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!


I am myself. I own my life, and live with three other people who own theirs. My intention is to do only those things that bring me joy, and to give myself wholly to those things I do. Writing has been my passion throughout my life, and this will become the home for my writing life...because it brings me great joy!
