Chapter Forty-Six: The Devil’s Joy:

Lucy’s happy again. That could only mean one thing.

“Jared’s back, isn’t her?” Tsuzuki asked.

“Uh-huh!” Lucy said.

“For how long?”

“Two years.”


Lucy being happy… Oh boy! Yeah. Plus for two years too? Oh boy!

“What’s wrong with that?” Anna asked. Tsuzuki turned around to her.

“That’s just it,” he said. “You’ve gotten to know her, right?”

“Yeah,” Anna said. Her love put up his hands.

“So?” he asked. Anna took a moment to think about this. Her face stopped.

“Oh,” she mumbled. The Shinigami nodded.

“Yeah,” he said. Both went silent.

It didn’t end there.

Lucy always came around with cuff bruises on her wrists. She grinned… No. She bragged about them.

“Good night?” Hisoka asked to get it over with. She grinned at him.

“Uh-huh!” Lucy said.

“Jared, huh?”

“Yep! For two more years.”

Hisoka rolled his eyes. “Yes, I know.”

Jared’s not a bad guy. He has a decent job. He doesn’t play around on Lucy. He doesn’t hit her except when sexy. It’s just…

“When he’s around,” Tsuzuki broke down to Anna. “Everyone knows it.”

“How?” she asked.

“First,” he said. “There are the marks on her body. Cuff marks, hickeys, bite marks, things like that.”

“Oh my,” Anna said. “She really does like it rough.”

“Don’t see why you’re surprised. You’ve known her close to a year now.”

Anna nodded. “True…” Her eyes turned to him. “What else?”

“Well, she brags about it next.”

“Yeah, I’ve heard that from the others.”

“And then, something else happens.”

She peered at him. “Like what?”

“Last time, they moved in together.”

“And this time?”

Tsuzuki shrugged. “Don’t know yet.”

“It’s funny,” Anna said. “She’s usually anti-love.” Tsuzuki nodded.

“Yeah,” he said. “But Jared’s different. Want to know why?”

“You’re just itching to tell me, aren’t you?”

Tsuzuki smiled. “You know me so well. Alright.” He leaned in to her ear. “He’s like a male version of her.”

“Oh…” Anna murmured. “Her better half?”


“Just like you and I?”

Tsuzuki nodded uneasily. “Minus the S&M parts.” She nuzzled him on the ear.

“Ooo!” he said. Anna giggled. Tsuzuki smiled and shook his head.

“You,” he said.

Then on the thirty-first, Lucy’s big news came that morning. It began with a text.

Big news. Meet me at noon at the Viron.

What could this be? The Shinigami, Anna, demons, Rihoko, and Vivian all waited at the café. Anna leaned over to Tsuzuki.

“So what’s this news she has?” she whispered. Tsuzuki shrugged and shook his head.

“We’ll have to see,” he said. Anna sat back in place. In twenty minutes, Lucy and Jared walked over to their table. She leaned on him, smiling. Not smiling but grinning.

“Hey guys,” she said. Jared waved at them. The crew waved back.

“Okay,” Anna said. “What’s this about?” Lucy held up her hand.

“Patience, Barbie,” she said. “I’m getting there.” Tsuzuki held Anna’s held. Lucy grinned.

“Everyone,” she said. “We got married.” She held up her left hand to show off her deep black wedding band. Silence rested on the crew all at first. Shock just bitch-slapped them where they sat.

“What?!?” they yelled. Jared smirked.

“It’s true,” he said. “We are now married.” Another paused followed.

“When did this happen?” Hotaru asked as she bounced Akira-kun in her lap.

“Two weeks ago,” Lucy said.

“In the courthouse,” Jared added. Here came another pause. Okay… No one expected this. They should have, but still…

“Anything else?” Anna asked.

“Nope,” the S&M queen said. “That was it.” Lucy’s smile became brighter than the sun. “Bye.” The newlyweds turned and left. The others sat there in shock.

“So, Lucy’s married now,” Tsuzuki said later that afternoon. Anna nodded.

“Yep,” she said. The couple passed a bridal shop.

“That’s going to be talk around Ju-Oh-Cho,” he said.

“Uh-huh,” Anna replied. Tsuzuki looked away.

“Takes some of suspicion off of us,” he mumbled under his breath. Anna glanced up at him.

“What?” she asked. The Shinigami paused.

“Oh shit!” he muttered. Anna frowned at him.

“You haven’t told them yet, have you?” she asked. Tsuzuki tried not to look at her.

“You weren’t going to tell them, were you?” she asked.

“Not yet…” he mumbled.


“I don’t know.”

“It can’t stay a secret forever.”

“I know that!” Tsuzuki took a deep breath. He rested his hand on her shoulder.

“Look,” the Shinigami said. “We’ll tell them together tomorrow.”

Anna looked him in the eye. “You promise?”

Her love nodded. “Yes. I mean it. I really do.”

Anna gave him a little smile. “I’ll hold you to it.”


Then, Anna’s cell phone rang.

“Excuse me,” she said. The woman reached into her pocket and pulled out her phone.

“Hello?” she asked.

“My dear niece,” a creepy voice croaked on the other line. “It’s been so long.”
