My mind screams to stop as my boy, my son cries out “Daddy!” Soon his blood floods my throat, quenching the thirst and needs of these parasites that have taken me. His dead body held in the arms that used to be mine. Though my pain and anguish are still my own. These accursed things haven’t stopped me from thinking. My mind burns in hatred of myself, of these creatures. I’d hoped I could have been stronger, could have pushed away and fought the paralysis of free will. Yet the agonizing moments of taking my son’s life cannot stay my hand or my teeth. My stomach churns as they feed, releasing their hold on me. My stomach warm with blood, my movements become my own again. They are still in there waiting. I can feel them moving.
