Office of Leona Lee
Senior Account Director
40th Floor, Calthorpe Tower
Leona Lee, thirty-six years old and the acting account director on the Natural Grace Cosmetics account, sat frozen before the screen of her laptop. Her mouth was open and her hands were suspended above the square black tiles of the keyboard.
She had been locked in this position for almost thirty seconds, not even blinking, hardly even breathing, as motionless as a screenshot from a horror movie.
On her laptop, her email browser waited for her next command. The cursor blinked and the mouse pointed. The unread emails stood patiently in their ranks. What’s it going to be, they seemed to ask. Select email? Reply to email? Compose email? Delete email? We’re waiting for you.
But there was only one command that Leona Lee wanted, the one command that could undo the catastrophic mistake she had just made: the command to recall an email.
‘Shit,’ said Leona. ‘Shit, shit, shit!’
The trouble was, Leona didn’t know how to use the command. She wasn’t even sure it existed. The recall email command was like an urban myth. Maybe it existed; maybe it didn’t.
Leona brought her hands up to her face and held them there. ‘What have I done?’ she whispered. ‘What have I done?’
