I’ve had the man inside of me and I have no idea what’s under that. How depressing. Especially when the man is on my shit list. I don’t even know what he is doing here. Last time I saw him was when I was threatening him with bodily harm and stormed out of his shop. ” I push our hot sex out of my head and brush off his hotness. “I have to run. ” I wave and start the short walk home. ” she asks, but I decline; the fresh air is great after working long hours. “No, I’m good,” I smile, and wave her off.
I want to scream and shake it out of her to admit she is lying, but I don't. I feel lost. Broken. My daughter lies dying in this hospital and my wife just told me she isn't even mine. Three words. What is it with three words? Acute Myelogenous Leukemia. Chemotherapy wasn’t successful. Keira isn’t yours.

She huffs her annoyance, but I don’t respond. Instead, I take off out of the lot, ready to be done with this night, knowing I should never have played with fire.
