Really didn't like writing this one chapter, so I decided to end it quickly and boringly so I could get to the good stuff later on. After this, the story really gets going.
Pegorino Crime Family:
Honker's Chapter 7: Lunch and Lunch
Vito Miorelli, a senior among the family, spoke up. He brushed through his balding, white stone hair and was garmented in a nice gray suit. He was the somewhat quiet underboss under Jimmy Peg. The man cleared his throat and sat up straight in his seat.
“Alright, well it’s time about now we lay our cards on the table. There... has been some obvious “things” that have been troubling and we’ve all been meaning to discuss on these ‘things’.”
Vito leaned back, scratched his head, and gave a hard sigh with an uneasy expression. Everyone in the room were stern and fixed their eyes on the man as he continued to speak.
“Firstly, I hope we all know about the recent betrayal of a friend of ours, uh... spilled some beans to some Triad work party. Now they’re trying squeeze in on us, mainly because of this favorite tip jar.”
Vito grabbed a glass of water belonging to him and took a quick sip. “Now obviously.. this is a problem. There’s gonna be compensation of course, always; when there’s a problem there’s always gotta be a solution, specially for this type of thing.” Vito rested the side of his head into his hand and lent his elbow on the arm of his chair.
“I haven’t got much word yet so hitting back is gonna need some planning. Mikey’s our prime dartboard... and then we’ll make those Triads back off. Mikey probably knows some routines from us. Not to say to break up your daily runnings, but keep an eye out."
Mikey Leone was an associate to the Pegorino, a good one at that. But his drug addiction led himself to be feeding off the Triad’s drug supply and in order to get his next fix, he complied to the numerous tellings of Pegorino turf, small rackets, and other things respectively. It was good that Mikey was only an associate, which meant he knows much less than the common made guy. The plan was to wipe out Mikey solely and to calm down the Triads, as Mikey was their main source of information and killing him off immediately would severe the Triads’ motivation to continue.
The next topic of discussion was among the family itself.
" Alright, Leo, you wanna shoot - shoot."
Leo DelGiorno was in a dispute with Luigi Satriani over a 100 thousand dollar robbery that originally started with Leo's for the taking, before the security codes and plans of the robbery were passed along to the Satriani crew unintentionally. Thus, the Satriani crew headed in for the taking and grubbed up the money themselves.
"No disrepect or anything. But I want what's mine out of that grand score that Luigi here decided to take himself upon to taste. Me and my guys did all the dirty work - getting those codes took f*cking hours and all the planning - so I know I deserve something."
"Then what's your starting platform?" Vito asked.
Luigi's natural, smart smirk turned into a face of dismay and he straightend himself out his lean in his chair. "Woah, my guys did all the heavy work getting that stuff by night. Consider you getting a bit lower there, I dunno maybe uh... 6 grand?"
"f*ck that. Go hang yourself." Leo said coldly, his eyes beamed bluntly at Luigi.
"Oh! Take it easy, take it easy. Have some coffee," Vito said, trying to reassure the situation. Leo put his hand up and refused. "No thanks."
Vito grabbed his cup of coffee once again and took a sip and thought it over. "... Luigi you'll give him 12 boxes," he said, switching looks between Luigi and Leo. "Sound good for the both of you?"
Luigi laid another smirk, whilst Leo gritted his teeth and furrowed his eyebrows in mild irritation, both angried and shocked his request for 50 percent was not given.
"Fine," he replied, low and reluctantly.
The sit-down continued. Conversations inside the secret back room were composed of various subjects and matters including in and out of the family. Disputes were settled, arrangements were met, and matters were talked upon. When it finally ended, everyone went on their way. Willie Shotsie immediately went to meet up with Pasqual "Patrick" Vanzetti and Joey Macazo, two young associates who were trusted with the job of delivering street goods to business friends of Willie.
The meetup was down on BOABO, behind the Woodfellas warehouse. It was a reasonably fast meetup. Willie took his own cut of the cash and stuffed it in his briefcase, and threw it into the boot of his car.
"You guys did good. Nothing happened, I assume?" Willie said.
"Nah, nothing. Easy. We Just went and go," answered Macazo, a bit nervous and jittery. They were eager wannabes, and were glad that they did another good errand for a made man. Patrick followed Joe's with a generic "Yeah". Willie looked at them both, then nodded.
"Alright. Whenever I need something done again, you know I'll be sure to get you guys up on it. Ciao."
With that, Willie departed on his way. Just to confirm that the deal was made, he phoned Valon Topali and Kenny Chung, two of his buyers. Everything turned out to be okay. Willie drove to his home after settling up the money and after staying abit on duty at Honker's. Things were getting interesting, especially with the Triads working in on the Pegs with the help of their two-faced friend. Hopefully what everyone discussed of that at the sitdown concerning Leone and the Triads worked out their strategies and thoughts.
