Drabble Challenge #3 [Alternate]

Prompt: secrets

“Where are you going?” Charlie said as he caught Matt leaving the office early.

Matt’s hand reluctantly unclasped the doorknob and he grinned sheepishly at his friend and business partner.

“I was asked not to tell,” Matt said.

“By who?” Charlie asked indignantly.

Matt shrugged his shoulders and said, “Shane.”

“Shane?” Charlie said stunned, “Shane the ghost? Shane who you despise?”

“Yeah,” Matt replied, “he asked me to chaperone his date with Elisabeth.”

“You?” Charlie demanded, “Why not me? I’ve been married more times than you and engaged more times than that!”

“Yeah,” Matt replied. “That’s why he asked me.”
