Character Interview: Trey Rogers & Raegyn Lee

Raegyn is one of the two POV characters in Unstoppable, one of the books I’m working on with Allie. She’s quiet and she has stealth/invisibility powers. Trey is her love interest/boyfriend (obviously). He’s organized, great at planning, sweetly protective, and has telekinesis. Enjoy their interview!

 


Trey: *comes in and takes a seat*

Raegyn: *comes in behind him, hands wrapped up in her sleeves, looking like she really doesn’t want to be there*

Trey: *smiles reassuringly at Raegyn as she sits down*

Raegyn: *gives an almost-half-smile back*

Interviewer: Hello. How are you today?

Raegyn: Fine.

Trey: I’m all right. *smiles a bit*

Interviewer: Are you ready to get started?

Trey: *nods*

Raegyn: *shrugs*

Interviewer: How long have you two known each other?

Trey: About five years.

Interviewer: How did you meet?

Trey: *glances at Raegyn and chuckles awkwardly*

Raegyn: *shakes her head at the interviewer*

Trey: *rubs the back of his neck* We’d… really rather not say.

Interviewer: All right… Did you like each other when you first met?

Raegyn: I did.

Trey: *looks at her in mild surprise* Really? *back to interviewer* I didn’t really get to know her much early on. We were both pretty quiet and withdrawn due to… circumstances. I didn’t dislike her or anything, but I didn’t have romantic feelings for her or anything right away.

Interviewer: What’s your favorite thing about each other?

Trey: Raegyn is really compassionate and really smart. *smiles at her* Most don’t guess it because she doesn’t show it often, but she is.

Raegyn: *glances down at her hands as a blush rises to her cheeks* Trey is really sweet and protective. He’s not overbearing or overly protective, but he’s always ready to help protect me or any of the other Unstoppables who need it. *smiles softly*

Interviewer: What is your favorite thing to do together?

Raegyn: Stargaze.

Trey: *points at her* What she said. She beat me to it. *grins*

Raegyn: *smiles* We’re outside the majority of nights, and Trey and I like to take advantage of it and stargaze together.

Interviewer: That sounds like a nice bright spot to keep you going.

Raegyn and Trey: *nod*

Interviewer: How would each of you describe your relationship?

Trey: *takes a minute* Just… loving, I think. Either of us would be willing to do anything for the other–within reason, of course.

Raegyn: *nods*

Interviewer: What book or movie would you end up with two copies of if you got married?

Trey: It’s a really old book, from back in the Old World, The Door Within by Wayne Thomas Batson. We both really love that book. *turns to her* What movie would you say?

Raegyn: You already know. Another Old World classic. My copy barely works at this point. The Princess Bride.

Interviewer: Might not have two copies for very long after you get married, huh? *chuckles*

Raegyn: If we get that far. *wry smile*

Trey: We will. *smiles at her*

Interviewer: What are your love languages, and how do you show affection to each other?

Trey: Mine is quality time. Like we said, we often spend time stargazing, I’ll have my arm around her shoulders or her waist. Sometimes I give her hugs or forehead kisses to comfort her in or after a stressful situation.

Raegyn: *nods* Mine is touch. I just try to be with him as much as possible and be less of a worrywart than I tend to be. *chuckles ruefully*

Interviewer: What’s your favorite memory together?

Trey: *exchanges a glance with Raegyn* Well, there’s a clear option, but it’s not very romantic.

Interviewer: Let’s hear it anyway. If you’re willing to share.

Raegyn: We probably shouldn’t. *offers an apologetic smile*

Interviewer: All right. What’s the most embarrassing story you have together?

Trey: I can’t think of one. *turns to Raegyn* Can you?

Raegyn: *shakes her head*

Trey: *back to the interviewer* Mostly we’re too busy to be embarrassed often.

Interviewer: *chuckles* If you could do one thing for your partner, what would it be?

Trey: I’d get her somewhere safe. For good.

Raegyn: I’d get him home to his family.

Interviewer: What are some of your shared hobbies?

Raegyn: Reading and stargazing. There’s not time for much else.

Trey: *nods*

Interviewer: Where is your favorite place to go, explore, or hang out together?

Raegyn: Anywhere we have a chance to stop and breathe.

Interviewer: What is your favorite meal to eat together?

Trey: Any of them.

Interviewer: For both of you, who was your first boyfriend or girlfriend?

Trey: Raegyn.

Raegyn: *nods* Trey. Neither of us exactly got normal teenage years.

Trey: *to Raegyn* But I’m kind of all right with that, assuming we get out of it all right. If it weren’t for what happened, we would have never met. *smiles*

Raegyn: *attempts to smile* I guess.

Interviewer: That was the last question. Thank you both for your time. *smiles* Have a good day.

Trey: *gets up and shakes the interviewer’s hand before leaving*

Raegyn: *just offers a small smile before following*
