Word Count: 400
Prompt: 'lies' from scoopchick
Everyone tells lies, hell growing up it was one of the first things Mary Campbell learned to do. It was just how her family worked. They lied to people so they could help them. They lied because if people knew what was really out there it would destroy any semblance of normal the world had.
And not a day had gone by where Mary ever felt guilty about it. When she was younger she hadn’t know lying was considered doing something wrong. When she was a teenager she rationalized it by saying they were white lies.
They didn’t hurt anyone, if anything they allowed her to do good. Never once had Mary Campbell felt bad about the lies she told…until the day she met John Winchester. He came into her life at a time when things were difficult and she had lost people she had cared about.
He came at a time when she was questioning a lifestyle that had been chosen for her, a time when she was looking for a way out. The day she met John Winchester was the day she realized she wanted more than what this life could provide her.
So the closer they got the more she lied to keep him in the dark about her family and the dark side of her world. When he proposed it was the happiest day of her life until that yellow eyed demon killed her family. Since that day Mary had been running from a life she wanted to forget.
A life that brought pain, death, anger, and regret with it. And now as she stood in the kitchen washing dishes, the day she’d been dreading for years fast approaching, Mary wondered if all the lies were worth it. If the fabrications she made up for John’s sake were more harmful then the truth.
She’d made a deal with the devil and eventually, sooner rather than later it was going to catch up with her and bite her in the ass. Because somehow even white lies find their way out of the dark, exposing secrets to the light of day that never should have been.
She glanced down as the soapy water ran off the dish in her hand. Mary shook her head and sighed. She was worried about nothing…her life was finally normal. She wasn’t really hiding anything from him…after all they were just white lies.
