GENRE: Contemporary, Fiction

8,100 words; Short Story; Complete

On the occasion of his mom and dad’s fiftieth wedding anniversary, a father reveals a horrible secret to his son.  Possibly, if revealed, it is enough to tear the family asunder.  The son listens to his father’s confession, a nightmare if it were only a dream, but a horror this World War Two veteran has carried through his life and for some confounding reason is driven to reveal all to his son.  Ultimately, the son accepts the burden of sharing his father’s sin.  Together, they will protect the family they have created and although the foundation is flawed, their house will stand.  Years later, after the deaths of both the father and mother, the son commits a lesser sin of his own and applies the lessons of his father to save the family again.
