Chapter 17


I woke up the next morning still in Artemis’s arms, never having moved. For a while I just laid there, letting him hold me as I recalled the previous nights events. Did he really say that? Or was I dreaming? Probably best to figure it out before I said something stupid.

I looked up at him to see he was looking down at me. How long had been sitting there like that, awake, watching me? I didn’t know, and I wasn’t sure I wanted to. It was kind of creepy.

I didn’t have much more time to think about it, because his voice broke into my thoughts. “Good morning,” he murmured.

“Morning,” I replied, stretching out. “Did you really…?” I trailed off, leaving the question hanging, but I didn’t need to finish it, because he knew what I wanted to ask.

“Did I really pop the question?” he finished. “Yes, yes I did. Did you really say yes?”

“Yes,” I said. “Though I thought it was at dream.”

“Are you taking it back, then?” he inquired.

I grinned wickedly. “In your dreams, Mud Boy.”

He hugged me close. “Maybe.”

I sighed and rested my head back on his chest. “What time is it?”

He glanced at the clock. “Eight thirty two.”

I sat up. “The kids! Did they get up?”

“Relax! It’s fine. They’re already gone. I checked earlier. They both have they’re own alarm clocks, remember?”

“Oh, yeah. Right. I knew that,” I said sheepishly.

He sat up. “Sure you did. Now, what do you say we to do something about breakfast?”

I groaned. “I don’t want to cook.”

He tenderly slid his fingers across my jawline, leaving my jaw tingling wherever his fingers touched it. “Then don’t,” he said simply. “We’ll go out. After all, we have to celebrate somehow, don’t we? And I need to buy you an engagement ring too, before I forget. Come on,” he said, taking my hand, “Go get dressed, then we’ll leave. Okay?”

“Okay, Arty,” I said, giving him a hug. He hugged me back. “But if we’re really going to go through with this, there’s more to be done than just buying an engagement ring. We’ve got to make plans for the wedding, we’ve got to tell the kids, and Butler and Juliet, Foaly, your parents…” I trailed off.

He tilted my head up, making me meet his eyes. “I know. But let’s just start with the engagement ring. One step at a time, Holly. And you left something big out.”

“What? I thought I said everybody important.”

“You did, mostly anyways. But you don’t really want Artemis calling you his stepmom, do you?” I looked away as realization hit me. “We have to tell him, Holly,” Artemis said softly.

“I know,” I sighed. “When?”

“When the time is right,” he answered. “Now, go. I’ll meet you in the living room when you’re done.”

“Alright,” I sighed. I pulled back and headed to the door.

“Holly?” I turned around. “I love you.”

“I love you too,” I said, smiling. Then I rounded the corner and headed out the door.

    It felt like déjà vu reading this, until I realized I had already read the last two chapters on FF.net, as well as the next couple. It’s still great, though!

    Comment on ch.2- BOOYAH! You used my idea! I started giggling like the freak I know I am when I saw that. Yay!

    By the way, did you know shaadia posted one of her stories on FF.net? I think it’s her Armageddon story. I followed and PMed her, so she knew who I was.

    I also figured out how to update FF from my phone, so I may be posting on there more frequently, because I got my laptop taken away again.

    I’m glad people are finally posting again! Maybe I should write a poem or something, so I can upload it from my phone.


    I’m sorry, really!
    And by the way……….WOW. That was ah-mazing!
    So sweet! It’s like, something that will actually happen! And I couldn’t help laughing when they started chanting “kiss! kiss!” heeheee…
    excellent writing as always. Awesome story, great grammar and all in all, AH-MAZING!!

  3. Thanks guys! Sorry it took me so long to update, I was working on Rebellion and didn’t realize until after I’d already finished it I had a few more chapters I could have posted… my mistake, sorry. I’ve got a few more written, I’ll post those soon. 🙂
