Hellbound With You Chapter 124
It was already dark but the night was still young when Abi and Alex finally arrived back home.
Alex saw cars parked in front of the house as they were descending and his expression slightly turned serious.
Since the two already dined before coming back, Alex asked Abi to go straight to her room and rest while waiting for him. Abi immediately obeyed without question because apart from the fact that she felt a little exhausted, she couldn't wait to go and write the day's unforgettable experiences into her notebook.
She was blissfully happy. Happiness continued flowing in her veins, warming her soul in the same way the rays of an early summer sun delicately warmed the skin.
Once she reached her room, she grabbed her notebook out and started carving the memories into them through words. There was an unfading smile on her face as she stored away every single detail of the day's experiences into her notebook, going on to even say that that day was the happiest day of her life as of date.
She also looked at her wish-list and she smiled seeing that fifteen wishes were already fulfilled. She managed to tick off two more wishes that weren't on the original list of eleven wishes that she listed off to Alex the night before, because they were fulfilled by Alex unknowingly. That was how her wish list goal was still on track; because she had managed to ticked off fifteen of them on the fifteenth day since she came to live in his house.
Meanwhile, downstairs, Alex walked towards the men who were gathered in the dining hall, anxiously waiting for him.
Abi didn't see them because she didn't use the grand staircase but used the elevator instead.
Kai, Xavier and an elegant lady in her forties, and some other able-bodied men, who appeared to be her bodyguards, were sitting there silently.
Their faces were grave but the instant they saw Alex, their mouths hung with their lips slightly parted. Alexander seemed to be shining, as if he just came down from the realms of the angels. This demon, who was always shrouded with a thick and impenetrable darkness, suddenly looked like some fairy cast a spell on him which turned him into this stranger; a completely different soul.
And what was worse was that this Alexander was actually holding a stuffed toy!
Xavier almost puked blood seeing the thing in his hand while the lady's hand just flew over her mouth. Their grave faces were white as chalk. 'Who the hell is this man?! An imposter?!!'
"You came without telling me first," Alex's deep voice rang, slicing into the thick silence as he glanced at the lady, before he sat at the head of the table. But his voice didn't sound angry.
How could that be? They all knew that coming over to his house unannounced would cause this man to activate his demon mode. But all this demon actually did was that?! What happened? Why was he holding a stuffed toy?
"Speak," he added, casually resting his face on his palm. He lifted his other hand and stared at the ugly angry jellyfish.
And then, before anyone could even start talking, the man suddenly chuckled, as if he was being amused by his own private joke while staring at the jellyfish.
Everyone looked like lightning struck them and they were unable to comprehend what had just occurred.
But Alexander was acting like he was oblivious to their reactions. He shook his head, not tearing his eyes away from the jellyfish. Well, the many different scenes from the entire day he spent with his little lamb actually started flashing in his head and he himself couldn't believe it. He was in disbelief and he couldn't help but laugh at himself. He never once thought that he would do any of those things in his life. He really didn't think of doing the things that he did. He was just going with the flow, fulfilling the little lamb's wishes as he promised. But now that he thought about all the things he did, like he was watching himself inside a movie, he just couldn't believe it. He never thought he was capable of doing such things that it almost felt like some other person had taken over his body and mind that day. He was simply mystified. He couldn't believe that it was actually possible for someone like him to do those things.
"Hahaha," he laughed again, a deep throaty sound, as he threw his head back as if the comedy show that only he was watching, became even more incredibly amusing.
Everybody who was watching him that moment, had their mouths opening and shutting like they were goldfishes, with no sound coming out. They all thought that Alex had become possessed, except for Zeke, who had just arrived and was now leaning silently as he observed Alex's expression like he was reading them.
Finally, Alex snapped out of his own world and he looked at the lady again.
"What. You're not going to speak?" he asked and when the lady still couldn't respond due to the shock, Alex stood and nonchalantly stepped away to leave. He saw Zeke leaning there and he was about to walk past him when the lady finally spoke.
"Alexander, I have a very serious matter I need to discuss with you," she said and Alex paused. However, he simply waved his hand without turning back to look at her.
"Let's talk tomorrow." Alex seemed to be unbothered about this 'serious matter' and he continued to walk away again when
"Alex, it's about Abigail," Zeke interjected in a low voice as Alex walked past him before he walked away, leaving Alex rooted to the floor as he watched Zeke's back heading towards his room.
Alex's expression abruptly changed, as if he had just been awakened from his daydream his first ever daydream.
He turned and looked at everyone around the table and then, just like that, the spell broke and the usual dark and cold Alexander instantly returned.
