Miscarriage

Late again! I swear I am going to get better about posting on time for this thing…

Anyway, if all of you lovely readers will forgive me for my tardiness, here is my Friday Fictioneers for last week!

A special thank you to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for providing the prompt and to Marie Gail Stratford for providing this week’s photo.

Miscarriage

Carolina stood in their wine cellar, staring at the sunlight streaming through the multicolored bottles. Her left hand crossed her chest and held onto her shoulder while she idly traced circles on her stomach with her right hand.

“What are you thinking, Carolina?” Her husband’s voice was soft in her ear as he walked up behind her.

She didn’t answer. Instead, a single tear slid down her cheek as she turned to face her husband.

“Oh my darling,” he said, gathering her in his arms. “We’ll try again as soon as the doctor says you’re well enough.”

More tears fell.

    1. I know several people who had had miscarriages, and whether it is the first or in between children, it’s always terribly sad. The husband has done all he can for his wife, and hopefully she won’t have to suffer this grief again. Thanks for reading.

Tell me what you think!
