Hey, y’all. Time for a character interview with the mythological, Adomous. He tends to be infuriatingly high and mighty, so let’s see if we make it through this with all our skin.
Me: Hi, Adam. Thank you for coming in and answering some questions today.
Adam: I’d say that I try to be helpful, but I don’t want to earn the wrong kind of reputation. Then, the old cronies crawl out of the woodwork to ask for something, and I’m trapped.
Me: Don’t worry, I won’t expose your secret. Let’s jump in. Yeah? What’s in your refrigerator right now?
Adam: Wine and leftovers—coconut curry over rice, more specifically. And creamer. For my coffee in the morning.
Me: That’s it? Really?
Adam: At the moment. The wine does take up quite a bit of space.
Me: Okay. What do you consider your greatest achievement?
Adam: Crawling out from under the old G.O.D. It took millennia, but it is certainly the most rewarding thing I’ve ever done.
Adam: It’s a title, sweetie. And that’s all I can say to someone with your clearance level.
Me: I’m pretty sure I have…
Adam: You don’t.
Me: What is your most treasured possession?
Adam: Something I treasure enough to not reveal what it is. That way, no one can use it as leverage against me.
Me: Why do I feel like I’m talking to Evan again?
Adam: Because you have a death wish?
Me: When and where were you the happiest?
Adam: When I was in the Garden of Eden with Lilith—before she was banished.
Me: Not with Eve?
Adam: I enjoyed spending time with Eve, too, but it wasn’t the same.
Me: What do you most dislike?
Adam: Why evil, of course. It is my job to enforce morality.
Me: How do you feel about your new charge, Lilith Graves?
Adam: I don’t think I can provide a sigh deep enough or long enough to express just how I feel about that young lady. She’s insubordinate and bull-headed. Eternally frustrating with a heart too big. She’ll get herself hurt.
Me: Why did you agree to take the job? There’re hints that you work with her mother?
Adam: I do and have for a long time. She made me what I am, and her trust in me is why I train Lily. I took the job as a favor. To protect her.
Me: Good answer.
All right, Adam might be a bit sour, but I have a feeling there’s a good heart hidden in there somewhere. I hope you get to know him better in THE GIRL WITH THE GLOWING HAIR.
