If I was your friend, I'd stop asking you anything.

Seriously, once you've established that the answer you're going to give is misleading, why do you insist on giving it? Tag questions are always reversed polarity; "You're going to the game, are you?" is actually a statement that "You may think so, but, no, no, you're not."

You should answer with "Yes" if your statement is positive, "No" if it's not, and consider pragmatics rather than logic.

"Had fallen". Always 'step back' one from the tense/aspect used in the direct speech when reporting indirect speech.
