Chapter 24

The next day, Jennifer was sitting in the office at the club with Ethan.

“Now who is coming here today?” Jennifer asked.

“New mafia guy, he just moved to town and met with all the other leaders and I’m last on the list before we all met to decide if we should add him to the treaty,” Ethan said.

“What if you don’t add him?” Jennifer asked.

“We will have to risk a war to get him out of town,” Ethan said.

“Oh, could it come to that?” Jennifer asked.

“I don’t know baby, Daniel met with him yesterday as did Paul and they seem to think he’s legit,” Ethan said.

“So they think he’s worthy of being added,” Jennifer said.

“They seemed impressed with him, and it’s hard to impress those two, I’ve known them since we were kids,” Ethan said.

“Boss, he’s here,” Alex said.

“Thanks man,” Ethan said. Seth brought him in and he sat down.

“Matthew, hello, I’m Ethan Ross, this is my wife, Jennifer,” Ethan said.

“Hello,” Matthew said.

“Hello,” Jennifer said.

“How you liking Miami so far?” Ethan asked.

“It’s been good so far, and now I’m liking it even more,” Matthew said. Jennifer noticed him looking her over.

“Are you checking out my wife?” Ethan asked.

“It’s hard not to, you’ve got a beautiful wife,” Matthew said.

“Yes I do, we are expecting our first child, we found out yesterday,” Ethan said.

“Congratulations,” Matthew said.

“Thanks,” Jennifer said.

“What does your family specialize in?” Ethan asked.

“In LA, we supplied guns and vests to LAPD, my brother took over out there so we could expand our business,” Matthew said.

“Well, we supply guns, vests, gloves, and ammo to Miami PD, but it’s hard to keep up at times, we could use more suppliers in the city,” Ethan said.

“Well now it will happen,” Matthew said.

“There is a meeting tomorrow to see about adding you to the treaty here in Miami,” Ethan said.

“Do I need to be there?” Matthew asked.

“Well yes, but not at the beginning,” Ethan said.

“Then I shall see you tomorrow then,” Matthew said.

“Okay then thanks for coming by,” Ethan said. Matthew shook his hand and smiled at Jennifer and went out the door.

“Baby what’s wrong?” Ethan asked.

“I didn’t like the way he looked at me,” Jennifer said.

“I know baby, me either,” Ethan said.

“You saw it too,” Jennifer said.

“Of course I did,” Ethan said.

“I’m not sure about being around him,” Jennifer said.

“Baby I won’t let anything happen to you,” Ethan said.

“I know, I doubt anything will,” Jennifer said.

“I’ll see what happens tomorrow,” Ethan said.

“I don’t need to go, right?” Jennifer asked.

“No baby,” Ethan said.

“Okay, I’ll be at work then,” Jennifer said.

“How you feeling today baby?” Ethan asked.

“I’m okay for now, I dread morning sickness,” Jennifer said.

“I hope it ain’t too bad for you,” Ethan said.

“I hope not either,” Jennifer said. He kissed her softly as he pulled her in his lap and held her close to him.
