“I have to go”
She couldn’t stand those words
“No! Its my job to stop her… you can’t! Commander Root promised”
He glanced down at Holly
“I can’t leave you like this Holly…”
She shoved him rather forcefully
“I’m more stable than you are… I’m going to get her, you’ll see!”
Commander Trouble Kelp snickered, pulling on Foaly’s newly desighned helmet and Neautrino.
“You call yourself stable Short? At this piont I don’t give a mudman’s ass about some mediocre promise that late Commander Root made… Haven needs they’re commander Holly… I can’t risk you”
He looked into her eyes. That expression of guilt and commanding… It was what made Trouble Kelp who he was. And Holly hated it.
“You aren’t the Trouble I did recon with”
She steadily stood up, taking a double take
“Your not the Trouble who Promised to watch after me for Commander Root”
She wearily gripped her Neatrino 2000 from the side of her moonbelt
“Your not Trouble… I don’t know you”
He snickered. The laugh sent tons of goose bumps shooting up her spine.
Holly stared blankly at him, lowering her guns aim.
“I don’t understand…”
“You really think you wanted me to see you run off with that mud man Fowl? Have you ever concidered that maybe sticking with your own species may have saved you all the tabloid articles? All those years of chasing down Opal, when all along, we could of had her already if you sticked with me?”
The way this was sounding to Holly, she didn’t want to even be in the same room as him for fronds sake! Let alone hunt down Opal Koboi with Trouble side-by-side
“You’ve gone off the edge, haven’t you Trubs?”
He glared at her, putting his gun away in his belt.
“That may be true, but Fowl has gone crazy way before I did”
He walked up close to her. Extremely close. He knelt down, kneeling exactly to her height, face to face.
Holly could hardly breath, and she couldn’t even manage to try to choke out words.
“Now tell me Short, Who kid napped you for his own greedy purposes?”
“HE MISSED HIS GODDAMN FATHER!” She screamed
Holly started to cry, tears blinding her vision
“Holly, Holly, Holly…”
He cupped his hands around her face
“I thought you would know by now that you don’t nearly kill someone for your own greed?”
He smirked, and Holly was completely outraged.
In one single swing, she was able to punch him in the stomach, sending a less than sane Trouble Kelp across the room, letting out a single howl in pain.
Holly scooped off his helmet and put it on, the suction cushions in the helmet immediately accommodating to cradle her skull.
She set her Neautrino 2000 to scorch, and she looked down at what she had did to Trouble.
He had lost his breath, now clenching at his stomach, gasping for air.
His heart rate had obviously gone up, from the heavy pumping of the lungs in his chest.
The only movement he could make was having his eyes wander around the room, until the gaze settled on Holly, and his eyes widened.
Holly glanced in horror, but tried to ignore the fact that the only way to get the crazed Trouble to come back to sanity was to hurt him.
No turning back now, She thought.
I’ve been waiting thirteen years to capture her.
As she approched the door and opened it, Trouble was able to gasp some air
“What… the hell… are you…. DOING?”
Holly smiled, setting her Dragonfly Wings to flight. She looked down at Trouble
“I’m the exception…”
