There was so much forgetting for such a short time. Not just names and faces, but the mores and habits and limits of baseline humans. There were times it thought it could even forget what it was like to not have its face buried in the crevice where it fit so well, and performed its duties so satisfactorily.
The humans were so very very easy to dominate, to manipulate, to alter. Such fun toys. And almost useful as pets.
