first drabble ever!

I hereby eat everything I've ever said about never writing a drabble. My new word processor counts words as I go, so I pretty much had to :)

elly427, consider it an angst down payment.

As always, let me know what you think!

TITLE: "Two Words"
RATING: PG
CATEGORY: drabble, Sam/Jack, future, angst, romance
SPOILERS: "Heroes," "In the Line of Duty"
LOVE TO: besyd beta'd, and rules.

SUMMARY: One in five pregnancies ends in miscarriage.

They were just getting used to the idea.

A man parted the curtain, and her heart choked. He didn't ask.

He already knew.

"I'm sorry," she whispered, like it was her fault.

In two steps Jack reached her, and held her like he would never let go.
