Narrator’s P.O.VAugust was finally in her room now. She was breathing heavily and closed the door behind her. She was scared...more than scared. She could not believe this happened again and she was confused what to do.
Should I leave the job? But if I do how aunt Caroline will bear my expenses?
These thoughts were roaming in her head causing her to shut her eyes. She didn’t know what to do but she understood that master Lucifer was not a sane man. He was lunatic! Why would a person do this to his own maid? She had no wish to go out of her room because she knew she would come face to face to him anyway, it was his house too after all. Shaking off her thoughts she turned the door knob and opened the door wide enough to step outside. Her heart was beating fast, she was shaking badly and silently praying that she didn’t have to see him for the rest of the day.
Slowly she went towards the kitchen and saw it was empty. She sighed in relief, she was thankful that Martha wasn’t there as she knew that she might question her where she had been. She started to do her chores quietly trying to forget about the incident. She had no wish to work there anymore, she didn’t want to think about it but, August knew that he might try something like this again.
Should I tell this to Martha?
But then again she thought why would Martha even believe her...she was working there for just little time and Martha knew the Knights for years, there was no way Martha would believe her and also she might lose her job because the Knights might think August was spreading lies about Lucifer and she couldn’t lose this job...no matter how much she wanted to leave.
She flinched at the sound of someone whistling. She turned around and gasped when she saw a figure standing in front of the counter facing his back to her.
The person turned around and noticed August’s scared expression.
“Oh! I’m sorry miss I didn’t know I will scare you.” He said and smiled widely. He had a beautiful smile and eyes that shone bright.
“That’s not a problem master Ebenezer.” She muttered softly and went back to do her work.
“Mhhm. So, how are you miss August?” She was shocked when she heard him asking that. She gulped and felt nervous because never in her life any guy had ever try to talk to her.
“I-I’m fine master.” She felt rude for not asking him back. But she was too shocked and scared.
He smiled at her warmly. “You know no one is here you can call me by my name.” She stared at him with big eyes which kinda amused him.
“N-no I’m sorry I cannot do this, it’s not allowed and if I did...I may get fired.” She answered.
He laughed and it sounded beautiful to her ears. “No my darling no one will fire you from the job because I’m the one who told you to call me that, okay?” She blushed at the nickname. No one had ever called by nicknames except her aunt.
“Okay sir. I’ll try my best.” She smiled at him. Ebenezer felt weird sensation in his heart when he saw her smile. It was the most beautiful smile ever. He knew when he saw this girl for the first time that there was something special about this girl. No, she wasn’t like other girls, she wasn’t beautiful like other girls, she hardly got curves like other girls, she doesn’t even wear makeup but yet her beautiful eyes were the best thing ever.....it shine brightly enough bright to make a guy fall for her.
He noticed he was staring at her for long. He cleared his throat and moved away his eyes noticing a small blush on her cheeks.
“Okay so August I’ll leave now. See you soon.” He smiled and she replied it back muttering bye. He left the kitchen with a wide smile on his face. If anyone saw him they would think he had win something big. August was also feeling good as at least someone in that house was nice.
But little did they know that they both were being watched by the devil himself.
He was watching both of them carefully, feeling his blood boiling dangerously. He wanted to go and wipe that smile from her face. Not because he didn’t fine it enchanting but because he didn’t want any other guy to be the reason of that smile. He wanted to be that reason.
He didn’t like how her face light up with that smile and the reason of that smile was his own brother. He clenched his teeth together. He came to his sense and observed her again.
She was lightly humming a song and doing her work in the kitchen. Lucifer didn’t want to miss the beautiful scenery in front of him. He had to leave for work but he couldn’t move an inch. She was always beautiful for him, in every angle, in every way. He doesn’t want any other guy to be with her...heck even stare at her.
He was sure about the fact that he wouldn’t let anyone take her away from him...not even his brother. He was so lost in his thought that he didn’t notice he was late for his office. He looked at her for the last time and turned around to leave when he heard someone calling him.
“Lucifer!” He turned around and saw his mother walking towards him.
She stood in front of him. “Are you leaving for office?”
“Yes I am, why?”
“Oh I’ll go with you too, I’ve some task to do, I’m going to have my juice then we can leave.” She said and went to the kitchen with Lucifer following her behind.
August didn’t notice the mother and son coming inside of the kitchen, she was too busy in her work. But, that made Lucifer grinned devilishly because he would get to see August for the last time before he leave for office.
August was cleaning the kitchen tables but Mrs. Knight’s voice broke the silence she was enjoying. She looked up at her beautiful smiling face.
“Oh August! My dear can you please get me my juice that I drink every morning?” She asked softly. August nodded her head and brought her juice and placed it on the table. She was trying hard to avoid the intense gaze of his. But of course she failed...
He watched her every move quietly not saying a single word. Few minutes later they heard Mr. Knight call for his mother.
“Okay son I’ll check what he wants and then we’ll leave.” She smiled at him and left leaving both of them alone. August’s heart was beating fast. She didn’t want to be near that man. She tried hard to stay away and avoid him by doing her other chores.
He clenched his fists as he saw her totally avoiding him. How dare this little brat! He couldn’t tolerate her avoidance. He took the glass and poured win and drank it while keeping his eyes on her. He put the glass down on the table making a loud noise. She flinched at the roughness, this made Lucifer smirked. He knew she was still afraid of him and this fear satisfied him more.
He stood up and approached her. She heard the footsteps but didn’t dare to move an inch. She was too scared to do that but she also knew that if she didn’t move away from him he might again get a chance to humiliate her and she didn’t want to let that happen.
He stopped when he was enough close to her. He could already hear her loud heartbeat. He put his hands both sides of the counter blocking her way to move out.
“Look at me.” He said in his husky voice. She gulped and closed her eyes she didn’t wish to turn around and face him.
“I said look at me!” He growled. She flinched and helplessly obeyed him. His breathe hitched after seeing her beautiful eyes. No matter how much he saw them, he couldn’t ever get over her.
His hand automatically went up to caress her soft smooth skin. He loved the feeling of her skin in his rough hands. She was scared and didn’t understand what to do. She clenched her fists. No I have to fight. I cannot let him do this to me again and again.
She looked at him directly in his eyes which was surprising for Lucifer. She glared at him and pushed his chest hard. He backed away a little which was enough for August to run away from him. She didn’t waste her time and moved away from him. But he was much stronger than her. He grabbed her hair and glared at her with his angry eyes. Anger was written all over his face.
How dare she push me! I’m going to fucking show her what it’s like to mess with me.
He slapped his hand on her mouth, muffled her scream. She was crying by then, she knew her attempt would fail because he was much stronger than her. He dragged her from there and as all of the maids were busy with their works and the other family members were probably out of the house,there were no one who could see them. He dragged her to a basement and threw her inside.
She fell into the ground and groaned in pain. But still she managed to get up and backed away in fear. She knew it was a mistake to push him like that, he might do worse things to her.
He roughly pulled her up and pinned her body to the wall roughly making her scream in pain. He muffled her screams by his hand and grabbed her hair.
“If you scream I swear I’ll slit your throat right now.” He growled. She gulped but refused to show him that she was scared and glared at him. That made him more angry and he gripped her hair more tightly, enough to make her go numb in pain. She tried to scream so that at least someone could hear her, but nobody did.
“Will you listen and be quiet now?” He asked in a low voice which scared her more, she tried hard to not show it...but she failed. She was too scared to do anything, she just nodded her head, knowing that there was nothing she could do. His large rough hands were suffocating her.
“Good.” He said and removed his hand. She started to gasp and inhaled deeply. It felt like forever when he removed his hand. Sobs were leaving from her mouth.
He felt something in his heart...again that unknown feeling. He hated this, he hated what he was feeling at that moment. Her tears...her that vulnerable state was breaking his heart but at the same time he loved the power he had on her, he loved seeing her so scared, so helpless whenever he was around her. But a part of him always wanted to hold her....to cherish her....to show her that she was an angel....
But he knew that was not what he wanted or he does. He loved to break people until they give in to him. He enjoyed the pain.
He raised his hand to caress her cheek. Her eyes widen when she saw him touching her and backed away, sobbing more.
“Please don’t hurt me.” She whispered quietly and closed her eyes. He stopped what he was doing and stared at her. His heart was beating fast as he remembered the first time he said those words....
“Please don’t hurt us!”
He backed away from her. His heart was beating fast and his whole body was trembling at the memory.
“Why...why you said that?” He asked in his heavy tone. She stared at him in confusion.
“WHY THE FUCK YOU SAID THAT!” He screamed at her making her flinch.
He was shaking in anger...his eyes were red and he was sweating badly.
“Get out...get the fuck out of here.” He screamed again. She didn’t waste a single time and ran out of there.
He ran his fingers in his hair trying to control himself.
That was in past, that was in past. Nothing is wrong now.
He was trying to calm himself but failed miserably. He screamed in frustration and threw whatever his hand could reach of that basement.
He forgot what he left behind but this girl...this girl that day made him think of that again. He knew he was doing wrong with her but he could care less about it.
