                              I wonder if the male character knew the woman was pregnant and if it would have affected his decision to leave.

 #MBC Interesting to see that their romance is one that needed to be hidden. My first thoughts are infidelity, but it could very well be something different. 
                              
                              At 'too close' your subject should probably be 'they' to match the earlier subject 'rays'.

                              Now I’m really starting to think that she’s going to find his body...

                              I think again, you are doing a great job of building on the metaphor. I did find the last two sentences clunky to read. For example 'away from the warm glow of romance she had found herself embraced when she met him.' I think perhaps 'away from the warm glow of their romance' is enough.

 #MBC I really have no idea haha. I do agree with the other guesses that the child will be a big part of this story.

                              What!! She’s pregnant! I didn’t see that coming! So much more suspense!
