What would you die for?
I believe the answer to that question shows us our true priorities, what we truly think is important. I value freedom. I would fight to protect it. But if I were faced with the choice of a lifetime imprisoned or certain death, I would probably choose a lifetime imprisoned (hoping that I would find some sort of happiness with it).
In contrast, I truly would die to protect my dear wonderful hubby (though I doubt he would allow that). If the choice came down to his life or mine, I would give up my life.
I was watching the season premiere of Containment. In this TV show, a section of a city is exposed to a deadly virus and blocked off.
Some loved ones are in the infected area. These people, if they stay in the infected area, will die. There’s no cure and the virus spreads quickly.
Some loved ones are in the safe area. They will hopefully live long healthy lives.
If you were in the infected area, would you try to escape, knowing you could possibly infect your loved ones and other people? If you were in the safe area, would you try to enter the infected area to be with your loved ones, knowing you will die?
Again, it comes down to… What would you die for? Would you die for your loved ones, put their lives before your life?
In Defying Death, my latest release, Death, the cyborg hero, witnesses a moment between another cyborg and his female that is so touching, so loving; Death is willing to do anything to experience something similar to it. He rebels against his cyborg brethren, dooming himself to death, to find his own female, his own moment of happiness.
Death would die for one moment of happiness, of being loved.
He’ll risk it all for one moment of happiness.
Cyborgs don’t show emotion. Death learned that lesson early in his long lifespan. To survive, he hides his fierce passions behind a stoic wall. He calls no warrior friend. He never admits to caring for any being.
Even the human female he’s destined to love.
Tifara is Death’s obsession, his sole opportunity for happiness, to express the all-consuming passion burning brightly inside him. He’ll do anything to obtain the curvaceous medic: defy a direct order, abduct Tifara from her battle station, and wage war on his fellow cyborgs.
To earn her love, he’ll have to risk much, much more.
