Hope, Sadness, and Crunches
The red fruits made a crunching sound of hope and sadness inside Prudence's mouth.
“See that?” She pointed at the second bed in her apartment. “My best friend used to occupy that before she died.”
I nodded and said nothing even if I knew about Annie's demise.
“My biggest regret in this demon-fighting life I adopted is that I didn't do it earlier,” she continued. “Annie would still be alive if I had. My other regret?” The crunches from Prudence's mouth stopped. “I've yet to avenge her death. Seeing the demon that killed her reminded me of that unforgettable night.”
Prudence also appears in the novel I Killed My Friends and It Thrilled Me.
