Spies must tell lies

'For years I'd been trying to piece together some form of family, and now I had a second chance. I wouldn't let it slip through my fingers.'

Charlotte Goode is fifteen.She speaks eighteen languages and knows how to fight. But she wants to know what really happened the night when her parents fought, and only one of them came out alive.

Spies must tell lies, but she is determined to find the truth.


4. Lies

Spies must tell lies.

Whether you like it or not, you do it. Why? You have to. You have to lie to your enemies to save a life. You have to lie to your loved ones for reasons you can't explain, and feel the bitterness of your deceit course through your veins.

Some trying to make it more of a euphemism - 'cover stories', they call it. A feeble attempt at trying to make it seem as if lying is okay, because it is a role, a story.

As kids, we told lies. Small, insignificant lies. Little did I know lies can stay with you long after they leave your lips.


I have already been over-dramatic, but I wasn't exaggerating here. However cheesy it sounds, lies can ruin you. You forget who you really are. But a part of me has always known that I wouldn't truly be myself again after my father's death. Which involved Mr Solomon. 


In a story, this would be the cliffhanger. In a film, this would be the moment where the audience gasps. But there's not much else to say. I know Joe Solomon was there the night my father was murdered, but I know no more. Finding Zach was my ultimate aim, but now I must find Solomon too. I don't know what happened that night, but I know who can help.
