THESE BONES DRUMMER, WARRIOR CLOAKED IN BLACK
Maria B: Please feel free to ask Jesse any questions. Be warned, though, he may take his time answering…
Maria B: Welcome, Jesse! Let me start by saying you were a joy to write. You’re my unsung hero, the tall dark and handsome young warrior of my dreams. If ever I was to fall in love with one of my own characters, you would be it. How does that make you feel?
Jesse: Wow… How does that make me feel? I think I’ll have to come back with an answer later. Lady, you’ve rendered me speechless. It’s not everyday I’m faced with such a declaration.
Maria B: Of course, take your time. I of all people know you hate to be rushed. I will await your answer as patiently as possible.
Beverly & Jesse…
Jesse: Don’t be shy. Start with something simple then work your way up to complicated.
Beverly: Okay, here goes. Who are you, Jesse Rain, and where do you come from?
Jesse: You’ve started with the complicated.
Beverly: I thought you said you weren’t complicated.
Jesse: I’m not, but your question is.
