The Peacemakers: the opening

I wrote the first few pages of The Peacemakers last night. It will definitely need some editing and restructuring, but its fine for now. Here is the opening scene to the novel. Its pretty rough, but it gives me the right idea of what it should be like when its done.

There was a knock at the door.

“Wake up!”

A voice in the hallway. A female. There was another knock at the door, then the squeak of the door handle.

“Nolan, wake up!”

Nolan opened his eyes, the light from outside his bedroom blinding him momentarily. His girlfriend stood there in her night gown, her hands trembling. “Nolan, wake up. We have to go, now.”

Nolan sat up, rubbing his eyes vigorously. How long had she been trying to wake him? “What’s wrong? Its…” he turned to look at the red digital clock on his nightstand. “It’s three in the goddamn morning.”
