1. "Well let me just say the girl was a pathological liar. She was sick, pure and simple. She made up everything. And while she was making up her stories, she would come to believe them. And then she would change things around her to fit her story. She had such a quick mind, she could always keep a step ahead of you and take care of things that would ordinarily strike you as odd, so it would never cross your mind she was lying. First of all, no one would ever suspect that such a pretty girl would lie about the most ordinary things. I certainly didn’t. She told me tons of lies for six months before I had the slightest inkling anything was wrong. She lied about everything, and I never suspected. I know it sounds crazy…
        “When I say everything, I mean everything… When people tell a lie about something they have to make up a bunch of lies to go with the first one. ‘Mythomania’ is the word for it. When the usual mythomaniac tells lies, they’re usually the innocent kind, and most people don’t notice. But not with that girl. To protect herself, she’d tell hurtful lies without batting an eyelid. She’s use everything she could get her hands on. And she would lie either more or less depending on who she was talking to. To her mother or close friends who would know straight away, she hardly ever lied, or if she had to tell one, she’d be really, really careful to tell lies that wouldn’t come out. Or if they did come out, she’d find an excuse or apologise in that clingy voice of hers with tears pouring out of her beautiful eyes. No one could stay mad at her then.
         “I still don’t know why she chose me. Was I another victim to her, or a source of salvation? I just don’t know. Of course, it hardly matters now. Now that everything is over. Now that I am like this.”
