Addison woke up with a headache that feels like cracking her head in two. She groaned in pain as she tried to move. Her body was too weak. She can’t open her eyes and she feels like her entire world is spinning around. Her gut hurt and she wanted to throw up but can’t seem to do it. Again, she tried to move, but to no avail. Panic rattled her very core. Why can't she move her body?Using the remaining strength that she has, she opened her eyes only to be welcomed by darkness. As she scanned the room that she was in, she found she was in a room with no windows at all. The single bulb hung from the ceiling, flickered, the only thing that gave light to the dim room.She tried to move again, but couldn’t. When she looked down at herself, she just realized that she was bound to a chair. The reason she can't move was the rope that had her body tied down. ‘That’s when she knew she was abducted. Memories came in like a flash of lightning, filling her head with the memories from last nigh
Luca and Alessio were the ones who were tasked to tail Addison Harper. The duo was known for their cruel nature, and Luca was licking his lips as he stared at Addison. The moment Luca saw her, he was already burning with desire. His eyes traveled her body, and he imagined lewd things inside his mind. He just has to wait until they abduct the woman, and he will definitely have his way toward her. No one will know except his partner, not unless Alessio will squeal. “Hey, what are you thinking, man? You look like you’re going to devour that woman.” Alessio noticed how his partner raked his eyes to the woman they were tailing. It's not good news. He had to admit that she was a natural beauty. With her blonde hair and emerald green eyes, not to mention that she has the right curves in the right places, the woman is really every man's desire. Alessio shook his head. They were going to be in trouble if Luca can’t control himself and raped the poor woman. The young master specifically to
Addison was biting her lips as she stared at her boss, Kirk Woods. She just gave to him her paper and now he’s reading it. Her heart was beating faster than it usually does. Her hopes were high that Kirk will approve, and even though she had doubts, she maintain a high spirit. After all, she believed in the practice of a positive mental attitude. As expected, there was no news about what had happened last night at the mansion of the Morellis. Addies had expected this since. Wealthy people always have the power to control the media. What’s the use of having a lot of money if you can’t buy it with anything?Addie firmly believed money could buy anything, a perfect example of that was the life of her younger brother. If her boss will approve of the paper, then she will be the first one to release such news, and of course, her name will make noise, just as she wanted it to happen. She glanced at the clock mounted on the wall. Kirk had been reading her paper for a straight ten minutes,
Simon stared at the body of the dead cat that was placed on the buffet table. His face was void of any emotions. Behind him were Marcus and Giov. In the background, his father uttered different curses. Emiliano was beyond angry because of what happened. Simon, on the other hand, remained silent and calm, even if the whole clan was in panic.Federico was standing beside Emiliano, trying to say sensible things to the enraged mafia boss. All the other members of the family were also there, witnessing the rage of their leader. Everyone except Emiliano was cursing, no one dared to say a thing while their boss was in the heat of rage. “Merda! They fucking dare to do this on my son’s welcome party! I will not tolerate this!” “Whoever did this, they must have people inside the clan. This is not the work of a single person, that I am sure.” Federico assumed. All the guests had already gone home. After all the panic and ruckus, Simon still had thoughts in keeping all of the visitors safe.
Addie was about to utter a word when suddenly the lights of the whole mansion went off. Panic shot through her as she can't see even a single thing. "Great! What the hell happened? Why did the lights go off?" That was her initial reaction. She can't be alone in the dark with this strange man with an Italian accent, it reminds her of those sexy Italian mobster movies she used to watch with her asshole ex-boyfriend. Whispers of panic can be heard as the visitors tried to grab out in the dark. “Cazzo!”Addie heard the man curse in hard Italian. She recognized the word since it’s a famous cuss word. Salvatorre Morelli is from a long lineage of wealthy Italian businessmen, so it's not a surprise his men were also Italians. She was instantly on her feet and tried to pull the hand that the stranger was holding. “What’s going on?” She asked the man again, absentmindedly. There was definitely wrong with these people. She can’t see a single thing, and in a mansion owned by one of the wea
As Simon scanned the crowd before him, looking for some suspicious-looking person. His eyes stopped at the woman who was standing. Or the proper to describe the woman was that she’s hiding from the shadows. She may be trying her best to hide, but she got Simon’s attention, simply because she looked so regal and beautiful in that black dress. From the looks of it, it’s not an expensive dress like what most of the women at the party wore. Simon had an eye for expensive and cheap things. That only means that she’s not invited to the party. A gate crasher. Simon ended his speech with a smile, and the crowd applauded. The moment he exited the stage, he was greeted by several businessmen who wants to get to know him. They swarmed him like he was a sweet candy and they are the ants who wanted to have a taste of him. “Congratulations, Mr. Morelli. Your father must be so proud of you!” An old man approached Simon and offered his hand for a shake. He took off his mask, revealing his wrinkl
Emiliano Morelli threw a party to welcome back his son, Salvatorre. The old man can’t stop talking about it and was so excited to announce to the world that Salvatorre will take over the company for he will soon retire from his position. It is not just Emiliano who’s excited, everyone in the business industry wanted to meet Salvatorre. Everyone was curious about what he looked like and what will be his contribution to the business sector. And of course, there were those who dig up his past and dirty secrets. Simon or Salvatorre, as his family calls him, didn’t want a grand party, but his father wouldn’t agree to it. They fell into a brief argument and Simon he would not win against his father. This leaves Simon no choice but to agree with his father. On one condition, it must be a masquerade party. Those who will be invited will have to wear a mask, and Simon will be able to hide his face from the public. He has no pictures uploaded on the internet since his mother was so adamant a
It’s been a week since Simon moved to his new condo unit, and everything was running smoothly. All he did the whole week was to study all the past transactions in both Morelli Inc. and also in the activities involving the underworld. He needed a piece of strong evidence that there was some discrepancy going on in the records. He just had to find the culprit of it and let him pay.The Morelli crime family dominated the underworld for the sole reason that they feared how vast the connections they have. They practically have all eyes and ears in all departments of the government, and not only that but they were also affiliated with the mafia clans from other countries. Not to mention that most of the mafia bosses from other families trusted them the most than other families. There were five crime families in New York, and though they had created a separate body to enforce the law between themselves, the Morelli clan dominates almost all of them because they were much wealthier and more
