HEADLINE: Interview with Lilith Mercury, Werewolf Hunter

The Blue Notes Interview with Lilith Mercury, Werewolf Hunter

SB: I understand that you're a Hunter, but you're also a woman. How do you differentiate the two?

*Lilith sits back and crosses her legs, considering SB for a moment before responding*

LM: It's never been a problem for me, really. I know that may sound strange, but I didn't stop being a woman when I became a Hunter. I'm just a woman who happens to track down rogue werewolves. It's a strange occupation, I'll admit ... but I still like to shop for lingerie.

Dating has its issues, of course. But that's just life.

SB: **Smiling and nodding as if I can relate.** Do you believe in happily ever after?

LM: Somewhere deep down, I think I do. I've had my heart broken more than once ... it makes trust difficult.

SB: Do you have any other hobbies?

*Lilith laughs*

LM: Sure. I mean, a girl can't cut up werewolves every day, right? I'm also an artist. I love to paint and write poetry. I also keep a sketchbook in my room for the nights I just can't sleep. Oh, and gardening. As you can tell, I like to stay busy. If I didn't have hobbies, I think I might go crazy sometimes. You can only see so much death before you need a bit of life to balance things out. I guess that's why I like to create things, like art, or watch my roses grow.

SB: Speaking of men...oh, we weren't speaking of men...well, we should be. **I chuckle to keep the mood light.** Speaking of men, what's the deal with this current love triangle you're in? What draws you to Alfred? And how does this affect how you feel about Marco?

*Lilith raises one eyebrow as she answers*

LM: Yikes. You're going for my throat. But you're right, we might as well be speaking of men, because I sure as hell was thinking about them. I don't know if I'd call my situation a love triangle exactly, but it certainly is complicated.

I'll be honest with you, I am in love with Alfred. I always have been in one way or another. I'm drawn to his strength. He's been a part of my life for so long ... I can hardly remember what it was like to not have him around. He's my friend, and partner ... but more than that, he's someone I can trust.

*Lilith sighs heavily before answering the next part of the question*

Marco ... I really wish I could tell you more about my feelings for him, but I haven't figured it out yet myself. He's not who I thought he was. I was led to believe that he was my enemy ... but when I'm near him, when I listen to him talk ... the pieces just don't quite fit. He's compassionate and kind. I never expected that. I also never expected to feel ... whatever the hell it is that I feel when I'm near him.

SB: How does Alfred feel about you being away with Marco? Or does he know you're away with Marco?

LM: Are you kidding me? If he knew he would kill him. And NO, I'm not going to tell him.

SB: **Hmmm, she doesn’t realize I didn’t say these questions were off the record. I smile.** Okay, here's my final question: Should we expect sparks to fly on the next full moon?

*Lilith rises to leave the room as she answers*

LM: Not unless they're coming out of the end of Alfred's gun. Are we done here?

SB: Well, I…I guess we are.

**Lilith has already left the room**

SB: Tune in next week when I’ll have another exclusive interview with a jaguar shifter whose trip to the jungle may just start another world war!
