The Mafia Lord
Written by Princess Juliet
I watched Troy as he slept and caressed his face gently .
he married me despite the pain he was going through .
I took his hands into mine and squeezed it gently resting my head on the bed…
“What really happened to him? Is someone after his life”. I wondered
I felt his hands moved and raised my head to see him awake
“hubby”. I called smiling, you are finally awake
He smiled staring at me without saying anything
“What is wrong?”. I asked
“Nothing”. he replied,
“Are you sure?
“ how are you feeling?”. I asked standing from the chair and sitting beside him on the bed
“Better”. he replied, you are still on your wedding dress”. he observed,
“I could not bear to leave you alone”. I said and he smiled
He groaned in pain as he tried to sit up
“Please don’t stress yourself baby”. I pleaded
“I won’t , Just help me up”.he instructed
“but baby you are not fully recovered”. I queried
“Just do as I say please”
“Fine”. I muttered standing up to assist him
“Damn”. I heard him curse
“Does it still hurt that much?”. I asked
“No”. he shook his head. I smiled knowing he was lying.
“ I am sorry”. he apologised
“What are you sorry for?”, I asked confusedly
“I am sorry for ruining our wedding, sorry for making you cry,sorry for making you worry and also sorry for not giving you a better wedding.
I smiled staring at him
“Why is he so sweet?
“It is not your fault hubby”. I assured him. big wedding or not, what is more important is that we are there for each other.
“I will make it up to you”. he promised
“I will be waiting so get well soon for me , Tricia and our baby”
“Sure. he replied smiling
“What really happened to you?”. I asked staring at him curiously
“I had an accident”. he retorted. Can we talk about this later?
“Why can’t we talk about it now?”.
“Because I am still recovering”. he replied picking his phone for a table beside him
“What are you trying to do?”. I asked
“Make a call”. he replied
“but i am still ….. I stopped when the door suddenly opened and Andy walked in
“I am sorry for not coming earlier. he apologised, I had to go over to the accident scene to see if I could find any lead
“How did it go? Did you find anything?
“Just some strange bullet”. he replied bringing out a silver like bullet and handed it to Troy
“Really ?”. Troy asked studying the Bullet
“Have you seen its type before?”. Andy asked curiously
“Yes. Troy replied, it is called a dumdum bullet and it is the deadliest of all bullets
“Does that mean someone wants you dead?”. Andy asked
“he nodded and I gasped in shock
“Who could that be?”. I asked fidgeting , who were the men that shot at you?
“I couldn’t see their faces”.he replied, but they seem to know my movement
“How is that possible?”. Andy asked, it was a secret wedding within families. Did someone let it out?
“Did you by chance tell any of your friends?”. he asked facing me
“I didn’t”. I replied, I even scolded at Mary when she told her boyfriend . You can’t blame her she is crazily in love
“What boyfriend?”. Troy asked arching an eyebrow
“The love of her life”. I replied with an eye roll
“Who is he?”. he asked
“he is just a harmless boy who loves my sister , his name is Miguel and he is in the same department as you “. I said
“Do you know him?”. I asked but he just stared on without replying me…..
I stared at June not believing what I just heard
Miguel is the boyfriend of my wife sister
“Troy”. I heard her called but I was in no mood to answer her questions
“What is wrong with you Troy?”. She asked
“Put a call through your sister now”. I barked and she flinched in fear
“Troy “. She called again softly, please talk to me “. She pleaded as tears streak down her face
“Why does she like crying when she knows I don’t like seeing her tears?”
“Fine. I muttered, I want you to put a call through your sister and try find out where Miguel is
“Why?”. She asked
“I just need to ask him about something”. I replied
“Do you know him?”. She asked
“he is a course mate”. I replied , so please call her and place the call on speaker
She dialled Mary number who picked it up on the second ring
“Congratulations sis”. Mary said excitedly, mum told me you are now Mrs Daniels
“Thanks baby”. June said glancing at me, where are you?
“I am home, why did you ask?”
“I thought you will be with your Miguel”
“I can’t go to him now”. Mary said
“Miguel went over to his home “
I gave her signal to end the call and she did
“I have gotten what i wanted”. I retorted grunting in pain as i stood up
“Troy . You can’t do this please”. She pleaded,you are not strong
“I can take care of him”.Andy offered, you don’t need to stress yourself
“No. I replied, I will take care of the bastard myself.I grunted putting on my shirt
“Troy. he called
”hand me the gun”
“Troy. You will
“The gun”. I barked and he handed it to me immediately
“What are you trying to do?”. June asked , are you trying to kill Miguel
“No. I lied, just need to talk to him
“then why are you going with a gun?”. She asked
“Just stay here with Andy”. I instructed
“No, I will come with you
“Can’t you do as I say?”. I asked without looking at her
“I am your wife and won’t leave you all by yourself in your condition”.she replied
“She is right”. Andy chipped in, we can leave you to go on your own. You can’t even drive in your condition
“Fine”. I muttered …..
I held to my stomach as we walked out of the ward
I had to stop Miguel before he does anything stupid again
“Are you alright?”. Andy asked seeing the way I was walking
We got to the reception and the nurses on seat were surprised to see me leaving the hospital
“You can’t leave Mr Daniels”. one of them said running to hold me
“I will be back”. I replied freeing myself from her grip
“But the doctor….
“Tell him I will be back ….
We got to the parking lot and I opened the car door and got in
“Fuck this pain”. I cursed
“Are you alright?”. June asked sitting beside me
“Yeah”. I drawled
“Do you really have to do this?”. She asked , who is he to you?
“A friend”. I replied, a long lost friend ….
I read the message on my phone once again and signed
“It was a message from yakusa telling me to kill Troy
“Why does yakusa want him dead? Is he scared of Troy? I have never seen Yakusa this persistent like …
Troy and I grew up under yakusa watch and we were great friends, we used to club together, we even fucked the same girl not until I found out he killed my father .
He ignored me when I asked him about it
I always wondered why he killed my father and……. I stopped when I heard a car drive into the compound and I became alarmed
No one knows this place except…..Troy.
We parked in front of Miguel private mansion and I scoffed when I remembered the memories we shared together..
he was a great friend but he never trusted me..
We all got down from the car and I crossed my hands on June shoulders as we walked into the unfenced compound
“Are you sure this is the house?”. Andy asked leading the way
Sure”. I replied
he pushed the door opened and we all walked in
I scoffed when I saw the bastard seated on the sofa holding a gun
“I knew you will fight your way through Daniels”. he said smiling
“Sure. I replied, a looser like you can’t kill me
“What is going on here?”. I heard June asked ,
“Ask your husband”. Miguel replied with a scoff
“What is he talking about?”. She asked facing me
“Just stay out of this Please”.i pleaded, let me teach Yakusa dog a lesson
he tried picking his gun from the table but Andy immediately shot at his hand
“Arrrgy”. he groaned in pain
“When did you start using Mary?”. I asked limping closer to him
“I never used her”. he grunted, I really loved her
“Really?”. I asked with a scoff, how do you think she will feel when she finds out her lovely boyfriend made use of her
“She will understand when I explain everything to her”. he yelled ,she will understand when I tell her you killed my father
“Is that what yakusa told you?”. I barked ,is that what the bastard told you. You were supposed to be my friend
“What do you mean by that?”. he asked holding his injured hand
“Do you really want to know?”. I asked, then you Should ask yakusa who manipulated us all
“What are you trying to say? Did Yakusa lie to me?
I looked at him and scoffed , he looked so pathetic
“Please tell me Troy”. he yelled
“Fine, i will tell you since you want to know. Yakusa killed your father because he thought your father was a weakling
“Liar. he yelled , yakusa will never do that
“That is because you really don’t know who he is “.I replied pulling out my gun
“Please don’t”. I heard June screamed, please don’t kill him
“Troy please don’t kill me”. Miguel pleaded standing up
I shot at his legs and he fell back to the sofa groaning in pain
“Please forgive me “. he pleaded , you never told me all this when I asked you
“That was because you accused me before I could tell you the truth “
“Please don’t kill me” . he pleaded
“Really?”. I asked, you aided yakusa and you both tried to kill me
“Please Troy”. he pleaded bleeding profusely from the leg wound
“I don’t believe in forgiveness”.I said pointing my gun at him
“Troy please don’t”. June pleaded , please don’t
I ignored her pleas and was about shooting at Miguel when I felt her hands around me
“Please Troy don’t shoot.she pleaded crying
“He tried to kill me”. I said turning to look at her
“You promised to change so please don’t kill him for the sake of Tricia and our unborn child”. She pleaded and immediately my heart melted
I sighed and put the gun back into my pocket …..
“Troy . Andy called in surprise, should l……
“Let him live”………..
Yakusa don spoil a lot
