To say that these men were scaring me with each passing second wouldn’t be a lie.
Alessio kept his eyes on me throughout the entire drive as to study my body language, but having learned how to deal in such situations. I managed to keep myself as calm and quiet as I could as not to stir the man, or give him any hints of fear which he could hold against me.
“Where are we going?” I asked after a few minutes of silence. I was trying to process the danger that I was in, the fact that Alessio knew that he could hurt me didn’t escape my mind. The man was three times my size, and not to mention that he wasn’t alone. The three men could kill me in a second if they put their minds to it. Just the thought of that made me look out the window as I thought of the dangerous game that I was playing.
Maybe this wasn’t a good idea after all.
Nonetheless, there was no turning back now. I needed to do this, I wanted to prove to myself and dad that I can d
Alessio:“His body was delivered, boss” one of my men, Dimitri, said as I sat in my office. Having been waiting for the news since yesterday, I wondered about his reaction. But then again he was the last man to have a reaction when it came to anything concerning anyone but himself. Dimitri has been the one to make the call to me to come to the office when he first got the news. He also knew that he couldn’t technically say it out loud, therefore, calling us here was the better option.“Has he said anything about it? Orr was it as we expected?” I asked despite already knowing the answer. It was a case common between such men who had NO weaknesses, however, usually a the weakness would be your child. But he had proved to us years ago that he had no weaknesses toward his OWN bloodline when he called in the men to rape his daughter right in front of him.“Not a single word, boss, at least for now” Dimitri said. I nodded dism
Kiara: To say that I was annoyed would be an understatement, first the bastard Jeremiah tried kissing me, and now this bullshit. These men were really playing with my patience, and I didn’t like being toyed. “By all means, Aslanov, do make your shot” I said glaring at the man who raised an eyebrow at me. Truth be told, I knew that it was risky, and I knew that it could cost my life. But I wasn’t stupid, he was well aware of the trouble that he would get into if a single hair on my head was harmed and I knew that he wouldn’t want to deal with such matters. It would simply cause him an unwanted headache. “Really? If you’re counting on dad to stop me, then you are very wrong, malyshka” Baby girl. Alessio smirked and I laughed in a mocking manner. “Sure, I would be counting on your father for my safety” I said sarcastically before I glared at the man “do you really believe that I’m as stupid as to count on a mafia man who I don’t know? Really, Ale
Alessio:“Boss, what are we going to do with this?” Ivan asked looking at the information we found about Kiara’s dad, Kyle Anderson…“Nothing, for now, we’ll do nothing” I said looking at Kiara who was unconscious on my couch. Her chest rose and fell as she breathed, having made sure to knock her out without technically hurting her. I had to know who this woman was, and doing it while she was awake was not something that I wanted to do, especially knowing who she was and her ability of actually being able to change the information we wanted.“What do you mean by nothing, Alessio? The woman could be dangerous…”“She was telling the truth, Ivan. The girl doesn’t know of what her father does” I said stopping Ivan who frowned in confusion at the sureness of my tone. But a girl like her would have nothing to lose, and if she claimed that the man had killed her mom. Why would she st
Kiara:“Where the hell were you?” Mr. Damien asked the second we entered the house. Alessio looked at me and I had to fight back laughing at what he had planned on telling his dad, which was basically the truth. But we were technically curious about his reaction. Whether or not he would believe Alessio, or whether he’d end up shooting him with a gun. Ivan and I were already making bets.“Now, now, Damien, we already talked about this. The men are no longer children, it’s bad enough that you hired them some hundred year old babysitter who they probably killed” a man said from beside Mr. Damien. My eyes widened at his description of me, and all three men tensed for a second, looking between me and the man. However, the man paid them no attention as he looked at me and smiled, extending his hand to me “and who might you be? Which of these idiots managed to swoon you this time?”“Well, I’m the hundred year
Alessio:I glared at Kiara as I put her phone in her hand.Her eyes were wide in both fear and confusion. I had initially gotten out of my office to give her the phone since Ivan had it, only to be surprised that she was playing psych on me.To say that I had wanted to test who she was loyal to wouldn’t be a lie. However, I didn’t expect to be disappointed so soon. But then again, what did I expect from a woman who was bound to us by contract and money. She had no loyalty toward any of us, she was here looking for her benefit of money, and that was something that I did not trust or respect.“Alessio…”I chose not to answer her calling my name. It was ridiculous that she believed that she could read me when she just met me, and that simply proved how untrained and unprofessional she was. Having seen Arda go to psychiatrists before, I knew the process, and I knew for fact that no professional psychiatrist would give an
Kiara:“Mum!”My eyes snapped open as I breathed heavily.My hands shook as I fought to calm my heartbeat and heavy breathing.The dream repeated itself once again.Seeing my mum in that car as my dad pulled me away from it.Seeing her body fall limp, blood, I remember blood. Her eyes open, her lifeless body. It was a pain that I’ve been living with since that night, and no matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t stop it. I didn’t want to admit it, but I knew that Alessio was right. At least he was able to rest knowing that he was fighting for his mum, knowing that he wasn’t leaving her blood to go in vain. What did I do? Nothing, I lived with the man who killed her, I looked him in the eye every day and every night. I smiled at him, I hugged him, I even took care of him when he was ill.I didn’t deserve to be a daughter, she should’ve lived that day. I shouldn’t have, she came back ho
Alessio:I watched as Kiara looked down at her feet as dad yelled. She didn’t understand what we had done, but she should’ve been smarter than think that we would do nothing at night.Artur shook his head at me, his eyes hardening as he looked at me and I frowned in confusion at his change of demeanor. He was never one to care about what happened when it did. It was something that we all loved about him, no matter what happened, he was always chilled and calm.I looked at Ivan who was looking at his dad who was glaring at us. Kiara didn’t answer dad, however, she turned around to go back up to her room rather than join us in the dining room.“Kiara…” Arda tried, but she didn’t answer. It was literally a minute later when she walked back down, holding her purse in her hand, she walked out of the house, slamming the door shut behind her.“The woman had nothing to do with the men’s actions, Damien
Kiara:To say that I was enjoying the night out with the Aslanov’s would be a lie.It was as if they were determined to show me that me being here was not necessary. That they were who they were and what they were regardless I was here or not.I was currently sitting on the bar, watching the family bond from far. Me being by their side made no sense anyway, and I was stupid to think that Alessio inviting me to tag along meant that he was actually willing to give me a chance to help him out.I looked down at the drink which was in my hands, it was my third one tonight and I was nowhere near being drunk. My mind raced as I looked into the glass, maybe I wasn’t ready for such a responsibility.The fact that I had failed to do my job on my very first day annoyed me, and to get scolded for something that wasn’t even my fault. It wasn’t like I wasn’t with these men throughout the day, they even took me to some house or cotta
