I suppose this is more of a mystery novel than a romance novel, but I still felt that it belongs in the Romance catagory. Also, I'm really not that pleased with the title, so some suggestions would be nice. Of course, it's kind of hard to name something having read only the prologue. And I know this is a really, really short prologue but I couldn't make it any longer than that because I don't want to reveal who the murderer is. Hope you like it!
Mystery Person’s POV
The scream cut through the air like a blade. Which was kind of funny, because I was holding one. I wrenched the knife out of the girl’s body, letting her crumple to the floor. As I stared down at her, a wave of remorse washed over me, but I pushed it back just as quickly as it had come. There wasn’t time to stand here and feel guilty. I had to escape.
It was good that the door was locked, because it would buy me just enough time to get out of here. I reached for the digital clock on the night table and threw it through the window, shattering the glass.
I could hear people in the hallway, yelling. It was only a matter of time before they broke down the door.
I shot one last glance at the girl’s body. Then I climbed through the window and escaped into the night.
