Essay beginning This monologue is through the thoughts of a depressed teen, which gets beaten up by her stepfather. Black, Blue and Crimson She walks up to the mirror to check her newly blossoming bruises that she'd just received from her step-dad. (Winces in pain) Wow (flatly) There once was a time when black and blue used to be two of my most favoured colours. Now, I despise the dullness and routinely appearance of those two colours. (Reaches out to feel her eye) Ow! (Again winces in pain.) This time, it looks much stranger than the other times. It looks likes the cooked yolk inside of an old, cold boiled egg.

I don't need more problems. Perhaps I should bunk. Nah, the last time I did, my nosy-ass form tutor felt it necessary to check up on me. 'Been away too much' she said over the phone to him.
