Challenge: Loyalty 
Word count: 100

           “We’re doing the right thing, aren’t we?” Connor asked eventually.

            “Of course.”

Philip smiled, but Connor finally realised that it wasn’t real. Nothing more than a PR smile.

            Then why can’t we tell the others? He didn’t dare voice the question that yet again demanded attention. He didn’t want to examine the possibility that there was something very wrong here.

Besides, who would even listen to him now? He could imagine Abby’s ‘I told you so’ expression. Lester’s anger. Becker’s disappointment.

            Need to talk

            The text took seconds to type. Connor’s thumb hovered over the ‘send’ button for far longer.
