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."

Shadowwolf - Tihana

I sat in the chair. Tyrian had gone hours ago. Maybe it would have been better if he'd stayed? Too late now. The curtains were drawn. I really shouldn't stay here. Who knows what the hotel manager would say if he found the room torn to shreds? I pick up my coat, before thinking again. I wouldn't need it. Outside a light mist hangs over the streets. No. I wouldn't need it at all. Putting on a hoodie, I move towards the door. My hands shake. I fumble for a few moments, before finally wrenching it open, ducking outside, and closing it behind me. The lock clicks as I lock the room once again. I could return the key to the lobby, then not have to worry about it. Yes. That's what I'd do...


I walk out of the double doors. I really didn't think this through. It was a bad idea to send Tyrian back. Alone here, who knows what I would do? My legs are shaking now. Not at good sign. The sky is cloudy. A short, mirthless laugh escapes my lips. As if that would make any difference. I hurry now, jogging whilst hugging myself. A coat would have been good, but it would just get ruined. I glare at the world, my anger flares. Stupid vampires. If there were no vampires, I wouldn't be in this mess. I wouldn't be in Ireland. I would be back home, in my forest, alone.

I turn the corner. I feel it now. Excitement grows, threatening to escape, before I fight it down. If the skeleton finds me... He'll just wish he hadn't. He thinks I don't exist. I like it when that happens. I just manage to get to the park as it begins.
