If I’m being entirely honest, it was all my fault. The shattered glass, the fractured understanding. I let him believe I meant to save him, then let him fall. I meant no harm.

This post was written in response to the Trifecta Writing Challenge  weekend prompt:

This week’s Trifextra challenge is simple, but ambiguous. 

Three truths and a lie. 

33 to 333 words. 

I have to say: I spent all weekend thinking that the assignment was “three lies and a truth,” and that’s what I’d been working on in my head. When I put pen to paper (figuratively speaking), I realized my mistake, and had to come up with something new. That’ll teach me to read more carefully…

    Sit down long enough and you may just create a short story or entire novel out of this. The idea of harmless betrayal (in the eyes of the narrator) makes for a very compelling point of view. Congratulations!

    Thanks for linking up with Trifextra this weekend. I am laughing about your misunderstanding of the prompt. Nice work thinking on your feet and getting 3 truths and a lie in. I like the shattered glass and fractured understanding. Your writing is always top notch. Hope to see you back again soon.
