Lies are like pearls. Some people think that pearls are tears wept by the gods or drops of moonlight fallen into the ocean. But we studied pearls last year. When a piece of sand gets into a shell, the shell secretes something ~ something beautiful and incandescent ~ and whatever that stuff is, it keeps covering the sand ~ over and over ~ until a pearl is formed. Something beautiful is formed and no one remembers, no one even knows that it started with a speck of sand. That’s just how a lie forms. A terrible secret gets covered in pretty words and no one knows. No one remembers the tiny truth that’s stuck inside.
