She was my twin sister.

Those five words kept spinning in my head.

I shook my head.

"What the hell?" I was confused as ever and this could happen only in movies but it was happening in reality. In my not so normal life. I looked at her, really stared at her and tried to remember the face I saw when I was kidnapped, but I couldn't.

Antonio took my hand and kissed it. I turned my head towards him, trying to communicate through my eyes.

"Shh. Just listen to her." He said softly and pecked the side of my head.

I looked at her again, she was picking up on the thread from her Jean shorts. Valentino circled his arm around her shoulder and pecked the side of her head.

"I uh... I and Nancy worked in a strip club before Raphael found us. There... uh... we helped him to kill his enemy, so he took us in and we happily joined his work. Uh... we used to help him in getting the important information from his competitors by uh...seducing them." Her voice cracked at last word.

"Of course we got all the luxuries for which we were working for." She chuckled sadly. A tear dropped from her left eye on her cheek. She sniffled then continued.

"Then... then he happened." She said pointing towards Valentino and laughed a little.

I smiled softly at that and Antonio squeezed my hand.

"We fell in love and after some time we got married in Vegas, secretly." she said.

I frowned and was about to ask the reason when Valentino, as if he just read mind, said, "Papa wanted me to marry someone else."

"When he found out about us. He tried to kill her." Valentino said in a low voice.

"Oh... That's- that's terrible. I am so sorry that you had to go through that." I said. And I really felt bad for the things she had to go through.

"No it's okay." She said and shook her head.

I shifted a little from my place and instantly winced.

Oww!

"You should rest, we'll come to you later. I am sorry." With that Natalie walked towards the door and Valentino came beside me and pecked my forehead.

"I always wanted a little sister." He smiled fondly at me and a smile similar to his curved its way on my mouth. I nodded.

Baby sister? I think I like that.

Well that's a good feeling.

"Now you see this is how it is not her fault." Antonio said. I hummed absent mindedly, my brain was trying to absorb the whole lot of new and unbelievable information.

"Take care Maria. We'll be downstairs." Tristan said while nodding towards Antonio and walking towards the door, Jax followed behind him.

For the second I almost forgot that they were also there in the room.

A soft caress on my cheek brought me out my thoughts. I looked at Antonio.

"How are you feeling?" He asked, searching into my eyes and tucking a lock of hair behind my ear.

"I'm..."

I am a mess right now.

"I don't know." I said in a broken whisper.

"Everything is so confusing. It was the worst nightmare. They didn't even let me have peace for just a second. They didn't even let me pass out. They tortured me, mentally, physically. I don't know where I was, for how many minutes, hours, days? I screamed for help and...and no one was there." It was like I had diarrhea of mouth, everything was just coming out of my mouth. "

"I am so sorry, I wasn't there at the time to stop them. I am so sorry cara."

Hot and bitter salty tears were streaming down my cheeks.

"What happened to them, Antonio? Did you find my dad? He said something about money and what about the proofs and documents against Raphael?And-"

"Slow down, I will tell you everything. You have to rest first." He said and turned around only to come up with pain pills. These will only make me sleepy. I wanted to know every detail.

I shook my head.

"Just tell me please, did you find my dad?" I asked, looking at him with hopeful eyes.

"Yes. But he is not in very good condition."

"What? I want to meet him. Please Antonio." I pleaded.

"I promise I'll take you to him after you get some rest." He said, putting the tablets in my hands and water.

I placed the pills on my tongue and swallowed them with water. After I was done I returned the glass to Antonio, who then placed it on the nightstand. Then he tucked me with a soft as cloud blanket and pecked the crown of my head.

Soon my eyes were getting heavy but I fought them and searched for his hand. He took my small hand in his.

"Stay?" I asked, my voice slurred.

"Always."

That was the last word I heard then sleep took over me.
