Written in the 10th month, on the 24th day of the month, in the year of the Chief Dragon Slayer, 2012, to new Slayers undergoing rigorous training: Greetings!
Well now, I have escaped Cringe Liver’s clutches. And I shall reveal Bilgewater’s greatest lie momentarily, but first I must prepare you for it. Guard yourself, Dragon Slayer! I tremble at the thought of even introducing you to the greatest lie ever told, because I fear it might entice you. Why? Well, because Bilgewater is a master of deception. If people knew that Bilgewater’s lies were actually lies, would they be duped by them? No, of course not. The only reason that people believe the dragon’s lies is because they don’t know they’re lies!
Here’s what Bilgewater does: It takes truth and causes it to look false. At the same time, it takes what’s false, and makes it look true. OUTRAGEOUS!
This trick of Bilgewater’s is why I fear even mentioning its worst deception. What if, while I’m explaining the greatest lie imaginable, Bilgewater attacks you, convincing you that the lie is true? Oh, Dragon Slayer, may it never be!! I’m so afraid, I’ll . . . I’ll . . . um . . . I’ll wait until next week to reveal the lie. Phew!
