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."


44. Chapter 43

Shadow Wolf - Tihana

I was pretty excited. Finally was I able to explore the world at my pace, at my desire. I could find who I wanted, I could do what I wanted. It was rather nice having freedom. I wasn't trapped in debt to help Tyrian's family. The Chase family wasn't formally called Chase. No, that was merely the second name most of them 'took'. It was what you might call a family tradition. Any male 'heir' would take the last name of Chase. Some went by it, others decided otherwise. I didn't know their actual name.

I had left with nothing but my book, striding down the streets of Dublin, keeping my head down. I shied away from sorcerers when I smelt them, watching a few warily. They didn't notice me. They could tell I had no magic, and so they disregarded me. Slight disgust boiled inside me. They think of themselves so high, so powerful, so amazing. They even call people without magic mortal. I don't have magic, and yet I'm not mortal. Funny that. They've all forgotten werewolves. They think my race is dead, they think we are no more.

Do you ever get this feeling you want to stand up at someone, when they're telling you people like so and so don't exist? Do you ever feel like yelling out to the world, I can do this, and no one else can? I feel like that constantly, I feel like yelling it out. But I know, I know so much, that they would kill me if I breathed a word of my existence. Whoever killed my pack, all those years ago, would come for me, would come to claim my life as well. And god knows I wouldn't let them do that.
