Companion to Day Five: Interview with Captain Sol

Before I begin, hello to Leo, Nathan, Michael and Nikki!

Like the other interviews, this is conducted by Louise Curtis and plays in real-time (so Louise Curtis magically dropped in on the island pictured at the top of this blog, and ran into a hungry – but rich – Captain Sol).

Interview

I found Sol wandering the twisty streets with a hungry look in her eye and a full look to her pockets. Her hair was slicked back with tar even on land, and the stench was overpowering. She was painfully thin, and wore a permanent mocking smile. The man behind her never took his eyes off her.

She saw me looking, and motioned her companion away with an economical swipe of her arm.

Sol: I didn’t steal nothing from you.

Louise: I didn’t say you did.

Sol: Stop looking at me funny then.

Louise: I — sorry Sol.

Sol: Captain Sol.

Louise: Er. Yes of course – captain. So. . . would you mind telling me a little bit about yourself – where you grew up, perhaps?

Sol: Run away.

Louise: Pardon?

Sol: Run.

Louise: Please don’t look at me like that. I — never mind!

*Louise flees*

*Sol smirks, gestures for Ulandin to follow, and continues on her way*

Louise dressed as Sol (except Sol would use real tar and real blood, and has dark skin)
