Prologue


Don’t look back. The world lays ahead, not behind you. Listen.
I ran faster and faster down the gravel road.
My legs felt like they would explode.
His car zoomed closer and closer, with a terrorizing speed.

Come on, I can do this.

Suddenly the car’s head lights switched on with a light as bright as the sun.
I attempted to cover my eyes but my arms fell back limply to my sides as my belongings almost spilled on the ground.

I screamed.

My legs collapsed under me, and I face planted into the dirt.
His car almost ran over me, but fortunately only crushed my raw fingers.
The car came to an abrupt stop, with a high-pitched squeal.
A car door slammed, and I tried in vain to get to my feet but my legs failed me.
The man ran slowly, closer and closer to me.
I hopelessly stared at the ground, giving up.
And there he was.
Even though I was 18, I looked small and vulnerable compared to him.
He had brawny shoulders, with a twisted smile to match. The man was tall, twice the size of my height of an average woman.
“You will pay for this Imogen.” The man rasped as he lifted his hand threateningly.
“We were supposed to love each other!” I said tearfully, “That is what marriage is about! It’s only been 5 years but I am not staying with you any longer! God is my strength, and He will-”
The last thing I remembered was a sore pain in the back of my head.

A frightening opening.

NOTES: I could use a bit of trimming for unneeded clauses and descriptors.
