351Day 351 of 365 Days of Writing Prompts: Write from the perspective of someone who knows your character really well.

Shannon: He’s not as much of a joke as everyone thinks. Yeah, it may seem like all he cares about is getting laugh, but I’ve been his best friend and neighbor since we were kids and I know he’s a lot more complicated. He’s a good brother to younger siblings, and as I watch him I know he cares about people. He doesn’t just brush them off because he could be doing something better. He has a selfless approach to life that isn’t always appreciated by those who don’t see, but I do and I admire him for it.

Erin: Knowing someone as well as I knew her created an element of hatred for those around her. Not because they were terrible, but because they didn’t know what I did. They didn’t know that the seemingly harmless insult would be knives in her gut. They didn’t know posting that picture would lead to her crying herself to sleep. They didn’t know how important attending that event was. It was hard for me to separate my knowledge from there reality. So, to me they were cruel, but only because they didn’t know what I did.

 A character in the eye of the beholder.

  1. It’s been a day since the Evert boys stopped by with their proposition. Rick knows about them, but he doesn’t know everything. And Jacey? She wasn’t there, and Chris is thankful. He knew she’d jump at the chance to do something with her abilities.
    Chris knows she’s meant to do something other than hide, but what Josh was proposing is dangerous. Chris knows his son and niece need friends, but he’s not so desperate to endanger them.
    Chris sighs, running a hand over the side of his face. ‘Jacey’s still learning to control her powers. No one knows what she could do. …Maybe these two could help her. …If not because they know what it is, but because they treat her like a normal person.
    ‘It’s not ideal, but I feel like those boys will go out there regardless. Might as well help each other. …Rick seems excited at the idea of talking to someone his age.’ Chris smiles a little, ’They both deserve some normalcy, after finally being back in the city.’
