The Koobecaf Parasite

The Koobecaf Parasite

A Story by GC

a little piece hidden in a folder, squirrelled away on my laptop.



I really don't know when I realised I had the bloody thing. Hell, truthfully, I  can’t even remember when I didn’t have it. One day I was okay, the next thing I knew- it had sucked the life out of me.

 I was as good as done.


Dead man walking.


If I was a horse, you’d have shot me.

If I was a show, you’d have cancelled me after the pilot.

I found myself on occasion, just staring into space, waiting, but nothing would happened. My eyes would glaze over as my appetite took off. It seemed to feed on anything that was available. It made me eat until I just ate for the sake of eating. The parasite sucked me dry, and gave me nothing but frustration in return. It promised so much at first, I was actually excited when I discovered it. I researched others infected by the parasite, and to my horror they too were now trapped with this monkey on there back.

There was only two outcomes-

Choice one , give in and search for others to infect with this brain eating bug.

Choice two- delete my account.

 I deleted my account.

 I am a survivor folks. I know their are others out there- Be patient, I will find you.
