Chapter 10: Discovering Feelings pt.1
It was about two weeks since I’ve seen Charlie. My heart ached because I wasn’t allowed to enter the hotel, making Charlie fire me not on her behalf but on her parent’s behalf.
It was around two in the morning when I arose from my so-called bed. I decided to drop by at Charlie’s house and surprise her. I knew it was a bad idea, but I missed seeing her, my heart just called out for her. I looked in my closet to find one of the most beautiful suits I could wear to impress Charlie.
I decided to go with the black with dark red vertical stripes, which include a black bow on my collar. This suit was accompanied by some long black pants and some cute dress, black shoes. I held onto my staff and teleported Charlie’s balcony in her castle.
I know it’s a bad idea, but people take risks, and this is one of the risks that I won’t regret.
I shake off some of the Dust from the teleportation and tighten my bow before walking up to her glass door, which was covered by a curtain, as knocking on it.
I couldn’t quite see inside her room, but I noticed a moving shadow. I backed away, took two steps back from the door, and waited for her to open the door. The two glass doors swing open to reveal a beautiful Charlie. She wore her nightgown, which was pink and white, making my grin turn into a smile.
“Good morning darling, did I wake you?” I asked her coming closer to her. She gave a surprisingly cute face, which made me mad a smug look.
“What are you doing here? If my parents find out that you’re in my room they’re going to—”
“They won’t find out, sweetheart. Don’t you trust me?” I hushed her with my index finger on her mouth. She sighed and let me inside. She closed her doors, and I Sat on the side of her bed.
“You have a very nice room, sweetheart. Was this your idea?” I asked her as I crossed my legs on top of the other ad place one of my hands on my knee cap. She sat were her pillow was and stumbled her words.
“A-Alastor, you really shouldn’t be here. My parents are in the n-next room...” She continued to deny the fact that she wanted me with her.
To be honest, I didn’t mind her company...
I enjoyed not being alone for once..
This is so weird..I have never felt this way about someone..
I’m so confused..
“My darling, I came here to see if you had an answer,” I told her with a grin on hag was higher then my staff. She gasped with some sniffles. She covered her face that was bursting with dark red.
“A-Alastor, I c-can’t—I’m sorry..” She finally told me as she slowly lowered her hands down from her face. My face quivered, and my grin faded into a slight frown. I sighed and shook my head to the sides.
“Alastor!” She yelled at me with tears rolling down her face. Did I make her feel this way? I approached her and hushed her, and hugged her tightly.
“Sleep well, my princess,” I kissed her forehead and teleported away from her room. I landed on the ground in front of the palace, and I just needed to the observer what soon will be mine.
I understand I come from a filthy family as well, but we would never have boughten a palace just to give hell a beautiful place to look at.
I walked backed to my apartment when I bumped into Vaggie. She was holding a clipboard in her arms, and she was clicking on her pen. I gently tapped her shoulder, making her turn around and rolling her eyes.
“What do you want?” She told me in a snarky voice. She slumped to her right and tilted her head in annoyance. I smile at her while receiving an awkward gesture form her behalf.
“W-why the fuck are you smiling at me— Charlie made you soft!” She gasped and yelled. It was now around three in the morning, and she woke up the person sleeping on the ground.
“Fuck you! I wanted to sleep in peace—”
”Don’t complain?” I said in my demon form. The homeless guy sitting on the ground looked up at me and ran away from the restaurant.
“Don’t tell him to fuck off! He was sleeping there so peacefully until YOU showed up and ruined everything!” Vaggie yelled as she threw her clipboard at me, including the pen. I managed to block the items with my arms.
”People don’t deserve to sleep on these streets,” I said, fired up. My flames began to grow larger and larger, thicker, and thicker. My nails grew, and my radio dials hurried to the sides.
Vaggie looked at me and hmphed and turned away from me. I approached her and grabbed her by her neck, making her gasp crack from the air loss.
”Look, I like you, but you’re starting to piss me off,” I said to her, strangling her neck. She tried to set herself free; meanwhile, I was moving my head closer to her face.
“L-let..m-me..g-go..” She managed to say before losing her air. I didn’t hesitate to let her go, making her fall to the ground. She started t cough ad started regaining air. She looked at me with her face all red, full of fear ad her hands all grey with scabs and scars.
“W-What the fuck is w-wrong with you! You sick bastard!” She yelled, spelled, getting up. In the process, I offer her my hand, which she gladly accepts. I pull her into a hug and lower my mouth close to her ear.
”You can’t stop me” I backed away from the hug and kiss her hand. I bow to her before I left my apartment. I turned around and walked with my staff pounding on the ground.
It’s only a matter of time before Charlie becomes my wife.
It was now around four in the afternoon when the television in the bar began to speak. I turned the stool chair to face the tv with a cup of red wine in my hand.
“Today, on the news 666, we have two essential guests who will be joining us after these commercials!” Killjoy said with excitement as the commercials started appearing on the television.
“Hey, Alastor~” Dust snickers as he coed to me. I turn around t face him and give him an unpleasant stare. He stops for a second, with eyes widen, and sat next to me.
“Where the: ‘hello, young fellow! How was your fine morning?’” Dust said as he gave his best impression of me, making me form a smile in my face. I chuckled and turned to face him.
“It’s just..the the weather is cloudy underneath me..” I told him with sincerity. He widened his eyes and raised his hands to his face to fangirl.
“Ooh, ~ does somebody have a crush on someone?” Dust playful asked me. I snickered and chugged down the last of the wine in my cup. I look at him and see him all getting railed up.
“As a matter of fact, I don’t know know,” I told him sincerely.
“I’m just very..dumbfounded by the idea of me having feelings..” I continued to say before the television spoke. Killjoy started to talk with his co-worker, interrupting our conversation.
