He held his neck like he was struggling for breathe.
I watched him confused at what was going on really.
He stopped panting heavily and ran out with his car keys
* What’s wrong with him? *
I asked nobody in particular.
I turned and my eyes met with Lucian’s sitting at the corner he usually sits.
He was looking so dressed that one would mistake him for a famous celebrity. I walked to him standing akimbo
* What are you doing here? And dressed like that * I questioned.
He smiled and sat up properly bringing the his right leg down from the left. * Sit, I want to do something with you *
He said and pulled my hand to fall beside him on the sofa at this section of the restaurant.
I shifted a bit from him and sat properly
* What is it? *
He brought something from his pocket and it was a smartphone,
it looked completely brand new.
* Where did you get that? *
I bought it *
He replied and tried to take a picture with me.
* Wait, where did you get that amount of money? *
I questioned cause the phone he was holding was the latest edition brand.
I did some little work today so I got the money to buy this, let’s just forget that and take this *
He explained and raised the phone to take a selfie.
I smiled lightly and he took the picture.
I got up ready to leave
* I’m hungry *
He said but I didn’t turn back to answer him.
I went into the kitchen and told Jane to serve him some snacks.
I tied my apron and started chopping some vegetables for a new recipe I wanted to try.
* He’s handsome *
Jane sneaked up on me, whispering into my ear.
* You can finally accept this one from all your numerous admirers * She said again
* I’m working Jane you better get back to work or your done for * I said and she left in a hurry.
I was happy I wasn’t serving today but in the kitchen.
Atleast today I’ll get home earlier hopefully.
It was past 8pm already and I was about leaving for home.
I looked around and I couldn’t find Lucian anywhere.
He didn’t tell me he was leaving, where could he have done to this late?.
I halted a taxi home and trekked the remaining street.
I climbed the stairs to my apartment and opened the door.
I went in and met him sitting on the couch, I closed the door and went in. * You didn’t tell me you were leaving *
I’m sorry, I was tired and I didn’t see you anymore * He replied and I pulled my shoes
I work as a chef, I only help in serving once in a while *
Too bad, I will not see you more often *
He replied and smiled. I looked at him and sat on the couch opposite him. * Don’t you find this strange? *
I asked and chuckled weirdly at how I’m staying with a total stranger in my apartment alone.
* You mean us living together? *
He cracked and looked at his intwined hand
I know you must be feeling uncomfortable considering being a single lady but don’t worry I mean no harm *
And who said I’m single? *
I questioned trying to get along
* I’m sorry I didn’t think you’ll let me stay if you have a boyfriend *
I laughed out loud and he smiled.
Well I am. I haven’t really had time for a relationship. Since I left my sister in Texas to come here all I want is to have my own restaurant someday *
I replied and he nodded. We both stayed quiet
* Did you have dinner? *
I said after a while
* Not really *
* OK, I will change and come out to prepare something *
I told him and went into my room.
I showered quickly and changed into something free.
I went to the kitchen and met him on the counter having a glass of water.
* You found a job early enough *
I brought up a discussion bringing out the ingredients
* Just a little work, no biggie *
He replied and I remembered my sister Wendy
* My sister always said that ‘no biggie ‘ *
I smiled missing her a lot, I should call her * I guess you must miss Wendy a lot * He replied and I was shocked.
How did he know my sister’s name?
* How did you know her name? *
Her Demonic Lover
OH no! Not this man
He’s a demon
