This comedy/dramedy monologue is for a female actor from a high school play called "The Ghosts of Detention" ISBN-13: 978-1499111309

It is about a girl named Harmony who goes by the name Harm.

THE GIRL WHO BROKE HIS FINGER (MONOLOGUE)

by D. M. Larson

(HARM wears all black and is sharpening a pencil with a pocket knife)


HARM

I don't like to be touched... By anyone... Ever.
Touch me and I touch you back... With my fist.

I want to hurt them... Cause them pain like they did to me... Suffer... Squirm... Beg for mercy.

This guy touched me... with a big smile on his face... Like he did it to be funny... And I broke his finger...

Back in detention again for it... I wonder how long they can keep me in there... I must've racked up a few years by now... At the rate I'm going, I will be 30 before I get out of high school detention.

What's the point of trying... no point in being good and pretending because it never gets me anywhere... I've stopped wishing I'm something, I'm not.

"Flunkies" scene for 3 actors from "The Ghosts of Detention"

BRITNEY
I can't believe I'm stuck in this production with a bunch of detention flunkies.

HARM
How'd you like a detention sandwich?

BRITNEY
How crude.

HARM
I'm going to kill her.

(JIMMY grabs a big pitcher of water and manages to get between HARM and BRITNEY. JIMMY dumps all the water on BRITNEY)

JIMMY
Ooops. Sorry about that Britney.

BRITNEY
You did that on purpose. Now I have to do my makeup again. You... freaks!

(BRITNEY stomps out)

HARM
Thanks, Jimmy. I would have killed her.

JIMMY
Just wanted to save the show from disaster... and you...

HARM
Why me?

JIMMY
I don't want you stuck in detention forever.

HARM
Why do you care?

JIMMY
I just do.

HARM
You doing it for me... or for yourself?

JIMMY
What do you mean?

HARM
If I killed Britney, maybe the show would be canceled tonight and the deal off from detention...

JIMMY
No... I was thinking more about... you.

HARM
You like me, don't you?

JIMMY
Yeah.

HARM
So why were you always pissing me off? Touching me and stuff?

JIMMY
Because I liked you.

HARM
You have to work on how you show it. Dunking Britney was good.

JIMMY
And giving the principal a wedgie.

HARM
You did that for me?

JIMMY
Uh huh.

HARM
That's kind of sweet.

JIMMY
Really?

HARM
Yeah, in a twisted sort of way... that's that way I like it... twisted.

JIMMY
Twisted.

HARM
I guess I'm glad you stopped me from killing Britney. I don't really want to ruin everyone's chance to get out of detention. I could care less about myself, but the rest of you I care about helping. I wouldn't want to disappoint all of you. I've never really look at it like that before... that what I do might hurt others. I look out for number one, maybe I need to help out number two once in awhile.

JIMMY
It feels good to be a part of something.

HARM
So what you going to do with yourself when you are done with this play and out of detention?

JIMMY
I was thinking of asking someone out on a date.
HARM
Who would that be?

JIMMY
Britney.

HARM
Really? I think she'd say no.

JIMMY
You actually.

HARM
I kind of figured.

JIMMY
You like bowling. What to go bowling?

HARM
No way... how did you know I liked bowling?

JIMMY
And playing pool.

HARM
You little stalker. You following me?

JIMMY
Uh... uh...

HARM
It's okay.

JIMMY
Really?

HARM
I've always wanted my own stalker. It's kind of cute.

(JIMMY blushes and can't speak)

HARM (CONT.)
Follow me, Jimmy. Time to get ready for the show.

(JIMMY follows HARM happily off stage)
