PostSubject: Dante Castellano's Hearing   Tue Apr 17, 2012 1:10 am

I pulled up to the building where Dante's hearing was going to be. I wasn't the only player on the team who was showing up to support Dante. Almost the whole team was here, because none of them thought that he should be punished for being with his girlfriend when she had almost died. But apparently that wasn't good enough for the board and it wasn't good enough for Jules either. He was going to do his best to get Dante kicked off the team, and if he did that, I'd be walking too, as would most of the team, and we would forfeit the Super Bowl, and no one wanted that.

I walked up to Dante, seeing other team memebers at the top of the stairs by the door to the front of the building. "We're all here to support you, Dante. I know this is the least of your cares right now, but none of us are going to let you be kicked off the team and none of us are going to let you not play with us Sunday at the Super Bowl. We'll all walk if they suspend you or worse. We're all behind you, man."

"I don't care." I muttered. "I don't care about any of this. I just want my family back. Let him suspend me. Let him take away my career. As long as he brings Bianca home." I glanced back at the team, my heart warming at the support my fellow players were showing me. "I appreciate you and the rest of them being here for me but at this point all I want is Bianca... and to beat the living shit out of that rotten bastard." I walked up the steps and headed inside, my palms shaking.

I walked into the boardroom, looking at the other board members. I shook each and every one of their hands before looking up and seeing Coach Luis walk in. I headed over to him, holding out my hand to him. "Thank you for being here today, Luis. Hopefully this won't take long and you can get back to your life."

"Thank you, Mr. Foxworth." I said, shaking his hand tightly. "I just want us all to take care of this issue and go home to our families." I glanced back when I heard the door open and saw Dante waltz in, a crew of people following in after him, in fact, most of all the people following in after him was members of our team. I turned back toward Domonique. "I'm going to go say hello to my players. It was nice seeing you." I walked away, coming up toward Dante and Jackson. The closest boneheads in the damn place. "Morning to both of you. I hope this comes out in your favor Dante. You know I love you on the team." I glanced over at Jackson. "Tell Abby I hope she didn't have too bad of an evening in jail." I looked back at Dante who was shaking in anger. "Bianca says good luck too. Boys, I appreciate you all being here to support your team mate." I turned, and walked over to sit at the table, my smile big.

God, I wanted to pond that motherfucker into the ground. I knew Dante wanted to as well. He had fucked with both of our women and he played things off so cooly. I turned to Dante, holding his arm. "Lets just get through this damn thing. Then, once its over, we'll jump him! No way in hell I am going to let him get away for what he's done to Abigail, and with any luck, you'll have ZhiZhi back with you and your little girl tonight!"

"I'm going to kill him." I barely registered what he said after saying Bianca's name. All I saw was red, my fists clamped at my side, my fingers digging so hard in my palms I was sure they'd bleed. I wanted to beat him and make him eat his own dick... no I wanted to kill the bastard and burn him over an open fire, put the fire out and piss all over his remains. That's what I wanted and I wanted be satisfied till I made sure that exact thing happened. But when Jackson grabbed my arm and brought my back to reality I knew I had to think about this. I had to play this cool. No matter how much the bastard pissed me off. I let go of a shaky breath, walking slowly toward my table. "What's this I hear about jail? Since when does Abby go to jail? She's pregnant what could she possibly do?" I laughed, it was bitter and full of venom but I was trying really fucking hard not to lose my shit. I glared at Jules before taking a seat.

I sat at the middle of the long table ahead of the other two tables as Dante Castellano sat at the table across from the table Luis sat down at. The rest of the team members sat down in the seats set up behind the tables. I looked over at the other board members and then back out at the rest of them. "I'd like to thank all of you for being here today. It is an unfortunate matter when we have to come together for things like this, so we'll try to make things as quick as possible for you. so we can all get back to our lives." I turned to Luis, nodding to him. "Mr. Luis, could you please state for the board why we are here this morning and what action you'd like to see taken. After which, we will hear from Mr. Castellano and any other team members who wish to speak on behalf of either Mr. Castellano or Coach Luis. Coach."

I stood up, tugging at my tie slightly, fixing it. "For the record, I'm Julius Luis and I'm the coach of the Jets football team, and I'm the one who put word in about Dante Castellano missing games and practices. I was also the one who warned him face to face that if he didn't come to practice that I would be forced to bring him to the attention of the board. He told me to do what I must.. so I did. He did not have sufficient reason to miss the practices, and he especially did not have reason to miss the game. Stated by the board themselves players should only miss games or practices if a family member passes away, or if the player themselves are either injured or sick, and seen by the doctor for the team. Or if a family member is sick. None of those things happened to Dante Castellano. He refused to come to the practice and games because of a personal matter. And with that said I believe in my heart that he no longer loves the game as the rest of the players do and he should be suspended and replaced. I think the board for listening to my complaint."

Before Dominique Foxworth began to speak, I told Dante I'd tell him about Abigail after things were done here. I assured him that she was alright NOW and that everything was going to be alright. I was still pissed about the whole thing, but I would take care of it later, when Dante and I beat his sorry ass for being such a goddamned dick.

Fuck, I wanted to pummel the dick. He had no idea what he was talking about. Yes, ZhiZhi wasn't Dante's family PER SE, but she was his fiancee and the mother of his child, that's as close to family as most of the players on the team had. Not all of them were married, but some of them had situations similiar, fiancee's or girlfriends who had children, and I was sure he wouldn't do the same to any of them. This was all because he had a thing for ZhiZhi and he wanted to punish Dante because she loved Dante and not him. If ZhiZhi could remember anything, there's no way she'd be with that fucker.

I stood up after Julius did and uncurled my fingers, trying to relax. "Okay, so, I'm going to be dead honest with the board and let you all know that everything Coach Luis has said is true. I did miss fifteen practices. I did miss three games. However, one thing that he didn't mention was the actual reason was bigger than a personal matter. I don't think anyone in this court room would call their fiancee being shot in her head, and fighting for her life just a personal matter, right?" I scratched my chin, sighing. "Bianca, Isabella as some know her as, was going to be my wife. She's the mother of my child and she was in a coma for nearly a month, she was fighting for her life, fighting for each breath she took and my coach, who as most know use to date Bianca, and should know better than anyone why I couldn't drag myself away from her. Every second was precious. Every second mattered and I wasn't moving away from her side. Not for anything. And the fact that a man who use to love Bianca as much as I do can not understand how a woman who is not legally my family yet is still considered my family I don't know what to say. I wish he had enough heart to give me just a little bit of compassion. So, that's what I ask here, for compassion, because I had to miss those practices. Because I had no option because my family was hurt. My family was dying." I sat, folding my arms over my chest.

I looked between the two of the men and then back to the team members sitting behind them. "Are there any of you who would like to say something for either Coach Luis or Dante Castellano?"

A few of the guys stood up, vouching for me, even tossing out they'd do the same thing if put in that situation before letting Jackson stand up. I turned, looking back at him. I was thankful for my teammates, even if my fucking coach was a douchebag.

I stood, taking a deep breath as I stepped closer to Dante, placing a hand on his back. "Dante is a good player, we've all seen that. We've all seen how far he's brought our team this year. He's Batman. He's the best damned player on our team," I looked back at the rest of the players who were nodding their heads. "A lot of us look up to him and follow his lead. And like the others have said, there isn't a one of us who wouldn't do the same for our fiancee's. I think all of you can agree that fiancee's are just as important and just as much family as wive's are. There are plenty of us who are not married, but we have girlfriends and fiancees that are just as important as any wife would ever be to us.

"Dante is a damned good player. He's brought us through this season and all the seasons we've been together on the Jets. If it weren't for him and his support of the entire team, we wouldn't all be here. He's supported all of us through the games and in our own personal lives, and there isn't a one of us who wouldn't do the same thing for him. That's why we're here today. We're here to give Dante the same support he's always given us. He shouldn't be kept from playing in the Super Bowl this Sunday, and I would just like to say," I looked back at the team members, nodding as they nodded to me in return before I looked back at the board, "none of us will be playing if Dante isn't playing. We will forfeit, and I know no one wants that."

My shoulders tensed, my eyes snapping from the team and back to Dante. I knew this was a loss... after that comment this would be thrown away and we'd all turn our backs. I curled my hands roughly in my pad of paper in front of me, trying to breath through my nose and relax.

I looked down the sides of the table at the board members on either side of me. Looking back out at everyone, I nodded my head. "The board and I will take a short recess. We will reconvene in 5 minutes." The board members and I all stood up and left the room to converse.

I turned my head back toward my teammates, giving them all a huge smile. I had the best teammates in the world. I patted Jackson's hand and stood. "Thanks, guys." I said to them all, glancing over at Julius who was quiet... almost eerily quiet. As if he never spoke before. I glanced back at Jackson, shaking his hand. "Thanks, bro."

I shook my head. "There isn't anything I wouldn't do for you, man. You know that." I glanced over at Julius, shaking my head. "Don't worry," I spoke to Dante only, quiet so no one else could hear me. "He's going to get what's coming to him. Believe me, he's going to wish he never crossed either of us!"

I blew out a heavy breath, closing my eyes. I had to remember that I was winning. I was the one who had made love with Isabella last night. I was the one who woke up with her in my arms. Me. Not him. And I suppose this was a blessing because I could rub it in his face every damn day. I smirked slightly, my heart feeling with warmth. I had Isabella. Not him.

The board members and I discussed it and headed back into the room. We all sat back down and I waited until everyone else was seated before clearing my throat. "The board has come to the conclusion and ruling that Dante Castellano will not be suspended and he will be allowed to play in the Super Bowl this coming Sunday. Thank you. Have a nice day." The board members and I left that as it was and left the room as the entire team cheered for the ruling on their team mate.

I stepped toward the guys after the board's verdict and all of them came at me at once to hug me, shake my hand and clap my shoulder. I was smiling and celebrating so much so I didn't even notice Julius disappear, but when the room thinned out and the team was gone, cheering as they did, I found his seat empty. "Shit!" I said, patting Jackson's shoulder. "Let's go." I walked out of the room and watched as his car pulled away. "Son of a bitch!"

I held up my hand quickly to hail a cab. "Don't worry. He won't get away!" A cab pulled up and I pulled Dante into the cab with me. "Follow that black town car! Step on int for the love of Christ!" I told the cab driver and turned back to Dante. "He's not going to get away!"

"Faster!" I snapped. "Sir, I can only do the speed limit!" I sighed, my leg bouncing as I watched Jules' car zip from lane to lane.

"Screw the speed limit," I told the cab driver. "I'll pay the cops not to give you a ticket. Just put the petal to the metal, dude!"

"Fine, fine!" He snapped, stepping on the speed. However just as he turned down a side street, his wheels spun and sent us flying toward a parked car. Thankfully the man was a good enough driver to get the car to come to a screeching halt, but in the process we lost Jules. I got out of the car, swearing under my breath as I kicked the tire of the car. "Son of a bitch!" The man popped his head out. "Stay out of my cab!" He turned to Jackson. "You get out too! Go!"

I glared at the mothefucker. "Suck my dick, prick!" I shook my head, turning to Dante. "I'm sorry, Man." I was pissed, and I knew Dante was pissed too. "We'll get him. He'll be at the Super Bowl this weekend. He can't run from us then. He'll be with us for at least six hours. We don't have to worry about a damned thing... Just that the weekend isn't going to get here fast enough."
