The Look of Goodbye
It would've been a victorious sight, with Prudence and her lasso in the scene, if only the weapon wasn't choking its own master and the enemy, Truzgamos, having the upper hand.
Prudence looked at me, her red and teary eyes looking for some help. I wasn't there to meddle, I reminded myself. I looked at the gate of the afterlife and my new reaping behind me before giving her the look of goodbye.
A hole had ripped open the sky above the fighters. Waves of light descended from it, accompanied by a choir of voices, freeing Prudence and banishing Truzgamos.
Prudence also appears in the novel I Killed My Friends and It Thrilled Me.
