Drama monologue from “Curves of the Future”, Scarlet tries to convince her boyfriend that they take a chance and follow their dreams.
SCARLET: You do, but you don’t want to admit it. I know you, Kelsey. I see the fear in your eyes, ever since I’ve become pregnant. This new person has washed itself over you, and you haven’t been the same. Not with me, not with yourself.
You’re all business, stress, and angst. Can you imagine yourself five years from now? I can. I had a vision come to me when I was on the phone to Mama just now, and I saw us down the road from here, and we weren’t us; we were other people, people we wouldn’t even recognize, and that scares the hell out of me. We have things we wish to do, don’t we? Shouldn’t we give them a try? So what if we fall behind? Aren’t we already behind? There’s nowhere worse we can go from here!
I’d rather risk it all with you to see what’s possible. There’s got to be something, some kinda light that’s gonna bless us and this child. We don’t need that town, and we don’t need your brother’s help.
