An attractive but sheltered grad student who just finished her masters in psychology gets a position as an intern in a major city. Where she was raised there were far to few people to supply a hospital with enough psych patients to even consider having one. She was exceptionally attractive but also very shy and very sheltered. She grew up on a farm and most of her free time she spent reading. Much of her intense loneliness can probably be given as the motivation she had to make a career in psychology.
She had dated a few guys before but between her social anxiety and the little time she had to spare as the farm and her studies took up most of her time made the few guys she dated nothing more than footnotes in her life.
She was terrified about moving to a big city but new to make a career in this field she would have to make the move. The move went smooth but in the psych ward she went through some real culture shock. Some of the patients truly had taken leave of there senses while others did not seem to belong there.
Now if you wish we can make her develop an interest in woman or we can stick to having her interest in men.
One of the higher functioning patients always seemed to be there to put the brakes on a those occassions where she was dealing with those patients who were explosive and seemed to be on the verge of becoming violent. In spite of this patients illness which landed him her in the mental hospital she was amazed at his ability to difuse sitiuations with nothing more than just the right words and a gently touch to sooth the edges of of whatever patient needed smoothing around the edges. She was enamored by her or his charm and easy going manner in which nothing ever seemed to phase him.
She was also quite attracted to him as her looks were more than easy on the eyes and just seeing this person made her find an inner calm no matter what she was feeling. This patient that always came to her rescue was not one of her charges and of his condition she new little other than he was being released and some said he never should have been here to begin with.
One afternoon in which she is having an especially bad day she sees him on the street and they strike up a conversation. As per usual he was easy going, kind, and very charming. She saw no harm in agreeing to meet him in public for some coffee so when the question came up she said yes.
From here begins his or her obsession with the intern and it can go many ways. Would love your input if anything comes to mind.
