977 My Beautiful Monster Part 78
How could his own flesh and blood do this to him? They may not be the closest family, but at the very least they all treated each other with respect. He was content with that, and didn’t need anything more from them. He never caused them problems and acted the part of the dutiful son. How could they do this to him? They know about the soul bound between Norah and him, they even praised him saying it was so rare to have such a powerful bond. No more importantly, they all know what Norah means to him and yet they fed her to the wolf that is his brother.
“Your mother told me, when she first invited me. ‘I’m sorry dear child. But, please do this. Lennon can never truly have you since your Alexanders official wife. Your marriage has been recognized, there is nothing he can do. However, he wont stop. He wants you. If-if you just entertain him for a while, perhaps he will get bored- Alexander won’t know. This won’t leave the manor, then she handed me to Lennon personally-‘” Norah trembled more as she said those words. It was already enough to be betrayed by his own brother, but his entire family? His entire flesh and blood? It’s not the first time his brother and him have fallen for the same women. There have been other occasions before. However Norah was different from all those other women. He wasn’t serious about the others and gave them to Lennon without a fight.
Lennon must have thought that he would do the same with Norah. That selfish brat, how much longer will he behave this way? When he first heard that Lennon was displeased with Norah getting back with him. Lex simply thought he was acting like a child. He didn’t think too deeply about it. “Lex? Your quiet, it feels uncomfortable.”
Lex turned to her. His selfless and beautiful wife. He never deserved her. She should never have forgiven him. Even if his family persisted, there was another candidate for Norah’s hand that could have protected her from his family. He has doomed her forever. Whatever obsession Lennon has with her, it won’t go away. Lennon has already had her in his bed but it’s not enough.
Lex didn’t answer and picked her up. He takes out one of the books from the shelves and the shelf moves. Norah tilted her head and she wrapped her arms around him understanding. “Is it okay?”
“I must have you now Norah. I want you to remember. I need to erase everything he has done to you. But, we shall take this slowly.”
Norah’s cheeks flushed red. “Y-you haven’t exactly been gentle with me since err, we discover our mutual unusual interests.”
Lex smirked. “Indeed, it has made our relationship quite exciting.” He trails off. His gaze softened. “But, I do have times where I wish to hold you gently like I did before.”
“Oh, you should have said so.”
“I thought you were enjoying our playtime too much and I didn’t want to ruin your fun.”
Norah hits his chest lightly with puffed cheeks. “Don’t make things up! Your the one who started all this.”
Lex laughed. “There’s your spirit. I guess, we will be having fun after all.” He places her on the bed.
Norah sighed deeply. “I was just waiting for the bruises to heal up, and then I would have attacked you myself.”
Before he could make a teasing remark, Norah sits up and removes her clothes herself. All he could do was stare at her. No matter how many times he sees her like this, it never gets old. She is so beautiful. Even with the bruises decorating her perfect skin, she looked like a true goddess.
Norah’s gaze meet his and her gaze softens. “Come.”
Lex is all over her in seconds and Norah wraps her arms around his neck and mumbles. “Make me forget everything.”
Just thinking about his brother made him sick. After that day, it took all his willpower to act normal around his parents and brother. He had to make up an excuse that Norah had caught the sickness that had been going around, and that’s why she was refusing invitations. It didn’t take him long to find more evidence against his brothers wrong doings. His brother has always been overconfident. Lennon never thought of erasing his tracks because he assumed he would never be caught.
In the end Lennon was judged by the entire god and goddess court. His punishment? Death by thousands of arrows each from every god, goddess and minor spiritual beings. The last one was to damage his brother’s remaining pride.
Even the lower beings could hurt him and he wouldn’t be able to do anything. But his favourite part wasn’t when his arrows hurt that bastard. It was Norah. When Norah got her turn, she didn’t hesitate to inflict as much pain as possible. It was her arrows that crumbled his brother’s chances at reincarnation.
It was the worst possible punishment for a spiritual being. But everybody agreed that it was the best way to set an example. As for his parents, they were stripped of their status. But due to Norah’s leniency they got to keep the manor, and simply remained on house arrest. ‘Lennon never reincarnated. But his soul, what happened to it? It should have shattered into thousands of pieces due to the damage of the arrows. However, this is the eighth life time already.’ There is a chance, if the pieces found each other, for his soul to be reformed.
Lucifer shakes his head. If something like that happened, he would be the first to know. His thoughts break off feeling the warmth of a female body pressed against his. Lucifer exhaled deeply. Of course there will be someone who disobeys those orders. Ever since Sumire destroyed the harem, the other females in the manor have stayed out of his way. Everyone saw the destruction and the state of the bodies of her victims. He made sure that everyone saw the bodies being carried out. But, there are still some who fling themselves at him. Lucifer turns and frowns seeing Lacy. Its this one?
