Captain Luther activated a holographic picture. The picture was of an elf about Luther’s age. The caption on the holograph said “LEPrecon Captain Holly Short. Missing in action.” Luther sighed.
“Oh, Holly. What happened to you?”
Anastasia walks forward as if in a trance. Fowl grabs her, and pushes her into the house. All I could do was watch. All I could do was-. Sorry, mission control, but I have to do this. I head inside. I follow Fowl’s quiet footsteps. He must be hiding his scheme from somebody… A light turns on nearby. I turn my FoalySheild on. Thank Frond for a FoalySheild! I would never have survived without one!
“Arthur, honey! What are you doing?” It’s Juliet.
“Nothing, mom!” The boy shouts. So that’s who he’s keeping this from. The boy is getting away. I follow him into the dungeons. He goes to cell 366. I’ve got to remember that. He roughly throws the now unconscious Anastasia into the cell, and locks the door. I wince. As we head out, Fowl peeks into another cell’s little widow. He sneers.
“Our family has caught you twice, little faerie! This shows that Fowls are a force to be reckoned with!” The faerie inside begins to cry. I rush to the door. Inside, I see the faerie I would never have expected to see in a million years.
“Holly…” I breathe. I quickly leave.

Anastasia woke her father up by singing loudly in his room.
“Urgh… Annie… I’m sleeping…” He mumbled, turning over.
“Daddy! Daddy! The mail’s here! The mail’s here!” She sang. Luther sighed, and opened his computer.
“You have 3 new messages.” It said. Luther opened them up. The first two were adds for new wings. The third… Luther opened it, expecting another add.
“Captain Luther Gimmit,
We regret to inform you that your wife, Captain Holly Short, is missing. She disappeared in a practice mission to the surface. We believe that this disappearance is at the hands of one or more of the Fowls. We have comprised a list of possible suspects.
1.) Artemis FowlII
2.) Juliet Butler
3.) Arthur Fowl
The Missing Faerie Society(MFS)”
Luther’s eyes widened.
“Holly…” He breathed.
I returned to the manor today to get Anastasia and Holly. I sneak quickly down to the dungeons. I rush to cell 366. The door is unlocked. Strange. I push it open and grab Anastasia. She’s limp.
“What did Fowl do to you?” I ask. No answer. I wasn’t expecting one anyway. I search for Holly’s cell. Most of the cells are empty, but there are a few that have Mud Men in them. Probably other criminals. I finally find Holly’s cell (Cell 924) and open it using my amazing lock-picking skills. She tumbles out and hugs me and Anastasia tightly.
“Oh I missed you,” she whispers.

“Daddy? do you know where Mommy is?” Anastasia asked.
“Yes, Annie, I know where she is,” her father told her. Anastasia shook her head.
“I’ve seen that letter. Mommy’s gone, don’t lie, Daddy,” she said solemnly. Luther sighed. He wanted Anastasia to be her usual happy self, but Holly’s disappearance didn’t help. Where are you Holly? he thought.
