“You’re saying that it was part of his rescue scheme?” Chloe asked. “Why? What would he say to Mirielle there, in front of Alex?”
“I don’t think he was saying anything to Mirielle,” Phillip said. “I think, and this is where I’m really not certain, he was threatening Alex.”
“You have no proof.”
“No, I don’t,” Phillip admitted, “and that’s why I’m worried. But think about it,” he said. “Alex goes totally ballistic after Daniel says… something to him. It’s not a long leap to think that he pissed Alex off.”
“And having that on tape would make the Foundation look even more guilty,” Chloe said. “No wonder he needed to keep us in the dark.”
“I don’t know,” Phillip said, “but I’m starting to have serious doubts about where Daniel’s loyalty lies.”
Chloe stopped to consider this for a moment. “A week ago, I would have thought you insane for making such a suggestion.”
“But today?”
“I don’t know, Phillip,” she sighed. “I’ve known Daniel for years. I can’t think that he would betray us. I can’t even guess who he’d betray us to.”
“He’s not betraying us, he’s just hurling us under the bus as a distraction for Mirielle and Rob,” Phillip said. “I want to help them, but I don’t want it to cost the Foundation.”
