"Are all these stories you tell me, are they true ...?"
"Some are ... others not so ..."
"Why do you tell me what is not true?"
"I did not say that it is not true ... I said that it is not so true ... I love you ... I want to protect you from truths that hurt ... so I fix truths with kindness so that they will always be affection when they come to you."
(From the story "Entrelinhas" ... that I have not yet written ... because the character still quarrels with me, and still speaks what I ask him not to speak ...)
