Need you now

A/N: So, I was listening to "Need you now" by Lady Antebellum, and it occurred to me that it would make a good songfic. This is my first one, and it is describing how Artemis and Holly admitted that they loved each other. Remember, flames are what keep me warm at night. Update: It appears as though the song is not in Public Domain, so I had to take out the lyrics :( If you want to hear the song, just go on youtube and search "Need You Now" by Lady Antebellum.

Artemis was in his room, remembering all the fun times he had with Holly. He tried to tell her how he felt, and she had turned him down, saying "it wouldn't work. I'm sorry" and left, refusing to talk to him. She told him not to call her, because they couldn't talk anymore.

He pulled out his communicator ring. He hadn't worn it since that day, but he still carried it around with him, in case she called. Turning it on, he called the only number programmed onto the ring.


"Holly, I need to talk to you," he said into the tiny microphone.

"What? Fine. I'll be there in an hour." She hung up.

He fell asleep waiting for her. He'd waited until night to call her, so he didn't wake her up. She found him like that, sitting in his chair asleep.

"Artemis?" she called, shaking him slightly.

"ZZzzz… wah? Oh Holly, it's you!" Artemis exclaimed. "It appears as though I fell asleep."

"It doesn't take a genius to figure that out, Mud Boy," she laughed.

"Look, I called you to tell you something. I know that you don't want to talk, but can you at least give me a chance?" he asked. She was suddenly serious.

"You have three minutes, Fowl, before I knock you out and leave," she threatened. Gods, she missed being around him.

"I know that elves and humans are too different to have a er…." He trailed off, unsure of himself.

"A sexual relationship?" she supplied.

"Yes, that's an excellent way to put it." He sighed, relieved that she hadn't left at that. "However, that only affects intercourse. There are other things that can be done, instead of that."

"No, Fowl, don't even think about it," she told him turning to fly out of the window.

"Holly, please!" He grabbed her hand, and pulled her back. Holly could have easily pulled away, but she found that she didn't want to. "Just give it a chance. Just give us a chance. Please," he begged, which is something Fowls just don't do.

"Fine. We'll give it a chance. Just one," she agreed. "But we are going to take it slow, okay?" Then she froze as he kissed her. It was filled with all the love, passion and feelings Artemis had repressed for so long. It felt like it lasted an eternity. Slowly, she accepted the kiss, wrapping her arms around his neck, his around her waist.

A/N: So, how was it? I feel that the song perfectly describes the scenario that Holly and Artemis are in in this situation. This is for the people who wanted me to explain how Holly and Artemis got together in my first fic, Artemis Fowl Fanfiction. I also want to change the name for it, but I can't decide what it should be. If you review, I'd greatly appreciate a title for it. By the way, before I forget, Chapter 8 should be coming out soon. I do apologize for the super long delay, but school and writers block are making it SUPREMELY difficult to get that chapter out.
