A CHARACTER INTERVIEW FROM GODDESS BY CHANCE
ME: Today I have the pleasure of sitting down with the beautiful and immensely smart Arienne Alexandra Marcos. How are you today Arienne?
A: I'm doing even better after that wonderful introduction. My head might have swelled just a bit.
ME: Me nor anyone else will hold that against you. Trust me.
A: I hope not.
ME: Don't worry. Now let's get into it. What would you say is your greatest fear?
A: Wow. You're making me have to hit the ground running on that one. Hmm. Honestly I'd probably say looking back over my life and feeling that I spent so much time basking in past regrets that I hadn't actually lived.
ME: That's very profound. Why do you think that happens to people?
A: Things go wrong and you get stuck in a cycle and instead of looking forward to what's ahead you stay stuck in the past.
ME: You're taking it to school on that one. No speaking of the future, what are you looking forward to?
A: A lifetime of love, passion, family and exploring the different facets of myself that I'd never really explored before.
ME: Such as?
A: My burgeoning sexual prowess. I never know I was such a wanton until Triton came into my life so I'm really exploring that side of myself.
ME: There's no doubt in my mind that Triton is enjoying that.
A: He is. Probably more than he should.
ME: Well speaking of Triton, what would you say is the quality you like most about him?
A: Another hard question. There are so many but if I had to only pick one I would say his heart. He doesn't show it to everyone and it's hard to get to, but when you're finally there the only thing you want in this entire world is to feel the entire depths of his love and give it back to him tenfold.
ME: Truly spoken like a woman in love.
A: I am. Very much so.
ME: Now anyone who knows your story, knows that your path to love and a happily ever after has not been easy. How did you find the strength to forgive?
A: It was the hardest thing I ever had to do. I held so much hurt and resentment inside. So much anger. When someone betrays you, all you want is their blood. To feel their pain. But when they come to you with true sincerity, ready to do whatever it takes to earn your trust and love again and they show you with their actions that they are serious, you have to forgive them. The greatest act of love or strength is to forgive.
ME: Indeed it is. We hear so many times, in so many ways how powerful love and forgiveness is.
A: It is. True strength is in opening yourself up.
ME: I can tell just from speaking with you that you have been through a lot and as a result you've blossomed into such a self assured woman. Looking back now, what would you say is your biggest regret?
A: Taking so long to open myself up to love. If I could do it all over again, I would've taken the leap of faith a lot sooner.
ME: You live and you learn.
ME: Well Arienne thank you so much for taking the time to speak with me today. I wish you and Triton nothing but the absolute best.
A: Thank you so much. I really appreciate that.
ME: You're very welcome.
