Flash Fiction: Wine Ceremony

Cheers to The Barzelli Family!

Please enjoy the finest wine and the most scrumptious food I have to offer. I, Don Barzelli present you all with gifts on this joyous occasion of our annual wine ceremony. My chefs have informed me that the food they have prepared, far exceeds the standards of any restaurant in this city. Dig in!

Ah! Paulo, good job with those judges, you have earned this wine you are sipping on. Grenario, my top caporegime, the way you dealt with those Russians was sublime. Do enjoy the salmon. Oh, there he is, little Mario. Pigging out on the exotic fruits there. Tell me, Mario do you like them? Yes, of course you do. Answer this though, do you know what kind of fruit Eve ate? An apple, no? You see Mario, Eve ate the fruit of temptation, and temptation got her banished from Eden.

Why did you sell your family out for a handful of cash? Does The Barzelli Family mean so little to you? You saddened me, boy. You know what comes next don’t you?

Yep, take him away, and feed him to the fishes…
