“But darling pl-” Regina pleaded as tears rolled down her face.
“No, no, don't you darling, please me!” Matías interrupted as his fist came slamming down against the desk,” I warned you, but do you ever listen? NO!”
“I told you not to SPEAK, COMMUNICATE, INTERACT with him or anyone consigning him, but you don't listen.”
“I-I am sick and tired of your selfishness that has caused us nothing but fear and pain. Is this how you want your 9-year-old daughter to grow up? Is this how you want her to live her young life?”
“You think I don't know that?” he huffed as he sat back on his chair” I do this for her, for you.”
“Sure,” she muttered while rolling her eyes.” Do you know what you have just started; Berlusconi has been onto us, and you have just done an amazing job in helping them.”
“All I wanted to do was protect our Navaeh, which is more than I can say for you,” she replied, blatantly ignoring his statement.
“SHUT UP!” he growled as he stood up, leaning over Regina, giving her a deathly stare that sent shivers down “you know what, get out.”
“What?” she couldn't believe what she just heard.
“GET OUT OF MY FRICKING OFFICE BEFORE I DO SOMETHING TO YOU THAT BOTH OF US WILL REGRET!” his eyes bulge out of their sockets as he clenched his fist in burning fury.
“How dare yo-”
Before she could even finish her sentence he landed her a huge slap across her face making her stumble onto the floor as she shrieked in pain.
“Now leave” he mumbled as he adjusted his blazer and sat back down.
Regina obeyed, got up onto her feet and left Matías alone in his own thoughts reviewing what just happened. He felt bad for slapping his wife but at the same time he was too proud to even bother apologizing.
“Meh, she will get over it,” he thought as he continued his paper work.
"Please, I beg of you, spare us; I'll find a way to pay back what my husband owes you, please" Regina begged as she took her seat.
"I didn't say you could sit down," stated a voice from the other end of the room
"I decided to make myself welcome anyways" she sniggered as she started fiddling with her purse's golden chain.
"Does your husband even know your here?"
"Mr. Berlusconi, I do-"
"Thought as much, trouble in paradise?" Mika interrupted
"What goes on in my life is none of your business."
"It clearly is, because if it wasn't, you wouldn't be here right now would you?" he walked up to Regina and placed his big warming hand across her face, and gave her a peck on the cheek.
"and just what exactly do you think your doing" Regina questioned hesitantly shifting away from Mika
"oh i'm sorry princess" he apologised with no sincerity at all as he brought his lips towards her ear and whispered "but lets not pretend your not bubbling on the inside with joy ; head over heals that i'm giving you the slightest bit of attention."
She rolled her eyes and took out her phone to check the time, she had to pick up Nevaeh from school and she wasn't going to waste her time with this dickhead thinking he can flirt with a married woman. Especially one who is married to the leader of a rival Mafia gang. She wasn't surprised, not at all. Mika has always been like this ,since they were little and he never thought about taking anything serious at all. Everything was a joke with him.
Even his grades and no matter how many times his parents bugged him about it he never seemed to care and she guessed that's why they were so close. They kind of balanced each other out, she helped him with his grades that were slacking incredibly and he helped her enjoy herself and not lock herself away from people all the time even though she got in trouble some times.
"Look Mika I do not have time for these silly jokes, I have places to be" she glances at him and looks straight back down to her phone trying to avoid eye contact.
"Oh Regina ,uptight as always, didn't your husband threaten you about coming back to me?" He questioned as he analyzed every movement Regina made, "I see he left a marking scar across your face, what did he do to you now?"
She sat there stone cold remembering the exact moment over and over again.
"No, no, don't you darling, please me!" Matías interrupted as his fist came slamming down against the desk," I warned you, but do you ever listen? NO!"
"GET OUT OF MY FRICKIN OFFICE BEFORE I DO SOMETHING TO YOU THAT BOTH OF US WILL REGRET!"
she remembered the slap. The sting that overpowered the right side of her face. It was so harsh that it left a burning bruise on her face. Staining her beautiful brown chocolate elegance. It hurt every time she thought of it because this wasn't the first time Martias has laid a hand on her and the funny thing is Mika knew that.
"So are you not going to tell me what happened?" He brought a chair next to her and sat down, placed his hand on her thigh and nudged her out of her day dream encouraging her to to tell him what happened.
"Well he was already pissed at me for coming to speak to you," she sniffed wiping a tear from her bruised face,"so we had a little argument an-"
"A little?"your face doesn't exactly point out 'a little'" he interrupted
"Ok well, maybe not a little" she laughs and continues
"he started shouting at, me and threatening me"
"GET OUT OF MY FRICKIN OFFICE BEFORE I DO SOMETHING TO YOU THAT BOTH OF US WILL REGRET!"
"And that's when he hit me" tears staring streaming down her face and she started hyperventilating.
"shh shh, its ok, let it all out," he wrapped an arm around her pulling her head to his chest
This time she didn't flinch at all
" And don't worry, i will make sure nothing happens to you or Nevaeh .
Just at that moment Regina jumped at the sudden noise of a door slam open.
She turned to see a man in black jeans with a black v-neck top. She couldn't help but stare at his bulging triceps ready to pounce. His v-neck top clenched around his well shredded abs. Oh how she loved abs. Her daydream was soon interrupted by his deep shallow voice punching through her very soul
"Is she even listening to me" Killian asked
She quickly snaps back into reality.
Yes, yes i am,"she replied
"Good, now that your are done drooling over me,lets get straight to business"
"I wasn't droolin-"
"Don't lie" added Mika as the two brothers exchanged laughs
"keep quiet!" she rolled her eyes at the fact that they were both still laughing. However she could sense some kind of off vibe with Killian. She didn't know what is was but she definitely knew that he didn't like her.
"So, what makes you think i will get over the fact that your dick head of a husband decided to steal from me" he started to rock back and forth on his chair.
"I never said you should get over it, just give me time, i-"
"That's the thing Regina! I don't have time, if you don't have the money now, i'm sorry but your journey here is useless"
"time is all I need"she starts to quiver
Regina opened her eyes to an empty room. The stench was unbearable. The smell of dampness and blood drifted into her nostrils and choked her.
Sweat droplets dripped down her face, and due to the irritation that it was giving her, she tried to move her hand to wipe her drenched forehead clean but came to realize that she was tied up as well as gagged.
Fear overcame her, and she tried to think of a way to escape this sickening place. Wherever she was.
Her eyes came across broken glass just below her feet. She stretched out for it even though the rope gashed against her skin causing a rash. She just about managed to reach for the glass piece and grabbed it.
She started ripping away at the rope tied around her wrists with full force, but nothing seemed to work. Her fist clenched in anger, her mind completely oblivious to the fact and forgetting that she had glass in her hand.
As she clenched the flesh-tearing glass red ink began to gush out staining everything that was obstructing its way as she screamed in agony and pain.
she soon heard footsteps echoing down the corridor. Someone was coming. Her heart started to palpitate as her body began to quiver as the footsteps became louder and louder.
"Hello Regina," greeted a voice from a distance.
There was no telling who this could be. All she could see was the silhouette of a guy wearing a knee length coat. He used a voice changer mic so there was no telling who exactly it was.
"I have been waiting a long long time for this moment, and the joy that fills me right now, knowing that I
will be able to fulfill what I have so longed to do is amazing."
"I-I-I d-don't u-understand"
"of course you won't darling, but it's ok ill make it quick and less painful"
"What y-your going to kill me" she tried to say but all that came out was a "hmmmhmmhm "at that exact moment Regina started squirming, wiggling, and trying everything she thought would help her get loose, trying to force her mouth out of the gag.
"oh no darling no one can hear you... no matter how loud you cry and shriek. Also, you have probably guessed by now, it's impossible to get out of those ropes so you might as well give in"
The guy then started to chuckle as he brought out something from his pocket but it was too dark and Regina couldn't exactly make out what it was until,
"Regina, it's time you say your goodbyes."
Just as her mouth was able to come through
Her voice was cut off by a loud bang, as blood started to ooze down the chair.
