‘It’ll be finished in time.’
Each week, my scepticism expands along with my tummy. It’s Roger’s fault, always trying to save pennies.
Mum warned me. ‘A first date at a burger bar should tell you something,’ The next morning, I tried to describe his wit and academic prowess but her lips pursed. She held back further criticism; however her eyes said it all.
Defending him is second nature and many say that I deserve better.
Next week my newborn becomes Roger’s heir. Before long, I will be a widow and the serious building work can start.
