“What is it like across the afterlife?”

I knew it was a common question thought and asked by many humans at some point in their life but I never imagined how I'd feel if it was asked to me straight. A quick turbulence swirled inside my borrowed stomach. Heartbeats doubled. Sweat formed on my palms and forehead. I gave Prudence the one and only answer she and the rest of the world would ever get. “You will know when you get there.”

“Do you know when will I get there?” she asked.

“Even if I do, I cannot tell you.”

Prudence also appears in the novel I Killed My Friends and It Thrilled Me.
