Drabble Challenge #3

Prompt: secrets

Ringing phone. Collect from Florida – again. “I’m coming home. I’m tired of stripping. Plus, I miss you.”

“Yeah, what were you thinking? We’re not over just because my daddy made you leave.”

“Friday night, Baby. You’ll be in my arms!”


“Are you going to sleep? You’ve barely even kissed me. Haven’t you missed me? Don’t you want to make love? What’s wrong?”

“Sorry, Deneen. I thought I could do this – but I can’t.”

“I don’t understand!”

“Don’t you know? Your dad raped me. Now, whenever I look at you, he is all that I see!”

Heart-stopping silence.
