Sophia: Hi, I’m Sophia, and today I’m interviewing a trio of teens: a young woman and two young men from the Reaper’s Rite series written by Dorothy Dreyer. First, let me introduce our readers to Zadie, Gavin, and Chase.
Gavin: Sorry we were late today. We’ve, uh, got a lot going on.
Sophia: What seems to be the problem?
Zadie: I don’t really want to talk about it.
Chase: And you don’t need to talk about it. I’ll fix the problem.
Gavin: You might not be fast enough, Chase. How long will it take you to make an anti-sleepwalking potion?
Sophia: You’ve been sleepwalking, Zadie?
Zadie: I wish I could say that’s all it is. I’m not so sure.
Sophia: What do you mean? What else could it be?
Gavin: It could be a Reaper taunting her.
Gavin: Zadie, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to upset you.
Zadie: No, it’s okay. You’re right. It could be a Reaper.
Sophia: And an anti-sleepwalking potion would … stop a Reaper?
Chase: No. But it could help Zadie from falling under a trance.
Gavin: A trance a Reaper might put her under.
Sophia: And what happens if you fall under a trance, Zadie?
Zadie: There’s no telling. I might … hurt somebody.
Chase: Or hurt herself.
Gavin: We can’t let that happen.
Chase: Any of it.
Sophia: Do you feel you’ve fallen under a Reaper’s control before?
Zadie: I can’t be totally sure. All I know is I wake up in strange places with no memory of how I got there.
Sophia: That sounds scary.
Zadie: You don’t know the half of it.
Gavin: Which is why we’ve decided to keep a closer eye on her.
Chase: Day and night.
Gavin: Even if that means sneaking into her room without her father knowing. Just to keep an eye on her.
Chase: Or staking out her house. There a good view of her window from the street.
Gavin: As long as you stay in your case and don’t get any funny ideas about climbing up to her window, Chase.
Chase: I can’t make any promises. I mean, if I see something suspicious, there won’t be any holding me back.
Sophia: Is there some kind of trust issue going on here?
Sophia: Zadie, what’s your opinion on this? Zadie? Zadie, are you all right? What’s wrong with your eyes? Zadie? Where are you going?
Gavin: Sorry, Sophia. We’ve got to go.
Sophia: Oh! Hey, you carry daggers with you? Is that legal? Wait! Where are you all going?
Sophia: Well, dear readers, I guess that ends our interview for today. Let’s cross our fingers Zadie will be all right.
