why there’s a rabbit on the moon – part 19

overwhelmed

With someone approaching, there would be no time to destroy the pill! Not waiting to see if it was indeed Houyi, awakened from his hypnosis or one of his henchmen, she realized that the only way to keep the elixir of immortality from Houyi forever was to swallow it herself.

  1. “For a wise man one lifetime is enough, and a fool wouldn’t know what to do with eternity.” — Epicurus

    You’d think people would consider the consequences of immortality BEFORE they invest all that effort into it! 😀

      1. I try to have my second thoughts first.

        I really like the luminosity in this one, by the way!

  2. Yes, well let’s imagine that Chang’e (like 99.9% of the population) is not quite like you – lol – I guess I was thinking that there is a qualitative difference in how you think about something which is theoretically possible and something which is about to happen…

  3. Hilary, Just finally cathching up with the story….I find both the images and prose beautiful, and I agree , it really looks lovely when you do the page layout.
    Now hurry and finish the story, I want to know what happens!
