(Author’s note: Hoping to have some longer stories up soon. Just need to get through the testing week next week, then there’s 4 months of nothing but classes. (Thankfully). Here’s today’s fictioneers, with a second peek from Marie Osmond!)
Read My Lips
by Miles H. Rost
The knock at the door was persistent. She leaned out the door of her shower and called out that she was coming.
Wrapped in a simple periwinkle towel, she walked to the door and cracked it open.
“Paul?! It’s 11:30! What are you doing here?”
“I needed to see you. Something bad just happened.”
Helena let him in and he immediately bolted to the couch.
“Alright, what happened?”
“I lost your ring.”
“The ring I was going to give you tomorrow night, to ask you to marry me.”
Helena blinked. Twice. Then pounced.
“Read my lips.”
She mouthed “yes”.
