    Strangers are monologues told by every day people.

    Strangers: The Missing Father

    He called today.
    D**N it! That no good woman, Loretta!
    *sigh*
    Yeah...Who would have thought?
    Look, I knew this day would come.
    MAN! Can't believe this bull....
    Who? Who called?
    Jordan...
    My son.
    I haven't seen him or nothing since he was 4.
    Or his NO GOOD MAMA!!
    Hell! I had to get outta there! The B*** was drivin' me nuts!
    I'm HAAAARD working man. I gets mine. You know?
    But to come home and hear her naggin' me from dust to...
    Look...alright, I ain't no father.
    He called.
    Said he wanted to know who his father was.
    Wanted to close the book or some foolishness like that...
    I told him...'Straight up lil man'....
    'I ain't no father...and you ain't my son'
    'LORETTA! Yo mother! She should have had the God D**n sense
    to tell you NOT to get in contact with me.
    '
    He must not be bright or somethin' cause he asked me why I left.
    'Cause...'
    'Cause, I was only with Loretta cause she tricked me into stayin' around.'
    'She knew I wasn't ready for no baby.'

    I'ma tell you this...
    I had a family before all this mess.
    I admit. I was seeing Loretta while I was still married.
    ...
    2 kids with my wife. A boy and a girl.
    My kids won't talk to me no more!
    I lost EVERYTHING...over HER!!
    'Look, lil' man'
    'Don't be no fool like yo mama!'
    'Don't call back no mo'

    You know what he told me?
    You know what that little punk told ME?
    "I'm 24 years old. It's been 20 years since the last time I saw you. I'm a grown man. I got a bachelor's degree in Engineering. I'm getting married to a beautiful woman I met in college. She's a lawyer. So guess what? Mama didn't raise no fool....."
    "....You're the fool."

    And that was that....
    PUNK LITTLE N***A!

    Strangers is a series of monologues from different types of people...

    But there might be a part 2 from the Son's side and a part 3 from Loretta, the mother.
