Rallenti

By Sienna Mynx

 

“One word. You must learn it, before we begin,” he traced his finger now across the outline of her lip. “Say it with me. Rallenti.”
– Renaldo Cracchiolo

 

The year is 1993. Life as an enforcer for one of the most notorious crime bosses in Italy isn’t easy. Renaldo Cracchiolo is a Sicilian who takes pride in the oaths of omerta to honor and obey the wishes of his Don. It’s the reason why he was chosen to cross the Atlantic to New York City. However, the woman he meets and the time they share changes his heart and destiny.

 

Kyra Okeeno has big dreams. Born a second generation Nigerian American she’s decided to create her career outside of the expectations of her family. Working for Mirabella’s Fashion House in Manhattan is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Although there are whispers that the black designer who disappeared to Italy and married into a ruthless crime family plans to close her American offices, Kyra believes her new job will secure her future as a designer. But when she meets the family enforcer who was sent there to protect the women who own the company Kyra finds her self irresistibly drawn to his dark brooding. The passion they share is surprising, the friendship lasting. And on the night her world falls apart he is the only man capable of her rescue. And his actions bring about deadly consequences jeopardizing their budding romance before it truly gets a start. Could their friendship develop into something meaningful, or are the differences they share to vast? Donna Mirabella Battaglia is the only one who can decide.

 

Rallenti, is a short novella lifted from the Battaglia Mafia Series. If you are a fan of the series you will love reading about the family and their passions. If you are new to the series be warned—there can be scandal, danger, and intrigue in loving the men from the Battaglia Mafia Clan. 

 

 

 

Prelude

Girl Lost

 

“Kyra, you will fail. Do you hear me? We raised you better than this. School is what you should be working toward not a silly dream!” Her father’s words thundered in her skull. He looked to her mother and aunts for affirmation. When the women fell silent he threw up his hands in defeat. “I can’t deal with this!”

Her father walked out of the kitchen.

“Sit down, Kyra. Now.” Her mother said, as if she were only twelve instead of twenty-two. Kyra sat. Her mother began to flip from one sketch to another. “These are lovely, Kyra. I’m proud of your talent,” her mother began. She looked up at her with tears in her eyes, which overshadowed her praise. “But this is not your future. Your future is to be a doctor. It is what you have worked your entire life for.”

“It’s what you and Daddy want. Not me. Adika is only eight and she talks about being a lawyer. Esinam and Doe are both out of college working in jobs they hate and married to men they can’t stand. They made all of their choices based on what you and Daddy wanted.”

“That’s not true!” Doe said from behind her.

Kyra looked back. Her oldest sister was in the room. She didn’t mean to break Doe’s confidence about the troubles in her marriage but she was sinking. Her mother and aunts were banding together. She saw the writing on the wall.

Doe marched into the room, her long micro-braids swaying down her back. “You are selfish and spoiled.” She pointed a finger at Kyra. “Mama and Daddy have always spoiled you. Don’t sit there and talk about my husband when you have a different boyfriend every week.”

“That’s enough, Doe,” her mother said.

“Mama, you need to know the truth. Kyra has been sleeping with half of New York! She’s no angel!”

“I said that’s enough!” her mother snapped. Doe looked at Kyra with fury and stormed out. Her sister was only three years older than her and already she had four children. She knew Doe loved to dance, and had wished to go to dance school. Those dreams were set aside after the arranged marriage to the son of their minister.  It was one of the reasons why Kyra feared her mother’s decisions for her
daughters. Because marriage or school were the only two choices.

“I am not sleeping with half of New York. I have one boyfriend. One!”

“I will put it this way to you, Kyra,” her mother replied. “Either you stop this and join the medical program at NYU, or your father and I will cut you off financially. We will not pay for you to go to this fancy fashion school, and you will not sit here and live for free.”

“No, Mama,” Kyra shook her head sadly. “Please, listen to me…”

Her mother put up her hand. “Doe is right. You’re spoiled. Now you’re reckless with your future. You break my heart, girl. You think I don’t know about the nights you are out in the streets with those loose girlfriends. I keep the gossip from your father. I prayed you would get it out of your system. You made us so proud when you graduated with your degree. So happy when you were accepted into medical school. You are smart, Kyra, smarter than all of them. You could be anything. But not this.” Her mother shoved the portfolio at her. Kyra glanced to her aunts for support. They all looked at her as if she would fail.
