Thank you for asking so many questions, and thank you for reading! :-)






*Everyone returns to their assigned seats.*


William: *crosses his arms while standing* Why wasn't I told about this interview?

A: *deadpans* Because, William, no one wanted you here. 

William: Oh, but having him here is fine! *points at Stephen*

A: Actually, yes, it is. Stephen is popular, and you are not. But I do have one or two questions for you.

William: *scowls*

A: Why did you do what you did at the end of book 1?

William: *looks at Thia* I didn't realize the consequences yet. Besides, Thia is mine. No one is taking her away from me. 

Chi: Thia doesn't belong to anyone and she was never yours. She's not your little thing to play with, William. 

William: *glares at Chi* The law says she's mine, so shut your mouth!  

A: *clears throat* William, would you agree that you may have feelings for Thia? 

Chi: *snorts disdainfully* Yeah, right!

William: *shifts uncomfortably* Thia is legally mine. I don't have to justify my actions to anyone. 

Chi: *hisses* Prick!

A:  William, if you're not willing to answer the questions, you should leave. 

William: I don't see why I should be the one leaving.

A:  Well, you see, no one wants you here. Not even the readers. And I don't care to see another fight between you and Chi, so please, just leave. 

William: Fine! *slams the door on his way out*

Chi: Good riddance!


A:  Okay, we may proceed.

E: Stephen, what do you think about all those girls fighting over you?

*Willow snorts*

Stephen: It makes me slightly uncomfortable. I mean, I'm concerned for their safety. But I do enjoy being more popular than a certain someone at this table. *looks at Chi pointedly, and his smirk widens* 

Chi: *rolls his eyes* Whatever, dude!

Stephen: *smiles smugly* Green does not become you, baby bro. 

Chi: *gives Stephen the one finger salute*

Stephen: Nice to see you're still not smart enough to use your words.

Chi: Va te faire ***! How about that?

Stephen: And you kissed Mother Dearest with that mouth? *shakes his head*

Chi: *balls his fists and mumbles in French some more*


E: *interfering* Stephen, I brought you something. *stands up and hands Stephen a chocolate bar*

Stephen: *inspects the wrapped chocolate, and asks E.* Thank you, but what's this?

E: It's chocolate.

Chi: *gasps*

Chase: What's chocolate?

Tina: It's some kind of treat. I've read about it in books. It's supposed to be really good.

Stephen: *opens up the wrap and looks at the dark content. Then he cuts two pieces and gives one to Willow*

Chi: Selfish much! Mind sharing with the rest of us too?

Stephen: *raises an eyebrow* Does it look like I want to share it with you? *shoos Chi away like a nasty mosquito*

Willow: *breaks her piece in two and hands a piece out to Chi*

Stephen:  *stares at Willow* Sweetheart! 

Willow: It's mean not to share, Stevie.

Stephen:  I'm not sharing with him! *grabs Chi's chocolate right out of his hands and puts it in his own mouth* There!

Chi: Dude, what the hell?

Stephen:  *smirks at Chi while eating the chocolate* Mmmm, delicious!

Chi: *reaches across to grab the entire bar out of Stephen's hands*

*a fight ensues and everyone else just stares*

A: Calm down! Stop!

*Chi and Stephen stop fighting and A. takes the chocolate away*

Akio: *looks at A.* Dude, can we have some? 

A: Not now, Akio. 

Chase: *laughs* Well, that was fun! D'you guys have more entertainment like that coming?

A: Chase, don't egg them on!

Chase: *flashes a breathtaking smile and winks* Oh, come on!

A: *rolls her eyes* More questions, please...


T: Stephen, would you ever date Thia just to get on Chi's nerves? 

Stephen: *looks at Willow uncomfortably* Uh, I'm not a cheat, T. 

A: What if you weren't with Willow?

Stephen: First of all, I don't believe in forcing myself on girls. So no! Not unless Thia wanted me to. And second of all, I don't know what kind of an a**hole you people take me for, but unlike Chi here, I don't go for other guys' girlfriends. 

Chi: Dude!

Stephen: What? Can't appreciate the truth, little bro? Don't do the deed if you can't stand a nosebleed!

Chi: What? That doesn't even make any sense!

Stephen: Oh, it'll make sense all right when my fist meets your face!

Chi: You're such a prick! *looks at A.* Do I really have to sit next to him?

Stephen: *sneers and asks in a high-pitched voice mocking Chi* Do I really have to sit next to him?


T: *interrupting them quickly* Chi, would you have dated Willow if you'd known she and Stephen were an item? 

Chi: No matter what Stephen likes to think, no, I wouldn't have dated her if I had known. I don't know why he didn't tell me anyway! 

Stephen: *rolls his eyes*

A: That's the end of the interview. I will use the other questions later.


*everyone rises to their feet*


Akio: Man, no one asked me anything!


A: I'm sorry, Akio. There might be questions for you after book 2 and your short story come out.


Akio: *makes a face* Whatever!

Kayla: *walks to Akio and gives him a hug* It'll be for next time, honey. Stop being such a grouch.

Akio: And what happened to that chocolate bar thing anyway?


A: *hands him the bar* Well, I'm out of here.... *walks out quickly with the readers so they don't have to witness another fight.*





Thank you for asking questions. Feel free to ask more. ;-)

Not all is what it seems, open your eyes and you will see.
When the chains break apart, the enslaved shall be free.
When the world has changed, a new dawn it will be."
