To my daughters Ali and Veronica, for reading this story and enjoying it.
Chapter One - Danny
I called it the ‘Eve of my Immortality’. I wasn’t dying … not me. Death became a dirty word, and in my heart and in my soul, there was no way I could die. A body is a vessel for the spirit—the soul. Though the body can weaken and die, surely our inner energy doesn’t extinguish and disappear like a heartbeat or breath. It makes us who we are; it is what shines from beneath the layers of epithelia to show our true being.
