“Holly, we just passed them,” Artemis noticed.
“No, they are coming up.”
“Stop the car before I pull a Reyna,” commanded Artemis.
“Pull a Reyna? Since when did you say things like that?” Holly asked.
“Then stop the car before I jump out the window. I’ve been spending to much time around you and Juliet,” Artemis muttered.
The car suddenly stopped.
“To much time around us?” Holly asked incredulously.
“I’m sorry Holly. This is madness,” he said as he took off running.
“Stupid mud-boy,” Holly muttered. “Even though he is a juvenile genius.”
Artemis was walking, no sprinting. The great Artemis Fowl II was sprinting for the first time. Reyna, the elf, and the thing were in sight.
Suddenly, he fell on his face.
He woke up with a girl with red hair, an eye like his, and a hazel eye.
“You’ve been unconscious for an hour, Arty,” Holly said.
“We have to get moving. The thing is trying to attack Reyna!” he shouted.
“No more running for you, we’re flying,” Holly said, grabbing Artemis and activating her wings.
When they got there, the thing screamed. “My precious! You dare wear my precious!”
“You call that a thing?” Holly asked Artemis. “It’s Gollum.”
“You’ve never seen the Hobbit or Lord of the Rings? Or read the books?” Holly asked.
Artemis shook his head. “Reyna is in trouble.”
Reyna glanced down. “It’s a fake.”
Holly glanced at Artemis. “That’s not going to help her.”
“NO!” Gollum screamed.
Reyna hoisted the Neutrino up an fired. It hit him squarely in the chest. Reyna let down her guard for a second. Of course, it was in the second that Gollum got up.
“REYNA!” Artemis screamed as Gollum jumped on her back.
Huh, she wondered. Someone called my name.
Suddenly, there was something heavy on her back.
“Get off me you little-”
Gollum clawed in her back. “Give it to me, GIVE IT!”
“Ow, ow, OW!” Reyna shouted. I can’t take this much longer, she thought.
Then, the elf that she jumped out a window to save woke up.
“‘Bout time, sleepy head,” she said while Gollum bit her finger.
“NO!!!” Artemis screamed. This couldn’t be happening. Since Holly refuesed to stop, Reyna would probably die.
Artemis charged forward with a new found strength. “Reyna, I’m coming!”
Reyna couldn’t see. Or hear. Or smell. Not even taste. What’s happening? Reyna wondered, freaking out. In the Return of the King, this didn’t happen to Frodo.
Reyna moved her arm, the one tht didn’t have Gollum biting it. She brought it to her hand, the hand with Gollum on it.
She lept back in pain.
There was two sets of hands on her, not Gollum’s, human and elf.
Artemis went up to Zane.
“We have to do something, she saved me from Simon,” Zane said.
“Yes, but not for the reason you think,” Artemis agreed. Together, they put their hands on her.
“Now, I need to take her to the LEP,” Zane instructed.
“You mean with Holly?”
“No, I work there,” the elf said, and Artemis found himself wondering why he never asumes the obvious.
Sorry about how long it took. My life has been, school, books, annoying siblings, school, school, and school. Hopefully I can update again one the following weekend. Until then, ThunderSpirit.
