Short Story

I got out of my bed and sat there for a moment contemplating my life. Today is February 1st and it was almost Valentine’s Day. Still with no one to share it with. Maybe I was met to be alone.

I opened my front porch to fetch the newspaper.

What is this?

I picked up a yellow envelope that was sitting on my mat. I opened it and inside was a letter signed to me:

Dear Coby,

I have a confession to make. I have loved you since the first day I laid eyes on you. I can’t tell you who this is but in time you will know. Look out for more letters.

P.S. Will you be my Valentine’s?

Love,

Secret Admirer

I couldn’t believe it. I have a secret admirer. Maybe things will look out for me.

The letter wasn’t lying. Every day I have received letters after letters.

I think I am falling in love.

Today is February 14th and for the first time in my life I was happy.

I picked up the last letter and ripped it opened. A piece of my favorite chocolate appeared inside. How did they know? I plopped it in my mouth and unfolded the letter:

Dear Coby,

I will finally tell you who I am. I know this will be hard to understand but I am you, and you are me. I wanted you to feel loved and special for once.

P.S. That chocolate you just ate, well there’s poison in it. I know you were too much a coward to do it. So I did it for you.

Love,

One of your multiple personalities

mray2174: I did like this story. I would totally recommend it to a friend, but it didn't seem like a book. Your writing style reminded me of a fan fiction writer, always adding in tiny details and making things like "Oh, my name is [name that no one would ever name a child] and here is my life story. Oh, d...

Kimberly Mills: Great book. Liked the characters and plot. Very enjoyable

happypuput: Whoa.. Your story is so fantastic. Can't stop myself reading it until there's nothing left. I wish there would be a sequel to this or not? Nevertheless, your story gives me a mixed feeling. I love it, yet I'm so desperate.

Amy Reddyy: Omg I love it need the next book now I'm addicted

fafa: One of the rare books where I didn't skim any chapters or skip straight to the end. All the characters were so well defined and likeable that I actually want a freakin sequal!

Lou Staehle: Loved the story, loved the main character Grin. The humor & "blasphemy" was right up my alley...But It left off suddenly, & I'd really love to read the next book, & would happily pay for it...Just please finish the story!

MrsHickey: It was good, would make a good teen/young adult novel

Mavrick I: Yes really good papa blessed this book. kept me entertained and slightly a roused I recommend to anyone and everyone

AudreyInAshes: I think this book is a really great modern-age thriller. The idea of the drug and its symptoms were explained generously, and while I did really enjoy this I just want to add that there is some mild gore and the killing of a pet (sorry to spoil, but I like to be prepared.) It is very interesting,...
