Raythe says …
I I am very proud to say that we have with us today Kei Wakahisa, the owner of the international juggernaught Black Ocean and one of the stars of our the crime lord yaoi serial story, Ghost: Hong Kong Triad! He’s here for an Ask Me Anything!
KEI (smoothly): I would like to point out that I am not a crime lord. I am a businessman.
RAYTHE (teasing): Some would say there’s not much of a difference!
KEI (cool stare and says nothing).
RAYTHE (shifting uneasily in her interviewer’s chair): Well, let’s get to the point of why we are here, shall we?
RAYTHE (staring down at her notes): We thought at Raythe Reign that it would be fun for people to get to ask one of our characters questions and have those characters answer them … uhm, in character. Three characters? Yeah, okay, THIS is why I need an editor. But anyways, you have been voted as one of the most mysterious of the characters in the stories and we thought that doing an Ask Me Anything with commenters asking the questions would be a really great idea.
KEI (crosses one long leg over another): So these … people will get to ask me questions in the comments of this blog post and I will allegedly answer them in the next one?
RAYTHE (smiling winningly): Exactly!
KEI (looks at the character sheet of himself): I have a question. May I ask it?
RAYTHE (still smiling, but a little worried now as Kei has gone off script again): Sure!
KEI: Why is there a naked picture of me hanging there for everyone to see?
RAYTHE (still smiling, but it looks more pained than anything else): Because … we wanted people to see you?
KEI (cobalt eyes focused on Raythe with laser-like intensity): Naked?
RAYTHE (throws hands up in the hair and interview papers go everywhere): It’s art! Mathia did a great job! You’re beautiful!
KEI (glances at painting): I suppose.
RAYTHE (desperate): We’re not leering at you —
KEI (narrows cobalt eyes and says nothing).
RAYTHE (flustered even more): Right, well, let’s move on again! People can ask Kei whatever they want in the comments. You don’t have to be a Member of the site to join in on the fun, because Kei stars in the first free to read five chapters of Ghost: Hong Kong Triad. You could read those chapters and think of loads of things to ask!
KEI: I might not answer though.
RAYTHE (blinking and tugging at her collar): Uhm, that defeats the purpose though. You get the point of an Ask Me Anything, right?
KEI (smiling now): I must be allowed to keep some secrets.
RAYTHE (sighs): Okay, right. Well, let me give you an example of what you might be asked. There have been Members in the comments of the chapters who feel that Freyr is too immature for you due to his youth and your experience. What do you say in response to those concerned Members?
KEI (cool stare again): They think they know my mind better than me?
RAYTHE (waving hands frantically): It’s not that they don’t like Freyr or you. In fact, they love you and want you to be happy. See? It’s concern!
KEI (smooths one elegant hand down the front of his shirt): I’ll keep their concern in mind.
RAYTHE (wipes sweat off brow): So I believe I’ll leave questions about your love life to the people who aren’t in the same room with you with that arctic stare!
KEI (smiles and says nothing):
RAYTHE: So just to recap, the way this works is that people write their questions for Kei in the comments below then we will close the comments and Kei will answer those questions in the next blog post. (sweats some more when Kei looks at her) Kei will answer some of the questions. The ones he ah wants to. But don’t let that stop you from asking whatever you like. Get intimate! Get dirty! Get creative! (gives Kei a side-eye) Make him sweat like he’s made me! We can’t wait to see what you come up with.
