"Today I am privileged to have Callie Richards in the studio with me for an interview about the new book she's starring in called, 'Now and Forever 1, a Love Story'. Welcome Callie..."
"Thank you...what did you say your name was?"
"First question, Callie. What is your favorite sexual position
"What? I didn't think you were going to ask those kind of
questions. Uh...Jean didn't say anything about this...well,
let’s see *blushes*, that’s a very personal question. Do I
have to…where’s Jean? Do I…okay, just this one, all right?
I guess my answer would be…umm, in bed?"
"What your favorite part of Mac's body?"
"Hey, what kind of interview is this? I thought I was
hawking the book Jean wrote about us? She said this would
be easy. She lied! No fair…but…now that you ask…I
suppose his chest would be right up there. But that’s it! No
more personal questions!"
"When did you know you wanted to sleep with him
"Wait a minute! I just said no more of these types of
questions!" *gets up*
"Okay, okay – different question. When did you know you were in love with him?"
" Pretty fast. Like almost the first day at work when he held
my hand instead of shaking it. He was…he
was…just…*blushes again*, overpowering.
"Mac’s a jealous guy, isn’t he? How do you feel about
"Just a minute, here. I thought this interview was going to
be about the drug gang. Where’s that double-crosser, Jean?
I’m going to strangle her! Okay…I know I promised. Mac is
pretty jealous and I don’t mind. *blushes again* He loves
me, ya know? So it’s okay."
"You blush a lot, don’t you? Why?"
" I guess I do. *blushes AGAIN*, maybe because I’m shy
and a very private person. Jean knows that, so why did she
arrange this interview? She's gonna get it."
"Only three more questions to go. Did you know Jonesy
picked you out so that Mac would fall in love with you?"
"Well you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to see she kept
pushing us together. Of course Mac missed it…but I knew.
She kept assigning me to his projects and grinning like a
schoolgirl when Mac showed any interest in me. It was
pretty obvious, but I didn’t mind. She was right."
"So you knew Mac…fancied…you?
"Fancied? What kind of word is that? Did Jean tell you to
use that? Tell her to get a thesaurus, will you? Please. Of
course I knew he…uh…liked me. He kept looking down
my blouse and pretending not to *giggles*, men are so silly
that way. They honestly think we don’t notice! Not just that.
He was nice to me…extra nice to me, right from the start."So his being nice to you won your heart?"
"Not just that…the fact that he’s a hunk didn’t hurt. I
mean…I’m not immune to his good looks. Really, he’s
a…turn-on…kind of…at least for me. *blushes again*. But
it was…a bunch of things…made me fall in love with him."
"How long after you knew him did you sleep with him?"
"I told you that was enough with those personal questions!
JEAN! JEAN! Come out here!You set me up…never told
me the questions were going to be so…so probing…so
personal *smacks Jean in the upper arm*. I’m out of here
and don’t ever ask me to do an interview again. Sell your
own damn book. As for you…*turns to the interviewer*,
Don’t you think about anything but sex? *gets up, puts on
her sweater and walks out the door*.
*Calls after retreating Callie*
"Thank you, Callie! That was Callie Richards, heroine of “Now and Forever 1, a Love Story by Jean Joachim.”
