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.’

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