The day is bittersweet for Lesha as she stands by the Harlem River near dawn, near the old navy yards.
Today’s the day she gets to return “home,” to leave the city which has been her home away from home for many long, almost-human years.
By this time, she’s more than “earned her wings.” She’s watched dreams come true, and she’s watched evil people prosper from the pain of others.
Now, it is time to return home, to meet some of the people she knows in her heart she helped while she was here on earth.
Eyes cast up to heaven, she crosses her human-like arms across her human-like chest.
“I am ready, God. Take me back.”
In heaven, the souls of many await her return, to see her again, this time knowing exactly who has blessed them – and why.
