Character Interview: Adam Interviews Oliver, Commentary by Jackson from Lynn Kelling’s Novel HUSH (Manse #4)
Adam: Welcome! I’m here with Oliver and Jackson. Oliver, sit your ass down.
Oliver: …he asked politely…
Adam: I’m in charge here. Doing the interviewing. Asking the questions.
Oliver: Yes, Master. Will I be punished if I displease you? Some boot licking, perhaps, or maybe you wanna have at my ass with a cat o’ nine tails?
Adam: I said I’ll be the one asking the questions. clears throat, adjusts himself
Oliver: Saw that.
Adam: Knock it off.
Jackson: leans over to speak directly into the microphone at slightly over a whisper For those trying to keep track at home (may God have mercy on your souls), this is an interview of Oliver Hughes by Adam Buchanan for the purposes of… what are the purposes again?
Adam: I’m working on a project!
Jackson: Ladies and gentlemen, he’s working on a project. A mysterious project he won’t give us any information about. This is Jackson speaking. I’m Oliver’s submissive and reality-checker. Adam and Oliver have been best friends since… let’s say the Bronze Age. They’re each other’s found family and this is what happens when they get bored. Back to the show.
Adam: Thank you, Jackson. Olly, stop touching me there!
Oliver: Don’t like it?
Adam: It tickles.
Jackson: …questions, sir?
Adam: Right, questions. Oliver, what was your first impression of Rune, your newest submissive?
Oliver: Is that what we’re calling him? That’s a little limiting, isn’t it? Well, I guess the impression was mostly a physical one. It was confusing. Lots going on. But I did notice he was hot.
Adam: I’ll pretend to be shocked. So, the impression was basically, “I’d screw him?”
Oliver: Pretty much.
Adam: How long did it take you to realize he’s deaf?
Oliver: Oh yeah, Jay’s heard this one. Can you tell? It was a long time, okay.
Jackson: A loooong time.
Adam: And why was that?
Oliver: points to his dick
Adam: sighs heavily Olly, you’ve really got to give me a little more than that.
Oliver: He’s naturally distracting.
Adam: Really? And you didn’t notice he doesn’t speak, either?
Oliver: He’s a submissive! I thought he was just being obedient!
Adam: And how long did it take you to realize he wasn’t obedient?
Oliver: averts eyes Not long at all, actually.
Oliver: Next question!
Adam: What are some of your favorite qualities that Rune possesses? Non-physical.
Oliver: He’s incapable of bullshit. Doesn’t believe in putting on an act to spare anyone’s feelings, but at the same time, wouldn’t hurt a fly… unless the fly was a bigoted, hateful scumbag actively trying to hurt the innocent. Then, that fly better run scared.
Adam: Do you like that Rune is so intolerant of intolerance?
Jackson: Ooh, good question.
Adam: Thank you, sweetheart.
Oliver: Hmm. I mean, it’s who he is, and I’d never want to change him. He wouldn’t be who he is if his heart wasn’t so damned big. But no, I don’t like it, if I have to be honest. I guess I’m selfish that way. He just never factors in his own safety. And I tell myself I’m not the only one who has to deal with someone they care for running into burning buildings, metaphorical or not, or being in the line of fire, or going into war zones to try and save the helpless, but… it just never gets easier to be the one waiting to see if they come back out again, intact.
Adam: Wow. That really moves me, Olly. I’ve never heard you put it so bluntly before.
Oliver: Yeah, well…
Adam: Do you have it in you to share him with the world?
Oliver: Do I have a choice?
Jackson: calls Olly.
Oliver: No. I need to go get some air.
Adam: Give him a minute, Jay.
Jackson: pauses Is there even a project? There isn’t one, is there? You just wanted to see if he’d open up about it.
Adam: I had to try.
Jackson: Okay. Well, keep trying?
Adam: Of course.
Rune Tooby is a smartass rebel and closeted gay biker with The Born Soldiers motorcycle gang. Rune’s life centered on casual sex and less-than-legal employment, until a pickup truck full of homophobic white supremacists rammed into his bike, destroying his hearing and shattering his life. Learning to live deaf and silent overwhelmed Rune, sending him to humbly beg help from the last people he trusts completely: the rich and powerful Dominants of the Manse, who trained Rune in the arts of BDSM.
Oliver Hughes, cocky day trader and sexual Dominant, lives a life of indulgent luxury. Despite this, he feels adrift and unneeded since his beloved submissive, Jackson Whitney, became absorbed into life as a family man and cardiologist, leaving him little time for his Master. When a meeting between Rune and Oliver is carefully arranged by the leaders of Manse, it starts a wild ride, sweeping up everyone who gets too close to the explosive pair. Rune and Oliver find themselves on a path filled with frustrating miscommunications, rage-filled vengeance, and painfully unearthed secrets. (M/M/M)
