Monet didn’t find it surprising that Oliver found it surprising that she didn’t like candy. If that made sense. She knew most people her age were supposed to like confectionery, but, for some reason, she just didn’t. Maybe it was sugar highs, how they made you want to bounce off things and run around. Monet didn’t mind physical activity, but she hated not being in control. She hated how sugar could change her mood and state of mind without her consent. But, then again, caffeine did the same thing and Monet drank more coffee than was probably good for her. The Draco made a mental note to cut down.
Oliver seemed to share her views on the existence of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. “Yeah,” she said, “I’m pretty sure they were made as an advertisement thing. Still, it would be kind of cool if a factory like that actually existed! I read The Witches, because my aunt found it so hilarious. I did find it interesting though, how muggles view witches and wizards. They have lots of different ideas on the subject.”
Monet was fascinated by muggles. She loved how they lived, how they were completely oblivious to magic, unless it literally came knocking on your door asking for your children. She loved how they survived without it; Wizards were addicted to it, they needed it, and yet muggles were perfectly fine without it. It was a different world, strange and magical in its own way.
Monet had to think a bit about his next question. Grown up stuff? What exactly was grown up stuff? Monet had always been very mature, so kid stuff and grown up stuff just got mixed together. “I like some things that could be considered ‘Grown Up Stuff’” she said. “But I think I just prefer salty things to sweet things. I like nuts and potato chips, that sort of thing. I love Goldfish Crackers! I could eat about a million of them. The only candy I really like is black licorice, but even that’s not that sweet.”
She watched as he emptied the packet in to his mouth. “I’m actually amazed that you don’t feel sick yet!” she grinned. “Do you normally eat this much candy?”
