Another way of hearing

March 4, 2017

I meant what I said, she told him. I just meant it in a different way.

This baffled him. She had just clearly said she’d talked to the Russian minister. How else should he interpret that?

You just hear things differently than I say them, she said. I have one way of saying the truth, and you have another way of hearing it.

He left her office as confused as he’d ever been, his stomach twisted in anticipation of what could happen next.
