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)


4. It's all down hill from there...

Valkyrie awoke on Christmas Eve to rummaging in her room. Being careful not to make any noise she slowly reached for her neocramcer ring on her bedside table. Following the noise her eyes soon found the culprit.

A person, head to toe in black, was rummaging around in her jeans drawer. Slipping the ring on silently, Valkyrie got up in her Pyjamas and sharpened the shadows around the woman's, from the looks of it, throat. The woman stopped and slowly turned around, a smirk on her face. Valkyrie gasped as she realised who it was. That straight reddish hair that fell to her shoulders. That smirk that always taunted her whenever she walked down the halls of the old sanctuary and those playful green eyes. Davina Marr straightened looking at her as her smirk got even wider.

"Did you miss me?" She smiled

" are you here...? I saw you die...I...."

"Oh that was the old me sweetie! But now I'm back and better than ever!"


"Say hi to the skeleton for me" she said. Then she winked and the shadows coiled around her and came down in a wave. When the shadows returned to normal Davina was gone. Valkyrie cursed and let the reflection out and left it to get dressed.

Valkyrie, for her part, put her work clothes on, jumped out of the window (using the air of course) and ran towards the black Bentley that had just pulled up at the pier. What. Just. Happened? She thought as she tugged her seatbelt into place.

Don't know but that was pretty cool- you don't get to see that every day do you?

Shut up, I wasn't talking to you.

Then who was you talking to?


That's one of the first signs of madness you know?

Embrace your inner lunatic, fun times garanteed.

I have nothing to say to that
