Paige stared at the pregnancy test, willing it to be wrong, to change colour to a safe blue. But it stayed red.

"Damn," she murmured to herself. She didn't want to believe it. But the thin strip of paper in her hand remained resolutely red. To be honest, it didn't really matter, Paige had known in her heart that she was pregnant and there was no doubt as to who the father was either.

He was leaving the village and he was so despondent, so overwhelmed with the idea that he might never return the way his father vanished that she had tentatively invited him to her bed and he took her virginity and she took his. It was a tentative, delicate exploration, a physical expression of the feelings that they had for one another.

And it was the reason she was currently pregnant. With a groan, she looked up at her dad, fishing by the lake. He was going to hit the roof.
