“Commending you,” she briefly whispered to him, then smiled at his father. Hyeji’s intentions were pure so she couldn’t understand how Yoohwan should stop her. “Uncle, you know Yoohwan had won awards at dancing already! And gosh, I am so proud of him!” She was still expressing her own feelings about Yoohwan’s dancing when the boy started pulling him away from his father.
“Hwannie! How could you pull me away?” she grumbled. Wasn’t he trusting her enough? “I am… awakening him of the facts that you’re that good! He might favor your dancing. Don’t you like that?” But maybe, fathers are really that hard with their children. Hyeji has her issues with her own father and she couldn’t even help herself. And here she is trying to help her friend with his own daddy issues. “Well, I’m sorry..
but you should’ve just trusted me. What if he suddenly changes his mind about your dancing.Aigoo! you’re getting married in 2 years already?” She was surprised that even Yoohwan’s father would do this.
“It seems like that… ” He sighed. “And I don’t have problems with the marriage itself,
even if I think I’m too young for it, but the fact that I have to marry a girl, and I’m… in the other team, if you know what I mean.” Yoohwan looked at Hyeji with a serious look on his face. He was afraid and really curious about the girl’s response, and he hoped that she’ll accept that… He didn’t want to loose his so precious friend. Not as if he didn’t trust the girl, he do, more than anybody else, but this kind of thing was still … weird? Awkward? Disgusting…? He wasn’t sure about the right word for it.
He sat down, and looked away. He didn’t notice when did his hands start to tremble, but at that moment he couldn’t really care about it. “Hyeji…. Are we still friends, right?” He asked, but he wasn’t brave enough to look at the girl.
