Is it ever okay to lie?

Telling the truth can be difficult when we know it might hurt someone's felling. Sometimes telling a small lie might seem like the easiest thing to do. A lie is a common thing that people usually say without awareness. At that time, lying is not good, sometimes bad. For an example, when your mother ask you whether you go to school or not? You nearly immediately answer that you have just returned home from school although the fact is that you have been absent from class. That are bad words because you just want to protect yourself. Besides, in some circumstances, people had better hide the truth. Sometimes, the truth is not needed to say or not to be allowed to show. The reasons are that you want to make someone happy or just a kidding in a talk. The most important thing is that you must be aware what you say, that might hurt someone's felling or not. Anyway, in my opinion, it is ever okay to lie that is still lie and can damage a trusting relationship.

A Suburban Hospital

It was a rainy and windy night in a suburban hospital. A doctor was tired from being on duty all day long. He walked slowly into a dark obsolete elevator. In that elevator there was an old woman with white hair and shriveled face. He asked her about her heath, and how long she had been there. The old woman said it was too long to remember how many years she had been there. The elevator slowly went down and opened when it stopped at the fifth floor. The fifth floor was the place where the dead are stored. Surprisingly, there was a little girl who wanted to get inside. He was shocked and chilled to the bone to see her. So he pushed the close button quickly to prevent the little girl from getting in side. After that, the elevator kept going. The old lady asked why he prevented the little girl form getting inside. The doctor replied the little girl had a number on her neck that the doctors always print on the dead. She nodded and took off her jacket slowly... She had another number on her neck.
