“Mr. Gesatti, are you okay?” I asked.

“Maura…” he whispered.

At the sound of her name, all the brothers froze and looked at their father.

“Che cosa, papa?” said Donato.

When they turned around, on the other side of the glass door of the restaurant was a

woman in a sleeveless black dress. She was in her sixties, and despite her age, I could

tell that she had been beautiful when she was young—she still was. I remembered the

photo of her that I found in Donato’s nightstand. The years had passed, but still her eyes

were lost, empty. Her hair was still black and long but with dashes of gray.

She just stood there, and Lorenzo was frozen in place. I could hear his heartbeat

quicken when he let out a simple sigh…

Donato marched slowly to the door. I did not want to even breathe.

“What the fuck are you doing here?” he demanded, his eyes suspicious.

“Let me in,” she responded, completely ignoring Donato’s attitude. She stepped

gracefully around him and walked toward us, studying our faces calmly.

“Lorenzo,” she said, and nodded her head slightly. Don Lorenzo stood there like a

lifeless statue. “Giovanni, Vincenzio, and you,” she said turning toward me, “you must

be Tatiana.” The silence was deafening. Gio and Vin’s eyes were full of questions while

they stared at her in shock. An unknown ghost has just walked in the restaurant and

they looked like they wanted to say so much but simply couldn’t.

I was just worried about how D was going to handle all of this. His blue eyes were full

of defiance instead of despair. I could hardly recognize my sweet Donato. He stood

there, protecting his brothers once again, as he has all his life.

“Mom?” Vinny managed to say.

“Do not call her that!” D blurted out. “Why are you here?” He went up to his mother

defiantly, like a lion protecting his young.

“I wanted to meet you all, and…” she trailed off in a low voice.

“No. Tell them why you are here! Damn it!” D shouted. The whole restaurant

trembled at his tone.
