It was one of those nights. I saw them coming for me, growing larger and larger with each step they took. I ran with all my might but the aliens caught me anyway. I screamed and struggled to be released from their grasp. Suddenly I remembered it was only a dream. I woke up with a start, and to my horrific surprise they were still there, smiling at my attempt to escape. "We've watched over you many nights Kayla, but now we have observed your magnificent, massive brain enough!"said one of the aliens. "Yes," another one said, "you have all of the components we need to continue our studies." I began to cry and screamed out, "Why me? There are millions of geniuses in the world but you choose me!! I'm just another ordinary girl!!" An alien, who I assumed was the leader of this project, stepped forward. "Geniuses overwork their brains, my dear. You on the other hand have all of the essential materials we need." "Will you let me live?" I questioned. "Yes, we will let you live.

"Wow," I said sadly, "without my hippocampus life would be really hard.I'd be lost all the time, and I wouldn't gain any knowledge. I dont think I could cope without it, because I would feel like an outcast. I wouldn't have any special memories, and I wouldnt have any friends. "True," he claimed,"however, you also wouldn't remember painful experiences in your past, so you'd have a very optimistic outlook on life." I laughed, "That's a nice way to put things in perspective, carry on." He continued,"Your cerebral cortex is responsible for the most complex mental functions, such as thinking and planning."I asked," So, basically I'd be a dummy without it?"
