Mob Rule

“Pete Thompson.”  Nick Rapelli trembled, repeating his new name.

“Right.  Get used to it.  Car’s outside.  Move!”  The agent led Rapelli out the porch door.

Rapelli slid into the back of the sedan.  “I can’t thank you boys enough.  Where are we going?”

The driver answered, staring ahead, “Rainbow City.”

A cold, paralyzing fear hit Rapelli.  “Rainbow City?  You mean where they found Oscar Mazzarelli encased in cement …???”

“You win the prize, big man —- for fingering Tony Gardello and sending him to Leavenworth, you win big.”

The car returned from Rainbow City five minutes early —- and minus one nervous passenger.

Wow!  It’s been awhile, hasn’t it?  I’m sure the Queen is speechless since I didn’t inform her.  But, now that the world has slowed down to MY level, I thought I’d occupy my time with better things.

How is everybody?

    I’m thinking that agent may not have been an agent

  2. Dear Cuzzin Kent,

    I hear John Sebastian singing “Welcome Back.” And Rapelli wears cement overshoes and sleeps with the fishes. 😀

    Shalom,

    Queen Shelley

    Don’t know why they bothered to learn him a new name… poor bugger.
    Hope all is well in your neck of the woods

      It is well in my neck of the woods, too, considering. I’m sure Rochelle has made mention of it, too (since we live some twenty minutes away).
      Well, their giving him a new name lulled him in to a false sense of security — the mob is VERY efficient.

    Sounds like they made him an offer he couldn’t refuse.

    This is so realistic! I’m wondering why the “agents” returned five minutes early? Did Nick manage to escape? I would have tried, in his place, and it doesn’t seem they had him restrained in any way.

    5 out of 5 hit men, Kent

  9. I knew that the mob is in the concrete business… will Tony get free now?
