Chapter 1
1.10 The Business: Love and War

Alejandro led Angelo down a long hallway to a room with huge double doors. Alejandro turned the door knob and walked inside the enormous room. He sat Angelo’s bag on the floor and proceeded to show him around. There was a California king bed in the center of the room with a canopy and a big crystal chandelier hanging from the ceiling. Right in front of the bed hung a fifty-five inch flat screen television. Off to the side of the bed sat a vast wooden dresser with a mirror. Next to the dresser was a door that led to a walk-in closet. The walk-in closet was filled with dozens of shelves and clothing racks. In the back of the closet there was another door that led to a bathroom with a walk-in shower and Jacuzzi tub. There was his and her sinks and a separate room for the toilet. The room was decadent, everything was trimmed in gold. The floors were heated and made of Italian marble. Go ahead and get washed up dinner is in fifteen minutes Alejandro told Angelo. You will meet Camilla at dinner he said as he left the room.
Alejandro left Angelo’s room and shut the door. He walked down the hallway fast and angry to Camilla’s room. When he got to Camilla’s door he knocked twice. Camilla! He called. Camilla jumped up off her bed and went to answer the door. Yes she said as she slowly opened her bedroom door. Get ready for dinner he said. My cousins here he’s going to be staying with us for a while, so wear something nice he told her. Okay she replied sheepishly and shut the door. Alejandro headed downstairs with his thoughts consuming him he wasn’t thrilled about having a chaperone but he was going to make the best of it for the time being.
Camilla was the last one to come down for dinner. Alejandro and Angelo were already sitting at the table. She had on a long sleeveless form fitting black lace gown. When she entered the room Alejandro and Angelo both stood up to greet her. Alejandro pulled out her chair and she sat down as he slide it up to the table. As Angelo sat back in his seat their eyes met and he smiled. Camilla smiled back at Angelo and it was the first real smile she had since she had been there. As Alejandro sat down he caught the way they looked at each other, the look of love in their eyes and it made him jealous. Camilla had never looked at him like that. “Hi I’m Angelo” Angelo said as he reached out to shake her hand. I’m Camilla she replied. If you don’t mind me saying you are very beautiful he told her. Camilla giggled and said thank you. Alejandro gulped down his whiskey and clenched his teeth. He began to stare at Angelo with fury in his eyes. Cousin you didn’t tell me how pretty she was he said to Alejandro with a smile. Alejandro quickly changed the look on his face and laughed. A beauty like hers needs no introduction he replied. Camilla looked over at Alejandro and he was gripping his glass so tight his knuckles were white. She could tell he was forcing the smile on his face. She knew Alejandro liked her but she liked Angelo.

Chapter 2 2.13 The Other Guy: Fright Night
“I have no idea what I’m going to wear.” Asia said as she and her aunt entered the house. “You sound like you like this guy.” Her aunt said. “What? No way.” Asia replied shaking her head. “But he is cute and I don’t know for sure he killed those kids so I think I should look good just in case.” She added as she plopped down on the couch. “Just in case?” her aunt asked as she sat down next to her. “Yeah just in case he isn’t crazy and he wants a second date.” Asia said. “You like him!” her aunt exclaimed. “Asia you better be careful evil is often cunning and charming.” Her aunt added. “What do you mean by that?” Asia asked. “I mean don’t be fooled by a cute face.” Her aunt replied sternly as she got up and headed to the kitchen. Asia began to wonder, am I falling for this guy? She wondered how much of this attraction had to do with actually liking Giovanni and how much was a side effect of the medallion.
“Aunt Angela I’m going upstairs to do my h…

Chapter 3 3.1 Hero’s and Villain’s: Push
“It’s that necklace isn’t it?” Giovanni yelled as he snatched the necklace from Asia’s throat. “I have powers, do you have them too?” he asked as he stared at the necklace in his hand. Asia did not know how to reply so she just remained silent. Giovanni turned to look at her. “Please, answer me I feel like I’m losing my mind.” He begged.
Asia looked into his big puppy dog eyes and began to feel sorry for him. “Yes, I have powers too.” Asia sighed. “And there because of the necklace.” She added. “Can we get out of my driveway now?” she asked. “Look I don’t want my aunt coming outside lets just continue this date and I promise I will explain.” Asia said. Giovanni was in a daze. He did not move a muscle or speak he just stared out he window. “Giovanni!” Asia yelled.
Giovanni’s lips began to curve into a mischievous grin. “Yeah okay.” He said as he started the car. “So I’m not insane? I have powers?” he asked as he pulled out of the driveway.
“Yeah.…

“What should I wear to this high profile social event?” Camilla asked. “Don’t worry I’ll have my stylist send something over to the house for you.” Alejandro said as he skimmed through the menu. “Do you know what you want to eat yet?” Alejandro asked as he looked up from his menu. “No, just order me one of whatever you get.” Camilla said. “Okay.” Alejandro replied as he waved over the waiter. The waiter walked up to the table with a huge smile on his face. “Yes sir how may I help you?” The waiter asked. “Let me get two orders of the Gnocchi di ricotta and an order of Focaccia.” Alejandro said. “Yes sir anything to drink?” the waiter asked. “Let me get a bottle of that 1990 Romanee-Conti we just got in.” He replied. “Yes sir.” The waiter said as he took their menus, bowed and walked away. “That a very expensive bottle of wine.” Camilla said. “I know I’m trying to impress you.” Alejandro replied with a smile. Camilla smiled and began to blush. “Is it wor…

Chapter 2 2.13 Faith: Could This Be Love?
Kash went to the limo where Jessica was in the backseat crying. He could hear her outside the limo and he hesitated opening the door. He felt horrible about trying to force the situation. He had only made things worse. Kash was starting to think that Jessica was right her family hadn’t really changed they just saw an opportunity to use her. He got this weird vibe from her mother and sister he couldn’t put his finger on it but they both rubbed him the wrong way. Kash slowly opened the limo door and got in. He wrapped his arms around Jessica as she cried. “I’m sorry.” He said. “I was wrong it wasn’t my place to interfere I just saw how hurt you were and I wanted to help.” He added. Jessica wiped her eyes and choked back her emotions enough to speak. “Don’t you ever speak to me like I’m a child again.” She said sternly as she looked him in the eyes. “And you are right it wasn’t your place to interfere, you have no idea the crap those two put me thr…
