She texts his number, hopefully, it might not be in the toilet or the kitchen this time.    Carefully, she removed the lid and looked to see five men, one on the floor the rest standing, just watching him.    Her eyes drift off, she recalled something she never wanted to see again, something she fears.

Gio seems unsure of what she was still doing in the bathtub, with a plaster on her left forearm, her body looks like a healing bruise, and her eyes are dark like she hasn't been sleeping for days.    Something brought back his morals as he quickly placed his right palm over his open wide eyes and turned back.    "Alita!?" He waited for a few seconds but nothing, he got pissed and worried.

    Slight movement of the fingers, then the body, next to the opening of an eye. Alita winced as she tried to sit up instantly, her head still hurts so bad that she can not remember what kind of alcohol she had the previous night.  She let her body relax before she roam her lazy eyes around the room.   "Holy smoke!" She exclaimed as she looked around the strange room in terror.   Memories of what had happened before she got to where she was replayed themselves. She took one stead step down the bed, carefully, making sure not to step on the floor with her full weight.   She glimpsed at the figure of a huge man, she felt he might be huge for she could still see almost all the parts of his broad back even as he was seated on the chair, absentmindedly.   For a quick second, she decided to use her brain. She stood still for a while, expecting to get a reaction from him but none came. It'

   "You have proved that you can be a good boy," Rocco said as he walked hand in hand with Gio.  They passed several coded rooms, where they had to say their names and Rocco scan his fingers before entering. Finally, the last room opened to reveal Alita laying on the bed.   "Sorella? " Gio gasped, he made to rush to her but Rocco held his arm "Please don't hurt my sister" he pleaded.   Rocco smirked, he nodded in agreement and released the boy's arm. He took his stand at the corner of the room, his legs crossed as he lean on the wall.   "Alita" Gio burst into tears as he reached her, he shook her "Sorella"   Alita inhaled deeply, she opened her eyes to look at Gio. For a second or more, she went rigid, her cheeks dropped as she noticed the overflowing tears on his red face.    "It's okay Gio" she pulled him into a warm hug "I will get you back to where you want okay"
