ABC Drabbles of Death - U is for Undying
We're nearing the end of the ABC Drabbles of Death series with only five more to go. I have an idea for a new series to continue when this one is finished, so look out for news on that soon!
In today's drabble we reach the letter 'U' and it proved a difficult letter to pick a word for. Then I thought about an idea I've had for a future novel and one of its aspects fitted nicely. IF you've not read the other drabbles in the series then you'll find them all here:
U is for Undying
It seemed a good deal at the time. In exchange for my soul I’d never die. A deal so good I believed that I’d tricked the Devil. After all - what use was my soul if I didn’t die?
He must be laughing now.
It was a rush at first. No matter what happened I’d walk away from it. Sure it hurt, but the pain was worth the rush.
But like any drug the rush soon faded and there would be no escape. Once entropy had its fill I’d witness the end of the universe.
And I would never die.
