The Pint was a small pub deep in the heart of Hell's Kitchen, a place where Luciano did business regularly, not to mention that he was there every night before closing to have a drink before he went home. When it came to side dealings with the union leaders, or working with the other bosses of other families, Luc knew that The Pint was a safe place to go that served as neutral turf. But tonight he was alone, working in one of the back booths on some paperwork that he had to take care of. He sat with a bottle of grey goose and a glass with some ice in one of the back booths. He had his glasses resting on the bridge of his nose as he looked down, clearly distracted by what was in front of him on the table wearing a pair of black slacks and a white button down shirt. The top two buttons of the shirt were undone showing the slight hint of one of his tattoos. It wasn't busy, since it was late, but there were still a few rowdy drunks in the front along the main bar.

A Sexy brunette walks in wearing a navy strapless cotton dress, a silk throw-on style jacket with a beautifully embroidered ram image on the back, and 4.5 inches gold leather strappy heels. She was looking for some one. The face looked so familiar. It was Rosalina. She hardly came to this part of town. Rosalina got word that some one special to her was back. She looked around searching.
All she could see were drunken fools. Rosalina takes a seat at the main bar. She ordered a tequila sunrise and a shot of vodka. Rosalina looked up to the sky and toasted. Likes she was tosting a lost love. She downs the shot and sighs. She didn't know what to do. Rosalina knew who she was looking for but didn't seem him yet....

He was frustrated with the work that he couldn't comprehend. A lot had happened within the past few weeks, with the family business and all. He poured some vodka into his glass and swished it around the ice to chill it a bit. If it was one thing he disliked, it was warm vodka. He swallowed the liquid from the glass and sighed into his hand as he pulled off his glasses and rubbed his face. He looked up and around the bar, it didn't hit him right away but when he looked over at the main bar he saw an attractive brunette putting back a shot. He looked down at his work in front of him before it finally clicking. He looked up fast, almost fast enough to get whiplash. He didn't think he would ever see her again, it was Rosalina. He thought about getting up but called over a waitress instead and had a glass with ice delivered to Rosa with directions for the waitress to extend and invitation for her to come over and have a drink with the man in the back booth.

Rosalina put back another shot. She was happy that she had a babysitter tonight. She was looking for the man that fathered her child almost five years ago. all she remembered is he fancied this place a lot. before she went up in the world being a doctor and stuff she use to come here a lot. But now that she moved back she had to find that man again. She then got a the glass of ice and the directions. She smiled and knew who sent it. He did the same thing five years ago.
A smile comes to her face. She grabs her purse and drink. She walks toward the man looking sleek and sexy. She sits down and smiles. She bats her pretty green eyes and laughs. " I knew it was you. You did the same thing when we first met." She says as she sips her drink.

He used to bartend at this bar, it was his first gig when he moved to the states, so it was no coincidence that he stuck around most nights. He had been working behind the bar the first night he met Rosalina and had sent the glass of ice over. He rolled up the sleeves on his shirt as he watched her walk over to his booth, it was the best view in a long while. He opened the bottle of vodka with a smile and added more to his glass, " I was hoping it might trigger a memory..God, Rosalina Solo..how've you been?" He asked her as he moved more to one side of the booth so she could sit and be comfortable.

Rosalina smirks and nods. "I am good. I finally became a doctor. we also have a daughter." she said. She didn't want to throw him for a loop. But he knew she was pregnant when they broke up. These two have a checkered past. She was his mistress. she ended up pregnant and she moved away. Yeah Isabella doesn't have his last name. But that was the cover story. She knew he couldn't betray his wife at the time.
Now she didn't know his status now. But she was single. She had broken up with Rios because of his life. she couldn't deal with it. The killings the people that were gonna harm her and her daughter. That is way they stayed with her dad. Rosalina sips her drink again.

"Congrads on the doctor thing." He was in a state of almost shock for a moment as her words replayed in his head. He had lost his wife and two young sons but now was gaining a daughter. He was stupid when he was cheating on his wife with Rosalina, he had been in love with her and during that time regretted not leaving his wife for her."Well your certainly blunt about things, its nice to see you too." He said drinking down the rest of the vodka in his glass. He filled the glass with more before taking a sip. He looked over at Rosa, "What's her name?" He asked her.

"Luciano... When have I not been blunt. I will tell you the straight truth and you know this. You have known this." Rosalina says as she finished her drink. When it came to her daughter she had to be honest. She licks her lips and the says " Her name is Isabella Angelic Morrow. I would have given her your last name but I knew your wife would freak. speaking of which how is she?"
Rosalina didn't know what had happened they were just reconnecting and talking. She looked into his eyes and she remembered their time together

"Isabella's a beautiful name." After he had left Rosa and the baby he had tried to find them once or twice, but gave up whenever he got close. "I wouldn't have cared though, she should have my last name..she's my daughter." He said trying to have the fact sink into his mind quicker. When she asked about his wife he finished off his drink and then poured another short one. He drank most of that one as well as the silence set in. He looked up and over at her with a emotionless expression, "Abela passed away, there was a fire at our hamptons home and she was there with my two boys, they're gone now too." He told her before going back to his drink.

she felt so bad. She had no ideal. " I am so sorry I had no ideal." She said and she sipped her drink. She felt so dumb now. She gets the waitress to bring her a bottle of Jack Daniels. Yeah she liked vodka. But as of late whiskey eased her pain and made the day go by faster. The waitress brings it over and she pours some in the glass of ice that Luciano originally sent over. She takes a sip and then removes her little jacket.

He took the whiskey bottle and after finishing off the rest of the vodka in his glass, tapped it off with some of the whiskey. He was a big fan of whiskey and spent a lot of nights alone with a bottle of Jack Daniels on one of his patios. "It's fine, i'm finished mourning and ready to move forward." He said. He still wore his wedding ring on a gold chain around his neck and had gotten a new tattoo over his heart with his two sons initials. He was trying to get his mind away from that though, if he were to let it fester it would surely end up in a violent situation that he was hoping to avoid. "So tell me more about our child." He said, looking up at her with a smile.

Rosa sips a little more whisky. Her thought was why do you wanna know you were never there. but she kept that to herself. " She is a very cgorgeous girl. She has my looks but she has your eyes. that is no denying she is yours because her attitude is some what like yours. " she said smiling. She played around with her necklace. it was a gold chain with a crucfix on it. Lucanio gave it to her before she left to have there baby.

He recognized the necklace immeadiatly and a smile came to his face as he glaced up at her, " I should have been there, I know its hard to believe now-but you have no idea how much I've regretted leaving you with the baby." He told her as he leaned back into the booth with his arms folded over his chest.

Rosalina just shakes her head. She kisses the cruifix. She then takes another drink. She sighs starts to fan herself. To her it was getting warmer. " It is okay. you did what you did to protect your family. I understand and forgive you" Rosa says as she finishes her glass off. She didn't want anymore. she was done. her body and mind kept wanting to kiss him. But she didn't know if he would accept it. Rosa knew he was mourning his loss

"There were so many times that I wanted find you, I would love to make it up to you and Isabella." He told her as he finished off his drink and moved his glasses and papers closer to the edge of the table. He always had a habit of organizing things out of his way when he was nervous. " Let me make it up to you, let me make you happy." He told her, he didn't know what he could do for her, but by losing one family, all he wanted to do now was gain another... gain one that should have had a presence there all along.
