Monologue Mania Day # 1359 Pillaged by Janet S. Tiger (c) Nov. 3 , 2017  

                                       A monologue by Janet S. Tiger   © All rights reserved 2017

             (The actor enters, as if ushered into a large room.  Looks around, a little impressed, but not wanting to show it.  Keeps one hand in pocket)

Well, this is a lot like I expected it would be.  After all, you are a wealthy novelist, aren't you?  Yes  you are!

It was so nice of you to welcome me, and I look forward to getting to know you better.

What?  Why am I here?  I think you know.  And if you don't like the pleasantries, I suppose there's no need to say you are welcoming me is there?  You don't want me here at all! 

You let me in here because I forced my way in, didn't I?  Yes, the gun helped.

            (Indicates hand in pocket)

But the truth is, you know why I'm here.

            (Listens, laughs)

Of course you do!  You have to know!  I mean, your last book, about a fellow who is a cab driver, with a wife who looks like a parrot, and, unfortunately, sounds like one, too!

Two children, just like me!  One girl, older, with a suspicious habit of listening into conversations when she shouldn't.

A little boy, sweet, but able to pick locks!

And you say you never met me?  Ha!  That's the funniest joke for this whole situation!

Of course you must have met me!  I have no idea where.....but tonight, we'll figure it out.  Maybe while a passenger in my cab, maybe on a flight somewhere, or in an office waiting to see a doctor.  Who knows?  Who cares?  All I know is that YOU  have pillaged my life in order to write a book about me!  And you have made a fortune, and you live like a king - because of my pillaged life!

 And now, you are going to have to make it all right.

How?  You are going to give me my life back.....

          (Indicates gun in pocket)

Or I will be end yours!

            (Lights down, end of scene)
