The person that was asked to be interviewed requested that it be done at the lonely Diner that sat in a corner of the small town she grew up in. The early morning crowd had dispersed, and the interviewer, and interviewee, were left with some privacy. They talked over cups of steaming coffee, courtesy of the diner’s owner, Miss Caitlyn.
Interviewer: Let’s start off with your name and, do you have a nickname?
Karen: Karen Turner, but some people call me Kay.
Interviewer: Who are your friends, your family? Who do you stick by?
Karen: I don’t have many friends, Dante and Alex are about it. Jack seems nice though, however strange. Alex is the only family I have left. I stick by myself, and Alex. Family has to stay together, right? Even if it is small.
Interviewer: Wise. What do you do when you get angry?
Karen: I bottle it up honestly. I don’t show much.
Interviewer: What is your biggest fear? Have you told anyone?
Karen: Losing Alex. And no, I haven’t. Why would I?
Interviewer: Give us a childhood memory, one that has stuck with you.
Karen: The car crash. My Aunt Bea was killed in the car fire, but I somehow managed to escape without a scratch. I should’ve died that night.
Interviewer: What is your current state of mind? What are you thinking about right now?
Karen: I’m wondering why I’m being interviewed. And, my current state of mind is slightly confused, and tired. And wondering if Jack is going to pop up again.
Interviewer: What or who do you dislike the most?
Karen: That’s easy! Dante The Drunken Douchebag!
Interviewer: Who is your favorite hero in fiction?
Karen: I don’t have one, not in fiction. In real life? My dad and my uncle. They gave a lot. My dad gave his life, my uncle gave his leg.
Interviewer: what do you lie about most?
Karen: That I’m not angry, or upset.
Interviewer: If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
Karen: I would be more confident in myself.
Interviewer: And last, but not least, what is your greatest regret?
Karen: Hm, there are two actually. Not staying at Jack’s house the night at Rebekah’s party. AND, not punching Dante in the damn face when he’s drunk.
Interviewer: Well, thank you for your time, and we will see you again!
Karen: Yeah, I guess. If you see Jack though, tell him I say ‘thanks’.
Interviewer: For what?
Karen: I’m not sure yet…
