30. Writer of the heart

”What are you going to eat trough the day?” spurgte tovholderen. “Just some water,” mumlede jeg stresset. Jeg sad I forberedelsesrummet og læste skole og stemningen her var proppet og stresset. Claire var lige nu ude med en af de andre hun publicerede for, så hun kunne ikke sige at jeg skulle spise. Jeg spiser aldrig når jeg har travlt og hvis jeg gør får jeg det dårligt. Tovholderen kiggede på mig. ”Sure?” Jeg nikkede forsigtigt, til svar. Tim kom tilbage fra toilettet. ”Sure you aren’t going to have a break?” spurgte han. Jeg nikke igen. Han snuppede bare bogen igen og fandt min bog, so han lagde ind foran mig. Jeg behøvede ikke mere end at kigge på første ord, så var jeg væk i historien. Jeg glemte alt om at jeg skulle i samtale fire gange, tre af dem på store scene, signere bøger, læse højt og samtidig læse op. ”It is you miss Smith,” kom der en og sagde. Jeg sprang op i luften, men smilte så til ham og fulgte ham. Han var ikke mere end nogle år ældre end mig. ”How is it to be writer in a so young age?” spurgte han. Ja, der var ikke rigtigt nogle forfattere på min alder der får så stor succes i denne alder. ”Stressing sometime, mostly it is cool,” smilte jeg til ham. Han smilede flirtende tilbage, han var hvad Just og jeg ville kalde N/Hot. Et selvopfundet ord, der betød lækker, men ikke noget for mig. ”Well it is a kind of a double life, because you have education beside. I really should be reading for exam today, but well, you don’t say no, to the things I am going to,” forklarede jeg drømmende. Jeg tænkte stadig på den bog jeg havde læst i. Jeg kom om bag scenen, hvor jeg skulle vente. Jeg gjorde store øjne, da jeg så Meg Cabot sidde i stolen ved siden af mig, men fik grineflip, da Flour DeGame satte sig på min ene sidde. Jeg kunne ikke lade være med at tænke på hvad Just havde sagt, da jeg fortalte at jeg skulle i samtale med hendes mor. ”I should greet from your daughter,” smilte jeg. ”Which one?” spurgte Flour. ”The oldest, of course, don’t you know who your daughter is friends with. Well the paps where very interestet in it,” grinte jeg. “What has she been doing now?” udbrød hun træt. “Nothing, she has got holidays and right now she is at Hawaii, where she sleeps half of the day away,” informerede jeg. Just havde længe haft søvnproblemer og ikke sovet… nu havde hun endelig fået lost dem og sov dem ud på Hawaii, mærkelig tøs. Jeg vendte mig mod Meg Cabot. Jeg havde læst ALLE hendes bøger, med kæmpe fornøjelse. ”Hi… I am Meg,” smilte hun til mig. ”I know… I have been reading everything you have wrote… think it was really good. I am Claire” grinte jeg tilbage. “I have got the luck to speak with 3 ladies who means a lot to the youth writing. Here they are Flour DeGame, writer of the Gimalls series, Meg Cabot, the writer behind A Princess Diary, and Claire Smith, only eighteen but always at New York times bestsellerlist, like Meg Cabot… don’t know how they do it,” sagde journalisten. Vi gik ind og satte os. “So… Why do you think you are so popular? I mean there is a lot of youth girl writers who doesn’t get what you do,” sagde hun. “I think it is the fact that we use their world as the happening, so they can recognize something,” forklarede Meg. “That is right. I don’t know a girl, who can’t mirror herself in Megs teen girls… I think she does a good work. And I think that I am just writing about my own world, but I am just making more original stories… actually I don’t know what is so great about myself…” svarede jeg selv. En pige udbrød et eller andet. “What?” spurgte jeg hende med et smil. Ja, der er altid mange smil sådanne steder. ”You say you don’t know what is great about you...! Your stories are different… more realistic in many others, you don’t let Mad get Josh in Size too big and you describe the way the girls in Size too small is thinking, at the most bizarre way, like they maybe do,” sagde hun. “I didn’t let her get him, because that not how love is. But well one time in love with a person, always in love with him, that is actually possible,” svarede jeg alvorligt. “Well that is yet a big part of all your stories. Do you believe in love forever?” spurgte journalisten så. “I always let the girl get the guy, because I think that is right. Yes I believe in love forever,” svarede Meg. Nu kom Flour også på banen. ”I do too, and let them get each other, what would the point be if they didn’t? The girl has worked the entire book to get this boy, it is quite disappointing if she don’t,” sagde hun. Løgn, men klogt nok, jeg overvejede også at lyve. “It is a lie,” sagde jeg med meget lille stemme. ”You want to say something Claire?” spurgte journalisten. “What, she just is a lie. Or she would still be married. I have got a very good friend that doesn’t believe in love AT ALL. And I some ways  I think my friend has got her good right to say that love doesn’t exist. That was why I made Mad give up Josh. That is how love is in real life. And Mad is broken at first, but when she gets over him, years are passing and they actually never get together. The only one is a question of illusion, like love is. Love is a good illusion, maybe the best we have,” filosoferede jeg. “So when you are writing…” skulle journalisten til at spørge, men jeg gættede spørgsmålet. ”When I am writing I am writing about how it should be, not how it is in real life. Or at least that is not how it is mostly… I can’t deny  that it happens to be sometimes,” sagde jeg drømmende. Meg grinte. “I have never read something of that girl beside me, but I can hear I have to. I think I know why you people likes her. She is dreaming, still down at the earth, you age, but some ways older. She is a writer of the heart,” sagde hun.
