Part 2 Chapter 59: Doubled-sided (2)
Jun, Sul, and Jung talk for a moment before heading inside. The mysterious man curses his bad luck and just watches from a distance.
The next day, In Ho is trying to call In Ha. She hasn't been picking up her calls recently. When he sees Sul, he teases her and calls her "naturally curly hair." When Sul protests, she yells that the reason that they had a drink in the beginning is because In Ho was crying. They both remember the rather embarassing moment of In Ho crying, and avoid that topic immediately. In the alleyway, In Ho talks to In Ha. He asks her if she's actually taking her accounting classes and lectures her that she should actually do something this time. She hangs up on him and he's extremely irritated. But he turns back, and sees someone in the alleyway.
Sul is walking down the hall, wondering if In Ho is actually going to be leaving soon. She thinks he's acting way too carefree for someone who's leaving, and wonders if there might be some sort of good-bye party for him. But then, Sung Eun runs down the hall without greeting Sul. When Sul looks into the classroom, it seems like Sung Eun has hit the blond man, and everybody is criticizing and insulting her. Sul heads over to ask Sung Eun what happened, but Sung Eun yells at Sul to stop talking to her. She claims that rumors are getting worse as she hangs out with Sul. Sul asks what rumors she is talking about. Apparently there are rumors that Sul only hits on the foreign instructors, and acts coldly towards people who aren't "smart." Sul coldly asks if Sung Eun really believes those rumors. She yells that Sung Eun knows that these rumors aren't true, and asks why she's acting like this. Sung Eun yells back that Sul herself is suspicious of Sung Eun's relationships. Sul is unable to answer her claims. Sung Eun yells that she knew that Sul was suspicious about her partners, but that she looked over it because Sul seemed like a good person anyway. When Sul tries to talk it out, Sung Eun sobs that Sul won't understand her feelings, and that she's hearing worse rumors because of Sul. She says that they should just stop talking to each other, since nothing good will come out of it.
Sul is confused. She is shocked that she looks that way in the eyes of others. She felt something strange, but never really paid attention to what goes on in the tutoring center around her. She never thought that the inattentiveness she forced upon herself to stop her sensitivity would have a bad influence on the people around her.
At the same time, In Ho faces his co-worker from the countryside. He is shocked and wonders how his co-worker found him, and the co-worker points to the ad for the English tutoring center that In Ho modeled for. He explodes and asks if this is because the boss from the countryside. In Ho yells that his co-worker can't do this to him after all In Ho's done for him. He wonders if his ex-boss is here as well, but the co-worker explains that his ex-boss will be heading down in a few days. He advises In Ho to leave, since the ex-boss isn't the type of person to be so obsessed with catching In Ho. He explodes with irritation.
Meanwhile, Sul is ranting about her situation to Jung. She feels that it's unfair that everybody else asks questions to the instructors, but when she does it, it's so-called "bad." Jung grabs her hand and asks her to calm down. Sul realizes that the lack of communication led to all these misunderstandings, just like she misunderstood Jung. She mutters to herself that it might be karma getting back at her now, and is embarassed at her state. Sul feels that there is still a big pile between herself and Jung, but decides to just forget about it, before it leads up to something troublesome. Jung offers to drop her off back home, but Sul is still worried that something big might happen around her and she won't realize it.
Back in Sul's neighborhood, the lady in the house next door yells that Sul is friends with the "pervert" and asks for his address. She claims that the pervert climbed up her house wall and was trying to steal her money, underwear, and laptop. She caught him, and he ran away, leaving her laptop behind. The police told her that the pervert probably knew her daily schedule, knowing when she will leave and come back, so she claims that it's Joo Yong, who lives right next door. Sul tries to defend Joo Yong. The police asks her Joo Yong's appearances. She explains that he's skinny, of average height, and has long, black hair. The police tells the lady next door that it isn't Joo Yong, since she testified that the pervert was very tall and had red-ish hair. He trie to calm her down, saying that she'll only be a bother to the investigation if she accuses people like that.
Jung guides Sul home and he seems worried that the criminal hasn't been caught. Sul tries to check if nobody is in the empty room next door. When Jung asks why she is checking next door, she explains that someone might be in the empty room. He asks about Jun, but Jun won't be coming home tonight. She remembers all that has happend - the strange sounds, the police... But tells Jung that the pervert probably won't come again, especially after the police has come here. Jung asks her, "Should I stay here tonight?"
Okay first of all
I'm so sorry for this late update ;____;
I was on a trip in some wilderness.... and literally there was no wi-fi, no 3G. I'm so sorry that I didn't alert you guys that I'd be on a trip, but it's totally my fault. I totally assumed that there would be 3G out there so I would be able to post an alert via cellphone, but I couldn't... ;_____;
