Expecting

Amazing! Intelligent! Special! Gifted! If Kelsey heard one more compliment about Daniel, her fiancé’s nephew, she was going to scream or at least shove her fiancé’s untouched muffin down his throat. Daniel was only eight and everyone acted as if he was the greatest life form in the universe. 

“Hopefully it runs in the family,” her fiancé said. He reached across the table and slid his hand along the top of Kelsey’s, gripping her fingers gently. “I guess we’ll see soon.”

Kelsey feigned a smile to appease him. His grip tightened on her fingers. “Right?” he asked.

“Right,” Kelsey replied.
