I had no clue. The signs were right in front of me and I saw them, but my brain didn’t do that 1+1=2 trick it’s supposed to do. I cannot believe how blind I was, but everything has fallen into place now.
The tongue is a talented liar, but the eyes…no, not even a bit. Eyes cannot deceive. They are like an open door to the mind, and therefore terrifyingly accurate when it comes to revealing secrets. I should know, as I had a (best) friend incapable of controlling the size of her pupils whenever I caught her eyes (yikes, what a secret). The eyes have a talent much bigger than the tongue’s: the eyes speak when the tongue is restricted, and they do so silently.
