When she turns to me, she has that damn pincushion on her wrist again, and I swear to God, my balls shrink in on themselves.
Wrath nodded. You can bet your ass on that one.Beth rolled her eyes, but inside, she didn’t mind him being pushy at all. Her husband was going to take excellent care of her—whether or not she was carrying his child.
