"I made a mistake" Mafia Romano
The music was lively. People danced left and right. You watched from over the balcony. The cocktail you sipped on was running low.
“They just came in.” You rolled your eyes and sighed. Every week, Lovino Vargas brought his goons into your speakeasy and caused chaos. This would be the last week you’d allow it.
You handed the glass to the man standing on your left. “Okay. I’ll take care of it.” You stool and made your way down to the dance floor.
Lovino stood near the door. For the first time, you saw him without two big men on either side of him. “I didn’t come here to start any trouble. I just want to talk.”
“May we talk outside then,” you offered. The last thing you wanted was for Lovino to do something to any of you guests.
He nodded and stepped back through the door. You stayed in front of him. Lovino casually shifted his jacket so you could see the shiny silver on his gun. “What do you want to talk about?”
“I want to talk to you about buying your club.” He waved his hand lazily at the building.
You narrowed your eyes. “Why?”
He shone his nails on his suit jacket. “You get plenty of business, and it seems to be too much for you to handle.” Lovino paused. “Also, I’ll tell the police about what you did to Alex Mason.”
Without thinking, you reared back and punched him. Lovino fell backward as he clutched his nose. “That was a mistake.”
“You stepping foot near me was a mistake. Get out of here unless you want to end up like Alex Mason.”
With that, Lovino Vargas scurried off toward the street. You waited until you saw him the next week.
