Hell's Punishment Torture 8
"Oh, welcome home, darling." Lucfi said to John as he, Mika, and Camiel just walked into the living room.
"Um… John, who was she talking to you?" Mika angrily asked John, who was at lost for words.
"Huh? I was talking to…"
"Camiel! That's right; I forgot to mention Camiel's cosplay co-worker was also staying with us! She and Camiel are a cosplay duo called "Angel and Demon"! Wherever Camiel goes, Lucfi follows along with her! She doesn't really stay here as often as Camiel because she's rebellious and loves to get into trouble! She's really like an annoying little sister than anything else! "John quickly explained.
"Huh? What are you babbling about…?" Lucfi was about to finish to her sentence, but noticed Camiel signaling her to stop.
"Oh I see what's going on, John. It makes sense that you would've forgotten someone so small and bothersome." Mika said.
"Huh?" Lucfi said with a bit of irritation in her voice.
"I mean, I can see what kind of pain you're going through just by looking at her. She clearly doesn't respect the kindness you've given to her by allowing her to stay in a household in her time of need. Instead she pushes you around and constantly nags you needless things."
"My lord… you really understand me!" John said, almost in tears that someone understood the poor situation he was in.
"Of course I do my sweet heart. A real woman wouldn't act so childish, but then again she does look like a child."
"Oh, and you are, some hooker off the side of the street? Must be because that mouth of yours keeps running." Lucfi commented.
"Excuse me, but I'm not the one dressed up as one."
"Shit just got real." John said in his mind.
"Okay, I can see where this is going to go. I'm heading to bed." Lucfi said as she stands up to leave.
"Wow, she didn't attempt to kill her? I'm impressed." Camiel said to herself.
Lucfi walked towards John and smirked at Mika. Lucfi slowly rubbed John's chin in a seductive way and whispered into his ear, but enough so Camiel and Mika could hear her.
"I'll see you later in bed tonight, big brother." Lucfi said slowly.
Camiel, John, and Mika opened their mouths in deep shock. Lucfi, satisfied with what she done and left to John's room victorious. Lucfi closed the door and sighed. From behind the door, Lucfi could hear sounds of glass breaking and Mika yelling.
"I'll kill you, you lying dog!" Mika shouted throughout the house.
Lucfi smiled to herself and jumped unto John's bed.
"Ah, mortals are so fun to mess with." Lucfi said as she drifted off to sleep.
In Heaven, Jofiel happily skipped towards Michael's room. Michael's room was extremely bland and ordinary. There was literally nothing in it that separated it from a normal room. There was a white bed, a white dresser, a white desk with a white chair. The whole room was just white and plain.
"Oh, Michael!" Jofiel yelled for him.
Jofiel heard the sound of metal clashing nearby. Jofiel entered Michael's room and opened a hidden door near his bed. The door led to a garage filled with machinery. Michael was working on a vehicle and was using a torch on it. Jofiel watched Michael work on the vehicle. Michael noticed Jofiel behind him and looked back.
"Jofiel, I told you to knock when you enter my room. I'm working with very dangerous tools." Michael said to her.
"You're always working Michael. Why don't you do something fun for once?" Jofiel complained.
"I am. I like to work on electrical and mechanical devices in my spare time. These are very useful for the army."
"You do that even if you are working."
"Well, how about that. Anyway, is there something I can assist you with?"
"We found the conspirators secret hideout."
"And you didn't think of telling me this first?"
"If you let me finish... the place was already cleaned out by the way we found it. Almost like they were expecting us to find it."
"So in the end, we are left with nothing."
"Nothing but a message."
"And once again, you fail to tell me this. It would've been easier if you had just it from the very beginning."
"You're such a workaholic, Michael! Can't we enjoy a good conversation for once?"
"We had just done so, before you brought up the hideout."
"Ah, you get on my nerves sometimes. Anyway, the message said we should be keeping an eye out on Satan."
"How should I know? I didn't talk to them."
"I see... then maybe it is time we confront Satan. I've been curious as to why she is in the Mortal realm."
"Who should go? I volunteer!"
"No, you'll just get distracted and play with Camiel."
"I can't help it... it's just those tits, man. They're like begging to be squeezed. You understand, right?"
"I do not."
"So, you're telling me you don't think Camiel has a killer body?!"
"I'll admit, she is quite beautiful, but I do not contain any thoughts towards her body."
"Oh, are you still resisted on looking at other women since Luc..."
"Her name is Satan. Lucfi is dead."
"Okay, okay. I'll go talk to the other Archangels about this, Mr. Sensitive. Bye, bye."
Jofiel skipped out of the garage, leaving Michael alone. Michael sighed and continued to work on the vehicle.
"So, it's true that there are conspirators in Heaven. I have an awful feeling I already know who it is, but it'll be trouble if I confront him without any evidence. I shall not allow another Satan to be born out of this. Not again... that I swear." Michael said to himself.
John could die... he could literally die right now. His life... was a complete mess. School was the only place John had peace since meeting Lucfi. There no one would bother him, attack him, or attempt to kill him. It was the only place left in the city that John enjoyed going to. But, now after what happened yesterday... John just die.
"You bastard..." a male student said to him.
"I hate you, you son of a bitch!" another male student said to him.
"You've betrayed us, John! Blasphemy!" another one said.
"Man, you have really screwed up. I don't even know you anymore." Ken angrily said to John.
"Guys, please. It's not my fault." John quietly said under his breath.
You want to know the reason why? It's because Mika would not leave John's side. In fact, right now Mika is sitting right next to him in class hugging him. The guys in John's class always thought Mika was a beauty. And now that she was clinging to a poor, wimpy, weak guy like John. All the guys hated him and wanted him dead, including John's best friend, Ken. To them, John committed a crime that was even worse than sin.
"First, the devil. Then, a busty angel. And now, Mika Odin?! You son a bitch! You son a bitch! You have gone too far, John! Too far!" Ken yelled.
"Please, I just want to live a normal life. Is that so hard to ask?!" John cried.
"Why... Why is a babe like her with someone like you of all people?!" a male student shouted.
"He must done something awful... something so terribly awful that a sweet girl like Mika would be forced to comply to him! That's the only logical conclusion that can come out of this!" another male student shouted, the girls in class almost laughed at this.
"It's not hard to understand. John is a wonderful guy. He's kind, considerate, and the most sane guy in this city. It's sad that he has to suffer all of the pain he's going through today when he's done nothing wrong." Mika explained.
"Mika..." John stared at her.
"However, he does has his faults. I was hoping I would be his first, but he was already plucked."
All of the male student's hearts literally shattered upon hearing that. John was shocked and was at lost for words. The guys slumped back into their seats and wept at their desks.
"I knew it! That bastard had a threesome! I just knew it!" Ken cried.
"Why must such tragedy?! Why?!" a male student cried.
"The world isn't right! It just isn't right anymore!" another male student cried.
"W... Why are all the guys crying?" the teacher said as he walked into the classroom.
John himself was crying for a different reason. His life was over.
"This is the worst day of my life!" John cried to himself.
After school, John didn't walk home. Instead, he was on the rooftop of the school and stared at the sun as it begun to set.
"My life... is completely over. I have no peace left whatsoever. At home, at school, on the streets... no peace. Everywhere I go someone wants to kill me. Even though I'm surrounded by women, each one of them has the ability to end my life in a second. I still don't have a job. And even if I have a shield, thugs can still attack me. I miss my previous life. Even if you're not the greatest... you're still not the worst." John saluted to the setting sun, saying goodbye to his past horrible life and now moving forward to his new, even crapper, life.
It was almost dark, but John didn't care. He still walked straight towards home. The thugs that were out didn't bother confronting him because the gloomy atmosphere surrounding him frighten them.
"What should I do? Should I just run away from it all? Where would I go? There isn't another city for miles. I don't have much money. If I try to run away, Lucfi might send one of her Hell minions after me. Surly Mika might chase after me. I don't know about Camiel. She'll probably drag me back and scold me." John thought to himself.
John heard a scream and instantly looked up. A woman was running away from a group of thugs. She had short green hair and blue eyes. She wore a red shirt, brown pants, and an apron. She looked very young and had a marriage ring on her left ring finger.
"Help! Somebody help!" the woman yelled.
"Heh, you can't run away, lady!" one of the thug yelled.
"Come on! Let's a play together!" another thug joked.
The woman noticed John and hid behind him. The thugs stopped and stared at John.
"Please help me! Call the police or something!" the woman begged John.
"Oh, this ya boyfriend? How's he supposed to help ya?!" a thug joked.
"Look at him, he's scrawny! I can easily break him like a pencil!" another thug said.
"Miss, why don't you just run and leave the kid out of this? You don't want us to hurt him now, do you?" another thug said.
The atmosphere around John grew darker. The thugs noticed it and stepped back in fear.
"Dude, what's up with that kid? He ain't right." a thug said.
"I ain't seen someone that depressed in years. His life must be a total hell to be this down." another thug said.
John stared at the thugs with his dark, gloomy eyes. The thugs cringed and stepped back even further.
"Leave." John said with a deep, dark tone.
The thugs ran away. The woman sighed in relief.
"Thanks, kid. I didn't know what I do without..." the woman was shocked to see John's gloomy face. "Um... how about I grab you something to eat?"
A few minutes later at a noodle shop, the woman (who was the owner of the shop) placed a bowl of noodles in front of John.
"Here you go, kid! A fresh batch on the house!" the woman said with a smile.
John stared at the bowl.
"Hey, kid! I didn't fix this just so you can stare at it! Eat it or I'll shove it down your damn throat!"
"Huh? Oh, yes ma'am! Sorry!" John quickly said and begun to eat the noodles.
As soon as John ate a small portion, his once gloomy face turned into a bright, shiny one filled with satisfaction. John was baffled by how good the noodles were.
"This... this is so good..." John said.
"Isn't it? They're my homemade noodles! Nobody ever leaves this shop without a smile on their face!" the woman said pleased.
"By the way, why were those guys chasing you earlier?"
"Those bastards? They wanted to kidnap me and take me home with them. So, I grabbed my baseball bat and knocked one of their boys out. They got mad and chased after me."
"Yeah, I would've knocked all of them out if I wanted to, but I didn't want scare any of my customers so I pretended to be scared. Oh, where are my manners? The name's Eve! Nice to meet you!"
"It's nice to meet you, Miss Eve. My name is John, I'm a high school student."
"A high school student? Do you have a job?"
"Can you cook?"
"Do you have any police records? Do you take drugs? When was the last time you worked?"
"No, no, never, and why are you asking me these questions?"
"Because, I'm thinking about hiring you, John."
"Really?! You'll give me a job?!"
"Course, it's the least I can do for you."
"Thank you, miss! Thank you!"
"So, what will I be doing?"
"You're going to be an errand boy."
"Oh, that's sounds... hold on... an errand boy?"
"Yeah, my husband and I need someone to do errands for us while we work in the shop. And if there comes a time when me or my husband can't cook, you'll help out in the shop."
"Oh, I see. I guess I can do that."
"Oh, I forgot to ask. How fast can you run and how much of a beating can you stand?"
"Um... I can run pretty fast from personal experience and I can take a few beatings. Why do you ask?"
"Because the jobs I'll have you do are dangerous and can potentially get you killed."
"What?! What kind of work do you do outside of cooking?!"
"I won't say you'll believe me, but I have some underground business with a couple of people. But, you'll be fine as long as you don't get caught. I'll pay you handsomely."
"I don't know... that sounds like a deal breaker for me."
"I hate to also tell you this, but those guys earlier are also part of the underground business Now that they saw your face, they'll never forget you. So, in a way, you're already part of the crew! Welcome aboard, John!"
John opened his mouth in deep shock. His life... just got worse. But... at least he has a job now.
"This... this is... this is Hell's Punishment!" John yelled into the night.
