AF: The Aftermath Chapter 3Chapter 3
Holly got out of bed in the morning and sighed. Another day of work. Begrudgingly, she started her morning routine. She took a shower, got dressed, had a bowl of cereal and a cup of coffee for breakfast, then headed off to work just like she did every morning. She actually missed the days when the world was in crisis, at least then it was exciting and she got to be with her friends. The only friends she ever saw anymore was Foaly, and that was on the tiny monitor of her wrist communicator. And, somehow sensing that she was thinking about it, the watch-like device started beeping, letting her know that somebody was trying to contact her. Picking it up, she glanced at the contact name. Foaly. She pressed the green button and his smiling face took up the screen. He said, "Hey, Holly. How are you doing this morning?"
"The same as every morning. Are you calling about something important or just making conversation?"
"Wow. You sure woke up on the wrong side of the bed th
AF: The Aftermath Chapter 2Chapter 2
Artemis poked his head through the door of the dojo where the family's most trusted bodyguard went to train and work out. He quietly stepped inside and sat on the bench near the door while the bodyguard threw punches and kicks at the practice dumbie. The man was tall, like a mountain, and his muscles were like pythons. This was one man you definitely wouldn't want to piss off. Butler glanced over at the small, pale boy on the bench and stopped pumbleling the dumbie. He made his way over to the bench and sat down next to him. The boy was obviously uneasy. He was still a little frighten by the bodyguard. He looked up at the man and Butler couldn't help but think about how much this boy looked like Artemis. But he wasn't Artemis; just a copy. This Artemis Fowl was nothing more than a flawed clone of the original Artemis Fowl. Artemis spoke, his voice quiet and barely audible, " Um.. Hello."
Butler responded quietly and gently, taking care not to frighten the child, "Hello, Artem
AF: The Aftermath Chapter 1Prologue:
Six months ago the world was thrown out of balance. Humans lost all their technology and the fairy civilization was severely impacted when Opal Koboi ordered her younger self killed and escaped from prison. She had intended on destroying all human life on Earth, and almost succeeded, But Holly, Artemis, Butler, Mulch, and Foaly all aided some way in stopping her. Artemis gave his life for that cause, but just because he died doesn't mean he was gone. Foaly created a clone of Artemis, a vessel for his soul. So, he returned to life, but at the price of his memories. For a while, humans continued to live that way, but humans nature insisted on humans doing what they do, so in a few short weeks all the factories were repaired and the world was back to being the way it had been before the disaster. The Fairy People had also begun to repair the devastation that had been wrought on their society and things soon became normal again. Its winter now, and children sit inside playing min
Chapter 3 : TrustChapter 3: Trust
Vlad stepped out into the hall after math. He watched Miranda stroll down the corridor with her friends, giggling and laughing like girls tend to do. She was just so... The way her chocolate brown hair fell so beautifully over her shoulders, and her eyes. Oh, man, her eyes! Like two of the brightest stars in the night sky. She was perfect, but this perfection was already known to Vlad, in a different girl. He swore, Miranda and Meredith could have been twins. A voice startled him out of his thoughts. It was Henry's voice, and for a moment he believe that it was Henry, but no. It was Harvey, and he looked a little worried, "Hey, man. You ok? You were just standing there looking a little dazed. Is everything alright?"
"Erm.. yeah. I'm fine. Where you headed to?"
"I got Algebra... how bout you?"
"Bummer. Mrs. Dill is a total bitch. I feel for ya."
"Thanks, man. Um, Hey. You wanna... maybe come by my place after school? We could hang out."
"Sure. I gotta do some

Vlad gathered his things into his backpack. Like him, it had survived the last four years with minimal lasting damage.
"Ok. I've got pencils, notebooks, folders... It looks like i've got everything i need to start school," Vlad zipped up the bag and sighed, "Back to High School..."
He headed down the stairs, out the front door, and to the car where Otis was waiting. The drive to school was quiet. Neither of them spoke to each other. Neither of them wanted to. Otis put the car in park in the faculty parking lot. Vlad went to open the the passenger door, but Otis put his hand on his shoulder. Vlad looked at him, his expression was serious but worried, "Are you sure about this, Vladimir?"
He thought a moment, looking out the window at the building looming just a few yards away then cast his gaze down at his hands, "Yes."
They both got out of the beat up old car and walked up the front steps of the school building. Otis went inside and left Vlad to wait on t
