Hellbound With You Chapter 431 – Underneath
As the monstrous building came into view, everyone had to blink twice to make sure they weren’t seeing things. They felt like a mystical, ancient beast suddenly appeared before them and they were all dumbstruck. They all stared at the ancient structure in awe.
The Ziggurat was in the shape of pyramid but instead the sides being smooth from the bottom to the top, this was a layered, rectangular building, something akin to lego blocks where a large rectangular piece made up the
base and then smaller rectangular pieces placed on top. The stop of the structure wasn’t pointed like a pyramid, it had a small dome which sat on top of a small, square building.
On one face of the structure was the entrance with three stairways leading up to it, two stairways hugging the wall and one stairway in front of it.
Alex was standing on top of the structure and in the next moment, Abi saw him jump down to the ground. Once the elite vampires and witches felt that the small quake was over and that the threat of the avalanche was no
more, they moved to get closer to Alex and the Ziggurat. Riev went out there first to make sure it was safe before Raven, still holding on to Abigail, and the others followed.
They stopped about fifty meters away from Alex. They could see that Alex’s eyes were still emitting its golden shade so they didn’t dare get too close to him. The mission was not over yet, it seemed.
The world around them had become quiet again. Nothing could be heard apart from their breathing.
Abigail stepped away from Raven the moment they landed and she drew closer to Alicia. She could tell that Alex was not back to normal yet so she, too, didn’t approach him.
“Alicia, did you know that something like this was here?” she asked. She wondered if Alicia had seen this structure before in her crystal ball.
Alicia just shook her head. She couldn’t recall seeing it. But then again, she wasn’t the witch queen yet so she didn’t have access to all the previous witch queens’ memories.
The group fell quiet after that and all eyes fell back towards Alex again.
After staring at the structure for a while, Alex finally moved. He glanced at them and looked at Abigail, as if to make sure she was okay, before he began to approach the ancient structure.
He walked by the structure’s outer wall, his hand dragging on the wall. He looked like he knew exactly where he was going as he carefully walked around its perimeter.
When Alicia had shown them the places where their enemies were possibly hiding, Alex had looked at one area in particular. When she had pointed to this place on the map,
something seemed to trigger within his mind, as if this area had some significance. At the time, he couldn’t remember what that was or what it meant. When he was with Abigail last night, a very, very old memory surfaced and he remembered why this place seemed so familiar. It was because of this Ziggurat.
His mind played a few images of this place and he saw this place in its prime. Countless years ago, before he became an immortal, he had somehow stumbled upon this place. He couldn’t remember how or why he had
come to this place – seeing as how it had been a few thousand years ago – but he recalled some of the details of this structure like its location and its entrance.
He recalled that underneath this structure lay a large cave-like space inside – ideal for anyone to use to create those creatures in secret, hidden from the eyes of the world.
This was why he was so sure that he had the right location and last night’s expedition had confirmed it.
The elite vampires and witches saw that there was an entrance atop the stairs which led to a few more flights of stairs heading to the dome at the very top. It looked like an entrance to a temple. But Alex didn’t seem to have
any intention of heading up there. They looked at each other in bewilderment. What was Alex doing? Was he scoping the perimeter for any sign of trouble?
They kept watching him as he kept walking along the wall. He didn’t seem to be watching out for incoming enemies. He seemed to be searching for something because with every step he took, he would brush his hand against the wall and pat the wall at several different places. They didn’t know how long they watched him do this for but finally, they saw him halt.
They watched him push the wall and a loud groaning sound echoed as a large part of the wall opened.
Everyone gasped in surprise but they didn’t have time to wonder as Alex beckoned the group to come closer. Everyone immediately followed his order and made their way towards the opening.
“Be prepared. We’re going in,” Alex told everyone. His voice was cold and emotionless.
All the elite vampires nodded, muscles becoming tense, ready to jump into action at any moment. The witches looked at each other and nodded as well, as if they were communicating telepathically.
Without another word, Alex led the way into the dark tunnel. Everyone was alert, tuning in to the slightest movements as they walked further into the tunnel. The door slowly closed behind them, leaving them in darkness.
The vampires had the innate ability to see in the dark so they weren’t hindered by the darkness. However, everyone else didn’t have that skill. As Abi reached out her hands in front of her to stop banging into someone,
she heard Alicia chant a small spell and just like that, Abigail, along with other witches, were able to see in the dark, although, there was really not much to see except for the blank, brown walls that surrounded them.
Hellbound With You Chapter 432 – Above
The tunnel was silent. Everybody was on edge, clearly expecting another horde of hybrids to rush at them but it didn’t happen. Even so, they didn’t let down their guard, especially because they were making their way into the
enemy’s lair. The witches did what they were good at and buffed the elite vampires, getting them ready for whatever they were going to face. They also cast a few spells of protection on Abigail.
Alex led them deeper and deeper into the Ziggurat until they saw light up ahead, signifying the end of the tunnel. They kept going and once they reached the open space at the end of the tunnel, everyone stared in awe at what was before them, except for Alex and Abigail.
Alex had already lived so long that nothing really surprised him in this life anymore except for his wife and as for Abigail, it was because this was the place she had seen in her latest dream, the one with the woman in black.
Alex stood before the group, as if to shield them for a surprise attack that didn’t come. When his gaze roamed the large area down below, he found the witch queen. She was shackled between them and the throne, encased in what looked like an ice crystal. It looked like the witch queen had cocooned herself.
When Alicia saw her, she gasped and her hand went to cover her mouth. She trembled slightly as the sight of her queen like that. Alicia knew that this was the state that queens put themselves in if they didn’t want their enemies to torture or extract information from them. That was a spell they used to protect their power and knowledge
when they were held captive. It was a first tier spell and it was only to be used as a last resort because the price of that spell was death. Once she broke out of that cocoon, she would die. So she was right after all. Her queen was dying. This was the reason why she had been getting the queen’s powers slowly over time.
But even with the truth before her, Alicia still found it hard to believe that her queen was in this state! How? Why? Their queen was the most powerful witch in the land so how did it come to this? Just who was this creature that managed to firstly, capture her and secondly, to drive her to do this?
Alicia looked around but the place was empty, except for her queen. She then pushed her way to the front and was about to jump down to go to her queen but an arm held her back.
“I’m going to my queen,” Alicia replied with tears in her eyes. “I want to take her away from here. I want to take her back to where she belongs so she can she can die with her people” Alicia trailed off, her voice a mere whisper as she said those last words.
Riev didn’t know what to do because Alicia started to break down. Thankfully, Abigail moved towards Alicia and gave her a hug, freeing Riev from his predicament.
“It’s okay, Alicia. We will get her. I promise. We will take her back so don’t worry. I promise we won’t leave her,” Abi comforted.
Abi looked around the cave again as she held Alicia. Something felt off. She tried to recall the details from her dream to see if she could find why something felt odd. She remembered that the woman wearing the black veil had sat on that throne. Where was she? And where was the legion of hybrid vampires that she had seen in her dream?
Abi was starting to feel apprehensive because she couldn’t shake this feeling of dread that she felt in her bones. Her eyes were focused on Alex and her heart was beating so wild that she couldn’t speak anymore.
“Abi, what’s wrong?” Alicia said when she felt Abigail’s heartbeat accelerate, pulling away from Abigail’s embrace.
“Something isn’t right” Abigail trailed off as she looked up at the vast, pitch dark ceiling. Wait a minute! This room was fully lit up in dream. The light should’ve reached the ceiling but it looked like a pitch dark sky. Why? Why was this different?
Abigail closed her eyes and she concentrated. The moment she heard their heartbeats, she called out to Alex. “Alex, they are up there!”
However, it was too late because by the time her words came out, Alexander was already standing by the witch queen, ready to take her from this place.
As the last word came out of her lips, the hybrids jumped down from the ceiling like falling spiders from above.
They fell on Alex like a dark, heavy net, covering him and the witch queen with their bodies. Many of the hybrids went for them as well and the battle ensued.
Abigail felt scared and she berated herself.
She could only look on in horror as the scene in her dream became reality. The horde of hybrids was here.
Abi gripped the sword in her hand but what should she do? There were too many of them. She looked down at Alex who was fighting the mob that surrounded him with his bare hands.
“Why is Alex not using his power to control the wind?” Abi exclaimed.
“He can’t. I think this is one of the reasons why the enemy chose this place. There is very little draft in this enclosed space and even if it were possible, if Alex uses too much strength, he could very well destroy the entire
structure and bury us along with it. Plus, my queen is down there too. He would break her cocoon and kill her if he did that,” Alicia explained.
Everything that Alicia said made sense but it didn’t make her feel any better. Because she was here, Alex was forced to control his strength so that he didn’t destroy the building. They were at a disadvantage but that didn’t mean that Alex would be defeated, right?
Hellbound With You Chapter 433 – Until The End
“Wouldn’t it better if you take me outside and just let Alex destroy this place?”
“No. We can’t do that. Not until we find out the answer to our questions. Either we capture the person who is behind this or we need to find a way to save our queen. She will definitely know.”
This place wasn’t favorable for them. There was no wind, no trees and very little space. The men were doing their best to fend off the hybrids from entering the tunnel and Alex was also fighting them down below.
He punched and kicked and clawed and stabbed them but when one went down, another one came to take its place. It was never ending. Abigail saw this and she turned to Alicia.
“I think we need to give the sword to him, Alicia!” said Abi, panicking. But Alicia could no longer pay attention to her. The hybrids’ number seemed to have tripled and it looked like they now focused their attention on them instead of Alex.
“Shit! It’s hard to fight! They’re trying to push us back into the tunnel” she heard one of the elite vampire curse and she realized he was right. They were being pushed back and it was getting more cramped.
“Damn it! This is bad. We have to relocate!!” Raven said and he forced his way towards Abigail. However, Alex suddenly landed in front of Abi.
He was smiling at her then his smile faded as he hugged her and planted a quick kiss on her forehead. His body was cold and his eyes looked like they were burning like a golden sun. “I’m sorry, Abigail. I don’t want to show you this but I have no choice,” he whispered as he pulled the sword from its scabbard.
The next moment, he was gone.
He appeared in front of the elite vampires and with one slash, a number of bodies rolled on the floor, clearing the cramped spot. The vampires could finally move again and fight with ease.
Alex continued taking down countless vampires, swinging his sword and fighting like a human. But he wasn’t human. He had his unrivalled speed and strength. The glow in his eyes was so bright that he looked so different. He had totally switched from a vampire to a demon in human form.
He had become like a dark tornado himself and the atmosphere that was already tense and filled with bloodlust began to be enveloped with the kind of darkness that was enough to make anyone tremble in fear. It was almost
like they had been transported to the underworld. Everyone knew, including Abi, that this darkness, this hellish atmosphere was created by Alex.
The elite vampires and witches couldn’t help but freeze in awe and fear because it was like a beast was finally let loose. He wasn’t like his mindless rampaging self. He was aware of everything that was happening. But what
made him so much more terrifying was the fact that he was smiling, as if he was truly enjoying his killing spree.
The number of the hybrid creatures were decreasing because of Alex’s one-man slaughter band. Abi could only watch silently. She didn’t know what to feel as she watched Alex swinging his sword like a terrifying demon.
Even if she knew Alex had already killed countless lives before, seeing him doing it again now with her own two eyes made Abi’s heart go numb. She knew this was inevitable and that these creatures were dangerous. They
could be used to harm humans next if they were allowed to be let loose. They were creatures that weren’t supposed to exist.
Still, Abi wished that Alex didn’t need to do this anymore. He looked so different again, as if she was seeing another Alexander, the Alexander that had been long forgotten. He was like a living, breathing darkness. His eyes were merciless, ruthless even. There was no sign of her doting husband at all. This sight finally made Abi realize
the extent of the hellish world that Alex had told her about. This was his real hell, the hell he didn’t want her to see, the hell she vowed she would embrace for her to be able to stay beside him.
She felt like she was a statue, just watching her husband and her comrades fighting with all their might. She could see Alicia joining in the fight as well, supporting the others before coming back to her again. Some of the witches protecting her had fallen.
This battle overwhelmed her. Her heart was trembling. She thought she was prepared enough after everything that she saw but she was wrong. This battle had shocked her entire being. So this was why Alex told her not to look. But then again, she couldn’t look away.
Abi didn’t have the heart to do that. She wouldn’t blink even an eye. She would watch Alex, everyone, everything until the end. She wouldn’t look away even if her spirit broke.
The seemingly endless battle seemed to finally reach its conclusion. The hybrids were finally dwindling in number. Alex seemed to have suffered few cuts, judging from the blood stains and cuts on his clothes. He stood there, his sword still dripping with dark blood.
Most of the casualties from their side were the witches Alicia had called in. The scene was like something from a horror movie, grim, bloody and reeked of death. It happened too fast for Abi but she knew that to everyone who was fighting, time probably felt slow.
She clenched her fists and returned her gaze to Alex. She didn’t have the luxury to feel relieved because despite seeing that the hybrids were running out, the unease and fear in her heart didn’t subside even a little.
Alex walked up the stairs, effortlessly slashing the few hybrids that were jumping on him.
He walked slowly towards the shackled witch queen when a villainous laugh of a woman echoed. The woman in black came out from behind the throne.
Abi froze in place. That was the woman from her dream, the one who called for her to come.
“Hahaha as expected of you, Alexander,” her voice echoed as she elegantly sat on the throne leisurely, as if a battle hadn’t just happened.
Her eyes then shot straight to Abigail. “And Abigail I’ve been waiting for you.”
Hellbound With You Chapter 434 – Masked
Abi felt her body freeze the moment the woman in black looked at her. The woman’s gaze was piercing, as if she wanted to see into her mind. Who was this woman? How did she know who she was? What did she want from her?
All these questions went round and round in Abigail’s head. She didn’t know why this woman would know someone as insignificant as her. Apart from being Alex’s wife, there was really nothing out of the ordinary in her
life. Or maybe that was how the woman came to know of her – as the woman who managed to tie down the great Alexander.
An even darker aura cloaked Alex’s body the moment he heard the woman in black mention his wife’s name. His eyes narrowed as he looked at the woman. With just one look, Alex could tell that she wasn’t a vampire, nor a
witch. He then recalled what Abigail had told him last night about her dream – about a woman wearing a black veil. So this was the woman calling for his Abigail? Why? Who was she?
The woman then gazed down at Alex again after her attention had been on Abigail for a while. “It’s been a long time Alexander,” she suddenly said in a lazy drawl.
Why did she talk like she and Alex had met before, as if she knew Alex personally? Abigail’s eyes went to Alex’s face to see what his reaction would be. Did he know this woman?
Abigail didn’t realise that she had been holding her breath as she searched Alex’s face. Abigail had thought that the woman was quite classically beautiful when she saw her in her dream, Even though her face was covered by
the veil, Abi could tell that she was elegant and beautiful and composed just by the way she carried herself. As Abi searchd Alex’s face, she felt immense relief when she saw that Alex had no recollection of this woman. His eyes were questioning, as if he was asking the same questions she was about this woman’s identity.
Alex didn’t respond. His fiery eyes just glared at the woman and the already heavy atmosphere became almost suffocating.
Everyone was still in a trance when suddenly, like a lightning strike, Alex flew towards the woman sitting nonchalantly on the golden, angel-like throne. He was so fast that he almost became just a shadow in everyone’s eyes.
Nobody expected Alex to immediately charge at the woman in black and he did it before the others could even breathe again. Alex’s move broke the spell that everyone was under and they all watched with wide eyes as Alex
appeared in front of the woman, with his sword raised, prepared to slash her throat but…
A deafening metallic clunk echoed in the large cavern. Alex’s move was unexpected but what was even more unexpected was the fact that a man in black had appeared in a blur in front of the woman in black, stopping Alex’s attack with his very own sword. The clash of their two swords created powerful sparks.
Nobody had noticed this man’s presence in the cave and then in the next second, he was there. It was as if he was able to move as fast at Alex. He would have had to move just as fast to catch that attack! What the heck was happening?!
In that moment, Alex’s eyes widened as his grin became even more devilish. The man who had stopped Alex was wearing a full silver mask with only his fiery red eyes visible from behind the mask.
The two retracted their swords and they leapt away from each other with the masked man standing in front of the woman in black, while Alex ended up before the cocooned witch queen. They stood meters away from each
other, eyes glued on each other. Neither of them blinked, as if doing so would cause their death. And maybe that wasn’t an exaggeration. If one of them let their guard down, even just by blinking, the other would be fast enough to take the other down.
The atmosphere became electrifying, as if the tension between the two swordsmen was so intense that it manifested in the air around them.
Everyone held their breath again. They were dumbfounded. Even the elite vampires had their mouths subconscious fall open. Someone actually managed to stop Alexander’s attack?! Who was he?! What was he?!
Was this man the secret weapon of this woman in black? Could he be the strongest hybrid that the woman created? But no! The hybrid’s eyes were a lighter shade of red, closer to orange, not the glowing, deep, bright red that this man had.
Everyone could tell that this man was no ordinary vampire. They couldn’t believe it. This was simply unthinkable. In all their life, they had never seen anyone who could stand against Alexander like this, nobody except for their Prince Ezekiel
Silence fell upon the group and it was so silent that they would have been able to hear a pin drop. The elite vampires couldn’t help but feel their hearts thud crazily against their chest with great unease. Even Alicia
clenched her fists as she too drew the same conclusion as the others. Abi also heard it, that distinct heartbeat. The man in the silver mask was no doubt a member of the vampire royal family. But how could that be?
The woman sitting on the throne leaned her head to the side as she rested her face on her knuckles, looking at Alex with an amused gaze. She had that peculiar calmness that felt way too familiar to Abi and the strangest
thing was that her heartbeat was not unusual. In fact, it was a very normal heartbeat, like Abigail’s. She had a human heartbeat.
“I see that you haven’t changed at all, Alexander. You are still as reckless a man as ever,” the woman in black said, nonchalantly. She acted so laidback, like she feared nothing in this world, not even death, somewhat akin to how Alex had behaved the first time Abi met him.
Hellbound With You Chapter 435 – Kill Them All
“Shut up, woman,” was all Alex replied, not even throwing her a glance. His eyes were still glued to the masked man before him.
The woman seemed to be displeased by his remark that she straightened up and clenched her fists.
“Catch him,” she ordered and the masked man attacked without a second thought, causing Alex to smirk.
In the next moment, the two engaged in a fierce battle of swords.
The masked man had pointed his sword, ready to strike Alex through his abdomen. Alex defended himself by swinging his sword in front of him, swiping the other man’s blade away from his body,
sparks flying from the contact. Alex then countered with an overhead slice, aiming to cut down the masked man in half lengthwise, but the masked man spun away from his impending doom, causing Alex’s sword to smash on the ground, creating a large crack.
Alex didn’t have time to think as the masked man jumped up high in the air, replicating the attack he had just used and Alex quickly lifted his sword over his head,
putting a hand under the flat edge of the blade for reinforcement, as the masked man’s sword made contact, causing Alex’s hold on his sword to waver. Alex managed to push the attacker off him and he leapt back, creating some space between them.
The masked man didn’t look like he was at a disadvantage. In fact, he was almost on par with Alexander and what was worse was that it was as if he knew everything about Alex’s strength and speed. It was as if he could read his next move.
The elite vampires continued glancing at each other. The masked man’s movements looked way too familiar to them. It was way too identical to their master that even though they didn’t want to believe it, suspicion had started to bloom within their hearts.
The battle was extreme. Sparks and clunks from the sword were the only thing that could be heard, with neither of them gaining the upper hand. When one attacked,
the other defended and countered just as swiftly. Even if Alex was as fast as lightning, the masked man was able to counter him through predicting his moves. This back and forth went on for a while with no one giving the other a chance to finish off the fight.
Everyone was in a trance as they watched, and Alex was still smiling, obviously enjoying the dangerous, adrenaline-inducing, thrill.
Alicia was the first to break out of the trance and she immediately went to work. She started to chant some spells that would increase Alex’s strength and agility but before she could finish,
she felt something whoosh past her cheek. Her hand went to her face and she felt the blood dripping from the cut that appeared. She was shocked. She didn’t know where that attack came from. Was it the woman? Or was it her minion?

“Tsk, tsk don’t interfere, little witch.” They all heard that smooth, nonchalant voice again. “Or your queen is next,” the woman in black threatened.
There was a small break in the fight as everyone woke up from their trance. They couldn’t believe that they had let their guard down! If the witch had aimed for Alicia’s heart,
then she would have been seriously hurt! And what if it was Abigail that was attacked?! Oh god, they didn’t even want to think about that possibility. They would be dead meat, for sure!
As the elite vampires started to turn their attention to their task, Abigail started to hear heartbeats, many more heartbeats, and they weren’t only the heartbeats of hybrid creatures. This time, she heard the heartbeats of normal vampires and normal witches, too.
The woman in black stretched out her hand, pointed at Abigail and commanded her army. “Catch her,” she said and the vampires and witches appeared from behind the throne and immediately charged towards Abigail.
The elite vampires were quick to position themselves and in a blink of an eye, the enemy reached them. Alicia and the other witches on their side started chanting spells.
Another fierce battle broke out. The new army that came at them weren’t as many as the horde of hybrids they faced, but they were strong. They were on par with the elite vampires and they knew the reason why.
These vampires were normal rogue vampires and they were this strong because, unlike the elite vampires, these vampires had drunk human blood and not only that, they also witches on their side!
As the fight broke out, Alex, who was fighting the masked man, became distracted. He was constantly glancing at Abi, checking to make sure she was fine.
He saw that the new group of vampires and witches were even stronger and this had him slightly worried. Even though Zeke’s men were battle hardened and well-trained, they still hadn’t drunk blood. This was a different story to fighting the hybrids.
Unfortunately, because Alex was distracted, the masked man took the opportunity and pieced his abdomen in a bold attack.
Alex fell to the floor, his blood flowing like a river as his wound healed.
“Alex!!!!” He heard Abi’s scream and he looked up at her. She was crying as she looked at him, looking worried to death.
“Geez. Don’t cry, my love. I told you already. I won’t die,” he murmured, knowing that Abigail could hear him.
The next second, he attacked the masked man as well and he made contact, causing the man to land against the wall, shaking the cavern due to the impact.
And then in a blink of an eye, he was up there on the throne, capturing the woman in black and holding his sword against her throat.
“Get away from them or this woman’s head will roll,” Alex’s voice thundered and everyone halted.
The masked man was back and he stood before them, not caring about Alex’s threat at all.
The woman in black laughed.
“Oh, Alexander You’re finally holding me,” she uttered. The way she spoke was so seductive and everyone couldn’t believe that she wasn’t scared at all.
Alex ignored the woman and his sword started slicing through her skin.
“Get away from them, now!!” Alex’s voice indicated the last warning.
But to everyone’s surprise, the woman continued laughing and she instead stretched her hand out again, pointing at Abi’s direction.
“Don’t stop. Kill them all and get Abigail to me,” she ordered, and the woman’s minion started to attack again, causing Alex’s eyes to blaze. The next second, he slashed the woman’s neck without hesitation and he let her body fall to the floor.
Alex didn’t give her a second glance and leapt to go to Abigail when a voice halted him.
“Where do you think you’re going, Alexander?”
Alex’s eyes widened and Abi, who had seen the entire thing, had the same expression.
Alex slowly turned, eyes filled with disbelief. The woman who was supposed to be dead, spoke and was standing again.
Hellbound With You Chapter 436 – Who Are You?
The world seemed to halt. Was she dreaming?
Abi had seen it with her own eyes. Alex had slashed the woman’s neck with his blade. She should’ve been dead. So how was she still alive?! Wasn’t she just a human?!
Her gaze fell on Alex. Though she could only see his back, Abi could tell he was as shocked as she was.
Even Alicia and everyone who saw what happened felt overwhelmed. They couldn’t believe it. The only one who could still live after being slashed like that was Alexander. No one else!
They could only pray that this was just an illusion. It had to be. How could this woman still be alive? There was just no way! They waited for the illusion to fade but she didn’t disappear.
She stayed there, looking as alive as any of them. If it wasn’t for her blood stained skin and blood soaked clothes, they would have believed that Alex hadn’t slashed her throat.
It seemed this was real and the woman who was supposed to be dead was laughing again, a twinking laugh that would haunt their nightmares.
“Hahaha. Oh, Alexander don’t give me that look,” her villainous yet hypnotic voice echoed again. The way she called Alex’s name made Abi feel a different kind of unease in the pit of her stomach. The woman was calling his name like she wanted him.
Alex once again charged at her but the masked man confronted him again and with that, another round began between them.
The woman in black watched Alex and the masked man like she was amused at their intense battle. On Abi’s end, Alicia, Riev and Raven and five more of the other elites were left. All the other witches were dead.
The men, including Alicia, surrounded Abigail.
“Raven, I think it might be best if you guys escape this place with Abigail,” Alicia said, causing Abi to immediately panic.
“No! Please. I can’t just leave while Alex is ”
“Abigail, we’re losing! If you don’t leave this place, you will that woman will take you. And you know what will happen then, right? She will use you to make Alexander surrender!”
What Alicia said made Abi’s lips tremble. She knew that that was probably that woman’s aim. But how could she just leave her Alex here? She was going to run away and leave her husband to fight alone?
Abi shook her head. She was scared for Alex. And if she left like this, she would hate herself even more for being so useless. She had had enough of this.
She was the only one standing around while everyone around her was dying to protect her. She hated this to her bones.
But if she refused and the enemy really used her, she would be the cause of Alex’s downfall. How could she live with that? What would she do? What could she do then?
Abi felt like she was going to burst. She wanted to cry and she couldn’t help but hate herself. Why couldn’t she be useful for once? Why couldn’t she help Alex in his battle? She didn’t choose to come to his hell just to watch. She wanted to do something for him too!
While Abi’s insides were being torn apart from her internal battle, she saw Alex suddenly fall to his knees, clutching his chest. He looked like he was breathless. The masked man stood right before him, watching him closely.
Abi’s body began to tremble. What happened? Didn’t he remember everything already? Why was he in that state again? No!! This couldn’t be happening! Not right at this moment!
Tears flowed from Abi’s eyes. Alex looked like he was in pain. He was in danger. He lied. He had lied to her. He was not safe at all. He hadn’t regained all his memories yet.
“Oh, Alexander how foolish you are to sacrifice your immortality just to save a girl,” the woman in black stood up from her throne and she started waltzing towards Alex.
As she walked closer to him, she picked up Alex’s sword that was lying on the ground just out of Alex’s reach. She kept walking towards Alex, the sword’s tip creating sparks as she dragged it against the ground.
Seeing that woman walk closer and closer to Alex, who was still in pain and gasping for breath, made Abi lose her senses. That crazy woman was going to kill him. She couldn’t just watch. She couldn’t take it anymore.
And before she knew it, she forced her way out of the circle, her protection, and escaped. Alicia and Raven were too late to stop her because they were too focused on the vampires and witches they were fighting against.
Abigail ran towards the stairs. “Alex!!!” she screamed, crying as she climbed up the stairs.
Alex heard her scream and he gritted his teeth. “Don’t don’t come leave” he begged between his gasps.
But Abigail didn’t stop.
The woman in black turned and when she saw Abigail, she let go of the sword and walked towards Abigail instead with open arms, as if to welcome Abigail.
Abi halted upon seeing the mad woman more than ten steps away from her.
“Oh, Abigail. You’re finally being obedient,” the woman said, her voice suddenly kind.
“Who are you? What do you want from me?!” she asked. Abi was surprised that she didn’t feel scared. No, this woman didn’t scare her. What scared her was Alex being in danger. She would not be able to take it if something bad happened to him.
The woman took another step closer to her and then stopped.
She lifted her hand and began to remove her veil.
The moment her black veil fell on the floor, Abi’s eyes dimmed. She was so shocked. Her body felt like it turned into a statue.

Hellbound With You Chapter 437 – One Of A Kind
“No this can’t be…” Abi shook her head as her lips trembled. Her face was filled with denial. This woman. It couldn’t be! This was not her mother! Her mother was dead!
“Abigail, it’s me. Don’t you recognize me?” the woman asked, but Abi continued shaking her head, not wanting to believe what her eyes were clearly seeing. She couldn’t speak.
She felt like her brain had melted down. She closed her eyes and her body wobbled for a second before she opened up her eyes again. She looked at the woman again, determined to find something that would make sense.
The woman’s face was exactly her mother’s. It was as if her mother had a twin they didn’t know about. No, it was like her mother had been duplicated from head to toe. However, what Abi felt towards the woman was very different to what her eyes were telling her.
This woman didn’t feel like her mother. Abi couldn’t really remember much as she was only a little girl when her mother died but she remembered that feeling of being in her mother’s arms, the warmth, the sense of protection and love. She felt none of that from this woman.
This wasn’t her mother and yet’No, Abigail! Your mother was dead,’ her mind fought.
“M-my mother she’s dead. You’re not her!” Abi clenched her fists. There was just no way, right?
But the woman smiled at her so sweetly. “I won’t force you to believe me, Abigail ”
“Leave!!!” Alex’s voice pulled everyone’s attention. Abi looked at Alex as he struggled to stand. When he was halfway up, he fell again. He really was losing his strength again. “Leave this place, Abigail. Wait for me outside,” he whispered with ragged breaths.
“No, I won’t leave you. We will leave this place together, Alex,” Abigail replied causing Alex to hiss.
Abigail looked at the woman again but this time, her gaze was fierce. She wouldn’t fall for this trap. She would never believe that she was her mother. Her sweet mother was dead.
The woman’s face looked displeased for a moment but she was quick to cover it up and her face became sweet again.
“Abigail, didn’t you come here to save him? Do you want to know what could save him?” the woman asked her.
Abi looked at Alex again. The god of slaughter just a while ago had turned into a seemingly vulnerable human.
She couldn’t speak but deep within her, she wanted to know the answer. It was her mission to save Alex. But before she could ask, the woman spoke again
“The only thing that can save him is my blood, Abigail,” she said causing Abi to crease her brows. “Once he drinks my blood, he will be saved. Simple, right?”
Abi shook her head. She didn’t know why but what the woman said made her heart squeeze in both fear and pain. She didn’t know why but that idea felt off.
“Y-your blood? Why would it be your blood?”
“Because I’m like him, Abigail.”
Confusion once again clouded Abi’s eyes, even though she kind of understood the gist of what this woman was trying to say. But that couldn’t be the answer. No, she refused to believe it.
“Didn’t you see it with your own two eyes? Like him, I have the dragon blood in my veins,” she added and Abi’s world seemed to collapse around her.
Abi had thought about this possibility when she saw the woman stand up again after being slashed, but she ignored it. How could this be? There were two immortals in this world?
“Y-you mean you also drank the blood of the same dragon Alex had slain?” Abi asked, her fingers slightly trembling.
The woman looked at Alex and there was glint in her eyes that Abi didn’t like.
“Yes.” She responded. “And that is why both Alexander and I are immortals.”
“H-how could ”
“That is why Alexander needs my blood, Abigail. My blood is what he needs to be saved.”
The look in the woman’s eyes was serious and Abi couldn’t find any more reason not to believe her. She had seen it with her own two eyes. And it made sense, somewhat.
If Alex’s immortality was disappearing, then wouldn’t it make sense for him to drink the blood of an immortal to regain it?
“You’re going to let him drink your blood?”
“Why? What do you want in exchange?”
The woman stared at her as silence reigned between them for a moment.
“In exchange, give me your blood, Abigail,” she answered and Alex groaned again, pulling Abi’s attention back to him.
“No!! Leave Abi please!!” he grunted. He looked weaker and weaker with each second that passed by. He was in pain. He should’ve passed out by now. But he was still holding on despite the agonizing pain he must be feeling.
She knew that the pain he was feeling was beyond extreme because, knowing Alex, he wouldn’t even groan in pain like that while being burned.
Abi forced herself to look away and looked back at the woman.
“Why? Why would you want my blood? I am I am just a weak human,” Abi told her. She didn’t understand. She was confused. Why would this woman need her blood when she was already this powerful? Humans were
powerless against them; she could easily catch one and drink their blood whenever she wanted. So why would she ask for her blood in exchange for saving Alex?
The woman’s lips curved and she stretched out her hand.
“Oh Abigail, yes, you are just a mere human,” she told her, although Abi found her tone doubtful as she said that. “But your blood is special. The most special blood and one of a kind in this world.”
Her answer confused Abi even more. Why would a human like her have special blood?
“I don’t understand. I ”
“You will understand once everything is over, Abigail. You will see just what kind of special creature you are. You will see what I am talking about,” the woman cut Abi off as Alex groaned again. This time, louder and more agonizing.
Abi looked at him again and her heart was breaking apart. She couldn’t watch him be like that anymore. Her mind was messed up. She knew this was suspicious, that she couldn’t trust this woman at all. But what if Alex died
right before her eyes? She would die, too, if that happened. All she wanted now was to save him. No matter what kind of method was required.
“Now come, Abigail. Give me your blood and I assure you, Alexander’s suffering will end,” the woman stretched out her hand to her. “Come, let’s not make him suffer like this anymore. Only you can save him.”
“How about you save him first before I give my blood to you?” Abi negotiated at the last second.
“I can’t do that. Alexander will never let me drink your blood if he is back to his old self. It’s okay, I promise, I will not kill you. Trust me. You will understand everything after this. Right now, he’s dying. We have to save him first before it’s too late.”
Abi’s body was trembling. She glanced at Alex again and he seemed to have stopped struggling, as if he was already on his last breath. A tear fell from Abi’s eyes and her feet began to move closer to the woman in black.
Hellbound With You Chapter 438 – Wake Up
Abi’s heartbeats drummed in her ears, loud and fast.
As she walked closer to the woman, the world seemed to move in slow motion. She didn’t know if she was doing the right thing. She didn’t know who this woman was but she had immortal blood, like Alex.
What if she was right and that was indeed what he needed to get better? Nothing else that she had tried seemed to work so even though she didn’t trust this woman, she had to try this out.
She knew that this decision was a gamble and she hated that all she could do was this; to sacrifice herself but Alex was running out of time.
Alicia and the rest of their troops were watching the scene unfold but they were kept occupied by the vampires and witches who were determined to end them. How could they stop Abigail?! They all knew this was a bad idea, especially Alicia.
“Abigail! Stop!! You don’t have to do this. This isn’t the way!” Alicia yelled but Abigail didn’t hear a thing. It was as if Abigail was in a trance.
Alicia was in a slight panic and she turned her attention to the enemies before them, looking for a way to slip through their defenses and reach Abigail. Fortunately,
Raven and Riev were able to create a gap between the enemy line and Alicia quickly took the opportunity to escape and head towards Abigail.
However, the moment Alicia landed on the stairs and started running as fast as she could towards Abigail, the masked man blocked her way.
Alicia looked up as she halted a few steps away from the masked man. She looked into his bright red eyes and in the next moment, Alicia pulled out her silver sword and held it up in front of her.
It seemed she had to fight this man to get to Abigail. She knew that she was no match for him, after seeing him fight against the strongest vampire of them all. Even so, she couldn’t let him stop her. She needed to get past him to stop Abigail!
Taking a deep breath, she looked at her target. Her eyes were fierce with resolve as she lunged at the masked man, swinging her sword in a small arc towards his neck but the man easily blocked her attack and pushed her,
causing Alicia to stumble a few steps backward. How the hell was she going to get past this man?! Her gaze went to Alex, who was slumped on the ground, then to Abigail who was only a few steps away from the woman in black and then on her opponent.
He really did seem familiar. Was he really Prince Ezekiel?
“Ezekiel? Is that you?” Alicia asked him. “Let me through. I need to get to Abigail!” she pleaded, but the man remained stubbornly silent.
His response to her words was to walk closer to her and Alicia braced herself for the attack that she knew would come. She had used up most of her energy from the first two battles but she still had some strength left.
Even if she had all of her energy, she would still be no match for this man. She would have to use her wits to get past this creature.
She swung her sword at him again as she chanted a spell and in the next second, a very bright flash of light was released from the blade of her sword, blinding the masked man for a split second. It was all she needed to get past him. She ran with all her might towards Abigail,
not wasting a millisecond of time she had. She didn’t look back as her legs fought against time, because she knew it was only a matter of time before the masked man caught up to her.
She was getting closer and closer to Abigail. She could almost reach out to her. Only a few more steps and she would be able to drag Abigail away. She knew this was a trap because her queen was telling her to stop Abigail. Her queen was telling her that she had to stop that woman from drinking Abigail’s blood!
She took another step, reaching out her arms towards Abigail to pull her back but before she could reach Abigail, an arm grabbed her from behind and the edge of his sharp sword grazed her neck. The masked man caught her and she was now under his mercy.
“No!” she screamed. Alicia gritted his teeth because she saw that Abigail was now in that woman’s hands.
“Abigail!! No!!!” Alicia screamed. Abi heard Alicia and she stopped and turned around but it was too late. The woman had Abigail in her grasp and pulled out a small dagger.
Realizing that she couldn’t stop the woman, Alicia looked at Alex and screamed at him.
“Alexander!!! She will kill your wife!! Wake up!!!”
Alicia’s words seemed to have reached Alex’s consciousness. ‘She will kill your wife’ those words echoed inside his dark world. Alex felt like he had been drowning in darkness and he was finding it very hard to breathe, as if the
world he was in was lacking in oxygen. He was floating, falling deeper and deeper. He felt like he could succumb to the darkness to make the pain go away. If he just closed his eyes forever, then he would never feel pain like this again.
But those words jolted him out of the pitch black world he wanted to drown in. He opened his eyes again.
Alex forced himself to lift his face as he crawled on the ground. His wife was before him, with that woman holding her hostage and that was all it took. Just like when they had fallen from the roof of the castle, something in Alex awakened, despite his body feeling like it was on the brink of death.
Abigail’s face was reflected in his dark eyes and he saw her tears falling down her face as the woman in black brought a dagger to her neck and started to slash her skin.
Hellbound With You Chapter 439 – Darkes
Abigail’s blood started to flow out from her wound, making its way down her neck and running over her collarbone, staining her shirt.
The world halted and Alex’s blood that seemed to have turned into ice, began to boil like never before. His body began to surge with newfound energy and his dark eyes glowed golden with more intensity than anyone had
ever seen before. It was like he became possessed by a powerful spirit and in the next moment, he disappeared from where he was like a phantom. Those who had their eyes on Alex only saw him disappear from his spot and
they couldn’t follow his movements. They couldn’t see where he went but they knew where he was going.
He appeared, like he had teleported, right next to Abigail, took the dagger from the she-devil’s hand and plunged the dagger into her neck instead.
He then grabbed Abigail and he took her away, leaping away from the queen. It all happened so quickly that even the masked man didn’t have time to respond.
“How dare you touch my woman,” he hissed and Abi who had just realized what happened looked at Alex with bewildered eyes. She was in his arms again and she couldn’t believe it.
However, just as Alex put her down on the ground, Alex fell to his knees again. Abigail immediately bent down and put her hands on his face.
“Alex!!” she called his name as she searched his face. His eyes were black again.
“Abigail… ” Alex whispered her name so sweetly that Abigail couldn’t stop the tears that fell from her eyes again. He looked at her with such sweet love written on his face and she could tell that he wanted to say something
more. She didn’t know what it was but she felt like she didn’t want to hear him say it. She was afraid that he might have wanted to tell her ‘goodbye’.
“Shh save your energy,” she said, as she hugged him tightly, praying to heaven and hell to not take her Alex away from her! Her tears continued to flow and she hugged him as if she never wanted to let go.
“Well, well, well. Isn’t this a touching scene?” the woman sneered, her beautiful face twisted in anger as she pulled the dagger from her neck. Once the blade was out, her wound healed immediately. She no longer bothered to conceal her true nature. Play time was over.
The woman’s gaze was locked on Abigail, who had her back to her as she held Alex in her embrace. Her eyes zoomed in on the bloody wound that she inflicted on Abi’s neck, on the blood that was trickling down. She licked
her lips, as if she was famished and she had just stumbled upon a feast, as she walked towards Abigail. Once she was standing just behind Abigail, she clenched the dagger in her hand and brought her arm down to stab Abigail.
What happened next was a blur.
Abigail, with Alex’s sword in her hand, swung around, slicing the woman in the abdomen even though she was quick to jump backwards.
Alex had brought them back to where his sword had fallen. He had reached out to grab it when he fell to the floor. When she heard the woman walking towards her, she had sneakily picked up the sword and she slashed out behind her when she thought the woman was close enough.
Abi didn’t know how she had the strength to do that but she managed to do it. Or at least, managed to make the woman jump away from her and Alex!
“Don’t hurt my Alex!!” Abi said, gripping the sword in her trembling hands as she stood up and faced this imposter.
The woman in black looked shocked and she looked down at her belly that Abi had wounded.
The wound wasn’t healing.
The woman blinked a few times and her face looked bewildered, unable to believe that her wound wasn’t healing.
Abi was also just as shocked. Why wasn’t she healing anymore? Was it because of this sword? But Alex used this to behead her and she still came out alive!
The woman’s hands trembled and the next second, she screamed. “Come out!! Kill her!!!” she shrieked and more men in black, wearing the same mask as the one who fought Alex, appeared.
“Kill her!!” she pointed at Abi with uncontrolled rage.
Abigail stood her ground, holding the sword before her the way Alex had taught her just an hour or so ago. As the mob started to attack her, she swung her sword but the masked men easily evaded her attack and countered.
Abi was just fast enough to block an attack but the force of the hit threw her back and she landed on the ground,
hard. The sword fell from her hand from the impact, close to Alex. She crawled towards it, towards Alex and quickly picked it up. She then knelt next to Alex who looked like all his strength had left him.
“Alex” she called out, crying and Alex opened his eyes. What appeared before him was his wife. She was crying again and
The moment he saw blood flowing down her neck, Alex’s heart pulsated. His dark eyes became even dimmer; the darkest state it had ever been.
“Take Alexander and kill her!! I will drink her blood as she dies!!” The woman ordered and the men were about to jump on her when suddenly, Alex pulled Abi into his embrace.
In the next moment, he screamed.
Everyone didn’t know why they halted upon hearing his scream. Maybe because it sounded so agonized and terrifying that they even subconsciously felt shivers down their spines.
The masked men could only watch him rise, his aura reeking with darkness, a darkness that was enough to
paralyze them. It was as if the dark dragon had been awakened. Alex had turned into a complete beast, his eyes were like pure darkness, reeking with death.
Hellbound With You Chapter 440 – Exi
In a blink of an eye, four men were thrown away like they were ragdolls, and they hit the wall with a huge thus, breaking off part of the wall. The impact was so strong that the cavern started to shake. One of them hit the ceiling, causing small debris to fall from the above.
The woman in black stepped back as she watched Alex smash more of her men with one hit, creating more earthquakes inside the cavern. There was no doubt in everyone’s minds that Alex could very well destroy this place.
The woman called more of her men to attack but the result was the same and the woman began to retreat, leaving most of her men inside – sacrificial lambs for her escape.
Alex continued fighting like a mad beast, destroying everything. Stones began to fall and the dust created a haze inside the cave. The earth shook every time he attacked. It was like he was turning into a merciless, destructive creature, almost as if he was turning into a black dragon himself.
As the woman in black escaped, the masked man followed her, leaving Alicia and the others behind. It seemed that the masked man was very loyal to his master.
Once she felt his grip loosen up around her, she immediately went to her queen. A large rock was falling from the ceiling straight on top of the cocoon, so Alicia jumped and used all her strength to move her queen but it was
too late. She didn’t have enough strength and the rock landed on top of the cocoon, creating a large crack along its face.
“My queen!” Alicia called out. The cocoon was breaking and Alicia started to hear her queen’s voice more strongly.
The witch queen was dying. She was gasping for air, as if her lungs were giving out.
“I will get you out of here!!” Alicia wept but the queen stopped her.
The witch queen held Alicia’s hand as he pulled her necklace off with the other hand. She was very weak and she knew she didn’t have much time left. “Alicia” she uttered. I’m so glad you made it here. Take this” the queen
uttered as she put the necklace in Alicia’s hand. The necklace held a small bottle containing a yellow potion inside it.
“Leave me and go get Abigail. Save her. Don’t let her die” the witch queen said, weakly. “My memories and powers will soon go to you you will soon know everything I leave everything to you, Alicia… This necklace, give
this to Abigail. This should only be given to her, understand? Don’t let anyone else have it. Now go.”
“No, I will not leave you here,” Alicia protested. She knew there was nothing she could do anymore for her queen. She knew that there was no way to reverse the spell. This was really happening. Her queen was really going to
die, no matter how much she didn’t want it to be true. In any case, she wasn’t going to leave her queen to die here alone! She was going to bring her with them – well, that depended on whether they could even leave this place.
Alicia was about to speak again when a loud noise startled them. Doors seemed to have opened from underground and another horde of hybrids appeared. It seemed that the woman in black had unleashed all her minions to give her time to escape.
If those minions blocked their exit, they might not be able to leave the cavern anymore. Alicia and the remaining vampires were nearly running on empty. They had been fighting non-stop for a long time and they had no time
to recover. They couldn’t fight their way out anymore and what was worse was that Alex seemed to have lost his rationality.
Alicia watched the scene before her, slowly losing hope.
Raven, who was about to go and get Abigail, was almost killed by Alex. Alex wasn’t letting anyone close to her, even those who were on his side.
“Raven, get everyone and leave this place. I’ll be fine. Alex and I will follow you out. Go!!” Abi told Raven as she stood up from the ground.
When Raven didn’t move, Abi ordered him, her voice becoming as hard as steel. “Listen to me and leave. Alex won’t hurt me. You know that. So, take everyone and go before someone else dies.”
Raven assessed the situation and saw that the horde of hybrids were already blocking the exit where Riev, Alicia and the queen were heading towards.
Raven knew there was no way he could fight Alexander so he could only back off and go fight the hybrids instead. At least he would be able to help Riev and the witch princess leave.
But he, too, was on his very last strength. The witches had managed to poison him and it was spreading around his body.
‘Damn,’ he cursed but still, he went to fight.. Alicia came to his aid but there were too many of them. They couldn’t force their way out. It was impossible.
They could only look back again to Alexander when a light of hope sparked.
Someone was coming from the tunnel and they were killing the hybrids. Had someone sent for reinforcements?
It looked like whoever this someone was, was clearing a path to them and in no time, the horde of hybrids that was blocking the exit dwindled down as they were being killed.
And then, a man had stepped inside.
Everyone breathed a sigh of relief but they didn’t have time to waste. They were about to move when a loud bang echoed inside as the earth shook. Riev and Alicia were caught unaware and they both fell on the ground due to the strong quake.
The cavern was falling apart. It seemed Alex had destroyed the throne as well. Just one more casualty from his fierce attacks.
“Come!!” Kai leapt towards Riev and Alicia and he both helped them up. He pulled them towards the exit but as Kai pulled them, the necklace fell from Alicia’s hand.
Alicia pulled her hand from Kai’s grip and she ran back inside the cavern to retrieve the necklace.
“Witch Prin !!!” Riev yelled as a huge rock dropped from above, blocking the exit tunnel.
