I'm still working on part 3 of Anton and Lenora, All Things Returned. In this week's snippet, poor Lenora is in a bad way.
I managed as far as the end of Edward’s street. I could see the Norris house two doors down and I increased my stride, thinking myself close to my goal. A pain ripped through me, so strong it robbed me for a moment of my breath. It was followed by another and another, hard knots of pain coming in waves. I bent double as though to shelter my unborn child from these blows. I feared it more than the pain in my limbs, for I knew it for what it was.
“No,” I whispered as though the force of my will could stop what happened. My body ignored my pleas and the pains kept on.
