((Disclaimer: I don't own Phineas and Ferb, blah blah etc. This came to me after watching Invasion of the Ferb Snatchers. Sorry if it's so short. Will make sense eventually.))

Summary: Oneshot. Right after Invasion of the Ferb Snatchers. Ferb reflects on Candace's accusation that he is an alien, and how it's not that far from the truth.

Night had fallen over the Flynn-Fletcher household, and in the two brothers' bedroom, Ferb lay wide awake in his bed. The events of the day flashed back at him. He remembered feeling tense at Phineas's proclamation, fearing he'd been close to finding out.

Ferb, old pal, our dear sister here thinks you may be a sinister extraterrestrial visitor, his red-haired "brother's" voice rang innocently in his mind. Even if he wasn't his brother, he'd taken a liking to the boy, and would hate to have to destroy them. And his host gave him enough death threats daily.

He was strong, Esklin gave him credit. Most hosts wouldn't be resisting him as much, or would be denying it, or would have long since had their wills crushed.

A warm weight by his side made him turn, looking at the teal platypus sleeping beside him. He never understood the idea of having pets, riding it off as a human trait. He'd already known for sometime that the monotreme displayed a hidden, near-human like intelligence. Esklin wondered where it disappeared to all day. He had voiced his suspicions of it being an Andalite bandit nothlit to Visser 3, who had ridden him off as paranoid. Perhaps Esklin was paranoid; then again, paranoia in war kept one alive.

Being silent had it's benefits, as Esklin didn't worry of saying the wrong thing. The boy had known to keep his tongue in check, and it wasn't too hard for Esklin to copy either.

Yes, Esklin had a good life, he thought, as he rolled over to sleep.

If only he could get Visser 3 off his tail.

((For those of you who don't know, this is a crossover with the Animorphs series. I'll sum it up: Ferb's a Controller. He has an alien in his head. So he really is an alien. Thanks for reading. Random Author is out, Peace!))
