Waves crashed about her ankles.
She was late.
Waves tugged at her thighs.
He didn’t want her.
Waves pulled her into the sea.
But, in a moment of perfect darkness, she found a tiny spark of light and life.
Fighting for breath, she broke free of the current; the crushing waves and freezing black with only that flicker of light to lead her. She thrust herself from the water, saltwater tears baptizing her face as she staggered back to the car, protectively cradling her stomach and the unborn life within.
