This is Socallucyfan, coming to you live from Stella’s living room, with a special Blogiversary update. Even though the anniversary date has past, I still wanted to do something special. To sort of say thank you for all of your likes, and comments and support. And to, of course, celebrate the entire Charming family. It still blows me away that people actually want to read my chapters. So, thank you to all of you!!
But I am not the only one who would like to say thank you. With me today I have Stella, Brandon, Cindy, Ryan, April, May, and June. Thanks for joining me today y’all.
Cindy: It is our pleasure. We are all so happy to be here.
June: If this is a party, then where’s the booze?
We’ll get to that later, June. But right now we have other things to attend to. The reason I gathered you all here today is that a few of our wonderful readers have some questions that they have been dying to know. These questions can get pretty personal, so make sure that you don’t hold anything back!
Let’s get started with Cindy & Ryan. Loladiamond01 asks, “why did you not have anymore children after Stella? Was losing, in a way, one child too much for you.”
Ryan: Yes, loladiamond01. You hit the nail right on the head. Losing Stella was the hardest thing we have ever been through.
Cindy: I couldn’t let what happen to Stella happen to another child. It wouldn’t be fair to that child, and we just couldn’t go through that again.
Brandon, this next question is for you. How weird does it feel to live in one house with the girl that you are in love with?
Brandon: Not going to lie, it can get pretty awkward. I think that the worst times are when we are just sitting here hanging out in the living room. Stella would be curled up in the chair, reading one of her books for school. Her green eyes can get so intense, that it takes all of my energy not to throw the book on the floor and kiss her passionately. But, as far as I know Stella wants to remain “Just Friends” so I have to respect that. It is really up to her to make the first move.
I never fear that my love will be for not. Stella has to realize things in her own time, and in her own way. One good thing about living together is that when Stella does realize that she loves me, I won’t be too far away.
Okay Stella. This is almost the same question for you. What is with this love-hate relationship with Brandon? Why can’t you just let your fears go?
Stella: I wouldn’t necessarily call my relationship with Brandon “love-hate”, because I never hated him (even after he sold me out to his mother). I would call it more of a “hot-cold” type of relationship. I realize that that doesn’t sound any better, but I just have a really hard time trusting people.
I always knew that Aunt April, Aunt May, and Aunt June were keeping things from me. And so I had a hard time trusting them. I felt completely abandoned by my parents, and I still don’t know how to open up to them. Brandon says that he loves me, but he also did nothing to stop me from pricking my finger on that stupid spinning wheel. How do I know that he won’t hurt me again? Or what else are my aunts keeping from me? Or what is going to stop Cindy & Ryan from leaving me again?
June: Umm, I could definitely use that drink right about now.
Well, don’t go too far, because the next question is for the three of you. April, May, and June loladiamond01 also asks, “was raising Stella fun for you? Wasn’t it stressful keeping the truth about her parents away from Stella? And, what do you think of Stella & Brandon’s relationship?”
April: I guess I will take the first part. At first we were all a bit nervous. None of us had any experience with raising a toddler. Let alone one that had an evil witch looking for her. But I speak for all of us when I say that I couldn’t imagine a life without Stella. She was an absolute joy to raise.
May: Okay, I will take the second part. It was definitely stressful keeping things from Stella, especially as she got older and started asking more questions. As much as we hated to lie, it was all to keep her safe.
June: Yay, my turn!! Yes, I have to say that I agree with the rest of you!! I don’t know why it is taking these two so damn long to realize that they love each other!!
I think that is all the time that we have for this part. I didn’t plan on having a two part celebration, but I want to make sure we get to everyone’s questions. I can still take a few more questions, just in case there was anything you wanted to know about any of these characters.
Part 2 should be out soon. And you don’t want to miss it. I have more questions for these guys, plus I have some very special guests stopping by. And as always have a great day, or night depending on when you are reading this!
