WARNING! CaptainS10 will kill me for this. That’s a hint of what’s coming up, because Holly is OOC in here. And weird. But there’s a bit of A/H as well.
Okay, I’m gonna go jump off a cliff. Farewell, army!
“I am soo not gonna fall asleep at this rate,” mumbled Shaadia. Sinking back to her pillow, she looked around, making sure the others wee asleep, and grabbed her phone from the bedside table.
Piper wasn’t exactly fast asleep. She was about to, when suddenly…GNOORH.
“Shaadia-“she started, but then saw the mud girl wide awake, pressing some buttons on her *D’Arvitting* phone. Piper soon realized it was voice recordings. Fake snoring.
“Sorry,” said Shaadia. “It’s fun.”
Artemis tried his best to ignore the complications here. Was Holly doing all of this on purpose? Confusing him?
The lines of thought were interrupted by a faint moan. The elf shrugged uneasily, squeezin him tighter.
Now that was interesting. Unfortunately, it was at that moment Holly’s eyes shot wide open, gasping in fear.
She noticed her position, curled up in a corner of the bed with her arms wrapped tightly around the human’s neck.
Violently shrugging off, she gave him a scowl. “I can’t beleive that whole darned thing was a dream!”
This puzzled him slightly. “What thing?”
There was a minute’s silence. Artemis felt the tension build. Things were seriously going overboard.
After a while, Holly broke the spell with a punch in his arm. “That-” she shouted.”That is what I’ll do if you ever even think of dying on me like that!”
“Is everyone here?” asked Piper, sternly facing the gathered LEP officers and others. “Good, because there’s a-”
“Nope,” said Foaly. “Two people are still asleep.”
Piper looked over the crowd. Silver happened to be filing her nails in a corner. Loken was further away, arms folded. Shaadia happened to be scratching Cheeta’s neck, for some reason. And surely every officer was present ,so-
“Captain Short and Artemis Fowl?”
“Yep,” replied the centaur, cheerily. “And however much you refuse to believe it, I have some live feed-”
His fingers swiftly glided over a keyboard. Something appeared on the main monitor.
Naturally, Artemis was the first of the two to wake up, considering all he had been through last night. He allowed himself a grin, enjoying the elf’s company. She still happened to be hugging him, even though she wasn’t aware of it. Her head was buried in his chest and her legs were strangling his own.
It would actually be really embarrassing if Foaly found out. Then, as if by chance, something on the ceiling caught his eye.
A camera. Apparently, Foaly had already found out.
“Damn you, centaur!” he shouted, tapping Holly gently on the shoulder to wake her up.
The elf slowly opened eyes, groaning softly. “Mmlp. Good morning, Arty.”
Before Artemis could tell her not to, Holly leaned in and kissed him.
