The hammering of hooves on dirt continued, and pain sporadically but frequently wracked my body as the incessant pummelling continued. Hooves crushed my bones as I lay waiting for the angels to circle closer, to lift me up, to free me from this universe of pain.
Crack! A hoof on my thigh! Pain shot up and down, ricocheting through my body:
that's for Prendergast, I sobbed.

Crack! A hoof on my ribs! Flesh tore and ripped. All my thoughts dripped crimson:
that's for Taya Two Horses, I gurgled.

Crunch! My face! All thoughts faded, but one:
that's for Mr Bowen.

    Wowee! A tour de force no less. A brilliant drabble, in reading which I feel her pain. I fear for Anna Cody, not for the present woes, but I'm afraid she ain't gonna be communing with no angels. This is bone-breakingly brilliant Drew! Thanks.
