the mucus monster

What exactly is the point of The Flu? What is it good for? And don’t tell me it is my body fighting off an infection. I never had such a thing back home. And believe me, my world is a lot more dangerous than this one, at least for the individual. Mass destruction is your strong point, I got that. But the monsters in my world are proper monsters. Here you have the flu-monster. And lots of them. Indeed it is difficult to fight them off when you can’t see them. Maybe it is all a big lie and was just cursed by an evil witch. Sounds far more likely than invisible bacteria.
I looked bacteria up on the internet. Horrible. Imagine them being my size. Stomach churning, just the thought of it. A mucus golem. *shiver*
Anyway she-human got it too (the flu, not the golem) and went to see a specialist called Doctor. I really hope it’s  not that guy I say on the telly, totally confusing, that one.
So, the doctor prescribed bedrest. Only problem: she-human occupies the only bed in the flat and was adamant about not sharing. Normally I don’t care about what humans demand (that whole idea is rather funny) but I was too weak tu argue. Damn flu-monster. On the other hand: if I could take some of those home with me and pass them on to my wives, that might be the solution to the noise and the insatiable… never mind.
Mucus. Odd colour. Especially when coughed against the neighbour’s walls. He didn’t like it one bit either. She-human treated me to a hot drink called chamomile tea. Vomitted all over the place. Cleaning up while spiking a fever is no fun, trust me. She looked rather distressed. Better her than me, don’t you agree? That rhymes. I’m a poet. Disgusting, really.
