A RELIANT LOVE COMES OUT IN TWO DAYS! If you couldn't tell, I'm extremely excited. In honor of the book release, I've come up with some really awesome interviews with all of the main characters. I know! AMAZING!
The characters think this is an interview for school.
Let's start with my main chick, Nathalie.
Interviewer: Please state your name, age and a little something about you.
Nathalie: My name is Nathalie Carter. I'm eighteen. I'm a coffee and sugar addict but I think my habits will come in handy since I'm going to be a freshman at UMA in just a couple days.
I: That's very exciting. What made you chose UMA?
N: Well, I have been preparing my entire high school career for college. I knew I had to chose a school close to home, but didn't want something too close. So since UMA is only a few hours away, it was meant to me. My stellar grades and extracurriculars were too amazing to pass up on.
I: What sort of extras did you enjoy in school?
N: I didn't really enjoy them as much as need them. I was on yearbook and dance team. I also played field hockey and volunteered at most school functions. I didn't really like any of it, but it got me to where I am, so I'm thankful.
I: Did you enjoy high school?
N: I think I will when I look back on it. Right now, I'm so focused on moving forward and my new life that's about to start that I don't even want to look back on high school. *pause* Actually, yes, I did enjoy it. But only because of my best friend, Hannah.
I: Is Hannah also going to UMA?
N: Unfortunately, no. Hannah decided to skip college and just moved in with her boyfriend.
I: Speaking of boyfriends, did you have many in high school?
N: I had one serious boyfriend. But Drew is a douche, and to say I hate him would be an understatement. He's a cheater. Thus why we aren't together.
I: I'm sorry to hear that. What are you looking forward to most in your new adventure?
N: Everything. I want to experience it all. I hate heights, but if I was given the opportunity to jump from a plane, I'd do it just to say I did. I want to get drunk and have fun, and meet people I'd never normally meet. I want it all.
I: It sounds like you're going to have a very busy year.
N: I hope so. I may seem a bit crazy but I promise, I'm not. I've just had to live so long with my parents breathing down my back and now that I'm free, I want to learn and grow. I want to find the right people to surround myself with. I want that crazy love, too. But I'm not looking for it. I have hope that the right guy will find me. I have hope that things will finally go my way.
I: Well, I'm very excited to hear how you do.
N: I promise to check in.
Now onto Samuel.
Interviewer: Please state your name, age and something about yourself.
Samuel: Sam Torrington, twenty-two years old. I'm a senior here and waiting to get out.
I: Get out from where exactly?
S: Here. You know, why are we even doing this interview? I don't get it. I've never been interviewed once since starting at UMA four years ago. You guys are slacking.
I: Let's get back to you, Sam. What do you like to do in your free time?
S: *sighs* Well, I don't have much free time. I'm a business major and trying to finish as fast as possible. Plus I have to work in the summers to afford my house. Doesn't leave me with much time.
I: So you don't do anything for yourself?
S: Not really.
I: What was your high school experience compared to college?
S: Seriously? You're asking me about high school. I don't talk about high school anymore. But if I learned one thing it's that we all don't deserve to be happy. Some people are just meant to float along in life. That's me. So that's why I'm getting the hell out of here so I can just live in peace and quiet.
I: That's an interesting plan. What will you do when you leave?
S: I'll have my business degree so I can get a job. Maybe, I'll open a store in the mountains somewhere where not a lot of people go. My house will be hidden in the woods, nobody can find me, even if they wanted to. There will be just enough room for just me and it will be quiet all the time. Maybe I'll get a dog, but only if I get lonely. I don't need much.
I: That's actually really beautiful. Why do you want to be alone?
S: It's not what I want, it's what I deserve. I ruined a lot of things and if I'm alone in the woods, I can't ruin much more. Nobody even has to interact with me. I can't do much harm up there.
I: Anything you're looking forward to this year at UMA?
S: Finishing. My classes are pretty easy. All I have to do is show up to my classes and I'm good to go. It'll be bittersweet saying goodbye but I'm ready. I just have to remain distant from my peers and I'll be good.
I: Anyone you'll miss?
S: My roommate Karina and I have gotten close. Her boyfriend, Frank. Sometimes he's a douche, but I'll miss his humor. Sarah will be the toughest but she's the reason I have to go.
I: Who's Sarah?
S: Nobody. I'm done here. Thanks.
