This is a continuation from my first story "A Hole in the World." It is highly recommended that it be read before reading this story, else some of the content may be confusing. Also, a reader pointed out to me that I forgot to acknowledge that I took inspiration from the television series "Alias" for Project Christmas which was used in the previous story and is mentioned during this one. I'd like to do that now, so there's no further confusion.
This story deals with a very touchy subject, one I wrestled with before coming to the decision to write it. Violence in our schools is a sad reality these days, and one that is not to be glorified or made light of. This story does contain such content and those who are unwilling, or unable, to handle such content are advised not to read the following story.
I want to express my heartfelt thanks to Miss Nomi and Miss Red Hardy, for their work as beta readers and for all their help and suggestions. Without them I couldn't have gotten through this. Next time, my dears, the subject matter will not be so heavy.
Because I have rewritten quite a bit of this story from how it was originally posted, and it's been a rather long time, I have decided to delete the existing version of Lie To Me and repost the new chapters. For those of you who have been waiting for me to complete this story, thank you for your patience and understanding. Also, to those who took the time to review and leave feedback on the previous version, I would like to express a deep thank you. Your comments helped me through some of the rough patches i went through during this rewrite.
All the chapters are completed, and it is my plan to post twice a week, on Monday & Friday. However, when I deliver my baby there may be a couple of days delay in updates while I'm in the hospital. So if there is suddenly a Monday or Friday without an update, that's probably the reason and I'll get caught up as soon as possible.
As always, feedback and constructive criticism is welcomed.
Disclaimer: I don't own the Hardy Boys. It's just a little bit of fun.
