A/N:I know it’s no longer Christmas, and it is Christmas themed, but by the end it won’t be. It also won’t be a boring, cliche’ one, where they fall in love and live happily ever after. Enjoy!!!!
Fairies don’t usually celebrate Christmas. They used to. Then Mud Men started the fireworks, the parties, the present-giving, and, although the didn’t know it, the end of a fairy holiday.
So when Artemis invited me to a Christmas party, it took a lot of persuading.
“I could ask you the same.”
“No, you couldn’t.”
“I could. If you phrase it like this;why would Artemis Fowl, the most unsociable person I know, want to hold a party?”
“I don’t. Mother does.”
I rolled my eyes.
“Please? As my friend, Holly Short, I am asking you to come.”
“I don’t see why not.” The words were out of my mouth without my registering the fact. But I continued with a list of questions, not regretting my choice of words.
“Do I have to bring a present?”
“That would just be an added bonus. But not compulsory, no.”
“Will Minerva come?”
That put me off a bit. I didn’t want her ruining my first Christmas.
“But you’ll come anyway.” It was a command, not a request.
“But I don’t-”
“See you tomorrow!” And he hung up, leaving me with the looming prospect of a party.
