Angel of Mercy
by Katherine Tildes
Emily held Mrs. McGregor's hand as the 97-year-old woman took her
last breaths, her soul rising from her body like a wisp of
smoke, and hanging in the air expectantly. Emily withdrew her
fingers carefully from the death grip and smiled down on the body.
She pulled the pink blanket up and covered dear Mary's face, closing
the woman's eyes with her left hand. "May you go in peace now
Mary, I will guide your soul," she whispered to the corpse,
doing part of her duty. closing her eyes, Emily reached out her
mind and with ghostlike fingers grasped the hovering soul, which
shimmered for a second then blinked out of existence, not than anyone
other than a Reaper, Angel or Demon could have seen it before. Emily
felt a sort of tickle and opened her eyes. She knew Mary's soul had
just gone off to wherever it was going, using her as a conduit to get
there. Emily smiled, basking in euphoria for a moment, and walked out
of the room into the busy halls of the ER.
There was a taste ;) Enjoy! :p
