Welcome to part three of Lyn’s author spotlight! Today with a character interview I was looking forward to do for a very long time. Ladies…meet Aethan! 🙂
Me: Tell us, Empyrean, how old are you?
Aethan: Mortals are obsessed with age. *Shakes head* Týr thinks I’m older than dirt.
Me: Why so reluctant? Just tell the number… 😉 I heard the word three-thousand once. Is it true?
Aethan: Yeah, that I’ve been on this realm. Let’s just say not as old as the Arc.
(His eyes gleam in amusement.)
Me: What have you been up to in all this time?
Aethan: Keeping humans out of trouble—not an easy task when they have this inane ability to attract trouble of the worst kind, makes our job damn difficult.
Me: Felt lonely at some point?
Aethan: My life is one of solitude—or it used to be.
Me: You’ve been alone a long time. Have you never had a woman in all the years after you left Empyrea?
Aethan: Not humans…ah, *a hint of a smile* they can’t handle me, except my mate…
(Ah damn, that smile—so sexy. I should have met this man a year ago…before he bumped into Echo)
Aethan: She wasn’t afraid of me, or interested—something I wasn’t used too… then she jumped on that bench, yeah, that was it.
Me: How did the blue get into your hair? And how long is your hair at the moment?
Aethan: *Shrugs* The color is a recessive gene… inherited from my father’s side of my family. *He pulls off the tie, and his hair falls to his shoulder*
(Beautiful! Like a cloud of blue-black silk. I can’t resist, I touch the strands, shocking him but he lets me—cool guy. And it feels just like silk, too. I have to force my hand away from his hair…)
Me: What do you miss most about Empyrea?
Aethan: My family. *His expression turns stark—sad.* My friends, Reynner and Vallex.
Me: What do you like most in the human world? (Apart from Echo 😉 )
Aethan: The simple lives humans lead. Technology.
Me: You didn’t have technology in Empyrea?
Aethan: We have powers—abilities, there is no need for technology.
Me: Did you shower in the river and dry naked in the wind?
Aethan: Aah. *Another hint of a smile.* We have those facilities. But nothing beats nature.
Me: LOL! Okay, we’re reaching the end of our nice chat. For the closing, I have a list of quick draw questions.
Aethan: Two. Reynner & Vallex
Waltz or Tango?
Aethan: Range Rover
Me: And here I thought he would say “flashing”. Favorite clothes on Echo?
Aethan: A grin… As little as possible.
Sex with music or without?
Aethan: Depends… on the mood.
Planning on children?
What name would you give them?
Aethan: Ben & Jerry. *smiles*
Ever heard of facebook?
Aethan: *grimaces* I communicate telepathically with the other warriors and even that’s a pain in the ass—
Me: LOL. Right, got it. Thank you so much for chatting with me. Give all your guardian friends my love—and my number. 😉
Okay, ladies, this was the end of Lyn’s author spotlight at my place. I thought it was a lot of fun and hope you enjoyed it too.
Happy egg hunt, everyone!
