“Waiting For You” – Monologue

SYNOPSIS: At a local Taco Bell, a drive-by shooting takes place where Oscar, a young adult, sees a single father get shot and the best he can do to help is be there with him.

OSCAR: Hey, stay with me. Call an ambulance now! It’s ok, I got you. Let’s sit down right here. You’re good. Don’t worry. You don’t need to speak. Just relax, help is coming. We’re going to get you out of here straight to the hospital. Then you’re going to walk out of that hospital feeling good as new. (Man reaches for cellphone, OSCAR grabs it) Here. Did you want me to make a phone call? I’m sorry. There’s no signal. Is this your son? (Man nods) He looks just like you. Hey, stay with me. You’re going to be just fine. You’re going to go home to your son in no time. You’re going to spend the rest of your life with your son, not here in the middle of a Taco Bell. You’re going to see him grow up. You’re going to see him graduate. Get his first car. His first job. You’re going to be right next to him when he gets married. I promise you’ll be with him every step of the way. (Man raises pinky) Pinky promise. You can’t give up now. He’s waiting for you.
