Here we are, continuing with the I'm Hearing Voices blogfest (which has been soooo very fun already!). Today's task is as follows:
February 8th - Wednesday - Dialogue Introduction: Have two characters introduce each other using only dialogue—no backstory, no internalization, just dialogue between the two. Max 250 words.
My interview takes place between Mason and an unnamed "banshee" woman he meets fairly early on in the story.
Mason: Yo, girly, you got a minute?
Mason: Okay then. Look, uh, you see all these people staring at us? You’re meant to introduce me, and then I can introduce you. It’s just a thing...know what I’m sayin’?
Mason: Right. Well ...hey everyone. My name’s...no wait, that’s her job. MY job is to introduce her. And I don’t know her name, but I can tell you she’s a banshee. And I always thought those freaks were all deadly and, like, hated my guts. But lately I’m getting the sneaking suspicion there’s more to them than meets the eye. I’m starting to think that we’ve all been deceived and they’re some seriously convenient scapegoats. Basically, my world’s being tipped upside down and I’m finding...hey wait, I’m meant to talk about her, not me. And so... this here is a banshee. She looks kind of evil, right? Dirty, messed up, with tangled hair and stuff. Well, she’s not so much evil as...hard done by.
Okay! I think we’re done here, right? Your turn, darlin’—tell these folks a little bit about me.
Mason: And on that note...I don’t really know where we can go from here, so...
Banshee: AHHHHHEM! Is Mason...is smart...is mean... Is listening. Mason good. There. Okay?
Mason: Hey, at this stage I’ll take anything. So yeah, I think we’re okay. Cheers darlin’.
