Prompt for November 15, 2015

Complete the short story/flash fiction, that has the following first paragraph:

The surface of the desk had been worn smooth by countless arms sweeping across the surface. The warm oak reflected the light of the setting sun and gave Rachel’s face an almost healthy glow in sharp contrast to her normal, pale visage. When her father died last month he had bequeathed everything to the local pet shelter. Everything except for this desk that he specifically gave to Rachel. Her brothers, incensed at being slighted, had filed a lawsuit contesting the will, but it was, to use a cliche, ironclad. Rachel knew her father and his proclivity towards secrets, so what was the secret hidden in this desk that she needed to decipher?
