The host, third chapter  
In this chapter we have plot! I know, I'm shocked too. Who would have thought? It still annoyed me too much to give a normal recap. I wonder if it'll ever get to the point I will be okay with a chapter.

Dear Livejournal:

    Today I had the craziest afternoon ever. I woke up on this medical facility after being asleep for so long and there was two humans staring at me. They wanted to talk about my body’s memories. Too bad for them this human was being difficult. So annoying.

    Honestly, why can’t humans just behave properly? There hasn’t been a war ever since we took over. They should learn from us. We would never make life difficult for anybody, but not everyone can have our level of kindness.

    I asked about my brain dead human and the Healer, always so kind and charming, said that difficulties are not surprising. The human did try to kill herself and almost succeeded when the Seeker tried to invite her into our prestigious group. (How inconsiderate of her, right? Humans are so rude!) [1]
   
    I then examined the place and was amazed by the color of my doctor’s mustache: red. Right then in the middle of his face, and quite big too I missed that color so much! And his face was so kind and good. He’s truly a saint. [2] Not like the Seeker, who is an evil pocket-sized woman. Just looking at her sends chills down my spine! [3]

    I asked the wonderful healer if human hosts being difficult was a common occurrence and he told me “not often.” My gentle race usually takes children instead, they are easier to teach our ways and are so adorable. 
   
    Turns out there has only been one case. I had to insist [4] the Healer to tell me. The poor dear worries about me so.[5] A host named Kevin had overrided his Soul and was brought to the medical facility to be helped. The poor soul was not strong enough to suppress the barbarian. (I hope I get to be, since this is happening to me, yet I refuse to say anything)

    The Healer stopped his story again because he was so worried about me, the poor dear. [6] I had to press him forward to tell me the horrific details. You see guys, the human attacked beat himself up to knock the soul out and tried to take his soul out. [7] Of course the soul woke up in time and we managed to control him. They relocated the soul to a nice child, while keeping the name Kevin, and our race kindly disposed of the unruly human.
   
    I confronted them about not telling me about this risk, but the healer reminded me I knew about it and ignored the recommendation. Then I asked the Seeker why didn’t she inserted herself into this body if she wanted the information so badly and she reminded me that would be skipping and thus frowned upon. [8]

    I tried giving them all the information I knew about Melanie, that’s her name. The rendezvous point, the resistant and all that jazz, but I couldn’t give out much since this horrible meat sack just won’t lower her walls. She even took over me to ask about her cousin who wasn’t found in the area. I need to figure out how to silence her.   
   
    Lucky for me I did find out a couple of things. One was the city of Chicago (Ugh! So cold, couldn’t she find a better place?) And the other was... Jared... (SQUEEE!!) I got a nice image of him too. Not even this host’s vicious resentment could ruin the sight of my beautiful adonis. [9] I think that, if I play my card right I will get to meet him. (SQUEE!!) Wish me luck!



[1] Not kidding. Our alien gets upset about the human resisting capture from the Seeker.

[2] Can Ford just go away already?! I hate this bastard! I’m sick of him!

[3] Geez, who does that remind you off? These characters are blood swaps from the ones from Twilight! Just make them tanned and raven haired and that’s it.

[4] More like beg. Isn’t she a brave explorer of the universe? Why wouldn’t she be able to handle the story of a Host going berserk?

[5] See #2.

[6] See #5

[7] Coolest character in this book so far! If only he had tried to kill Ford I would have built a shrine in his memory.

[8] I don’t remember reading an “As you know Margaret” as heavy handed as this.

[9] Wanderer wets her panties again at the memory of this guy’s face. Not even a memory of him doing something fun or awesome. Then she gets pissy over Melani getting mad at her for ogling at her boyfriend. May I remind you this is a a gentle alien! WTF?!

Ha ha, wonderful format! XD

"Wanderer wets her panties again at the memory of this guy’s face. Not even a memory of him doing something fun or awesome."

I think you mentioned this before, but why would a wispy worm-like thing find humans attractive? Do they automatically get influenced by the body's tastes? Which would mean that she found herself also attracted to dragons and flowers and whatnot? Huh?

Thank you dear. XD I just couldn't write anything without being upset. Can we just get rid of Ford already, please? I hate the annoying prick.

Yes, I did. She personally calls him beautiful and I don't get it. She doesn't account it to her body, heck she shuts Melanie up whenever she raise protest and Wanderer's lustful thoughts. I don;t get it at all. She's a parasite! If she were a green skinned space girl then I could accept the concept, but no! Just Eeww.

Well, I think he disappears later, but I'm not sure. Hopefully... ^^;

I'm hoping it's explained later. I was under the impression that it was a result of Melanie's feelings spilling into Wanda or something, but that could just be horse puckey. I dunno.

(cross fingers) The chapters are barely fun as it is, he's not helping.


But why wouldn't Wanderer say something already about that? The way she describes him are all very personal. i do admit I prefer for it to be that, but then again maybe Meyer will say that at the end and make it into a cop=out like Jacon imprinting on DemonSpawn.
zelda_queenzelda_queen on July 6th, 2010 04:07 am (UTC)
Yeah, I'm holding hope that Meyer will reveal this all later. Like I said, I never read the book, so all I've got to go off of is what Wikipedia says. ^^;
Miss Shaolinashaolina on July 6th, 2010 04:13 am (UTC)
Ah,don't spoil me. I haven't rad anything about this book before. I want to be surprised.XD
zelda_queenzelda_queen on July 6th, 2010 06:14 am (UTC)
Don't worry, I'm holding back. XD
