Secret in a Box for Story A Day May; Day Eight


Secret in a Box (in its 66 word entirety):

Marilyn keeps her secret in its box, tucked under the cushion of her couch. None of the housekeepers ever come in here; she makes sure they won’t ever want to.

Her secret is safe as safe can be – until a week later, when Anna serves eggplant parmesan. Though it’s her very favorite, Marilyn can’t eat. Before she can leave the table, she vomits out her secret.

What is Marilyn’s secret?

What happens next?

Any guesses?

Come back tomorrow for another installment, and we can explore this new story seed together!

This story comes a week after T’Pol’s previous story, I’m Just Joking.”

And now I offer you…

Was It My Attire?”

“Was it my attire?”

“Oh, Paula – or whatever your real name is- it’s got nothing to do with your wardrobe.”

“I don’t understand.”

“This time I believe you. But it doesn’t matter what you wear: an A-line skirt or Scottish tartan. Dripping in topaz and aquarmarine; a teardrop cut pink diamond or a psychedelic kaleidoscope clutch. You could have the tackiest of acrylic nail art -”

“Is there a point to this listing of these items?”

“Point is, doesn’t matter if you wore a burlap sack, silk robe, or catsuit – you give me goosebumps. You, my dear Vulcan, are luminous.”

Who is T’Pol speaking with?

How did the speaker figure out her secret?

Will there be consequences to being “outted”?

Any guesses?
