It didn’t take Ambrose long to get home; he was more so rushing to get out of Hunt territory than rushing to get back to his family, knowing if they knew where he was there would be many questions and he wasn’t sure how exactly he would answer them. His sister didn’t say much over the phone besides bringing up the Hunt family, so he was a bit intrigued about all that was going on, especially with the recent actions of his sister against the Hunt’s eldest son. Along his ride home, his sister texted him about where he was and what was taking him so long, Brody quickly replied with a message talking about traffic, but he only was a few minutes out now.

Brody pulled his motorcycle in the garage and closed the door behind him, leaving his helmet on the shelf before walking inside. After quickly entering, he could hear the conversation about the Hunts had already started with his family, mostly yelling between his sister and their parents. “Are you kidding me? Talks about peace?! We should be out there taking what is ours, not playing fiddle with them.” Brody heard his sister yelling out, pounding a fist on the table. “It is just talking. No concrete deals.” His father retorted just as he turned from the hallway. “Wait wait wait, peace? With the Hunts?” Ambrose asked, confused about all that is going on. Over the next few hours the Maione family discussed what was going on and their plan. Ambrose and Maddy actually agreeing on something for once.

They got everything situated and began heading to the abandoned trainyard, the meeting spot for this meeting. The Hunt’s were always the type to try to outshine and show they are better than everyone with their professional fancy suits, while Maione’s did show a care for fashion, during their “work” they knew suits were not the right thing to wear as they easily got damaged and dirty. Each of them wearing their more signature look to the meeting. Ambrose with a simple leather jacket over a shirt and a bandana covering the lower half of his mouth, something he wore often during his family’s work, though people could still read his expressions through his eyes. Maddy wore her studded jacket she wore everywhere, adn their parents wearing similar outfits. Also under them all were a bullet proof vest that they had recently acquired from the shipyard.

While they traveled together, the family didn't all take the same vehicle to the location, in the off chance it was a trap they would have options for getting away. The majority of their guard traveled in an SUV leading the convoy, a second SUV behind them held Brody’s parents, his sister drove herself in her Bentley, and Brody followed behind riding his motorcycle. As they pulled into the trainyard, the two SUV’s split apart, with Maddy parking on the right behind their parents and Brody circling around a bit as Maddy and the parents got out and started walking towards the others. It wasn’t until Brody’s father raised his hand that he pulled his motorcycle up next to his sister and got off of it, running his hand through his hair and making sure his mask was positioned on his face.

When he looked around he noted the number of men the Hunts had brought, and two things caught his attention. The eldest son was here, which surprised him a bit after what Maddy told him, and the second was that the youngest son was also at the meeting. He hadn’t seen him much involved in the business, and now he knew why. It was Eli.

Eli didn’t usually come to these things. People knowing his face made his job much harder to do, and he usually didn’t have much to contribute anyway. But his father had given him some spin about wanting to present a unified front or something. Besides, apparently it was peace talks. As much as Eli desperately wanted peace, wanted to be able to walk around the city without being watched and without having to fear for his life if he took a wrong turn, he wasn’t convinced it was going to work out all that well. But he didn’t want to argue either, so just did as his father told him.

He resisted the temptation to just shove his hands in his pockets and mimicked his brother’s stance as the Maiones approached. They never seemed to have the same finesse that the Hunts liked to display, instead trying to come across as intimidating by looking like every pop culture gang ever, down to the girl’s ridiculous and over the top studded jacket. One of them even had a bandana over his face. Eli’s eyes skimmed over each of them in term, reading them. The younger members of the family seemed to be unimpressed and not likely to co-operate. He wasn’t convinced any of them were really here for peace.

His eyes flicked back to the man with the bandana again. There was something almost familiar about him, a feeling that made Eli uneasy. The man seemed off, like something had rattled him though, and Eli wondered if they could use that to their advantage. He made a mental note to watch him particularly closely throughout the meeting. His own father stepped forward and began to speak, saying how both sides were suffering heavy losses and how a peace treaty would benefit them both. Eli watched the other family carefully, reading every reaction.

It didn’t take long for the meeting between the two families to start. Ambrose stood off next to his sister, not talking much to the other family., letting his parents do most of the talking to the Hunts. Even though he was next in line, Brody tended to stay out of the spotlight, Gerard, the next in line for the Hunt family took more control than Amrbose ever would during these meetings. Maddy threw out a few snarky remarks here and there, and every time Ambrose would just tell her to be quiet, which made her roll her eyes. It wasn’t until Gerard retorted, calling her a little whore that finally brought words out of Brody’s mouth. “Hey! Don’t talk to her that way. Unlike her, I won’t miss the shot.” He shouted from beneath his bandana.

“Ambrose. No need for threats.” His father quickly, trying to shut down anything before things escalated. “That wasn’t a threat father, it-” Brody started talking, but a glare from his father shut him down quickly. “Honey, go take a breather.” His mother quickly said to him. This was one of their many codewords the Maione’s had set up, his mother didn’t actually want Brody to take a breather, but to step away and do some scouting around, in this scenario, see if the Hunts set up any sort of trap. He faked an eye roll and an out loud sigh of a deep breath and walked off to the side and quickly out of sight between some train cars.

Brody stayed light on his feet as he snuck around, not wanting to be caught too far away from his family. He expected their rivals to send someone to look for the missing Maione child, and would be a bit disappointed if they didn’t if he were to be honest, and dumb on their part. But he wasn’t worried, right now he just cared about gathering some information and any possible threats that may be coming their way. While his parents were content with speaking about peace and a possible truce, Brody and Maddy weren’t as optimistic, both expecting a sort of scuffle going on.

There wasn’t anything out of the ordinary around the trainyard, it was starting to seem like the other family didn’t bring any tricks up their sleeves or ambush plans, even though they got to the location first and this particular location was their idea. As Brody climbed down a ladder off of a train car, he heard the sound of a can getting kicked and quickly turned with his gun towards the sound. He froze for a second seeing it was Eli, subconsciously lowering his weapon a bit, not saying anything.

His brother’s temper was going to get them into trouble as usual, it seemed. Eli didn’t externally react as his brother called one of the Maiones a whore, but internally, he was rolling his eyes. That wasn’t going to get either of them anywhere, and their respective leaders seemed to realise that. One of the Maiones threw an insult, though, and normally, Eli would have taken it as a sign that they were getting under their skin. But instead, his brow furrowed ever so slightly. The voice of the older Maione seemed… familiar.

As the matriarch sent him away, Eli already knew what his order would be. He slipped away as quietly as he could, going to follow him. He knew how this worked now. He was to go and follow them, and make sure they weren’t setting up any sort of trap. Eli was the best for going undetected, knowing how to stick to the shadows and how to go undetected.

But the familiarity of the other man had rattled Eli ever so slightly, and he was a little off form. As he watched the Maione climb down from a train car, Eli’s foot nudged a can and sent it rolling away from him. He swore silently to himself, going for his own gun. But the Maione didn’t shoot for some reason, and so Eli didn’t either, keeping the gun pointed squarely at the man’s head.

“Come on, then. You’ve got me all alone, why the hesitation? You too afraid?” Eli said, knowing that provoking this man was probably the best way to get him angry and throw him off.
