My friends knew about Jade, were avid for the next ‘chapter’. They often visited to to see her as if she were an exhibit in a zoo.
She’d speak to them and they’d ‘pull her tongue’ so she’d lie and boast and they’d crack up.
I never opened conversation with Jade, never said anything unless she spoke first. Yes, if I saw her on my way out it was a chipped ‘morning’ and on my way back ‘evening.’
She was the one who initiated conversations.
Often she would give me a ‘silent treatment’ . I was aware of it because she’d replace it with a babble. All of a sudden she’d have verbal vomit and I’d try to get away as quickly as I could.
As my friends could testify, once she started her lying she just couldn’t stop, and every remark got it bigger and bigger. And if someone agreed with a point she made, she’d change it.
