More often than not, the truth will get you into trouble, especially if you’re in my line of work. It’s all about the secrets, the lies...the fabric you have to weave around yourself to hide what’s really going on and protect those you care about.

Lifting that curtain can only ever bring pain...and death.

At least, more often than not, anyway.

There’s only been one time in my life when shooting straight *didn’t* get me into trouble...where it actually improved a situation, and that’s pretty much anything and everything involving my relationship with Rachel...from the day we met to the night I told her I was a freakin’ WITSEC refugee.

The lies got me in deep...but every truth I told, every secret I exposed...something about it always drew us closer. She was at my back no matter which way I turned, and I found that sharing even hidden *was* freeing. Liberating. I mean, after everything I’ve been through in my life, it was a first for me to have that unconditional trust. Someone who forgave the lies, because she understood them...who could see past the deception, because it served a higher purpose.

She let me have my secrets, even my biggest one...and in the end? It was for that reason that I couldn’t keep any from her. I didn’t *want* to keep any from her.

Guess it’s that taste of freedom...once you’ve had it? You never want to let it go.
