A Sunday Tease....

Since you're all dying from the last update ; )  here is a tease of the next chapter.  I expect it to be up sometime this week.  In the meantime, I hope this helps you through!


Regan pressed herself against me, a tiny sigh escaping from her lips as she felt my aching body against hers.  I winced inwardly.  I didn’t want this to seem like a booty call - it really wasn’t.  I just wanted to be near her so that my freaking body would calm itself down for an hour or so.  My skin absolutely crawled when I wasn’t near her. 

I just wanted to feel okay again.

Regan sighed into my mouth, leaning back into my arms.  I clasped her warm body against mine, painstakingly breaking our kiss. 

“Tell me,” I repeated.

She sucked in a short breath. 

“It’s nothing.  Just….I don’t want to talk right now.  I just….I feel so…”

“What?” I asked, looking down at her. 

She stared up at me, her green eyes pleading and scared at the same time.

“I’m scared.”

“Why?  Regan….I’ll do anything to keep you safe…”

My mind raced.  Why was she scared?

“I know that…that’s not….no…”

“Tell me,” I pleaded again.  I could feel her pulse racing through her skin as I held her small hands in mind.  Her heart throbbed in her chest; I could hear it.

“Seth I…..I think I’m pregnant.”

My knees threatened to buckle.  My breath escaped my throat, feeling as if it was sucked from me.  My throat tightened, threatening to cut off all air. 


She gulped, breaking our eye contact.  She shifted from one foot to the other before blinking up at me.  A large tear, followed by another slid down her cheek as she began to tremble.
