 Vinny was screaming at me.

 "You call yourself my brother, yet stab me painfully in the back! I have a mind to kill you here and now!" he threatened, a menacing look on his face, his eyes shooting daggers at me.

 I rubbed my face where the blow had landed, noting the blood on my hand, oozing out of a cut on my cheek.

 My injuries were the least of my worries. Vinny scared the shit out of me, with the crazy look in his eyes as if he really wanted to carry out his threat of killing me. Our parents had gone out and apart from Jossy, our youngest sister, who was downsides watching TV, we were alone in the house.

 Vinny was not naturally violent but who knew what a man could do who had been double crossed in love as I had done to him.

 I had stolen his fiancé afterall! What man would take that lying down?

 But I was not ready to go down without a fight. I was too young to join my ancestors yet so I chose the path of negotiation, appealing to his brotherly love and affection for me.

 I knelt down and in a supplicating manner, said:

 "Vinny, don't do this! Remember I'm your only brother! I'm sorry for what I did to you, taking Ibiere from you but please consider our parents, our mother! What'll happen to them all if you kill me?" 

 The menacing look was still there on his face, his mouth twisted in an angry manner, his right hand fisted up as if ready to throw another Mike Tyson-like punch at me that would send me to the great beyond...
