How long had it been since he last proactively pushed his ideas on another person?
For many years now, he had never needed to take the initiative to carry a discussion. His guests would respectfully speak non-stop in his presence, and all he needed to do was to indicate with either a nod or a shake of his head. He had never thought a day would come where he would have to coax another party like a desperate salesman once more.
