"Hey, uh, Alexis right?" My head snapped up from the desk immediately. Had it been fifteen minutes already?
"Uh yeah. Yes. Hi Harry." I cleared my throat and re-shuffled my papers again. I looked up at him. "You're early, anything I can do for you?"
He smiled sheepishly, scratching the side of his head. "Yeah, I know. But I uh..." He looked at me quickly before running to sit back in his chair. "Were you serious? About questions for me?"
I leaned back in my chair. Someone really wanted to answer some questions.
"Yes, I was serious." I raised an eyebrow at him as he leaned towards me.
"So? What is it?" I chuckled.
"Shouldn't we wait for the others?" He pouted and sat back in his chair. "Or..." He grinned, sitting up again.
"Harry, why keep the secret from Kelly? And who told you?" Harry leaned back, crossing his legs and stoking his chin. I tried to keep from laughing at his serious face.
"And this is the last questions from, um, BrokenYetDreaming, correct?" I almost lost it at that, but I managed to keep straight faced.
"She has a lot of good questions, especially this one. I like this one." I nodded, crossing my arms.
"Well, my mom told me the "secret", but honestly, I always felt like I always knew. you know?" I nodded again, uncrossing my arms.
"Tell me more." He smiled at my interest.
"It was just this feeling I had. Kelly and I were always close, but not a sibling kind of close, a friend kind of close? Our parents never talked much about their lives before me, and Kelly never remembered... Something was always off, but in a good way. If that makes sense." I smiled at him and then at the others as they re-entered the office.
"It makes a lot of sense Harry, thank you for your answer." He smiled slightly and leaned back in his chair, seemingly to disappear for the next half hour or so of the interview.
I frowned at him, but I had an interview to finish.
"Welcome back, welcome back. I hope you all enjoyed your break?"
"I'll enjoy this interview being over." Kelly kicked Paul in the shin.
"What!" I ignored them all and looked back down at the remaining questions. It was almost over...
"Rapid fire question time!" They all stared at me questioningly and I cleared my throat awkwardly. "All these questions are from CallmeRiley, and they're to be answered with the first thing that comes to mind. And these questions are for everyone." I winked at Harry then sat back in my chair.
"Alright!" Paul rubbed his hands together. "Now this will be fun." I tried to ignore the double meaning in his words.
"Question one. Would you rather be hot or cold?"
"Hot! I'm already there." Paul answered first, answering the question then leaning back with a cocky grin.
Kelly rolled her eyes. "Hot. Its not like I have a choice."
"Cold." Embry piped up next. "I kind of miss the feeling."
"Hot… I miss California." Harry shrugged.
I nodded, jotting down notes for who knows what reason. I hadn't taken notes this entire time…
"Question two. Would your rather have to spend a year in the movie jaws or join the hunger games?"
"Jaws." Paul cracked his knuckles. "I could take those sharks."
"Jaws." Kelly placed her hands on Paul's, giving him a stern look. "So I can keep this idiot out of trouble."
Paul glared at her. "I would be fine.." She smiled patronizingly.
"'Course you would."
"Hunger games! If Kelly would let me…" Harry glanced at his sister. She shook her head.
"I'd go to the Hunger Games with him. We'd make a killer team."
"Sweet!" The two high fived, and I began to worry that I may have started something horrible.
"Question three!" I continued quickly. " Who is your favorite telletubbie?"
"The green one!" Paul.
"That's my favourite!" Embry.
"Too bad! You snooze, you lose!" Embry tried to lunge over Harry at Paul, but Kelly got between them somehow..
"Uh, Harry?" He looked at me with wide eyes.
"The yellow one," he squeaked, trying to avoid the chaos in front of him.
"I like the red one!" Paul and Embry froze.
"The red one?!" They said in unison.
"Really Kell? The red one? The smallest one?" Paul scoffed and Embry shook his head.
"That's disappointing Kelly." Kelly stared at Embry in shock.
"Really guys? Po is adorable." She sat back in her chair, seemingly upset.
"Moving on?" No one said anything. "Question four. Have you ever given much thought to how you would die?"
Kelly answered first. She crossed her arms over her chest and stared at me. "With this dork apparently." She punched Paul in the arm. "Apparently I don't have a choice."
"I've never really thought about it. Dying, I mean, especially after phasing. But I think I would stop phasing, to die with her." I couldn't help but smile at Paul's cheesy-ness.
"That's cute," I mumbled, turning to the others.
"That's disgusting," Harry shuddered. I narrowed my eyes at him.
"How about you Harry? Have you give it much thought?" He shook his head.
"I'm fifteen. I just want to graduate."
"Good," Kelly piped up.
"No. I decided I'm going to cross that bridge when I come to it." He shrugged and I nodded.
"Understandable." He smiled at me. "Last question."
"Seriously? Man, I barely got to answer any!" I smiled apologetically at Harry. Paul ruffled his hair.
"Sorry bud, guess you're just not interesting enough." Harry punched Paul's arm and immediately cradled that hand to his chest.
"How much wood can a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?" Harry burst out laughing and it wasn't long until Paul and Embry followed suit.
"That cannot be a serious question." Kelly raised an eyebrow at me.
I shrugged. "I can't say. We'll just have to assume it is."
She shook her head at me. "I am not answering that." I chuckled.
"How about the rest of you?" They all shook their heads, wiping tears away. "I guess that's it then. Thank you for coming and for your cooperation. It's been very nice speaking to all of you."
Embry and Harry left first, waving and trying to push each other out the door. Paul next, telling Kelly he'd be in the car.
"Yes?" She had paused in the doorway.
"Can I ask you a question?" I smiled, nodding. This was new.
"Go ahead." She frowned at me.
"Will we ever see you again? I mean…Is our story over?" I stared at her for a couple of minutes before answering.
"No. I don't think so. Do you want it to be?" She shook her head.
"No, not at all. So, there's a chance that we might meet again?"
"A chance." She smiled.
"Good. See you later Alexis. Maybe."
I waved then Kelly was gone.
I took a deep breath after they were all gone. Well, this went a lot better than my first interview did.
I got up slowly, and instantly regretted not stretching when I had the chance. I shoved all my notes and questions back into my bag, glancing at the clock. Time does fly when you're locked in a room with people you know way too well…
Groaning, I dragged myself outside, turning to lock the doors. I looked inside my office one last time, staring longingly at my computer.
"I'll be back," I whispered, and then glanced around to make sure no one had heard anything.
I locked the doors quickly then practically ran down the street.
Also, if anyone has any ideas for a new story, feel free to share! I'm on Spring Break right now, and I'm looking to possibly start something new?
If not, this is goodbye! For now…
