Pinstriped Death's voice faded along with the golden snake he unleashed on me. “I am not happy to see things come to this, my brother...”
“Me too.” I placed my fist above my heart and looked up at the also fading black hole growing in the sky above us. With one thump against my chest, a flock of silver storks materialized around Prudence, one half pecked at the Deaths around her, fending them off, while the other half spread their wings to shield her.
Sister Death willed the black hole down on us. The fading continued. Everything I knew disappeared.
Prudence also appears in the novel I Killed My Friends and It Thrilled Me.
