He told one lie and got away with it. Having developed a taste for it, he lies all the time now.Vocabulary 一度 ichido - once ついたうそ tsuita uso - a lie that was told ばれなかった barenakatta - didn't get caught ので node - therefore; that being the case; because of 彼 kare - he うそ uso - lie ?ばかり ~bakari - only; always (lying) ついている tsuiteiru - telling (lies)-----About "barenakatta"ばれる bareru is a good and useful word that can be confusing. Here (and most often) it means "to leak a secret" or "to be exposed."So "barenakatta" is "bareru" (to be exposed) + "nakatta" (the simple past negative) = wasn't exposedI looked it up online and there seems to be no agreement on its origins and I also don't think there is a kanji for it.
