Chapter 13

I scramble out of his arms. “No, I’m not. That was just magic sex.”

He gets off the bed in all his nude glory and towers over me. “You felt our connection. It was more than that. You felt me inside you. Physically and mentally.”

I shake my head. “That was just our bond.”

“No, it wasn’t. Stop trying to fight it, Elsie. Stop trying to fight us.”

“I’m not fighting anything.”

“Yes, you are. I know you feel the same way about me as I do you.”

I sigh. “Let’s not worry about us right now. What’s important is getting your Loyal before Lilith tries anything.” I put my clothes on.

“You’re right but this conversation isn’t over.”

I go to the door but he stops me.

“I have something for you.”

He goes to his walk in closet and comes out with a red case. He opens it and it’s a bright red ruby. I’m in awe at the necklace. It has a gold chain and it looks old.

“It’s beautiful.”

“I want you to wear it. It’ll protect you.”

“From what?”

“They won’t be able to track you if you wear it.”


“Lilith’s minions. She’s looking for you. But as long as you wear this she won’t be able to find you.”

He puts my braids over my shoulder and puts the necklace on for me. He leans in and kisses my shoulder and I can’t help the chills I feel. I’m not denying my feelings for him. I just think everything is moving too fast. I mean I literally just freed him a couple of weeks ago and already he’s ready to start something? It’s too much too soon.

“You saw the map right?” I asked as we walked out of the room with both of us fully dressed.

“Yeah, and I realized that Lilith has already been fucking with me.”


“They’re all in the same places I met them. Minus Keir and Mel. She knew we would find them, she’s playing mind games already.”

“But why would she block us from doing the locating spell?”

“I don’t know. All I know is that we’ll definitely have a lot of surprises waiting for us when we get to the first destination.”

“We’ll be ready.”

“Are you sure your friends will be willing to help me?” he asked as we walked to the theater room.

“Yeah, they’ll do anything to help me. Plus Aunt Michelle would probably find some way to make them responsible. She tends to take her anger out on the wrong people. One of her few flaws. Mira is here to make sure I won’t get killed so she’ll definitely help.”

“Finally,” Patrick said as he, Cynthia, and Mira came out the theater room.

I see Cain and Patrick stare at each other like some macho contest. I roll my eyes. Patrick tends to be overprotective when it comes to any guy I even seem to like.

“I was right. You guys energy is something beyond what I thought.” Cynthia said.

“What do you mean?” I asked.

“We felt that shit.” Mira is the one to answer even though she doesn’t look up from her phone.

My eyes widen. “What do you mean you felt it?”

“She means when you guys had an orgasm we felt that shit like a blast. I mean someone blasted but it was more like your energy was so strong it affected us.” Patrick explained.

I look over at Cain with a worried look on my face. Was our connection that strong? I saw our power mixed together but I never thought anyone else would be able to feel it. I just hope none of Cain’s staff were affected. I look around to see they’ve unpacked everything and it looks homey.

“Did it hurt?” I asked.

They shake their heads and Patrick is the one to answer.

“It just felt like chills running through my body.”

I blew out a breath of relief. They were already sore from the spell we did earlier. I would hate to hurt them again with my magic.

“I’m sorry.”

“You don’t need to apologize. Now, where are we going?”

I let Cain answer because this is all about him.


I startle as Cynthia screams in glee. “France? I’ve been wanting to go there. Oh my goodness. I have to redo all my outfits.”

She goes running off but I grab her. “This isn’t a vacation Cyn. We don’t know what’s going to happen when we get there.”

She pouts but nods. The rest of the day goes by fast. Cain called Adelaine and she got his private jet.


This is it. This is the moment that will most likely change my life forever. The driver grabs my bag out of my hand to put it inside the limo’s truck. Cain puts a hand on my lower back and opens the door for me like we do this type of thing all the time. I tell the guy I want to wait before we push anything all this is over and now he’s acting like we’re in a relationship. It’s just a door. Let me stop overthinking this. We both get inside the limo and I watch as Cynthia opens a bottle of champagne. She acting like this is a celebration rather than us possibly dying trying to get his Loyal. I tried and failed again to get them to go back home.

Cain’s hand rubs up and down my back in a calming way. I should push him away but I let him comfort me. I look out the window as Cynthia and Patrick laugh and talk. Mira is busy flirting with someone on the phone and Cain is typing on his phone. He’s adapting quicker than I thought he would. Last night events are still in my head.

His hands on my hips, his lips on my body, the way he moved inside of me. I felt different. Stronger. Not anymore in control but I did feel more. I felt more for him. My emotions for him have changed. I don’t think I hate him as much as I did before. He’s still a heartless asshole but I didn’t get that feeling when he was inside of me. Not the sex but the bonding part. When we opened up for each other. I saw him. The Cain that most people don’t see. I saw his fear of being alone. I saw how much he loved his family. I could feel his pain of thinking he’s the reason he doesn’t have a family.

He’s wrong. Yes, he did kill his brother but if his parents would have told him what he was then he could have learned to control it better. I could understand being out of control. I was always walking on eggshells around everyone. I was always afraid that if someone pushed me a little too far I could possibly kill them. And that scared the hell out of me. Feeling Cain’s pain of actually doing it, is worse than I could have ever imagined. I know why Cain killed so many people after he left Hell. It wasn’t just because Lucifer told him he was finally free and to satisfy his monster. I didn’t see his monster but I felt it. It felt like a bottomless black pit. Never ending and never being full. That’s what the monster does to Cain. Cain needs to kill, he has to kill, it’s his curse.

I grab ahold of his hand and he looks down at me with those beautiful green eyes. They held so much emotion that I had to look away. I know how he sees me. If you would have told me a few weeks ago that I would be in a limo with the prince of Hell with my two best friends and my cousin. I would have probably believed you because my life has always been crazy. I’ve never cared about what happened in the future. I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t think everything through, that I’m reckless and a little immature but that’s just who I am. It’s a little impatient to think I’m in a soul bond with an immortal who is ten times my age but oddly enough it doesn’t feel weird. Cain’s permanent age is twenty two and I’m about to be nineteen.

Not that I was thinking about how it would look for us to be in a relationship. That would be crazy. I mean wouldn’t? It wouldn’t be a bad thing to explore what we feel for each other. It doesn’t have to be serious, it can just be a casual thing. Sex is just sex. There is no reason to read into anything. I will admit I found it hot that he called me his.

The drive to the airport wasn’t long and we pulled up in front of a jet. We all got out and were escorted by men in suits.

“When did you do all this?” I asked Cain.

“I didn’t. Adelaine did.”

Adelaine is Cain’s adopted mother. She seemed to do everything for him. We walk up the stairs to the jet. This has to be one of the more luxurious jets I’ve been on. The coven has its own jet but it definitely doesn’t look like this. White walls with brown linings. The seats are off white and the table connected to them is oak. Bright lights light the jet. There are little TVs at every seat. And a set of doors leading to a bathroom and a bedroom. A woman in a flight attendant uniform walks in.

“Hi, my name is Jessica and I’ll be your flight attendant for your trip.” She looks over at Cain. “Mr. Adam, everything is as you requested. The pilot is riding to go on your word.”

“Thank you. Tell them we’re ready to go.”

Cynthia, Mira, and Patrick take their seats across from each other and immediately get on their phones. Cain pulls us to seats further from them and we sit down. The chairs are so comfortable that I could fall asleep.

“What is the plan?” I asked.

“The first stop is France. Lilith is petty and put them in the countries I met them in. If it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t have even thought to look there.” Thank you again Elsie.” he said. “After we get Pierre, we’ll go get the rest of them.”

I nod my head and lay back in my seat as I feel the jet start to take off. Here we go.


The trip to France was longer than I expected. We get dropped off in front of Cain’s penthouse in the middle of France. A man leads us to an elevator and we go up to his room. I don’t even bother looking around as Cain leads me to one of the bedrooms. I hear him tell Mira, Cynthia, and Patrick which room are theirs. I didn’t fight him on having my own room because I wanted to be near him as much as possible.

“I think this is the most comfortable bed I’ve ever laid on,” I announced.

Cain laughs. “You’re just saying that because you’re tired.”

In a move that I wouldn’t expect from him, he grabs one of my legs and takes off my shoe. I stare at him in surprise as he takes off the other one.

“What are you doing?” I asked.

He sets the shoes neatly on the floor and unbuttons my jeans. I’m so surprised that I let him slide the jeans down, leaving me in my panties. He does the same with my shirt.

“What does it look like I’m doing?”

“Undressing me. I’m not in the mood for sex right now. Maybe after a nap, I’ll let you poke me with your magic stick.”

He raised an eyebrow. “Magic stick?”

I point towards his groin area. “Yeah, you do some serious magic with that thing. It should come with a warning.”

I was so sleepy that I didn’t even understand what I was saying. Cain laughs and pulls the covers so I’m able to get underneath. He reaches behind me and takes off my bra. He stops for a few seconds to admire my body before putting the bra with the rest of my clothes. This way more intimate than I wanted it to be but I’m too tired to overthink it.

“I thought I’d leave your panties on to make you feel comfortable .”

“It’s fine. I sleep like this anyway.”

I close my eyes and listen as he takes off his clothes and gets in the bed with me.

“Why are you being so nice all of a sudden?” I asked, half asleep.

“I’m always nice.”

I laughed.

“You’re the last person I’d ever act cold towards.”

I think I feel him kiss my forehead before I drift into a long needed sleep.
