Prologue

A Chapter by Tea And A Cheshire Smile
"

"I watched with a sense of regret as his eyes fluttered closed and his body slumped, lifeless in my arms..."

"
  A sad smile crept across my face as he fell to the floor. Kneeling down beside him, I caressed his face gently and whispered a blessing in his ear. What a waste. He was a handsome man and ever so young, at seventeen he had his whole life ahead of him, but, alas, he had outlived his worth.
  "Don't fight it," I whispered softly. "You'll be safer now."
  Pulling back slightly to look at him, I smiled kindly as he froze, his pleading eyes fixed on mine. Instantly his expression became serene and his eyelids drooped. I put my hand beneath his chin and tilted his face so that his cheek was but a breath away from my face.
  "Sleep," I murmured. Leaning in, I brushed my lips against his cheek and kissed his cheekbone lightly. I watched with a sense of regret as his eyes fluttered closed and his body slumped, lifeless in my arms. Lowering him to the floor I sighed. Whilst I understood that my job was necessary, I never really enjoyed it. As each day passed, I took less and less pride in what I was, what I was chosen to do, and, instead, wished with all my heart that I had suffered the same fate as my assignments centuries ago.
  But you're necessary, whispered a voice in the back of my mind and, of course, it was right; I was necessary, but that didn't mean I had to like it. With yet another sigh, I rose to my feet and reached for my phone inside my pocket. Almost automatically, I dialled the office and waited for the phone to connect. 
  "It's done."

Author's Note

Tea And A Cheshire Smile
I was listening to Flyleaf and typing randomly, trying to get rid of my writers block, and this was the result ^^ I already have the idea for a story/book but I'm debating whether or not I should go ahead with it aha, so I'd like to get some opinions on this short prologue :) Please remember that this was originally an exercise to get rid of my block, so there's bound to be a few mistakes in there that Word didn't pick up on...

This is one scary character. You've already pulled me in and I have to know who this killer is and what her motive is!

The only glitch I detect is why she says, "You'll be safer now". Does she mean "safe" or is the implication that even after death this poor guy isn't safe from her? If you're not sure yourself I'd explore what could happen if she truely did mean "safer". Death is often so permanent in books perhaps this is a reality you could overturn?

If this was just an exercise to get rid of writers block if I were you I'd consider getting writers block more often!

Oo it seems you've woven a net of intrigue here! What's going on and what's going to happen? The perfect beginning to a suspense novella! Can't wait to see what happens next :)

This was wonderful. Short and straight forward, yet totally mysterious. I do hope you intend to finish this, because I for one, can't wait to read more.
