Baby's Breath - by Sydney Leigh - Disturbingly delightful short story
Originally a limited edition chapbook from by Villipede Publications. Baby's Breath is a terrifying story of a relationship falling apart after an unexpected pregnancy.
Ben and Diane seem to be very much in love, but once a baby is on the way things become less than ideal.
Baby's Breath is subtlety disturbing. What I really loved about this tale is the tone of Diane as she tells her story. Sweet, innocent, the voice of a loving mother, but Oh. My. God.
A delightfully demented quick read, Baby's Breath is available now at Amazon.com in a newly formatted, paperback, second edition, from Villipede Publications, with e-book to follow.
