This story is based on my favourite song, Id Lie, By Taylor Swift. I was listening to it this morning and it really reminded me of Artemis and Holly’s relationship so I wrote this story. For thoes of you who havent heard the song the lyrics are in itallics. Hope you enjoy!
I dont think that passenger seat, has ever looked this good to me, he tells me about this night, and I count the coulours in his eyes.
Wow, Holly thought to herself as she looked over at Artemis sitting on the chair of the private shuttle as they hurtled back to the surface. That seat looks so good with him in it, she silently thought. Holly new she loved Artemis, She had loved him for a long time now. This was something which she could never let anyone know.
So, How did you like your trip to Haven Artemis? You haven’t been down for quite a while.
No your right, It was quite wonderful to be back at…
The rest of what Artemis was saying trailed of into the back of her mind as Holly caught sight of his deep blue eyes, staring back at her, like he was looking right into her sole.
He’ll never fall in love he swears as he runs his fingers through his hair, Im laughing cause I hope he’s wrong. And I dont think it ever crossed his mind, he tells a joke I fake a smile, but I know all his favourite songs.
Holly interupted Artemis in the middle of his sentence…
Do you think you will ever fall in love?
What, oh, Im not sure, Probably not, I cant imagine feeling that way about anyone to be honest.
Holly laughed and agreed, silently wishing to herself that he could love her as much as she knew she loved him. She watched him run his long, slender, fingers through his raven, black hair. He doesn’t know I love him, does he, He doesnt know that I think about him and know everything about him ,does he, Holly thought to herself.
And I could tell you his favourite coulours green, He like to argue, Born on the seventeenth, His sisters beautiful, He has his fathers eyes, and is you asked me if I love him… Id Lie.
And Holly could tell you that, and if you asked her if she loved him, She Would lie.
He looks around the room. Innocently overlooks the truth, should’nt a light go on. Does’nt he know that Iv’e had him memorised for so long.
Artemis looked around the room then turned to face Holly, then when he looked away she could still picture every feature of his face, every side to him, everything about him remained with her where ever she went.
He see’s everything in black and white, never lets nobody see him cry, I dont let nobody see me wishing he was mine.
They arrived back at Fowl Manor and Artemis invited Holly to stay over as his parents were away for the weekend. When they got inside Butler was waiting and had some very bad news.
Juliet is very sick, they say critical, I must go and be with her.
Yes butler, do go, send her my highest sympathies and tell her to get well soon. We will be fine here.
When they got upstairs, Artemis was clearly upset at the news and asked Holly to let him be alone for awile. When he returned to the room his cheeks were stained red from tears and his eyes were blotchy.
Artemis, have you been crying?
What, no, thats ubsurd, of course not. Lets go to dinner.
And I could tell you his favourite colours green, he loves to argue, born of the seventeenth, his sisters beautiful, he has his fathers eyes, and if you asked me if I love him… Id Lie.
And Holly could tell you that, and if you asked her if she loved him, She would lie.
He stands there then walks away, my god if I could only say, Im holding every breath for you.
The next morning, Holly and Artemis woke up and found a message on the answerphone. It told them to get to the hospital as soon as possible because Juliet was making a speedy recovery and would like them to be there for her. They waited outside the hospital together after talking to Juliet and reasuring she was okay. Artemis decided to go back in. Holly watched him get up and felt like pulling him back. Felt like telling him everything, How much she loved him, That every breath she took, she took in the hope that one day he would love her back. She knew she could never do that, and that if she did it could spoil the relationship they had as freinds. She would rather have him as a freind than nothing at all.
He’d never tell you, but he can play guitar, and I think he can see through everything but my heart, first thought when I wake up is my god he’s beautiful, so I put on my makeup and pray for a miracle.
That night, Holly lay awake in the huge suite that Artemis had let her sleep in, wondering if it was possible, just the tiniest amount of possibility that he loved her, even just a little bit. She was just about to slip away into her sleep when something hard hit her window. She got up, walked out onto the balcony and saw that it was and Armani loafer. She looked down and saw Artemis playing the guitar. He sung her a beautiful song and Holly stood there gobsmacked until he climbed up onto the balcony.
That was beautiful, Artemis. Where did you learn to play like that?
Im glad you liked it. Butler taught me actually. I just had to tell you, I love you Holly, I have for a long time, I just never knew how to tell you so I didnt. But i mean it, I love you and I was wondering if perhaps… You love me back.
Holly cupped Artemis’s face in her hands and kissed him, the kiss she had been dreaming of for so many years. Her dreams were truly coming true.
Yes I could tell you, his favourite coulous green, he likes to argue, oh and it kills me. His sisters beautiful, he has his fathers eyes and if you asked me if I love him… Id Lie.
And Holly could tell you those things, and If you asked her if she loved him… Now she would not have to lie.
