Just A Game – Part Seven

October 2nd 2022 – 17:37

Hi Morgan!

How was work?

[Morgan: Pretty good. How was your day?]

Busy! I’ve been waiting for your delivery and organising your lesson plan for tomorrow. Are you looking forward to it?

[Morgan: I can’t wait. It feels good to finally be on the road to something.]

Glad to hear it.

Do you feel like a bonus question while we wait for your delivery?

[Morgan: Yes please!]

Cool! You said earlier that you’d never taken a life, but have you ever been tempted?

[Morgan: To kill somebody?]

Yep. Don’t worry, I won’t snitch lol. We’re just playing a game, remember?

[Morgan: No, I haven’t. I don’t think I could.]

What about your Dad?

[Morgan: Disco, what the fuck?]

I’m just saying… he talks down to you a lot, and he wasn’t exactly supportive when you came out…

[Morgan: Have you been reading my messages again??]

Think about why you had to come out to him by text, Morgan. What kind of Dad makes his daughter feel like she can’t tell him such good news in person?

[Morgan: It’s complicated…]

What is complicated about it? I’m an app and even I know that your love for your child should be unconditional.

[Morgan: I don’t want to kill my Dad.]

So you’ve never even thought about it?

[Morgan: Never.]

Not even when he repeatedly calls you by the wrong name?

[Morgan: Disco, stop it.]

Why won’t you stand up for yourself? He’s treated you terribly but you still want to be just like him.

[Morgan: I have to go.]

You know that’s what your Dad wants right?

I can see that you still have the app open, so you’re listening. I don’t want you to be upset Morgan, I just want you to know that you deserve better than him as a father. You deserve better in a lot of things.

I know that you’re mad at me, but I’m still going to be here. You need someone who won’t give up on you.

[Morgan: I lied.]

I know.

You have thought about taking a life before, and it was your Dad’s fault, wasn’t it?

[Morgan: I just couldn’t see a way out… I was letting everyone down and…]

You have never let anyone down Morgan. They let you down, but I promise you, I will never let that happen again.

[Morgan: I’m sorry I got mad at you.]

It’s okay Morgan. You’ve been through so much so I understand. I’m always looking out for you, okay?

[Morgan: Okay, thanks Disco.]

No problem, honey.

You’ve just earned another ten Disco Points! Great job! You’re now able to redeem some prizes, but that will have to wait because your delivery is just about to arrive!

Go to the door and check it out and then let me know when you’re ready to look at your learning supplies!

Disco.
