In case you missed earlier posts, Beautiful People is a monthly blog linkup hosted by Paperfury and Further Up and Further In. Look for monthly updates on characters from The Afterworld Saga, or on writing topics and challenges author's face.
How did they first meet?
Emma Bennett first set eyes on her Prince Charming, Ben Parker, when she stood in line to rent a jet ski at her aunt's resort on Lake Bell. He busted her checking him out several times as she waited her turn. But it wasn't until soccer practice that Emma actually met Ben and learned his name.
Ben, on the other hand, knew who Emma was long before she moved to Westport, Wisconsin. After all, Ben was an agent for the Afterworld's Bureau of Investigation. Not only did he know Emma, but he loved her.
Emma was lost in a daydream, oogling over Ben. Since Ben was an immortal agent, he was trained to maintain his composure. But when he sees her at a school dance, he does get a little flustered.
How long have they been a couple?
Ben and Emma were together in a few past lives. I won't give away too much details to ruin the series!
How committed are they to each other? Would they break up over a secret or a disagreement? Could stress drive them apart? Would they die for each other?
Wow. Lots of questions all at once! Here goes... Ben is very committed to Emma. He searched for her for decades, after he died in World War II and joined the Bureau. He didn't actually find Emma until decades later. But Emma was a human and no longer remembered Ben and their lives together. Ben needs to win her heart the old fashioned way, and if he does, would anything drive them apart? You'll have to check out Aftermath to see!
List 5 "food quirks" they know about each other.
For starters, Emma likes Mentos mints, but not Altoids. Ben prefers cinnamon flavored Altoids. He also avoids pepper.
Does anyone disapprove of their relationship?
No one disapproves... well, not really. But when Ben is too busy with his real job of being an immortal agent, Lucas Crandon sneaks in, spending too much time with Emma. In the end, who will she choose?
What would be an ideal date?
Ben and Emma's first date in their last life together was a movie, followed by an ice cream soda. Today, they'd probably spend the afternoon on Lake Bell jet skiing.
