One of us is a liar.

On the first night, we laughed and danced under the stars.

On the second night we went skinny dipping in the warm, summer sea.

On the third night the wine loosened our tongues, the lies spilling and the masks starting to slip.

And on the final night it all ignited as we celebrated at the beach party – for someone, the holiday in Greece would be their last…
