The Promised Neverland for Newbies, Episode 6 — Beneath the Tangles
Lie as if you believe the lie—that's how you sell it. I know this from experience, having spent too many years stringing together fabrications that I told friends, family, and acquaintances so that I could get ahead and put myself at an advantage. Ray knows this strategy, too—there's no hesitancy at all when he lies to Gilda, Don, and Emma, and there's none when he meets with Mama. That's part of what makes him so convincing.
