Prologue

Fall 2007

September

There weren’t many things I didn’t like about Kai when I first met him in the crowded restaurant in Manhattan, aside from his inscrutable nature. Was he interested or was he a polite Southern boy simply passing time? And why had he run off like that?

As our group gathered outside the bar, I spotted him standing under a cone of pale light, attempting to hail a passing cab. His hand raised in the air; a shadow passed over his face as his shape began to waver against the dark shadows of passing traffic. All at once, his knees buckled, body toppling over like a sack of doorknobs to the hard sidewalk. The long fall ended with a hollow thud that echoed back and forth against the side of the tall buildings at my back.

I watched in terror as his kind eyes turned to two white slits on his pain-stricken face. Watching him lay there, a broken marionette with all its strings cut, I helplessly clawed from the inside to reset the clock.

Oh my God…is he... dead?!

skryz3r1: The idea of the plot is original and great, however the character development so far isn’t ideal. There’s too many characters to focus on. It might’ve been better to introduce them in a slower pace so you can get to understand each individually rather than an overwhelming 4/5? mates in what seems...
