Fletcher is Aurora’s best friend and the one person she has always been able to rely on. He supports Aurora in everything she does and leaves his life of luxury to help her uncover the truth of the floating cities. So let’s find out more about Aurora’s right hand man…
LJ: What was it like having to leave your life behind to help Aurora discover the truth?
Fletcher: I won’t lie, it wasn’t easy. I love my mum and dad very much and I had a really good life on Utopia. But I also knew I had to help Aurora and keep her safe no matter what. She’s been my best friend for as long as I can remember and Utopia wouldn’t have been the same without her.
LJ: You and Aurora are very close, but she also seems to get along well with Braven. Do you ever get jealous of their relationship?
Fletcher: When I first met Braven I wasn’t sure, but now I know him I know his relationship with Aurora is more like a big brother, little sister one. He will do anything to keep her safe and I can’t be jealous of a guy who is going to do everything in his power to make sure she finishes what she set out to do.
LJ: How would you describe your relationship with Braven?
Fletcher: My whole life I’ve been pretty sheltered and I’ve never really had a good guy friend. We pay each other out and can be competitive, but I know he has my back. Especially when we’re surrounded by so many females, us guys have to stick together.
LJ: Has it been nice to be able to spend time with your sister Maya?
Fletcher: I used to sneak away and visit her when I could on Utopia, but it’s nice to have a chance to really get to know her. She’s such a strong and independent girl, I’m lucky to have her.
LJ: When you’re not evading the Elite guard or trying to get to your next destination what do you like to do in your spare time?
Fletcher: I use to play video games and hang out with Aurora on Utopia.
LJ: Do you ever miss your life on Utopia?
Fletcher: Sometimes. But I have no regrets. Leaving Utopia opened my eyes to what the world was really like. I’d been blind to so much for so long.
LJ: How do you find the strength, determination and resilience to push on when so many would just give up?
Fletcher: It’s hard to give up when you’re surrounded by so many determined and stubborn people. Even if I wanted to, the other’s wouldn’t let me and I’m happy they wouldn’t. I’ve learnt so much about what I’m capable of and who I am. Things I would never have learned if I’d stayed on Utopia.
