Chloe: Pete, hey. It's so good to see you.
Don't be too impressed.
I just went from being a big fish
in a small pond to a minnow in the Atlantic
. Her employer told her she's
free to leave her job if she wants. So does she mean the situation got bad for her?

Pete: Well, I, for one, (at least he?)
have read all your stories.
1. She may not be as important as she thought she was.
2. Right: at least I have read all your stories, even if nobody else has.
Thanks, Philip!
