“……That’s a good idea.”
“Right? Oh, but is the director not feeling well? You don’t look so happy.….”
Contrary to the word “good idea,” Seo-Wook’s expression was not very good. Su-Gyeom, who noticed his change, asked anxiously. Su-Gyeom felt he was unfamiliar because he was always wearing that unique smile.
“Do I look like that?”
“I worried you, and it’s my fault.”
“It’s not. That’s possible.”
At Seo-Wook’s words, Su-Gyeom shook his head. Then Seo-Wook laughed hard. It was only after seeing the smile that Su-Gyeom felt a little relieved.
Su-Gyeom responded cheerfully with a more comfortable mind to Seo-Wook’s words. Su-Gyeom, who fixed his eyes on the food, hurriedly used his chopsticks.
When Su-Gyeom arrived at the accommodation, he nodded toward Seo-Wook. Seo-Wook waved his hand lightly to see Su-Gyeom off.
Su-Gyeom hummed and headed to the elevator, holding the extra tteok-galbi and braised short ribs in both hands.
Su-Gyeom, happily walking, was surprised to see Han-Sol leaning next to the elevator. He wondered why Han-Sol was here, but he was glad to see him.
“Why are you out there?”
“I’ve been waiting for you.”
“How do you know when I’ll come?”
“I have a radar limited to you. I came down because I thought you would arrive now.”
Han-Sol jokingly replied to Su-Gyeom’s worried remarks. Even after hearing that, Su-Gyeom’s worries about Han-Sol did not go away. Because he was concerned about his health. He had been waiting for the cold underground parking lot.
“Wasn’t it cold?”
“I’ve only been here for a minute .”
“Yes. Give it to me, and I’ll hold it.”
When Su-Gyeom asked, Han-Sol casually took the luggage in Su-Gyeom’s hand. However, Han-Sol’s hand was as cold as ice. Surprised, Su-Gyeom looked at Han-Sol.
“Why are you looking at me like that?”
“Your hands are so cold! You’ve been waiting for a long time!”
“Yes, actually I’ve been waiting for a long time.”
“Why did you do that? What if you catch a cold?”
Han-Sol laughed as if it was no big deal, but Su-Gyeom was saddened. Then Han-Sol naturally clung to Su-Gyeom and folded his arms.
“Oh, so why did you come out and wait?”
“It was because I wanted to see you as soon as possible.”
Han-Sol leaned on Su-Gyeom with a grin. Su-Gyeom combed Hansol’s hair with his hand and climbed onto the elevator together.
“Even your hair is cold. How long have you been out there?”
“I didn’t stay that long. It’s just that the underground parking lot is cold.”
“It’s a problem because you are in that cold place.”
“What did you talk about with the director?”
Han-Sol naturally changed his words due to Su-Gyeom’s criticism. Su-Gyeom also noticed that he was trying to change the subject, but he pretended he didn’t see. It was because he thought he was also to blame.
“I didn’t say much. I just ate.”
“Well, you must have talked about something. You didn’t say anything and just ate?
“That’s not true.”
“I know. What did you say?”
Su-Gyeom felt that Han-Sol’s question was somewhat persistent. Su-Gyeom, wondering why he was so stubborn with his gentle and soft personality, suddenly thought about it and looked at Han-Sol.
Han-Sol seemed jealous because he thought Su-Gyeom was the only one favored by the director.
When he thought about it that far, Su-Gyeom thought that his behavior was important.
“That… … Sol.”
Han-Sol’s expression darkened somewhat as Su-Gyeom carefully spoke. Su-Gyeom, who saw the reaction, thought Han-Sol was offended and swallowed dry saliva. He was worried about how to resolve this misunderstanding.
“Yes, tell me.”
“You may misunderstand. It’s not like that.”
After much consideration, Su-Gyeom decided to say it directly. It was because he thought it would be ineffective to talk in circles to resolve Han-Sol’s misunderstanding.
His guess was correct.
“I know you’re in a situation where you might be jealous. Even in a different perspective, it can make you feel bad. But it’s not really like that. Still, I will be more careful in the future to avoid misunderstanding.”
“Hyung, how did you know?”
“I know everything. How can I not know how you feel.”
Han-Sol seemed to be shocked by Su-Gyeom’s words. He couldn’t talk for a while, and his lips were trembling. When he saw his reaction, Su-Gyeom felt even more sorry. It was because he thought he would be embarrassed if he knew had been jealous and had a hard time.
“I’m so sorry, Sol.”
“…… since when? Since when did you know?”
“Since when did you know how I felt? Since when?….”
Han-Sol sighed and was at a loss.
Su-Gyeom wondered why Han-Sol was so embarrassed, but when he changed his position and thought about it, he would be very embarrassed if others noticed his jealousy.
“I just found out. I’m sorry I didn’t notice earlier.”
Han-Sol closed his mouth at Su-Gyeom’s answer. He didn’t know what to say. Su-Gyeom was also worried about what to say to him.
There was a moment of silence between the two. Meanwhile, the elevator arrived on the 15th floor, where the accommodation was.
“………Let’s get off.”
Su-Gyeom said carefully while looking at the elevator door that opened. But Han-Sol was still. Su-Gyeom was embarrassed when he saw his reaction. He wonders if his words were that shocking, and on the other hand, he was worried about Han-Sol.
“Sol, are you alright?”
“Hyung, then…… What’s your answer?”
“Huh? What answer……?”
Su-Gyeom tilted his head to an unexpected question. He didn’t know he’d say this. In the first place he was unaware what Han-Sol is asking.
Han-Sol continued with an urgent look, while Su-Gyeom blink his big eyes because he didn’t understand what question he was talking about.
“You said you know my feelings, then you should give me what you think.”
“What I think?”
Even after hearing Han-Sol’s explanation, Su-Gyeom didn’t know what to say and asked back. He quickly tried to think, but couldn’t understand what he has to say.
“Can I ride?”
Someone carefully asked. A woman can’t get on because of them.
“Sure, sure. You can get on. Sorry!”
Su-Gyeom grabbed Han-Sol’s arm to leave so she could get on. It was only after the elevator closed that Su-Gyeom’s flustered face returned to normal.
While muttering to himself, Su-Gyeom can’t still understand what Han-Sol is talking about. His head begins to spin noticing Han-Sol still staring at him.
“I’m not sure?”
“You don’t know?”
“Yes. Sorry, no matter how I think about it, I don’t know.”
After thinking about it, Su-Gyeom decided to answer honestly. No matter how much he think about it. He couldn’t come up with an answer. He thought it would be more appropriate to answer honestly than to lie.
However it seemed like Han-Sol didn’t want such answer from him. He looked disappointed and sad.
“I just keep thinking, but I don’t know.”
Su-Gyeom was restless and apologized again. Han-Sol had a bittersweet expression on his face, but smiled slightly.
“I’m just glad you didn’t refuse right away.”
“Didn’t you not reject it?”
“That’s true but…”
“Then that’s it.”
It was a strange word. What is there to refuse? Su-Gyeom tilted his head, but there was nothing to say, so he didn’t add anything else.
“Let’s go in.”
Han-Sol smiled bitterly and took the lead. His back looked particularly precarious.
Su-Gyeom couldn’t bear to chase Han-Sol’s back and just looked at him for a while.
