More lies

“Nice to meet you too,” Evan managed a somewhat warmer smile this time, “I uh, I was attacked last night.” He gave a hesitant laugh, attempting to assure Finn that he was not asking for sympathy.


“Attacked, really?” Finn raised his eyebrows.

“It doesn’t sound half as painful as your run-in with that electric fence, though. Finn is an unusual name…” Evan’s words trailed of as he noticed his accent had become more prominent, especially with all of the ‘S’ sounds.

The End
