???? Lora ????
After what had happened yesterday, I still felt guilty.
So, I made up my mind to talk to Diana and apologize to Lucas before the day ends.
Meeting with Diana, we had this friendly chat together, we got to know each other better and I discovered that she was Lucas sister from his father’s side.
She made me know a lot of things I don’t know, even more about Lucas that I haven’t noticed.
I don’t know how but I think she already knows I’m a witch. From the way she talked, I guess somehow she just found out or someone either Elena or Lucas might have told her.
I’m only guessing this until she finally asked me if I was a witch.
What can I say?
I wasn’t in the mood of faking a lie…
“Yes.” I plainly said. “Lucas told you?” I asked and she shook.
She smiled. “I’m a Demon Lora and I’ve lived with witches for years now. So, it isn’t difficult for me to detect one. ”
” So, I heard you and Lucas are into each other. Am I right? ”
I chuckled softly. ” It’s been months now, two months. ”
” Wow! She exclaimed happily, ” Really?”
“Yes.” I replied.
She seems very happy hearing about Lucas and I but deep in me, I keep hating myself for yesterday.
“Lora, I’m very happy for you. Like, I’m so so happy. Geez, for the first time in Lucas life he could fall in love. I swear, I’m still surprised. Lucas has never fallen in love since he was born. ”
I was surprised.
Lucas never had a lover for a first time?
Which means,,, I’m his first?
Even though I was so much happier, I hide it within myself trying to express it out with a soft smile.
“You’re lucky.” She held my hand. ” Just promise me that nothing will ever come between the two of you.”
Silence took over for awhile.
Did I ever mentioned a river before? Like, those in stories where princesses spends most of her time at?
That is the same place Diana and I were staying.
And our eyes stared at the river afar.
“Can I ask you a question?” I asked and she looked at me.
I lost the mind asking so I had to tell her not to bother replying. It might not actually be a crazy question though but, it wasn’t really necessary asking.
And she didn’t forced me…
We were like this together for hours before we went our separate ways.
Lucas has such a wonderful sisters. Elena, now it’s Diana…
I picked the courage to meet with Lucas. I went to his room only to find out that he wasn’t there.
I don’t want the day to pass before I talk with him. I really want to show him how sorry I am for my actions.
And if he isn’t in his room, where could he be?
I walked along to his secret place hopefully I didn’t forget it’s direction.
I took a thousand of breath again and again. I wasn’t scared, was I?
Diana earlier told me about the part whenever he was angry. He is slow to anger but un-withstandable when he gets annoyed.
I don’t wanna see that part of him because I won’t even withstand a second with him.
I walked to his side staring out into nowhere.
“I knew you’d be here.” I said. ” What are you thinking about?”
” So many things are in my mind I don’t know which one to think about. ”
” Then don’t think about any. ” I said and he look at me.
I looked away, we said nothing to each other again for what took like minutes.
I wanted to tell him how sorry I am but I lost the words. My lips were steaved to say a thing.
“Aren’t you tired of hating yourself?” He asked.
Honestly, I’m not. I was ready to hate myself a million times and still hate myself the more.
“I’m sorry.” I finally found the words.
“You don’t have to. You’ll only make it look like we quarreled, and we didn’t. ”
Just like that?
He just ended it up like that?
I felt the burden in me leave instantly but I know I still have to work things out with myself.
“I thought making Diana’s entrance was the best, I’m sorry I should have told you earlier. ” He apologized instead.
” You don’t have to. It’s my fault I threw up. I should have asked and even if I didn’t asked then, I should have waited. The most important thing is we’re good. ” I smiled.
Now things are good with the two of us, I felt like nothing ever happened between us.
“Why didn’t you react when you found out I was a witch?”
Yes, he didn’t.
“Nyk said if the royals finds out I am a witch, that I’ll be killed. Why didn’t you react? ”
He sighed heavily, like he was never expecting something like this. He was never ready to answer such question.
But I need to know why he broke the rules because of me.
“Those are my father’s rules,” he said, ” I don’t follow them.”
Did he just say?
Isn’t he Lucifer’s vice commander? His right hand? And above all his son?
Why isn’t he following his father’s rules?
“My mother has restored peace between the demons and the witches, it isn’t necessary.”
I believe him…
“Have you ever loved someone before? ”
He shooked his head.
He hesitated to reply. ” I never believe I deserve to love.”
“Is it because of whom you are? You think no one will ever love you for what you are? ”
Why would he be thinking like that? He is everything every girl will ever love. Why?
He made no comment.
“You’ll never know, it’s not everyone who will think like that. I don’t care what you are or who the monster in you is. You’re no monster to me, Lucas. I just love you the way you are. ”

She was standing not far from him, her hands wrapped around her chest and enjoying the wind blowing in her face. She turned only to to see him staring at her and looking right into her eyes.
It almost felt like he was looking right into her soul. Lora tried to give him a small smile which he didn’t return.
She walked towards him, her steps slow. She felt naked under his gaze, he was undressing her with his eyes.
She looked into his eyes full of emotions, full of unspoken love and a shiver trailed down her body.
He brushed the strand of her hair, placing behind her ears. ” I’m so lucky. I’m so damn lucky I got to meet you, that I got to be with you. I’m very good at hiding my feelings and not letting emotions control me but the moment I laid my eyes on you, I couldn’t get hold of my own emotions and feelings. I never thought I’d settle down with a woman. For years,I’ve been searching for you and each time I think, I wonde how much I’d feel if the hunters had taken you away, how lonely I will feel for the rest of my life without having you beside me for even a second. And I am ready to kill anyone who lays a finger on you. You’re the best thing that has ever happened to me. ” Lora sniffed, tears falling out of her eyes. ” I love you Lora. ”
Lora was still processing his words in her mind. He just poured out his heart for her.
He wrapped his right arm around her waist before she could even say anything,
“I love you too. ” She sniffled,leaning against his touch, ” you’re the best thing that has ever happened to me too, I can’t imagine my life without you. Please, don’t you ever give up on me.” She nuzzled her nose on his neck.
” I promise to be by your side, Lora. I give you my word.” He smiled and she looked up to see how serious he meant the words.
He stared in her eyes and pulled her closer to him by grabbing her hips. Lora gasped as she placed her hand on the back of his neck. He picked a strand of her hair and twirled it around his finger making her shiver.
He placed the strand on the back of her ear and glanced at her lips as she did the same. Lora’s heart was hammering against her chest as she realized what was going to happen. She wanted him to kiss her, she wanted to feel his lips against hers.
Lucas pulled her closer and in a second, his lips met hers causing butterflies to erupt in her stomach. She started kissing him back and their lips moved together in sync. He ran his hands from her waist down to her butt and Lora let out a moan causing him to smile between the kiss.
She ran her hand through his hair, loving the feel of his soft hair between her fingers. The kiss was filled with need and passion, making them lose control. They pulled back for catching a breath.
This was the moment when both stood staring in each other’s eyes and it was the same moment when Lora realized how much she liked the Demon.
