This is the first time I'll write in English, so please bear over with me


7. 6 Chapter

The sky hasn't changed one bit in those many hours I had sat in the little built-in nook in the window, and drawn the endless maze. There was something uneasy about it. The thought about my brother wandering around out there in it, was unbearable. As I sat there, admiring it, a deep voice spoke.

“Blake.” I gasped.

“Oh god!” I immediately felt bad for using those words in front of the devil. “Oh, I’m so sorry, it wasn’t my intent…” He interrupted me with laughter. A warm sweet laughter.

“Don’t worry. God and I aren’t at all as told in the books. Actually, we’re depended on each other. I take care of the dead and he takes care of the living. I can tell you much more about it another time, the dinner is ready.” He offered me his arm. I must admit, I were quite honored as I took it and he led me through his massive mansion and down to the dining hall.

The table was filled up with the most delicious looking food placed on gold plates and bowls. Amber had always been a great cook, but this was some of the best I’ve ever seen her make. She stood behind the chair at the left side, waiting for us. Her gaze was full of spite when she saw us arriving arm in arm. I have no idea what was going through her mind. This place was so big and stunning, how could you not fall in love with it?

Lucifer, as a gentleman, pulled out my chair, and as I was seated, push me back into the table. He went over and did the same for Amber, but she didn’t look happy about it. At last he sat down at the end of the table, just as when we arrived.  Most of the meal took place in silence until Lucifer finally spoke:

“So, you had your time to think. What are you saying, are you staying?”

“Yes!” I immediately burst out at the exact same time as Amber said no. “No? Why not?”

“Can’t you see he’s a monster?” She turned her face towards Lucifer as she continued her allegation “Cruel, cynical and manipulative!” Lucifer's face was stone cold, he didn’t seem to care at all, and though, it made my anger boiled. She couldn’t just talk to him like that!

“Amber!” He laid a calming hand on my arm.

“It’s her choice.”

“No, forget about it! I’ll stay as long as Blake is,” said Amber stubbornly

“Splendid.” Lucifer said in his always calm voice. “You can change your mind at anytime, but for now I think it’s time to go to our rooms.” A couple of servants came and led me and Amber into each our own bedroom.
