I've been emailing a friend about my story-getting advice and what not-and when I was going over what's to happen and a bit of the back-story, she suggested a prologue since I do have a few things needed to know before the story starts. I really didn't want to have a prologue, plus I thought the prologue might be too short-maybe like a page or so. I was thinking maybe I could just add it into the story, maybe blend it into the first chapter somehow.

Because of the fact that it would be short and that I could possibly blend it into the story, should I have a prologue? Or should I not worry about it?
