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

Barbara Zavela: Do you know the song, 'Imagine' by John Lennon?If you had a chance for a world like the one described in that song, would you grab it with both hands or turn away and reject it.This story pulls you in from the beginning with well-written scenarios. The author offers you the opportunity to bring y...

Arabella: The catchy blurb caught my attention. The story is creepy but I would not qualify it as a horror story. The characters are likeable and I’m impatiently waiting for new stories from Obsidian Fae.

harry142018: 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.

voovoo2003: I love everything about your story is was amazing. The plot and the way everything was put to together is wonderful, PLEASE!! Tell me there's more to the story is can't end the way it did. I was shocked and in need of the rest

TheGhostWritter: I enjoyed your book, great plot, random twists and great characters, Loved it, One suggestion is to keep paragraphs short, at one point I might have begun skipping paragraphs because they became a little to long, bit other wise great book, brilliant plot, and bloody amazing thriller.

Girl on Fire: Great story, line Alex!!!It really has a edge on it. It put me on edge with its thrill. Can't wait to read the rest.!!!
