This is the beginning of a short story inspired by this feature about cordyceps, fungi that invade their hosts and replace their flesh with their own.  If you have time to watch the video that goes with it is fascinating.

I don’t usually write sci-fi stories (hell I’m hardly writing at all at the moment) but I love the perverse effectiveness of this parasite and wondered how that could translate into a fiction.  This is what I’ve got so far.

He fucked her hard and when he came he grunted and said a prayer to his personal gods.

His seed planted he slept until the dawn and slipped out of her apartment and into the grey noise of the wakening day.

Solar woke with a dry mouth and a wet cunt.  The ache in her thighs reminded her of the male she’d brought home from the bar.  She felt down between her legs, feeling the slick mess of her juices mixed with the thick ejaculate of whoever she’d been fucking with.  She didn’t remember his name but that wasn’t a worry to her what she was more interested in finding out was what she had fucked.

Sniffing her fingers the sweaty stench of rotting vegetation told her that although her bedfellow had been human in shape it had not been human in design.

“Fuck” the word plopped swollen and profane out of Solar’s mouth as she forced herself out of bed and to the bathroom.

She swabbed far up into the wetness of her cunt, thankful that the alien hadn’t been a species with more invasive preferences, securing the swab in its plastic jar and dropping it into the samples bin.  This done Solar douched herself and showered.

Thanks for reading,
