(At last, the prologue! It was a little bit lengthier than I expected, but do please enjoy! I worked hard on it & I’m sure there’s lots to revise & edit. But for now, here ya go! I’ll begin working on chapter banners, announcing which chapter you’re currently reading. Have fun & enjoy the beginning of Lover’s Panic! )
Screeeeeee! Never would I thought that the past, present, & future flash at indescribable intervals before my eyes as the vehicle veered off the side of the road. Reaction time was not an option, as in an instant my vision darkened until an inky blackness surrounded my form. There was no pain. There was nothing. Was I dead? I couldn’t tell how time had passed.
