Alexia Skylar Hale
My morning was already ruined when I saw Ace fucking De Santis sitting in my living room. He and I got history. Yes, we tried to kill each other.
Four years ago, he and I were sent on the same mission. We were both after someone. A powerful man who was buying and selling woman. We didn't know we were after the same person until we fucking fought over him. My dad wanted him alive and his dad wanted him dead. Well, finally, he died. Ace shot him.
My morning was ruined again when I read that piece of paper in my father's hand. Some kind of sick bastard is after me and Ace.
And then my morning was ruined again by father who suggested that we work together and sort this out. FUCKING HELL.
"I think that's a good idea." A man said standing infront of the our main door.
He looked around 45-48 years old. He had a resemblance to Ace so I guessed who he was. His father. Great.
"Dad. What are you doing here?", Ace deep voice asked as his dad walked to us, to him.
"It was urgent. We received a letter. Your mother found it on our bed", Vincenzo stated, taking the letter from his pocket and handed it to Ace.
"Chris. It's been a while." Vincenzo said, holding his hands.
"Agreed. Meet my daughter, Alexia and other daughter, Dana." My dad introduced us.
Vincenzo walked to me and said in a deep voice "Alexia Skylar Hale. I've heard so many things about you."
"Only good things, I hope."
"Good, interesting things, yes. Unbelievable things... " he replied smiling.
"What does the letter says?" My dad asked Ace.
"Its an invitation", Ace replied as he continued reading
"To what?", I asked curiously
"To a party", Ace said smirking.
What an ass.
"And?", My dad asked
"Ayyy a party!! Can't wait to gooo!!", Dana yelled.
"Not everyone is invited, barbie." Ace said to her. I had to bite my cheek in order not to laugh at his "barbie" to him.
"Who is invited?" My dad asked
"Me and Her." Ace replied staring at me.
"Only the two of us?" I asked and Ace nodded.
"Whyyyyyy her????" Dana screamed
"Shut the fuck up." I said to her. She got on my nerves, couldnt help it.
"Why You? Hope you die there. Adios", Dana said as she left the room.
"Bitch." I murmured
"Heard that." My dad said and laughed
"Good because she is one.", I said which caused Ace and his dad to smile even my dad.
I was always my dad's favorite. I knew that.
"Is there a reason why Ace and Alexia should go there alone?", My mother asked while walking to us.
"I assume you know Melissa." Dad said to Vincenzo as he looked at Melissa.
"Yeah." Vincenzo said.
"Because they want il fantasma and The Mafia leader of De Santis who is also the best assassin to come to their party." Vincenzo stated.
"Please. il fantasma is a myth!", We could hear Dana yelled from upstairs with her fake Italian accent. Yeah, she didn't know that her sister is I'll li fantasma.
"She doesn't know?", Vincenzo asked, looking at me. I mouthed a "No" to him. I swear I could see Ace smiling.
"And if you think Alexia is that li fantasma, you're mistaken." She yelled again and everyone smiled because of her being so dumb.
"I think we should tell her" my mom suggested and I nodded.
"Danaa!! Come downstairs for a moment will you?" My mom yelled and We could hear dana saying "coming!"
And here she was, standing beside my mother.
"Legends has it that li fantasma has a tattoo on her waist. A fucking dragon tattoo. You don't have any tattoo on your waist. So why are you lying to everyone?", Dana said to me.
She was right. I do have a dragon tattoo on My waist but I hid it with make-up. I had to otherwise, my family would have become a target. But some people won't understand it.
"There's this thing called makeup. It can be used to hide many things but im assuming you know that as you use it a lot." Ace said for me. He literally took the words out of my mouth.
"What he said."
"Liar! Prove it." Dana said
"She is li fantasma." Chris and Vincenzo said in union with their Italian accent.
"Stop lying. Why's everyone lying? I'm old enough to tell when someones lying. And right now, you are lying." Dana said. She is making a fool out of herself.
I ignored her stupid comment and went upstairs. I went in the bathroom to take a shower and remove that make-up.
"See? She got embarrassed and ran away", I could hear Dana saying.
"I dont think she ran away." Vincenzo stated
"Nope. She didn't run away. She'll be back", My dad replied
After like 10 minutes, I got out of the shower, wore a shirt exposing my waist and the tattoo so that that bitch Dana can see it.
I went downstairs with the tattoo.
"So much for being old enough to determine whether someone's lying or not huh?" I let out as she stared at the tattoo.
"It's true... You are real... Of course you are real. I should have known. When you returned home every night with blood all over you. When you torture people like a crazy psychotic bitch to get what you want from them. To make them spill the truth." Dana said
"Alexia Skylar Hale is li fantasma. Damn, everyone is gonna find out about this. Everyone will know me as well for revealing the identity of li fantasma." She added.
"FUCK NO." Everyone said at the same time. Including me.
"You'll do nothing of that sort! Do you hear me?? If you do that, I won't think twice before killing you." I said to her furiously.
"You will not do such thing. That's betrayal and you know I hate betrayers. I won't care if it's family or my own daughter or not." My dad said to her
"Geez. Fine." She said and walked to her room.
"I'm starting to regret suggesting that we tell her." My mom said.
