Chapter 20

Holly

The screen flickered to life. A room appeared, but you couldn’t see much of it. A corner was all you could see, though I guessed there was probably a doorway around it. I realized I was right when I heard footsteps coming from the other side, around the corner.

Then Sam came around the corner.

I gasped. “Sam!” I started struggling.

“Holly,” Artemis said softly. “Relax.”

“But Sam-”

“I know, Holly. She wouldn’t be showing us this if something wasn’t about to happen. But you need to stay calm. Don’t go to pieces for Opal’s entertainment. That’s what she wants. Just watch.”

I nodded, taking a few deep breaths to calm myself down. “Okay,” I said. I turned back to the screen.

Sam stepped around the doorway, then jumped back with a yelp. She fell backwards into Artemis’s son, who had come around behind her. He hit the ground.

She hurriedly backed up and helped him to his feet. Just as someone appeared in our line of sight.

He grabbed Sam’s arm and twisted, bringing the girl to her knees. She cried out in pain. I bit my lip, fighting as hard as I could to keep the tears stinging at my eyes from going over. I sighed with relief when Artemis kicked the guy in the ribs and he dropped Sam. He stumbled back out of sight, but not quick enough. I saw his hand reach for his belt before he disappeared.

My jaw dropped. He’s armed, I thought.

I wasn’t the only who saw the movement. Sam screamed. “Artemis!”

The boy had his back to her, fighting a different guy who I hadn’t seen before. “Sam, I’m kind of busy,” he said as he dodged a swing.

“But he’s got a gun,” Sam stuttered. “What do we do?”

“Wait,” came the reply.

I looked at Artemis. “Is he nuts?” I demanded.

“Just a second,” he said.

Okay, I decided. You’re both nuts.

Sam seemed to be thinking along the same lines. “What?” she demanded.

“I said, wait!” Artemis said. He dodged another strike, then duck low and punched the guy in the stomach. The guy hit the wall, holding his stomach and gasping for air.

“Now run! Now!” he screamed, and grabbed Sam’s hand, trying to tug her along. Thank Frond, she didn’t resist. They started running.

“He- they-” I stopped, unable to complete a sentence. I took a few deep breaths. “What just happened?”

Thankfully, Artemis didn’t seem to be as shocked as I was and had already put the pieces together. “Opal sent people after them,” he said, his voice carefully controlled. “That was an ambush.”

“Obviously not a very good one,” I said.

“I don’t think she put a lot of thought into it,” Artemis said. “I think the purpose was more to scare us. A demonstration. She’s trying to get a message through to us, to show us what she can do.”

“And to demonstrate that she won’t hesitate to do it,” I muttered numbly. A mutter was all i could manage. I was really tired now for some reason, and it took everything I had to stay awake.

Artemis noticed. “Are you okay? You don’t look so good.”

“Yeah,” I muttered. “I’m fine, I think….”

That was when I blacked out.

  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!
