Jamie Humphrey, short for Jessamine, but I don’t tell anyone that. Shh….
What do you want most?
Sometimes life kicks a dream right out of you. That happened to me when my dad moved us right after prom. I was happy here with Draven…. But now, I’ve got him back and I’m not leaving anymore.
Why is this so important to you?
I’ve been in love with Draven since we were sixteen. When his show came out, I started his first fan club, Draven’s Ravens, and I have been telling him, in secret, how much I love him. Now, he knows it in person and we can build a life together.
What makes you happy or sad?
Having Draven jump into my life again makes me extremely happy. Knowing we could die any second, not so much.
How do you treat the people in your life?
I do my best to be a good person. I go out of my way to be polite. But if someone doesn’t return the favor and gets ugly, well, it’s on.
Can people count on you?
Yes, you bet! I’m always ready to lend a hand, help a friend, do a favor. I don’t expect anything but thanks in return.
What makes you angry?
Got an hour? This stinking biker gang, for one. I do mean that they stink. Don’t they know what showers are for? Gross! They smell like armpits, cigarette smoke and stale bear. Sheesh, bathe! And while you’re at it, stop chasing us, okay?
Do you stand up for your beliefs?
Yes. What good is having morals and standards if you don’t back them up? I try to pass that on to my students. I hope that presents a positive influence.
What excites you?
Draven Wick! He has since we were sixteen. Of course, then I couldn’t do a thing about it. Now, I can. Being an adult has its perks.
What do you do for a living?
I’m a gymnastics and dance instructor. I do side jobs as a model, especially during Bike Week or Biketoberfest. I also bar tend when I need extra cash.
What kind of books do you like?
I love books with a happy ending. I don’t like reading things that make me cry.
What kind of music do you enjoy?
I’m a rock baby. One thing my dad did was give me good taste in music. He had his Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, Hendrix…. I listen to all that. I found some other bands on my own, but I started with the kings of rock.
What’s the one thing you’d most like to do before you die?
I want to marry Draven and have his babies. I know that sounds all soppy and girlie, but I can’t imagine anything better than that.
If you could, what’s one thing you’d change about yourself?
I’m happy with who I am. Life is changing for the better. I’d love to get away from the stinky bikers, though. Seriously, dudes, take a bath!
