They’re ba-ack! And the topic is a two-fer:
Part one: Describe the antagonist in your novel in 50 words or less.
Part two: What would you say to your antagonist if you met him or her in real life? Post a scene in response to this question in 100 words or less.
Now, in a previous blog chain, I wrote about Shourron I. He’s one of the antagonists, but the story that’s behind him being such turns out to be a bit more convoluted. It’s only proper that I shift the focus to Senna, an employee at KramerMed Pharmaceuticals, the sorta-antagonist of Book 2 – that’s the most I can say without giving spoilers to the rest of the plot.
Ambitious, brilliant, slightly sociopathic Senna Clark. Or so she’s known in KramerMed. She knows a lot, maybe too much. And to those who can sense her, she is a rather disquieting presence. And if anyone avoids her, they’re right to do so.
Part Two. Note: this is set in Book 2, in first person.
I didn’t know what she was reading. But the diagrams gave it away. The stats, the charts, the very pristine, hospital-like layout of the forms.
“It’s not worth it, whatever you’re trying to do,” I said quietly. “It’s just not worth it.”
In retrospect, I realized that Alex and Jason had no idea whom they have actually hired. They saw a manager and an expert coordinator . They had no idea how dangerous she really was. But I knew it.
Senna got up and smiled, a smile that never reached her eyes.
“Don’t worry,” she said. “It is.”
