10. Soft spoken secrets

“ Hey did you hear about…?,  and did you know that she …….,” he continued. 
“ I don’t believe it,” she whispered. 
“It’s all true,”  he spoke quietly. 
“She told me that it was true but she made me swear to keep her secret. That was her first mistake,” he sniggered. 
“How was she to know that I’m sworn to extract the truth and will tell as many lies as I have to so I can find those soft spoken secrets and put my political spin on them. I am the consummate politician after all.” 

“Fake news can only carry me so far” he sneered.
