Secret Admirer

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

Alex Rushmer: I like the intrigue that you introduce from the very beginning of the story. The idea of the girl waking up in the alley with no memory of how she got there and with injuries is very interesting. It was very well done. There were a lot of grammatical errors that need to be fixed though. I think t...

Diane April: Really liked the concept of this story. The beginning had a great explanation about how things worked in the real world that people tend to overlook. It was a nice change from the usual zombie story that just makes things up as they go along and actual facts don't matter.

pikagirl311: Katie Masters has definite skill when it comes to plot work and characters. The story is well-paced and pulls you along with the tide, keeping you hooked until the very end. The only reason I did not give it five stars across the board is due to a few minor quibbles with misspellings and such lik...

: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

Kiz16: After a truly shocking start to the story, I found the style and content slowed down as the author introduced a varied group of characters who I thought were fleshed out very well. After a slow couple of chapters, I found this story difficult to leave with the tension growing within the house. Yo...

skippybash12: This story has engaging characters that you care about and a plot that is unpredictable and exciting. It is well written with a believable voice. Great weekend escape and if there was a sequel available I would buy it today -

cicheah: Very well-knit story which sustains one's interest from beginning to end. Most enjoyable and a pleasure to read.

Ali Albazaz: I started reading "Caged" few hours ago and I'm on chapter 7 now. Caged is definitely one of the most addictive stories I've ever read. Thank you so much for writing this novel.

europeanlove: I gotta hand it to you. I love reading. I read books everyday. When the book is good I can read it in probably 13 hours. Your story was amazing. Great prose, very imaginative. Incredible dialogue. I am deeply impressed. Keep it up.
