Bronwyn's WIP Friday
Its nearly time for my next book to be released so I thought I’d give you an excerpt from book 2
Ben’s Wolf Surprise is book 1 in the Second Pack of Cameron series, it’s a paranormal m-preg, and will be released on the 1st of September.
This excerpt I’m showing you is from book 2 Tentative Steps forward (please remember it’s still in first drafts and therefore not edited in any way)
Womp womp womp womp.
Womp womp womp womp.
Ben held his breath, then realised it probably wasn’t a good idea since he had a baby inside him. Living, growing. Heartbeat. A heartbeat.
Ben’s chest hurt, heaved as he looked at the machine where the sound was coming from.
Womp womp womp.
Muffled but in turn. Ben wanted to believe the sound wasn’t coming from inside him, but at this point there wasn’t any denying it.
Was he still denying this pregnancy thing? Probably, it wasn’t like he’d ever thought he’d be pregnant. But shit man, there was a heartbeat coming out of his belly.
Shad took in a deep breath next to him, sighing it out in a soft wistful breeze.
Ben lower lips wobbled, his eyes became pools.
God he was a sappy bastard.
Huh. He was pregnant. With a baby. His and Shad’s baby.
The lady took the microphone off his stomach and Shad ran his hand against the pale skin, slowly. So slowly, it felt like awe as he leant down and gave Ben a soft kiss on the lips.
“Can you believe it?”
“No.” Ben laughed against a sob.
“So everything seems fine. You and your baby are healthy.”
Ben took in a huge breath as he sat himself up. He nodded as got up, because he didn’t know what to say. Not sure what he was meant to say.
“Good.” Shad did that sigh again, his hand ran up and down Ben’s back. He was comforting, made him not want to curl up in the other man’s lap and just stay there until all of this was over. But not, plenty more to do today, this week, the months to come.
The lady with the machines messed around then, fixing everything up so she could trot back towards her side of the lot, back towards the Cameron Pack house, leaving them alone in the shell they were going to call home.
Ben’s eyes pricked up again as he swallowed hard around a lump.
“And that’s it boys, I’ll be back next month for the next scan.”
“Right,” Shad coughed. “So is there anything we need to know. Anything we should be doing to make sure Ben and the baby stay healthy?”
The lady chuckled lightly, Ben was sure it was because she thought this side of Shad cute as all hell. She was right, he was, but even though Ben couldn’t remember her name, he was sure Shad had grown up with her, or she’d been around while Shad grew.
“You are both doing fine. And whatever Ben’s needs he’s body will let you know. My guess is that he’ll want meat. Lots of it.”
Shad nodded. Just a bobbing head, a short sharp up and down as the lady chuckled again, swinging her bag over her shoulder and headed out the door.
“Here, I’ll walk you out.” Shad spoke as he got up and walking towards the door.
“Of course. And congrates Ben,” She said, her head popping back into the room.
“Ah, thanks.” I think.
And now you’ve read mine, you can go and see what April’s showing us this week.
