    Summary

    Being a poor man in the Roaring Twenties was tough. It was even tougher if you were a Chicago Korean. Struggling to get by at a prestigious Midwest college, Seunghyun thought he knew that better than anybody – at least until one boozy, jazz-filled night in a South Side alley: the night he met the low-born and high-priced Kwon Jiyong. And then he realized he knew nothing at all.

    *With Prohibition in full swing and the Chicago Outfit poised to take control of the city in a storm of political corruption and gunfire, a chemistry student and a rich man’s plaything fight to survive and thrive amid the throes of unrequited love, racial tension, and the chaos accompanying the rise of Al Capone.*

    Summary

    The speak easy that Miss Rey Kenobi frequented was right in the middle of a territory war between the Russians (gangs like the First Order, Empire, and other branches of Mafia) and the Italians (The Republic, The Rebellion, and some homegrown terrorists like the Falcones, Krennics and Thrawns). That was enough to make any detective, even Ben Solo nervous. He almost wasn't let inside, and if any cop spent too long outside in this part of New York, they were going to die.

    Luckily, he had a man on the inside who got him in. And by man inside he meant his father. He wasn't proud of it and the two of them were estranged, but the old man owed him seven hundred bucks and this was one of the many favors he'd be cashing in to get his money back.
    At least the inside was nice, all dark wood and red velvet lining the seats. He saw her almost immediately. She was wearing a white dress that was revealing enough to be scandalous but not enough to be considered a harlot by the masses.
    Ben surveyed the room, most people were drunk and partying, but he saw at least twelve men in trench coats that were certainly not drunk that were eyeing him all around the room. They were probably armed.

    Summary

    An E/C story, based in 1920's New York City. Christine is a singer at a speakeasy, owned by the DeChagny family, and Erik is a mob boss.
    I'm awful at summaries and this might've been done already, but its an interesting plot.
    This is also more of a first draft than a polished story, so please bear with me.
