Just A Crack is about a woman who wants complete happiness in her relationship but feels that her boyfriend may not be the right fit.
RAYLA: What do you think, your shit doesn’t stink? (beat) Answer me…do you actually think you’re above everyone else? You know what you are? I’ll tell you. You are an insecure person. You have issues. You contradict yourself constantly. What’s sad about you, is that you can be the coolest person ever. You have potential to be so wonderful but instead you get stuck on your weird way of thinking.
NO! Let me speak. I listened to you, now you are going to hear what I have to say. You’re controlling. You’re a mind manipulator. You are great at turning things around and making yourself look right. You know how to play the victim. You have a terrible temper. You think who you are, you think, you think no one is more dominant than you are. All those things don’t make you a real well rounded individual.
I think you are the way you are because of how you were raised by your parents. I also think you are too closed minded. If you would just open yourself up a little, just a crack, you may find out so much about yourself. I guarantee you will be able to resolve whatever demons live in you and you will begin to be a happier person. Happy for real, not the show you put on, but the realness of what it means to be happy.
Shhh, listen, please. You need to hear my words and find the strength to make inner changes…or I’m leaving you.
