Photo Challenge #171

This week’s image is provided by Natalia Fadejeva.
Challenge details here:

She’d said she wanted to live forever, and didn’t care how it worked, just so long as it did.
So here she was lying in the dark, surrounded by silence.
She had been told to relax, breathe slowly and deeply, let the water caress her body.
The process would take less than an hour.
A rough calculation equated to over a thousand bucks a minute.
It would be worth every penny.
A sweet aroma teased into her nostrils, making her feel light-headed.
Little ripples disturbed the water as the level and temperature rose.
And continued to rise.
She felt surprisingly comfortable as she drifted into unconsciousness.
The ‘process’ actually took forty minutes.
‘She’s dead,’ said a disembodied voice. ‘You can harvest her organs now.’


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    Great twist — yes,she would live on — but not as she planned. Interesting interpretation of the photo.
