WHY DON'T WE GET THE BASICS OUT OF THE WAY.
Well hiya. My name’s Mae Reagan Cross. I know with my first name, I was named after Mae West, which is pretty nifty. Middle name? Er... I have no idea. I think it’s pretty and I pray that it has nothing to do with my parents potentially being republican. I’m just starting at Landsburg in my junior year. It’s lame, but I’m fairly okay with it. At least it’s not as hot. Plenty humid, though. I’m a cheerleader (laugh it up, I know you wanna), I do gymnastics, dance, and am part of the AV club. I’m real into movies and television and I do what I can to get my hands on a camera.
I HEAR YOU HAD QUITE THE CHILDHOOD...
My childhood was okay. Nothing to write all that much about, really. I’m the baby of the family and the only girl, so I’m kind of a princess in the eyes of Momma and Daddy (yeah, I call them that. so sue me!). I was always the loud one of the family... and the loud one in my class. It wasn’t hard to end up in detention. When I was eleven I got my first video camera and pretty much just couldn’t stop. Eventually I got editing stuff, then a better camera. By the time I was thirteen, my parents were sending me off to film camps and internships. Everything was... whatever it was. No use looking too far back on it now, right? When I was fourteen, we moved from New Orleans to Atlanta. It kind of sucked having to start all over again, but it happens. Everything with my family was pretty normal, I guess? Then I had my first real girlfriend and they sorta flipped out. My brothers were okay with it and definitely blocked a lot of my parents’ crap about it. I got bullied a bit in school ‘cause of it so I’m not gonna say my “coming out” was peaches or anything. So, I got mouthier in school, ended up actually fighting idiots that had something to say about my choices, and pretty much was in detention a lot more than what could be considered healthy. On top of that, my girlfriend ended up breaking up with me and started dating guys again. She said she couldn’t “take the pressure.” When Daddy got a new job, we had to pick up and move again. I was plenty fine with that. So now we’re here. Things are still tense at home but getting settled is a pretty dang good distraction for them right now.
WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR LIKES AND DISLIKES?
Well, if it wasn’t clear before, I love movies. I also really like upbeat music. What’s the point in listening to something super depressing, you know? I love iced tea and energy drinks. Heck, I practically live off the stuff when I’m editing. I also love the Atlanta Braves.
I can’t stand being judged or the kind of person that lords their judgment over people. I’m allergic to bees. So... fuck bees. I hate the cold (which is going to suck once winter hits). Also... I know this is a bit silly, but I hate vampires. Like, Stephanie what’s-her-Mormon needs to just be punched... right in the tit.
HOW ABOUT SOME TURN ONS AND TURN OFFS?
I love people that like to be funny. Laughing is sexy, hands down. I really like it when a person smiles to the point where their eyes practically close. I also kind of love it when a person knows just what they want and they take it. I love a challenge as well. So I guess someone that can kind of hold their own is somewhat of a must.
I can’t stand people that can’t make up their minds or are ashamed of who they are. I also think it’s weird when people just can’t seem to breathe out of their god damned nose. Ew. EW! Anyways… I also don’t like people that just assume. Keep your judgments to yourself and I won’t point out how many different ways you’re an idiot. Okay? Okay.
I HEAR YOU'VE GOT SOME NASTY HABITS...
I’m a talker. If I have to fill silence, I will. Bad singing, rambling, clicking a pen. It’s right up there with sitting still more than I have to.
WHAT ABOUT PHOBIAS? HAVE ANY OF THOSE?
I’m afraid of being stuck in high school. Not in the sense of being held back. I’m not an idiot or anything like that. I mean, the last thing I want in life is to have peaked out when I was a teenager. It happens and I will be damned if it happens to me.
TERRIFYING! HOW'S THE LOVE LIFE GOING?
I was just out of a relationship when we moved. I’m not a virgin and I’m not ashamed of myself. I think sex isn’t meant to be restricted. Same goes for love. If you’re into a girl, go for it. If you’re into a guy, go for it. No skin off my nose. People who don’t get that are most likely prudes and/or stupid.
Currently, though, single and in no rush.
WHAT ARE YOUR MAJOR GOALS AFTER GRADUATION?
I have so many. I guess ambition is one of those things that people kind of couple when it comes to me. I want to make something of myself on the social scene, as a short term goal. I want to be a professional dancer or a movie director most of all. I love the visuals with telling a story; be it movement or with a camera.
BEFORE WE GO, WHAT'S YOUR BIG SECRET?
Hon, if I had to tell you that, then what’s the point of calling it a secret?
From age 8 to age 14, Mae was sexually abused by one of her dance instructors; Matthew Billings. The man was put in jail and her parents don’t touch up on it much, but it was one of the primary reasons for their first move and the second after Avery was released from prison and had tracked his star pupil down in Atlanta. He always called her Maeby; a nickname that her new friends in Chicago seem to have taking a liking to calling her.
AND WHAT ARE YOUR VIEWS ON SECRET SAFE?
I kinda think it’s interesting. I mean, just think of how much people need to feed into this in order for it to stay around! I wonder who works it...
THANKS FOR YOUR TIME.
See you around, Sugar.
