Got A Hold On Me
by Miles H. Rost
Harley Parkinson looked at his inheritance, an old structure of a building he once lived in.
“Harley! Came to look at the place?”
He saw her. His old friend, and caretaker of the residence, Carissa Blanks.
“You’ve taken care of the place.”
“Since you left a decade ago.”
“Well, you’ve always been a good friend of the family.”
“Though, I’ve always thought it would be better to be part of the family.”
Harley chuckled, as he looked up.
“Remember what we did in the attic?”
“Yep. Have proof of it.”
A 10 year old girl peeked from behind her mom.
I enjoyed this. Interested to see what comes next.
Man, there’s always a catch!
Guess who’ll be paying ten years of back child support?
It seems good old Harley inherited more than what he bargained for.
That is not a surprise one wants to come home to. Kind of unfair to him, if she never tried to tell him before…
Sounds like he inherited more than he thought.
That’s a very big surprise to return to.
All that backroom work has clearly paid off.
Sounds like a new start.
That is some proof. There are so many things left unsaid and unfinished in this story. I like that.

I like how she says, “Though, I’ve always thought it would be better to be part of the family.”
Love the surprise ending!
I hope they live happily ever after.
That’s a good twist at the end. Seems like she was more than just an old friend. 🙂 I liked this a lot.
Nice surprise for Harley, or not as the case may be. Either way it looks like he’s sharing his inheritance
