Kath remembers her gran, many years ago, telling her she wasn't mad - the voices she could hear were real - but years later, she's long forgotten she could ever hear whispers in the wind and voices that weren't hers. Now, she's an adult working a 9-5 job in the City. 
But one night, walking home along the river, she sees and hears things that couldn't possibly be real. And when her new colleague turns out to be more than just mysterious - when the voices that aren't real start speaking again - Kath knows her gran was right all along...

Your style flows forward nicely at a good rhythm.    For some reason, the mention of the mysterious female giving a 'roundhouse kick' seemed oddly out of place, but that is only a small thing.   A very well done prologue.

I think a full stop between 'remote' and 'the wind' would be better here. Strong opening though!

@chetinsley no worries, it's not for everyone's taste, thanks for giving it a go! :)
