To Ponder in the Moonlight[As the party rages on inside the ballroom, the door to the balcony quietly opens and we see Icaro sneak from the festivities. It is dark outside, but the moonlight illuminates Icaro’s visage.]To Ponder in the Moonlight1 day ago in Drama More Like This
Icaro: Alas, the moon still shines on this wretched world.
Let me take a moment to observe and collect that which longs to be understood.
Those who have what they have
And those who have not what they desire,
The latter tire with the whips that burn their flesh,
Sear their souls and humiliate them.
Yet, they do not retaliate, not even do they complain.
This bane of classes, of tiers, of hierarchy, does it not pain those who are subject to its ruthless ideals and tasks?

"You're beautiful, you know that right?" I say.
She looks down, she shouldn't look so sad when I say that. Did I do something wrong?
As she looks into my eyes, slightly shaking her head no as she replies
"No, I'm not beautiful."
Is she having a bad day, I wonder. Perhaps something was said to her again.
"What do you mean, honey?"
She takes her time before speaking and exhales, this is the most serious I've ever seen her.
"I mean, I'm not beautiful. I dont want to be even if I am. I'll make myself uglier as the days go on if I have to.
The pretty people are killing this world and all of the people that I care for, I don't want to be a part of that.."
I can't say anything.

[The scene fades in to two men in an alleyway. The first, Ashe, is cornered against a wall, his hands in a defensive position. The other, the Thug, brandishes a knife.]
Thug: Listen pal; don’t make this harder than it has to be, ‘kay? Just hand over your wallet and the likes. Perhaps that watch will look good on me…
Ashe: I really don’t see the point.
Ashe: I really don’t see the point. After all, if I give you my things you will most likely kill me, but if I don’t hand them over you will kill me and then take them. Either way, I lose, and you win, at least until this pathetic police department convicts you. But even then, you will probably get off on some sort of a misdemeanor, even though you killed a fellow human. But oh well, you will win for the time being.
