Doctor Bae finished his presentation and then stood with his hands folded behind his back. Miss Ryu hurriedly took the tablet and the projector, bowed low to the Supreme Leader and scurried out of the room. When the door shut the Supreme Leader let out a sigh that Bae did not interpret as positive.
“Your Most Honorable–” Bae started.
The Supreme Leader waved dismissively. “You said seven months. Then what? What will happen?”
Bae, Minister of Special Sciences, had no answer.
The Supreme Leader sneered. “I thought so.” He waved again, this time a command.
Bae bowed stiffly and left.
