Somewhere in Manhattan...
A small explosion is heard inside a speakeasy, and soon, flames begin to rise from the building. It is a known operation of the Lucatelli Crime Gang. Whether the incident can be pinned down on Manzolillos, Burkes, or someone else entirely is unknown...
Rettaroli was in a hideout when he heard the explosion. Running outside, he sees the speakeasy on fire. He goes to inform the boss.
Angelo is informed of the explosion. Luckily none of his high ranking members was injured or killed, the casualties only being a few low gangsters.
"What the f*ck." Said Angelo.
"I know right. Who in their right mind would blow up one of our operations in our territory." Said Guido.
"Anybody know who had the audacity to do this?" Asked Marco.
"Its either those goddamn Manzolillo bastards from Brooklyn or those Burkes." Said Angelo.
"I thought you cut a deal with em Manzolillos. What happened?" Asked Guido.
"I did. Maybe Vespasiano wasn't too happy about our deal. Either that or it was the goddamn Burkes, which wouldn't surprise me." Responded Angelo.
Vespasiano awaits the news of the operation from his home. Alberto walks in the door. Vespasiano looks up.
"How'd it go? You get it done?
"Yeah, it went real smooth. Gamberelli and I got outta there with plenty-a-time!"
"Do they suspect anything"
"No, I doubt they suspect a thing. We got 'em so deep in Burke territory, they'll surely think it was them Irish."
"Marvelous. Just grand. Is the next stage of our plan all ready to go?"
"Sure is, we're just waiting for the order."
"We begin tonight. Make the necessary preparations."
"It wouldn't be the first time somebody attacked an operation." Carnelli said. He had nothing to do with the attack, but worried his operations were in jeopardy too.
Rettaroli sat across from the boss. "But its the biggest. Every gangster in Manhattan will be looking for a scapegoat. And we might be in the crossfire."
Carnelli looked up at his best man on the ground. "Just... Do what you need to do in order to protect our assets. And don't screw anyone over doing so..."
"You got it boss." Rettaroli got up and went off to the nearest hideout.
Most of the high-profile Lucatelli gang members have gone into hiding in secret private hideouts, some not even in Manhattan. The Manzolillos are heavily suspected for the explosion and they have been on high alert.
