Scarah Screams Out of the Shadows
Gory Gazette: So, Scarah. You’re a scarily quiet one. We’ve been sparking to sit down with you ever since you agreed to this interview!
Scarah: I’ve found that most monsters take what I say as predictions of doom, so it’s easier to just be quiet so no one is confused. But just because I’m quiet doesn’t mean I’m not listening.
Gory Gazette: Tell us more about TSL (Telepathy as a Second Language)?
Scarah: I’ve been taking it for years. It’s helpful for when I want to communicate, but feel like speaking verbally might be taken the wrong way.
Gory Gazette: Can you give us an example of speaking gone bad?
Scarah: OK. One time at fear squad practice I told Cleo that being at the bottom of the pyramid was a lot of pressure for me and I was wondering if I could get closer to the top. Then Toralei hissed at me, concerned I was trying to take control of the squad. Apparently, the top is reserved only for fear squad leadership (who knew?!).
Gory Gazette: Oh. My. Gore.
Scarah: Yeah. It was pretty awkward. Thankfully, I corrected the miscommunication and all is now well.
Gory Gazette: Okay, new topic. We hear a certain guy is very hot on you.
Scarah: Yes, Heath Burns does ask me out a lot. But I always say no.
Gory Gazette: Why?
Scarah: …do you really have to ask?
Gory Gazette: We think Heath means well! Have you read his essay we published last month?
Scarah: Well, yes. It was quite touching.
Gory Gazette: Could love be brewing?
Scarah: To be honest I’m not that concerned about dating right now. I’d rather read a thrilling book.
Gory Gazette: Fair enough.
