Well this is a side story to the Sinners
Wrote the ending in this one
The stained rose
The story continues
"I remember when I was little and my grandfather used to tell these horror stories with great assassins , that seemed to belong to a distant, far away, place and time. In time I found out that it was not just a bedtime story , but a part of the bloody past of the Marsino family. When we became fifteen, my grandfather told us the truth, or at least part of it and it seems that even after 40 years, the past still makes incursions in the present."
This is a small paragraph from an old article in the local news paper, dated twenty years ago. My family history has a dark and sad past, like a white rose stained with blood.
At that time there was a war between the criminal organizations, which worked in the shadows, and the lords of the streets. The article is long and has a painful meaning for all those who lived those fearfull days, and still fear that the past will catch them too, like it did twenty years ago with the biggest criminal organization this town has ever seen. Few of the organization remained. One of them is the granddaughter of the most powerful man in the Marsino clan, the head of the clan, and another one is his right arm at that time, Oscar del Mar. They are my parents. I don't know if itís good writing this diary but i'm afraid that in the end nobody will remember those who lost their lives, those who shed blood for my grandfather, deceived and murder the innocents just to make more money, so that he can become even more powerful. I, for one, left this cursed family as a child. I wished Iíd never known the sins my parents committed. I, someday, might have to pay for their sins, but first i'll continue running and hiding like a coward, even if i don't want it. But i can't look my parents in the eyes anymore, because of what theyíve done. I'll send this diary to someone no longer among us, who lives in the shadows...
All started more than sixty years ago. At that time the father of Federico Marsino, my great-grandfather father , was a successful persecutor, he was trying to put in jail the most powerful criminal organization of that time, led by a man called Shashi. Things didn't went the right direction and Federico's family ended up being killed by a women called Azelle, my grandfathers fiance at that time. The police investigation showed that she was an assassin, hired by Shashi. She killed all the family members with only one sword, on which the following words were written " The path of the dragons". What she left behind were stained petals of white roses. My great-grandfather became thirsty for revenge and formed his own organization, which in time became the largest criminal organization from the " City of Lights", how all like to call it. He forgot his purpose, little by little being swallowed by darkness, being more greedy for money, for power, forgetting about his own family. When his son died, he did not even cry.
After forty years of murders and greed for power, the past just wouldnít rest still. The organization, which he said he will destroy, came to finish what has been started so many years ago. The first ones to fall where the Giulianos. Their job was alcohol trading. The Marsino organization was formed out of other two clans besides this one, the Belotelli clan and the Del Mar clan, which were working directly under Federico, dealing drugs, money counterfeiting and murders. All started with a murder in one of Giuliano's warehouses. Everybody was killed in a brutal way. The killers left only a sign. A white rose on the table. The next victim was Giuliano Leon, found with a dagger in his heart, while on his house door was written in blood " we have your grandchildren". They were Sebastian and Esthelle Marsino, at that time only seventeen years old. Oscar, who was in charge of their protection, was captured alongside them. He was the head of a small secret organization called" The Scorpions", that only he and Marsino knew about.
The news papers released at that time affirmed that the police could not find any lead about the killers and were the teenagers have been taken. In an interrogation, Marsino told everything to the detective who was in charge of the investigation, an old friend of his. He said that he has to pay for his sins and that they won't stop until all members of the Marsino clan are dead, and that the killers sign is always a white rose stained with the blood of the victims. The only lead came from a young officer which was always near the detective: the killers arrived at an old house, in the forest near the city. Marsino knew too. When the police arrived, all the members of the Scorpion organization were dead. Near their bodies petals of roses were still falling, like tears.
The detective rushed trough the forest despite the heavy rain. He could distinguish a silhouette among the trees. It was Oscar del Mar carrying, in his arms holding the gentle body of Esthelle. They were the only ones which survived the attack. On the same day Federico Marsino found his end by the hands of the people he loved.
The assassins let the siblings themselves decide which of them was to survive. They threw them only one gun, to see which oneís faster at shooting the other one. The faster was my mothers brother. He shut himself and let her leave. His body has never been found by the police, only a white rose was left behind.
But these were all lies that my mother told the police. The truth is other one. They both lived. My uncle killed his grandfather pulling the trigger while looking right in his eyes, without shedding a tear for him. Federico was a sinner. A sinner who killed his mother which by mistake killed his own son and tried to cover it by saying he loved his grandchildren. He only wanted their mothers money. Once Federico killed him, was no more coming back. The killers were hired by their mothers family.
My mother swore she will never tell the truth about her twin brother and that she never take the same path as Federico. But the taste for money was to high. After three years she became the head of the new family del Mar. At first she only wanted to protect what she loved, but in a end she lost her way under the influence of Oscar.
This little diary, or better this letter is for you uncle. All i want to tell you is that she really loved you. She loved me too, but, in the end, she was swallowed by the darkness. I ran from her because she said that Iílli betray her by telling the police all i know about her affairs.
I only wanted to save her. I ran like a coward but what wanted to save, destroyed me in the end, with only one bullet. I don't have anymore strength to run... Iíll just die here in this garden of roses, hoping that you, someday, will receive my thoughts.
Kill the man who destroyed our family, my father, Oscar ... and if i'll still be alive i'll thank you someday, Sebastian...
