    Orlando was happy with the evening. It had been a successful first date and he hoped to be the first of many. It was unique, fun, exhilarating, and the girl seemed to be all over him by the end of it. His first dates were not usually like this and it was refreshing. Rosemary was refreshing and he couldn’t pin point exactly why, but if she likes him he didn’t plan on letting her go anytime soon. He needed a relaxing and refreshing piece in his life. His father walkways said he’d go crazy or be killed if he didn’t have something to ground him outside of the gang

    Orlando could hear his heart in his chest beating loud and proud. He swallowed as he thought about his next move. A large smile spreading across his face as she explained that she felt the same way. He leaned across the seat and used his free hand to caress her cheek. “Can I kiss you, Rosemary?” He asked. Orlando was no creep, he knew consent was important. Especially with him being such a big scary dude sometimes.

    When Orlando started to move in the car, Rosemary's eyes were stuck to him. She watched as he leaned over and his hand moved along her cheek. Little tingles ran along her skin at the feeling and her heart started to beat faster. Rosemary really did like Orlando a lot. And she reall liked the way he treated her. Despite being the big, scary guy he described and looked a bit. He was actually a sweatheart.

    "Yes, you may," Rosemary whispered to him, her eyes looking into his. Instead of waiting for Orlando to lean in, Rosemary did so, pressing her soft lips against his. She stayed against him for a moment, her lips opening up slightly as her head leaned into his hand. But then she slowly pulled away, but still her face was only a few inches away from his. She bit down onto her bottom lip lightly as she looked up at him.

    Orlando smiled when she gave him permission. His smile grew as she took the initiative to kiss him. His lips meshed with hers easily. A light pink blush was on his lips as she pulled away. He opened his eyes and grinned at her. Her lips felt like alcohol, addicting. He kissed her again, bringing his other hand up so he was cupping her face. Orlando finished after a moment and pulled away.

    He leaned back into this seat and let out a sigh of relief. His eyes still closed he laughed lightly. “You can call me crazy. But did that feel as wonderful for you as it did me?” He asked. Orlando turned to Rosemary as he opened his eyes and smiled. “Because like. That was amazing.” He admitted and the blush returned.

    Orlando decided to begin driving, noting that people were about to hurry out as the fair ended. He didn’t want to end up stuck in traffic. “So what do you wanna do?” He asked and looked over while they were stopped at a red light. “I don’t want this date to end.” He told her.

    A huge smile was on Rosemary's face as Orlando pulled away from their kiss. And she let out a little giggle as he mentioned how amazing it had been. Though he certainly wasn't wrong. Normally, first kisses were awkward but this one wasn't.

    "I guess I am just an amazing kisser then." She joked warmly. "But you are right, I felt it too." Rosemary whispered to him.

    As Orlando started to drive, her eyes shifted down to look at her hands. Now she was beginning to feel a bit nervous and that was clear with how her fingers were twisting and untwisting together. "I don't want it to end either." She admitted. In truth, she did have an idea of what they could go do but Rosemary didn't want Orlando to get the wrong idea. "I think most things are closed right now."

    She lightly pressed her palms against her thighs before deciding to just got for it. Hopefully he would realize that she was not inviting him to have sex with her. "We can go to one of our places? Maybe...watch a movie or talk or something?"

    Orlando rolled his eyes and laughed with her. “I mean, yes you are a good kisser but I think that feeling was a bit more than just that.” He was happy when she said that she felt it too. Maybe he and Rosemary had chemistry. It certainly felt that way at the moment.

    His eyes occasionally looked over at Rosemary and he noticed her nerves. He reached out and took one of her hands in his, giving it a reassuring squeeze. He wasn’t sure if he should say anything, but he wanted Rosemary to know that he was here and it was okay.

    “I’d like that.” He said and gave her a gentle smile. He knew why she was nervous now. He knew she didn’t want to make him think she was ‘asking for it.’ Once again he gave her hand a squeeze. “Just me you and some stupid funny comedy.” He said. “My place or yours?” He wanted to make sure Rosemary felt as comfortable as she could and that involved letting her choose the location.

    As Orlando took her hand into his and squeezed it, Rosemary started to calm down. She lightly squeezed his hand back as she untensed and relaxed into the seat again. There were still some nerves in her but Rosemary felt more hopeful than not. After all, Orlando had been nothing but a gentleman. Hell, he even asked to kiss her and a lot of guys wouldn't do that.

    The smile along Rosemary's face returned as Orlando mentioned putting in a comedy movie. "That sounds perfect." Rosemary told him before letting out a small hum as he asked her who's place. Well she certainly wasn't ready to have him at her place. Plus her interest was piping about his place.

    "Let's go to yours," Rosemary decided. Her eyes shifted down to their hands and she slowly started to rub her thumb along the back of his hand.

    Orlando grinned. “Awesome.” He murmured. “You feeling like Adam Sandler comedy or Chris Rock comedy?” He asked as he drove. Orlando was relaxed now. They had a plan and she was seeming to relax as well. He was happy. He didn’t want it give Rosemary any reason to be suspicious of him or his intentions. He didn’t want to explain his not so secret life to her just yet.

    Orlando pulled up to his house. It was navy blue home, two stories, with black trim. He even had a small front porch. “Alrighty here we are. Chez Burton.” He said and got out, Orlando headed up tot he door and looked for his keys before going inside. As soon as he and Rosemary were inside, the sound of nails clicking on the wood floor was heard. “Here comes Hades.” He warned.

    Orlando knelt down and let hades run up and give him love. “Down boy down.” He motioned for Rosemary to kneel. “Hades this is Rosemary, Rosemary this is Hades.” He said and introduced them. Hades began to sniff her excitedly, jumping up and licking her face. “Wow he likes you. That’s a good sign.” He purred. “I can’t date a woman who he doesn’t like. He’s my wingman.” He told her with a laugh.

    "Adam Sandler would be good," Rosemary told him. She actually did not know who Chris Rock was. While she probably had seen a movie or two from him, Rosemary could not say that she was all that familiar with most actors. Though it seemed easier to just not say so.

    When they arrived to the house, Rosemary slid out of the car and looked up at it. Once again, she could not help but be surprised. After all, many people their age didn't own one and his seemed pretty nice. She followed him up to the door, her head tilting a bit. "Chez Burton?" Rosemary asked, unsure of what that meant.

    Walking inside, she heard nails clicking along the floor and for a moment, confusion moved through her until she saw the dog running towards them. Rosemary stood a bit behind Orlando as Hades came running. Though when he motioned from her to kneel down, she did so. In an attempt not to scare the dog, she kept still as he sniffed her. Though the moment Hades jumped up and started to lick her face, Rosemary was giggling and moving her hands to pet him. "He's even cuter in person!"

    After a few moments, Rosemary got Hades to calm down enough so that he was no longer licking her face. Though she continued to pet the lovable pup. "I'll try to stay on Hades' good side then,"

    Orlando grinned and nodded. “Awesome.” He told her. He liked comedy, it let things be relaxing. “French for house. Basically like House of Burton. My house.” He explained and shrugged. He didn’t want to come off as arrogant or anything so he left it at that.

    He laughed slightly as hades was showing some love to Rosemary. “Alright boy, down.” He said and the dog quickly laid down. “Let’s go to the living room.” He said. “Hades, go lay in your bed.” He said and the dog ran off into the living room.

    Olranso lead Rosemary to the living room and sat on the couch. He grabbed the remote and opened Netflix as he began to look for an Adam Sandler movie. “So, Rosemary.” He said and grinned, draping his arm across the back of the couch as he chose a movie. “What’s a girl like you doing trusting a big scary guy like me?” He teased with a grin.

    Rosemary's eyes followed Hades as he ran off to go lay in his bed. It was rather impressive as most people did not train their dogs to that degree. Though she wouldn't have minded if Hades spent some time with them. He was a super friendly pup. But she was here to spend time with Orlando and not Hades.

    Once Orlando sat down, Rosemary sat down next to him, but kept some space in between them. She leaned back, relaxing as she watched him click through the movies to find the right one. Though his next words caused Rosemary to glance around the room for a moment before looking up at the 'big scary guy'. "Oh is this the part where you are going to kidnap me?" Rosemary teased back.

    "All this time, I thought you were going to protect me from being snatched up, not actually kidnap me yourself!" The young woman let out a jokingly dramatic sigh. "I suppose I can try to run away but I don't know how fast you are." She let out a hum. "Maybe I'll have to sneak out of the bathroom window then."

    Orlando grinned as Rosemary teased back. He loved it. He knew she wouldn’t be someone to take anyone’s shit and he loved that. “Oh sweetheart, I’ve already kidnapped you. You’re in my house aren’t you?” He countered and playfully grabbed her shoulder. “You think you’re good enough to sneak away from the great Orlando Burton? Brave girl.” He continues to tease. It helped him relax.

    Orlando leaned back into the couch and tuned into the movie. He didn’t want to push Rosemary anymore than he felt he had. He felt like he was teasing a lot and decided to cool down during the movie. He laughed and chuckled at different parts, occasionally glancing over to make sure Rosemary was enjoying it.

    When the movie finished Orlando stood and stretched, yawning. “I can’t believe it’s already 11.” He said as he checked his watch. “I should probably get you home. Don’t need anyone worrying about you actually being kidnapped.” He said and grinned at her. “We could take my pickup and hades if you wanted.” He offers as he held his hand out for Rosemary to use to help her stand.

    During the movie, Rosemary felt herself sinking into the couch. She was enjoying it thoroughly and laughing at the jokes. However, she was growing tired. Although it wasn't that late... though she supposed that it had been a busy night. And it was nice that she felt comfortable enough around Orlando that she did not need to be on guard.

    By the time that the movie finished, Rosemary had her legs curled up behind her and her head laid down on the cushion. Her eyes shifted up when Orlando mentioned taking her home. Part of her didn't want to move. Just wanted to sleep where she was. But, Orlando was right. And heading home was definitely a better idea than spending the night at his place. "I would appreciate that. I don't want to actually get kidnapped."

    With that, Rosemary got onto her feet and grabbed her bag as well as the stuffed animal that they won. She rubbed her face a little before stretching out. The bottom of her shirt raised up a bit as she did so. "The pickup and Hades sounds nice." She murmured as she took his hand, wrapping her fingers together with him as she started to follow Orlando out of the house.

    Orlando laughed softly. “I would never. Like you said I’m a teddy bear, so I couldn’t hurt a beautiful girl like you.” Orlando moved into the hall by the door to get his shoes and keys. “Come on Hades.” He called. Orlando grinned when Rosemary took his hand.

    He led her out to his clay blue pickup truck and opened the door for her, then the back door for Hades, who easily jumped up and into the backseat. Orlando shut both doors before he made his way around and got in the drivers seat. He headed off towards Rosemary’s apartment.

    “I had a really good time with you tonight.” He told her and smiled tiredly over at Rosemary. Orlando tapped his fingers on the wheel as he pulled up in front of her place. “I know it might seem early. But how about date number two?” He asked and nervously licked his lips. “Tomorrow is Saturday night so we could go out to the club, I’ve got one I go to fairly often and I’d love to be accompanied by the cutest girl in the city.” He purred as he leaned back in the seat and looked over at her.

    "You are a big teddy bear," Rosemary purred lightly to him. Once they got to the pickup, Orlando opened the door for her again and she slid in the car. As Hades jumped in, Rosemary glanced back and smiled at the dog, leaning back a little to pat him on the head before she sat properly in her seat again. Most of the drive was on the quiet side. Which was not too surprising since they were both pretty tired.

    Her eyes lifted up when they pulled up to her apartment. She looked over the building before her head turned back and she started to listen to what he was saying. A little smile started to come along her face as he asked her out on a second date before their first one was even over. "I would love that," Rosemary told him, "I don't know where you were thinking but my brother owns a club in town. The Chat Rouge. We could go there."

    Rosemary tucked a strand of hair behind her ear, her smile growing a bit. "Tomorrow works perfectly either way."

    Orlando wasn’t sure why he was so nervous to ask Rosemary out on a second date. They had both seemed interested in one another and unless she had plans there didn’t seem a reason to say no. But nonetheless he was nervous. When he saw the smile and heard her words he grinned. “Lucky me.” He purred.

    Orlando rubbed the back of his neck when she mentioned that her brother owned a nightclub. He knew that club well and the owner even better. They had worked together a few times. Orlando providing drug services and bouncer type services. “Not the one I was thinking.” He said and paused for a moment. “I’ve got a good report with the guys at The Five. That’s where I was thinking.” He said but quickly wiped the nervousness away. He didn’t plan on telling her why he didn’t want to, and couldn’t, go to the Chat Rouge. He was banned, business has gone south between he and the owner.

    Orlando nodded and grinned. “What time do you wanna head out? Seven?” He offered as he checked his phone to make sure he didn’t have anything conflicting with that. His front of an auto shop shouldn’t have conflicting appointments, but hey sometimes gang work was done on weird hours.

    "We can go there then," Rosemary responded to him. For a moment, she did think that his response about the Chat Rouge was a little odd... though it wasn't that odd. People did have their favorite clubs and apparently, Orlando knew some people at his place. As she thought about it, it really wasn't all that surprising that he wanted to bring her somewhere that he knew. Or, perhaps, Orlando wasn't ready to run into any of her family members.

    "Seven works for me. Did you want to uber?" Since they were going to a club, Rosemary assumed that they would be drinking. At least, she wanted to drink. Though she did not want to assume that he was going to drive. Plus neither club was in walking distance from their homes, at least she didn't think that The Five was... she wasn't really quite sure.

    A little yawn escaped Rosemary, reminding her how exhausted she was. So the woman leaned in and pressed a kiss against Orlando's cheek before she gathered her things. "We can figure out the logistics tomorrow. I am going to head to bed." She smiled at him warmly before she slid out of the car. But, before she closed the door, Rosemary turned back to him. "Thanks for taking me out, it was a lot of fun."

    Orlando grinned when she agreed, and didn’t push his reasoning for not wanting to go to the other club. He wasn’t Quite ready to destroy her innocent thinking of him. “Good idea.” He murmured. “I’ll text you in the morning and let you know.” He said.

    Orlando nodded with a smile. “I had a lot of fun too. Thanks for accompanying me.” He said. Orlando stayed parked until he was sure that Rosemary was in safe. When he saw the light go out he pulled away and drove back to his apartment with Hades.

    Next Day

    Orlando woke up early the next day. His father told him to get to the shop early. He showed up and went into their back office. One of their men had been picked up by the police department and was accused of becoming an informant. His father explained that part of being the big boss was doing interrogations of your own men and other gang’s members when needed. And getting information necessary. Orlando nodded and headed to the warehouse they owned, private building on private, remote property. He headed inside and there was a man tied to a chair, in front of a table. Two of Orlando’s men standing on each side. He made his way over and sat at the empty table across from the man. Laughing to himself he began the interrogation.

    A bit later Orlando had finished the interrogation, getting the necessary information out of the man and ensuring he wouldn’t be informing the police of anything. Orlando sighed as he looked down at his knuckles. They were a bit bruised and bloodied, and he hoped that Rosemary wouldn’t notice. He checked the time, 3 PM. He decided to text her. Hey, so I can uber to your place and then we can head to the club. Uber back when we’re done? He asked and smiled thinking of the date. Orlando drove back to the auto shop, heading into the bathroom he washed off his hands.

    Rosemary had decided to have a late lunch with her brother and she let it a bit irritated. Vincent had warned her about Orlando, telling her to stay away from him. However, her brother wouldn't say why. Which just frustrated Rosemary to her core. It made it seem that Vincent had no good reason to tell her to stay away from Orlando. And, to make matters worse, Rosemary knew that her brother was overprotective to begin with. He rarely approved of anyone that she dated. So his request of her could just be due to his own desire rather than an actual concern. Although part of Rosemary felt sure that her brother was just being annoying, as per usual, another part of her wanted to ask Orlando if he knew Vincent.

    As her phone went off, she was walking back into her apartment. Rosemary pulled out her phone and a little smile came over her lips when she saw a text for Orlando. He was so sweet. What possible reason did her brother have for wanting her to stay away from him? Even if he even had a real reason to begin with... Which she seriously doubted that he did. Rosemary messaged Orlando back. That sounds perfect. I'll see you at 7 :)

    Orlando grinned as she texted back. He was happy things seemed to be going well. See you soon He sent back. Orlando decided to shower and get ready early. That way he wouldn’t be late if anything came up for work.

    Orlando headed home. He sent a text to his father and a few guys that he would be out partying tonight. Those with higher up information always sent things out to hold each other accountable and in case anything happened. He went to shower, making sure to scrub every inch of himself. He was making sure she had no reason not to like him. When he got out he began to go through his clothes looking for something to wear. He settled on a white graphics tee, which had an eagle on the front. He wore black sweatpants with gold trim and a gold emblem on the pocket. Orlando ran gel through his hair and slicked it back, smirking at himself in the mirror.

    At 6:30 he got the Uber to her place, sending Rosemary a text to let her know he was on his way. When they arrived he asked the Uber driver to wait a moment while he went up to get her. Orlando grinned as he walked up to the door, knocking a couple times before waiting patiently.

    Once again, Rosemary made sure that she had enough time to get ready for the date. Especially since they were going out to the clubs, which meant that she needed to step up her game. After a long shower and skincare routine, the young woman moved onto doing her makeup and hair, even spritzing on perfume in a few choice spots on the chance Orlando could smell her when they were dancing. Though she then finally pulling on her dress and high heel shoes.

    When she heard a knock at the door, Rosemary had been checking her lipstick to ensure that it was perfect. Her eyes shifted over to the door as she stood up straight and glanced herself over. She was definitely ready for tonight. Rosemary opened up the door, and a huge smile came along her lips when she saw that it was Orlando that had been knocking. "Hey."

    Once she grabbed her clutch that was hanging besides the door, Rosemary walked out in the hallway besides Orlando and closed her apartment door behind her.
