Doing everything he could to annoy me, Arminio stood up and got in my face. "Why the fuck should my sister marry a faggot!? They aren't even the proper bloodline!" he demanded. I just looked at him. "Because you sister was a very sloppy young woman. She got knocked up. This is the story: after a long night of partying and drinking she stumbled drunk into the wrong room. She thought it was yours but it wasn't. She didn't even realized until a week after when she overheard the story from him." He was speechless from rage. "Or do you 2 want the real story to come out. And suffer those consequences. As it stands, your reputation was already in the mud for being incestuous. This might actually raise opinions of you." That made him deflate. He looked over at Asella. "You should pick one of them." he said softly. Asella shot up from her seat. "How could you even say that!?" she yelled at him accusingly. His fists were balled up tightly. "I am our Father's second son. I can't let him down any more than we already have." he said, still choking on his emotion. She hung her head low. She cried more.
Even though this was painful, this was partly her fault. It takes 2 to tango after all. When she was done. She looked at Tommy. "I guess I'll take you. If I have to pick a fag, it needs to be believable." she said bitterly. I pat Tommy on the shoulder. "Once you get married to Asella, you will take her last name. You will essentially be adopted in to their family. When you have done enough for the family, you'll have some backing to be a made man." He looked at me curiously. "But... I'm gay. How is that going to work." I shrugged. "She's already pregnant. The child is yours. Going forward, all you need to make a baby is sperm hitting an egg. Asella is fertile. She works in a brothel, so she probably is no stranger to toys. Have her fuck your ass with a dildo while your dick is inside of her." Tommy rolled his eyes. "Fine. I'll do it." he said. Ronan just sighed. "What do I do?" I looked at him and said "Nothing. This is a crucial mission for Asella and Arminio. Keep your mouth shut." I then swept my eyes across all 4 of them. "Remember, snitches get stitches." I warned. Asella and Tommy would now get married.
Feeling that the issue was settled, I pulled Ronan and Tommy out of the room. "Ronan, I want you to continue to work on some job opportunities. After you do a good 10 jobs for our family, you'll be a shoo-in. The same goes for you, Tommy." They both nodded their heads. Ronan said "I don't know about all this. I don't want to get married to someone I can't love." I sighed. That was fair. "Fine. I am trying to put you in the best position possible. You don't have to do something that will make you unhappy." I said. It was not that serious. Once I was made the lieutenant of this town, I could make them all made men. This scheme was just to speed up the process for Tommy. It might pay off in other ways too. The next day, I went with Tommy, Asella, Ronan and Arminio. I was able to bribe a priest in order to marry them right away. It was a very simple Mass, right after the 5 o'clock service. There were a trio of witnesses, so it was totally legitimate. The documents were signed and we took a copy home with us. It was insurance. The other would be kept for church records. Now it was time to tell their parents.
