I enjoyed this prologue. It stoked my curiosity for the relationship mentioned. I'm going to continue to read chapters as time allows. Great work so far!

Nice way to follow the opening narrative. I like the depth that this sudden change has brought to the character. We expected to have the usual interaction between a couple until you took us in another direction. Nice writing here. :)

Very nice and intriguing beginning. The lady in this chapter is pregnant. Broken promises implying a failed relationship she has put behind her. I am assuming that the lady is going to be the protagonist's mom.

I like this introduction. It drew me in instantly. A lot was said here in a simple paragraph serving as a hook for the reader. Great start.

EDITING SUGGESTIONS: 
                              - in "Here the could be together...", it should be "they" ;)
