Caged By Lucifer-Chapter 5
Theme: He’s My Father’s Killer
By Racheal Dennis
“Grandma, we are leaving now” I told grandma.
Currently, Andy, grandma and I are outside, standing next to Andy’s car getting set to leave.
“Alright dear, take very good care of yourself. Don’t forget to eat in time and rest early too” she said.
I nod. “You too grandma, don’t tire out yourself”
She laughs and caress my cheeks fondly. “My beautiful granddaughter!”
She turned to Andy and pulled his ear. “And you, rascal, make sure to take care of my granddaughter… and put a ring on it next time you come here!”
Andy nods quickly and tries to get away from grandma’s grip.
“Yes, yes, grandma!”
She lets go of his ear and turn back to me, she pulled me in for a brief hug.
“You two should take care of each other!” She whispered to me.
“Good, now get in the car or you might be late for work!”
I rolled my eyes. Today is actually my day off, but I’m not gonna let her know that or she won’t let me leave.
Andy open the door and I got in, he entered after me and start the car. Grandma wave at us and I wave her back, a big smile on her face. We continue waving until we are out of sight.
I sighed and fall back on my seat.
“Grandma can be a handful sometimes” Andy said.
“Yeah” I agreed.
Then, I suddenly remembered something. “Why did you promised grandma you’d propose to me… what about the girl you love? Grandma will be disappointed to find out it’s not me!”
He simply chuckles lightly.
“Trust me, she won’t be the least disappointed”
I’m not in the mood to argue with him,so I didn’t say nothing. A comfortable silence fell on us, I stare out the window, trying to count trees as we drive past them.
“Right, Cat, do you know Lucifer?”
Lucifer? I stilled as last night’s dream replayed in my mind. I got married to Lucifer in my dream….that man!
“Cat?” Andy snap his fingers across my face and I blinked back to reality.
“Do you know him?”
I shake my head quickly. “N-no!”
He furrow his eyebrows together.
“I swear, I don’t know him!”
He nods. “Hmm, good. In the future stay away from him, he’s bad news!”
“Do you know him?”
“No, I only came across him once and it wasn’t a good meeting….I heard you called out his name in your sleep last night, so I thought you knew him”
Andy met with him? How is that possible?
I better not think too much about it…I also met him once and I didn’t plan to meet him. Maybe they also met coincidentally.
“Anywhere you meet him, don’t look him in the eyes, steer clear of him…he is a very bad man, he kills innocent people for fun and rapes girls that refused to give in to him”
Huh? That bad?
“So, you must stay away from him…avoid bumping into him at all cost!”
“Ok, I heard you”
He narrowed his eyes down at me, but soon smile and faces back to the road.
I really need to visit church today…I must pray for forgiveness and pray to God that I shouldn’t see him again….ever again!
“Here are your winnings, sir!”
I smirk and look at my opponent’s face, he stares at the table in confusion.
“Wanna go for another round?” I asked him.
He raised his head and glared at me, my smirk grew wider.
“No! I give up!” He grits out, he got up and left angrily.
I hate him… he’s a bad man, taking money from the poor to enrich himself. He thinks he can do the same to me by cheating me, I know every trick he pulled.
“Chris, get the winnings, we are paying father Sean a visit!”
He stopped and stared at me.
“Boss, you… Father Sean?”
“Lucifer in church?!”
“Yes! After all father Sean is my old friend”
“Get the winnings!”
I got up and walk towards the exit… I exit the casino and head towards my car.
Few minutes later, Chris came out with all my winnings, he put them in the boot and got in the car.
“Boss, your containers have been found… The boys reported that the thief escaped”
“They should find him and bring him to me alive!”
“Yes, boss!” He begin to type on his phone.
“Alright, Cat, take care of yourself….I’m going to the office”
Andy leans forward and kisses my cheek, and he pat my head.
He drives off and I entered our apartment to get ready for church…then after that’ll hit the mall and buy some necessities.
Why did Catherine screamed his name last night? Could it be what I’m thinking?
I reach for my phone and dialed Don’s number, he picked up after a few rings.
“Andy, what’s up?”
“Erm… Have you spot Lucifer around your restaurant lately?” I asked him.
He paused and I heard some shuffling, like he’s walking… After few seconds of silence, he speaks.
“No. Why are you suddenly asking about him?” He whispered.
“Cat, she called his name last night… I’m thinking maybe she came across him”
“Have you asked her?”
“Yeah, she said she doesn’t know him”
I hear him sigh softly.
“Watch her closely for me…. Don’t let her leave when it’s her close time, until I come get her myself” I told him.
“I have to go, I’m heading to my office”
“No problem, later!”
I hanged up and concentrate on the road…. Lucifer and Catherine… I must watch them carefully, I can’t let them meet.
