Skulduggery pleasant- The Night Before Christmas

What will happen to Valkrie this time as life, love and her double identity gets in the way on the night before Christmas?
(Valkrie is 18 in this story and Darquesse is talking to her)


12. Christmas Day.

She woke up in the laundry room in the sanctuary with Skulduggery, Ravel and Ghastly stood over her.

"Care to explain?" Skulduggery asked calmly.

She curled up in a ball and ignored his question. She just focused on a simple thing. What day was it? Christmas Day! How could she forget? Well she had just been dragged through hell and back so she was hardly responsible.

Yeah, sure use that excuse because I'm not exactly listening to you am I? That I won't be offended.

She also ignored the voice in her head and instead looked up and focused on Skulduggery. Sweet charming Skulduggery. Horrible ruthless Skulduggery. She knew she should be scared of him right now, even if she has pushed that gear down inside her all this time she had just seen him shoot her so she should be scared right now. But even here, looking into his empty eye sockets, she could tell that he would never hurt her. But she just had to be sure.

"Would you ever hurt me?" She asked tears stinging in her eyes.

For a skull, he looked pretty perplexed as he cocked his head and moved his head slightly up and down, looking her up trying to see if she was serious or not. In moments like these Valkyrie felt as though it was just her and him. And as he crouched down to her level her heart thundered and pounded as if her heart just wanted to jump out of her rib cage and escape. She was so dumb sometimes! Why did she have to ask that? She was so......before she could criticise herself some more he pulled her into a huge hug. Then he put his facade on and looked right into her eyes,

"I would NEVER hurt you." He said.

She could tell he wasn't lying and before she could reply he kissed her, very gingerly on the forehead.

Ghastly cleared his throat and both Valkyrie and Skulduggery looked up.

"Sorry," Skulduggery said, "just caught up in the moment."

Ghastly gave the slightest of murmurs and smirked to Ravel who smirked back as Skulduggery pulled Valkyrie to her feet. She was about to say something when she remembered.

"Oh I have to go somewhere real quick but I'll be right back I promise," Valkyrie said and gave Skulduggery a quick peck on the cheek bone before leaving. She then turned suddenly and said," what date is it?"

"The 25th of December." Skulduggery replied.

"Oh Merry Christmas!" Valkyrie said before darting out of the room.

"Merry Christmas Valkyrie," Skulduggery murmured his eyeless gaze following her out of the room and he wondered 'what if......?'
