Daily Prompt- Locked and Sealed– Can you keep a secret? Have you ever — intentionally or not — spilled the beans (when you should’ve stayed quiet)?
I hope it will not be called bragging if I say that I am very good at keeping secrets.
Still I can recall one incident where I was guilty of spilling the beans, unintentionally though.
When I was in school final, we were four very close friends since class eight, we shared everything between us.
One day my closest friend KK asked me whether I can keep a secret or not. I said yes and she told me that her parents have arranged her marriage and soon she is going to get engaged. She requested me to keep my mouth shut as she herself will tell other friends and give us a party. I was very happy and wanted to share it with all but she made me promise to keep quiet.
Next day when all were chatting in lunch break one of my friend complained that we did not have a party for a long time. Suddenly I said that KK is going to give us one nice party soon.
All friends forced her to tell her the reason for the party. Unwillingly she told them.
It was a slip of tongue, I apologies to her but she did not forgave me and stopped talking to me since then.
My friends also requested her to forgive me but she was adamant.
We resumed talking after sometime as we both were dying to talk to each other.
Since then I have never revealed a secret.
