The Diamond





     I transferred another stitch over, looked again… gasping. My diamond! Disappeared from its setting!  

      I stood quickly, threw aside my knitting searching, panic ripping me to my core. Frustrated tears flowed.  

     Hidden within the plush carpet, my diamond twinkled mockingly.  Thank God!

Sweet Relief

      Two best friends contemplate the pregnancy kit with trepidation, carefully reading the instructions.   A positive result will change everything.  No college, no life, no man, reputation ruined, no future…oh God! 

     Seconds tick, sweat forms, breaths held.  Judgment comes:  sighs, tears, sweet relief.
