Light, camera, action. The presenters began reading the prime time news from the teleprompters. The Truth Fairy fidgeted from behind the scenes. Her ears burned with fragmented truths. 

Bull dust!

The footage twisted into something new. Creative facts to divide and distrust. Who drove the wedge?

Eris materialised, a smirk glued to her face.

“You!”

“What? I’m just being creative. I can’t help it if they are inspired by me.”

The Truth Fairy smiled. Two can play this game. She twitched her nose, casting her own spell on the crew. The uncensored truth flew out of their mouths. The pair gasped.

“You want the truth, you got it.”

Eris clicked her fingers.

“Breaking news; Kim Kardashian files for divorce -”

The Truth Fairy clenched her fists, “That’s not news.”

“Exactly.”
