Park Joo-Hoon calmly grabbed his innocent brother and led him to the sofa, questioning him. Kim San definitely went out to take a class today, but what happened on the way here?
Then, Kim San glossed over his words with an upset expression.
“Hmm. I want to be friends with someone, but it wasn’t easy.”
“That’s not Gido Hae, is it?”
“What? He’s, um…… I don’t know him.”
Kim-san smiled awkwardly. Park Joo-Hoon, quickly inferred what happened today from the few words.
“Cha Ga-Ram is bothering you.”
“What? He didn’t bother me. It’s just that we’re not close yet.”
Kim San did not avoid his eyes this time. Even Park Joo-Hoon heard how much Cha Ga-Ram’s group chewed Kim San from behind. Meanwhile, Kim San looked so calm while wondering if it was because they were not close yet.
However, Park Joo-Hoon is probably the one most aware of Kim San’s condition, which seems to have been missing a screw somewhere. He was not deceived. Park Joo-Hoon is sure they were picking on Kim San.
But now, there was something more urgent than Cha Ga-Ram.
“Let’s talk about it later. More than that, Kim San. There’s a rumor that you’re a dedicated guide to Gido Hae. Is that right?”
Kim San was reluctant to keep lying to his close Hyung and he blushed without realizing it. Park Joo-Hoon completely misunderstood it and ran wild again.
“I told you to be careful of that crazy guy from day one. He’s so terrible and so unsociable.” Kim San, who had been listening to Park Joo-Hoon for a long time, asked, tilting his head as if wondering. “Are you and Mr. Esper know each other well?”
“Huh? No, …… not that.”
Of course, Park Joo-hoon did not have direct contact with Gido Hae. There is no need for a C-class guide to go guiding an S-class Esper. In any case, there was no guide who did not know the evil deeds of Gido Hae, even though there was no contact point.
Kim San, who listened to Park Joo-hoon at that time, looked stern. It seemed to be imitating someone, but he felt like seeing a solemn chick, so Park Joo-Hoon had to curl his lips and bite.
The chick’s speech, which began soon, was even crazier.
“Hyung. My grandfather said we shouldn’t be talking bad about people if we hadn’t experienced it in person.”
“Oh, yeah, yeah.”
“He taught me that rumors are easy to misrepresent and contain bad intentions, so don’t be prejudiced in treating people.”
He was right on end. Except for the fatal problem of Gido Hae the subject of the rumor.
The monsters even shook their heads and ran away due to the notoriety of Gido Hae. Therefore, Park Joo-Hoon honestly thought that if he admonished his grandfather, doubting he is just senile then Kim San would understand.
However, Park Joo-Hoon had no choice but to affirm bewilderedly because he could not say such wishful words to the elderly in another’s house.
“It’s like that.”
“So Hyung, let’s live without saying bad things.”
“…Yes, I’m sorry.”
Park Joo-Hoon sighed deeply and apologized to Kim San, who smiled and talked to him. It was the first apology that Park Joo-Hoon, who was not very good-tempered, gave.
The problem of “Gido Hae” is not something that should be dismissed easily, but he was afraid that Kim San would imitate his grandfather again and make a solemn expression.
On the other hand, the possibility of a rumor was increasingly weighted. Like himself, Kim San is also a C-class guide, but no matter how bad his matching rates with other guides are, it is not a good idea to leave it to a C-Class guide.
However, Kim San was hiding something. When Park Joo-hoon was thinking about what that obvious lie was, he suddenly heard some strange words.
“And you never know. Even if the rumor about him was bad, Mr. Esper might be a very nice and kind person, right?”
It was something that gave him goosebumps all over. Park Joo-Hoon made a serious face and touched Kim San’s forehead.
Was it because he is sick?
“Kim San, do you have a fever?”
Park Joo-Hoon cursed Cha Ga-ram this time as he continued to touch Kim San’s soft cheeks. He wonders how the arrogant bastard bullied the child to result in him saying such nonsense.
Without knowing what he was worried about, Kim San just said yes. He likes it when his Hyung listens to what he says.
The next day. Lee Jae-Chul came to pick up Kim San as he contacted in advance.
“Ahjussi, are you here?”
“Yes. How have you been?”
On purpose, he pretended not to see the disturbance that happened yesterday and said hello to him. Kim San stood next to him, saying that he was doing well without knowing what he was thinking.
On the surface, it looked like nothing really happened. With a wrinkle-free attitude as if he had never heard the abusive language of Kim San being called a parasite in front of his eyes.
He could have doubted the credibility of the word because he only heard it from Gido Hae, but Lee Jae-Chul’s face slightly hardened. There was no need to check the authenticity of the rumors, which were heard without further examination. Cha Ga-Ram and his party were talking badly about him every day.
Thanks to this, the evaluation of Kim San within the guide association was very muddy. Suddenly, rumors that a class C guide was in charge of Gido Hae were being dismissed as nonsense at first.
However, it was a source of trouble that Cha Ga-Ram and his party vividly spread rumors about Kim San. Kim San proved to be the reality of what was regarded as an urban ghost story. Cha Ga-Ram and his party just did it with malice, but strangely, they helped Gido Hae.
“What happened? Is there anything difficult in class?”
“Yes, I’m studying hard. There are so many things I don’t know yet.”
Even when asked openly, Kim San smiled brightly and only said that he liked studying because he had gained a lot of new knowledge.
Kim San was also hard to predict for Lee Jae-Chul, who was only used to dealing with a noisy group.
Thus, Lee Jae-Chel could not believe everything Kim San said was okay with his relationship with people around him. He is sure Kim San is having a pretty hard time with his roommate.
“By the way, where are we going?”
“……I will tell you later.”
The two people who met inside the guide center were heading deep inside the hallway, not outside. Even though Lee Jae-Chul came every time under the pretext of guiding Kim San around, he suddenly took to a random place and Kim San did not raise any questions.
Then he took his ID card three times and came to the floor with the highest security level without asking what he was curious about. If he decided to kidnap Kim San, it would be the easiest kidnapping in the world.
Lee Jae-Chul was uncomfortable with his careless attitude. His conscience, which has been thrown away for a long time, keeps trying to show its presence.
“You’ll find out when you get there.”
Even if he noticed Lee Jae-Chul’s change of heart, he closed his mouth. He remembered Gido Hae’s stern warning to stop him from talking nonsense and to just bring him in.
Even he lightly ignored the principle of asking in advance and guiding them to the guiding room. Once it’s in his hands, Gido Hae is confident in persuading him somehow.
Lee Jae-Chul felt like leading a strangely innocent lamb directly to the wolf’s mouth. He feels bitter because he feels like he has become a terrible human being. That expression is not entirely wrong.
“There you go.”
At the innermost part of the guide center was the most secure area. There was nothing valuable there, so security wasn’t tight. On the contrary, it was close to security in case anyone who stepped in the wrong place would get hurt.
This is because this is a dedicated guiding room for the Gido Hae.
Even before explaining it, Kim San walked forward. Gido Hae awaited where Kim San headed.
Lee Jae-Chul had seen countless people running away after seeing the Gido Hae, but he had never seen anyone running to him as if they were happy, so Lee Jae-chul was frozen.
“Long time no see.”
“Long time no see, Kim San.”
The scene of Gido Hae smiling at Kim San was even more creepy.
The sight of him pretending to be nice made him sweat strangely. He was disguised as just an ordinary flower, but Kim San shouldn’t have believed it. Since Gido Hae is a carnivorous monster.
Lee Jae-Chul, who failed to overcome his conscience, just chose to disappear. When he thought of Kim San, he felt strangely sick in his stomach, but he couldn’t help it.
Because he already made his choice.
“I think it’s been almost 10 days.”
Gido Hae watched Lee Jae-Chul go out holding his stomach, lowering his gaze again.
It was also mysterious for Gido Hae that Kim San, whose cheeks were slightly red, was glad to see him. Anyway, it seems that Lee Jae-Chul didn’t say nonsense on his way here.
“Let’s go this way for now.”
The guiding room here looked ominous with layers of thick iron plates welded together. Nevertheless, Kim San calmly followed Gido Hae into it. It was meaningless to block the exit.
Kim San was looking around as if he was amazed. He suddenly looked back at Gido Hae. Gido Hae was observing because he thought Kim San would raise his guard now, but he suddenly said.
Kim San is probably as innocent as a growing child. The purest of all. I would be happy if you could vote for this story in NU at the moment its only 3.7 so if you like the story go and give this a 5.
