Two days had passed and Daniel had not left his room. Mona and Andy sat together at Daniels dining table in tense silence.
"Andy we can't stay here anymore we have to go to the safe house." Mona Said without making eye contact.
"I know Mona. But we can't force Dan out of his own home. Definitely not like he is now."
Mona looked to the ground. "This is all my fault Andy. I should have never came to either of you. I should have just let you both live your lives."
Andy got up out of his chair and stood in front of Mona, her eyes still on the floor. He knelt in front of her and took her chin in his hand, tilting her head up to make contact with him.
"Mona when you first found me I was passed out drunk in my house. I was an ass hole to you for the first day because I didn't realize then that you were really saving me from myself."
"Mona the day I left my family I was running off to a motel to commit suicide. Alexandra stopped me before I swallowed the pills and told me I had a higher calling. To help people like me. So I listened. You may not know this but you have to go through training to be a reaper it's really seems strange. But within the third day of my training I had already become more powerful than my trainer, and he HATED me for it. Reapers don't have to be pure souls. Most of us were once mortals so we still feel all the emotions that mortals do. He tore me down. Made me feel like I was worthless shit in hopes that I would become less powerful. I believed him. Once my training was over I got my house in the village and I also found alcohol and I never lost it. I was a powerful disgrace." Andy cupped Mona's face in both his hands. "But then you found me and told me my brother was back. You turned my world upside down and now I can't think of a way that I can thank you enough for that." He pressed his forehead against hers, in the way that they had before Lucifer. His breathe was hot against Mona's face, but it no longer smelled of alcohol. As the hair on the back of her neck stood up she realized she would never get used to that feeling. "I love you Mona. I love you for saving me from myself and I love you for stopping at nothing to save my brother from the devil. I love you for being good despite being brought up from evil. I love everything about you."
Mona smiled and wrapped her arms around his neck. "I love you Andy. I didn't realize it then but ever since you handed me that god awful lumberjack coat I was in love with you. Everything about you. " She grinned and pulled her head back to playfully squeeze his cheek. "Ass holeness and all." She began to giggle hysterically.
"Oh is that right?" Andy asked as he swiftly stood up and wrapped his muscular arms her waist and yanked her off the chair and onto the ground. He pinned her arms to the ground and whispered into her ear. "You wanna say that again?"
Mona couldn't hold back her giggles no matter how hard she tried.
"Well how precious." Lucifer's voice sounded behind the couple.
Andy immediately released Mona's arms and stood up in front of her, lighting both is bright blue shantas.
Mona calmly stood up. "It's fine Andy he's just a projection." Andy realized that Lucifer was slightly transparent and unlit his shantas.
"You two are just so sweet." Lucifer's sarcastic smile slowly turned into a grimace. "It makes me want to vomit."
"Well then why don't you leave us alone. I would hate to be the reason for your hurl." Andy spat.
Mona stepped in front of Andy. "What are you doing here Lucifer? I have made up my mind, my heart has been changed. I will have nothing to do with you for the rest of eternity."
"That's actually the exact reason I'm here love." Lucifer's projection took a step toward Mona. She took a defensive step back, Lucifer saw this and smiled. "When you first left me you mentioned ending your eternity."
Mona swallowed. "I know what I said."
"See Desdemona, I don't think you do. I don't see a single step taken to do that."
"Because I'm happy now Lucifer. I can spend my eternity with someone I truly love." Mona reached behind her and held Andy's hand.
Lucifer's projection grimaced. "I'll make you a deal. There are two choices. 1:You come back to me with your heart changed how it truly belongs."
"You know that's not going to happen."
"Don't be so hasty, Love. I haven't said the second choice."
Mona said nothing.
"You end your eternity."
"That doesn't sound like much of a deal. What if I do neither?"
"Then Daniel will die."
