976 My Beautiful Monster Part 77
“Wait, your brother is seeing multiple people?”
Lex raised his eyebrow. “Why are you so surprised my heart? It’s not uncommon for gods and goddesses to have their fun little experiments. My brothers partners seemed to be willing to share, so I saw no reason to pry into his affairs.”
“Your saying this has been happening for a few months?” Norah suddenly asked.
“Yes. I do not know the details, but it may have been happening for longer.”
“But then why is he still harassing me..?”
Huh? Lucifer blinked surprised at her words and it was only then when he realized she was trembling. It wasn’t because she was cold either, the girl wore long sleeved winter clothing. She’s trembling because she is afraid. Afraid of his brother? Now that he thinks about it, she has been wearing clothes like this all the time lately. Moreover, she hasn’t allowed him to touch her since he reunited with his brother. Could it be-?
Lucifer yanked on her sweater, not expecting it Norah didn’t get a chance to cover herself up in time. On his wife’s body, there were purple coloured bruises. Not just bruises but hikes.
He felt his entire body tremble due to anger. “Did he do this to you?”
“Norah, tell me now did he touch you?”
Norah was holding back the tears in her eyes. “He did! Do you want me to admit that he has raped me multiple times? Do you really have to get me to say that?” She snapped.
Impossible. Norah is stronger than Lennon. Even if Lennon wanted to touch her it shouldn’t be possible.
It was almost like Norah understood what he was thinking, since she said bitterly. “The bracelet, the one he sent over as a peacekeeping before we met him again in your family manor. You told me to wear it every time we come over as a sign of goodwill. That bracelet, temporarily disables my magic and zaps me of my strength.”
Lucifer felt the blood drain from his face hearing those words. Of course he knew what bracelet she was referring too. Lennon sent it over as a wedding gift. He didn’t see anything odd about it and was relieved that his brother had given up on chasing Norah. He thought the bracelet was a sign that his brother was giving him his blessings. Considering how he was behaving before then, he should have been suspicious. How many times did he leave Norah alone in the mansion while he was called away? He feels sick.
She could have fought back but because he told her to keep that stupid thing on.
Norah suddenly buried her face in his neck. “Lex, don’t blame yourself.” She said softly. “I’m not angry at you.”
“You should be. That stupid thing, give it to me. I’ll destroy it.”
He said he would protect her and make sure she never gets hurt again. But look what he put her through. Norah slipped out of his lap and walked over to the cabinets. He didn’t know she kept the bracelet in here, instead of the bedroom.
Norah takes out a small transparent box, even from here he could see the signs of dark magic emitting. “Every time I remove it, it gets like this. In order for the miasma not to spread in the manor, I keep it contained.” Norah explained.
How did he not see this before? Upon closer inspection, he identified the item. This is one of the artefacts they have been searching for. The witches with corrupted magic, all ran away taking everything with them. He and his people have been hunting down their artefacts knowing the harm they could posses. To think there was one right in front of him.
‘I want to rip him to shreds myself and destroy this thing now. But I need to keep it for evidence.’
Moreover, Lex’s gaze fell on Norah. Now he understands why she hasn’t been letting him touch her. She must feel disgusted and violated. Lex tugged on the girls hand drawing her closer. “Show me.”
Norah looked at him horrified and she shakes her head. “I cant-”
“Norah, my love, my heart. You have to show me. Do not be afraid, I am here. I’m sorry I have to make you do this. But I must know, I must see.”
‘I need to see with my own eyes so I can inflict the same pain.’
Norah hesitated but extends her hands out towards his head. Lex closed his eyes and the images flooded into his head. The first time Lennon forced himself on her, when he and his father had been summoned. He remembers that day clearly because Norah insisted that she would go with him. She was oddly persistent but he didn’t think much of it. He saw how after he left, Norah headed straight to their room and intended to lock it. But Lennon caught her. He invited himself inside and when she tried to run out. He used his power to command her to stop. Lennon closed the door himself and circled Norah, and told her to strip. Even with his brothers commands, Norah battle through it and reached for her own ability. But it was useless. He watched how he pinned her to the cold ground, and tore her clothes with a knife. How Lennon made her bleed, and scream. How the next day during breakfast, Lennon deliberately dropped his cutlery and buried himself in Norah’s thighs the rest of breakfast and nobody did anything. The next few occasions disgusted him more because his parents knew, and so did the rest of the servants. They knew what Lennon was doing to Norah, but they still continued to invite him and Norah over. There were even a few occasions where his parents invited Norah over without him. “Enough!” Lex boomed.
Norah flinched and removed her hand. “I-I told you, there was no need to see.”
Lex shakes his head and pulls Norah into his arms. “My heart, I will fix this. You don’t have to worry anymore. I’ll get a restraining order, you do not need to answer to my mother or fathers summons anymore.”
“Lex, I don’t want to drive a wedge between you and your family.”
“How can you still be so considerate? Norah you were violated over and over. The servants aside, what were my parents thinking?”
