My fingers tapped away on the keyboard on my computer. I had been at this for hours trying to figure out the password to a certain enemy. Yesterday, I had a dream that my enemy was planning something. Even if it was only a dream, I ceased to believe that it was only just a dream. 

The Fowl family had many enemies and most was very dangerous. The dream might be considered only a nightmare to those who didn’t read between the lines. But to those who did, it was a warning. 

Butler knocked at the door, “Artemis?” 

“Come in,” I told him without turning my eyes away from the screen. 

My bodyguard stepped in holding my Grey Earl Tea. He placed it on the table. He hovered around me, worried. Butler finally spoke, “I think it’s time to put the computer away. It’s almost dawn.” 

“Not yet, Butler, I have to stop this before something terrible happens.” I was frustrated and annoyed. I had thought he would know me better than others. My trusted bodyguard was trying to keep me away from saving a life. 

Butler knew better than try to argue with me, the genius. After standing still for another few seconds, he left the room. 

After clicking my mouse for another hour, I groaned and placed my head on my hands. I ran my pale fingers through my raven colored hair. 

I decided I would ask Foaly for help, no matter how much I hated asking the centaur for anything. He would only laugh at me and tease me that even I, Artemis Fowl, could not figure this out. Then he would quickly access the code and mock me. 

I set myself in bed ignoring the electronic ringing from my laptop. I imagined myself in front of Holly and Foaly when I would inform them of my latest project. I could picture Holly being frustrated in me. I knew she would think I was up to no good. I couldn’t blame her. After all this years, you would think she would let go of the past. Truthfully, I haven’t either. 

The rain pounded heavily on my window demanded it was to be let in. The wind whistled loudly only to be followed by thunder and lightning. The night seemed angry at me at this moment. Angry at me because of the things I had done. 

I shut my eyes tightly and placed my hands on my ears. Nature was screaming at me, tormenting me, and never giving me a time to rest. 

I wanted to shout back. I wanted to yell at them to be quiet. Holler at them to give me time of peace. They never seemed to leave me alone. 

They wouldn’t understand the reason I had to do all this things in the past. I didn’t know that I had to be responsible for the Fowl fortune for no adult took over my father’s place. It had been my turn and willingly, I took it. 

I did everything possible. I became a criminal, a mastermind. I stole money, artifacts, and rare things that no infamous thieves dared to even try to steal. I fought against powerful men and I won. I kidnapped a fairy and escaped death. No one understood the reason I did this. Yes, I did indeed do this for the riches but I did this in order to survive. I followed the rule of Social Darwinism: Only the fittest could survive. So I did everything possible in my power to keep my family name feared by others. 

Then, for a moment, everything seemed calm. I let out a sigh of relief and fell into sleep.

  1. Good! Very nice plotline, I like how it’s in first person. But “Grey Earl Tea” should be Earl Grey tea.

  2. Lol, thanks, had no idea

  3. I did not read all of the second chapter, but shouldn’t this not be in one shots if it’s longer than a chapter??

    That first chapter is kind of interesting! Would that be his descent into insanity? There are a couple spelling errors (“Yes, I did indeed do his for the riches but I did this in order to survive.” “His” should be “this”) but those are easily fixable.

    I shall now read all of the second chapter! 🙂
