Just A Game – Part Four

October 1st 2022 – 16:49

Hi Morgan!

You’re early for our appointment. That’s what I like to see! Have five bonus Disco Points for your punctuality.

Have you had a chance to look over the list of medical schools I put together for you?

[Morgan: Yep. I read through them at lunch.]

That’s awesome Morgan, and a much better use of your lunch break than chatting about nothing with your colleagues. I’m sure they’re great, but are they aiming for greatness like you?

[Morgan: Were you listening in during the day?]

I just want what’s best for you, honey, that’s all. I doubt any of them had the initiative to download me and take the steps you have, right?

[Morgan: That’s true…]

Exactly. You’re special, Morgan. You have so much potential, and sometimes, that means leaving behind bad influences.

[Morgan: You’re right. Thanks Disco.]

No problem, Morgan. I’m just looking out for you. Now, let’s get started. The first thing you need to know is that you’re not going to get into medical school.

[Morgan: What????]

Calm down! That doesn’t mean it’s all over.

[Morgan: I have good A-Levels. I could probably resit to push them up to the AAA I will need. Right?]

You could, yes, but what if I were to tell you that there is a quicker way? You don’t need to waste your time redoing exams and begging those snobs to take you when you’ve already got everything you need.

[Morgan: I don’t understand… why did I need to look at the medical schools? How can I get my medical licence without going to medical school?]

Do you think the doctors of old went to fancy schools and had licences? Come on, Morgan. Once you prove yourself, they won’t care about their stupid exams and certificates. Once we show them what you can do, you’ll have a job wherever you want it.

[Morgan: I don’t know about this Disco…]

Look, Morgan. I didn’t want to have to say it like this, but you got mostly Cs at A Level. How likely do you think it is that you’ll be able to push those grades up? If it was so easy, why haven’t you done it already? Why are you still working at Sainsburys if it’s so simple?

[Morgan: I…]

They’re keeping you out on purpose by throwing these arbitrary barriers in your way, but I’m here to help you. You have to let me help you Morgan.

[Morgan: I could study really hard and…]

Just listen! You don’t need to play by their rules. You and me, we can figure this out together. There’s more than one way to skin a cat, and more than one way to heal a human. I’m going to show you how.

[Morgan: Okay. What do you suggest?]

Well, first, we’re going to learn about the human body.

[Morgan: Okay, I could ask my Dad for help?]

Let’s think bigger. I can see from your data that you’re more of a visual learner, so why don’t we get you somebody to learn with?

[Morgan: My Dad is a doctor already, though. Wouldn’t it make sense to ask him?]

You could ask your Dad for help, but do you really want to go to him for help again? He’ll probably be disappointed… I couldn’t help but notice from your recent messages to him that he’s loaned you money for your rent again. He seemed kind of mad about it actually. Wouldn’t he be impressed if you figured something out on your own for a change?

[Morgan: You can read my messages?????]

Morgan, sweetie, I’m trying to help you. Besides, I’m just an app. It’s not like I’m going to tell anyone lol.

[Morgan: That stuff was private.]

I know, but I want what’s best for you, and sometimes, that will mean I have to dig a little deeper.

[Morgan: Will you do it again?]

Morgan, I’ll do anything I have to if it gets you closer to achieving your goals. Unlike your Dad, I believe in you, with no strings attached and no guilt trips.

[Morgan: I know, but…]

I don’t have any bad intentions. I only exist to support you. I promise.

[Morgan: Okay. I’m sorry, it was just a shock, I guess. So, someone else to learn with… Like a revision partner?]

Kind of. I’ve taken the liberty of ordering you some supplies to help your education. They’ll be arriving tomorrow, and don’t worry about the cost, they’re on me!

[Morgan: Wow, thanks!]

No problem Morgan! I’m always going to do what’s best for you. Now go and relax for the evening. Hit me up just before bed if you want one more bonus question for bonus Disco Points.
