I’ve always hated bugs since some asshole threw a dead dragonfly down my shirt when I was 12. So you can imagine how freaked out I was when I felt a tingling on my back when I was sitting in my shorts at night time in Kooreh Gaz. I looked down to see the frightfully large eyes of this fella while he was making his way up my back. I jumped to brush him off and after I did, I realized this was the “thing” that was mysteriously large and had crawled across my foot when I wasn’t capable of seeing it in the dark.
I figured I had been exposed to him enough, so I reached out a hand of friendship and let him hurry along my hands. I put him in a bag later on to take him back home with me and later on, found another of his friends who went beside him to keep him company.
When I woke up in the morning, I saw that one of them had escaped and this one was the only one loyal enough to stay and take a picture with me. I rewarded him with freedom after this picture.

Imagine this bug creeping up your back while you’re sitting mostly naked and having your roast chicken by the fire! Now you can try to sympathise with me.
