You find a small rabbit stuck in a trap during a walk in the woods one day. When you free it (because of course you do), the rabbit transforms into a beautiful woman in a long, flowing green gown with blonde hair, piercing blue eyes, and a crown of flowers. She tells you she has the power to make you immortal as a reward for your act of kindness. Do you take her off, why or why not? If not, would you have the guts to ask for something other than what she offers you?

I honestly got a little nervous when I read this. How would I do this justice? How would I truly explain my feelings regarding this amazing and thought provoking prompt?
While the thought of living forever fills the pages of books with romance, science fiction, or magic. I imagine terror and pain that never leaves you. I imagine a horror story at its worst.
Aren’t you being a bit over dramatic?
Nope. While living forever means I would get to watch AJ grow into a man and have kids of his own. While it means I would get to watch my grand kids grow up. I would also watch my son grow old and leave this earth. I would watch my grand kids grow old and follow their dad.
All those I love would be gone, I would be alone FOREVER. My husband, son, parents, and sister would all be up in heaven waiting for me but I would never make it up there. I would be stuck in a hell on earth.
Yes, to me the thought of living forever is hell. A hell created by a the devil, disguised as a woman, pretending to be a trapped rabbit. Imagine if that is how he finds his victims. In your eagerness to live forever you neglect to read the small print…”You will live forever in the hell of you’re own making.”
I could never get attached to another living thing because the heartache of losing them is too much to bear. I would be an emotional wreck, I would be sick to my stomach. I would be living one of my worst fears.
Why don’t you just ask for something else?
No way! I know it would backfire and I would be living in a different hell on Earth. Yes, I know I’m cynical, perhaps it’s from reading too many gory, crime mysteries. You can NEVER truly know someone. You can NEVER accept a gift that seems to good to be true. The moment you do that, it’s over for you.
What would you choose? Would you want to live forever or
just live your life?
