The Daily Post- Secret

Secret- Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt

To keep your own secrets is wisdom; but to expect others to keep them is folly. – William Scott Downey, Proverbs

In my friend circle a secret was a thing my friends will tell me because they say ‘ I know you won’t tell anyone.’

They were honoring me, in fact. It always baffled me that if they can’t hide it then how can they expect others to hide it. And the funniest thing was that the will themselves tell others.

Once my sis-in-law told me that I’m telling you a secret but don’t tell it to you husband. It was a touchy subject so i kept mum about it. When she went back my husband told me what she has shared with him. He never hides anything from me. Now I was in a very embarrassing position. I told him that i hid it from him.

I firmly believe that

How can we expect another to keep our secret if we cannot keep it ourselves. – François de La Rochefoucauld, Maxims

 

Writing 101, Day 3- Secret

SECRET

Our was a small locality. We were all friends.

One day ‘A’ came to me and said

‘Listen ‘Cee’; please don’t tell anyone, it’s a top-secret. I’m telling you only.’

I said, ‘When you can’t keep it a secret then why expect it from me.’

‘I have faith in you that you will keep it a secret’, she said.

‘Please don’t tell me, if it’s that important’, I told her.

She got angry with me and went to another friend ‘Bee ‘and told her that ‘Cee’ can’t keep a secret so never tell her anything and don’t tell her that I have told you this.’

Now ‘Bee’ came to me and told me what ‘A’ was saying.

I asked ‘did she tell you to tell me.’ She said’ no but don’t tell her what I told you.’

‘Then when you can’t keep it a secret then why are you telling it to me?’

‘I’m doing you a favour because ‘A’ will tell everyone  that you can’t keep a secret so not to tell you anything, then no one will share a secret with you.’

I said ‘I don’t mind anyone not telling me a secret. Everyone should keep their secret with them.’ Now ‘Bee’ also became angry with me and went to tell it to other friends.

That’s how I was branded as a girl who can’t keep a secret.

 

Daily Prompt- Locked and Sealed

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.
