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."

Shadow Wolf - Skulduggery(ish)

He stepped out of the Bentley, his façade was up. Skulduggery walked into the inn, nodding to the bartender, and striding up the stairs. They'd all agreed to pack their bags and move somewhere new. He knocked on the door to Valkyrie's room- she'd temporarily moved into here, better that than constantly having to disappear from her own house.

He stood there for a few moments, tapping his gloved fingers against his other arm for a while, making a jolly little tune as he waited. He was starting to feel a little silly, an emotion he didn't really like. “Valkyrie?” His voice was hushed, and he knocked on the door once more.

No answer. He twisted the handle, opening the door slowly in case she wasn't answering for other reasons. When he got no protest, he stepped into the room. His façade was down in an instant, gun out as he examined the odd emptiness of the room. He tilted his head to one side, and moved back outside. He strode straight to Tyrian's room, knocking once more. After waiting a second or two, he stepped in. “Tyrian, whe-” He stopped there, instantly beginning to use the air to search for people. Nothing in here was out of place.

This was starting to get odd.

Skulduggery moved down the corridor once more, moving toward Tihana's room. This time, he wasted no time being polite. If two of them were missing... He hoped they hadn't gone incognito, he loved going under cover. They would be mean to even think of going under cover without him. As he scanned the room, the skeleton detective gave a sigh. “Meanies...” He muttered, walking back out of the room, reactivating his façade and returning to his car. At least the Bentley wouldn't abandon him. Not that it could, anyway.
