ADORA SMUTZ INTERVIEWS TUNNEY NICHOLS, HERO OF “THE RENOVATED HEART”.
Adora: Hi, Tunney. Wow, you were pretty sexy in “The Renovated Heart”.
Tunney: *blushes*, thanks, Adora.
Adora: Tell me, were you really going to turn down Kit when you thought she was married?
Tunney: Absolutely. To quote myself in the book, “I don’t sleep with married women”.
Adora: But you wanted to, didn’t you?
Tunney: *blushes again*, I’m a guy, Adora. You know guys…right?
Adora: What are you implying? I sleep around? Who have you been talking to? Danny Maine from Now and Forever 2? That Danny’s got a big mouth, doesn’t he…along with other assets. *g* Now where was I? Oh, yes, I do know some guys will sleep with anything that walks.
Tunney: Not me! I’m choosy.
Adora: So what was it about Kit that lured you in?
Tunney: Everything! She was
gorgeous, funny and smart…the total package.
Adora: Package, huh? I thought that meant…
Tunney: I MEAN, everything…everything I’ve always wanted in a woman.
Adora: How do I compare?
Adora: Come on, Tunney, don’t play coy with me. I see you staring at my chest. Want to know my bra size?
Adora: I like to be direct with a man. Are you busy after the interview?
Tunney: Adora…I thought this was about Kit and me. She’s meeting me here…and I don’t think.
Adora: Don’t think, Tunney. Kiss me now and we’ll deal with Kit later.
Tunney: (rising from his chair): I don’t think…Adora, this isn’t a good…
Tunney: (moving toward the door): Uh…this has been great, Adora, uh…truly…but I’m outta here. *slips out the door*
Adora: Coward! The cute ones from Jean’s books always leave too soon. *sighs*. I’ll have to get her to write me in. *calls out*, Jean! Jean! Where are you? Put me in the next book or no more interviews! Let me tell you what I want the hero to look like…let’s see Mac Caldwell’s eyes, Tunney’s hair…Danny’s…oh my. I can’t go there can I? *blushes* I’ll get back to you.
