The prompt this week involved keeping secrets.
You or your character knows something that the family shouldn’t know. Write about how you successfully or unsuccessfully hide the information.
Keeping secrets comes in all shapes, sizes, and flavors, but hiding something from family, people who know you or the character well and share a history, that’s more complicated.
How do they hide the information? Are they successful in doing so? It is important that we know what the secret is or just that something must be hidden from the others? Consider familial events such as family dinner gathers, holidays, or reunions.
