The office gossip
"It was only a little lie, it wouldn't hurt anybody, would it?"
I looked in her eyes and could see she was panicking at what she had done.
"But the world prefers to believe a lie rather than hear the truth" I responded, "but in this case the truth only hurt you as you bad mouthed the man she was about to marry."
She glared at me, indignant that she had been caught out then burst into tears.
I continued, "The whole point about love is trust and I am sure that they talked about their past long before you enhanced it."
Pouting she turned and walked off for none of her romances lasted more than a week or two after her suitors found out they couldn't believe a word she said; I doubt she will have a job next week.
