One Sizzling Touch (Eternal Bachelors Club #6) Never Fade (The Darkest Minds #2)

The horses in the parade come last, all decked out with red, white, and blue ribbons in their manes and tails, and the vet, perking up, points out the ones that he knows or has treated. Little Danny is amused by their droppings.

It made sense to me, not only because of the hair, but because of everything the boy who couldn’t grow up represented.I smiled, taking in the room. Seven kids today, all of whom I recognized from last week. Hey, guys, I marched into the room with a swagger a la Peter Pan. You ready to go on another adventure?

Twilight Memories (Wings in the Night #2)

Uh … Peter? Jan said, sounding amused.I looked over my shoulder. Yeah?Jan approached me and spoke in low tones. There’s someone else who wants to visit with ye today. Would ye mind? Her name is Sylvie. Her mum, Nicky, was a nurse here and Sylvie got used to being around us. Nicky passed away not too long ago. She lives with her uncle but her dad sees her when he can. She was supposed to be with her dad today but he had a work emergency and Sylvie asked to be dropped off here. It’s becoming a regular occurrence. We don’t mind. It’s the wee lass we feel for.

The Sword Of Bedwyr (Crimson Shadow #1)

It sounded like a terribly sad situation. I understood those. It’s definitely no problem.She disappeared to fetch Sylvie and I grinned at the room, my fists on my hips, my feet braced apart. Are you all ready?

What are ye reading today? Aaron quizzed from his place on the couch. He was holding an iPad in his hand, but his attention was on me.

Oh, I’m taking you on the best adventure today. Just you wait.Thirty minutes later, we cross the bridge over the Hope and speed down Main. Chester hasn’t said a word and is concentrating so hard on just keeping the old truck on the road that I dare not ask any questions. Dr. Blum just bounces up and down, loosely rocking between the driver and me, holding my leather nurse’s bag.

We turn at Sycamore, and pull up in front of an immaculate two-story brick home right behind the Saved by Faith Baptist Church. As I hop out of the truck carrying my medical bag and run toward the house, I hear crying—Eiiiiiiiiiii! Eiiiiiiiiii!—long screams and raised voices. There must have been a terrible accident.I don’t have long to find out. Mrs. Wade, Lilly Bittman’s mother, hurries out the front door.

Lament: The Faerie Queens Deception (Books of Faerie #1)

Miss Becky, thank God. Come in! Come in! Dr. Blum with you? That’s fine. Chester, sit with him out here on the porch. No, walk him around town. Just make yourself scarce. . . . Come in. Come in, she repeats, dragging me up the steps and down a long hall to the door of a bedroom. Before I enter, I take hold of her fleshy arm. What’s happened? The screams are horrible! Chester didn’t tell me anything, didn’t say a word.You’ve seen babies born, right?

My heart does a flip-flop and I immediately feel rather faint. You tried to find Patience?Yes. Yes. Chester already called at her house, but Mr. Hester said she’s down in Oneida attending a woman in labor and she’s been there two days. He said to get you. You’re like a midwife, aren’t you? Almost a midwife?

Well, that fine, dear. We just need someone. It’s Peaches Goody, the woman continues. She’s only twelve. Says she didn’t know she was pregnant, then her water broke in church and there was blood all over the place. I almost believe her, that she didn’t know she was pregnant, though it sounds incredible.A hundred questions flood my mind: Who’s the father? How big is the baby? How big is the girl? What’s the presenting part? Is the baby likely to be full term? How long has she been in labor? I’d like to run right home, but that isn’t possible, so I take a big breath and open the bedroom door.

What I expect to see is a young woman thrashing around on the bed, but instead find two older women hovering in front of a huge oak wardrobe, one tall and thin, one short and round, neither pregnant. They turn toward me with big eyes.Oh, thank the Lord, you’ve come, Miss Becky! says the tall one, whom I now recognize as the teacher, Marion Archer. Her hair is pinned back from her face and it’s a lot grayer than when I saw her five years ago.
