This is the corrected version, thank you Astrid Goes For A Spin :)

My arms hurt after a long and laborious day in the kitchen, helping Marthe. I had helped her skin the rabbits, first recoiling at the thought but then getting used to it. The sight, the smell, the sound of the knife cutting the skin, tearing it. The worst part was the touch. The feeling of rabbit fur under your fingers, soft and innocent, to reveal the bloody red muscle underneath.

We would have raw rabbit for dinner. Well, Matthew would. He had not had a drop of blood since his last hunt, three weeks ago and he would have to get some nutrients into him. He refused to drink any of my blood while I was with child-or with children should I say-even though I was profuse with it. I almost missed him feeding from me, it had kept us close. Now he was hardly ever there, demanding that I rest for the children's sake. I always disobeyed. It did not feel right to let Marthe do all the work. Yet every evening I was reminded that it was her job and when Matthew had finished scolding me, he would storm downstairs. I would hear the shouts and the snarky comments made by Marthe, reminding him that "Elle sera bien"; she will be alright. I smiled to myself.

I was going to be alright.

I placed a hand on my stomach.

We would be alright.

Matthew came back into my room and saw me, saw my hand on my abdomen.

"They will be fine." he whispered and placed his hands over mine, cradling my little baby bump.

I felt my happiness combust and fill my entire body as his breath warmed my neck and his words filled my mind. I couldn't help but anticipate the future, I would have a family. The de Clermont family would have new kinsmen. I would be a mother...

star_powered: Off Pitch is a fun and sexy lesbian romance filled with incredible humour (one of the few stories that has ever made me laugh out loud), heart-wrenching drama, and lots of fluff. The story respects and normalizes the wlw experience and doesn't resort to victimizing the main characters for plot de...

CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel.

catd69: Karim is a very talented writer. When I started reading his journey it took me into the book and I was in the story till the end. I've never felt this way with any other writers stories. If you want to read a gripping adventure, this will be the one book I would suggest you pick.

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...
