Therapy: Riddle Me This [Part 6] by JenniChan Therapy: Riddle Me This [Part 6] by JenniChan


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?

S: ...No.

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: No.

S: What?

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.

OOC? You're kidding right? This is brilliant, excellent stuff and I've been loving these for how dedicated they've been. All your stuff is well written!
