New Beginning 123
“The Council’s decision is final, Don Vincenzo,” Basilio braced himself.
“The bastards hide while I rip my heart out.”
“…guard your position or death squads will be dispatched. Your son violated an entire village. He took a risk and lost.”
“A boy, barely out of his teens, is there no…” Don Vincenzo had tears in his eyes. “I could banish him to the jungle?”
“The Council demands blood... You have five days,” Basilio DiSica turned and walked out of the house. Armed guards let him enter his limousine. For the first time in his life, Basilio DiSica felt shame.
“Our new research facility,” Jordan steered the cart along the 6 kilometers of acrylic view ports carved into the coastline of theYucatan peninsula. Pompano, serrano, bass and shrimp floated past the view ports.
“Incredible,” Caleb stared like a small child.
“You’ll introduce new Piscean hybrids into the environment and monitor their viability. Consider this your new home.”
Denzel Patrik stared in exasperation at the glowing screen before him as he impatiently manipulated the controls. "Unbelievable."
"What's wrong?" The voice, edged with concern, came from behind him.
"Look at this crap." He pointed at the display. "A cheesy mafia movie or a documentary about fish. We gotta get cable." He pressed the "off" button, threw the remote aside and pushed himself out of his chair. "I'm gonna go read a book."
