you for breakfast." She said softly, not wanting the others to hear this particular part of the conversation. They shouldn't be seen as lovers quite yet. Now that wouldn't be believable. Besides, she didn't want them to start whispering about how easy the human princess was. Though she moved back to her sweet voice, keeping it at a normal speaking volume as she continued. "I was hoping you would join me for breakfast this morning. I know it's a bit early but I am going to see my parents to the airport soon after. Though I understand if you are still getting ready."

    The princess took a moment to glance down at her outfit before shyly glancing to the side. The smile on her face widened as she brought a hand to her cheek. She even took a moment to glance over at the servants. Oh, she hoped that they were eating this up. Even if they weren't, at least she learned something new about Giovanni. He was particularly observant and she was rather impressed. "Thank you, and for no particular reason. I just wanted to look particularly nice today, is all."

    Her glance turned back to Gio. A little smirk coming over her lips before she leaned in a bit and her voice lowered down to a whisper again. "I wish I could say the same thing about you." Arielle teased as she glanced up at his wet hair. She let out a light laugh before shaking her head a bit. "Sorry about catching you while you're getting ready."

    A hum of understanding escaped from Gio as he listened to Arielle. He remembered hearing about how her parents were going to be leaving soon. A ruler couldn't leave their country for too long for fear of there being a coup or fear of one of the advisors doing something stupid in their stead. "Didn't think they'd be leaving so soon." Geo mused, more so to himself. Gio would have thought that they'd be staying at least weak since their daughters going to be engaged and all, but again. He couldn't blame them.

    The actions of the Princess amused Giovanni as he silently watched and listened to her. She was a good actress, so he made a mental note to watch her closely to make sure that she didn't try and fool him into thinking something or feeling a special way.

    Then, a small snort escaped from Gio and he made a show of ruffling his hair. Making sure to throw some of the water drops from his hair towards Arielle. "Yeah well, I'm not used to having visitors so early," Gio told her as he did his best to offer her a small smile. "It's alright, just, give me ten minutes and I'll join you for breakfast," Gio told her as he stood up straight and closed his bedroom door. Normally, Gio would offer a girl to wait for him inside his room, but since Arielle was a Princess there were certain things he needed to remember. She wasn't a normal girl, she wasn't one of his sluts, and she had a fierce side to her that could rival his own personality.

    Moving around quickly, Gio decided he wanted to change his slightly damp clothing for something that was dry and presentable. Then, he went to his bedroom and made his hair look like it was styled decently by adding in some styling gel into it. Then, once he thought that he looked alright, Gio went to the door and opened it. "Do I look better now?" He asked as he glanced down at Ari before he motioned for her to head towards the dining room. His hand moving to rest on her lower back as they moved about.

    Arielle let out a small hum in response to Giovanni's words. "They wanted to stay longer but it is not an option at the moment." The princess said, knowing that she didn't have to explain the rest of it. As a prince, he could probably figure out why they couldn't stay longer. Besides, the real reason wasn't any of his business anyway. Not yet at least. As he said that he would go get ready, Arielle gave him a small nod before taking a few steps away from the door and relaxed. Though once Giovanni came back out she turned back to him with a light smile.

    "Much better," Arielle assured Giovanni. She did find it rather amusing that she had interrupted his morning routine. Though that was just because she found the prince annoying at times. Still, Arielle would try not to make a habit of it. "What time are you usually ready in the morning?" She asked, looking up to him as he led her towards the dining room. Arielle did not think she would often come to his room to ask him to breakfast but since they needed to look like a couple, the princess was sure that there were some mornings that she would need to stop by.

    Once they were in the dining room, Arielle moved into a seat across from Giovanni. Her hands folded into her lap as she waited for their food to be prepared and brought out. She smiled at him softly for a moment as she tried to think about what they should talk about. It was hard to say. Arielle wasn't sure that they necessarily had a lot in common. Except for their titles in their countries, she was rather sure that they were very different people.

    "Do you have a strict schedule here?" Arielle asked after a moment as she looked to Giovanni. While they were here, Arielle knew that she was going to have to be the one who was more flexible. She didn't have any responsibilities except getting to know Giovanni. Though that would change when they went to her country for a while.

    As they walked to the dining room, Giovanni was satisfied that they were just walking in silence. It was comfortable, not that sort of feeling where one feels suffocated or awkward. So, when Arielle spoke to him, his only reply for her at first was a hum because he wasn't expecting to have to talk during their little walk to get themselves something for breakfast. "I'm usually ready for the day around nine-thirty, nine forty-five if I've had a late start," Gio explained, shrugging his shoulders in response.

    Evering the dining hall, Gio followed Arielle towards the table and sat across from her. His hand instantly reaching out to grab his glass of orange juice that was waiting for him. As the young Prince took a few sips from his drink, he glanced towards Ari as she spoke to him once more. Amusement flashing through his eyes as he listened to her questions.

    "Well, I'm not of school-age anymore, so I don't have any lessons that I have to take if that's what you're asking about." Giovanni started as he lowered his glass of orange juice and set it back onto the table with a quiet tap. "Although, I am tasked with managing our western front. Taxes in that region, shipments that go in and out, and overall making sure that my people are safe. If that's what you're asking about, I'm usually not to busy because I prefer to focus on that at night. Us vampires don't require as much sleep as you humans do." He said casually, a small shrug of his shoulders the following suit.

    Finally, the cooks started to bring out the breakfast foods for the royals. The room starting to smell of fresh bacon, hashbrowns, eggs and so much more. It was like a buffet. "Speaking of the west, I was thinking we could head out that way. We have a beautiful art museum that I think you'd like."

    Arielle let out a small hum in response before giving Gio a small shrug. "I just thought that it would be best to know your schedule, considering." She told him quietly. "And I won't be particularly busy when I am here, considering my parents decided to release me from my responsibilities until I go back." In truth, Arielle was unsure if she preferred it that way or not. On one hand, it would be nice to take a break for a while but on the other, she knew her parents only did that so she would have more free time with Gio.

    Her eyes lifted up and a little smirk came over Arielle's lips. "Not that I plan on taking up all of your free time." She hoped that despite their little arrangement, that both of them would have free time to do what they wanted. And she hoped that she would be able to do much of what she enjoyed while being in his country. Though she had a feeling that she was not going to be able to head into the city without Giovanni escorting her.... unfortunate but Arielle preferred to be safe than sorry. Besides, Arielle was curious as to what Gio would do in his free time. She had seen the tabloids and she wanted to know how much was true.

    Once the food came out, Arielle started to fill up her plate. After everything that had occurred yesterday, she was rather hungry. Plus, Arielle wasn't quite sure when she would get back from the airport. Her family had their own private plane, of course, but it was hard to say that they would take off right away. There was always the change that her parents wanted to talk before they left. And who knew how long that would take.

    As Gio spoke of heading to the west, Arielle glanced back up at him. A soft smile came over her lips and she gave him a little nod. "Yes, I think that sounds like a lovely idea."
