This idea has been bugging me for a while, and I’m pleased with how it turned out. Song- Just a Dream by Carrie Underwood. Review please!

It was two weeks after the day she turned 18
all dressed in white, going to the church that night
She had his box of letters in the passenger seat, 
six pence in her shoe
something borrowed something blue
and when the church doors opened up wide she put her veil down trying to hide the tears oh
she just couldn’t believe it 
she heard the trumpets from the military band and the flowers fell out of her hands

Holly jerked back, feeling like just she’d been sucker-punched. She felt tears form, unwanted, unasked for. The papers she’d been holding dropped from her numb fingers, white leaves dropping around her, snow threatening to bury her. The image replayed on the screen, in her mind. He was in an impossible position, protecting a fallen pixie and fighting her off on his own. It had happened then, he raised his arm, offering an opening. She took it, Opal shooting him square in the chest. He took his last second to shoot her, mid celebration, paying his life for hers. The only possible option. His hand seemed to flash as he fell, the thin engagement ring sparkling a goodbye. 

Baby, why’d you leave me, why’d you have to go
I was counting on forever, now I’ll never know
I cant even breathe
It’s like I’m, looking from a distance, standing in the background
Everybody’s saying, he’s not coming home now, 
This can’t be happening to me 
This is just a dream

Holly vaguely realized she had sunk to her knees, crying in the middle of the main situation room. Her ring winked back as she brought her hands to her face. He was gone. She was left, infinitely guilty. That should have been her. There was a clatter as Foaly dropped his headset, sprinting to his friend, everyone reacting to her slowly, absorbing the event. Holly was lifted into a hug, Foaly trying to comfort her. She sobbed, not caring that everyone was staring, whispers starting to circulate. She didn’t care. Her fiancée was dead.

The preacher man said let us bow our heads and pray
lord please lift his soul and heal this hurt
then the congregation all stood up and sang the saddest song that she ever heard 
then they handed her a folded up flag and 
she held on to all she had left of him oh and what could’ve been 
and then guns rang one last shot and it felt like a bullet in her heart

His recycling ceremony was probably the worst moment of her life. His face was still, empty, lifeless. His hand was curled around the ring, holding onto it. She took a last look, fighting tears, watching him lowered into the vat. Her eyes were over-bright with unshed tears, her voice shaky. 

Baby, why’d you leave me, why’d you have to go
I was counting on forever, now I’ll never know
I can’t even breathe
It’s like I’m, looking from a distance, standing in the background
Everybody’s saying, he’s not coming home now, 
This can’t be happening to me 
This is just a dream

She watched, listened to the speeches, remembering moments she’d shared with him, jokes, smiles. And when it was her turn, walking to the podium, facing the crowd, was harder than facing any troll, harder than facing an angry Root. She choked out her speech, retreating quickly, biting her lip to keep from breaking down again.

Oh,Oh Baby, why’d you leave me, why’d you have to go
I was counting on forever, now I’ll never know
Oh i’ll never know
It’s like I’m, looking from a distance, standing in the background
Everybody’s saying, he’s not coming home now, 
This can’t be happening to me 
This is just a dream

She watched the vat lowered, recycling not only him, but her dreams with it. There would be no wedding now, no honeymoon, no family. Just the rest of her life filled with pain, filled with longing, unfulfilled wishes. Holly went home in a daze, curling into a ball on her bed, finally sobbing. The recycling ceremony had made it final, real. 

Oh this is just a dream
just a dream, oh

And not even magic or one of Artemis’s plots could bring back Trouble Kelp.

  2. Omg this is soo…. sad!! *Cries* I don’t like people dieing! It was even hard for me to has Julius died in one of my stories or in the books. :'( 🙁 I was always a A/H shipper, but I fell sorry for Holly and Trouble. That was great.

    *Runs into bathroom and cries some more*

    I felt mad it was Trouble. For some reason, I have a weird hatred of him. So…I don’t mind that he’s dead. 🙂 Good songfic, though.

  4. I knew it! I knew it was hiiim!
    This was really good, I nearly broke down in tears when she said it was him. Maybe because I have a crush on Trouble… *Shame*
    But it was really good, I dun see any spelling or grammar mistakes, and it had a good plot so: 5 stars!

  5. Yay, comments! *does happy dance*

    Alphaboymax-I’m glad you liked it! And I made Max cry? Hmmm…

    Amber Root- I’m happy I made a member of another ship care for mine 🙂 And when Root died in the book I had a mini-breakdown.

    FantasyDevourer- For some reason, I see people have that response to Trouble quite a bit… But thank you, you liked the so FDIC even though not the character.

    Mira- I was worried it was too obvious it was him. Was it? And I’m pleased you liked it enough to give it five stars!

  6. Omg, yes!I’m not alone having a crush on trouble! It wasn’t really obvious that it was him. Like, you can kind of tell, but not for sure. Um, I wasn’t really watching for mistakes, so I didn’t see any, and it was awesome! 5 Stars!

    Oh, and it’s okay about your mini breakdown over Root. I had one too. I was still freaking out over it after I had finished the series and introduced it to my friends.

    5/s!

    I thought that was Artemis at first. Since when did she like Trouble???

  8. In_Love_With_Arty- Have you read the OpalDeception or the Atlantis Complex? Or the Fowl Files?

    In the OpalDeception he really hesitates to hurt her, defying orders to do so.

    In the Artwmis Fowl Files, Holly states he is one of her best friends.

    And in the Atlantis Complex, HOLLY AND TROUBLE WENT ON A DATE!!! *fangirl squealing* Hem, sorry about that. I ship those two. so that excited me. That’s moments when she liked Trouble, or he liked her.

    OMG IF YOU READ IT JUST AT THE RIGHT MOMENT, WHILE WATCHING THE MUSIC VIDEO ON YOU TUBE, it really gets you right there, (*Pointing to heart,sniffling*) you know?

    U should try it. It’s so cool.

  11. omg, i thought it was talking bout Artemis at first. *mentally slaps self for not thinking.*
    I first read the Eternity Code in 4th grade (over 2 years ago)and just read the Opal Deception and THEN I listened to the first 2 books on YouTube and so I missed a few parts so…
