    Two people brought together by untrue circumstances under a lie. And the one decieved offered the other words of support and encouragement by way of metaphors. The others or other one. Used the words and time as a way to profit. The one who encouraged in slang was left to suffer with nothing and no one. The one that was encouraged fell in love and was forced to leave the one he fell for during this time and under a lie. And during this time both of their fathers had died.
