The pain is intense, searing as it travels through the network of my body. Each new invasion feels worse than the last but there’s nothing my cells can do to fight them off. I’m succumbing to the army and my defences never had a chance.
I want to fight, but I know it’ll do no good. Waging a war on the cellular level is do or die. And I’m about to die. But it’s not going to be much of a death.
There was a time I never wanted to die. A time where I wished I could live forever. I would give anything at this point to simply die. That is not going to be my fate. I will come back but will act as a vessel for transmission. The army has only one goal – to conquer.
My new eyes open and I see the world from behind a milky haze. There are shades of grey but then I see the red of living…
