Now it was Lucky who was pissed. “Sal, get the fuckin’ cement ready. Really, bro, did you have to say that? I like you, and I don’t appreciate you pushing our buttons.”
“Totally out of line; I apologize. Don’t tell me neither one of you have never played that way. If you do, I call bullshit.”
“Rule nine; the most important rule of all,” Sal stated. “You never ever, not ever, acknowledge anything about her participating in any sexual activity. It’s our God given right as Italian brothers to believe our sister is a virgin until the day we hand her off to the man who has passed all our tests. Get me?”
“Yeah, Virgin Francesca Mary.”
“Maria,” Lucky corrected.
Ryder drew his eyebrows together in confusion. “Maria?”
“Francesca Maria Moratti. Maria, Italian for Mary. There is a reason my father named her that. She is pure and good,” Sal explained.
“Agreed. But—and this is a big but—if you two want to continue believing your sister is a virgin, then stop coming here uninvited. You never know what you’re going to walk in on … like the couch we christened last night.” Ryder lifted his chin towards the new couch.
The brothers both started to gag as they looked at the couch.
“You had better be joking, asshole. Frankie! Hurry up in the bathroom! I think I just threw up in my mouth!” Lucky gagged out.
Ryder bellowed a boisterous laugh. “On that note, I should probably start the coffee. Francesca tends to get cranky without caffeine.”
“That’s why we usually bring coffee with us, but we were too excited to see her and hear about her trip today. We forgot.”
That comment softened Ryder up.
“And, guys, let me reassure you. I love that woman more than my own life. She will never question my respect or my loyalty. She is my heart and soul.”
The brothers exchanged a look Ryder couldn’t decipher. Then they approached him. He stuck out his fists, expecting fist bumps. Instead, the brothers leaned in on both side of him and kissed his cheeks in unison. Ryder pushed them away.
“Fuck off, you freaks! There is—”
“Now that’s what I like to see. The men who mean the most to me getting along.” Francesca smiled, arriving just after her brothers’ latest antics.
Lucky and Sal had won this round.
Ryder moved in front of her, bending down to look her straight in the eyes as he lifted his arms out wide. “There is something seriously wrong with your brothers.” He tapped his head with both hands. “They’re not right in the head. You need to make them appointments at the centre. Not funny. I’m serious.”
She pecked him on the lips as she giggled.
