I jumped out of my bed, and sprinted down the house.
How could it be?
How could I dream of her before I even knew she existed?
It had been her all along – Agnes.

I ran through the house, searching every room. I needed to know. There was something that only she could answer. I screamed her name desperately, over and over again.

I ran out of the front door, still screaming her name.
What I saw shocked me.

There she was. Agnes, floating. She was a ghost.


A million questions popped into my head. Was I dreaming?
I stood, in shock. I started begging myself to wake up. I shouted. I screamed. I didn’t understand. I was lost in a world of darkness.

Then he appeared. Death.


He called Agnes’ name.
She called my name. She called my name, just like in the dreams.

Tears ran down my face. I was still begging myself to wake up. It had to be a dream. It had to be.

Death looked at me, fog drawing from his hooded face.
“Copernicus,” he spoke, “you’re next…”

I didn’t understand. What was a Copernicus?
I stumbled over my words, as I tried to take it all in. “What’s a Coperni--” I started to cry. But he disappeared, as though he’d never existed.


They were both gone. Death and Agnes.
It wasn’t a dream. She had really gone. My best friend had just died before my eyes.
So many questions were left unanswered – how did I dream of her years before we had met? Why did she leave so suddenly? What did the cloaked figure mean?

Sadness overwhelmed me. I heard people shuffling in the background. I felt a hand on my shoulder. The sound was muffled out. I couldn’t think. I couldn’t breathe.


She was gone, forever.

Such a touching update!

I feel so sad for Callisto, she already has so much weight on her shoulders. I hope Thornton and her girls will be able to help her through this.

Wow, what an awesome couple of updates!!  Beautiful story telling - beautiful use of dramatic suspense!  I can't wait to see how Callisto makes sense of all of this.   Grim was kind of spooky, though.   :D

Thank you everyone.
Poor Callisto took a big hit with Agnes gone, especially with the over-emotional trait, and she ended up being in the red at miserable for a while. I felt very sorry for her, and she ended up getting the most attention in the house for a while.

Re: The Moons of Jupiter: An Immortal Dynasty (Chapter 16: Explanation)

The next day, I left bed in the late afternoon. I’d spent all day in bed, not wanting to face the world. I felt bad because James had lost his mother, yet I was moping around more than him.
But I had lost my best friend, and my one shot at answers. I needed to know how and why Agnes had come to me in my dreams before I had known of her existence.

I got to the kitchen, only to realise it was my birthday.




I sat at the table with the kids and sighed.
“I guess you could paint my portraits for me before I become immortal, Cyllene, if you would,” I said.
The kids all looked at me strange.


“Um.. mum… I think you’re getting senile. What’s this talk about ‘immortality’?” replied Cyllene.
I felt my gut drop. I realised that I’d never explained the dynasty to the girls. They had no idea.

I turned to them and said I had something I needed to tell them, but they must believe me. I got the book titled The Immortal Dynasty and placed it on the table.
I dove straight into the explanation – the letter from my mother, the magic of the book, the requirements, the ambrosia and most importantly, what completing it would achieve: my mum’s freedom from a horrible fate.

After taking turns in trying to touch the book, they realised what I said was true: Europa could pick up the book, but when Cyllene or James tried, the book shimmered and faded away.

Their reactions were quite different. Europa was furious. Furious that her sister would pass away, and she would live.
Cyllene, on the other hand, said that she understood why we needed to do it, and said she’d help in any way possible.


Poor James just sat there in shock, trying to take it all in.


Europa started yelling at me, asking me how I could live with myself letting my daughter die before her eyes; letting everyone die before my eyes.
Cyllene stood, telling her to be quiet.
She told Europa that she accepted what had to be done. She asked her what she would have done, had I been in the same situation – would she save me, or would she leave me?

Europa quieted down, and began to look sorrowful. I was sad to see my daughter like this – seeing her express the emotions that I was caging within myself.
Cyllene walked over to Europa and pulled her into a hug.


“I promise you, Europa, that I’m content with this. It needs to be done. Luna is our grandmother, and she needs our help. She’s family, and family is the most important thing in this world. Please, help mum”.
Europa looked into her sisters eyes, and then into mine.
She nodded her silent acceptance.

Cyllene sat back down, and started planning out how she was going to set up my portrait and sculpture. Her willingness really brought my mood around.

I was so lucky to have Cyllene and Europa as my children. Their acceptance to help me save my mother by paying the ultimate sacrifice was a true blessing, and I could never thank them enough for helping me. I love these two girls dearly, and even though I’d be here much longer than Cyllene ever would, she would always be in my heart.

Just three hours later, Cyllene had already put the finishing touches the my part of the immortal dynasty.
I took a seat amongst the portraits, sculptures and pictures of my life. I reflected back on each moment that had passed – each moment that lead to me sitting here.

I took my first bite of the ambrosia. It was sweet, yet it was bitter. It was hot, yet cold. It was unlike anything I’d even seen. Unlike anything I'd ever smelled. Unlike anything I'd ever tasted.


I took the last bite off my plate. I was feeling strange; elated. I felt like I was floating through the endless skies; like nothing would ever harm me.
And I heard her. My mother.
“I’m proud of you darling Callisto” was all I heard, but it was all I needed to hear.


I was closer to my mother, and she was closer to me.
“One day you’ll be free mother. I’m going to save you. I promise” I whispered.

Congratulations, Callisto! You should do it, even if your family has to die (except Europa), to save the Copernicuses. We believe in you! :D

WOOOT!  Congratulations on tasting your first ambrosia, Callisto!  What a lovely exchange between the sisters and their mom.  I'd be interested to know what is going on in James' mind.  He had a kind of a blank look on his face throughout.

Congratulations to both you and Callisto! The first Moon Immortal (and third (I believe) Copernicus Immortal) is a fact!

Absolutely fantastic update. I loved the conversation between Callisto, her daughters, and James. And now that Kat mentioned it, I'm really curious as to how he's taking this as well. After all, he'll be - in all likelihood - marrying into the family.

My name is Europa, the second Moon of Jupiter.


I am the first heir in an Immortal Dynasty. A dynasty designed to save my grandmother from her horrible fate.
Where she is, I’m not sure. But I know that it’s horrible. It’s torture.
So through this dynasty, eight immortals will conquer the demons that are holding her back. Through this dynasty we will save our family. As my sister had told me in the past, family is the most important thing in the world.

So far I’ve been successful in life. Being ambitious has surely helped me there.
Although I’ve only recently become a young adult, I’m a highly skilled fisherwoman, I’m at the top of my career and I’ve achieved my life-time wish of having a perfect aquarium. Life is good for me.

To top it all off, I have the man of my dreams – James Steel.
He recently became a young adult, and acquired a job at the local diner.



Although the news that my family line was destined for immortality was a shock to him, we’d gone through the shock together. We’d talked and realised that this Immortal Dynasty wouldn’t change a thing – we were still young and in love, and still had our entire lives ahead of us.

After he’d gone into the diner, he asked me to meet him at Stoney Falls. I knew he’d be in his formal wear, seeing as he’d just had an interview, so I dressed in mine too.

As he approached me, my heart fluttered. It always did.


Before I had the chance to tell him how dashing he looked in his suit, he drew me into his arms. His eyes were captivating, drawing me further in with each breath.
He told me he loved me, and I knew it to be true.


He whispered in my ear that I was the most beautiful woman he’d ever laid eyes on. My heart swelled as I kissed him. He was perfect.

As he drew back from the kiss, he got down onto one knee. I couldn’t believe it! I felt like the luckiest woman to ever exist. I couldn’t contain myself, as I cried with happiness I gasped the words “of course”.



He was perfect. We were perfect.
Everything was perfect. I was in love.
