*SORRY FOR ISSUE WITH PIC,
BUT STILL SHOWS MOST
Interview with Gray and Nia
1. You’ve been everywhere. What’s your favorite city?
Nia: I think I’d say LA is my favorite. I love the weather, the beaches, and the sprawl. And Gray and I have a good track record there too—nothing really bad ever happened to us.
Gray: Nothing bad? What about the time when that drug dealer sicced his Rottweilers on us? No, give me New York every time. It’s got it all, and so much crazy stuff happens there that nobody ever notices us.
2. And your least favorite?
Nia: That’s tough. Gray has messed up so many times in so many places. But I think I’d go with Bakersfield. That one really hurt. I’ll never go back.
Gray: Yeah, yeah. It’s always my fault. Bakersfield was tough, and I could never bring myself to go back there either, but I’m going with Spokane. I’ve only been there once, but more disasters happened there in one twenty-four hour period than any other day in my life.
3. What’s your best memory of your time together?
Nia: That’s easy. Christmas week in Minneapolis when I was nineteen and Gray was eight—or were you nine? Anyway, we stumbled onto a bank robber and managed to relieve him of….what was it, $25,000?
Gray: I was nine, and it was more like $35,000.
Nia: Okay, $35,000. Anyway, Gray and I spent all day every day right up to Christmas running around playing Santa Claus. We gave money and all kinds of presents to dozens of charities around town. It was pretty cool. One of the families that our donations helped invited Gray and me to Christmas dinner with them. It was the first real Christmas dinner we had had in years.
Gray: Yeah, that was pretty cool, except I had to sit next to Grandma at dinner. She spent the whole time ranting against Wal-Mart for not honoring some coupon she had. No, for me, the best memory would be a summer we spent in Pittsburgh. We were flush with cash and we stayed in a hotel near PNC Park, intent on lying low for a few months. It was a great summer. Every day the Pirates were in town, we’d go over to the Park and take in the game. We must have gone to fifty games at least. Man, I can still taste those Primanti Brothers sandwiches.
4. What happened after you two separated?
Nia: It’s been tough, really, really tough. For the first month, Rachel and I stayed on the move. We first went to Alberta, Canada, got a car, and spend a week driving to Toronto, before crossing back into the U.S. and heading to D.C. Now, Rachel and I live together in Alexandria, Virginia, where I work in a florist shop. Most of our free time is spent working on getting Gray out of Cracked. It’s not going to be easy, but we’ve got an ace or two up our sleeve.
Gray: Well, hurry it up, Sis. It’s not exactly a picnic in here. Yeah, so after Nia and I separated, they brought me straight to Cracked and here I’ve been ever since. They think they can train me, like I could actually be a soldier or something. It’s rough, but Jace is helping.
Nia: Jace? What do you mean?
Gray: Forget I said anything. Look, it’s classified, Nia. Okay?
Nia: Oh God, please tell me—
Gray: Nia. Just, leave it alone. Okay?
5. Well, we definitely need a follow up question. Is there someone special in your life right now—romantically special?
Come on, guys. Honest answer time.
Nia: Okay. Yes.
Gray: What? Who?
Nia: None of your beeswax. That’s who.
What about your Gray?
Gray: Possibly…maybe. Okay, fine. Yes.
Nia: You’ve got to be kidding me? They kidnapped you. Is it—
Gray: It’s none of your damned beeswax.
Okay, that’s clearly a story for another day. Thank you two for taking the time talk with me. We definitely have to do this again.
