AcrossTimeInASmallWorld - CH6While Butler and Juliet were talking, Artemis led Leioll into the house. "I apologize for them. Juliet can get a little distracted sometimes." Artemis said with a slight sigh. "Oh it's no problem. I'm just not used to them yet" Ley said with a small smile. "Well, follow me" he said walking through the foyer towards the grand staircase. Halfway up the stairs, Butler and Juliet walked back into the house. "There you are Butler. We will be in the study. I think its time." Artemis said rather mysteriously.
"Do you need anything from me, Master Artemis?"
"No, but thank you."
"You Mistress Leioll?"
Ley looked down as her stomach growled. "No " she answered hesitantly. "What's for dinner tonight?" Artemis asked hearing Ley's stomach. "We are having roast duck at 6:30." Butler said picking up on the subtle hint. "Thank you." Ley whispered. Artemis nodded in response and walked towards the floor to ceiling mahogany doors at the end of the hall.
While in the study, Artemis aske
AcrossTimeInASmallWorld - CH5Ley woke up slowly. She really hadn't gotten much sleep in the past week. The school had given her more work than usual and she couldn't ever really sleep anyways, so it hadn't helped her seeming insomnia. She stretched and yawned. "Hm?" she asked Artemis. "We have made it to my estate." he answered again. "Oh," she answered sleepily. "Hey Arty?"-the name stuck more than she realized. "You sure that me being here is alright with your parents?" She saw Artemis nod while getting out of the car and followed him out. "Uh, kay then " Ley stretched and looked up at the CASTLE that was staring her in the face. Artemis watched a gawking Leioll not move. "Leioll?" He asked a little confused. After a few more minutes, Ley shook her head and gawked, now, at Artemis. "What?" he asked genuinely confused. "You never told me that you live in a CASTLE!!!" Ley exclaimed. Artemis chuckled in understanding, "I don't live in a castle, I live in an estate. Also, you never bothered to ask
AcrossTimeInASmallWorld - CH4Butler was grinning to himself in the front seat watching the two middle school kids. He watched as Ley laughed pulling out a book from her bag she brought. "Here, catch!" she called to Artemis whilst tossing the book at him. "Wha-?" Was all Artemis said before the book hit him in the face. "Jeez Can't you do anything right, Artemis?" Ley asked picking the book back up and putting it in his lap. "Your insults aren't appreciated Leioll." He stated picking up the old leather bound book.
Flipping through it he asked her, "What is this?" "Its one of my old children's books Like I was telling you about before. See, look." Ley answered taking the book back. "Now watch." She pointed to the bottom left of the first page and started to read. "Once upon a time, back in the oldest of days, man was just learning how to live. Another race wanted to help the new people. These groups of people were called 'fairies'." While she was reading the picture letters formed magically on
AcrossTimeInASmallWorld - Ch3Ley had packed her things and started to run back to the courtyard. Getting closer to where she had run from, she saw Artemis standing in front of a very large person. The person behind Artemis wasn't like fat large, but muscular large. Upon getting even closer Leioll stopped running and heard the two talking seriously. "You sure this is a good idea?" the big guy asked Artemis. "Yes, I am positive. Have I ever been wrong before?" Artemis answered the big guy's question with a question. "She will help us a lot, Probably even more than I know." He paused as Ley moved under the trees shadow. "Who is that?" Ley asked pointing, rather rudely at the big guy. "This is Butler. He is going to escort us to my house." Artemis said boredly pushing Leioll's arm down. Before the girl could say anything else Artemis was walking to the car that wasn't parked very far away. "Miss Evans, please follow Master Artemis." Butler said. To Ley's surprise, Butler's voice was deep but caring. "O-oh " Ley s
AcrossTimeInASmallWorld Ch2 Artemis sighed after stopping in the courtyard of the school. "What was that for?" Ley yelled at Artemis again. "I need to ask you again. What do you want to do?" Artemis asked again' referring to the note that was still in Leioll's hand. Ley looked at the note again, and re-read it. "First Why did u ask me if I believe in fairies?" She pointed to the picture letters at the top of the note he had put on her desk waiting for an answer. Artemis just about looked taken aback and started to say something but stopped before he could. "What?" Ley asked tilting her head confused at his reaction. "How do you know how to read that? Its in the oldest language made." Artemis asked strictly. "Um It's in some my old nursery rhyme books. Also I've seen you write out a key of some sort before as well " Ley said it like it wasn't any big deal. "What? Ugh Your observant." Artemis complained before continuing. "Anyways, do you know
