Artemis had always thought a romantic relationship with Holly would be impossible. Then, six months ago, he and Holly started dating. There could not be any sexual interactions even though Human and Elf anatomies were very similar. The closest they could get was kissing. Now, Foaly told him there was a way. "It'll be dangerous," he warned. "And painful." Foaly was proposing that, with the help of a new invention of his, that it could be possible for Artemis to become a fairy. An elf to be specific. "It would take time for the magic to start to appear, so don't think you're just going to wake up and be able to do whatever kind of magic you want."

"Obviously," Artemis replied. "You should be able to do minor healings after a couple days, and by the end of the month, your magic should be fully developed. I think," explained Foaly.

"Are you sure about this Artemis?" Holly asked. "You know you will only be able to visit Butler and Juliet after the transformation is done, right?" That was the crux of the problem. How would his mother cope with him just disappearing off the face of the planet? I couldn't tell her, and even if I could she would never let me do this, Artemis realized. But that was a problem for later, if there was one for him.

"You know I would do anything to be with you Holly."

"As you well know," Foaly said, tactfully ignoring what Artemis said. It would not be a good idea to antagonize Holly and Artemis right now, especially since Holly had the new Nuetrino 4000 on her hip now. "This machine, the "transformer" as I call it, cannot ensure that your body will accept the magic, which would kill you."

"Oh, but there is one factor you had not thought to consider," Artemis said. He was thinking back to Hybras and the magic he had stolen.

"And what might that be?" asked Foaly.

"The time stream where I stole some magic. So I am one hundred percent certain that I will survive the transformation to a magical creature a second time."

"Artemis," Holly said, pleadingly. "You know I love you, and you me, but you don't have to do this." She looked as if she were about to cry.

Walking over to her and sitting down next to her, Artemis pulled the petite elf into his lap. " I know I don't have to, Holly, but I am going to do this whether you like it or not," Artemis said.

"I'll just leave you two to talk about it," Foaly said nervously, then walked out.

"I am doing this for you, Holly," Artemis told her. "If I don't, we will be shunned for the rest of our lives. At least this way I'll get to live as long as you, and the Council won't be able to do a thing about it. Besides, you've got nothing to worry about. I've had magic before and it didn't kill me. Even if I hadn't had magic before nothing could keep me from you. Not magic, not a thousand Opal Kobies, or a million Council members." Holly was stunned. Artemis had never been so open before, not even after they started dating six months ago.

"I know Artemis," Holly said, turning to look at him. "It's just… I can't imagine life without you!"

"Holly," Artemis said, turning her in his lap to face him "You won't ever have to. I love you and I would do anything to save you from the cruelty of the actions of the other that would stem from marrying me as I am."

Not even giving her time to say anything, he kissed her, twineing his fingers into her short auburn hair. Surprized at first, Holly wrapped her arms around him, deepening the kiss.

They stayed like this for several seconds, but then Artemis noticed Foaly, Trouble and Juliet, who had come with Artemis instead of Butler, who was recovering from a bad case of the flu, to guard him. Artemis broke off the kiss long enough to find the button to polarize the windows in Holly's office, which she got when she was promoted to Major. Then they resumed kissing, pausing only to catch their breath.

Artemis has grown so much since I met him that day twelve years ago, Holly thought. We've fought Opal Kobi multiple times, Turnball Root, saved the People and rescued the eighth family of the fairies. Then Artemis leaned in for another kiss and Holly forgot what she had been thinking about.
