Opal felt a shiver run down her spine as she headed towards the path ahead, engulfed in darkness. The darkness, equal to that of it in her own mind. She was not gone. She was back on Earth, in search for the one thing that would fullfil her wish. On the deepest depths of the dark, forbidding forests. There, a single foot ahead, she found what she was searching for.
The sword. The most treasured possession of the First Elfin King, the sword used to slay numerous Mud Men during the Battle of Tailte.
Artemis Fowl shall pay for all he has done.
Chapter two: AQUA
Artemis frowned at her. “Holly, you should have not said that.”
“It was an accident, Mud Boy, and I meant it.”
She stubbornly folded her arms. “I’m wasting my time here. Goodbye, Fowl.”
And the everything went black.
“Look who’s here,”mumbled a familiar voice. Artemis’s eyes shot open. Not only the voice, but the place was mildly familiar as well. He had been here once. That time he had got the Complex. This was inside his own mind.
“Long time no see, boorish counterpart,”greeted Orion. “Did you just upset the princess?”
“What are you doing here?’demanded Artemis. “I am cured of the Atlantis Complex.”
“We’re your personality, Arty,”argued Orion. “Complex or not, we’ll always be here.”
Artemis’s eyes widened. “We? There’s more of you here?”
“Yup,”answered another guy. “What did ya think, dude?’
Artemis paled. “Did he just say the word–“
“Dude!”yelled the alter. “‘Course I did!”
“That’s Capricorn,”explained Orion. “There are others as well. Right now, Aqua is in control of your body.”
The Irish teen’s eyes averted to the mind screen. He didn’t yet know what Aqua was like, but he’d better not be worse than Orion.
Aqua was just in time to stop Holly leaving. “Come on,sweetheart, don’t be like that!”
Holly froze. Did he just say…?
“It’s not fair if I don’t get to talk to you ’cause of Artemis,”he continued.”He’s boring anyway.”
“You must be aware of that by now.”
“W-Who are you?”stammered the elf, taking a step backwards.
“Aqua,”said the boy. “I am another one of Arty’s personalities.”
A/N: I know, this Alter ego stuff is found in thousands of other fics, but I’m aiming to make this different. You see, this adventure is going to be harder because of it. Thank you for reading, dear reader, and puleeeezee leave me a comment!
