EXCERPT

Love, Secrets, and Absolution: An emotional and gripping psychological, family drama.

By K.L Loveley
Grace lifted Alfie out of the royal blue carrycot and gently rocked him in her loving arms, kissing each tear stained cheek, she whispered, ‘I love you, Alfie, I love you with all my heart and I always will.’ Her heart filled with such overwhelming love and devotion, and a determination to be the best possible mother she could be. However, she was already questioning whether she would be good enough for her darling boy.

‘Now, my sweetheart, it is time to leave the hospital. Your father has been working hard to make a nursery for you to sleep and play in.’ She cuddled him and then sighed ‘we are going home, and I for one am looking forward to sleeping in my own bed, with your father next to me. I haven’t slept well here, with all those screaming babies’, Alfie whimpered, and Grace reassured him, ‘Don’t worry, I will always keep you close by.’

She returned Alfie to the carrycot, covering him in the afghan blanket her parents had brought him. He cried immediately, and it got louder and louder. It was a piercing cry that hurt her ears and made her head spin. She began to panic. As Paul made his way towards them, he looked worried and asked, ‘Are you alright, Grace? Whatever is wrong with Alfie, his face is scarlet red, he looks very hot!’ Paul removed the afghan blanket, but Alfie continued to scream. ‘Perhaps he is in pain, what shall we do?’ Paul asked. Grace did not answer at first, and when she did, her voice was high-pitched and shaky.

‘I’m not sure, he has been fed and winded, his nappy changed. I really don’t know, it’s the first time this has happened.’ She tried hushing Alfie but no avail. ‘I don’t know what to do,’ she confessed, ‘perhaps I am not going to be any good at this. I feel all stressed and panicky over the smallest thing.’

Paul hugged his wife and took the carry cot from her, ‘Perhaps he will be settled when we get home, come on let’s go to the car.’ As they left the hospital, a fierce wind was blowing outside, so Paul put the hood up on the carrycot and secured the blanket again. Alfie continued to scream fiercely. With his free hand he held his wife’s tiny trembling hand, ‘Come on, Grace, let me drive you home.’
