Eternal Life, by KayCee Williams

(An Exceptional friend of mine, in response to thoughts about our mutal feelings and beliefs about our personal futures.)

At a café on the Champs-Elysees in the year 3050 a tall, blond, handsome man sips his espresso and takes a deep breath of the fresh spring air. He closes his eyes and leans his head back, enjoying the feel of the sun on his face.

When he opens his eyes and lowers his gaze he sees several schoolgirls in a row, walking hand in hand. One of them spots him and releases her classmates to walk towards the man. She looks familiar, he tries to place the smile that he knows he's seen somewhere before. Is she perhaps the daughter of a friend?

She stands directly before him for a moment and then speaks. The man jumps up from his chair and walks quickly away. The girls' teacher catches up to pull the child back into the row and asks the girl "What happened?" "I don't know" the child responds. "I just told him he was cute and cuddly and he said 'Oh dear God, it's you and your seven!' and ran away". The girl does not consciously know why but she finds this hilarious and laughs all the way back to school.

That prank is totally worth dying and being reborn in a new body.
