My eyes widened when I took sight of my mother who was standing in front of me with a menacing smile. Her eyes met mine and she winked at me before the men who were with her blindly attacked us.
“I trust that you said your goodbyes to your children before leaving the house? You know, as parents would to their kids before traveling” mum mocked “though I believe that your trip would be taking a little longer than they would be expecting”
“Kiara, run” Alessio said but I shook my head. If he was going to fight this, I would be by his side until the end of it.
I kicked a man that approached me in the face breaking his nose before punching him in the face. However, I was surprised when the man didn’t flinch for a second. No, the man threw punches at me as if the blood which was now smudging his face was nothing. I frowned in confusion, trying to understand what was going on. But now wasn’t the time to proce
Alessio:I ran my fingers through my hair as I watched my wife’s chest rise and fall in her sleep.The oxygen mask on her face helped her breathe, and I hated the fact that she had all the machines plugged around her for her to be able to at least breathe normally.“Alessio, she’s going to be fine” dad assured and I shook my head. She’s been sleeping for the past two weeks. Thankfully, the men reported to Ivan that there was an ambush at the airport. They had come with everything to help us, but when they arrived, the bombing started nearly killing them too.The room that we were in kept us safe for a few hours while they removed the ruins around us to get us out. Yasmina broke her arm and bad a few cuts, but thankfully, her and Paolo’s injuries were quickly treated and they were waiting for Kiara to wake up before they left.“She’s a strong woman, Alessio” Paolo said catching my attention &ldqu
Kiara:I stayed quiet for a while as I processed what Doctor Anastasia had told me a while ago.My hand rested on my stomach, where my child once was, and I sighed.The fact that I didn’t know of this pregnancy was something, but the fact that I lost the baby was another. But judging by the circumstances that I was in, I wouldn’t have been able to protect the baby if I knew of it anyway.“How are you feeling, baby?” Alessio asked and I sighed.“I’m fine, I guess. It would take a while to digest what I heard but anyway, we’ve gotten out of worse, right?” I said smiling at my husband. He took my hand in his and kissed my knuckle softly.“It was my fault for what happened, I shouldn’t have…”“Now, now, you blaming yourself would do nothing, love. I don’t think you planned for an attack at the airport, nor did you plan for mum to come out with brain-contr
Alessio:I wrapped my arms around my wife hugging her tightly.“You take it easy today, malyshka. If anything happens, just call me and I’ll be back in a few minutes” I said cupping my wife’s cheeks. She smiled and nodded, she stood on her toes and connected our lips making me smile. I rested my forehead against her own.“Don’t worry, love, I’ll be fine. I have Natasha by my side if anything happens, and I’ll be sure to be easy on myself until you’ve arrived” Kiara said smiling. I nodded and wrapped my arms around her shoulder as the two of us walked out of the room and down the stairs. I was thankful for her being safe and happy. I knew that she still felt pain for our lost child, though she made sure not to show it to anyone, she was my wife, I could read her like an open book.“Boss”“Ivan” I nodded and he smiled. Kiara helped me wear my jacket as she usually did
Kiara:“What happened with Sienna?” I asked. My curiousity got the best of me, and I couldn’t help but find out.“She came here to ask dad for help over a promise that he gave her when he was Pakhan believing that I would take part of it. At first, I kicked her out…”“Alessio, why on Earth would you kick out a woman that came asking for your help?” I asked stopping my husband. He sighed and ran his finger over my own.“She’s been walking around believing that she’s queen…”“Alessio…”“At least let me finish what happened since you asked” Alessio teased and I shook my head at his behavior.“Go on”“Then she warned me about Allessio coming to the family. It only took me hearing his name to go against what I initially planned, as this war was now mine too” Alessio said and I nodded intertwining our
Alessio: “Boss, we’ve literally searched everywhere we could think of, Arda is either hiding somewhere, with someone, or he has left New York” Ivan said looking me in the eye. I banged the table, knocking down a few pens that were on it, before pinching the bridge of my nose. “The man couldn’t have gone to the airport without us finding out. Our men have been searching for him since he left the house” I said looking Ivan in the eye “and it’s not like they don’t know how he looks like. The man lived under the same roof with them” “How did it reach to here, Alessio?” Ivan asked pinching the bridge of his nose “why the hell would he suddenly turn against the whole family, there’s literally no excuse that I could think of that would explain why he’s done so” “Believe me, Ivan, if I had the answer to that question; I would have given it to you. But the two of us are just as oblivious to what the man had planned, or why he had done so. Especially considerin
Kiara:“I was thinking that we could go do our nails tomorrow” Natasha said looking at her nails as we watched a movie.“And how are you going to convince Alessio to let the two of us out of the house? In case you haven’t noticed that I was on bedrest lockdown” I teased and Natasha laughed. I laid my head on her shoulder as she ran her fingers through my hair in a comforting manner.“How are you really feeling, Kia? I know that you and Alessio talk about it. But how are you feeling? I’m asking you as a sister” Natasha asked and I sighed.“Honestly, I don’t know. I’m tired I guess, everything seems to be tightening on me; but I know that I should be strong for Alessio. The man is going through a lot, and with everything that he should be dealing with I can’t worry him about me too” I said and Natasha nodded “as for my baby, as I told Alessio, I feel guilty about losing my c
Alessio:“That’s my beauty” I said encouraging Alexandra who smiled. She clapped her hands in satisfaction and Kiara kissed her temple proudly.“That’s our big girl” Kiara said smiling. Alexandra jumped off the couch excitedly. She fixed up her things and kissed my cheek then her mom’s “go shower, princess, then head down to dinner”“Would you be joining us, mum?” Alexandra asked. Kiara looked at me and I smiled nodding at her. The respect she had for me to at least ask for something like this made me smile, it was a silent agreement between the two of us. The respect for one another was mutual, but the fact that she taught our kids not to cross their father by showing them that she herself trusted him before even they did was something that I appreciated a lot.“Yes, printsessa, mom will be joining us at dinner tonight. But you won’t be tiring her; she’s still very weak&r
Kiara:I paced around the bedroom as I thought of what I just heard.The fact that I knew that it was mum who was behind this worried me more than I could describe, and the fact that I knew who they might be after scared the life out of me. If the woman called Alessio, and not only that, came all the way here seeking for help. It means that she was in danger, and knowing my husband, the man was only helping her out with Allessio’s sake because it was his war too. He couldn’t care less about her safety as a person, and I knew his reasons for that.I picked up the phone, using the safe line as to ensure that no one could track the call. The danger that we were all in was unknown, and I would rather not risk any of us getting caught in situations that we wouldn’t be able to handle.I took a deep breath before calling. I knew that the woman despised me because of where I came from. My father’s reputation was known around the mafia fami
