Fandango is our host for the Tuesday Story Starter Challenge.
This week’s Story Starter teaser is:
Peeking through the window, her surprise turned to horror when…
He’d said he wasn’t feeling well so she finished work early to look after him.
Before letting herself in through the back door, a movement in the bedroom caught her eye. Peeking through the window, her surprise turned to horror when she realised what she was looking at.
Her clothes were strewn across the bed and he was completely naked as he handled them all. He was surprisingly gentle, admiring each one as he held it up against him in front of the mirror. Luckily, he didn’t see her.
She walked slowly back to the car, unlocked it and got inside.
She didn’t know what to do.
Should she go back to work and pretend she hadn’t seen?
Make a racket as she went inside to give him time to compose himself?
The fact was she couldn’t unsee what she’d seen, and knew she could not live a lie.
She loved him, and knew he loved her.
Making up her mind, she got out of the car.
He was her brother regardless, and she was all he had since their parents died.
