Chronicles of Myron S. Drake 1Vienna, 15th August 1875
After a couple of years I came to realise that the creature that had "attached" itself to me was no alone. Others like her were clinging to fellow humans, the signs were obvious. I decided to act upon this and turn the spear around. From a helpless albeit willing victim I was going to get some advantages from the situation.
Most victims had no idea about the power that this unholy association held. They only gained the "frisson" and a total dependance on their parasites.
