Am I the only one extremely bothed by the fact that a Caelipsychus lives inside Merlin? It's parent showed up at the end, and didn't kill the humans. If they value life why the heck would they ruin one by leeching off a person? "Naturally, even after they are fully grown, they wait until the end of their host’s natural life span to separate.” What? Why? If they're fully grown and no longer need a host, leave it. Let the host finally live a normal life.
Bleh, humans took their home, and that was wrong. But Caelipsychus's seem like assholes to me.

That aside... this is a really good story. And it's nice to see a story that's a bit long for once rather than three paragraphs.

I don't think they can leave the host without killing it. I thought the thing at the end was the larva after it grew-up.

They don't see their presence as a hindrance. Humans are not the native species to this planet, so more than likely they do not understand their inability to communicate empathically as they do.
