The Guild Master’s General managed to convince (Future) Alexand Merek to agree to a candid interview with the reporter Cordelia (Bizzi) Gray from 101 Downtime News. Bizzi has no idea how he managed to secure this interview, but Alexand allowed the film crew to set camp in her grounds, and after a wardrobe change and an hour with the network’s makeup team, the interview is ready to commence. (For my magical son, Sam. Everyone else thought it was raining, but you knew they were all wrong.)
The Guild Master’s General separates himself from the scurry of reporters and Alexand Merek fans, as the two women, the reporter Bizzi Gray, who he rescued not so long ago, and Alexand Merek, herself, approach. (See Unbound Boxes Limping Gods: Disconnected Stories. Issue # 28: Cordelia (Bizzi) Gray)
After letting Anya release the soul back into the last child’s body, Alexand and the rest of the Resurrection party realise that there is a commotion outside in the courtyard, involving fans dressed as various characters associated with their idol.
Cordelia (Bizzi) Gray is a reporter working for 101 Downtime News, which specialises in celebrity live news reports. She has just been given the heads up that the reclusive Alexand Merek has been spotted inside the School of Applied Resurrection. She has pushed her way to the front of the building, along with her camera crew, to where she can see Alexand Merek, beside her wife and a strange woman with tattoos on her face resurrecting four dead children in front of a school of Time Academy students.
Cordelia is a media student at The University of KwaZulu, Natal, in South Africa. Her competitive nature has put her ahead of her peers, and she is in line for a scholarship to work as a junior reporter for a local news network. She is building her résumé in a rather dangerous way, and expects to knock her competition out of the game.
