[Manga Maniac Cafe] Good morning, Olivia! Can you share a typical day in your life?
[Olivia Beckett] Sure. I wake up, usually around eight a.m., and make a chocolate covered strawberry smoothie (DO THIS. It’s DELICIOUS. ½ cup vanilla yogurt, ½ cup fat free milk, ½ cup frozen strawberries, 1.5 TBS dark cocoa powder. Blend. Drink. Rejoice.) Then, if I have morning classes, I go to those. If not, I try to hit the gym or go for a walk or something. In the afternoons, I do homework so that in the evenings I can hang out later on. Did I say drink a pot of coffee throughout the day? If I didn’t, add that in. I love coffee. What else? Usually, one night a week we hit the bar and play beer pong or pool. Lately, I go hoping to run into Bash. Although, I don’t know how much longer I’ll be doing any of those things. My parents are having some…financial issues so school might not be an option next semester.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What three words come to mind when you think of Bash?
[Olivia Beckett] Gorgeous. Troubled. Gorgeous. Wait, did I say that one already? Okay, so the third one would be strong.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What’s his most appealing quality?
[Olivia Beckett] Physically? His mouth. Particularly his lips. They’re perfect. As for his personality, his determination.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What’s irritates you the most about him?
[Olivia Beckett] Probably the same as above. His determination. The same self-discipline that makes him a great boxer and a strong person able to overcome odds and succeed is also the quality that makes him stubborn and set on his course. That course is one that will take him far from Boston…and from me. So, yeah. As much as I admire it, that’s pretty irritating sometimes.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] If you could change one thing you’ve done in your life, what would it be?
[Olivia Beckett] I’d go back to the day my abusive ex, Andy, asked me out and instead of saying yes, I’d kick him in the balls. Hard.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What’s one thing you won’t leave home without?
[Olivia Beckett] Dental floss. I keep it in every purse I own. Nothing worse than having chicken stuck between your teeth and not being able to get it out. Well, I mean, not *nothing* worse. Like, drowning is worse, probably. And being infested by maggots. But no floss is still pretty bad.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you share your dreams for the future in five words or less.
[Olivia Beckett] Me and Bash together forever.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Thank you!
[Olivia Beckett] Thank YOU! It was fun. And try one of those smoothies. You won’t regret it, pinky swear.
