Hellbound With You Chapter 141 – Option
After some time, the men were sitting inside the car as they waited.
Alex and Zeke were sitting in the backseat, with Zeke busy on his tablet, while Alex was lazily resting his face on his palm as he stared out the window.
Xavier was on the driver’s seat, silently trying to communicate with Kai, who was sitting in the passenger’s seat.
“Ahem…” Xavier broke the silence. “That really was such a nice experience, right?” he grinned at Kai.
“It wasn’t that bad. I finally realized that the behind the scenes of those plays aren’t a joke. The audience don’t have any idea that behind those curtains, everything is chaotic and filled with pressure,”
replied Kai seriously and an invisible sweat drops fell from Xavier’s forehead. Hey! Why are you turning the conversation into something deep? I was just trying to make the two stone pillars behind us talk!
“Haha, yeah, you’re right. But honestly, it was something I never ever imagined to ever experience.” Xavier was glancing at the two at the back but his efforts didn’t work. He felt like he had become a radio, just spouting out background music that no one really listened to.
Losing his patience, Xavier finally turned around and looked at the two behind him. “So? How was the experience for you two? Did you enjoy being props men?” he asked and Zeke’s finger, which was swiping his tablet, halted. Alex also glanced at him for a while.
“Hm, indeed, it was a very interesting experience,” was all Zeke replied and then he casually continued what he was doing.
‘That’s all you have to say?! Geez… did you really understand what you just did? Huh? Ezekiel Reign?! You are a tycoon and a… geez! What a boring guy!’ Xavier ranted in his head before his attention moved to Alexander, the last creature on earth that he and everyone who knew him, would ever imagine doing those kinds of tasks.
“How about you, Alex? I bet, that was officially the most unforgettable experience in your life,” Xavier grinned but that wasn’t actually an exaggeration.
However, Alex didn’t even seem to hear him. He seemed to be in his own thoughts, as if he was thinking about something so serious that it required his full attention.
As Xavier was about to repeat his question to Alex, the stone pillar suddenly spoke.
“Xavier… have you ever dined with your girlfriend’s family?” Alex suddenly said. Xavier was immediately choked at the bomb that Alex detonated out of nowhere, while Zeke and Kai’s head snapped towards Alex.
Xavier: “Cough, cough, cough!”
Zeke and Kai: “!!!!!”
Trying to recover from the shock, Xavier cleared his throat and looked at Alex again, who seemed unbothered with all their reactions.
“W-what do you mean? I mean, where did that came from? Could it be that you’re planning to –”
“What I’m looking for is an answer, Xavier, not another question.” Alex said firmly as he glared at Xavier and the man could only sigh.
“Well, my ex had invited me before to a dinner at their house but I never granted her request.”
“Why you didn’t go?”
“Er…” The hell Alex, why are you asking this thing all of the sudden?! “Well, I just didn’t want to go, I guess… haha…”
“Why didn’t you want to?” Alex’s eyes were looking intently at him. Darn! He now regretted pestering this dark dragon! Now, he felt like his life was in danger if he didn’t answer!
“Because… I think, the reason is because I was not ready to meet her family.”
“What do you mean you weren’t ready?”
“I mean…” God! I wanna run away. T^T!! Leave me alone, Alex. I promise, I won’t pester your peaceful moment again!
“Well, I mean… it’s because I wasn’t really that serious in our relationship.”
Alex’s brows creased.
“Alex, did Abi invite you to meet her parents?”
“No, her grandmother invited me for dinner.”
OMG! You already met her parents?!!!
“So? Are you going?” Zeke was the one who asked.
Alex looked outside again, silent.
“If you don’t want to, I could go in your place and apologize on your behalf,” Zeke added and Xavier choked again while Kai’s lips parted in disbelief.
Alex’s dark aura immediately blazed as his deadly gaze dissected Zeke.
“Zeke… are you really trying to rile me up?”
“I’m merely giving you an option to opt out of it, Alex,” he calmly replied, unfazed.
“Ha!” Alex briefly laughed sarcastically before his gaze turned even sharper as he looked at Zeke.
But before he could say anything more, his phone vibrated.
Alex brought it out and when he saw that it was Abigail who was calling him, he opened the door, stepped out and slammed it close before he answered it.
“Alex, where are you?” the girl asked.
“Oh, wait for me for a little bit longer, okay? I’ll be there in five minutes.”
Upon the call ending, Alex leaned on the side of the car and his gaze fell towards the night sky.
Meanwhile, inside the car, the three men were silent.
Zeke casually returned his attention on the data that he was checking on his tablet, while Kai was looking at him through the rearview mirror.
“Zeke…” Kai then spoke after a long while. “Why are you doing this? Could it be that you like Abigail?” he frankly asked, staring intently at the man’s reflection on the mirror.
Zeke’s lips slightly lifted and he calmly stared back at Kai.
“You think I like her?” he questioned and Kai sighed. He knew it wasn’t going to be easy to get anything from this man.
“I don’t know… I just don’t get why you’re doing all this. I just hope you’re not plotting something, Zeke.”
Zeke’s lips slightly curved up into a quick smile again, before he rested his face on his knuckles and looked at Alex, who was making his way to his own car, with an unfathomable expression on his face
Hellbound With You Chapter 142 – Nice and good
Abi had already changed her clothes when she left the hall. Abi and Kelly kissed each other goodbye before Abi walked over Alex’s car.
She sat in the passenger’s seat and buckled her seatbelt before she looked at Alex.
“Thank you for waiting, Alex.” She smiled at him. She was still wearing her fairy make-up and her beautiful face was still glistening.
As always, Alex didn’t respond. He just started the car and quietly drove away.
“Uhm… Alex, if you don’t want to go, it’s okay.” Abi hesitantly said to him after a long spell of silence. “I will explain to grandma that you are busy.”
Suddenly, Alex pulled the car on the side of the road. His gaze was sharp as he turned to her.
“Come here, Abigail,” he ordered and Abi swallowed before she moved as per his command. He stretched out his hand and held her waist, making her straddle him.
Abi’s knees were on the seat, with him between her legs.
She looked at his glorious face and she felt his intense gaze burning her face.
“Do you want me to go or not?” he asked, surprising Abi. His voice was deep and he didn’t seem to be annoyed. He seemed very serious this time and she noticed that he had been like that since the play started hours ago.
“Of course I would really love it if you came along!” she quickly told him. He didn’t know this but this was one of the items on her wishlist that she had removed because she never thought that Alex would agree to it. She never really planned on introducing Alex to her family because she thought that the man would never want to do that.
After all, their relationship was a deal and not something that started from them liking each other. Not only that, she was also afraid that he would find out her secret. Fortunately, Abi had time to speak with her dad before she left the hall a while ago and she begged him to tell her grandparents not to mention anything to do with her illness during dinner.
“Then stop telling me that it’s okay for me not to go,” he uttered as his thumb caressed her lower lip.
Abi just blinked. She thought that Alex was acting a little strange today.
“What are you thinking?” he asked, pulling Abi’s thought back to reality.
“I… I was thinking of something… about you,” she told him the truth and the man’s lips curved up.
“Oh, really? Mind telling me?”
Abi hesitated for a moment. “I was thinking that you seem a little different today…”
“How so?” he narrowed his eyes, intrigued.
“Like… you’re being so nice… I mean,” she subconsciously lifted her hand and touched his face gently. “You’ve been such a good boy today, Alex,” she uttered and it was Alex’s turn to become still. What? What was she saying? Him? Nice? Good boy?
A throaty chuckle left Alex’s mouth. “Good boy… are you sure about that? Huh? Abigail?”
The girl nodded like she was more than certain about it.
“You helped me without complaint, you even volunteered to become a tree and then you spoke with dad nicely… and now, you’re coming to our house for dinner!” Abi listed all the things out and it was then that Alex realized that he did indeed do all those things that she said. Pictures of the things that happened flashed in his head and his eyes slowly narrowed.
“Alex?” Abi called out his name and the man immediately cleared his throat as he looked at her. “What were you thinking?”
Alex’s lips curved up with her question. “I was thinking about what I should demand from you for being a good boy today…” he answered, averting his gaze as he cleared his throat again.
Abi’s eyes just widened as if she just heard something unbelievable.
“Since you said I was a good boy today, you should reward me, Abigail. Otherwise I might not be a good boy anymore.”
This was in fact the very first he had been called a good boy. He never once thought that someone would ever call him nice and good and he found it simply unbelievable. Unfortunately, he wasn’t buying any of it, even if it was his little lamb who was saying it, because he knew more than anyone else that he was the complete opposite of what she was saying and nothing would ever change that.
He didn’t think that what he did today was that amazing that she would actually call him good and nice but he thought that this little lamb was the only one who would ever think this way about him. But then, he wondered if this girl, if this little lamb of his, would show him even a little smile if she knew who he really was.
“R-reward? What kind of reward would you want from me?” she asked him and another smile appeared on Alex’s face.
“Would you give me any reward that I want?”
“As long as it’s not related to money and the impossible, I will do my best to get it and give it to you.”
There was determination in her eyes as she told him those words, causing Alex’s smile to turn even s.e.xier. His hand crawled from her face to the back of her neck, causing tingles and shivers on Abi’s skin. His gaze became scorching and before she knew it, she was swallowed by his deep gaze again.
He pulled her closer to him until her face hovered above his. Their noses touched each other as they looked into each other’s eyes, closer than ever. “Abigail… once you hear what I want you to do, you will never call me ‘nice’ and ‘good’… ever again…”
For a moment, as he whispered those words, Abi saw something in his eyes that broke her heart into pieces. Those eyes of his that had always been encapsulated by thick darkness and coldness, those beautiful yet deadly eyes that she thought would forever be unfathomable, suddenly opened up its rustic door… and for the first time ever, it became transparent, like the clear surface of a lake… but beneath it, she saw nothing but dark, dead emotions and… frozen pain.
She felt like she was staring at a bizarre and disturbing ancient dark themed painting and she felt her heart bleed.
Her hands slowly moved. They made their way around his head and then, the next moment…
Her lips gently landed on his forehead.
Hellbound With You Chapter 143 – Peach
Alex immediately froze under her. Nobody ever kissed him this way before and he didn’t expect that just a kiss on his forehead would shut him down like this. He couldn’t comprehend what he was feeling at the moment. All he knew was that this certain kiss she just gave him was worth a thousand kisses on the lips, the one kiss that he would never forget from all the piled up, intimate and l.u.s.tful kisses he had acquired before her.
Before he met her, kisses were not meant for anything else but l.u.s.t and pleasure, but after he met her, it changed. The kisses that they shared were never for l.u.s.t and pleasure but from desire and passion, but it changed once again into this something indescribable one.
This kiss was like a soft and warm blanket being wrapped around his frozen cold body, melting him effortlessly. He felt that this kiss was meant far, far more than just desire. At that moment, he felt like she didn’t kiss his body, she had kissed his soul, his cold and pitch black soul.
Abi felt him stiffen like a rock under her.
She had felt this pain countless times before. Whenever he sat by the fireplace alone, Abi had always felt this pain in her heart as she looked at him. She thought that it was all because of the thought that she would be leaving him one day, but now she realized it wasn’t because of that.
This Alex in her embrace was just the tip of an iceberg. She always had this feeling that he was hiding things from her, things that she probably couldn’t even imagine, but she only thought that what was hiding inside him was mere danger and darkness. She didn’t see the dead emotion that he had killed inside him. She was too focused on her own wishes that she failed to see the turmoil this person was going through.
She had seen it before that time at the beach, where he looked like a lost soul with nowhere else to go, like he belonged nowhere, yet she chose to believe in his tough, stone cold and indestructible exterior.
Tonight, she realized that this person was the one who needed hugs and embraces more than anyone else. Had she realized this sooner, she would have embraced him more, every single time she had the chance.
The two stayed like that, in silence, for an indefinite amount of time until a ringtone buzzed.
Abi let go of him and pulled away as she stretched out her hand and took her bag. She sat on Alex’s lap and was a little startled when she realized that the one calling was her grandma.
“G-grandma? Yes, yes grandma, we’re almost there…” she bit her lip as she stared at Alex. They had actually completely forgotten about the dinner.
“Yes, we’re coming.”
Once the call ended, Abi returned to her seat as Alex immediately accelerated onto the road again.
They arrived at Abi’s house in a flash.
Abi didn’t hesitate to hold Alex’s hand as she smiled at him.
They both approached the doorway with Abi leading him when suddenly the man paused, stopping Abi from reaching out the doorknob.
She looked back at him in curiosity.
“Alex?” she called out as she faced him.
The man slightly loosened his tie. “What if… your family gets scared of me?” he suddenly asked, seeming unsure of himself for the first time since she had met him.
Abi: “. . .”
“You know how my mood changes unpredictably. I can’t control my aura even if I wanted to. If they ended up being intimidated or –”
Without any hesitation, Abi wrapped her arms around his torso and hugged him before she looked up.
“Don’t worry, Alex, I’ll be right there beside you,” she said and Alex fell speechless. She then pulled away and fixed his tie like a good wife before she held his hand again. “Let’s go.”
Once they entered the house, a small sofa welcomed them. The floor was made of wood. It wasn’t big but it wasn’t that cramped either. It was a typical average home that was filled with nothing but that ‘home’ vibe, a real one at that.
Alex’s eyes wandered around and he saw no expensive materials. What he saw were many family photos hanging on the walls and on top of the cabinets, things that would never be found in any of his luxurious houses.
Abi let go of his hand as she took off her boots. She grabbed a small pair of pink bunny slippers and put them on and then took a bigger pair of white fluffy slippers and put it in front of Alex’s feet.
“Uhm… this is the only extra pair of slippers we have here that is big enough for you,” she told him as Alex stared down at the slippers. After three seconds, the man took off his own shoes and slipped into it, making Abi smile widely.
“I think they’re all waiting in the kitchen now,” she said as she led him to the kitchen.
“Dad, grandma, grandpa!” Abi was beaming widely as she walked over to where they were sitting and hugged them, one by one.
“Abi… didn’t your boyfriend come?” Andrew’s brows knotted in disappointment.
“Eh? He’s he –” Abi couldn’t continue her word. It was because the man who she thought was following behind her wasn’t there.
Hastily, Abi walked towards the door to check on him.
When she saw him by the sofa, Abi sighed in great relief. The man was there, facing the cabinet and looking at the picture frames like an old man looking for his childhood pictures.
“Alex,” she called out and held his arm. But before she could pull him, the man took a picture frame and showed it to her.
“This is you?” he asked, holding her picture when she was a chubby one-year-old.
“Oh… yeah, that’s me when I was 1 year old,” she replied and the man moved the picture right next to her face, his eyes darting back and forth between her and the baby.
“Indeed, a fruit. You look like a peach,” he commented so seriously that Abi didn’t know what to say until she heard her grandma’s voice calling her.
She snatched the picture from Alex’s hand before she finally pulled him towards the kitchen.
Hellbound With You Chapter 144 – Ever green
Abi led Alex towards the table for five. Her dad and grandparents were all looking at them, although, their eyes were mainly on the man next to her.
“Oh my, you’re really here,” Abi’s grandma exclaimed as she slowly stood up and held the man’s hand.
Alex didn’t really know how to react. It was like he had stepped into a whole other world, one that he knew nothing about. Why was this old woman acting all warm like this to a stranger like him?
“Okay, take your seats now, both of you,” she told them before she also took her seat again.
Abi sat on her grandfather’s right and made Alex sit next to her. Her grandfather was the one sitting at the head of the table so Abi and her grandma seat across each other while Alex sat across her dad.
The food splayed out on the table were all typical homemade dishes that ordinary people enjoyed like a feast. It wasn’t extravagant but they looked and smelled so appetising that it could make anyone drool. However, Alex’s face remained expressionless as he looked at it.
“Here, taste this, young man,” Abi’s old grandma picked up some dishes and put them on Alex’s plate, while the man just quietly watched his plate fill up until what looked like a mountain had magically sprouted on it.
He blinked and looked at Abi while the girl just bit her lips and smiled at him.
“My wife, don’t scare the young man like that,” Abi’s grandpa tried to stop his wife when suddenly…
“I’m not scared…” Alex suddenly said, with a straight and serious look.
Dad: “. . .”
Grandpa: “. . .”
Abi: “. . .”
The old grandma chuckled softly as she spoke. “See? The young man doesn’t mind it,” she said before she put more food on his plate.
Once she was done, she finally settled down and asked everyone to eat.
Alex glanced at Abi again, almost like a big child asking for his mother’s permission, silently asking if the food on his plate was edible or not.
Abi grinned at him. She knew that this was a whole new experience to him. In his world back in his house, everything this guy did, from the way he sat to the way he chewed his food, were all done with the utmost grace, as if he was born to act like a king in every way. Knowing this, Abi thought that she must lend him a hand.
And thus, Abi picked a broccoli with her fork from his plate and brought it near his mouth.
Abi opened her lips, gesturing him to open his mouth. Alex stared at the ever green broccoli and then to her. He seemed confused about something. But then, he still opened his mouth and ate it.
However, the moment he started chewing, he began to frown and his mouth stopped. Eh? What happened? Did he not like broccolis?
“Y-you don’t like broccoli?” Abi whispered as the man continued frowning hard. His hand slowly moved towards his lips before he continued chewing the food as his frown intensified.
Abi leaned in on him. “You don’t have to eat it if you don’t like it, Alex. Do you want to go to the bathroom?” she whispered, a little worried. But a moment later, the man finally swallowed the broccoli and the deep lines in his face slowly disappeared.
“I’m fine,” was all he said and Abi pressed her lips together tightly, as if to stop a giggle coming out of it. Somehow, that frown on his face was just… priceless. She couldn’t believe that she would see him frown like this. Did this man have any idea how cute he looked right now? The oh-so stoic man was actually frowning over a vegetable!
A giggle escaped softly from her lips when Alex returned his gaze on his plate. He finally moved his hands to pick the food but for some reason, he paused again. His gaze locked onto the leafy vegetables on his plate and he was looking at them like they were his enemies.
Abi meekly glanced at her father and then to her grandfather. The two were busy eating, although, they were obviously watching over Alex, as if they too were waiting on what he would do next.
When Abi’s gaze fell on her grandmother, the woman winked at her as she too was looking amused.
Since her stay in Alex’s house, Abi had seen how little Alex seemed to eat. He wasn’t really fond of food and every time Abi asked him why he was not eating more, the man would always tell her to just eat as he stuffed all the food on her. Abi didn’t worry about his eating habit because whenever she saw his fine and perfect physique, it would always render her speechless.
Now she realized that Alex wasn’t just like this because of the green leafy vegetables on his plate, he looked like he was currently doing some intricate math equations in his head on how the hell he would finish the little mountain before him.
Abi couldn’t help but silently giggle once again. Who would’ve thought that a plate filled with food would actually trouble the great Alexander Qin like this?
“Alex… do you want us to share a plate?” Abi asked him, obviously trying to lend him a hand.
Alex snapped towards her and the invisible formulas flying around his head disappeared. It looked like he had found the solution right beside him.
Without a word, Alex moved his plate between them and adjusted his chair closer to her. Her family served mostly vegetables for her since she got sick so she got used to eating every kind of vegetable out there. She picked up the vegetables, leaving the meat for Alex.
The couple ate that way, almost forgetting the existence of the other three people with them. The old grandma was all smiles and genuinely happy watching them while the old men, especially Andrew, looked pretty surprised. His daughter and her boyfriend were acting like newlyweds…
Hellbound With You Chapter 145 – Whenever
“Ahem…” Andrew caught the couple’s attention and Abi’s father began to speak.
“So, Alexander… how did you meet my daughter?” he asked, looking expectant and curious. The old couple looked at them with such curiosity as well. How did Abi find this very fine young man? Was it love at first sight for both of them? It was only been a few days since she went and lived in the city.
There were many questions in their eyes, but Andrew’s question jolted Abi that she didn’t notice how hard she had gripped Alex’s shirt under the table. How could she tell them the story of their first meeting?
Abi nervously swallowed as she looked at Alex. The man was still chewing his food as he, too, stared back at Abi.
Once he swallowed the food in his mouth, he looked at Abi’s dad as he opened his mouth to speak, making Abi’s heartbeat accelerate.
“I met her by accident in a parking lot. I thought…” he glanced at Abi and her grip on his shirt tightened even more. “I thought she was a cute stalker.”
“S-stalker? I met you by accident, too! I didn’t know who you were before that day!” Abi suddenly butted in before she sunk back on her seat.

“Oh, that’s cute. It seems like it was a fated day for both of you,” Abi’s old grandma said and Alex nodded.
“What do you do for a living?” Andrew asked again.
Alex fell silent for a moment.
“I am currently working a part time job.”
“May I know what kind of part time job?”
Dad: “. . .”
Grandma and Grandpa: “…!”
“You are babysitting?” Andrew sounded like he couldn’t believe him. But then, Alex didn’t even hesitate to nod and there was no sign of mischief in his eyes.
“I am trying to raise a little fruit.”
“Oh, so you’re into gardening.”
Abi finally coughed.
“Alex likes peaches,” was the first thing that popped into her head and out of her mouth as she tried to change the topic.
“Are your family live in this city?”
“No, they have all passed away,” he answered without any change in his expression and tone and the kitchen fell silent.
“I’m sorry to hear that…” Andrew’s voice became soft as his gaze towards Alex softened.
“It’s okay. I kind of don’t really remember their faces anymore,” he told them before he picked another meat and ate it.
He was acting quite unconcerned, almost as if he was simply talking about a forgotten old fading photograph.
“Uhm… dad, can Alex stay here for the night?” Because of Abi’s frantic desire to break the awkward silence, those words were all that she could think of to say. She bit her lip because she knew that her father will definitely disagree but what was done is done. The most important thing was that she was able to divert their attention from that topic.
“Oh, of course, darling… It’s already pretty late. He can stay for the night if he wants to. But let’s eat first and talk about that later,” her grandma was the one who spoke and everyone did as she said.
The dinner was harmonious. Abi and her family smiled and laughed every now and again as they talked about the play. Abi and her grandma spoke a lot while the three men simply listened to them, butting in every now and then, while Alex didn’t speak another word but just nodded every now and again to let them know he was paying attention.
He kind of like this foreign atmosphere, maybe because this was the same kind of atmosphere he felt whenever Abigail was around.
Once the dinner was done, Abi and her grandma did the dishes while the men sat on the sofa.
Abi was a little restless but her grandma calmed her down, telling her that everything was alright. And she was right. Every bit of Alex’s attention was focused on the photos around the house. After he looked at all the picture frames hanging around the house, he sat down and Andrew showed him big albums filled with photos of Abi from birth.
Andrew was thinking about what topic he should start a conversation with but he was hesitant and careful. This young man didn’t know about Abi’s illness and he was very worried about that. He was worried about his daughter and this young man.
The man ended up being lost in thought without starting any conversation while the young man across him was fully immersed in looking at the photos until Abi was done in the kitchen.
“Ahh!!” Abi yelled the moment she saw the album in Alex’s hand. She had lots of dorky pictures in there!
Abi attempted to snatch it but Alex was quick to move it away, causing Abi to pout.
“Dad, why did you bring those out?” Abi complained to her father and the man just sighed.
“Anyway, Alexander, are you sure you’re fine to sleep here tonight?” he asked and Alex looked at him and nodded.
“We don’t have a guest room so you will be sleeping in my room,” Andrew told him but this time, Alex didn’t nod anymore.
“I will sleep in Abigail’s room. I am more comfortable whenever I sleep with her,” Alex replied and the man’s eyes widened in shock.
“Whenever? Y-you already slept with my daughter?” Andrew asked in disbelief and Alex finally realized that the man was talking about something else. He was about to explain when the little lamb butted in.
“Dad… it’s fine. Uhm…”
“Abigail, you already slept with this boyfriend of yours?”
Abigail hesitantly nodded. Andrew’s mouth parted and he didn’t know what to say. It was then that Abi’s grandma pushed the couple to go and settle down in Abi’s room.
Once Abi and Alex ascended upstairs, the old grandma faced her son and patted his shoulder.
“It’s okay, Andrew. Your daughter is already an a.d.u.l.t. And I am sure this is what she wants. Let’s not be hard on her now, okay?” she encouraged her son and Andrew knew that his mother was right. Abigail was not a kid anymore; she had grown into a very beautiful lady. But still, to think that they had already gone that far… Andrew couldn’t help but worry. Again, not just for Abi but for that young man as well.
Hellbound With You Chapter 146 – Wasted
Inside Abi’s room, Alex was once again looking around like a curious child.
Abi’s room was made of wood and her curtains were yellow. There was a shelf filled with books on one wall and her bed sat on the corner by the other wall. He noticed that her bed wasn’t that big. She also had a study table, a closet and a single sofa chair by the window.
Alex sat on her bed and Abi told him to wait there so she could go and get him some clothes to change into. Her grandma helped her find a clean shirt and trousers that might be big enough to fit Alex.
Fortunately, they were able to find some which Abi immediately brought to him.
Alex was the first to go into the shower. Once he came out, Abi couldn’t help but gape at him. Well, Alex dressed in a normal printed shirt and printed pajama pants was just a sight to behold. He almost looked like an ordinary man, if not for his unfading gracefulness and built in imposing aura.
The man glanced at Abi as he dried his hair with his towel. How could he still look deadly handsome despite the fact that his shirt was printed with cardcaptor Sakura’s picture?
Abi then entered the bathroom after him after telling Alex not wait for her and to go upstairs first. He watched the bathroom’s door closed and he looked at the quiet living room. It seemed that her family was already in their beds and were probably getting ready to sleep.
Upon reaching Abi’s room, Alex’s gaze roamed around again. His gaze caught the yellow scarves hanging on the back of the door, neatly arranged.
This room, just as he expected, was so little-lambish. It was warm, pure and peaceful, just like Abigail. He thought that this kind of place would suffocate him, because a place like this would never be suited for someone like him but… for some reason, his body seemed to like it here more than what he could accept.
After a while, the door opened and Abigail entered. Her hair was tied in a bun and she wasn’t wearing pajamas tonight. She was wearing a comfy pair of shorts and an oversized shirt which was printed with a superman logo.
She smiled at him, seeing that he seemed comfortable as he sat on the bed with a book in his hand.
She crawled on the bed and asked, “What are you reading?” She tilted her head and when she saw its title, her brows creased. Shades? She didn’t remember owning a book with that title.
Alex’s lips curved s.e.xily as he bent and pinched Abi’s chin.
“I didn’t know that you actually read something like this, little fruit,” his voice was husky and s.e.xy.
“Hm, where did you get that?”
“Under your bed, Abigail.”
“Ah! That’s Kelly’s stuff!” she exclaimed. “She told me not to touch the stuff in her box and asked me to keep it there until she picked them up when she came over.”
Somehow, Alex had kind of expected this.
“So this is what’s inside her box? Why did she sternly forbid me from touching it?” she curiously said as she sat next to him. “Is the book good?”
She leaned in to have a look at it but Alex abruptly closed it.
“Well, I saw a pretty interesting scene,” he said and Abi’s eyes widened in curiosity.
“Really? You like this book? Ah, how about you let me read it to you? I mean, I still haven’t read a book back to you.”
Alex was speechless. He was trying not to do anything tonight because they were in her room and inside her family’s house but here she was… doing this to him.
“I can’t think about anything else that we can do so I better pay you one of my debts tonight,” she said, stretching her hand out to take the book.
Alex pinched her chin again. “Abigail, this could turn to –”
The girl caught his face and moved her face closer to his. “It’s okay Alex, I’d like to read you a book tonight,” she told him and with just that, Alex’s self-control was thrown out the window.
A while ago, when he scanned the book and saw this particular content, he suddenly started imagining dirty things, thinking about doing naughty things with her in this room that was filled with Abigail’s scent, the room where she grew up in and it was unexpectedly turning him on.
He cursed himself and tried to shake the thoughts away, telling himself that the room might not be soundproofed and that her family was here but because of his innocent little fruit, his effort to keep his cool was wasted.
“Fine, but… your voice might leak out, Abigail… are you not worried about that?” his voice had turned huskier.
“It’s okay, dad wont here anything, unless of course, if he eavesdropped by the door, but don’t worry, dad will not do something like that,” she assured him, causing Alex to want to pinch the skin between his brows.
Alex stood up and turned the bedside lamp on. “You can read with just the bedside lamp on, right?” he asked and when the girl nodded, he locked the door and turned the lights off.
He then sat on the bed and leaned on the headboard.
“Are you sure about this?” he asked and Abi didn’t know why but his eyes changed the moment the light turned off. It was like his beast mode had been immediately activated.
The girl nodded, as if she was hypnotised.
“Come here,” he softly said with his deep gorgeous voice and Abi felt her heart’s tempo being messed up.
She scrawled up the bed but then she stopped after a second, wondering where he wanted her to go. She looked up at him, asking for some kind of instruction, but all he gave her was a s.e.xy smirk. Abi felt her heart jump again and she forced herself to move.
She crawled up between his legs and when she was face to face with him, she turned around and sat between his legs, with her back on his chest. She then wiggled to get more comfortable and in doing so, rubbed her backside on his little monster.
He barely stopped the groan from coming out of his lips.
Once she felt comfortable, she then turned her head and looked up at him before she asked innocently, “Are you ready for me to start reading now?”
Hellbound With You Chapter 147 – Continue
Alex half bit his lips as he looked down at her big clear eyes. He was so damn turned on and the reading hadn’t even started yet.
He bent closer until his lips almost brushed against her ear. “Abigail, make sure to read this with feeling, okay?”
Abi narrowed her eyes. “Geez… who do you think I am? I could totally pass as a professional storyteller okay? I have been doing this since I was a teenager. I will make you see what real story telling is.” She was very confident and Alex could only chuckle throatily. This naïve little fruit truly was amusing.
“You better show me your professional storytelling then, Abigail. Don’t you dare cower midway,” he whispered, trailing his finger on her shoulder blade.
“But… but don’t distract me like this once I start, okay?” she negotiated.
“Hmm? You’re forbidding me to touch you?”
“Mn… while I read. I won’t be able to concentrate if your hand touches me like that.”
“Sure, no hands.” His smile was incredibly s.e.xy that Abi averted her gaze away before she fell into a daze again.
“Here we go.” He then put the book in her hand which started from Chapter 9. “I’m ready, Abigail. You may start now.”
Alex leaned his head on his knuckles, while his elbow was on top of his folded knee. His head tilted a little so he could see the girl’s expression.
“Okay, here we go,” Abi took a deep breath as anticipation brimmed in Alex’s eyes. He just couldn’t wait anymore to hear her voice.
But as she opened her lips, Alex stopped her again. “Wait, Abigail… I’d like you to replace the man’s name with mine.”
Abi’s eyes circled. “Ehh? Why?” she was surprised.
“That’s my request, Abigail. Also, change the girl’s name with yours.”
Abi blinked at him but in the end, she soon nodded, like the obedient little lamb that she was. “Oh… okay.”
“Good girl. Now start.”
Abi finally lifted the book into a reading position and she smiled at him one more time before she turned her attention to the book.
A second later, she finally began.
“”Alexander gazes down at me. “You’re so damn beautiful, Abigail,” he whispers and I blushed. His words are like honey on fire crawling under my skin, making me hot. “God, I want to suck your lips,” he added as his rough finger rubbed my lips…””
Abi suddenly paused. She finally realized what she was reading and she felt like her face was about to burst. She was so red and her heart was thumping wildly. This was something she never expected at all.
“Abigail, do professional storytellers behave like that?” he whispered, almost doing the same thing the man on the book was doing. “If you stop again, I will touch you,” he added, his voice was so hypnotic that Abi didn’t notice her lips involuntarily parting.
It was suddenly very hot in the room. H-he would touch me?
“Continue, Abigail,” he blew on her ear and the girl was jolted back to reality.
“O-okay… don’t blow in my ear like that,” she complained, her face still blazing red and the man chuckled softly.
“Then continue. Stop making me wait.”
“”He leans down and grabs my thigh and parts them, wedging his body in between. He silently looks at me as his face moves closer and closer to mine, until our noses nearly touch. And he kisses my lips gently. “I want you, A-abigail, please, m-make love with me.””
There was almost smoke coming out from Abi’s ears. This was too much for her and she paused again. Alex’s hand immediately began to crawl lightly, like a feather, from her nape to her collarbone. She felt her body tingle where his hand caressed her. “Every time you pause, I will touch you.” he whispered and Abi’s grip on the book tightened. She continued reading despite her fl.u.s.tered face and Alex’s hand left her skin.
“”He pleads and my heart and body immediately nod at him. He smiles with his bold, tantalizing eyes. He begins undressing before my eyes, revealing his body, inch by slow inch. Damn! His abs, I… I’d like to lick them. I can’t help but imagine them as delicious hard chocolate bars.
A-alexander was just too hot. He leans down and kisses me again. His lips demanding and deep as his hand skillfully and slowly peels off my clothes down to my red lacy underwear. “Oh, Abigail… I can’t wait to be inside you…””
Abi choked and she coughed softly while Alex’s hands mercilessly moved in on her again, as if he was actually waiting for the moment she paused so his unruly hands could start their business.
“What’s wrong?” his deep voice resonated in her ears as his fingers slowly travel downwards, almost like warm liquid travelling down to her twin peaks. “You said I like peaches, right?” he suddenly asked.
“I… I only said that to –”
“Actually, I do like them now. Although, I think these are the only peaches I will ever like.”
His hand was already on her twin peaches as he whispered those words, causing Abi to gasp.
“A-alex… wait… I’ll continue now…” Abi frantically lifted the book again and she continued reading. She didn’t know how reading a book ended up like this. After this, she would never trust Alex’s choice of book ever again.
“”He looks down into my eyes and utters, “open your legs for me, A-abigail.” My eyes go to his face. I feel like I am too intoxicated to move. “Ah, you’re not being obedient, Abigail, shall I punish you?”
He smiles, a s.e.xy and wicked kind of smile. I don’t shake my head. I feel like I want to experience the punishment he is talking about. “Tell me, Abigail, do you want me to punish you?” He licks my lips down to my jawline. “C’mon, tell me, baby. What do you want me to do?””Punish me, Alexander,” I replied…””
Hellbound With You Chapter 148 – Touch me
Abi buried her face on the open book. Reading those lines out loud, combined with the fact that she was using their names, made this all feel too much for her. But before she could even recover from the heat, Alex’s hands touched one of the twin peaches again, even squeezing her n.i.p.p.l.e slightly. Oh no,
she couldn’t afford to be distracted! But the way Alex played with her, the way his hands were moving around her body… she just couldn’t handle it.
“Ah, Alex, wait…”
“Hmm? I feel like you are asking me to punish you for real, Abigail. Are you? Huh?” he whispered as his hand slipped under her large shirt, gently caressing her molds through her bra. “Tell me Abigail… You’re stopping because you wanted me to touch you, right?”
“No, I… I was just embarrassed reading it. I… ah, Alex….” A little tear began to appear in the corner of Abi’s eyes. It wasn’t because of fear or pain, but pure pleasure. What Alex was doing to her was just too much for her that her body reacted like this.
“Hmm? You’re embarrassed? From reading the book or from my touch?” he asked. He then started placing little butterfly kisses on her nape. Abi’s breathing started to become shallow. How could she even think when he was touching her body like this? His hands, his lips, his breath against her skin and his deep, husky voice… how could she even stand her ground against all those?
“Answer me, Abigail,” he demanded. He didn’t stop what he was doing and Abi could only wiggle, trying to escape from his solid arms. “You don’t like what I’m doing to you right now? Do you hate it when I touch you here?” he stared into her intoxicated eyes. “Tell me, do you hate this?” he pressed, his gaze like a black hole sucking her in, forcing the words out of her mouth before her brain could even process what they were.
“I don’t hate it, Alex,” she replied and the man’s lips curved up. There was a triumphant look on his face as he s.e.xily half bit his bottom lip.
“Damn it, Abigail…” he groaned and the next moment, his lips captured hers.
Abi m.o.a.ned under his lips. It was hot. His lips delved even deeper and she felt his tongue say hello to hers. She didn’t know if he was deliberately trying to shut her brain down but that was what happened. Her brain stopped thinking and her body took over.
By the time their lips parted, Abi was gasping for air. Alex’s eyes were sparkling intensely, filled with desire.
“Abigail… do you want to continue reading? Or do you want me to continue touching you?” he questioned and Abi felt her face burned again. How… how could he ask her that?
“I… I’ll continue… reading…” she replied and the man took a deep breath, as if to capture back his self control that seemed to have escaped.
“What a stubborn, little fruit,” was what he said and he leaned his head on his knuckles again, though that intense look in his eyes didn’t disappear. It remained there, idling, ready to go.
Both of them were already sweating. Their breaths were warm and their skin felt hot against each other. But Abi persisted and continued reading. How could she admit to him that she’d rather be touched by him than continue reading like this? She might die from embarrassment.
“”Suddenly, Alexander tugs my p-panties off. I gasp and cover myself but he quickly catches my hand. “No need to be shy, babe. You’re very beautiful down there,” he murmurs with his scorching eyes and I gape at him. However, when he pulls his boxers off, I am left in shock at what I see. I suddenly feel a little scared. His pen… his pe…”
“His what, Abigail?” Alex smirked. He saw how red her face was now. It was such a s.e.xy sight and he couldn’t get enough of it. This little pink peach was driving him to the very edge and he couldn’t wait for her to give in. But his little fruit said it, that word that she could hardly bring out of her mouth, and the little monster hardened even more. Sh*t! Abigail!
“”He orders me to pull my knees up and I obey. “Are you ready, A-abigail? I’m going to f… fu…”””
Abi finally buried her face in her hands, letting go of the book. “I’m sorry, Alex… I am too embarrassed to read it,” she confessed, hiding her face and Alex smiled.
“So me, touching you is less embarrassing?”
“Abigail…” he called out. His voice sank lower than what she thought was possible as he kissed the back of her hands that were covering her face. “Tell me you want me to touch you,” he whispered, pulling down her hands. His eyes were like hypnotic dark crystals, and it was impossible for her to escape. “C’mon, I want to hear it…”
His hands weren’t on her body anymore at this point but his breaths, his voice and his eyes were doing their work and she couldn’t resist. She didn’t know what he did to her but when he wasn’t touching her, she wanted his hands all over her so badly. When his warm skin left her, she longed for it… it was strange. Her body was slowly becoming like a stranger to her.
And before she knew it…
“T-touch me, Alex…” she uttered. No!
Abi’s eyes widened as soon as she realized what she said. How could she say those words? They can’t do naughty things here! Her family might…
But it was too late because Alex immediately bent down and kissed her passionately as his hand freely roamed all over her body under her shirt. He was barely holding on to his self control as he tasted her sweet lips.
Just as Alex was about to move his hands lower, there was a sudden knock on the door.
Hellbound With You Chapter 149 – Frustrated
Abi felt like ice cold water was poured over her the moment she heard a knock on the door. She pushed Alex off of her and she looked at him with wide eyes.
And then, before the man could register why the little fruit pushed him, Abi slipped away from under him like a swift ninja. The man could only blink and his brows knotted in a hard knot as he looked at the girl who just escaped from his grasp.
Abi moved as if the room was on fire.
“Dad?” she said as she pulled the door open.
Andrew raised a brow, seeing that her light was already off.
“We’re you two already sleeping?” the man asked, glancing behind Abi.
“Uhm… I was reading a book to him.”
“Oh, anyway, I just came to say goodnight. You guys should sleep now, Abi, it’s late,” he told her, glancing behind her again.
Andrew actually momentarily forgot that a man was inside his daughter’s room and he had already knocked when he remembered it. He always checked on Abi like this on his way to the small balcony because he worried about her sleeping late. Ever since she was diagnosed with her illness, her doctor always reminded them to help her maintain a healthy sleeping habit.
“Yes, dad. We’re going to sleep now. Goodnight.”
Once the door closed Abi slowly walked towards Alex, who was again leaning against the headboard.
“Uhm… Alex, let’s sleep now, okay?” she whispered as she hesitantly crawled to his side.
“No, I –”
“Shh…” Abi put her finger on his lips. “Dad is right next to us so please be quiet. Uhm… he always sits on the balcony for an hour or two, just looking out into the world before he sleeps, so he is right there across this wall,” she explained, her expression almost begging him.
But what Alex did next was pin her down on the bed. His breath was still shallow.
“Are you saying that I’m going to have to sleep like this? Huh? Abigail?” he whispered. His hardness brushed against her body and she felt it throb. Oh no! What should she do? His little monster’s really rock hard!
“I’m sorry… but we can’t. Please, daddy’s here. Uhm… I will make it up to you once we’re back in your house, I promise.”
Alex groaned under his breath.
“Shit, Abigail. There no way I can –”
Abigail suddenly wrapped her hands around his neck and pulled him in her embrace. “You can, Alex. Please? I know you can. Just this once, okay?” she continued coaxing him, caressing his hair so gently.
Alex was so damn frustrated. How the hell could he sleep like this? Damn!
“It’s okay, you can do this. I’m sure if you sleep, little big monster will also sleep.”
Alex groaned again. He was doing his very best not to move on his own and ignore her pleas. He thought that this girl was truly asking for impossible. How the hell could he sleep if his little monster was standing tall and hard like this?! This little fruit had no idea what kind of torture she was asking him to go though!
“Abigail, I don’t think I –”
“Shh…” she stopped him again. “Don’t worry, I will help you sleep, okay?” she said and she hugged him even tighter, and then, she gently pushed him, making him lie back.
The man, who was dying from frustration, gritted his teeth as Abi looked down at him. But then, the next moment, Abi bent and kissed his forehead. That magical kiss that appeared out of nowhere made his eyes widen and he felt like time stood still for a moment.
“Goodnight, Alex.” Her eyes shone so bright before she turned the light off and wiggled her body near him. One arm wrapped on top of his torso as she pulled her body next to him and hugged him.
And thus, for the first time in his life, the great Alexander Qin had to sleep with an excited little big monster.
Little fruit, you will pay for this once we’re home!
The next morning, Alex woke up in Abi’s bed alone. The sun was just peeking from the horizon. He cracked his neck as he sat on the bed, with his one long leg on the floor. He couldn’t believe he had actually slept this long. He couldn’t even remember the last time he slept to the point that his neck needed to be stretched like this upon waking up.
A disbelieving smirk curved on his lips as he ran his fingers through his hair and he plopped his big body on the bed again, his arms wide and with one leg still on the floor.
He stared at the ceiling and he couldn’t stop himself from smiling. He remembered what happened last night and he shook his head. He had actually really fallen asleep like that and to think that he didn’t even need to force himself to sleep. It was like she had lulled him to sleep with magic. Was it that kiss?
He shook his head again before he stood up and went downstairs. The two women were happily doing some house chores while the men were reading newspapers while drinking coffee.
When Abi saw Alex, she quickly dragged him to the table.
That morning, Alex joined the family in their usual morning routine and he actually didn’t mind it at all. He ate breakfast with them until it was finally time for them to leave.
By the door, Abi kissed her family goodbye.
“Alexander, if you ever want to visit again, our humble house is always open to you,” the old grandma told Alex with a bright smile and Alex glanced at Abi before he hesitantly nodded.
“T –” Alex started as his eyes wandered for a moment. “T-thanks for having me,” he said and Abi beamed with the brightest smile she had ever worn. Her family didn’t know this but Abi knew how much of a big deal that single ‘thank you’ meant, because since she first met Alex, she never heard this man say those words to anyone.
Abi was still smiling widely as she waved her family goodbye from inside the car, before they sped off.
Hellbound With You Chapter 150 – News
After dropping Abi off at the orphanage, Alex arrived back at his mansion with a pleasant face.
He had just entered the living room when a series of coughs echoed around him. Xavier, who had just come from the dining hall, choked the moment he saw Alex. What the f*** was he wearing?!
Zeke and Kai, who came into the room after Xavier, saw Alex’s clothes and they too immediately looked dumbstruck. An anime printed shirt and mint colored printed pajama pants… bloody hell, Alexander Qin! What did you eat today?!
Without question, the three men could already tell who was behind Alex’s outfit today. This must have been his little lamb’s doing, no doubt about it!
“Alex… did you sleep in Abi’s house?” Xavier asked as he circled around Alex. He was acting like he was checking to see if this Alex was the real Alexander Qin.
Alex didn’t answer and he just sat on his usual seat near the fireplace.
“Xavier, come here.” He lifted his hand and gestured for Xavier to come without bothering to turn his head to look.
“Hmm? What is it?” Xavier asked. His eyes were big and round like a cute, little puppy’s eyes. It seemed he was excited about what this man was about to say.
Alex brushed his lips against the back of his fingers. He seemed to be thinking about something quite important. He glanced at Xavier with narrowed eyes while the man in front of him almost looked like he was wagging his invisible tail as he waited in anticipation. However…
“Never mind,” Alex suddenly said as he waved his hand away, dismissing Xavier.
Xavier was speechless. How could this man do this to him? Darn it, Alex!
While Xavier was yelling at Alex inwardly, Kai walked towards Alex and spoke.
“Luisa is here,” he said and the pleasant atmosphere around Alex dramatically disappeared. His brows knitted as he glared at Kai.
A woman then entered the room. Her heels made soft clicking sounds on the marble floor as she waltzed her way towards Alexander. She was extremely beautiful and had a body that every other woman in the world would envy.
“My mother said you don’t like to be disturbed at night, Alexander.” She gracefully sat across Alex and smiled at him but Alex’s expression didn’t change.
“Tell me why you’re here, Luisa,” Alex ordered and the girl stood up and slowly approached him. She bent over him, revealing her flawless cleavage as she s.e.xily whispered in Alex’s ear.
“Are you sure you don’t want to send these three gentlemen away first? It could be dangerous if they hear this, Alex. This is a very important matter.”
Alex closed his eyes before he abruptly stood up.
“Follow me,” he ordered and then he headed towards the grand staircase. The woman just smiled triumphantly as she followed behind him.
Zeke’s eyes never left the woman’s face until she and Alex slowly disappeared up the stairs.
“Tsk! What’s the point of hiding it from us?” Xavier complained.
“She probably didn’t want Zeke to hear,” answered Kai as he glanced at Zeke, who was now wearing his coat.
Zeke’s lips simply curved up into a quick half smile before he wordlessly walked away, heading to the entrance door.
“Hey, are you not interested about what Luisa came here for?” Xavier called out.
“Not even a little bit,” he responded coolly, before the door closed behind him.
“Sigh… that boring guy…”
Upstairs, Luisa’s smile faded the moment Alex brought her to one of the receiving rooms on the second floor. She had expected him to bring her to the third floor, not this place! And he didn’t even choose the finest one, he simply chose the one closest to the stairs!
“Speak,” Alex leaned his shoulder by the door as soon as they entered the room. His face was serious and his gaze was sharp but to Luisa, this was perfectly normal. Alex had always been like this since the day they first met, long ago.
Luisa s.e.xily bit her lips and she moved closer to him.
“Why don’t we take our time, Alex?” she said seductively. “I’ve missed the way you taste…”
She started kissing Alex’s nape as she whispered those words. Her hands went straight to his thigh and started to crawl their way up. There was a seductive, satisfied smile on her face because she already knew very well what buttons to press to make this man react the way she wanted him to.
But before Luisa could even kiss him again, Alex’s hand flew to her neck. He cupped her neck with one hand as he pushed her away at arm’s length.
“What did I tell you? Didn’t I tell you to speak?” His voice became menacing. “Or do you want me to choke you to death first? Huh? Luisa?”
Luisa was shocked. She didn’t expect Alex to react like this. She had known this man for many years and even though he never loved anyone, this man loved s.e.x and beautiful women. This had never been a big deal to him in the past and this was something that she had always done with him every time they met.
In all that time, he had never reacted like this. What happened to this man? It hadn’t even been a month yet since she was last with him.

“Don’t make me repeat myself and tell me what that mother of yours found out this time,” he continued.
Luisa knew that she could no longer speak with him normally now that he was like this. Aggravating him any further was the last thing she wanted to do otherwise, she wouldn’t even know how she died.
“Alex… mother wants me to tell you that there’s no more doubt about it. It really is her.”
As soon as those words left Luisa’s mouth, Alex’s hand on her neck slowly loosened and fell to his side. His eyes widened and he looked like he just heard the most devastating piece of news.
