Book News: Sneak Peek

THE DOOR OPENED WITH A LOUD WHOOSH AND THE house was instantly filled with the voices of small children. A young boy and girl entered the house on unsteady feet. The shared blue eyes, copper hair and light brown-skin.
They made their way into the living room and over to the couch where Erik was taking a nap. They were too small to climb onto the couch so they tugged at his arm and tried to open his eye. Erik opened his eyes to look at them.
“What are you two doing here?” he asked.
“Get up daddy.” The little girl said.
“Tiffany, Junior, leave daddy alone.” Taurean said.
Erik sat up and found her standing in the doorway.
“How was your day?”
“It was fun. My dad didn’t get to spend too much time with them because he had to go in but my mom spoiled them.” She held up two large bags filled with toys.
Erik got up from the couch and walked over to her. He kissed her before taking the bags from her.
“Thank you,” she said. “Did anything other then sleep?”
“Of course.”
“Like what?” Taurean followed Erik into the front room that served as the kids downstairs playroom.
“I went over files for work. I had lunch. I straightened up. I got a call from the life insurance agency but I couldn’t find the old documents we keep.”
“There in the back of the closet in a box marked “Tiffany and Erik’s Papers’.”
“Oh.”
“Did you even look?”
“Uh…”
“I didn’t think so.” She laughed. “Get what you need and we’ll go out for dinner. Come one you guys. Let’s go and try to use the bathroom.”
Taurean walked out of the room with the kids and Erik walked into the walk-in closet. He found the stake of boxes in the back and moved a few until he found the one he was looking for.
Erik sat down on the couch with the box and removed the lid. He took the papers out, looking for the ones he needed for the insurance agency. Erik stopped when he picked up one of the documents. He read the paper and read it again to be sure that he had read it correct the first time.
He sat on the couch unable to move. He felt stuck. The information on the paper couldn’t be right, yet he was reading it with his own two eyes.
“Junior used the potty. Tiffany is still giving me trouble.” Taurean said as she walked into the living room behind the twins.
Erik didn’t respond. He didn’t turn to look at her. The twins ran by and into their playroom. Taurean walked over and sat beside him.
“Found what you needed?” She asked.
He still didn’t respond. Still didn’t turn to look at her.
“Are you okay?” She took the paper from him and looked at it. “Oh my God. Where did you find this?”
“It was in this box with everything else on the twins.” He finally spoke.”
“I can explain-“ She started.
“I would ask you why you would feel the need to have a paternity test done on the twins but there is only one reason why you would need to do that. I guess the important question is why did you have the twins tested against Tyrone?” He turned to look at her.

Hey Guys,

I completed my 500 words for today.

How do you feel about a sneak peek?

THE DOOR OPENED WITH A LOUD WHOOSH AND THE house was instantly filled with the voices of small children. A young boy and girl entered the house on unsteady feet. The shared blue eyes, copper hair and light brown-skin.
