Chapter 10

Holly

“Are you serious?” I asked. “You really believe that?”

“Yes,” he said. “I’m positive. Even you couldn’t think of anyone who might be behind this. It is the only logical explanation.”

“I don’t want to be rude, I know logic is your thing, but are you really sure that you’re not just jumping to conclusions?”

“You want proof?” he asked. I nodded. “Here’s proof.” He pushed a few more buttons on the computer and turned it to face me.

“What am I looking at?” I asked.

“You’re looking at my son’s documents. One in particular, actually.” He clicked one near the bottom of the screen.

I took the mouse and scrolled down, skimming the text as I went.My eyes widened. “It’s all about fairies.”

He nodded stiffly and rubbed his face. “Well, there’s your answer.”

I was startled. “My answer to what?” I asked.

“Your problem. It wasn’t your fault, it was mine. I should have been more careful. You guys would have been perfectly fine if I hadn’t let him get ahold of the book.”

“It’s not your fault,” I said.

“Captain,” he said. I looked at him. “You’re a terrible lier.”

“Okay, so maybe it is your fault, but that doesn’t mean I blame you. Everyone makes mistakes, Artemis, even geniuses.”

“I know,” he sighed. “The problem is not that I make mistakes, it’s that when I do, they’re always big mistakes.” He looked at me. “I hate knowing that I hurt you, Holly. And I’m not just talking about this incident.”

“Artemis, it was years ago, please just let it go.”

“Which time are you talking about?”

“Um-“

He sighed. “That’s my point.”

“Artemis-“

“Holly, just forget it, okay?”

“But-“

He stopped me by putting his hand over my mouth. “Drop it.” I nodded, and he pulled his hand away.

“So, what now?” I asked. “Where do we go from here? We’ve figured out who’s got her, now we just have to figure out why. Maybe we could get some help from-“

“No,” he interrupted. “We should at least get some idea of what he wants before we contact anyone else about this. For now, lets just keep it between us. Okay?”

“Okay,” I sighed. “So what do we do now?”

“Now,” he said, “We wait.”

  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!
