The Devil and Me

Chapter 2

When I woke up, I had the absolute worst headache. Though the headache is not as bad as the pain that I am feeling in my neck. It felt like someone was sticking needles in my skin over and over again. I slowly touched my neck and I could not feel any blood. How was it possible that there was not any blood? Not even dried blood. That was weird.

I was currently laying down on a very comfortable bed. I tried to sit up, but I noticed that I could not. Then I was very aware of the steel-like arms holding me. I instantly knew that it is Lucifer that is holding me.

I could not believe it. I mean, how could he? He bit me. He promised he would never bite me without my permission.

“Promises are meant to be broken.” He said. I never liked his ability to read minds. It made me uncomfortable.

“Get off me. We were together before, but we are not together anymore.” I told him, memories flashing under my eyelids like it was yesterday. The memories of us being together hurt me because we were not like that anymore. What changed Lucifer? How did he turn out to be this way?

He rolled me over, so I was beneath him. He slowly leaned in, but he did not kiss me. Our lips were touching. “We can still be together love.” He told me, his voice deep and alluring.

I could smell his cinnamon breath. He always smelled like cinnamon.

I looked into his black eyes. They were twinkling and sparkling. I would never have thought that would be the eyes of the devil.

He kissed me. I froze. I was in shock. After all this time, did he still care? He is so confusing. I cannot handle another heartbreak. I did not kiss him back. I could not let him get to me. We are not together anymore. He cannot manipulate me. After everything that he did yesterday, I could not forgive. I could not forgive all his sins. His dark and cruel side had for a long time overpowered his kind and gentle side.

I got my shit together and pushed him. He did not move. I tried and pushed him with all the strength that I had. He finally moved.

In a blink of an eye, he was standing at the foot of the large bed.

I furrowed my eyebrows. My head hurting from all the confusing things that he did.“Are you trying to manipulate me by seducing me?”

He chuckled darkly and looked me in my eyes “Maybe darling, is it working?” then he winked at me.

My jaw dropped and then he was gone. I took a deep breath and tried to calm my racing heart. I was nervous. He is more unpredictable than he has ever been. Finally, he was gone, I needed time to think things through.

KNOCK KNOCK! Somebody is at the door.

‘what is this’ I frowned, Who could this be? Nobody ever visits me before sending a text or something.

I turned the television off and walked to the front door and opened.

At the door, stood my very best friend. “Gabriel! I missed you! Where have you been? I’ve been so lonely. Oh, and also bored. But at the same time, I’ve been busy shopping and work and stuff.” I told him accusingly.

Gabriel is an angel. One of the powerful ones. I never asked him if he was an archangel because for some reason Gabriel does not talk about his life in heaven. I have never figured out the reason though. Although I knew that Gabriel is not more powerful than Lucifer. I wish he was because then he could make sure that Lucifer never bothers me again.

He helped through the breakup of me and Lucifer. He is my absolute best friend. I just haven’t seen him in months. Our first encounter was when he visited hell to take back a fallen angel, but he had to get Lucifer’s permission to do so. I, of course, was the one to persuade Lucifer to give his permission. Since then Gabriel always visited me. He mostly came when Lucifer was not around. Lucifer hates all good beings, especially angels.

“I’m so sorry Stella. I’ve had so much work to do. I felt so bad because I could feel you missing me. It’s been hard, I just couldn’t visit you. I can’t tell you why. I’m sorry. Forgive me, please? I can’t handle you being mad at me. And with Lucifer being here, I’m sure you need my help.” He said, his ocean blue eyes showing sadness.

I sighed I cannot be mad at him. After all, he is only doing his job. I also desperately needed his help on what to do with Lucifer. Maybe he knew of Lucifer’s reasons for visiting me, but also his attempts of trying to manipulate and scare me.

“Of course, I forgive you. You are my best friend. What would I do without you? Just please tell me next time, you’re going away.” I said to Gabriel while smiling.

He entered my living room and then hugged me. I hugged him back. It is very nice to see him again. I have been so worried.

“Should we watch a movie?” He asked smiling brightly at me

I giggled “Sure. Pick a movie and I’ll go to the kitchen and make some popcorn.”

We watched the movie. Gabriel had to go shortly afterward, and I was alone yet again. I was just hoping that Lucifer would not come and visit again. Lucifer hated Gabriel for obvious reasons. Lucifer always hated it when I was with Gabriel.

I began cooking or else I would slowly die of boredom. I took all the different kinds of ingredients and began to make a dish that I found in a recipe book.

“Trying to make me jealous?” Lucifer said darkly out of nowhere.

I jumped “Please don’t scare me like that!” then I continued “Why would I waste my time with you?”

Suddenly he was in front of me, so we were face to face or rather face to chest. “I know you were with Gabriel today.” He grabbed my wrists and began to squeeze hard. He is trying to be intimidating. It is slowly working because my wrists began to hurt.

“Stop,” I said.

He chuckled “Why would I?”

“You are hurting me.”

“Maybe someday in the near future, you’ll learn not to cross me.”

Then I blinked and he was gone yet again. I hated it when he disappeared. I despised it.

My wrists were hurting, my mind is confused but also hurting from thinking about the good times until now because everything is changed. Nothing will ever be the same. The question is only, what will happen?
