Character Conversations with their Younger Selves. -Ethan


Copied from Goodreads. :)

Older E: So... how's it going, man?

Younger E: Alright, I guess. I don't really know what to say.

Older E: It's cool. I'm the one whose supposed to be asking all the questions. Um... (ruffles through some papers). How about telling me where you go to school?

Younger E: Seriously? Man, I feel like I'm back in kindergarten or somethin'.

Older E: Listen, (strains a smile) I have to ask the questions on this paper, and that's exactly what I'm going to do. Can you just bear with me? Yes? Okay, good. Now can I get an answer, please?

Younger E: (grumbles) Fine. I go to Warren's Refuge

Older E: Why do you think they added the word 'neglected' in the title? And does that mean anything to you?

Younger E: I don't care for it one way or another... You know what? Forget it. I'll just tell the truth. I freakin' hate that it's in the title. Neglected by who, exactly? They never told us and it really makes me mad.

Older E: Why?

Younger E: Wouldn't it upset you? You have no idea why you're there, and nobodies telling you the truth. Sometimes it feels like I'm losing my mind.
