“Don't leave me,” a sober Pontius tugged at Prudence's jacket as she was heading for the door. “What if those men come back?”
Prudence eyed him, surprised with his quick recovery from the alcohol he consumed a while ago. “Don't worry. They will never bother you again.”
“How do you know that?”
She cast a quick glance at me before answering Pontius. “Let's just say I gave you protection.” She patted him on the shoulders and resumed her exit from his place. I followed her outside.
“How do you know that?” I asked her but never got an answer back.
Prudence also appears in the novel I Killed My Friends and It Thrilled Me.
