PSYCHIATRIC REHABILITATION PROGRAM
PROPORTY OF DOCTOR S. CROWE
S: Good morning Edward.
E: Good morning Susan... you're in high spirits today.
S: Yes, I am. You don't look so well though.
E: A little trouble sleeping...
S: Oh? Would you like to talk about it?
E: What's this? Not going 'rip me a new one' today?
E: I see. So, am I invited?
S: Invited...? To what?
E: The wedding, of course.
S: *The chair creaks as she stands, she demands frantically* How do you know about that!?
E: The ring on your finger. *Laughs*
S: Oh... o-of course... right. *Sits down*
E: I'm surprised your beloved fiancee could buy you a real diamond ring, I figured someone of his income would purchase a cheap piece of plastic for twenty five cents from a slot machine-
S: That's not funny Edward.
E: I suppose his new manuscript was accepted then?
S: ...Yes, it was.
E: And you think that things are going to change, do you?
S: I've heard enough-
E: Listen to me very carefully Susan. This new success, the AA meetings, it won't change anything. It may makes things rosy for a while, but when times get hard... Say his next manuscript is rejected, He'll go back to the alcohol.
S: You don't know him at all.
E: No, that would be you. Did you know alcoholism is genetic? Children whose parents were alcoholics are four times more likely to become alcoholics themselves. Seth's family has a history of alcoholism, substance abuse, and... domestic violence. To be honest I'm surprised you're being so short sighted.
S: Enough! That's enough... how did you get access to that kind of information?
E: You seem to forget that I am a genius. Hacking into old police records is child's play for me. And if that doesn't work... well let's just say crime pays a lot more then you think. I have acquired quite a fortune in these past few years, under an alias... an alias I will be keeping to myself, naturally. You'd be surprised how much information you can get with the right amount of money.
S: Why are you telling me this?
E: To prove a point.
S: ...well you've certainly accomplished your goal... anything else you want to say, Edward?
E: No, I suppose if you want to marry a has-been author and alcoholic, it's your business ...From the look on your face, I'm guessing I won't be invited to the wedding ceremony then, will I?
*The tape ends*
Therapy is almost over... the finale is fast approaching.
To be honest, I was really worried how these would turn out. I haven't had much experience writing... Except for a few REALLY old fanfics based on the game Bioshock. (Which I REALLY need to finish...) I hope these 'Therapy sessions' are written well enough and that I got Riddler's character correctly so far. I apologize for when he's been out of character... and if he acts OOC during the finale.
