Whoopee, interesting title, eh? Sure wonder what crazy stunt that weird shaadia’s pulling THIS TIME. Oh, wait, she’s anyway like that…well, you have every right to kill her horribly if she’s been keeping you waiting!
9:30 p.m, Above ground fairy HQ
“Uh, repeat that again,” said the mud girl, giving a scowl that completely destroyed her young features. “Pony Boy, did you just say that we were going to-“
“Bed,” completed Foaly, rolling his eyes.
“Not a chance. In HELL.”
(Let us not describe the ehrm…scene of major violence that occured here.)
“Can you imagine they’re getting us to sleep now when it’s only ten o’clock?” muttered Shaadia, stubbornly folding her arms.
“Shut it, human,” moaned Piper. “Just let us sleep in peace.”
“You’re going to sleep?” exclaimed the mud girl.
Silver drew a long moan. Maybe humans being so freaking annoying was the only reason they had gone to war. Reasonable explanation. “Yes, we are. Now would you mind doing the same?”
“Heh. There’s about as much chance of that happening as there is of me killing an ant…”
Silver raised an eyebrow, as in, really?
Piper did a double flip on the bed. “Yeah, we’re gonna need some rest to fight tomorrow, specially after all that horseplay today…”
“I HEARD THAT!” yelled an indignant centaur from the adjoining room. “Sorry!” called back the elf.
“Do what you want,” said Shaadia, grinning mischeviously. “But I’ve got something urget to do.”
The pair walked in circles around HQ, eyes gazing up at the full moon above.
“You did promise me, Arty,” she whispered. “Will it happen?”
Artemis sighed deeply. “To be honest, there is a rather small chance of it, after three years, but the war cannot last forever.”
Holly squeezed his hand tightly. “Sure?”
“Oh yeah, Artemis Fowl is always right.”
The human chuckled at the statement. “You never doubted it, did you?”
The elf gave him a smug grin. “Sure I did.”
“Hmph. I doubt that, Captain.”
Holly reached out and held his arm, drawing closer. “As long as you do keep your word.”
