Theme: Let’s Eat!
Optional prompt: “After the incident, I never ate another carrot.” by SarcasticCupcake5.
This is a follow-up to [Sept21] Tribble Month 5: A High-Tech Scanner.
“And after that incident, I never ate another carrot,” I concluded the story I had somehow ended up telling. Fortunately, the underwater cuisine did not include carrots — it was basically fish and seaweed and whatnot, as I had expected, although onions had been a surprise — so I did not have to worry about the incident repeating — as if it would have repeated without Ingolf around anyway.
Honestly, in retrospect that fucker had been trying to kill me for a while and I just didn’t realize it.
I’d better get back to the surface and set the records straight as soon as possible.
“So, what exactly is this Everlive stuff you talked about?”
“There are people who will not die to injuries, no matter how grave. They simply wake up after being unconscious after injuries, as if they had come back to life. We call those people Everlives.”
“And you think I’m an Everlive?”
“You survived a severe stabbing you should have died to, did you not, Tymon?”
I thought back to when I had woken up on that boat. “Yeah… I thought that I did die.”
“Yet you woke up.”
“So, in other words, I’m immortal?”
“But if these eco-terrorists attack, I will feel pain and pass out if injured too badly?”
“Correct. But you will not die. You will never die.”
I had a bad feeling in my gut that Bluberia was not telling me something, but since I had a fucker to deal with, I needed to get this quest done and then find my way back home somehow.
I mean, what else could I do at this point?
