Artemis Fowl; age ten
If you were an animal, describe what you would be and why.
Simple homework. Very childish. Artemis could do it easily. He never had any problem with homework.
Exept that he did not often accociate himself with dumb animals.
Ah, well. If he had to, so be it. It was a minor obstacle, anoying but minor. Like a fly to be swated at.
Artemis walked into Fowl Manor.
“How is Father doing?”Artemis asked instantly. His father, Artemis Fowl Seinor, had recently left home on a ship by the name of Fowl Star. But Mother wasn’t there. Strange.
He walked into the computer room.
“Mother, I’m hom-” Artemis stoped in the middle of his word. Angeline Fowl turned around from one of the many computers in the room. Her delicate face was streaked with tears.
“Mother! What happened?”
“The Fowl Star. It-” She burst into tears. Artemis could feel his heart beating faster and faster, with every sob, every tear.
No. His world exploded into chaos. Artemis became suddenly tired. That was millions of dollars gone to waste, not to mention his-
Father. Artemis went upstairs to work on his homework.
If I were animal, I would be a raven. A childish begining, but he couldn’t think strait.
First, my hair is raven black. But that is not the only reason. I am clever, and like ravens have been observed using simple tools, I plot, and can, as a genius, solve any problem or obstacle I come across.
His father. Gone.
The raven is quiet, and yet common. It knows when to be seen, and when to make itself scarce.
But, most importaintly,
Artemis thought for a second. If his father was gone… Artemis would have to take matters into his own hands. What would become of his mother?
It was all left to Artemis Fowl II.
But, most importiantly, like my father before me, my heart is as black and stiff as a raven’s feather.
