14. The choice


Chapter 14


Skulduggery's metaphorical heart sank. Skulduggery wouldn't want to be the reason for Valkyrie having to lie to her family and leave them behind, Yet he wouldn't be able to cope if Valkyrie left him. Ghastly looked deep into Skulduggery's skull, and knew that whatever happened he was going to have to step up to the plate for both Valkyrie and Skulduggery. Ghastly had known Skulduggery much longer than he had known Valkyrie yet he deeply cared for both of them. Valkyrie had once been a young girl who was confused and was forced into the world of magic, And now she was a fierce strong young woman who Ghastly was proud to know. Ghastly had to admit though, It would be hard to re-adjust if Valkyrie did choose to leave. "Whatever happens, Valkyrie will always be there. If she truly wanted to stay out of this life then she would have many many years ago. Have faith in her." Ghastly said, eyes never looking away from Skulduggery's skull. Skulduggery's skull looked up at Ghastly, then at the door leading back to Valkyrie's room. Ghastly nodded, seeing what Skulduggery was hinting at easily. Skulduggery slowly walked back to the room and opened the door. Skulduggery found himself looking into her dark eyes, As she was now awake. "What did i miss?" Valkyrie asked, Flashing a grin as she did. As Valkyrie continued to look at Skulduggery she noticed that Skulduggery's body was tense, Meaning her grin slowly slid down her face and allowing a frow to replace it. "What? What happened?" Valkyrie urged, Sitting up in her bed. As she sat up her face contorted in pain with her half healed injuries burning her skin. Skulduggery darted forward to ease the pressure of her injuries. "Valkyrie lie down." Skulduggery said, All emotion gone from his normally smooth voice. "Not till you tell me whats going on." Valkyrie whispered, Her voice laced with anger and sadness. "Your injuries will heal fine but you..." Skulduggery's voice trailed off to the point where complete silence wrapped it's way around the pair. Valkyrie twisted her body slowly so she was facing Skulduggery and pushed her long black hair behind her ears. Valkyrie reached out and gently clasped his hand to push him slowly on to telling her what was going on. Skulduggery raised his gaze from the clean floor to Valkyrie's eyes and saw exactly what he didn't want to see. Sadness. "I'm so sorry Valkyrie i tried my hardest i honestly did. I tried to stop them but i wasn't quick enough... They killed Desmond and the reflection can't return to this world. I'm so sorry." Skulduggery softly whispered and watched as Valkyrie's hand sprung to her mouth in shock. Valkyrie sunk into her bed and the grip tightened on Skulduggery's bony hand. "You can either stay with your mother or stay with us." Skulduggery said. Valkyrie closed her eyes and when she re opened them she looked at Skulduggery with a face that would fool anyone else into thinking that she was fine but too Skulduggery it showed pain. "I choose you. If i go back to that life then i will be putting my family at risk and i couldn't leave this power behind now." Valkyrie smiled through newly formed tears. No words were exchanged between the pair as the realisation that a new chapter would be turned in their relationship and that Valkyrie was doing this for her mother, And skulduggery opened his arms to allow Valkyrie to get a hug at the one time she needed it. Valkyrie climbed into his embrace and didn't dare to move as she thought about her father and mother..
