My name is Mia, and I am the middle child of Don and Donna Costa. I am also the black sheep of the family. Or the ugly duckling, as my mother would call me. My shift ended a few hours ago, but it takes me long to get home as I do not have a car like my brother, Leonardo, the oldest, or my sister, Amara, the beautiful one and youngest in the family. As you may gather from my story so far, my parents do not care about me. I walk into the house with a sigh. I have seen the cars in front of our home, and I know my family has friends over. "You have nothing I want! You stole from us, and today I will kill your whole family," I hear an angry voice. I wonder what my father has done this time to piss someone off. "Godfather, give me another chance. You can have my beautiful daughter as your wife," My father begs. Holy shit! My father stole from the godfather? I know the godfather is about thirty, and his name is Riccardo Marina. The Marina family is the most powerful in the American mafia. "I do not like blond blue-eyed sluts. I prefer women with dark hair. Besides, Everyone in town knows Amara Costa! She has been around the block," Riccardo says with disgust. I do not know what to do. Shall I hide? Not many people know my parents have another daughter. I am never invited to their parties as my family is ashamed of me. I do not care for my family, and they can die for all I care. "I have another daughter with dark hair. Maybe you will fancy her," My father begs again. I sigh. Typical!View More
Mia's POVToday we are celebrating love. It is my daughter's wedding. I cannot believe that life has come full circle. I once was Don Riccardo's mistress. Now, I am his Donna, and our baby girl is getting married. We have gone through so much together and will still go through so much more. My eyes are full of tears as I look at my beautiful daughter in her white wedding gown. She looks beautiful. I can't believe that I almost lost her daddy. He looks so proud walking beside her as he walks her down the aisle where Mark awaits her. I look at Oliver standing next to Mark. He is the best man. Eva is the bridesmaid. The two of them had surprised us and had been dating for a long time. I know Oliver is waiting for her to finish her studies before they get too serious. He knows Eva is still young and wants to enjoy her life on campus. Oliver is not jealous and allows her to go out with her friends. However, I know Eva does not go out. She does not like going out with Oliver. Daria and Dmi
Mark's POVIt is a few months after Enzo disappeared from our lives. Today I have decided to ask Olivia to marry me. First, I have to go to Don Riccardo and Donna Mia. I will have to ask him if I can marry their daughter. I am slightly nervous as I am from the Russian Mafia, and they are from the Italian Mafia. Oliver will take over from his father. I do not want Olivia to be my mistress. I want her to be my wife. I have too much respect for her to even think of her as a mistress. I know that is how Don Riccardo and Donna Mia started out. I have heard the whole story Olivia told me, and I find it very romantic. I want to show them that I respect their daughter. I will never turn into Enzo. I'm glad he is out of our lives, and we never have to see him again. I do not know where he is or what has happened to him. Olivia has been through so much. I will never hurt her, and I believe that Don Riccardo and Donna Mia will know that. She is the love of my life. I never want to lose her. Whe
Olivia's POVI'm sitting in my office waiting for Mark to come and fetch me for lunch. It makes me happy. Sometimes I still think about Enzo and the times we had together. However, after what he has done, I can never forgive him. He went after my family, which is a big no for me. He's getting a lot of backlash on the Internet and in the business community. Everybody knows my father and loves him. I cannot tell why Enzo has done what he did. What he did was take a very promising career and mess it up. I still do not know why he did it. I loved working with him the first time on the first game that we did together. I still think Enzo is very selfish and only thinks about himself. My office door burst open. Enzo Valentino is standing at my doorway."What do you want, Enzo?" I ask."Olivia, please let me just talk to you. I've got so much that I need to explain to you. I know what I did was wrong. I love you. I understand what I have done is wrong. I know now that I should never have take
Enzo's POV I did not expect somebody to find and post my files on social media, but I should have guessed that if somebody could find them, it would be Olivia. I guess I am exposed. This is the end of me because my company shares folded. I have nothing left to live for. I guess all I can do is go overseas. Nobody knows me there. I should make a new beginning. I have messed with the wrong families. I should not have tried to take on the Marinos. I should have known that I would stand by each other and that they would never turn against each other. What I did was wrong. I know that now. I should have listened to my parents and never taken on Riccardo Marino. I don't know what made me think I could win a war against them. It does not mean that I forgave them. I do not like him, but it's nothing I can do against him. He has won the war, and I am giving up. I have lost so much. I feel it is my own fault. I should have never taken a Riccardo Marino on. Can I turn back? No. I wish I could t
Olivia's POV Yes, I am in love with Mark. I cannot help it. He is a very handsome man. He is strong and reliable. It means more to me that he stands by my side than Enzo's looks. What Enzo has done is just wrong in my eyes. Enzo attacked my parents. He has asked for a war. My family is sacred to me, and I believe my family does not deserve what he does to them. I believe that my father was wrong. Even in the end, he did help Enzo's family. Enzo's mother and father are not holding a grudge against my father. So why is he? I cannot believe that Enzo has turned out so bad. I cannot believe that at one time in my life, I believed that I was in love with him. So now Enzo is going to have problems. I cannot believe that I have to do this, but I have to. I have to protect my family against a person like Enzo. " Are you okay, honey? It would be best if you did not feel wrong about what we will do to him. We have to expose him because of your family. We cannot lead your father to be blamed fo
Mark's POVI have seen the photos of Riccardo online. I know they are fake because I know that Riccardo Marino will never do something like that. I am very optimistic that his family is standing with him and that they will never believe that he will do something like that. They all know him, and they know how much he loves Mia. Enzo has gone too far this time. I understand that the Marino family will not stand for it. However, I know how to expose him once and for all. Tomorrow, Enzo will be revealed. I know he is the one that is behind the photos, and I know that it is him in the pictures. Enzo has made one big mistake. He has missed the wrong person. Also, he has not taken into account that Riccardo is a much older man than he is, and the body of an older man does not look like the body of a younger man. I sent him that message to let him know I would expose him. "Are you also looking at the photos of my father on the internet?" A voice comes from the door of my office. I look up,
Enzo's POV Everything is going wrong, and I do not understand why. My company is losing money daily. The Russian Mafia has abandoned me, and the Dons of the Italian Mafia are telling me they no longer want to work with me. I do not know what I have done wrong. I was so sure that I had everything planned out. Everything changed when Olivia showed up again. Was she even gone? I believe she was always working behind the scenes, making me furious. I thought she loved me and would not be a problem for me in the future. I was wrong. I have often seen her with Mark Ivanov in the last few weeks. I cannot say that I have enjoyed it. I still believed that Olivia belonged to me. If I can get her, I can get the Costa family. And with the Costa family at my side, the Valentino and Costa families will become more powerful than the Marino family. We will be able to take over the Godfather ring. If only I could persuade Olivia that I still love her and need her to send by my side against her own fam
Mark's POV The rest of the night we spent together in another nightclub. We have fun and soon forget about Enzo. We have promised ourselves that we will not think about him for the rest of the night. Valentino is nothing in our eyes. I can see that he did not even upset Eva or Olivia. He might think that he is still something in their eyes. He may think that he is irresistible to all women. He is making a mistake if he believes that Eva or Olivia or even thinking about him. We enjoy ourselves drinking a few drinks and dancing the night away. I like being close to Olivia, and I am sure she likes being close to me. The two of us are dancing the whole night. We forget about Oliver and Eva. We are enjoying ourselves as we dance. "Shall we go home? It is already late. I do not want to get you home too late. I do not think your father will appreciate it if I get you home too late," I say. I can see Olivia is not in the mood to go home. She pulls her face at me and sticks her tongue out.
Olivia's POV Enzo is becoming more isolated daily. He thinks that the Dons are on its side. He does not know that the Dons contact us and tell us everything he plans to do. Nobody likes him because he thinks he is better than everyone else. He believes he is the most clever person in the world. He thinks everybody around him is stupid. We are foolish and will allow him to take over the Italian Mafia. This is the beginning of his end. I am planning to ruin him financially over the next few months. Enzo needs to be humbled. He may be clever, but he is not a very good businessman. Yes, he made money from his tech company, but only because he has been the only one in the game. Not that I am giving him a little bit of trouble with the tech company. His stocks are falling, and most Dons are out to help me ruin him. Enzo has pissed off a lot of people. He has used him, and he has used their daughters. I'm going on a date with Mark, Eva, and Oliver tonight. I do not know where they plan to
