Mr. Dong led us on, and all along the way, whenever an employee saw me, no matter what they were doing at the moment, they would drop everything in their hands to stand up to give me a bow, like they were trained soldiers saluting an overseeing superior.
“Greeting, Director Xia!”
“Good morning, Director Xia!”
It was the only thing that I hear as I walked through the company, guided by Mr. Dong who walked ahead before me.
With the look on every employee’s eyes as they looked at me, it was as if I was their mother, the kind that milked them with sweet sweet milk from my own breasts.
I never thought that the way to the conference hall was that long before. It was as if I had been walking forever.
