We are only in Florida for two more days. I spent the night with Emma, I've hung out with both my siblings and in-laws, and last night we had another family dinner. These past few days Nic and I didn't do much. We had "meetings" for a couple hours a day but besides that we never were alone. Rose is having the time of her life with her cousins. It makes me feel guilty that we have to head back to Italy.
Today mom set up a picnic at a nearby park. She invited Nic but he could tell I was uneasy about him coming. He said he'd come if his meeting ended early, I thanked him for that. Mom keeps asking about him so I'm sure she knows about us, even though it happened, officially, a few days ago.
"Hey babe," Nic smiles as I exit the bathroom. I adjust my top as I find a pair of shoes. Nic is putting on Rose's black Converse, since he is already ready. He decided to look at a property not too far from the hotel because he's interested in b
Nicola's POV:I've only been at the picnic for twenty minutes, but Rose has already dragged me off. Once she noticed me she kept tugging at my arm to get me to go play with her. Elle kept telling her no because we were talking to her grandparents. Eventually I gave in and started to chase after her. Luckily I changed out of my suit into a pair of gray Nike Shorts and a black t-shirt.Currently I'm chasing after Rose, who is running around the tables. She is laughing hysterically as she runs. Elle is just laughing at the two of us now as she's trying to talk to her grandparents. I give it a little before I scoop Rose up in my arms and put her over my shoulder. She squeals as I walk towards Elle and she hits my back with her tiny fists."Rose are you hungry?" Elle asks as I get Rose over my shoulder and on to a chair. I take a seat in the chair I was in previously and I run a hand through my hair."You run your own business correct?" Her gr
Danielle's POV:We are back in Italy and I'm exhausted. Saying goodbye to my family was so hard, I think I cried so much that I ran out of tears. Rose was confused but she cried once she realized that our family wasn't going on the plane either. Nic finally distracted her on the plane with Toy Story. It was easier than trying to explain leaving over and over again. Before I left I promised to send more pictures and call almost everyday. Also that I would be at home for Thanksgiving. I know Nic won't care if I go.Back in Italy everything feels tense. There is a big deal happening in a few days and Nic is trying to make sure everything goes according to plan. I have no clue what the deal is, only the higher up members do. They didn't even tell Aurora because she now has a tendency to tell everyone, everything. Antonio blames it on her pregnancy. Speaking of, she is doing great and the baby will be here soon.Rose is glad to be back. She missed Lu
It the big day. The day of the long awaited secretive deal. Nic ordered that all the women, children, and staff were to go to the safe room. There are women who are apart of the gang who don't have house jobs. They actually are involved in the combat, so they are where Nic told them to go. There are men in the room with us standing by the door and along the wall. They are here just in case something were to happen. Rose stayed in Luca's room last night with him and Kiyara and I stayed with Nic in his room. He said it was just a precaution.The room isn't silent but it is quiet. Some of the kids are talking while they play with the toys provided. Rose is playing next to me with her Jesse and Woody doll. Luca somehow got her it. Aurora already told me she is getting Rose Bullseye for Christmas, and she made sure to let everyone know not to buy it before hand. Aurora is also giving me a list of items she wants for her son. Well she wants me to check it over to make sure it has e
6 months later..."This is it," I say to myself as I look into the mirror. "The big day. You can do this.""Are you done with the self pep talk?" Scarlett teases as she stands next to me."I'm so nervous," I say and she smiles."Every girl is," she smiles before turning to face me. "And you have every right to be. It's not everyday you get married." I smile and she clips the veil into my hair.It's my wedding day. April 28th. I told Nic that I always wanted a spring wedding so he wasted no time in planning it. He chose the venue and the date. I'm very indecisive so I let him chose the date. I chose the colors and flowers. Mrs. Rosi helped me chose center pieces and all the little stuff."My little girl," a gasp comes from my door. I turn around to see my parents. "You look breathtaking.""Thanks mom," I smile as she hugs me."This day came too fast," dad teases, "are you sure you want to get married?" Mom gasps
2 years later..."It's your turn," I groan as I roll over in bed. Nic groans in reply and pushes me lightly. "Nic seriously. Get your ass up.""I've gotten him the last two times! I have to travel to Spain in a few hours," he tries to argue but I don't budge."Go across the damn hall and quiet him down," I state firmly. "I didn't have your help the past few nights cause you've been off in Sicily. Now it's your turn. I have not slept in days.""Way to play the guilt card," he scoffs and gets out of bed. I smirk to myself as I snuggle closer in the blankets.After ten or so minutes the noise doesn't quiet down so I head to the room across the hall. When I open the door and chuckle. Nic is laying back in the rocking chair asleep , with little Cristiano curled up against his chest. I walk over to the two boys and pick up Cristiano carefully. Nic's arms fall to the arm rests and he stays asleep."My poor Cristiano," I smile as I
3 years later..."Cris be careful!" I yelled at my 3 year old son while putting down the plate full of hamburgers on the table outside with my no so little helper Rose. "Cristiano I'm coming for you!!" Logan yelled bounding after my son towards the pool.I shook my head at him but smiled. We were having everyone over for a barbecue today for my 27th and Nic's 33rd birthday. Since we were born only a fews months apart from one another we decided to celebrate it together this year. These past 5 years were the greatest years of my life so far. After giving birth to Cris on April 19th everything in my life changed once again. I quit my job in the kitchen and started working on writing my own book which is now out and has sold over a million copies. Nicola still runs his mafia business but tries his best to be at home with me, Rose and Cris. About a year after having Cris I found out I was pregnant again this time with a girl, little miss Carmen Rosi. She is the light of my life. "Mom
