In Hell, Luke and his father stood at the patio of the high tower in silence. The pitch black sky was spread wide as the icy cold breeze blew across them.
"Tell me how can I be of your service Lucian?" Satan asked slyly even though he knew why exactly Luke was here.
Luke pulled out the piece of paper he had found in his room and spoke, "I assume you have an idea as to why I am here," Satan took the paper from his hand and chuckled after reading this. It was a note Lilly had left behind for Luke. It read-
You'll find me again after the deal I have made.
"I know Lillian made a deal with you, a wish perhaps. Where's her soul?" Luke asked as his eyes burned with the question.
"I believe somewhere peaceful. Why do you ask?" Satan asked nonchalantly and saw Luke grit his teeth, "Tell me what you have to offer if I get her soul to you. You do know finding her soul wasn't easy and I don't do things for free."
So he was right, Luke thought to himself. Lillian had made some deal with his father and Satan had her soul. One way it had lightened his heart that there was hope of finding her and on the other hand he didn't have time for a chit-chat.
After a person died, the soul would float for a minute between the dimensions before it would be sent to the Heaven or the torturous place called Hell. Once this was done, it would take sometime for the soul to be condemned for eternity. And right now Luke was running out of time.
"Lillian made a last minute deal to see you before her soul would turn to dust like Ace's did. But I being your dotting and thoughtful parent," Satan drawled those words and continued, "Thought of giving you more than a glance that is only if you agree to my terms."
"What do you want me to do?" Luke asked his father carefully knowing well that his old man had already thought this situation through.
"Hmm let me think," Satan said tapping his chin for few seconds and then spoke, "If you agree to the following I'll help. You'll be taking my position here in Hell and from now on this will be your home, of course you can visit the living world. Though it doesn't mean I'm giving up my power. We will have family bonding's together and I will be the one to name your child. That's it," and the wind blew again in different direction.
Turning to his father, Luke raised his brow, staring at the man initially thinking he was joking but he wasn't. He wondered if Satan missed being a father to him and was eager to get him on his good side. It seemed like he wanted to amend things not that he was against it but it was surprising.
"Deal," he said agreeing to it.
"And a hug," added Lucifer once Luke had agreed.
"Don't stretch your luck," Luke rolled his eyes as he began walking inside, "Where do you keep the souls?" he asked.
"You'll find it in your room," Satan replied following Luke closely as the exited the room. He had a room here? Luke was surprised, "You would know if you visited me," Satan retorted childishly, "You do know a soul requires a body and it can't float long."
"That's not a problem. I asked Merol to retrieve Lillian's body before I came here," Luke replied calmly.
When Luke reached his room he was glad his father didn't follow him. As he pushed the door and stepped inside, he found Lillian standing near the fireplace.
She stood there quietly in a white floor-length robe, watching the fire as it reflected the light on her face. When she turned towards Luke, she felt her heart race.
Luke noticed her flushed cheeks even with the little light. Her hair was let down and her eyes stared at him. Both of them took quick steps towards each other until they embraced each other.
He held her tightly in his arms, scared she would disappear like before. He breathed in, basking in the scent and presence of his woman. He pulled back only to crash his lips on hers and Lillian gladly accepted the kiss, clutching his arms as he stole every single breath away from her.
When he pulled back he ran his thumb over her lips and then her cheek.
"You're here," he breathed the words and Lilly smiled at it.
"I'm sorry for making you worry," she apologized as he pulled her into his arms again.
Worry? He thought, hell was going to break loose if she wasn't standing in front of him right now.
"I'm glad you made the deal with my father. Were those your proposition? Our child name and all?" Luke asked her and felt her nod her head, "I see. You sure did give me a heart attack there. A little heads up in the future would be great darling if you plan to make a deal though I doubt you'll require it."
"I'm sorry...but what can I do?" Lillian asked cheekily, "I'm the vampire kings wife. Don't judge me," and she grinned widely before Luke lowered his head for a peck of kiss.
"If that is so it couldn't be avoided, right darling," Luke replied with a grin on his face.
Satan who was resting on his chair, completed his drink as endless time passed by. He then got up to walk outside, followed by one of his servants.
"Are you going for a walk, Master?" The creature asked but was ignored by the Hell Lord.
"What do you think of turning back time?"Satan asked with a smile making the creature gawk at him.
"Never mind," he said placing his hands in his trouser pockets, "My son has reunited with his lovely wife. I think its time I went to my queen," he replied slyly before disappearing in the air.
