“It’s all right. Anybody could fail.”
Seo-Wook noticed the results after seeing the U-PITE members’ reactions and spoke softly as if he were soothing him. However, the dark shade on Su-Gyeom’s face did not seem to disappear.
“What’s wrong? How did you fail? You didn’t fasten your seat belt?”
“That… I made an illegal U-Turn.”
Seo-Wook unknowingly uttered an exclamation and raised his hand to cover his mouth. He was confident that he wouldn’t get flustered even if he got an out-of-this-world answer, but he was quite surprised because he didn’t think about making an illegal U-turn.
At the same time, he imagined how embarrassed Su-Gyeom would have been and didn’t know what to do even after making an illegal U-turn, and laughed.
“……You’re not laughing, are you?”
“Would you please put your hands away……?”
“Oh, meat is here.”
When Seo-Wook was in a difficult situation and was embarrassed, an employee came in with the meat. Su-Gyeom still had suspicious eyes, but he quickly fixed his eyes on the glossy meat. Seeing his sparkling eyes, Seo-Wook thought it was a good thing that he bought meat.
When he heard the meat cooking golden brown, Su-Gyeom held chopsticks in his mouth and looked at the grill expectantly.
It was like a thousand years to wait for the meat to cook, even though he knew it would cook quickly because it was beef.
“You can eat now.”
The staff kindly guided the meat with juicy meat on the front plate. Since then, Su-Gyeom’s chopsticks began to move busily.
“Eat slowly. You will upset your stomach.”
As Han-Sol was worried, Su-Gyeom nodded and constantly pushed the food into his puffy cheeks. Meat, potato salad, meat, potato salad, meat…….
“Hyung, drink this, at least.”
This time Yoo-Chan held a glass of cider and handed it to him. Su-Gyeom drank the glass without hesitation. He felt like his throat was burning every time he drank the cider, but on the other hand, he liked it because it seemed to cool his chest.
It was when he was happily eating meat. Suddenly, Su-Gyeom tilted his head to the vibration felt in his pocket.
It was Su-Gyeom, who had no family or friends except for the U-PITE members. All the people who will contact him are gathered here now, so he doesn’t even know who has contacted him.
Su-Gyeom took out his cell phone with a curious look on his face. However, as soon as he saw the name on the screen, his face quickly crumpled like a piece of paper.
“You are doomed” was the biggest curse Su-Gyeom, who rarely uses harsh expressions, could do.
Su-Gyeom was well aware of the fear of ‘failing’ because he became a mangdol and ruined himself. Therefore, he did not use this expression recklessly.
Nevertheless, it meant that he was a worthy opponent.
“Why? Who is it?”
Yoo-Chan, sitting in front of Su-Gyeom, looked at his expression and asked anxiously. Then Su-Gyeom hurriedly fixed his expression and rolled up the corners of his mouth.
“Oh, let me talk for a minute.”
Su-Gyeom crept up from his seat, looking around. He couldn’t answer this call in the presence of Yoo-Chan.
The call didn’t hang up until Su-Gyeom left the room and headed to the corner at the end of the hall. Su-Gyeom walked slowly on purpose, but this damn thing stayed on the phone.
-Oh, hello. It’s me, Shin Myung-Hyun.
‘I know, you punk.’ Su-Gyeom secretly raised his middle finger in his pocket. No matter how much Shin Myung-Hyun was on the phone and couldn’t see Su-Gyeom holding up his middle finger, he had to manage his image as a celebrity, so he couldn’t openly cuss because he didn’t know who would see it.
-Are you doing something? You’re picking up the phone late.
“Oh, yes, well……. I was eating.”
-I’m not interrupting, am I? I’ll have to tell something quickly and hang up.
“Yes, well… What’s the matter?”
Su-Gyeom tried not to show a bitter look as much as possible. It was because he knew he could not hide his feelings well.
-I thought we’d meet up and have a meal. Coffee is good if you’re really busy.
-If you’re busy, you can schedule it. I just want to meet Su-Gyeom.
-If you’re busy this week, how about next week? There will be music shows, so if we set a day without music shows…… How about Monday?
Su-Gyeom sincerely agonized over Shin Myung-Hyun’s proposal. Should he see him or not?
Of course, he didn’t want to meet if he wanted to. However, on the other hand, there was also a desire to know how this guy twisted Yoo-Chan in his previous life.
Su-Gyeom didn’t like the fact that he couldn’t pay him back from their previous life. Therefore, he wanted to give him payback at least once as much as he could.
“Okay. I’ll check the time and get back to you.”
-Wow? Then I’ll be waiting for your call.
Shin Myung-Hyun raised his voice as if feeling happy. In response, Su-Gyeom stuck out his tongue at the phone screen and made fun of him.
-Then go and finish eating.
“Yes. I’ll go in.”
Su-Gyeom gave a polite greeting and hung up the phone. However, even though he hung up the phone, he still felt uncomfortable, so he grumbled and headed to the room.
“Who did you talk to?”
“There is some strange man.”
As soon as he went inside, Lee-Gyeom asked as if he had been waiting. Su-Gyeom didn’t even want to put Shin Myung-Hyun’s name in his mouth, so he answered roughly.
Tae-Won narrowed his eyebrows and asked again. Su-Gyeom raised his chopsticks to eat meat again but felt that his voice was low and looked at him.
“Why are you looking at me like that?”
“You said you were a strange man. What’s so strange about him? Who is it? Why does a strange man call you?”
When several questions poured out instantly, Su-Gyeom was embarrassed and bit his lips. He didn’t know what to answer at first, so he just started to eat again, but Tae-Won’s face became even grimmer.
“What is he doing?”
“What… It’s a singer…….”
He replied to the question again, but seeing Tae-Won with such a serious look, Su-Gyeom was scared that he might have done something wrong.
Su-Gyeom looked at Han-Sol, next to him, as a request for help. However, Han-Sol also looked scary. He didn’t think he could ask Han-Sol for help, so he looked at Yoo-Chan this time. However, he was no different from Han-Sol.
Su-Gyeom had no intention of getting help from Lee-Gyeom in the first place, so he moved on, and there was only Seo-Wook left. Su-Gyeom looked at him with expectation because he was good-natured.
Seo-Wook lightly raised the corners of his mouth and smiled, but his eyes were cold. Su-Gyeom opened his rabbit eyes, surprised by Seo-Wook’s rarely-seen expression.
“It’s nothing so serious. He is Shin Myung-Hyun from Black A…….”
“The one you gave your number to last time?”
Even before Su-Gyeom’s explanation was over, Yoo-Chan asked as if he were interrogating. Su-Gyeom nodded cautiously, looking at his countenance.
“Why does he call?”
“He wanted to meet…….”
Su-Gyeom felt depressed because he felt scolded even though he did nothing in particular. So, he drooped his eyebrows pitifully.
“Why would he want to meet?”
“I don’t know that…”
Come to think of it he didn’t even ask why. No, honestly, it was a little strange to ask. To ask the other person to eat, “Why?” is no different from arguing.
“Su-Gyeom gave his number?”
Seo-Wook, who was listening quietly, intervened. He was only smiling. His smile gave Su-Gyeom goosebumps.
” I didn’t give it to you…….”
“What are you talking about? You said Yoo-Chan didn’t have a cell phone and gave him your number.”
Han-Sol stepped in like a bolt. Su-Gyeom, embarrassed, looked around, but there seemed to be no one on his side.
It was then. Seo-Wook reached out his hand in the direction of Su-Gyeom. Seo-Wook opened his mouth when he was about to blink because he didn’t know what it meant.
“I’ll confiscate your cell phone from today.”
Better explain about that person from Black A
