A-Z Challenge: B

Today is the letter B! (I feel like I'm on sesame street!)

B is for Barren, my MC.


Or if you like the cartoon one:

He's the second from the left. 
I decided I would interview Barren for this one:

*Barren acts like he's comfortable in his chair, but really isn't*
Me: So, are you ready? These are tough questions!
Barren: As ready as I'm going to be. 
Me: Okay then. First question: What do you like most about yourself?
Barren: *quiet for a long moment* I guess I can say I like myself now. I like who I am now. 
Me: Can you elaborate? 
Barren: *uneasy* I regret many things in my past. I am a pirate, after all...I'll let you guess as to why I hate the person I was.
Me: *nods in understand* What would your best friend say was your best attribute? 
Barren: *laughs* Leaf would say I didn't have one. *pause* Maybe my selflessness. 
Me: What about the worst attribute?
Barren: selflessness. 
Me: By this point in your life, what do you regret most? 
Barren: *shifts uneasily* Murder. 
Me: *shutters* Are we supposed to think you're a good person? 
Barren: *pause* I hope you do.

    1. My friend read my book and was like "Ashley, you have to google Matthew Bomer from White Collar. He. IS. Barren." lol. So, I haven't actually watched it yet (though it's on my list of things to hulu).

  13. Awesome interview! You have him squirming in his seat. There's a lot of secrets that make a man act like that.
