Heart of a beast 2 Episode 35 & 36

(Love is the word💓)
BOOK 2 📚
❤Kayla’s POV❤️
I checked my pocket for the key and found it just as I left it, I sighed in relief.
I found my way to the taxi park, I walked up to one and gave him the address, he permitted me to go in and hit the road..
As we journeyed, I couldn’t help but feel the race in my heart, it was more like Lucinda was right behind me or had found out and was searching for a way to prevent me from succeeding with it.
I pat my pocket and felt the key, I was relieved again..
Melvin would be so glad about this.. the hardest part has been achieved, what’s left is going to the house, opening the door and returning the Luvi.. I sighed happily when I thought of how close we were in getting our freedom.
I turned, as if trying to catch a glimpse of Lucinda running after us..
“Um sir, please can you speed up a little more?” I asked and he gave me a suspicious look from the rearview before speeding up.
“Thank you!” I said, feeling a bit relieved cos duh, Lucinda is a witch, she doesn’t need a car to overtake or get to mere human, she doesn’t even need to come or show her self.. just a spell would do.
But considering the fact that I was with the Luvi, she would need more than just spells to get to me, maybe a physical appearance after all.
Or better still, she could spoil my chances of fulfilling my motive with the key.
Thinking about it, my palm reached for my pocket again and I found the key. To be more safe and sure, I should keep it with the Luvi..
I took the necklace off my neck and slipped it into my pocket, where I had the key but it didn’t fit well enough cos my phone and Melvin’s tube-necklace was in it and the pocket wasn’t all that big enough to contain all four items.
I took out my phone and the tube necklace, leaving it on the empty space beside me, I left the Luvi and the key in place of them, inside my pocket. It went in perfectly.
I grabbed my phone, placing it on my lap, I picked up the necklace and was about putting it on when I noticed that it was empty..
The tiny liquid that was left in the tube could not be seen, not even the tiniest was empty and only the transparent tube could be seen and looked through..
Why do I feel so worried and disturbed?
I stared at it for a moment before it registered fully..
💙Melvin’s POV 💙
My fingers dug deeper into the sand, my eyes shutting as different deafening sound passed through the interior organs in my body.. I didn’t feel pain, just total discomfort that was worse than pain..
It caused a whole different feeling in me.
My fingers went deeper into the sand, as if I was clinging on it for support, and with every thrust, I tried moving my body forward but it was as if I was being glued to the ground..
Just seconds ago, I had felt well, strangely energetic and lively, it was like a good feeling, like the day I was going to get off that curse. I was glad cos I needed all that energy for the trip. I was coming out of the cave to get a drink from the small lake behind the cave and had barely taken a step out when a loud electric-like sound swooshed through my ear and the next thing, it aggravated to more disturbing noises that sent me to the floor.
I felt weak, empty. My inside felt like there was nothing in it, like a vast area with just air, I felt light and lifeless but still, my body wouldn’t comprehend with the movement.
I grumbled repeatedly, trying to get the annoying blaring sound off, my eyes shut as the discomfort spread all over me. I groaned and grumbled!
I knew I was someone and alive when I opened my eyes and found my body but that I wasn’t, when I shut my eyes and felt the emptiness and weightlessness that it contained and yet, couldn’t make me move..
I could say discomfort was an understatement to what I was feeling.
Somehow, I knew what it meant and feared for myself..
But I can’t let it go just like that, at least for Kayla.
♥️Kayla’s POV♥️
The taxi parked and I quickly gave the cabbie his payment and dashed off towards the woods, I got there, ran into the the woods and head for the cave through the usual route. I was just many steps afar when I sight his figure on the floor.. My fears aggravated and I hurriedly covered the steps and got to him.
“Melvin?!” I called in terror, blood rushing to my face.. “Are you okay?!”
He said and when I took his hand, he grasped it from me and covered his ears with his palm..
“Make it st..op! Make it..stop!” He grumbled, his voice filled with so much agony and discomfort.
” Make what stop?” I asked but he said nothing. “Melvin! What’s happening?!” I placed my palm lightly on his, not feeling the usual shock.. his eyes flung open and he stared at me, unshed tears hanging at his tearduct, staring at it brought tears to my eyes as the only answer to what was happening rang in my head.
“Melvin,” I sniffed. ” I-I got the key! I got the key to your mom’s room! We can now access the Luvi holder and return it,” I took the key out and placed it on his palm, his eye balls rolled to it. I knew he was contending so much, his look told it. I placed the key on his palm so he could feel it.
“See?” I said, giving him a smile, beneath the fear I held.
“It’s.. late for me, Kay. I feel like it’s my end already,” he said, his breathing heavy.” Ugh!” He grumbled again, twitching his face like he was trying to get rid of something.
“Melvin!” My tear dropped as I took his palm in mine and he gripped it tight, they trembled as red veins popped out of it..
“There have to be something, anything that we can do! I can go back to your house and try to put the Luvi in it’s holder, I can save you!,” I made to stand but his grip restricted me.
“I fear that it’d be too late, Kay. I’m very close to death already, I-I can feel it..,” he stuttered. “We can’t lose both our lives, it’s too late for me but not for you! One of us have got to live!” ,He twitch his face deeply, as he talked and his hand trembled more.. He gave me a knowing look and I began shaking my head, tears pouring down..
“The Luvi- there’s an opening in it, it has pins that could kill me and save you if you poke me with it, you don’t know this cos I asked Priola to-
“She told me!” I cut him off “but I’m not doing it”
” You have to!” He tightened his grip on my palm “We can’t let all those effort go to waste, we can’t lose at the same time, Kay! It’s my end already but not yours, there’s still time to save yourself, so do it before-” he paused, grumbled loudly with his eyes shut, tears dropped from them. He opened them. “Do it Kay!” He said with what I’d say was the rest of his dexterity.
“We promised each other Melvin, we said we’d be in this together until the very end-
“This is it. It’s the end for me and if you don’t save yourself, everything! Everything we’ve toiled for would be a waste! Save yourself and the rest of us that are left, I’m begging you! You have to do it now, Kay-
“B-but how can I kill you when I’m Inlove with you? How can-
“Goddammit Kay! Just do it already! Please!” He said, his palm trembling.
I shut my eyes and cried for a brief moment, I opened them, sniffed and gave him a nod..
I took my palm from his and brought out the Luvi from my pocket.
With shaky hands, I reached for the locket and opened it, the pins were in it, all bright and glistening under the sun. My palm trembled as I took one of the pins, it fell from my shaking hand and I picked it up.
I shifted the pointy part to Melvin’s flesh as fresh tears ran from my eyes all over, blurring my vision, I wiped them with the back of my palm and sniffed, but they poured out all over again..
I put the tip on Melvin’s skin, ready to sink it into his flesh when a light wind blew past us, shifting my attention to something else, a part of Melvin’s cloth pulled aside and I caught sight of something tattooed on his body.
It was an inscription with thick black ink, thicker than a tattoo’s.
I read it; LOVF.
LOVF as in LOVE??
BOOK 2 📚
❤Kayla’s POV❤️
“Love!” I mumbled under my breath, staring at the inscription as my thoughts diverted quickly to the past..
This was the message, Priola had said the dots were trying to pass a message to Melvin and I, message that could free us..
“Kayla! W-what are you doing!?” Melvin voice shook me back to reality. I stared at his face and threw the pin to the floor.
“I’m not killing you, Melvin!” I said.
“No, you-
“No! I’m not doing it cos I love you and I know you love me too, right?”
“I do but this is not the time-
I cut him off as my body lowered to meet his and my lips met his in a kiss..
At that moment, I felt my body wanting to do more..
I’ve been in love with this guy without even knowing..
I fastened my lips deeply on his as I deepened the kiss, his lips slowly correspond and slowly, I didn’t feel the movement from his side anymore. I pulled away his face fell sideways, his eyes were shut and tears trickled down my cheeks..
I checked his pulse and he wasn’t breathing, I fell to the ground, crying out loudly.
👺Lucinda’s POV👺
The victory smirk remained on my lips as my eyes lingered on the calendar resting beautifully on my desk. I rotated the swivel chair; moving it slowly in a way that my gaze could still be on the calendar.
I wasn’t just staring at the calendar but at the marked date, the marked date I had been very much anticipating as the months ran by..
Finally, it’d be over and in a few seconds, just a few more seconds I’ll finally be able to rule everything, every damn thing I’ve always wanted.. The hindrance won’t be there any longer as it’d be useless to them.
“Ahh!” I breathed out in explosive happiness, resting my head on the headrest and letting my hair fall. I couldn’t contain the joy inwardly any longer so I had to breath it out.
It wouldn’t have been as hard as this if that stupid necklace hadn’t gotten in the way, I’d have gripped and taken over everything I wanted but the stupid necklace had to come in and disorganize things.
Mom had said there was nothing that could be done to destroy its powers.. it wasn’t stronger than us, I could boastfully say that nothing was. The Luvi on it’s own was just a superior to a very few of our powers and abilities but in the end, it’s powerless cos it’s more like little, very little compared to us.
And it had been the hindrance to my purposes but all that was coming to an end now.. I’ll be the one to wipe all of them, any living thing they possess, off this Earth and take over..
My long awaited wish is finally coming to pass. It’s not like it’s the first time tho but it definitely was the first one that had made me encounter some little issues, it was the first tiring task I had embarked on.
And above all it was the first I had done on someone I was formerly in love with that had betrayed me and it pained me more that it had to come with some issues..
If this turns out just as I want; which I have the highest hopes that it would then reality won’t be an issue at all..
I jammed my lips in a tight smile before standing up, sending the swivel chair to the right in a swift push..
I walked to the door and pulled it open and almost immediately, bumped into my clumsy stupid secretary who spilled the coffee she was carrying on a saucer, on my pants..
She gasped, seeing me and the mess she had made out of my lower cloth.. Her eyes and mouth wide open, she stared speechlessly and unbelievably at me and the next second, she was on the floor and her knees, begging for Mercy as her two palms rubbed each other violently.. her lips moving rapidly as words of apology flood out from them.
I crouch to her, a smile on my face.. it was surprising that even within me, I wasn’t affected.. obviously, today was going to be a great day and I wasn’t letting anything ruin or change that.. our gaze met and she quickly shut her eyes, words of apology coming out more rapidly.
Well, they never dared exchange eye contact with me. I wasn’t the overall superior here but I got so much fear and respect from them, regardless of who they were.
I gave her a smile.
“Open your eyes, Lisa,” I said and her eyes slowly flung open, the fear very evident in them. She stilled after noticing my smile.. I ordered her to stand and she did.
“Take off your pants” I said.
“W-what?” She stuttered.
” You want me to repeat myself?” I asked and she shook her head negatively and repeatedly. “Since I’d be looking ridiculous cos of my pants that you ruined then it’d only be fair that you look the same as well. Don’t you agree, sweetie?” I asked and she pushed her head down, sniffing in tears. “You don’t?” I repeated.
“I-I do” she stammered.
“Good. Now I want you to look at me as you take them off. Can you do that, dear?” I asked and she nodded, her head slowly moved upward and she stared at me, our gaze met and she looked away, I pushed them back to meet mine, my index finger on her chin and tilting her head upward. “I’m waiting”
She sniffed again and her hand moved to her trouser (pants), they shook as they moved to the zip and she was about undoing it when I stopped her by placing my palm on hers.. her eyeballs rolled to look at me and I smiled as I used my thumb to wipe her tears..
“Today is a very happy day for me, Lisa, so tears is something I don’t want to see. And since taking your pants off is what is causing those tears then you can just keep them” I said and was about walking away..
” No miss Lucy, I’d take it off right now! I promise I won’t cry, please!” Her voice stopped me and I smirked.. I greatly missed that wicked me that would’ve taken advantage of this moment but again I remembered my promise, nothing was going to ruin today for me.
“No, Lisa it’s fine, really. It was a mistake anyway, you can leave work now and take an off for tomorrow and next. Don’t worry I’m not firing you, neither am I reducing your salary” I said and she gave me a surprised look. “I told you today is a happy day for me, I wasn’t bluffing!” I gave her a smile and continued my journey..
“Okay, everyone listen up! You all have been working really hard lately that you barely have time for your families and coupled with how great I feel today, I’m giving you guys a two days break. No work and no reduction in salary!” I said through the speaker and the next moment the once quiet building erupted with loud gasps and soft surprised whisper.
“Don’t get too curious and start packing up, your break starts in about five minutes!” I said, dropped the microphone and head back to my office to grab my bag.
I walked into my office and got to my table, I was about grabbing my bag when a slight darkness enveloped me and the room, I looked through the window with a blank expression and found the once bright sky, darkened..
A hard breath passed through my nostril.
I stared at the sky and it suddenly brightened up again, the sun showed up again strangely and a water droplet hit my face. The next moment, without a single warning, it began to rain and my eyes popped wider at the sight.
“No!” I shook my head as I stepped away from the window, I grabbed my bag in one swift attempt and hurried out of the building.
I’ve gotta stop them!
