Vespers: A Never Prayer Story, FINALE!!

In the car, Fiona is driving through the sloppy snow on the street, piling ever higher. Eladio is pale, holding an old t-shirt to the knife wound in his shoulder. Goy whimpers on his lap, licking his arm.
“I’m sorry, Fiona, I’m so sorry,” Eladio murmurs. “I should have known he’d follow me. But I couldn’t leave without saying goodbye. I’m sorry.”
Fiona wipes her face, smearing her make-up further. “It’s okay. We made it out. It’s okay. But who was that girl?”
“An angel,” Eladio says, smiling, tears in his eyes. “Angels have been trying to save my life all day long.”
