These last few days have been chaotic. There's something going wrong with the shipping and someone's leaking information. I'm going crazy, I can't even sleep properly, and on top of that mi rosa left me because of my stupidness.
I can't get her face out of my head how she looked when she saw me kissing the maid. I feel ashamed of my own actions. I don't know what came over me for doing what I did.
I was too pressurized with work and I remember drinking to ease myself a little, but that maid suddenly came inside, sat at my lap, and started to unbutton my shirt. She started kissing me and just about I was to push her, Venessa saw us.
She looked heartbroken and her eyes glistened with tears, she so looked betrayed.
And when I followed her to the room, I saw her packing. My hands shook and my heart pounded hard. "Please don't leave me, please don't" were
Vincent's P.O.VShe hanged up! She did not even f*cking bothered about what I want to say and it pissed me; it made me so angry that I gripped the phone tight as if it can lessen the anger I'm feeling, but it didn't. I want to kill someone.Standing up, I threw the phone across the wall, feeling the beast inside me waking up. A growl escaped from my mouth as I looked around the room frantically for that piece of f*cking papers. What the f*ck is this shit about?.Advancing towards the corner of the room where the broken bedside table sat, a white folded paper that laid at the floor caught my attention. I bent and picked it up with my hands slightly trembling. I just hope it's not a divorce paper.Unfolding the creased papers, my eyes hastily scanned the entire paper and as once I did, relief flooded inside me but at the same time, I can't help but feel curious about what on hell i
Venessa's P.O.VOpening my eyes, I laid still in my bed watching the sunrise through the window. My thoughts drifted back with my conversation with Vincent, I thought he would call back but unfortunately; he didn't. I don't exactly know what I want, but I wanted him to call back and force me to talk about what's bothering me.Dragging my body towards the bathroom, I looked at myself at the mirror tracing the bruises I got from Andrew and Leonardo, they're slowly fading away and it is not as dark as it was before but it was still visible, if you would look closely enough.After taking a quick shower, I got dressed and headed downstairs as quietly as I can, since Lynda and Mario are still sleeping. It's still pretty early but I have to go early as I'm opening the diner and also because I can't even go to sleep no matter how hard I tried.Putting on my coat, I head outside and suddenly get slapped by the c
PrologueAfter losing her both parents Venessa Clay is left alone on her own. Despite her parents' death Venessa learned to be happy and content with her normal life, and normal job as a waitress in a diner.But will her life remain normal after the most dangerous Italian mafia leader Vincent De Costello laid his eyes upon her? After all, he always gets whatever he wants.She is simple, sweet, and innocent. Everything he never thought he would fall for but yet he did.Venessa's P.O.VThe bell at the door rang indicating a new customer. And as soon as the new customer stepped a foot inside the door, the whole diner fell silent. I looked up and saw the most handsome man I have ever seen in my entire life. He is around 6'3 and had the most alluring grey eyes that almost looked black and a midnight colored hair which is neatly sleek back making him a
Venessa's P.O.VAs soon as the grey-eyed monster and his friends left, I released a breath I didn't know I was holding. I was able to breathe more peacefully, and as much as I'm happy that he left, there's a small part in me dreading that I didn't even get a chance to know his name.It's true that he's a dangerous man but there's something that attracts me towards him and at the same time scares the living day out of me.After their departure, it looks like I'm not the only one who's relieved that they were gone, the whole diner went back to normal noisy place as if the burden on their shoulders were lifted off, but Tina, however, is dejected that they went away so quickly, ''I'm enjoying the view'' she said as she was looked at them or should I say stare.The time flew so fast that I didn't even realize that it was now time the diner closes.I went to th
Venessa's P.O.VAfter Andrew left, I was once again left with my own thoughts. My conversation with Andrew kept on circling inside of my head, making me feel like my brain is going to burst out of my head anytime soon by not being able to keep up with my billions of thoughts.I opened the door to my bathroom to take a shower in order to clear my mind.After taking a shower, I got dressed and laid on my bed, and once again thinking about the grey-eyed monster. A tired sigh escaped from my lips as I closed my eyes trying hard not to think about those beautiful grey eyes as I let sleep finally took over my body.*******An irritating sound blasted from my phone indicating it's time to wake up and go to work. A groan escaped from my lips as I opened my eyes to turn off my alarm.I lazily dragged myself to the bath
Vincent's P.O.VI ran my hand through my hair, gripping it, clearly pissed thinking who has dared to mess with me, with Vincent De Costello.During the last few weeks, someone in the family dared to give out information about the things we plan to do and definitely I'm no fool to think that it's just a coincidence that the rivals happened to do the things we, beforehand planned.Just a while ago, Alexander, one of my best friend, confirmed that there is definitely a rat in the house and it's not long before we catch it and since that moment, I can not stop thinking of ways I would make that person suffer from messing with me when every single man in my mafia know all too well that above everything, what I hate the most is betrayal.I openly admit that I am no saint, yes, I kill people but it's my job. I never wanted to be a part of any of this but I had to sin
Vincent's P.O.VEver since that day, I could not stop thinking of my little rose, yes, you read it right she's mine, since the moment I laid my eyes on her.I never felt this way before, no other girls but she can make me feel things I've never experienced.It has been exactly two days. I appointed my most trusted men to keep a watch on her, just to make sure she stays safe and also to reassure myself that she's safe and I can work in peace without worrying.The day that I came home from the diner, I immediately told Marco to do a background check on her and from the look that Marco and Alex gave me, I knew that were shocked as it was the first time I ever told Marco to do a background check on a girl.I don't normally do relationships as I think that they're just a waste of time but that girl is completely changing me and she doesn't even know, b
Venessa's povIt has been exactly one week since I received that strange phone call, and ever since that night, in the back of my mind there's something that keeps telling me that I'm being followed and watched but I can't pinpoint who and why would someone do such a thing, I mean why me?Also, I started having nightmares every night and as always it would be the same. I kept having that same nightmare, where I'm being chased by someone and I keep on running towards a dark alley until I reach a valley and as always I would wake up instantly, sweating and shaking violently.The constant nightmares deprived me from sleep that I started getting bags and dark circles on my eyes.On top of that, Mario and Andrew are really worried about me, they kept on asking me whether I'm okay or not and I keep on saying that I'm fine as I don't really want them to worry about me, they already had enough on their pl
