Say Something

In this teen monologue, SALA talks to her friend about how they should approach a mutual friend about her drug usage.

SALA:  How am I going to tell her?  You’re the one that’s closer to her than me.  I shouldn’t be the one.  (beat) Okay, wait.  How about we do this together?  We will speak to her together but you have to start the conversation off…not me.  I’ll talk too but you have to initiate the talk. (beat)  How do you think she’s going to take it?  I don’t know if she’ll listen to us, Kim.  I hope so…I feel…I feel like this is all my fault. You know, I’m the one that got her started on smoking weed and now she’s hanging out with those dirt bags and it just all feels too surreal…for me…I don’t know, I don’t know…you start her off but I want to talk to her about it cause I don’t want it to get worse for her…I didn’t think it would get this far, Kim.  Seriously, I didn’t…I just feel like I need to say something.
