Trifecta


This week’s Trifextra challenge is simple, but ambiguous. Three truths and a lie. 

Three truths and a lie. I've told them all. But it's only in retrospect I know which was the lie, and that, sadly, I was deceiving myself as much as him.

I'll always love you … I'll always feel the way I do tonight … No one will ever be to me what you are … Your secrets are safe with me.


THIS JUST IN: The good people at Trifecta ranked this entry third. I'm surprised and very happy.

  2. From the four the lie will be depressing if from two, devistating if from the other two.

  3. I'm thinking the secrets are safe, but it is rather intriguing that perhaps they weren't ...

  7. I am a horrible guesser, but the prose is beautiful. I'll guess at always feeling like you do tonight. That always seems to change.

Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
