Hellbound With You Chapter 191 – Finally here
The Chen family and Alex were dining peacefully and harmoniously in the kitchen. As per last time, Abi’s grandma did the same thing again and heaped a mountain of food on Alex’s plate.
But this time, Alex didn’t wait for Abi to offer him her help. The man just started feeding Abi instead.
“Eat more,” Alex told her as he lifted a spoonful of food near her lips. Alex wasn’t even bothered by the presence of Abi’s family members. His eyes were on Abi the whole time and nothing else.
Abi was blushing as she quickly devoured the food on his spoon, glancing shyly at her dad and grandparents. Her dad and grandpa just continued eating while her grandma was smiling as she watched them, looking amused.
“My, my, how sweet of you, Alex, dear,” Abi’s grandma said with a pleased smile. “But you should eat, too. Abi, feed him as well. He’s forgetting to feed himself because of you,” she suggested and Abi’s complexion turned even redder.
But Alex looked at the grandma and told her it was okay. “I’m not really hungry,” he said but Abi stabbed a piece of meat with her fork and lifted it near his lips. Alex happily ate it and the couple fed each other throughout dinner that way.
Abi’s pale face had somehow gotten better and her family was so relieved at seeing her looking fine again. Andrew never said a word to Alex. He finally understood the reason behind the uneasy feeling he felt the first time he met Alex on that stage during Abi’s play.
He was uneasy because of something he saw in the young man’s eyes. The way he looked at Abi was exactly the same as the way he looked whenever he had stared at his late wife. He could see the depth of his love for her and he could only sigh silently.
After their dinner, Alex and Abi sat with her family in the living room. Alex was holding Abi’s hand tightly because Abi seemed to be feeling nervous. Even though she had already agreed with Alex’s request, she still couldn’t help but feel worried, not for herself but for Alex.
But thinking that she could finally do something for him, even if it was just granting this one request of his, she would definitely do it no matter what the result may be.
“I’d like to ask for your permission and let me take Abi with me for six days,” Alex told them. His face was serious and his voice was full of sincerity.
“Oh, you’re planning to go away on vacation?” the old grandma asked, looking quite excited.
When Alex nodded politely, Andrew spoke. “When do you plan to go?” he asked and Alex felt so relieved. It was a relief that Abi’s family were very lenient.
“Tomorrow,” he replied and Andrew sighed. He looked at Abi and asked his daughter this time.
“Do you want to go?” Andrew was scrutinizing his daughter’s face. He had spoken with her this morning while she was crying and he was glad because his daughter seemed to have chosen to face her fears head on. Seeing the new sign of fighting spirit in her eyes,
Andrew was relieved and was very proud of her. Because his daughter was strong. No matter what anyone said, she was a strong, sweet girl.
Abi looked at Alex before she faced her dad and answered him. “Yes dad, I want to go.”
With that, Abi’s family didn’t ask any more questions. Her grandmother even told them to go and pack their things now upon hearing that their flight was going to be early in the morning.
In Abi’s room, Abi just took few things with her because her things were already at Alex’s house.
“I will only need these,” she said as she zipped a small bag. She stood up to leave when her eyes caught the lovely jellyfishes. She walked over to them, watched them closely as she touched the tank. “I want to take them with us.” She pouted when Alex hugged her from behind.
“You can’t. They will die if we move them again. Your dad already promised to take care of them,” Alex assured her and Abi finally let go.
Once they were by the door, Abi hugged all her beloved family.
“Be careful on you trip, okay?” her grandmother said and Abi nodded. She then walked towards the car as Alex slightly bowed his head towards them, something that he still wasn’t used to doing, and turned to leave when Andrew, who was standing one step above him, held his shoulder.
“Take care of Abi,” he said, his voice exuding a tone of loving concern.
Alex faced him and looked at him with certainty and assurance. “I will take care of her,” he declared and Andrew nodded.
“Well then, drive safely.”
Andrew then glanced at his daughter one more time while Alex remained standing there like he was unsure if it was rude for him to turn his back to his girlfriend’s father first.
Seeing him still not moving, Andrew told him to go and when he finally jumped in the car, Andrew smiled as he watched them disappear into the horizon.
The car arrived at Alex’s mansion early that night.
Abi nervously stood in front of the huge double doors. She couldn’t believe it was just last night when she decided to leave this place forever. But now, here she was again, standing before this very place. This place that was filled with the memories she created with Alex.
It was still hard to believe.
“Come, Abigail,” Alex called out stretching his hand before her. Abi placed her hand in his as she smiled despite her hammering heartbeats and then, they both entered the house.
No one was around so they both went straight to the third floor. Once they were in Abi’s room, Abi suddenly felt like she had missed this place so much.
It was like a dream. She sat on the bed, with her legs swinging, and looked at Alex. The man walked over to her and looked deeply into her eyes.
“I can’t believe you’re here again,” He suddenly said. “I came here last night and… not seeing you here… it was maddening,” he confessed and Abi gaped at him. She imagined him being here last night, all alone, and the first thing she did was embrace him tight.
“I’m here now, Alex,” she uttered, trying her best to console him.
Alex smiled and kissed her hair. “Mm. I know.” You’re finally here and I’m not going to let you go again…
Hellbound With You Chapter 192 – Simple
The next morning…
The private jet Alex and Abi had boarded early that morning landed on a certain airport. Abi thought that this place was their destination but she was completely wrong as Alex led her to another plane.
This time, the plane was smaller compared to the larger commercial planes sitting at their terminals. The pointy-nosed, flat topped aircraft looked like a shark with wings, especially with its blue-gray coating.
Alex told her it was called King Air and it was his favorite turboprop aircraft. Abi could only nod. She wasn’t even surprised anymore when he said he owned this aircraft, too. She wondered if he also owned a jetfighter or a luxury yacht and was hiding them somewhere.
Abi and Alex both boarded this plane and Abi was in awe as she saw how it was inside. She walked into the belly of the plane where she saw luxurious, leather seats, laid out in a rectangular fashion, up towards the middle so that people could converse in comfort between each other.
She even saw pyramid style cabinets at each corner which provided easy access to drinks and snacks. There was a gap in the middle of the seats, the walkway, which led to the back of the plane.
When Alex headed that way with their luggage, she followed, walking through the doors after him. When she saw what was behind the door, she couldn’t keep her mouth from making a large ‘O’. Through those doors was a bedroom with an ensuite.
At the very tail end of the plane was a bed that spanned the width of the plane. It looked so soft and inviting. Just to the left of the door was the bathroom and to the right was a small closet. Now this was far better than flying first class!
After putting their things away, Alex led Abi to the c.o.c.kpit. She thought he was just going to show her what it looked like. However, to Abi’s shocked surprise, there were no pilots inside. Don’t tell me…
She looked at him with wide eyes and his signature smirk kissed his face.
“Yes, Abigail, I’m the pilot,” he said confidently as he sat on the pilot’s seat.
“But… you’re alone…”
“Yep. Don’t worry, Abigail, this aircraft can be flown by a single pilot. Now sit.”
“Eh?” Abi’s eyes widened. He wanted her to seat in the co-pilot’s seat?!
Alex chuckled at her reaction.
“Stop worrying. You’ll be fine as long as you don’t touch anything. I can’t possibly leave you inside the cabin alone,” he said, helping her on her seat and settling her there before she could even react.
After making sure that all safety measures were in place, Alex sat back and started to pilot the plane. He started the engine, flocked this switch and that but Abi wasn’t afraid. She trusted this man’s skills. He was perfect in everything he did, well, maybe with the exception of cutting avocados.
But somehow, she was nervous because this c.o.c.kpit somehow looked like an intricate office. Seeing the three large 14-inch touchscreen flight displays, a pair of cursor-control devices and a qwerty keyboard… Abi couldn’t help but feel nervous.
Noticing her nervous expression, Alex drew closer and kissed her cheek.
Abi’s head flew towards his face. Alex, giving her a peck on her cheek… Abi’s face turned into a cooked shrimp.
“I told you, don’t worry. Trust me,” he assured and Abi shook her head.
“I trust you, Alex. It’s just that, what if I accidentally touch something?”
“It’s okay, I know you’re a well behaved little lamb.” He smirked, completely unfazed and relaxed. Seeing his calm expression eased her. That’s right. There was no reason to feel nervous – all she had to do was not touch anything.
After heaving a deep sigh, Abi showed him a smile.
“Ready?” Alex asked and when she nodded, he smiled before he focused his gaze out front.
Abi watched him do his magic. She saw him tap on the touch screen and it looked like he was able to manipulate the flight with a simple swipe of a finger.
Abi was so focused on watching what Alex was doing that she lost track of time.
“We’re taking off now, Abigail.” Alex’s voice rang in her ear and the plane started to move. Abi held her breath as they took off the runway.
“Breathe, Abigail,” Alex’s voice rang again, with a hint of both playfulness and seriousness in his voice. His words made Abi relax and she breathed out.
The plane climbed upwards and was now flying beautifully like a calm paper plane above the clouds. It was quite stable and Abi felt so at ease that she was all smiles throughout the whole flight.
Once the plane landed, Abi finally asked Alex the burning question. She hadn’t wanted to distract him during the fight so she didn’t ask him anything at all about why he chose this place.
The sky was clear but she could tell that they were somewhere within the arctic circle. No wonder Alex packed her winter clothes this morning. She knew of this country but this town that they landed on was unfamiliar to Abi. The place was covered with white snow and the birch trees were white, looking so magical.
“Alex, what’s the name of this town?” she asked as they boarded a car.
“Why did you choose this place? I thought you we would be going to an island.”
“Hmm… I considered going to an island but I changed my mind.”
“Because it’s cold here and I know you have a low tolerance to the cold.”
Abi creased her brows. He knew she had low tolerance to the cold? Wait… he chose this place because of that?
Seeing Abi’s confused face, Alex’s pleasant laugh echoed inside the car.
“Well, my reason is simple.” He smirked s.e.xily. “I chose a cold place so I could cuddle with you all night and day.”
Abi: “. . .”
Hellbound With You Chapter 193 – Isolated
As they travelled further away from the airport, she could no longer see any houses. It seemed Alex was really bringing her to an isolated place.
After more than an hour’s drive, the car stopped in front of another seemingly old mansion.
It was another three storey mansion, much like the mansion Alex lived in, but this one looked more like a fairytale house come to life, especially in this snow-covered setting. Stone walls made up the foundation of the walls, with wooden walls making up the second layer. The A-frame, wooden windows were lined with lights, clearly distinguishing their outlines. The shine of the lights combined with the snow gave the house a type of glow that made it seem mysterious.
“The lights are on,” she uttered as she looked up, curious, since the man told her they were going somewhere where no one was around but them.
“There are some people inside. Caretakers, and cooks,” he answered. “Come, I know you’re tired. We’ll rest here for a while.”
“Eh? This isn’t our destination yet?” Abi’s big eyes widened. She thought this was it, the isolated place he was talking about.
“Not yet, Abigail. I told you, I don’t want any other people around. That place will only have the two of us.”
Alex held her hand and brought her inside. As Abi looked around the spacious, hotel-like living room, she could only marvel. Was this house Alex’s too? Or just an isolated hotel?
While Alex was speaking with a man, seemingly giving instructions, Abi looked around and realized that this might really be Alex’s. Well, the aesthetics, the presence of a fireplace and the setting gave her the same feeling of home, of belonging when she was at Alex’s house.
When Alex walked over to her, he led her inside a room on the third floor. Abi removed her thick coat and shoes and let herself fall on top of the fluffy bed.
Alex did the same and he sat right next to her.
“How do you feel?” he asked, looking intensely at her.
Abi stared back at him before her lips curved up into a sweet smile, because for some reason, it didn’t seem hard to do this. Even though she knew something painful was waiting at the end of this trip, at this moment, she was glad that she could still feel genuinely happy.
She was glad because it seemed like it was possible for them to forget about everything right now and just look at each other and spend these remaining days to their hearts content, happily.
“I feel wonderful, Alex,” she answered, her eyes glimmered as she rose and hug him. “It doesn’t seem that hard, forgetting about everything else being in this place.”
Alex was relieved. He pinched her chin and stared at her lips. His thumb caressed her lower lip and then before they knew it, they were kissing. ‘I will make you forget everything, Abigail… I’ll make sure of it…’ he told her in his mind as their kiss became deeper.
They were both breathless once their lips parted. Their gazes, intense and their skin, hot.
The next moment, Abi lay on the bed and Alex was on top of her. His tongue skillfully played tag with hers, tasting every corner of her delicious mouth.
They didn’t stop kissing for a long moment. It was like they’ve been so hungry for each other since they parted, like all the chains had been broken and they were kissing without restraints, like they had finally let themselves completely get lost in each other’s worlds. Their kiss slowly intensified, from slow and passionate to wild, intense kisses.
Alex’s hand began to wander around her body. His hands slipped under her top roaming and caressing her warm skin, causing Abi to m.o.a.n against his ravenous tongue.
His little monster had long been standing tall and proud, now grinding naughtily into Abi’s groin.
Their lips parted again, their eyes both looking glazed, intoxicated, lost in pleasure. But before Alex could resume, a knock startled them.
Alex’s eyes widened slightly when he saw that his hands were already under her shirt, touching her smooth and soft skin. He also realized his little monster was already raging hard and he pressed his lips tightly, like he just mentally scolded himself.
He cleared his throat and he climbed off of her and walked towards the door. He opened it slightly and his hoarse voice echoed.
“Good,” was all he said before he shut the door and looked at his girl.
Abi was already sitting there, her face flushed red. Damn it! That dreamy look in her eyes was so arousing it made Alex just want to pound on her.
Abi’s line of sight fell on the mouth Everest that emerged in his groin and she shyly looked away.
Of course, Alex saw her reaction and he cleared his throat once again. He picked up her coat and gave it to her.
“We’re leaving,” he said as he put on his coat. Abi hesitantly stood and wore her thick jacket. She kept glancing at Alex but the man was composed and calm as he opened the door for her.
A van was waiting for them outside. A man gave the key to Alex and he climbed on the driver’s seat.
Alex had just started the engine when he caught Abi glancing down at his groin. Her face burned when she realized she was caught.
“I… I’m just a little worried,” she suddenly said, sounding defensive, and a mischievous smile curved on Alex’s face.
“About what?” he leaned a little closer.
“I just wonder if… if you’re okay… your little monster is…” she bit her lip as she blushed even harder, and Alex struggled to keep his cool.
He turned his gaze on the road as he replied. “Don’t worry, little lamb. Let the little monster be. The little man needs to learn how to calm itself down.”
Abi blinked at him. “A-are you sure?”
Alex closed his eyes before he gazed at her. “Stop seducing me, Abigail. I’m trying to be a good boy right now. At least wait until we reach our destination,” he teased and Abi’s mouth could only drop in disbelief.
Hellbound With You Chapter 194 – House
They’d been driving towards the top of a small hill. The rough road was covered with snow and everything she saw out the windows and windscreen was simply breathtaking. Pure white, undisturbed snow covered everything and it was so peaceful because there was nothing else out there but them. Abi wondered if there was a house somewhere in this place.
They were already pretty far from that mansion and yet the car still kept going farther and farther. But Abi was enjoying the view and somehow the suspense was filling her up with anticipation.
Finally, the car stopped at a dead end of the rough road. They seemed to be on top of a hill. A plateau-like, gigantic open space was covered in white. It was simply beautiful. Looking up at the blue sky made her feel like she was on top of the world.
“Wow!” she exclaimed as Alex climbed out of the car.
Abi jumped out as well and ran a few meters into the open space, her boots making soft crunching sounds on the snow. She ran with her arms spread wide and when she stopped, she twirled around slowly, to take it all in.
Alex leaned on the car as he watched her, sighing in relief that she seemed to like the place he chose.
“Alex!” she called as she made a snowball and threw it at him, though the snowball didn’t even reach him.
Alex laughed looking at her. “What a weak little lamb,” he murmured to himself before he walked over to her.
Abi was still picking up some snow when Alex was already standing before her. She looked up and saw him raising a brow. Thinking about his teasing in the car,
Abi stood and cupped his face with snow in her palms. And then, she ran away as she chuckled. But before she could even move further away, she slipped and fell.
“What a clumsy, little lamb,” Alex murmured as he squatted and helped her up.
“I’m not usually clumsy, okay?” she argued and Alex was about pinch her cheek when he noticed that the color her lips were already starting to turn a bit purple from the cold.
“You’re already cold?” Alex’s forehead creased and he pulled her close to him.
“Don’t lie, the color of your lips changed.” He suddenly took off his coat and put it on her, causing Abi to immediately protest.
“No, I’m fine Alex. It’s cold, you can’t remove your coat.” Even though Alex was wearing a thick, woolen, black high neck long sleeve sweater, she still thought it was too little for him, so she tried to take the jacket off but Alex’s serious face stopped her.
“I have a great tolerance to the cold, Abigail, so don’t even worry about me,” he told her sternly and without any warning, he lifted her up. “Let’s go inside the house.”
“H-house?” Abi blinked at him. She looked around but she couldn’t see any house.
Alex just smiled at her and they headed to the other side of where their car was parked. There was a wooden pathway heading upwards. There were a few birch trees around.
The moment they reached the end of the pathway, Abi’s mouth dropped.
The house was pure white, which was entirely camouflaged by the snow. It had a flat roof and a small brick tower to one side. This house was modest compared to his other mansions. It was only a one storey house and was much smaller than the others.
She saw what looked like 3 rooms or areas from where she was standing. It looked like one area was the lounge, then there was a kitchen and then the bedroom. She could tell all of this from where she was standing because two of the four walls in each room were made of glass. Yes, glass windows! She wondered if the ceiling was made of glass too.
Alex moved again before Abi could fully admire the place. He put her down by the door and opened it.
Alex stepped inside and Abi followed. The interior was perfection and she couldn’t help but be amazed once again. Alex just did not stop surprising her at every turn.
“Over here, Abigail,” Alex’s voice echoed and Abi’s attention was brought back to him. She walked over to him and Alex led her into the kitchen.
Abi saw a fridge and plenty of food stocked up on the hanging cabinets. Everything they needed was here. Looking at all of it made her inner cook self-activate.
Thinking that the man called her to show her the kitchen, Abi turned to speak when she saw Alex opening another door.
“The bathroom,” he said as he pushed it open. Abi blinked and walked over to him, speechless.
Outside the door wasn’t a typical bathroom one would find inside a house. It was an open area and there was a small pool filled with natural thermal water. There was a shower room right next to her. It looked so relaxing and she was tempted to just jump right into it and relax.
Alex started to strip. He took off his black sweater, revealing his deliciously perfect torso as he looked at her. “Come, Abigail. Let’s bathe and relax together.”
Abi swallowed and she looked around.
“Don’t worry, we’re the only ones here,” he assured her, because once again, the walls were made of glass, looking out at the white, silent world outside.
He continued undressing, clasping his belt, while he moved closer to her, not taking his eyes off her.
“You need this bath to relax your body, Abigail,” he told her as he slowly took off the coat he had dr.a.p.ed on her. He hung it on the wall behind her before his hand moved on to her jacket.
“Want me to undress you?” he asked, his voice incredibly deep and gentle, causing Abi’s heartbeat to drum ferociously.
“I… I can do it,” she said and she dashed inside the shower room right next to them. Alex watched her silhouette though the tinted glass with a s.e.xy smile on his lips.
Hellbound With You Chapter 195 – Special
Abi took a couple of breaths before she came out of the shower. Her eyes immediately searched for Alex and she saw him, already sitting on the pool, waist deep in the warm water and arms resting on the edge, staring up at her. Alex, she noticed, was still as s.e.xy and gorgeous as ever but since he confessed to her,
something seemed to have changed in him compared to that night when she first saw him n.a.k.e.d. He wasn’t that dangerously s.e.xy perfect man who always looked like a beast ready to devour its prey. Right at that moment, he was like an alluring godly creature, where his prey was the one who was willingly going to throw itself to him.
“Come, Abigail. Don’t just stand there.”
His gaze glimmered in wonder as he stared at her, admiring her smooth silky skin and her lovely curves. He watched her stand there shyly until she walked towards him in her pale pink lingerie. Her face was flushed as she tied her hair into a bun. She was just so beautiful Alex felt like he could stare at her forever and never get used to her beauty.
Abi slowly dipped her feet in the water and felt its soothing warmth. She smiled and she finally jumped in it and soaked herself in the warm water.
“How’s it?” Alex asked and Abi grinned at him in satisfaction.
“Incredible. It’s so warm…” she answered, her face filled with bliss as her hands played on top of the water. She sat across him as she relaxed, resting her head back on the edge of the pool. She moved around like an excited child, playing with the water and washing her face and Alex simply watched her.
He saw her expressions as it changed from awe to wonder to bliss to contentment and he felt a strange tickling in his chest. He was… happy. She made him happy. Just being near her like this, seeing the joy on her face, was bringing out the unknown emotion of happiness within him,
something he never expected to happen in his lifetime. So he watched her as if he was committing this moment to his memory.
Once Abi settled down, she looked up at the blue sky and smiled. “This place is just so amazing, Alex, ” she said softly, awe evident in her voice, before she gazed at him. The man also did the same and looked up at the sky. “Does this place belong to you, too? Or just the hotel in the middle of nowhere?” she asked with a hint of playfulness in her voice.
Alex’s gaze fell on her as he smirked. “This is also mine, Abigail. The entire hill, too. So rest assured no one will trespass, let alone dare to peek, either.”
Abi could only look at him with the words ‘I see’, flashing across her eyes. She wasn’t really surprised anymore. “Why did you decide to build a house here?”
“An old ruined ancient house used to stand here. I just had it renovated days ago,” he told her and Abi’s brows creased in curiosity.
“Days ago?” she asked, her mind flashing with the images of this modern, chic and elegant little place.
“Mm. That time you requested to cuddle by the fire, this place came to my mind. It’s very nice here at night. We can cuddle all night by the fire outside. You will see, later.” He smiled and Abi was speechless. Was he saying that he built this place, in just a few days, for her?
“You built this place just so… just so could bring me here?”
“Anything wrong with that?”
Abi was at a loss for words. Why was he always going through all these extremes just for her?
Now that she thought about it, ever since he had fulfilled her first request, Alex always made them extra grand, turning every simple request to something beyond spectacular. She thought that was just him, just Alex being the beyond perfect man that he was. But then, he also told her that doing those requests with her were firsts for him, too!

Suddenly, Abi moved and hugged him, surprising him. “Why? Why are you always…” she murmured. “Since the beginning, you always seemed to give me the grandest experiences for everything. Back then, you didn’t have any feelings for me, right?”
Alex held her arms and gently created some space between them. He looked up at her and his eyes were intense. It was scorching hot and piercing. “Abigail, I was trying to hold back from pulling you into my embrace this whole time… and yet, you are the one throwing yourself to me like this.”
He sighed as his fingers traced her collarbones. “You know how you easily rile me up, Abigail. You can drive me insane just by touching me, especially when we’re half n.a.k.e.d like this.” His deep voice was like hypnotic music as they lingered in her ears. She felt her face heat up, and not from the warmth of the water.
He looked up again, his deep eyes filled with restraint and desire. And then he sighed again, before he made her sit next to him, making sure there was a little bit of space between them.
He threw back his head and close his eyes. His hand searched hers and twined their fingers together. She waited patiently, knowing that the answer to her question was still forthcoming. And her patience was rewarded.
“Well… about that. I don’t really know. I just found myself doing above and beyond for you. Maybe I already knew that you were special since I let you go that night in that hotel.”
“S-special?” Abi asked, staring at his perfect features. He still didn’t open his eyes.
“I don’t know if that’s the right term to call it. All I know is that I couldn’t get you out of my head since then. And then, when I saw you talking with that man in the bar, my blood boiled in a way I never felt before. I almost went and killed him right then.”
Abi swallowed. Her grip on him tightened.
A smirk left his lips and he sighed again. “You don’t know how many times I have asked myself what the hell happened to me, because I have been becoming someone I don’t recognize anymore,” he chuckled shortly before he finally opened his eyes, looking up at the blue sky.
Abi’s eyes welled. She lifted her hand to touch him. Even though he just told her to be careful about touching him, she couldn’t stop herself. Hearing those words, what else could she feel at this moment? What else could she do but embrace him? She couldn’t stop herself from reaching out.
Alex froze the moment she wrapped her arms around him. He twitched, speechless. He remained still as she hugged him, shutting his eyes.
“You really don’t listen to me anymore, huh, little lamb.”
“It’s because you’re… you’re making me feel so emotional. I… I didn’t know you already felt something… for me even then. I… had no idea at all. I thought… I thought I was the only one who couldn’t stop thinking about you since the day I met you.”
Hellbound With You Chapter 196 – Chopping is not cooking
Alex suddenly stood up, held her by the waist and lifted her. He made her sit on the tiles, his palms holding on the edge of the pool with her in between his arms.
His eyes were glowing as he stared at her. The devil only knew how he wanted to kiss her; to pin her down right here and kiss every part of her body and… make her his… completely.
He started tracing the line of her cheek with his thumb, slowly, gently and Abi was easily lost in his sensual, mesmerizing stare.
Then he found his hand had cup her cheek, pulling her towards him before his lips finally captured hers. They were kissing again. And he was damn hard again. He always wondered why he just didn’t have any control when it came to this girl. He just couldn’t resist no matter how much he tried.
He always… always got lost when it came to her. And these feelings just wouldn’t stop growing, even gushing out of his chest now. He couldn’t contain it, he didn’t know how to even deal with it. Darn. He didn’t know that being a first timer in love was extremely challenging.
As their kiss became deeper, Alex felt her arms move around his neck, pulling him like she wanted more. Damn, he couldn’t take it anymore.
Grasping her chin, Alex deepened the kiss. The feelings, the sparks between them were too much, too good, excessive. And it seemed like this little fruit that he had been nurturing had finally really ripened up. Her kiss was so ripe now, so delicious, it was worthy to die for.
“Alex…” she murmured against his lips, completely intoxicated, while he gazed at her punch-drunk with her taste. Damn, he just wanted to keep kissing her forever.
But he pushed himself off her and stood beyond her reach. Abi was breathing hard, face flushed, and her eyes were hazy with desire. But before she could snap out of her daze, a robe was dr.a.p.ed around her.
She was surprised that Alex was already behind her.
“Let’s go. You will get dizzy if you soak yourself too much,” he said as he helped her up. He made her face him, helped her don her rob and dried her face with the towel, gently. “You’ve become a skilled kisser, Abigail.” He gave her a teasing smile.
But Abi just blinked at him. Why did he suddenly stop? She wanted the kiss to last longer… she wanted more…
She blushed with that thought, a little ashamed but then she thought that there was nothing wrong with it. She was a grown woman and he was the man she loved. Why should she feel ashamed of thinking that she wanted more? She determinedly pushed that feeling away.
Alex held her hand and led her inside. “Are you fully relaxed?” he asked, his tone sounding casual.
Abi started to focus on her body, and she really felt great, like her tensed muscles were all soothed. “Mm. I feel great,” she replied as they entered the room.
The house only had one bedroom and it was marvelous. It was square in shape with white walls and curtains, with a king sized bed in the middle of it. However, she didn’t really notice any of that because her eyes went straight to the view outside the glass wall and it was breathtaking.
It faced the other side of that gigantic plateau where there were a few more birch trees scattered around like guardians of the house.
“Get dressed first, Abigail.” Alex pulled her attention as he opened his suit case.
Abi quickly moved, opened her suit case as well and brought out her clothes. “Is there a bathroom here?” she asked and Alex led her towards the left side of the room which opened into a cosy bathroom. “Thanks,” she said before she dodged around him, darted into the room and closed the door.
When she came out, Alex was already dressed. He was wearing a grey woolen sweater and he looked so stunning, like a model inside a studio for a photoshoot.
“I’m guessing your hungry now. What do you want to eat?” he asked. Somehow, this good boy Alex was making her heart flutter harder than the scary Alex.
Abi smiled as she jumped on him, hugging him from his side. She felt like Alex was getting fluffier lately.
“Are you going to cook a food for me?” she asked, looking up at him with big eyes when Alex looked away as he rubbed the back of his nape.
“Well, I can chop up some avocados for you,” he told her and Abi chuckled, remembering how he had chopped the avocado like an onion. But then, she also remembered when they had baked her birthday cake and she started to imagine him inside the tiny kitchen with an apron on, and maybe a chef’s hat, running around cooking for her. The image made her chuckle.
“Chopping is not cooking, Alex.,” she said, teasing him.
“Then, let’s cook together. That’s one of your requests, no?”
Abi was surprised. Did she ever mention that to him before? She actually couldn’t remember! Maybe she did?
Without waiting for her response, Alex pulled her towards the kitchen.
They started cooking for dinner, with Alex doing the chopping, which he was so good at – luckily there were no avocados to chop this time! He chopped everything to perfection, like a machine, even though Abi told him he didn’t need to cut it so precisely.
As the man was focused on his task, Abi was busy watching him, resting her chin on her palm.
Alex glanced up at her and raised his brow, causing Abi to smile.
“I can’t believe I’m watching you, chopping vegetables and helping me cook.” Her face was bright and she looked incredibly happy.
Alex curled his lips between his teeth. “I can’t believe it as well, Abigail. So stop staring at me and pay attention to the stove. I don’t want a burnt dinner, thank you!” he replied casually and Abi suddenly reached out and pinched his cheek.
“You’re so cute when you’re like this.” She ignored his words but when Alex knotted his brows, Abi blinked and caressed the skin she just pinched, as well as the lines on his forehead. It looked like the word cute wasn’t a good compliment for this man. “There, there…” she muttered, trying to soften his face again.
Alex sighed and his eyes fell on the electric stove. “The pot is on fire, Abigail,” he said and Abi’s head snapped to the stove as she heard his pleasant laugh echo in the room.
“What a naïve little lamb.” He shook his head and Ábi puffed her cheeks as she looked at him.
The two spent their cooking time joyfully. Once they put everything on the table, Alex looked quite amazed, nodding like an old man in awe.
“Okay, time to dig in!” she declared as they sat across each other. Abi made Alex taste everything first and let him critique the taste.
“Not bad,” he muttered and then, as an afterthought, he added “it appears we are better cooks than most.”
Abi chuckled delightfully. “Correction. It’s supposed to be… the cook and her assistant are better than most.”
Hellbound With You Chapter 197 – Not yet
After their delightful dinner date, Abi was washing the dishes as Alex stood beside her. His tall gorgeous frame looked so out of place as he leaned there, drying the plates Abi was giving him, with a clean white towel.
“Are you just too happy? Or just laughing at me?” He leaned on her and whispered those words in her ear, causing Abi to lean away from his electrifying breath.
“I… I’m not laughing at you, okay? I’m just… well, can you blame me? It’s hard for me to believe that Alexander Qin is here drying plates like a good husband,” She explained, causing Alex to blink at her before he touched his chin.
Abi instantly regretted what she said but it was too late.
“Hmm… from good boy to good husband…” he murmured to himself before he smiled s.e.xily at her. “Not bad. I liked the sound of it.”
When Abi just gaped at him, utterly speechless, Alex’s pleasant laugh echoed once again, jolting Abi back to the present. He had laughed more tonight than she’d ever heard in all the time she had spent with him. It felt so nice. She felt like everything was alright as long as he was laughing like that. She wanted him to keep laughing like that forever.
Once they were done, Abi began to interview him.
“How’s it? You first time drying the dishes?” she asked and Alex shrugged.
“Not bad. I think it’s fun.”
“. . .” Oh, this man actually called it fun…
“What. Were you expecting me to complain?”
“No, well, yeah. Uhm… this is really alright with you, right?” Abi’s voice was a little hesitant.
Alex pinched her chin and leaned down. His glorious face hovered above hers. “I am the one who chose a place with no one else but us. And I absolutely didn’t bring you here to be my cook and cleaning lady. Even though I have no experience with this,
I already experienced being an assistant, as you called it, back at your house. So don’t even think that this bothers me. We will do everything together, got it?”
Abi blushed as she nodded.
“Good,” he let go of her chin and looked at his watch. “It’s about time.”
“Are we going to go somewhere?”
“Yes. Stay here, Abigail,” he told her as he made her sit on the chair. “Wait for me, okay?”
Alex returned, already dressed in his usual long dark coat. He was holding a thick pink jacket, the one he bought for her. She didn’t know why he chose pink though.
“Wear this.” He dr.a.p.ed it on her and Abi wore it. He was the one who zipped up the jacket on her. And then, he gave her a pair of yellow colored gloves.
While Abi was putting them on, Alex put on the last piece he brought with him, a yellow bonnet.
“Uhm… why yellow?”
“So it would match your yellow scarves.”
Alex stepped back as soon as Abi’s outfit was done. He looked at her and he seemed quite pleased.
“A peach with yellow icing, perfect!” he muttered. His perfect white teeth bit down on his lips. How could he say that? It was like she was a food mascot next to a god!
Before Abi could protest, he brought out something from his pocket. He smiled as he stepped closer. “I’ll have to blindfold you, Abigail. Close your eyes.”
Abi didn’t ask anymore and did as he said, obediently.
“But Alex. Aren’t you blindfolding me too soon? I still need to put on my boots.”
“Don’t worry about that,” was all he replied. He then squatted before her. “Hop on,” he said as he pulled her hand around his neck.
“Another one of your requests, right?”
“Hop on, Abigail. Quick!” He cut her off and Abi could only give in.
He lifted her up and she felt so nice.
“Wrap your hands around my neck, Abigail.” He ordered and she followed. He put her down once they were by the door. She felt him put his shoes on and then he asked her to lift her leg up.
She could tell he was squatting down. Oh god, was Alex putting on her boots for her?
The man looked extremely focused as he put on her boots. He was careful and gentle and Abi couldn’t explain this feeling she felt. She was so damn overwhelmed with everything that Alex had been doing for her since she woke up this morning. No, since last night.
After that, he squatted down again and carried her on his back and left the house.
Alex headed downwards until they reached the car. He put her in the passenger seat, telling her not to peek, before he ran around the car and hopped on the driver’s seat.
Abi somehow felt thrilled. What was he going to show her this time?
She felt him buckle her seatbelt. And then, the car started to move. Abi felt that the road the car was taking wasn’t the rough road they drove through. This was a little smoother but it didn’t feel like a concrete road.
The car was slow but it only moved for roughly five minutes. She could tell they weren’t that far from the house.
She felt Alex climb out of the car. She was unbuckling her seatbelt when her door opened.
“We’re here, Abigail.” His deep voice made her bite her lips as he helped her down. She lifted her hands, attempting to remove the blindfold but Alex stopped her.
“Not yet,” he whispered.
He held her hand, squeezing it and they walked a few steps away from the car. Abi’s heartbeat was loud in her ears. The anticipation was killing her.
Once he halted, Alex moved behind her and then, his hand started to remove her blindfold.
Hellbound With You Chapter 198 – Lights
As Abi slowly opened her eyes, her mouth slowly hung open at the sight before her.
There were bright dancing lights in the sky laid out in front her, like a precious painting. It was the aurora borealis!!!
The beautiful hues painted the sky like rippling curtains of yellow and green and all colours in between, as if they were hiding something behind their magical presence. The combination of the colours was so bold and exquisite that she couldn’t help but stare at them, not wanting to even blink in case it all suddenly just went away.
Wow! This was simply breathtaking! She had only ever seen photos of the northern lights and the real thing was incomparable to those images. Seeing this with her own eyes was something she never believed would happen.
She gaped in wonder, awestruck as Alex wrapped his arms around her waist from behind her.
“Do you like what you’re seeing?” he asked and Abi struggled to speak.
“It’s…” Beautiful was an understatement. She had no words to explain it. She was just mesmerized. “Breathtaking, Alex,” she finally said, not tearing her eyes off the sky.
Alex lightly leaned his chin on top of her head. “Well, wait for a bit longer,” he told her and after a couple of minutes, Abigail literally gasped.
She thought that what she saw a while ago was already the best thing she had even seen, but she was wrong. Completely wrong. That seemed to be just a free sample.
In the sky above them appeared giant, roiling waves in various shades of green. She felt like she was looking into a giant ocean with huge swirling waves of colour up in the sky.
She had always been a nature lover. She was impressed with the beauty that nature could offer but at this very moment, watching this stunning display from mother nature topped everything else she had ever seen. It was the most incredible thing, a once in a lifetime experience.
The whole sky turned into something almost like a disco dance floor.
She was utterly awestruck. The videos she watched before didn’t even come close to showing what the experience, the beauty, was really like. And the most incredible thing was that she was watching this with the person she loved the most, standing in his loving embrace.
The out of this world intense light show only lasted for roughly five minutes and the lights slowly became calmer. It was like the explosion had ended but the debris was still there, still breathtaking.
This moment, this sight, the warmth of the man hugging her would be something she would never forget for the rest of her life. She couldn’t think of any experiences she’d had that was more magical than watching the northern lights above her, warm in the arms of the man of her dreams.
“Alex…” Abi finally spoke, as she looked at him and her eyes welled up.
“You really read my notebook, didn’t you?” she asked him, looking so damn emotional.
Alex bumped his forehead on hers and answered. “That night when you left, I went inside your room and I accidentally knocked the bedside table. Your notebook fell.
I picked it up and saw the open page which had your notes on it. So I saw the remaining items on your list,” he confessed and Abi was about to cry when Alex kissed her lips. “Shh… no crying Abigail,” he whispered and kissed her deeper.
As they kissed, Abi felt her emotions slowly calm down. She thought this wish was one that she was never going to be able to fulfill. It seemed that the page that Alex saw was her original list. Seeing the aurora with her beloved was not included in the bucket list she had rewritten because she removed all the over the top requests like going abroad and everything like that,
because even though this was one of her greatest wish, she knew it was too much to ask. Yet, once again, he made it happen. In a way that it was far better than she had ever imagined.
“Thank you… thank you so much, Alex… this the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen in my life…” she told him against his lips and then she smiled, pulling away.
“Oh, so you’re saying these lights just beat me, huh,” he raised a brow, looking jealous and Abi immediately protested.
“No, I’m talking about things, Alex. If it’s a person, of course, you’re the most…”
“The most?” he waited.
“The most amazing, the most perfect, the most romantic and most gorgeous person on Earth… you are the bestest in everything, Alex!” she praised and Alex face visibly brightened, obviously pleased.
“Of course, I am,” he replied, looking proud of himself as he held her hand. “Now, come. Let’s sit there near the fire before you freeze.”
As they walked back, Abi’s attention was pulled towards what looked like a tent, standing on its own next to two outdoor chairs. Their car was parked a little farther.
“Wait here, Abigail,” he said and she saw his silhouette enter the tent.
Abi looked at the sky again and smiled. It was still so breathtaking. She just wanted to watch these lights all night with him.
But when Abi returned her gaze to where Alex just entered, her mouth dropped once more.
The tent was already lit up and it was another mind blowing scene. The tent was large and in the shape of an octagon. Steel bars held it up at each corner, meeting from the middle of the roof and separating out into the shape of an octagonal prism.
Each face of the octagon was made of clear glass and she could see the curtains tied back at each corner of the tent letting her see inside it. There was a soft glow of a lamp light which illuminated the intimate and cosy space. She saw a huge bed that lay in the middle,
taking up most of the space inside with plenty of warm looking blankets resting on top of it. It was the fanciest tent Abi had ever seen in her life!
Hellbound With You Chapter 199 – The devil only knows
Alex and Abi were sitting by the campfire. She was sitting between Alex’s legs, both of them wrapped in another thick blanket, looking at the warm fire before them and the lights above them.
This, too, was in her original list, camping with her beloved and spending the night watching the sky.
They were silent for a long while, just feeling each other’s warmth and enjoying this peaceful moment and then, they found themselves kissing again. Abi had lost count on how many times they kissed that day. And she was sure that it wasn’t just her but she felt that he too felt the same; this feeling that they couldn’t get enough of each other.
However, Alex was the first to pull away again, like he had put a certain timeframe of when it was the time to stop.
“Okay, time for you to sleep, little lamb,” he said as he stood.
“But… I still want to watch the northern lights.”
“You can watch them from inside the tent. And we can always sleep out here on the following nights.”
With that, Abi stood and obediently followed him inside.
After removing her thick coat, Abi snuggled under the thick furry white blanket. It was already warm. She watched Alex remove his long black coat.
He turned the lights off and lay next to her.
Abi immediately wrapped her arm around him. Ah, he was so warm… and his scent was just so Alex…
This feeling was just so wonderful. So wonderful she couldn’t ask for anything more.
They stared at the still dancing lights up in the sky until they faded and they both peacefully succ.u.mbed to the realms of dreams that night.
The sun was rising when Abi woke up. Alex was already awake, but still holding her.
They returned to the house and cooked their breakfast together. After that, they spent the day skiing, with Alex teaching the clumsy little lamb how to ski.
Abi was persistent in learning and she loved the way her gorgeous coach taught her so it didn’t take that long for her to manage to actually ski by herself.
“Ahh!! Alex!! I’m doing it! I’m awesome!!” she was yelling happily when suddenly, an arm caught her waist, stopping her momentum.
“I told you, you can’t go there. It’s too dangerous for you,” he scolded her and he led her back to what he called the safety zone.
Abi didn’t complain. She just playfully asked for a kiss which Alex gave without hesitation.
That night, the colorful aurora didn’t appear. It was still there but they were faint so they didn’t go to the camp that night.
After dinner, Abi had just come out of the hot spring and entered the house and walk towards the room. She saw Alex was already on the bed, leaning by the headboard. His hair was still damp and he was already dressed up in his comfortable clothes.
“Let me dry your hair, Alex,” she offered and the man smiled.
He sat on the edge of the bed as Abi knelt behind him. The sound of the blower echoed throughout the room and as Abi started to touch his hair, Alex closed his eyes. This felt really nice.
“Okay, your turn ” he said and took the blower from her. Abi was smiling widely.
Alex carefully dried Abi’s hair. He was focused but seemed to be enjoying himself when he noticed Abi staring far off the glass wall. She seemed lost in her thoughts.
The blower stopped before her hair was fully dried up.
“What are you thinking?” he whispered in her ear and Abi jolted. “Could it be that you already want to go home?”
Abi’s head snapped towards him.
“Of course not!” she immediately argued and Alex chuckled with her shocked reaction. He was teasing her again.
Suddenly, Abi climbed on him, straddled him and then pushed him down, pinning him on the bed.
Alex’s eyes widened as Abi puffed her cheeks. She bent down and was about to pinch his cheeks when she realized that she was still wearing her robe and that she was only wearing her underwear.
She flushed as she looked at him and she saw desire glimmer intensely in Alex’s eyes. But too soon, it disappeared and he helped himself up with her still straddling him.
“Be good, little lamb. Get off me so we can continue.”
“Kiss me, Alex,” she suddenly demanded. Alex was obviously surprised. She saw him swallow before he kissed her but his kiss was careful and shallow. She could tell it was filled with restraint.
Abi had felt this multiple times since the night he took her back to his house. He was always pulling away before the fire consumed them; even when his little monster was raging, he was ignoring it. She couldn’t help but feel something was off, that something just didn’t feel quite right and she didn’t like it.
As expected, Alex pulled away but all of a sudden, Abi captured his lips again. She kissed him hard and deep as Alex sat there, still like stone.
Abi was determined not to let go and her warm, skillful tongue became wild like never before. She was about to blow Alex’s mind. But he pulled away, cutting their kiss short. She felt his rock hard little monster under her and she could see l.u.s.t and desire in his eyes.
“Abi… let’s stop here,” he told her, his breathing ragged from holding himself back.
Abi bit her lips. “Why? I don’t understand… y-you’ve been pulling away since that night,” she uttered, her voice pained. “Alex… is it because –”
“No!” Alex’s voice was a little loud. He looked like he was slightly panicking, seeing her saddened face. “Listen, Abigail… I’m doing that not because I don’t want you. The devil only knows how much I want to… kiss every nook of your body and fu-, no, make love with you! I’m dying for it, Abigail, the entire time I’m with you.”
Abi swallowed. Surprised with his outburst.
“Then why? If you want me that badly, why are you pulling away?”
Alex sighed and closed his eyes. He bumped his head on hers, before he gazed into her eyes.
“It’s because I brought you here to grant your requests. I don’t want you to think that I brought you here so I could do that to you. I’m also being cautious because I’m not confident with myself when it comes to you. I don’t think I will be able to stop myself once I… once I taste you.
Hellbound With You Chapter 200 – Addict?
Alex’s gaze on her was packed with so much heat. He had been holding back, so damn much. In fact, he couldn’t believe that with all the overflowing desires he felt for this girl,
they still never made it to that point even now. He was utterly surprised fully knowing what kind of man he was when it came to s.e.x.u.a.l pleasures. Perhaps, he managed to hold it in this long because of this feeling called love? That must be it, because Alex honestly couldn’t think of any logical reason why he had survived his thirst for her for this long.
However, at this rate, if she pushed a little more, his already cracking resolve would completely disintegrate!
“I don’t understand,” she answered. “I came here with you because you asked me to come. I came here because you said this was your selfish request.
I know you said you would bring me here so you could grant my remaining requests and words aren’t enough for me to express how happy and overwhelmed I am with all the things you have showed me. But Alex, how about you? I… I want to make you happy as well, Alex…”
Abi saw his eyes widen a little. The truth was that Abi had already braced herself, mentally prepared herself for the possibility of them going all the way during this trip. She wasn’t going to lie. Even though that thing was not in her list, since that time Alex showed her that kind of pleasure,
she began to think more about it. She began to wonder how it would feel when she and Alex finally became one. And honestly, she wanted to experience it before their time was up. She wanted to give herself, all of her, to him.
“Abigail… you already make me happy. You don’t know how I feel right now, just having you right here next to me,” he responded and Abi pressed her lips tight, looking down.
“I just… I just don’t like seeing you holding yourself back so much, Alex,” she said softly, and Alex bit his lip. Was it already so obvious to her? He couldn’t believe that his actions bothered her like this. Well, what did he expect? Him, constantly pulling away from her heated kisses, this observant little lamb would surely think there was something off him with him!
Another quiet sigh left Alex’s mouth. He cupped her face and made her look at him. It seemed there was no other way out now than explaining it to her. “Abigail… I know you’re bothered by this. But I was really trying to hold back because I don’t want to ruin this trip with my selfish desires.”
Abi creased her brows, not comprehending what he said. Alex smiled as he poked the cute deep lines on her forehead. And then, he curled his lower lip between his teeth again.
His eyes were wary as he looked at her, like he was a little tensed at how she would react with what he was going to say. “You see, I have this… how should I put this…” he clucked his tongue, a little fear glimmered in his eyes. “I am crazy for s.e.x, Abigail. Once I taste it,
once won’t be enough and I can already tell how I’d be like once I… once I taste you. I’d be like a madman, wanting to have s.e.x with you every time I had the chance, every time you made me hard.
And you should know just gazing at your lips is enough to rile me up. Us, being here, alone together, I’d fu –, no I’d want to make love with you all day and night! That is my selfish desire.”
Alex ran his fingers through his hair. He knew what he was like. Those women he f.u.c.k.i.e.d before… as long as they could make him hard, he wouldn’t stop until he was done and by that point, those women would usually pass out from his vigor.
How much more crazy would he become if it was Abigail? This Abigail, who could make him hella hard with just one lick of her lips? The only woman who could make him hard many times in a day, without doing anything?
He bumped his forehead on hers. “Do I scare you, Abigail?” he asked, his voice stiff, worried.
Abi swallowed. She was shocked at Alex’s confession. She suddenly remembered that time when Kelly was in her house months ago. Kelly was reading a book and every now and again, she would squeal and then almost drool. When Abi asked her what was up with her,
she told Abi about the male lead of the book she called a ‘s.e.x god’. She explained that the book was a story of a girl who signed a contract with a rich s.e.x addict. Obviously lazy to talk about the details, she simply told her that at the end of the book, with the help of his girl, the man had successfully dealt with his addiction.
Abi didn’t know why but the first thing that came to her mind was that maybe, she might able to help him? No! That was only a novel! But all types of addiction could be cured, right? Wait, was Alex saying he was a s.e.x addict?
“A-are you a s.e.x addict?” she suddenly asked and Alex fell silent before a throaty chuckle left his mouth. He was so relieved the girl wasn’t actually scared, even knowing this thing about him.
“S.e.x addict, huh? I don’t know. I survived entire days I’m with you without s.e.x, so I think, it probably isn’t as severe as an addiction? I don’t know, I never thought about it, really.” But I can tell it would fall into addiction if it’s you…
Abi bit her lips, her brows knotted. She still honestly didn’t get it. He did it with other women before her and just the thought of it made her heart feel hurt, like he was rejecting her. Why couldn’t he do it with her?
“Is doing ‘it’ many times a day bad for me?” She didn’t realise that she had actually said those words out loud as the thought ran past her mind. She gasped when she realized it but it was too late. Alex was already looking at her in shock, his mouth slightly hanging open.
She looked away, utterly embarrassed.
Alex almost want to face palm himself. That was right! This girl had no idea at all, what s.e.x was like, what real s.e.x was like.
