Monet

 

I didn't actually interview Monet. I couldn't. I love my girlfriend very much and I think she's gorgeous in every way but Monet is Monet. She looked in the direction of my camera and I couldn't catch my breath enough to click.

Instead my girlfriend interviewed her. Did I mention I love her very much? We're getting married soon. I love you, honey.

MJ: I hear you have three siblings.

Monet: Yes. An older brother and two younger sisters, twins.

MJ: You're so lucky. I'm an only. I'd've loved to have brothers or sisters.

Monet:. My sisters are more than ten years younger than I so we don't do girltalk or anything. But my brother and I were very close as children. We had our own language and created entire worlds to rule. Our parents were very involved in their jobs, you see, and we had tutors and nannies through most of elementary school. We were very sheltered.

MJ: That's cute! Where is he now?

Monet: He... he has his own life now. I suppose that's what happens when you grow up. But I'm happy, too, with my career. I stayed the princess of our old stories.
