Chapter 1

*Fletcher pulled Valkyrie towards him, and before she could protest, he kissed her. She stiffened in his arms, but as his right thumb brushed her cheek, she relaxed into him. Her belly did flips. And then the kiss was over.*


3 days later…

Valkyrie couldn’t stop thinking about the time Fletcher had kissed her. She wondered why he did it, if he would do it again.

Fletcher appeared behind Valkyrie and she jumped.

“Sorry.” He said.

“It’s ok, I’m just not used to you appearing behind me all the time yet.”

“So.” He said looking at his feet and rubbing the back of his neck.

“We need to talk”

“About what? There’s nothing to talk about, is there? No. Sorry. What?”

Valkyrie laughed, “I mean just you and me. Nothing detective related or anything.”

“Oh, OK” he said looking relieved.

“Would you mind taking us somewhere where we could talk, privately?”

“Oh, sure” He bent down, lowering his head and holding out his arm for valkyrie to hold onto, and in a blink they were gone.

“Where are we?” Valkyrie asked.

“Oh, um, well, this is just where I like to go in my spare time, it’s kind of where I live, basically.” He said laughing nervously.

“It’s cool.” Valkyrie said looking around curiously.

“really? y-you like it?”

“yeah. it’s awesome.”

“I-I mean yeah it is. So what was it that you wanted to talk to me about, that wasn’t like you know detective stuff?”

“Oh, um.” Valkyrie started to get nervous.”You know, that time when you had to open the portal for me to um go through and, get Skulduggery back, and you um…..”

“Kissed….you?”

“Yeah”

“Oh, yeah. um I’m really sorry about that, I didn’t mean to, I just kind of well, you know kissed you.” He says going back to his neck rubbing and looking down at his feet.

“You know, I wasn’t asking for an apology Fletcher, I actually kind of well liked it.”

“y-you did?” Fletcher asked looking up at her surprisingly shocked.

“yeah”

“oh, well in that case...” Fletcher moved up closer to Valkyrie, gazing into her eyes like he got distracted by them and forgot about the conversation they had just had. Valkyrie gazed back then leaned in close. Fletcher went for Valkyrie’s waist and she let him, going in for the kiss. She felt butterflies swarm in her stomach as his lips touched hers, then the kiss was over.

Valkyrie was left looking into Fletcher’s eyes.

“Well” He said ”That felt good…, that felt really good.”

“yeah” Valkyrie said “I guess it did.”

Fletcher put his arm around Valkyrie’s waist and kissed her softly but passionately. When they broke off Valkyrie found her voice.

“Fletcher, you know I really am sorry about all those times that I called you irritating, I really didn’t mean it-”

“Valkyrie, don’t be sorry it’s fine, OK?”

“OK.”
