    A favour

    My brother (not Andmark) asked me if I could write up godfather 2 as a book. A bit of a hard task I know but here it goes so far.

    Johnny Fontane sat in his dimly lit Las Vegas hotel with a pen in one hand and a bottle of whisky in the other. He had been trying to think of writing some sort of song but was too drunk to even write. He had been like this for months now ever since his third divorse came through. He was really depressed that this one had turned out to be a (Family forum censor) Like all the other's like his two other wifes "The bore and the (Family forum censor)" He thought to himself, this gave him a chuckle but it was hardly enough to cheer him up. He had to sober up, in a few days he would be singing at Michael Corleone's son's first comunion. He rememberd his childhood his family wouldn't have got a world famous movie star to sing at a party. he never had parties to begin with, half the time he was lucky to get a meal. The drunken old (Family forum censor) Of a father, and the mother who made a (Family forum censor)

    Johnny thought of the mess his life was in he thought about his wifes (all three of them) Particularry Ginny, he thought about his two teenage girls , he wanderd how they were doing with school, and with teenage boys, he hoped they were luckier in love than there father. He then thought of his second wife but not for long, he didn't want to get more (Family forum censor) than he already was. Finally he thought of his third wife the "Great" Deanne Dunne. How many men had drooled all over her picture in the tabloids. But he was truly in love with Deanne, it wasn't a (Family forum censor) of a relationship. It was love, an emotion he hadn't felt for years. They had managed three years of marrige until it all messed up. She started to say he was a bore and that his plans to settle down were ridicolous. They got into fights, verbal and physical. They got so bad that a divorce was innevetable. They divorsed and within a month she started (Family forum censor) with Fredo Corleone and within three more month's they were engaged to be married. This really (Family forum censor) Johnny off, mainly because of the slut Fredo was marrying.

    Johnny had come to know Fredo well over the past few years, he knew he was a ladies man. Not the sharpest knife in the draw but the most trustwothy and friendly. Johnny thought a man like Fredo wouldn't marry a (Family forum censor) like Deanne. Sure he would (Family forum censor). There were few men in the world who would refuse her, and most of them were (Family forum censor). But marriage was a lifelong commitment. Not that Johnny could judge him. Johnny turned his head to look at the clock, it was late, very late but by Johnnies standards it was a normal time to be awake at. He thought he should get some sleep and decided that was the best option. He got up and looked in the mirror. He was handsome despite his middle age, a sort of experienced face. Experienced not old. He got undressed, got into bed and started to think about his godfather. How would he react if he was still alive. Finding out his godson had married another (Family forum censor). He probably would never have been invited to the communion. But at the moment Johnny couldn’t give a **** about the communion. He felt a outsider to the family now that his godfather was dead. The only time anyone ever got in touch with him from the family was when Michael had wanted him to sing at one of the casinos. Michael had changed as well, he was no longer the nice young boy he used to know. He still had the quiet friendliness but he seemed more like the Don every day. He had the Don’s eye, he had the skill and wit and He never uttered a threat. He was a good business man. Johnny didn’t know much about the mafia but in his eyes it was a business like any other. He turned to the lamp, switched it off and went into a deep sleep.

    Frank Pentanglie sat in his new York mall thinking. He thought about his problems and how to tackle them. He had two major problems one was Anthony Rosato and the other was Luigi Rosato. These problems had started a year ago when his boss and mentor Peter Clemenza had died when he had a “heart attack” . Frankie didn’t care about all that **** he knew that he was murdered. Murdered by two of the biggest ****s to ever walk the earth, the Rosato brothers. In 1954 the corleone’s had moved to Nevada, headed by the Don’s youngest son Michael. Now known as Don Corleone he had only ever encountered Michael twice one was at the old Don’s daughters’ wedding and the other was at the funeral of Don Vito Corleone. On only one of those occasions did they talk or even make eye contact and that was at the wedding, Michael had went to the bath room and by coincidence Frankie was there they had a little chat about the wedding and that was it. Frankie often had conversations with strangers he was friendly despite unfriendly look. He was a short plump man with a wrinkled face and grey hair, with a moustache. he had once been quite handsome, but that was a long time ago. When the Corleone’s had moved to Nevada Clemenza was given his own family and was also given the Corleone mall. Frankie had worked under Clemenzas Regime for over fifteen years now and as a reward for his loyalty, was given his own regime. A regime was a number of button men given to you to use at the Don’s orders, the man who owned these men was known as the capo regime. The don would give his orders to his consigliore he would then tell one of the capo regimes the Don’s orders and the capo regimes would give the job to a soldier. Things were good the family got stronger and soon seemed like the old Corleone’s. Not as powerful but it was a good job nonetheless. In nineteen fifty seven the Rosato brothers were promised by Clemenza that when he died they would be given three teritories in the Bronx after he died. The thing what really (Family forum censor) Was that two weeks later Clemenza was dead.

    With the death off Clemenza Frankie became the don. Frankie had been Clemenzas second in command for months now but he never thought he would be in command. Normally Frankie would have had those two (Family forum censor) killed and (Family forum censor) But he couldn't. You see the Rosatos were backed up by the man known as Hyman Roth, a Jew from Miami. He was one of the most dangerous men in the country and not one to be messed with. Like most, Roth started out on the streets, petty gambling rackets in Miami. During Prohibition he turned his team into an empire, he ran in illegal alcohol from canada. After that Roth had money to invest and ever since then he's invested money in casinos and hotels. Sudenly his thoughts were interupted by a voice knocking at the door. The voice shouted "Don Pentangeli are you in there?" Frankie hesitated to answer but then decided to. "Who is it?" Frankie asked. "It's Willie." The voice replied. This pleased Frankie, Cicci was a good kid he made his bones by (Family forum censor) "Yeah come in Cicc." The door opened, a short thin man with a black combover haircut came in. "Sit down Cicc" Frankie said. Willie sat on the nearest armchair to the window. Cicci always sat by the window, in a car, in a house, anywere. He was a very strange guy. He was the kind who could (Family forum censor) And cry over the death of a cat. "Don Pentangeli, I have an idea. I think I know how we can get those Rosato ****s killed." Frankie gave him a look of concern and confusion. Cicci was a good Capo regime but he was hardly a genius. He was Basically a muscle man. "Carry on" Frankie orderd.



    To be continued.

    1. Why can't he just do it himself?
    2. Seriously, who comes to a cricket forum and does this? Especially DURING THE WORLD CUP FINAL!?!?!?!?!?

    "Well, we have to admit we ain't powerful enough to take on Hyman Roth. That's a undisputed fact. And we know we can't lie down to those Rosto ****s so we've got a problem. Problem being an understatemen. But what we have to ask ourselves is who is powerful enough to go to war with Roth?" Frankie smiled "Your enthusiastic cicc, but you can't get your own family-" Cicc interupted " I know that, the person I'm talking about is Don Corleone." Frankie paused, the Corleone's were poweful enough for sure but would they really want to start a war with Hyman Roth. He thought and decided the Corleone's are loyal to their family. And if the Don refused than it would be an insult.

    Michael Corleone lay in his bead in his Las vegas mall. It looked a beautiful morning the sun was out his two children Anthony and Mary were awake and having breakfast downstairs . It was a shame his wife wasn't there. As usual Kay had gone to church this morning, just like every morning for the past four years. She went with his mother every day since becoming a catholic. Michael had gotten used to it by now, his thoughts were on his son Anthony. It was a big day for him. As a ctholic family big emphesis was based on the first holy communion of a child. Michael got up and got dressed he turned to look at the clock in two hours time his son would be having the first holy communion of his life. He went down and saw his children he sat down had breakfast and read the newspaper, his thoughts were wandering away from the headlines because he had three people to speak to today. Senator Pat Geary, Johnny ola, and Frankie "Five angels" Pentangeli. They had booked apointments and unfortunately got his son's communion. Michael thought not to think of that for now, today was to be a happy and fun day for his son. So Michael decided to wear a smile until these meetings came. He finished his breakfast and went to the bathroom to shower he then put his clothes on and was ready to go.
