I stood there, frozen as I stared at him in disbelief.

"Did you...kill him?" I asked shakily, watching as his eyes darted to mine.

"Yes" His deep voice replied.

Letting out a shaky breath, my mind started racing.

Why would he do that?

He's a murderer.

He'll kill you too.

"Why?" I pushed, hoping that he won't be angry.

"He hurt you." He stated as his eyes stared deeply into mine.

And somehow, his cold stare felt genuine.

He actually thought killing was the only solution.

"Oh." I replied, taking a slow step back.

His jaw immediately clenched and his pupils dilated under the moonlight.

"You're scared." He said.

"No.." I lied.

He took a step closer and instinctively, I took another step back.

His eyes fell to the floor. When he looked back up, my eyes widened as there wasn't any white left in his.

"I'm a monster, aren't I?" He said more than asked.

Then a dark chuckle escaped his lips.

It sounded sinister as it went on, then he stopped suddenly.

"Do you know what it's like, to never be loved?" He said, stepping closer.

"To crave it so much, that you'd kill to have it?" He continued, taking another step closer.

My breathing picked up as he looked at me. With every step he took forward,

I took one backward.

Until, my back hit the door.

He closed the distance between us, placing his hands on either side of my head.

"I killed him, for you." He said coldly.

"I never asked you to." I whispered, closing my eyes as tears welled up.

"I'd do it again." He finished.

He took his hand and ran it along my face, ignoring my flinch.

He held my cheek, giving it a slight squeeze. A signal that I should open my eyes.

When I opened them, his eyes were back to normal. His silver pupils replaced the black.

"I won't hurt you, Blair." He said, his emotionless face was in place, but his voice was gentle.

I looked at him for a while and he did the same, wiping away stray tears as they fell.

We stayed like that for god knows how long before I spoke.

"Please don't do that again." I whispered, my voice cracking from all of the crying.

He didn't respond. He just continued staring at me.

"Lucifer, promise me." I repeated.

Still nothing.

I sighed, closing my eyes and turning around to go back inside.

His hands slammed against the door behind me, making me scream in shock.

"Don't." He said. "Don't leave me. I...need you." His voice sounded strained.
