I had a strange feeling the other day very much like the feeling this picture brings up in me as I look at it now...It was Saturday night and my brother recently bought a checker board with checkers so we could play. It has been years since we played and I have never lost a game of checkers in my entire life. I bragged about this endlessly and my brother knew it too. But this time it was different, I began to struggle. I tried to recooperate myself after the terrible mistake I made a few moves ago but it was too late. I started to sweat and my vision began to distort and became very warped. Kind of like in an anime when a character is having a panic attack. Just when I thought the pressure was too much something happened. For a split second it felt as if the vision in front of me, the veil of checkers was lifted like a curtain to reveal a most devastating sight. I was outside my body and yet I could see right through it like a x-ray scan! It was as if my entire body was made of filaments of light and I can see every organ. Everything looked like this except the head. There was something wrong. A red spot, couldn't have been more than the size of a fist, was sitting atop the frontal lobe of my brain. It had red tentacles shooting out from every direction, moving and whipping. The way it moved was nauseating. I noticed my body began moving on its own. It was playing checkers all by itself without me, or my consciousness I should say. I could see my miserable face as the red creature flailed relentlessly behind it. It was then that a horrible realization descended upon me like a wet blanket. That monster was controlling me!! I made a monumental effort to move, to do something to get rid of the parasite. It was no use. Just then, I could sense the creature noticed me. It let out the most high pitched horrid scream imaginable. Pain reverberated through my consiousness and I was instantly transported back into my body. As my perception became somewhat normal I could not shake the feeling that whatever that was, it was still inside me. Pushing buttons, pulling levers, controlling my every action, my every thought! But then I had a second thought... That it was probably my imagination so I just went on and played checkers and had a good time!
