Hello and welcome to this week’s installment of Character Conversations! Today’s character is maybe what we would call a bit…commandeering. But there’s a soft-center there, somewhere. It might just take some time finding it… XD
Me: Hello Kassandra.
Kass: Just Kass. I hate Kassandra. My dad calls me Kassandra.
M: …Um…okay? You seem to have a…tense relationship with your father. Why?
K: *laughs mirthlessly* Don’t even get me started on that. He only ruined my life. Give me a different question.
M: Okay. Are you a Super?
K: No. But I could kill you in five different ways.
M: *trembles* How so?
K: Knife, sword, baton…Oh, you mean how, like how did I learn to do that? Dad taught me. I hated every minute of training.
M: You’re really making Alex out to be this horrible monster. He can’t be all that bad, can he?
K: We moved thirteen times when I was growing up. I never had the chance to make friends, become acclimated to my house, even memorize the layout of the city. Not to mention he broke up with Mom. She was the only one who understood. *voice cracks* Ugh, but I’m just ranting now. Next question.
M: *frowns* You seem pretty comfortable here in Fallcoast. Don’t you like it here?
K: Yeah. Who knows how long I’ll be staying here, but yes, I do like it. There’s even this guy I kinda like…
M: Yes, I know. Don’t remind me. Please. *cringes*
K: You don’t even know who it is.
M: It’s Jake Kauffman. It’s pretty obvious you like him.
K: *eyes widen, but plays it cool* Fine. So the secret’s out. I’m pretty sure he likes me too. If that Lena girl would quit following him around…
M: Next question. Are you a criminal?
K: What kind of question is that?!
M: It’s a fair question, I’d say. Your dad is. Wouldn’t that make you one too?
K: *looks furious* I am determined not to walk in my father’s footsteps! He’s a thieving, malicious, coward. Why would I be like him?
M: *cries on the inside* You really don’t like your father, do you? Well, okay, so you’re not a criminal. But your dad trained you for a reason. If that reason wasn’t to steal, what was it?
K: *blushes* Just because he trained me to, doesn’t mean I have to.
M: *smiles* You know, you seem kinda lonely. Do you have many friends?
K: *looks up, angry* What’s it to you?
M: Um, I’m the one interviewing you?
K: *defensive* I have friends. At school. We hang out. At lunch.
M: And pick on everyone else?
K: Well if they didn’t give me so many opportunities, I wouldn’t be tempted!
M: *fights rolling eyes* Okay, fine. How about some parting questions? What’s your favorite food?
K: Mom used to make this chicken noodle soup, when I was sick. *looks distant* It was so good. I miss it…
M: *feels sympathetic* Do you do anything after school?
K: *frowns* Dad insisted I be in sports, so I’m on the soccer team. And I take karate classes.
M: Okay, finally…Do you really think your Dad left your Mom?
K: Well, yes, duh. That’s always what he’s told me! What else could it be?
M: Hm. I was just curious. *shrugs* But anyway, thank you for allowing me an interview.
K: Sure, whatever.
What do you think? She’s a bit harsh, but I still kinda like her. Let me know what you think in the comments down below! 🙂
