Mafia "Bang, bang, bang!" Francesco fell to the ground with a thunderous thud. His body on top of Fabio's, who was taken out only moments earlier. Marco was the only one left; this attack has completely gone wrong. He hid behind a crate in the dark room, surrounded by five other men, all his compatriots have been killed or seriously injured. "Bang, bang" Marco shot blankly around the room; his inexperienced had just cost him dearly, those two shots gave a clear indication of his whereabouts. One of the men crept up behind him, and smashed his solar plexus with a baseball bat. Soon all five men were circling around him; an elbow struck him in the face, at this point his vision was blurred he couldn't see clearly anymore.

He was led to a nearby car, and was told to drive to Fifth Avenue at Central Park, South New York. When they got there they were immediately ambushed by a ten men who were armed. "Over there!!" Francesco commanded, pointing at a dark, gloomy building. Marco, Fabio and the other three men followed closely behind.
