Hellbound With You Chapter 114
113 Miracles Can Happen
Upon hearing Abi call his name, Alex seemed to have been pulled out from his deep thoughts. His gaze snapped towards Abi and he cleared his throat, almost as if he too was hiding something at that moment.
"I don't understand why these characters are doing this," he then told her in his normal tone and expression. "Do you?" he asked, his eyes seemed to be burning with something strange as he asked that. There was no way Abi could tell what that unfathomable gaze of his was saying so she could only think that it might be some intense interest.
"Mmm I do I think I do. If I try to put myself in the character's shoes, I would also do the same," she answered honestly and certainly, causing Alex to crease his brows.
"Why would you do that?" Alex's face was serious and his gaze became even deeper as he stared at her. His gaze was probing and Abi felt like he might have found her words a little suspicious. That thought scared Abi. She had thought about this possibility when she picked this book and particularly the chapter. She knew there was a risk that Alex might pick up on something but even then, she still chose this book. This book meant a lot to her and that was the reason why she put this activity on her wishlist and that particular chapter especially had an important place in her heart. She wanted to hear it from Alex's mouth because she thought that even if her wish of getting married would never be fulfilled, listening to the story of Zero's and Hina's experiences from Alex's mouth would be enough for her.
Alex didn't know how much Abi was struggling to control her emotions as she answered him. "Because if I only had a little time left, I would want to experience life to the fullest with the person I love most in the world." She managed to keep her cool and answered him normally. "Wouldn't you? In fact, if you agree to marry me, I also will marry you no matter what," Abi replied before she suddenly looked at him with twinkling eyes as a huge grin formed on her face. "Alex, will you mar "
The man immediately looked like a vein would soon pop on his forehead as he cut her off. "If you want me to finish this"
Before Alex could even complete his sentence, Abi acted like she zipped her lips then threw away the key.
Seeing that the man's expression changed back to normal, Abi secretly sighed in relief. That was good. It seemed that he didn't suspect a thing.
As Alex continued reading, Abi slowly got better control of her emotions and she stayed still like a well-behaved child. She closed her eyes and her face now looked peaceful as she listened to him, imagining the story clearly in her head, imagining herself and Alex in place of the characters.
The story became even more emotional as it went on. Abi never opened her eyes again as she let herself get lost in the words of the story and Alex's voice. As Alex continued reading, she imagined the scenes in her mind and Abi felt her heart start to clench from the pain. She felt what Hina was feeling at that moment and it was bittersweet.
""After we said our vows, we were pronounced as husband and wife. I kissed Hina softly in front of all our friends and family who bore witness to the moment I promised to give her my love and everything I have, in sickness and in health, and I'd never felt so good about anything"" Alex trailed off.
For the third time, he took a pause. He glanced at the girl on his lap and when he saw how peaceful her face was with her eyes closed, Alex didn't know why but he placed his hand between Abi's neck and chest.
Abi felt his hand and she too lifted hers and placed it on top of his without opening her eyes.
It was then that Alex realized what he had done. He was surprised but he immediately returned his gaze towards the book and began reading. For some reason, he kind of wanted to know what would come next, which was again something surprising for him. He never cared about things like this before. It didn't even catch a tiny bit of his attention. And yet, here he was
Before he knew it, he actually truly wanted to read until the end to see what kind of words were waiting on the last page.
""Our first dance as man and wife was certainly a memorable one, but not for the reason I would have liked. At that time, my illness was triggered and I nearly collapsed on the ground. I was glad that my best man caught me in time. I saw the worry in my bride's eyes and in that moment, my heart felt like it had been stabbed a thousand times The thought that I would be leaving her alone in this world surfaced again.""
Once again, Alex paused for a moment after that paragraph because he felt Abi's grip on his, tighten. He glanced at her face but the girl's eyes were still closed, giving him no clues to what she was thinking.
He could see that she was acting a little strange, but knowing how innocent and pure this little lamb of his was, he thought that she might be feeling quite emotional and might even be feeling the pain of the characters. He knew that this little lamb of his was just that type of person.
""When I look back on that day, I don't think about our first dance. The first thing that comes to mind is the picture of my bride, dressed in her beautiful wedding dress with that beautiful smile on her face""
At that moment, Alex looked like something finally dawned on him and his gaze suddenly snapped to Abi's face. There was a strange intensity in his eyes as he uttered the rest of the paragraph without averting his gaze away from her. ""That day was the most wonderful moment of my life."
Finally, he read the very last sentence. ""Every time I look at her face now, I am reminded of that beautiful line I read from her favourite book saying ""
But before Alex could state the rest of the sentence, he paused because he suddenly felt Abi's hand on his cheek. Her eyes were already open and she was smiling as she caressed his cheek, her eyes glimmering with the tears that were threatening to fall.
""I now believe, by the way, that miracles can happen,*"" she continued the rest of the line as a tear fell from her eyes.
