Salt and Stone

In teen drama monologue, “Salt and Stone” Jena confides in her Aunt the first time feelings she has for a guy no one approves of.

JENA:  He’s the first guy I ever truly cared for, Ricky’s nothing like a Riley, he does none of the stuff his uncles and cousins do. When we’re together he protects me, makes me feel cared for, and it’s mutual. I see how he is with me, he’s nice, different, real nice and I feel safe with him. I feel like he looks out for me, and that things will be alright when we’re together, and he has ambition, ya know? He wants to start his own mechanic shop, he doesn’t want to go down that other road. It’ll just be motorcycles, and, um, he wants to be a law abiding citizen. He told me that he is nothing like his family, he said he couldn’t ever see himself doing that stuff, he even told me he despises them! He wants to be a gentleman, someone of stature, he doesn’t want to associate with any Riley. What else did he say? …He said he hates how their reputation hurts his own good name. He told me that, and he told me he’s gonna reinstate the name. Then, after all that, he looked me dead in the eye, and said, “Jena, I love you.” I haven’t said it back yet, but, but I was planning to.  I was thinking about it. But now, now I’m questioning everything. I’m questioning all of it, maybe none of it is right, and I don’t know what to do. I don’t think he’ll be happy if I walk away…no, I don’t think he would be. I made a bad mistake, didn’t I?
