i never share my writing as i’m creating it, but i was very impressed with this paragraph when i read back through, so i thought i’d share. keep in mind, it is very raw and needs some editing.
preface: Drew and his girlfriend, Kelley, have just found out she is pregnant and revealing it to the parents has been very challenging. they are eating cake.
we ate the entire thing before crawling into our old bed together. without words, we just moved into a spoon position, my body arching around hers. i let my hand rest on her belly and she interlocked her fingers into mine. i fell asleep dreaming of what it might feel like to have life kicking around underneath my palms.
