The Father of Her Child (A Naruto Fanfiction); by Sara Testarossa:
She didn’t know what to call him. Her savior, her companion, her friend, her lover – none of those seemed to fit. There was only one thing he was to her that she knew for certain.
The father of her child.
He had happened upon her in the woods, while her captors slept. She was so drained of chakra at that point that they hadn’t even bothered to set up a watch rotation to worry about her escaping. He could have carried her out, chakra restraints and all, and unbound her feet and wrists when they were a safe distance away.
Growth, Part 11 – Learning Curve, Part 2; by Grace R. Duncan:
Adel was a little afraid to speak, but when Bathasar raised his eyebrows, he gave in. “I thought you didn’t like that title?”
“When we are like this, when I am mastering him like this, I have him use the title. It emphasizes his subservience, reminds him who is in control. Though he knows, always, in the back of his mind that if he needed something to stop, if he was truly uncomfortable or something hurt, I would. I know him well enough now to recognize the signs.”
Adel nodded. That made an odd sort of sense to him.
The Marine – Adam Samuel Stevenson; R. Gebhardt:
I was in so much pain. I wanted the baby out right then and there. Dad drove me to the hospital and got me checked in. I made sure they knew Dad was the only male allowed to see the baby. I didn’t want Jason to come and take him from me. There’s no way I would let a gay couple raise my son.
The nurse got me settled in my room and I said, “My son will not leave this room. There’s a chance my ex will try to take him.”
“I will make sure that they know to keep an extra close eye on the baby,” she said.
“Thank you.” When she left I couldn’t keep the smirk off my face.
Always Chapter 9 – Part 2; by Lily G. Blunt:
Finally making my way back to my room, I felt nervous and embarrassed about facing Edward because I wondered what his reaction to me was going to be. I’d been a total wimp in the hot-air balloon, but my response to Jedd’s threats was despicable. I could see that now and I wanted to apologize for my inconsiderate behavior.
To my surprise, instead of Edward, Ellis was now sitting on my bed. I scanned the room, but it was obvious Edward was no longer there. My heart skipped a beat as I took in Ellis’s stern look.
“Seb’s taken him back to the house,” Ellis answered my unspoken question, maintaining the thunderous look on his face.
Say It With Strawberries, by Tray Ellis:
The old-fashioned bells jingled as the door to her cake shop opened and Lissa glanced at the clock. Five minutes until two in the afternoon and her wedding cake sampling appointment was early.
“I’ll be out in a moment!” she called into the main area and received a friendly confirmation from two voices, a woman and a man.
She took the time to clear the catalogs and order forms she had been working on. This would give her customers a few moments by themselves to peruse the shop and get comfortable before she approached them.
If You Love Something – Chapter 12; Picking Up Where We Left Off: by Lily Velden:
I hardly heard his quiet response to my birthday wish with the loudness of the blood thundering in my ears. We stood on the pavement, taking each other in, Jere with his head cocked to one side.
“I know this is going to sound ridiculous, man, but that’s what you are—a man. I mean, not a boy. Christ, I sound like an idiot. I think I might have sunk a few too many beers, and um, rum ‘n’ cokes. I’m not making sense, even to myself!”
