So, I absolutely adored What I Saw And How I Lied and was heartbroken at the ending. It was such a great book though, and so here's my little fic about Evie after the novel. Hope ya'll enjoy! :)

EDIT: Revised because, uh, well...I changed the plot so everything would fit. Yeah, my muse is screwed up like that.

NOTHING belongs to me. =P


Chapter 1

...

The moon sent a glow across the field that made me feel like the fairy queen in the Shakespeare play we performed at school once. But I was no fairy, and this was no play. If it was, everyone in it was a real good actor. They played their parts precisely, their lines were never wrong, and they sure were determined to make this one a tragedy.

That's when I saw him walking toward me, just as he always had. What a slow, sauntering walk he had. Like a panther coming up on his prey. But after all that had happened to me, I had fangs of my own. I wouldn't be taken in by his easy smile or glittering eyes. His soft touch would never weaken me again. It was time for him to pay for what he'd done. I had been lied to enough in my life.

He stood before me then, his eyes bright in the dim night. Why did he ever lie to me? Why couldn't he love me like he had promised? Or better yet, why couldn't he just leave me alone and never try to love me at all?

Maybe then this never would have happened. Maybe my heart wouldn't be breaking for a second time. Maybe I wouldn't have to be standing here now, wishing I could just run away and forget it all.

Maybe.

It didn't turn out that way though, and I was standing before him with tears in my eyes. Trying to accept why things went so wrong forced me to see the whole truth of it. I wasn't the same girl after all that had happened in Palm Beach. Coming home, I believed I was stronger and smarter. Over a whole year I had fooled myself into thinking I was different.

But I wasn't.

I was just a girl after all, a girl who thought she had grown up.
