“Sir, do you have a moment?” Daniel had waited behind after the daily briefing to speak to his boss.
“Yes, what do you want Daniel? I am busy.” came the terse response.
“I think we should talk in your office sir, what I have to say is not for a public space.”
“OK, lead on.”
The two walked down the corridor in silence, the boss’s office was a solid 4 minutes walk and it passed slowly. By the time he had been shown to a seat in the office, Daniel had a knot in his stomach the size of his fist and was battling dry mouth.
“What is it Daniel?”
“I know about the senior under secretary sir.”
“What do you know about him?” The head of MI6 said without looking up from the report he was reading.
“I know about him and you sir.”
“Him and I?” The chief looked up from his papers. “What about him and I?”
“That you are lovers sir.” Daniel said staring his superior dead in the eye. He reached in his pocket and pulled out a small plastic slide viewer, which he handed to the man opposite.
“I think this should prove it.”
