Two Minds

I wrote this in response to the Thimbleful Thursday prompt "Two Minds". I think this one is more than a bit creepy.

“The other, it’s alive. Is it a what or a who?”

“We’re almost hungry enough that it doesn’t matter.”

“We’ve talked about this before. We don’t eat people.”

“We shouldn’t eat people – there’s a difference. The body requires fuel.”

“Sometimes we need to delay gratification and satiation. People are more than fuel,”

“The female ones can be mates, I concede that. The healers are useful.”

“What about cooks? You’re the one who keeps going on about fuel.”

“I can eat just about anything raw. We can eat just about anything raw.”

“Many foods make more efficient sources of fuel and nutrients once they have been cooked.”

“I will concede that too. A diet of uncooked salad alone cannot sustain the body. There simply aren’t enough hours in the day to consume enough of that to sustain the body.”

“The body is a large one, but we are getting away from the subject of the other. What are we going to do?

“If you want to know if it is a person, then you should talk to it.”

“I should talk to it?”

“You’re the one who cares whether it is a person.”

“You are right, I will greet it.” “Hi. Are you okay?”
