The alien guru said to me, “take this and you will understand.” His pseudopod reached out and deposited a tiny white pill in my hand. I’d come all this way. I put it in my mouth and swallowed it without drinking.
I don’t know how to describe to you what happened next. I remember reaching out and handing the strange biped visitor a hwou. I remember watching his eyes close and I remember reaching out and enveloping him. I remember blending and I remember the pain of separation beginning.
That explanation doesn’t do it justice. I want to try again.
