And Now Here’s an Exclusive Character Interview of Alexis from DECEPTION
Hi, Alexis. Thanks for joining us today.
Thanks for inviting me. I always appreciate the chance to get away from my life for a while.
Your life gets to be a bit much for you?
It sure does. I can’t wait to get away from my family and this small town. It’s suffocating.
What bothers you the most about your family?
My parents blatantly favor my little sister. They throw it in my face all the time and even though I’m a calm and rational person, I have a growing anger inside of me. I find myself getting closer and closer to losing my self-control.
Do you know why your parents favor your sister over you?
Natalie is my mom’s mini-me. She’s beautiful, popular, and one of the stars of our school volleyball team. My friends and I have a hard time understanding it. I’m the one who gets straight A’s in my honors-only classes and I win all kinds of academic awards. I even went to the White House after winning a national science contest and I’m the first junior to be president of the honors club in our school. She hits a ball and is the family hero. They don’t care about any of my academic achievements, they just tell me that I should be more like her.
You sound like every parent’s dream. Do you think there are deeper reasons for the favoritism?
I have reasons to believe that I was adopted, but my parents deny it with a passion. There are undeniable facts that point to me being adopted and they still refuse to admit that I was adopted.
There are no pictures of me before I was three and they have the lamest excuse for that. They have all of Natalie’s pictures and I wasn’t in any of those before I turned three, either. Have you ever heard of parents not taking any pictures of their children together? Something is definitely up.
It sounds like it! I hear that strange things are happening to you and around you. Is that true?
Is it ever! I’ve been trying to ignore the fact that I seem to be the cause of most of them. The last thing that I need is more drama in my life. I just want to focus on keeping my grades up so that I can get into an Ivy League college. Maybe if I ignore all of the strange things going on, they’ll go away.
Do you really believe that?
I suppose not, but one can hope. If I keep myself busy then at least I don’t have to think about it.
Do you have any love interests?
No, no, and no. It drives my friends crazy that I am so disinterested in boys, but I see no reason to get all worked up over them. They would only distract me from my school work.
One friend has actually set me up on a blind date with her cousin for the upcoming Homecoming dance. She has this crazy idea that we’re going to hit it off. She says that he’s gorgeous and that she can dress me up so much that all the girls will be jealous of me. I’ll believe that when I see it.
That sound like it will be interesting! Is there anything else that you’d like to share before we close?
If you could find a way to get the crows to stop following me and chasing me, I would appreciate that! They’re really creepy and ever since I read that they’ve been known to represent death, I’ve been freaking out.
I wish I could help you with that. Maybe your blind date can help you with them. Hang in there! Thanks for joining us today.
My pleasure. I’ll see you in Deception!
And thank you Stacy for the character interview!
