5. What Happened To Fletcher?

I was just sitting around when Threatening came over. I don't really like the guy but mostly because I'm scared of him. For my benefit I keep looking at my book because I don't really want to talk to him.

"HOW COULD YOU LET THIS HAPPEN?" He boomed in my face, he had a surprising minty breath for a big lug like him.

"Let what happen? I'm just reading my book. Yeah I love this book-what is this?' I flick over to the title, "yeah I love this book, Twilight!"

"That's a girl book..."

I nodded, "a very good girl book."

"But did you hear?"

"No,what?"

"Val had an encounter with Davina Marr and it's all your fault!"

Last time I spoke to Threatening I discovered he fancies Valkyrie- but then again who wouldn't, she's perfect. With her cute little smile and her long luscious hair.....

"FLETCHER!"

"Sorry,what?"

"HOW COULD YOU LET THIS HAPPEN?!"

"How could i what?"

"IF I CANT BE THERE FOR HER THEN YOU SHOULD!"

"Erm......"

"NEXT TIME LOOK AFTER HER- I WOULD DIE FOR HER SO YOU BETTER LOOK AFTER HER!!"

"What do you mean? Me and Val are over!"

"I know but man, I've seen the way she looks at you, she's totally into you!"

"Okay....."

"What do you have what I don't?"

"My..."

"DONT SAY YOUR HAIR!"

"Erm...."

Then I noticed Valkyrie and Skulduggery walking this way and nodded to Threatening. Immediately he shut up and just sat down next to me in silence.

"Hey, Fletch!"

I love it when she calls me that- and every time she's here I just remember how much I love this woman

"Hey, Val- I heard you had an encounter with a ghost,"

"Oh yeah but nothing I can't handle-you know me!"

Skulduggery was stood unnaturally still and was quieter than usual. It was weird, I've never seen him like this.

"Hi Valkyrie!" Said Threatening.

"Oh hey Threatening, but please call me Val!"

"Oh ok Val," he said with a wink, "but I was going to ask..." Skulduggery nudged Valkyrie and they looked at each other for a brief moment until Valkyrie finally spoke again,

"Hey Threatening, sorry to cut this short but we really need to speak to Fletcher for a minute but I can talk to you tomorrow if you want?"

"Oh....umm yeah ok! I'll just umm go then"

Threatening stood up, as he did so the wooden bench creaked and he gave me one more glare before walking off.

"So Fletcher," Val said to me holding my hand, I had butterflies in my stomach already.

"Y....yeah Val?" I said trying to act cool.

"I have a teensie favour I need to ask you"

"Yeah?"

"Yeah do you think you can meet me here at 3:00 today and teleport us to Crooke Park?"

"Yeah sure no p...prob!" I stuttered as she leaned in. She was acting as though skulduggery wasn't there. But as for him, he was just stood there his fake eyes lingering on the floor. His facade was activated and today it was of a middle-aged man with blue eyes and a mo-hawk.

"I knew I could count on you." She whispered and gave me a quick peck on the lips. My heart skipped a beat and it was all I could do not to pull her in for a big passionate kiss-oh how I have missed her!

Skulduggery cleared his throat and Valkyrie gave me a quick hug before leaving and then she joined skulduggery's side. As I watched them walk off I thought maybe I do have a chance with Val after all...
