Deal With The Devil Chapter 12A Chapter by tanaya
The first things I had noticed as my mind slowly woke up was that I was most defiantly not on the forest floor anymore. Instead I seemed to be in a soft bed, a king bed by the feel of it to. Slowly opening my eyes I saw that I was actually in a huge room. It's decorations were fit for a queen. With a huge four poster bed and elegant wardrobes and tables. With such small detail on them I thought it would have taken months to construct this type of work. Why was I in this room?
Getting up I noticed that there was no windows and only a huge wooden door on the other side of the room. Walking over to the door I twisted the knob to find that it was locked. Did I really expect anything else? Sighing I thought over in my head why I could be here? I didn’t think it would be in hell because I was sure that there was nothing this nice in hell. I turned back to the bed and went to walk over to it. Before I could take more than a couple of step I was stopped in my tracks by a hand around my waist.
I froze and closed my eyes. Another freaky kidnapper? Isn't one enough for one person? Obviously not. Hesitantly turning around I opened my eyes and gasped as I saw the person in front of me. He was not anyone I had seen before. I knew I would have remembered him if I had seen him before. He had black hair that was cut in a sexy scene/emo look with the most beautiful forest green eyes. He had a strong jaw with a clear, pale face. Letting my eyes wonder I saw that he had a lean body and was not to muscly. Just how I liked them. 'No Melissa, get those thoughts out of the gutter!' stupid sub-conscience. But I knew it was right.
Bringing my eyes back up to his I saw that he was looking at me smugly. I frowned and shook my head, placing my hand on his arms a tried to move them away but he had a firm grip on my waist. Frowning I struggled as hard as I could to get away until I finally realised this wasn’t getting my anywhere. I slumped in his arms defeated. A low chuckle came from the kidnapper and I looked at him surprised. A beautiful deep sound came from his throat as he talked to me
"finally you give up" at that I just scowled at him and crossed my arms pouting.
Somehow I turned my body around so I was facing him. Glaring at him I seized him up to see if he would be doing anything suspicious. Safe, for now.
"and who might you be?" I asked, irritated. He chuckled again and looked at me
"well I am your lovely host Matthew" hmm I thought, the name suits him. Frowning I asked as politely as I could
"could you please let go of my waist?" I fluttered my eyelashes innocently trying to put up a front that I was innocent. It didn’t work. He just laughed in my face and shook his head.
"Honey you are coming with me" I shook my head, now afraid I struggled harder but gave up after he just stood there, never letting me go. I calmed down and remembered everything that I knew from my defence classes on earth and what William taught me. William. Would he be missing me? Would he be searching for me? Surely. Shaking the thought out of my mind for the moment I took hold of his arm and twisted it with all my might so the it was bent at a weird angle.
Wincing at this Matthew shook his arm out of my grip. I took this chance to run and bolted for the door. Getting out I saw I was in a long hallway. Going straight to the end door I twisted the door knob and to my luck it was unlocked. Running outside I took one last glance back and saw Matthew glaring at me from the door. I squeaked at his closeness and ran for my life. The last thing I heard before I disappeared into the forest that was ahead of me was him shout out to me
"Melissa! We will get you! The eadens group will prevail! You will see the light!" the one word trigged my memory. Yes. The Eadens group. Lucifer had mentioned that name in the meeting that I had eavesdropped on. I had to find out what these people wanted. I had a pretty good idea what or who they wanted but I had to be sure.
Running through the woods I reached a familiar part and realised that this was where Lucifer had taken me. Half an hour later by my guess I was back at the edge of the forest. Only a little bit of from where I was. Running up to the mansion I walked into the house and ran towards my room. Closing the door behind me I collapsed on my bed in a heap. Sighing I looked at the ceiling and mulled everything over.
What was I to do? I had to figure this entire thing out yet was sure no one would tell me. Maybe William but no one else would be willing and I really didn’t know anyone else. I realised then how I had only met William and Nathan here. It was like there was no one else in the house yet there was so much here.
Closing my eyes for a brief moment I relaxed into my soft bed as I cleared my mind of all thought. In hope of finding some proper sleep. The sleep on the forest ground had done me no good at all. Before I knew it the wind was being knocked out of me as I was tackled onto the bed.
Opening my mouth to let out a scream I was cut off with a hand covering my mouth. Before I could cause to much damage to my attacker I quickly realised that it was in fact William. I looked up at him and pulled at his hand on my mouth. Getting the message he removed his hand from my mouth and slightly moved away from me. Taking this as my chance I talked him back and started hitting him hard in the chest.
This went on for about 10 minutes before with tears running down my face I gave up. William wrapped his arms around my shoulder and enclosed me in his warm arms. I sat there for another 5 minutes crying out my soul to him while he just sat there rubbing his hand up and down my arm muttering soothing words to calm me. Finally I looked up at him and with the back of my hands whipped my eyes.
Sitting up in a sitting position I folded my hands in my lap and just stared at them. Great I just embarrassed myself in front of William. I felt his hand on my arm and hesitantly looked up at him. Avoiding his eyes I looked over his shoulder but he put his finger under my chin so I had no choice but to look at his eyes. What I saw there surprised me. There was concern, sympathy and something else I couldn’t figure out.
"what happened?" he whispered to me. I just looked down at my hands again and mumbled out a nothing. He obviously didn’t buy it as he made me look at him again. with his piercing eyes he asked me again
"what happened Melissa?" Looking into his eyes with all that care I broke down again and stuttered out it all
"L-Lucifer had l-left me in the f-f-forest and I-I was k-k-kidnapped again and this s-s-stupid eadens g-g-group took me and I had to run a-away and they said they would g-g-get me and everything just g-g-got to me s-s-sorry" blubbering this out I whipped my eyes again and looked up at him.
A number of different emotions flashed across his face but the most prominent was anger. Whether that was directed at me or not I had no idea. I had an idea that it was directed at these Eadens people and thought on whether I should mention Matthew or not. As if reading my mind he asked
"who did you see there Melissa? This is important" I nodded my head and proceeded to tell him all about Matthew and the threat he had made.
By the end of my story William was furious. Slightly scared at this side of him I winced as he abruptly stood up. Glancing down at me he saw my fright and his face softened. Kneeling down to my height on the bed he traced a hand along the side of my face. Resting his hand at my check he looked into my eyes. Staring at his black eyes I saw that unfamiliar emotion in them again.
"I'm sorry Melissa, I didn’t mean to scare you "his voice was barely a whisper. I saw real regret in his eyes and instantly smiled.
"I forgive you" I breathed back. His face split into a grin as big as mine.
"I'm sorry but I have to go now. I have to talk to Lucifer about this nuisance. I knew straight away he was talking about the Eadens group. I meekly nodded and just sat there waiting for him to go. Giving me a quick kiss that sent my heart racing he hesitantly moved and left my room.
Letting out a big sigh I laid back letting my feet dangle of the bed. Why did my life had to be so complicated? I mean wasn’t enough that I had been kidnapped by the devil who wants to marry me but there was also someone else after me. Falling in love just complicates the whole thing, though I knew I didn’t regret it one bit. Did I really fall in love? After this short time? I guess so seeing as my sub-conscience had already made its mind up.
Resting on the bed I gazed up at my ceiling which I seemed to be doing a lot these days. Before I knew it another person had barged in my room. I just don’t get a brake do I? sitting up straight I looked at my intruder which was Lucifer. Surprise, surprise. I just sat there patiently and waited for him to say what he wanted and leave so I could get some uninterrupted sleep.
"where were you last night?" he said in an angry tone. I stayed calm and coolly replied with
"lost in the woods. Where were you?" his face seemed to get angrier by the second.
"I was doing my job. As the king of hell" his voice was laced with venom. I flinched slightly but quickly regained my composure.
"well could you not do your duty and not make me get lost and captured in hell, your own domain" I was now shouting at him. He looked even more furious, if that was possible. With his eyes somehow going a darker black he advanced upon me.
My sub-conscience had caught up with me and was now screaming at me to run away. Of course being me I didn’t back down. I just stood up, clenching my fists tightly and squaring my shoulders, ready to face him. Lucifer looked at my stance and I saw a change in his appearance. He slightly relaxed and let his guard down and sat on the edge of the bed. I just looked down at him with a confused expression on my face and decided to sit down on the ground far away from him.
Sighing he rubbed his hand across his face in an exhausted way. I felt I slight pang of pity but quickly pushed it away. He didn’t deserve my pity. Looking down at my hands on my lap I alerted my ears for any sign that he was approaching me. He stayed where he was. Thank god for that
"Look Melissa I-I'm sorry" I was surprised. Why would the devil say sorry to me, a human. Looking at him quizzically he continued
"I am sorry that I have hurt you and would like to start a new" he looked nervous and I thought about what this could mean
"what do you say?" He said. I was very suspicious of him as I was sure he was only doing this for his personal gain. I decided to let him out of his misery and hesitantly nodded. He looked relieved and I decided that I would be careful and to not trust him at all.
Seemingly satisfied with my response he jumped to his feet and clapped his hands once. I immediately was weary on what he was doing but quickly made my face blanket and hesitantly took his hand as he held it out for me
"we are going to do something that friends do" I worried about what the devil could possible think friends do.
"so, Melissa. What do friends do?" I groaned and thought 'this is going to be a long day
