Nemur resented Charlie's actions (going over his head) and was resentful. None-the-less, Nemur was cordial, even if not warm and welcoming.
He had been informed of the Foundation's decision, and my reception was a cold and formal one. He held out his hand, but there was no smile on his face. "Charlie," be said, "we're all glad you're back and going to work with us. Jayson called and told me the Foundation was putting you to work on the project.
