A Bite of… Melissa North’s Gaston.

Q1: What do you like most about yourself?

Ha! Just before my heart attack, the realisation that I’ve become my father hit me. So, there’s not a lot I like about me at the moment.

I don’t think many people will miss me either, I’ve been called an asshole so many times, I’ve lost count. I’m a spirit now and besides hanging out for a smoke and to feel the taste of gin sliding down my throat, I flit around wishing I’d made better choices.


Q2: If someone offered you the chance to change one thing in your world what would it be and why?

*Gaston looked to be pacing the floor, however with spirit qualities, pacing really just doesn’t seem to sound right. His brow creased and dark eyes narrowed as he turned*

I would change the day my father lost the plot. He cheated on my mother with whores from a town the circus was performing in, and the bastard loved the moonshine… I tell you! If I was older then, I would have killed him myself!

*The caravan we are sitting in begins to shake and the drawers spring open dislodging their contents onto the floor*


Q3: What career would you most like to follow if not your own and why?

*Gaston shakes his head and scratched his bulbous belly*

In hindsight, I would not change my career, if I knew now what the future was to deal out, I would of changed my ways. I should have taken more notice of a lot of people. I’ve hurt some-one I love and I miss her.

*He fades in and out of view as he speaks before disappearing completely from my view*
