Dark Secrets

Reyes doesn't start relationships. She doens't trust males and doesn't trust anyone with her secret.
So when Marían (male name) starts to fall for her, Reyes is not only troubled, but feeling herself falling too. But nobody is allowed to find out about her secret.

The story is revolving around Reyes' and Marían's thoughts and doings and how Reyes is resisting with all her might, while Marían is trying to push himself forward.

This story is intense, made up like a poem but still not a poem - I hope you like it - and if it's possible, to comment


8. A phone call




"Hello. Umm... Can I talk with Reyes?"

"¿Quién es este? Who this is?"

"Someone from school."

The woman talked in rapid Spanish, then she was on the phone again.

"Reyes is not home."

"It's urgent, Mrs. - " but he shouldn't have bothered. The receiver shifted hands.

"What do you want?"

"I can't stay like this, Reyes."

"I am afraid you'll have to."

"I can't! You are everywhere I look."

"That's not my problem."

"Can't you at least tell me why."

"We have talked about this, Marían."


"I am hanging up."

"Reyes!" but he was shouting into an empty receiver.

On the other side Reyes closed her eyes and bit her lips. Why couldn't he just give up? Why couldn't he just let her be? Why couldn't he just let her wallow in her own misery?
