The Realm Between Heaven & Hell
By J.S. Turner
Pregnancy was fun for Dawn. She transformed her extra bedroom into a nursery. She painted the walls bright yellow and the borders light green. Her mother bought her a mahogany crib and a jungle-themed crib set. When money allowed, Dawn bought stuffed baby animals and soft, plush, pastel blankets. What she enjoyed most about the pregnancy was that it was Tucker-free. After a few weeks in prison and finding out about the pregnancy, he wanted nothing more to do with Dawn.
She turned around, smiling after hanging a cloud, sun, and moon mobile on the side of the crib. She happily wiped her hands on her yellow sundress with satisfaction on finishing another project. Her calico cat meowed by her bare feet; she carefully bent over and picked him up.
“I feel like my life is finally turning around, Jimmy Bean,” she whispered into the scruff of the cat’s neck. He pawed playfully at her banana-shaped earrings before she bent over to put him back on the nursery floor.
“Ughh,” she grunted as she tried to push herself back to her feet. Ughh,” she said as she collapsed onto her knees. It felt as though someone had punched her in the stomach, and in an instant, a stomach cramp brought her down onto the floor. She felt the inside of her thighs grow warm. She brought her shaking hands to her face and screamed when she saw they were covered in blood. She knew she was going to lose the baby.
I was 25 years old before I figured out what I wanted to be when I grow up. I am not sure why it took me so long to take my love for writing seriously. After all, I have been at it for as long as I can remember. I remember the day I received my first journal and how great it felt to have someone finally understand me! I have a desk full of binders and folders packed with the beginnings of stories, ideas and tidbits. Writing is who I am. I guess the idea of doing what you love was a foreign concept
to me, but not anymore! ~Jessi
