"You were a risk, a mystery, and the most certain thing I'd ever know"
~Beau Taplin, "A certainty"
"Tutto è coperto." (Everything's covered.) Antonio informs taking away the file from me that I had just signed. I give him a nod, he knew I was grateful. I needed this break.
I go over a few more things with him before heading towards the mansion, I couldn't go there directly when I arrived, I first had to get some work settled in the warehouse but now it's all taken care of.
I have given away my responsibility to Antonio for some weeks, I need some time away from work so I can spend time with Valentina and maybe also convince her to marry me.
I know she's stubborn a
"Sometimes memories sneak out of my eyes and roll down my cheeks"~UnknownNothing could compare to the feeling of one's head resting on their mother's lap.Mother. A creation God created knowing fully well that the world would have been doomed without these amazing women's.I find myself thinking sometimes, how is it possible?How does the air around us suddenly calms down when we have our mother near us.How does a simple hug lifts off one's burdens from their shoulder without even uttering a word to her.How does she know when we need her soothing words or when we just need her silence with her magical touch.Guess I will have to wait to find that out myself.After months of working my brain so hard I could finally feel it relax itself by mom's
"We've got to live, no matter how many skies are fallen"~D. H. Lawrence"Tina was always the ugly sibling, look at this, her running nose in this picture" Everett cackles pointing at one of my pictures in which embarrassingly enough I do have a running nose."No! I was the cute one. You resembled like a grumpy grandpa when you were born. Dad tell him" I look at dad giving him a 'please take my side' look.He looks at me nervously then back at Everett, I follow my gaze only to see Everett making the same face. Dad clears his throat "none of you were ugly or resembled like a grumpy grandpa, be-" both Everett and I groan "–cause both were beautiful children all thanks to me your handsome father's genes" he points at himself proudly.Mom scoffs rolling her eyes, we all chuckle at dad's expanses. We were currentl
"I know my worth, I've paid dearly for every ounce of it"~ Alfa"Oh my!" I let out a breathless whisper as my eyes rake over his sturdy chest, why does he look like a fine ass meal? And why am I so hungry all of a sudden!?I clench my hands beside me as my fingers itch to trace those fine lines accunturating each peck. This man was a walking god and he knew it.I hear someone clearing there throat which quickly pulls me out of my incoming lusty thoughts, I gaze at Alessandro and find a cocky smirk etched on his stupidly handsome face.I missed this man so much! My subconscious sighs dreamily. Me too girl me too. I agree with her."Enjoying the view?" Alessandro asks in his deep voice while striding towards me, I melt at his accent but quickly compose myself "yes, the sea makes it
"Sometimes in the waves of change we find our true direction"~UnknownIt has been half and hour since the whole ordeal that had transpired between us, I was sitting on one of the comfy sofa.My mind was reeling with different thoughts, but the most prominent of them was the concern for my parents, I need to ask Alessandro about how long is he going to keep me here and find a way to contact my parents.I glance at the window, my eyes settle on a figure sitting comfortable on the sand near the sea shore, the waves come clashing together but die down just as they near him. Looks like the sea is scared of him as well. I paddle upstairs towards the bedroom in search of some suitable clothes to change into, I find a wooden chester at one corner, I pull open the first drawer and surprisingly enough I find my clothes in them.
"The best time for new beginnings is now"~ UnknownWhat is up with this man?I couldn't help but question myself as I hold out the beautiful dress infront of me. I inspect the delicate patterns that have managed to catch my breathe, I was baffled when I laid my eyes on this dress for the first time just few moments ago.After our late lunch Alessandro demanded for me to go back to our room, as quoted by him 'I have a surprise for you upstairs.' I was actually nervous about this 'surprise'.Since I have entered Alessandro's life, the surprises I have received from him— let's say they haven't been too pleasent. I couldn't help but think that maybe there was a long lost sibling of Alessandro's that has been found and is waiting for me in the room to be introduced.Just kidding!
"After all, soulmates always end up together."~Unknown"Aida.""Hmm?" I tilt my head upwards to have a better view of Alessandro, he was deep in thoughts while stroking my hairs. "I want to name our daughter Aida." he says placing his hand on my protruding stomach."It means happiness." He kisses my forehead, explaining further.I chuckle at his words, "that is a beautiful name but how are you so sure that it's going to be a girl? What if it's a boy?" I ask curiously as I place my hand above his.This was pure bliss.Him, me and our baby. No problems, no lies, no past.. Just us, our world."If it is a boy, then we will make another one so it would be a girl" he says with a big smile as if he has it all figured out, I laugh heartedly "that's not how it works, what if the
"With mirth and laughter let old wrinkles come"~ William Shakespeare10 years later..Alessandro's POV:"We've come so far haven't we?" Antonio says with a small satisfied smile as he closes the file I had signed seconds ago."Indeed we have uncle" I agree nodding my head slightly, "the business is flourishing, you are the first one in our generation to bring this family to where it stands today" he boosts proudly about my accomplishments.I was well aware of how much he loved to talk about how our mafioso is one of the most feared one in the world, I didn't stop him either knowing that there were only very few thin
