Interview of Gia Kearns by Arik Baine
You used to live in Boston’s North End with your father. If you were to take me on a tour of your neighborhood, what would you want to do?
I’d take you on walking tour to see some of the historical buildings in the area, such as Paul Revere’s house, and drag you along Hanover Street to browse the shops. After, we’d eat at one of my many favorite Italian restaurants. The Italian food in the North End is so good. Then I’d take you to get a delicious cannoli at Mike’s Pastries. My fav is chocolate chip.
I’ve been in your apartment. I know, I’m sorry about the damage. It’s somewhat small. Are all the apartments in Boston like that or is it because it’s just you and your father living there?
Well, not all in Boston are. North End apartments do tend to be tiny. Ours is small, but its two bedrooms, and just big enough for Pop and I. He got the apartment before I was born. He says he’ll never move, because he’s marked my growth on the frame of the bathroom door. Well, that was before … you know. Anyway, I loved living there. It’s like living in history.
I’m always surprised how much you can eat. You seem like you’re always hungry. What is your favorite food?
Well, duh, see the answer above. Italian all the way! Carbs, sauce, cheese … it’s heaven on a plate.
When you’re nervous, you get this cute little twitch at the corner of your mouth. Is that from an accident or a family trait?
I used to think it was from accident, but recently found out I inherited it from my mom.
You just recently found out you were betrothed to Bastien when you were a baby. How do you feel about it … about him?
You caught me off guard, is all. As I said before, there’s no way I’m keeping that promise. It’s archaic anyway. No one’s telling me who I’m going to marry.
You didn’t answer the last part of the question.
I don’t know. He’s arrogant, but nice. His people really like him. But I have eyes for someone else.
Now, I’m blushing.
Guys don’t blush. Do they?
I’m not certain. Perhaps. One last question, you’ve handled yourself well with all this danger happening around you. How are you holding up?
I’m terrified at times, but there’s so much at stake. I have to do what’s expected of me, I guess.
