Parasite Dreams

"It's a fucking worm," she said, wrinkling her nose. The tiny creature's tubelike body writhed in her hand. "How do I take it?"

"You don't. It takes you," the fat man said. "Just-- here." He reached out, pinched the thing between two ham-fingers, and dropped it on the crook of her elbow. It immediately found the heat of her pulsing blood and plunged its head into her flesh. The girl yelped.

"Shut up. It only hurts for a second."

The thing drilled its way into her vein, leaving a tiny drop of dark reddish-brown blood behind. "How long--" started the girl, then blinked twice and began to slump. The fat man caught her and dropped her onto a cushion.

"Fuck, boss, no warnings?" said the other man.

"She didn't need 'em," said the fat man, lighting another cigarette. "She's already getting it. The parasite dreams."

One of the boys in the corner started moaning. He must have been only twelve. The fat man walked over to him. "Get the piss-pail," the fat man told the other. "Let's drain the eggs out of this fucker."

This is the last of the three short pieces I wrote for Strange Machine. The one I actually submitted is here, and the other one I wrote is here.

I've been reading some of your pieces that you have on here. I think you are a very good writer, nothing like I've ever read. I found your journal through a friend of a friend. Keep up the good work, I look forward to reading more.

Thanks for the nice comments! I am still working on my writing, and I'll certainly be posting more of it here in the future.
