Hello I'm back! I was bored when I wrote this and im actually proud of it
I don't own Skulduggery Pleasant or the fallen series.
Chapter 1: Boarding School
"I can't believe this is happening to me,"
"I know, it's terrible. You're not allowed to kill your parents,"
"No buts'. Your parents obviously think it's what's best for you. You have to trust their judgement,"
"And what do you think,"
"Well... I agree with them,"
"What? How can you say that?"
"Everyone warned you what being with me would be like and you didn't listen. You've changed so much you haven't even realised it. You don't even seem to be a 15 anymore. I think you would find this a beneficial aspect to being a teenager."
"No I wouldn't,"
He shook his head and laughed slightly. "I think you need this more than I think. You need to learn to be young again and since I'm over 400 years old this would have to do, where, you know, you're hanging round people your own age,"
"But Skulduggery, seriously. Boarding school?" she looked at him with her best puppy dogs eyes, but he wasn't falling for it this time.
"Valkyrie that's not going to work on me now. I can't just go up to your parents and say 'oh please don't send her away. She's not who you think she is, she's Valkyrie Cain and I need her to save the world and blah blah blah' you know I can't"
"Why not?" she moaned.
"Because I can't give the secret away. It's what's best for you. And don't you think your parents and Susan would freak out if there was a living, walking, talking skeleton on their doorstep saying I know you?"
She thought. "I guess so. But it's not like Susan's gonna notice anything. She's only 6months old." She looked at her watch. "Well I better be off. I still need to get my sluttish uniform yet. Then get ready for tomorrow. That's when I leave. And I won't be back until Christmas and that's only a three day holiday,"
"Tomorrow you go? And you won't be back for six months?"
"That's pretty much it. But then again it did use to be a reform school so..."
Skulduggery and Valkyrie continued to walk along the pier near her home. Skulduggery put an arm around her and gently pulled her into a hug.
"Valkyrie Cain," he said. "It has been a pleasure working with you. And I'll miss you,"
"I'll miss you too. You'll tell Tanith and Ghastly and my idiotic, gay, pathetic, hair-loving, twat ex-boyfriend for me won't you?"
"Yes I'll tell Tanith, Ghastly and Fletcher for you,"
She smiled, stood on tip-toes and kissed him lightly on the cheekbone before quickly back home where her mum and little, baby, sister were waiting to take her shopping and prepare for her first day at Sword & Cross boarding school.
Sword & Cross School is known as a reform school. Well it was for a while but now it's turned into a normal boarding school because there are not enough education environments for the amount of youngsters running around lately. It hasn't changed a lot since the government decided to change it slightly. It used to be a dreary place with a church-gymnasium, a forest, a cemetery and monitored constantly via cameras.
First of all they got rid of the old church-gymnasium that was there and turned it into a normal gym that let in a lot more light than it ever has done. The school have gotten rid of the cameras that used to watch students every move and the students are allowed more than 15 minutes a week on the phone. There's nothing to be done about the forest so the students are told to keep away, until they can get a fence aorund it, but the students choose to hang out at the back of the field near it anyway. The government think they have made the school better and the students agree. Finally the students who had a tag on, so the teachers knew where they were at all times, don't have them on anymore but are monitored closely in lessons to make sure they're not getting up to no good.
There was one couple who have been attending Sword and Cross for a while now after suffering a little difficulty in the past. They made a wonderful couple and seemed to have a normal kind of love life, had good friends, the normal bicker every now and then, but then again didn't every couple? But these people were far from normal. One of them was actually an angel and most of their friends seemed to be angels too and helped him out when he was in love with her in all her other reicarnations. She knows about this but one thing she never could know was what had happened in her past lives because it could kill her like it has done in all her other reincarnations and he didn't want to risk that, but she didn't mind. She liked living in the present not the past.
Now Daniel and Luce could be together at last standing where they first met in the sunshine wearing old jeans and t-shirts. They were sharing a kiss when the bell went for them to go to their next lesson, history with Mr Cole. Double history with Mr Cole which meant that they both spent their last two hours of their Friday school afternoon listening to the stuff that they already know. They've been learning the same lesson for three weeks now because new students turning up in lessons in large quantities when other students left to go to different schools.
In fact, before the school was changed the entire student population were actually angels. Now there are five maybe six angels in the whole school.
They were just about to walk into lesson when Randy, the school attendant called Luce over to her.
"Yes? Can I help you?" Luce asked suspiciously.
"Luce we have some new students enrolling in the school tomorrow and since you are the only girl left without a roommate I would like you take have them in your room."
"What? How many are there?"
"There's only two new girls coming and one new boy. And, no, I'm not asking you to take in the boy. Daniel can do that,"
"Why us?" She moaned. I mean really moaned like a five year old being denied sweets.
"Because I said so. Now go to your lesson,"
Luce went back to the lesson and sat down on her desk which was next to Daniel's desk. He sent her note saying:
Wat did randy want?
She wrote back:
I'm the only girl without a roommate so I have to take in the two new girls starting tomorrow. Totally unfair or what?
She passed the note to him and as he read it he left out a single breath laugh. She looked at him and saw him scribbling down on the paper:
It's alrite babe. Shes got me lookin after a new kid as well but bad luck wiv 2
As she was reading it a paper airplane fell in front of her. She smiled. She already knew who it was from. Arrianne. Her first friend when she first arrived at Sword and Cross. And since Penn's death, her best friend.
She quickly opened up the airplane and read what Arrianne said to her:
Jeez can u and Grigori make it any more obvious to the note passin? I mean come on im 2 rows in front and I no its happenin! Anyway party in my room tonite! Don't 4get. And don't 4get Daniel. Not that u would u go nowhere wivout him. A
She smiled and passed the note to Daniel who was trying to read it over her shoulder the whole time. She smiled at him and he smiled back and nodded to her. Then she scribbled on her note to him:
The new kids won't be much trouble darling. And I am not missing Arriane's party again. This one's to celebrate her birthday remember? So please don't ask me to miss it again. =(^_^)=
He read the note and sighed. She was watching him with her innocent face and he nodded. They were not missing Arriane's party. After history they were laying in a sunny patch just near the forest but in view of the teachers on duty. Luce had got changed out of her jeans and put on some pale blue shorts that stopped mid-thigh and wore a matching blue vest top. Daniel had kept his jeans on but slipped on a white shirt because of the heat.
He had just sat up and had his face leaning on his palm with his elbow on the grass, and was staring at her. She smiled up at him and leaned up to kiss him when the one person she cannot stand walks over. Cam
"Well, well, well, isn't this a pretty view? You're doing well for yourself aint ya Grigori? I wish I was that lucky" he teased and sat down on the other side of Luce. "What do ya say Luce. Wanna give a real angel a kiss?" he asked puckering his lips. Daniel stood up and pulled him up by the collar and threw him away from Luce, literally. Luce stood up and looked at Cam.
"Dream on you sicko!" she said. Cam stood up and ran towards them and tried to hit her but Daniel stepped in his way.
"You're not wanted here Cam. Just go," he said low and threatening. Cam narrowed his eyes and looked accusingly at Luce.
"This aint over Luce," he said
"Ooh I'm so scared!"She shouted to him as he ran the other way. Daniel put his arms around her and kissed her neck, and then they walked back to the main building to get ready for Arriane's party.
