Mulch coughed. And it wasn’t long before Holly realized who was in the room. She violently pushed herself away from Artemis,staring at them instead.
“I-It wasn’t what it looked like,” Holly actually blushed. “Um, so can we get to the party already?”
Number One was still agape with shock. “Holly,did you just…”
“Were you two making out?”asked Beckett, triggering a deadly silence to drift in the air.
Artemis was the first to speak. Or more accurately,choke.”What?God, no.Of course not.Holly was merely attempting to tease me.”
“It doesn’t explain why you aren’t wearing anything,”pointed out Foaly.
Artemis instantly paled,but was somewhat grateful for the grey boxers he still had on. “You are mistaken.We did nothing of the sort.”
“We heard everything anyway,”sighed Mulch.”Go ahead,continue whatever you were doing before.”
“We weren’t making out,Mulch!”protested Holly,now more annoyed than embarrassed. To add to her frustration, the dwarf made a heart sign with his fingers and pointed at them both, before he and the rest of the onlookers turned to leave, leaving her alone with Artemis.
“That was…odd,”he commented.”Perhaps it wouldn’t have happened if you hadn’t hidden my towel.”
Holly scowled at him. “Know what?You can have your D’Arvitting towel.” She pulled it from underneath the four poster bed, tossing it in his face. “I’m getting the heck out of here.”
“Wait,”called Artemis.”Another thing before you leave,Captain Short.”
The elf frowned. “Yeah?”
There was a pause, before he proceeded with, “I agreed to take you to Paris and…everything else you mentioned.”
Holly raised an eyebrow,surprised. “Yes?”
“Does this mean there will be more…elf-kissing days ahead?”
She coloured embarrassedly,looking down at her feet.”That depends.”
“Factors such as?”
“Well, privacy.And if you actually want to do it.”
Artemis pretended to consider this.”Wouldn’t be a problem.”
Holly smirked, heading for the door. She hesitated, turning back with a playful twinkle in her eyes. “Hey,don’t get your hopes up.I’m not going anything beyond a kiss.”
The human laughed. “We shall see,Captain.All in due time.”
