I'm totally having Jenny Morton from The Paranormals series over for dinner because that chick rocks my socks off. She's seriously kickass. It'll be great. We'll can compare notes on how terrible Ashleigh is and how cute Seth is and she can give me all the details on Alexander (you know, the details that weren't in the books, *wink*). As for food, well, I'm not much of a cook, so I will definitely be ordering in for this dinner date. I'm thinking local barbecue--I mean, Jenny's a Southern girl so you can't go wrong with BBQ, right?! I mean, maybe she won't like Missouri style BBQ but maybe she'll love it. And there's always the carry-out pizza place down the street as a back-up plan...
Jenny: That’s not really a fair question. I don’t want to hurt anybody. It just kind of happens.Ashleigh: I’m going to put that down as “ugly monster.” Let’s let Jessi ask the next question. I’m sure she won’t pull from the list of questions I told her not to ask.
Darrell: What you got to understand is that nobody can touch Jenny at all. Not at all. So, as a parent, you got to be careful to wear gloves and all, and on top of that you got to teach her not to hurt nobody. So it ain’t easy. It’ll drive you to drink. But I done my best to take good care of her and teach her right.Ashleigh: (yawns)
Jenny: I don’t know if they deserved it. It’s true that everybody was trying to kill me, and they did kill Seth. But I guess they were all being manipulating by the Goodlings. I wish it hadn’t happened like that. I’d give anything to undo it, but you can’t do undo it.Jessi: Seth, do you feel like a complete jerk after what happened in Charleston?
Seth: Actually, yeah, but I was being manipulated by Ashleigh and her whole Cupid-power thing--Ashleigh: Notice a pattern, Jessi? Everything bad they do, they blame it right on me. As if I could somehow go around tricking people into doing evil things. Everything’s always my fault. They never take responsibility for their own actions.
Tommy: Ashleigh told us what a danger Jenny was, and how evil she was. You see, we’re part of a group, the three of us, we reincarnate, we work together in different lifetimes--
Esmeralda: I love Tommy and Ashleigh both. But my feelings for Tommy are sort of like when you find a little piece of yourself that you lost long ago. And my feelings for Ashleigh are more like...something that consumes you completely.Jessi: Do you think that Ashleigh’s powers have something to do with those feelings or are they entirely your own? Or, actually, let’s ask someone else who has experienced the effects of Ashleigh’s power. Seth--or even Jenny, since you have experienced her powers indirectly--what are your thoughts on Esmerelda’s feelings? Tell us a little about what it felt like to be under Ashleigh’s spell.
Seth: Esmeralda is delusional. Ashleigh makes you feel love when she touches you. And it’s addictive, it really is. But she’s a horrible person who lies and manipulates and uses everyone around her--Ashleigh: Next question! We’re almost out of time.
Alexander: I came to Fallen Oak in search of Jenny. She and I have been close for thousands of years, lovers for hundreds of lifetimes--
Seth: Hey, back off! Jenny loves me, not you.
Alexander: We’ll see, pretty boy.Ashleigh: I really don’t see why Jenny is worth fighting over. Somebody should just drown her like an unwanted kitten. Anyway, it looks like our time is running out, and since everybody’s saying nasty things about me for some reason, I think we should wrap this up. I think Angeline Kace needs this room for her character interviews. She’s hogging all the book blogs.
