DAD’S PSYC EVALUATION

(This is the script for the Audio bonus feature)

THERAPIST

Mr. Darke, do you know why you’re here?

 

DARKE

Every three months, for my pills. I have to see you every ninety days.

 

THERAPIST

Yes, you do have regular visits, but today is something more.

 

DARKE

They want to take her away again.

 

THERAPIST

Who, Mr. Darke?

 

DARKE

CPS. They want to take Allyson away.

 

THERAPIST

Why do you think CPS believes she would be better off somewhere else?

 

DARKE

Because someone saw me

 

THERAPIST

Saw you doing what?

 

DARKE

Talking. Talking to something that wasn’t there.

 

THERAPIST

And what did you see?

 

DARKE

I know! I know fairies aren’t real. Monsters don’t exist.

 

THERAPIST

What did you see?

 

DARKE

It had wings. Kinda scary, but not like him – not like the first one.

 

THERAPIST

Mr. Darke, that’s the second time you’ve touched that necklace. I’ve seen you wear it before. Is it special to you.

 

DARKE

It was hers.

 

THERAPIST

Carols?

 

DARKE

She gave it to Allyson in the ambulance.

 

THERAPIST

Why do you wear it?

 

DARKE

It was hers.

 

THERAPIST

Does Allyson ever wear it?

 

DARKE

It was hers.

 

THERAPIST

That was the first night you saw one of the creatures, wasn’t it.

 

DARKE

I know monsters don’t exist. The pills help. Can’t I have more?

 

THERAPIST

We’ll talk about the medication in a moment. The fairy you saw that first night, you haven’t seen him again have you.

 

DARKE

No. He was the worst. He took…

 

THERAPIST

What would happen if you saw him again.

 

DARKE

I’d go crazy – crazier.

 

THERAPIST

You’re not crazy, Mr. Darke.

 

DARKE

I see fairies and monsters!

 

THERAPIST

You’re not crazy, you’re ill. And there is medicine. The medicine helps, right?

 

DARKE

Yes.

 

THERAPIST

Then why didn’t you take the pills last week?

 

DARKE

(Under breath) I did.

 

THERAPIST

What?

 

DARKE

I wanted to be normal for a day. It was Allie’s birthday. I wanted her to have a real dad.

 

THERAPIST

Mr. Darke, Mr. Darke – you keep looking over my shoulder. What? What do you see?

 

DARKE

Nothing.

 

THERAPIST

What do you see?

 

DARKE

Nothing. Monsters don’t exist!

 

THERAPIST

Mr. Darke, did you take your medication today?

 

DARKE

Monsters don’t exist. None of them exist. I’m not crazy!
