Drabble War March 2012

If you are interested in participating in a future "War of the Words" then come on over to the Drabble War Forum group on Facebook. In the docs, there are sign ups available for every month this year. "Wars" will take place on the middle weekend of each month. It is first come, first serve so come on over and claim your spot. We hope to see new "faces" each month!

The Drabble War Forum is not for authors only…it's also for the readers who want to follow along with the wars. It is a central place to meet and discuss the stories as they are posted. With each round, banners and summaries will be posted in the group as well as links to author profiles.

Simply Promised

Chapter 1

Renee POV

"Push, honey... Push!"

I look towards my right, directly where I know his crotch is located and think about hitting him there.

No niceties today... none.

I"m dying on this godforsaken hospital bed while his child demon tries to rip its way out of my small body.

I can't... I can't... It's ripping me apart!

"One more push, Renee," says Dr. Cullen, encouragingly.

That's it!

"You said one more push three fucking pushes ago!"

And if that doesn't get my point across, then I'm sure the growl I just made did its trick.

Dr. Cullen gets to work faster and then...

Unfuckingbelievable pain...

OH... MY ...GOD!

And just like that, relief enters my body as the cries of the baby fill the room.

I'm too tired to look.

I've never, ever done anything this hard in my life.

I'm never, EVER doing is again.

The nurse places the baby on my chest. She's heavy for such a small little thing.

Clear light skin color, rosy cheeks and nose. Small puff of brown hair covered in some type of nasty goo. Her eyes are grey, and I pray they turn like mine... ocean blue.

"Isabella," I whisper. "Isabella Marie Swan."

She is so beautiful and worth the pain.

Charlie's arms wrap around the two of us and when he smiles down at both of us with tears in his eyes...

I know, I feel it too.

Yes, very worth the pain.
