Danielle: Can you state your full name?
Sydney: Am I under arrest?
Danielle: It’s just for the record.
Sydney: Again. Am I under arrest?
Danielle: You’re a funny one, aren’t you?
Sydney: Not really. I’m Detective Sydney Valentine, but you knew that already.
Danielle: Yes, but the readers didn’t.
Sydney: Readers schmeaders. Next question.
Danielle: What’s your ethnicity?
Sydney: Mexican American, German, and African American. Why?
Danielle: You have an exotic look. That’s an interesting combo. I like your hair.
Sydney: Thank you.
Danielle: Is it naturally that reddish cinnamon color?
Sydney: Yep. And the curls are natural too.
Danielle: Did you ever wish you had straight hair?
Sydney: Not now, but I did as a kid. I was teased once.
Danielle: What happened?
Sydney: I beat a boy in a race and the sore loser called me Syd the Squid.
Danielle: That’s awful. Did you cry?
Sydney: I didn’t.
Danielle: That must’ve pissed him off. What did you do?
Sydney: I punched him in the stomach.
Danielle: What did he say to that?
Sydney: Oomph! Then, he doubled over and I walked away.
Danielle: Did he ever tease you again?
Sydney: Didn’t you hear me say I got teased once?
Danielle: Detective Sydney Valentine, it’s been a pleasure to meet you.
Danielle: Stay tuned for more interviews with Detective Valentine in the future.
