"她感覺自己的藉口快被拆穿，於是講了更多的謊話圓謊" …"she felt like her excuses will be exposed soon so that she lied again to cover her fault"這裡是否表達正確？或是圓謊該怎麼翻會比較好？

A lie need ten lies to patch up, and ten lies need one hundred lies to patch up. It will get harder and harder to patch up.

圓謊 = cover (up) a lieWhen you lie to cover a truth, you will need to lie more to cover the previous lie. You will not stop lying, and you will live a pathetic life. Therefore, never lie in the first place.
