CHAPTER 76 Underestimated
Liam
After Cris and I signed the visitor’s logbook, I messaged Pete we were outside of the viewing room waiting for him. I had just sent the message when the double doors suddenly opened and Pete walked out. I quickly surveyed the ceiling above my head and noticed several CCTV cameras, one in particular was looking straight at me.
“Follow me, gentleman,” he instructed, gesturing for us to follow him to the dark hallway. I hesitated. The corridor’s ceiling lights weren’t even on and the wall light fixtures were constantly flickering, reminding me of a scary movie I watched when I was I kid.
“Scared?” Pete asked, amused. I scoffed at him.
“Why would I be?” I asked. He chuckled, shaking his head at my arrogance.
“Because you’re walking into the lion’s den,” he answered, entering the dark hallway.
Pete looked like he was enjoying himself immensely. He had this strange smile plastered on his face as if he had the upper hand. I had this gut feeling there was something wrong.
Where the f uck was Leo and Benny?
I roughly nudged Cris to walk ahead of me, so I could message my men while we walked through the dark corridor. I purposely hung back, so Leo and Benny could catch up to us.
“If you’re looking for your goons, Liam, you’ll be happy to know they’re already here,” Pete said as he led us to the end of the hallway. “You’ll also be happy to know I’ve taken the liberty in keeping them comfortable while we waited for you. Now put your phone away, before I take it away from you and destroy it.”
I quickly pocketed my phone and ran my fingers through my hair, mad at myself for not having anticipated the possibility of this happening. I should have called in for more men as back up.
F uck! F uck! F uck!
“You’re awfully quiet, Liam,” Pete said, snickering. He stopped at a door and opened it. “You have always underestimated me. This time is no different. While you were providing Cris with the necessary attention to wake him from his crazed state, I used the time to prepare for our little get-together. Now get inside, before my generous persona fades.”

Cris entered, his head hung low. For a tall man who loved to beat up girls and rape them, he was a coward. I could never rely on him for help.
A small wooden table with a bottle of scotch and several glasses stood at one side of the room while four empty chairs circled around it. While we followed him to the table, Pete gestured to us to take a seat. This surprised me because he rarely offers me a seat. Usually he makes me stand in front of him while he sits… like a sl ave to his master.
When the door closed behind us, that’s when I noticed Leo and Benny kneeling on the floor at the other end of the viewing room. Their hands were bound and their mouths duct taped. Two huge men, who I have never seen before, were holding guns at the back of their heads.
Go d da mmit!
“Sit down,” Pete instructed, pointing to two of the chairs, as he took his seat. “Have a drink. with me.” He opened the bottle and poured some scotch in three glasses. “I said, sit down!”
I glanced at Cris and moved my head, urging him to sit down. We both sat down opposite Pete with our backs to the door.
Pete raised his glass for a toast, waving with his other hand for us to do the same. “Let us make a toast to new beginnings. Without my mother, I now have full control over the West North Central States. To new beginnings.” He clicked his glass against ours and downed his drink. Cris, following his lead, did the same. I hesitated, not wanting to give in to his machinations.
Usually he looked like a re t ard, but tonight he looked sharp in his black suit with his hair slicked back. He even wore his large gold ring encrusted with ruby and several small diamonds on his pinky finger, a ring bestowed upon him by the boss of the Angels of Darkness when he was given the rank of underboss. His father once owned it, now it was
his… Thanks to his mother.
“Drink, Liam. I’ve gone to great lengths to get this particular brand for you. Plus, it’s disrespectful to your host,” he sneered.
I lifted my glass to my lips and downed its contents, then leaned back on my chair, placing
hand on my gun. I was a good shot and could quickly shoot the two men behind Leo and Benny before aiming my gun at Pete. I just needed to time it perfectly.

“What is this all about?” I asked lazily. “And why are my men hostages?”
“Liam, you are clearly mistaken. No, they aren’t hostages. They’re my guests,” Pete answered

An annoying tone.
“Usually guests don’t have guns behind their heads, Pete,” I replied sarcastically.
“My guests do. Right Cris? You, of all people, know how I treat my guests,” he quipped, ending the subject. “And as a sign of respect, you will address me as Capo B astone. So, let’s get down to business, shall we? We need to do this quickly as I have other pressing matters at the moment. I just need some clarity before I bury my mother.”
“I had nothing to do with the death of your mother, if this is what all of this is about. I only found out about what you did in Chicago from Cris earlier this evening,” I clarified, hoping he would believe me.
“It’ true, Pete. He didn’t know- Cris tried to explain, but he was interrupted.
“Silence,” Pete said angrily, his face contorted with rage. “You honestly think I’d believe you?

f uck the other room and here you are lying to me about your involvement! Tell me, how the did the assassin know where my mother would be at that exact moment? It was timed to perfection!”
“Why are you pointing the finger at me? I didn’t even know about your conflict with the ENCS. Have you ever thought maybe it was someone close to you? For all we know, it could have been Cris!” I argued, hoping he’d realize I wasn’t the traitor.
“Woah! Why are you pinning all this on me, Liam?!” Cris yelled.
“Because you’re a f ucking coward!” I yelled back furiously. “Maybe, just maybe, to save your own skin, you gave out pertinent information including my delivery of crates! Then, so no one will suspect it was you, you create the perfect alibi. While the rest of us were working,

were out killing a girl, pretending to have a me ntal breakdown after you did it!” I roared, asserting my key points as fact.
I know I was putting Cris in a tough spot, but whatever he had with Pete had to stop. They
were causing more problems together.
It was Pete’s turn to go quiet, his playful mood had quickly turned grim. I knew I had caught
his attention.
He sat quietly, deep in thought, his face slightly moving as he debated with himself. I inhaled and exhaled deeply, slowly reaching for my gun. I glanced at Leo and Benny who
were hunched forward giving me a clear view of Pete’s men behind them.

It was now or-
“You make a valid point,” Pete said, realizing what I had just said could be true. I pursed my lips, frustrated I had just missed my opportunity to kill this moth erf ucker.
“You can’t honestly believe him, Pete? I swear, I would never ever betray your trust. We’re bestfriends, remember?” Cris reasoned.
I grimaced. He and Pete were bestfriends? The utter st upidity.
“I spoke with my capo about this and he too believes you’re a liability, Cris,” Pete said, shaking his head regrettably. “After listening to Liam make his case, I’m starting to think the same. Sure, we’re bestfriends, but one, I agree with Liam… you are a f ucking coward, and two, you, Liam, Dan and Jack are childhood buddies. Whatever trust we have isn’t as strong. as the bond you have with your three other friends,” Pete said, his face serious. “However, all of this can be fixed, including the matter of my dead mother. I just want what is owed me.”
“What do you want?” I asked impatiently. I just wanted this over and done with. Pete’s smile
was pure evil.
“A man after my own heart,” he said, taking out his phone and dialing. “Bring him in.”
The back door of the room suddenly opened. To my utter shock, in came my father, his
hands bound in front of him and his mouth duct taped. Following closely behind him 1 was a man who had a gun aimed at his back. Pete gestured to the man to lead my father to the empty chair beside him..
“What the f uck are you doing with my father?” I yelled, standing up. Pete raised his hand, cautioning me to stay in my chair. I slowly sat back down, keeping an eye on the man whose trigger finger was on a gun aimed at my father.
“Sit down, Theodore,” Pete instructed my father. I saw him hesitate, not wanting to give in to Pete’s request. “I said, sit down!” The man, who held a gun in his hand, kicked my father into the empty seat beside Pete. My father howled in pain as he fell back into the chair. Cris quickly stood up to help my father, but Pete waved his finger from side to side, telling him
that wasn’t a good idea.
“Now that everyone is here, let the negotiations begin.”
