Fletcher Renn, Myra, Draco Lupus, Night Rock and China Sparrow arrived at the hid out. Tanith was after Fletcher so that she could use him to release Darquesse, who the team had found out to be Valkyrie Cain, Fletcher's ex. China looked around to see if anyone was watching them, no one so she knocked on the door and 说 "now guys, this is another person who Skulduggery doesn't like so..."
"Wait" 说 Fletcher "so if skull-head sees us with 你 and the person in that house, he'll kill all four of us, me first"
"Oh yeah, 你 should of thought of that China" 说 Draco "but we don't have time, we need to hid until Tanith leaves Dublin"
"Well then that means that we can leave the house at... 2020" 说 Night "she'll never leave until she knows your not here", at that point the door opened and Solomon Wreath stood there, with his necromancy Cain in hand "China Sparrow, Fletcher Renn and young Rock, how nice to see 你 again, your not here to kill me?" He said
"No" 说 Fletcher "we need your help"
Inside Solomon's home
"So 你 pretend to be a doctor in a university" 说 Fletcher as Solomon pored some cups of coffee for Fletcher, Draco, Myra and Night, China stood in the 厨房 迷失 in her thoughts "yeah it's sort of a double life" 说 Solomon
"Nice work" 说 Night "how much detail did 你 put in the double life?"
"A lot, I spent hours trying to make up the perfect cover life; parents, education, relationships, 你 name it, I planned it out" 说 Solomon.
The house inside was a lot cleaner then the outside, outside was riddled with graffiti but inside reminded China of her old library, destroyed two years 以前 while her 老友记 abandoned her, they were right to of course, when she remembered that day, she hoped her new 老友记 wouldn't abandon her, she looked over to the rest of the team explaining he situation to Solomon, a few 分钟 later they stopped and he 说 "well it looks like your done for Fletcher, Tanith's not gonna quit until ya blood has stained her boots"
"Thank 你 for summing that up(!)" 说 Fletcher
"So what do we do?" Asked Myra
"Not much" 说 Solomon "stay as much as 你 want but she'll find you"
"Yeah, they have to get through the rest of us first" 说 Draco standing up, clicking his fingers and summoning a flame.
"I admire 你 determination" 说 Solomon "but she'll kill 你 within five 秒 of the fight"
"Damn" 说 Night
"Yes, Damn indeed my dear" 说 China.
Tanith was really annoyed right now, Sanguine could see that in her face, she held tightly to her sword as she marched to the door "this is the house, the smiley whore China's car is here" she said, with one almighty kick the door went flying off the hinges, almost hitting Draco in the face "parties over" she said, just as Draco, Night and Fletcher got up to defend themselves Solomon tapped his Cain on the floor, shadows surrounded the team and they were gone "BLOODY SHADOW WALK!" She screamed.
"Shush" 说 Solomon pointing to the building with no door, Sanguine had just walked through it to comfort Tanith, the team slowly walked away to a nearby cafe, sat at two different tables and discussed.
"Ok guys this is big" 说 Fletcher "we need and idea and fast"
"We could um....." 说 Myra
"Get some protection form the Sanctuary" 说 China, everyone turned to her and Night 说 "you do know that three of us are people that Skulduggery doesn't like, that's half of this bloody group"
"So" 说 Draco "we need to find a way to get Tanith off our backs and..."
"Wow" 说 Myra out of the window "speak of the devil, hid guys", they all turned to see Tanith and Sanguine walking straight to the cafe, when they turned back Myra was hiding under the table, so they did the same, when Tanith bursted through the door, she quickly ran to to man at the till and sliced his head off his body, turned to where the team was hiding and 说 "ya know I've seen zombies hid better than that" after that the team came out form their hiding places and Draco lunged at Tanith but was grabbed 由 Sanguine and thrown back to Night "very well done" 说 Tanith "we could us a guy like you, what do ya say", Draco then go to his feet and 说 "the 日 a 加入 你 is the 日 Hell freezes"
"That can be easily arranged" 说 Tanith
"Cut to the chase, Tanith" 说 Fletcher "if ya gonna kill me, make it fast"
"By it must be done in front of Val for it to work", then an idea formed in Myra's head, she grabbed a 刀 and Fletcher and held the 刀 to his throat "one 更多 移动 from 你 blonde and I'll turn his head into a 海滩 ball", Tanith then stood back
"You don't have the guts" 说 Tanith
"Wanna bet on that" 说 Draco as he put a flame covered hand 下一个 to his brothers neck
"Yeah" 说 Night as a shadow 刀 came form her ring and approached Fletcher neck, they all stood there in silent for a few moments when Sanguine threw his razor at Myra but Fletcher caught and brought it to his own throat "we're gonna offer a choice, let us go and don't bother us 或者 你 loss 你 Darquesse Trigger" he said, Tanith lowered her sword and 说 "ya know Fletcher, I know about your old life, your double life and I know that it's coming for you, I guarantee 你 in the 下一个 few weeks you'll be wishing that I killed 你 know" she the put sword back on her 带, 皮带 and walked away, the 火, 消防 in Draco's flickered out, the shadow 刀 faded, Myra lowered the 刀 and Fletcher threw the razor back at Sanguine as he walked out the door, Myra then turned to her boyfriend and 说 "what did she mean double life"
"Something that me and Draco here have been running from for years" 说 Fletcher
"If she's right about it catching up on us then we can expect a few weird things in the 下一个 few weeks" 说 Draco
"Like what?" Asked China, then the only things that Fletcher and Draco do was look at each other, look back at China and tap their noises.
"You'll just have to wait" 说 Fletcher.
