Before You Go

In this drama monologue, the hit man about to do a hit, speaks briefly to the victim.

MAN: …but I told you…years ago.


Didn’t I?  (beat) Do you think it was all wannabe tough talk??

…You really should have known better.
…I warned you.
…I did my best to make you aware of what would happen.
…You got careless.

(long pause.)

I’ll look after your wife; your kids.  They will be cared for and protected and they will never know what you did.  You have my word.  At least I gave you that, before you go.

(pulls out gun and shoots one round into the other man’s forehead)
