She had no choice but to decathect and called the board together to announce their dissolution with immediate effect.
The quickening shock in the room was tangible, and they looked at her as if some alien force had taken over her senses.
It explained why she had been so possessive lately with the accounts and none could duck blame as she objurgated them all for their greed to enhance their lifestyles at her expense. Times were hard and the business was going down the toilet with no possibility of a U turn, she said.
