If Theres Anything You Wanted to Say to Me
Before the thing with the Ghost King, I never really gave much thought to Valerie Gray. I know that sounds weird, considering she got that battle suit and became a ghost hunter completely out of the blueand I was her favorite target. But she wasnt even close to being my most dangerous adversary, even if she was one of the trickiest because I couldnt just wail on her like I could the ghosts. At first, she really wasnt much more than an occasional annoyance. Sure, she could aggravate the snot out of me, but usually Dash and Kwan were so busy making high school a living hell that Valerie barely made the radar.
After being forced to team up with her, first as parents to a sack of flour for health class, and then as Skulkers prey in the Ghost Zone, I got to know her a little better and see life through her eyes, and I decided she wasnt nearly as bad as I originally thought. But it wasnt until just before the Ghost King showed up, when she and I shared a hiding space from our respective tormentorsDash for me, Nathan for herwhen I really began to see her in a different light. Not as an annoyance, nor a rapidly improving ghost hunter who could potentially take me out some day, but as a friend.
