"I'm not an invalid, you jackass," she muttered for the fifth time. She was lucky if he'd let her get up to pee without him insisting on holding her hand. Obviously he was nervous since it was his first kid, but it was getting a bit ridiculous. Not to mention last night with all the crap at Merlotte's. She shook her head and sighed again, peeking around the corner to see if he was somewhere that he couldn't see her; she could smell Lala's gumbo in the air and she wanted some. Come hell or high water, she'd get it too!
Sam was in the bathroom, so she figured she had about 45 seconds to get to the living room, out the door and across the parking lot before he saw her. Stepping out of the bedroom, she gently shut the door behind her and quickly walked to the door leading outside, wincing as the trailer creaked. "Geez, I'm not that big yet." Reached for the screen door and gently pushed it open, wincing again and stopping for a split second.
