For a while now I've been debating with myself as to whether or not I should post my rather amateur stories to the site. Finally decided why not. This is not my first story but the one I decided to post.
Part of the reason behind this one was I had heard about how it's supposed to be possible to use the power of suggestion in stories to add extra affect. Pretty sure I failed if it is even true but hey, was worth a try.
"People call me crazy. Tell me I'm wrong. But I'm not crazy, just know the truth. See, there are these creatures. Spiders actually. Don't know where they came from or why they act the way they do. All I know, is they use us."
"They use us?"
"Yep. There's one on you right now. On me too. That itching on the back of your head, that's one. Lump on the back of your neck is how you know you've been bitten."
"Why can't I see them?"
"It's their poison or venom or whatever it is. It hides them from our eyes somehow."
"Why do they do this, bite us, hide from us."
"I dunno. "
"Surely they have reason."
"They surely do. I don't know. How would I know!"
"Ok, I believe you. How did you see them?"
"I've never fully seen one. They are always just outside view. Corner of the eye stuff. I've met people though, people who have seen them. Couple were even scientists. They told me a scan of the brain stem showed evidence of the bite."
"What kind of evidence?"
"They said that there was some kind of build up, it causes itching. They used a heap of technical, medical type jargon. Others have seen them. Been told certain drugs block the effect. Marijuana is one"
"How should I know! I'm just a bloody truck driver!"
Behind a one way mirror.
"It's getting harder to cover up after these people."
"More are showing up."
"Where is the immunity coming from?"
"It's not an immunity."
"Then how do you explain this?"
"None can see the Attalory."
"Not yet anyway."
"Think that bit about marijuana is legit?"
"Don't know enough to say for sure."
"The Queen will need to know."
Back inside the room.
"This gentleman will take you to a place you can rest."
"That itch annoying you?"
