Alison woke up to the smell of antiseptic. She felt her stomach turn but was too weak to even get up and throw up

Instead she moaned softly and someone turned toward her

“Alison,thank God”Tonia said as she rushed to the door”Doctor!”

her parents and sister

Alison swallowed and shook he head



Suddenly she remembered.she had fainted because she had seen him

“Yes that’s usual for women in your condition”he said”its nothing to worry about”

“My condition?”alison frowned

“What do you mean,doctor”?her mom asked”is my child dying?”

“What early stage?”Julie asked confused”what are

“You,my young lady”he replied,then paused for effect”congratulations”

Alison quietly slid down her bed and she fainted
