Guest Post: 

The Age of Alandria Series by Morgan Wylie 

My main character in The Age of Alandria series, Kaeleigh, would like to share—read “Tell All”—about her best friends Finn and Chel... 

Kaeleigh: “Hmm, let’s see what can I tell you about Finn and Chel? Ooo they are not going to be very happy with me. Ok, well Chel probably won’t care actually, but Finn will be pissed! I hate it when he’s mad at me, but you won’t tell right?   

Ok well, first, you should know I don’t normally “dish” on my friends but this is a special circumstance—I mean, you are all “book people” right? Of course you are ;)   So here we go: 

1.  Finn once tried gel in his hair because he overheard some girls at school mention this other guy’s hair and how ‘cute it was’. LOL, I guess he thought he’d give it a try, but he used too much and it looked horribly greasy even after he washed it. He hasn’t tried it or let us talk about it since.  

2.  As you may know, my best friend Chel is an artist. She also has quite a few tattoos. Well, she was seeing this guy (not Samuel FYI) that she thought she was in love with (she wasn’t, I tried to tell her that before the “incident”) so... yeah you know where this is going... she had his name tattooed (I’m not telling where). It was nice she designed it herself. Well, not long after, she caught him cheating on her. Yikes! So not only did she have it altered so you couldn’t read his name, she had a different tat of his name done... on the bottom of her foot! She said it was so she could walk, dance, run, stomp (you get the idea) all over Bryce (that was his name). 

3.  Finn snores. 

4.  Actually, Chel snores too... LOUD! (sorry Chel, it’s true). I am so getting in trouble for this! 

5.  Finn doesn’t eat any kind of junk food, except pizza... because who can resist pizza? And I’m not sure pizza is even considered a “junk food”.  I sure don’t think it is.  

6.  Finn always sends me “anonymous” flowers, not on my birthday (my birthday is a rough guess anyway), but on the day I went to live with Chel and her parents. He doesn’t ever acknowledge that it happens, but I know it’s him. He’s the only one who remembers something small like a date that is important to me.  He won’t deny it, he just doesn’t make a big deal about it because he knows I don’t like big deals to be made for me.

7.  One of Chel’s favorite movies is Anne of Green Gables and anything Jane Austen related. I think they appeal to the hopeless romantic in her that not too many people get to see. But at least she likes to watch Star Trek with me. 

8.  Finn’s favorite movie is Royal Tenenbaums and most Wes Anderson films. I don’t know, something about how he relates to Richie Tenenbaum—they both just seem moody to me (he knows I feel this way).  

9.  Chel’s a vegetarian... or maybe she’s a vegan now, she switches. And from what I understand, would mean that if she can switch then she’s not a true vegan but she tries. Definitely vegetarian, but somedays when she is feeling extra sensitive she bursts in saying things like “if it had a face or a mother, not gonna happen”.  I guess what it comes down to is that Chel is extremely sensitive especially when animals are involved and I love that about her. 

10. Finn jumps rope. I know, I know there is nothing that odd about this. Athletes, especially boxers, use this for training etc. That’s not the issue. He found one at a local thrift shop awhile back because the one before it broke... it’s PINK!! LOL, he says I’m just being immature about it. 

*In walks Chel and Finn* 

Finn: “You ARE being immature about that.” *scowls* “Seriously Kae?! What else did you tell them?”  

Kaeleigh: “What? I didn’t say much...” 

Chel: “Kaeleigh!!  I do NOT snore!” 

Finn: *Sigh* Really Chel? That’s what you’re upset about?” 

Chel: *shrugs* “Well, the rest is true.” 

Kaeleigh: “Oddly, sharing stuff was kind of fun, thanks everyone for hanging! I thought I would have had more to share on Chel, but it seems she got outnumbered... wonder what that’s all about. Huh.” 

Finn: “Time to go, Kae” 

*Chel looped her arm through Kaeleigh’s as they walked off with Finn trailing behind them muttering something under his breath
