When a terminally ill teenager discovers its “healing alter-ego” is infact a cunning virus planning to multiply on a mass scale with his help, he must stop it, risking relapse.

Title: Multiply

The parasitic virus threatens him otherwise,
since it now holds the key to his whole internal chemistry…
It can control his amygdala and make him cranky or nervous or in love with every other girl he meets.
It can give him a never before hardon in the middle of a football match (ouch) or make it go limp during intimacy (lol)
It can mutate his cells and relapse his cancer (that’s the big one)
This new driver does not ride safe.

>>>its “healing alter-ego”

????  What does that mean?

>>> a healing parasite requests global propagation

???  What does “global propagation” mean?  And how can a parasite, with less brain bandwidth than I have, “request” anything of its host?  Or need to or have to for that matter?  The virus that gave me the flu didn’t ask first.  It just invaded my body and did what it does best — or worst.

It starts with the ill boy starting to heal, talking to himself (or rather his alter-ego)

Then the virus started making unusual requests in return of some recovery progress, punishing him all the while for his negligence.

Gradually the boy learns his motives are to breed globally, consuming the idea of free will and creating a society of walking virus superintelligence!

another version:

When a healing parasite requests global propagation in return for the total cure of its dying host, he must prevent it, risking his relapse
