die for the camera

Bethe Marchant, 25, Leeds Arriving at my boyfriend Stefan’s house, I peered up at the tiny black eye watching my every move. The CCTV camera over the front door swivelled round. It was May 2019 and Stefan, then 28, had installed the equipment before we’d got together. ‘They’ll put off burglars,’ he told me. And they did make me feel safer when I came to stay with him. That night, me and Stefan headed out for dinner. I felt so lucky to have him. We’d first met at a bar in September 2018. Kind, caring and polite, he was everything I was looking for in a partner. And with his fit physique towering over 6ft, he wasn’t harsh on the eye, either. I was always daydreaming about our future together. The day we’d marry, our children together... But as I beamed at…

Is there more than one?’ I joked. ‘I’m not supposed to tell you this until the doctor comes,’ she replied with a smile. ‘But yes, there are two babies!’ Bursting into giggles, I couldn’t believe it. I know I’d asked...but I wasn’t expecting that! It was June 2018 and I’d managed to fall unexpectedly pregnant. See, I already had one baby, Ar’mani, with my ex-partner Curtis. We were childhood sweethearts, but split up after Ar’mani was born in January 2017. We loved being parents to our little girl, but our relationship didn’t work. Still, we stayed living together for our baby. Except being in the same house meant things could…
