Laura saw the shadow looming above her for a split second, as she was opening the door to her car, before it zoomed into her mouth. She dropped to the cold parking lot floor, eyes and mouth closed.
Prudence ran to her and touched her face. “Are you okay?”
Laura opened her eyes and bellowed in a deep voice, “Of course I am!”
Her body got snatched to the air and spasmed violently. Prudence stared at it, her limbs frozen in shock. After half a minute, Laura's body fell motionless to the ground.
Tears dropped on Prudence's face. “I'm sorry.”
Prudence also appears in the novel I Killed My Friends and It Thrilled Me.
