Queen of Melanin
Everything that was happening around Leo moved quickly. From being threatend, to guys he had always seen around but never spoken to coming to his defense to Ryan throwing a punch at Mickie. Leo was still stuck on trying to figure out what to do about the situation, the whole contract situation. It was a bad idea, he knew it, but he was terrified of what was going to happen to him or Ali or the place. Perhaps if Ryan hadn't shown up, he would have agreed. Actually, he would have. There was no question about him giving in to the men if there was no one there to back him up. However, he didn't want anything violent going down in the restaurant.
Everytime Leo went to open his mouth to speak, the more intimidating men in the room spoke. More threatening words being expressed, looks being given and Leo was dying under the weight of it all. Moments would pass by and more men would join the group, mostly to the side of Leo's. It was comforting to know how many people he and his sister, probably his sister more than he himself, would come to their defensive if needed. But when Ryan punched Mickie, that's when Leo was also knocked to his snese. "Okay! I don't think anything violent is necessary.." He said, more towards Ryan than anyone else, but it was meant for them too. "If anything take it outside." His eyes were darting around the place, the patrons eyeballing the stand and the commotion the men were causing. It was sure to be bad for business in the first place. "I'm sure, as gentlemen, we can talk about this in private. Away from the families that do come in here to enjoy time together." He was trying to make sure no more issues were caused.
