Chapter 2.34: Not Today

“Honey,” I whispered, “stop. You know how we got Lexie.”

“We’ll use protection. Selena, sweetie.”

“Derek, it’s failed before.”

“Would that be so bad?”

“You won’t be the one pregnant for nine months.” I laughed. “Honey, I’m kidding.”


“Let me put Addie to bed.” I said.

He smiled. “Ok.”

I walked up the stairs, wondering how I got so lucky. An amazing husband and two precious little girls. It was what I’d always wanted.

“…and then the dinosaurs swam around, splashing each other…” I read.

Addie babbled, “Again, again, mama!”

“How Elly the Dinosaur got a pool…” This was Adelaide’s favorite story. I read it every night. I bet I had it memorized. I read her one story, while Derek read her another.


“Good night, Addie.” I whispered.

Out of everything I’d thought I’d wake up to, this wasn’t one.


This. I didn’t expect to wake up to this. My husband… dead.

“Please, you can’t do this! He has two young daughters, a toddler, and a baby!”

The Grim Reaper spoke coldly. “Do you think I care… let’s see… Selena Clemonte?”

My eyes filled with tears. “Please! I love him!”

“Ha. Love is useless. But… you’re in luck. I happen to want to piss off my boss today, so I’ll let your husband live.”

“Thank you. Thank you thank you thank you.”

“Don’t thank me. I don’t want to lose my job, so I’ll be back tomorrow.”

I forgot about tab mode LOL, but I was just surprised that he was revived!


“Derek! Oh Watcher, I thought I lost you.”

“Watcher, sweetie. I love you so much.”

It was at that moment that Adelaide decided to waddle in. I picked her up and we all walked to the kitchen. I put her down to go get her applesauce, when Derek grasped my hand.




“I’ve learned a few things about kissing since we first met, baby.”

“Wow. I love you so much.” I suddenly groaned. “Pull me up…”

“What’s wrong?”

“Sorry. I’m just spaced out right now.” I slid my hand up to his shoulder. “I just wasn’t feeling so good. I’m fine now.”
