Obligated To The Dellucci
As a young child Arieon Anderson was orphaned when she lost a brother and her parents in a fire that started in their home.
Dominic Dellucci and some members of his mafia, were on a stakeout in the neighborhood on a rival gang member who was undercover as one of his men. Yeah the bad guys do stakeouts too.
Dominic noticed the fire and was compelled to help and that's when he found Arieon, no taller than his knee the poor thing. His men urged him to leave the child behind but she struck a soft spot within him.
The Dellucci, being one of the Italian American mafias, have quite the number of rivals in this literal cut throat race. Though Dom wasn't doing too well, and to become a greater force in the mafia world, he joined forces with Luca Rivera. However, the Toscani, another family, are after the Dellucci's most prized possession, Arieon.
She was the stone that would kill two birds, and make The Toscani's grip on the world tighter.
A decision had to be made, on an offer that couldn't be refused. The Toscani wanted Arieon Anderson and would send over his niece, as collateral to ensure that she wouldn't be hurt, it was that or a war.
Though the exchange was nothing in front of Luca Rivera's words, "I'm afraid we can't meet the agreement. That's my future wife. She won't go with you." Those three sentences, said in attempt to uphold peace and keep Arieon safe would shake her world and force her to uphold her responsibilities to the Dellucci.
Although with mafia rats involved how safe was safe?
