Hellbound With You Chapter 241 – Fight
Alex dashed out of the room. Upon seeing Abi heading towards the back door, he chased her, not even glancing at the surprised onlookers who were shocked with the sudden turn of events.
The woman inside the room stepped out, wearing a little smirk on her face. “Looks like the rumors are true after all. Alexander has changed. Entirely,” she uttered. “I never believed those things that were whispered to my ear but it looks like they were not a myth.”
“He truly loves Abigail, so please don’t come here to create misunderstandings between them,” Kai told Leonor and the woman just smiled so elegantly, flashing her seductive smile to him.
“If I were you, Prince Kai, I would worry about Alexander rather than protecting their perfect relationship,” Leonor replied, making Kai’s brows furrow.
“Yes, she breathed life into him but soon she’ll also take back that life away from him. Have you ever thought about what will happen once the girl dies? Have you ever thought what Alex would do once he lost her?”
Kai almost shivered after hearing those words. He didn’t want to think about it. He avoided thinking about it and just listened to Alex when Alex told him that he wouldn’t let Abi die,
that everything would be alright. But maybe he was just being deliberately blind and naive and it seemed that Kai now actually thought that it would’ve been better if Alex and Abigail hadn’t met at all.
“Well, we’re leaving… I didn’t even manage to say hi to his wife. At least I finally saw her in person. She certainly looks one of a kind. It’s no wonder Alexander of all men fell for her.”
She smiled before she raised her hand and everyone that arrived with her, including Amanda followed her out of the mansion.
“Sigh… the perfect couple finally had their first fight. I hope Alex will be fine.” Xavier nonchalantly sat down as soon as the front door was closed.
Kai’s eyes fell towards the back door. He was worried because he knew that all this was new to Alex. He remembered how he dealt with his previous girlfriends. He didn’t even care and just walked away without saying a thing when his girlfriend’s sulked. He never even tried coaxing them.
Abigail was his wife and Kai knew she was the only one he ever loved and cared about but, would he be able to deal with this?
“Abigail…” Alex called out as he caught Abi’s hand. He gently pulled her in and made her look at him just to see her in tears.
Alex felt his heart squeeze. “What’s wrong? Why are you crying?” he asked, worried and panicked.
Abi finally realized that there were tears flowing from her eyes. She didn’t notice when they started. Her heart hurt so much. She knew she needed to listen to him,
that she must have misunderstood or maybe it was possible that the woman was forcing herself on him but that intimate image in her mind was impossible to ignore. Why did he let that woman touch him in the first place? Why did he let her move that close to him?
“Let go, Alex! Leave me alone!” she yanked her hand from him, causing Alex to widen his eyes. Abigail never acted like this before.
He knew she might be jealous but he never thought she would push him away. And unfortunately, Alex never dealt with anything like this before in his life. Or at least, he only knew to ignore these matters previously because he didn’t care.
“I am not going to leave you alone,” he told her, not letting go as Abi struggled to free her hand from his. “Abigail, c’mon… please, don’t exhaust yourself like this. Let’s go back inside. It looks like it might rain,” he told her, talking so gently.
“I don’t want to go back. You go back to that woman! I don’t care!” she yelled. Abi was shocked with herself. Why she was saying all this. She had never been this jealous before and she didn’t know how to deal with it. No, this wasn’t just jealousy, this wasn’t just about that woman,
it seemed that she had been fooling herself for so long. She had lied to herself and thought that she was fine being kept in the dark, that she was fine if Alex never opened up, that she was fine waiting for him to say something and that she was fine being the only one who knew nothing…
But no! She was not fine! All the pent up emotions were escalating to the point of bursting out. She wasn’t fine at all!
Alex froze for a moment and Abi took that opportunity to get away. She ran towards the wisteria tree and hid herself behind it while Alex just stood there, like he couldn’t believe what was happening. He didn’t get why she was pushing him away just because of what she saw.
Did she really think so little of him, did she have so little trust that she would instantly think that he was betraying her?
Anger and darkness began to bloom inside Alex. He didn’t know how to deal with this. No woman ever pushed him away the way Abigail just did. He never thought Abigail, his beloved wife, would look at him that way. Like she didn’t want to see him. Everything inside him began to sting with every breath he took.
Gritting his teeth, Alex tugged his hair and crouched down on the ground. What should he do? How should he deal with this?
He cursed within him. He was angry, so angry he wanted to kill someone.
Before he knew it, he dashed back towards the house, causing Kai and Xavier to instantly stand up.
“Alex, Leonor already left,” Kai told him, seeing how dark and dangerous he had become. This was bad…
Seeing him dash towards the front door, Kai and Xavier widened their eyes. Damn! Was he going to chase after them? Alex had definitely lost it!!!
Hellbound With You Chapter 242 – Stupid!
However, before Alex could reach the door, it opened and Zeke emerged. He just looked at Alex, expressionless as usual.
“Please stop him, Zeke! Leonor was here and Abi and Alex fought. I think he’s planning on going after them!” Xavier’s voice thundered.
“Move, Zeke,” Alex ordered, his voice hard and dangerous.
“So you’re going to chase after them? To what end? So you can sate your anger while you leave your wife here alone?” Zeke calmly asked, causing Alex to look at him, gnashing his teeth again. “You’re making things worse, Alex. All you have to do is talk to your wife.”
“She doesn’t want to see me! She pushed me away!”
“And? Will venting your anger on Leonor make her smile at you again?”
Alex clenched his fists. Knowing Abigail, what he was about to do would not be something that would make her smile.
Suddenly, Alex punched the walls and kicked things like madman. Blood started dripping down from his hands as he cursed. This was the only thing he could do to stop himself, to take this anger away.
The men just watched him and Zeke just leaned on the door.
And then, a loud thunder roared from above them. Alex immediately looked outside to see the heavy rain coming down hard from the grey skies. His eyes widened in terror.
“F*ck!” he cursed and he dashed back towards the back door.
Zeke finally moved from the door as the butler immediately called the maid to clean up the debris from what seemed like an earthquake aftermath.
“This is getting really serious… don’t you think? Just a small fight and Alex goes crazy,” Xavier commented and Kai, as always, defended Alex.
“It’s because he’s not used to this. I think once they get over this bump, Alex will know what to do next time. By the way, Zeke, I thought you’d be away until tomorrow.”
“Yes, I just came back to get something. I’m going back there immediately.”
Once Zeke was gone, Xavier who was lazily rolling on the couch spoke. “And what is that guy up to these days? I am pretty sure he’s dealing with something. What’s with all the secrecy?”
Kai felt the same. Zeke’s calmness felt a little disrupted and even though it was faint, Zeke could smell the scent of blood from him. Did he really head to country V yesterday? What was he hiding?
Back in the backyard, Alex immediately found Abigail behind the wisteria tree. She was sitting on the ground hugging her knees and crying.
He felt like a sharp object was cutting him from inside out when he saw her like that. This can’t be happening. She shouldn’t be hurting like this when her surgery was fast approaching.
The raindrop fell all around them and Alex immediately crouched down and gathered her in his arms, protecting her from the bombardment of the heavens. Even if she didn’t want to see him, he couldn’t let her get drenched and potentially become sick from this.
But Abi pushed him away again. “No!” she yelled as she sobbed.
Alex clenched his fists. Damn, this was hurting him… damn bad. He felt like he was being strangled. He had seen countless people despise him, hate him and curse him to death.
Not just strangers but everyone who was supposed to be his family. He was so used to getting that treatment that he didn’t care what people thought of him anymore. He didn’t care, he stopped caring altogether because life was easier that way. If he didn’t care,
he wouldn’t get hurt and no matter what anyone said, it couldn’t affect him. That was how he lived until she came, but now, he felt like he was being torn apart from her pushing him away like this, from her telling him she didn’t want to see him.
“Abigail… please come inside. It’s raining. You can punch me and kick me and do whatever you want to me, but do it inside.” His voice was low and pleading. Somehow, his raging demon was tamed. Maybe even his inner demons were as scared as him, scared that this would get worse and Abigail,
his Abigail would end up hating him too. He was terrified that this would worsen her situation. He would never forgive himself if this affected her health.
Alex hesitantly lifted his hands again as the rain drenched them. “Wife, please… what should I do? What do you want me to do? I don’t know what to do! Tell me… and I’ll do it. I’ll do anything!” Alex burst out, but still restrained his voice. His head was in chaos.
He just wanted her to let him take her inside. F*ck! He should’ve asked Zeke how to deal with this because he had no idea at all!
Finally, Abi slowly lifted her face. Her eyes still filled with sadness, a sight that rocked Alex’s entire being.
And then she moved. Thinking that his wife would finally embrace him, Alex stiffened but the embrace didn’t come. Instead, she pushed him onto the ground as she sat on him.
“You don’t know what to do? You don’t know? How could you say that?! Stupid! Stupid!” she yelled at him, sobbing as she punched his chest.
Abi wept as those words came out of her mouth. The rain had already drenched them and the sky seemed as angry as she was. “I hate it! I hate it! I hate that I’m the only one who doesn’t know anything about you! I hate it that those women know and I don’t! I hate it that I don’t know anything about you!
I thought I was okay but… but… I am not! It hurts! It hurts, right here.” Her hand went to her chest as she said those last words..
Hellbound With You Chapter 243 – Everything
Alex felt like the lighting had struck him directly. He never thought he had been hurting her for such a long time now by keeping her in the dark. He didn’t know. He stupidly believed her when she said she was fine with it.
“I’m sorry…” Alex mumbled, his voice raw with pain. He lifted his hand to touch her face but he halted midway. “I didn’t know that I’ve been hurting you. But believe me… I… I know I need to tell you everything.”
“But you didn’t!”
“I know… It’s very… I’m…” He was at a loss for words. He knew that at some point he would have to tell her but he had been putting it off because for the first time in his life, he was afraid of losing someone precious to him. “Because I’m scared,
\Abigail!” he said with anguish as he ran his hand roughly through his soaked hair. There. He said them out loud. Those words were no longer caged within the deepest, darkest part of his soul. He had revealed his weakness to her, confessed his innermost fear and made himself vulnerable.
He sat up, taking her with him and he held her shoulders. He looked at her, looking helpless, vulnerable. “I am scared that if I tell you, it will affect your health and that’s why I was planning to tell you after your surgery, Abigail. I just want you to be happy… I don’t want anything to disturb your mind and health at this critical moment.” His voice became weaker as he looked at her again with pleading eyes.
“Why would you think knowing your secret would affect me?” she asked between her sobs.
“Because it’s something that would terrify you… and I am worried.”
“Why? Will someone come after me again?”
“Yes. Look, I can protect you but I don’t want any trouble right now, Abigail. It’s just a few more days until your surgery. I want to give you a few more peaceful days and prepare you for the surgery. I’m sorry… please stop crying now. I will tell you whatever you want to know. I will tell you everything. Just not now.
Once your surgery is over… I promise, I will tell you, I will show you everything that you want to know and see,” he pleaded, touching her face. He was desperate.
Alex hoped she would understand but when she just stared at him and continued sobbing, Alex felt even more helpless. Should he really tell her now? What should he do? What if something happened because of this?
Before Alex could decide, Abi finally spoke.
“Fine. But you have to promise me you’ll tell me everything, and I mean everything, the moment I wake up from the surgery, you understand?!” she told him as she stood up and began to leave.
Alex was stunned. A light of hope shone in his eyes as he immediately followed her and hugged her from behind.
“I promise, Abigail. I will tell you. Everything,” he said, utterly glad that everything was going to be fine now.
But to his surprise, Abi pulled away from him again and shot him a look.
“I’m not done with you yet! I’m still mad at you,” she told him. Shocked, Alex could only let go of her. He thought they were fine now. Alex’s eyes flared in despair.
“Abigail, you just said –”
“I’m not talking about that! Stupid Alex!” she yelled as she covered her face with her hands. “Why did you let that woman touch you? Why did you let her get so close to you like that?! I don’t want you close to any woman! I don’t want you letting other women touch you.
You are mine! I am the only one who’s allowed to touch you!” she yelled, gritting her teeth as her tears mingled with the falling raindrops.
He couldn’t take it anymore, seeing her crying and hurting like this. He pulled her into his iron embrace, no longer letting her go. He stroked her hair and kissed her head, despite her struggles, until she gave in.
His heart was still in pain but he felt like a huge thorn had just been pulled out from his body. He was so glad she didn’t hate him. He was glad to hear the last two sentences she said.
He pulled away, looked at her face, and he began kissing her eyes, her tears. “I’m sorry…” he mumbled again. Even the words he never used before just kept flowing so naturally from his mouth. “Forgive me… I didn’t mean to hurt you. What happened a while ago was my mistake.
I didn’t know she was that close to me… I was lost in thought about the news she told me and before I knew it, she was right there,” he explained earnestly. “I’m sorry, it’s my fault. I promise,
no one will ever get that close to me again. I am yours alone, Abigail. I promise, you’ll be the only one who can touch me forever,” he swore and with just that, the ache in Abi’s eyes began to melt.
Those words he said pierced through her, making her body weak. Seeing Alex looking helpless was her weakness and seeing that look in his eyes made it impossible for Abi to stay mad at him for long. “R-really?”
“Yes, Abigail. My heart has been yours since the day we met. And it will be until my last breath.”
“Just your heart?”
A smile of great relief curved on Alex’s face. The anger in her eyes dissipated and Alex’s eyes gleamed. He surprisingly loved it that his wife wanted to monopolize him.
Damn, this wife of his had scared him too much! He really didn’t know what to do anymore if she hated him. No, he wouldn’t be able to take it if that happened. He didn’t care if everyone else in this world hated him and despised him, as long as she wasn’t one of them.
Looking at her with all the sincerity he could muster, Alex kissed her forehead as he responded.
“Nope, my mind, body and soul, too. All of me is already yours, Abigail.”
Hellbound With You Chapter 244 – Bad girl
The instant those words left Alex’s mouth, Abi’s heart melted as they gazed at each other. The rain continued falling and for some reason, this reminded them of their first kiss.
Alex’s eyes fell to her lips. He wanted to kiss her. But Abi beat him to it as her hands wrapped around his neck and her lips slammed on his. She kissed him wild like a raven,
wilder than she had ever been, that Alex was completely caught off guard. But the first thing that came to Alex’s mind were the words of celebration ‘Yes! We’re finally okay! We’re finally okay.’
Glad was an understatement to explain what he felt. It was like he finally woke up from sleep paralysis. He wondered when Abigail had become his everything. Right now,
he felt that his love for her was nowhere near that day he confessed to her. He was falling even deeper every day and he couldn’t believe that a fight made him realize how desperate he had become for her. It was no longer possible for him to live without her.
When their lips parted, they were gasping for air. Damn, his wife was so domineering and hot and what was with this heat between them right now? This was bad. He suddenly felt like doing it right there!
Suddenly, Abi pinned him down again. F*ck, he was too aroused! He couldn’t believe his body was acting like a leaf that she could push and pull anytime she wanted. He could see the domineering wildness in her eyes and Alex almost lost it.
As Abi was about to kiss him again, Alex stopped her with all the sanity he could muster.
“Wife please, let’s go inside. I can’t let you stay out here in the rain anymore,” he said and before Abi could respond, he gathered her up and dashed inside the house. Alex was damn so hard and his mind was full of want for her.
He didn’t even see the men who stared at them and just dashed up the stairs with her in his arms. The moment the door of their room closed, their lips immediately collided, as if they were so damn starved. They both were surprised with the intensity of their desire and at that moment, they embodied the famous saying; that make up s.e.x was to die for.
It didn’t take long before Abi was already n.a.k.e.d. Alex sat on the bed, with Abi straddling him. They looked into each other’s eyes. Their bodies were cold and slick from the rain but the sight of Abi looking like a mermaid siren was enough to make Alex go insane.
Abi gently cupped his face and her eyes turned slightly ashamed. “I think I’ve become a bad girl, Alex,” she suddenly said, making Alex’s eyes widen for a moment.
Alex’s lips curved up as he held her hand and kissed them and licked them as he looked up at her seductively through his dark thick lashes.
“Nope, you’re still my good girl, Abigail… but I love your bad girl side, too,” he uttered and Abi blushed.
Alex nodded without hesitation as he continued sucking her finger.
“Then… you won’t mind if I punish you?” she told him and Alex paused in utter surprise.
“You want to punish me?” Alex almost smirked but he restrained himself. What if she was talking about a different kind of punishment and not the naughty kind that he thought of?
“Yes. For making me cry.”
“May I know what kind of punishment you are talking about?”
She didn’t answer him. Instead she hopped off him and pulled him up off the bed. She then dragged him inside the bathroom, under the shower.
The heat between them was strong but her body started to feel the cold of the pouring rain seep into her bones so she decided that they needed to take a hot shower so that they wouldn’t get sick. But she also thought that this would be the perfect setting for his punishment.
She placed him in the middle of the shower and turned the water to full blast and the hot water instantly warmed up their bodies.
“We are going to have a shower together. But, you’re not allowed to touch me, understand?” she asked.
Alex could only swallow and nod at her. This punishment… he didn’t know if he would survive it. His desire skyrocketed as he watched Abi move closer to him until their n.a.k.e.d bodies touched each other.
Her arms roamed over his arms up to his shoulders, behind his neck and crawled up the back of his head. Alex clenched his fists, struggling to control his arms as they instinctively wanted to crush her body into his. But he restrained himself.
He kept his arms at his sides but they were not in a relaxed state. They were strained and tight as coiled springs, ready to pounce the moment she allowed it.
Abi pulled his head down so that she could kiss him and she did so passionately but suddenly, she let go and stepped back, removing the heat of her body from his.
Abigail didn’t know where she got her confidence from but at that moment, she no longer felt like her shy self. It was almost as if the moment she saw the woman touch her husband,
something inside her awakened. It was like she wanted to show him and make him remember that he was hers alone. She felt daring, she felt in control and it felt good.
Her once shy gaze had flipped into one of confidence and a little bit of mischief as she locked her eyes with his.
Seeing that confidence in her eyes and the playful smile on her lips, Alex almost succ.u.mbed to temptation. He had never seen this in Abigail before and it rocked his mind.
It turned him on in ways that he had never thought possible. The l.u.s.tful beast within him was screaming to be freed to devour this seductress before him. But Alex held on. By some miracle, he managed to keep himself still and rooted to his spot.
Hellbound With You Chapter 245 – So bad
Abi grabbed the soap and, still holding his gaze, started to wash herself. Soap suds trailed behind the soap as she lathered her whole body, starting from her neck to down to her flat stomach, covering her slick skin with soapy bubbles.
Alex was the first to break eye contact as his eyes hungrily followed her hands. He imagined that his hands were the ones roaming all over her, imagined the taste of her skin and his body turned rigid. He couldn’t believe this was the punishment Abigail came up with. This was indeed torturous.
After cleaning herself with the soap, it was Alex’s turn to be washed. With the soap in her hand, she started to wash him but this was very different to the way she had washed him that first time they had a shower together. Unlike the brisk, no nonsense scrubbing she had conducted previously, this time was much more measured, sensual and intimate.
It seemed she had taken his lesson to heart that day when he showed her how to ‘wash’ him properly. Now he didn’t know if he should regret showing her or if he should be rejoicing instead. He was torn between the land of pleasure and pain and she was doing this to him. Did she know what she was doing to him? Did she care?
Abigail’s hands trailed downwards and she knelt on the floor to ‘clean’ his thighs and legs. Her face, her lips, were so close to…
“Abigail… ” He just managed to tear her name out from his lips as his breathing became jagged and the swollen little monster twitched. It was itching to be inside her but he kept himself rooted on the same spot. He only managed to do it by thinking that he had made Abigail cry and that he deserved this bittersweet torment she was giving him.
Abi’s hands stilled when she heard him call out her name. She looked up and her lips accidentally brushed against his… Both of them were shocked. Alex almost cursed. He couldn’t believe Abi’s soft lips just touched his tip. Oh damn, this was driving him insane! Did she do that on purpose? Did… did his little lamb want to kiss him there?!
Alex bit his lips so hard to stop himself from telling her to lick him, suck him… there. He looked down again after throwing his head back and saw her staring at his raging monster, so close that he could feel her warm breath caressing it. Darn, he was going to burst.

“Wife… please… this is too much…” he uttered, clenching his fists so that he would not reach out and hold her head and guide it towards himself.
Abi looked up and saw the torture on her husband’s face and she was shocked that a smile curved on her lips. She liked it when he begged for her. She liked it when he became crazy for her. She liked it when he craved for her like that. She loved that she could get him to react like this.
It was shocking, these thoughts that ran through her mind right then. She never thought she would find pleasure in this. She had never imagined doing anything like this. It was as if her body had been possessed by a siren, and she was perhaps the one who was shocked the most.
Had she really become a bad girl? If not, then Why would she enjoy making her husband beg and go crazy for her? Why would she enjoy watching the expression of pleasurable pain on his face?
Abigail couldn’t find an answer but at that moment, she decided not to think about the why’s and how’s and just continue what she was doing. Truth was that Abi had browsed her phone that morning when she remembered what Alex told her last night. ‘What could she do to him next?’
She read an article while her husband was in the shower and she read something she found unbelievable. She was utterly embarrassed when she imagined it. She even shook her head and closed the article immediately. She thought she could never do something like that even though the article enunciated that it was something extremely pleasurable to men.
However, what happened today awakened something in her. Seeing his reaction the moment her lips accidentally brushed him there made her think that Alex must want it. But what riled her up the most was the thought that…’his past girlfriends must have done that to him’.
Abi felt the possessiveness she had never felt before bubble up to the surface. If those girls did that to him then why couldn’t she do it. She wanted to overwrite everything those other girls did to him.
She wanted to overwrite everything and make him totally forget about his past experiences and leave him with nothing but memories of only her. She wanted to drive him insane and make him feel so good that he would crave for no else but her.
Alex was her husband now. There was no more reason for her to get shy and feel embarrassed. She felt like she could do anything she wanted to him and make him go mad for her. Because he was hers and hers alone, forever.
Feeling much braver than ever, Abi poked her tongue and licked him, like a little kitten licking milk from a bowl. Alex groaned. She was looking up at him as she did that, watching his reaction.
She didn’t know how to do this because she stopped reading that article before it reached the topic of ‘how to do it’. All she remembered was the words ‘lick it like it’s the most delicious ice cream’. But her lack of knowledge didn’t stop her, not this time. She remembered how good it was when Alex kissed her most sensitive spot so this should have the same effect for him, right?
Thinking about the most delicious ice cream in the world, the soap fell to the floor as she wrapped her hand around his little big monster.
Alex’s knees almost collapsed from under him as he felt her squeeze him a little. His arms raised up to touch but she was halted by her whisper, “Uh-uh… no touching, remember?”
His hands flew towards his own head and he tugged his hair. Damn! He knew he deserved her punishment but Alex never thought that his wife would bloom to be such a bad, sweet girl and that combination turned him on to no end.
Before any more thoughts could form in his mind, he felt her sweet hot tongue start to lick him and his body tingled with pleasure. She was licking him like he was an ice cream cone and the sweet innocence combined with her daring confidence almost set him off like an atomic bomb. Fortunately, she backed off just in time to take a breath and the bomb cooled down by a fraction.
“Oh f*ck, Abi… you’re so bad… so bad…” he groaned.
Abi started licking him again as her hands moved up and down his length, combining her knowledge of using her hands and now her tongue on him. She licked him, from the bottom to the top and her quick little flicks on his tip caused him to shudder.
Abi noticed his reaction and from that point on, she concentrated on the tip of the little big monster because it seemed to her that this got a reaction from him.
What Abi was doing was definitely torture. This experience made sure that he would never make his wife mad again.
She continued the torment, her tongue and hands destroying his sanity as finally, the atomic bomb exploded with a bang
Hellbound With You Chapter 246 – Cursed
Alex was drying Abi’s hair after his punishment had been handed to him. That was such one hell of a kind experience for him and even Abi felt that their s.e.x life as husband and wife wouldn’t be as innocent as it once had been after tonight.
Once her hair was dry and the knots combed out, Alex gathered her and tucked her in the bed. A soft gentle kiss landed on her forehead.
“Are you okay? I hope you aren’t too exhausted,” he told her, his eyes loving and gentle.
She smiled and a soft blush crept up her cheeks. The bad girl was gone and his innocent little lamb was back again.
“I’m fine,” she assured him and Alex sat next to her.
“Should I read you the continuation of that story before you sleep?”
Abi looked at him with wide eyes. This was the first time he offered to read her a book. And yes, she almost forgot about that story.
“Yes hubby… please. I want to know the continuation of that book!” she exclaimed. She looked excited.
Looking at her face now, Alex’s eyes brimmed with gladness. He couldn’t believe this wife of his had just been crying just a while ago.
Abi then watched her husband as he stood up and got the book. He positioned her and made her lay on his lap as he stroked her hair.
“Okay, I’m going to start now.”
“The prince who had become the ruthless emperor of a vast empire started to sail around the world and conquered every kingdom in sight.
He was powerful and none could stand against him. However, in one of the biggest kingdoms he conquered, a queen, sentenced to death by him, told him , ‘you will never conquer the world.
You know why? The world is vast but you will grow old one day and die.’
The ruthless emperor mercilessly killed the queen. He became more of a demon than human. But what that queen told him started to bug him. ‘She was right,’
he thought. If he wanted to conquer the world, if he wanted to rule the world and make everyone submit to him, he must not die, he must not grow old; he must live forever.
Thus, the ruthless emperor halted his quest of conquering kingdoms. He searched the world to find the source of eternal life. In one of his trips, he caught a witch who told him about the last dragon rumored to be guarding the gates of hell. The witch told him that he had to defeat the dragon and drink its blood. That was the only way he could become an immortal.
The ruthless emperor didn’t hesitate. He went and found the dragon. His greed consumed him. He sacrificed hundreds of thousands of his own soldiers to defeat the dragon.
After years of battle, he succeeded. He was able to kill it with his own two hands and drink its blood.”
“Did he become immortal?” Abi asked when Alex paused. She didn’t know why but the story piqued her interest so much, even though she felt like Alex was omitting a lot of things from the book and was just summarizing it.
“I think you should sleep now.”
“Please, Alex… a little bit more… there’s no way I can sleep without knowing what happens next.”
Alex stared at her in silence but in the end, he couldn’t refuse.
“The witch was right. Drinking the blood of that dragon gave him immortal life. From that day on, the world trembled under his feet.
He conquered and killed without mercy until he sat on the throne as the king of the world.
He succeeded in becoming the most powerful being in the world and the powerful race where he once belonged to, became his slaves. The royal family, his own family who cast him away, became his servants. He had become the devil in human form and he became worse by the day.
But years began to pass by like days in his eyes. All the people he knew eventually died before his eyes and even the superior race that could live for hundreds of years died as well. He watched them leave the world and became one with the dust, forgotten by time.
He began to get bored and he began to get sick of it – living. He had done what he wanted to do and there was nothing left for him to do but watch everyone die.
After a thousand years, he left his throne. He disappeared and the kingdoms began to rule their own again. Because the ruthless king never came back.”
“What happened to him?”
“He spent his days looking for something meaningful to live for, something to make his long life bearable, but after searching for so long, he could not find it. So he started wanting to die. He tried many ways to kill himself. He jumped into the ocean to drown himself, he starved himself, set himself on fire, asked someone to cut him into pieces, and many more but he just couldn’t die.”
“He didn’t die even if they cut his head?”
“He didn’t. He would regenerate instantly.”
“What happened to him next?”
“He then realized that, far too late, that immortal life was a curse. That he was cursed. The ruthless emperor spent another thousands of years looking for ways to die. This was his last wish, to die and end his cursed life.”
Abi didn’t know why but she felt sympathetic towards the ruthless emperor.
“Did he find a way to die?”
“No… but one day, he ended up back in the Kingdom where he was born. The royal family was still ruled by the descendants of his powerful family. The superior creatures knew about him but to the common human, he was now just a myth.
The king of that kingdom and everyone else in it bowed to him. He decided to stay there without a purpose. He just wanted to die.
While he was there, the queen, gifted with the gift of sight, had a dream. She dreamt that one day, someone would be born who would be able to kill him.”
“Someone?” Abi asked in great curiosity but Alex had closed the book.
“It’s pretty late, my wife. Let’s stop here.”
“Shh… there’s still tomorrow.”
Alex kissed her lips to stop her from protesting and then he put the book on the table and turned the light off before he pulled her into his arms.
“Sleep now, Abigail. I can’t let you stay awake anymore,” he said and Abi no longer insisted.
However, she couldn’t sleep.
“It’s ironic, isn’t it.” Abi suddenly said in the darkness.
“The ruthless emperor’s story.”
“Why do you think it’s ironic?”
“Because we’re complete opposites. He is seeking death while I am seeking life.”
Hellbound With You Chapter 247 – What if
The sun was out and streaming across the bedroom when Alex woke up. His wife was still sleeping so he quietly left the bed and went to shower. As his water dripped down his body,
he couldn’t help but remember the last time he was in this shower and all the tantalising images that Abi had imprinted within his mind. The shower quickly turned from hot to cold to cool his body and his mind.
He dried off his body and wrapped a towel around his waist as he used another towel to dry his hair. He walked out of the bathroom and noticed that Abi was awake.
“Good morning,” he greeted her with a smile, still drying his hair as he walked half n.a.k.e.d before her, displaying his flawless body.
The still half-awake Abi looked at him, surprised and pleased. A sweet smile curved on her face as she greeted him back. “Good morning.”
Alex walked towards her and his palms pressed against the bed as he bent down and gave her a good morning peck on her cheek. “Did you have a good sleep?” he asked, surveying her face.
Abi rubbed her eyes a little before she looked at him, his towel was dr.a.p.ed around his neck and his hair still wet. She couldn’t believe a s.e.xy god was standing before her, half n.a.k.e.d, so early in the morning.
Reaching out for the towel, Abi dr.a.p.ed it on his head and continued to dry his hair. “I slept well,” she told him and Alex flashed his glorious smile, letting her do whatever she wanted to with him.
“Okay, go and get dressed,” Abi pulled away and Alex finally pulled himself up.
“Wife, why do I feel like you don’t want to see me n.a.k.e.d?” A smirk curved on his face and he bent down again, his nose nearly rubbing hers. “Is it because… I am arousing you just by standing before you half-n.a.k.e.d?”
Abi bit her lips. Her husband was teasing her but this time, Abi didn’t blush. Instead, she lifted her finger and touched his chin.
“Yes…” she told him, her gaze turned deadly s.e.xy. “I feel like you’re asking me to punish you again,” she added and Alex’s first reaction was a gulp. Oh god! What did his wife just say? The bad girl was showing up again!
Alex pulled away and cleared his throat. “Okay, I’ll go get changed.”
With just that, Alex turned and headed to the door as Abi silently chuckled. However, her smile instantly faded when she saw his back.
The couple spent another day just doing mundane things as they spent the day with each other. There were only three more days before Abi’s surgery so Alex was extra careful. He forbade anyone to visit the house, no matter who it was, unless they were a doctor. He was determined not to cause anymore disturbances or give any reason for Abi’s peace of mind to be disrupted.
But for some reason, Abi seemed to be lost in her thoughts since that morning and Alex couldn’t help but feel a little worried, thinking that something was a bit off with her.
The light faded and darkness enveloped the sky but Abi still seemed preoccupied. When Alex tried to get her attention, she would look at him and respond but then her mind would wander off again. She was silent and seemed to be in deep contemplation . Alex finally decided to ask what was going on but at that moment, a call disrupted him.
Abi’s phone was the one that rang.
“Hello?” He heard her greet the person on the other side of the phone and then, her face suddenly became pale.
Alex frowned and walked over to her.
“What’s wrong?” he asked, worried, because of the horror in her eyes.
“Betty… they said… that Little Betty was in critical condition and she may not make it this time,” she stuttered as the phone fell to the floor.
Alex cursed. He knew how important that child was to Abigail. Why did this news have to come now? Why couldn’t things stay peaceful even for just a few days?
Abi insisted on going to the hospital to visit the little girl. Alex had no choice but to let her go, not when she looked worried to death and devastated like that. Still, he worried about what this news could do to her health and mental state.
Alex piloted the helicopter with Abi beside him. He didn’t want to drive a car to avoid the possibility of getting into another car accident.
When they arrived at the hospital, they immediately rushed to Little Betty’s room but they weren’t allowed inside but she could see what was happening. There were many doctors inside and they were trying to revive her and the one thing that Abi could hear was the sound coming from the machine ; that single, long, beep indicating that the child’s heart wasn’t beating anymore.
Abi hugged Alex, tight and hard, as she buried her face on his chest. She couldn’t watch what was happening. Even though she knew this was coming, it still hurt. Little Betty was so young and this happening to her was too cruel.
“Alex… where is doctor Qin? He can save her, right?” Abi sobbed and trembled in Alex’s embrace.
That was right. Where was that guy? He said he’d be back after two days. He was supposed to be back by now.
Patting his wife’s back, Alex brought out his phone. He had to get Zeke. This child couldn’t die. That would be a lethal blow for Abigail! The child must not die!
Alex frantically dialed Zeke’s phone number but the call was not going through. His grip on the phone tightened and it almost cracked in his hands.
The world was not giving him what he wanted. Why? All he wanted was some peace for a few days but that seemed to be something the universe wouldn’t allow him to have. Damn. He was starting to get angry.
He could go and find that guy but he didn’t want to leave his wife even for a moment. However, if the child died…
As Alex was doing his best to contain himself and his rage, he saw a man in a doctor’s coat open the door and dash inside the room. Relief flooded Alex’s heart when he saw that the doctor was the man he had been trying to get hold off. With Zeke here, Little Betty’s chances of survival increased exponentially.
Hellbound With You Chapter 248 – The cause
“It’s okay, Abigail. Zeke’s here. He’s going inside the room,” Alex told his wife. Abi looked up and when she saw Ezekiel, and two nurses behind him carrying a chilly bin, enter the room, her sobs stopped and she wiped her tears away. “Come, let’s take a seat,” Alex said and he pulled Abi to a row of seats in the corridor.
Alex led her to the bench. The glass window was then covered with a curtain and most of the doctors stepped out of the room. Alex could already tell that Ezekiel asked everyone out except for the two people who were with him.
The doctors were silent as they left the room.
“Why are they leaving?” Abi asked.
“Zeke doesn’t like working with others but don’t worry, he’s better than all of those doctors who just left. It’s okay, everything will be fine.” Alex rested her head on his chest.
Time passed and one of the nurses with Zeke stepped out and approached them.
“Sir, Mr. Qin said that you can go home. He’s going to start the heart transplant and it will be a while before the procedure is finished. He said that you don’t need to wait and that you should get some rest. He said he will call you once he’s done.” The nurse told them before she bowed and immediately returned inside.
Abi gaped. “H-heart transplant? He found a donor?!” her eyes widened as she looked at her husband.
“Seems like it,” was Alex’s reply. His brows were pulled into a knot but after a while, his expression changed. “You heard what the nurse said, Abigail. We should go home and wait for the news there. The surgery will take hours.” Alex urged. “Don’t worry, she’ll be fine. We’ll come back as soon as the surgery’s over.”
“Can we stay in the hospital for tonight?”
Seeing that his wife was hesitant to leave, Alex could only agree. After all, this was better than them taking another trip early in the morning.
They stayed at her booked VVIP room that night. She looked really tired and drained so it didn’t take her long to fall asleep in Alex’s arms.
Abi woke up in a dark, dark place. This place again. Where was she? Why was she in this place again? There was white smoke swirling all around her. Choking her. She knew she was having that nightmare again. The blood, the dagger… and Alex. And it felt so real. She wanted to wake up but couldn’t.
Alex looked like he was in agony. He was in pain. He was gritting his teeth as if trying to push the pain away. He was saying something and he looked like he was begging as he walked towards her, his eyes fierce like a beast but there was a tear at the corner of his eye. Why? Why did he look so sad?
She shook her head as she stepped back. But then, blood started to spill before her. She screamed. She called Alex’s name. Everything turned dark.
“Abigail! Abigail!” Alex called out as he shook his wife. She was m.o.a.ning and her face was covered with sweat.
Abi finally opened her eyes. She was finally pulled out of that dark, dark place. Her body shivered from the remnants of her nightmare, still vivid in her mind. Alex? Are you okay? These were the first coherent thoughts that ran through her head as her brain was pulled into the land of reality again.
“What’s wrong? Are you okay?” When she saw Alex’s face, Abi hugged him tight, terrified. “Were you having a nightmare again?”
She nodded as she struggled to stabilize her breathing. He was okay! Alex was okay.
Alex’s jaws clenched as he rubbed her back, patiently waiting for her to calm down. He felt angry but he didn’t know what he was angry at, or whom. He couldn’t believe that his precious Abi couldn’t even get a peaceful night’s sleep. He heard her call out his name and that was what woke him up.
When she called out his name, she sounded pained, panicked and horrified. He knew then that he was in her nightmares. That he was somehow the cause of all this…
“Let me get you something to drink,” Alex said as he pulled away. He walked over the table and poured her a glass of water.
The nightmares were getting worse, getting longer and becoming more vivid. But it was very strange. She never used to have nightmares as long as she was sleeping next to Alex but this time, she had a nightmare even when he was with her.
But also, why did she have the same dream over and over again? She had never had two dreams that were the same, so what did all this mean? Was there something more to her dream than just a recurring nightmare? Was this some kind of premonition? What did it all mean?!
Abi sat up and drank the water, wiping away the layer of sweat on her forehead. Her heart had finally settled down and her breathing was almost back to normal. However, when she closed her eyes, the images were still there, so vivid and striking that she felt like she could never erase these images from her mind.
She put the glass on the side table and crawled into Alex’s arms. She wrapped her arms around him and he pulled her closer to him. Abi just let herself be wrapped up in Alex’s warmth and she felt the negative emotions start to flow out of her. Her body eventually relaxed as they stayed in that position for a while.
“Feeling better?” he asked, gently. Her face began to get some color again.
“Mm.” She nodded and her eyes caught the time on the clock. It was already dawn. That’s right, Betty! “How’s little Betty? How was the surgery?!” Abi exclaimed the moment she remembered where they were and why.
Alex looked at his phone and frowned when there were no missed calls or messages from Zeke.
However, as if Zeke had heard his thoughts, the phone rang. Alex immediately answered.
“How is she?”
Hellbound With You Chapter 249 – Little Betty
Abi was hugging her husband as she looked at Little Betty. The heart transplant went well but as with most things, time would tell if her body accepts the new heart or not.
However, Abi didn’t dwell on that fact and just rejoiced that a donor heart was found just in time. She was so happy for the little girl, so happy that she wasn’t taken away from them at such a tender age.
A miracle had finally happened right before her eyes and it filled Abi with so much hope and faith that she too would overcome her trials, that maybe she too would be blessed with her own miracle and get to live and spend her lifetime with Alex.
That day, Abi didn’t leave Little Betty’s side. The little girl had no family – well, in the sense of blood relations anyway.
She did have a new family with Abi and everyone at the orphanage and even though the teachers and other kids wanted to come say hi to her, other visitors weren’t allowed to see the little girl yet. Abi was the only one who could accompany the little girl.
Alex didn’t insist on bringing her home from that day onwards. He thought that it was better for them to stay at the hospital now as it was only two more days before the surgery. Besides, Alex, for some reason, felt an unpleasant unease in the pit of his stomach. He had a feeling that danger might be waiting for them again if he took Abi home which added some weight on his decision to stay there.
Another reason was so that Abi wouldn’t worry about the little girl if she was away from her. This way, Abi could check on the girl whenever she wanted and that meant that she would be calm rather than be anxious, which would help her for her own surgery to come.
Inside Zeke’s office, Alex was leaning by the wall as he looked outside the window. He didn’t ask where and how Zeke found a heart donor. He didn’t ask if that was the reason why he went back to Country V.
“By the way, Alex, why don’t you and Abigail adopt the girl?” Zeke spoke in a nonchalant tone, as if he just asked Alex if he wanted a drink and not the bombshell he just dropped.
“Shouldn’t you be the one who should do that? You were the one who saved her after all,” Alex replied, glancing at Zeke with curiosity. He still didn’t understand why Zeke was doing all this for the little girl. He never cared about another human being, let alone a weak, dying little girl.
The thought that the little girl had managed to melt Zeke’s heart was the only answer Alex could think of.
Zeke was quiet for a while and a slight smile curved on his lips. “You want to entrust your wife’s favorite little sister to me?” his voice was suddenly sarcastic.
Alex sighed. His theory was that Zeke was doing this for the sake of his goal or maybe he had another plan which Alex didn’t really care about anymore. Whatever his motives, Alex just let him be. He didn’t want to bother trying to decipher Zeke’s thoughts or plans anymore because he had bigger things to think about.
His mind was too occupied with the upcoming surgery and the reason behind his unease so he just turned around and left, not giving Zeke an answer.
That evening, Alex and Abi were cuddling on the bed, preparing to go to sleep. Abi snuggled closer to him, wrapping his arm around her waist. She was about to say goodnight to her husband but she stopped when she noticed his expression.
It was Alex’s turn to look lost in his thoughts and he was the one who was now unusually quiet.
“Are you okay, Alex?” Abi asked him as she turned to face him.
Alex’s eyes widened a little. “I’m fine. Why do you ask?”
“You just seem very quiet, that’s all. What are you thinking about?”
Alex saw her curious expression and he smiled. He turned to face her and then stared intently in her eyes. “Would you like for us to adopt little Betty?” asked Alex seriously.
Abi blinked at him silently before her mouth formed a round ‘O’ in surprise. She did not see this coming at all! How did Alex even come up with this idea?
“Y-you want us to adopt her?!” she exclaimed, still in disbelief. Abi had been thinking about doing this even before she met Alex. The little girl had a special place in Abi’s heart and she desperately wanted to do this but with her condition and the fact that she was single were big obstacles.
There was no way she would have been able to adopt Little Betty under those circ.u.mstances. Maybe, even with Alex, they still may not be able to adopt the little girl because Abi’s future was still very uncertain.
At the orphanage, everyday there was a possibility that a couple could come in and want to adopt one of the children. Abi had seen many people come along but once they found out that Little Betty had a heart condition, these people would ultimately not consider adopting her.
It tore Abi’s heart every time she saw the hope in the little girl’s eyes, only to end up in disappointment. Part of her hoped that the little girl would find a couple worthy of loving her and giving her everything she wanted and needed in this world. Abi very much wanted to be that person for Little Betty so a small part of her also hoped that no one would take Little Betty away from her.
She knew it was selfish of her to hope for this, especially because she knew her time was running out, but she also knew that if a good couple wanted to adopt the little girl, she wouldn’t stand in their way because ultimately, she just wanted to see Little Betty happy. She deserved that much.
When Little Betty’s heart problem became worse, the thought of adopting her had been replaced by worry and the thought of how to help her and make her happy. But now that she was safe, would they send her back to the orphanage again?
Hellbound With You Chapter 250 – Last day
“If you want to,” Alex pinched her cheek slightly.
Abi was so happy at Alex’s suggestion but she felt like this wasn’t the right time to do this. After all, she still had her surgery to go through and the future is still unknown.
“Thank you, Alex. This is very thoughtful of you…” she kissed him before she pulled away and looked at him. “I would like to but I think we should wait until after the surgery to talk about it more.”
“I see… whatever you want, wife.”
Abi smiled and kissed him again. “Thank you, I love you,” she whispered and Alex responded to her kiss. Without knowing how it happened, Abi somehow ended up on top of him, kissing him passionately.
Alex really wanted to pin her down but he was determined to keep trying to tame himself and not let his beast get out of control. At least, just for now, until his wife was fully healed. His Abi would overcome her condition and that they would live a long happy life together.
Abi trailed kisses from his lips down to his nape as she unbuttoned his shirt. The bad girl came out to play. She was going to eat him whole again and Alex was dying for it.
Thus, that night, the bad girl Abi dominated her husband, as Alex became satisfied being under her for three nights in a row.
Abi and Alex had a pleasant breakfast before Abi’s family arrived and they all went to Little Betty’s room.
Today was the last day. Abi’s surgery was going to start early in the morning the next day.
Alex decided to give her the day to be with her family so he went to look for Zeke. The two men chatted for a while and then Alex left to make sure everything was prepared for the next day. He checked on the nurses that would be accompanying Zeke during the procedure, and everyone else who was going to be present in the surgery room.
Alex wouldn’t forgive any mistakes and he made that known. He was not going to let anything go wrong.
Despite Zeke telling him that he had nothing to worry about, that his team was the best, the equipment was top notch and he himself was performing the surgery, Alex still insisted. He was being extra careful, almost desperate, because until now, his unease had not gone away.
That afternoon, Alex went back to Little Betty’s room. He already missed his wife even though it had only been a few hours since he left her.
He smiled at Abi’s family, no, his family now as well, when he entered the room. However, his heart began to hammer when he couldn’t see Abigail inside.
“Where’s Abigail?” he asked and Andrew immediately frowned.
“Didn’t you call her? She went out of this room almost an hour ago,” Andrew said and Alex immediately felt his throat tighten, as if a strong hand was strangling him. His pulse began to thump wildly and his blood boiled.
“What’s wrong? She’s not with you? Where is she then?” Andrew’s face began to worry as he stepped closer to Alex.
But before Andrew could reach him, Alex suddenly dashed out of the room. He cursed. His aura was becoming dark as worry and panic set in. He rushed towards their room, calling out her name.
He looked everywhere but she wasn’t there, not in the bathroom or anywhere else.
He called Zeke and told him Abi was missing. Zeke immediately ordered to lock down the hospital as Alex rushed to the rooftop, hoping that his wife was there, just getting some fresh air.
The door to the rooftop was opened with a loud thud. He looked around but he couldn’t see her. He walked to the spot where he proposed to her. It was empty. He walked all the way around the rooftop but there was nobody around.
“Abigail! Where are you?!” he called out. No one answered him. F*ck! He was starting to tremble. This couldn’t be happening!!
“Abigail!!!” he yelled, calling out. He clenched his fists so tight that blood started to drip from his hand.
He dashed down again. Zeke’s men started the search. It was happening again. The same thing that happened in the palace. Abigail had disappeared again.
They went to check the CCTV only to find that the CCTv’s hadn’t been recording anything in the last hour. It appeared that someone had tampered with the CCTV’s.

Kai arrived to help search for her but they couldn’t find her inside the hospital.
Where the hell was she?! Alex pulled out his phone and tried ringing her but he couldn’t reach her.
They were on extra alert. Even the poker faced Zeke looked more serious than ever. They all knew that this was a disaster and Alex was like a ticking time bomb.
The search continued. Zeke didn’t bother informing the authorities. They knew this wasn’t a simple kidnapping. This was something only they would know how to deal with.
Alex didn’t say another word and when he confirmed that Abigail wasn’t at the hospital, he too left and disappeared without a word.
“Kai, go back to the kingdom. Do whatever you can and use anything to find her,” Zeke ordered Kai.
“Leave him to me. I’ll find him.”
With that, everyone also dispersed.
Daylight started to fade and the long arms of darkness started to wrap around them. The sky looked gloomy and dark, ominous even, almost creepy. And still, there was no sign of Abi.
Alex was in his car, drenched in blood. He had checked all the places in this city that he knew his enemies were hiding. But she wasn’t there. She was nowhere to be found.
His eyes blazing with hellfire. Where are you, Abigail?!
He felt like he had checked the whole damn city but he came up with nothing! Where on Earth could she be?!
