Mister Omochi is very angry. You created the most appalling tension in the meeting this morning. How could our business partners have any feeling of trust in the presence of a white girl who understood their language? From now on you will no longer speak Japanese.»
I was dumbfounded.
«I beg your pardon?»
«You no longer know how to speak Japanese. Is this clear?»
«But – it was because of my knowledge of your language that I was hired by Yumitomo!»
«That doesn’t matter. I am ordering you not to understand Japanese anymore.»
«That’s impossible. No one could obey an order like that.»
«There is always a means to obeying. That’s what Western brains need to understand.»

ーAmélie Nothomb, «Fear and trembling»
