Lucifer's Bride (She's mine)
🔞 Episode 3
I laid on the bed in my room, going through a book when the door suddenly opened and mum came in, holding a glass of whatever it is.
"Baby" she called sweetly as she came close and sat next to me on the bed.
"Hi mum" I greeted perfunctorily, covering my book on my lap.
She handed the glass to me and I stared at it without drinking.
It was a greenish bitter liquid and mum always gives it to me every night before I.I go to bed.
"Mum, what's this and why do you always make me take it?" I asked inquisitively and she sighed and placed her hand on mine.
"It's just an herbal drink, Roxanne that's very nourishing for the body" she replied and I nodded and gulped it down.
It was so bitter and I crumpled my face up after taking it.
She smiled and collected the glass from me, keeping it on the table beside her.
"Let me tell you a story Roxanne" she said and my eyes beamed.
I love it when she tells me stories. They're always interesting.
"Okay mum" I replied happily and laid properly on the bed, making sure i had clear view of her face.
She smiled and rubbed her palm on my hair.
"it all happened a long time ago" she started.
"In a different world from ours, called hell. Hell was lovely and peaceful as it was being ruled by the just King - Lucifer. The kinking of hell is always called Lucifer.
"The whole place was peaceful and calm and everything went on fine, but not until jealousy stepped in.
One of the King's subjects - Gerald - became envious and desired the throne for himself. As a result, he betrayed the king and turned the hearts of the people against him as well.
"Gerald had the king and his family locked up and totured them. Because of his background, he a as most powerful being in hell at that time and that was why he was able to achieve all that.
He tortured the King's wife and raped her severally in front of her son"
"He did?" I interpolated, taking abacked.
It was so horrible.
"Yes. And her son was just a little boy. But he's the present Lucifer in hell now" she replied.
"Lucifer? What happened to Gerald?" I asked again.
"Well, he lost in his battle. He couldn't take over the throne. Some other powerful people in hell stood up and fought against him and he lost. But he had already killed the king and his wife. Luckily, their little boy was able to escape him
"But this lucky boy grew up with so much hatred and darkness and since then, he's been after Gerald's only child"
"Gerald had a child?" I asked curiously.
"Yes. He was married to a young innocent lady who never knew the evil side of him until he betrayed the king." She replied and sighed sadly.
"Gerald loved his daughter so much, probably because she took after him by possessing his powers. She was precious to him and he died, risking his life to protect her when war was being waged against him after he betrayed the king. She was just a toddler.
"The mother of the baby had to run away with her, far away to a different planet. But the late King's son kept searching for them for revenge"
"Revenge?" I asked surprised.
"Yes. He's after Gerald's daughter so he can revenge everything her father did to him".
"But that's absurd. I mean, Gerald's daughter has nothing to do with what happened to him".
"You're right. But he doesn't think that way. In hell, it is believed if a person dies and his loved one is being hurt, he'll be able to feel it and sometimes, see It. And that's exactly what Lucifer wants. He wants to hurt Gerald's daughter so Gerlad can see it and know he's getting his revenge".
I scoffed and shook my head. Sounds really crazy. Thank God it's just a story.
"So...was he able to find her?" I asked after a little pause.
"Well,,her mother's trying to make sure she keeps her away from him. Running to another planet took all her powers away from her and now, she's defenceless and just prays she'll be able to protect her daughter from Lucifer" she replied.
"Well, that's the end of the story".
"Huh? But you didn't tell me what happened between Lucifer and..."
"That's just where the story ends. I also never got to hear the end of it" she replied and I chuckled and rolled my eyes.
"Fine. Well, I hope Gerald's daughter is safe" I said and laughed, cause it sounded funny.
Mum just smiled and rubbed my hair again.
"Good night love. I love you" she said tenderly.
"Love you too mum" I replied and she pecked my cheek and left the room.
I smiled and stared at the closed door for some time. Mum's story replayed in my head.
Then, I stood up and went to standby the window.
That same ugly bushy view welcomed me again.
When will I ever get out of here, know what the world looks like and explore it? When?
I sighed and leaned on it. Suddenly, a crazy thought niggled at me.
Lucifer's Bride (She's mine)
I sat in front of miss Margaret as she opened her books and got ready to lecture me for the day.
"Let's go on commerce" she said and went ahead to write on the white board.
I watched blearily as she wrote down a little note which I copied into my book and after that, she did some explaining.
When she was done with commerce, she went into maths, then Science and finally English.
"Were you able to go through the book I assigned you to read?" She asked as she sat in front of me.
"Yes" I replied, bringing the book out from my bag.
"So, how was it?"
"Well, it was nice. Just didn't like the way it ended. I mean, the part of the boy dying. It's tragic" I replied.
"Well, that's called true love. He risked his life for the girl" she said.
"But...does such thing really exist? True...love? Like, something that'd make a boy die for a girl?" I asked and she chuckled.
"it's not just a boy, Roxanne. It can also be a girl. And yes, it exists" she replied with a smile.
"But...what does It feel like? I mean, love. What does it feel like that it'd have to involve suchlike sacrifices?"
She smiled and stared at the ceiling.
"Love is a beautiful thing, a priceless experience. The two hearts becomes intertwined and beat together as one." She said.
"Really?" I exclaimed, becoming more interested.
"So, tell me, miss Margaret. How do people fall in love? Like...how does it happen? How can someone know she's in love?"
"Well, you'll feel it. If you're in love with someone, your reaction towards that person changes. You always want to spend time with him and no matter what he does, you find it difficult staying mad at him. He occupies your every thoughts and you become willing to take sacrifices just for him. Those are part of the signs of love".
I kept silent and reminisced over it, smiling.
I wonder what it feels like, falling in love and being loved in return.
"So...have you also been in love?" I looked at her and asked, smiling.
"Of course. But..." she paused and stared downwards with a sigh.
"Not important anyway. So..."
She was still talking when a call suddenly entered her phone and she picked it up.
Okay; I'll be there immediately📞
And she ended the call.
"Oh, my God, Roxanne; just got an urgent call from home. I need to hurry there immediately" she said in a haste as she stood up with her bag.
What? Miss Margaret never leaves until mum returns home from work. This is going to be my first time being home alone.
"Just stay safe and wait for your mum, okay? I'll call her now and tell her about the urgency so she can hurry up from work okay?" She said, perturbed.
"Okay miss Margaret. Bye" I replied and she ran out the door.
I stood up and looked through the window as she ran away through the woods. The door was opened and mum wasn't at home, no one at all.
I shook my head and returned to my seat. The crazy idea kept niggling at me but I decided to wave it aside.
Mum has told me it's best to stay here. She doesn't want me to go out. So, maybe I should just obey her.
But I've been obeying her for 19 years now. I'm now a lady. For how long will I continue hiding in here?
I took in a deep breath and stood up again.
I want to explore the world; know what it looks like and meet new people. I want to feel human. I'm tired of being locked in here like a slave. I think it's high time I took a stand.
I ambled to the door and turned the knob. It opened. I suddenly felt nervous.
No; I shouldn't be. I need to do this.
Perhaps, just a little viewing and I'll return.
Yes, I will.
Taking another deep breath, I opened the door and ran out.
I walked into Damon's room and found him sleeping on the bed.
I drew close and admired him. Geez! He was just too handsome and killing. I don't mind getting my pu*sy fucked by him the whole day. Too bad he's only had me once.
I smiled and went over to the table to drop the file I came to return.
I was about leaving the room when he suddenly woke up in a frightening way. I almost screamed.
He just sat up at once with a full force like someone who was awaking from a mighty nightmare.
He was breathing heavily at first, but it subsided and became normal.
"She's out" he said calmly, staring in one direction.
"I can feel her".
"S...Sir?" I stuttered, confused.
Who's he talking about?
He paused and looked at his palm.
"Gerald's daughter." He said.
"I can feel her. She's close".
