Tony Aiello walked into the front doors of the Marino mansion. Michael, her assistant, showed him to the study.
Tony helped himself to a double-shot of her fifty-year-old scotch. He savored the taste of the tawny liquor as he set up the computer, and prepped the show. He shook his head and wondered which part of the bad news would piss her off the most.
Miss Aida had put out a hit on Paulie’s father years before. No one would cop to it, especially not the Old Woman, but Tony knew a proper takedown when he saw it. She hadn’t called him. She’d hired out to Sicily. There’s certain shit you don’t do when it comes to Miss Aida
Miss Aida swooped in behind him, and whispered in his ear. “I didn’t expect you until eight.”
Tony smiled his most angelic smile, and braced himself. She dressed in a dark navy suit but the first thing Tony noticed was her pearls. Miss Aida always wore the pearls. She toyed with them.
She slithered around him and embraced Tony in a hug that meant business, and whispered in his ear. “Where the hell is my car?”
He nodded. “It’s on the way. I got something here that took precedence over the car, and the girl.”
“I thought my instructions were clear,” she purred into his ear.
“Loud and clear, Miss Aida. Something worse came up.”
When she pulled back anger flared in sapphire eyes. Before she could get her words out he held up a hand, led her over to the settee’, and opened the computer.
Pushed play.
He walked over and poured another shot of scotch, one for himself, and one for her.
Handed her the glass.
Watched her expressions change as the video flashed before her eyes.
Tony had watched the video four times himself before he changed his plans and took the flight. The last third made him avert his eyes, drain his scotch. Fucking lunatic.
He ground his teeth and shook his head, convinced his hunch was dead-on. He watched Miss Aida’s face take in the violence. She had never seen the fourteen-minute horror show. The shock she wore testified. As mean as she was, she’d always possessed more class than that.
Tony’s heart broke for Miss Aida. Paulie had assumed his father’s dark legacy, a stone-cold freak-of-nature loose on the streets of New York City. Her glass of fifty-year old scotch fell from her hands to the fine Italian marble floor and shattered into a million razor-sharp, jagged pieces.


Meg’s Heartwarming Hot Apple Cider
