Time seemed to stop for a moment. Su-Gyeom swallowed his dry saliva and looked at Seo-Wook. Seo-Wook tilted his head as if he noticed Su-Gyeom’s behavior, and smiled, slowly stretching his thick lips.
“Where are you going, Su-Gyeom?”
Su-Gyeom hesitated to answer Seo-Wook’s question. His eyes moved quickly in embarrassment.
Seo-Wook saw the way he rolled his eyes and stared at Su-Gyeom with friendly eyes as if he was dealing with a child.
Su-Gyeom felt a strange emotion in his eyes and felt some urgency. Su-Gyeom felt that he should no longer continue to indulge in this strange feeling. And to do that, he had to bounce right away.
Su-Gyeom slowly backed away. Then he stumbled on the doorstep. Seo-Wook reached out to hold Su-Gyeom.
Su-Gyeom saw his behavior, urgently opened his mouth, and shouted. It was because he thought that if he was caught now, it would create a crude and embarrassing situation that had come out of many romance works.
“Don’t catch me! I want to fall! I’ll fall down, Ah!”
Naturally, Seo-Wook, who was trying to catch Su-Gyeom, hesitated at his words.
In the meantime, Su-Gyeom sat on his buttocks. Fortunately, it didn’t hurt much because he was planning to fall. However, it was embarrassing. Su-Gyeom’s embarrassed face turned red.
“Su-Gyeom must be aiming for slapstick comedy.”
Seo-Wook naturally reached out to Su-Gyeom after jokingly saying it. It was clear that he meant for Su-Gyeom to grab his hand so he could get up.
If Su-Gyeom had been in his usual state without any thoughts, he would have stood up while grabbing his hands. But now he couldn’t bear to. Of course, the director couldn’t have liked him. It was never, ever, ever. However, it bothers him for some reason.
Su-Gyeom stood up on his own strength, pretending not to see Seo-Wook’s hand. However, the his plan to run away was not feasible because of Seo-Wook was still standing at the front door.
Seo-Wook narrowed his eyes when he noticed Su-Gyeom looking at the door.
“Su-Gyeom is very strange today.”
“Me? No way. Hahaha.”
“What? What? Oh, I’m getting sleepy. I should go to bed. Then I’ll go in and sleep now.”
Su-Gyeom decided not to stand out but managed to do the opposite. Of course, he knows it doesn’t make sense to suddenly feel sleepy in this situation, but he couldn’t help it. What is he supposed to do if his brain could only think of this much?
“Wait, Su-Gyeom. Wait a minute.”
Unfortunately, the director did not seem willing to let Su-Gyeom run away. He naturally grabbed Su-Gyeom by the wrist.
Su-Gyeom suddenly held his hand, became a surprised rabbit, and his eyes widened Seo-Wook slightly wrinkled his brows when he saw it.
“Tae-Won, what’s wrong with him today?”
“Well, I don’t know.”
He looked around.
“Does anyone know?”
When there was no answer, Seo-Wook carefully looked through the members’ faces one by one, turned his head again, and looked at Su-Gyeom, who seemed to be about to enter the room at any moment.
Still, Su-Gyeom was just stamping his feet and not knowing what to do. Although it was cute, the atmosphere itself was too strange to be cute now.
“Hmm…… that’s strange.”
“Well, can you please let go of my hand…….”
“How can I explain this atmosphere?”
“Well, so, director, this hand…….”
However, there was a heavy pressure mixed in his words.
And the four people’s expressions hardened when they saw the change.
At that moment, there was tense tension between the five people. No matter how tactless Su-Gyeom was, he couldn’t help feeling something when they revealed it like this and fought.
The anxiety became more and more realistic due to the strange air flow felt through the skin. Even if it was four people, it was already a problem and now the director was involved. Does he really like him?
When the thought came to this point, Su-Gyeom naturally swallowed his dry saliva. He blinked his big eyes and rolled his eyes around because he didn’t know where to look.
“Su-Gyeom’s reaction must be. Looks like someone’s trying to eat it.”
Seo-Wook hit the nail. Su-Gyeom held his breath without realizing it and covered his mouth. Seo-Wook’s eyes became sharp when he saw the reaction. His eyes swept the four men like a blade. However, the four also faced Seo-Wook without losing.
“Guys, Su-Gyeom was surprised. Why did you do that?”
“And the director.”
Lee-Gyeom asked coldly. It was never a way of speaking to the director of the agency. As if dealing with the enemy, it was hostile. He was worried that Lee-Gyeom would be at a disadvantage, so Su-Gyeom nearly forgot about the situation he was in.
“Until when are you going to pretend?”
“……I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
“Then you don’t know.”
“Hey, hey. Lee-Gyeom, are you crazy?”
Surprised, Su-Gyeom took off his shoes as if he were throwing away Seo-Wook’s hand and approached Lee-Gyeom. He wanted to shut him up right away. Of course, he actually intended to. More than that was dangerous.
Su-Gyeom didn’t have any special affection for Lee-Gyeom, but he got attached to him as the same member and he didn’t want him to be kicked out of U-PITE because he was fired while attacking the director of his agency.
“I don’t know exactly what you guys did, but do you mind if I join you?”
“Are you sure you can do that?”
However, contrary to Su-Gyeom’s assumption that Seo-Wook would be angry, he was smiling leisurely. It seemed as if this situation was interesting. In the first place, he seemed to be simply enjoying a game.
“Are you confident?”
Lee-Gyeom could not answer Seo-Wook’s question.
In response to Lee-Gyeom’s reaction, Su-Gyeom watched him with nervousness because Lee-Gyeom was about to rush to catch Seo-Wook at any moment.
Then Su-Gyeom soon realized that he would not be able to prevent this with his own power, and looked to Tae-Won for help. However, Tae-Won was also staring at the director with a fierce face, so Su-Gyeom had to give up quickly.
Realizing that Tae-Won could not stop Lee-Gyeom, Su-Gyeom looked back at Han-Sol and Yoo-Chan this time. However, the two also looked completely different from their usual gentle and soft image.
In the end, Su-Gyeom was at his wits’ end and only stamped his feet.
Then suddenly, he felt that he didn’t understand this situation. It was five people who were actually trying to do it, not him, but Su-Gyeom can’t understand why he was so worried. On the other hand, there was also a sense of injustice.
“I don’t know, I want to go in. I’m going to sleep.”
Su-Gyeom threw some words in a rough manner. Then the five people’s eyes were on Su-Gyeom at once. Su-Gyeom was momentarily startled by the look, but the emotion caused by unfairness was greater.
He couldn’t understand why he had to be so nervous. Until just an hour ago, he was lying in bed comfortably and fiddling with his cell phone. The current reality of having to suffer from emotions that were not his was unfair.
“Why are you being so scary? I don’t even know what the situation is…….”
“Su-Gyeom, are you crying?”
“Hey, why are you crying?”
“Hyung, are you crying? Don’t cry.”
“Hyung, I’m sorry. Don’t cry.”
“Su-Gyeom, what’s wrong? Are you okay?”
When Su-Gyeom muttered disgruntledly, the five of them seemed startled and didn’t know what to do. Su-Gyeom noticed the changed air, drove this momentum, and suffered a reversal of the atmosphere.
He thought wanted to cry sadly if he could, but his emotional acting skills were not good enough. So Su-Gyeom pretends to cry roughly.
Su-Gyeom pretended to control his emotions as if he was sniffling alone for a while, and looked at Seo-Wook with big eyes.
Then Seo-Wook seemed to be flustered and soon fixed his expression. He held Su-Gyeom in his arms without anyone to stop him.
Everyone is fighting for SG. It’s just so chaotic.
Also, my ko-fi because it’s been reported. So many things happened this week forgive me for not updating. I’m wondering if I should take down all of the translated KR works here because the site is honestly at risk or if you guys have other alternatives so you could read.
I’m thinking of dropping all of my KR translations but I’m still thinking about it. I mean I can’t support the site without posting my updated chapters here since I need it for site fees and now my ko-fi is banned too.
