Back in my university years, I was taking a course in neuropsychology. They showed us a scan of a brain and I was confused. Why were they showing this to us? The professor pointed at two small lights in the middle of the brain scan. They were the eyes of a brain parasite. I’ve been haunted by the image and all these years later, I wrote a story to express that called Colony, published in decomP, one of my favorite literary magazines. Thanks to Editor Jason Jordan for publishing this story!
