Claudia/Had to Know
Today was the day. It would be a test, one her friend warned her against trying. Jerrod wasn’t ready for a baby, but Mallory’s biological clock was running out. Jerrod had every reason in the book for not starting a family while he promised he would someday. Was he faking his true feelings? Mallory had to know.
That evening she met Jerrod at the door, looking chipper, and with a chilled glass of red wine in her hand.
Surprise! I’m pregnant!
Jerrod’s expression turned to stone. Resentment charged through his eyes, anger rumpled his lips, Mallory’s answer was written all over his face.
