The 10th Kingdom
written by Simon Moore
Virginia: I can't even remember the day she left, but I remember the morning after because you were trying to make me breakfast and you didn't know where anything was. Tony: Your grandmother came over to watch you because i had to go to work and she said "Look she's playing with her bears. She's coping fine."But you had three bears and you put on of them apart from the other two and told him he had to be all on his own.
Virginia: I knew she'd come back because she left all her clothes. She loved them more then anything, and I kept going to her room to make sure they were there. And then after a few months, you said we had to get rid of them. I remember folding them all neatly, and I kept thinking that a note was suddenly going to flutter out of one of them, written to me, just to me, telling me how much she loved me. Explaining the special, magical reason why she had to go. I still have this uncontrollable urge to go up to people and say "my mother left me when i was seven" as though that will explain everything. I miss her and I hate her and I miss her. I feel like I was on a train and it crashed and there was no one who came to rescue me. I always wanted my life to be a fairy tale story and now it is.
Kudos and much thanks go to Mark for this monologue, it is very much appreciated.
