THE GARDENS OF THE CROWN PRIME CASINO
For the first time in the history of the Casino, The Gardens were closed off to all. Currently, the only people allowed were members of the Family, or those who had been given an invite as an asset, or as a potential associate to the Family. The Gardens themselves were decorated and adorned with various forms of lights, and three massive tables were formed into a squared "U" shape. While everything else within the Gardens was open, the Shops were closed for the most part. At best, the clothing stores and shops were open for making last minute changes to wardrobes, and the like. It was known that every single employee was bustling around and about to get all of the minor details fixed, and to set out the various flatware, utensils, bowls, glasses of all kinds for almost every kind of drink the Casino would offer.
Reason being? This was a closed doors celebration for the Family. Firstly, for the Members who have worked and proven their worth. Over time, many of these members have moved up in the ranks and received a spot that would give them more honor to their name, as well as profit themselves, and the family. While those who did not want to be put onto the listing as receiving their "promotion," the only one that most people would come for, was the naming of the new Don.
Rumors of the Donna had surfaced that she had passed, or had left the Family. I stood there in my room. Alone. Knowing the full details of her departure. While I would never speak them to anyone, not even Crocell, I didn't not because I chose too, but because it was asked of me. The Donna was only known as such by all. However, I was told what her true name was. Even more so, her decisions and why she had sent me the letter and her choice of crowing me her successor. This entire Family, All of her assets, were bestowed to me as an inheritance.
I can't lie. I about pissed myself scared with that idea. Ever since Ember and I had joined the Family as Soldiers, and eventually I was passed down the rank of Capo, becoming the Donna's personal Bounty Hunter and Errand boy, and now to be the Alpha of this Family Pack? I was honored in ways I could never have thought of. I was also scared for Ember, myself, and the rest of the Family. Would I do them justice, or would I fail and drive the last nail into the coffin? It set my nerves on edge. Ember opened the door and peeked her head in. I could hear the door opening and quickly hid my face thinking it was someone else. However, as I saw her, I removed my hands and my mask.
Smiling lightly as she walked over and just hugged me. I returned it as she just stood there. Holding onto me and wondering how we got into this position. I breathed in and rubbed her shoulders. Backing up from her hug to arm's length and nodding my head. Letting her know that I had this under control. The look I received questioned that, but trusted me. Without a single word spoken, she left to inform Ivory, as well as the others that I would be leaving the room soon.
Sighing, I straightened my suit jacket, and made sure that the tie I wore was fixed perfectly. My hands shaking as I placed the white crystal mask over my face. Adjusting slightly to fit without hindrance, and opened the door into the Gardens.
TL:DR - Auberon gets ready for the Celebration of the Crowing to the Don. Gardens are closed down for the Ceremony.
