Eternal Melody - Chapter 1120
Chapter 1120 I will be your villain
‘The sin of killing your soul bond partner, and hurting her own flesh and blood.’ The punishment is a lot worse if a member of the spiritual realm, if a God or Goddess broke this rule. Even if she and Lex relinquished their titles when they went to the human realms, it didn’t change who they were. No matter how many times they reincarnated, their powers would remain.
“I am relieved that you had kids again. I know how much you wanted them. Even if I feel envious that they were Lennon’s, I am still happy you had them.”
Yes, this was the reaction she expected from him. After running away and leaving that note. She initially planned to contact him again. However Lennon stopped her, he never said why it was a bad idea. So, she simply assumed it was because he was insecure that Alex would take her away. How petty, of course it wasn’t that.
Lennon understood even before she did that she had a change of heart. ‘I was so fickle, but he didn’t judge me. Even if we became sinners together, he was willing to do that for me. I really have been around so many guys who are willing to do so much.’
What has she done for them in return? Has she actually repaid any of them?
“Layla is Syliva as you have guessed. Right now she has changed her form into that of a six year old child, so she can speak without drawing suspicion.”
Ah- Sumire felt her eyes turn watery again, even though she suspected it, actually hearing it? ‘I really do want to see her, but even before Lucifer disappeared he wouldn’t let me meet her.’
“She told me when I discovered there was another curse on me. ‘I was the one who gave you the second one. Now father, tell me why I would do that, when I love you and mother so much that I followed you two here?'” Lucifer shakes his head. “I tried to remember, I did everything I could.”
Is that why he went missing for six months, was he searching for an answer? Lucifer extends her hands out and she flinched causing him to retreat his hand.
“How badly I must have hurt you, for you to react like that.”
‘I don’t hate you. I would have easily been able to say those words in the past, but it is difficult to do so now.’
It’s difficult saying it, but she can at least show him she is okay with him being around her. Sumire takes a deep breath before she hugs him tightly. Lucifer freezes, shocked.
“It hurts. It hurts.” Sumire mumbled. “It hurts but you, I just can’t say those words to you.”
Even though deep down, especially after regaining those memories, she knows it’s true. Lucifer curses and then pins her against the wall, as his lips went on her neck again. Unlike earlier, he wasn’t being gentle. It was a vicious feeding, she shut her eyes tightly as she felt he parted her legs and pressed his body against hers.
Sumire gasped. “Lex, Lex.”
All she could do was say his name, her entire body felt hot. She weakly ran her fingers through his hair, even that action stopped when she felt her strength being drained. How much blood is he drinking? He has never taken such large amounts from her before.
Even when Aki-san injured him and he came back half dead, he never drank this much.
He needs to stop. She can feel his arousal growing, if he continues-
Right as she thought that, Lucifer pulled back and she raised her hand to hit him.
Lucifer laughed bitterly, traces of her blood still on his lips. “So you can get angry.”
Sumire immediately understood what happened. “That was cruel of you.”
Why would he test her like that?
Lucifer leaned forward, his lips inches away from hers. “I told you before. I was never the villain in your story, but if I had to be? If I had to be to keep you safe? If that’s what fate has in store for us? Then I will do it.”
Sumire sobbed. “You don’t have to be the villain.”
Lucifer shakes his head. “From what you told me, from the fourth life I was already your villain.” He traces the bite marks he just made sensually and she shudders. “Do not shed tears for me anymore, when I can hurt you so easily.”
He is such a fool. Lucifer’s lips gently brushed against hers, and she was too tired, too exhausted to tell him to stop. As he kissed her, there was one thought that crossed her mind. The thought of her beloved, of Yuhi-san. ‘It really is too late for us Lex, even if it wasn’t Yuhi-san. I could never be with you again without thinking of the children you murdered.’
Nao was livid when she came down from the mountain limping. He was lecturing her why she didn’t call for help. She could have, but she knew a battle with Lucifer would only lead to risking Lucifer’s beast coming out. To think he did that to her when he was himself. Was she wrong? Was he always capable of hurting her?
‘I told Nao to drop me off here, but maybe I should have called in advance.’ She was standing right in front of Toh’s house. She can barely move, maybe she ought to have asked Nao to stay for a bit. Toh might not even be home.
She took a deep breath before she clicked on the door bell. She saw the intercom camera flash, and suddenly she heard rushed footsteps. The doors opened revealing Toh.
“Uh hi, I’m sorry for dropping by I just-”
Seeing Akane behind him, she freezes. Even from here she could see Akane-chan’s messed up hair.
“I—I’m sorry, I’ll go.” Sumire bolted out as quickly as she could.
Her entire body felt weak and she felt like she would pass out any moment. But right now? She knew she had to get away.
Stupid, how stupid. Of course Toh is with Akane-chan, he even admitted to her that he wouldn’t stop seeing her. But, this is her first time actually seeing them together. It hurts more than it should do.
