Caged By Lucifer-Chapter 20
Theme: He’s My Father’s Killer
By Racheal Dennis
I yawned and tried to turn but felt something preventing me. I opened my eyes with a little frown and sat up abruptly… I looked down and noticed it’s Lucifer.
He’s holding my hand in his, sleeping next to me on the bed.
Wait…. Bed?! Looking around I realized we are back in his room. I thought we were in the kitchen, how did we end up here.
Then I remembered and smacked my forehead…. I must have passed out.
I sighed and turned back to Lucifer…. I took a closer look at his features and smile.
He look so cute when’s sleeping…. So peaceful and handsome. Not that I’m just noticing how handsome he is… but I’m just taking notes of some little things.
Hmm, why do I feel like they’re inviting me to bite them…..
Slowly, I feel me leaning towards him…. bringing my face closer to his… I just wanna bite his lips a little, they look so soft and so tempting, I don’t think a little bite will hurt.
Catherine, what are you doing? I questioned myself mentally…. But I ignored the question and proceed… I want to stop myself… In fact, I should stop myself but I can’t seem to.
Just a few inches to, then…..
“Baby, just kiss me already, I’m not gonna push you away!”
I quickly sit upright and cleared my throat, snatched my hand from him and straighten my hair…. I feel my cheeks flame up in embarrassment.
I can’t believe he caught me… What an embarrassment!
He opens his eyes and sit up too, he leans forward and pecks my lips softly and smile.
“Baby, I’m all yours… You don’t have to hesitate before you use me”
I feel the flames on my cheeks increased.
“C-can we not talk about that?”
He chuckled. “You look so cute when you blush… I love your blush!”
He placed his fingers under my chin and raised my head, he look in my eyes.
“I’m your husband…. you can kiss me, flirt with me, seduce me and scold me anytime you want… You can do whatever you want to me, I ain’t gonna complain” he leans down and claim my lips.
The kiss was brief… like a few seconds but it was satisfying. Wait, what?!
Catherine, get a grip on yourself!!
He breaks the kiss and winks at me. He pulls me in for a hug and we stayed in a brief silence.
“How are you feeling now?” He asked me.
“Good! Very good!” He kissed my forehead. “Baby, I’m sorry, I didn’t know you have fire phobia… Had I known, I wouldn’t have let you near the kitchen”
I shake my head and pulled away from him.
“Don’t blame yourself, it’s my fault… I guess I overestimated myself, I thought I could could take it”
“I’m so sorry, baby”
I placed my hands on both sides of his cheeks and smiled at him.
“I said it’s fine”
“Right… Cathy, I know recovering your memories won’t be easy and I don’t want you to feel pressured or anything… So, we’re gonna take it slowly… I will help you remember slowly, is that ok with you?”
I smiled… He just said what I wanted to hear.
“Yes, you’re right… rushing the process will do more harm than good” he nods in agreement.
I don’t know why I’m so free with Lucifer… I let him get his way with me easily.. an idea suddenly pop in my head.
“Lucifer, while waiting for my memories to come back….. Let’s do something together, something that will help us familiarize with each other, something that will help us get to know each other better…..I want us to do things I don’t normally do”
“And what’s that?”
I wiggle my brows at him.
“I wanna go on a wide shopping!!”
He frowns. “Shopping?!”
“Shopping is something you don’t normally do? I remember the second time we had an encounter was in a mall… What were you doing there? Weren’t you shopping?”
I rolled my eyes… He’s surprised and I understand why. For a girl to say shopping is not something she normally does… It’s strange.
“My shopping don’t exceed 30minutes! Normal girls spend 2-3hours shopping but I can’t”
“Andy… He won’t let me, he said it’s too dangerous outside… so, I only spent 30minutes”
“Oh!” He didn’t say anything more but look deep in thoughts.
“Hmm, so, are you gonna come with me?”
“Yay!!” I’m so gonna shop until I drop….. I wanna be like other girls my age, I wanna know what’s so fun about shopping.
But taking just Lucifer with me… Is it gonna be fun? Maybe Valerie can come too and Janice….. Wait, no! I don’t like her, I’m not gonna take her!
“C-can… c-can.. you lend me some money?”
“Yeah… I didn’t bring my credit card when you kidnapped me…. So, I’m gonna bother you to lend me some money”
He frown slightly. “Why should I lend you money?”
“I.. you… ”
“Baby, how many times will I tell you? You are my wife, so naturally what’s mine is yours too… If you need money don’t ask me, just take it”
He dipped his hand in the back pocket of his pants and take out his wallet… he reached for his credit card inside and hands it to me.
“It’s under your care now, don’t ask me for money… Just use it!”
I stared at him in confusion, did he just gave me his card? Just like that? I should use it?
He’s lucky I’m not too much of a money spender… So, let’s say his card is in safe hands.
“Are you not gonna regret giving me your credit card?!” I emphasized on the credit card.
He held my face in his hands and rub our nose against each other. “No!” He replied.
He simply nods. Now I need his permission for something else…. I pray he agrees.
“Erm… I have another request”
“I want you to bring me to a nightclub!”
He pulled away from me as if I just burned him, he blinked his eyes rapidly with a deep frown on.
“Ni.. ni.. ni.. nightclub?!” He growled.
“Please… I have never been there, Anita told me it’s fun there” Anita always comes back to work the next morning and tell me about all the fun she had.
“No! You are not going!”
“Baby, you are a married woman, I don’t think you going there is appropriate…. that place is unholy, not your type of place”
“Unholy? But I heard it’s fun”
“There’s no fun there! I can give you all the fun you want but I’m not gonna let you go there!”
“No buts! It’s final, you. Are. Not. Going. There!!” His voice firm, leaving no room for arguments.
I huffed… every girl of my age go to nightclubs to have fun. Andy didn’t let me go, now Lucifer is doing the same thing.
I sighed. “Fine!” I said slightly angry.
He wrapped his arms around my waist and pulled me on his lap.
“Are you angry?”
As if it’s not obvious but I denied it anyway.
“I only thought I could go crazy just for a day!” I said in a really, really sad tone, I brought out my cutest puppy eyes and pout my lips making sure they quiver.
I’m sure he can’t say no to this expression. His eyes settle on my lips and I saw him lick his lips as if they just ran dry… He gulped loudly.
He closed his eyes and sighed deeply.
“Fine! I will take you there tomorrow but you mustn’t leave my side!”
I broke into a wide smile and crash my lips on his before I could stop myself…. But I quickly pulled away when I came back to my senses.
“S-sorry… Sorry, I was just too happy, I….” I swallowed my words as he grabbed my neck and crashed his lips on mine.
He moved his lips roughly against mine… His kiss full of hunger and urgency… It’s like he’s been craving this kiss for a long time.
He pushed his tongue forward trying to gain access in my mouth but I denied him access….. He grabbed my right [email protected] and give it a hard squeeze, I gasp and he shoved his tongue in my mouth quickly.
He pinched my n!pole and a m0an escape my mouth, it’s like that ignited a flame in him…. His tongue dominate my mouth, licking every inch of my mouth.
He sucked my tongue and lips aggressively…. I tried to catch up with him but couldn’t. He’s too fast and aggressive… It’s like he’s trying to show me his dominance.
Leaving my mouth he moved to my neck, kissing and biting it softly… I feel myself getting lost in the pleasure he’s giving me, sparks all over my body.
“Lucifer….” I m0an softly.
He flipped us… I’m laying on the bed and he’s on top of me. He look in my eyes and I saw his eyes dark….dark and filled with desire…..lust!
“Khalid… Call me Khalid!” He ordered in a hoarsed voice and attack my lips again.
I closed my eyes… His touch sending shivers down my spine.
Just when he’s about to tear my PJs… A knock interrupted. He turned his head towards the door…. If this was a disney cartoon his glare would have break down the door already.
“What?!” He roared at whoever is at the door.
“Boss, I wanna ask if you still want me to bring Janice for questioning”
“Damn it!”He groaned and got off me… I held his hand.
“You wanna question Janice?”
He nods. “Why?” I asked.
“We suspect she’s a spy”
“Hmm, so I want to interrogate her and find out if she’s really a spy and who she’s working for”
So my instincts were right…
“No, that won’t do!”
“What?” He asked.
“You can’t question her!” He looked at me and gulp.
“You might wanna sit up and explain it clearly…. You are kinda seducing me with this posture of yours!”
I blushed but sat up, he quickly cover me up and called for Chris to come in.
“Boss, should I bring her to your office?”
“No, my wife said we can’t question her”
Chris faces me.
“Why, boss lady?”
“Well, you questioning her now is of no use cause she’s gonna deny it… You are simply gonna alert her by questioning her, she’ll know you are suspecting her and she’ll be extremely careful…. then catching her red-handed will be difficult!” I explained.
Chris and Lucifer nod… I don’t know who janice is working for but Lucifer’s got many enemies, she could be working for one of them.
“Boss, boss lady is right… We are just gonna complicate things if we interrogate her” Chris supports me.
“So, baby, what do you suggest we do?” Lucifer asked me.
“Observation?!” They asked confused.
I rolled my eyes.
“Observe her for now… Keeping watching her and she’ll soon give herself away… that’s when you’ll catch her red-handed!”
“Oh!” They exclaimed simultaneously.
“That’s a brilliant idea, baby!” Lucifer kissed my cheek.
“Just do as your boss lady said!”
“Yes, boss!” He left immediately.
Lucifer faced me with a smile.
“You just showed that you are worthy to be my boss lady”
I don’t know if I can accept that as a compliment… just then his phone starts ringing, he checked it but didn’t answer it, he toss it on the nightstand and push me back on the bed gently.
“Shall we continue from where we stopped?”
“B-but your phone…. ” I trail off when it stopped ringing.
He looked at it and smirked. “It’s not important!”
Just when he’s about to claim my lips his phone starts ringing again. He growled lowly and got up.. he answered the phone.
I frown immediately I heard that name…. Anika?!
“I’m in the middle of something”
“No, I can’t come over now”
He should come over?! What is she even telling him?! What trick is she trying to play here….
“You are sick? And wounded?”
Oh! I see… this is obviously a plan to get Lucifer and her alone… Well, two can play this game… After all Lucifer is my husband, I’m his priority! I come first before anyone else!
“Ok! Ok! I’ll come over now!” He hangs up.
I smirked… Darling, you are going no where, it’s me and you!
“Baby, I’m sorry, I….”
“Arghhhhhhhhhh!!” I interrupted him with a loud scream, I clung on my stomach.
Lucifer quickly rushed to me and hold me in his arms…. Worry clouded his eyes.
“Baby! Baby! What’s wrong?! Are you ok?!” He asked worriedly.
“Hurts… It hurts…!” I cried and gasp for air.
God, forgive me for lying but I have to do this… to save my husband from a vicious woman.
“Where?! Where do it hurts?!”
“My stomach… It hurts… I can’t bear this pain… It.. hurts… ” My stomach saw that as a perfect opportunity to growl.
I’m scared it’s gonna give away my acting so I increased my scream to make it seem real.
“Your stomach?! What happened?”
I shake my head.
“I don’t know… It suddenly starts hurting.. ”
He glanced at the wall clock and cursed loudly. “Holy sh*t!! It’s 6pm and you haven’t eaten since breakfast!!”
I continue pretending as if I’m in great pain.
“Don’t worry, baby, I think it’s hunger… I’ll go prepare you some meal right way, ok?”
I nod. “Thank you, Lucifer!”
He kissed my cheek “It’s Khalid.. call me Khalid, that is the name you knew”
I don’t wanna argue with him since I’m faking stomachache, so I nod.
“Wait for me, I’ll be back soon with your meal” he didn’t wait for my reply, he rushed off.
I sighed and sat up…. Anika, you wanna play games.. well, let’s play together.
I can’t let you have Lucifer….a vicious woman like you will just help him become even more evil, I won’t let that happen. After all, he is my husband! He is Mine!
# Anika .
My phone beep, I check it and saw its a text from Lucifer. I smiled and quickly open the conversation but my smile falters.
*Anika, sorry I can’t make it. My wife needs me but don’t forget to get yourself to the hospital*
I angrily tossed the phone across my room and watch it scatter before my eyes.
I clenched my fist.
“Lucifer rejected my call for that bi**h! I’ll let her watch as she will lose Lucifer to me! He is Mine! Mine alone!”
Bi**h watch out! .
