Chapter 52

Dimitri smirked at my blushing cheeks. “It’s cute how you think I haven’t seen what’s underneath that sexy little dress of yours.” He chuckled lightly as he leaned down, his hot breath lightly brushing over my skin, sending many wonderful shivers through me. “I’ve seen everything love.” I blushed hard coming to the realization that everything Devon and Kenneth told me was true.

I couldn’t believe that I loved Dimitri. Well actually that’s not too hard to believe. But what’s hard to believe is that he loved me too and that we were in a relationship. I didn’t get how I could get someone as attractive as him to feel that way about me. It was insane to think. I was so sure this was a dream, but the pain I felt in my ankle said otherwise.

“Can I check?” Dimitri asked with a serious look on his face now as he grabbed onto the hem of my dress again. I couldn’t believe it but I slowly nodded my head yes. I looked away as he slowly lifted my dress up, the cold air hitting my skin. He gently placed his warm fingers on a bruise on my stomach, causing me to feel slight pain. I finally decided to look at Dimitri, and he looked angry. Really angry.

“I bruise easily.” I said, hoping that would lessen his anger. “I’m used to it.”

“Used to it?” He growled out, my words seeming to fuel his anger even more. “Why the hell are you used to it? You shouldn’t be!”

I pulled my dress down and sat up, pushing his hands away from me. “Why are you so angry? It’s just a bruise.” I said, not getting why he was so mad. “And besides, I’m the one with the bruise. Not you. So I don’t get why you care.” My eyes meeting his angry gaze straight on.

“I don’t want to see you hurt. Ever. Even if it is a small bruise. And why wouldn’t I care?” He asked sounding really defensive, pushing my hair away from my face.

“You’re the Demon King! You’ve hurt so many humans. You’ve killed so many. I don’t get why you’d care about a small bruise. Anyways, forget about that. I have to go back to Earth. My friends are waiting for me. I’m supposed to drive them home. Can you send me back?” I asked causing him to stare back at me in silence for a bit.

“Sure.” He finally said, stroking my hair lightly. “Do you want me to fix your ankle for you first before you go?”

“No thanks, I’d rather not feel more pain.” I said causing Dimitri to stare back at me wide-eyed.

“How do you know it hurts when I heal?” He asked causing me to shrug my shoulders. I just knew. Somehow, someway.

“I don’t know. Lucky guess?” I said not sure why it mattered that I knew. “Can I go back home now?”

He didn’t say anything except lean over and press his lips hard over mine. I gasped, my eyes widening at the fact that someone as hot as him was kissing me. And the Demon King of all people too. I couldn’t believe it. I quickly got over the shock and closed my eyes, losing myself in him and his touch, completely surrendering to him. His lips moved so smoothly over mine, so in tune with me as if they were made just for me. His touch was feather light but it ignited a fire so bright and strong inside of me, it was beginning to consume me entirely. I wrapped my arms around his neck, pressing myself impossibly close against him, never wanting to let go. All rational thoughts left my brain as he kissed me, so desperately and passionately. Everything felt so right and perfect, I never wanted to let go of this moment. It was so perfect. He held onto me as if I was his everything, and I held tightly onto him the same way.

He began pulling away soon but I wouldn’t let go. I didn’t ever want to. I don’t think I had ever wanted something as bad as I wanted him right now. He seemed to fill that empty void in my heart that I had been feeling these past couple days and the thought of letting go of him hurt. The thought of going back to Earth without him was really painful and I didn’t get why. Maybe it was because I had loved him. Maybe because I felt so complete with him beside him. Maybe because he was the someone that I had always been looking for, the one that all my friends told me I’d eventually find. I didn’t even remember anything about him, yet I could still feel the strong bond we had shared and still share.

Dimitri pulled away from me causing me to feel really disappointed. I wanted to keep going but knew that, that wasn’t plausible at the moment. We were both breathing heavy as we rested our foreheads against each other’s. “You have to go Izzie.” He breathed out causing me to shake my head no. I didn’t want to go. I didn’t want to leave. I believed everything that had been told to me. I could feel the love between us and just how strong it was, how strong it still is, even when I have lost all my memories.

“I don’t want to.” I said holding him tightly to me. “Devon and Kenneth told me everything. I want my memories back. I want to help you. I believe this all.”

“No Izzie. You have to go back. I’m surrendering myself to the Shadow tomorrow, and I don’t want you here for it. There’s nothing you can do to change that.” Dimitri said causing me to shake my head no and lightly kiss his jaw. “I made a deal with the Shadow Izzie. It promised not to hurt anyone if I surrender myself.”

“It’s all a lie. Devon told me everything. Look I don’t remember anything, but from what Devon told me about them, I think we can defeat them.” I exclaimed causing him to sigh in frustration.

“Izzie, just go back to Earth and forget about this. Please!” He said causing me to quietly glare down at the bedsheets. “I don’t want to talk about this.” He sounded pissed and I just felt upset.

“You know what? Fine! I don’t care about you anyways! I don’t even remember you! You can go and die for all I care! You’ve killed enough people already. You deserve nothing good.” I spat out in anger as I scrambled off the bed, ignoring the pain in my ankle.

“Izzie-”

“Shut up! I don’t want to hear your bullshit!” I said as I walked out of the room.

I felt horrible for what I said, I mean Devon did tell me the reason he killed humans. He kind of had no choice. But he was pissing me off. He clearly doesn’t care to live. And he took my memory away, didn’t he? So I shouldn’t care about him. I can’t anyways since I have no memory of him. All I know is that I loved him. But that doesn’t matter anymore because he doesn’t care enough about me or any of the people that he loves. If he did care, he would have tried to save himself. Because doesn’t he know how much everyone that loves him is going to miss him?

But I don’t get why I care. That’s his problem. Not mine. He’s nothing to me, not anymore at least. I should just care about myself and my drunk friends. They’re going to need a ride home and I need to get back in time to take them home.

My ankle was pissing me off even more. Like does it really need to hurt right now?

“Bella!” I heard Devon exclaim my name as he came running towards me. “I think we might be able to get your memories back.”

“How?” I asked causing him to hold a glass vial out towards me containing a dark red liquid. “This.” He said, holding it out to me. “Esther, you don’t remember her, but she made it. She said she’s used it on others before and it tends to do the trick. It should help you recall your forgotten memories. She usually uses it on people who’ve had a really bad injury and have forgotten things, but she thinks it could work on you since Dimitri didn’t really get rid of your memories. They’re still there. He just hid them from your conscious mind.”

“Dimitri’s dumb and annoying. I’d rather not remember him and the moments I spent with him. Now just help me get back to Earth.” I demanded causing Devon to look at me desperately shaking his head.

“No Bella, please! You have to help. Only you can.” Devon said grabbing onto my arm.

“Okay look, I’ll drink this. And if I get my memories back, then we’ll see what I decide to do. And if I don’t get my memories back, then I’m going back.” I said causing Devon to look down at the ground in silence.

“But Bella-”

“I gave you a deal. If you want it, take it. If you don’t then I want to go back to Earth and you will send me back.” I said sternly causing him to nod his head in agreement.

“Here you go.” He said handing the glass vial to me. “Esther did say it would take some time though. So we won’t know until a couple days pass.”

“Dimitri said he’s planning on surrendering himself tomorrow. There’s no point in even asking me to help. I can’t stop him and help him in just one day. So just let me go.” I said before drinking the liquid in the vial.

“If you don’t want to help. Why’d you drink that?” Devon asked curiously.

“Well you see Devon. Maybe I want my memories back. It honestly feels like a part of me is missing, and I’d like that back.” I said handing the empty vial back to Devon. “Now please open a portal for me.”

“You’ll regret this Bella. You’ll regret this so much. You’ll hate yourself when you get your memories back. You have such a good chance to help him and you’re just throwing it away.” Devon said holding onto my arm. He was really annoying me now.

“I won’t regret anything! I’ll know that there wasn’t anything I could do to change his mind. He’s really stubborn anyways.” I said shaking his hand off my arm. He stayed silent for a few seconds staring back at me.

“You know I’ve lived for over two centuries. And I don’t think I’ve never met anyone who loves someone as much as Dimitri loves you. Dimitri would do anything for you. Absolutely everything. If he was put in your situation, he’d try his hardest to help you. I know he would. Yet you can’t seem to do the same.” His eyes had hardened with anger as he opened up a portal for me.

“You can’t expect me to help someone I don’t remember. I don’t remember loving him. You can’t blame me. I mean, I felt the bond between us but it’s not enough for me to really know how I felt for him. You have to understand things from my point of view too Devon.” I tried to explain.

“I get that Bella. I understand. But you should at least try and help. Not because you know you loved him, but because you’re a good person. I am so desperately asking for your help but you won’t even give it a chance.” Devon said before he started walking away. I watched him walk away, his words hitting me hard.

But then I looked at the portal, and decided that I should just go back. There really was no point in helping Dimitri. He couldn’t be saved. That’s what I convinced myself as I jumped into the portal and made my way back to Earth.
