Chapter 9

Holly

After about a half an hour I got tired of pacing, so went and sat down on the recliner in the corner of the room. I didn’t want to sit beside Artemis on the bed for fear of disturbing him. He was still meditating.

After about five more minutes of meditating, his eyes suddenly shot open. He jumped up and snatched his laptop. His fingers flew across the keyboard so fast it made my head spin just watching, and he muttered something under his breath.

I jumped out of the chair and ran over to him.

“What is it?” I asked. “Did you find something?”

“Maybe,” he said. “I-I hope not, but maybe.”

I struggled to keep my jaw from dropping in shock. He was stuttering. Artemis Fowl didn’t stutter. Something must be wrong. Really wrong.

“Artemis, what’s wrong?” He just shook his head. “Artemis,” I said, a little sharper than was probably necessary, “I’m serious, you’re scaring me. Tell me what’s wrong.”

He looked up at me. His hands were shaking, and he looked even more pale than normal. “The other morning I had a copy of the fairy book out on the computer desk in my study,” he said. I opened my mouth to ask I’m how in the world that was relevant, but he held up a hand to stop me. “I left it there when I went to the store. When I came back, my son was in my room. He said he was looking for a new book to read.”

I caught on immediately. “You don’t think-” My voice was trembling. I stopped and took a deep breath. “You don’t think he could have done it, do you?”

He looked at me, dead serious, and said, “That’s exactly what I think.”

  1. Yay! Next part has come! This is awesome!
    I didn’t spot any mistakes. Hmm…right. Gimme a moment to log in and I’ll add to my favs.
    Five stars. Can’t wait to see the rest!

    Ps: I know you’re getting mad at me for not updating. Sorry. Just because of exams.

  2. Thanks! And I don’t mind. I know how controlling school can be sometimes, especially right now with the OAAs coming up. I’ll post the next part soon.

    I really like your stories and I love your writing style. There was a bit of OOC-ness on Artemis'(II) part, but that was pretty much it.

    I also saw your comment asking me to beta these. Honestly, I don’t think you need it. You make almost no spelling errors, your grammar is good and I see no plot holes, though I’m terrible at spotting then in the first place. There were only minor errors, like putting mud boy instead of Mud Boy. You’re very careful and clean in your work and you should be proud of it, but if you still think you need a beta, you can always check the list (which I did apply for, I just haven’t gotten a response yet), or shoot me an email (silvergoddess666@gmail.com)

    Please post part 4 soon!

  4. Okay! I have it ready, I just have to post it! I just got my Internet fixed! I did warn you about the fact there might be some OOCness on Artemis the seconds part, partly cause he’s older and partly because I’m not good at that kind of stuff. Thanks for the compliment though. I’ll be sure to fix that and capitalize “mud boy” from now on. I will put the next part as soon as I have time!
