Prologue

THE KNIFE BURROWED INTO my side with a moist thwump.

I looked down, confused. The blade was buried so deep that the hand holding it was pressed almost flat against my stomach. My pulse hammered against the steel.

And then I felt fire.  My mouth dropped open. The blood was rushing out of me too fast, I knew, soaking my shirt, turning it from white to red in seconds.  It was too late. Too late to save myself.

I looked into those familiar eyes, mouthed a single word.

You."                                                                 

 What do you think? Read more or pass?
