Snow Day Baby by Amy Vastine

Sheridan Colfax is eight months pregnant and snowed in at the airport on Thanksgiving weekend. With a little help from the former geek turned handsome doctor, Scott Spencer, she finds the perfect heartwarming Thanksgiving moment to share with the world.

Read it HERE!


“Everything okay?” he asked.

“My battery is almost dead thanks to Holly’s five million texts. And every charging station in this airport is full.” Sheridan put her hand on her lower back; her discomfort was clear.

Scott unzipped his backpack and rummaged through it for his portable charger. “Here. Use this.”
“Seriously?” Relief softened her face immediately.

“Absolutely.” He was happy to help. Even though she refused to go to prom with him, she had been nicer than most.

She took out her laptop. “I should really take advantage of the extra time and get some work done.”
Scott hoped the delay wouldn’t lead to a cancellation. The interview his father had arranged for him at St. Agnes was today. They wouldn’t look kindly upon him asking to reschedule. Being the son of Dr. Bradley Spencer wouldn’t get him any more special favors than it had.

“What do you do at E-Pulse exactly?”

Sheridan pulled her hair over one shoulder. She had been a pretty girl who turned into an absolutely beautiful woman. Pregnancy looked good on her. Her skin was flawless and those green eyes had always been capable of taking his breath away.

“Well, someone should have told me to forget about Algebra and ditch Physics because I make a darn good living surfing the web and playing on social media all day long.”

“So, basically your job is to do what everyone else does when they’re trying to avoid doing their job?”

“Pretty much. My official title is Social Media Editor. What that means is I search the internet for stories or videos and turn them into posts or articles that are then shared on our company’s social media accounts. For example, this weekend my assignment is to find something that reflects the ‘heartwarming nature of the Thanksgiving holiday’.”

Sheridan had never been very confident about her abilities in school, but Scott had believed she was smarter than people thought. She was creative and socially savvy -- traits that didn’t always pay off in the classroom but seemed to be exactly what she needed to be successful in her career.

“Our jobs are so different,” he concluded.

“Only if you think saving lives isn’t the same as entertaining millions of 18- to 34-year olds with videos of babies who giggle when their dads belch,” she said with a straight face.

Amy Vastine has been plotting stories in her head for as long as she can remember. An eternal optimist, she studied social work, hoping to teach others how to find their silver lining. Now, she enjoys creating happily ever afters for all to read. Amy lives outside Chicago with her high school sweetheart-turned-husband, three fun-loving children, and their sweet but mischievous puppy dog.
