My immortally is eminent. How could it not be? My soul has left a mark on universe that cannot be erased and others, besides you, know this to be truth. You say that I cannot announce my immortality that “Immortality comes to you, you do not go to Immortality.” I find this to be preposterous, I demand immortality and it will be so. Now you say that I am full of myself and probably liquor or some other substance. This maybe the case, however, I inquire you to look at who I am and what I have become, and then you tell me that I am wrong. I am the spark that enflames your heart—my heat quivers within you keeping you within my realm. I am the calm in the night that you encase yourself in to rest your weary existence—my solace is without comparison, you breath in my soul. I am what you have always endeared and embraced—my flesh is but flesh but you still wish to partake of its bounty. I am what you aspired to be but you fell short—your jealousy of how the world perceived me held you back. Can you still say that I am not destined to be immortal? And your answer is “yes.” Of course, you still do not believe.

  1. It reminds me of a riddle of “what am I” and a part of me is still wondering what or who this character is. Great story and if it really is a riddle then I will continue to try and think of what it is.

  2. Though is the drink making him think “immortality is eminent” or is he right and the drink's just what makes him say so? Also did you mean imminent or was he talking about how great his immortality is?

    He makes a pretty compelling case for his immortality, so I have trouble dismissing it as drunk ramblings, but maybe that's just because its from his POV.
