However, when I arrived at my desk I didn't find Mr. Wong or even my boss shaking their fingers at my supposed failures. No, it wasn't this place where students were staring up at me as if they were looking for some way to break me. It was actually empty. I was the first there. Taking a seat in my chair all fears disappeared and I simply started my job. No big deal. I worked. That's what I came to do and the rest fell into place.
