The Silence

Memory 053

All the lights in the living room turned on as Prudence slid down the stairs. Pontius snapped out of his drunken stupor, bewildered at the sight of strange people in his living room.

One of the masked men pulled out a silenced gun and fired at Prudence. She sidestepped, the bullet hitting my face instead. Blood and flesh only Prudence and I could see splattered the stairs. The other man tried to grab Pontius but Prudence's invisible (except to her and me) purple lasso prevented him from doing so.

I watched in silence as Prudence denied me of my reaping.


Prudence also appears in the novel I Killed My Friends and It Thrilled Me.
