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)


13. Ah, young love!

"Fletcher! Fletch!" Valkyrie called. She searched frantically for him everywhere and eventually gave up and slumped on a bench at Crooke park. She was so depressed that she wouldn't be able to tell him how she felt that she almost didn't notice the snow falling gently around her.

"Val?" She heard a voice from behind. She spun to find Fletcher there grinning at her. She was so happy to see him that she threw her arms around him before she could control herself. He laughed at her sudden hug.

"Happy to see me then?" He chuckled.

"I guess you could say that!" She said wryly, "walk with me?"

"Sure." He said a little suspicious.

When they were at the end of the trail that went through the park Valkyrie stopped suddenly. Fletcher spun to face her.

"Something you need to tell me?" He asked meeting her eye as she blushed a shade of light pink.

"Yeah," she said shyly, "I.....I like you Fletcher. Like I like like you. A lot. And it's ok if you don't like me back but I just had to get that out there and....." before she could continue his lips were on hers and he only broke off the kiss to say,

"I know that feeling!" Then grinned, at which she just HAD to grin back, and carried on kissing her. She had done so many bad deeds to this man and didn't appreciate her but yet here she was. Kissing him and declaring her love for him. Her train of thought was cut off by Fletcher taking her hand and leading her to where an old woman was softly playing a tune on her little flute. Valkyrie gave her a smile and some change before continuing onwards with Fletcher. When they were at a respectable distance and nobody could see them Fletcher took her hand and slowly twirled her around. She gave him a half smile and half an hour later they were still dancing. Snow was falling around them but they didn't seem to mind. She brushed off some snow off a bench and sat with Fletcher, his thumb stroking her cheek gently.

"I love you Valkyrie. I always have and now I can see that I never will stop loving you. So will you do me a favour and be mine once again?" He said softly. She kissed him gently on the lips and whispered,


And then they teleported into that awfully familiar hotel room. Valkyrie was sure she had seen this all before. That only the order of the events had changed and maybe a bit of the dialogue that went down but she didn't care. Valkyrie was the kind of girl that lived in the moment after all.

Ahhhh you'll be over him in a week!

'That's what you think' she told that voice in her head. That voice that won't entirely go away....
