The thought penetrated Joseph’s skull like a hammer. Repeating over and over.
His body jerked as he took a step. His knees popped and crackled as if they didn’t want to obey. His feet dragged. His eyes rolled in his skull. A gurgle rumbled in his throat.

He walked to the edge of the building. Below him, people looked like ants. The pain exploded as a long stem burst from his skull. A bulb opened, spores pouring out of it and floating onto the people. He collapsed, the parasite’s job done.
