Chapter 59: Skin Contact
My question was soon quickly answered as Felix pushed his legs with full force against the ground. He had jumped two stories high that I was left speechless with how high we were, he then landed his feet on top of the rail so carefully that it was insane how calm he was after doing something so crazy and incredible! It felt like we were flying almost, so he stepped himself down while letting me go as well. I was still so shocked by what he did, that I couldn’t help but look back down at the balcony. Were we that far down!? That’s just insane!
“You stopped crying.” Felix worded as he began to undo his tie.
“Huh......oh, yeah I guess so,” I responded as I placed my hand against my cheek.
It was dry but still cold from the freezing air. So I stepped myself inside his room where it was warm and settling. I then watched Felix enter his bathroom and come back out with a towel in hand, he then made his way towards me and placed it on top of my head.
“Dry yourself off, I’ll be in the bathroom changing.”
He said to me as I watched him re-enter the bathroom, he then closed the door behind him as I heard the door being locked. Pulling the towel down from my head, I looked down at my dress finally.
“Oh my god! Was my dress this transparent the whole time!”
I voiced out to myself in disbelief, was that why Felix made me wear his jacket! No wonder Ren couldn’t take me seriously, how can he when I’m practically naked underneath this. An what’s worse is that I was with Felix when he was carrying me away from him. So, of course, he going to think I’m probably sleeping with him also! I can’t believe this...this is so embarrassing!
Annoyed with myself, I began to take these wet clothes off of me with anger and tried to dry myself off quickly before Felix came back out. I hate this! Why does everything always happen to me!? Why can’t I just go back to my peaceful life back home...Wrapping myself with the towel, I picked up my wet dress along with Felix’s jacket in placed them outside the balcony where they could dry more quickly. However, once I finished laying them down, I heard a loud scream coming from next door! That’s when it dawned on me, Elijah’s room is right next door to Felix’s isn’t it?!
Turning my head towards the screams, I saw both window doors being swung wide open to the other balcony. I watched in horror an in disbelief as I saw Elijah carrying one of the girls I saw him with from earlier in his hands. His mouth was covered in blood along with his hands, the girl he was holding was naked and all she did was scream out in agony and terror as Eli held her against the rail! My heart began to beat rapidly with fright and my whole body and soul couldn’t stop shaking from what I was seeing!
And before I knew it, Elijah stuck his hand inside her chest and pulled out her heart! He then pushed the silent dead body over the balcony and I couldn’t hold in my screams any longer as I prepared to yell in the horror of what I just witnessed! Someone quickly had covered my mouth shut and all that could be heard we’re my muffled screams. Yet I’m sure Elijah heard my voice because he then slowly began to turn his head towards my direction! But before he can even see me I was dragged back inside the room with such force that I didn’t realize who was holding me this whole time!
I heard Felix whispered close to my ear as he looked into my eyes to comfort me. But there was nothing that he can do or say that can stop my beating heart from hurting! How can Elijah kill these girls without any remorse, it’s like he enjoys murdering others! I understand that this is the only way to satisfy his hunger, but it’s completely horrible and just purely evil!
“F*ck, curse that stupid brother of mine,” Felix muttered out his words to me as he suddenly pulled the towel off my body!
I tried to yell out my words but Felix still had his hand over my mouth! Just what the hell does he think he’s doing! He told me he wouldn’t lay a finger on me! So why is he doing this!?
“I need you to trust me, so no matter what happens... don’t say a word.”
Felix voiced out with panic as he finally released my mouth open, however, what he did next made it hard for me to hold back my tongue. He had picked up my naked body and placed me up against the wall and had my face facing the outside of the balcony. My breasts were pressed up against his exposed chest along with my lower parts pressing against his cold belt that was wrapped around his pants, it made my whole body tingle with chills as he forced my legs to wrap around his lower waist. His face was so close to mine that I could feel his warm breath hitting against my neck. I’m just relieved that he’s still wearing his pants!
But why?! Why is he doing this? What reason does he have for-Before I knew it, the doors to Felix’s room are slammed open! And I quickly jolted myself forward closer to Felix’s body, someone has barged in! But who!?
“I thought I heard someone.....what are you doing?”
That voice! It’s definitely him! What....why is Eli here!? I quickly bit my lower lip and tried not to breath, I was so afraid that he will notice who I am, even my breathing! Waite did Felix hear him coming towards his room?! Was that his reason for doing this!?
“Do I need a reason to come to my room? I was in need of f*cking a human tonight, my king.”
Felix answered back teasingly, as he gripped his hands on my upper thighs! He was close to touching my ass so I hope his hands stay where they’re at! But I understand why he’s doing this, if Eli finds out it’s me. I could only imagine what he might do to me and Felix!
“Strange, I thought you’ve already fed on human souls hours ago. Is your age finally catching up to you?”
Elijah responded with an evil laugh in the end. I couldn’t see what facial expression he was making, but I could picture him giving off an obnoxious smirk as he spoke.
“Of course not, I was just craving for this body I’m holding,” Felix answered back dangerously as he pushed me further against the wall, it was like he was intentionally doing it on purpose!
“Just who is this one? She doesn’t seem like the ones we have locked up in the cellars.”
Elijah asked sternly as I heard his footsteps coming closer. My heart was continuing to beat quickly at such an alarming rate that I’m sure even Felix can hear it! This is bad! If Elijah gets any closer, he’s sure to find out it’s me! Think Luna! What can I do to make him go away!?
“She’s one of the offerings I was given personally by one of the royal families, now then if that’s all you’ve come to ask. Would you mind giving us some privacy, I prefer sleeping with my women behind closed doors.” Felix worded out calmly as he held on to me tightly as if he was afraid to let me go.“Which royal family gave you this one, she’s doesn’t smell like a virgin.”
“She’s-” I quickly cut Felix off from what he was trying to say and placed a deep kiss on his lips, it was the only thing I could do to not make Elijah suspicious!
Felix can only lie for so long before he runs out of what to say! He’s practically risking his own life right now by what he’s doing! So I have to do my part! Even if it means kissing a demon! I just hope Felix doesn’t kill me himself for doing this!
However, I was taken off guard when Felix returned my kiss! His lips were very dominating and soft that it was hard to believe that this was happening! Yet our kiss didn’t last long, because Felix quickly pulled away and placed his hand behind my head. Making me snuggle up against his neck, I was breathless and could hear not only mine but Felix as well who was breathing in heavily.
“Your...killing my mood, don’t you have anything else better to do. Like, check on how Luna is doing...”
Felix responded heavily towards Elijah. I then wrapped both my arms around Felix’s neck as my body was beginning to get tired. I wanted Eli to hurry up and leave so I can get away from this awkward situation I was in! I could feel my own eyes beginning to water as silence filled up the room.
Elijah voiced out angrily as I heard his footsteps stomping harshly against the ground, but at least they were getting farther away from us.
“Don’t think I didn’t see you standing right next to her in the ballroom, if I ever see you getting any closer to Luna then that. I really will kill you.”
Elijah raised his voice loudly with hatred as he slammed the door shut with such tremendous force that I was able to feel the walls vibrate from behind me.
An right as Eli left the room, Felix immediately put me back down and placed something inside my hand, he then walked away from me without even looking at my direction. He didn’t even say a word either as he went back to the restroom. It didn’t bother me that he was ignoring me, it was just so weird how close our bodies were just a second ago and now it feels like it never happened. My body felt the sudden chill once he pulled away, however, his body was honestly keeping me warm...
“You should go back downstairs, I’m sure Elijah will be looking for you.”
I heard Felix speak loudly against the other side of the door, he was acting very strange. I mean, I get what he did was necessary. But maybe kissing him was the limit?
“Y...yeah...umm..hey...I’m...I’m sorry for kissing you earlier. I just panicked and wasn’t sure on what else to do, so...I’m sorry if I offended you.”
I apologized with hesitation in my voice as I quickly changed back into my dress. It wasn’t fully dry but you couldn’t tell it was wet either. But most importantly it was no longer see-through so I didn’t have to worry about anyone seeing my naked body.
“There’s no need for an apology, a kiss like that wouldn’t offend me, Luna. But next time...don’t kiss someone so freely.”
He responded calmly, I then heard the shower sprinklers being turned on soon after. I guess he’s gonna wash himself right now...
Opening the door of his room, I looked back at Felix’s bedroom. It really felt empty in here, the only thing that catches my eye is his piano. Finally exiting the room, I quickly hurried my way to the ballroom where I could still see many warlocks and witches roaming around the party. As I looked steadily around the room, I tried to see if I can spot Eli anywhere. I wanted to make sure if he really was looking for me, I can make myself known. Gripping onto the rail on the second floor I realize I had something in my hand? That’s right! Felix put something in my palm before he went to take a shower.
As I opened my hand, I looked down and saw that it was the blindfold that he had taken off of me when we were in the garden. He did a lot for me tonight, why though? Oh! I forgot to thank him for taking me to see Ren! Even though things didn’t go so well, I still have to thank him...
“So this is where you’ve been hiding, Luna.”
I voiced out scarcely, after seeing what he did tonight. He was no longer covered in blood but his eyes were pitch black and he looked more terrifying.
“I...I couldn’t...I didn’t feel safe down there so I...I decided to just watch the party from up here.” I responded untruthfully as I avoided his stare.
“No one will touch you, Luna. As long as you always wear this around your neck, everyone will know who’s family you belong to.” He said to me calmly as he pointed at the collar around my neck.
“Luna...you have to realize that this isn’t the world I chose to live in. It’s the world that chose me, I’ve done horrible things that I wish I can take back, but the one choice I’ll never regret making. Is loving you.”
Elijah responded in a serious tone as he came from behind wrapping his arms around my waist. He then began to leave light sweet kisses around the back of my neck, it’s difficult to believe that this was the same man that brutally killed that girl earlier. An I’m sure he killed the other girl as well...
“Eli, what would you say....if I told you to stop killing people...”
His kisses finally stopped, and he slowly turned my body around to face him. He then grabbed each side of my face and made me look at him, his eyes looked hurt as he looked deeply into my eyes. His forehead was then leaning on mine as he closed the gap between us.
“If I stopped killing people....do you promise to stay by my side forever and love me for the rest of your life?” He asked with sorrow in his voice as he looked at me with desperation in his eyes for some kind of answer I could give him. If I can make him stop murdering people...then maybe....maybe he’ll change, for the better...but even if he did change. Can I even forgive him for what he’s done already? So I thought long and hard for my answer as I stared back at him intently.
“Yes...” I answered while feeling my chest tighten with guilt.
