Its 06:00 in the morning, the cock's are screaming and the sun is coming up. A beautiful day as usual in the summers of Veneto. The sun is shining upon the riverside of Belluno's pier and two shadows reveal from the pier side. Two men are approaching the riverside and as soon as the cock's stopped screaming, a splash could have been heard from down the water. The two men dropped a bag into the river, turning around and walking away. Nothing strange for the citizens in Belluno, since everyone drops their trash in the river, so why wouldn't these two men? Anyways, its 12:00 in the afternoon, and the post guy just spread out the latest newspapers along the civilians in Belluno. The bells of the main church in Belluno start to ring and all the citizens arrive at the church, been surprised about who the individual is and how it could happen that such a person could die on such a beautiful day. The priest already knew what was happening, but he didn't want to reveal the information, since he knew that he could also end up in the river, just as many others did. Who did control this trash and for what reasons did these men do it? Could it be that the two men from earlier this morning have to do something with this death, or is it just another suicide?
It was clear that some men controlled and ruled the streets, since every investigation that has been send from Veneto to Belluno was cut off immediately after the investigation team has set their feet onto these streets. Why did this happen? Because none of these people wanted to lose their job or life with risking their permanent living for a ''non-important'' individual that didn't pay his debts on time. But what were these debts about? Well, let me tell you; every single individual in Belluno had to pay a sum amount of money each month to a man called Gennaro ''Jerry'' Giachetti, which was a well-known gangster back in the days within Italy. Jerry was the central point of the town, where people respected him for setting orders. It was something that even the mayor couldn't get himself done. Of course Jerry might do this in a slightly different way, but still it helps, doesn't it? That's also the reason why none complains or has a word against him, because everyone knows what would happen when they would stretch their tongues out too far. Some people didn't want to live like this anymore, since the sum amount of money fee that they paid was almost everything that these families had, so that they struggled with surviving from day to day. Some of these people even made a suicide upon themselves, asking their relatives to bury them on their own property, so that they would be remembered by their family.
Anyways, Jerry wasn't the only one that was ruling in the streets of Belluno, since he of course pulled his own strings, but also had his cousin by his side; called Carmine ''Junior'' Giachetti. And yes, they were family.. People were curious about if it's possible for a family to just grow instantly into a criminal background or there are links between situations or historical activities that lead them up been a gangster themselves afterwards. Well, for Jerry and Junior there were two reasons why they wanted to make themselves more clear in Belluno and show the people that they don't fear anyone or anything.
When Junior was 18 years old and Jerry was 20, they both lived together with their grandfather, since their parents left them as soon as they were born. Their grandfather told them later on that they weren't supposed to be brought to lives, but that it all happened by accident, so that was a main case why Jerry and Junior didn't even care anymore about others, since in their eyes, when their own parents don't care about them, why would some stranger do? Anyways, Junior and Jerry were both teenagers and were helping their grandfather with working on the farms; picking and sorting the olives from the trees that their grandfather has planted on his farm, and later on decided to make olive oil and sell it in large amounts to earn the profit of time for these to grow and the costs of the seeds. This packed out very well and the three of them; Junior, Jerry and their grandfather did have a pretty luxurious living, since they didn't struggle with food or drinks and had their own rooms. They couldn't imagine anything better than that…
It was a wonder, since Junior and Jerry were born on the same date, but though there were two years in between their age, but still it was special for them, since they were always together and did everything together, as well as their birthday. Unfortunately they couldn't expect their parents to congratulate them, but they even wouldn't like to see them ever again. It was 1st of March and Junior turned 19 while Jerry turned 21. They both woke up and walked out of their rooms, heading down the stairs to the lower basement of the living room where they would expect their grandfather to be awake and congratulate them with their birthday, but as soon as they arrived downstairs; there was no single trace of their grandfather. Both Junior and Jerry were screaming: ''Grandpa, where are you?!’’ Without success, Junior and Jerry walked out of their farmhouse and head down to the olive trees, to might be able to catch their grandfather picking the olives before they would awake, but also there wasn't any trace of him. Junior and Jerry started to worry and went down to the stable where their horses would be and as soon as they arrived at the stable, they saw some blood dots on the ground at the front entrance. Junior and Jerry were afraid of opening the door and have a look inside, because they couldn't even imagine their grandfather been dead inside. Even though Jerry was the older one, Junior and Jerry differed from each other when it came down to personalities, because while Jerry was the smarter one, Junior was the aggressive one which didn't shown as much fear as Jerry did. Junior opened the stable's door from the entrance and as soon as he opened it, he saw a man covered with blood onto the ground. When they identified the body, Jerry had to throw up. Junior turned himself around and embraced Jerry and told him not to think about it and just go get a fresh air. As he walked away towards the farmhouse, Junior entered the stable where he investigated the body which was later identified as his grandfather.
Junior picked up a shovel from the farmhouse and started to dig a hole within the field, where his grandfather used to spend almost whole his day. After Junior managed to dig a hole deep enough, he swung the shovel a-side and it dropped onto the ground near the hole. Junior went down towards the stable and managed to shut his nose's holes with his index finger, along with his middle finger, while he took a hold of his grandfather's body, dragging him out of the stable to the hole he has dug before. Junior released the hold of his grandfather's body and took a hold of the shovel which was lying on the ground, picking it up and pushing his grandfather's body slide into the hole by pushing it which made it fall onto the bottom. Junior filled the hole with the mud he had dig up before and buried his grandfather in his own property. After Junior buried his grandfather, he went back to the farmhouse where he noticed Jerry on the phone. Junior rushed towards Jerry and swung his hand against Jerry's hand which made Jerry drop the phone and Junior picked up the phone from the ground, seen that Jerry dialed the priest of the church in Belluno. Jerry threw the phone onto the ground, stamping it until it fell apart in pieces, and looked disappointed at Jerry.
From this point, Junior and Jerry had to settle themselves down, running the olive oil business on their own while been 19 and 21 years old. They had to take care about everything by themselves. This was the moment when their lives changed and they had to make their own decisions, due the accident and the historical situations, it made them to be ice-cold to others. They were able to take care of their grandfather’s business by themselves, and led them to bring the violence business into their neighborhood. At that point, Junior and Jerry began to extort competitors and eventually taxed the whole neighborhood. Beside of only gathering money from their neighborhood, they also bribed the law enforcement of Belluno to co-operate and overlook their activities.
It’s 21:00 in the afternoon and the sun just disappeared behind the horizon while two shadows reveal upon the backyard of the farmhouse where Junior and Jerry were playing cards on a table. Jerry flashing his cards on the table, which made Junior break out of angriness and thrown the cards onto the ground, lifting himself up from the chair and walk into the farmhouse. That evening, Junior planned a meeting with the mayor of Belluno about exporting some of his narcotics to France. Believe it or not; the mayor used to carry the drugs in bags what he declared to ‘’buy and deliver’’ olives to his mother in Paris. Straight out of bullshit, because the bags weren’t only simply filled with olives, they were small bolts filled with cocaine. Smart technique, isn’t it? Yes, because the mayor had built a trustworthy feeling among other governmental parties in Europe and because of this, he could take these packages along with him on his private jets where none even thought of checking out his bags. Anyways, Junior used to travel by boat where he didn’t want to show off his face a lot by traveling with airplanes or cars, instead he used the boat to travel without carrying anything. The mayor would just arrive there with his private jet where Junior used to wait him up and exchange the goods and in trade the mayor would receive a briefcase, filled with one hundred thousand euros.
Jerry used to hang around Belluno most of his time and also go to the church every single sunday where he sat down and confessed his deeds to the priest. The priest knew everything about Junior and Jerry, from their grandfather’s death till the day they were grown old enough to be running many businesses around by themselves. Of course they had some people working for them, but these people weren’t told anything about the inner circle of Jerry and Junior, but only about the money that they would receive and what exactly to do at what time, and so they did. Everything was simply settled and organized the way they wanted which is respect, power and money.
Though this evening was different, because it seemed like Junior didn't throw his cards from the table for just no reason. Jerry went into the farmhouse and walked up towards Junior which was sitting on the couch, watching television and having a glass of J&B. Jerry asked Junior ‘’ What is going on? ‘’, but Junior just glanced his eye-lid upon Jerry and remained to watch television without giving any answer. Jerry took the remote control and shut down the television immediately and asked Junior ‘’ What is wrong with you? ‘’ At this moment, Junior thrown his glass towards the television and couldn’t manage to hit it, so the glass fell upon the wall and spoiled onto the carpet that their grandfather made of a deer’s skin that he used to hunt down in his younger age and kept it his whole life. Junior stood up and shifted himself away from the couch, rushing onto Jerry and hitting his hands upon Jerry’s chest, pushing him to the entrance. Jerry was confused, so he didn’t react and got pushed against the door where he looked straight into Junior’s eyes, whilst Junior was expressing an angry facial expression with a ticking eyebrow. Junior suddenly released the hold of Jerry and turned himself around, stroking his hair in a panic way. Junior walked up towards the carpet, removed it aside from the ground where there was a small door that looked like the entrance of a vault. Junior opened the vault and removed two Desert Eagles.50 caliber out, shoving one over the ground towards Jerry and shifted the other into his pants. Jerry was looking at the gun that was given to him and crouched himself intentionally to pick up the gun.
At this moment, Jerry was confused about the situation and lowered himself down upon the couch. Junior stood onto the carpet, facing Jerry with a serious facial expression on his face. As Junior explained to Jerry that the mayor turned his back on them, because he wanted to take over their businesses and requested to give him a fifty percent of the monthly revenue. Jerry shook his head negatively while he knew what Junior wanted to do, since he didn’t take the guns out of the vault for no reason. Junior wanted to make an end in Italy and move out of here, since murdering the mayor of Belluno after all these years isn’t simply like ‘’killing a nobody’’. Jerry didn’t get the reason behind this, but he seemed like he didn’t care that much, because if Junior wanted to make a hit on the mayor, they had no other solution after all, but leaving the country to far away from Belluno.
- *Junior took out his phone and dialed the mayor’s number, waiting for a response until suddenly someone picked up the phone.*
Mayor: "Who is this?"
Junior: "It’s Junior, can you meet me at the gas-station near our farmhouse"
Mayor: "What’s with the urgency?"
Junior: "It’s about your request."
Mayor: "I will be there in five."
*As soon as he spoken out these words, he hung up the phone.*
Junior and Jerry stepped out of the farmhouse and stepped into their car, starting the engine and driving away from the farmhouse. Junior pedaled the gas, and went to the closest gas-station nearby, because this was already the place where he has organized a meeting with the mayor.This might also be the reason why Junior couldn’t concentrate during the game of cards earlier this evening and also couldn’t hit the television with the throw of his glass of Whiskey. Junior and Jerry went to the gas-station and parked their cars from a distance away of the gas-station.
Junior and Jerry, clothed in black suits were standing a-side a black Cadillac, smoking a cigarette and waiting for the mayor to pass by. Suddenly a black limousine passed by the intersection and parked at the gas-station. An older man exited the passenger’s cabin which unfortunately seemed to be the mayor. He looked around and didn’t notice Junior and Jerry, because they were standing away from the gas-station on a safe distance where they avoided to be spotted. So the mayor headed inside the gas-station’s shop. Jerry and Junior threw their cigarettes onto the ground, entered their car and as soon as they drove away, a huge explosive sound effect could of be heard on the background of the car. It was so beautiful that people thought it was the Chinese new year’s evening, but unfortunately it wasn't.. The whole gas-station went into ashes from that moment…
After the incident, there was no sign of Jerry neither Junior anymore around Belluno. The citizens were confused about what could have pointed their mayor to death, because they all knew that the mayor was involved in their criminal businesses. Even at the funeral, Jerry and Junior didn’t show up. Did this mean that Jerry and Junior left everything behind and moved out of Italy or were they just hiding? This is what the citizens were wondering about, because they knew the day would come when they had to pay for their monthly protection fee and either Jerry or Junior would show up again, but even this day passed and there was still no sign of the Giachetti cousins.
- *Junior and Jerry were sitting down on the bench in front of the Los Santos airport, waiting for a bus. Junior was smoking a cigarette while Jerry tapped his index finger onto Junior’s shoulder and coughed a few times before speaking.*
Jerry: "I have to confess something that you might not look forward hearing to, but I can’t keep it a secret any longer."
*Junior thrown his cigarette onto the ground.*
Junior: "What is it?"
Jerry: "Do you remember the priest that I used to visit every sunday? "
Junior: "Oh, Salvatore, what about him?"
Jerry: "I used to confess to him about almost everything that we used to do back in the days."
Junior: "You did what?!"
Junior stands up from the bench, approaching the static phone near the bus-stop, dialing a number and mumbles something in Italian before hanging up. After, Junior walks over to the bench, lowering himself down before resting his hand onto Jerry’s shoulder and saying ‘’You did what you did, and it’s over now. Let’s forget about our past and make our mind set on the future.‘’ Jerry answered ‘’You’re right Junior, let’s do that.‘’

This calls out for another dark horizon in Italy...
Its 19:00 PM as the sunset reveals a red glow upon the coffee farms in Brazil. A rough sound on the background can be heard as the wheels of an airplane reach the ground. Airplane ZX1337 arrives from Los Santos to Brazil. The door of the airplane opens as Jerry steps out and walks down the stairs towards the entrance of the airport. He then enters the airport as he takes his pair of briefcases from the baggage room and heads down to the airport’s exit. Jerry walks out of the airport as he notices a few cabs waiting in front of the entrance. He then walks up towards one of the cabs and asks for the closest hotel around. The taxi driver tells him that there is one just a few blocks from the airport, so Jerry took the cab to the hotel. As he arrived at the hotel, he took his briefcases and walked into the hotel and headed to the administration staff to rent a room. After receiving the keys of his apartment, he also asked the administration staff to inform him about recent activities around Brazil and about the activities that has been according to the past. The man shook his head negatively as Jerry took out a wad of money and offered it to the man. By this the man appreciated the offer more than the information he had and so did he tell him about a criminal organization that was operating on the east coast of Brazil.
Jerry managed to hire a vehicle and took off to the east coast of Brazil to find out who these men were, but before he even arrived at the east coast; he was blocked by two black vans where a group of men rushed to him and aimed their fire arms upon his car. He had to surrender and before he even could perform any action, the men walked up to his door as they pulled him out of the car. They didn’t ask any questions, but instead started to frisk the whole car where they finally found nothing, except a visa. They saw that he appeared to be a tourist, since the visa defined his name as; Anthony Beverson, which wasn’t a Brazilian name at all. After the men found out that he was a tourist, they began to push him with their fire arms straight into the van where they dropped him and took off.
After a few days, suddenly a newspaper has been dropped at the bar, also known as Belluno’s Ritrovo. On the front page it shows off that a man from Los Santos, called Anthony Beverson was found dead in the ocean after a few fishers eyed something floating on the water which didn’t look like a fish at all. Late in the morning Junior enters the bar as he finds the newspaper and went to the office as he lowers himself down at the couch, resting the newspaper on his lap and looks at the front page. He suddenly starts to stress out and walks circles in his office while holding his head, because he knew that Anthony Beverson was his cousin.
Sally, a made within the family entered the office as he saw that the bar was opened and none was behind the counter. Sally saw Junior walking in circles, but he didn’t even look up to Sally as he was frustrated about the death of his cousin. Sally asked him what was wrong, but Junior didn’t reply and after a while thrown the newspaper into Sally’s hands where Sally picked up the newspaper and saw the front page, but he wasn’t aware of Jerry’s false name been Anthony Beverson.
- Sally: ‘’What do I have to do with this?’’
Junior: ‘’You see that fucking front page? It’s my cousin; Jerry, you fucktard!’’
*Sally looked shocked and he immediately understood why Junior was frustrated.*
Sally: ‘’Let’s go and find these motherfuckers and kill them all?!’’
*Sally was an aggressive type who had experienced many fights, so that he didn’t think of solving problems with talking, but either using his bare fists or using any material that he could find around him. *
Junior: ‘’Sally, go buy me a fucking ticket to Palermo and do it fast!’’
*Junior withdrawn a wad of money from his pocket and tossed it over to Sally where Sally took a hold of this money and pocketed it. He nodded as he exited the office and went out to buy the ticket for Junior. After two hours, Junior met Sally on the airport in Los Santos where Sally gave him the ticket.*
Sally: ‘’Take care Junior and make sure that you come back.’’
Junior: ‘’Don’t worry, I will make sure that I will work this out and in the meanwhile, keep up the business running and let the others work as they have never worked before, but inform none about this.’’
Sally: ‘’Alright Junior, alright. Have a good one and take care.’’
Junior arrives at the airport in Palermo and walks up to a cab, asking the driver to take him to the southern point of Palermo. The driver nods and starts the fare after he turns on the engine and accelerates the cab through the streets of Palermo. After fourty five minutes, the cab stops. Junior looks out of his side window as he notices a huge mansion in front of the cab as he nods slowly and withdraws a few bucks out of his pocket and hands them to the taxi driver.
Junior exits the cab as he taps his left hand onto the roof. The car takes off while Junior is viewing the huge mansion that is located in front of him. He walks up to the entrance where he notices an older man exiting the main door of the mansion. As the man opens the gate, he then after spreads out his arms, embracing Junior and kisses both his cheeks as he welcomes him to his place.
Don Palentino leads Junior into the mansion where he shows some galleries before he leads him towards the living room and asks him to take a seat. Junior nods slowly and lowers himself down at the silken clothed couch, resting his hands on his lap.
- Don Palentino: ‘’So, what brings you here Junior?’’
*Junior explains the situation that happened with his cousin.*
Don Palentino: ‘’That’s horrible and I feel sorry for what happened, but I still don’t get the point on what brings you here.’’
Junior: ‘’I need your support as my right hand, because since Jerry won’t be around anymore, I will have to lead everything by myself and I don’t have the potential men around to fulfill a leading and trustful position as of yet.’’
*Don Palentino stands up and walks to the back of the couch where Junior would be sitting on. He rests his hand onto Junior’s shoulder.*
Don Palentino: ‘’I will support you under one exception; I want to keep my name as it is, because as you know; I have built up my name through the years and people see me as a man of honor. Anyhow, this doesn’t mean that I have left my family on my back, but I have just retired from the acting position and have appointed a trusted man who was by my side all the time during my activities in the criminal world. This means that I might could leave from time to time for a few days to here, because my responsibility is to have an eye out on the family and make sure that everything is running smoothly as it should.’’
Junior: ‘’That won’t be a problem. Also I would like to give you an offer for your support; you will receive fifty percent from my own earnings.’’
Don Palentino: ‘’I can’t promise you that I will accept your offer, because we’re all a family of god and the only gift we may appreciate is our health and respect among the people, isn’t it? You were always a good friend of mine and partners are to support each other in cases like this, ain’t that correct?’’
Junior: ‘’You were always a wise man and I respect that. I appreciate your words and I promise you that we’ll work out something.’’
Don Palentino: ‘’Meet me at the airport in Las Venturas in two days, because I have to sort some things around here before I can make sure that I am able to leave the place behind.’’
Junior: ‘’I will; just ring a phone when you arrive and I’ll make sure that you will be picked up and brought to my place.’’
After a few hours, Junior arrives in Los Santos and meets Sally in front of the airport, where he takes off to the bar and explains Sally about his meeting with Don Palentino and the changes which will be done...
