“You’re sure this is the way to do this right?” I asked looking at the green skinned demon man standing next to me.
He laughed, “Well short of killing one of your innocents, this is as close as I can get you to the gates of Hell without pushing you off. It wouldn’t work then.”
I looked at him, I turned to Jacob, “ Alright Eligos, let’s do this.”
I would stalk the fires of Hell for my mate. I took the serpent from the Eligos. Swallowing hard I brought him up and around my neck. Looking at Jacob again who had closed his eyes but somehow knew I was looking at him, nodded.
I looked into the serpent’s eyes and said, “Take me where I don’t want to be.”
His eyes flashed a charming green and became mesmerizing. I danced with the serpent to the floors of Hell with Jacob and Eligos on my heals.
Eligos had owed Jacob for saving his ass from an Archangel. That’s how Jacob got his smokey wings. I had no idea why Jacob had saved Eligos. When I looked at the two of them though, there was a familiar feeling. It was as if the two of them should have been together, but couldn’t.
As my feet touched the scorched ground I was amazed at the way the landscape looked. Handing the serpent back to Eligos I watch a figure emerge in the distance.
“Hello Rebecca!” said a hauntingly familiar voice.
“Hello Foraii, it has been a long time.” I said turning to him.
He smiled with his charming smile. Looking me up and down. “ I love what you’ve done here Becks! Would you prefer me to call you by your angelic name? What would be better for you?”
Within a flash he was in front of me with his hands on my shoulders. His caress was soft and smoldering at the same time.
“I need Lucas.” I whispered to him as he brushed the dark brown hair away from my neck, kissing it softly.
He pulled my chin up to look at him, with a twinkle in his eye he replied, “I know Becks. That’s why I came personally. I have always been fond of you and your white wings. While I would love to see what your soft white skin looks like under that outfit, I have another taste in mind. Come with me love.”
Looking at Jacob, he walked away from me, leaving me with the feeling of relief. It wasn’t that Foraii wasn’t a good looking guy. Let’s be real here, he could look like anything anyone fancied. I could see through it though and I knew he wasn’t my Lucas. He knew it too.
“Let’s see what we can do to find your lover for you my dear.”
As I cross the line between worlds Foraii turned and looked at me. I smiled, I knew exactly what he was going to see. I guess he didn’t though.
Eligos was shocked as well, “Rebecca, your wings have turned smokey. Did you and Lucas seal your fate? You finally slid into home base? I didn’t think you had it in you!”
Jacob walked up by him and smacked him in the back of the head, “They’re bonded you horse’s ass. I applaud them. At least they followed through with it”
With that Jacob walked up to me and offered me his arm. I accepted proudly as we walked farther into the pits of Hell. It wasn’t as warm here as I thought it was going to be, but I guess that’s what happens when you marry a dark angel. We walked for what seemed like miles. I looked behind me to Eligos who had at this point started to look upset.
I whispered to Jacob, “So he’s the one huh?”
Jacob looked sideways at me and nodded, “Yes my dear, he’s the one . I just wish he would stop being a dick and do something about it.”
Those were the words that I needed to hear to shut me up.
Foraii turned towards me, “We’re almost there dear. Daddy is pissed at him, but I don’t think his punishment will be as intense as it was when we went and got him. Lucas was always one of his favorites.He was considered a prize after the falling.”
Two heavy scorched wooden doors appear from nowhere. Foraii walked up to them and press the palm of his hand on the door. The door turned a shade of lava red as we watched Foraii’s hand start to smoke.
I looked at Jacob who just shrugged.
I whispered to him, “Why don’t you walk with Eligos? Foraii and I can make it from here.”
He looked at me with amusement in his eyes as I released his arm and walked up to Foraii’s side. I turned to my best friend who had never looked so happy in his eternity as he did right now. Then it clicked why he was so eager to come with me. Not that he didn’t love hanging out with me. Let’s be real here if you had the chance to see the one that stole your heart you would do anything to be with them also.
Foraii put his hand out for me, I swallowed and took it as he lead me through the doors.
Looking into the room I saw the most beautiful man I have seen since Lucas. Then the realization who was sitting in the wooden chair at the table clicked. It was my Lucas, no wonder he was so good looking. I looked to the other side of the table.
There sat Lucifer himself. He hadn’t lost any of his charm either. I smiled at my very shocked Lucas.
Lucifer and Lucas stood as Foraii lead me to Lucas’ side.
“Hello my love, you left without saying goodbye.” I said to him.
At that time Lucifer’s silky voice floated across the table, “My God Laila, you are stunning as ever. I would say you are as beautiful as me, but you and I both know how I feel about that.”
“Hello Lucifer. Thank you for seeing us without question.” I said staring into Lucas’ confused eyes.
“Anything for Lucas’ mate.” he said winking at Lucas. “I apologize for the mess we left you with. There was a bit of confusion down here. We had thought that Lucas had been double dealing with the angels. We hadn’t realized that he had taken a mate.”
I nodded my acceptance, not that it would have mattered to him. The matter had already been closed.
Jacob and Foraii strolled into the room. Lucas took my hand and lead me to the chair that materialized for me next to him.
“Let’s figure out what’s going on now shall we Rebecca?” Lucifer said to me.
I nodded. There was no need to express my feeling.
