Chapter 3

  • "Sei bello!" [You are beautiful!] Sergio muttered, causing her heart to skip. Did he just say she was beautiful? She wondered.
  • "You may now kiss your bride"
  • He took a step closer and her heart thumped in her chest. A voice in her head was screaming for her to run but before she could think of it, Sergio wrapped his right hand around her small waist. He pulled her closer to himself and stared into her green teary eyes.
  • Rosana turned cold being so close to him. The only man she had ever been this close to was her Allen but now...
  • "I do not want to marry you!" She whimpered, tears clouding her vision.
  • "Too late" He smirked. "Sei mio, amore" [You're mine now, love] With that being said, he crashed his lips on hers, kissing her fiercely.
  • Rosana had expected a dance and a couple of celebrations afterward. But none of that happened. Instead, she was led into a black limousine by Sergio who got in afterward.
  • She wasn't even allowed to hug and kiss her mother goodbye. Her father had been quick to step in and whisper into her ears "You're doing this for Nino" before he disappeared.
  • Nino was her older brother who died a couple of years back. She was only ten when she learned about his death. She had cried so hard and begged her father to let her return to Italy for his burial but he refused. When she finally returned two years later, no one said a word about him and she was scared to ask.
  • But now, he mentioned him freely, leaving her confused and clueless. How was she doing this for her late brother? What did being betrothed to the ruthless Sergio De Niro have to do with him?
  • Breaking out of her thoughts, she looked up at Sergio and caught him smoking from his pipe while scrolling through his phone. When he raised the pipe to his lips and stuck it inside his mouth, she stared hard in disgust. She couldn't believe he had kissed her with that same mouth.
  • "You know you have all the time in the world to drool over me, Bambolina. I would advise you to breathe. You look dead" He looked up at her and returned his gaze to his phone. [Babydoll]
  • Rosana stared at him in disbelief.
  • Did he just accuse her of drooling over him? She couldn't even look at him without feeling irritated.
  • "I look dead because I was forced to marry you against my will. I do not love you and I do not want to be with you!"
  • He chuckled lightly but she considered it dark. How could she be with a man whose mere laughter terrified her?
  • "You will learn to be with me, Bambolina, because you are mine"
  • "No, I will not!" Rosana rebuffed. She dipped her hand into her cleavages and pulled out a ring. "I was engaged to the one I love before you and my father came along and took me away from him. I do not love you and I never will!"
  • She was stubborn and adamant, Sergio could tell. He stared at the ring she was holding without saying a word.
  • She had expected him to say something. To apologize for the whole trauma and heartbreak he had put her through within the past few hours and terminate the marriage. She had hoped for all of those but instead, she got nothing. He just sat emotionless, staring at the ring with a void expression on his face.
  • Rosana was shocked. Did he not understand everything she had just said?
  • "I do not want to be with you. Do you not understand?" She yelled out in frustration. "I want to be with the man I love!"
  • A minute passed before he asked quietly. "What is the name of this man you love so much?"
  • "Allen... Allen Iverson"
  • He nodded and then picked up his glass of whiskey. He downed the whole content and resumed scrolling through his phone like he had not heard her words.
  • The limousine finally pulled up in front of a gigantic mansion and before Rosana could decide whether to step out or not, the doors were thrown open.
  • She sluggishly got down from the car and looked around her in shock and admiration. Her mouth dropped. She had expected Sergio to own one of the biggest houses in the country but she had not expected it to be so beautiful and wonderfully built.
  • She was lost staring around and wasn't aware of the men that bowed to her with their heads almost touching the ground.

  • When they finally arrived in the bedroom, Sergio opened the door and ushered Rosana in. "Welcome home!"
  • Rosana looked around the room in fright and finally turned to look at him. He was still standing behind the closed door, not making any attempt to step further into the room.
  • "Why?" Rosana croaked, tears shimmering in her eyes. "Why did you kill him?"
  • He realized she was asking about what happened yesterday. His expression remained unchanged, and he answered her question nonchalantly, as if discussing the weather.
  • "He deserved to die, Amore"
  • "Aveva una famiglia" [He had a family]
  • Sergio scoffed and started walking towards her, causing her heartbeat to accelerate unusually. Rosana took a step backward, trying to avoid him.
  • "Do not try to run away from me, Bambolina" He groaned.
  • "No, stay away from me. You killed him... You..."
  • Before Rosana could take another step backward, he caught her by the arm and pulled her.
  • "You cannot run away from me. Do not ever think you are capable of doing that!"
  • His voice was gravelly and it caused chills to run down Rosana’s spine. Rosana was scared of his cold voice, the deadly look in his eyes, his nearness... Everything about him scared the living hell out of her.
  • He finally stepped away from Rosana and Rosana heaved in relief.
  • "Take it off" He ordered after what seemed like a minute. Rosana looked up at him in confusion, wondering what he was talking about.
  • "No!"
  • "No? Let's see about that!" He stepped closer and began pulling the gown from all angles. He was on the verge of tearing it with his hands.
  • "Stop... Stop!" Rosana’s voice quivered and tears of fright brimmed her vision.
  • She couldn't stop crying because she witnessed a person being murdered for the first time in her life. Right in front of Rosana, her newly wedded husband had tortured and murdered a man mercilessly.
  • "Stop, please..."
  • "No... Stop touching me. Take your bloody hands off me!" Rosana yelled.
  • "What did you just say?" He paused and looked down at her with dark metallic eyes.
  • "Stop touching me!"
  • He grabbed Rosana’s neck and she gasped, her eyes widening in shock. That was the last thing she expected him to do.
  • "You should not make me do this on our wedding night, Bambolina. You are mine and I will take whatever I want, whenever I want, wherever I want, and however I want, till death do us part, Mi Amor"
  • His eyes were swimming in darkness and Rosana felt a trail of shivers running down her spine just by his stare. Without warning, he crashed his lips on hers, his mouth encompassing hers.
  • With his hand still wrapped around Rosana’s neck, he tilted her head and angled for deeper contact. "Kiss me properly!"
  • But instead of that, Rosana pushed him away and sent her shaky palm to his cheeks before she could even process it. Her body trembled in realization and her pulse pounded heavily. What has she done?
  • Sergio stilled. He couldn't believe he had just been slapped so hard. When he finally looked up at Rosana, his eyes were bloodshot and dark. His hands were itching to retaliate so badly that they started hurting.
  • "Mi dispiace. I... I am not used to people forcing themselves on me" [I'm sorry!] Rosana uttered, keeping her head up and shoulders high.
  • "Non avresti mai dovuto farlo, Bambolina. Not even by mistake" [You should never have done that]
  • He then walked out of the room like an angry lion.
  • Rosana was still scared of what he would do when he returned.
  • But she waited for a long time and he didn't come back.
  • After a while,
  • Rosana heard a soft knock on the door and gasped in fright. Who could that be? She thought as she quickly dressed up. Rosana grabbed one of Sergio's long coats and covered herself up because the nightwear was too revealing.
  • "Good evening, My Lady" The older woman bowed once Rosana threw the door open.
  • "Who are you?"
  • "I am Viola, My Lady. Your husband assigned me to take care of you"
  • "You can call me, Rosana. Rosa in short" Rosana corrected but Viola shook her head immediately.
  • "I cannot do that, My Lady. The Don will have my head"
  • Rosana saw how terrified she looked and sighed. She couldn't blame the poor woman. She was also afraid of her own husband.
  • "Where is he? Are we not supposed to have dinner together?"
  • "I am afraid I do not know, My Lady," Viola responded, still bowing.
  • "I want to go outside."
  • "It is late, My lady."
  • Rosana frowned. She wanted to take a tour around the house and see if there were any chances of escape.
  • "Alright, I will follow you around. I am bored and cannot stay here like a prisoner. Please do not tell me no, Viola, please!"
  • Taking a deep breath, Viola responded. "Alright, My Lady."
  • Rosana followed her around, admiring the interior of the house. All the maids and soldiers they came across kept bowing to her. After some time, she decided to return to the room with Viola behind her.
  • Sunddenly, “Uhh! Hader! I am cumming baby!”
  • "What is that sound?" Rosana asked. There were screams and pleas from someone who was in pain.
  • "Can you hear it?"
  • "My Lady I..."
  • Before she could complete what she was saying, Rosana dashed toward the direction the sound came from. When she finally got there, Rosana froze in front of the slightly opened door.
  • "My Lady!" Viola whispered and rushed over. Without looking into the room, she shut the door and led her away.
  • "Who is she?"
  • "I am sorry, My Lady..."
  • "I said—Who is she, Viola?" Rosana had seen the lady but she couldn't see her face.
  • Poised on her hands and knees, Sergio fucked her hard from behind.
  • "She... She is his mistress"
  • Rosana was dumbstruck.
  • If Sergio had a Mistress, what then did he want her?
