Interviewing Rose



Hello. Today I’ve arranged an interview with my main character from Dewdrops and Butterflies, Rose. Combining questions a normal interview would have with some people on my Instagram asked, (I shall post a link to my Instagram soon) I got a decent list, so let’s get started, shall we?
Rose will be in Bold and I will be normal.

Hello dear! It’s such a pleasure to sit down and chat with you again!

If that’s what you call it. It’s been a while since the first *whispers* and I hoped last time, we did this.

Don’t worry, I promise it’ll be fun. You want to tell us a little bit about yourself before you start answering questions?

*shrugs* Sure, whatever you want. I’m Rose, my full name is Rose Ann Wells. I’m 14 years old and I live with my mom and dad. I like earth and being left alone and food.

And Butterfly lights. Don’t forget to mention those. You really are a masterpiece, you know that?

Ugh… ok? I don’t know what that’s supposed to me. Can we start on the questions?

Of course. Our first question is: Are you happy?

Yup.

That’s it? You don’t want to elaborate more?

Nope.

Ok… Next question. If you could travel anywhere in the world where would it be?

Oh this is fun. Um. I would go to San Francisco and then I would go to New York and then I would fly back to LA and then I would fly away to London and live there.

That sounds like an adventure! Why would you do it that way?

So no one could find me. It’s really easy to blend in to the crowds and I’d be able to see all the sights and then in Britain I would be surrounded by the accent and country side and no one would know me.

Ok… Interesting. Alright next question. Who is your favorite celebrity?

I don’t have one. I like cereal and warm houses and clean shoes and cats. I don’t like famous people.

You don’t like people in general, though. Could you pretend to though, just for the interview?

I do like people. I just don’t like adults, or kids who have long noses, or a goverment job.

So you don’t like social workers and police officers?

Stop making everything public! I’m trying to stay under the radar here!

Sorry sorry! Ok back to the questions. What is your biggest dream and your greatest fear.

Whats with all these philosophical questions. Can’t you ask like what my favorite color is? Or better yet, maybe I can ask YOU questions.

We can do both of those things after we go through the list.

Ok. Well, my biggest dream is…

You can share your thoughts Rose. It’s safe here.

I really want my own apartment. Just a place to call my own, where nobody tells me what to do and nobody is yelling and I get to decorate it the way I want to.

You will! You get to do that when you graduate school and get a job to support yourself. It takes work though.

But that’s in such a long long time! Years, and I want it now.

And I just want to hug you. But since you’re fictional I can’t. I guess we’ll just have to both survive. Ok, what’s your greatest fear.

We can skip that question if you want.

Rose it’s ok. Next question, dogs or cats?

*whispers* Mom

What?

It’s Mom. I’m scared of her all that time.

Love, I give you my word that things will turn out ok, alright? Can you trust me on that?

I don’t know how you can do that, but I just want to be free of everything already!

You will be. You’ll get there. Don’t give up. Follow what you think is best. Everything will turn out exactly how it’s supposed to. (I know cuz I read the end).

That’s reassuring. You’re the author. You knew the ending while you were still writing the beginning. While you were writing me now, and tomorrow and the day after. Nothing has changed.

Just because you don’t see it doesn’t mean it’s not there. Buckle your seatbelt. Life is about to get a whole lot more wild.

I don’t have a seatbelt. And I don’t like being tied down. Also cats. Dogs are nice, but cat’s are nicer.

Ok. Why?

*shrugs* cuz? Does it have to have a reason behind it?

No it doesn’t always. Cookies or Ice cream?

Brownies in ice cream.

What is your favorite color?

Purple.

You make interviewing so interesting.

Sorry, I can be more detailed if you like. The color of the sky sometimes rarely when the sun goes down and it’s between blue and red.

XD Ok we get the point. Last questions-

I thought I got to ask the last question!

You will, right after this one. If you could change your name, what would you change it to and why?

Umm. I never thought about that before. Maybe Kayla, cuz of my black hair and your other character Kayla. Or maybe Jasmine because I feel like that name is spicy and I am spicy.

Oh dear are you now. Alright. XD What is your question for me.

… Am I going to be ok? Like, I know I’m going to be alive, *eyes widen* at least I hope. But am I going to be ok here? *taps heart* Am I ever going to be able to rest?

Love… I love you. God loves you. You can always trust Him to lead you to the best possible place for you to be. Yes. You’re going to be alright. You’re going to be ok. You’re going to find peace.

Thank you. Can I go now?

Yes. Thank you for talking with us and answering the questions. Take care of yourself. I’ll see you soon. We’ll all see you soon.

How soon?

September. Dewdrops and Butterflies is scheduled to publish in September.

*Que excited squeals from everyone*
*except me because now I’m totally freaking out that I made it public finally*

Ok. I’ll see you then. Goodbye.

Rose hopped off her chair and gave me a wave before turning to the door, but she hesitated. Quickly she turned back and hugged me tightly, then ran out the door without a backwards glance. She is going to be ok. She’s going to be fine.
But things will get worse before they get better.

There you go you guys! What did you think? What are your thoughts on Rose? Are you curious? CAN YOU BELIEVE ITS SCHEDULED TO PUBLISH IN SEPTEMBER?! I THINK IM GOING TO PANIC! Should I do interviews like this for other characters? Let me know in the comments!

Till next week. Live laugh and love, girls!
