Supernatural Gen Drabble: Uncertainties  
Title: Uncertainties
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: Mary (Gen)
Rating: PG
Summary: Belatedly written for the supernatural100 challenge #32 on “Firsts.”


She’d quit her job at the card shop two months ago, and the walls had been closing in ever since.

She readied the nursery, endured daily phone calls from her mother. Boy or girl, she wondered? Playful like her sister? Or serious and strong?

She busied herself with books and ideas—so many methods to raising children, and no two authors agreed! What if she was bad at being a mother? What then?

One morning a wave of pain hit her, growing hourly until her breath was gone.

“John,” she said, “it’s time.”

She left Fate to decide the rest.

:) Thank you! I believe this is my first Mary ficlet (her POV). This whole experience is one I can clearly empathize with. Except for the pesky mother part, but I have a friend who's dealing with that. ;)
