The Monster Inside

Post by Notorious Joker on Fri Aug 17, 2012 1:07 pm



"Why did you nail Mrs. White's cat to the porch, Jack?"
The ten year old boy had been staring into his lap ever since arriving in Dr. Quinn's office. He didn't look up or give any sign that he'd heard the question.
Dr. Quinn sighed. "Do you know why you're here, Jack?
"To get better" His voice was low, unemotional.
"Then you know what you did wrong?"
"Of course I do." His head came up, eyes met hers firmly for a second before dropping his head back down. "I'm not a dope."
"No, your not. You're very smart." Smart enough to have avoided being caught. Something within the boy was crying out for help.
"Did Mrs. White do something that made you mad?"
"Nope."
"Did the cat scratch you? I know how much that hurts."
"Nope."
"Were you mad at your mother or father? Did you think this would make them sorry?"
"Nope."
"Well, why did you do it then?"
"Had to."
"You had to, huh? Why did you have to?"
Jack just shrugged.
Dr. Quinn repressed the urge to go over and shake the boy. "Jack, we all feel the urge to do bad things at times. You don't have to be upset about that. We're not in control of how we feel about things. But we must be responsible for what we actually do. I understand that your just a boy Jack, but you do know what you did was wrong, right?"
"Yes." His voice was almost a whisper.
"Well, my job here at Arkham Asylum, is to help you learn to handle those bad thoughts. Would you like to be able to do that?"
"Yes." His voice was a bit louder this time, the first emotional tone he expressed. Jack had raised his head. He stared at her with a distinctive expression on his face.
Dr. Quinn realized she'd found the key. "Do you have bad feelings alot?"
"All the time." Jack's eyes darted away, but he didn't drop his head. "There's something... inside of me that wants to do terrible things to people."
"Because your mad at them?"
"No."
"No?... Then why?"
"Just because." He licked his lips and squirmed in his seat. "I told you, It's something inside of me that wants to do it. I don't want to. I hate the things I do sometimes."
"Then why do you do them, Jack?"
"Because there's this bad thing inside of me and if I don't do things to keep it happy, I'm afraid it'll get out and then it'll do really bad things. Terrible things." Dr. Quinn tried to keep the satisfaction from showing on her face. At last she'd gotten the boy to give shape to the inner turmoil that was tormenting him. At last she saw the way to relieving that tension and helping the boy adjust.
"Jack, have you ever played with balloons?"
"Sure." His voice was tentative, obviously puzzled by this change of direction. "I always wanted to be a clown."
"What happens if you blow a balloon up too much?"
"It pops."
"Well, people are a little like balloons sometimes. If we keep our feelings all bottled up inside, there's no room for all the other feelings and emotions we have each day. Pretty soon there's so much inside that it has to get out."
"But I do know, Jack. And right now I want you to let out all the bad stuff inside you and promise me you'll never let it get stored up like that again."
Jack looked uncertain, but more hopeful than at any time since she'd started treating him.
"You sure It's all right? You promise?"
"I promise. Just let it out and you'll be fine. This is the beginning of what's yet to come, Jack!"
Jack focused his attention on a knife lying on the surface of her desk which she used to slice open sealed envelopes. Jack then nodded, sat back and smiled...

This probably wouldn't be a good idea considering the Joker is a trade marked character and is considered property of DC comics. Hahaha...
