Character Fun: “What is trust?”

Welcome all to a new thing that will be appearing on my blog from time to time! What is Character Fun? In these posts, I will be taking questions that you suggest or questions that I stumble across, and will be making one of my characters answer them. This will not be a weekly thing, but expect more to come in the future.

The question this time is, “What is trust?” Paige, the main character of The Hunted Trilogy will be answering that question with her personal opinion. So without further ado, here’s Paige with her answer.

Trust is family. There is no one you can trust fully except family. What would you do without them? Your family raised you. They know you and you know them. It’s a bond. A simple bond that’s more important than anything else.

People can become family. Friends aren’t family. You can’t trust them, can’t know what they really think. People lie and they kill. They destroy. You can’t trust them. You can only trust family. I can only trust family. There’s always a sliver of trust between friends, but you can’t risk it. They’ll betray you.

I’m not ignorant. Not all family is good. Some will try to destroy what they helped build. Their family. Their pack. And then? We try to move on without them.

Trust is never a guarantee, but it’s strongest in family. My parents had friends once. I had friends once.

Not anymore.

This is how Paige views trust at the start of the first book, Werewolf’s Lair. Will her view change as the story progresses? We’ll see when we get there, won’t we?

Let me know in the comments if you like this idea and if you do, recommend some questions for characters to answer in the future! I love hearing what you think.

Have a great weekend!
