The Joys of Getting Pregnant or Sweet Little Angel from Hell by Jae El Foster

Toby has taken the best job – being paid to get a beautiful woman pregnant! Yet, things begin to turn sour between him and his new client when they keep running into each other at various places and get to see each other’s more ‘combative’ sides. While fuming over one such confrontation with the client, Toby is suddenly struck by a car and his world begins to change forever. He is given a business card that leads him to an abandoned warehouse where, once inside, he learns there is much more to this place than meets the eye. As Toby’s luck would have it, only his latest client can save him from what awaits him. What darkness lies within this old warehouse? What secret is his client hiding from him? Will this sudden adventure bring the two unlikely mates closer, or will it make Toby think twice about being her baby-maker? Find out the answers to these questions and more in this hilarious cutting edge tale of good versus evil!

EXCERPT ONE:

From The Joys of Getting Pregnant or Sweet Little Angel from Hell by Jae El Foster:

He stood outside the doors, trying to look in through the opening, but it appeared dark inside and he could see nothing.

“Hello?” he asked again, and still, he received no response. Finally, growing impatient, he pushed the doors open and allowed the rays of sunlight to brighten the interior.

For a building that had last served as a textile factory, what he saw seemed misleading. The sunlight brightened a long hallway that was lined with a red carpet and narrow wooden walls on either side.

Toby stepped inside and took two steps forward before turning around to the sound of the doors closing behind him. Now, with the sun blocked out, he was trapped in utter darkness.

“Okay,” he said, nervous and on guard as he turned in a circle. “Who’s there?”

At the end of the hallway, a single light flickered on, showing him that the hall ended with a turn to the right. Knowing he should just turn around and run, he decided against chickening out. He’d had such a bad run already that this adventure would either turn out better for him or just finish him all together. He knew one of those had to be the outcome, but the world was pissing him off and he was ready to face it, rather than hide from it.

Slowly, he walked toward the end of the hall and the flickering light that brightened it. There, he paused, looking down the right turn and seeing more of the same – nothingness through the darkness. Shaking off the nerves, he made the turn and continued.

Again, at the end of the hall, a light came on, this time illuminating a door. The door appeared to have a wooden frame with a frosted glass window. The window had writing on it, but from where he stood, he could not read it. So, with more timid steps, he approached it to read it.

“John Smith, Esquire,” read the lettering.

Although this made no sense to him – having an office and this sort of hallway in an old condemned factory – he was at least glad to see Mr. Smith’s name. That gave him a bit of confidence in that, perhaps, he had not fully had the wool pulled over his eyes.

Because of the frost glass, Toby could not see through the window to tell if anyone was inside or not, and so he knocked on the wooden portion of the door.

There was no answer. Of course there was no answer, he thought, shaking his head. It was Sunday. Even if this John Smith and his Chans Dyab Enterprises were real, they wouldn’t have been in this dark and abandoned building on a Sunday afternoon. Likely, the man was off golfing or playing a round or two of tennis. At least, that was what Toby thought rich business men did on their time off. Then again, he could have just been out hitting more people with his car.

As he turned to leave, the door clicked and opened just a few inches. The room seemed dark, but regardless of that, he pushed on the door and opened it fully. It illuminated as he stepped inside.

It was, indeed, an office. There was a grand mahogany desk with a chair that looked like it had cost Mr. Smith more than Toby’s baby juice had cost Roslyn. There was a tall file cabinet, two computers, and two guest chairs. A globe sat atop a bookshelf, and there was a window with the curtains closed at the far wall behind the desk. Although it was simply furnished, it felt posh – more executively exclusive than anywhere Toby had ever stepped into. It even smelled good.

The chair, he thought, looked too inviting. He looked around and behind him, ensuring no one else was in the room with him, and he walked to Mr. Smith’s chair, touching its soft warmth. Then, wondering what it would have felt like to have been a well-to-do businessman, he sat in the chair to get a feeling… to imagine his life being much better than it actually was.

The office door shut, securing him inside. Toby stood with a jolt of surprise.

GUEST POST:

‘A Melding of Worlds’

Greetings, and thank you for having me again! It’s always pleasure to be hosted by Fabulous and Brunette!

My story ‘The Joys of Getting Pregnant’ or ‘Sweet Little Angel from Hell’ was such a wild ride for me, creation-wise. While the story began as a simple tale about a sperm donor falling in love with his client, it quickly transformed into a dark comedy about the implications of knocking up a woman who happens to have a very powerful father.

Creating the backdrop of a story is one of my favorite aspects of writing, and this particular story gave me a melding of backdrops to work with. First and foremost, there’s the city. The city is where Toby – our protagonist – lives and works. The city is a cruel, hard place with bustling traffic, angry bosses, and bad drivers. Toby’s apartment in similar, in that it is shared with a sexually active hippie who offers an interesting cultural twist to the tale.

Primary backdrop number two is the abandoned warehouse building that Toby is sent to via the business card of a man that hits him with his car. The warehouse is nothing more than a ghost of what it once was – on first glance. On second glance, the building is an office complex for demons in suits, handling the dealings of souls and offerings.

The third main stage of this story is Hell – a seemingly unending pit of heat and fire, demons and sinners, and the angry father of the woman Toby knocks up. The backdrop of Hell had to be the most intricate of all because it needed to be displayed as something not quite like what has been portrayed before. Images of Hell and what it might look like have been crafted in literature and film for millions of years (okay, billions). Each writer got their opportunity to create their own version of Hell for readers or viewers to endure, and with this tale, I got mine.

The final notable backdrop for my story was church. The church had to be familiarly created in a way that most modern ‘mega-churches’ are laid out. It needed that large, echoing space for a key moment in the story to take place, and it had to have a lobby for an entertaining moment of comedy to happen – one that will surely give you a giggle or two.

The tricky part to having these great backdrops all in one story is that they have to be organic to the story. They have to be natural, and making an empty warehouse pass for a hopping office building, or transitioning from a drop through the fiery pits of Hell and into an office chair… those are transitions that have to be handled with drastic care in order to make sense. They must be woven together in a way that keeps the flow and the story moving without allowing the reader an opportunity or a desire to question how it could be.

I think I’ve done that… I hope I’ve done that. I’m almost certain I’ve done that, but as always, I’ll leave that up to the reader.

‘Falling for You’ is a fabulous anthology of romantic comedies and chick lit (yes, even the story I just described!) and I know my fellow authors involved are just as proud of it as I am. This anthology is an absolute perfect Halloween read, or really for any time of year. Speaking on behalf of myself and the others, we have given you our best; we sure hope you like it.

Until next time!
~ Jae El
