Hellbound With You Chapter 121 – Boom!
“Tch! I can’t get it because this machine’s too rigged! How the hell can anyone reel anything in if those things are stuffed damned tight?!” he started to get angry. He already spent a lot of coins!
“What the hell’s with this claw? The grip’s too loose!”
“This is clearly designed to let go or give a jiggle after it grasps something!”
His complaints continued. Because the little fluffy lamb was at the far end, stuffed tightly next to the ugly alien with red boots and ducklings with pirate hats, Alex kept grabbing the wrong ones. If he grabbed the wrong ones, he would let it go and didn’t even want to drop it so they could get the stuff.
The little lamb was leaning against the glass so it was impossible for the claw track to allow the claw to get close enough to nab it. Abi knew it but seeing how he was so determined to get it, she didn’t have the heart to tell him to give it up. Moreover, she was enjoying watching his extremely rare frustrated expressions.
She thought that his expression right now was heartwarmingly soothing and he was like a cute demon king. At this moment, Alex was like an ordinary man and she kind of loved that he could actually act like this. Even though his feature and aura we’re still damn far from ordinary, his frustration was very normal and really cute in Abi’s eyes.
“Are you sure this isn’t rigged? The claw grip is too damn weak! Where are the staff?!” he looked around, looking like a boss ready to fire everyone but when he saw that they were the only ones inside, Alex returned his attention to the machine.
“Tch! Move back, little fruit. I’ll smash it,” he then said and Abi’s eyes widened.
“Huh? No, wait!”
“Don’t worry, I’ll pay for it.”
“Don’t! That’s not nice. It’s okay, let’s go to the other one. Actually, that little lamb’s position is impossible to get. You could just get me that little pirate duck.” Abi clung on his arm to stop him from smashing the poor little machine.
But Alex refused to give up. He refused to accept that this damned little machine could frustrate him like this. He would never accept that a damn claw machine could beat him.
He cracked his neck and continued his oh-so-frustrating quest.
He started grabbing all the toys one by one and dropped them all. Abi then realized that he was planning to empty the machine until the little lamb was pulled to a favorable position and she was speechless. This was basically the same as buying the entire machine!
He bumped another animal towards the little lamb until it moved. He also tried dragging it until it was close enough to the chute.
Once it was in the absolute best position, he finally grabbed it and dropped it into the box.
The other toys were already piled high on the floor when Alex picked the damned frustrating stuffed little lamb toy. He couldn’t believe that even a damn toy like this could actually give him a hard time. He had the urge to squeeze it to death but he didn’t. He couldn’t! How could he squeeze his little lamb to death?
At that moment, Abi clapped happily for him. Even though his method was absolutely extreme and simply, utterly unbelievable, he still worked hard for it. She couldn’t believe that he made what she thought was impossible possible using his crazy man logic. No one else would even think of doing that other than him in this world.
With that, Alex basked in the glory of holding his bounty high above his head as he smirked back at Abi. The feeling was unexpectedly fulfilling. Alex even wondered if he had ever felt like this in all the insane success and great battles he won effortlessly in his lifetime. He thought that he never felt this kind of glory or whatever this was, before.
“Here you go,” he said, proudly smiling at her and Abi’s eyes twinkled like stars.
She carefully grabbed the little lamb and hugged it. “It really is so cute.”
As they left the arcade, Abi was all smiles while Alex was wondering just what the hell he did.
Because they were starting to run out of time, the two immediately moved to the next request. This was Abi’s second to the last request for today.
The sun was starting to set as they rode a large Ferris Wheel.
Abi had seen a lot of movies and shows on how romantic this was. Getting inside the cabin with your boyfriend and kissing once the cabin reached the highest spot was such a dreamy scene for her. Even though it was cliché, she still wanted to experience it.
And it seemed, it wasn’t bad at all. Having Alex right beside her as they ascended higher was more than just a nice feeling.
The view of the city and the colorful sky were breathtaking.
“It’s beautiful!” Abi exclaimed as she looked through the window. This wasn’t her first time but this Ferris Wheel was the largest she had ever rode on. Even the cabin they were in was romantically beautiful.
Because of its large size, the Ferris Wheel took a long time to reach the top but because Abi was busy appreciating everything her eyes were seeing, she didn’t notice the time.
She only realized that they were finally at the top most part when Alex pulled her and made her sit on his lap.
“It’s time for the kiss, Abigail,” he said and then, he kissed her as the swirling colors of the sunset disappeared from the sky.
His lips felt warmer than before, sweeter even. The feeling of kissing him as they were there, on top of the world was indescribable. Abi’s heart was pounding in a chaotic tempo but she didn’t want the kiss to stop. Before she knew it, her fingers ran through his hair, not letting him go.
When their lips parted, Alex was smiling. He brushed her pink cheeks and then her kissable lips as he smiled in pleasure. His little fruit had started to ripen, huh…
He was so pleased that it was taking all his self control not to push her down right then and there and kiss her hard and touch her the way he wanted.
He then moved and whispered in her ear.
“Now here’s your last request for today, Abigail.” He said and then…
BOOM! BOOM! BLAST!
The magical sight of fireworks blowing up above them painted the sky with different coloured patterns which were reflected in both Abi’s and Alex’s eyes.
Hellbound With You Chapter 122 – Daydream
It was already dark but the night was still young when Abi and Alex finally arrived back home.
Alex saw cars parked in front of the house as they were descending and his expression slightly turned serious.
Since the two already dined before coming back, Alex asked Abi to go straight to her room and rest while waiting for him. Abi immediately obeyed without question because apart from the fact that she felt a little exhausted, she couldn’t wait to go and write the day’s unforgettable experiences into her notebook.
She was blissfully happy. Happiness continued flowing in her veins, warming her soul in the same way the rays of an early summer sun delicately warmed the skin.
Once she reached her room, she grabbed her notebook out and started carving the memories into them through words. There was an unfading smile on her face as she stored away every single detail of the day’s experiences into her notebook, going on to even say that that day was the happiest day of her life as of date.
She also looked at her wish-list and she smiled seeing that fifteen wishes were already fulfilled. She managed to tick off two more wishes that weren’t on the original list of eleven wishes that she listed off to Alex the night before, because they were fulfilled by Alex unknowingly. That was how her wish list goal was still on track; because she had managed to ticked off fifteen of them on the fifteenth day since she came to live in his house.
Meanwhile, downstairs, Alex walked towards the men who were gathered in the dining hall, anxiously waiting for him.
Abi didn’t see them because she didn’t use the grand staircase but used the elevator instead.
Kai, Xavier and an elegant lady in her forties, and some other able-bodied men, who appeared to be her bodyguards, were sitting there silently.
Their faces were grave but the instant they saw Alex, their mouths hung with their lips slightly parted. Alexander seemed to be shining, as if he just came down from the realms of the angels. This demon, who was always shrouded with a thick and impenetrable darkness, suddenly looked like some fairy cast a spell on him which turned him into this stranger; a completely different soul.
And what was worse was that… this Alexander was actually holding a stuffed toy!
Xavier almost puked blood seeing the thing in his hand while the lady’s hand just flew over her mouth. Their grave faces were white as chalk. ‘Who the hell is this man?! An imposter?!!’
“You came without telling me first,” Alex’s deep voice rang, slicing into the thick silence as he glanced at the lady, before he sat at the head of the table. But his voice didn’t sound angry.
How could that be? They all knew that coming over to his house unannounced would cause this man to activate his demon mode. But all this demon actually did was that?! What happened? Why was he holding a stuffed toy?
“Speak,” he added, casually resting his face on his palm. He lifted his other hand and stared at the ugly angry jellyfish.
And then, before anyone could even start talking, the man suddenly chuckled, as if he was being amused by his own private joke while staring at the jellyfish.
Everyone looked like lightning struck them and they were unable to comprehend what had just occurred.
But Alexander was acting like he was oblivious to their reactions. He shook his head, not tearing his eyes away from the jellyfish. Well, the many different scenes from the entire day he spent with his little lamb actually started flashing in his head and he himself couldn’t believe it.
He was in disbelief and he couldn’t help but laugh at himself. He never once thought that he would do any of those things in his life. He really didn’t think of doing the things that he did. He was just going with the flow, fulfilling the little lamb’s wishes as he promised. But now that he thought about all the things he did, like he was watching himself inside a movie, he just couldn’t believe it.
He never thought he was capable of doing such things that it almost felt like some other person had taken over his body and mind that day. He was simply mystified. He couldn’t believe that it was actually possible for someone like him to do those things.
“Hahaha,” he laughed again, a deep throaty sound, as he threw his head back as if the comedy show that only he was watching, became even more incredibly amusing.
Everybody who was watching him that moment, had their mouths opening and shutting like they were goldfishes, with no sound coming out. They all thought that Alex had become possessed, except for Zeke, who had just arrived and was now leaning silently as he observed Alex’s expression like he was reading them.
Finally, Alex snapped out of his own world and he looked at the lady again.
“What. You’re not going to speak?” he asked and when the lady still couldn’t respond due to the shock, Alex stood and nonchalantly stepped away to leave. He saw Zeke leaning there and he was about to walk past him when the lady finally spoke.
“Alexander, I have a very serious matter I need to discuss with you,” she said and Alex paused. However, he simply waved his hand without turning back to look at her.
“Let’s talk tomorrow.” Alex seemed to be unbothered about this ‘serious matter’ and he continued to walk away again when…
“Alex, it’s about Abigail,” Zeke interjected in a low voice as Alex walked past him before he walked away, leaving Alex rooted to the floor as he watched Zeke’s back heading towards his room.
Alex’s expression abruptly changed, as if he had just been awakened from his daydream – his first ever daydream.
He turned and looked at everyone around the table and then, just like that, the spell broke and the usual dark and cold Alexander instantly returned.
Hellbound With You Chapter 123 – Rough
[WARNING! THIS CHAPTER CONTAINS MATURE CONTENT NOT SUITABLE FOR YOUNG READERS.]
Steady footsteps were muffled by the soft, thick carpet later that night. Alex had just entered Abi’s room and as expected, the girl was already on her bed, sound asleep.
The man walked closer like a phantom and stood there staring at her. It seemed that she was too tired that she didn’t even bother to put on her pajamas as she still had her bathrobe wrapped loosely around her.
The room was brightly lit but the darkness shrouding Alex was making the entire room look dim. He was a completely different Alex than the Alex that Abi spent the entire day with. No, if Abi could see him right now, she would immediately have thought about that night in the garage where she first met him, when she first saw his ice cold eyes that were glimmering with impending danger that had chilled her more than the freezing temperature that night.
Alex’s eyes were dull yet intense, reflecting the wildness of a beast. His brutally gorgeous face was hard and emotionless.
His eyes zeroed to her hair, eyes, nose, lips, slender nape, collarbones and her chest. He studied them all like a wild beast patiently savoring the moment before devouring his prey.
He sat on the edge of the bed and his hand started gently stroking the girl’s hair and face, down to her neck.
He rubbed her lower lip with his thumb and in the next moment, his face hovered over hers and he covered those soft lips with his own.
The kiss was light and gentle at first and eventually turned ravenous. His hot tongue probed her lips open and surged inside her mouth pushing deeper and entwining their tongues together. She tasted as heavenly as always.
His lips then moved to her cheeks, her ears, and slipped down to her neck, which was when the girl under him finally creased her brows and opened her eyes.
“Alex?” she uttered and the man kissing her neck, paused. Feeling the trail of his lips on her face, Abi immediately realized the reason why she was dreaming of him kissing her.
When Alex lifted his face and stared into her eyes, Abi subconsciously swallowed. She felt chills run down her spine. Those eyes…
“D-did something happen? Are you okay?” were the words that left her lips.
“Nothing happened, Abigail…” he whispered as his gaze became even more intense and, as if he was suddenly lured in by a siren, he pounced on Abi. His lips were on her with a hunger that he never experienced before. He pushed his tongue inside her mouth,
causing Abi’s eyes to open wide. But as his velvety tongue wandered inside her, she eventually closed it again.
This was the first time he kissed her like this. It was hot and wild and Abi felt like she was losing her mind. She didn’t know that a kiss could be this intense and it just felt… so good that she couldn’t even describe it. Not long after, she found herself trying to kiss him back, mimicking what his skillful tongue was doing even though she could hardly keep up with him.
He kissed her long and hard – their tongues intertwined and danced with each other and the atmosphere became even more heated.
His kisses became ravenous, causing Abi to become breathless. She m.o.a.ned under his lips and Alex let her go, giving her a moment to breathe before hungrily devouring her lips again, deeply and a little roughly.
As their tongue intertwined, his hands slid down and wandered all over her body and his caress was surprisingly gentle, almost soothing, contrary to his rough kisses.
Then his lips traveled downwards, kissing her neck – that sensitive spot just below her ear – and her brain malfunctioned.
Abigail tried to feel everything that he was doing to her but everything just felt so good that she couldn’t help but just instinctively react to him, to his kisses, to his touch. She was losing herself to her raw instincts and desires.
He kissed her neck, licked and sucked on it and she m.o.a.ned with pleasure. Her hand went to his head and her fingers tangled through his hair.
Hearing her m.o.a.n, he moved his mouth from her nape down to her collarbone, towards her twin peaks. Her bathrobe was now lying loose around her. He paused for a moment, as if was having an internal battle within himself.
“Alex…” Abi called out his name and he looked at her face.
He lay on the bed next to her and started to kiss her lips again and this time, his hands determinedly moved down to his next targets, her twin peaks. He caressed these perfect little mountains with his hand, massaging them one after the other, making sure that he was paying each one the same amount of his attention.
Abi could not think anymore and just bit her lip to stop another m.o.a.n from escaping. Her hands gripped the sheets tightly as she arched her back. Her reactions were so uninhibited that he was starting to feel really uncomfortable down there.
Abi felt shocked. He had touch her there before but this was the first time he had ever touched her b.r.e.a.s.ts like this and the sensation she felt when he played with them was sensational. She couldn’t believe that she could feel such pleasure from that. His hands were gentle, caressing her body, teasing her until she could no longer take it. Just as she was about to beg him to stop, he moved his hands from her b.r.e.a.s.ts and trailed kisses down her neck and chest.
He paused again and looked down at her bra. She was wearing a bra with the hooks at the front, rather than at the back, and seeing them made the glimmers in his eyes flickered. The next moment, he moved his hand and skillfully unhooked her bra, revealing her milky white b.r.e.a.s.ts.
Hellbound With You Chapter 124 – Like a dream
Abi hissed as the cold air brushed over her n.a.k.e.d skin but that was soon replaced by the heat of his mouth on one and his warm hand on the other. Her eyes opened wide in shock but then her mind was filled with nothing but pleasure.
Alex sucked on her n.i.p.p.l.e, sucked and bit her gently, as his tongue licked and swirled and played with it. His hand mimicked what his tongue was doing and the different sensations she was feeling forced another m.o.a.n of pleasure from her lips.
After giving some attention to her perfect b.r.e.a.s.ts, he set his sights lower down. He slipped his hand from her b.r.e.a.s.t, over her abdomen and stopped when it met the edge of her underwear.
And then, without more warning, his hand snuck underneath her lacy underwear and touched her most private part. Abi jolted, her eyes flew wide open and her legs closed instantly, trapping his hand between her legs.
This was how she reacted that first night when he touched her there.
Alex lifted his face and he kissed her lips until Abi voluntarily loosened up.
When Alex’s fingers started moving and caressed her there, a m.o.a.n escaped her lips. The world seemed to have slowed down as she found herself experiencing an enticing feeling that was completely foreign to her.
“A-alex…” she uttered his name and her voice was like gasoline being poured over Alex’s furnace. His gaze never left her face as he caressed her, watching her submit to his touch. He could see her almost drowning in pleasure and her flushed and sweaty face was a sight to behold. She exuded such s.e.xiness and just watching her face almost made Alex go crazy.
“Alex… I feel weird…” she uttered again, opening her eyes and looking at him. Her gaze seemed to be begging him – for what exactly, she had no idea – and that made Alex move to kiss her eyes and then her lips.
The next moment, a long, slippery finger slowly penetrated her entrance. Abi’s eyes flew open.
She m.o.a.ned hard under Alex’s lips but the man didn’t let go. He instead continued kissing her deeply as if he was trying to distract her.
Soon, Alex slid his finger in and out and even though she was tight, she was so wet that it made it easy for his finger to slide inside her.
Abi was intoxicated by the sensations, as she closed her eyes. It wasn’t uncomfortable or painful. In fact, it felt good, really good. She had never felt these kinds of sensations before and while it was new and somewhat strange, it also made her feel like she was on cloud nine.
Just as she was riding on the waves of ecstasy, he brought it to another level when he wandered from her lips and placed his lips over her n.i.p.p.l.e and simultaneously inserted two fingers inside her.
She thought she had experienced true pleasure a few seconds ago but that was nothing compared to this feeling right now. Her mind was not on this planet anymore. It was in outer space!
He kissed her b.r.e.a.s.ts and his fingers slid in and out in a rhythm, causing this bubbling feeling to build inside her.
Alex… wait… Alex…” She m.o.a.ned and thrashed on the bed but he held her down with his body. He didn’t stop. He knew she was getting close from the sounds that were being torn from her mouth. He moved his fingers faster and faster until she begged him.
“Please… please… oh, please…” she cried but she didn’t even know what she was begging for.
Suddenly, she felt as if fireworks exploded inside her body.
The delicate sunlight pierced through the curtains when Abigail’s lashes opened like black butterfly wings.
She blinked multiple times before she rolled over on her bed. She buried her face on her pillow and after staying still for a few seconds, she finally rose. She looked through the window and smiled, seeing that it was another bright, sunny day.
However, her smile didn’t last long. It slowly faded and her bright happy face was replaced with shock.
Her hand flew towards her mouth as the images of the previous night flashed through her mind.
She remembered those deep and rough kisses and everything that Alex did and her face burned red. She buried her face in her palms, feeling utterly shy and embarrassed just as if she was watching an r-18 movie.
She remembered how she m.o.a.ned and thrashed before his eyes and she buried her face on the pillow again. What she experienced last night was just unbelievably overwhelming. To her, it was like a dream.
As she thought about that indescribable feeling, Abi was reminded of the words Alex told her yesterday at the beach, that he would make her fly, higher than the helicopter would reach. She blushed hard again, realizing that this might be what he was talking about.
When she left her room, she found herself meekly descending the stairs, thinking about how she would face Alex. But to her surprise, the butler told her that Alex had already left.
Abi couldn’t help but feel a little downhearted not to see him but she understood. Alex probably had a really important matter to deal with if he left that early.
Even though Alex wasn’t there, Abi still went and exercised alone. She thought about him as she jogged on the road and it was then that she realized that something felt a little strange. She couldn’t remember anything after she reached that peak. What happened after that?
She could only think that she might have instantly fallen asleep, but she remembered how awake her senses were at that moment. Even though she had felt like her body seemed to have turned into jelly, she had felt that her heart was pumping in overdrive and her mind had definitely been awoken after that.
Abi didn’t know why but even though the only logical explanation was that she had fallen asleep, the hunch that something else might have happened just wouldn’t leave her mind no matter how much she shook her head to stop thinking about it.
Hellbound With You Chapter 125 – Bittersweet
Abigail dropped the stuff toys that Alex had won from that claw machine at the orphanage. She had her hospital appointment that day so she had taken the day off.
The children were very happy as they received the small gifts that they were given and Abi was extremely happy as well as she looked at their bright, happy faces. She even took pictures of the smiling children because she was planning to show it to Alex once she returned to his house.
Thoughts of Alex filled her mind again and a blush crept up to her cheeks, but luckily, the children and teachers were too busy looking at all the gifts she had brought to notice.
However, Abi’s smile later faded as soon as she heard that Little Betty had been in the hospital since two nights ago.
Her face fell and the news broke her heart. Her mind was preoccupied with many thoughts about the little child as she headed to the hospital. At least one comfort was that It just so happened that her doctor was at the same hospital where Little Betty was admitted, so Abi made sure to visit her before her doctor’s appointment.
When she got there, she went straight to the little girl’s room. The girl was lying on the bed with an oxygen mask and tubes were hooked up all over her. But still, she smiled brightly the moment she saw Abi.
The little girl looked very weak and it pained Abi’s heart so much to see her like that. Her heavy heart was already filled with sadness but then a memory of her own mother, also lying on the hospital bed like that, surfaced in her mind and the pain cut even deeper.
“How are you?” Abi asked softly as she held the little girl’s hand.
“Feeling better,” she smiled. “I missed you, Abi.”
“I missed you, too, sweetie.” Abi started to feel quite emotional but she did her best to fight the lurking tears in her eyes. “Ah, I have bought some gifts for you.”
She tried to be cheerful as she brought out the toys that she bought from Country V for Little Betty. She also gave her the cute bear that Alex had won from the claw machine.

“They’re so cute. Thank you, Abi! Now I have a friend to stay here with me.” The girl was happy as she hugged the toy in her weak hands.
Unfortunately, their time together was cut off because it was time for the little girl to take her medication. She knew that Little Betty would soon fall asleep once the medicine took effect so she stayed for a while until the girl fell asleep.
Her heart was heavy as she left the ward until she arrived at her doctor’s room.
As expected, the doctor told her the same thing she did a few weeks ago. The only thing that changed from the doctor’s statement was her warnings. The doctor told her more fiercely to take extra care and be more careful because her condition was like a ticking time bomb.
Abi was calm when she came out of her doctor’s room but anyone who saw her at that moment could already tell that what she heard inside was bad news.
Her grip on the door knob as she closed it was tight. Then she leaned on the wall and stared at the ceiling as she took some heavy deep sighs. She felt like the people passing by the hallway were shadows and the sound she was hearing were sad… sad music.
But a smile still curved on her face. She thought she shouldn’t be like this. She told herself that there were others who were in much, much more difficult situations than she was in. Some even left this world unannounced and some left too soon, before they could even see what the world was like.
She knew that she was still fortunate compared to the others who couldn’t do anything anymore. She was lucky because she still had the time to fulfill her wishes. She was blessed because she had met someone who was willing to fulfill those for her.
Thinking about Alex, Abi’s smile turned bittersweet and she sighed again, trying to keep calm.
She remembered that she had planned to visit home after her appointment and spend the whole afternoon with her family so she took another deep breath and composed herself.
However, before she could take a step to leave, Abi froze in place.
Her eyes flew wide when she saw a man standing there, looking back at her. Ezekiel Qin! What was he doing here?!
Abi’s heart started pounding, as if she was some thief that had been busted in action. She couldn’t move her feet. She had heard a while ago from her doctor that this hospital had just been sold to the Qin Enterprise but she never once thought that Ezekiel Qin would be here! She knew that he was now the CEO of this hospital but… how could he patrol the hospital’s wards the very next day after he acquired the place?! Relax Abi, just act normally and he won’t suspect anything. It is pretty normal to be seen inside a hospital.
Abi’s panic somehow started to dissolve as she did her best to stay calm.
The man was accompanied by some other men in expensive suits, who looked like they might be directors of this hospital, and he looked very respectable as always, like the noble, powerful man that he was. He was saying something while the men with him were nodding but his eyes were still on her.
Abi breathed silently and finally moved. She acted very normally and slightly nodded at him like how people usually do when they pass by someone they know, but aren’t well acquainted with, on the street.
And then she started stepping away casually, however, she didn’t even take five steps when,
“Miss Chen,” Ezekiel Qin called her.
Hellbound With You Chapter 126 – Awkward silence
Abi jolted and stood frozen on the floor as his voice echoed in her mind. Her brain stuttered for a moment. Every part of her went on pause while her thoughts caught up.
She forced herself to think and moved her legs to turn. Once she did, she found that Ezekiel Qin was already standing right before her.
His stoic eyes were questioning her but no word left his lips. He simply glanced at the door where she came from. Did he see her step out of the room?! Abi prayed that he didn’t.
“H-hello, Mr. Qin.” Abi finally found her tongue and greeted him.
“What are you doing here?” he asked, his overbearing aura was intense that Abi felt a little uncomfortable. She felt like she was an elementary kid, talking to a strict and stoic looking principal.
“I am just running an errand,” she managed to answer normally.
However, the man just stared at her. He was silent, almost as if he was waiting for more explanation. Or more like an investigator waiting for her to confess.
Abi already saw how aloof this CEO was but now that she was alone with him, she found it extremely challenging just to stand there and speak with him. His unfriendly aura and his lack of words was making it difficult for Abi to comfortably speak with him. No wonder those directors surrounding him a while ago looked really tensed.
“Uhm… I still need to visit Little Betty in the ward so I’m–”
“Miss Chen, are you sick?” he suddenly cut her off. Abi felt her throat immediately run dry. She felt like her blood drained from her face but she desperately tried not give anything away.
“No. I just came to pick up some medicine for the kids at the orphanage and also to visit Little Betty. She was admitted into this hospital. Remember that child I brought with me to Alex’s house? It’s her. Do you want to come with me and visit her? She’s in the children’s ward.”
Somehow, Abi seemed to have managed to turn the odds in her favor. But the man unexpectedly agreed to come. She only asked him if he wanted to come with her because she didn’t think that Ezekiel Qin would actually agree and follow her to the ward. She initially thought that the man would decline since he was obviously here for work.
But then, Abi didn’t think too much about it. Maybe this man had grown a liking to Little Betty and he just wanted to see her?
As they walked in the hallway, everyone turned around to look at them. Ezekiel Qin was really famous, after all. His fame was on par with superstars in this country. The only difference with him was that nobody dared to approach him or mob him, like what fans do to their idols, when they saw them roaming around in public places like this.
Abi thought that it was maybe because of Ezekiel Qin’s intimidating aura but she was sure that his reputation of being the last man people wanted to mess with was the biggest factor as to why people didn’t even dare try to do anything funny in his presence.
Seeing the attention this heartthrob, and the so-called number one man every girl wanted to marry in this country, was getting, Abi couldn’t help but think what would happen if Alex was with them right now. If these people were to see Alex, what would they do?
The answer Abi came up with was, a disaster. She thought that she would believe him if Alex told her that he purposely hid from the world because he didn’t want the trouble his beauty would bring upon him. It seemed ridiculous but it was actually logical.
Finally, the duo reached the ward but Little Betty was still asleep so they simply stood there by the doorway and watched the little sleeping girl.
Ezekiel was silent.
“Will you be coming here often from now on?” Abi broke the awkward silence.
“Uhm, then… Can I ask you to visit her again? Little Betty is actually always asking me about you. She keeps telling me to say hello to you from her,” she told him before her gaze fell on the girl again.
“What happened to her?” he asked and Abi’s smile slowly faded as she explained Little Betty’s condition.
“She doesn’t have much left…” Abi’s voice became weak. “So can you visit her? I’m sure she’ll be happy to see you.”
“I will see.”
Silence reigned again after that for a long while. Abi finally realized that the man would never speak unless she spoke first.
“Uhm… I need to go back to the orphanage now, Mr. Qin. Little Betty has Mrs. Yan with her so I’ll be going back,” Abi told him but the man remained silent.
Abi couldn’t help but want to scratch her head because of their awkward situation.
“Well then, I’ll be off, Mr. Qin.” Abi slightly bowed and then turned to leave when…
“I’ll drive you there,” he said, causing Abi to frantically wave her hands.
“No, no. No need, Mr. Qin. I’m sure you’re extremely busy,” she politely declined, but the man’s brows creased in displeasure.
Abi secretly swallowed. “Uhm. I can’t possibly waste your precious time Mr. Qin. I know you’re here for a business matter so I’ll just take a cab,” she explained but the man suddenly walked away, passing her by.
“Let’s go,” he ordered as if he didn’t hear what she just said.
His actions made Abi speechless. Why on earth would this busy man offer her a ride?
In the end, Abi didn’t have a choice but to follow him.
From the moment they left the hospital, the car was shrouded with a thick, almost unbearable silence. Abi tried to think of a topic of conversation but she just couldn’t find any, until eventually, they arrived at the orphanage without uttering a single word.
That was probably the most tensed and most awkward car ride she had ever experienced. She felt a little suffocated by that silence that she couldn’t wait to step out of the car so that she could finally breathe again.
However, just as Abi held the door handle to leave, the man finally spoke.
“Miss Chen, what are your feelings towards Alex?”
Hellbound With You Chapter 127 – Far away
Abi’s hand on the door handle tightened around it. She looked at him and the man’s eyes looked extremely serious. Where did that come from? Why was he asking?
His question shocked Abi that she just stared at him and couldn’t speak. She never ever thought that she would be having this kind of conversation with this aloof, stoic man! Her brain started to function again and she was about to answer but then, her phone vibrated.
Abi looked at it and saw that it was her dad calling her.
She looked up at Ezekiel Qin with a small apology in her eyes before she picked up the phone and answered it.
“Hello? Dad? Are you already here?” Abi looked outside the car window and saw her dad’s car parked near the park. “Okay, I’m coming,” she said and when the call ended, she looked at Ezekiel Qin.
“You can go,” he told her, not looking at her anymore.
“Thank you for the ride, Mr. Qin.”
Once the door was closed, Ezekiel Qin turned and looked at the girl making her way towards another car.
“Sir, are we going back to the company?” the driver asked.
Ezekiel Qin didn’t answer. He just stared silently at Abigail for a while before he spoke. “No, let’s go back to the hospital.”
Abi heard the car leave as she got to her dad’s car. She turned around and watched it disappear before turning her attention back to her dad who was waiting for her. She hugged the old man and the two happily chatted as they drove out of the city.
That afternoon, Abi spent her time pleasantly with her family. She went to her room and stayed there for a while until it was finally time for her to go back.
Her family were all smiles as they said goodbye to her. They didn’t give her any more advice like the last time she was here to visit. It seemed like they finally accepted that their girl was already a grown up lady.
Abi rode a cab back to the city. She was thinking about the request she should ask today as she stared out the window. That was when she realised that she really missed Alex. It had only been a few hours but she felt like it was days since she last saw him.
Letting out a sigh, Abi went to get her phone from inside her bag, when all of the sudden, the cab squealed into a full stop. Abi bumped her head on the back of the driver’s seat as she heard a loud, deafening noise.
“Miss, are you okay?” the driver asked as he looked towards her.
Abi’s hand was on her head. She was glad that the seat wasn’t made of harder material or her head might be bleeding by now.
Seeing that she was alright, the driver climbed out of the cab.
She too, climbed out to survey the scene. The scene of the accident was a shocking one. She saw that a car had collided into a big truck and it was almost crumpled. She immediately shuddered, thinking that people inside it might have been dead, but fortunately,
there was only one passenger in the car and he looked like he only suffered minor injuries, which was incredibly impressive and unbelievable, looking at the state of the car!
While they waited for the police to clear the road, Abi found out that their car just narrowly missed the collision and that if the white car didn’t cut in, maybe the cab she was in would be the one that collided with that truck!
Thinking about it made her stomach feel uncomfortable and uneasy. She couldn’t help but remember Kelly’s warning about people trying to hurt her because she was with Alexander Qin.
Due to the collision, it was already past twilight when she arrived at Alex’s house. She was ten minutes late.
Her steps were hurried as she entered the door and she immediately ran towards the fireplace where Alex would always sit while waiting for her.
When she spotted him sitting there, Abi felt relieved. She smiled, happy that she was finally able to see him. She silently walked and even tiptoed towards him, to surprise him.
However, as she walked closer, something made Abi halt in her tracks. Alex was silent as always, doing nothing, but Abi could feel the coldness he was exuding. And for some reason, she felt like something had changed.
She felt as though he had become distant, like the moon so far away, impossible for her to reach.
“You’re late, Abigail,” his deep voice was cold. “You broke the rule again… for the second time…” he trailed off, not turning to look at her and Abi was temporarily incapacitated.
Alex was… scaring her.
“Come over, Abigail,” he ordered and Abi swallowed before she walked towards him and stood before him.
The moment she stared in his eyes, her heart slightly trembled. Her brain desperately scrambled to figure out what was going on. Why Alex was suddenly like this.
She just felt that this was not because of the rule she broke. She had done it before but it never elicited this kind of reaction. This had to be because of something else.
Abigail was tonguetied. She couldn’t speak as she looked at him. Why was Alex like this? Why did he suddenly become this cold? Did something happen?
As Abi was frantically asking herself so many questions, a thought entered her mind. She remembered Ezekiel Qin and the thought that the man might have found out about her secret and told Alex about it made her feel like something knocked every wisp of air from her lungs. She couldn’t breathe for a moment. But she persevered because she might be totally wrong!
“Abigail…” he called her name again and she felt goosebumps run down her spine. She never heard him spout her name with such coldness before.
Alexander kept her rooted in place by the binding force of his stare. “I hope you prepared yourself,” he continued.
Hellbound With You Chapter 128 – Fear
“A-alex… I… I’m sorry…” she stammered as she tried to apologise and explain. “I… I didn’t mean to be late. I… There was an –”
“Abigail… I’ve already told you. Rules are rules,” he cut through her, his voice merciless, without even a tiny trace of warmth. Abi felt like her heart was being squeezed tightly as she looked at his face. Her heart was thumping loudly in her ears, so loud that it was deafening. Was all this coldness simply the result of her breaking the rules? She couldn’t make herself believe it. She just knew there was something else that was causing him to become like this.
She felt like crying, not because of fear or because she was scared of the punishment, but because she didn’t like it when he became this scary. She didn’t like seeing Alex looking so cold, as if he was heartless and soulless. This wasn’t the Alex that she had come to know.
Despite the suffocating look emanating from his eyes, Abi opened her mouth again. “Okay, I’m not going to ask you to forgive me,” she uttered. Her voice was weak. Her lips trembled a little. “I will take my punishment so c-can you go back to normal now?” she asked. “Please Alex… I don’t like you being like this. Please? Please, don’t be angry anymore,” she pleaded but Alex’s face darkened even more, as if he didn’t like her reading him.
“I’m not angry, Abigail,” he said but the girl stubbornly shook her head.
“Then… why are you like this?”
“You know the reason why, Abigail.”
She shook her head again.
“No, I don’t believe you. This is not only because of the rules I broke. So what else have I done?” she argued. Her voice was filled with worry, panic and fear. “T-tell me, did something happen?” Wet liquid began to lurk in the corner of her eyes. She finally remembered that look in his eyes last night and she knew that whatever happened last night had something to do with his sudden change, too.
But Alex’s lips curved up into a quick cold smile and then, he abruptly stood up. He pinched Abi’s chin and stared into her eyes. His piercing icy gaze was sharp, so sharp she felt like they were cutting through her.
“Nothing happened, Abigail,” he said emotionlessly, repeating what he told her last night when she had asked him the same question.
Abi shook her head again.
“You’re… lying… Alex…” she whispered and she saw the man’s eyes dim into a pitch black darkness, as his jaws clenched slightly. “I feel that something happened last night. T-that’s why you’re like this…”
A short silence passed before a wicked and forced smile curved on Alex’s face. He slowly rubbed her cheek with his thumb as he spoke. “I’m like this because this is how I am, Abigail. This is the real me. I told you… I’m even colder than you could ever imagine,” he uttered and Abi didn’t know why,
but her heart throbbed in pain. She wanted to shake her head. She wanted to not believe his words, but she could tell from those eyes that he was telling the truth; that he was like this because this was who he really was.
“Abigail… you’re finally scared of me, huh?” he added, looking at her slightly trembling lips. And then, he smiled at her. But that smile was the most painful and devastating smile Abi had even seen in her life.
“That’s right… that’s how you should be acting towards me, Abigail… you should feel nothing towards me but fear…” he whispered before he abruptly let go, turned his back to her and walked out of the room.
Abi was left there, frozen. Her eyes and mouth were frozen wide open in an expression of stunned surprise. Every part of her went on pause. She felt like every wisp of air from her lungs had been knocked out again and she felt like she could hardly breathe. She didn’t even register that she was now all alone in what had become a very cold room, despite the warmth of the fire blazing next to her.
The moment Alex was out of the living room, his aura blazed with hellfire, as if the darkness inside his soul could not be contained any longer and it was all now leaking out without constraint. He was completely swallowed by his own cold, reeking darkness.
He stood by the door with his fists clenched into tight balls. He didn’t even notice Zeke leaning by the wall right beside him until the man spoke.
“I can’t see any reason why you need to scare her like that,” Zeke said. “At this rate, she will –”
Before Zeke could finish his words, Alex’s hand flew like lightning towards Zeke’s neck and Alex pressed him hard on the wall.
“Shut up, Zeke…” Alex hissed, gritting his teeth hard.
Zeke didn’t react and just stared back at Alex’s dangerous gaze.
The next moment, Alex let go of him and left, leaving Zeke leaning there watching him walk away.
Once Alex was gone, Zeke entered the living room as if nothing had happened. He saw Abigail, still standing by the fireplace like a frozen statue.
He quietly walked past her, heading towards his room, but then he paused, as if he had forgotten something, and walked back towards her. He stood in front of her but the girl didn’t even seem to notice his presence.
“Miss Chen,” Zeke finally called out and Abi was startled. Her gaze flew towards the man before her and her senses slowly returned to the present.
“M-mr. Qin,” was all she said. She bit her bottom lips as she looked down, hiding her devastated expression from him. “Mr. Qin, tell me… d-did Alex find out something about me? Is that why he is like that?” she asked, as her fingers gripped the end of her dress.
Suddenly, the man’s hand landed on her head.
Abi’s body stiffened and she lifted her face up to him, full of surprise.
“Don’t worry, this has nothing to do with your secret,” he whispered before retracting his hand.
Hellbound With You Chapter 129 – Moon
Abi felt like the world stood still. Her eyes were wide as saucers as she tried to hide her shocked expression. Even though she had been worrying about this, that Ezekiel Qin might have become suspicious after seeing her at the hospital, she still couldn’t believe that he found her out.
Her face became white as chalk and she started to tremble.
Seeing the girl’s reaction, Zeke’s eyes slightly widened. He didn’t expect her to react like this.
The man’s eyes moved as he checked if anyone else was within earshot of the two of them. When he confirmed that it was clear, he slightly bent down and whispered in her ear. “Rest assured that I will not tell anyone about it, not even Alex.”
Abi was again stunned. She opened her mouth but no words came out.
He’s like that because he’s angry about something else.”
“Miss Chen… just like the fact that you have a secret that you never want him to find out, you also know that he is hiding something as well, right? This is something that he never wants you to find out, no matter what happens.” He stared at her, his eyes calm like there was a drifting gray cloud in them.
“I’m not going to meddle in your affairs. I will keep yours and his secrets but… I just want to tell you this, Miss Chen, that no matter what he does to you, no matter how terrifying he becomes, if you want to stay with him… don’t ever fear him… or at least, make sure not to show him how scared you are.”
Abi just gaped at him as she listened to his words. She couldn’t say a word back.
It was then that someone entered the living room.
Zeke glanced at the person before he casually moved away. “Don’t worry about him. He’ll come back once he calms down,” he told her before he left.
Once the man was gone, Abi finally moved from her spot. She abruptly turned and was about to run out but she collided with Kai, the person who walked into the room from behind her.
“Careful,” the man said as he held her shoulders, steadying her.
When Abi saw that it was Kai, she immediately asked him where Alex was.
“I don’t know. He’s probably outside somewhere,” the man replied as he looked outside the window. Abi followed his line of sight and she finally realized that a thunderstorm was raging outside.
When Kai saw worry and panic flood into her eyes, he immediately tried to coax her.
“Don’t worry, Abigail, that guy will be fine. Even if a tornado will eat him, he will still survive,” he chuckled. Even though his words seemed like a joke, he wasn’t kidding at all.
Abi knew that Alex wasn’t a fragile creature like her but that didn’t make her feel any better. She walked past Kai and headed to the grand entrance door.
“Wait! Please don’t go out!” Kai stood against the door, blocking her. “It’s dangerous for you to go out there! The lightning might strike you. Don’t worry. Alex will come back soon. That guy’s just throwing a tantrum. It’s nothing serious. Hehe. And I didn’t mean he’s just outside the house. I meant that he went somewhere far from here. So just wait for him here, okay?”
Abi could see that the man was doing his best and she didn’t want to give him a hard time, but she couldn’t contain herself.
“It’s okay, Kai. I won’t step out into the rain. I will wait for him just outside the door. I promise, I won’t run away,” she pleaded and the man was speechless.
He was about to coax her again when Zeke’s voice rang from behind them.
“Stop blocking her, Kai. Let her do what she wants,” he said and Kai pressed his lips into a thin line.
He looked worried as he stared at her. “Promise me that you’ll just stay by the door,” he hesitantly said and when Abi nodded, he finally moved away from the door, letting her step out. He followed her outside but the girl politely asked him to leave her alone.
Once the door was closed, Abi leaned on it. She stared at the raging rain and the strong wind and a tear fell from her eyes.
She realized what she had done. That look in his eyes when he saw her tremble in fear, squeezed her heart. She remembered that Alex had always tried to scare her away but every time he tried, she always managed to coax his coldness and his terrifying aura away by hugging him.
Now that she thought about all those times, she realized that he always mellowed down when she stayed fearless. He even easily softened when she hugged him tightly like she never wanted to let go. So why didn’t she hug him that time? Why did she let him go? Why did she let her fear beat her?
Abi slid down to the ground and she sat on the floor, hugging her knees.
To her, Alex was like the moon. Distant, cold, and lonesome, but he was breathtakingly beautiful and he exuded a light that always warmed her heart. He was ever changing and the light he exuded changed all the time. Despite that, she managed to embrace all those sides of him no matter when he was shining brightly or when his light dimmed like the full moon turning to its waning crescent phase.
But this time, she failed. When he lost all his warmth and light, she started to tremble in fear, like how people only appreciated the moon when it exuded beauty and light and shunned and ignored it when what it showed was its mere dark side. She felt like she had done that to him tonight – when the moon turned dark, she feared him.
She shouldn’t have feared him when he no longer exuded any warmth. She should’ve embraced him during his darkest state and tried to shared some of her starlight with him, to give him a spark to help him shine again, instead of letting fear take over.
But she didn’t and she regretted it.
Hellbound With You Chapter 130 – Playing with a dragon
The rain continued raging like it was angry with the world. The lightning struck down like Thor’s hammer and thunder roared angrily in the night sky.
The cold wind pierced through her skin but she didn’t even mind it. Her heart was aching. She remembered Ezekiel’s words and her grip around her knees tightened as she slightly rocked back and forth.
She already knew that Alex had many secrets from the first time she saw him. She knew that he too had his very own battles. She knew everyone did. Everyone had their very own battles and struggles that they were hiding within themselves, ones that they didn’t want to share with anybody else.
But sometimes, when she looked at Alex, she felt her heart ache mysteriously, even though she had no idea what he was hiding. She just couldn’t help but wonder what kind of war he was going through. What kind of world did he live in to become like that? What made him the person that he was now?
As her thoughts continued wandering about, she didn’t realize how long she had stayed outside for until she finally felt the presence she was waiting and longing for.
She immediately lifted her face and what welcomed her was the sight of Alex walking towards the door. He was completely drenched. His clothes were dripping and his wet hair looked like he just ruffled it with his own fingers. He was like a gorgeous god of rain, as breathtaking as ever, but his face was hard and he looked shocked as he looked down at her.
“What the hell are you doing out here?” his voice thundered but Abi didn’t even flinch anymore. Her mind was now clear and she had come to terms with herself. She had finally decided that even if this man would never ever love her, she would give him her all. She would love all his different shades, no matter how dark they would get. She would love him with all the love anyone could ever give.
She would pour her heart and soul into him. There was no running from it anymore. This person, standing before her now wasn’t just her so-called boyfriend anymore. She had realized from the first time she missed him that Alex had become so special to her. Despite the very short time that they had spent together, he had become her favorite person; the one and only person she would want to spend the rest of her life with.
From now on, she wanted to give him all her love. She wanted to shower this cold, cold moon with all her love for the rest of her life because that was all she could do for him, and for herself, within the short time she had left. She had nothing to give him but her heart.
After staring at him for a while, Abi stood up, her eyes glimmering beneath her lashes as Alex spoke again.
“I’m asking you, Abi –”
Before Alex could finish his sentence, the girl suddenly jumped on him. Her hands wrapped around his waist and she hugged him tightly.
Alex was stunned. He never thought that she would pounce on him and hug him. He saw how scared she was before he left her. He was even expecting her to be hiding inside her room like a terrified puppy.
“Let go, Abigail, I’m drenched,” he said coldly, trying to peel her off.
But the girl desperately gripped him hard and refused to let go. And then, he felt her hot tears on his chest from where she buried her face on his chest.
It was then that he realized that her skin was so cold. He looked at her exposed shoulder and he saw her skin filled with goosebumps. He gritted his teeth as his jaws clenched.
“How long did you stay out here for?” He was angry. “Answer me!”
“Since you left,” she replied and Alex shut his eyes in anger before he laughed wickedly.
“Why? Why would you wait for me in the cold like this? Huh? Abigail?” he asked, almost looking like a beautiful villain. “After I made you tremble in fear, you came out in the cold and waited for me?”
He was shaking his head in disbelief.
In that moment, Abi finally let go of him. She slowly moved away and gazed into his blazing eyes.
And then, abruptly, she wrapped her arms around his neck and pulled him down before her lips slammed on his. Alex was stunned. It wasn’t just because she kissed him, it was because the girl was actually kissing him hard.
The man didn’t respond until Abi pulled away. She stared into his eyes again and then, she licked her own lips.
Alex’s brain stopped working as if she had somehow pulled the emergency shut down lever. He couldn’t believe that she was doing that in this situation, even though he had warned her clearly before. This girl… she was driving him insane!
As Alex’s lips parted in disbelief, the girl kissed him again, as if she just took advantage of his surprised self to gain access to his mouth. The man’s eyes widened.
This girl, his little unripe fruit, was kissing him hungrily the way he did to her last night. Her tongue sloppily wandered inside his mouth like a little wild beast playing with a dragon. She licked and poked his tongue with hers, as if she was teasing a sleeping dragon to wake up.

Her hands on his neck moved to his wet hair and a minute hadn’t even passed by before Alex lost it.
Her little soft, warm and unskilled tongue was just so heavenly that he couldn’t even resist for more than a minute. On top of it, he couldn’t forget how she licked her lips a moment ago, as if this little fruit was seducing him. Did she do that on purpose this time? If she did, then she definitely defeated him this time.
