Caught in the Moment – Eby’s Embarrassment #atoz2020

It should have been obvious to him. What an idiot he had been thinking of doing something like this and expecting to not be caught.

It had not been his idea entirely. His friends from school had literally handed over the CD to him and asked him to take it home for the weekend and Eby had not said no to them.

He was watching the video intensely when he felt a tap on his shoulder.

He could not decide if he was startled by the presence of his father or if it was relief when he figured that it was not his mother.

He would not be able to look into his mother’s eyes if she ever caught him watching porn.

Eby’s father asked him to come down to the hall as there was some important matter to be discussed.

He was embarrassed and scared at the same time. Eby knew he was going to be admonished for his actions and that they would each give him a piece of their mind.

Writing to me is therapy, it frightens and comforts at the same time. Liberates like nothing else. A book in my own name is a dream, but a bigger dream would be to write something that haunts the reader even after the last page is turned and the book is shut. I enjoy reading and music, spending time with family whilst battling my social awkwardness.
