The Merworld Water Wars: Meet Trey Campbell, The Guy Normal

This week, my nosy little reader-loves, we have the only guy Normal in Saxet Shores. He’s been called a rebel with a sharp tongue and an even sharper mind. Of course, there are many titillating tidbits I’d love to ask him, but we are restricted by higher powers in what topics we can explore. In future interviews, I hope to unearth some of the more scandalously revealing topics. But don’t fret—I intend to dig up some deeply buried bones for y’all to gnaw on.

Trey, thanks so much for being here today [Dear Mother of Poseidon, he is a looker…just observe the way his black tee hugs his muscles. Ooh, puddle-poo! Must remember this stupid Sandblastwriter records my every thought. Focus on the questions. Focus on the questions. Focus on—those eyes! Darn.]

Trey [leaning back in his chair, smirking]: No problem, Clarissa. Thanks for having me. Nice eyes you've got, there.

Oh [giggles idiotically…really, can you not keep it together?] thank you. Well [clears throat in obvious fashion] how do you like being the only guy of the group?

Trey: Every guy’s dream…except Meeks isn’t exactly affectionate, you never know when Polls is going to attack you—be it in demon form or with her sword-for-a-tongue—and Marina is my best friend. So, yeah, it’s great, but sort of limiting, if you know what I mean.

But you did briefly date Marina. What happened there?

Trey: Nothing happened. No drama, no heartbreaks. I love her—she’s my best friend. But we both agree we’re better as friends. Not that I wouldn’t go, you know, wherever she’d let me go [winking]. Hell, I’ve told her as much. Aw, she’s gonna kill me for saying that. [chuckles, though there is a twinge of concern in his eyes]. In all seriousness, she found what was missing with us in someone else. [tightening jaw and shifting in seat]

You mean Troy Tombolo. Do I sense disapproval?

Trey [shrugging]: Disapproval. Discontent. Don’t trust the guy. Simple as.

Why don’t you trust him?

Trey: Let’s just say he’s given me every reason in the world not to trust him, especially when it comes to the heart of my best friend.

Are you saying you think Marina should reconsider her relationship with Troy?!

Trey: I think she should be careful. She can take care of herself, I know that. It’s just…the heart can sometimes muddy-up the brain and mute that gut instinct. Not really a problem, since I’ll always have my keen eye and instinct on him. To be fair, I do believe he loves her. He just, uh, has some pretty dark stuff he needs to work on.

Well, that’s certainly true of every breathing creature, to some extent. Let’s talk about Ophelia. Did you two ever actually date?

Trey: Nah. She was dating Earl at the time.

Ah, yes, Earl was the other guy Normal. He wasn’t in Saxet Shores very long, as I recall. What happened to him?

Trey: Uh…he’s hooked up…elsewhere.

That must have been crushing for Ophelia.

Trey: You have no idea.

Maybe now that you and Ophelia are back from your little excursions, you two can give it a try?

Trey [smiling]: Think that window has come and gone. [his cheeks suddenly blushed]

Oh, do I sense there’s someone else on your radar?

Trey: Safe to say, yeah…[Clarissa’s practically drooling to know the scoop; she may fall off her seat]…and no, I’m not going to answer any more questions about who’s lighting up my radar.

At least tell us if you are on this person’s radar…

Trey: Think I am, yeah.

Final thoughts on being the only guy of the Normals?

Trey: I’m the center of attention by default; I’ve always had first date dibs; and when all else fails, I get a free pass to playing the overprotective big brother. All in all…it doesn’t suck.

Join us next time when Trey talks all about his special intuitive power…and all the untold secrets he has uncovered! 

NOTE: Once again, we have massive, out-of-place gaps that don't show up on either the 'compose' page or the preview. Not sure why it happens on some posts and not others. I'm so sorry I'm not more tech-savvy. The savvy escapes me...I'm minus the savvy. :/
