Hello everyone 🙂 I wanted to thank each and every person who has bought, borrowed HD. This morning Hope’s Decree ranked #14 on Kindle’s Best Seller list. Amazing! I’m beyond words…may be because I’m so tired I can’t think, but really, I’m speechless. For those who know me, me speechless is a miracle. Seriously. So, later when I’ve slept I’ll be giving signed copies of Hope’s Decree away. You guys and gals are the most amazing book loving people EVER…now finish reading below:D Today marks the end of our fun character interviews. I had a blast! I want to thank each author for agreeing to join me and for giving us a little more insight from some of our favorite characters. If you missed who came over, here’s a list: J.A. Campbell (Sabaska’s Tale), Laura Thalassa (The Unearthly), Katy O’Dowd (The Lady Astronomer), Joanne Wadsworth (Warrior), Sean Hayden (My Soul to Keep) and Jen Wylie (Broken Prince). You ladies and gentleman, rock! Now, on to Morpheus, Blain and Trinity from my book, Hope’s Decree….
“Morpheus, Trinity and Blain, thanks for answering a few questions. *Everyone nods and smiles back* My first question goes to Morpheus. Morpheus, I’ve had ladies who want to know what song you were singing in the car with Trinity?” *Blain laughs and Morpheus lean forward and glares back at him.*
“What’s so funny?” Morpheus crosses his arms over chest.
“Dude, you’ve been going on and on about all the questions you’d be asked.” Blain pauses, attempting to control his fits of laughter. “And the top question is what song you were singing?”
Morpheus directs his attention back to me. “Sorry. Snookums is jealous of all the action I get.” *Morpheus clears his throat* “I believe the song was Blake Shelton’s, Honey Bee. *Morpheus turns to look at Trinity.*
“Um, don’t look at me. I told you I don’t like sappy country music crap.”
“Okay, let’s move on. Morpheus, what was is like when you were evil and do you miss it?”
“Great question, Angela.” Morpheus winks. “When Psycho drove the orb into my chest, I didn’t feel anything. It felt like a weight had lifted and all the things I’d thought were wrong, weren’t. To say I don’t miss it would be a lie.” Morpheus grins wickedly. “Cause ya know, sometimes being a little bad is oh so good.”
“Doesn’t surprise me,” Blain spit out in a rush. Trinity reaches over and laces her fingers through his.
“Be nice,” she whispered in his ear. “Aww, is sweet-cheeks in a bad mood?” Suddenly a flash of white light zaps Morpheus in the chest and knocks him out of his chair and onto the hard ground.
“Hey, what’s with you?” Morpheus stands while dusting off his shirt and then moves back into his seat. “Maybe that’ll teach you to be nice. This,” Trinity waves her hand toward me, “is a professional interview. People aren’t going to want to read about us if you continue being an ass.” Trinity glares while Morpheus rolls his eyes.
“I’m trying to keep the interview fun and interesting, but I can only do so much. You two could help me out.” Morpheus laughs and both Blain and Trinity sends a small current of energy into his chest, again. “When this is over…it’s on.” Morpheus sulks in his chair.
“Let’s move to you, Blain. When you first met Trinity, what did you think of her?”
“Oh, this should be good,” Trinity says, and turns to look at Blain. “Well,” Blain starts and looks at Trinity. “I thought she was the most beautiful woman I’d ever laid my eyes on….even with popcorn falling from her hair and soda soaked through her shirt.” He winks, and Trinity’s cheeks blush.
“Gag. You two need a break from each other,” Morpheus grumbles.
“You’re just jealous because Crystal hasn’t returned any of your phone calls.” Trinity turns and sticks her tongue out at Morpheus.
“Next question’s for Blain,” I say, interrupting their banter. “The fight between you and Melia was pretty intense. I didn’t think you were going to make it out alive, but you did. Can you talk about what happened? What thoughts ran through your mind, that sort of thing?” Blain slides his hand out from Trinity’s, but only to turn and gaze adoringly back at her. Lifting his hand, he brushes away a few fallen tears down her reddened cheek. Clearing his throat, Blain turns back toward me, his expression grim.
“It was the worst day of my entire existence. When I fought Melia, my only goal was to destroy her for what she’d done to Trinity. I didn’t feel anything but hate and vengeance. I wanted to end her.” Golden light begins to outline his frame, and his eyes close. Breathing in deeply, he continues. “All that registered was Trinity’s fallen figure, lifelessly resting on the snow covered ground. I thought—” *Silence*
“It’s okay, we can stop there,” I allowed after a minute.
“Dude, you are such a wuss,” Morpheus says, breaking the uncomfortable silence. “If Trinity dies, the story is over. No more me, the most wanted bachelor on earth, and yeah, no more you either. Get over yourself.”
Trinity grabs Blain’s hand before he can reach across for Morpheus. “Come on, try it. Looks like you’re still a little slow, brother.” Trinity turns toward Morpheus and frowns.
“Continue egging him on, and next time I won’t stop him from kicking your arrogant ass.”
“Next time I’ll be sure to interview you all separately.” Turning toward Trinity I ask, “Trinity, you’ve embraced your gifts. Accepted your destiny and gotten Blain to admit that he’s crazy about you.” Trinity’s face turns red. “How are you keeping it together?”
“Well, I wouldn’t say I’m keeping it together. More like I just keep moving on. If I allow myself to think about everything for too long I start to freak out. As far as getting this guy,” Trinity gestures to Blain, “I had to drink some nasty stuff which made me forget who he was, and then almost die before he admitted his feelings. I wouldn’t recommend going to such extremes for another guy ever again.”
“Hey, what do you mean another guy?” Blain’s anger is clear to read and his deep blue eyes turns cold. Morpheus laughs.
“Well,” Trinity glares back at him, “it took you way too long to admit you couldn’t live without me.” Blain’s face smooths.
“Fair point,” Blain concedes.
“Fantastic! Thanks for sharing. I just have one more question for Trinity. After your near death experience, you went back to Blain’s house for the night.”
“Oh, Gods. I’m going to vomit,” Morpheus says, covering his ears.
“Anyway, you had a horrific dream. Do you think it means anything?” Trinity’s eyes darts to her trembling hands.
“Hey,” Blain says sweetly, lifting her chin and looks into her eyes. “What dream is she talking about?” Within seconds, fury highlights his face. Blain rushes around Trinity, jerks Morpheus out of his seat, and throws him across the room.
“Blain, no!” Trinity’s voice echoes in the small room.
“What the hell?” Morpheus looks around the room, pissed. Then being his true self, winks and says, “Did she dream about me?” Blain’s face darkeners more and a blaze of golden sparks fly toward him. Moving with the speed of light, Morpheus dodges the attack, all the while laughing. Running to Blain, Trinity grabs the front of his shirt and shakes him, hard.
“Hey, I’m right here. Stop it.” It takes Blain a few seconds to calm down. The air in the room turns chilly. Blain looks at Trinity and then glares at Morpheus. Finally with a curt nod from Blain, all three take their seats again.
“Before one of you injures the other or blows up this room, we’ll finish…. as soon as Trinity answers my last question.” Trinity holds Blain’s hand, a pained look crosses her face. With a sigh she starts.
“I dreamt that Blain was being attacked and I couldn’t reach him.” Trinity closes her eyes and bows her head, taking a few seconds to compose herself. “I had a terrible feeling, like something was wrong and then I found Blain wrapped in darkness.” Opening her eyes, Trinity turns toward Blain. “I’m not sure if I dreamt that because I saw Melia throw that huge black ball of energy at you or what, but it felt so real.”
Tears trickle down her cheeks. Blain’s expression remains blank, too hard to interpret. “At the end, your body was covered in black and then you disappeared all together.”
I turn my attention to Blain and asked, “Blain, would you like to tell us how you feel or what you think of Trinity’s dream?” Blain looks away from Trinity and with coldness in his voice says, “This interview is over.”
