Continuation of part seven
Disclaimer:I don’t own Artemis and neither do you
I will once more say thanks to all my fans who have followed me this whole time:
” Ow! Be careful that hurts,”
“Oh, just shut up, we’re trying to help you”
They were trying to transport the group to another place, so that soldiers couldn’t find them. But Mulch was a problem, the ouch that Juliet heard was Mulch, when he fell some rubble landed on him, pinning to the ground while also crushing his legs. So furthermore he couldn’t walk. That made it pretty hard to move him until they found a piece of wood big enough to accommodate Mulch. From there onward, their pace was twice as fast, reaching a suitable place within the hour.
“This is good enough,” Short said hoarsely, tired from being the person to carry Mulch.
“Yes captain” Torry responded, and then started putting up a tent that seemingly came from nowhere. When she was done, she walked off, and sat down to meditate.
“Why is she doing that?” Doodah wondered aloud.
“She can see into the future occasionally, but meditating helps it happen more,” M. Fowl answered,”But lately it’s stopped happening,” she admitted.

This whole time we’ve been ignoring the trio that suffered a crash, but let’s not dwell on that and I will tell you what has occurred:
They made it to Haven.
They got weapons from the wreckage.
And Foaly walked in on Artemis and Holly making out.
They had settled in a small house somewhere near the middle of the city, close to The Compound because they reasoned, why would someone stay near The Compound on purpose, so Opal would reason that it is unnecessary to have guards posted so close. Thankfully they had been true, so they thought it would be alright for them to stay a little longer. They were wrong.
” ‘Ands up where I can see them!”
Artemis woke with a start.
“You are under arrest by order of Empress Kobio,” one said pulling out an official looking paper as he spoke.”It says that you are accused of:Treason, Robbery, Not complimenting her new boots and-”
Holly piped up “Nonsense!”, ” We owe nothing to that monster,”, “She killed Root, she killed thousands of innocent lives, if any one owes something it- OOF” gasping as the breath was knocked out of lungs by a guard picking her up.
“Stop it!” Artemis whined
“Don’t hurt her” the distressed boy glanced at Foaly for help, but the centaur was knocked out, a dart in his flank. So Artemis did what any genius would do when a damsel was in distress, he pummeled him with harmless blows, only managing to seriously annoy the guard.
“Artemis, run!” Holly yelled when she regained her breath.
Only when hearing the love of his life telling him, did Artemis turn and dive through the window, shielding his face as he went. When he hit despite the fact that the breath was ripped from his lungs, he hit running, until he came face to face with a patrol’s worth of guns was pointed in his face.
