Luigi sat down next to Cody and took his hand.
“Coads, if you let yourself get broken by what that bastard did to you, he'll have won. You have your whole life ahead of you.”
“It sounds OK … but … I feel … dirty. I … I can't explain it, Lou.” He pulled his hand away from Luigi's, and put his head into his hands.
Luigi felt a surge of intense rage build in him. Not towards Cody, but towards the man who had done this to him. Generations of Sicilian ancestors who had fought bitter vendettas rose up in him and he knew the chill certainty that if he ever got the opportunity, he would personally send the killer to hell. He didn't let his deep anger show to Cody. Instead, he took Cody's hand back and said, “Coraggio, mio amore. We will fight back. And we will win. Eat now.” And as if he was feeding a baby, he offered the scrambled eggs little by little to Cody, holding the spoon up to the other man's mouth and making little encouraging noises while he did it. His own scrambled eggs grew cold on the plate.
