So we’re continuing with A Wolf’s Duty and this week it’s Tobias that’s in the driver’s seat. Once the introductions are out of the way that’ll be it from me for another week.
JTA: So Tobias, do you want to say hello to the nie people?
Tobias: I’d really rather be spending time with my mate. Where is she?
JTA: Alex was here last week, you’ve just missed her but as soon as you’ve answered my questions I swear I’ll let you go and you can go and find her.
Tobias: Well then I’d really rather you asked your questions quickly.
JTA: You seem worried….
Tobias: I love my mate but she does have a way of trouble finding her. Every time I let her out of my sight she seems to have people trying to kill her.
JTA: I can see why that would be a problem. Do you think it’s something she’s doing that makes people want to hurt her?
Tobias: Damn straight! She’s too nice. If she let me kill half the people that tried to hurt her the first time they wouldn’t be alive to try and hurt her again.
JTA: *gulps* Well on that rather bloody note I think I’ll be leaving. *Thrusts the questions at his chest* I thought it would be fair to ask you the same questions I asked Alex. Here you go. Try not to kill anyone while I’m gone.
Tobias: As long as no one bad mouths my mate no one will die.
JTA: I can’t promise anything but trust me I’m not going to be saying bad about her!
Tobias: I’m going to be quick about this. I have places to be and a mate to find.
What’s your biggest fear?
I’m not afraid of much but when it comes to Alex I lose all sense so my biggest fear would be losing her. If I lost her my wolf would drive me insane, that’s one of the reasons mates don’t last long without each other. And even if I didn’t have an animal inside me mad with loss I don’t think I’d want to be in a world that didn’t have her in it. She’s like my own personal sun, when I’m with her the world is a bright beautiful place and when she’s gone everything is dark. But I’m pretty good at making sure my fears don’t happen. Anything that threatens her doesn’t last long.
If someone dared you to jump out of a plane (with a parachute) would you?
Is there a particular reason I should be afraid of jumping out of a plane? I’m not afraid of heights and if something went wrong I’d heal. Free fallins is exhilarating. All of you should try it some time.
What is your earliest memory?
Travis. I remember Travis. I remember my brother, my twin. I remember when the hunters took him from me. He didn’t deserve to die, especially not like that. He was so much gentler than I was. He didn’t pose a threat to anyone and they killed him anyway. After that I remember the lack of freedom. Not only was I mourning the loss of my brother I was mourning the loss of my ability to go where I chose and do what I wanted. I understand my parents did it to protect me but none of you have any idea what that does to a wolf. It was like I was in a cage and no one was giving me the key.
What is your most prized possession?
I know I don’t own her but my mate is what I treasure most in this world. If you had searched the world a hundred times over you’d be possessive as well. I looked in every country, walked and ran miles, climbed mountains, swam seas to find her. I’ll never have another and I’d never want another either. So she is what I prize most.
What is your ideal romance?
My idea romance? Seriously? Who thinks these questions up? Hang on a minute…she asked my mate this? Maybe there was a point to this useless question and answer session. I can’t wait to find out what Alex had to say. As for me…my ideal romance is simple. Uncomplicated. It wasn’t what I got but who wants the ideal that you can never have when you can grab reality with both hands? I certainly did.
Tobias: So that’s it. *stands up* I’m going to find my mate –
JTA: Tobias? Where are you going?
Tobias: To find Alex obviously.
JTA: You’re not even going to tell me how it went?
Tobias: I answered your questions and now I want to find my mate, what does it matter how it went?
JTA: About that…
Tobias: About what?
Tobias: You’re walking on dangerous ground. Choose your next words carefully.
JTA: I just saw her.
JTA: And she asked me to give you this. *Hands him a note and is mildly perturbed when he crushes it in his hand* What does it say?
Tobias: It says that she wants me to stay here for a week and that her magic will keep her safe and away from me until my time here is up.
JTA: Why would she do something like that?
Tobias: She says because I need to learn that the world isn’t out to get her. She thinks this is going to be for the best.
JTA: So what are you going to do?
Tobias: That’s obvious, I’m going to stay here all bloody week and answer your ridiculous questions.
JTA: Just like that?
Tobias: My mate has asked me to do something. I can’t say no.
JTA: Wow! When she said she had her ways I didn’t really believe her but clearly she does have a magical talent! So now that we’ve got Tobias to agree to stay for the rest of the week, be sure to hound him with questions. There is nothing too big or too small for him to answer. And then after that the choice is back in your hands. We’ve met the main characters from A Wolf’s Duty so who is going to be next? The choice is up to you!
