Lyle was gone already when I arose. No one knew where he had gone. He had not left word with anyone.
I was not too concerned and thought for sure he would reappear before we set about our chores.
But instead of Lyle, Moglen burst in upon us. Accompanied by six of their guards.
He asked only for Flowers, demanding to talk to him. And he did not like my reply. He did not believe that “our” liaison would traipse off into the desert on a whim.
My protest to the contrary fell on deafened ears. And he changed his demand. He is taking me with him to answer to Stan face to face for Flowers’ disappearance.
Moglen is terrified.
