Chapter 20: Daybreak
We are closing to the end and Luce must say goodbye to everyone she holds dear to journey to “the unknown” with (of all people) Mr. Cole. Luce won’t be around for the burial of Penn so she mutters her goodbyes on the alter of the church. Daniel promises to bury her as soon as possible. Luce wants to make sure he knows where to bury her so they sneak into the cemetary, which is crawling with policeman trying to figure out what actually went down in the battle the night before. All that remains as evidence is a thick layer of dust. Luce shows Daniel the stone where Penn’s father is buried and tells him to bury her there. She is upset about the tragic turn of events. Daniel does’t want to upset her further, but it is time to set off to another beginning. He flies her to the lake (yes, angels have wings), where they kiss and sadly, say their goodbyes (and until next times). They eventually make their way over to a small plane where Mr. Cole will be taking her to an island to keep her safe.
