The Secret

by Lorraine Marie Barrett
Originally published by on 22/04/2018

Her best friend called to warn her. It had finally happened. The day she had dreaded for years. The day her colleagues and friends would find out her secret.

Only her best friend and family knew. She had sworn them to secrecy. Not even her handsome twenty-nine year old boyfriend knew, nor her co-workers at the fashion magazine. They wouldn't understand.

There was nothing she could do as she made her way home to face the music. She took a deep breath as she opened the door.

“Surprise!' everyone shouted.

She stood looking at that awful banner: 'Happy 40th Birthday'.
