Saturday Centus - The Stick

This week Jenny had no tricks up her sleeves.  We are back to our standard 100 words plus the 3 word prompt, which this week is "Surprise, I'm pregnant" ...  my little offering has clocked in at 101 words.  I hope you enjoy it!


She stared at the stick in horror, “surprise, I’m pregnant,” she thought to herself.  This wouldn’t be so utterly horrifying if she hadn’t just ended her 2-year engagement.  Oh god, this is going to tie me to the cheating liar for the next 18 years … no for a lifetime … oh geez, I will never be free of him … my poor baby is going to be saddled with this loser as a dad, wait, my baby … my baby!!!  I’m having a baby!!!   Don’t worry sweetie, she said talking to her fetus, we are going to be just fine!

Now scamper off and read some other wonderful & amusing stories by the many talented people that play Saturday Centus ... just click on the Jenny button below to find these tales!

I'm with Sue. The turnaround was the perfect maternal thing to do. Really nice writing.

I suspect that the cheater will not want to own up, so she had better collect a little dna before she gives him the news.

Jo, you are sooo maternal!!

Excellent job !

The heart of a true mother will always focus her love and energies on her child....and deal with the Ex as little as possible !!!

Bummer. I'd set some rules down. Or maybe not even tell him at all if he is that stinkin bad. ~Ames

Dazee Dreamer said...

maybe the sorry excuse of a fiance will run off and be a deadbeat dad. Then she wouldn't have to worry. I know, I know. that is the wrong feeling.

Great post.
