Gilgamesh thought to himself that if Enkidu died and was as powerful as he is, he to will die. Gilgamesh decided to find a way to achieve immortality and eternal life.
I need to find a way!
Gilgamesh found way that he could have immortality. There is someone named Utnapishtim that could give Gilgamesh eternal life. So Gilgamesh went to find him.
I will get what I desire!
Gilgamesh went and found Utnapishtim and was expecting his immortality but he was told that only gods can grant immortality, not mortals. Gilgamesh felt broken but would not give up. Utnapishtim told Gilgamesh about a plant in the bottom of the ocean that would grant him immortality.
Do not worry!
Gilgamesh was able to achieve the plant of immortality. But unfortunately after he found it he fell into a deep sleep.
Gilgamesh woke up from his long deep sleep and then realized that his plant of immortality was eaten by the snake. Gilgamesh saw the snake shed its skin and be reborn.
After Gilgamesh saw the snake be reborn he learned a lesson. After he learned his lesson he went back to Uruk as a humble and better king. He never hurt any innocent thing again. He was ok with death slowly about come someday. including every living thing.
