Being part of the Vicci Crime Family isn’t my birthright, but it runs through my blood just as deep as if it were. My destiny was set the minute Angelo Rizzuto married my mother, despite my parents trying to shelter me from it all.
La Cosa Nostra. Before God or family. The vow my father took was the same vow that destroyed everything I knew. And it was now the pledge I honored alongside him.
“With My Life”—words spoken from the deepest depths of my soul, a promise I made to Giovanna Panzica the moment our paths crossed. But I quickly learned that the repercussions that follow one wrong decision can last a lifetime.
My story became a tale of how a vendetta can shape a good boy into an evil man. I don’t know if there’s hope for my soul or if I’m destined to live a life of crime, but I do hope I can keep my promise to Giovanna no matter how my final chapter ends.
Thirteen years ago, I sat at this table with Angelo, drinking a glass of milk and eating chocolate chip cookies. I remember it as if it happened yesterday.
“Angelwhoa, those bad men hurt you. I was scared.”
He took a bite of the cookie he had just dunked in his glass before answering me. “I’m going to be just fine, Peanut. Nothing but a scratch.”
Even as a kid, I knew it was much more than a scratch, but Angelo was my superhero, and as long as he was around, I’d always be safe.
“They scared me. You won’t let anything happen to me, right?”
“As long as I’m here, little man, you’ll always be safe. I promise. With my life.”
He raised his fingers to his lips, kissed them, and then crossed his heart. “God as my witness, I’d die before any harm came to you or anyone you love.”
I crawled out of my chair, taking my glass with me, and moved towards the other side of the table. My cup wobbled as I placed it on the table and climbed into the big guy’s lap.
“I wuv you, Angelwoa. Forever.”
“Back at ya, Ragazzino.”
Four years later, once again, we sat at the table in our same seats celebrating my eighth birthday. That’s the day Angelo told me he’d like to marry my mom and wanted my permission.
“You’ll really be my dad if I say yes?”
His deep throaty chuckle filled the kitchen. “I’ll be your dad if your mom says yes. But first, you have to tell me it’s okay to ask her.”
“Mom loves you. She’ll say yes, so you have my permission.”
He ruffled the hair on the top of my head. “I sure hope you’re right, buddy.”
