Trey King

Tuesday, November 9, 2010

Here's my next character in my mystery. I've finally come up for a name with it; how long I'll keep that name, I don't know. But here it is: 499 Cherry St. I can't tell you why I named it that, because it might give some things away. But enough of that; I want to introduce you to Trey Winston King.

Trey is Drew's younger brother, and he's a lot different than Ellie. He's also hard to describe. Trey is kind of shy and he doesn't understand how his friends can rush into a mystery; it's crazy! Trey would rather sit and think over all the pros and cons of everything he does. And yet, in the beginning of the book, after he has said that there is no mystery, he calls the FBI. Trey's a very complex person.

Trey does the unexpected all the time. Just when you think he's going to do something, he does something completely unrelated to what you thought he was going to do. He's sweet, and charming, but you can't help wish that he was a little crazier. He's not a coward--no, don't ever think that! He just likes to think things over. You start to forgive him when everything goes wrong and he's right there, encouraging everybody. Trey is the most mature person in the whole book.

That's really all I can say to let you know about Trey. There's so much more that everyone should know about him, but it would ruin the story; plus, as I said before, he's a complex character. So much so that sometimes it's hard for me to figure him out. So, today, I think that I'm going to sit down and get to know him. Because even the author of a book, needs to understand their characters--more than the reader. Makes sense, right? Thanks for reading!
