pinocchio

'are you alright?'
'you're very pale.'
i'm fine. 


fine. 



he knows it's a lie, i'm sure. but something in the way i said it - so flatly, without appeal - left him unable to challenge me, as if the lie is so nearly naked that to uncover it would be cruelty. 

(but he's the real pinocchio)
