Lucifer POV

After the man had left Lucifer began pacing again, he still could not figure out the angle that his father was playing. He was confused because he knew how much these small creatures meant to his father. Lucifer knew that the only reason to hurt a human was to show them how strong they could actually be. His internal musing where cut off by the sound of his phone. Gabbing the phone from his front coat pocket

"What" he snapped into the phone. "Oh, hello detective. … No I didn't mean to snap at you. …. Really a lead…. Okay meet me outside the club, I be right down."

When he got off the elevator, he saw Maze cleaning off the bar. Walking over to her, he sat down at one of the stools.

"Maze, I need you to do something for me."

Chloe POV

Chloe was just pulling up to the curb in front of Lux just as Lucifer walked out the side door. She turned to radio off as he walked to the car. Pulling open the door and sliding in with the grace of a dancer, Lucifer turned to her.

"So we have a lead on the case?" he asked

"Yes, apparently the brother of the women had a huge loan that was just paid off."

"Alright then, let's go check it out."

Lucifer POV

The case was over as soon as they confronted the brother. It seems that a man was willing to pay off all his debts if he killed his brother-in-law. He never meant to hurt is sister and her kids…. Blah, blah, blah. Lucifer didn't really care, he just wanted to punish the man but was stopped yet again by the good detective. Walking up the street heading for Lux he stopped when he felt a slight breeze. A dark figure walked up behind Lucifer.

"Hello Brother." Lucifer said without turning around

"Luci. Dad wishes to speak with you" Amendiel said

"And how exactly am I supposed to do that?" Lucifer spat at his holy brother.

"all father told me to you was that he wishes to speak to you and that his knows"

"Knows what?" Lucifer asked. He was starting to get concerned Amenadiel was angry and even though Lucifer could easily defend himself against his brother, an angry angel was not something he wanted to deal with right now.

"I don't know Luci, but I'm not taking you up there so you'll have to figure how to do that ON YOUR OWN!" with that last part shouted out Amenadiel disappeared. Lucifer continued on to his club. When he walked in it was dark. And not the comforting darkness either. No this darkness screamed that a demon was lurking around waiting for her kill.

"Oh Maze, no need for the dramatics." Lucifer said, he was not afraid of the dark, actually quite the opposite he enjoyed it, relished it. And he most certainly wasn't afraid of the little demon that came with the darkness.

"How could you?" Maze walked up to Lucifer and slapped him. "How could you do this?!"

"Now, now Mazikeen, no need for that." Lucifer looked Maze in the eye. He could see the fear and betrayal. But he could also see the small glimmer of hope in them. Looking away from her he walked to the bar, and poured himself a glass of scotch. "I couldn't tell you, I couldn't tell anyone." He looked at the counter. Suddenly he felt a small hand on his shoulder. "I understand" he heard her whisper, he finished his drink as she quietly walked away. After a few more drinks Lucifer washed the glass, got in the elevator, and went up to the penthouse.

Walking out over the elevator and towards to the bedroom. He was tired and not the kind of tired that could be fixed with a good night sleep. he took a deep breath before entering the room, pushing open one door and he walked in knowing exactly what he needed to do. Walking over to bed he looked down. Sitting there was his 6 foot pure white wings that shone with the light of heaven.

Cliffhanger, dun dun duuuuun.
