After getting over my disappointment of the departure of Angel from Alice, I was able to appreciate how the author led me into Alice's emotions. Because of the author's artistic/poetic style, I was able to feel this story clip. The words can paint a vivid picture if you let them. This unique style of plunging into back stories and then returning to the story line is used in cinema these days and is more of how the human mind thinks. I look forward to reading more clips!
