Truth is not in the eye of the beholder. Is it?

Two schoolgirls share lunch and misgivings at how to apply truth when the facts are not convenient.

Flash Fiction Short Story

“Why did you say you were my best friend?” one little girl, Shelley, asked the other, Langley.

The two girls were settled in at a lunch table, sharing knishes and snacks. Shelley had a handful of expensive figs from offworld. Langley’s mother had baked flatbreads.

Langley popped another piece of fruit in her mouth. “That bully had no right to your figs.”

“G–d never lies,” Shelley answered solemnly.

“You know why?” Langley leaned back and stretched, then plunked both elbows on the table and grinned. “If He says it, He makes it true. You are now my best friend.”
