Chapter # 1

I stood at the altar, knowing what was about to happen but still a smile was plastered upon my lips. My heart flutters in happiness because that’s the day I am going to marry the love of my life, Lydia. She is my everything and now I want to spend my life with her. I cannot explain my content, a feeble emotion of love and benediction filled me up. My blue eyes glistened in excitement to espy the upcoming moment. I am looking forward to it. I ran my hand in my black hairs and and turned to looked at my Best friend Christian Elvis, looked at me with a smirk and showing me a thumbs up.

I chuckled and turned away, waiting for my bride to come and end this tormenting wait of mine. As I was waiting, one of my men came to me,

“Mr Moretti.” He called me. A faint smirk crept upon my lips as I turned to look at him. He whispered something in my ears as my eyes widened in horror. My heart clenched and broke to pieces. My lips began to quiver as I lost my strength. It hurt me more than I could have anticipated. Breaking apart, I ran to the dressing of Lydia and saw her corpse lying there. My world comes to a crash. I lost my ability to think. I was devastated to see the sight before me. My love fell apart that day…


I woke with a loud gasp, I began to pant because of my nightmare. Just when I was about to start a good day this horrible nightmare ruined it. I sighed and ruffled my hair and got out of my bed. I don’t want any thing to destroy my day. I have to keep my calm and don’t worry about things much.

I stood under the shower as the cold droplets of it drenched me. I tried to let out the horrendous sight to get out of my mind so that a lull can take over. I have never been that nervous in my life before. But, I know how to wrap things up. I just have to do what Kathrine told me.

“Look, The relationship arouse from hate is much stronger that others. It’s strength would be greater than anything else.”

I took a deep breath and got out of the the shower. It’s doesn’t suit the Head of Mafia leader to act afraid. I am someone people soul’s should tremble to hear but I have to keep myself identity a secret. From the outside, I am a simple businessman but the reality is my whole childhood started and end in the dark world. After countless struggle and hardships I have gained this position. I am like the puppet master of the Mafia leaders, their strings are in my hand and there’s was actually a point in my life where I want to stop and let it go but since when I was bestowed with love? It’s just a short-lived passion, It’s simple for me. I get what I want.

I got ready and went to breakfast. It’s a habit of mine to hear about work in the morning while having breakfast- I don’t know, just to spoil my mood.

“Sir, That investigator James found of the shipments of morning.”
”Shipments of what?” I said taking a sip of my coffee.

“Guns, Sir. They were trading under your name. If he found out what exactly you were exporting, it would be fatal.” I stopped and when I heard it. I cursed under my breath and stood up. My temper is something I cannot control. It just got the best of me.

“You should have told me this before, Idiot!” I yelled. I took my phone and my sunglasses left. I never fails to destroy my day but that’s the only ways for me to get out of that loneliness inside me. I grit my teeth and went to the port and saw Christian talking to the officer. I let out a sigh of relief knowing he got my back. He may have left the Mafia world but always been there for me.

I got out and walked to him,

“Hey, dude, What happened?” I asked being oblivious as I didn’t know what happened.

“Nothing, Mr Moretti, just a survey.” James said. I gave him my mocking smile and asked, “Well, enjoy yourself Officer.” He narrowed his eyes at me and challenged, “Just you wait, Mr Tyler Moretti. It will all end soon.”

“For you.” I remained still said with my smile and he left. After he left, I scoffed and shook my head.

“You should go and enjoy your wedding. It’s the first day.” I teased. He rolled his eyes off and remained silent. “I am leaving for work. Good Luck.” Christian said and left. After he left I sighed and called the incharge of the shipment,

“George!” He came and I looked at him in irk, “How did the information got out?” I asked direly. “I-I don’t M-Mr Moretti.” He said, afraid. The way he speak it’s clear he would dare to betray me. “I want you to find this person in a week or else you will pay for his deed.” I said threateningly. “Y-Yes, Sir.”

I then took a look around and decided to give a ‘warm gift’ to the Officer Jame so that low level guy could know his place and of course.

I certainly didn’t made him transferred to another city on purpose so that he won’t sniff on my work like a dog he is.

And after that tiresome and monotonous day, I decided to have a coffee and lunch in a quiet place to calm my mind.

I went to the Amber one hotel as the waitress asked, “What would you like to have, Sir?” You. That’s what I wanted to say. I mean she was cute and if we met in a bar, I would love to spend my night with her.

“Hmm.. A cold coffee.” I said and began to use my phone. Do not pay attention. She left and came with a cold coffee. My heart began to beat fast, almost about to burst from my chest. My hand turned cold. I swallowed the lump in my throat. My gaze was fixed on my phone, still not looking up at Cand- I mean that girl.

“Here you go, Sir.” She said and moved away. I inhaled deeply and took a sip of my coffee and spit it out,

“What the hell is this?!” I asked agitated.

“Is something wrong, Sir?” She asked innocently.

“I asked for a cold coffee not for cold water. What the hell is this?”
