The Night She Lied
This was never meant to happen. I’m a nurse, I would never hurt anyone. But the police are smashing through the front door. I’m covered in blood. My fingerprints are on the knife. They’re going to arrest me, because this looks like murder…
All this started because I was trying to protect my mother. When she was arrested last year for a horrendous crime that she swore blind she didn’t commit, she begged me to help her stay out of prison. She asked me to find the person who was telling these vicious lies about her, and make them stop.
But my world fell apart when she told me his name. Because I knew him. I’d trusted him. I’d even let him into my home – and my heart. I didn’t realise that all the time he was with me, he was gathering evidence.
I pleaded with him to end this nightmare. But slowly, I started to realise it might be my own mother who was the liar. Now, I’ve been forced to make an impossible choice, and I don’t know who to believe.
Tonight was my last chance to finally get to the truth. But I never meant it to go this far. I would never deliberately hurt someone I love. I’m the innocent victim here, just caught in the middle. I’m not guilty of murder.
You believe me – don’t you?
