An Interview With Royalty

Note: the princess has a steroetypically British "posh" accent.

Me: What is your name?

Princess: Amelia... or wait, was it Maria...? Amelia. Amelia. *nods decidingly*

Me: Yes, Princess, it's Amelia. How old are you?

Princess: I haven't the faintest clue. Umm... sixteen I suppose.

Me: Well done. Where do you come from?

Princess: The Palace. It is located just on the edge of a pretty little village... If only His Highne- that is, my father, would allow me to leave the Palace...

Me: Right. Are you married/in love?

Princess: Yes. I am deeply in love with Peter, although I do not beleive that he loves me quite as much...

Me: Do you have any children?

Princess: No. Let us not forget that I am only sixteen.

Me: *smiles* What is your profession?

Princess: As I have said, my father will not allow me to leave this place. The possibility of a profession is non-existant.

Me: Do you have any secrets? *gives penatrating look*

Princess: I do not think that I should... I prefer not to think... *sighs* All right. Sometimes I do evil things, although I am not aware of what I am doing at the time. It is much like I have lost consciousness for a while. Sometimes... I... sometimes... More than once I have returned to consciousness... there was blood on my hands, I... I do not like to speak of...

Me: *nods slowly* Who is your best friend/worst enemy?

Princess: My best friend... Hmm, it is not the phrase I like to use. Of course, I love Peter more than my life. But if I must choose... Peter is not aware of... of... *seems to wake up* I am closest to Lady Agatha. And my worst enemy, I am my worst enemy.

Me: So, what would you take out of a burning house?

Princess: I would not vacate the house.

Me: Name three weaknesses and three strengths.

Princess: I have many weaknesses, too many. A strength is that I am living, but perhaps it is also a weakness, as I do not live for myself. My secret, that is a weakness. I am strong in that I try to be happy, although weak in that I rarely am. And I am loved. Love makes me strong.

Me: If you could change 1 thing in your past, what would it be?

Princess: I... do not remember my past of more than a year ago. I have always wanted to change the day that I met Peter. I do not want Peter to love me. It tires him... I feel as though I am making him suffer for it

Me: What is your first thought in the morning?

Princess: When I awake I am immediately in dread of what I have done in the previous night.

Me: What are you terrified of?

Princess: Many things. I am afraid of the night, and of myself. Also, spiders *giggles*

Me: What is the 1st thing on your Christmas list?

Princess: I do not ask for anything.

Me: What is the worst present anyone's ever given you?

Princess: I do not remember.

Me: Who would you want to talk to one last time?  What would you say?

Princess: For the last time I would talk to Lady Agatha first. I would tell her that I am grateful for all that she has done for me, that I wouldn't have survive this far without her. I would also insist that she will always be Lady Agatha to me *smiles a little* instead of Aggie. Also, I would speak to Peter. I would tell him simply that I love him, and that he is not to miss me.

Me: Would you consider yourself an angel or a devil?

Princess: Devil. Definitely devil.

Me: What would your 3 wishes be?

Princess: One, freedom from the Palace. That is all. Just a day of  freedom.

Me: What makes you angry?

Princess: It is childish, but I become angered when I am disagreed with. The anger is not much, but it is there.

Me: Would you like a hug?

The End
