Sunday Snippets is a Blog Hop of sorts, a chance to sample a segment of an author’s work. Today I’m sharing a final snippet from my novel, Secrets and Lies, published by Books We Love. I really enjoyed writing this one. Hope you enjoy it!
He left her alone for a few minutes while he went to the store, and when he returned he slapped a small box on the nightstand next to her bed.
"What is that?" she asked groggily.
"An early pregnancy test. Read the instructions and take it." Try as he might, he knew his tone was not pleasant.
Natalie appeared surprised. "Why would I…we said we were going to wait…" she looked at him. "Oh my God."
He felt his eyes brim with tears. "Just take it, please. I have to know. We have to know."
She sat up and looked at the box. "Oh, Alex, no. It can't be. I can't be!"
He picked up the box and thrust it at her. "Go find out."
She opened the package and read the instructions. "It says to use first morning urine."
"We're not waiting until morning. Do it now."
She looked at him with wide, frightened eyes.
"Please," he added carefully.
She nodded and took the test into the bathroom, emerging a few minutes later. "Five minutes."
"Okay." He nodded and paced the room.
