Skulduggery Pleasant: Death's Dawn

"I grabbed the axe off of one of them, snapping it with a sharp crack, twisting around and driving it into the skull of another. These guys were easy to kill, but we were being overwhelmed. I was almost at Tihana's side again, when I felt the rock hit my head.

"Oh bollocks." Blood trickled down the side of my face, and then I passed out."

Also rewritten to be better.

Sword lord - Tyrian

I stamped my foot in frustration. We'd been inside the police's "Stolen Vehicles and Machinery" department for what felt like Tihana's whole lifetime.

"Sir, if you'd like to come this way." One of the officers, a pretty young woman, took the skeleton by the elbow to the corner of the room. I read her lips, it was something to do with them having found the vehicle, but not being able to retrieve it due to danger to the officers. Apparently, gang crime was actually pretty big in Ireland. I heard a sigh behind me, and the skeleton's assistant walked over to the officer.

"Lady, we've been here for hours, and all you've told us is that you can't get hold of the vehicle. Okay, don't bother questioning us, just let us go. Thank you, thank you." She grabbed me by the wrist and dragged me outside. A second later, the skeleton also appeared. He straightened his hat, and wandered off in the general direction of a parking lot. He got there before us, so I arrived in time to see him pulling out ANOTHER Bentley. This man must have a collection.

"Buckle up kids, daddy's putting the hammer down!" He said in his strong Irish accent. I sighed. When a skeleton is quoting Buffy, you know you're in trouble.
