Caged By Lucifer-Chapter 14
Theme: He’s My Father’s Killer
By Racheal Dennis
# Lucifer .
I strode into my warehouse, Chris is busy torturing the motherf**ker that refuses to pay my money and dared to steal from me too.
“Got anything from him yet?”
“Yes, boss… Like I said, that Andy Mars is no ordinary”
“What did he say?”
“He said Andy Mars sent three of them to steal your containers….And threatened to kill their family if they failed on the mission”
Hmm…Andy Mars! What is your dirty secret… thankfully Catherine isn’t here to hear this, she wouldn’t have believed it.
“Boss, what should I do with him? Should I kill him?”
I would’ve said yes…but for the promise I made Cathy.
“Let him go!”
“I promised my wife I’d let him go, so let him go!”
He didn’t say anything more, he simply nods.
It’s been hours since Lucifer left, I’ve also had dinner and it’s time for bed….not that I was waiting for him.
I took a short shower and change into a cute PJs, then I went to bed.
# The_next_morning .
I woke up feeling the need to use the bathroom, I tried to get up but something keeps pulling me down.
Looking down, I saw an arm perfectly wrapped around my waist…. Lucifer’s arm around my waist.
When did he get back? And what is he doing in the same bed as me?
“Lucifer!!!” I screamed his name.
His eyes snapped open instantly and he quickly reached for his gun, looking around as if he’s looking for any danger.
I pushed him off and he falls off the bed with a loud thud…he groans and got up quickly.
“Baby, are you ok?” He asked me.
I glared at him.
“What are you doing in here?”
He frown slightly looking confused.
“What am I doing here? This is our room….of course I’ll be here” he replied.
Right. This is his room. But still we shouldn’t share a bed.
“Then you shouldn’t have sleep on the bed with me!”
“Why shouldn’t I? You are my wife”
“I’m not your wife! Stop saying that!” This man is a psycho. “I can’t be married to a killer!!”
He stared at me with his mouth slightly open….I see hurt flashed through his eyes.
“I’m not that bad you know….I’m only bad to people who offended me”
“You….” I was interrupted as the door slammed open and a lady barged in.
He rushed towards Lucifer and held his face in her hands….her eyes held tenderness.
“Lucifer! Lucifer! Are you ok? Are you wounded anywhere? Are you alright?” She asked worriedly.
Worry lines form in her forehead….I simply stared stunned. Is this one of his one night stands too?
Honestly speaking, she doesn’t look like a….no, I can’t say such foul words. She is so gorgeous that I feel myself getting jealous of her beauty.
“I’m fine….I need you for something else” Lucifer said.
She breath out in relief….hello, I’m still here.
She turned to me and glared at me intensely.
“And who are you? Aren’t you done? Get dressed and get out!!”
What?! Don’t tell me she is mistaking me for a…..
“Hey, Anika, she’s not a…..”
She raised her hand and stopped Lucifer.
“Luci not now” she moved closer and pushed me off the bed. “Hey, bitch! I said leave!”
I got up and glared at her….now I take back my words….she isn’t gorgeous and I don’t feel jealous of her!
Lucifer rushed to my side and check my body for injuries.
“Baby, are you ok?” He asked me.
“Baby?!” She asked angrily. “Lucifer, I need explanation here!”
“Anika, this is my wife! Show some respect!”
She takes a step back, I guess what Lucifer said caught her off guard.
“Your wife! When did you got married? How come I knew nothing about it? And what about me? What am I to you?” She asked.
I also look at Lucifer, waiting for his response….I also want to know who she is.
Wait….why does it sound like I’m jealous?! No, I just wanna know who she is!
I narrowed my eyes, impatiently waiting for Lucifer to tell me who exactly this woman standing in front of me is.
“Luci, what am I to you?” She asked, holding Lucifer’s hands and staring in his eyes.
I rolled my eyes…. this is the repercussions of his whoring around.
Lucifer removed his hands from hers and wrapped them around my waist.
“Anika, you are my friend….”
“Friend?!” She interrupts.
“Yes. You are my doctor and friend…. No, you are more than my friend… You’re more like my sister, my younger sister” he said.
I don’t know why, but my lips curved in a small smile…. It’s almost like I felt relieved at his words.
“Luci, how can I be your sister? I don’t wanna be your sister, I….”
“Alright, Anika, go wait in the living room”
“No! I…. ”
“Don’t get me angry!” He grits out.
Anika glared at me maliciously before stomping out of the room. When I’m sure she’s out of hearing, I push myself away from Lucifer and sat on the bed with my arms crossed across my chest.
I found myself fuming in anger…. don’t ask why, cause I also don’t know.
Lucifer knelt in front of me and starts massaging my legs gently.
He looked at me and smiled nervously.
“Baby….” I throw him a glare and he gulps loudly. “Er… Are you angry?”
“Humph!! You tell me if I am!”
“I’m sorry about that… though I don’t know why you are angry, but I’m sorry”
I slaps his hands away from my legs and moved a little away from him.
“You don’t know why I’m angry? Didn’t you heard her call me a bitch?!” I said angrily…. Catherine, why are you being angry.
“I’m sorry, I’ll talk to her about and let her know who you are to me”
“And to think she was the one being bitchy…. ” I scoffed. “I don’t blame her anyway…. She’s scared I’m gonna snatch her bedmate from her!!”
“Her bedmate? What do you mean?”
“I mean, she’s scared I’m gonna snatch her boyfriend from her”
He chuckles lightly.
“Ok, baby, I don’t know what funny thoughts are really running through your head…. Me and Anika? Bedmates? Boyfriend?” He snorts. “It’s impossible!”
“What do you impossible? You wanna deny you haven’t slept with her?” I pass him an accusing glare.
Oh my goodness…. Why do I sound like a jealous housewife? It’s not as if I like Lucifer or something!
“I swear, I haven’t sleep with her yet”
My eyes grew bigger.
“Yet?! So you are thinking of sleeping with her?!” I asked in an alarmed tone…. calm down, Catherine! I scolds myself mentally.
“No! No! No! I’m not thinking of sleeping with her! I will never ever think of sleeping with her….. I promise!”
I didn’t say a word, I simply kept my long face on. But I’m actually feeling happy hearing those words from him.
He sat on the bed and move closer to me, he leans forward and I felt his hot breath on my neck…. Making me shiver.
“And besides…. I have you now…” He wrap his arm around my waist and lifts me on his lap…. He nuzzles his nose on my neck and takes a deep breath…. Like he’s sniffing me.
What is he now? A dog?!
“….. And besides, you can satisfy my hunger whenever I’m feeling horny…. like right now!” I quickly pushed him back on the bed and got up.
“In your dreams!” I said… I’m feeling so flustered right now…. like my whole body is on fire.
“Oh, baby, in my dream we already have eight kids!” He said.
I point my finger at him….
“You….you…..” I’m speechless…like he’s driving me crazy.
“I what? In my dream you’re already pregnant with the ninth one….”
I pulled him up and begin to push him towards the door.
“What are you doing?” He asked.
“What? Are you asking me out of our room?”
“Yes, get out! Since you’re not gonna say something sensible!”
“Wait….so you admit it’s our room now?” He asked teasingly.
I narrowed my eyes and put my hands on my waist, he quickly steps out.
“Fine! I’m out!”
I slammed the door on his face and rest my back against it…my lips curved up in a smile.
Why am I smiling? What’s funny?
# Anika .
That bitch! How can Lucifer get married to another woman….. I have been by his side all these years, patiently loving him silently… Hoping he’d realize my feelings.
I can’t let that bitch stay…. She must leave!
“Anika!” Lucifer called from behind me.
I quickly got up and rushed towards him…. I went for a hug but he stopped me.
“Luci, who is that woman?”
“I already told you… She’s my wife!”
I shake my head.
“I don’t believe you… You can’t settle for one woman, she must’ve seduced you… You… ”
“Anika!” He cuts me off. “She didn’t seduce me, she is really my wife and we’ve been married for long”
“Listen, let me make it clear to you…. You are just my doctor! I allowed you free access to my mansion because we’ve been together since childhood…. Your dad is the reason I’m alive today that’s why I have always kept you by my side.
But you must know your place. You are my doctor and she is my wife! I expect you to give her equal respect as me!”
“I’m not done! One more thing, I’m no longer living alone…. Don’t barge into my room in the future!”
I scoffed mentally…. This is not Lucifer, he has changed. The Lucifer I know won’t lecture me for a mere whore…. I know what to do.
I’ll make her leave… I’ll do frustrate her life!
“Anika! Are you listening?!”
I forced a tight smile on my lips.
“Good! Now the reason I called you is because… I want you to run a little test for my wife, she seems to lost her memories and I wanna know why!”
She lost her memories? I smirk…. Now things just got easier for me.
“Go on! I’m gonna make a call”
I nod and hurried upstairs.
Few minutes after Lucifer left, the door open and Anika came in. She glared at me.
What’s her problem?
“Hey bitch! Don’t think I’ll let you have Lucifer…. He’s mine!”
I ignored her…. I don’t wanna say any foul words and commit sin.
“Here’s a little warning for you, Lucifer doesn’t do relationships… Whatever you think you have with him is just a joke to him! So stop wasting your time!”
Humph! Like I care about Lucifer… If only she knew I’m thinking of ways to escape from here.
She dropped her medical kit and sat on the edge of the bed.
“What are you doing?”
“To kill you!” She growled and I flinched back…. Is she being serious?
“W-what…. Y-you…” I stutter not knowing what to say…. I mean, I’m too young to die.
She grabbed my hand and stabbed the syringe in…. withdraw a little of my blood out and got up.
I look at in confusion.
“What do you want with my blood!” I asked alarmed.
She smiled evilly and I kinda cower away…. But she shakes her head.
“Your blood is no importance to me… Lucifer wants me to do some tests for you”
“But I’m warning you, stay away from Lucifer!”
Hmm… This woman is evil, if Lucifer ends up with her…. I don’t wanna imagine what will become of him.
I know I don’t like him… But I can’t let him end up with this woman… She’ll totally destroy him. I will fight for him… I must fight for him.
“Lucifer is my husband! I can’t stay away from him… You are the other woman here, so, you back off!” I challenge her in the most intimidating voice I could muster up.
“Are you challenging me?!”
“I’m not! I’m only claiming what’s Mine!”
“You… I… Ugh! Just you watch and see…. I’ll make you regret your decision!” She picked her kit and storms out angrily.
I released a breath I didn’t even know I was holding. Why did I just said I’ll fight for Lucifer? Can I really?
Wait…. What is wrong with me?
I said I don’t like him… but why do I wanna help him get rid of this woman?!
Catherine! You must be losing your mind! .
