hen Dru opened her eyes the following morning she realised she wasn’t in her own bed, and therefore last night hadn’t been some terrifyingly weird nightmare, it had been real. She made to move but the pain brought her up short, she hurt all over.
She was wearing ivory coloured satin pyjamas, and the cream coloured bedding was clean. She slid the pyjama top to the side to reveal a place which hurt, teeth marks, a bruise still swollen, she knew she was covered in these, there wasn’t an inch of her that didn’t hurt. As she looked round she realised she wasn’t in the same room she had been in the night previously.
Then her eyes fell on Lucifer, sat on a Queen Anne armchair on the other side of the room from the bottom of the bed she was on.He was studying her intently, his chin resting on one hand, his leg slung casually over the arm. Dru lay and watched him, not moving. Lucifer stroked his chin thoughtfully. Neither of them spoke. Neither of them broke eye contact.
His shirt was open to the waist, exposing his beautifully toned torso but right now the only thing Dru felt was fear. Was she now stuck in this world of debauchery? Jesus had said to enter it to pull Lucifer out, but what if he pulled her in and she couldn’t escape? “I couldn’t fathom why I got so angry at Tao. Last night in the club I could have quite happily tortured and killed the two of you,” he began. Dru felt her eyes widen with fear and she didn’t seem to be able to stop them. Lucifer's brow furrowed and his eyes showed concern.
He moved suddenly toward her which made her scamper up the bed with a scream. He crouched on the bed next to her, she knew her fear was exciting him, she turned her head away from him and closed her eyes, just hoping that if he were going to kill her, he'd make it quick. “... then I realised, it was jealousy” he said stroking a curl back behind her ear, she winced at his touch, too scared to open her eyes. She had seen first hand how he could go from calm to murderous in a second and she didn’t trust what he was going to do next.
“I haven’t felt jealousy in thousands of years, which is why I brought Tao here last night, determined to overcome that jealousy” he said and she felt him move at the side of her and winced again. This was it, he was going to kill her because he was jealous. He had probably already killed Tao. However she felt him lie at the side of her, he stroked her cheek, she inadvertently pulled away from the caress.
“You are never, ever to want another man, last night was the last time I will let another man touch you, you are mine.” he said finally, making himself comfortable at her side. She opened her eyes then and turned to look at him. Lucifer was lying on the bed next to her with his arms folded and the most innocent of smiles on his face. She had no idea what to say, so she nodded which caused her to wince from the bite bruising. “I left those there to remind me what a beast I have been to you,” he said, gently raising himself up and leaning on an elbow, he leaned in slowly and kissed the bruise on her neck which immediately vanished.
He reached up slowly again and stroked her cheek with the palm of his hand while tracing kisses to the other bruises on her neck. “Last night I said you need to be fucked properly” she winced at the word. He paused momentarily, “I realise I was wrong, you need to be seduced properly,” he slid the pyjama top off her shoulder, waiting for her to wince again. When she didn’t, he started to kiss the bruises off her arms, and across her upper chest, before sliding his hands inside the pyjama top and undoing the buttons, Dru winced, he waited for her to relax before continuing kissing away her pain.
Lucifer slid the pyjama top off and gently leaned her forward making his way round her back, there wasn’t an inch of her body he hadn’t bitten. Making his way back round to her front, across her belly as he got to her left breast he stopped and waited for her to protest, she looked at him, he was smiling like a child with a new toy, he had a new feeling, he was adapting to it and enjoying it. She placed her hand on his cheek, then slid it round the back of his head pushing his mouth onto her breast, he kissed the bruise away and gently sucked the nipple, causing her to gasp, she threw her head back enjoying the sensation.
He moved swiftly onto the other breast, kissing the bruises away and gently sucking the nipple, Dru cried out in ecstasy, he silenced her with a deep kiss on her lips, that’s when she realised, he was trembling, it was the first time they'd kissed. He lay her head back on the pillow, then pulled her over so she was on top of him, she was in control.
