Faith fell fast asleep in Bosco arms and he soothed her. He laid her back down and covered her with the blankets. He leaned over and kissed the top of her head.

"No one is going to hurt you Faith, I'm ready here I'm not going anywhere" He whispered. Dr. Pikes walked in to check on Faith and saw Bosco sitting beside her holding her Faith.

"Mr. Boscorelli?" he whispered not wanting to wake Faith. Bosco quietly without any movement walked over to the doctor.

"Hey Doc what's the word"

"Well it's good. She can go home today. I don't see any reason why I have to keep her. She can go at 12."

Bosco sighed with relief. 'That's good news doc.I'll tell her when she wakes up.

'I'll start on the paperwork" He patted Bosco on the shoulder and left the room. Bosco went back to Faith and sat down. He stared at her as she slept. How could Fred hurt something so beautiful, so caring? He would do anything to keep Faith safe. He started to shut his eyes and fall fast asleep. Faith opened her eyes and turned her head to Bosco.

"Hey you" he smiled

"Hi, Bosco you've been here all night?"

"I never left your side. I told you I would stay. You had a nightmare do you remember that?"

"Yes, it was awful Fred came here and threatened to take me away and told me he took care of you. That you weren't coming to get me this time"

Bosco shook his head.

"Won't happen. He has to get by me first. He smiled.

" Hello? Are you ready for visitors?" Faith looked up and was happy to see Mary, Jim, and the kids.

"Mommy!"

"Hey Baby" Faith sat up and pulled her son up so he was sitting with her on the bed.."HI Em"

"Hi Mom" She leaned over and gave her mother a kiss.

"You look so much better honey" Mary moved closer to Faith and gave her a kiss on her cheek.

"I'm sorry Faith"

"For what Jim?"

"I should have known that day when I saw the bruises on your face. I'm sorry he did this to you."

"Don't be Jim. It's not your fault. I'm going to be okay"

Bosco stood up. "And the good news is you are outta here at 12!"

"I am? How do you know?"

"I didn't get a chance to tell you. While you were sleeping before the doctor came in and said you were doing well and he doesn't see the need to keep you another night."

"That's great. Really great. Mary, Jim I want you to meet someone. This is Bosco. Bosco is a good friend of mine. He is also my partner at the Academy."

"It's nice to meet you both" Bosco extended his hand out and shook both of there hands.

"Bosco this is Mary and Jim they are Fred's parents"

"It's nice to meet you Bosco"

"So you're all better mommy?"

"Yes baby and soon we will go home and celebrate and make that dinner you like"

"Macoroni with sauce with cheese on top?"

"You betcha" She hugged Charlie. She was happy that her son and daughter were safe.

"Where's daddy mommy?" Faith looked at Jim and Mary.

"Well he went away for a while."

"When is he coming back?"

"I don't know not for a while, but we can still have the dinner without him"

"Yeah and Charlie you can help me make those chocolate chip brownies you like"

"We are having brownies too mommy?"

Faith nodded she looked over and smiled at Bosco. Osco nodded back with a smile.

"Hey Faith, I'm going to get going I'll call you later okay?"

"Oh you don't have to go"

"It's fine. You have family visiting and I have a few things to do."

"You can stay I want you here Bosco"

"I know you do. Just promise me you'll keep the chain lock on your door and you will get some rest."

"I'll make you a deal. You come over tonight and let me cook for you and I will get some sleep"

"And keep the chain lock on Faith?"

She nodded "And chain lock"

"Okay you have a deal what time should I be over?"

"Come by around 4:30. You can help me make the brownies with Charlie"

"Sure. I'll see ya then"

She watched as Bosco walked out the door and just smiled. After a few hours passed she got her release papers and signed out. She was also told she could resume her duties at the Academy in 2 days. She was so happy to finally be out of the hospital and back at home where she belonged.

4:30pm

There was a knock on the door and she just knew it was Bosco. She looked through the peep hole and saw it was him. She undid the lock and chain on the door and let him in. Bosco had on dark blue jeans and a white T-shirt on. Bosco handed Faith a bouquet of flowers

"Here these are for you Faith"

"Bosco! There beautiful. Thank you" She took them from him and put them in a vase.

"and I that's not the only thing I got present for everyone..Emily, Charlie come here.

He handed each one of them a gift.

Charlie opened his and his face lit up.."WOW a portable Playstation thanks uncle B"

"That'll keep him busy for hours" Faith said.

"Can I go play it mommy can I?"

"Sure"

Emily opened her's and saw it was a CD walkman…"Thanks Bosco"

"Your welcome."

Charlie and Emily went to their room and shut the door.

"How you feeling Faith?"

"I'm okay thanks."

"What smells so good?"

"It's my famous sauce and macaroni ."

"Smells delicious"

"You wanna drink or something?"

"No I'm good thanks"

"Okay, well do you want to watch TV?"

"Okay"

Bosco and Faith sat on the couch. She turned on the television and started flipping through the station.

"I have all these stations and nothing is ever on"

She started flicking really fast when Bosco saw something that caught his eye and Faith stopped on the WE Channel.

"Whoaa Whoa go back that was a Lakers game?"

"So?"

"So it's the most important game of the season"

"No sports.. Let's Watch this"

"Lifetime for women? I don't think so. Give me the remote"

"No" She smirked

"Faith come on please."

"No"

"You don't want to see me beg do you?"

"I'd love to see that"

"You would. Do I have to fight you for it?"

"You're getting the remote Bosco" Faith took the remote with her and got off the couch. Bosco followed her.

"Come on give it me" Faith smiled "Is this what you want she started to flip back and forth from the Lakers game and the WE channel"

"that's not funny Faith..Come let me see the remote"

"See it or have it?"she teased.

"That's it" He chased her around the couch. Hoping to get the remote from her hands she tripped over one of Charlie's toys and fell on the couch with Bosco landing on top of her. She was giggling and and laughing

"You okay Faith"

"Yeah I tripped over one of the toys"

He got closer to her face and whispered " Can I please have the remote?"

"Ummm let me think no"

"Hmmm I wonder if you're ticklish"

"Bosco don't"

"Yeah I think you are" ..He started tickling the life out of her he loved to watch her laugh and smile.

"I give I give okay here you big baby" She threw the remote at him.

"Thank you Faith"

Faith fixed herself and went to the kitchen to get the rest of the dinner ready. By 5:00 it was ready. Everyone sat down and ate. For once Faith had a normal dinner. Her dinners insisted of Fred Yelling and screaming. It was nice for a change. Emily and Charlie fell asleep on the couch afterwards. She put her kids to bed and closed there bedroom door.

"there out like a light." Faith said as she hurried over to the couch where Bosco was sitting.

"Well they had a big day Faith. There mother came home" He smiled back at her.

"Thank you for dinner and dessert it was wonderful" Bosco stood up and put his leather jacket on " I should go it's getting late"

"Yeah I can't believe its 12 already. Time flys. You can stay longer if you want"

"You need your rest Faith. It's been a long day"

Faith got off the couch and walked him to the door.

"Thank you Bosco for everything. You've done so much for me"

"I would do it again. I care about you Faith"

She moved closer to him " I care allot about you to Bosco"

"I will always keep you safe you know that"

"I do Bosco I do" He reached up and pulled the blond strand that was in her eyes "You're so beautiful" She smiled back at him and pulled him into a hug. "Thank you Bosco I don't know what I'd do without you you mean so much to me"

Bosco smiled back. They were inches apart from one another "Well goodnight" He said

Faith moved closer "Goodnight" Bosco leaned in slowly and started to kiss Faith fully on the lips. She moaned into his mouth. She put her arms around him and deepened the kiss which made Bosco moan. She moved him backward and they fell on the couch. Bosco moved down and kissed her neck. His kisses were so soft and gentle and very passionate. She took off his jacket and threw it on the floor. She pushed him back on the couch. His hands met her waist and he lifted her shirt up a little bit. Her skin was so soft. Bosco felt like he was in heaven. He pulled her up and looked into her eyes and kissed her again. She explored her tongue in his mouth swirling it with his causing him to moan even more. She started to lift up his shirt kissing him on his stomach. She kissed him from his stomach all the way up to his lips. Bosco placed his hands on her waist and pulled her close to him. Things were getting Hot and heavy. Faith lost herself in his kiss.

"Oh god Faith you're driving me crazy" She continued kissing him and roaming her hands over his body. She sat on his lap and looked into his eyes. "You're driving me crazy too" She smiled and she kissed his neck hungrily. "Bosco..?" She called He didn't answer.

"Bosco?

"yeah" he finally managed to get out in between breaths

"Make love to me……….."
