Lie to Me

Lie to Me

A Story by lrigD

It's easy to tell a lie.


“Lie to me,” she said. “Lie to me, make everything better.”

Lie to her?

She didn’t know what to do. Once upon a time, she wouldn’t have hesitated at all. It was easy to say that you’d always be there when they needed you; it was even relatively easy to make that come true once.

Keeping the promise, however, wasn’t easy at all.

She knew the pain of betrayal. She knew what her friend needed; or thought she needed.

She could lie. She knew she could. It wasn’t hard to tell a few well-placed lies, comfort her friend with untruths that would be revealed whether she wanted it to or not. Lying, she thought, was a skill like any other, and you needed talent to distinguish lies from truth; you needed talent to tell them, too.

It would be a betrayal to her principles, and she knew she’d find a way to assuage herself: it was not for her, she hadn’t done it with no reason, it was no big deal; but there was still the nagging thought.

It would be a betrayal.

But there she was. Black stripes and tear tracks on her face, her eyes desperate and yet with a tiny shimmer of hope.

Lie to me.

Make it better.

And she did.

Author's Note

There's no 'depressing' or 'sad' category, so for lack of something better I put it in 'Teen & Young Adult'.
Wrote this when I was searching for Lie to Me -the show- fanfiction, and the phrase "Lie to Me" just appealed to me!

why do we seem to think ..telling someone we are there for them without having some time limit on the assurance....TODAY I AM THERE FOR YOU....All we really have is today.. yesterday is gone today is fleeting anf who knows of tomorrow?
