Mission Loc@l: What do you think of love?
Elizabeth [teenage girl wearing sneakers]: Do you have all day?
Fatima [Elizabeth’s older sister]: I don’t know how to describe love, but the only way I can truly appreciate love is the love between a mother and a child. Otherwise love sucks.
Elizabeth: I don’t know anything about love. Love sucks.
Fatima: It sure feels like it.
ML: Are you in love?
Fatima: Yes I am. I can’t seem to get away.
Elizabeth: He never seems to go away. He seduces you with his manipulative ways.
Fatima: Yes, with his seducing ways. But she is too young for love.
ML: What advice did your parents give you about love?
Fatima: Stay away! Be single! Enjoy your life! I should have listened. Stand up on your own two feet before you fall in love. I got married. I was married for four years.
ML: Are you still married?
Fatima: No, I am not married anymore. It was the craziest thing I have done, and I am glad that it was over with. I honestly don’t know why I did it. I was so young. What’s the craziest thing you’ve done? [to Elizabeth] Not much, right?
Elizabeth: Yes, not much. I once chased a guy all the way down 24th Street. Chasing boys that I like was crazy. Do you remember that?
Fatima: Oh yes! [laughing]
ML: Any advice for your potential significant others?
Elizabeth: Learn how to treat us right. That’s it. We are simple.
