I woke up and happily walked into the bathroom to do my morning routine.

But while brushing my teeth, a grin appeared on my face as I heard a familiar engine revving outside.

Quickly finishing up, I ran down the stairs, skipping the last step and landing loudly at the bottom.

"Wish you were that excited to see me." I heard Dale mumble as I passed.

Laughing, I left a kiss on his head before walking outside.

The cold morning breeze came in contact with my warm skin, making me shiver.

I looked up and my eyes locked with dark silver ones.

He's in a bad mood.

"Hey." I said as I approached.

He was leaning against his motorcycle staring at me blankly.

"Hello." He said shortly, making me shake my head.

"Grumpy is back." I mumbled, rolling my eyes.

He narrowed his eyes at me. A grim expression taking over his face.

Instead of cowering away like I wanted to, I stepped forward and hugged him.

My heart raced as I waited for him to push me away.

But he didn't.

He just stood there frozen in place for a while before placing his arms around me.

He leaned his head down and rested it on top of my head before sighing.

"What the fuck are you doing to me?" He asked.

"Hugging you?" I replied stupidly.

He stayed silent, probably laughing hysterically at me in his mind.

Then he pulled away slightly and I put my hands on his chest.

His eyes dropped to the ring on my finger before he looked back up at me.

His eyes were now light grey again. They were cloudy but still showed no emotion.

"I'm leaving for a while." He said, staring off into space.

"Going as in coming back later?" I asked and he shook his head before sighing.

"I'll be gone for months." He said and my eyes widened.

"What? Where? Why? How? When?" I asked all at once.

"Business." He replied shortly.

"What business, Lucifer?" I asked seriously, trying to step back but he held me in place.

"Family Business." He responded, sounding more and more agitated as he spoke.

"Oh yeah? And what might that be?" I pressed on, watching as his eyes became darker all over again.

"That's enough." He said, his voice ringing in my ears.

Immediately, tears started forming in my eyes. They wasted no time sliding down my chin.

"I just don't want you to get hurt." I said softly, looking away from him.

I heard him sigh and slowly, his hand reached up to my face.

He held in, wiping away the stray tears with his thumb.

"I know." He said, his voice deep and husky.

Another tear dropped and he looked at it before leaning down and kissing it away.

Butterflies erupted, dancing all the way up my spine.
