3. Chapter three
"Valkyrie, We have a case and I believe that we could possibly make me human again but I need you with me so I will meet you at the pier in 30 minutes. Do not be late this is very important and needs our urgent attention. See you soon Valkyrie."
Valkyrie gasped when she heard that he could become human again, But then she realised she was very late. Surely enough the next voicemail was from 10:00am and she dreaded to hear how he sounded now that she completely blew him off just when he needed her.
"Valkyrie...? I am at the pier now and your not here so where are you? You have got to be kidding me that the day I need support from my partner and best friend you chose not to even show... I give you 5 minutes Valkyrie and if you dont show I will come and find you regardless of where or what you are doing, ok? I need you Valkyrie."
Valkyrie couldn't believe how vunerable he sounded on the phone and she was amazed at how much he was opening up with his feelings on the phone, Especially now that there was a chance that he could once again become a flesh and blood human! Valkyrie slowly pressed the button to hear the last voicemail and didnt want to hear what was coming next, Considering this voicemail was from 11:20, But she was quite content that this was the last voicemail to deal with.
"Ive checked Gordons mansion, The sanctuary, and any other places you could be and your not there! Im starting to worry so its time I do what I didn't want to do in the first place, Come to your house. I will be there in five minutes Valkyrie, mark my words if you are not there I will send out a search party for you."
Valkyrie allowed a minute for all the information to process of the last five minutes and then it hit her, He was going to come here! Valkyrie leaped out of bed, threw on her black protective clothes, tapped the reflection to come out and jumped out of the window allowing the air to slow her descent, meaning she softly thuded onto the frosty winter soil. Valkyrie briefly glanced at the text messages which only asked her where she was and proceded to make her way down to the pier whilst replying to one of the messages by saying, Sorry im late, meet you at the pier soon. V and immediately got a reply saying There better be a valid reason Valkyrie as to why you are a hour and a half late because im on my way now. Be there in five minutes. S Which made Valkyrie cringe as she didnt believe sleeping in was a valid reason for her to be late, Not when there is the possibility that Skulduggery could get skin back once again after many years of his current skeleton form. Valkyrie's thoughts were slowly drifting away as the sound of the all to familiar Bentley came rolling around the corner. Skulduggery indicated for her to get in for only a split second before returning his gaze to the window. Valkyrie bounded over to the passenger side and slid in gracefully meaning Skulduggery could start the car up once again...
