Ok, Let's see this conversation.
Tom & Mary are working in a shop right now. It is 4 pm NOW. Normally the working hour will finish at 5 pm.
Tom: There is not too much work today. Can I leave at 4.35?
Mary: You can leave at 4.45 because if you leave before 4.45, the boss will ask you, "Why did you leave so early?"
Now my question is that how can we change the sentence if we omit the double quotation mark?
If I write the sentence like this (You can leave at 4.45 because if you leave before 4.45, the boss will ask you that why you left so early.), then will it break the universe?
