Blame It on the Shame (Blame It on the Shame: Lou-Lou and Ricardo's Story #1) (35 page)

I just didn't realize how special.

have been the mother of my son. There's no doubt in my mind, that
son would be the most powerful DeLuca yet.

Even more powerful than me.

So powerful, it would erase the humiliation Ricardo has inflicted and poisoned my legacy with.

I eagerly await the day that I'll be able to go against the DeLuca council and kill him...right after killing those two pissants he calls 'brothers.'

Fuck, I may just do that anyway...but first; I have to ensure the prophet was telling the truth about my Lucianna.

And in order to do that—I need to enlist the help of the ancestors of the witches who first put the curse on my family.

Unfortunately, they're being less than cooperative—which is why I intend to start killing them by one...until they have no choice but to help me.

After that, I'll approach the DeLuca council with my plan and there won't be a goddamned thing they can do about it...because I'm the one who found a way to undo the hex.

I ignore the sounds of Marlene choking as I come down her throat all while picturing my Lucianna carrying the next DeLuca son—the son who will
the one I have now.

The prophet's words echo in my head and I feel my new found power wash over me.


Your dark-haired beauty called Lucianna is the key to lifting the DeLuca curse

but be forewarned; her power poses a great threat to you

for your darkness will be passed along to your offspring.


I'm counting on it.

And truly, I thank you all from the bottom of my heart and the depths of my soul.
