Fumi: You may have everyone else fooled, but I know the real reason for the success of this project.

Issac: What?

Fumi: You. You’ve been working behind the scenes to bolster the people who weren’t up to the task. Without you, this project would have been sunk months ago.

Issac: That’s nonsense.

Fumi: No, it’s not. I know you don’t like the limelight, but you were the linchpin of this operation. Without you, we’d all have egg on our faces today.

Issac: You’re giving me way too much credit. I don’t want to hear another word about it.

Fumi: I’m not surprised at your reaction. Most unsung heroes like to keep a low profile.

Issac: What?! I’m nothing of the kind!

Fumi: Yes, you are. You’re far too modest. And soon, I won’t be the only one who thinks so!

Issac: What are you proposing to do?

Fumi: Don’t worry. I’m not planning a ticker-tape parade, but it’s time your contributions are recognized for what they are around here!
