Lamar appears in front of me, and I sigh in relief.
The Devil wants to see what will happen to us if we die, Jude growls. Has to be what’s going on. All that shit about not knowing our situation was bullshit.I’m not really sure what we were thinking by trusting the Devil to begin with, Ezekiel mutters just loud enough for me to hear it.
I turn again, finding the Devil practically excited as he grins so broadly and continues to stare at them.Even if we manage to survive a land no one outside of hell’s belly residents or royals have ever survived, we have to remember Lucifer built this course. It’ll be full of illusions that could send us in circles. We’ll never get out of here if he doesn’t want us to, Gage states quietly.It reminds me of that palace and how I kept going in circles even when I passed through walls. I couldn’t get out until I focused on them and zapped myself to them.
I’m not sure what happens. Between them talking about the fact they’ll never get out of hell’s belly and the Devil laughing like he’s enjoying every minute of this, I snap.A haze comes over me, and I move away from the guys as they continue to talk to each other. Slipping by people and through people, I make my way toward Lucifer as the acidic power burns at my fingertips, demanding to be set free as the dull echo of my heartbeat pulses in my veins.
Lucifer’s eyes are still gazing toward the left, watching the guys as they talk about their impending doom. Every single ounce of fear and dread rolls through me, becoming a force that has to be released.
My hand flies out without another thought, and Lucifer’s eyes widen seconds before he’s launched across the room.He groans as he sits up, shoving my dress up on my hips. A pleased rumbles leaves him when he realizes that I skipped over the underwear, and his hands tighten on my ass.
Moaning against his lips, I break the kiss, leaving both of us panting as our eyes lock.Just like with Gage…I feel it. I know it. Only this time, I understand better what I feel.
I love you too, I whisper softly, my hand running up his cheek.In a moment that should be tender, it’s almost worrisome when his eyes get brighter, and a hint of menace creeps in, as a sinister smile crawls across his lips.
