Chapter Two|The Capo's of all Capo's

Euphoria had fallen into a routine after three weeks of working at Kisses. She would work at the club from 20:00 until 04:00 the very next morning. Once she got home around 05:00 she would take a much needed shower and have breakfast before leaving for her class that starts at 07:30. Once finished with all her classes by 12:30 she would go back home to take a nap. She would wake up and be at the club by 18:30. She would sit in the break room with all her work until 10 minutes before her shift.

Of course the other girls teased her about it and told her that she would remain where she is now, behind the bar. The 10 minutes before her shift she used it to eat a sandwich she made from home, use the bathroom before making sure she looked ok and then packing up all her things.

"Hey bambina." Tasha squealed hugging her. This time around Tasha wore a short skirt, black pasties on her nipples that had red lips on them, sneakers and thigh high socks. "How is my smartie pants doing?"

"I'm doing well just tired." Euphoria sighed adjusting her high waist black skirt. She wore a black high waist skirt, thigh high black socks, black bralete, black long sleeve crop top that showed her underboobs and black sneakers.

"Well I wouldn't be surprised if you were. You work too hard bambina. You're going to burn out."

"Well I've gotta make the sacrifice if I want to make it Tasha. It's hard but It's worth it in the end." Euphoria sighed as she washed her hands and began helping her.

"The earpiece." Annabel appeared out of nowhere as she tapped her ear.

Euphoria quickly took it off and shoved it in her pocket. "Sorry." She mumbled.

"That's what you say each time." Annabel gave a fierce glare.

"Aye ease up cagna." Tasha glared at her. "She needs it. Isn't this some health violation."

"It's not if it's affecting business." Annabel snapped. "And if it does your pay check will be the first to see the effects of it."

"Bitčh please! You know ever since bambina came here the dogs have been over flowing like a flood." Tasha scoffed. "So, if you fire her you'll have to explain to Jamal why the sales haven't increased and started decreasing."

They shared a heated stare before Annabel stomped off grumbling under her breath. Euphoria looked at Tasha as if she were crazy. "Are you trying to get fired?"

"Nope." Tasha grinned. "That bitčh couldn't fire me even if she tried. Jamal likes me too much."

"Who the fučk is Jamal?" Her brow arched.

"The owner duh."

"You're screwing the owner?" Euphoria laughed.

"No honey, he's screwing my brains out." Tasha bit her lip.

"I don't wanna know anymore Tasha." Euphoria shook her head. "And what's this you're saying about the overflow?"

"I swear you're very much blind bambina." Tasha shook her head. "I've never seen the cheap crawl in so much just to watch you work."

"When you say it like that it doesn't seem appealing." Euphoria scrunched up her nose. "Why would they come watch me anyways? There's all these other girls too watch."

"Bambina you're what we call innocent around here. You're innocence radiates so much it just calls all the uglies." Tasha giggled along with Euphoria. "But on the real though, you're beautiful bambina even a blind man can see that. You're too good for this place. That's why they're drawn to you."

"Thanks for the compliments even though I resemble a dirty raccoon." She snickered.

"Whatever bambina, let's get to work." Tasha shoved her playfully. "And put your hearing aid back on."

"Girl, Jamal may be saving your ašs by screwing you're brains out but I have to save my own ašs so no thank you. I'd rather listen to the possessed doll than loose my job."

"Possessed doll?!" Tasha threw her head back in a fit of laughter. "You crack me up bambina." She wiped a stray year away.

The night dragged on and more customers kept arriving. Euphoria was spent but kept going. Tasha hasn't failed to see how tired she had grown and did majority of the job without complaint. She hated that she worked so much. Tasha wondered what she was doing in a place like this and so adamant on keeping her job.


"Honey you need to rest."

"No I'm fine Tasha." She shook her head which she immediately regretted.  Her headache was slowly growing into a migraine.

"Ooo girl look, look, look." She tapped her shoulder repeatedly.

Euphoria looked to the entrance instinctively only to see the man she had seen in the alley the first night she worked here. Her breath hitched as she watched them walk in. She never dared  to tell a soul about what she'd seen that night. She wasn't looking for any trouble. Especially when he let her go."Who is he?"

"That bambina, is no other than Demetrius D'Agostino. The Godfather. He's basically the Capo of all the Capo's. You see Jamal is a Capo, Yes? But he is the top Capo making him the boss of Jamal and all others like him. Everybody answers to him. Nothing travels unnoticed by him. He's the King of the underworld. He owns the politicians, the President and the law. He has everyone in the palm of his hand. His family has been the most ruthless and merciless mafia family to live. Rumor has it that he's the worst society has seen but the best the underworld has ever that's led the D'Agostino family. He is all bad bambina, you should stay as far away from him as  much you can."

"After what you just told me. I'll do exactly that. No need to tell me twice." And just then as if feeling their stares his eyes looked over at them. His green eyes bore into her honey brown ones making her breath hitch. It felt as though he was looking into her soul. She shivered and broke eye contact unable to take the intensity of his stare.

"What was that?" Tasha asked her turning her around.

Her lips parted and closed several times raking her brain for some sort of answer but drew up blank. "I don't even know."

"Aye sweet cheeks! Come take my order why don't ya." A guy laughed tapping his friends who laughed along with them.

"Let's just forget all about the D'Agostino family, yes?"

Euphoria nodded her head only to regret it as she let out a pained groan. "Bambina are you alright?" Tasha became concerned.

Euphoria felt as if the music, the laughter, the squeals and even so much as the clicking of heals were too loud. Place her hands over her ears she tried to block out the noise. The smell of the cigars, after shave, sweaty bodies, perfumes, cologne's and liquor all mixed together making one horrid smell for her. Her mind began to spin and she could barely make out Tasha as stood infront of her. The world turned upside down making Tasha disappear. Her ears rung as black dots danced in her eyes. The last thing she could make out was a frantic Tasha or what she assumed was Tasha.
