I looked at him quizzically.
He raised his as up in surrender and said, "Don't look at me like that. I'm taken."
He showed me the ring on his finger.
I blushed in embarrassment and said, "I'm so sorry. What's your wife's name?"
"Carina Rasti. I love her a lot."
I chuckled and said, "I can tell."
"Anyway, the job is yours."
"Thank you so much!"
"Your work starts from tomorrow. Everyday 8 o'clock sharp. No tardies."
"No problem Mr.Rasti."
I took my file and left.
Celia asked me, "Well..."
"I got the job."
She seemed to be more happier than me. She hugged me over her cubicle and said, "We'll be the best of friends, I can tell."
I went back to my apartment after grabbing some dinner and
Giselle's POV:One year later:I became cold and detached throughout the year. I became a master in judo and I'm still on the search for men to join my mafia.Actually, I already got all the men I needed and I was training them by myself. They were all so bloody loyal to me and of course, I was their mama bear. I just needed a right hand man.It took a hell lot of work to find these men. I collected them from around Europe. It was only possible since I quit my job.I was establishing my own company, Inkheart Corp.I was travelling around Europe to find myself business partners and I was lucky that I found my men too. I killed two birds with one stone. My company is doing good so far with a good number of employees. It's quite small, though.For now, it's in Italy, but I will expand my company.
Giselle's POV:Still kneeling down, he said, "They are the real lucky ones to have such a caring leader like you. You act just like their mother. If they're ashamed of having you as their leader, then they're not real men. I've never seen a mafia leader like you.""Okay. Okay. Enough with the cheese, get back in the car. I'm about to puke."After that, Kaun dropped us back to my house.After we entered, I locked the door and showered. After I showered, Venettio showered as well. We both sat on the couch and I said, "Okay, now spill.""Spill what?""You know what I'm talking about."He laughed and said, "Looks like I underestimated you. Kaun blew it, didn't he?"I crossed my arms and waited for him to speak. He huffed and slumped in the sofa."There's a lot to say and there's a lot that you wouldn'
Giselle's POV :Being a mafia leader is not easy at all. Especially since I'm a woman.... the society doesn't accept easily.The new recruits are a bother to me. People challenge me at least once a week.Kicking them out is an easy task, but getting new recruits was so dang difficult.Of course, since I quit my job, I had a lot of free time. I was fending myself from the previous money that I earned.I have men working for me because of my motive, but that doesn't mean they don't challenge me.I'm viewed as a weak leader. I know it's stupid to build a mafia just because of judo and of course, I'm not stupid.I had lots of time after I quit my job. I was living off my previously earned money.After about half a year later, I started my company. I managed my time between my company and martial arts training.
Giselle's POV :The next day Venettio started his work and I started mine.I called him and said, "Celia will show you the strings of the company.""Giselle, I know the strings of the company.""How?""Do you know Inspiration Inc.?""Yes. It's gone bankrupt. It was an amazing company. Why?""That's my company.""You're joking.""I'm not joking. It's my company I established with my own hands. I'm trying to save it from its bankrupt condition."I was truly shocked. "How did it go bankrupt?"He heaved a sigh, "My father did it.""How?""It's ironical how he made the police believe that my company was illegal. I need to put his mafia down to bring my company back up. The men in his mafia are demons. They are inhumane."
Giselle's POV:I woke up in a hospital room and found some gauze on my shoulder.Venettio entered the room and walked towards me."Why did I pass out?""The knife was poisoned.""Oh.""What the hell were you thinking?! You treat your men like women! Why are you protecting men?! They're perfectly capable of protecting themselves. Never forget that you're a woman Giselle. There's a limit for everything.""That's an amazing way to greet someone who woke up after getting stabbed with a knife."He sighed and dragged his hand down his face."Why do you even care so much and don't you have a date with Celia tonight?""I care about you because you're my boss. You took me in when no one did.""He acknowledges that I'm his boss!"He looked at me and I said,
Giselle's POV:It's finally the day of the event. I'm dressed in a skin tight, floor length silky red dress with a slit on my right leg. My hair is left down and I have red lipstick and some mascara on.I looked at myself in the mirror one last time and grabbed my clutch. The air was knocked out of my lungs when I saw Venettio. He was in a navy blue suit and his hair was gelled back. His piercing grey eyes found my green ones and his mouth slightly parted upon seeing me."Dio mio! You look beautiful! No wonder Kaun calls you hottie mama."I blushed and said, "You look handsome too. What are we waiting for? Let's go."He took a hold of my hand and walked us to the car. He opened the passenger door for me and got into the driver's seat.We drove off and after 1 hour, we reached the place. Only me and Tio decided to come.I would've
Giselle's POV :I went to work and I saw Venettio and Celia together.I went to my office room and there was a sharp jab in my chest. It was painful, but I shoved it aside and started doing my work. My company is doing great. I couldn't be more proud of it.I saw Venettio putting his hand on Celia's shoulder. He was going closer to her and before something happened, I shut my eyes tight. I needed to give them their privacy. Once again, the sharp jab returned.I immediately got up and went to the hospital without looking back.I paid for an appointment with the cardiologist and finally after half an hour of waiting, it was my turn.I went inside and saw a man with a kind smile and balding head."Take a seat Ms. Marcello. I'm Doctor Torpor."I took a seat and he asked me, "I've heard that you've been having some hea
Giselle's POV:He wrapped his arms around my stomach and I was shocked.Suddenly, I felt wetness on my exposed skin. WHAT?!I lifted Venettio's head and saw his glossy red eyes."Are you high?" I asked him in anger."I lost. I'm addicted. It's over."Before I could respond to him, I heard his soft snores. Deciding not to disturb him, I pushed a button on the couch which turned it into a bed. I let him sleep.The next morning, I noticed that Venettio was up before me. I heard him in the kitchen, so I decided to brush my teeth.When I came into the kitchen, I saw Venettio and said, "You have a lot to explain mister."He looked at me with tired eyes and said, "What non sense did I spout?""Something about you losing, some addiction and it's over. You even admitted that you were
