George Mills

I wanted to tell George Mills the truth
How we set off the fire extinguishers in the changing rooms
And pushed over a few lockers
After a particularly embittered game of cricket which had involved a lot of time wasting from the home team

But I didn’t

He stopped me on the stairs after assembly and asked me
In his dramatic old school PG Wodehouse voice

Did anything go on after the match on Saturday?
I want the whole truth and nothing but
I know I can trust you to be honest with me

No sir
I said

Nothing happened

Very well said George
I believe you

It was the hardest lie I ever told
