Chp 1 - Leaving Ratsburgh Prison
“Three years! Three years of my youth wasted behind bars” Jason Monroe thought in a spurt of anger as he heard the heavily enforced gate of Ratsburgh prison clanked shut. Behind him.His momentary anger dissipated as happiness filled him because he was finally on the other side of that gate. The side of freedom. No more regulated time for everything. Time to sleep. To eat. To talk and to keep mute. No one was going to tell him what to do anymore.The thought that his beautiful Sonia would be here any moment buoyed his spirit even further. Though he had dreamed many times of her face being the first thing he would see after coming out of that detested gate but he knew she would be here soon.It had been such a long time. He understood her. He knew the reason why her visits had stopped. It was because she couldn’t bear seeing him behind bars without feeling guilty. Silly girl, she had always blamed herself for being the cause of his arrest. Coupled with the fact that Sonia who was in he

“Where?” Jason asked Silas in a menacing tone. Silas knew what he meant and his intentions. They have not been friends for years for nothing after all. “No, buddy. Don’t even think of it. You didn’t just get out of prison for me to see you walk in again or worse. No, man. No woman is worthy of you getting yourself ruined for. You know the Fitzgeralds. And you know that pompous ass is the worst of the lot. No, Jay. Let’s just go eat something and figure out…” Jason’s humourless laughter stopped him “Eat something you say? Damn it, man. My girl is about to marry that… that bastard and you think I will be able to swallow anything?” Jason paced in anger, his fist itched to punch someone. A particular someone. Silas sighed “I know this must be painful to you, Jay but that bitch is no longer yours. You have to let her go. Believe me, you don’t want to tangle with Matteo, that guy is a psycho” A thought occurred to Ja

Chp 3 - Dreaded Godfather
As Sonia spoke the hateful words without taking her eyes off him, Jason remembered when one of the prisoners pushed a warden, and the latter hit his head against a rail and fainted. When the other wardens came over to ask them to point out the offender and nobody answered, they were flogged with rods on their bareback after which they were asked to lie down, face up while the sun blazed. Jason had thought that was the most painful thing he would have to endure but the statement from Sonia caused him more pain than the inhumane treatment of the wardens. “What are you saying, babe?” he asked in disbelief, he took a step forward but was jerked back aggressively by the men beside him. Sonia who saw that he couldn’t get to her smiled in derision “Are you deaf? I have no idea that prison affected people’s hearing as well these days” “That is not a thing for a delicate flower like you to discover, after all, darling,” Matteo said beside her as he raised her hand and kissed her hands with

Chp 8 - Sensible Mrs. Sloane
The man standing guard in front of the room where she was kept opened the door for Jason as he approached. Jason nodded at him and the man shut the door behind him. The nod was more of a reassurance to the man that he would be fine. The man might have followed him otherwise. He realised that at least two of them was supposed to be with him at all time.

Chp 9 - The Note
“How can this happen!” the man growled in anger. His fury was palpable throughout the building of one of his majestic homes. The men standing guard in front of the study door dared not ventured in when he was like that. Not unless they wanted to lose their life. He swept his hand through the contents on his table, stationaries and clutters tumbled to the floor and a loud crash resounded when he tossed the snifter in his hand at the antique mirror above the mantle. “This is unacceptable!” he shouted “Nobody! Nobody deserved it more than I do! Nobody would take it away from me!” he roared and frissons of fear trickled down the spine of all that could hear him. He calmed himself down and smiled sinisterly. He shouldn’t agitate himself so. He thought as he sat back in his high-backed chair in the dimly-lit room. The maids knew better than to keep the room otherwise. The dimness of the room made it so much better when he put on his favourite images and motion pictures. The dimness of t

Chp 10 - Breaking Protocol
“Sir, is it time?” says the message.“No, it is not” Jason replied.He tucked his phone back into his pocket and looked at himself in the cheval mirror in his walk-in closet. He had on a striped shirt and suit pants. His black coat hung on the rack where one of his men had hung it earlier. He put on the black shoes that had been polished to perfection. Jason could imagine seeing his reflection in it if he so chose.Today is the day. He thought to himself as he picked a matching black hat. He looked at the array of walking canes in a row at the other end of the closet and shook his head.No, he wasn’t going that route. He understood that he must look the part but he was drawing the line at walking about like a self-important aristocrat. He knew that it was not about the extras. It was what he had inside that mattered. The Knights would expect a lot from him.Most of them would look down on him of course, which was expected as he had not been part of them since the onset yet there was n
