The hand that was busy moving on the frying pan stopped. Jung-hoo hugged Jae-hee’s waist.
“It looks delicious.”
She placed the omelet on a plate and set out the salad and freshly baked bread. A satisfying breakfast was prepared. Jung-hoo used a fork to eat his omelet. “It tastes great,” with a smile, he said. Jaehee kept her chin on her hand as she watched him. She then put a piece of bread with butter and jam in her mouth.
“What’s your job?”
“I took a vacation, Jung Hoo.”
“Do you remember yesterday? Sunbae said my name was pretty.”
Jae-hee said flatly. Drinking didn’t make her lose memories about last night. However, Jung-hoo would not know about it, so she decided to deny it.
“When you were on top of me?”
“What are you talking about?”
“I don’t even remember, my memories about last night are blurry. Don’t you feel sick? It must have hurt to move in such a narrow place.”
His eyes were pointing explicitly at her lady parts under the table.
“How long can I believe your words?”
He ate the rest of the toast neatly while laughing. Jung-hoo clicked his tongue low when he saw Jae-hee, who couldn’t even touch the toast.
“From today onwards Sunbae is going to stay with me. The things in the living room are things you will need while you are here. If you need anything more, we can go shopping together and buy it.”
“What are you gonna do with me now?”
“I told you I was pressing you for debt. I have never said that I will receive it as money.”
Standing up from the table, he came to Jae-hee and gently placed his hand on her shoulder. His fingers blatantly touched her cheeks and the nape of her neck. Just following her thin neckline, which he could catch in one hand, sent heat directly to Junghoo’s lower part.
“Let’s try spending money on you, Sunbae.”
“What do you mean?”
“98.79 million won. Let me spend it on you. Now I’m saying that all the money I spend on you will be written off of debt.”
He said with a laughable voice, but he was not joking at all. After hearing what he had to say, Jaehee was momentarily at a loss as to how to react, because it was really unexpected. No matter what he says casually as he always does, this was nonsense.
“And you were in debt with the remaining 48.31 million won. I returned it. Then, the money you have to spend in the future is 147.1 million won.”
How did he even know I was in debt? And he paid it all back?
“The interest is 10 million won every day. Private finance is like that, right?”
“Not at all!”
Jae-hee jumped up from her seat. She had never heard of such a calculation. Ten million won in interest every day. Jung-hoo smiled sweetly and gently pressed his hand on her shoulder to make Jae-hee sit back in her chair.
“Even the loan shark doesn’t ask for interest 10 million won per day.”
“I know, but I guess I’m worse than him, well.”
He means it. He has no intention of changing his mind, no matter what she says to him. What can she say to convince him?
“If rational persuasion worked, I wouldn’t have said this.”
He tore a piece of bread and placed it in Jaehee’s mouth as if to tell her not to think about it any longer. Something is wrong with Junghoo right now. Even though he was speaking gently, Jae-hee could sense that he was in a more vulnerable situation than when he held her. His eyes were dangerously bright as if he didn’t want to hear what she had to say.
“Do you hate me or think I am hateful?”
“If I hated you, I would have strangled you when we met again.”
He continued with a smile.
“I haven’t decided what I want to do with Sunbae either.”
I want to burrow into Min Jae-hee’s arms like crazy. I want to spend the entire day pouring myself into her, eating with her, and listening to everything she casually throws out to me and me alone. Jung-hoo has yet to express these emotions. And if he does define these emotions, Min Jae-hee is likely to leave him, just as she did ten years ago.
“Then promise me one thing.”
thanks for the update ☺️
