Getting pulled over for speeding--especially as fast as I was going--is anyone's nightmare. And desperate to get out of a speeding ticket that might not only get my license revoked, get me sent to jail, or get my car impounded, I lie.
I tell the biggest lie my brain can conjure up.
I tell the officer that my pregnant wife is in labor and panicking, and I'm rushing to get to her side. Mind you, I'm single--can't even remember the last time I had a girlfriend--and I sure as hell don't have a baby on the way.
The officer--not believing me--followed me to the hospital where I hope and pray I can find someone willing to let me use them to stay out of trouble.
When I find a pregnant woman alone and clearly in pain, will she help me, or will she laugh in my face and tell the officer to arrest me?

“My Pregnant Wife!”
Julian has been speeding when he uses the excuse that his non-existent wife is going into labour. And, surprisingly, when he gets to the hospital there’s a solo woman there in labour. And that’s how Helene and Julian meet. This story is quick and insta-love, but because of the way they met, it’s also super sweet and it feels more fulsome because of what they’ve gone through together. A delightful read.
