Shackled (The Lord Series)
Frustrated with her refusal to cooperate, Rueben starts to break her toes.
“Jasper will be livid,” I say as I make some cuts on her t its.
“He will live,” Rueben retorts.
Her screams have me put duct tape around her mouth, and Rueben and I keep inflicting as much pain as possible until she passes out.
“How about we put some walnuts in his food?” Jasper is very allergic to walnuts, and even a tiny bit will make him sick for days, even after he uses his EpiPen. “It will give us some time to find out what she knows about Carlos.”
Rueben helps me remove the needles from her body and put everything back in the toolbox. “I don’t think she knows much. After all, she was only a s*x sla ve. Not even Carlos’ favorite girl.”
“There must be something she knows.” I am sure she is hiding info from us.
Rueben looks at the b itch. “If she does, then I don’t think violence is what will work with her.”
“Then what?” I ask as I wash my hands.
“I don’t know yet, but I do remember she used to tell me many of her secrets because I made her believe I was interested in her.”
“You want to befriend her?”
“Not me. Jasper.”
I cast a glance at the b itch-she looks like she has been through hell. “You think he will want to help us after he sees what we’ve done to her?”
“It’s not like he is in love with her, he is only infatuated with the idea of having a bonded. Why else the hunt?”
I don’t say anything because Rueben is not wrong. I only agreed to it because I thought it would be fun to have a b itch at the farm and use her as a stress reliever. And because it would have made Jasper happy. This b itch is not worth the money we paid to take part in the hunt. Unfortunately, Malaky won’t give us a refund, or else I would have asked for one by now.
“He knows she won’t be our wife, not after killing your sister,” I point out.
“I’m sure he is aware of it, but I think he is trying to make me change my mind. He is even trying to find out why she killed Camila.”
I snort because Jasper is such a pushover when it comes to women.
Once everything is in its place, Rueben helps me take the b itch back to her room..
“What about Jasper, he will check on her sooner or later.”
Rueben rubs his temples. “Make sure to have the EpiPen close by.”
It’s not every day that Rueben agrees with me.
After I make sure the b itch’s pus sy is not bleeding anymore, and her c lit is still where it is supposed to be, I go take care of the horses while Rueben goes to the kitchen.
Putting walnuts into Jasper’s food worked better than I thought, especially since Mose was so drunk he couldn’t make dinner, and Rueben and I took over. Unfortunately for Jasper, he was sick for the last few days, leaving me to take care of the b itch since the rest had to return to work.
I try to enjoy my drink while I wonder why the Elders wanted us to gather three days after Christmas.
Despite Mose catering to Jasper, he is still sick, and I am starting to feel bad, especially since Jasper didn’t deserve what I did to him. It’s all that b itch’s fault. If only Rueben had the balls to kill her that night in the forest, I would not be here feeling like I am drinking ashes because I hate that I made Jasper spend the last few days in bed, feeling like absolute s hit and barely stomaching any food or liquid.
Reyes and his blood-brothers-Alekos and Stefan-sit close to us, when my eyes fall on his wedding ring and I see the st*pid smirk on his face, I wonder what is so great about being tied to one woman. Sure, she might offer the promise of anchoring my soul to her so that my demon won’t consume me, but in time I realized that I don’t give a f**k about what happens to me..
Rueben and Stefan start to talk, and I listen to them.
“What happened to your face?” Stefan asks.
Rueben runs his fingers over the scratches on his face. “My Christmas gift got out of hand.”
We haven’t told anyone about the b itch, and we don’t plan to do so until she starts talking, but Stefan is more curious
“A new horse?”
I snort softly before I take another sip from my glass. It is clear the scratches were made by a-
Before I can finish my thought, Reuben says, “A b itch.” I choke on my drink, and he slaps my back hard. “Tyson and Jasper bought her for the farm. She needs a lot of training, but I am sure she will learn fast. Hell, she might even give bir th to strong pups, as she is from a good breed. But that will come later when she is clean and obeys all our orders.”
What the f**k? Pups? Is he referring to kids? I would rather cut out her ovaries than see her pregnant with any of our children. She is not worthy of such a privilege.
Before Rueben can say any more st*pid s hit, Elder Calum clears his throat, and every blood-brother present looks at
“Not long ago, Brother Alekos gave me a pen drive and told me it contains important information about the Dukes, among other things.” My gaze goes to Rueben. If the Elders have that pen drive, we don’t need the b itch anymore. “Brother Cirro is still analyzing it, but based on what we learned from there, we are sure the Dukes are preparing something big, that might change the world as we know it.”
I grip the glass hard. I bet the b itch knows something. After all, she has been hiding in the Celestial Heaven for many years. It’s impossible for her not to have heard something.
