The Moon's Gift
Moonlight washed Prudence's face with hope. But in life, some things are unnecessary and, in that moment, the moon's gift was one of it. A newfound hope had washed the guilt rotting inside Prudence. The moon deciding to be generous to her that night didn't matter. Without its assistance, Prudence would still rock.
“Keep in mind what Agmon eats,” I told Prudence.

A man screamed in an apartment unit 30 feet above us.
“See you up there.” Prudence nodded to me then climbed the fire emergency exit and began her way up.
Prudence also appears in the novel I Killed My Friends and It Thrilled Me.
