Chapter Twenty-Nine: Zoosadism:
March 2nd, 2010.
Tsuzuki gave his "virgin" bride a little smirk. "Oh come on, I won't hurt you. Relax." Anna gulped staring at him with big eyes. The shinigami let his thumb stroke her cheek.
"You poor dear," he cooed. "You're shaking." Anna turned her head.
"Forgive me," she said. Tsuzuki looked at her with loving sympathy in his eyes.
"Poor girl," he said softly. "I bet you've never been kissed either, have you?" Her eyes widened at the question. Tsuzuki chuckled.
"No?" he asked. Fake surprise wished over his face. "A beautiful woman like you never been kissed? I can't believe that." He leaned in closer to his bride.
"Well then," the shinigami whispered. "We'll just have to fix that, we'll we?" He closed the distance before she could speak. The sensation he gave her made butterflies spread from her stomach to her chest as Anna felt her husband give her the tiniest peck on the lips. She didn't seem to know how to react. Tsuzuki gently pulled away and looked her in the eye.
"Feel free to kiss back when you like," he whispered. Anna pressed her lips together with soft red cheeks. Her husband leaned down for another kiss.
April 15th, 2010.
"W-What is this?" Tsuzuki asked, blinking. He found himself in a darkened hotel room. The only source of light came from red lit candles on the floor. Asmodeus himself sat on a domineering silver throne with Lilith and two other women sitting on the floor before him. The demon of lust smirked at him.
"What is this?" he asked. "My grand play for the newlyweds." His eyes turned to the girls. "Say hello to my ladies." Lilith sat in the middle with no emotion on her face. Only now, her red hair was bright blonde. Two more ladies sat on either side of her. The woman on the left's silver blue eyes stabbed Tsuzuki right in the soul. Her long black hair and long white dress made her look more ghostly. Right away, Tsuzuki recognized her eyes from before he encountered Lilith and Asmodeus. He could now put a face to the voice that spoke to him in his head. The woman on the right wore white robes and a brown horse mask. Asmodeus held out his hand to them.
"You've already met Lilith and Kaede," he said, referring to the women in the center and left. "Say hello to Kannon." The women all formally bowed as Tsuzuki gritted his teeth.
"What the hell do you want, Asmodeus?" he barked. The lust demon smirked.
"Again," he said. "You stole her away from me and now that the mother is awake, I just have to have her!" Tsuzuki shuddered at the hungry look in his eyes.
"Anna is not your property!" he barked.
"As a sign of my enthusiasm," Asmodeus said over him. "I'm giving you this display of couples in death."
"Couples in�" Tsuzuki began repeating. It suddenly donned on him what he was talking about. "Wait, you mean you're�"
"Yes," the lust demon said with a cat-like smile. "My vessel feeds off of their lust and death as he watches them fuck until they die!" He breathed in hard. "Oh yes, I can taste it now! He's going for another kill!"
"Bastard!" Tsuzuki snapped. Asmodeus forced back a laugh.
"Why are you getting mad?" he asked. "You can't judge me. Your soul itself is dirty." The shinigami's eyes flared with a heated anger.
"Liar!" he barked. "I'm not like you! I've never sinned like you have, you sick monster!" The horse-woman laughed at him.
"Oh, but you have committed a sin," Kannon cut in. Tsuzuki froze with a jump.
"You fell in love with Anna-san," she went on. "That love was born out of lust." The shinigami shook his head.
"No," he murmured. "It's not like that!" Asmodeus threw up his hands.
"Whatever you say, but I will enjoy the moment you and my vessel break down under the biggest temptation," he said.
"That won't happen!" Tsuzuki yelled. Asmodeus shook his head.
"So simplistic," he said. "Yeah, keep telling yourself that." He turned to his women. "Our time is up here." Asmodeus turned back to Tsuzuki and waved his hand over. The shinigami went into attack mode as a sharp breeze blew between them.
"Come back here, Asmodeus!" he yelled.
"We'll talk again later!" the lust demon shouted above. "For now, you and she will play my gift game to entertain me! Have fun!"
"Damn it!" Tsuzuki shouted at the howling wind. When breezes died down, the shinigami found himself back in the club under the flashing lights and pounding music.
