Lots of people have been party to a secret at some point, either one they’ve been told or one they have tried to keep and this is today’s focus.
The Secret. Your character has one, or knows about one. Will it be kept, or disclosed?
No not this time. Today it’s completely your call.
Go ahead, have fun and write…

Slightly spoilery and very scandalous: https://storiesin5minutes.wordpress.com/2015/09/26/a-secret-pearl-storyaday/
Slooowly catching up.
My story ended up focusing on earning a secret rather than what happens once it’s out.
I’m not sure if today’s story really adheres to the prompt’s desire for a character to have a secret, but it comes close in one way or another. You can read my story here: https://storiesbystolle.wordpress.com/2015/09/26/day-26-from-languid-to-leitmotif-to-lignin. The password is 26.
Love it! ? Dogs can be more useful to us than they’ll ever know. Thanks Angie, great short story.
Here is my short story to go with the prompt that was given: https://angietrafford.wordpress.com/2015/09/26/story-a-day-secret/
Very good, I loved how you never mentioned Sam was her dog. Brilliant.
This is an older piece but fits the prompt. It’s also one of my favorites since it hits close to home.
I enjoyed your story Kristi, is that more of an American thing? I’m sure here (England) there is no issue in Costa, Starbucks, etc in ordering a tea. Maybe because we are a nation of tea drinkers!
Yes, most Americans are obsessed with coffee. In every coffee shop there are a ridiculous amount of choices for types of coffee but if I’m lucky I can choose between 3-6 flavors of tea, if they have any at all.
As a tea drinker myself, that made me smile.
Hope you feel better soon.
