PROLOGUE.
i'm not alive if i'm lonely.


There's a house in the middle of the street that looks a mess. It's the only house on the street not to be boarded up but the garden is overgrown and there seems to be various household equipment outside, not to mention the garden gate is broken.

The downstairs window is smashed, a piece of cardboard nailed to the window to give it that gloomy feel.

There's a couple of people outside, talking quietly and smoking sterling cigarettes. One of the men is kicking an empty can of pepsi down the street and it appears as though they're waiting for someone.

All of a sudden the sound of a revving engine breaks the silence on the street and a car hurtles towards the three people. It doesn't stop as it collides with them, runs over them again and screeches off down the street leaving the three people to slowly die.

She whistles a song to herself as she pulls the coat tighter across her body. She's freezing but that's not surprising considering she isn't wearing much for a cold winter's night. Any normal people would wrap up warm but in her job that was impossible.

Her face is heavily made up as she passes underneath the street lights, trying to read the street names. She's supposed to be meeting a client at half past ten on Ardward Lane but she doesn't have a clue where it is!

She glances at her watch and realising she'll be late, speeds up. She finds the street and stands at the corner, staring down the dark street. She notes a flickering street lamp, takes a deep breath and begins to walk down.

The sound of her heels fills the silence and she becomes worried. There's a voice in the back of her mind telling her that something's wrong, something terrible has happened.

She shrugs it off, there's nothing wrong and it's just her being paranoid as usual.

She stands outside number ten and that's when she sees it. The bodies of two men and a woman, lying in a pile of their own blood. She stumbles backwards, throwing up as she does. She's about to take out her phone when something, someone grabs her.

"If you make a noise, I'll kill you."

And after that everything went black.
