Character Interview & Giveaway - Creatura by Nely Cab ** Lets chat with David, Isis, Alezzander and Nyx.

Id like to Welcome Isis, David , Nyx and Alezzander to Page Flipperz today !! Creatura is one of my favourite reads of 2012 and I thought Id get a few of our favourite characters together to answer a few questions .. Ive just baked a wonderful batch of Chocolate Chip Biscuits for everyone  grab a cookie and sit back and relax and enjoy the interview . This is going to be fun !!!!

I walk into the room - David and Isis are nicely placed on the love seat snuggled together.   Alezzander and Nyx are seated side by side on different chairs. Time to start my interview..

Welcome all to Page Flipperz! Today I have a few questions I’d love to ask.

NYX: Before the interview begins, Ms. Whittaker, let me speak for all of us, and thank you for having us as your guests.

Kat: Thank you Nyx its wonderful that you all could make it today. Now to start out interview  Please Tell me your favourite movie of all time, and since all the immortals have lived such a long time do tell of you old time favourite ! Isis just let me know your all time favourite !

ALEZZANDER: Ms. Whittaker, with due respect, I have no time to indulge in film viewing.

NYX: (rolls her eyes) His favorites are Charlie Chaplain movies. My favorites are these new romantic comedies. That Bridget Jones girl is a slap on the knee! I do, however, hold all silent films dear to my heart.

ISIS: I have three favorite movies: “Sixteen Candles,” “Gone with the Wind,” and “Silence of the Lambs.”

ALEZZANDER: “Silence of the Lambs” is a hideous film, made for the blood thirsty and people with homicidal tendencies.

** Kat hides behind her snicker, whilst Nyx rolls her eyes **
DAVID: I thought you hadn’t time to watch films, Father?

ALEZZANDER: (crossing his arms and sighing) I saw previews.

DAVID: (unconvinced) Right. My favorites change with time. At the moment, some of my favorites are foreign films: “Pan’s Labyrinth,” “Life is Beautiful,” and the 2009 version of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.”

** I can imagine that Romeo and Juliet would be a favourite among us ? David ?

DAVID: Oh yes. I’ve forgotten to mention that one, as well.

** David you write beautiful poetry please tell us how you became so clever and romantic lol and upon meeting Isis your first impression.

DAVID: I sincerely thank you for the compliment. I began to fiddle with poetry whence my private lessons in literature began. The words seemed to fall freely on paper and write themselves. Sir Shakespeare was an integral part in my scholastic life. His works have endured centuries, which speaks highly of how suitable a mentor he was to me.

The first time I saw Isis… (smiles and looks at Isis) I thought the heavens had misplaced an angel.

This question can apply to Nyx and Alexxander as well... their thoughts on Isis ..

ALEZZANDER: (looks off to the side and remains quiet).

NYX: (Glaring at Alezzander) We love Isis very much. She’s part of this family, isn’t she, my husband?

ALEZZANDER: Yes, of course, part of the family. Next question, if you please?

ISIS: (bothered) Hmmph…

(David puts an arm around Isis and whispers in her ear to comfort her)

**Kat  - sighs **

NYX: (nodding) He sincerely means it.

ISIS: Whatever…

Everyone - ( except Isis) ** Explain to me ** Silent existence of the divine lineage **

ALEZZANDER: I apologize, but we cannot discuss this topic.

DAVID: But Father, we were brought to disclose information for the sake of appeal to our story.

ALEZZANDER: No. That would expose us to the entire world.

NYX: Alezzander…

ALEZZANDER: (Interrupting Nyx) Was I not clear?

(Nyx looks apologetically at the interviewer)

DAVID: Forgive us, Madame. We are not at liberty to answer this question.

ISIS (to David): I told you not to bring him.

** What did you all think of Gabriel having his imaginary friends and how they took over his life ?

ISIS: They were real. He was a victim. I don’t care what anyone else thinks. Gabriel would have never acted that way if those demons hadn’t made him.

DAVID: He was on drugs. Of course he would have.

NYX: Those were no imaginary friends. The Turpis or “Unseen” took advantage of his drugged and weakened state of mind.

** David - you gave up immortality for Isis please let me know how this makes you feel.

ALEZZANDER: (almost inaudible) He should feel like an idiot.

NYX: (speaking through her teeth) The question was directed at David.

DAVID: (turning his attention away from Alezzander and to Isis) I will never regret my decision. I know to whom my heart belongs.

ALEZZANDER (to Nyx): He IS an idiot.

NYX: Shut. It. (turns and smiles at interviewer) Please, continue with the questions, dear.

**Alezzander - You have lived for centuries= anything that you can say that has happened that will leave a mark for life ?

ALEZZANDER: (looking at Isis) Losing a son to morality.

(Isis lowers her head)

DAVID: That was uncalled for, Father. I made the decision, not her.

ALEZZANDER: You made the decision because of her.

(Uncomfortable silence fills the already thick air in the room)

Kat flips through her interview questions to move on ......................

Nyx - you love to cook whats your favourite - your pastries made my mouth water.

NYX: I love to experiment with new recipes that I make up on my own, but desserts are my favorite. I make a delicious Mango tart topped with sweetened crème fraiche and adorned with strawberries and mint leaves.

Isis - You have found out who you are not whom you though u where how does this make you feel ?

ISIS: I feel like I’ll never belong - like an outcast and a freak.

David - If you where to describe Isis as a flower which one would you pick ?

DAVID: Isis is like a Jasmine. She’s small and delicate but her sweet scent can fill the room in an instant.  

Nyx -with your abilities are there any downfalls ?

NYX: Yes. I hate knowing when people are lying to me. I can never bring myself to trust.

Alezzander- Are you like your son an a romantic at heart ?

ALEZZANDER: I am a romantic, as all men should be, but I would never place my family in danger because of it.

DAVID: Please stop torturing her (points to Isis).

ALEZZANDER: It wasn’t my intention. I am merely answering this woman’s question.

NYX: And when this session is over you’ll answer to me, as well.

Isis - When you first saw David he scared you - how does this compare to now meeting him ? Was it love at first site ?

ISIS: I first saw David in my dreams…

ALEZZANDER: (clearing his throat): Ehem…

ISIS: The first time I saw him was (glances at Alezzander warily) … at school?
(Alezzander nods) He was beautiful. I do think it was love at first at first sight, but he did something that made me think he had bad intentions toward me. After we got past that part, I couldn’t stop thinking about him. He was charming and a gentleman.

David - I must say your poems make me giddy and see hearts - do they take you long to write ?  I have read many and I love them all .. ** blushes **

DAVID: Some poems take a very short time – an hour – to write while others are more complex, taking far more time. I have, on more than one occasion, dedicated as much as two days to one poem.

Nyx and Alezzander - how long have you been together ** was it love at first site ? ** David is such a romantic at heart .. maybe it runs in the family ?

NYX: Alezzander, beneath his cold facade, is quite the romantic. He admired me secretly before we met. I remember the first time I ever saw him. I did not think to look at him twice. But he followed me and did not speak when he approached me. He looked at me directly in the eyes and lowered himself to the ground and kissed my feet.

ALEZZANDER (smiling): And I said to her, “Never will I lower myself before any other woman, for there will never be another.”

NYX: (reaching for Alezzander’s hand) And I knew he did not lie.

Alezzander - explain to me what family means ? Even if your family chooses outside your beliefs.

ALEZZANDER: Family are the blood to which one vows loyalty and protection, setting them before anything else, and never compromising their lives

Do any of you play sport ?

DAVID (Raising his hand): Rugby.

ALEZZANDER: Golf and Jiu Jitsu

NYX: I walk… at shopping centers.

ISIS: (shakes her head) Nope.

How does it feel to fly go anywhere you please ? whats your favourite destination to escape to.. Isis if David could take you anywhere where would you go.

NYX: I can’t fly. I don’t have wings.

ALEZZANDER: I have accumulated an exaggerated amount of frequent flyer miles. It feel wonderful to fry free of charge. Anywhere free is my favorite destination.

DAVID: It feels normal. Much like walking. My favorite destination is the porch roof right outside Isis’ bedroom.

ISIS: It’s scary to fly with David. I get dizzy. But if that weren’t the case and I didn’t need oxygen to breathe, I’d like to fly in space and touch the stars.

How do you see the future looking for you all with Isis now discovering what she is.. ? Creatura !

ALEZZANDER: I know not of what you speak. I believe you’ve been misinformed.

DAVID: Creatura do not exist.

NYX: (shrugs) I’ve never heard of that.

Does this scare you to not know what is in store for David (( Nyx and Alezzander ))


Some fun questions for all.

Fav song

DAVID: Too many and varied.

NYX: Gnossienne No. 1 by Eric Satie

ISIS: Anything by Green Day

ALEZZANDER: “Best Day Ever” by Spongebog Squarepants

(everyone turns to look at Alezzander with raised brows)

Fav colour

ISIS: Black

DAVID: Blue and Black

NYX: White and Gold


Last but not least - do you believe in destiny ?

ISIS: (nods) I do.

DAVID: I believe Isis is my destiny.

ALEZZANDER: Of course.

NYX: Yes.

Thanks for stopping by... Kat hands out chocolate chip biscuits for all.

NYX: (takes a bite) Mmmhh.. These are absolutely glorious!

ISIS: Oh, no thanks, I haven’t been feeling too well, lately.

DAVID: Thank you. You’re a wonderful host.

ALEZZANDER: (raises his hand) Thank you, but no.

(Everyone stands from their seat and extends their hand to their host, Ms. Katrina Whittaker)

ISIS: Ms. Whittaker, thank you very much for having us. I hope you’ll continue to follow our story since someone (glares at Alezzander) wouldn’t let us say much.

**Thanks heaps!

DAVID: The pleasure will always be ours, Ms. Whittaker. Thank you again.


If the interview has intrigued you please do check out the wonderful book these wonderful characters come from.

When seventeen year-old Isis Martin is having trouble sleeping
due to perturbing dreams of a horrific growling beast, she decides
to confront her fear. But what Isis discovers is something other
than a menacing entity.

The human-like creature offers Isis assurance that he is not a figment
of her imagination. Unwilling to accept his avowal, Isis sets his words
to contest by asking the entity to prove himself - a dare, he readily welcomes.

It is in her dreams that Isis innocently stumbles upon the silent existence of the divine lineage of those that man has long forgotten.

In a quaint town, deep in south Texas, this story leads Isis onto the path of impermissible love and captivating life-changing truths. Isis Martin's
journey is sure to leave any reader ravenous for more."
