The Sister


Peter felt like a dick but he wanted his sister gone. He hated keeping secrets but his family wouldn’t understand about his relationship with his partner. Peter grew up in a conservative small town. Rich was not happy sleeping on a friend’s couch. Peter tried to convince his sister to stay in a hotel but she said she wanted to spend time with her brother. She turned with a slight frown, “So mom said you had a boyfriend living with you. Where are you hiding him and when can I meet him? I promised to tell them all about him.”

Love it!! Peter under estimated his family and their love for him. I enjoyed the roller coaster emotions here, first with Peters sadness and then to the happy surprise from sis. I'd so love to read about Rich meeting the sister.

I do hope all is okay with the family and Rich is welcomed. It sounds like Peter is very fond of him

I totally agree with S.J., the range of emotions and the cute twist at the end all add up to a great FF post. Peter, probably should have known he couldn't hide his secret from his family. I like a story with a happy ending at this one ended just right. Well done Cyril, well done indeed.
