I’ve told a lot of lies in my life. Mostly lies of omission.

My best friends, Rebecca, Gemma, and Katya think I come from a rich family like they do.
I don’t.

We have a fancy lunch once a month at an expensive restaurant. I cut back on food the rest of the time to pay for it.

My car sits in the garage unless I’m spending time with my friends. It’s cheaper to catch the bus.

But now I have a big secret. The biggest of them all.
I’m in love with Rebecca’s father.
And I think he loves me back.

Stand alone story.
