Last Mile to Paradise

Alexandre Ottoveggio

Marco, a man of about 45 years old, had lived a life filled with turmoil and uncertainty. Adopted as a teenager by an American Sicilian family deeply involved in organized crime, he was raised under the watchful eye of Michael Luchini, the powerful boss of the family. Despite being considered as Michael's own son, Marco's childhood was far from idyllic.

For 25 long years, Marco faithfully served the Luchini family, carrying out their illicit activities with unwavering loyalty. However, the weight of his past and the burden of his actions began to take their toll on him. Marco reached a breaking point and made a life-altering decision - he would leave the family behind forever.

But leaving a crime organization is no easy feat. The Luchini family was notorious for its ruthlessness and its unwillingness to let anyone escape their clutches. Marco knew that he possessed valuable information that could bring down the entire organization. He understood that his departure would not be taken lightly.

Marco embarked on a journey across Europe, seeking solace and refuge from his troubled reality. He knew that he had to distance himself from everything he had ever known if he wanted to have any chance at a new life.

Marco is constantly looking over his shoulder, he couldn't shake off the feeling that he was being pursued. The Luchini family's reach extended far beyond what he had anticipated. They were relentless in their pursuit of him, determined to eliminate any trace of his existence.

Marco's escape became a constant battle between survival and evasion. He changed identities frequently, never staying in one place for too long. He relied on his instincts and street smarts to navigate through this treacherous game of cat and mouse.

Days turned into weeks as Marco continued to be on the run/ But he knew that he could never truly escape the Luchini family.

But deep down, Marco knew that he could never go back. He had seen too much, done too much. Leaving was his only chance at redemption, at finding some semblance of peace in a world that had been tainted by violence and corruption.
