When I was a child, my father would tell me stories about red-lipped princesses and dark-haired knights. It was in one of these stories that I first learned about demons. He told me they were normal people who had been driven to do unspeakable things by their lust for power. But, as I grew older, I learned to have that kind of power a terrible price must be paid.

 I should know.  I paid it.

Well the first line hooked me in straight away. This prologue was really intriguing and now I'm curious about the rest! - Z.

This actually works if you read it backwards. 
                              
                              Well, I said I would read it and here I am. Late, but here. 
                              
                              Very intriguing and ominous. Sounds like she (well, I assume it's a she) has had an interesting life...

@Soa_Soraya Thanks! I'm really glad you liked it! :) I wanted it to be somewhat tender but still share some of Rose's back story.
                              
                              @stephenpaulhelms Thanks! I actually had a friend edit for me before I put it up. Also I'd be happy to read some of your stuff and give feedback! :)

Incredibly descriptive, and wonderfully written. The whole prologue feels 'soft' like death but at the same time incredibly powerful. Great hook :)
