1. What was the first thing that attracted you to Elizabeth?
Evan: Well, I was 6 when we met, but I think it was probably her attitude. All of the other girls were so passive and Lizzie never took crap from anyone. She always said what she felt and no matter what, I knew I was getting the truth from her. Honesty is incredibly sexy.
Elizabeth: I wasn’t always honest. I waited until you told me you liked me for me to act on it. I was in love with you for years before that and never said anything.
Evan blushed and leaned in to kiss her softly.
2. If you were in love with him for so long, why not act on it?
Elizabeth: He was my brother’s best friend. I felt it was breaking a code or something.
Evan: It was Jason who finally pushed us together.
3. Speaking of Jason, what was it like growing up as a twin?
Elizabeth: The best and the worst. (she laughs). I adore my brother, but he has always been the best at everything. He is gorgeous, so that meant all my friends wanted to meet him. He’s famous, so that meant the whole world wanted to meet him. And he was best friends with the one man I adored, so that was an issue.
Elizabeth: But it has been the best having Jason as my brother. He is such a kind and caring man and he has always had my back. Growing up, we did everything together and I tried my best to emulate him. I miss him being so far away, but I know he is only a phone call away.
4. So both of you have very specific interests. What made you become a bodyguard and a pilot?
Evan: I guess I always wanted to be a protector. I never felt comfortable in the spotlight, and being with Jason, we were always surrounded. I found it was important to me to make sure he was safe and then I realized that it was important for so many of us to be able to feel that way. I just wanted to help other people feel safe and now, looking at Brittany and Tommy and Naomi I feel like I have really found a purpose.
Elizabeth: I love flying. There is nothing like the feeling of soaring above the clouds and seeing the beauty of the world around us. I also became really determined when I found out how difficult it was for a woman to be a pilot. I had to work so hard just to be considered on equal footing and that made me love it even more.
5. Evan is always such a stoic person. When is he the most romantic?
Evan rolled his eyes and looked at Elizabeth.
Evan: You don’t have to answer that. You probably can’t.
Elizabeth: When he holds me at night and makes me feel like I’m the most beautiful woman in the world. When he comforts me and dances with me and shows me a part of himself that nobody else sees.
Evan felt his eyes grow wet with her words and he held her hand in his.
Evan: I love you so much.
Elizabeth: I love you, too.
