With the last of her strength she washes the last scalpel
and drops it onto the  clean towel next
to the wash basin. She lays it down next to the rest of the pristine surgical

world .

She turns and looks
at the body on the slab. Breathes in and sighs.

Jack, Avariel and Unit #6 pondered the letter with one word written on it...

Unit #6 rumbled "But... we... must... still... judge... on... SQUEE...".

The dark unicorn pondered "Its not really the usual soft and fuzzlyness...".

“Blessed is he who is stained by the fruit of his labor, for he knows the honesty of his own hands,” the priest intoned before holding out a bowl of still-warm ashes.
