Story Starter #50: I came home to find a bouquet of flowers on my doorstep. I sniffed the flowers, enjoying the freshness of the petals and their vibrant colors. Then I noticed a white envelope attached to the base of the bouquet with Scotch tape. My name was written across the front  in a bold script. My heart beat in my chest. Did I have a secret admirer?

Eagerly I ripped open the envelope only to feel my heart drop to my toes. My chest tightened and I couldn’t breathe. It was as if someone tied an anchor around my ankles and tossed me into the ocean. The card was from my mother. But my mother had been dead for three years.

Perhaps this was some sick joke. My brother was always kind of an asshole. As I went to search the bouquet’s wrapping for anything to identify the florist, those once-beautiful flowers were now rotted, the petals wilting and brown.
