"Well..." my mind wonders off. "Anyone of you guys?" I question them and they all nod. Oh god. This is going to be so hard to choose one of them. Could I just choose all of them? Wait no! I take that back. Don't make it sound like you're enjoying this death trip with these men... Good looking men. Let's be mature about this Blair. I'm an independent woman. I don't need to be thinking about these men in inappropriate ways. Especially since I'm asking for 31 days to live. Okay, now let's choose one of the guys.
Firstly, I'm not going to choose Henry because he mentioned about stalking me while I'm having my daily showers and watching me sleep and I'm not going to choose Casper either. Casper is a definite no! He sure is mesmerising and his toned body is jaw dropping but then again, his personality and manners are repulsive! Then there's Mitchell and Flynn. I can't decide between the two.
Mitchell seems like the type of guy who would make butterflies erupt in my stomach just by his warm smile. He is good looking; head to toe but, he has a soft side for Casper and would probably tell him everything I did. Flynn on the other hand is quiet and also just as attractive as the other men. I am sure that he wouldn't tell Casper anything. He looks like the shy type and he is some what, Intriguing.
"Have you made up your damn mind?!" Casper impatiently barks at me and I flinch.
"Stop scaring the poor girl, you can scare her when the 31 days are up," Mitchell pats my shoulder, probably trying to assure that I am safe with him. "So who's on your mind?"
"Um," I shift uncomfortably in my position.
"Who do you want?" Henry gestures his hands from him to the other men.
"I'm thinking, Flynn?" It comes out more as a question then an answer.
"What?!" everyone yells in unison including Flynn himself. I can tell by Flynn's facial expression that he is far from pleased. He looks annoyed in a way. Casper crosses his arms in amusement.
I manage to let out an awfully nervous laugh as I try to ease the tension. "Yeah..."
"You're a really weird one. You really want him?!" Henry pokes Flynn's cheek.
"Hey, hey, hey! Leave Flynn alone. Henry. What do you even care? Everyone has their own taste. Anyhow, it looks like you're in charge of her Flynnie," Casper stated and Flynn opened his mouth to argue.
"I don't want to look after her. I have work to do, she'll just get in the way!" He speaks loudly, which surprises me a little.
"You sure have no heart. You didn't have to say it so bluntly," Mitchell sighs. "She chose you to do it. It's only 31 days," he smiles at me silently holding the words 'sorry' in his gaze.
"No." Flynn replies calmly. I can't help but feel a little crushed.
"Flynn! It's already been decided don't be selfish!" Casper sounds like his father. I didn't know that Flynn would be this difficult nor stubborn.
"...Fine but it won't be my fault if she accidentally kills herself," Flynn groans before he grabs my head and stares into my eyes. Hey! What the hell does he think he's doing?!
"Look at me, look into my eyes," he softly says and I do as told. I stare into his eyes for a few seconds, his eyes are light green but the rim is a darker shade. It's really pretty. I feel like I'm being captured by his eyes.
"Flynn stop it!" Casper demands him.
"What do you see?" Flynn questions me and completely ignores Casper's presence.
"I see your eyes, they're really pretty," the words escape my mouth and I clamp my hands on it. Oops!
"Did you just say his eyes were pretty?" Mitchell says shockingly. Surprise and gobsmacked looks are etched on everyone's faces.
"Yeah, they're like gemstones," I blurt out once again. Face palm! Face palm a million times! I quickly move my head side to side as Flynn releases his hold of me.
"Flynn, stop!" One of the men yell at him and Flynn looks away.
"What's your deal? Why doesn't my power work on you?" Flynn kicks a rock in aggravation. What is he talking about?
"Haha! Are you blushing Flynnie?!" Henry bursts into hysteric laughter and I don't find this at all funny. That'd be the last thing that I would be thinking.
"N-no!" Flynn hits Henry's shoulder and he lets out a small 'ow'.
"He's always locked in his room so he hasn't built up an immunity to womanly charms!" They all chuckle and Flynn stands there flushed with anger.
"I wasn't strong enough to cast my power on her and this thing is not a woman!" Flynn spat at all of us.
"Excuse me?!" My voice is higher than usual. I may not be the most feminine girl out there but he's just plain rude!
"Nevermind Flynn, let's get back to the house now," Casper speaks up, trying to calm me down.
"Right. If the wrong people see us. This could get ugly," Henry flings his arm around his friend in agreement and I giggle at Casper's reaction towards it. Casper shoots Henry a death glare and Henry quickly removes his muscular arm.
What did he mean by 'house' though? They did say they were demons, right? If demons live in houses, then are they underground or something?
"What are you making that face for?" One of them say.
"Oh, I was just wondering where we're headed is all," my mind wonders off to all the places their house could be found. In the sky? In a cave?
"Didn't you hear me? I said we're going to our house," Casper runs his thick fingers through his mop of dark hair, "We had to get stuck with someone stupid didn't we?" He sighs.
Mitchell tilts his head back; letting out a weary laugh. "I don't think that's what she meant. Right Blair?" his eyes are suddenly on mine and I quickly nod in reply. "Since we're not human, you're probably wondering if we're going to some other world."
"Yeah, I was thinking that your house was somewhere in the sky," now that I say it out loud, it doesn't sound as smart as I thought it would have sounded.
"Not necessary. I mean. They say hell is underground right?" Henry moves closer to me and I take a step back. Where we're going might be worse than I imagined. "It's really too bad...if you had chosen me we could've had fun in the depths of-"
"The depths?!" My broken voice cut him off. What had he meant by 'fun'? I probably shouldn't think too hard about it other wise I'll develop a migraine.
"That's enough Henry," Flynn says. It's almost as if he was trying to protect me.
Casper coughs, easing the tension and speaks once again. I swear, I'm already getting annoyed by Casper's little speeches. He seems to be the only one talking half of the time, wait, nor like three quarters of the time! "We live in a pretty normal house to be honest. It's just a simple house at ground level. I don't see why you're so surprised by it though? Ask Flynn if there's anything else you want to know. He's the one who's going to be watching over you so he should be there most of the time," he explains and I look at Flynn. Flynn looks around the same age as me but his personality is very stubborn-like and childish. "Mitchell, I want you to look after Flynn."
"Huh, why me?!" Mitchell exclaims.
"Because that's your job Mitch. You're an apprentice after all!"
"I don't need a guard," Flynn's jaw tenses and I can tell that he's very irritated. I am slightly worried that he's going to throw a tantrum or even worse, he might throw me! Before he did, Henry speaks.
"So, Blair. What are you going to do for the next 31 days? What's so important to you that you have to stay in this world?Even if it meant having you to threaten us," are they always this nosy?
"Um," they make me feel so uncomfortable! I might as well just die now instead of sitting through their questions. "I want to confess to the person I love." I'm probably pulling the most awkward smile right now but somehow I fail at smiling at all and the smile turns into a frown.
"Is that the reason you asked to stay alive?" Somehow the question struck a nerve in me.
"Yeah, is there a problem with that?!"
"Well, it's not really wrong, but, I mean if you're going to confess, you'll be dead after those 31 days," Henry gives me a warm smile and I don't know how me ending up dead makes one so happy.
"I'll never understand humans," Casper holds the bridge of his nose as he shakes his head left to right.
"I get it Blair, you would really regret it if you left the world now without ever telling the person you love how you feel." Mitchell is seriously reading my mind. Wait, can he do that?
"Well if that's enough to satisfy you, you might even get a kiss or two. Or three, if things go well of course," Henry's words make me blush crimson.
"I don't think I'll go that far," I fiddle with my fingers.
"Hey. No need to hold back my dear."
"Yeah! Even if your chest is small, you have big dreams. Right Flynnie?" I roll my eyes and decide whether or not to punch Casper.
"I'm tired," Flynn yawns and I raise an eyebrow at him.
"Okay, I swear if he sleeps on us again, I'm going to kick his ass!" Casper threatens Flynn but Flynn doesn't look alerted at all.
"Brother..." Mitchell warns Casper and that's when I start the real questioning.
"You're brothers?!" I was startled.
"Yeah, Casper and I are brothers. Were you thinking about our appearances? For starters we look nothing alike, I know." Mitchell tells me and Casper snorts.
"Let's just go and end the conversation here, Flynn is about to pass out and I'm hungry." So we headed to the house.
Wey hey! Monica here again. (:
Sorry for the 1 week wait. I was very busy, Hanna included. She's still in Japan and won't be back till Friday next week so there will still be slow updates. Thank you to Hanna for editing and we hope you enjoy this chapter.
