Sydney Valentine

Danielle: Can you state your full name?

Sydney: Am I under arrest?

Danielle: It's just for the record.

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.

Sydney: Ditto.

Danielle: Stay tuned for more interviews with Detective Valentine in the future.
