Excerpt from one of my short stories (WIP)
“Look at all the baby books Michael. I have so much more reading to do. I’m going to be a mom soon!” And with those words, Sonali gently pat her hollow stomach and looked up at Michael with her wide, gleaming eyes. She clutched the book against her chest and for the first time in months, she smiled with immense pleasure.
Michael looked at her with great sadness. He felt a tear roll down the right side of his face. All this time he had thought that the books were helping her to move on. Instead, that evening he realized that what he had really bought her all these months, was her own insanity.
