Opening scene from my book, The Mafia Heirs

Everything I knew, loved, cherished crumbled down around me when I was ten years old. And it started when the deep, gruff voice of my bodyguard boomed across Oakendale Park.

“Davina! Damon! We’re leaving in five minutes!”

“Yeah, yeah,” was all I said.

I loved him. I did, but sometimes he could be so annoying, especially when all I wanted to do was play with my best friend.

Today was his tenth birthday. We’d spent the entire day at the beach with our families, and now we were playing our favorite game…The Four Kingdoms.
