This was very uncomfortable to be around. When he was done, he tossed the guy out onto the street. He looked pretty happy doing all that. That was pretty disturbing by itself. There was only a couple of hours before the brothel would close for the night. Emilio made an appearance. He had been called by Nicolò. Emilio wanted to know if it was true. I told him about what had happened to me in the last couple of days. He looked at me and smiled. "I knew you could do it." he said. I pulled him into a hug. In less than a second. he shoved me off of him. "We can't. Made men don't do that." he said firmly. I frowned at that sentiment. He just smirked at me. "Especially when you smell like 3 whores." he teased. After that, we just waited together for Nicolò to be done for the day. Nicolò then retold the fiasco with the john that likes Cameron. There was a sense of pride in his voice during the story. On one hand, he was a guard and he saved a worker from harm. On the other, I knew how viciously he hated the john because he was gay. Emilio thought that it was a cool story. Cameron was actually thankful.
Emilio sighed when the time to close came. The 2 of us were ushered out of the brothel by the staff. Nicolò still had to do a sweep and help count the money of the day. I was staying outside because I needed to wait for them to finish up. Cameron and Tommy poked out their heads to see if we were still there. We were. I knew that Nicolò had told Emilio our plan. He seemed to be considering doing the same exact thing in a different town. That would be pretty good. I wished him luck. Ronan, Cameron and Tommy joined us on the street. Jan and Lewis saw us and then passed us by. They were going home. Neither of them knew where we were going to go next. It was another 9 minutes before Nicolò came out with the bartender and host. They waved to us before going to where they lived. All of them lived at the same shitty motel. The owner gave paid for them to have a room each. None of them had much else in there aside from trinkets and toiletries. They had to go get them all. I needed to go get a large van. Nicolò had to go get his friends from the alley. We would all meet by the brothel.
All of us split up. We had agreed on 3 hours. I knew that there was a large used car dealership. The salesman showed me the vans. I needed something that would hold a good 6 to 7 people. He had 2 to sell me. One was a tan and had no windows except for the front seats and the back doors. The other was black with multiple windows for the passengers. I wanted to be able to see. It was not like we were going to make it armored at some point. This was just to get us to the town. I paid in cash. He was thankful for making it easy for him. I got behind the wheel and began driving over to the brothel slowly. I hoped one of the others could drive. I did not feel confident at all in my ability to get out on the open road. I pulled up and parked on the block. I then waited for them all in the passenger seat. The first to get there was Nicolo and his buddies. Their names were Araldo and Bernardo. All 3 of them got into the van. I met them for the first time. They looked at me in awe. I was a member of the child gang that actually made it up the ranks as a real gangster. They would be able to do it all as well.
