Hellbound With You Chapter 521 – When everything is over
Ezekiel held his hand towards Alicia but Alicia just stared down at his palm, still speechless.
The groans and growls coming from Zeres intensified. It was as if someone was torturing him to the most
excruciating degree. Alicia couldn’t help but glance at him and she saw his wings spreading out as he screamed in pain.
“Alicia,” Ezekiel spoke again, this time his tone signified haste.
Alicia returned her gaze towards Ezekiel, staring intensely into the man’s eyes. When Alicia still didn’t make a
move, Ezekiel took a step closer towards her, causing Riev to subconsciously tighten his hold on Alicia, drawing her closer to his chest at the same time.
Ezekiel finally glanced at the wary Riev but he didn’t say a word as he kept walking closer to them. Ezekiel didn’t stop until he was only inches away from Alicia.
And then he leaned in to whisper in Alicia’s ear. “Your blood will end Zeres’ suffering. Dinah’s lying. She is merely
experimenting. She doesn’t know what she’s doing. If you feed him your blood, Zeres will go back to his original
form and he will no longer listen to Dinah. He will listen to you instead,” Ezekiel uttered these convincing words,
words that Riev also heard. “Do as I say, or the two of you will be killed,” he added before he straightened up and locked eyes with Alicia again.
Alicia didn’t know what to say. She just couldn’t believe this. Her eyes darted towards Dinah and the witches and
the rogue vampires surrounding her. Ezekiel was right. If Ezekiel hadn’t done what he did, she and Riev would
have most likely been dead by now and Dinah would have been forcefully feeding her blood to Zeres.
However, were Ezekiel’s words really the truth? Or was he just saying this so that Dinah could get her way?
She had just seen him whisper something to Dinah and now, he was whispering to her right in front of Dinah.
Could she still trust this man? Whose side was he really on? Who was he really trying to fool? Was it Dinah? Or was it her?
No matter how much she tried, she could no longer understand Ezekiel and she really hated it. She hated that he
did not give her any reassurance, something that would sway her into trusting him – anything! Why? Was it
because he didn’t trust her enough? Or was it because he really was on Dinah’s side? She was losing her mind
trying to decipher this enigmatic creature and she was at her wits end! Would she be a fool to trust him? Would she pay that trust with her life?
Ezekiel leaned in once again. “There’s no time. Trust me,” he whispered as he took her hand.
Alicia pressed her lips so tight as she clenched her fists. After telling her not to trust him, he was now telling her
to trust him again? Ugh!! These mind games were going to be the end of her, not Dinah!
“E-ezekiel… you know what? If I had enough strength right now…” she bit her lips hard as she glared at him.
“Your face would be so black and blue that even your own mother would not recognize you,” she uttered through gritted teeth.
A slight smile flashed on Ezekiel’s face but it vanished almost at the same instant that it appeared.
“Hmm. You talk a big game, witch queen. How about this, I’ll let you punch me once when everything is over,” he responded. “For now, come and listen to me.”
Ezekiel pulled her and Alicia no longer hesitated. In the end, she still chose to trust this man. She didn’t
understand it herself – why she still kept choosing to trust this damn man – but there it was. No matter how damned confusing and infuriating he was, she still gave in to him.
As she was being pulled away, her progress was halted by a hand that was still holding on to her arm. Riev hadn’t
let her arm go so Alicia turned to him and nodded, giving him a slight smile of reassurance. “It’s okay, Riev,” she said calmly, surely. The man’s grip loosened and he finally let go, letting his arm fall to his side.
Holding Alicia’s hand, Ezekiel quickly led her to the groaning Zeres.
Ezekiel faced Alicia and then he let her go. Alicia immediately knelt down before Zeres.
She reached out her hands and cupped Zeres’ face. She could see his suffering and pain etched on his face and
the agony in his eyes. She could not even begin to imagine just what kind of pain he had been enduring and her
heart broke at his unfortunate fate. The world had been so unfair to him, making him suffer beyond anything she
could ever imagine and yet, he was a good man. How could this world treat a good man like Zeres in this way?
He didn’t deserve any of it. He deserved all the good things that life had to offer; love and joy and happiness, not this tortured hell he was living.
“Zeres,” she called his name as her eyes locked on his inferno eyes.
The man was gnashing his teeth. She noticed he had also grown fangs and his skin felt hot like molten lava.
“Drink my blood now, Zeres,” she urged him but Zeres just moved his face away as he groaned. It was obvious he didn’t like that idea.
It was then that Dinah’s voice thundered. “I am losing my patience!!! I will f.u.c.k.i.n.g kill her if you don’t do it, Zeres!!!” the woman screamed.
Zeres froze and his deep groans roared.
Alicia cupped his face again. “It’s okay, Zeres. Drink my blood so your pain will finally disappear. Everything will be alright, Zeres,” she said as she glanced at Ezekiel for a moment.
She brushed the hair cascading down his neck and pulled his head closer to her. “It’s okay. This is the only way.
I’ll be fine,” she whispered and the moment Zeres’ lips touched her skin, the man stiffened. And then, a second later, his sharp fangs pierced through her skin.
Hellbound With You Chapter 522 – Soulless
A sharp breath escaped Alicia’s lips as Zeres’ fangs slowly sank into her.
She couldn’t explain the feeling, maybe because her battered body was a little numb now. It wasn’t as painful as
she had initially thought it would be. It was less painful compared to the throbbing pain from her deep wounds.
But maybe, it was all because his lips and breath were just too hot that all her senses were forced to downplay
everything else but the scorching heat on her neck.
But Alicia was soon jolted back to reality as she felt the heat get even more intense compared to a minute ago. It
felt as if Zeres was turning into a literal burning furnace. She briefly entertained the thought of perhaps she
herself might get burned along with him any time soon because the fire on her neck seemed to be spreading in
her body. It still did not cause her any kind of pain surprisingly with the increasing heat, but her throat began to
dry up as if she was suddenly brought to a desert and he was the merciless sun. There was that sudden thought
that it could be any time that she was going to pass out, not from pain but from thirst and heat.
Her body started to lose the little strength left in her. It was then that she realized she was being silly and could
have just pulled away after giving that few drops of blood that Zeres needed. However, as she was trying to act
on her decision, she noticed with slight alarm that she couldn’t move. That feeling of alarm could not even take
root quick enough before she suddenly started feeling like her body and mind were floating – like an extremely
light and fluffy cloud drifting away on a light summer breeze.
A sudden presence of someone’s hand clamping down firmly on her shoulder had her refocus on the situation
and she fought to get her eyes opened. Without warning, her eyes snapped open – bright and alert – as if
awoken from a deep, intense state of meditation.
And then, she was pulled back. “That’s enough. He’ll kill her!” Alicia heard Riev’s voice rumbling next to her ear. It
appeared that he was the one who pulled her back from that limbo and was now letting her weakened body lean
against his chest.
Riev took a step back, with Alicia in his arms. Ezekiel didn’t stop him, so he presumed that the amount of blood
Zeres had consumed directly from Alicia was indeed enough.
Giving Alicia a once-over and then looking at her with a worried gaze, Riev asked. “Are you okay?”
Alicia took a moment to have a mental check of her internal well-being as well as how she was coping physically,
then bringing herself back to reality before giving an affirmative nod at Riev. Her gaze then fell to Ezekiel who
was still standing close to Zeres, looking at the man when…
A loud and bone-chilling growl reverberated and filled the vastness of the cavern. The source of that rumble was very close to where Riev and Alicia stood.
Everyone’s gaze fell on Zeres, frozen still in shock and anticipation.
Riev subconsciously took a few more discreet steps back when he realised that even Ezekiel also moved back, away from Zeres.
Alicia’s eyes were wide in shock as she watched Zeres rose and screamed even louder in utter pain. As if he was
being burned alive on a stake. Her lips trembled as she couldn’t bear watching him continue to be tortured and
enduring this suffering any longer.
With confused and terrified eyes, she looked at Ezekiel. She wished she could speak and confront him, but Ezekiel’s back was facing her. His attention was focused on Zeres.
Alicia wanted to believe that this might be a painful process for Zeres’ transformation. That his pain would soon
stop, and he will finally return to his original form as what that damned Ezekiel had lured her into believing. But
as seconds ticked by, she couldn’t fool herself anymore. She could see that he wasn’t transforming back to his original form. He was transforming into a full dragon.
“Hahaha! Now transform, my great dragon, Zeres!!!” Dinah’s sinister voice thundered, causing Alicia’s heart to
tremble and her body weakened even further. Her feet gave way but thanks to Riev, he was her steadfast pillar of
support and didn’t let her fall to the ground.
A black smoke began to rise and cloud the cavern. Everyone knew it was about to begin – that long-awaited transformation.
Gritting her teeth, Alicia could not hold it in any longer and finally burst out. She tried to struggle out of Riev’s
solid grasp to confront Ezekiel. She knew it’s futile now. Zeres was already transforming. She wanted to scream as
hard as she could. But even if she did that, what was the use? What’s done is already done. It truly gave a bitter
feeling in her as she remembered that saying – there is no use crying over spilt milk. Was this truly it? After all her
struggles and the fight she and Riev had given with their lives on the line – it all only amounted to these extreme feelings of hopelessness?
“Good job, Kiel!!! You really are worthy of my trust.” Dinah added with a triumphant voice, and she laughed out loud again as she approached them.
Ezekiel finally turned to face Dinah but with all the strength she could muster, Alicia moved away from Riev and grabbed Ezekiel’s collar.
“Y-y-you…” she stammered. “How could you lie to me like this?” she asked. Her silver eyes were welling up, but
not a single drop of tear fell from them. “Why? Why did you… how could you…” her voice was broken and scratchy.
Alicia couldn’t even form a coherent sentence. She was too devastated. Her hands were trembling. And yet,
Ezekiel was like a statue made of marble, no reaction appeared on that icy mask he called his face at all. It was as
if he was truly a soulless creature.
Hellbound With You Chapter 523 – At last
Alicia could only tremble when Ezekiel didn’t say a single word. Was she trembling out of incredulity? Or was the
trembling caused by the thought that she was utterly foolish in trusting this person? She was awfully remorseful
in taking that step of granting Ezekiel that final bit of trust – hoping that his emotionless face was only a ruse for
tricking Dinah – but at her own risk. Unfortunately, from how matters are developing at the moment, it seems as
if the trick was on her! A mocking laughter rang behind her as Dinah stood there, looking at Alicia like she was some pitiful object.
“My bad witch…” Dinah said. “Let me enlighten the pitiful you…” she uttered as Alicia let go of Ezekiel and faced the woman.
Riev immediately grabbed Alicia and once again pulled her close to him while Dinah stood next to Ezekiel.
The look in Dinah’s eyes were filled with nothing but pride as she gazed up at Ezekiel. “Ezekiel here has been my
most important aid,” she started before looking at Alicia. “He’s been my loyal follower for a long time and his loyalty is only dedicated to me…” she enunciated every word. “Alone.”
After those words left her lips, she laughed again.
Alicia could practically hear her heart crack and break into pieces. Why?! She thought back of all their interactions
previously, turning them one by one – trying to determine if he had even once given her a hint that he was on
Dinah’s side. Was she so blind to have missed any clues? Earlier she had just thought she truly was fated to be
the witch queen. But now, she did not dare to be so sure anymore. She dragged her watery eyes up and courageously confronted Ezekiel’s emotionless and cold ones.
Whatever words Alicia wanted to say were lost. What else could she say? All she could do now was to only helplessly stare at Ezekiel.
“What. Still couldn’t accept the reality?” Dinah spoke again. “Shall I enlighten you more about Kiel’s loyalty to me?”
Alicia didn’t want to hear anything anymore. She no longer care. She no longer know what to even feel at that
moment. And her body began to ache. She felt like if she could just shut down even for a moment – that would
be utter bliss, even if that blissfulness was just plain forced ignorance.
But as she closed her eyes, Zeres’ growl pulled her attention back to the black smoke. His growls and deep guttural roar intensified like never before.
Everyone stepped back once again as something which seemed to be just innocent little sparks of lights slowly
morphed into numerous small but powerful lightning bolts that were being formed within the black cloud. From
the outside, the view was fear-provoking and there seemed to be a vacuum force within that black mass which
was trying to pull anyone not strong enough to withstand into that tempestuous electrical storm being generated as fuel for it to grow bigger.
Alicia’s heart hammered against her chest as she watched the cloud grew thicker and the atmosphere turned so
damned ominous, it was almost suffocating. Everyone looked up, eyes wide with a mixture of terror, wonder and disbelief.
Within that cloud, they could dimly make out a massive shadow moving and undulating. The roars and growls
had stopped, and the black cloud moved in a chaotic manner which is unpredictable – causing friend and foe
both to be on edge. A series of otherworldly lights, changing its hue ever so often were mixing with the black
clouds. And when the lights were gone, a shadow of a massive pair of wings appeared.
Alicia felt her heart nearly stammered to a stop. Everyone held their breaths as the black cloud slowly dissipate.
A black-as-night dragon came into view, with glowing golden eyes. The light caused its black scales to gleam as his jeweled chest scales glistened and glimmered.
“Z-zeres…” Alicia could only utter as she gazed up at the terrifying black creature. They never thought they could
ever transform into a real dragon. But they were utterly wrong because Zeres had really turn into one.
An earth-shaking rumble came from the black dragon when it growled, and the cavern trembled greatly, and little stones and pebbles were shaken loose from their positions by his sound alone.
Dinah laughed hysterically like a mad woman, spreading her arms wide as she faced the dragon.
“Hahaha, at last!!!” she screamed when all of a sudden…
The onyx dragon bared its mouth wide, showing rows of razor sharp teeth – all serrated on one side, ready to
slice the unlucky ones – and took a deep breath, its long, elegant and glistening neck curved back before letting
lose a tremendous noise which sounded like a cross between a boom and a wailing snarl. The effects were not
only seen but also felt by all who were present in the area. Alicia felt her skin crawl and the marrow of her bones shrivel up from that horrifying sound.
Another earthquake shook the cavern. The massive wall behind the dragon which seemed to be the dead end of
the large cavern broke and crumbled into pieces, as if a bomb had blasted it.
All eyes were dragged from the black dragon to the crumbling wall. They all looked confused and shocked. It
seemed, even they thought the massive wall was the dead end of this cavern and that they were inside the
deepest part of this mountain. No other path would lead outside but the entrance. So how come the wall was crumbling?
The aura was growing ever so ominous as the debris fell. The dust produced from the collapsing of the wall rose
like clouds, but everyone could see the darkness across the broken wall that even the light couldn’t reach, much
less penetrate through. They’re eyes widened, seeing that there seemed to be another abyss so massive on the
Once the dust and smoke settled, it was apparent that there was a reason why that colossal wall had to be
destroyed. On top of the debris, standing majestically – there stood a godly being.
Hellbound With You Chapter 524 – Preparation
Dinah was shocked as she looked at the man who appeared on top of the debris. The man had eyes which were
glowing like the totality of the majesty of the five Aztec suns, fierce and deadly, that it seemed enough to not only burn ones’ body, but also their spirit and soul.
This vision of glory was nothing like the majestic ebony dragon before them except his vivid golden eyes. He
neither have the form of a monster nor one of a beast, but his presence alone was enough to send all and every
weak hearted enemies fleeing for their lives. He simply had that aura of an ancient god as he stood there, unmoving.
This man really hasn’t changed. When Dinah saw him for the first time in the modern day in the Ziggurat, she
thought that this man had finally changed. It somewhat seemed that he had become more human now
compared to that last time she saw him thousands of years ago. She still remembered his monstrous gaze as he
had so effortlessly killed her, so she thought that Alexander had mellowed down after so many millennia had
passed. But now, it seemed he’s back to being that man she once knew. Or perhaps it would be more apt to say
that he never actually changed – but had his immense power and wicked strength kept hidden away – until
certain dire reasons or situations triggered him to release that awe-inspiring and horrifying power.
An army of Vampires appeared behind Alexander.
But Dinah’s shocked expression eventually changed into an evil smile.
“Oh, hello there, Alexander. We meet again.” She drawled. “But I am not planning to go easy on you this time.
Don’t worry though… just sit pretty and tight over there and in a little bit more than a candle mark, I’ll be your
master as well.” She added as she laughed, despite knowing that Alexander couldn’t hear her words.
But Abi from afar could hear her. She frowned and her beautifully elegant and arched brows furrowed slightly.
Even with this minor change in her facial expression, Alexander swung his eyes to quickly scan over Abi’s face and
dangerously narrowed those golden eyes of his. That cold aura of his condensed further, giving even more pressure to those who are nearer.
Dinah then spread her arms wide – too caught up in her own agenda, thoroughly missing out on that minor but
very key and crucial point. However, with her missing the cues would perhaps be the biggest regret in her life, even to the point of being the bane of her existence.
“Now my dragon, Zeres!!! Listen to your master and turn them all to dust as they rightfully deserve!!” she yelled,
pointing at the destroyed wall, towards Alex and the army of vampires who were with him.
The majestic creature growled, and he moved to face the direction Dinah was pointing at.
The cavern shook again as Dinah’s sardonic laugh intensified. Seeing that the dragon was listening to her every
single order drove her to behave wilder and more confident, as if she had already won the war.
“Go! My dragon!!! Do it!!” she screamed again, and the dragon spread its large, majestic wings.
The elite vampires standing behind Alexander shivered a little upon seeing a dragon with their own two eyes.
They couldn’t believe it. They all felt like they were transported back to when it this was a common scene, thousands of years ago.
Despite having Alexander on their side, they couldn’t help but gulp. Alexander was immortal and powerful but
they’re up against a real dragon now. Do they even stand a fighting chance? Can’t Alexander transform into full
dragon as well? Perhaps as how he hid his strength all these millennia, it might be that he was also hiding other
skills and secret techniques which would be brought out when only necessary? As much as they trust and believe
in Alexander, all of them were desperately hoping that what they were thinking were true.
“F*ck!! That is really an honest to goodness real dragon, damn it!!! How could we even fight such a creature?”
one of the elite vampires uttered between his breath when Raven, the leader of the elite vampire army spoke calmly.
“Calm down you bumbling idiot. Did you forget that the same man who killed the last dragon thousands of years
ago is standing right before you right now?” Raven said and the idiot vampire’s eyes lowered in shame, mortified
due to the awareness of his own idiocy. Raven was right. How could they forget the story of Alexander leading his army to defeat a dragon?
The vampire’s eyes fell on the golden-eyed man before them and an even stronger chill crept through the air causing the soldiers to react instinctively.
Alexander was dreadful when he was angry and reckless but this man in his calm and serious state was a
completely different story. He was beyond terrifying! The vampires – friend and foe alike – actually felt like he
had turned into a full dragon himself, without actually physically turning into one.
But the vampires were jolted back to the present scene that was displaying itself before all of them – and their
eyes darted back-and-forth from Alexander to the dragon. Their instincts immediately had them brace
themselves as the dragon growled once again facing them as it spread its massive wings and gave a mighty flap,
kicking up a ruckus within the cavern and causing multiple dust storms from all the dust and debris produced earlier.
“Dammit! I think he’s planning on going all volcanic on us!” the vampires gritted their teeth, bracing themselves
for the inevitable all the while, looking imploringly at Alexander, hoping that he would create a miracle as always at the last second.
Zeres, the dragon then moved his powerful wings and came shuttling at them, as its muzzle opened in
preparation to rain down fire on whoever was in its way.
The vampires’ eyes widened in horror. They waited for Alexander’s order but none came. But as everyone
subconsciously held their breaths, Abigail stepped forward and stood right in front of Alexander as if to welcome the dragon.
Hellbound With You Chapter 525 – Torn
Everyone held their breaths as the large and majestic creature opened its mouth in preparation to breath a fire
on them. Their faces registered the fear and horror they felt within their hearts as they looked at Abigail, fearlessly standing before the approaching dragon.
The dragon did not look like it was going to stop and they were fast running out of time to leave. In fact, they all
knew it was too late to make a move. No matter how fast they were, they would not be able to outrun the
dragon’s fiery breath. ‘This dragon’s fire was going to turn them all into ashes!’ the vampires thought.
The vampires looked at each other with panicked expressions. Some of them trembled at their imminent fate and
some of them subconsciously closed their eyes. In a moment, they would breathe their last.
However, a name suddenly echoed inside the cavern.
“Zeres!” Abigail called the dragon’s name and the fire didn’t come.
The dragon halted before Abigail, his golden eyes staring at her and because of that, they were able to stay in the land of the living for a bit longer.
Dinah became infuriated. She couldn’t believe Zeres stopped just because that damn girl called out his name!
“Damn it!!! Listen to me Zeres!!!” Dinah screamed, trying to get control of the dragon once again.
A loud bone-chilling groan filled the vastness of the cavern again. Zeres didn’t look like he was in pain; it was as if he was torn.
Dinah kept ordering him like a mad woman. Again and again.
“Damn, damn, damn!! Why? Why is he not listening to me?!” Dinah’s veins were almost bursting from utter
anger. Her corpse-like face distorted and became even uglier.
“I think he is trying to listen to you but it’s just that Abigail is the reincarnation of the last dragon keeper. She still
has that power and is able to affect him. Zeres is now torn between you and her. The trouble will come If he
consumes Abigail’s blood because Abigail will then have complete control of him,” Ezekiel calmly said.

Dinah shook her head in horror, unable to accept that Abigail’s presence was enough to affect the dragon she
created, the dragon who was supposed to be listening to her alone. The woman screamed but when Ezekiel bent
closer to Dinah and whispered something in her ear, the woman’s twisted face returned to normal and her anger suddenly died down.
Abigail was so busy with Zeres that she couldn’t pay attention to what Ezekiel whispered to Dinah. Or could it be
that Ezekiel took that opportunity knowing that Abigail was occupied?
The dragon who didn’t know which voice to obey, rose and aimlessly flew towards the abyss, as if it was losing its
mind. The dragon was obviously not in control of himself, as if he was a broken machine who had lost its function.
With Zeres now aimlessly flying and blowing fireballs on the walls of the abyss, the atmosphere between two armies were tense.
Everyone prepared for the battle that was about to occur.
Abi’s eyes fell on Alicia as Alex’s gaze was locked on Zeke.
For a moment, there was utter silence – the calm before the storm – before all hell broke loose.
In a blink of an eye, Alex and Zeke’s blades clashed against each other in midair, right in the middle between the
two armies. They looked at each other steadily, as if each man was weighing up their opponent, before they leapt away from each other.
Then they both leapt towards each other and this time, there was a series of attacks and parries as the two of
them crossed swords. Alex attacked with precision and confidence while Zeke defended with ease, almost as if he
knew what Alex was going to do. After a few seconds, Zeke managed to counterattack and started attacking Alex
with practised movements, while Alex blocked and deflected just as easily as Zeke had done.
While the two vampires fought each other, Raven was first to tear his gaze away from them and without wasting
another second, he yelled out an order. “Attack!!” he cried, before leaping into the enemy line.
The rogue and the elite vampires fought each other and there was utter chaos. The floor and walls of the cavern
were soon painted with blood from both sides as the room filled with bloodl.u.s.t. Everyone was fighting for their lives.
Amidst the chaos, Dinah found Alicia and Riev, who were watching the scene before them, and Dinah weaved her
way over to them with the intention of taking their lives. Dinah had snuck up behind them, a dagger in her hand,
and was about to stab Alicia when Kai jumped in between them and kicked her hard in the stomach.
Alicia and Riev turned around to see what the commotion was about and they were shocked when they saw
Dinah behind them. But then their expressions turned to relief when they saw a familiar face. The rest of Kai’s
team managed to push through the horde of rogue vampires to get to Alicia and Riev and they formed a small
circle around their weakened comrades to protect them. It seemed that he and his group entered from the other
entrance by disguising themselves as rogue vampires.
“You’re welcome,” Kai said to Alicia and Riev with a cheeky smirk before he turned to face the enraged Dinah again.
More rogue vampires came over to their spot and surrounded them all but they didn’t attack. Their eyes were on
their master and her opponent. But even so, the vampires didn’t let their guards down.
“Ha! You dare want a duel with an immortal, little pest?” Dinah snorted as she rolled her eyes at Kai.
Kai narrowed his eyes and immediately lunged at Dinah, catching her off guard and making her stumble
backwards. Kai was about to land a punch on her but a woman jumped in between and blocked his attack.
Hellbound With You Chapter 527 – Chaos
“Careful, my lady! That’s a blue-blooded vampire!” screamed the witch who came to Dinah’s aid. She rushed over,
hair flying out like a frenzied psycho, all in the hopes of getting into the good graces of Dinah.
Dinah glared angrily at Kai eyes all ablaze with fury and swiftly raised her sword with a sharp swishing sound. But
a second later, her expression became wary. She seemed to pause in her movements and deliberately lowered
her arm that held the sword the raging flames in her eyes cooling off slightly and her gaze turned shrewd.
“Deal with him!” her orders were barked out tersely at her two witch minions who gave a little jump and snapped
to attention to follow Dinah’s words which were like the law for them. It seemed the immortal woman did not
want to be wounded again. She wised-up and didn’t seem to want to repeat the same mistake in going through
the same pain she suffered in Alicia’s hands.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the cavern, Alex and Zeke continued circling one another both wary of the other
and not giving an inch of opportunity for the other to get first blood. Zeke seemed to have twice as strong. He
was able to keep up with Alex, despite Alex’s hidden power being unleashed which was evidenced in his eyes glowing golden.
For the first time, Ezekiel was finally fighting seriously. The two fought with an inhuman intensity that led those
surrounding them to be left staring stupefied at their attacks on each other. Each Herculean strike reverberated
through the hearts of those watching. Those who were watching closely felt that as if every single collision
followed by another in succession were in fact a conversation between these warriors. Both men were deadly
serious and hell-bent on getting the strike which would draw first blood and both were going at the other like
Alex had always been waiting for Zeke to unleash his real power, but he never had done so all these years until now. So why now?
Alex knew that Zeke had this powerful strength hidden within him. He could sense that massive potential just
bubbling away beneath the surface since a long time ago that Zeke had his own beast living within him. No, that
wasn’t right. Zeke was the beast itself and had absolute full control over the man and beast part of himself. This
was the first time he had let the beast out of its leash. The reason? Alex still couldn’t decipher.
The fight was so heated that there was no room for error. Alex couldn’t get a word in even if he wanted to. Well,
Alex already knew that Zeke had no plans to talk to him at all.
Alex concentrated on the fight. If Zeke wasn’t going to speak to him, then he would communicate using his
actions. Alex was on the offence again, slashing and hitting Zeke’s sword each time Zeke blocked his attack.
Alex’s next move was to bring his sword down towards Zeke’s head which Zeke blocked with his sword, but then
Alex drew his leg up and kicked Zeke in the chest before drawing his sword back and slashing Zeke in his abdomen, wounding him.
Zeke’s crimson eyes burned even brighter after being wounded and he attacked again with more vigour.
However, Alex again got the upper hand and again, Alex managed to land a kick on Zeke’s abdomen, sending
him flying backwards, hitting a pillar and breaking it. Alex was about to charge at him when suddenly, the dragon
cut in between them, creating a huge hole on the ground. The ground under Zeke broke apart and fell away,
falling into the abyss along with Zeke, leaving Alex to face the dragon.
During all the commotion, Dinah had taken the golden opportunity to furtively sneak away, leaving her minions
to deal with Kai and his army of vampires. When she saw the dragon appear without warning from the abyss, she
quickly thought of an alternative plan. She had already replenished some of her blood during this time, so she
cut her wrist to get the dragon’s attention.
Abi, who was busy fighting alongside the vampires, also saw that Zeres was back and she tried to get his
attention as well, but it was too late. Dinah had already approached the dragon and fed him her blood. That
seemed to have won Zeres over and Dinah laughed triumphantly.
Dinah climbed on the dragon’s back before crowing out triumphantly, “Kill them!” Dinah ordered and the dragon
started flapping its gigantic pitch-black wings while opening its mouth wide.
He jetted out a wave of fire towards the vampires, burning both foe and ally alike. Dinah seemed to have lost her
mind. She ordered the dragon to keep burning as if she was planning to burn everything until there was nothing
Everyone ran to seek whatever refuge they could find behind pillars, fallen beams and stones. But many had been hit by the blasts, most of them rogue vampires.
Chaos ensued. The stench was unbelievable.
All around the battlefield, small fires were burning, and thick smoke rose to the cavern’s ceiling creating a cloud of blackened haze.
The smoke combined with the light from the fires bathed the entire battlefield with a sombre dark red hue.
The only spot Zeres refused to hit with his fire was the spot where Abigail stood. This caused the mad woman
riding the dragon to screech in anger once more. She hit the dragon with her claw as she burst out in anger,
ordering him to incinerate Abigail immediately.
But at that moment, Alexander suddenly flashed before Dinah.
Dinah trembled severely, eyes widening in horror as she could not help but just freeze on the spot, looking at
Alexander. Alexander was still in human form all gorgeous and burning in fury, but he had somehow grown
In the next second, before Dinah could even blink, Alexander’s sword slashed across her neck, separating her
head from her body. Dinah’s head toppled over, falling with a sick thud onto the ground, followed by the
ungainly crumbing of her body onto the filthy ground.
Hellbound With You Chapter 528 – Mere human girl
Zeres still had Dinah’s blood coursing through his veins – thus, he was still under the control of Dinah’s blood so
despite Dinah no longer being there to give him orders, the dragon still continued breathing fire. Alex didn’t have
a choice but to find a way to deal with him. He had to send him back to the abyss before he burns everyone and everything to a crisp.
Zeres spewed fire again from his mouth and nostrils, arcing the inferno across the cavern when Alex’s blade
aimed for a cut at the dragon’s head. The dragon swerved and narrowly avoided the sharp point of his blade and
snapped his dangerously serrated teeth back at him. Alex dodged nimbly spun to his left with just enough space
to spare and brought his sword piercing through that massive pitch-black wing on the right and then dragged
his blade downwards – making a skin-crawling ripping sound that caused everyone nearby to halt their advances
in stunned surprise. The dragon’s wing was damaged, causing him immeasurable amounts of pain – which was
not unexpected as a dragon’s wing is one of the more sensitive areas, with the membranous skin stretching taut
across that bony frame. Zeres was brought to his knees by this unsuspecting pain – which was understandable as
he had never had the chance of finding out or experiencing the sharp lancing pain which crippled his mind from the tear on his wing – causing him to sway and fall over.
The dragon growled and gave a shake of its head which was unexpectedly adorable. Every pair of eyes looking
on at the scene blinked and felt taken aback at that very canine characteristic. However, when it refocussed its
blazing gaze, fully aimed at Alex, they took a sharp intake of breath as it shot its neck out all of a sudden with
jaws wide open, fully intended to snap some body part off – not caring which one. But as before, Alex easily
dodged the attack as if he had eyes at every angle of his head, fully prepared to retaliate. Alex flew towards the dark abyss and Zeres followed in his wake.
While everyone’s eyes were as wide as saucers, they watched the dragon lit up the abyss with his fire, as he
relentlessly chased after Alexander. No one seemed to notice something amiss – the fact that Dinah’s head that
had fallen to the ground had all of a sudden, moved, finding its way back to her body.
Abigail was the first to notice her. Gripping her blade, Abigail ran towards Dinah. She could no longer bear this
bloodshed. She had to end this battle now and the only way was to kill this woman with her own two hands –
giving no further chance of resurrection – this woman who still wore the face of her late mother. And kill Dinah, she would, if it was the last thing she’d do!
This was her final opportunity. She had to stab Dinah now while she was still helpless and focussed on recovering.
However, before Abi’s blade could reach Dinah, two rogue vampires blocked her.
They didn’t hesitate to attack Abigail, but their blade never reached her. Raven had appeared and slashed at
those two rogue vampires. Blood painted the ground red before Abi and her heart jarred a little, watching the
scene so close to her face and the tangy iron smell of blood floated like a mist surrounding her head, causing her
to be slightly light-headed. More rogue vampires came out to face Raven but her path towards Dinah was now cleared.
Her grip on her long, thin sword tightened, the whites showing on her knuckles and her jaw clenched stubbornly
but she dauntlessly moved a step closer to Dinah. But as she moved, an arrow swooshed before her face, barely missing her.
She turned to the direction where the arrow came from and she saw a witch with her bow, another arrow poised
and knocked, aimed directly at her heart. Abi tried to call the mists but it seemed it was impossible inside this
cavern. She tried again for the last time, hoping that she could battle that witch even in that distance.
The mists didn’t come. Abi gritted her teeth but then, she saw Alicia abruptly appearing behind the witch and
viciously slashing into her – cutting cleanly from top right to bottom left, with both hands on the hilt of her long
sword. The witch stood no chance against that move and tumbled forward in death – not even realising it until her top thudded on the ground.
Abi and Alicia held each other’s eyes for a split second as Alicia nodded at her, gratefulness and camaraderie shining in her bright eyes.
That gave Abi a boost of encouragement. But the moment she faced Dinah again, the merging was already complete.
Dinah glared at Abi.
“Oh, Abigail… so you’re going to kill your own mother?” Dinah asked, mocking her.
Abi gritted her teeth. Dinah didn’t have a weapon and Abi knew she was still reeling from pain, judging from the
different expressions that were flashing across her face. She wasn’t fully healed up yet – she might be fine on the
outside, but she could feel the connective tissues and muscles knitting together on the inside – inflicting sharp, piercing pain which she could only grit her teeth and endure.
Applying the basic skills Alex had taught her, without any preamble, Abi charged at Dinah. Dinah was caught off
guard as she never would have thought that this frail little human girl would actually dare to charge at her. It
seemed she was different now compared to the weak and helpless girl she met back in the Ziggurat.
Dinah blocked Abi’s sword with her dragon claw, but Abi didn’t falter and she attacked again. Though her attacks
were weak but she was heavy with determination. Abi’s eyes were fierce and radiating her resolve in seeing this
through. She had steeled herself and she repeated in her mind like a mantra that she will get it done. She knew it
was her lot to end this. If she wavered now, this battle would never end. She didn’t want that! She had to do it and kill this woman with her own two hands.
Her attack was blocked by Dinah’s claw again and this time, Dinah had her fall on the ground.
“Ha! What a weakling! You really dare come at me when you’re nothing but a useless weak human?” Dinah
snorted and she looked down at Abi. She raised her dragon claw, but Abi stopped it with her sword.
The vampires were prepared to come to her aid but Abi yelled, “Don’t!” causing the men to halt as the rogue
vampires engaged them once again. Raven was fighting but his attention was all on Abi. He was ever prepared to jump in and save her.
Abi knew it would be bad if Dinah continued to put distance between them again. This was her chance, and she
would NOT let it go to waste, as she didn’t know if there would ever be another chance like this ever again.
Dinah used her dragon claw to hit her sword again. She was obviously toying with her, underestimating the mere human girl before her.
“Now it’s time to get serious.” Dinah snarled, causing her face to twist into a semblance of pure evil and such
revolting mien that it even disgusted Abi, who do not judge others from their looks. Dinah slashed her paw at Abi
like it was a sword, and this time, Abi could tell that this would be a real blow. A fatal blow that her human physique could never take and survive to tell the tale.
Abi’s pulse hammered in her chest. And as Dinah attacked, she found an opening and managed to slipped to
Dinah’s side, causing Dinah to lose her balance. Abigail was quick to find the advantageous spot right behind her,
much quicker than she had ever thought she could. By the time Dinah regained her balance and turned over to
look at Abi, that weak human girl had already lunged at her, blade stretched out in front, tightly clutched and
resolute. There was no way Dinah is escaping this.
They collided and Abi shut her eyes as she felt the give of her blade as it plunged and sliced with little difficulty into the fleshy confines of Dinah’s chest.
Hellbound With You Chapter 529 – Another
Abigail was shaking. It took her a few seconds to get her bearings. She did it. She couldn’t believe she really did
it. Was it finally over? She prayed within her as she slowly opened her eyes – that everything was over now.
She didn’t dare look at the woman she just stabbed to death. Her body was still trembling.
It took her a few seconds to get her bearings. The pulse in her vein was racing, thudding in her ears as she forced
herself to move so that she could pull the sword off Dinah. However, before Abi could start pulling her blade, a
hand suddenly grabbed the back of her head, pulling her.
The hand was strong, catching the trembling Abi completely off guard. Dinah was still alive! Or was she still clinging to her dear life?
Abi immediately struggled, and the woman was shockingly strong. What worse was that the woman was already
sucking blood from the wound on Abi’s neck. Shock registered on Abi’s face. She was wounded on her neck
during their fight a while ago.
Abi struggled with all her might. But Dinah’s dragon arm was too strong for her to shake off.
Another hand grabbed Abi from behind as someone’s sword slashed Dinah’s head from behind. And finally, Abi
was freed from the woman’s grasp, pulling the blade at the same time as Raven pulled her.
Raven held Abi away from Dinah as Kai attacked the woman again. Kai was about to slash Dinah but Dinah’s claw
suddenly flew towards him. Dinah’s attack was too fast, almost as fast as Alexander’s. Dinah’s dragon claw hit
Kai’s sword, and the vampire prince was thrown away like a ragdoll, his back hitting the cavern’s wall. It appeared
that Dinah’s speed wasn’t the only thing that dramatically increased. Her strength boosted as well.
An ominous black smoke started to appear as Dinah began to laugh. Her monstrous laugh was chilling, and
everyone looked at the laughing woman in utter shock. ‘Why? Why she’s not dying yet?’ Abi could only ask
“Hahaha. At last! This power!!!” Dinah said as she continued laughing hysterically, spreading her arms wide, as if
the battle was over and that she was the victor. “I am now the true keeper!! Finally!!! The dragons are mine!!
Everyone was frozen in utter shock. What was this mad woman talking about?
Dinah began to scream in pain, but she was still laughing like a lunatic. She was looking at her dragon claw as if
waiting for something to happen. Her eyes stretched out with great anticipation.
But when her skin began to be painted black, her hysteric laughter died down. Black scales grew in her skin as her
wings began to grow as well. Dinah screamed and she fell on her knees. Her face now filled with confusion as she
watched her hands in disgust.
“No!!!” Her voice suddenly thundered. “Why?!!! Kiel!!! Why am I turning to a dragon?!!” she asked, screaming.
Intense panic and confusion were etched on her corpse-like face.
Everyone who was watching her was also confused. What did this woman think will happen? She didn’t think
she’ll turn into a dragon?! She didn’t want to turn into a dragon?
The black smoke began to consume Dinah. The same massive smoke that appeared when Zeres transformed into a dragon.
As lightning bolts began to form within the black clouds, Dinah screamed even louder, filling the vastness of the cavern.
“Kiel!!!” she roared. Her voice was now filled with hatred. “You said I wouldn’t turn into a dragon!!! You said I’ll
become a true Dragon keeper” Dinah’s voice trailed off and what replaced her voice were deep, chilling growls.
Unable to believe her eyes, Abigail could only gulp, opened her mouth, then shut it. Why? Why didn’t Dinah die?
What had gone wrong? She was supposed to be the only one who could kill immortals, but it was not happening.
Dinah transformed into a dragon instead of dying! Why?
And what’s with Dinah’s last words? Did Ezekiel tell Dinah that her blood would turn Dinah into a real dragon keeper? What was going on?!
Questions kept piling up, and Abi didn’t know what to think even anymore. She didn’t know what was going on anymore.
Raven grabbed her and they leaped away. They all knew what was coming. Dinah was transforming into a real
dragon. They should find a place to hide now. But where? Everything was already burning!
The moment Raven landed on the ground, the massive black cloud finally dissipated, and an earth-shattering rumble came next.
Another black-as-night dragon came into view.
The sheer amount of power coming from her was staggering.
Crouched in a predatory stance, the dragon’s scales glinted in the firelight and her teeth looked like they could
rip through steel. Her eyes were gold but they spoke only of darkness and death.
And then, she roared. It was the roar of a great beast that chilled everyone to their very bones. Abi could only feel
her heart freezing in her chest. What was going to happen now?
At that moment, another earthquake shook the cavern. Something huge seemed to have fallen into the abyss.
But no one could even avert their gaze from the new dragon before them because it’s muzzle was now opened in
preparation to breathe fire. She was going to burn them!
The dragon faced where Abigail stood. Raven held Abigail and leaped but the dragon followed them. Unlike
Zeres, who never aimed his fire towards Abi, Dinah was obviously aiming at Abigail. Why? Was Dinah able to control herself?
As Dinah released her fire, a shadow that was fast as a bullet swept over Abi.
The fire came but missed them. The fire landed just a couple of meters away from where Abigail stood. And as
the fire blasted on the ground, a blood-curdling growl thundered.
Abi opened her eyes and saw Alex in front of Dinah with his sword already stabbed into the dragon’s eyes.
Hellbound With You Chapter 530 – Against the dragons
The dragon wailed as Alex pushed the blade even deeper until the hilt of his sword touched her eyeball but Alex
knew that no matter how many times he slashed and stabbed these two dragons, they would not die. They bled
and growled in pain but he would not be able to kill them. It appeared that they were immortals even in their dragon forms, and this was something that was totally unexpected.
Alex didn’t have time to think of how to defeat these dragons permanently. He was too busy trying to immobilize
them. He stabbed them with his sword every chance he got to find their weakness. He went for their legs, their
wings, their heads, but even a sword in the eye didn’t do the trick.
Alex was a little hesitant to go against Zeres because he could still feel the dragon’s confusion. He could feel that
Zeres, the dragon, was just confused. His rationality and thoughts had disappeared, and he was basically just an
animal now who didn’t understand what was happening. His human nature had been drowned out and the animal instincts took over.
But this woman was different. He could see raw emotion in this dragon’s eyes. Alex could see rage and hate and
bloodl.u.s.t, emotions that were driven by her human nature. Dinah was fully conscious and entirely in control of
herself, unlike Zeres, but just like him. Alex knew exactly why that was. He was certain that it was because this
woman had drunk Abigail’s blood, the dragon keeper’s blood, and that was why she was able to keep her human
consciousness on the foreground, stomping down the dragon’s animalistic instincts from taking over.
Alex was still on Dinah, still holding onto the sword, which was deeply rooted in Dinah’s eyeball. Dinah, the
dragon, shook her head from side to side, trying to dislodge Alex from her head but Alex held on tight. With a
loud growl, she dropped down on all fours then gave an almighty push with her hind legs. She catapulted herself
upwards, wings flapping hurriedly as she tried to gather as much speed as she could as she headed towards the ceiling of the cavern.
Everyone watched as the she-dragon flew upwards, purposely smashing one side of her face on the ceiling with
the intent to squash Alexander against the hard surface. However, Alexander predicted what she was going to do
and he swiftly dodged, jumping from the dragon’s cheek towards her head, catching hold of one of the
protruding scales. The frustrated dragon then dove, spiraling toward the abyss as she shook her head vigorously, trying to shake Alexander off of her.
Alex held on, managing to catch hold of his sword again. He gripped it hard and he used it as an anchor against
the sharp, sudden movements of the dragon, even hoping that all her movements would help him dislodge it
from her eye. Unfortunately, it didn’t help. His sword was well and truly stuck.
As they spiraled down into the abyss, Alex could hear Zeres’ m.o.a.ns, which meant they were getting close to
hitting the ground. Alex instantly knew what Dinah was planning – to smash her head on the ground to bury Alex
and herself under the rubble before letting loose a hot, fiery blast of fire. Alex prepared himself for this and held onto his sword until the very last second.
Before the dragon’s head could touch the ground, Alex let go of his sword and jumped away, landing gracefully
on the ground in a crouching position, facing the she-dragon. He watched as she smashed her head on the rocky
ground before she breathed out a fiery breath, melting the rocks around her. Dinah raised her head from the
molten rubble, and Alex saw that she didn’t even suffer any damage from the collision. She looked fine, apart
from the fact that Alex’s sword was still completely pierced through one of her eyes.
So, while Alex was safe from that attack, he no longer had his weapon.
Alex could feel Dinah’s power. This woman, this dragon, was very powerful. Her power gave him a sense of deja
vu. Alex felt that her power seemed to be similar to that of Lexus when Lexus had gone berserk after Abi-
No, he couldn’t think of that now. He had to keep those kinds of thoughts at bay. He looked at Dinah again and
he confirmed his thoughts. Her power felt similar to Lexus’ strength, and the difference between her and Zeres’
power was great. That difference was most likely because, unlike Zeres, this woman was completely evil. She was
attacking to destroy, to kill. She was a real monster from hell with no remorse and no conscience and because of that, she didn’t hold back. That was why she was that powerful.
For a moment, the thrill of fighting against something this powerful began to fuel the fire within Alex. He had not
fought a real battle like this for thousands of years, and he felt the excitement flow through his veins. However,
he fought this feeling because that wasn’t why he was here. All this time, he had been focusing so hard not to
lose himself and let himself be consumed by the thrill of the fight because if he did, he might forget the most
important thing that he had to do. He wasn’t here because he wanted a fight or to defeat the most powerful
creature on Earth. He was here for one thing – to keep his dear wife, Abigail, safe. There was no way he would lose her again. Defeating these dragons would be meaningless if…
He remembered how he was when he fought Lexus. Back then, he lost sight of everything and everyone but the
dragon before him that when the battle was over, he was shocked by the mountain of dead bodies around him.
Aside from that fear, Alex also couldn’t fully focus himself on the fight because he was watching Abigail all these
times. He was beyond wary, careful as if he knew that something might happen the moment his complete
attention would be focused on his fight against the dragons.
