"Ooh~! What kind of costume~?" Luciano's cousin, Flavio, asked.
"I need a…" Luciano searched for the right words and it was the first time he heard himself say the one word that he hated. "Beautiful. A beautiful dress."
"My dearest brother, why do you need a dress?" Flavio asked.
"I told you, we're not brothers!" Luciano snapped.
"Well, we look a lot alike~! That and we both like killing things~! That makes us brothers~!"
"Look, I need a dress for someone I like and that's all! I'm not here to talk about our non-existent family relationships!" Luciano yelled.
"Calm down, big boy!" Flavio giggled.
Luciano rolled his eyes. Of all the people who he owed a favor to, it was the "fruit bat" of his family. "Look, I have this…lady in my life. She's going to be missing a big day in her social life and I…I need to make it up to her."
"…You stole her, didn't you?" Flavio asked in a monotone voice.
"…Yes…" Luciano said.
"How many times do I have to tell you, just be normal!" Flavio said. "Get an online dating account or something, jeez!"
"Normal?! Coming from the man who poisoned six supermodels?!" Luciano snapped.
"Relax~! Anyways, you need a costume dress for the little lady of yours, right?" Flavio asked.
"I need her clothes sizes. Pants, shirt and bra!"
Luciano flushed red. "I can't do that! I'd be a pervert! What am I going to do, ask her about what size pants she wears over dinner?"
"Just get it some extra clothes from her room. Have Luzie do it or something~!"
"His name is Luzifer." Luciano rubbed his forehead. "Fine. I'll get you the sizes. If you worked all day and night on this dress, what time will it be here?"
"Tomorrow morning with fast shipping and if you got me the sizes in an hour~!"
"Work all day and night, then. Sizes will be given to you in a half hour. I'll pay for shipping." Luciano said.
He hung up the phone before his cousin could talk any more. Idiot.
Luzifer knocked on the office door.
"Someone better be dead." Luciano said as the German entered the room.
"I regret telling you, because someone might end up dead."
You opened the front door and froze at what you saw.
"Oh my God! Alfred! Gilbert! Arthur!" You hugged the men standing at your door. "You guys shouldn't be here." You said.
"Hey, we're your friends!" Gilbert said. "Three more days was never in the contract and neither were friend visits!"
Alfred gave you another bear hug. "How's the dudette doing?"
"I'm fine." You sighed.
"Fine? You were in tears last time I saw you." Arthur said.
"I was a lot happier by the time you left." You said, giving a small smile to Arthur.
"Ugh! Lovesick kids! How ridiculous!" Gilbert wrinkled his nose.
Luciano stood to one side of the stairs, watching. There was this feeling in his gut that he never had before. Well, maybe a small taste of it here and there but now: now he was eating the whole goddamned feast of this feeling!
He was jealous.
Luciano was green with envy.
How did those people make you smile? How did they make you laugh? How come he couldn't see that smile of yours as much as they did?
Chiku walked into the room with Luzifer. Luzifer had told him about what happened. Chiku couldn't help but suppress a smile. Ah, it looked like his old leader was back. The way Luciano's chest heaved, the way his teeth were slightly bared, the way his fingers were itching to grab his trusted switchblade from his jacket pocket. Last time Luciano had this look on his face, he dismembered and disemboweled five FBI agents because one made a remark about his brother.
Luzifer made his way to the door to shut it on the faces of yours friends, letting them know they were not welcome at the moment but Chiku held him back.
"I want to see this." Chiku chuckled.
Luzifer bit his tongue not to say anything. He'd have to hit the Japanese man to get away from him but that would be noticed yours friends. And if that happened, the FBI would be at their door within two hours to take you away.
Luciano couldn't hold back any longer. He stormed up to the door and pulled it back more so your friends could see him. You jumped at the sudden appearance of the Italian man but you paled at the rage in his eyes.
"Get off my property." He growled.
"Hey, we're not doing any harm!" Alfred said.
"Get out." Luciano said, a little louder.
"We're just seeing our friend." Gilbert said, in a tone that matched Luciano's. That voice that Gilbert used could scare any kid at school but not Luciano.
"Get out!" Luciano yelled, attempting to slam the door. Arthur threw himself against it, holding it open.
"If you shut this door on us, we will take action against you!" Arthur yelled.
Luciano couldn't say anything. The rage was boiling over.
He would kill that blonde boy.
Luciano reached out and grabbed Arthur by the throat. You threw yourself at Luciano, all three of you falling to the ground. Arthur hit his head on the door, splitting open his forehead, blood running down his face.
"Go!" You yelled at your friends.
All three of the boys ran out into the street. Luciano shoved you to the ground and stood up, shutting the door.
Luzifer knew Luciano's anger would be directed at you so he tried to run to Luciano to get in between you two. Chiku blocked him yet again.
"Why? Why did you let them in?!" Luciano yelled at you.
"I didn't! They just showed up!" You yelled back.
"Right, I bet they just showed up!" Luciano mocked. "That lovestruck idiot just showed up after you kissed him on my property! After our deal that we made!"
You froze. "You…you saw us?"
Luciano just snarled at the ground, turning away from you. "You…broke…your…deal!" Luciano screamed at the end of his words, turning on you and picking you up by your hair.
You screamed that terrible scream again. Luciano barely heard it.
"You promised not to see anyone!" Luciano yelled. "You promised!"
"I'm sorry!" You cried out.
"You betrayed me! You lied to me! You snuck away to my garden, on my balcony and kissed someone who doesn't even love you!" Luciano yelled.
"Arthur loves me!" You yelled, trying to free the man's gloved hand from your hair.
Luciano picked you up by your hair and slammed you against the wall by the door. "He doesn't." Luciano said, his voice half growl and half yell. "He just wants you for your beauty! He looks more at your body than your face!"
"No!" You yelled. You tried to get away from Luciano.
"He doesn't love you!" Luciano took you by the shoulders and slammed you against the wall. Your back exploded with pain.
"He will never love you!" Luciano yelled. "He can't even kiss you!"
"He loves me!" You yelled back. "Arthur loves me!"
Then Luciano did the most unexpected thing.
He kissed you.
His lips smashed against yours.
Both of you were taken aback by his move. For one moment, you both felt fireworks. Luciano just wanted to kiss you. Hold you. Cradle you in his arms. But as soon as the fireworks started, they crashed and burned. Luciano became dominant and you became scared. You pushed the Italian away from you. Luciano grabbed your arms.
"You're mine!" Luciano yelled. He slammed you against the wall.
Luzifer pushed Chiku out of the way, who was starting to laugh at the scene.
"Let go of me!" You yelled.
"That other boy doesn't love you!" Luciano yelled. "He never will! You are mine!"
"Get away!" You yelled.
"I love you!" Luciano yelled. "I love you and you lied to me!"
Luzifer grabbed the Italian man and pulled him away from you. "Chiku, get over here!" Luzifer yelled.
The Japanese man just laughed from where he stood. Luciano strained against Luzifer to try and get to you, snarling and growling like a rabid dog.
"Chiku, I will crush your skull if you don't get over here!" Luzifer yelled.
Chiku took that threat somewhat seriously and helped Luzifer hold back Luciano, still chuckling.
You just stood there, watching Luciano be restrained by his guard dogs. So he was the one who left the moonflowers in the room with the balcony. He watched you and Arthur kiss. He…He loved you?
You slowly went up to Luciano and touched his cheek. He stopped struggling and just looked you in the eye. His odd colored eyes just looked into yours. His breathing was heavy from trying to get away from his friends. You didn't see terrible anger in them. You saw great sadness in those eyes. You broke his heart. You realized it now.
"I'm sorry." You whispered. "So, so sorry."
You bit your lip to keep from crying. You turned and ran outside.
"No!" Luciano yelled. He tried to reach for you as it ran but Chiku and Luzifer held him back. He slowed down and just stood there, stopping his struggle. "I… I loved you…" He whispered.
