Shaadia stomped back, sinking into her pillow.
“Sleeping. At only 11 o’clock…” she murmured.
Then, aloud: “So, em…Piper, where’d you learn to fight?”
Piper rolled over the sheets. “LEP academy, duh.”
“Cool! I bet they didn’t give homework!”
“Oh, yeah, my favourite dream was that.”
Silver coughed. “Can we please sleep?”
“Hey, Sil, where’dya learn the awesome sword tecniques?”
The elf scowled.
Artemis Fowl, for once in his life, had no idea what to do.
Stay awake? Fall asleep? Make sure Orion never came to know of this?
Without a word of warning, Holly hugged him tightly. Still asleep, of course.
Artemis allowed himself a grin. Maybe it wasn’t so bad.
She was saying something.
The next part caused him to shudder.
The human would have nearly fainted right there. Loken?! She was still thinking of LOKEN?!
Her grip tightned. Not a good sign. Artemis felt his muscles tense. Was this even happening? It couldn’t be. It simply couldn’t.
The lights were finally off.
All three girls- if you could call Shaadia a girl- remained quiet and didn’t utter a single word. But naturally, a human wouldn’t shut up for long.
She rolled off the bed and switched on the lights.
“Sorry,” muttered the mud girl, rumaging through the bedside table drawers, searching for something. Eventually she pulled out a pen and a piece of paper.
Piper couldn’t help being curious. “What’s that for?”
Shaadia started writing.John Cena, you are the most AWESOME superstar EVER!!♥
Silver pulled a long face. “Now is not the time to be writing FAN LETTERS!!”
The mud girl ignored her. Piper shook her head and turned off the lights.
This was all getting very confusing. Even somebody as smart as Artemis could realize that.
Or perhaps this elf was just too strange to figure out.
