18 months ago-
Blake Knight sat at the huge डेस्क with the hologram of Roarhaven in the ops room with Skulduggery and China sat on the other side. Blake was too busy looking at the little people on the hologram to notice them though
China: Mr Knight
Blake: yeah? What? Sorry?
Skulduggery: have आप been listening to a word we've said?
Blake: ummmm. No. Not really. Why? Is it important?
China: we'd like to take आप off the Junior Operative Program
Blake: what?! What the hell for. I haven't done anything wrong. Well not for a while at least
China: आप didn't let me finish
Blake: oh sorry. Carry on
China: as I was saying. We'd like to take आप off the Junior Operative Program, and make आप a Detective.
Blake woke up from unconscious. He had no idea what had happened. He only remembered The Rake and Valkyrie...
Blake:(thought) oh crap, she saw my blacks veins)
That's what must happened, she knocked him out. The टमटम was up. Now everyone knew he was a Remnant. He noticed his hands were cuffed behind the chair he was sitting on in an interview room, his necromancy gauntlet was on the डेस्क I front of him. He tried moving his hands but he was unsuccessful. He grunted. The The Rake came into his mind. Where was it. He didn't know if he killed it या not but he hoped he did. That thing was harming people.
The door opened and Skulduggery walked in. He sat on the chair opposite Blake and placed his hat on the desk, his skull gleaming in the light.
Skulduggery: how long?
Skulduggery: how long have आप possessed Blake?
Blake: five years
Skulduggery: Remnants usually believe they're the person they've possessed
Blake: like Stephanie had. I've evolved and came to what senses I had. Also I ran into Morinund and he helped me do what he'd done. Faked a conscious
Skulduggery: still. You've killed people. Not in this body but in someone else's. So that added possession to your सूची of crimes
Blake: why do आप think I stayed?
Skulduggery: go on then. Why?
Skulduggery: what? You?
Blake: आप want redemption for what you've done. What ever that is and so does Valkyrie. आप feel like family
Skulduggery: what makes आप think I'm redeeming myself?
Blake: (smiles) it takes one to know one
Skulduggery: you're the Remnant that possessed Dexter, the one we've been after all this time. Aren't you?
Blake: unfortunately...... Yes
Skulduggery fists then came flying down apon Blake's face
Outside the interview room
Valkyrie, Tanith and Fletcher stood/sat in the hallway outside the interview room. The Rake had been taken down to a prison to contain it. Bane and Rue were with The Rake. Valkyrie looked at the ceiling where Tanith was sitting and Fletcher was sitting on the floor whilst Valkyrie stood. Valkyrie looked down at Fletcher and noticed black lines on his skin leading under his shirts.
Valkyrie: what's that, Fletcher?
Fletcher: (lifting sleeve) it a tattoo, told आप I'd get it
She saw what it was, it was what he कहा he'd get five years ago. In beautiful letters the word 'Stephanie'.
Valkyrie: आप still miss her, don't you?
Fletcher: of course. I loved her
Tanith: the worse part is not having a body to visit
Valkyrie: Tanith. I don't think Fletcher wants reminding
Fletcher rolled his sleeve back down and looked down at his shoes, Valkyrie knew that he was remembering her. How close she was to him when she died. Wondering if she heard the conversation he had with Valkyrie, what she might have been thinking. They all broke their train of thought when then heard the sound of a पंच coming from the interview room. Tanith jumped from the ceiling and all three ran into the room to see that Skulduggery had punched Blake square in the face.
Skulduggery: आप KNOW NOTHING ABOUT REDEMPTION. YOU'RE A REMNANT!
Blake: *groans* that's racist. Detective Pleasant. At least I think it is
Valkyrie: (pulls Skulduggery away) look, Skulduggery. What did he say?
Skulduggery: he's claiming he's still here because he's trying to redeem himself
Tanith: aren't we all doing that
Fletcher: and isn't redemption a better punishment that getting punched in the face
Blake: (smiling) yeah. I've had that happen to me a lot for the past 18 months
Skulduggery then turned to Blake and punches him again.
Valkyrie: and we'll need him
Skulduggery: how so?
Valkyrie: we have three fictional monsters on the loose. Fight आग with fire
Blake: yeah. Fight psychopath with psychopath. All though I'm less psychotic than I was five years ago.
Skulduggery: *sigh* fine. But when this is over (turns to Blake) you're going to prison for what आप did the Dexter
Blake: fine. Fine. Just un-cuff me please
Skulduggery pulled the key from his pocket. Tanith walked passed him and grabbed key. She walked behind Blake's chair and un-cuffed him. He stood up and grabbed his necromancy gauntlet from the डेस्क and slid it back onto his right arm, he then pulled the sleeve of his black trench कोट down to hid it.
Valkyrie: what did Skulduggery mean द्वारा what आप did to Dexter
Blake: that. Oh yeah. That's be I.... Might... Have been the one... Who possessed him
Blake: but enough of that. has Mr Grumpy दिया us any info
Skulduggery: did आप just call me Mr Grumpy
Blake: not you, आप idiot. The Rake
Valkyrie: not so far. I don't think i can talk
Blake: he should. His most famous क्रीपीपास्ता story is whispering into his victims ears at night to drive them mad
Tanith: then I guess it's just used for that. If your words drive people mad. Would आप talk all the time
Fletcher: defiantly not
Blake: (smiles) well I might
The team all looked at him
Skulduggery: we should get to China, see if any new info has shown up
Room of Prisms
China watched the team enter the room, when Blake entered the two Cleavers marched towards him but then Valkyrie, Tanith and Fletcher stood in their way.
Valkyrie: he's with us
Skulduggery: for now
China: can we trust him
Tanith: we've works with him for 18 months. Even if we didn't trust him, he's still useful
China: very well. They found another one
China: a creature called Eyeless Jack
Blake: wow. Slenderman, The Rake, Jeff the Killer and Eyeless Jack. The Big Four of क्रीपीपास्ता
Valkyrie: someone knows what their doing then
Skulduggery: the evidence points at Eliza Scorn. She has a motive and the skill
China: finally. A reason to take her down and claim my vengeance
Blake: and I thought Skulduggery was the vengeful one
Skulduggery: I'm not afraid to पंच आप again
Tanith: not now, boys
At that moment there came a wooshing noise from the hallway. Valkyrie and Skulduggery walked to the doorframe to investigate. When they peered into the corridor they saw four figures standing there. All facing away. two teenagers, one in a black hoodie and one in white one. A tall, bald man and the obvious figure of Eliza Scorn. They all turned to Skulduggery and Valkyrie and then it was revealed that the teenager in black was Eyeless Jack, his mouthless face was blue with his empty eye sockets, dripping black goo. The teenager in white was Jeff, his burned face with his cut on smile and missing eyelids. And of course Slenderman, faceless and menacing.
Skulduggery and Valkyrie quickly got their heads back in the room before two tentacles from Slenderman took them off. They turned to Fletcher.
Skulduggery: they're here. Fletcher get us out of here
Fletcher: with pleasure
The team and China all linked arms and saw the four individuals. Walk into the room. One of the Cleavers attacked them but Jack overpower him and begun to dig his mouthless face into the Cleavers stomach. The Cleaver screamed as black goo dripping were it would if Jack was eating him. The other Cleaver stood in from of China just as a tentacle came at her. It went through his visor and into his brain. He collapsed onto the floor, Blake put his foot on the Cleavers body and the team vanished, taking the dead Cleaver with them.
It was the only place so under Eliza's radar that no one would खोजिए there. It was old and a little dirty. Blake risked his neck getting China a clean blanket from a खरीडिए to put over one of his leather chairs.
Valkyrie: (sitting on the leather sofa अगला to China) how'd आप afford this place, Blake
Blake stood द्वारा the training area. It was made up of a punchbag. Some weights, a treadmill and a target full of arrows with the bow resting on the weight. He had removed his trench कोट and had put on the Cleavers कोट on (the sleeve on his right arm rolled up to use the gauntlet, whist it only went about the ankle for a Cleaver. It covered the ankle for Blake) he also had the scythe strapped to his back. The body lay on Blake's camp bed.
Blake: being a Detective pays a lot
Skulduggery: get ready to sell this stuff because you're not a Detective any more
Fletcher: looks who's being Mr Grumpy now. Ow
Fletcher was sitting अगला to Valkyrie whilst she cleaned his wounds. He'd gone back for the three remaining God-killing weapons and ran into Jeff. Fletcher got the weapons but nearly लॉस्ट his arm in the process.
Skulduggery picked up the God-killing bow and walked over to the target and started to pull the arrows out of it.
Skulduggery: (to Blake) got a quiver?
Blake: द्वारा the bed
Tanith: *sigh* fine
Tanith went over to the camp बिस्तर where the Cleaver's body lay, the quiver lay अगला to the bed. She quickly picked it up and ran from the bed. Pulling the curtains that hid the बिस्तर from view
Tanith: (to Blake, handing Skulduggery the quiver) was bringing him necessary?
Blake: never let an opportunity to obtain a new weapon and clothing go to waste
Valkyrie: you're sick
Blake: like you're such a saint, Valkyrie
Valkyrie got up and approached him in anger. Her hands glowing white. Blake pulled out the scythe with his left hand and shadows surrounded the right.
Valkyrie: are आप threatening me? Again?
Blake: depends. Are आप threatening me? And last time. I wantnt threateni you. I was threatening your sister
Skulduggery then raised the bow, loaded with an ऐरो and aimed at Blake.
Skulduggery: आप have no right to threaten anybody
Blake: think I'm scared of you. Of death? I faced Darquesse, and lived to tell about it. You'er nothing compared to her
Skulduggery: आप should be. How scared was the kid when आप possessed him
Blake stood there, frozen. Grip on the scythe tightened, and his veins and lips turned black. Everyone expected him to take a झूला, स्विंग at Skulduggery but no, he yelled and took a झूला, स्विंग at the punchbag and it was spit in half. Then he sent wave after wave of shadows towards the fallen half until was like shredded paper.
Fletcher: wow. Just wow
Figure: and I thought I had anger issues
Everyone turned to the door to see Jeff the Killer standing there. His cut on smile creeping the hell out of everyone
Jeff: Eliza says 'hi'
Jeff then jumped at Valkyrie who sent white lighting from her glowing hand, the lighting just bounced off and hit the दीवार अगला to him
China: umm. Blake can he do that?
Blake: (panic) umm. No. He's just human
Jeff then chuckled and disappeared almost like teleportation, Fletcher jumped up from his सीट and ran at where Jeff was, grabbing the God-killing dagger as he went.
Unknown rooftop in Dublin
The two boys were swinging around in a counter lock position. Both had one hand on the others arm which held a dagger. Fletcher kicked Jeff in the stomach constantly but it was having no affect. He then teleported 40ft into the air from the rooftop and shrugged Jeff off and teleported back. He watched Jeff fall back onto the rooftop. But he just got back up. Fletcher charged at Jeff, the dagger aiming firmly at Jeff's chest. Jeff quickly got up and held up his dagger just a little bit. Both daggers went into the other. Fletcher's dagger when into Jeff's chest and Jeff's dagger when into Fletcher's shoulder, both screamed and out of pure instinct Fletcher teleported
Both Jeff and Fletcher reappeared in the pent house and both fell to the ground. Valkyrie and Blake ran to Fletcher and dragged him to the sofa since the बिस्तर was in use. Skulduggery and Tanith went to Jeff. Skulduggery grabbed the God-killing spear and drove it into an already dead Jeff the Killer. Blake then shadow-walked opposite Skulduggery and used his scythe to behead the corpse to make sure.
Fletcher: (coughs) one (coughs) down (coughs) three to (coughs) go.
He fell unconscious.
