Chapter 14

Two days later, Ethan and Jennifer were at his club as she was looking at it to see what changes could be done and Ethan told her what he would like to see.

“Boss?” Seth asked.

“Hey guys, baby, this is Seth Carter and Alex Thomas, they work for me here at the club, Alex is the bouncer and Seth is the bartender and manager,” Ethan said.

“Hello,” Jennifer said.

“Nice to meet you, Mrs. Ross,” Alex said.

“You guys call me Jennifer,” Jennifer said.

“Or we can call you boss lady,” Seth said.

“Huh,” Jennifer said.

“Did I mention that you are part owner of the club now because we are married?” Ethan said.

“You forgot that detail,” Jennifer said.

“Sorry baby,” Ethan said.

“I like the look of this place, I would hate to change it,” Jennifer said.

“Baby you sure?” Ethan asked.

“Yeah, babe, it’s perfect as is,” Jennifer said.

“Okay baby,” Ethan said.

“Ethan!” Paul said.

“Paul, what are you doing here?” Ethan asked.

“Just came to tell you what’s going on,” Paul said.

“What’s going on?” Ethan asked.

“I got a call from someone who wants you dead, he wanted to pay me big bucks to take you out,” Paul said.

“Who?” Ethan asked.

“Her father,” Paul said.

“Oh god,” Jennifer said.

“Seth, Alex, go pick him up now,” Ethan said.

“Got it boss,” Seth said.

“Yes boss,” Alex said. They left. Jennifer sank down in a chair. Ethan knelt down in front of her.

“Baby,” I can’t believe he would go this far,” Jennifer said.

“I told him I would do it,” Paul said.

“What,” Jennifer said.

“But I wouldn’t actually do it, because Ethan and I are allies and best friends, your father didn’t know that,” Paul said.

“So you aren’t going to do it,” Jennifer said.

“Your father doesn’t know that there is a treaty with all the mafia families in Miami and in New York,” Paul said.

“I have an idea,” Jennifer said. She told him her idea and he nodded and made some calls. She called her mom and told her everything.

“I can’t believe he did this,” Amber said.

“Mom, you weren’t a part of it, were you?” Jennifer asked.

“Honey of course not, I supported your choice and marriage, you are my daughter, you and James are everything to me,” Amber said.

“What happened to my father, he was never like this,” Jennifer said.

“I don’t know, honey, but I am done with him, I just saw two guys take him out the door,” Amber said.

“That’s Alex and Seth, they work for Ethan and me,” Jennifer said.

“Honey, where are you now?” Amber asked.

“At the club,” Jennifer said.

“Send me the address, I want to be there,” Amber said.

“Mom,” Jennifer said.

“Don’t argue with me, honey,” Amber said.

“Okay, Mom,” Jennifer said. She sent the address to her and they hung up. She called James and told him what was going on and he headed down. The doors opened and they dragged her father in. They stopped in front of her. He looked at her. She looked at him with no expression.
