[Complete] After a plane crash, Megan is marooned with a group of survivors on an uninhabited island in the Pacific. They find a dead man's body, and the next day it's gone. And then someone of their group disappears, too.

They realize that there's something with them. 

Something that might be lethal.

----

Not having much to head home for, Megan doesn't care when her plane takes off with a delay of several hours. She is bored, and the strange, dark man at her side isn't much of a talker--yet their conversation gets interesting once the plane's engines stop working.

They crash. Many die, but a small group of survivors makes it to the shore of a deserted, volcanic island in the middle of nowhere.

They feel lucky to be alive as they wait for the rescue teams. But they're not.

----

A thriller/adventure story, with elements of mystery, and some surprises.

----

 #WWBC Amazing ending! The prologue is short but well written.

 #WWBC A well-fitting ending hook you wrote, really fits the suspense of what happens next.

                              Ok so we dont really have much to go on but you do describe a flight reasonably well. Em, I think you could add a lot more but so far as a prologue goes its fine. Well written short and sweet its solid. I cant really say any more than that.

                              Wow, I never thought I'd be both excited and bored at the same time.

                              I’m a flair for the dramatic, and this makes me overjoyed and excited for the story! I love how your simple and short prologue was so meaningful. I’m also a grammar nazi, so your writing makes me very happy so far :)

 #WWBC this prologue was so mysterious. It shows thst something bad is going to happen but we don't know what. However, i think It was a bit too short. May be add a bit more words, and explain more on the airplane - What the protagonist saw, etc. to add more words.
