Hellbound With You Chapter 441 – White Lights
Kai could only look at the large rock that separated them from Alex, Abi and Alicia. He felt the ground tremble beneath his feet and he could see the walls start to crumble around them. He quickly ordered his men to
continue down the tunnel towards the exit. He and his men dragged the other vampires out along with the dying witch queen.
As they headed out, the walls cracked and the entire structure started to shake. Falling debris, large and small, started to bombard them and they knew they needed to get out as soon as possible. The moment they were out of the tunnel, the ancient structure crumbled behind them, covering them with dust.
The vampires could only watch in horror. Riev and Raven’s expressions were the same; filled with worry and dread. Their worry wasn’t for Alex nor Abigail. Alexander was strong enough to survive that and they knew that he would do everything to save Abigail… but the witch princess who would save her?
“F*ck!” Riev cursed, and all he could do was kneel on the snow as he held the dying witch queen.
Inside the cavern, Alicia found herself trapped under a small mountain of loose rubble. When she jumped back to grab the necklace, a large amount of debris had fallen from the ceiling and one large rock had blocked her exit.
However, Alicia still tried to make her way out, thinking that she could use all of her remaining energy to cast a spell to move the large rock but she was so weak that her spells weren’t activating anymore.
She was knocked to the ground by the falling fragments and that was how she became trapped. She tightly
closed her fist over the necklace, protecting it with what strength she had left. Unfortunately, when she looked up, the remaining hybrids who had avoided the falling debris, were now coming after her.
Alicia gritted her teeth. Was she going to die here?
She tried to claw her way out of the mountain of rubble when another strong shake occurred. Larger pieces of debris began to fall and thankfully, the hybrids were buried by the falling rocks.
But Alicia just could not catch a break because the same thing was about to happen to her. A large piece of the wall had broken away and was slowly falling over her.
She could only clench her fists. Her legs were stuck and she didn’t have the strength to move anymore. She tried to cast a spell but she knew it was useless. There was no way it would work judging from the last time she had
tried. But what else could she do? Just give up? No, she had to try and stay alive. She still needed to give the necklace to Abigail.
Alicia closed her eyes and chanted as she held the necklace close to her heart, curling her body over it. Protecting it was the most important thing for her to do now. She didn’t open her eyes, knowing that the large wall was
going to crush her any second now. She didn’t want to watch it fall on her. She wasn’t so brave as to stare death in the eye. There was still a little hope in her heart, hope that she might do the impossible and survive this.
The next few seconds felt like hours and Alicia braced herself for the impact. However, the seconds kept ticking by with no sign of the wall crushing her. Did her spell work?! No, that was impossible!
Her eyes flew open and the moment she opened her eyes, what came into her view was a masked man kneeling next to her, holding the wall up with his bare hand.
Alicia looked up at him. His red eyes were blazing. He reached out to her using his other hand and grabbed Alicia’s arm, pulling her towards him to free her.
The man didn’t speak as Alicia just held onto him. “I knew it. It is you, Ezekiel!” she said to him, but the man still didn’t speak.
He held Alicia’s waist and then pushed the large wall up and the masked man leapt away with Alicia in his arms. The next second, the huge debris hit the ground, making the dust swirl around them. Alicia barely had time to
look around as the masked man leapt towards the huge hole in the ceiling where the sky could be seen. He leapt like a bullet, avoiding the falling debris with ease and Alicia could only clutch the necklace in her hand, making sure it didn’t fall from her hands again.
In what seemed like no time at all, they finally leapt out to the outside world. In that instant, Alicia pulled the masked man’s mask off as fast as she could. She knew that the moment they landed, this man would disappear
so she took the only opportunity she would probably have to uncover this man’s identity, to confirm once and for all whether this man really was Ezekiel.
She had felt it back then when she had fought against this man. He had held back a lot when they clashed. When he held his sword against her throat, he could have easily finished her off but he didn’t. He obviously just let her slip away from him when the woman in black was distracted.
The man tried to move his face, and the mask, away from her reach but it was too late. He could have stopped her but he would have had to drop her to do that.
His mask was pulled off and his face came into view as they finally landed on the snow. It was already dark but the moon was out. The northern lights were shining with the rare and breathtaking white lights in the sky.
Alicia breathed out with great relief. “I knew it was you, Ezekiel,” she uttered and Zeke’s lips could only twitch as he put her down on the snow.
Hellbound With You Chapter 442 – Goodbye
He placed her sitting down on the snow, knowing that her legs were injured.
“Where are you going?” she held onto his arm before he could move to rise.
Zeke sighed, closing his eyes.
“I didn’t know that the witch queen-to-be would actually be defeated by falling rocks,” he said, avoiding the question and causing Alicia to frown at him.
“I got drained from trying to keep your men alive!!!” she retorted. She couldn’t believe that those were the first words this man would say to her.
“Well, you did do a good job keeping them alive,” he nonchalantly answered. “Now let go. I have to go.”
“Wait where are you going?” She clasped onto him even harder. “Are you going to that woman? Please, explain all this! Why? Why are you doing this?”
Zeke looked up for a while, watching the rare white aurora dancing above them. Alicia looked up as well. The sky was truly beautiful. It almost looked like Alicia’s silken silver-hair being spread over the night sky.
When she looked at him again, Zeke was touching some strands of her silver hair, playing them with his thumb before he lifted his face and looked at her.
“Why?” he echoed before the corner of his lips curved up. “Because I’m the bad guy here, witch princess.”
Alicia almost held her breath because of the intensity he exuded as he said those words. But she didn’t flinch and she narrowed her eyes.
“Bad guy?” she shook her head. “Why would the bad guy save me then? Who are you trying to fool, vampire prince?”
Zeke smirked at her answer. But his smirk soon faded as she blinked. He let go of her hair and pinched her chin.
“Listen…” he replied, serious. He was looking into her eyes with extreme pressure. “All you need to know is that I’m the bad guy, Alicia. Understand?” he pressed, before he held her hand. “Now it’s time for you to let go.”
Alicia bit her lips. She looked back at him, returning his intense gaze.
“Do you really expect me to believe that after saving me?” She shook her head. “But I understand. I knew there must be a reason why you’re doing this,” she added as she hesitantly let go of him.
Zeke averted his gaze and he immediately rose and walked away. Alicia watched him silently until he halted. Thinking that he was going to leap away, Alicia diverted her attention to her injuries. She looked down, lifted her
skirt and saw the huge gash that started from her thigh down to her ankle. She wouldn’t be able to walk if she didn’t heal it.
She took a deep breath and tried to heal herself. A weak green glow appeared from her hand as she placed her trembling hands over her wound. But the wound wasn’t healing. She was too weak. She felt like something was
wrong with her. Her powers weren’t as strong as they were since her queen broke out from her cocoon.
But then she remembered what her queen told her; that her power would momentarily disappear before the complete transfer of the queen’s power to her would start. She could only tear up because she could already tell
that her queen was now leaving this world. She really wanted to go to her queen to be with her during her last moments on Earth. She was trying to heal herself so she could at least walk but it wasn’t working.
She clenched her fist and hit the snow hard from frustration. But then she froze, realizing that someone was standing before her. It seemed that Zeke hadn’t leapt away yet. Alicia was quick to wipe her tears. She was a
witch and the next witch queen. She couldn’t be seen crying before anyone, especially not in front of this man.
“I thought you were in a hurry to leave,” she told him as she looked up, acting all tough again.
Zeke stared down at her and then his gaze went to her wounded leg. The next moment, Zeke sighed, put on his mask and bent over to gather her in his arms, not saying another word.
Alicia was surprised. She truly thought he was long gone. She looked at him with millions of questions in her eyes, but she knew this man would not give her any answers.
He landed on one of the tree branches. When Alicia looked down, she saw the vampire reinforcement, Riev and the others, including her queen. The vampires were watching the collapsing structure silently. Nobody noticed their presence. It seemed he had concealed his presence.
“Will you not appear before them?” Alicia asked him, expecting him not to answer.
But Zeke spoke. “Not yet,” he said and he jumped down. He landed as swift and silent as a cat and put her down, carefully.
Before she could look back to thank him, he was already gone.
The vampires then noticed her on the ground just a few meters away from them and they quickly approached her.
“H-how did you” Riev was shocked.
“Please bring me to my queen,” Alicia asked, avoiding the question that was on everyone’s mind. Riev bent down to pick her up and Alicia looked back into the dark forest one last time as she was brought to her queen.
“My queen,” Alicia called out as she gathered her queen into her arms.
“Alicia,” the queen uttered, smiling sweetly at her. The witch queen lifted her hand to touch Alicia’s face.
To Alicia, this woman wasn’t just her queen, she was her family. A beloved mother figure to her.
“I am glad I was able to see you one the last time. You did well, little one,” The witch queen said as she rubbed Alicia’s cheek weakly, still smiling. “I am now leaving everything to you, Alicia. Goodbye, dearest…”
As those words came out of the witch queen’s lips, her hand slowly slid down and her eyes slowly closed. A tear fell from Alicia’s eyes and she embrace her queen. A second later, a silver light began to cloak them both.
Hellbound With You Chapter 443 – Just A Little
Meanwhile, inside the cavern, Abi was still standing there, her gaze on Alex. Alex was still fighting. All the normal vampires and witches that the woman in black had left behind were all dead but the trapped hybrids were still coming at him like mindless zombies.
The hybrids never stood a chance. It almost seemed like they were ordered to sacrifice themselves, that their mission was to keep attacking so that Alex would destroy this whole place, leaving nothing left standing.
Abi had been calling for him but Alex wasn’t responding. Whenever she approached him, Alex kept on leaping away, either smashing debris away that was about to fall on her or kill the enemies that approached them.
Abi could only watch him while he did that. It was like Alex had lost his sanity and the only thing on his mind was to protect her and to kill anyone and anything who dared to try and harm her. He didn’t look like her Alex
anymore. His nails had turned pitch black and his veins looked darker, as if his blood had become black.
The change was so drastic that Abi could no longer take it. She needed to stop him now. But how?
“Alex! Please. That’s enough,” she begged as she approached him again. Abi felt more uneasy as time went by because she felt like Alex was starting to transform into something else.
But how could she stop him? It seemed like he couldn’t hear anything anymore. The only thing she could think of was for her to touch him. Maybe, like all those other times before, she might be able to stop him once she
hugged and kissed him. But how? He wasn’t allowing her to get anywhere close to him!
Abi ‘s throat felt raw and sore from trying to call Alex, to try and get his attention. She could hardly speak anymore and her energy was slowly disappearing.

When Abi saw Alex’s fingers start to turn black as well, she could only resort to this last idea. There were still remaining hybrids left and she knew that Alex was going to go after them instead of just waiting for those things to get to them.
So she did the only thing left that she could think of to grab his attention.
Abi suddenly ran towards the group of the vampires. She didn’t know if this would work but all she knew was that Alex would definitely come and save her. And once that happened, she would finally be close enough to hold him.
She ran as fast as she could towards the hybrids, hoping that Alex didn’t jump before her and kill the hybrids first.
However, that was exactly what happened. Alex was just too fast and he materialised between her and the hybrids. But, at the same moment, the ceiling fell apart and a large piece was falling straight on top of Abigail.
Alex quickly turned around and he smashed that first, giving Abi time to reach the hybrids. That was her only opportunity.
As she reached the hybrids, one of them grabbed her hand, pulling her into their small circle. Alex wouldn’t dare to smash them all away with one swing because she was there with them. That meant that he would have to physically grab her and pull her away from the hybrids before he could kill them.
And that was exactly what he did.
The moment he grabbed her waist, her arms flew around his neck and she hugged him as tight as she could.
“Enough, Alex, please,” she begged. He felt hot, hot like a roaring fire. Abi felt like she was going to get burned by him but she didn’t let go and hugged him even tighter.
His breath was also just as hot. These changes that were happening to him made her heart tremble.
“Please. Let’s go home, Alex. That’s enough. I am fine,” she whispered so softly as if she was whispering to his heart. “Let’s leave this place now, okay?”
Realizing that Alex had halted as soon as she embraced him, Abi slowly pulled back a little to look at his face. His eyes were all black. What was happening to him?
Shaking her head to remove these questions from her mind, she reached out to his face and tiptoed to kiss him.
“Alex come back to me,” Abi told him. “Please stop now,” she begged and kissed him again.
The next moment, the darkness in Alex’s eyes began to evaporate. The white in his eyes became visible again and his black veins and nails slowly turned back to normal.
Abi was so relieved but her relief didn’t last because Alex fell to his knees again. He was back to his weak state.
Abi held his face, making him look at her as the two of them knelt on top of the ruins.
“Alex look at me. Are you okay?” she asked him. Alex opened his eyes. They were dazed, almost lifeless.
“My wife” he responded as he leaned his head on her shoulder. “I’m sorry,” he added, his voice so weak and Abi knew he was having a hard time talking.
Abi panicked because Alex’s breaths were becoming shallow. Was he dying? Was that transformation a form of self-preservation?
Her heart thudded so loudly in her ears from fear.
At that moment, she remembered everything that woman had said. If her blood was special, maybe it could cure Alex? That imposter woman was so hellbent in wanting to drink her blood that she wondered if her blood could help Alex.
Abi quickly brushed her hair away from her neck. She didn’t know if this was the right thing to do. She really had no idea what would happen but it couldn’t make him any worse, right?
Holding his face, Abi bumped her forehead on his.
“Alex bite me. Have some of my blood,” she told him and Alex gritted his teeth.
“Please just a little may do. If you don’t, I will die here. This place is collapsing, Alex. If you want me to survive, just bite me and drink my blood. This will save you! Please. Just a little. You won’t kill me,” she begged him.
The wound that the woman had inflicted on her neck was still fresh so Abi held Alex’s face, placing his lips on her wound, knowing that being that close might make him unable to resist.
Alex groaned but Abi held him firmly. “It’s okay, trust me Alex. I’ll be fine,” she said and in the next second, she felt him drinking her blood.
Hellbound With You Chapter 444 – New Queen
As Alex sucked her blood from her neck, her body stiffened and she subconsciously clutched his hair hard because she had expected it to be painful but surprisingly, it wasn’t.
She closed her eyes and her grip on his hair started to loosen up as her tensed body softened. She thought that she really shouldn’t act like she was scared.
Abi was kneeling on the ground with Alex in her arms, waiting patiently for him to have his fill. Abi had expected him to keep going but after just a few seconds, he stopped. Alex groaned and the next second, he suddenly pushed her away.
Abi’s eyes flew open in a shock. Why didn’t he keep going? He didn’t even drink much at all, just one gulp!
Alex’s hands were on Abi’s shoulders, holding her at arm’s length. His fangs had lengthened and his eyes looked fierce, wild and bloody red. His body was shaking hard and he gnashed his teeth, as if he was trying very hard to stop himself from doing something he knew he shouldn’t.
“A-alex it’s okay. I’m fine,” Abi told him but as she lifted her hands to touch his face, the ancient structure began to completely disintegrate around them.
Alex looked up and then like lightning, he grabbed Abigail and held her close against his chest and then he bent
his knees a little before he jumped upwards. As they made their way up, flying, he held his fist in the air above his head and he smashed the huge debris falling above them into pieces. They were on their way out of the
crumbling structure and Abi felt immense relief, not because they were out of the building, but because Alex seemed to have regained his strength. Did the little blood he drank help him?
Abi held tightly onto him, hugging him as hard as her human arms could, as she looked down at the collapsing Ziggurat. Alex had taken them both so high above the ground, so high that the dust from the large, falling structure didn’t reach them.
The bright moon and the white aurora in the background as they flew midair was a breathtaking sight. The scene looked picture perfect.
Alex placed Abigail gently down on the snow and he pulled her hands off his neck almost immediately, as if he couldn’t wait to get away from her. Before she could blink, he was suddenly gone from in front of her.
Alex suddenly appeared in front of Kai, who had seen them fly out of the building and had quickly headed to where Alex and Abi had landed. However, he didn’t expect the greeting he received from Alex. The moment he
saw Alex appear in front of him, Alex’s fangs had already pierced through his skin and sucked his blood so fiercely as if the man was trying to suck him dry.
Kai was caught off guard because Alex had moved abnormally fast. He normally would have been able to at least evade Alex’s fast attack but this time, he didn’t see Alex lunge at him and therefore, he was unable to evade him.
Abi was in a slight daze because she couldn’t believe her eyes. Alex was there one second and then the next he was gone. She quickly looked around to see where he went. She found him, drinking Kai’s blood and she quickly
headed towards them. She knew the amount of blood Alex had taken from her was way too little. He had shoved her away too quickly so there was no way that amount of blood would have satisfied him.
She didn’t know how he still managed to hold himself back in that situation. She just couldn’t understand why he still refused to drink her blood this much and now, he was using Kai the same way he had used Zeke! She
remembered that the last time, Alex had a hard time stopping himself from completely draining Zeke so she ran to him as fast as she could.
She crashed against Alex’s back and she hugged him tight, not saying anything, and to her surprise, Alex voluntarily let go of Kai, causing the very pale man to stumble backwards.
Abi breathed out in relief, hugging him even tighter from behind. She felt his body finally loosen up and that made her relax as well. Was it finally over? Were they safe now? Abi closed her eyes because her eyelids suddenly
felt heavy and her mind started to feel hazy. She felt like she was going to pass out. Because she knew that Kai and the others were out and safe, and that Alex wasn’t in pain anymore, she finally let herself give in to her body’s demands and she collapsed.
The adrenaline had run out and her body lost its strength. This whole thing had taken a huge toll on her mind and body.
Alex turned around and caught her the moment he felt her grip on him waver. His eyes were finally back to normal but he still looked tense, especially when he stared at the wound on her neck.
“Where’s the witch?” Alex asked Kai. Thankfully, Alex hadn’t drained him too much so he was able to recover quickly.
“Do you need me to carry her?” Kai asked, noticing Alex’s tensed body language. Kai could see an unquenchable hunger in Alex’s eyes.
Alex gritted his teeth. He obviously didn’t want to but had no choice.
Kai approached him, gathered Abigail in his arms and the three of them headed towards the rest of the group. Once they landed, the silver glow that had enveloped Alicia and the witch queen was gone. It seemed that the transfer process was done.
Alicia was holding the lifeless witch queen in her arms but she wasn’t crying anymore. She was surrounded by a few more witches who had come when they felt that their queen was dying.
Their surroundings were very quiet as Alicia entrusted the queen’s body to the witches. Alicia had cocooned her inside a crystal tomb and had placed a powerful spell on her and on the witches for protection. She instructed
them to bring the queen back to the Dark Forest where she would follow. All former queens were buried in that place so they had to take her back.
The witches bowed at her, knowing that Alicia was now their new queen, before they finally left.
Hellbound With You Chapter 445 – Remember Tha
Even though Alicia wanted to go and accompany the late queen back home, she couldn’t. All the previous queens’ memories and knowledge were now within her. She finally knew everything and that was why she couldn’t leave Abigail and Alexander’s side until everything was settled.
As the witches finally disappeared in the forest, Alex walked towards her.
With just one look, Alex could already tell that the princess had now become a queen.
Alicia didn’t wait for him to speak because she could already tell what was wrong when she saw that he wasn’t the one carrying Abigail.
“We will go back to the glass house, Alexander. Abigail needs treatment for her injuries first,” she said and Alex just nodded.
“Uhm What about the enemy? They are still out there,” Raven said. His mind was still on that masked man so he couldn’t stop himself from asking.
Alicia looked at him. “They’re gone. They’re not in this place anymore,” she answered, causing everyone to fall silent.
Riev and Raven and two more heavily wounded elite vampires sighed with great relief. It was one hell of a battle they will never forget. Their comrades had fallen. Too many things happened all at once that they couldn’t believe they actually made it out alive.
And even after all that, they still didn’t manage to kill that woman. But at least they had accomplished a lot of things by coming to this place. Their comrades’ deaths weren’t futile because they now knew that aside from
Alexander, another immortal existed in this world. They had also managed to retrieve Alicia’s queen, as Alex had promised, although the outcome of that mission was not what they desired.
Upon arriving at the glass house, Alex didn’t speak. He also didn’t enter the glass house and left Abi to Alicia’s care.
He was sitting outside on the snow, his head down, still holding the sword in his hand.
The snow was falling on him silently but he wasn’t bothered. He stayed there for hours, not moving at all until Alicia came out.
Alicia walked over to him and stood next to him.
“You should come inside. She will look for you once she wakes up,” Alicia said.
But Alex just ran his fingers through his hair and tugged them. “I can’t, unless this thirst leaves me. My blood is still boiling, craving for her blood. My body now only wants her blood the moment I had a taste. Kai’s blood
didn’t calm me down. I knew this would happen the moment I tasted her!” he responded under his gritted teeth.
“Why are you so afraid to drink her blood? I know you won’t kill her, Alexander, and so do you.”
Alex clenched his fist and looked up at her with a fierce gaze.
“Are you saying you approve of me drinking her blood?” His voice reeked with displeasure.
“Yes. I approve. Her blood is the cure we are looking for. This is what I received from the late queen. The reason why Abigail is the only one you can’t remember is because the cure for that spell is her blood.” Alicia explained, causing Alex’s eyes to widen.
What Alicia was saying was right because with just a little taste of Abi’s blood, Alex finally remembered her face in his memories, and his body also became incredibly strong again despite the small amount of blood he had from her.
“Think on this, Alex. You won’t hurt her. Have some trust in yourself. Your love for her will help you control your urges.”
“You don’t know how good she tasted Alicia! Even just the smell of her blood now makes my body tremble. It’s
making me lose my mind. What if I cannot stop myself? And that’s not the only problem” he gritted his teeth again. “Something strange has been happening to my body since I tasted her blood.”
Alicia creased her brows.
“What do you mean?”
“I don’t know. I am still trying to figure out what the hell it is,” he hissed. Anger and frustration filled his eyes. Alex couldn’t tell what exactly it was that changed in him but all he knew was that something seemed to have
awakened inside him. Alex wondered if it had something to do with the dragon’s blood. He remembered what happened to him inside the cavern. When his eyes and nails turned black, he felt like he was transforming into
something else. Something even he couldn’t even restrain or control. Alex couldn’t help but think that turning into a beast in the end might be his real curse and not his immortality.
That thought made him distrust himself. If he was still himself, he would be able to control his actions, but what if the beast residing inside him took over him and he ended up
He tugged his hair once again when Alicia spoke.
“Listen, Alexander,” Alicia looked intently at him. “You don’t have the luxury to figure things out at this point. That woman is immortal, just like you. She’s been alive all these years. She had all the time to prepare while all of us
had no clue about her existence. Even my late queen couldn’t fathom just how much power she had accumulated over that time. And there is definitely a reason why she’s after Abigail’s blood. My late queen didn’t know the
reason why but she believed that all the answers to our questions lie in Abigail. All the answers are hidden within your wife,” she explained. “I know that you already know, Alexander, that Abigail was never just a little, weak
human. There is more to her that none of us knew, except for that immortal woman. Abigail herself doesn’t know anything. So what I need you to do for now is drink her blood for yourself and finally get cured. Trust yourself,
Alexander. You have to completely remember her now and make sure you will not become weak again. No one can save and protect Abigail from harm but you, remember that! You are the only one who can stand against an immortal like yourself.”
Hellbound With You Chapter 446 – Your Love
Alicia had plenty more to say. She had received a ton of important information from her queen that everyone needed to know but she knew this wasn’t the time to do that yet. She had to make sure that Alexander was fully
cured first before they returned to country V where they could deal with this matter efficiently. She also needed everyone to be around so they could make a plan this time and not just charge into the enemy’s lair. They would
not make the same mistakes again. All of them had not expected the existence of another immortal in this world. They thought that Alex was the only one. How that woman managed to hide her existence all this time was quite
impressive in itself but that woman needed to be killed before everything took a turn for the worse. They needed to move now.
“Abigail is alright. I have cured all her wounds and she is doing very well so you don’t have anything to worry about,” Alicia continued. “I will leave her to you. Go to her now before she wakes up and looks for you. Don’t leave her alone again,” she insisted before she finally left.
Once Alicia was gone, Alex rose. He walked towards the door and hesitantly opened it. He was glad the scent of
Abigail’s blood didn’t linger anymore. He silently headed to the bed where he saw Abigail sleeping. Her wounds had been carefully wrapped with white bandages.
She looked so peaceful. Alex lifted his hand to touch her face but he stopped midway, realizing that he was covered in blood – his clothes, his hair, his hands. He stared at his dirty hand and his jaws clenched.
Retracting his hand, Alex headed to the bathroom. Things had gotten even more complicated. He didn’t know
about the existence of another immortal. How come that woman was able to conceal herself all these years from him? Where had she been hiding all this time?
Alex’s eyes sharpened as he stared at the marble wall, while the hot water fell on him. That immortal woman spoke like he knew him but he had no recollection of her at all. Was she someone he knew before he became an
immortal? She must have been, otherwise how would she have been there when he had taken down the dragon?
He tried to think but the scene of her slashing Abi’s neck appeared in his head instead and without thought, his fist hit the wall hard, smashing the bathroom tiles. He would never let that woman touch his Abigail again!
Alex stepped out of the bathroom wearing his white robe as he silently dried his hair. He was quick to get dressed and immediately walked over to the bed.
Abigail was still sleeping soundly so he sat on the edge of the bed, watching her face. He laid down next to her and was about to spoon her but he rose again, almost instantly. He had taken a whiff of that intoxicating scent of her blood and it almost made him salivate.
He cursed within him. This change was too drastic. She wasn’t bleeding anymore so he couldn’t believe he was still able to smell her blood and that it would affect him this bad.
He glanced at her again and his desire for her blood increased by the second. It wasn’t normal and he couldn’t help but fear his own body’s reaction towards her.
Clenching his fists, Alex rose from the bed but before he could take a step away, a warm hand caught his wrist.
“Where are you going?” Abigail asked.
Alex’s head snapped towards her. She was looking up at him with those lovely, big clear eyes of her.
“Don’t leave, Alex. Please stay with me,” she uttered as she tugged his arm. Alex didn’t budge for a while but he eventually sat next to her, although he didn’t face her.
Abi moved to hug him and she noticed his body immediately tensed up.
“Are you okay?” she asked him, worried and curious as to what could have made him react this way.
She got up and knelt down next to him and gently cupped his face, making him look at her, but Alex held her wrists, as if he was preparing himself to push her away.
“Abigail. I am dangerous for you right now. My thirst for you is too much. I can feel it. The urge is too strong and I don’t know I am strong enough to stop myself. Right now, I just want to sink my teeth into your neck and suck
your blood,” he told her, looking grave and angry at himself. How could he crave for her blood like this?
Abi’s expression didn’t change. Her eyes became even gentler and she placed her palm on his cheek, caressing them.
“Alex” she whispered his name. “I cannot even imagine all the struggles you are going through, but maybe you should stop fighting it now”
Alex’s brows creased at her words but Abi continued talking, not giving him a chance to talk back as she gently bumped her forehead on his.
“What I’m saying is, don’t fight your needs anymore, Alex. I willingly offer myself to you. You aren’t forcing yourself on me so don’t think that way. And I know you won’t hurt me. I believe that with all of my being. You also need to trust yourself, okay?”
“Abigail. I don’t trust my body anymore. My body could betray me and you and I wouldn’t forgive myself if I”
Abi smiled at him and planted a kiss on his lips, making Alex tense up even more, clasping the bedsheet under his hands with great intensity.
She pulled away and shook her head. “I trust you, Alex. Your love your love for me is that strong that I know you
would stop yourself from harming me. You have demonstrated this many, many times, Alex, so believe in that. If nothing else, believe in your love for me and my love for you.” she smiled.
Hellbound With You Chapter 447 – Like The Sun
“Besides, your body and soul are mine, remember? They will not betray you. If you don’t trust your body anymore, then trust your heart.” She placed her hand on his chest as she looked at him. “This part of you will never lose because it loves me so much. Even more than its life.”
Abi’s words pierced through the deepest chamber of Alex’s heart. He felt her warmth slowly seeping inside him and just like that, the fear and distrust inside him slowly melted.
Before he knew it, he pulled her towards him and kissed her. Their lips collided as Abi sat on his lap.
“Oh, Abigail” he uttered as he pulled away from their gentle and passionate kiss. He felt like his heart was swelling. And kissing her and holding her right then made Alex feel emotional. Everything he was feeling right
now, his fears and worries and everything else in between, overwhelmed him to an unprecedented degree.
When he drank her blood, he felt as if an ancient chain that imprisoned his dark side had broken and he was so sure that the monster within him had been released at that moment. He feared that her blood had awakened this
monster from its long slumber, a monster he was unable to control. He had been so afraid that this was what was really happening that he hadn’t let his mind think about it to decipher whether it was true or not. He let his fear drive the thoughts in his mind and he let himself drown in the negativity of his thoughts.
Only now did he stop to think rationally about the changes he had been experiencing since he tasted her blood. When he let his mind drift and let the fear go, he was pleasantly surprised that he didn’t feel the darkness that he
thought would feel. Instead, he felt like it was his soul that had awakened inside him, not the monster, and for the first time in a long time, he didn’t feel like he was a beast living inside a half-human body. For the first time, he felt human, human like her.
That thought seemed to be the release he needed from the chains of fear and despair. He was no longer the anguished man but the man who was madly in love with his wife.
“I love you” he then added between their kisses.
“I love you too, Alex. I love you so much,” Abigail responded and their kiss deepened. The next moment, Alex’s lips travelled from her lips down to her nape, slowly.
His hand pulled down her shirt, revealing her collarbone. His warm breath traced her skin, sending that tingling sensation down to her toes.
Everything felt different to her. Her body didn’t tense up this time possibly because this was no longer a life or death situation. His life was no longer in danger. This time, it felt so right and she found herself waiting and anticipating his bite.
Alex’s hands caressed her face to the back of her neck. His bare skin igniting fire on her skin, making her blood boil within her veins.
“Abigail” he called her name again as he sucked in his breath, as if savoring the scent of her. Abi just held his head, her fingers running through his damp hair.
“I’m ready, Alex,” she told him as she turned her face away slightly, giving him full access to her exposed neck.
Alex groaned softly against her neck and the next moment, his fangs finally pierced through her skin. Alex felt like his mind and body would burst from the fire of her blood. The taste of her blood was indescribable, more
than enough to drive him insane. He felt like he had been thirsty for thousands of years and her blood was the divine oasis he finally found.
But then, it started to make his heart shake because he couldn’t stop. His grip on her tightened but Abigail still hadn’t protested to stop him.
What felt like an eternity to Alex was just mere seconds to her. She didn’t move to stop him because she thought that he still hadn’t had enough. She didn’t know that Alex had started his own internal battle, silently begging her to do something to stop him.
As Alex continued to struggle to break free from this heavenly place that Abi’s blood had brought him, he started to see his memories flooding back in. The missing person in his mind was being filled with Abi’s image one after another. He started to hear her voice; her ‘I love yous’, her laugh, her vows and her calling his name. He had
finally found the missing link and his world began to be filled with nothing but their memories, as if this treasure chest from heaven had been opened for him and there was nothing there but himself and Abigail and every moment they had spent together.
A single tear flowed down Alex’s cheek and before her knew it, he pulled away.
Abi was surprised because she felt like Alex had taken way too little an amount than she had expected. But at the same time, she was overjoyed because she didn’t have to stop him. He was able to stop himself!
She was about to smile when she noticed a stray tear rolling down his cheek. Abi’s eyes welled as well but she smiled at him.
“See? I told you you would not lose, Alex.” she said as she wiped that single tear on his face.
Alex snapped and he pulled her, embracing her as tight as he could, shutting his eyes closed. He didn’t let go for a long while and just hugged her. Everything was back. His memories. Every single thing of it.
When he opened his eyes again, his eyes were like the sun again, burning so vividly golden.
Hellbound With You Chapter 448 – The Husband Who Left You
The sun was shining through the windows when Abi opened her eyes. Her lashes fluttered as she moved, rolling over on the bed.
She sat up dizzily, stretching out her hands and then her brows creased as she looked around the room. Her eyes
slowly stretched wide and her lips parted when she saw where she was. There was no mistaking it. She could not believe she was here, in her room in Alex’s mansion!
Abi couldn’t believe her eyes. Was she dreaming?! How did he manage to bring her back here without waking her up?
She pinched her cheek hard and she winced in pain. It seemed like this wasn’t a dream and that she was actually back in this place again! She continued to look around, her face showing signs of utter confusion and surprise.
But then, the images from the night before surfaced in her mind. She and Alex had been in the glass house and they had a very heart to heart conversation and in the end, Alex had
Her eyes flew wide open once again. With the scenes playing vividly in her mind, Abi was quick to leave the bed to look for Alex. What happened last night after Alex had drunk her blood? She remembered him hugging her
before she fell asleep and then nothing after that. Where was he? Was he alright? Did he finally remember everything? Was that why they were back in this house or was it because they needed to regroup to find that immortal woman?
As Abi was about to pull on the door knob to leave the room to look for Alex, the door was pushed open. She hadn’t expected the door to open suddenly and she almost fell backwards, but luckily she managed to maintain
her balance. She quickly looked at who had entered the room. Even though she knew that only Alex would enter her room without knocking, she still had to look to make sure it really was him. What she saw made her heart
burst with great relief. It seemed she might be becoming a bit of a nervous wreck when it came to Alex and making sure he was fine.
“Alex!” she called out, not wasting any second and jumped on him, hugging him damn tight as if she wanted to make sure that he wasn’t an illusion.
“You’re finally awake, my wife,” Alex’s voice rang in her ear and him calling her ‘my wife’ again made her want to burst into tears.
She pulled away and caught his face.
“Tell me you you finally remember everything, right? Alex?” she asked him, her eyes filled with hope and overflowing emotions.
Alex held her hands. His eyes smoldered as he stared at her, bringing her hand to his lips and kissing it.
A mischievous yet sweet smile curved on his lips before it faded and his gaze became serious. “Yes, my little, fruity lamb. I remember everything now. You did well, bringing me back wife,” he uttered.
Abi fell into a trance for a moment before she jumped on him again. Her tears began to flow. She was so happy! After months of living without him, of him not remembering her, he was finally back again. All the heartache she
experienced during her time without him, and even when they were reunited again, dissipated as if she had just taken a strong healing potion. There were no words to describe the utter joy and relief that she was feeling at that moment. It was all too incredible!
“Oh Alex!” she cried and Alex smiled as he lifted her up and spun her around the room. “Oh god, I’m so glad. I’m so happy you’re back, Alex. I feel like I’m dreaming.”
She sniffed once Alex stopped and leaned by the door, not letting her down. He just continued hugging her, as if he, too, did not want to let her go ever again.
“Mm. It’s like a dream. But don’t worry anymore. You have brought me back fully, I promise. I’m not lying this time,” he confessed. His voice sounded a little emotional as well.
Abi pulled away and looked at him and then suddenly, she pinched his cheek, hard. “That’s right, you lied to me. You were almost killed, you stubborn oaf!” She puffed her cheeks, but Alex just smirked.
“Well, I didn’t have a choice that night when you looked like you were going to die from worrying too much, so…” he paused as he rubbed his nose on her cheek. “Don’t worry, that will never happen again,” he continued.
“Good,” Abi said as she nodded. Abi had a disapproving frown on her face, trying to make him feel sorry but in truth, all that didn’t matter to her anymore. All that mattered now was that Alex was here, right next to her, and that he was finally back to his normal self.
Their eyes met and they were about to kiss when a familiar sound made them stop. Abi’s little monster was growling, calling for attention.
“You have to eat now, wife,” Alex said and in one swoop, he gathered her into his arms.
Abi happily clung onto his neck. She couldn’t help but smile. This felt too good to be true, considering what they had gone through just last night and the last few days. It was like they were finally back to earth after spending time in outer space fighting for their lives.
“Uhm Alex?” she spoke as he carried her out of the room.
“Hm? And why are you not calling me husband yet?”
Abi blinked. His question was unexpected.
“The husband who left you is now back. So call me hubby, now,” he demanded. His expression somehow made Abi chuckle. That was right, she hadn’t called him ‘husband’ for what felt like forever.
But now that he brought this up, Abi couldn’t help but chuckle when she remembered how Alex had urged her to forget about her husband and choose him instead. She looked at him with a mischievous smile.
“Oh husband, do you remember how you begged me to forget about my husband who left me?” she asked, her voice full of mischief.
Hellbound With You Chapter 449 – Mysteries Left Unanswered
Alex was quick to clear his throat. How could he forget? He actually ended up even wanting to skin the man and kill him too back then.
Alex groaned. He shouldn’t have brought this topic up. After a second, he cleared his throat again.
“That was the stupid me. I am not that guy anymore so forget about it,” he said sheepishly, not looking into her eyes. Abi chuckled again. Alex was cute when he was like this.
Abi was about to tease him more but they had already reached the grand staircase. Looking at this vast, familiar place made Abi fall silent and she leaned her head on his shoulder as she looked down.
They had so many memories in this house. Abi didn’t think that she would be back here again like this.
“I’ve missed you so much, Alex, and this place, too,” she uttered.
“Me too, my wife. This place is definitely special. It’s where we spent our first days together after all. This is our house.”
“Why did we return here?” Before Alex could answer her question, Abi looked like something popped in his head and she gasped. “What about the others? Where is Alicia?!”
Alex didn’t answer and just looked at her. And then, he put her down.
Abi was still waiting for his response when she heard someone’s voice.
The moment she turned around and looked at the sofa by the fireplace, she saw them all sitting there, smiling at her.
Alicia, Kai, Raven, Riev and the others were there.
Seeing them all looking well and smiling made Abi’s eyes well with emotions. She ran towards Alicia and hugged her tight.
“I’m so glad you’re okay, Alicia,” she uttered.
“Me too, Abigail. I’m glad you are looking energetic again.”
However, before the girls could start getting into a serious conversation, Alex’s hand wrapped around Abi’s waist and he pulled her towards him. He had other priorities at that moment.
“My wife is hungry. She needs to eat first,” he simply said and just like that, he took Abigail away. “Let’s all talk later.”
Everyone could only watch the two lovebirds as they headed towards the dining hall.
“We should’ve invited them to eat with us, Alex,” Abi said.
“Nope. No need. They have eaten already. Don’t worry about them.”
Alex made her sit and Charles, the butler, was already there waiting for them. Abi had missed this old man, too. She thought she would never see this nice old man again.
“Hello, Charles. I’m very happy to see you again,” she said to him and the butler smiled politely.
“Me too, Miss. We have missed you, too,” Charles replied with a doting smile.
Alex started to pile the food on Abi’s plate, just like old times. The old Alex was definitely back, though she didn’t really need the proof. He even started feeding her as well.
“Hubby. You eat as well.”
“I am still full. Don’t worry about me.”
Abi didn’t protest anymore and she just enjoyed her breakfast. The small things that they had done before, the mundane things that they did with their time had never felt so amazing.
The smile on her face just wouldn’t go away, not that she wanted it to. She couldn’t believe how good this felt.
How long had it been since they ate together like this, on this table, in this very same house where they fell in love with each other? This house held so many memories;
this was where he gave her the most magical first kiss and the even more unforgettable day of their wedding.
As she thought about that, her gaze went to her ring finger, to her wedding ring, and then she looked at Alex’s hand. He was also wearing his wedding ring. Her hand caressed his hand and then she intertwined her fingers between his. She looked deeply into his eyes,
her shining brightly with all the love she felt for him and then she leaned in and gave him the softest, loving kiss ever.
As she pulled away, her thumb caressed his wedding ring, making him look down at their hands. “They are finally back where they belong,” Alex said.
Even though he had been wearing it since Abi had told him that he was her husband, it fully held its meaning again now that he had his memories back.
After the meal, Abi was stuffed. They spent a little while in the dining hall before they finally went back to the living room. They were all huddled around Alicia, and she could hear their soft murmurs.
Abi knew that they were probably discussing the next plan of attack. She took a deep breath. Their bliss would have to be put on hold for now because she was well aware that their fight wasn’t over yet.
Besides, she also wanted to know more about that woman, that immortal woman who looked like her mother. She wanted to know who she was and where she came from. She would not easily believe that that woman was her mother.
Alex and Abi both walked towards the group. Even though Alex was now back to his immortal self, they still shouldn’t relax, especially now that they know about the existence of someone like Alex.
What was waiting for them next? What did that woman want from her and Alex? Who was she, really?
There were still too many questions and mysteries left unanswered and Abi so badly wanted to speak with Alicia alone to get those answers, but she would have to wait for now and listen to what the group had to say.
When they finally sat on the sofa, the other vampires left the living room, leaving just the five of them – Abi, Alex, Alicia, Raven and Kai. Riev also left with the others.
However, before anyone could begin to speak, the butler came in and announced the arrival of someone probably none of them expected.
The next moment, a male figure walked inside the room.
It was Zeke.
Hellbound With You Chapter 450 – Planned
Outside the mansion, Riev and the other vampires who just stepped out of the house were utterly shocked to see their master. They never expected him to arrive and show up.
“Y-your highness,” Riev blurted out and Zeke just glanced at him, passing him by without a word.
Riev and his comrades fell into a trance that Zeke had already walked through the entrance door before they snapped. Riev could never forget that masked man they saw fight against Alexander and his suspicion about that man being their Prince Ezekiel still lingered within him.
But Zeke was his master and his loyalty to him wasn’t something that was so easily broken from mere suspicions. Despite their doubts, Riev and the other vampires could never turn their back on their master and future king.
Besides, they had no proof that the masked man was indeed their Prince Ezekiel. There was still the possibility that someone else out there studied their Prince Ezekiel and impersonated him the way that witch impersonated
their Princess Mira. The possibility of there being another immortal was so small and yet, it had happened which made their theory seem not that far fetched after all.
Charles, the butler, closed the door after Zeke walked into the living room.
Everyone turned their heads in his direction. It was obvious in everyone’s faces that they didn’t expect his arrival. Only Alex, it seemed, wasn’t as surprised or bothered by this unexpected visitor.
Alex simply glanced at Zeke as the man made himself comfortable before them without saying a single word.
The living room became silent. They all could have heard a pin dropping on the lawn outside. Alicia was staring at Zeke while Abi’s gaze looked at all their faces, waiting to see who would speak first. She felt that Zeke’s arrival
made the atmosphere somewhat awkward. She knew exactly what was on everyone’s mind because she thought the same thing. If he had betrayed them, then why was he here, blatantly flaunting his presence?
After a minute of silence and people giving each other confused looks at the new arrival, Alex finally broke the silence.
“So? Why don’t you speak first, Zeke.” Alex said. Abi was watching Alex as he spoke and then she looked at Zeke, expectantly waiting for his answer. It didn’t escape her that everyone else’s eyes were also locked onto Zeke, just as curious as she was.
“I believe that the new witch queen definitely has more valuable pieces of information to relay than me, Alex. So why don’t we start with her?” Zeke finally spoke as his gaze fell on Alicia.
The new witch queen could only sigh. She somehow expected that this vampire prince wouldn’t speak. But she wasn’t bothered by Ezekiel’s suspicious silence anymore. Alicia had already seen everything through the former
queen’s memories and she found out that almost everything that Ezekiel had been doing in the last three months had a reason. She now knew why he was doing all these things. Although there were still things that were
questionable and incredibly shady about him that Alicia couldn’t understand, Alicia decided not to stick her nose into Ezekiel’s business because she was now more than convinced that everything that this man was doing had a purpose.
Even now, she would bet her life on the fact that he was here for a reason. His actions were never uncalculated or impulsive and she was sure that this sudden appearance wasn’t because he just felt like visiting.
Moreover, Alicia now knew that Alexander was never unaware. The reason why Alexander had never forced Ezekiel to explain anything was because Alexander understood Ezekiel’s way of dealing with things more than
anyone else. Alexander knew that this man wouldn’t do anything without a reason and he completely trusted this man, even with his life, it seemed.
The silence dragged on as Alex’s gaze on Zeke became even sharper, causing Zeke to continue speaking. “Well, the only valuable piece of information we gathered from last night’s encounter is the fact that that woman can be killed and the one who can kill her is your dear wife,” Zeke said, stating the obvious.
Alicia and Alex weren’t surprised with Zeke’s words but Abi was, and so were Kai and Raven. The three of them creased their brows in confusion.
Alex leaned his face on his knuckles, his eyes sharp as he gazed at Zeke.
“Your plan put my wife in grave danger last night, Zeke,” Alex told him with an unhappy and ominous voice but Zeke was unfazed and faced Alex’s sharp gaze head on, as usual.
“There was no other way, Alex. You know that. And don’t forget that you entrusted me with this. If things didn’t get to that point last night, I don’t think you would have ever drank Abigail’s blood and finally got cured,” Zeke
argued. “Last night needed to happen for many different reasons. Don’t expect me to easily fool that woman without fooling every single one of you first.”
Abigail’s gaze could only dart back and forth between Alex and Zeke. What were they saying? What happened last night was part of Zeke’s plan? Did Alex know about it? What the hell was going on? Abigail looked at Alicia
and noticed that she didn’t look confused or worried or anything of the sort. It seemed this really was all part of some grand plan that Zeke and Alex cooked up.
“That woman is shrewd. She would not easily fall into anything but a well planned trap. I have spent the last three months trying to bring her out of her lair and planning this trap,” Zeke continued.
“So you gained her trust by experimenting with those hybrids?” Alex asked.
Zeke fell silent for a while. “Yes. I used the bodies of the rogue vampires you killed in the last three months. But even that wasn’t enough for her to fully trust me so I had to be careful and resort to last night’s plan. My only
miscalculation was that I didn’t know that that woman actually wanted Abigail’s blood. She wanted Abigail’s blood and wanted you alive at the same time, Alex.”
[Thank you for your patience my lovely hellbounders ^^.]
