Bianca's mom glared at her. "where are you having those plans?" her mom asked"it doesn't matter, mom" there was a moment of silence, tension brewing."you're going to meet that boy again?" her mom's voice was laced with derision.she rolled her eyes."you met him a day before yesterday, isn't that enough?""it's not!" she blurted out before she could stop herself."can't you put a halt to those insignificant plans and follow me? your presence at the meeting with the Grecos will be of greater good "Bianca scoffed."my plans are insignificant but yours aren't?" she countered"they aren't just my plans!" her mom thundered "it's not personal, Bianca. our family is celebrating a truce and you're needed""so we are now yelling?" she shouted, to match her mom's voice"you have to come with us. you'll make your debut in the mafiadom. our boss needs to be known""I'm not ready to make any debut" she replied. "I told you I wasn't ""then what do I tell them when they ask about you?" "tell
A loud annoying sound rang out. it was her alarm. she made it annoying so she wouldn't be able to ignore it. she yawned as she lazily stretched her hand and put it off. she picked her phone. it was eight o clock in the morning. events of the previous day came flooding in. she picked up her phone , unlocked it and scrolled through the call log. she stopped when she found the number she was looking for. it was Lorenzos she inhaled as she waited for him to answer the call. "uh... good morning, Bianca" she heard him say over the phone. "how was your night?" he asked "it was good" she replied there was a momentary silence between them and she knew he was waiting for her to tell him why she called this early. "let's meet" she said "let's meet up, Lorenzo" "uh... sure" she could clearly hear the surprise in his voice. "I'll text you the location, okay?" he said "that'll be great, since you're good at doing it" she said "okay, see you" he replied and hung up. she let out an exc
he hadn't expected the call. he hadn't even expected himself to agree to meet her for the second time today.he didn't have much work to do right now, so he picked up his keys and went to his car.he drove to the venue and he saw her standing by the side of her car, looking dejected.he went to her."what's the problem?" he asked hershe forced a smile. "it's my mom" she said "I had a fight with her and now I don't want to go back home""it's fine. we can go to my house " he found himself saying to her. he hardly ever visited his bungalow but he always sent workers to keep it clean. he didn't want her to visit his family house where he lived in because most of his illegal mafia activities took place there and it required confidentiality."really?" she grinned broadly "that's cool"he led her to his car and began to drive her to his house. on the way, they stopped to buy groceries.they finally reached his house. "wow!" she said as she came out of the car "it's a beautiful house""tha
"so what do you think about it, Bianca?" her mom asked.it was eight o clock in the morning. she, her uncle Luigi and her mom sat down together, with some soldiers and capos surrounding them. they looked at a map which was on the table.it contained directions to a route in Sicily, where the Sforzas usually passed through after smuggling loads of stolen goods.she, her uncle Luigi and her mom had began to plan an attack on the Sforzas. they wanted to let their enemies know that they were getting ready for war. "it's perfect", said a darkly satisfied Bianca."so this is the route where the Sforza soldiers are gonna take when returning?" she asked"yes. it is" her uncle Luigi replied."that's where our soldiers are going to attack?""yes"she loved the act of revenge, especially when it was for her father. her soldiers were going to attack the Sforzas and plunder themshe turned to the capos that stood around."show no mercy" she said. "lead the soldiers. hide yourselves and wait for t
He hummed a song as he stepped out of the shower. he'd just called his office and gave others here and there. he sometimes wished he could book a quick flight back to where he stayed before his dad's death. he wished he could go back to the past but he couldn't.Now, here he was, burdened and running an illegal business, that was his legacy and getting dressed to go meet a lady who'd effortlessly taken his mind off everything.as he wore his shirt, he heard a knock on his door. the person who knocked entered the room before he could answer. it was his mum. her knock on the door was just a sound to alert him of her presence, not to seek his permission to enter the room."are you going somewhere?" came her hushed, guilt-ridden voice."obviously" he replied icily. he hadn't forgotten about the part his mother played in the death of his dad. in fact, ever since he found out, he hadn't spoken a word to her"it's been long since we spent time together" she said "I don't have time for that"
"why do the soldiers do all the dirty work?" Bianca asked her uncle Luigi. it was forty five minutes after eight in the morning and her uncle showed her around the warehouse behind their house. even after all her uncle Luigi taught her yesterday, her mom still insisted on her learning afresh today again. her mom had suddenly turned to a disciplinarian since her dad's death. she guessed the passing of her father was still taking its toll on her mom."they have the lowest ranks in all mafia families" answered her uncle Luigi"oh" she exclaimed "what about the capos?" she asked"they have a higher rank than the soldiers" he said "they are assigned to take care of the soldiers""how?" she didn't understand"each capo is assigned a particular amount of soldiers, to control and give them orders " her uncle explained"are the soldiers usually bigger than the capos?" she asked"it isn't always like that" he said "in most cases, yes"so mafia families were all about hierarchy? this was a new e
"yes," said Bianca "this is the place" she'd gotten herself prepared for the outing or she didn't know if she could call it a date with Lorenzo.she looked at her sprained ankle. it was good, it already started healing because June had done something about it.her mom didn't know that she went out so she had to be back before her mom found out. she was sure her mom wouldn't fancy the idea of her meeting someone when she was supposed to be learning family business, but her mom couldn't blame her, she needed a breather.Lorenzo had been quite specific on where they were going to meet and the dinner aspect of their meeting. what did he plan for her?"don't forget to come pick me up by exactly..." she looked at her watch "eight o clock" she said to the driver as she got out of the car."yes, BB" replied the driver, then he drove off.she got into the eatery, taking slow steps because her ankle still pained her. once she entered, she noticed there was no one in the restaurant, only Lorenz
" you can hit me now" June said. she was learning to fight and June was her opponent and her teacher. according to her mum, martial arts was essential for her. her mom was hell bent on making June teach her, amidst her constant opposition. she didn't need martial arts to survive in mafiadom, her dad didn't even know how to fight. he was always armed with guns and she'd seen him use it when she was a kid. she didn't know why her mom tried to make her different from the other mafia bosses before her."focus BB" again with the BB. she didn't want them to call her boss, not just yet. but her mom wouldn't listen, she made sure that everyone called her boss Bianca. "call me Bianca" she widened her legs as she made a hit at June"I'm not allowed to do that" said June, dodging the hit."well, I'm not comfortable with y'all calling me BB" she protested"you have to get used to it" said June "we will go back to attacking later, let's go to defense""okay...""I'll hit now!" said June, then fl
