Gorgon None could tell if what she said was what she meant, a princess of prevarication, disguised in innocence, masquerading as a friend to those she chose to mutilate. The game began as envy, to acquire attention from her schoolmates, but her caustic wit curdled fast, tattling tales about her peers inventing scandals betraying trusts. She kept a private score, measuring wins and losses, gloating when her victims hurt, furious when her sadistic efforts failed, a monster, whose mirror also lied. She won her game, left bereft of friends, avoided by her family, none returned her calls, her last rites were unattended, none came to view her leprous remains.
