Flyboy has written back, in response to this letter.
First of all, Spencer needs to mind her own business. I didn’t ask her to poke her nose into what is going on with me and Wilson and D. How am I supposed to feel when I come from THE WORST DAY IN MY LIFE EVER and Spencer perched on the side of the bed like a little bird spooning who knows what kind of elixir into D’s mouth and then laughing at Wilson’s jokes? Even Nurse Lemon has fallen under her spell. Well not me.
D doesn’t have to talk to make it clear how he feels about me. Plus he throws things at me. Pillows and books I can handle but the other day he threw a baseball at my head. How would that make YOU feel?
As for Wilson, maybe he could ask me how I feel once in a while?
I will not talk to you about the dog at all. AT ALL. Do you understand?
Oh, he’ll talk to you. I don’t think HE understands. I’m developing quite the antagonistic relationship with this guy–and loving every minute of it. It’s NOT–like you said the other day–making him feel too unlikeable; it’s just making me KNOW that he’s got some seriously good reasons for developing such think armor. Which is intriguing, to say the least.
I don’t know that I’m worried about making him too unlikeable but that he is always such a downer that people will want to feed him Prozac. 🙂
And then he’ll throw it down their garbage disposal! It’ll be a great scene!!! 🙂
Oh, your character’s letters make me so curious! Can’t wait to read the book!
Thanks so much. Sometimes they are the only prod that keeps me going so your encouragement helps.
