Writing Prompt: Evasive Action

What’s the most significant secret you’ve ever kept? Did the truth ever come out?


I am one of those people who is unable to keep any kind of secret, I do not want to  overburden my already tired mind,it can explode any time. 

There are some people who love keeping secrets, once my husband’s friend told him that his niece was getting married and my husband was asked to keep it a secret,  my husband didn’t tell any one. One day the friend visited us and he was talking about his niece’s wedding, I was surprised I said, “I didn’t know your niece was  getting married?”

Wide eyed he replied, “don’t tell me you didn’t know.” Then he turned around and said,

“I didn’t  mean not to tell your wife.”

So this is the example of my husband.

Then there was  my Dad, he worked for the federal government, was very secretive about his job,of course I was too young to be curious about his job. All  I knew he went to work at 8 am and came back at 6 pm. 

The most interesting thing that happened in my closest family was my cousin married someone secretly, we did not find out until six months later. She didn’t let the secret out but the people who helped her gave all kinds of hints.

The truth came out, all the family members were upset for sometime. Eventually it all worked out, the good thing was my aunt and uncle didn’t have to spend any money for the wedding!
