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)


14. Who Doesn't Love A Happy Ending?

Valkyrie closed the door behind her softly and with a smile shouted: "I'm home!"

"Mammy! It's mammy!" A little voice said from the living room. A little patter of feet and a little girl with blonde hair and dark eyes appeared in front of her. Valkyrie swung her daughter onto her hip as Fletcher came through the doorway. Twelve years ago Valkyrie had declared her love for him and had a heart warming moment with him in the snow. But a lot had passed since then and as she held her four year old daughter in her arms she couldn't help but marvel at her little family. She was now complete and knew where she belonged. Work was going swiftly and Skulduggery and Valkyrie had become even more closer than before and he always babysat for Valkyrie whenever she needed him to. He absolutely adored Rosy (her daughter). Fletcher broke her out of her daydream and said dinner was in the table. She put Rosy down and said she'll only be a minute as she needed to change. Everything was peaceful and happy now she thought as she pulled on some pyjamas. She loves happy endings.

Who said it's going to be a happy ending?

Oh shut up nobody was asking you, Valkyrie retorted back at that voice in her head. These days Darquesse is more annoying than scary.

I haven't even started yet Val. I will return and when I do people will cower at the mention of my name once again! This isn't a happy ending, sad ending or any ending because this hasn't even started yet!

Oh shut up I'm leaving this book here because everyone loves a happy ending.

Yeah, keep telling yourself that. When I return I will make you suffer- mark my words!

Consider them marked.

"Val! Come on your dinners getting cold!" Fletcher called.

"Coming!" She called back. And went down the stairs to her family. Her safe, happy family. Who Darquesse won't harm. Because when Darquesse returns Valkyrie will be ready for her. And will throw everything she has at her- which she hoped and prayed was enough......

That's what you think....nothing will stand in my way. NOTHING! Not you, not Fletcher, not Skulduggery-nobody or nothing. Pfft, happy ending. Never heard anything like it!
