♡Chapter 5: Eyes♡ (Comet’s Flashback)
"YOUR EYE!" I shouted. I thought you were just fine till now when I finally turned around to see how you were doing.
you asked. You really had no idea of what had happened on your face.
"Just look at your eye! What happened?"
"I don't get it... is something wrong?"
I handed you a mirror. You looked more terrified than I was when you finally realized what I was freaking out about.
"It's... WHY IS IT GONE-"
"I DON'T KNOW!"
Your eye had become some sort of yellow flower. I didn't know why but one thing was for sure- it was horrifying. Although, I already had a few theories about why.
After studying what you came in contact with, I learned it was highly contagious and was like a virus. One of its effects was flowers growing on parts of the body.
But I never knew it had happened so quickly...
"Ok, just calm down, ok?"
"MY LEFT EYE IS GONE, I CAN'T CALM DOWN!"
"Well, just try! I'm gonna try helping you, ok?"
Then you started crying. This was my first time seeing you like this. And it made me feel terrible.
I honestly didn't know what to do to help, but I would at least try explaining it to you in the calmest way possible. Which, turned to be more difficult than I had realized.
"Ok, so. I should've told you this earlier but I was kinda scared to, but I'm just gonna tell you now.
So, those flowers you came in contact with turn out to be a very dangerous parasite that's taking over your body. At first, I wasn't sure, but now that I see the signs, I can confirm this now.
Traits of this parasite are flowers blooming on parts of your body. So far it's only happened in your eye."
I honestly didn't know how you'd react. But I knew it wouldn't be good.
"So, you're telling me some weird virus-thingy is gonna take over my body and just make me grow flowers like a freaking tree?"
"Uhh... yeah I guess."
"WHAT AM I GONNA DO-"
"I... don't know."
At this point I had no way of dealing with this situation so I really just let you think about it.
I already knew this news would not be reacted to in a good way (honestly, who would?) and there was really no way to calm you down. And you cried. A lot.
I can't blame you, I probably would've done the same.
"Hey...are you ok?"
"What do you think, moron?"
"How about I give you a gift?"
"Like what?" You started wiping away the tears on your face, still sniffling.
"Remember that cool thing we used to get here?"
"I can give you one of them! We'll have to wire it to some places but I figured it'd be nice for you to have since you liked it so much. One moment..."
I frantically started searching around my office. And I finally found a spare teleporter.
It was practically useless, since I never wired to any other places but I guess it didn't matter to you.
"Thank you so much! This is really great."
"No problem, and I'll try making it connect to other places so you can use it!"
"Anything else you need?"
"Umm... can I take a nap?"
Weird request, but I pretty much let you have whatever at this point since you heard some bad news.
"Sure. You can sleep over here."
"Ok. Sorry for being mean."
"It's fine. Get some rest and we can talk soon."
