Giuseppe Stromboli and the Cosa Nostra. The halls of The Olive Garden were eerily quiet for a Friday evening. Sounds of accordion music and the enchanting smells of pasta flow from the great hall like fresh oregano based breeze. The dimly lit corridors make for excellent skulking, just how Gius eppe liked it. He didn't want any unnecessary attention. Not one hour before, Giuseppe received an owl from Himmoine relaying that the new batch of Polyjuice potion was ready for inspection. Giuseppe turned a comer to find the lights were all but extinguishe d. "Huh, cant see a damn thing, who's these people think I am? A god damn bat?". In a swift motion, Giuseppe flourished his Bang Noodle and murmured "Gotta'Light" and in an instant, the corridor was illuminated. "Stromboli" Startled by the sudden appearance of his nemesis from Slytherin, Drago Molloy, Guiseppe raised his Bang Noodle in defence. "Molloy! What's your Irish ass doin' on my floor? Don't you's know this is my turf?". Molloy laughed "My Sromboli, you really are thick aint cha? You know well and good we want the 3rd floor bathro om and you're going to be a good grease ball and hand it over, else we're going to take it". Giuseppe waved his Bang Noodle and yelled "Geddafuckouttahere". A bright flash proceeded toward Molloy and connected, dis arming him ofhis Bang Noodle. Molloy looked startled and Giuseppe stepped toward him “You's fuhge ddin' who I am Molloy? I'm the chosen one, I've fought off Latinas, Survive d the Mamma Mia curse and fought off the Dark Chief of Police! I'm untouchable!" Molloy cowere d, turned and fled into the darkness. “He'll be back, the shmuck" Giuseppe mused, as he continue d toward the Gryffindor common room and his new Polyjuice potion empire. 5:56 PM · Jul 9, 2020 · Twitter Web App > Marco M. @XIIHangedman | always cry when I re-read how the parents of #giuseppestromboli got killed An Italian-American immigrant is held still and forced to watch in horror as pineapple is added to a pizza for the first time. 1914, Brooklyn, New York 5:42 PM · Jul 9, 2020 · Twitter for Android >
