I hope this will wet your taste buds. The emotional intensity in this short section will hopefully keep you ready for the debut of book two "To Wed...or Not to Wed".
If you haven't read my first book in the series "Lost River's Carnival" you still can get it at Lost River's Carnival paper back or get the e version at Lost River's Carnival.
Arriving back at the NIC Unit, there was a lot of commotion around Crystal. “What’s going on?”
“She quit breathing, but I think we have it under control now.”
“Get her father in here, STAT. If we can’t have her mother, then we’ll have to hope there is enough of a connection between father and baby to have some benefit, since he’s been here every day to be with her.”
In the meantime, Heaven was refusing to sleep. “I have too much to do. I don’t have time to sleep. Let me out of here,” she was yelling. “I have funeral arrangements, a friend to care for, and a daughter who needs me. Set me free!”
Getting no response, Heaven began to beat on her door and walls. Still not getting anyone’s attention, she collapsed on to the floor in a heap, sobbing. This pattern repeated itself all throughout the night.
Dr. Hoyett came in to see her, early the next morning. “How are we feeling today?”
“We are feeling miserable. We didn’t sleep much last night. We have things to do and places to go, so we need to get out of here, now!”
“Calm down, Hun.”
“Calm down? You expect me to calm down? My one true love got married to someone else, I had to find a home for my best friend, I lost a child and his father is injured. Would you mind telling me what exactly it is I have to be calm about? My son’s funeral is coming up. Let me out of here so I can prepare,” Heaven screamed through her angry tears.
“Heaven, I can’t let you attend Johnathan’s funeral tomorrow.”
“I’m sorry, but I just don’t think you can handle it.”
“How dare you! You cannot stop me from going. I have rights! You’re fired!”
