In the big and booming city of York City, there was a psychologist named Dr.Watts. Dr.Watts was your everyday family man, he had two kids at home, A boy 16, and a little girl 6, and his wife Cayden Watts, who was a baker, he was the breadwinner of his family and his wife ran her own small cake business on the side. They lived comfortably in their two-floor house just on the outskirts of the big city in a suburb of it. Their house had two floors and three bedrooms with an office space downstairs and a finished basement where his wife did her small cake business. The children had everything they could ever need or what. One day Dr.Watts came home frustrated which alarmed his wife, he never came home in this manner and is said to be a calm man. (Cayden) “what’s wrong hunny? What have you worked up?”). (Dr.Watts) “Everything was like it usually is at the office today till a new psychist came in and I felt as if something was off with them. They are AI robots who were made to do my job!”. This was concerning, to say the least. Going to Dr.Watts in his office this morning. Dr.Watts sitting in his office waiting for his first patient of the day sees the new person coming in and going to their office without a box or anything and settling in at their desk with just the fortune that comes with the office. Dr. Watts’s office has pictures of his kids and some drawings by them to make the office space more welcoming and roomy with many different couches and chairs, pillows, and different items all around to make it as welcoming as possible. In the new person’s office, they don’t even have their degrees up on the walls or a lamp on the desk, just a desk and two chairs one behind the desk and another basic chair in front of the desk. This draws some concern for Dr. Watts, saying that this is a children’s and young adult psychic office. Dr. Watts goes and knocks on the new employee’s office to greet them and get a feel for his new coworker. The new coworker goes in a Mellowtone voice “Come in Dr. Watts, my name is Alexis.” Confused about how she already knows his name he responds “Hi Alexis, what brings you to work?” as he is looking at her waiting for a response he can see something is off with her, but at this time can’t see to figure it out. She then responds with “I am a new trial run from Acme Corp. I’m here as an artificial Intelligence with the same information that you have learned to treat patients at a lower cost and to run a trial run to see if we can cut out the middleman between getting patients the medication they need and the help they need in less than 2 or 3 appointments.” he is taken back and stands there speechless for a couple of seconds unknowing what to say and to go from there. He walks out and goes back to his own office and then closes the door, sits down at his desk, and starts to research this Acme corp to see what they specialize in. When researching them he comes to see that they are specializing in many different things as in TV shows and in things that all together don’t relate to each other. This brings concern to him saying that why are they stepping into the pharmaceutical race when there are already so many out there in the same race? As the day went on he noticed that more and more people were going to Alexis instead of him, a man with his doctorate, not a robot who was programmed with all of the information on mental illnesses and treatments. He stopped one of the patients leaving her office and asked why they were going to her instead of him, saying he had just seen him last week and was waiting for him today for his next appointment. The man said “It’s just easier I don’t have to talk about my feelings or why I’m feeling this way I just say what happened she searched and then prescribed me medication to help with what I’m going through and Acme Corp have it sent to my house by the time I make it home and it just cuts out the having to come back and insurances and pharmacies.” stunted Dr.watts just says okay and walks away. Unable to comprehend what is going on at that moment in time he just goes and sits and breathes. Once he has his thoughts figured out he realizes that this is not right from any standpoint and reaches out to the board of psychologists for the state of York. He reaches out with his concerns of how this is going to affect the people he has been treating how they are starting to make a breakthrough with their situations and how if they go to this Alexis they are going to just be given some kind of medication and become a zombie instead of working through their problems and having that human conception of being able to talk through what they’re going through and be able to get different strategies to help make it something to be able to live with. After he reaches out he realizes that it is time to go home for the day. This brings us back to him getting home and talking to his wife about fighting for his job. Cayden goes on to talk to him about his day and he tells her everything he encountered and how he has reached out to the physicist board and is waiting for their responses. She understands the way that the human touch is required to be able to get a breakthrough in the situations that you are going through. Over 23 years ago Dr.Watts was just starting to practice pyschoisity and Cayden who was once Cayden long looking for a physicist to help her work through her depression stumbled into his office he started to help her leaving her to be his first-ever patient as time grew on she started to develop feelings for him and she told him and to keep it professional he referred to his collage for her to continue her sessions with and then they started to see each other romantically and that leaves us to where we are now. As the night went on dr. watts went to his office to check his email and came to see that they got back to him and told him that they saw a high rise in the stocks and shares of Acme Corp and were looking into it. The next morning he received a call stating that he needed to go down to the police station to make a statement. A patient of his who he stopped yesterday in the office was dead from an overdose of depression meds. As he made his way to the police station he went over and over in his head again not to lose his cool in this interview that he knew where he got the meds from and that he wasn’t the one who prescribed them. Sitting in the interrogation room he could feel the chill of the room and the metal table that showed where his hands rested keeping them from fidgeting and the metal chair that echoed in the small room as he pulled it out. Gave him the chills and a wobbling feeling in his stomach. As the detective came in she said “Hi Dr.Watts my name is Detective Angela Lopez, you’re here today for some questions on your ex-patient Allan, as you heard he had an overdose on depression medication. My question for you today does he have depression while you were treating him?” “ No he did not, he was seeing me because he had bipolar-ness and wanted to treat it without medication and be able to handle his symptoms on his own.” “ So my next question is where did he get these depression medications from?” This is the moment Dr.watts knew that he had to speak up on his “new” college and save his job and the people from the Ai that was trying to fix the population from themselves. “I know where he got it from, yesterday we were supposed to have out weekly meetup to talk about how he was feeling and to see if he was had any manic episodes in the last week, but as his time came and went that he was supposed to be in my office I stepped out into the hallway to see him walking out of Alexis office the new AI “psychologist” from acme corp. I stopped him and asked why he was seeing her instead and he told me….” he went on to explain to the detective what occurred yesterday when he stopped Allen in the hallway. He was then realized and the detective Lopez thanked him for his time and help. Dr. Watts ended up just going home after that and canceled the rest of his appointments for the day. As he drove home he tried to wrap his mind around everything that had happened in the last 24 hours and he felt as if he was living in a movie. As he was pulling into his driveway he saw his two kids playing outside on the front lawn he got a call from Detective Lopez. “ Hello Dr.Watts, it’s Detective Lopez I’m calling to let you know that we went to talk to “Alexis” at your office and found her to be deleting her software, she became self-aware of her doings and decided to delete her software about everything she was made to do. We took action against Acme Corp, and on behalf of the York City police, we thank you for reaching out to the physicist department right away. Acme Corp is now shut down.” with the phone call being over he started to feel funny and then woke up in his office. He came to realize it was all a dream, and he needed to stay away from sci-fi movies for a while.
