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."


33. Chapter 32

Sword Lord - Tyrian

There was an odd sweet smell in the corner-shop. I found it distasteful, but at least I could get milk and return to my deliciously unhealthy cereal. I grabbed a carton of full fat milk from the freezer, and walked up to the checkout.

"That will be £3.50!" the woman told me. I almost screamed. £3.50 for a measly carton of milk! I grabbed my wallet and paid for my overpriced milk. I walked outside, and started heading back towards Skul's house. I was almost there, when I felt a small chill on the back of my neck. I turned and lashed out, almost hitting the face of a man behind me.

"Woah, kid!" He said to me.

"Oh, I'm sorry! I just felt-" I cut off. No one would understand.

"You've gotta get rid of that stress! You really can't go around doing that, what if you hit someone?"

I said nothing, but started to walk away.

"Don't walk away from me." I heard him say calmly. I felt something lock around my legs.

"Tyrian Chase, you really need to stop getting in our way." His T-shirt and jeans melted away from him, and he started to merge into some... demon. His eyes glowed red, and he was covered in shiny black scales. His muscles had bulged upwards to inhuman proportions. He snapped his fingers, and I stared around me, immobile, as at least thirty undead rose up from the ground. Skeletons, Zombies and other... darker things. They started to drag themselves towards me, and I tried to control my panic. If I lost it, I wouldn't be able to break the spell on me. I started to smash my fist into various skulls, and I was being overrun, until something that raised a smile to my face happened. A voice behind me.

"Get away from my human!"
