I sat on the balcony sipping my coffee, looking over the city. It's been just a little over a year since I've been gone. I'm not the same man I use to be. I never really showed any true emotions anymore. I always felt dead inside and the only thing ever on my mind is keeping my sugar safe. I heard the slider open up behind me as Sierra slipped her way next to me. She stood beside me in nothing but a silk robe. My lip curled up is disgust. I kept my eyes on the city. She wrapped her arm around me and I just stayed still. "Come on Dante, don't be so cold. Why don't you come inside and let us warm you up." She said. I just turned and look at her. No expression on my face. She just snickered at me and went back inside. I finished up my coffee and headed back inside. I looked at the bed and both Sierra and Allissa were asleep. I made my way out of the room and walked downstairs. I met Andre in the kitchen
"Morning man, are you ready for today's task?" He asked me. I just nodded at him and grabbed my gun. I followed Andre out of the house and we slipped into the van and headed towards the docks.
We pulled up to the docks and I saw the men waiting for us. Andre and I got out of the car. I had my gun tucked into the back of my pants as we walked up to the men. "Good morning gentleman, my name is Dante. I assume you have what we are here for?" I asked him. One of the men stepped forward.
"We have what you want. Do you have what we want?" I handed him the briefcase.
"You'll be happy to know that all the money is there." I said. The man opened the case and asked one of his men to count it. After they were satisfied, he walked back over to me and handed me a key.
"You'll find the goods in container forty three." We nodded at the men and headed to the containers. The men followed us. I handed Andre the key and he opened the container.
As I knew it would be all the drugs were there. "Thank you gentleman, it was a pleasure doing business with you." I said, as I pulled my gun out and shot all of them. Still no emotion played on my face, as I looked at the men laying dead on the ground. I looked over at Andre as I locked the container back up. "Get the cleaning crew out here to clean this up and have the drugs transferred." I said. I grabbed the briefcase and headed back to the van.
After things were secure, Andre drove us back to the main house. I got out of the car and made my was inside to fine Boswell. I knocked on his door and heard him tell me to come inside. Boswell looked up from his desk at me. "Aw Dante, great job tonight. You know I'm really happy that Allissa and Sierra brought you to me. Your beginning to become my best man." I nodded at him and sat the briefcase down on his desk. I then took a step back. Boswell eyed me for a moment. "You know Dante, I would think a man like you would smile more often. Your making a ton of money working with me and you get to go to bed every night with two beautiful women. You life is great. You should learn to appreciate it more." He said to me. I just stood there and tipped my head at him.
I walked out of Boswell's house and walked over to my car. I got in and started it up. I looked over at the mansion and juts shook my head. I took a deep breath and headed back to my home. I pulled in hoping the girls were gone. Maybe shopping or out to dinner without me. I was making a ton of money and Allissa and Sierra were enjoying spending it. I didn't give a shit as long as it kept them away from me for as long as possible, but as my luck would have it, they both were home. I took a deep breath and headed inside. I dropped my keys and my gun on the kitchen counter and headed up to my room for a shower. Both girls were sitting at the table running their annoying mouths as I walked by. Allissa got up and followed me.
I walked into the room and sat on the bed. I started to remove my shoes and Allissa walked inside. "How did things go today?" She asked me.
"Fine, they always do." I said. I stood up and removed my suit. Allissa stood there and watched me. I looked over at her as her eyes were on my body. I took a deep breath.
"Would you like some company?" She asked me. I just stood there looking at her. I raised my eyebrow at her. "Come on Dante, it's been so long since we touched you." I just shook my head and headed into the bathroom. Of course she followed me. "You know it's been over a fucking year. She has moved on, why haven't you!" She yelled in my face. I turned in a flash and slammed her against the wall. I placed my hand around her neck.
"I'm warning you Allissa, don't fucking piss me off." I said spitting on her face as I spoke.
"Go ahead Dante, do it, because the minute you do they will kill Beth and her whole family." She spit out.
I regained control of myself and pushed away from her. "Get the fuck out Allissa." I hissed out. She just looked at me for a moment and then left the bathroom, slamming the door behind her. I turned around and slammed my fist into the wall till I felt the skin open and blood fall down my hands. I laid in my bed with the window open in the dark. I took a puff off my cigarette, watching the moon. I felt one of them move their bodies to get comfortable. I haven't slept alone since I've been here. I closed my eyes and thought of Beth.
I tried to go to Jacob's side when they tossed him out of the van to the ground, but I was immediately knocked out. The next thing I knew I woke up tied to a chair in a dark room. The only light was above my head. I must have been drugged because I still felt groggy and had a hard time focusing. "Hello." I yelled out, but I heard nothing. That's when what sounded like a door opening came from behind me.
"Hello Dante, it's about time you woke up. I was starting to worry about you." Allissa stepped in front of me. She was all dolled up in a tight short red dress and bright red lipstick. Her blond hair was pulled up in a fancy bun. She stood in front of me. "What do you think?" She asked me as she did a little turn.
"I think you look...absolutely crazy." I spit out. She looked at me for a moment and slapped me hard across the face. Then she slammed her lips to mine. I tried to move away from her, but all I accomplished was smearing red lipstick all over both of us. Then I heard another voice.
"Careful love, you don't want to mess him up to much." That's when Sierra made her way into view. She stood next to Allissa and the both started to kiss in front of me. I turned my head in disgust.
"So here's the deal Dante. As long as you cooperate with Sierra and myself, your Beth and her family will stay safe." Allissa said. I just looked up at her.
"What does that even mean Allissa?" I asked her.
"It means you stay with us and Beth stays safe. I've got people watching her Dante and her family. If you do anything to make me think your going to run or hurt Sierra or myself, I'll have her and her family killed instantly. Just so you know I'm not playing around." She said as she pulled her phone out. She flipped through a few things and showed me a picture of Beth sleeping with a man holding a gun to her. My heart started to race. The door opened again and Allissa and Sierra left the room. Two large men wearing ski mask came in. Needless to say, they beat my ass pretty good and left me tied to the chair.
I don't know how long it was that I was left there, but I was removed and put into a car. They had my head covered and I had no idea where I was going. Once I was placed back down in a chair, the blindfold was removed from my eyes. I was sitting on a plane. Allissa and Sierra were sitting next to me. Allissa had a gun sitting in her lap. If I really wanted to I could take the gun and blow her and Sierra's heads off right now, but I remembered what she told me about Beth. So, I just stayed still. "So tell me Dante, how are we going to do this?" She asked me.
"I'll do whatever you want Allissa, just leave Beth and her family alone." I said. She smiled up at me.
"That's a good boy." She said.
"Why are you doing this?" I asked her. "What do you want from me?" She looked down.
"I just want you. You'll see in time that I'm the better choice." That's when Sierra chimed in.
"Us, you'll see that we are the better choice." Sierra said and Allissa smiled at her. I just took a deep breath.
"So, your doing all of this just to have me?" I said. Both of them nodded at me. I just shook my head. "I'm not worth this." I said.
"I happen to know that you are." Sierra said. "I know what kind of man you are when you love someone." I just shook my head again. Both of them were fucking nuts. They both just watched me as I felt the plane take off.
"Where are we going?" I asked.
"Don't worry about that right now." Allissa said. As soon as we were in the air. Allissa stood up and motioned for me to follow her. I did as she wanted me to. I followed her to the back of the plane into a small cabin room. She sat me down on the bed and got a wet wash cloth ans started to clean up my face. "I'm sorry I had them mess you up like this, but I needed to prove my point." She said. "I know your upset right now, but trust me when I say. Once you have had some time away from her and your with me, you'll realize you made the wrong choice and you'll want to be with me." I just sat there emotionless and let her keep rambling on.
