I sat at the table with my mother Leda, and my two grandmothers Europa and Callisto.
They were chatting away, happily as ever, complete oblivious to the anxiety that was building in my stomach.
They were used to this. Grandma Callisto had been doing it for years. But for me, it was new.
I drew a deep breath in, calming myself. I’d already come to the realisation that immortality was nothing to be feared, but something to be embraced. I wasn’t sure why the anxiety was building now.
I lifted the fork, consuming my first bite of ambrosia. It tasted odd; indescribable.
I savoured the taste in my mouth with every bite. I wondered how my mother and grandmothers could ever get used to the taste of it. It was amazing in so many ways.
As I took the last bite, something overcame me. It was like happiness; but amplified by an unimaginable number. Like my soul tasting freedom for the first time.
I bathed in the feeling, wishing it would never go. I felt so open, so awake, so alive.
The feeling intensified. My eyes widened.
This was what it was like to be immortal.Immortal FourName:
