Bara Cailín 5: 35 ‘a deadly blessing’

Two days later and the Minot Tower was finally destroyed and the debris rained down upon the toiling crowds like a deadly blessing. The group responsible for achieving this goal all perished in the collapse except for one (un)fortunate woman who was able to grab a handhold as the Tower fell.

She hung from one arm for another sixteen hours before she too lost her grip and fell wailing to be impaled upon the railings.

This death mattered for as long as it took the crowd beneath this woman’s fall to pull her body from the railings and place it in the park next door with all the other corpses so that they then could carry on uninterrupted with their toil.
