Creepy Hollow: Meet The Characters
Guardian is a paranormal fantasy that revolves around two main characters: Violet, the faerie guardian-in-training whose routine assignment goes wrong when it turns out the human boy she's trying to protect can see through her faerie glamour, and Nate, the human boy who can see Violet and ends up following her into the fae realm. To get to know these two characters a little better, I got them to answer a few questions...
Before I go, here is an excerpt from the scene in which Nate and Vi first meet each other:
I raise my eyes. The boy is looking at me.
My heart stutters. I mentally feel for my glamour, the magic that should be making me invisible right now. It’s still in place, I’m sure it is. So how can he possibly see me?
This is bad. This is very bad.
A few feet away from me, the boy pushes himself up onto his knees. “What just happened?”
“Um ...” Crap, I am going to lose so many points for this.
“And what the hell is that?”
I follow his gaze to the arrow in my hand. It sparkles with its own light, as though made of hundreds of tiny red-hot stars. I can see how that would look weird to a human. I let go of the arrow. It vanishes, causing the boy’s eyes to grow even wider.
“Well, I should really be going.” I stand up, hoping my stylus is still in my boot.
“Wait.” He gets to his feet. “Who are you? What are you doing here? What was that ... thing?”
“That thing?” I casually reach behind me for the wall. “Oh, you know, just a product of your subconscious. And all that ice cream you ate earlier. Indigestion can make for some interesting dreams.” I cringe internally. Dreams? What idiot would buy that explanation?
His eyebrows draw together. “I guess that could make sense. You are way more attractive than any real-life girl who’s managed to find her way into my bedroom.”
This is not happening.
