Drama monologue from, “The Visitant” Rick explains to his wife what happened when he approached a strange man on their property.
RICK: Well, I’m, I’m not quite sure. As I turned the corner and began my approach, he seemed to already know I was there, but he was wearing sunglasses, I believe to hide the fact that he is blind.
I am sure that he is blind because when I got close enough to him, I couldn’t see his pupils, his eyes were half closed and appeared sunken in…although they were gleaming. Then his head moved wherever I walked, like he was still able to…it was as if he was waiting for me..or..this may sound odd but, I got the feeling from him that he was expecting me. BUT–you know when you walk into someone’s home and they receive you in such a way because they are expecting you? (beat) He was expecting me.
..He spoke to me..first. He asked me if I was interested in buying one. And I said, “What are you selling?” And he said, “You must have the temperament to buy in order to find out.” And I said, “I won’t buy something unless I know what it is I am buying.” And then he, he started laughing in such a way, the most off-putting laughter I had ever heard..like he was attacking me but laughing me away and he did, I, I walked away from him as quickly as I could.
As I walked past him, I saw that there was nothing he could sell me. It was only him standing there, alone, not even an umbrella, just the clothes on his back, drenched.
