I moved down the hallway, hoping to find someone. Anyone. Any sign of life. But no-one was there.


The house was empty, like a shell. There was no proof that anyone had ever lived here. That was no proof that any of them had ever existed.

I was filled with a sense of dread, which seemed to conflict with the feeling of floating on air. I found myself wishing that I would sink – wishing that I would sink right through the floorboards and seep back into a world where everything was right; where everything was real.
But I couldn’t.

I continued drifting through the house, wishing that my feet would touch the ground. Wishing that I could physically feel anything. Wishing to feel anything at all.
But I couldn’t.


My mind was unable to comprehend what was taking place. I could only feel pain shooting through every inch of me. Not through my body; I couldn't feel my body. I could only feel excruciating pain, getting stronger by the moment.
I wasn’t dead. But I wasn’t alive. I just existed; just me and pain.

I hardly noticed that I had drifted beyond the sanctuary of my home, into the blackness.
The perpetual darkness enveloped me. It crushed my very soul. I tried to scream, but no sound came out. I tried to flail, I tried to kick, I tried to sink, I tried to scream. Nothing. I could do nothing.
I was not in control. It was just me and pain; endless pain contorting my soul, contorting every inch of me.

But I could do nothing but keep floating on, still but tortured.


I couldn't control my movements. The pain had broken me down so much that I could hardly see.
But what I could see was never-ending darkness. I was trapped. Trapped between the cusp of life and death.


The pain became worse and worse. I felt as though my soul was being torn into pieces; like someone has taken a chainsaw through me. I twisted in spasms, unable to control myself.
I wished against all hope that I could fall to the floor and convulse against the cold of the tiles. I wished against all hope to feel numb; feel anything apart from this agonizing pain.

But I couldn’t.
There was no floor. There was no mercy. There was no hope.
I was completely trapped in this everlasting darkness. I was completely trapped in this everlasting pain.

As I realised where I was, I knew that it would never end. The pain would never end.

I fell out of my chair, gasping for air. Tears streamed down my face, as I cried uncontrollably.
Mum ran over, and helped me up, bringing me into a hug. She looked worried.


It took me a while to get my bearings. I was in the lounge room. It was real.

I looked at mum, right in the eyes.
“I know what will happen if we fail”.

I couldn’t bring myself to explain the rest. I couldn’t explain the darkness, or the fear.
I couldn’t explain being half-way between life and death, wishing for nothing more than to fall into the clutches of the dead.
I couldn’t find the words to explain an eternity of wishing to escape an unbearable pain that tore through not only your body, but your entire soul.

But Mum didn’t press me any further. She just pulled me close, and held me for a while.


“Ellie, darling, we’ve come this far. We’re almost there. We will make it.”
Her words calmed me down. It had felt so real, but I couldn’t let it get to me. I had to keep moving on.


So that’s what I did.
I decided that I needed to be proactive about climbing the ranks at work, so I asked my boss to come around.
Luckily for me, we were close friends, so after a bit of chatting and a bit of “Hey, do you think I could have a promotion?”, I found myself rising through the ranks at a good speed.


I continued working on my exercise – the fitter I was, the more chance I had of reaching my dreams.


And reaching my dreams is what I did.
Within no time, I was an athletic superstar, and within a few days of that, I was already at the top of my career, considered a sports legend. I felt great.


I was surprised to find that as a sports legend, there were many fans. I was overwhelmed with happiness knowing that my fitness inspired others.
I held autograph sessions up at the stadium, wanting to personally meet all the people that found inspiration in my work.


Though I was surprised that even my boss was ecstatic to receive an autograph from me.


That night, I got home to find Lexie. It would be my last day of being an adult, and she knew that I’d been feeling the anxiety of it all.


I was lucky to have her with me. She comforted me, and we spent the night watching the stars, as we had since we were teens.



It amazed me how big the sky was. It was endless.
I supposed that life was that way too. Forever continuing on.

Once Lexie had gone home, I got changed and headed out to the town. There was one place I wanted to visit.

I arrived at the fire station, and climbed the stairs to the top. It was hard to imagine that this is where it had begun – Grandma Callisto bunking here, wondering how she’d be able to complete a task so big. A task so impossible.


But she had done it. Centuries of work, and it had come to an end. Tomorrow would bring the glory of all the waiting. Tomorrow would bring the end.

I got into one of the beds. It was small and uncomfortable. I tried to imagine life as Grandma Callisto, and as I was lost in my thoughts, I drifted to sleep.

Wow Alexandria, just astounding how amazing your story telling is.  I can't wait to read the final chapters of the Moons!!

I woke up with butterflies already gnawing at my stomach. Today was the day. Today would bring eight generations of work to an end. Today would bring Grandma Luna out of Hades grip, and back to us. We’d all be together. We’d all be happy.

Lexie was waiting for me at the house. She knew I’d need some extra courage to get me through. Little did she know that just seeing her bright eyes made everything feel better.


I wondered what would happen once I ate my ambrosia. Not in the sense of what would happen to my family, but what would happen to Lexie. Would we still be together? Would we be separated?
I didn’t want to say goodbye to her – I wasn’t ready for that yet.
I held her extra tight, hoping that this wouldn’t be my last chance.

I stood at my cake, looking out at my family and my friends. They’d all brought me to where I was now. I had them to thank for the life that I’d led.


I took a deep breath, and blew out my candles, wishing only that everything would be alright.




Then came the rush: have your make-over, get your portrait, pose for a sculpture, thank all your friends. All of the instructions pretty much meant ‘prepare for the end’.


By the afternoon, everything was set.
I felt so anxious. Almost so anxious that I couldn’t bring myself to go through with it.
My mother and grandmother’s had known what would happen to them – they’d be temporarily immortal. Nothing else in their lives would change.
But my turn brought so much more. It brought the unknown.

As I walked out to the backyard, I was shaking. Mum grabbed my hand and smiled at me. I gave her a half-smile back. It was all I could muster.
Now was the moment.

You're almost done!  This is so amazing! :o
God created Pie when He wanted a snack.  Pie was very pretty so lots of cute boys wanted her attention.  Eventually she ended up marrying a Greek god (Erebus) and having a child named Rebekah Ruella Felucia, nicknamed Bekka. <br />Bekka grew older and became the second vampire to exist, and is 9,086,753,423 years old.

We sat at the table for the final time.
None of us spoke. It was a moment that was precious. A moment that had been waiting to happen for centuries.


I pulled myself in towards the table. I felt like it was lucky that I hadn’t eaten, because it’d all be coming up about now. I was still unsure if I’d be able to even bring the fork up to my mouth. I was still unsure if I could do this.


I thought of Lexie. I loved her. By god, I loved her so much.
I hoped that this meal wouldn’t bring the end of me – that it wouldn’t bring the end of us.

I lifted the first mouthful to my mouth, my hand shaking uncontrollably. But the smiles of my family encouraged me. They warmed me. I couldn’t help but smile back – we were doing it. We were finally saving Grandma Luna.


The ambrosia felt more than just warm within my body. It felt like it was warming my soul.  It made me feel free. I felt as though I would explode with the amount of happiness I was feeling. I wanted to feel like this forever.


The feeling imploded, covering every inch of my body. I was alive. I was immortal.
