Claude smiles seductively.
"That makes me ever so happy, my rose." I force myself to smile as Claude wraps a purple cloak around me and leads me upstairs
"W-Where are we going?" Claude doesn't answer and sits me down at the table
"Would you like a cookie?" My eyes light up and I nod quickly. I have a soft spot for baked goods. Claude smiles
"Hannah!" The female demon stood in the corner of the room, dusting the furniture. She looks over at Claude.
"Yes, sir..." She hurries into the kitchen to prepare my snack. A minute later Hannah brings out a plate of cookies and sets it in front of Claude and I. I eat one. It's warm and gooey.
"How are they?"
"Delicious!" Claude takes one for himself and nods in agreement. Claude runs his fingers through my hair as I nibble on another cookie.
"Let's go upstairs, slave boy." Once I finish the last cookie, Claude grabs my hand and steers me to the stairs. I cough as he fastens a leather collar around my neck and attaches a rope to it.
"C-Claude?" I yank on the rope. Claude frowns and pulls it tighter.
"It's a gift from master." I yank again. He growls
"Take it off!" I cough as its tightened once again
"What're you complaining about?! You're not gagged. You're not tied up." He glares at me. I gulp as I stare into his demon eyes
"If you pull on it again...I'll rip out your organs and shove them down your throat." I chuckle softly to myself. He doesn't have the guts to do it. He's all talk. I smirk and yank on the rope defiantly. Claude grabs me tightly and carries me downstairs to the basement. He pins me onto a stone slab and straps me down. I scream but he ignores me. Claude pulls out a scalpel and rests the blade on my bare skin. I feel myself sweating in fear.
"Apologise. Or I'll kill you." He presses down on the blade, making a small cut.
"I-I'm sorry!" Claude pushes the scalpel deeper
"For what?" He snickers
"For disobeying!" I sigh in relief as Claude releases the straps. He picks me up and strokes my cheek. I cling to him slightly. We enter a bedroom with curtains made of spider webs. Claude lays me on the bed and covers me up. He lays beside me and wraps me in his arms. I clutch my bleeding stomach but cuddle into him for warmth. He breathes deeply onto my neck and toys with my earlobe.
"Now take a rest." Claude smiles. I nod slowly and try to fall asleep, scared of what I might wake up to.
