The Tweedlebug

The Tweedlebugs start falling from Mars, and a kindly gentleman decides to take one home. Soon, it begins to bore into his thoughts and dreams.

I can’t even tell you where I got the spark for this story, but I think I got the word tweedlebug from a botched memory of a Cheers episode (S10E16 “One Hugs, the Other Doesn’t”) — the one where Nanny G sings “The Doodlebug Song”.

That’s the only thing this story has in common with Cheers, though. In this story, a man finds a strange alien bug and takes it home. It soon begins to bore into his thoughts and dreams.

This story is Teen Rated.

As always, everything here is free to read, but if you’d like buy me a can of cola or leave me a couple bucks for my hard work and effort, I won’t say no: Of course, sharing my work on Facebook, Twitter, etc. would help me even more.

Thank you for stopping by and reading. I hope you like the story.
