"And you're sure it wasn't makeup."

"No, sir. It moved when he talked, it was... I could... I could see inside bits of his mouth—"

"Fine." Sofia said, soft but implacable. She smoothed down the front of black dress suit deliberately, letting the moment stretch a little under her stony gaze. "... you did the best you could be expected to do under the circumstances. Let everyone know he's off-limits, to be treated with respect."

Sitting down in the leather chair behind the wide mahogany desk of her office, she curled her lip at her own words, watching the men before her relax with the tawny ambivalence of a lioness at rest. She breathed carefully, picking up a pen and uncapping it with her teeth without smudging her lipstick.

"If anybody kills the trifling fucker, it'll be me." She wrote without looking up, neat, even print on a legal pad. "And be careful. There are more escaped lunatics out there, so if anybody else pulls that 'call this number and set up a meeting' bullshit, you get me, I don't care how inconsequential it seems. You coulda died. That's a big deal to me, okay? You're not disposable suits, you're family. Okay?"

Mumbling assent, they stood, taking the piece of paper she handed them and shuffling out. She watched them go, steadily, and when the door had shut she turned to the portrait of Carmine Falcone on the wall to the left of her desk.

"So what are we gonna do about you, Daddy?"

Hi, guys! Thanks to a friend of ours, Edward, we now have our own private network. This is the new way for you to contact me and each other without anybody being able to see. That means I want constant updates on how each job is going. You should be informing me and each other on what's going on, if there's a delay, if something's gone wrong, that kind of thing. This will make us way more efficient than any of the other families. We're on top, guys, always remember that. Nobody has a chance of keeping up. If you need help, refer to Tony or come to me if you have questions, I promise I don't bite. :)

Stay safe,
Sofia Gigante

"All of us?"

"Except Sal. She said she'd visit him personally."

"Johnny checked the place out, said there was hardly any men around."

"Course there aren't, they're ruined. Anyone else?"

"The cook, two maids, Milos."

"Youth today. They got no sense for running things how they're meant to be run. Calling us all in like this."

"Sirs? The lady will see up you upstairs. This way, please."

my words confuse you
my eyes don't move a blink
cause it's easier sometimes
not to be sincere
somehow I make you believe

when I speak I'll cross my fingers
will you know you've been deceived?
I find a need to be the demon
a demon cannot be hurt

honest is easy
fiction's where genius lies
cause it's easier sometimes
not to be involved
somehow, I'll make you believe.
