I am never honest.
So I try to surround myself with honest people. Their openness, their sincerity, their stark goodness are all a refreshing change from everything I know and am.
And it's easy to hurt them and cut ties when I have to move on. They never want me back and it's better when I go, so I don't destroy them.
I am a liar, a cheat, and a thief. I am the powerless son of a dark wizard who loathes me. But I know his secrets and I made him need me.
Characters talking in my head! Always exciting. :)
