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."


51. Chapter 50

Shadow Wolf - Tihana

Standing atop the ridge made me feel much more authoritative. It was rather nice, actually. I watched as Tyrian pulled Valkyrie to one side for a moment. "Really, little human? You think it will not be easy to tear you apart? Care to prove it?"

Valkyrie gulped, and took a step forward. Tyrian reached after her, but she shrugged his hand off. I could read her lips as she spoke to him. "Trust." She looked back to me. "I warn you, Tihana, she will not hold back."

I raised an eyebrow. "Talking in third person are we?" I dropped to all fours, transforming into my wolf form.

Valkyrie just stood there. As I snarled at her, baring my teeth. She smiled back at me, sweeping her arms in a wave of shadow. She lifted herself into the air. I growled, holding back- for now. The shadows had merely rippled past me, to no ill effect. Valkyrie climbed higher and higher, before diving toward me. I leaped up, and we collided in mid air. The force wasn't too bad for me, if anything I seem to have taken her by surprise. She seemed to be concentrating on something.

I swiped at her, catching her full in the face. That certainly took the breath out of her. She looked up at me with a puzzled look, the wound from my claws healing up almost immediately. "Well you're antisocial."

I grinned at her. "I would say the same to you, but if anything you seem a bit too much of the opposite."

She held her fingertips to her chest, very dainty indeed. "Moi? Too social? But my dear doggy, I've never met you before. That's Valkyrie you're talking about."

I leaped back at her, catching her by surprise and pushing her down. Even through her protective clothes, she had to feel my claws. "Perhaps you're right, Darquesse."

Now I had really caught her by surprise. She completely stopped resisting as I pulled at her zip. "How the shit do you know?"
