Today, for letter C, I have an excerpt that I originally cut from chapter one. Though I like what I wrote, Hubby (who edits for me) felt it was best cut, so the chapter ends with Megan's realization she's pregnant.
So, here's Megan's initial thoughts on the life-changing news ...
I stared down at the result in my shaking hands, hardly believing it was true. It wasn't possible.
Something like this simply couldn't happen to me. There was no way the result could be positive – for starters I hadn't been in a serious relationship for over a year.
Then I remembered that night with Kian. I hadn’t even thought about protection, let alone mentioned it. How could I have been so stupid?
My whole future was planned out ahead of me – graduate uni, travel, get a job, buy my own place, find a nice guy, get married, settle down, have kids – children weren’t on my agenda for at least another ten years!
I flung back the toilet seat and puked my breakfast into the bowl.
This changed everything.
Thanks for reading. If you want to read the whole of chapter one, it can be found here.
And if you're interested, I'm blogging for Curiosity Quills Press today, for the A-Z Challenge, with what the literary world means to me.
Don't forget to check back tomorrow for D. Until next time!
