Rio by Talia Grossman

By: Talia

Once upon a time, there was a woman named Rio who
lived in the Rio Grande and she is 24 years old. She has a
best friend named Talia, who lives in New York City and
she is also 24 years old. They are princesses in the Royal
Family in Sweden and their fandom Talrio. They are both
Duranies, which is a fan name for the band Duran Duran
and the song Rio is named after Talia’s friend, Rio. One
day, they went to see the band in the city of New York and
they were in the VIP section. They met the band
members, John Taylor, who plays the bass, Roger Taylor,
who plays the drums, Andy Taylor (former guitarist), back
up vocalists Anna Ross and Rachael O’Connor, Dominic
Brown (touring guitarist and DJ), Andy Hamilton
(saxophonist), Nick Rhodes, who plays the synthesizer,
Simon Le Bon, who is the lead singer, and their wives,
Yasmin Le Bon (Simon’s wife), Gela Nash-Taylor (John’s
2nd wife), Amanda De Cadenet-Taylor (John’s 1st wife),
Julie Anne Friedman-Rhodes (Nick’s ex wife), Giovanna
Cantone-Taylor (Roger’s 1st wife), Gisella Bernales
(Roger’s 2nd wife), and Tracey Wilson-Taylor (Andy’s
wife). They also met Simon’s children: Amber, Saffron, and
Tallulah, Andy’s children: Andy Taylor, Jr, Georgina, Beth
and Izzy, John’s children: Atlanta, Travis and Zoe, Roger’s
children: James, Elliott, Ellea and Julian, Nick’s children:
Tatjana, and they were very kind to the ladies. The band

sang their most famous songs: Rio, Hungry like the wolf,
The Chauffeur (Sing Blue Silver), The Reflex, Danse
Macabre, Black Moonlight, New Moon on Monday,
Careless Memories, Friends of Mine, Notorious, Save a
Prayer, Is There Something I should know?, Invisible,
Ordinary World, Come Undone, Girls on Film, A View to a
Kill (from James Bond’s A View to a Kill), Planet Earth,
The Wild Boys, and many more songs they have sung in
the last 40 years of their lifetime as Duran Duran. The VIP
experience at the concert was amazing and they let us
buy merch and win free goodies. Rio told Talia that
everyone at the concert was so sweet and the band
invited them to their home country, United Kingdom for
their collaboration concert with up and coming artists such
as Olivia Rodrigo, Sabrina Carpenter, Conan Gray, and
their producer Nile Rodgers of the band Chic. Then, we
both agreed on going to the collaboration concert and we
noticed that Harry Styles is not on the list for the concert,
because he is taking a break from music. Instead of Harry
Styles attending the concert, we both agreed to perform at
the concert and the band said yes to performing. Then, we
were off to go to Birmingham, United Kingdom to visit the
city and perform at the concert. On the day of the concert,
the girls were performing Love Changes Everything by
Michael Ball (from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical
Aspects of Love). The performance was spectacular and
even the actor Michael Ball was there in the audience.

Then after the concert, the girls went back to the country
Sweden to visit the Royal Family and they saw Talia’s
cousins: Anna E, Oskar, Anna W,
Erik, Ebba, Ingrid, Karin W, Karin M,
Klara, Flippa, Sara, Anders, all of her cousins and her au
pairs: Lotta, Jenna, Erika, and Amelie. The girls didn’t see
Talia’s other au pairs: Nina and Sanna, because the au
pairs were busy. The girls went to the ABBA museum and
went to Pippi Longstocking Land and they had a great
time. Eventually, the girls moved into Sweden, because
the USA was dissolving and they didn’t like the violence in
the USA.
And they happily lived in Sweden and finally got
boyfriends named Mattias and Alex.
