Lillian: Today I am so excited to have Alyx, Israel and Jordan from the Dark Angel series. Welcome!
Jordan: Lillian, the pleasure is all ours *scoops up Lillian’s hand and presses a kiss to the back of it*
Lillian: *blushes and continues flustered* I’m having a hard time figuring you out, Jordan.
Jordan: My lady! How come?
Lillian: You’re a smooth talker and tend to get your way with the ladies by just smiling.
Jordan: Why, thank you.
Lillian: *shakes head* Yet you deal with the devil. How did you start a relationship with the demon Balthazar and how can you trust him?
Jordan: Lillian, although the outside package can be… *roams eyes appreciatively up and down Lillian* … a wondrous thing, it’s not the best way to judge someone’s character. The color of someone’s skin can’t tell you what kind of person they are.
Lillian: So you try to get to know someone before you judge them.
Jordan: And it can be fun to… get to know someone, Lillian *winks*
Lillian: *stares, open-mouthed and speechless*
Israel: *roll eyes* Seriously?
Jordan: What? I’m just being friendly.
Israel: Any friendlier and you’d have her in your lap.
Jordan: You’re just jealous. *slings arm around Alyx* cause the ladies will choose me over you.
Israel: Get your God damn hands off her.
Jordan: Or what? You’ll throw a tantrum?
Alyx: *grabs both Jordan and Israel’s arms and twists them behind their backs* Both of you, behave.
Israel & Jordan: He started it.
Alyx *twists their arms harder*
Israel & Jordan: Okay. We’ll behave. We’ll behave!
Alyx: *slowly releases them*
Lillian: *clears throat* So Alyx, there seems to be some tension between the three of you… understandable seeing as what happened between you and Jordan when Israel was in his coma and you lost your memories of him. What happens from here?
Alyx: *long sad pause* I… I don’t know… Can we talk about something else?
Lillian: Sure. How about we talk about the rest of your time as a Rogue, since you escaped
Michaelea. What’s the hardest thing you’ve learned out here?
Alyx: Freedom can be hard. Everybody thinks they want freedom. But with freedom it means you have to think for yourself, make decisions – difficult decisions – yourself and it means that the responsibilities of your actions are all on you. You can’t point your finger at someone else when the consequences go south.
Lillian: Like the deal you made to save Israel’s life?
Alyx: *small nod*
Lillian: You have seven days to defeat Samyara or you give up Israel… what are you going to do?
Alyx: We’ll find a way.
Lillian: And if you fail?
Alyx: I’m not handing Israel over.
Lillian: But then you forfeit your life…
Israel: I’m not letting her do that.
Alyx: Israel, I−
Israel: I. Am. Not. Letting. You. Do. That.
Lillian: Jordan, you risked your life to save Israel when you went with Alyx on her adventure to find a cure for him.
Jordan: *winks* Just another day at the office.
Lillian: You lost your ability to hear at one stage and Alyx lost her ability to fly. What was that like?
Jordan: Disconcerting, at first but… *smiles at Alyx* We worked together, covering each other’s weaknesses. She was my ears when I couldn’t hear… just like I was her wings…
Lillian: *shakes head, smiling* You love her, don’t you?
Jordan: It’s hard not too…
Lillian: When you learnt that her memories were gone, why did you still pursue her? Some people might call that action selfish.
Jordan: Selfish? Perhaps I was… but would you give up a chance at love if it was presented before you?
Lillian: *shrugs* I wouldn’t be married if I did.
Israel: It was selfish. Don’t try and justify it.
Jordan: *turns to Israel* If everything was right between you and her, then nothing would have happened between her and I, would it?
Alyx: Boys, may I remind you who our real enemies are? It’s not each other.
Lillian: Like Samyara… And Elder Michael. Samyara’s plan has been obvious almost from the start. What about Michael?
Alyx: I don’t know. Everything I find out about him just confuses me more; his dark army, his breeders, his strange Tree of Knowledge… But that’s what is terrifying. We’re only seeing the tip of the iceberg with him.
Lillian: You guys have a lot to do in seven days, so thank you for taking the time to meet with me and answer my questions. *shakes Israel, Alyx, and Jordan’s hands* Good luck!
Hanna began to write at the tender age of seven, starting with a daring and questionable autobiography entitled Go Suck a Lemon. Perhaps it was a little before its time.
After leaving school she agreed with everyone who said she needed to get a degree and a real job to become a proper adult. She kept writing as a hobby. After starting (and never finishing) several degrees and switching from multiple careers, she finally decided that being a proper adult was overrated.
In 2012, she sold everything, moved to Europe and began to write full-time. Eternally restless, Hanna has lived in Indonesia, Australia, Germany and Scotland. She is currently residing in England.
She is addicted to coffee and chocolate and would one day like to own a dragon.
