Unexpected Guests



Daily Prompt: You walk into your home to find a couple you don’t know sitting in your living room, eating a slice of cake. Tell us what happens next.

Sitting at the red light I relish the thought of the glass of wine and TV shows piled in my DVR that I plan on diving into when I get home. It was a long day; the meeting didn’t go as well as I had hoped and the rest of the day had been spoiled because of it. The light turns green and I make the left onto my street, as I get closer to my driveway I notice an unfamiliar car parked on the curb. I turn the engine off and walk towards the front door, trying to peak into the kitchen window to see who this strange car as carried to my house to interrupt my post work glass of wine. My sisters head pops into view above the sink and she gestures for me to hurry into the house. When I come in through the front door she grabs my bag and tears my coat from me while giving me an impatient look. “Who are those people?” I ask. She gives me a long look before gently responding with “our parents, the real ones, the biological ones.”
