Kayla is the main character from one of my favorite books, Secrets of the Mind, and as such I’m excited to have her here, even if she is being a bit on the quiet side for her.
Mind sharing with everyone how old you are?
I am seventeen and will be eighteen in a few months time.
Would you mind sharing a bit about your family?
I lived with my foster parents since I was eight. I was found not far from a car wreak. My mom died in the crash and my foster parents were the ones who found me.
A few months ago my Grandmother came to claim me. I didn’t know I had any relatives has I have no memory of my past. My grandmother is a cold lady with a steel heart.
How’s you relationship with your parents?
I can’t remember my Mother and know nothing about my father.
My foster parents on the other hand are great. Clara as always got nice things to say and has learned me to treat others the way I would like to be treated. She can see light in the darkest of people.
David is a bit of a goofball and loves to joke and act around.
What about your siblings? Do you get along?
I don’t believe I have any siblings.
How would you describe your childhood, what you can remember of it anyway?
I can’t remember much, but the time I spent with Clara and David, my childhood was a happy one where I wished for nothing.
What’s you greatest fear?
The red eyes that haunt my dreams and spiders. I hate spiders. They are creepy and I just don’t like them.
What do you hate most about yourself?
I don’t like the fact that my mind won’t let me remember. There is so much I want to know. My mind is the key to that information.
What is your greatest strength?
I am not sure. I think my greatest strength is I am not a guidable person unless it is right in front of me I won’t believe in the unbelievable.
Do you have a weakness?
Yes, my family Clara and David are my weakness I am afraid my new life will hurt them.
Have you traveled? If so, what’s your favorite place?
I was never one for traveling. I hated new places and strange faces.
Is there something from the past that haunts you, keeps you awake at night?
My nightmares keep me up at night. Each night I am surrounded by demons with red eyes. Each time a beautiful woman is there protecting me. With every new dream she changes. Her hair and eyes change color. I call her my guardian angel. My light within the darkness that clouds my mind.
What is your biggest secret?
I don’t have a secret. Well, I didn’t until I was told I was a witch and descended from a powerful blood line. I am still having trouble believing that though.
What’s your favorite animal and why?
My favorite animals are horses. I feel free when I ride them and love the feel of the wind in my hair. At Enchanted Falls they have many mythical horses.
Sounds like somewhere I’d like to go, other than the whole barrier to keep you in thing… Well, that’s all Kayla has time for before her lessons, maybe I can catch you again. Bye!
