My Dear EFB Colleagues,
I’m writing this today as a means of an apology. An apology owing to the fact that, as it stands right now, I haven’t had the chance to say good-bye; although that good-bye is in this form.
As you know, due to my powers being imbued upon me by Hera and the other Olympian Gods and Goddesses themselves, I can live a lot longer than most mere mortals. In fact, I am immortal myself, only every five hundred years or so, I have to undergo a metamorphosis, and become, in essence, a different person.
I am still me, with all my memories and abilities, but to you I will look like someone completely different.
Please do not be afraid.
This is the price for having these abilities, and I am willing to pay it.
I will be absent for a short time whilst the metamorphosis takes place, so it is advisable to leave me to it whilst it occurs. If I’m disturbed, nothing major will happen, apart from the process being slowed down a little, and I’d rather get straight back to work as soon as I can.
As I have said, I will still have my memories, and will remember each and every one of you, but I know how disconcerting it will be looking at a different face.
With time, it will get easier.
I look forward to getting to know the new me, as I hope you will too. Although, I have a feeling that the old me may be cropping up here and there from time to time as well, considering we have access to the Open Timeline anything is now possible.
So, it is a heartfelt good-bye from the old Muriel Magnificent, and a cheery hello from the new and improved version!
Just please, do not touch my cardigans!
See you after metamorphosis!
