Jude VandimonBoy or girl?
Mya: She meant to say girl, folks really.
Jude: Shut up.
Mercury: Oh please, would you two knock it off.
Jude: She started it.
Mya: Well you do act like one sometimes.
Mercury: Can it, these folks could care less. Let them read this in peace. Geeze!How old are you?
Jude: 13What do you think your life expectancy is?
Mercury: Um, gosh, that is a pretty personal question to ask. Well if the Dynasty has their way, I will be dead by tomorrow.
Mya: Mercury, I wish you would not say such things. She is going to live a long time people, as will I.
Jude: Me too.What's your height?
Mercury: Ah I think I was 5"3" last time I checked.
Mya: I am 5"4"
Jude: I think I am 5"6".
Mya: What in heals? You are as tall as me, shorty.
Jude: No I am not. I grew two inches this past Fall, so meh.
Mercury: He is a little taller then when I first met him.
Mya: Okay, if you say so. *rolls eyes*What is your job?
Mercury: to save the world... I think.
Mya: Ha, ha! It sounds funny when you say it like that, but okay. Yeah, me too and to pick on Jude as much as I can.
Jude: I think you have filled your quota. No, girls, I think they mean like chores and stuff. My job is to clean out the attic in Caperwhite Castle.
Mercury: Oh, well then my job is to figure out that message and to archive the books in the library of Caperwhite Castle. All 20,000 of them, plus or minus. Mya tell them what your job is. *Mercury smirks and nudges her in the side*
Mya: I would rather not.
Jude: But it is a very important job... *Jude snickers* Mother gave it exclusively to you.
Mya: Shut up.
Mercury: Fine I will tell them, she has to...
Mya: Perform custodial services to all the facilities in Caperwhite Castle.
Jude: That is such a lovely way of saying you have to clean out all the bathrooms dear sister. Every toilet, sink, tub and tile. How did you get that job? Oh yes, I remember mother caught you trying to convince the pixies to make extra Pixie Pollen for you, so you could, "experiment."
Mya: Jude, you better shut up or I will show you the result of one of my experiments... and in the end Mercury can call you Judy!
Jude: I dare...
Mercury: Jude! Think before you speak. Stop this. I am sorry I brought it up. Okay you were asking us questions.What is your favorite colour?
Mercury: red, sometimes purple... depends
Jude: blackWhat's your favorite food?
Mercury: cheese pizza
Mya: what is pizza?
Mercury: Um flat bred, smothered in tomato sauce, and loaded with cheese. Very greasy. Very forbidden by my mother.
Mya: Oh sounds good... I think. My favorite food would be potatoes.
Jude: PeasWhat's your favorite ice cream flavor?
Mya: What is chocolate?
Mercury: sweet nectar of the gods... no, it comes from cocoa beans, and is mixed with sugar and stuff, very decadent. It is brown and melts in your mouth and makes you happy.
Jude: She means Brunciel, like the stuff that comes from the country of Knorr.
Mya: Ohhhhhhhh... yes, that is a good flavor, but with mint. How interesting. My favorite flavor would be banana.
Jude: It would be. Mine is blackberry with troll mix.
Mercury: You mean trail mix, right?
Jude: No, who would want to eat a trail? I meant troll mix. It is not what you think. Troll mix has fruits, nuts and butterfluff mixed in it. Trolls love butterfluff.
Mya: And apparently so do you, so can I call you a troll now?
Jude: Only if I can call you a Chimp.
Mercury: *sign* It will never end if you let them continue. Next question.Have you killed anyone?
Mercury: technically, no.
Jude: yes.Do you hate anyone?
Mercury: Hate is a strong word, I would prefer to say I despise them greatly.
Mya: No, I can say I hate this person... but I am not naming names...
Jude: There is someone I really dislike, yes, but I am not naming names either...
Mercury: Is it who I think it is?
Mya: That depends, are they callous and self-centered?
Jude: A blotch on Fae society?
Mercury: I do not know her very well, but yes then I know who you are talking about. Next question.Have any secrets?
Mercury: One or two.
Mya: I am not telling.
Jude: Yeah, a few.
Mya: Like what?
Jude: If they are secrets and I told you, they would not be secrets anymore, would they?
Mya: No, but what are you keeping locked up in that Jude head of yours.
Jude: None of your business.
Mya: I will be the judge of that, Jude. I will find out. One day when you least expect it, I will have a peek in and discover whatever it is you are hiding in there.
Jude: Good luck. And if you try to read my mind again I will tell mom. Then she will have you cleaning out the cellar beneath the stables... with all the bats, and the spiders, and the bugs!
Mya: Fine. Next question.Do you love anyone?
Mercury: no comment.
Mya: Yes, his name is Korbin.
Jude: Hee, hee. Does he know?
Mya: Well I should hope so, we have been seeing each other for a while now.
Jude: Since when!
Mercury: About a week after we got back from the Phabian Mountains. I thought you knew.
Jude: NO, I DID NOT KNOW. DOES MOTHER? HE IS TWO YEARS OLDER THEN YOU.
Mya: Clam down Judy, I know that. Mother knows that, so does Father, and they are fine with it.
Jude: Well I am not fine with it. He is my friend. My pal. My buddy.
Mya: Then you should be fine with it then.
Mercury: Jude, does she have to ask your permission or something?
Jude: Well I would like to be informed at least.
Mya: You were informed, you just chose not to listen Troll.
Mercury: Weirdos! Get over it you two.What do you do to relax?
Mercury: Listen to music or read.
Mya: I look up exotic places around the world.
Jude: I like to play flight games and a sport that the Author of the book will not let me talk about at the moment because she wants to copyright it in the next book.
Mercury: Who is the Author, what are you talking about Jude?
Mya: Yeah, are you talking about yourself in the third person again?
Jude: No. Next question.Now what are you going to do?
Mercury: Figure out this message thing to see if it helps my people.
Mya: *snicker* You are so noble. *snicker* No, really, she is people. She is working really hard on it too. I am currently trying to keep Mother out of too much trouble when it comes to fussing over the castle maintenance and keep Father sane as she drives us all nuts by it. Oh and I am helping him rebuild the shop.
Jude: I am helping Father with the shop too, and trying to make leader of my team for that thing I mentioned before that I can't talk about yet.
