Chapter Thirty-Two: His Second

Ren slowly opened his eyes and closed them quickly. The bright light in his face hurt, hell, his face hurt. What was going on? The last thing he remembered was walking through town on a mission. Then a van pulled up beside him. His eyes popped open. He grunted at the bright light but kept his eyes open this time.

“Sorry, my men were so rough on you.”

He knows that voice. He watched as Luigi Trevisani moved to stand in front of him. Ren wanted to jump at the man and strangle him, but he kept his cool.

“What the hell, Trev?”

Ren grunted as the air was punched out of his lungs. He snarled at Angelo as the man stood up away from him.

“You will address Mr. Trevisani as such,” Angelo said with a snarl.

“Easy, Angelo,” Trevisani said as he laid his hand on the man’s shoulder and pulled him back. “Ren has been with us long enough and done enough for us.”

Angelo grunted as he moved away from Ren, but didn’t go too far.

“Now,” Trevisani said as he pulled a chair up in front of Ren and turned it to straddled it. “About that wedding, I was promised.”

Ren sighed. He knew this was coming. It has been almost a month since the wedding that was supposed to be his and Aurora’s. Even if this man hadn’t known, it wasn’t the real Aurora Romano.

“Dom screwed me,” Ren bit out.

Trevisani chuckled, “so, Angelo told me.”

“Then, why am I here?” Ren asked as he eyed the older man.

Trevisani sighed, “my people are worried about where your loyalties lie.”

“They lie with you,” Ren said as he straightened.

Angelo snorted from behind Trevisani. Trev raised a hand to stop Angelo from speaking.

“I have one question, and if you lie to me, I will have Angelo shoot you in the thigh. If you lie again, he will put a bullet in your dick.”

“What’s the question?” Ren asked as he eyed the two men.

“Where is Aurora Romano?”

Ren sighed, “I don’t know. I found out the week after I was screwed out of a wedding, that the woman I had wooed, was indeed not Aurora Romano, but a decoy.”

Trev shook his head when Angelo went to shoot Ren. “I believe you.”

“Boss,” Angelo growled.

“You said it yourself Angelo, Ren looked as shocked as a man who just discovered his dick had been cut off, by some bitch, in the middle of the night.”

Ren chocked on the image.

“Now, another question.”

Ren should have known there wasn’t just one question.

“What happened to my men?”

Ren forced himself to keep his poker face as he looked straight into Trevisani’s eyes. “I was told that they were killed before they could kill Aurora.”

Trevisani nodded. “And the girl?”

“I told you, I don’t know. I was told that Dom’s daughter was that other girl. But after the girl was killed during the mugging…”

“You mean the mugging Dom’s daughter had gotten injured in?” Trevisani asked.

Ren nodded, “there were three girls there that night. Two were badly cut up, and one was killed.”

“Ah yes, the girl you had kissed at the wedding,” Trevisani said with a nod.

Ren nodded, “Nicola Gallo’s little sister. I knew it would piss him off after the fool they made of me, so I kissed her.”

“Pretty girl,” Angelo said from behind Trevisani.

“I didn’t know Nicola had a little sister,” Trevisani said as he eyed Ren.

“Neither did I. He discovered her a few years ago and has kept her hidden, afraid someone who would come after him would go for her first.” Ren needed to tell Nicola and Sofia about that little tidbit, he was making up too much crap to keep this man from discovering that Jili is actually Aurora.

“But from what I was told, Nicola got to name his little sister. Jili, isn’t it?” Trevisani said with a smile.

Ren swallowed past his dry thought. He’d forgotten Aurora had said something to that effect. Without letting the two men see anything amiss, Ren looked straight into Trevisani’s eyes and said, with his heart pounding in his ears.

“Her name is Jilian, we call her Jili, and she said that to Andre in hopes the threat of her having a brother would get him to back off. But it did not, so Nicola had to intervene.”

“Andre is a cad,” Angelo said with a nod without taking his eyes off Ren.

Trevisani sighed, “I guess you keep your dick and berries for another day,” he said as he stood and shoved the chair under the table. “Let him go,” he said to Angelo as he pointed to Ren.

Angelo placed his gun behind his back, then moved over to Ren and untied the rope. Ren rubbed his wrists as he stood from the chair.

“Give him his gun,” Trevisani said as he turned back to Ren, “he will need it.”

Ren stared at Trevisani as Angelo slammed his gun into his hand.

“This weekend, you will kill Domenico Romano.”

Ren blinked. He thought Trevisani wanted to take care of that himself.

Trevisani moved over to Ren and got into his face. “I want Domenico dead. I can’t get his daughter, so I will go for the next best thing.”

Ren swallowed, “me.” he whispered.

Trevisani laughed. “What better way to kill my enemy than with the one person he trusts above everyone else? The one person he trained to be just like him. The one person who is like a son to him. His Second in Command.”


Ren grumbled as he paced the hall outside Dom’s office door. Everything was getting way out of hand. He rubbed his sore jaw. Whoever had been in the van had roughed him up pretty good. Luckily it wasn’t so bad, at least his eyes weren’t swollen shut.

“Ren,” Dom said with shock as he opened his office door to find his second standing in the hall, battered.

“We need to talk,” Ren said as he pushed past Dom into the office.

“Do come in,” Dom said with a sigh as he turned and closed the door. “What happened to you?”

Ren rubbed his jaw again. “Trevisani’s men picked me up and roughed me up a bit before they delivered me to the boss.”

“I see. Do they suspect anything?”

Ren shook his head. “I would be dead or dick-less if they did.”

Dom didn’t ask about the second comment but studied his second. “What is it, Son?”

Ren looked at the only man who has ever been like a father to him. “Trevisani has ordered me to kill you this weekend.”

“I see,” Dom said as he moved to sit behind his desk.

“Dom, I kept Aurora a secret, but now they want to use me against you, instead of her.”

Dom nodded, “keep Aurora out of it as much as you can.”

“But sir..."

Dom shook his head. “No arguments. We will figure everything else out; just keep my daughter out of it,” he growled.

“Yes, sir,” Ren said with a nod.

Dom took in a deep breath then let it out. “Tell me everything.”



Ren turned when he exited Dom’s office and grinned as he caught Aurora in his arms. “How was your appointment?” He asked as they started walking down the hall towards his office.

Aurora grinned up at him. “Everything went great. Took a bit longer then they’d expected, but they’re all out, and I was given a clean bill of health, and..."

He looked down at her. “And what?”

“Nothing,” she said with a shake of her head as she smiled up at him, “another time.”

He smiled as they stopped outside his office door. “Want to come in?” He asked, his voice husky and seductive.

She grinned. “Do you really have to ask? Besides, I want you to see them,” she said as she pushed his door open and entered his office.

“See what?” He asked as he closed and locked the door behind him.

She was already stripping, and his jaw dropped when she bent over in front of him. Her bare ass in the air, he knows she could have sat on the couch to take off her shoes or kicked them across the room like he does. But she loves his reaction when she bares her ass to him. He saw the little minx’s face between her legs grinning at him, and he couldn’t help but smile back. He moved towards her and bent over towards her ass. She moaned when his teeth sank into one ass cheek then the other.

“Ren,” she breathed.

“Not right now, I’m not,” he said with a sexy growl as his hands ran up her inner thighs and stopped at the juncture between them. “Say it,” he hissed as he nipped her ass again. “Say it, Aurora. Who am I?”

“Lorenzo!” She hollered when he dipped his tong between her ass cheeks.

He grinned, then slipped his fingers into her wetness. “God, you’re wet,” he whispered as he found her clit and played with it.

“Lorenzo,” she whimpered.

“I know, baby, I feel it too,” he whispered, then stood.

Aurora moaned as his fingers continued to play in her wetness, making her even wetter. When one of his fingers slipped into her ass, she almost fell forward. He laughed as he let go of her and grabbed her hips.

“You are such a naughty tease,” he said as he let go of her hips for a split second, then grabbed hold of them again and entered her before she even realized what was going on.

“Lorenzo!” She screamed when he slammed into her, her head still between her legs.

“God, keep calling out my name like that,” he grunted as he slammed into her again.

“Oh God, Lorenzo. Yes!” She screamed.

Ren closed his eyes as he held onto her hips and continued to slam into her. Whatever it was, she had come to his office to show him was lost on them as they enjoyed the sensations erupting from their bodies.

“Please!” Aurora begged.

He grinned, then slapped her ass. “Please, what?”

She moaned, “well, that was one of them,” she said as she wiggled her ass against him.

He laughed, then slapped her ass again and slammed into her harder and deeper.

“Ohmigod, I’m going to cum!” She cried out.

“Yes, do cum for me,” he said with a groan as he slapped her ass again.

“Lorenzo!” She cried out as her body convulsed.

Ren felt her tighten around him and couldn’t hold back any longer. He slammed into her a few more times, as her slick pussy continued to milk him, then he came so hard, bright lights flashed before his eyes. Ren almost fell over her but caught himself. He held onto her hips as he shoved himself so deep inside her, she came all over his cock again.

“Aurora,” he breathed as he leaned over her and kissed her back.

“Well, that wasn’t exactly what I had come here for,” she said out of breath as she looked up at him from between her legs. All she could see was his balls and his cock still in her wet pussy, and she moaned. It looked so good she wished she could lick him. If she was only that flexible.

“You must be dizzy, all that blood rushing to your head,” he said as he leaned to his left and looked down at her.

She grinned up at him. “Not yet,” she whispered.

He grunted, then pulled out of her and situated himself back into his pants.

Aurora pouted at him then slowly stood, her back still to him.

“What did you want to show me that involved you stripping?” He asked as he watched her rigid back.

Aurora took a deep breath then turned to face him.

Ren paused for a moment, his eyes roaming over her body. Her arms were down at her sides, and her head was held high, her nose slightly in the air. He smiled at that pose, then his eyes roamed over her. It was the first time, other than when she’d ripped her bandages off, that he has seen her fully naked. The scars were still red, but they looked much better. And she was just as beautiful as the first time he had seen her, maybe even more so.

Aurora watched Ren as he looked her over and felt her heart skip a beat when his eyes met hers.

“Beautiful,” he breathed, then pulled her into his arms and kissed her until neither of them could breathe.


Ren looked at Dom from his seat across from his boss’s desk. Now is as good a time as any to say to him what he needs to say; before he has to kill him Saturday. He already has what he needs, all he needs is to talk to Dom. Why were his hands sweating?

“You wanted to see me about something?” Dom asked as he gave his full attention to Ren.

“I wanted to ask…tell you something.”

“Well, what is it boy, ask or tell me?”

Ren swallowed against his dry throat and almost choked. He’d kill for a glass of water- or Chardonnay. He thought as he watched Dom pour them each a small glass of it.

“Thank you,” Ren chocked as he took the glass from Dom and took a sip.

“Better?” Dom asked as he watched Ren. He had an idea of what the boy wanted to talk about, and all he could think was. About damn time.

“Sir,” Ren said, then cleared his thought when his voice almost sounded like a mouse.

Dom laughed to himself as he forced his face to look serious, even though all he wanted to do was grin at the boy.

“Go on,” Dom said with a nod of his head.

Ren took a deep breath and another sip of his drink, then tried again. “Sir.” His voice sounded normal at that time, and so he continued. “There is something I would like to tell you. I know you will probably hate me and want to kill me, but..."

How horrible do his people think he is?
