“Mas sabe el diablo por viejo
que por diablo.” – T
Mamá always said I was heavenly, but I don’t have the
heart to tell her that there’s nothing heavenly about
the son she birthed. A heavenly being wouldn’t kill
without mercy, and he certainly wouldn’t do it with a smile
on his face. A holy man would do right by others, but I’m
selfish, and I’ve always been this way.
But the thing that
might break her heart? It’s the fact that I fucking love it. All
of it. I love the feel of a gun in my hands and the thrill I get
every time I pull the trigger. I should feel regret whenever I
take a life, but I feel nothing at all. The only thought that
crosses my mind is when I can do it all over again. When I
can witness them taking their last breath as I stand there
watching the light leave their eyes.
Maybe I was born defective.
I do love my mamá and my sister Lia, but that’s the extent
I was made for this job. For this life of sin, power, and
I will never forget the day I was made.
“Ya eres un soldado Sandoval.” You’re a Sandoval soldier now.
A dark voice says from behind me. “It’s about fucking time you
start acting like one.”
I’m a soldier for the familia now.
And I was.
I was made the day of my fifteenth birthday. I tortured a
soul for hours until I took her life in the name of the familia.
A woman. A woman who decided to take for granted
everything the Sandoval family did for her and decided she
wanted more. She lied and stole from us, and for that, we
made an example of her. You don’t fuck with us.
There’s a code in the familia. You live as a rat; you die like
one too. No mercy.
That was not the first time I’d ever seen a dead body. I’ve
witnessed both my tío, Gustavo, and my papá taking lives
and torturing both men and women. It does not matter. I’m
no stranger to the dark side of the criminal organization my
family runs. By the age of fourteen, I’d already killed twice
but never again after that. My guess is that both my papá and
tío were making sure I was ready for the moment I was
made. Making sure I could handle this shit. I can.
I was born
to be at the top. The little kids I went to school with dreamed
of growing up to be healers or policemen. Not me. I always
wanted to be the villain. The bad buy. The alternative always
seemed so bland and mundane. Milo, my cousin and tío
Gustavo’s only son, and I used to play cop and thieves when
we were kids, and I chose the bad guy every time. Mayhem is
in my bloodstream.
