Chapter 978 My Beautiful Monster Part 79
“What are you doing?” Lucifer said coldly. It was silly to ask, he already knew. But, he was giving her a chance before she completely humiliated herself. A smart person would have recognized his tone and question as a warning. But, he forgets how this girl has no brains. “My lord, I-I thought you could use some company.” Lacy stammered. “I did hear your instructions. But, you just fought. I thought you would require a source.”
Indeed, had this been before he had Sumire. He would have accepted this offer. However, it’s different now. Feeding from another woman after what has happened between Sumire and him is wrong.
“I have a wife.” Lucifer reminded Lacy.
To his surprise Lacy’s cheeks coloured. “I-I know you do, and she is quite pretty. I can see why you would choose her. But,” Lacy pressed her breasts against his torso. “-you need an official mistress don’t you?”
His gaze dimmed. “Who told you that?”
“I overheard your men talking about it. Since you dismissed your other wives, at the very least you need a mistress.”
“And you want that role?” Lucifer scoffed.
How brazen, he thought this girl didn’t have any ambition. That’s the only reason he didn’t kill her, alongside those other servants. He thought she would be easy to manipulate and she has more than proven to be useful there. However, if she oversteps things. He can easily end her life like he did all the others.
Indeed, he dismissed all his other ‘wives.’ He gave them plenty of money to compensate. While most of them accepted the situation, there were a few who caused issues. He quickly dealt with those before Sumire found out. There is no need to stain her hands unless it is absolutely necessary. The situation with the harem, he was dealing with it. But if he spoke about it with her first, perhaps he could have dispelled her unease much sooner. Then she wouldn’t have had to do anything. Although the memory of her covered in blood turns him on. He felt his lower body harden and Lacey seemed surprised but boldly rested her face on his chest.
“My lord? Can I-”
Lucifer frowned. She must be misunderstanding his reaction to her seduction. She is close enough for him to tear her neck into pieces. Although she still has her uses, he could always find another pawn. Lucifer proceeded to end her-
Suddenly, there was a loud bang.
Lucifer immediately pulled Lacey behind him and looked to see what it was.
There were screams, commotion and his people began running in different directions. It was chaotic, since the building they had been staying in had exploded. Lucifer quickly put on his cloak and other clothes. Right as he finished, the smoke cleared and several tell men wearing white suits stepped out. Lucifer could only see five, but with this blood lust in the air. There is no doubt there are more people hidden elsewhere. Unlike his own men that hide their faces with masks, these people did not bother hiding their faces. An elderly bald man with a large nose stepped forward, there was a nasty smile on his face. The one beside him was a younger man with an orange mohawk. The third one was a man with dark hair wearing large dark shades. The fourth one had such vibrant pink coloured hair and wore an idiotic grin on his face that resembled the one Jacks wore. Lucifer exhales deeply when he sees the device attached to their arms, he immediately recognizes it. ‘After our last meeting, I already suspected that Aki was up to no good. But this confirms it. He has been so badly corrupted by the darkness, that he has turned to experimenting on his people and turned them into mindless people.’
A while ago Toh reported about the unusual changes in the holy knights. The reason the current management received their position is because members have been going missing. So, this must be where the missing members are going. They look like themselves but Lucifer could feel the dark energy coming from them. Lacy who was in his arms, raised her hand towards her neck but Lucifer shakes his head. “My lord? Do you not need to feed?”
Fresh blood would certainly make this battle faster. He can already feel the effects of Sumire’s blood wearing off. However, there is still a bit left. He may have to use the last of it to deal with Aki and reserve just enough to return back. If he can’t hold out, he may have to ask Toh to bring Sumire somewhere nearby. But that last part is a last resort.
Lucifer pushes Lacy back. “Do not get in my way.”
She ought to be thankful that the explosion happened when it did. If this continued, he would have ended her on the spot himself. The man with the orange mohawk grinned as he looked over at Lacey with a lecherous grin on his face. “That’s not Ibuki is it?”
“Of course not you fool, Ibuki is a brunette.”
“If so, then can I have her? I could use a woman right now.”
“After the fight.”
It takes Lucifer a moment to realize the girl was still naked and sighs deeply. He could just leave her to be devoured but she still has her uses, and he needs her to spy on Elisa. Lucifer extended his hand out and covered the girl’s body with his shadows.
“Ooh, what’s this? He is defending her? Maybe she is a favourite.”
“Like that is possible. The leader says Miss Ibuki is the only one the dark Lord wants.”
“Yeah but wasn’t he married to five other women before this? If you ask me, the whole thing about him desiring Ibuki is one charade.”
‘Miss Ibuki.’ Hearing the way some of the men addressed Sumire. Lucifer sighed. So they really are members of the Holy knights. Right now they seem normal, but there is no doubt once they start fighting. The darkness will take over them. How on earth did they get this way? No, how did Aki manage this?
