That Night: Part 8

Back in Valkyrie’s room, the frolicking had stopped, at least momentarily.

Valkyrie was sitting on the couch alongside Tarthon, still holding him in his arms.

“I haven’t felt like this about someone in…I don’t know how long,” she told him.

“Me neither,” he said, gazing at her with eyes full of longing and love. He stroked her hair. “I feel like I’ve known you all of my life but…I don’t even know your name.”

She saddened. “I don’t like sharing my real name because it makes me remember my past but, I guess you should know.”

He smiled. Continue reading That Night: Part 8

That Night: Part 7

Valkyrie piloted her ship until it was over the arena where she parked it and tilted it vertically to the sky as she opened the roof. Tarthon gasped as he held onto her chair.

“What are you doing?” he asked.

She climbed out of her seat and sat on the edge of the roof, patting the space beside her.

“Come look at this,” she told him.

He carefully walked across the ship’s wall before sitting beside her. The view blew his mind. Continue reading That Night: Part 7

In terms of Marvel, the cast for Ant-Man and the Wasp was revealed, Captain Marvel is going to be an origin film set in the 90s’, and Black Panther released a little bit more from the movie.

That Night: Part 6

As Valkyrie and Tarthon walked past the giant arena where the Tournament of Champions transpired a sudden uproar from within the auditorium filled the walkways with a raucous tantrum.

Tarthon’s pace slowed as he looked up at the arena wall, his eyes wide with wonder. Valkyrie saw his expression and smiled.

“Have you seen the Tournament fights?” she asked.

As another swell of ruckus within the arena bubbled up onto the pathway chills coursed down her spine.

“No, I haven’t,” Tarthon said, his eyes still focused on that incredible auditorium sitting just yards away.

Valkyrie nudged him. “Drinks can wait. Follow me.”

That Night: Part 5

“Oh, if it isn’t Blue Butt,” Valkyrie said, punching her fists together in the way she always did before a fight.

Gaugle grinned at her, revealing a row of needle-like fangs. “I told you I’d get even,” he said. “I hope you hadn’t forgotten.”

His five colorful cronies hissed gleefully behind him, baring their similar razor-thin fangs.

“Great. The more the merrier,” she responded.

Gaugle began to approach but then suddenly stopped, his slitted yellow eyes suddenly recognizing that she wasn’t alone. He snarled.

“Who’s this?” he growled indignantly.

She shrugged. “A friend.”

Tarthon stepped forward. “Yeah I’m her friend,” Valkyrie glanced over at him with a smile, “and I’d like to give you some advice. Forget your petty squabbles because you don’t know who you’re messing with.”

Gaugle laughed mockingly. “Don’t try to protect your girlfriend. It’s time for her to learn a lesson. And if you try to stop us you’ll get it too.”

As the goons continued their approach Valkyrie and Tarthon locked eyes.

“You first,” Tarthon said.

“No, you go ahead,” Valkyrie replied. “I want to see what you can do.”

Tarthon grinned savagely. “It’ll be my pleasure.”

Before he could “show her” she placed a hand on his arm.

“But leave Gaugle to me,” she said.

He nodded. “As you wish my lady.”

He launched himself forward to the encroaching opponents. Gaugle easily sidestepped him but Tarthon wasn’t going after him. He tackled two of Gaugle’s minions, lifted them high into the air, and slammed them together knocking them unconscious.

The other three goons saw this, turned to each other, and went running. Tarthon laughed in response. Gaugle roared angrily.

“You cowards!” he yelled at his panicked goons. “I’ll get you for this!”

Valkyrie crossed her arms. “Still want to fight?”

He hissed at her, unveiling a knife. “You’re going to pay for scamming me.”

He charged her, his knife raised high to inflict lethal pain. He thrust downward at her and she easily dodged the attack and grabbed his arm. With a punch to his wrist, he dropped the knife with a pained cry. Still holding his arm she smiled at Gaugle.

“Here’s a lesson for you to learn-” she leaned toward Gaugle, “stop messing with people.”

With that, she flung him screaming through the air where he disappeared behind the ridge.

Tarthon whistled. “Wow.” His widened gaze turned to her. “I think I’m in love.”

Valkyrie chuckled. “That beatdown calls for a celebration. Want to head back to my place? I got plenty of tasty beverages that aren’t designed to kill waiting for me and I’m kind of in the mood for sharing.”

He grinned. “Sounds like a plan.”


That Night: Part 4

Even though Valkyrie wasn’t pleased with having the man praise her for something she’d rather ignore she still hadn’t had this much fun with someone in a very long time. The man, who she had learned was named Tarthon after she told him she was an Asgardian, was a jovial person. He laughed at nearly everything he said and his likes and dislikes were very much like hers. The last time she had this much of a connection with someone was…

That’s where she stopped herself. Thinking of the past never did anything good for her. Continue reading That Night: Part 4
