Remember the excitement of opening a newly bought book? what about the emptiness when you’ve finished one? May it be the warmth of a happy ending, or the despair of a great cliffhanger, all these collective emotions that the reader has from reading a said book gives life to a creature called “Bookworms” 

Bookworms are bound to whichever book they were “born” from, their appearance often resembles their book.They are cursed creatures who survives on reader’s emotions, rumour has it that they also feed on human souls, leaving their victims as mindless, empty vessels. Bookworms can take physical form outside of the book, but they cannot survive too long being apart from their it.The book acts as their heart/ soul, therefore if the book is destroyed, the wormie will perish with it. Wormie’s physical traits varies depending on their book. Tattoos are commonly found on their bodies. as well as a number. The number corresponds to the actual page number in the book, by opening that particular page, it allows the wormies to start absorbing their victim’s emotions, therefore, the lower the number, the more powerful they are. (The pages acts as a trigger/ alarm)
