Okay, sorry for the long wait! This is the last part for History Repeats 2, so don’t be looking for an update on it, but if it’s liked a lot I might keep it going and write a History Repeats 3. Anyways, there’s a few unexpected surprises in this part, and a small adult reference at the end but its not descriptive. Please R&R!

 

Chapter 15

Sam

I woke up in a bed I didn’t recognize. I looked around. Artemis was sleeping soundly beside me, but Butler was nowhere to be seen. I sighed and laid back down. He wouldn’t have left us alone if it wasn’t safe. We must have gotten safely away from Koboi Enterprises, then.

The thought made me sit bolt upright in the bed. We had gotten safely away, but where was Holly and Artemis?

“Artemis,” I whispered, shaking the boy awake. “Artemis, get up.”

“What?” He groaned and sat up. “Sam. What’s wrong?”

“Holly and your father aren’t here,” I said.

“Relax,” he said. “I’m sure they’re fine. They’re probably just running a little behind us.”

I pointed to the clock on the nightstand beside us, which read 5:27 a.m. “When we made it out, it was almost two,” I said. “They should be here by now.”

“Okay, okay. Don’t panic.” He looked around. “Where’s Butler?”

I shook my head. “I don’t know. He wasn’t here when I woke up.”

“Well then, let’s call him,” he said, and pulled out the cell phone that I had given him the night before. He opened it and dialed the number in, then put the phone to his ear. He waited for a few seconds as it started to ring.

We both about jumped out of our skins when a loud ringing noise came from the other side of the room. We looked at each other, and Artemis walked over to investigate.

He sighed and held up a cell phone and a piece of paper. It was Butler’s cell phone, I realized, and the paper had Butler’s handwriting on it. He ended the call, and immediately the ringing noise stopped.

Artemis walked over and handed the paper to me. It was a note from Butler. He sat down on the bed beside me and read it out loud from over my shoulder.

“Samantha and Artemis Jr,

I’ve gone out to look for Holly and Artemis Senior. I’ll be back soon. Stay put until I get back, and try not to get into any trouble,

Butler.”

I bit my lip. Artemis squeezed my shoulder reassuringly. “You okay?” he asked.

I nodded. “Just worried. What if they didn’t make it out and that’s why they’re not here?”

“Well, that’s where Dad’s genius brain will come in handy,” Artemis said. “I hear he comes up with some seriously good plans sometimes.”

“More like seriously dangerous,” I muttered.

“Do you want something to distract you?” he asked.

“Hmm… Sure,” I muttered. Hopefully that will keep me from worrying about Holly, I thought.

Artemis thought about it for a minute. “You want to hear a story?”

“Just something,” I said. “I don’t care what.”

“Oh, I’ve got one you’ll like,” he said, a grin suddenly appearing on his face. “Want to know how Holly and Dad met? I’m not supposed to tell you, but hey..” He trailed off, and I sat up straighter and nodded. Now I was interested.    “Okay,” he said. “Don’t laugh, cause its kind of ironic, but…”

He opened his mouth to tell me, but the door opened and Butler came in. As soon as I saw who it was, I tilted my head, trying to see around him to look for Holly.

Butler saw me and shook his head. “They’re not with me,” he said. “I couldn’t find them.”

My face fell. “Oh.”

Artemis squeezed my shoulder. I’ll tell you later, he mouthed. I nodded. “Where do you think they could be?” he asked him.

“Honestly, Artemis, I went back the way we came and completely circled around Koboi Enterprises. I don’t think they made it out, otherwise I would have found them.”

I bit my lip and looked down at the bed, tears stinging at my eyes. They hadn’t  made it out. But why? Had Chris betrayed us? Or, just by some stroke of bad luck, Opal managed to catch them. Or maybe she had known all along.

There was so many possibilities, but sitting here thinking about them wasn’t going to get them back.

I jumped up off the bed. “Then what are we waiting for? We can’t leave them there! That pixie is a devil! We have to go get them!”

“Sam,” Artemis said. “You said the same thing when it was just Holly. We cannot just rush in there.”

“I’m surprised you don’t agree,” I snapped. “After all, your father’s in there too. Don’t you care?”

“Of course I care!  I’m just not stupid!”

Butler stepped in. “Hey, you two. No bickering.”

I shut my mouth, but Artemis snapped at him. “Stay out of this.”

“You two are just like them,” Butler said, ignoring the comment. “One of you will say the wrong thing, and the other will snap on them.” He looked at me. “I’m not surprised  at all by you. Holly raised you, and usually she was  the impulsive and snappy one.”

Of course, I had a snappy remark on the tip of my tongue for that, but I held it back. I closed my eyes and took a few deep breaths. Meanwhile, Butler was still talking.

“Neither of you are stupid, either, Artemis. Samantha is just upset. When Holly gets upset she has attendency to not think rationally either.” He caught me looking at him and said gently, “Don’t be offended, but its true. Barging in there is not rational thinking. It doesn’t mean you’re stupid,” he threw a glance at Artemis as he said this, “It just means that you think with your heart, not  your head. You have attendency to act on impulse, without thinking about it before hand. That can be good, but it can also be bad. In this case it would be  bad. Very bad.”

I nodded. “But we still have to get them back.”

“And we will,” he promised. “But not right now. Holly is with the person with person with the best chance of getting them out of there. The best thing to do right now would be this: give them a few days to get out of there on their own. In that time, we can work on a plan, in case they don’t show. Then we can try to break them out.”

“A few days,” I echoed numbly. He nodded.

“A few days. Then we’ll go after them.”

“Promise?”

“I promise,”  Butler said.

  1. O M G….that was AWESOME! yes! so A/H rules once again! im soo glad his mother isnt MINERVA. not.a.chance. but i loved it!! its like, totally amazing. you should REALLY write the 3rd part! it ended with a cliffhanger! who is opal’s kid’s dad? huh? huuh? why cant arty junior find out who his mother is, i mean, wouldn’t that be good news?! oh well. keep it up! please write more fics, you are totally awesome! 100% better than me! mph. not fair!

  2. Okay! I wasn’t sure if anyone would want a third part, but I set it up so that if you did I had some stuff to go on for starters. I know that the stories are kinda straying from the title, but after a while they take on a life of their own. I tried to keep some of it the same. I’ll write third one if you like, but if I’m going to do it I’d better get started. 😉
    Oh, and I would NEVER make his mother Minerva. Maybe his step mother, seeing as how she’s already dead and can’t get in the way, but maybe not. Hmm….
    One last question. I was thinking about starting another story, so that I have something to work on outside of History Repeats stuff, but my idea features characters that aren’t from AF, but I made them up, their not from another series. Would that be considered a crossover?

  3. nope. i didn’t categorize the cross species battle under crossovers, now did i? that has a lot of new people. i think you should REALLY make a third part. no, pleze dont add minerva! just make the stepmom somebody better. why would arty want HER?! yuck. sorry minerva lovers, but its just not right. oh, and you should totally make a new story!

  4. Okay, good point. I wasn’t sure but I didn’t want to categorize it wrong. Thanks. I won’t make the stepmom Minerva then. I don’t care she sucks anyways. I don’t know why he would want her. I’ll see what I can do about a third History Repeats. I’ll go ahead and make a draft of that other story to, see if I like it before I post it. I’ll put either the first part of one or the other up soon.

  5. Okay! Thanks for everything, continuing this, not including minerva and for saying thanks!

    Good luck on the next part, I’m looking forward to it!
