And so it was that both Dons faced each other, mano y mano, on the pier where it had all started. Beguile's Mistress, the Linguine Don, and Mithlomwen, the Cannoli Don, stood ten paces apart, while the wind whipped spitefully in their hair. The atmosphere was tense; it seemed as if the entire city held its breath while it waited to see what would transpire.
"So it has come to this," said Beguile's Mistress.
"So it has," declared Mithlomwen, flatly.
"There has been a lot of blood shed in the war. Too much blood."
"Too much," agreed the Don of the Cannolis.
"Let us come to an agreement, then, and put an end to it. Let there be no more fighting between our families," said the Linguine Don.
"It is only fair."
Suddenly, there was a loud ~BANG!~ behind the two women. Mithlomwen reached for the .45 Beretta in her purse, while Beguile's produced the Glock from her coat pocket. They drew their weapons simultaneously, sighting the other, their fingers tightening on the triggers...
...and nothing happened. Very slowly, both women lowered their guns. The loud explosion turned out to be nothing more than an old truck backfiring. Smirking, Mithlomwen extended her hand; Beguile's Mistress took it.
And from that day on, there was war between the two most prominent families no more. The Cannolis and the Linguines, or what remained of them, put aside their grievances and agreed that, from that day onward, they would settle their disputes diplomatically. Little Italy breathed a sigh of relief, knowing that the bitter feud had finally, and at long last, come to an end.
Of course, there were always other factions vying for power, other groups who would love to carve out a niche for themselves at the expense of either of Little Italy's most famous crime families...
