Here’s to Angela on her latest Evernight Teen book. Here’s her character having a bit of a chat with that hunk of a Vampire, Edward Cullen. Shiver me timbers. A vampire on my blog!
Anyway, C. Lee asked me here to have a chat with a character from one of the books I recently read from the banned books list. Hey, if The Colony wants to censor it, I HAVE to read it. I chose Twilight. Some of you know of this novel, maybe? Vampires that sparkle, werewolves that seem to always be shirtless, and a girl who is sought after by both a were and a vamp. I would not want to be her, all confused behind two guys. Give me Thane any day.
Wait… there is Rig…
*Macie stands up, offers her hand, but Edward quickly settles into the chair opposite her.*
Macie: Uh, okay.
*She drops her hand and sits back down.*
Macie: Nice to meet you, Edward.
*Edward sniffs the air a couple of times then dissolves into an even more pale state.*
Macie: I hope the lights are okay. C. Lee said she adjusted them so they are dim enough for you.
Edward: The lights are fine.
Macie: Oh, good. So let’s get started. Now, I have to know, do you and Bella really –
Edward: What are you?
*Macie’s mouth is left wide open by the sudden interruption but then she closes it.*
Macie: I’m a character in Angela’s novel, Beacon. It’s a YA urban fantasy dystopian. I think it’s pretty cool but I’m probably a little biased.
*Edward leans forward, eyes narrowed.*
Edward: C. Lee told me that. But she didn’t tell me what you are.
Macie: I’m just a girl nobody likes. That’s all.
*Macie’s eyes widen.*
Edward: No. You’re not. And that’s a big problem.
*Macie visibly shivers*
Edward: Because I was also told that you liked Jasper so I brought him along to surprise you. One whiff of you and he will go berserk. Honestly…
*Edwards casts his eyes downward.*
Edward: I’m having a hard time holding my bloodlust back.
*Edward jumps to his feet, breathing hard.*
Edward: Seriously, what are you? You smell so… delicious.
*C. Lee enters the chat*
