Hello everyone and welcome to Saturday Spankings! Today for the first time I'm going to share a snippet from my new Corbin's Bend series 2 novella The One She LOVES. We first met Carol and Crystal in Leading The Way. Please keep in mind that this is still unedited.
In this conversation, Carol and her friends from Leading The Way are having one of their coffee sessions. The talk turns to pregnancy and birth. At first Carol is a little bored but then it dawns on her that she may have actually missed out on something by not being the one to carry her daughter or to give birth.
“I felt instant love when Brianna was born.” She tried to keep the defensiveness out of her voice but it was hard. It grated on her when people assumed that she wasn't just as much of a mother to Bri as Crystal. There had been some resentment. Such a tiny bit that she'd been able to push it away when it surfaced. She had felt joy, but it had been Crystal's tummy the baby had been placed on the minute her daughter was born. It was Crystal's breast that she had suckled. When Crystal went back to work she became the Mommy but it was still Crystal's expressed milk that gave their daughter sustenance.
“And maybe that will be enough for you.” Sienna said.
“Hmm.” Carol said. “You know what? I don't think it will. I think I would like to give birth.”
