The Never Mine

 

"The Never Mine"

 

In the mountains of Antarctica, lies the source of a mineral that grants long life. Anyone in possession of a shard of this substance no longer ages. It's difficult to acquire and many have died trying to do so. Worse, those who do have a piece of forever are targeted and even murdered by people who want to acquire endless tomorrows without frostbite or chilblains. But the joke's on them. You have to dig the rock of eternity out of the ground with your own hands or the magic doesn't work.
