“Get away from here,” Prudence ordered the man she just saved from the creature Agmon. The man dashed to the apartment's only door without a word back to his rescuer. Agmon shrieked, exposing rows of long, jagged teeth. Prudence grinned.

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