Fereshteh Jan of A Story that isn't On Here

1 - What is your name?

"Fereshteh Jan." 

2 - How old are you?

"Just nineteen. "

3 - Where do you come from?

"The most incredibly awful hellhole filled with scum that don't deserve to live...Afghanistan, actually."

4 - Are you married/in love?

"To be honest, I never gave love much thought. I was married, though." She shudders. "That was awful."

5 - Do you have any children?

"Thankfully no."

6 - What is your profession?

"Currently? I'd have to say...dispenser of justice."

7 - Do you have any secrets?

"If I did, why would I tell you?"

8 - Who is your best friend/worst enemy?

"Best friend...there has to be someone..." she thinks "No one really yet. And I have too many enemies to have one stand out in particular."

9 - What would you take out of a burning house?

"People." she shrugs. "Weapons, maybe, some of the people's valuables if there's time--people need the means to live as well, of course."

10 - Name three weaknesses and three strengths.

"As for strengths..." she thinks. "I certainly have courage, or so I'm told. And I'm smart enough to have gotten as far as I have against that f***ing poison, opium..."

She pauses.

"As for the third, I'd have to say willingness to sacrifice for morality. That would probably count as a strength. As for weaknesses...why would I tell you?"

11 - If you could change 1 thing in your past, what would it be?

"Having left that bastard of a husband I had earlier. He was truly a piece of s***, and I didn't even want him."

12 - What is your first thought in the morning?

"I'm actually quite happy when the sun rises--I begin to feel rising energy." She smiles.

13 - What are you terrified of?

"Mmmm..." Fereshteh begins to think, for a while. "...I..."

"I'll figure something out."

14 - What is the 1st thing on your Christmas list?

"I wouldn't be celebrating a Christian holiday."

15 - What is the worst present anyone's ever given you?

"...do you really want me to say?"

16 - Who would you want to talk to one last time?  What would you say?

"I don't have many regrets. Still, I'd love to kill my husband again, now, that I'm more confident. Or perhaps I'd speak with my mother. I never did go back to her when I left..."

17 - Would you consider yourself an angel or a devil?

"I'd consider myself what I am, which is only possibly angelic?"

18 - What would your 3 wishes be?

"My first would be for the ability to use my blessings at night. That would make things so much more convenient. Then I'd probably wish for greater power and knowledge of the precise moral value of every soul."

19 - What makes you angry?

"F***ing bastards that spend their time breaking bodies or souls."

20 - Would you like a hug?

"...no?"
