Three years ago, the Nero Virus turned 80% of the world's population into flesh eating biters. The biters want one thing, to devour and feast on the uninfected. A few survivors live on the Isle of Smythye one of the last bastions of humanity.
Today, I'm interviewing a character from my dystopian / post apocalyptic novel Wisteria. We were supposed to get Wisteria, but she couldn’t make it. So we’ve got her mother.
B: Brilliant. What’s your name?
L: I'm called Omolara Kuti or Lara for short.
B: Does it mean anything?
B: I hear Lara may not be your real name.
L: (smiles) It isn't, but my real name isn't any of your business.
B: Where were you born? Where do you call home?
L: I was born in General Hospital on Lagos Island and I used to call Lagos home. Now the Isle of Smythe is the only home I have.
B: What is your most treasured possession?
L: I treasure my family the most, not that they’re my possessions. I’d do anything for them; even kill for them if I had to.
B: Whoa... but you've never done that right? I mean...kill someone to protect your family.
L: (Smirks) please, ask me something else
B:What or who is the greatest love of your life?
L: (Scowls) Next question
B: So what do think about Wisteria's relationship with Bach? I'm sure your daughter hanging out with a Supernatural must be an interesting experience.
L: Over my dead body. There is no relationship between Wisteria and Bach. None! And to answer your question about killing someone, Bach is at the top of my list. If I find he's been seeing Wisteria, he will end him. Just so you understand I’m serious, I used to be solider and I’ve taken people down before.
B: Seriously? Aren't you overreacting?
L: No. His people are dangerous.
B: Why are they so dangerous? It’s not like they eat people or hunt us.
L: They hate all humans. I’ll never forget the night the Family's empirics broke into my home and killed my first husband and took my first child. I wasn’t strong enough to protect them them, but I am now and I'll never let those freaks near my family.
B: And when you explained this to her, what was her reaction?
L: I told you, she's sixteen, so I won't burden her with something so heavy. I'm her mother and she'll do what I say.
B: Even when you lie to her?
L:(Laughs). Especially when I lie. Don't look at me like that... I lie to protect her.
B: Maybe you could try being more open with her. She might--
L: Listen, I didn't agree to this interview, so you could lecture me on how to be a mother. I'm getting out of here (leaves).
B: Er... it think we are done?
