T he copy looked at Will the spoke, “Our race shares one body and mind, by merging with you the other one became a part of you and you a part of us. Once the merge was complete, the link we share allowed my body to adapt to the new DNA without overriding my own. More simply put you sent me and update that fixed my body. However, the changes were much different from what I expected, your DNA has replaced the damage to our own but it seems to have shortened the distance of our link, I can only feel your mind.” Will looked at the copy then spoke, “I see well does that mean that my DNA has to be given to every one of your people for it to work.” “No it means that we have to be close for the link to work now, we will no longer have a single mind. I can already feel the difference it’s strangely lonely, but I feel very happy i have thoughts of my own now and I can no longer read yours.” Will smiled as he laid back on the bed.
“Well I have a few hours before I have to go help out in the engine room so I’m going to get some rest I feel as if I have trained for weeks without a break.” The copy turned to the door “Well normally it takes a week for a merged being to wake up, but you did it in an hour, whatever you are it’s quite something.” Will smiled as he answered, “I’m a Cursed Human, my race is born to stand in the gap for others, and our bodies can’t die. You know I remember my Brother telling me a story about your people, he said you left the universe and built the largest research lab only second to his own. So why did you?” The copy walked to the side of the bed and sat. “We wanted children. It’s amazing that your brother knows so much about us, we thought everyone forgot about us.”
Will turned to his side and closed his eyes as he spoke. “Well he’s not the type to forget someone who helped him out, he said you gave him the idea of have an entire planet as a lab when you came to him asking how one would be built. He said if it weren’t for your people, he would have never thought to build his research system. Which I still can’t understand why he needs an entire star system to be his lab.” Will yawned as he finished speaking then drifted off to sleep.
The beeping sound of an alarm woke Will as he turned over he could see a small blinking light. As he walked to it he heard Alin’s voice “Will we will be dropping out for the first cool down cycle in five minutes can you join me in the engine room to get started on the upgrades.” “Right I’m on my way now.” Will responded as he opened the door and walked out; he looked down at his hands as he walked thinking. “I think I will need to uses Alin’s form but I wonder if I can just use his extra hands.” As he thought, he heard a voice. “Yes you can; you are different from us you can do things we can’t you can combine the DNA of any living thing into your own to modify your own body.”
