Eden sat quietly contemplating the bush as the crimson buds burst into American Beauties against the deep green leaves. She burst into fresh tears, not tears of sorrow, but tears of joy. Eden and Edward Greenfield had been trying for two years to no avail and now she was past the danger point. 

“I’m so happy, sweetheart,” Edward said upon learning the news.

Eden, beaming, responded, “I guess we were just trying too hard.”

“What about a name?” Edward asked.

Eden looked contemplative again, “Rose.”

“Perfect,” he said, handing her one of the long-stem Beauties.

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
