Character: Neal Caffrey
Notes: Drabble-a-Day 2011 Day 98. Prompt from whitecollar100. Challenge #40-Judge. Unbeta'd. Comments and concrit welcome.
Summary: Neal takes the oath.
“Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you God?”
Neal looked out at the courtroom. There was Agent Burke, key witness for the prosecution, and yet Neal couldn’t bring himself to hate him. That emotion he reserved for the Insurance investigator; he could practically feel her hostility.
He took a second to flash a grin toward the sketch artist. Hopefully, she’d create a flattering likeness.
“Mr. Caffrey,” the judge prompted.
Neal put on his most serious face to show respect.
“I certainly do.”
And proceeded to lie through his teeth.
