She softly moaned while holding the sheet, and her gray eyes relaxed as they looked straight at him. Jung-hoo buried himself a little more inside and kissed Jae-hee’s open lips.
“Sunbae’s inside is so much better than I ever imagined. I think I am going to live here.”
Junghoo said this while kissing her and licking the saliva that came out. Seeing the face covered with pleasure, the slight frown on his forehead, and the end of the smile that leaked out despite that, Jaehee thought it was a good thing. Instead of answering, her hand hugged his neck rather than clutching the sheet.
Then Jung-hoo went all the way into Jae-hee.
She felt a big, hot rod was fully seated inside her. Jaehee poured out hot tears as she felt as if someone else was one with her.
“Does it hurt, Jaehee-ya? Does it hurt a lot?”
Jung-hoo asked, gently wiping away tears.
The feeling of the rubbing flesh was unfamiliar but the smell and the warmth from that person were reassuring. She realized that it wasn’t the same night as always spent alone in a cold room. She saw Junghoo looking down from above. She didn’t cry because she was in pain. The pain from the body cannot compete with the pain of the heart.
‘You just dug up my deepest wound.’
Jae-hee gasped without saying anything.
“Exhale slowly, there you go. Good job.”
It was not that Jaehee didn’t know how to breathe, but Junghoo was gentle when he said that.
Jae-hee, who was crying, laughed in between her tears, and Junghoo smiled as well.
Jaehee was squeezing him and Junghoo just slammed back in.
It was painful. But it was the ecstasy underneath that pain so the pain quickly faded away. She wanted to embrace this heat a little more. When Jae-hee’s arm holding him tightened Jung-hoo’s movements became faster. Slowly at first, he draped Jaehee’s legs over his shoulders. And then he moved as fast as he could without hesitation.
When Jung-hoo went deep inside Jae-hee and touched a weak spot, a foreign sound she never thought she could ever make slipped out.
“Jaehee, do you like it here?”
A squelching noise came from the point where they were connected. When Jung-hoo pierced the spot again, Jae-hee screamed. They held each other tight and she gradually reached her climax. She could no longer see Jung-hoo’s face because she was covered in tears.
With each other’s rough breathing and strong after- s*x smell, Jaehee realized this was the reality. Her mind had cleared as if she had just bungee jumped. Only she was frantically hanging onto Junghoolike he was a slender lifeline.
Jae-hee’s inner wall squeezed him painfully.
The movement accelerated, and he swelled and inflated inside her, he poured out everything inside.
The hot liquid squeaked and poured into the uterus. Jung-hoo, who had collapsed, exhaled slowly while hugging Jae-hee.
It was absolute silence. Even the sound of breathing was silenced.
She dozed off and on several occasions. The morning did not arrive. It wasn’t until much later that she realized it was because of the blackout curtains that were thickly covering the windows.
Jung-hoo drew Jae-hee into his arms every time she tried to sneak up from his arms.
The previously bright lights in the room were turned off after the affair. When she opened her eyes, her eyes were accustomed to the darkness. when she focused they revealed the outline of Junghoo’s face in front of her. Even when Jae-hee exhaled a colorful breath, he reacted sensitively to her slightest movement and woke up.
No wonder you’re tired.
Earlier, he moved her droopy body to the bathroom bathtub and washed her body. He ignored Jaehee’s request to turn off the lights and to go back to sleep. Instead, he wiped the ugly, dried bloodstains with his fingers one by one, asking if they hurt. After wiping them one by one he washed them. Then he locked her in his arms and fell asleep.
She attempted to reach out and touch his face but eventually gave up.
Her body was droopy, like soaked cotton.
Today’s unexplained absence is confirmed. I have never had a proper work break in ten years, except for unavoidable circumstances. I remember feeling this way when I first left school and started working in a restaurant. I was nervous the entire time I was working an unfamiliar job, so I slept a lot the first day. Even then, I was exhausted to the point where my body drooped like a wet cotton ball.
“Your gaze will pierce my face open.”
Jaehee was startled by the sudden words. She assumed he was sleeping.
“I said I wasn’t going to let you sleep, but I’m not going to complain because I didn’t, so get some more sleep.”
“It was your first time, but I couldn’t help myself and made it difficult. I can’t hold a virgin twice or three times, no matter how much of an animal I am.”
After realizing that Jaehee’s face was red even in the dark, Junghoo smiled softly. She dropped out of school and there were all kinds of scandals. There was even a rumor that she was going out to a bar to pay off her debts. Knowing the abusive language that the debtors threw at her, Jung-hoo’s heart cooled every time. It was only 10 years later, the moment when he saw Jaehee he realized that those were just rumors.
A woman who goes out to a bar can’t stand without makeup like that.
“I have to go home. I have to go to Jaewon too.”
It was strange and uncomfortable for her because she had never slept with her body attached to others, but she knew it was because she hadn’t experienced the warmth. She didn’t think it was a discomfort. Rather, as Jung-hoo said, she wanted to stick closely to him in this large bed and forget everything and sleep warmly.
Every time she thought so, she was reminded that this was not her place.
Jae-hee realized a long time ago that reality was not that easy.
“I’ll let you go after I take a nap.”
Jaehee forcibly closed her eyes at his words. Jung-hoo’s lips press down on her forehead. His hands were soft on her back as if putting a child to sleep. She was just trying to close her eyes, but she felt her consciousness gradually languish. And at some point, she was sucked into the abyss of quiet sleep.
He went to work after seeing Jaehee sleeping. He finished his urgent tasks. He took a half day off and returned home in a hurry. But she was nowhere to be found. It was strange to see an empty house. It was a familiar house, but the only thing missing was Jaehee, and it was strangely flat.
It was on the veranda where he found her traces.
Seeing that all the sheets stained with blood and bodily fluids were washed by hand and laid out finely, Junghoo laughed in disappointment. The washing machine in the utility room had been unused for a long time. It was brand new. He hadn’t even removed the plastic from the first time he brought it in. After all, there was a separate lady who did laundry and housework. All bedding and clothes were left at the laundry under the villa, and the washing machine there has never been used.
“I’m going crazy, Sunbae.”
He gripped the dripping sheet from the corner. One side of his chest pricked as he remembered Jaehee, who must have washed this with her body that couldn’t even move properly.
Min Jae-hee, you are a strange woman.
He’d never seen a woman like her before. He could bet his life that he wouldn’t be able to see another one like her in the future. He could smell her scent in the sheets, which she appeared to have washed and wrung out with her rough fingertips.
