Carolina's point of view
I woke up. I slowly opened my eyes and found I was lying in the back of a van and I can hear people talking. I slowly turn my head and see it's the alien's that caught me. It feels like I'm listening with ear phones on. Everything sounds fuzzy and muffled. Then my hearing clears and I hear what the alien's are saying.
"Humans are so violent. The good humans are horrible at all but they can't be left to run around." a female "person" said.
I saw a man and he nodded.
"Oh definitely. I think Earth will be much better once all the humans become hosts. And then of course there is the problem of resistant hosts?"
"If the Soul can't get the human under control then we would just have dispose of them. We can't have resistant hosts or it would just turn into like what happened at the Sea Weed planet." the woman said a little sadly. I felt happy for the Sea Weeds. No-one would want to become a host of these parasites. I shivered.
The man sighed. "The poor Sea Weeds. Maybe we should have tried a silent approach or tried to make it like it wasn't a bad thing..."
"Well they decided to starve themselves. Such a waste of life and we could save made their planet a better place. But we have control of Earth and no-one is dying so I guess that's good." she said. The man nodded.
"I had a bit of trouble with my host but I got control. The human in the back will be on of us soon." I panicked a little. What was I going to do? I didn't want to be a parasite. I moved slightly trying to make minimal movements. Then I slowly sat up and crawled towards the back doors of the van. I slowly tested the handle but it was stiff and would no doubt make a noise. I put my hand on something I think a bar and tried to move it. I sighed.
"Here's the Healing Facility. The human will be out of her misery soon." the woman and pulled into the drive. This time I bother to be quiet. I pulled the handle and it groaned in protest and then I pulled down the bolt. Of course this made noise and the man turned around and sprayed that stuff making the air thick with Sleep. I dropped and fell into a deep sleep.
My last thought was please be safe Carter.
- Healer's point of view
I had just finished tending to a Soul who had cut her host on a pocket knife, when 2 Seeker's came in with a sedated young woman. They put her on the table.
Healer Born into Summer. We found this human in a shop stealing food. Seeker Starlight caught her before she jumped off a waterfall. She woke up in the van and tried to escape but Seeker sedated her again."
I nodded. Stray humans are being found and they would rather die than become a host. It brought memories from the Sea Weed planet. The Seeker's left and I went to get a cryotank with a hibernating Soul. I went back in and sorted out the equipment. A scalpel, Heal and the spray stuff to prevent blood loss. The young woman was heavily sedated and looked so innocent. I would just leave her but that wouldn't be right. I sighed and turned her onto her stomach and moved her soft auburn hair out of the way. I paused and stroked it some more. I stopped because if I paused any longer she might wake up. But she was pretty. I prepared the cryotank and it pulsed as the Soul came out of hibernation. While I waited I stroked the woman's hair again.
The cryotank was ready so I reluctantly opened the tank and cut into the woman's soft neck. Then I gently took the Soul out and directed her to the cut in the base of her neck. The Soul went in to the offered space and I closed the turned the wiman over onto her back. I waited for her to wake up.
- Diamond Night's point of view
After I attached to all the nerve ensing and wired myself into my new host's brain I prepared myself for the memories. It would be the last memory the host had experienced.
My host's name was Carolina and she had been living in a cave with 9 other wild humans. She had gone out to get food from the supermarket and come back but she had been caught and to prevent herself from being a host she had tried to jump over the edge of Crest Falls and drown. I pulled away from it. Another one came and this one was inside the van. 2 Seekers were talking and she had woken up. She had tried to escape but she had made noise and the male Seeker had sprayed her with Sleep.
I. woke up and a male Healer was standing over me. He smiled re assuringly. "Hello welcome to Earth."
I blinked in the bright light.
Ugh ... What happened?
I froze. Was that me?
Who else would it be?
I swallowed. I looked at the Healer who was tidying away the equipment.
"Um... Healer? Are hosts supposed to talk?" I asked. Was it me or was that a glimmer of hope on his face.
"She speaks?" he asked hopefully.
"I think so. I'm a little frightened. Humans are dangerous and I've heard about Souls going crazy..." I trailed off.
"Don't worry its probably just your thoughts or memories. If there is someone else in your head then come back... Hopefully not." he said under his breath.
Do you want me to have a resistant host?" I asked. Healer shook his head.
"Of course not. But I didn't have to put you in her. She was innocent enough. Shes strong enough... I have a patient now so you better go." he said. His words frightened me a little but I got up off the table and walked out casted a glance at the Healer who kept his eyes down.
He likes me.
Who are you? I asked shakily.
Carolina. Thats all you need to know. Who are you?
Diamond Night. Your supposed to be here. How can you be here?
How could he put you inside me? He liked me... Your just a parasitic silver worm.
I flinched at her words. I'm not that ... Im a Soul...
Your not. Your a parasite. A parasite is someone like you who takes over its host. Your silver and you look like a worm.
"I'm not a worm!" I shouted. Everyone looked up at me.
See now everyone thinks you have gone crazy... Crazy silver worm...
"Miss are you alright?" a receptionist said. I nodded and made a bee line for the entrance.
Outside I breathed in. It felt better than the stuffed up atmosphere of the waiting room even though the air conditioning was on.
Lets get something straight. I only let you talk when I want you to talk. Your not influencing me anyway to leave my body. Im staying.
I felt Carolina raise an eyebrow even though she is just in my head.
I am the owner of this body so I choose whether to talk or not. Also I want you to help me to your parasitic race off the planet.
Never! Souls love this planet and they are making it better. I am not taking them off it, it would be cruel and humans would just destroy the planet again. I'm not helping you. Just stay quiet or I will get the Seeker's to dispose of your body.
Oh yeah like the Healer would allow that. He likes me and my family loves me so you won't even get to see the Seekers.
I stayed quiet. Walking home Carolina kept taunting me saying I had to get the Souls off the Earth or something bad might happen. I sighed.
You don't want anything like what happened on the Sea Weed planet... If you have been there... My family and friends will just send out something and all the humans will starve to death no matter what you do. Then it would result in a 2nd mass suicide. You don't want that do you?
You can't do that. The humans mind has been erased and there consciousness has gone. Humans wouldn't be able to starve themselves and the Souls won't let them.
Oh you just watch. If you don't get the parasites off Earth the humans will die. I'm pretty sure that they would rather die than become hosts to you.
I shut her out. She had no idea what she was talking about. I went into the shop and brought some food then went back to the apartment climbed into bed. I needed some rest.
So what do you think?
