"And what do you mean by that old woman?" The Death lord asked his birth mother with a lopsided grin on his face.
In the house of the Death lords, their mothers were never with them as their mother were always sent away as soon as they gave birth to the child of the Death lord.
The Death lord has never for once called his mother, mother not by chance. When he turned eighteen, he saw his mother for the first time and his father had told him, she was just a means to give birth to him and not his mother, since then he referred to his mother as old woman.
"I have been here for a week now and I've seen the way your look at her, all though you threaten her and make her fear you, you smile a lot when you see her even if you don't realise it. I know that look my dear child and I'd tell you, the more you threaten her, the more she'd go away from you, that's for sure." His mother said.
The Death lord frowne
After getting her first pay, Ella went home for the first time after a month. She had three days for resting before resuming back.She couldn't believe she survived a month in the royal mansion without being killed after all the almost death encounter she had. She rushed to get her bag, so that she could leave the royal mansion as soon as possible before the Death lord finds her and reminds her she'd die soon as he always does.She couldn't believe she wouldn't be seeing him for three days and for once, she wouldn't be walking in fear anymore, that feeling alone was priceless to her.She missed Mimi so much that she couldn't wait to see her friend after a month. Once she got her bag from her room, she left the royal mansion hoping to not be stopped by anyone and told the Death lord needed her presence.Once she got back to Mimi's apartment, she opened the door. She heaved a sigh when a fresh air filled her
Mimi wondered what Ella meant by she just messed up. Ella face palmed herself as she remembered her dream.How could you Ella? How could you have a dirty dream like that of a man who wants to kill you? She asked within herself as she began to cry.Mimi didn't understand what the sudden tears was all about. Did Ella dream about her parent? Mimi thought."What's wrong Ella?" Mimi asked her with concern laced on her tone.Ella cried out loud the more, she was more embarrassed and ashamed of herself as she remembered the dream. She wondered why she had a dream like that of all bad dreams she could have had. She has never fantasize about the Death lord like the rest of the other girls so why was she having a weird dream like that."It's over Mimi!" She said.Mimi wondered if she was fired from her job. Then Mimi thought again, getting fired from being a maid in t
The two royal guard who infiltrated the Death lord office opened their eyes slowly to a dark room illuminated with blue Neo light. Taking a swift glance at the room, they remembered the place to the be interrogation rooms for infiltrators.Both men heart beat erratically as they saw three men dressed in all black with gun on their hands standing in front of them. Both men panicked, they knew the consequences for being caught and now they were doomed. They've come to meet their end.Cyprus came into the room with the Death lord, once the infiltrators saw the Death lord, their eyes widened and they heart pounded so loud. The Death lord footstep could not be heard but Cyprus footstep was heard.Once the
"My name is Lucas and the man who just died name is Gideon. We are both from the kingdom of Somia," the man said."What?" Cyprus gasped. The kingdom of Somia was one of those kingdom the Death lord had conquered long ago but some of its people escaped."Somia?" Th Death lord asked again wanting to confirm if he heard the right word. He never expected Somia to rise again after the raid on their kingdom. He was the one that beheaded the king of Somia. He never expected those that ran away to plan for revenge."How foolish of them to think they would easily win against me. I am more than the one thousand people of Somia and a punch from me would take away their life in a second," The Death lord said in anger. He clenched and unclenched his fist, wanting to punch someone that moment.
When Ella got the message that the Death lord requested she returned back to the mansion, she became furious, she couldn't believe he was that wicked to actually demand she returned back after her first day off.It was supposed to be the days she rested and recuperated but she was deprived of it because of a monster.As she walked out of the apartment with Mimi on her trail, she had a scowl in her face. She wished she had the power to kill the Death lord."You should be happy, not just anyone got to see the face of the Death lord you know, take me as an example," Mimi said.Many only heard about the Death lord but in reality they hadn't seen him. Most ladies saw posters of the Death lord but his face was never shown, but the ones that have seen
Ella thought her ears could be deceiving when she heard the last statement of the Death lord.She belonged to no one, most especially him, she said within herself. She was finding it hard to breath from the close proximity of the Death lord.The Death lord swiftly inhaled the delicious scent from Ella's skin, he felt the urge to nuzzle his nose on her neck and bite on her skin lightly.Ella stumbled back lightly, almost loosing her balance but she held still. She bit on her bottom lips with her eyes staring at her heels.The Death lord noticed how uncomfortable she was and for some reason he felt a tinge of pain in his chest. He remembered his mother's word; maybe she was right, he said within himself.Placing his finger on Ella's lip, he removed her bottom lips from her mouth. "Don't do that," He whispered. Ella felt a jolt of electricity down her spine when the Death lo
Ella felt the urge to laugh out loud at the Death lords statement. She felt the Death lord might be sick or the person in front of her could be an imposter. Suddenly she shouted, "An imposter! An imposter!" The Death lord quickly placed his palm on her mouth, keeping her shut.Ella struggled to get out of the Death lords grip and she tried biting his palm which he used to cover her mouth too. The death lord was amazed by her fierce attitude, he wondered where she suddenly got the strength from and he wondered why she was shouting."What's wrong with you?" He asked her.After some seconds, he removed his palm from her mouth. "Why were you screaming?" He asked her."You are not the Death lord and I will expose you!" She said and screamed once more, "An
The sound of his name coming from Ella's mouth brought goosebumps on his skin. He felt a chilled breeze graze him and all he saw was paradise.His name sounded so sweet coming from her mouth, never had he been called so nicely before. Her rhythmic voice would obviously take away any pain in this world.Ella lashes fluttered and the Death lord fell in love with her eyes once again. His eyes glancing at her face, enjoying them as if they were delectable food or sweet drinks.Ella suddenly felt insecured from the look she got from the Death lord, she wondered if she had something on her face. "Is...there something on my face?" She asked him."Call my name one more time," he requested in a soft and calm voice. Ella wondered if he had hearing issues to not have heard her earlier. She was starting to get irritated by his behavior."Francis." She called his name out once more. The Death lord clos
