Past Reflections

To start things off with this new Friday gig, my dear commenter from Ambrose and Elsie requested a dual interview with not only my first crush but my high school bully at the same time. [[ By the way this goes above and beyond my pay grade!!! ]] So today I have two guests with me – Dylan Reed. (Should the audience clap here or something grins) and Aaron Woolbright (I want booing here :P but it probably wouldn’t happen)

Dylan will come into play in Darwynn’s Law and The Children of Morpheus as well as a few mentions throughout but also in The First Hunt.

Aaron makes a few appearances through out things. At least once or twice in the First Hunt and once in The Last Phoenix.

Dylan and Aaron are seated across from me at a table in the cafeteria in the AU building. The clanking of silverware to plastic plates and the roar of multitudes of conversation is our backdrop sound track.

I take a deep breath and begin with a very simple question. “Would you like me to get you a glass of water? Or would you rather have soda? Wine? Whiskey?” Seriously I can actually make water of out thin air. The rest is a lot more complicated.

Aaron rolls his eyes at me. “Are you going to actually get us anything to drink?”

I nodded. “I am. Well she is.” I point at Jin. She’s not part of my story but hey I need a lackey right now. Sorry Jin, you know I love you. “But it’s also a personal question, what would you prefer at this hour type question.”

Dylan smirked. “I’ll take a water.”

I smiled at my former crush and nod. Jin set a cup down in front of him and water magically appears in it. “Do you get accused of being a health nut too?”

Dylan laughed softly. “No. I wanted to see what you’d do with a simple request.”

Aaron shoved Dylan in the shoulder. “I want a White Russian.”

“Of course you do.” I could have made a joke instead Jin stepped off in the direction of where the mini bar was. It’s my imagination since this would never happen so there! There is no mini bar in the cafeteria by the way. It’s straight up food.

We sat in uncomfortable silence but I decided to break it with a question I’d answered myself in an interview not to long ago.

“What did you eat for breakfast?”

Aaron gave me a side long look. “What the fuck kinda question is that?”

Dylan sighed. “I had …” He stopped and grabbed the kid walking by and pointed. “I had that. Whatever that is.”

I laughed. “That is an egg white omelette with mushrooms and green pepper and looks like topped with Swiss cheese.”

Aaron growled. “Only a fag would know that.”

I rolled my eyes. “Play nice or you can just the fuck out.”

Aaron stood up. “I think I’ll get the fuck out. Sorry ass questions.” Dylan and I watched Aaron walk away.

“Does this mean we are done?”

I shrugged. “If you want it to be.”

“It’s kinda weird you asking me all these personal questions. I mean you tried to kiss me. This isn’t some trick you trying to get with us. I heard you liked it a little freaky.”

“Whatever Dylan. You are not all that!”

Dylan stood up. “Yeah. I think it’s best I go too.”

I nodded, “Alright. See ya round.”

I watched Dylan walk out and couldn’t help but check out his ass. He was still very hot. Though his body wasn’t as good as it used to be – mine is better.
