She felt her body calescent, the sheets sticking to her body. Suddenly struck by paroxysm, her temperature rocketed and she felt like a tea kettle about to boil.
She focused on the window, desperately wishing to feel the breeze tickling the trees outside.
She saw her mother kneel by her bedside, gently mopping her forehead.
When she raised her head, she felt dizzy, but the sense of that cool damp cloth against her skin brought comfort and release as she heard the first cries of her newborn child.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
