Cheese in the Trap Part 2 Chapter 35 – Dinner Show Act 2 (4)
When Sul wakes up, she finds a fancy dinner in front of her. She wonders where she is, and finds Jung on the other side of the table. He grins and at her surprise, he tells her that they should have dinner, no matter how hectic things gets. When she asks how he brought her here, he replies: “Have you seen anything that I can’t do?” She’s stunned at the response. Sul is now nervous, asking that she can’t afford this fancy dinner, and he responds that he’ll be the one buying.
Sul then exclaims that they haven’t even heard Bo Ra’s father’s surgery results yet. Jung retorts: “Do you have to complain about each and every little thing even right now? We’ve come here after all that trouble. Can’t you just relax and enjoy the meal? Because I ignored your greetings, kicked your files…. Embarrassed you, laughed at you, didn’t save you… So you don’t want to eat a meal with me~ is that it?” At her shock, he continues: “You always observed me from the start. But you can’t look over anything I do, hm? Why do you want to nitpick everything I do and hear excuses for all of it? Who are you to expect the perfect from me? I’ve tried so hard, but we’re still so far apart, huh? Why don’t you stop trying to nitpick everything and actually try to approach me first? It doesn’t matter whether it was an accident or not… If you accepted my confession, you should take responsibility. Right? What are you going to do now? Do you want to continue to be apart from me like this? Or – “
Sul wakes from her dreams. She looks at Jung dozing off and wonders why Jung was showing off his debating skills in her dream… At that moment, Bo Ra’s father completes his surgery. Sul tries to wake Jung up, but he doesn’t budge. She decides to go wake up Bo Ra first.
Bo Ra talks to the doctor. After the conversation, Bo Ra is overjoyed, and thanks the doctor several times. She announces to Sul and Eun Taek that her father was lucky, and he’ll be fine for now. He’ll have to receiver therapy for a while, so Bo Ra is a bit disappointed at that. Sul and Eun Taek cheer Bo Ra up, and Bo Ra thanks the two for staying with her until this time. She tells them that her father’s friends and older sister are heading over, so they can leave now. Eun Taek claims that he’ll stay, however. Bo Ra tells him that he should go take a bath. At their little argument, Sul is a bit comforted. She then leaves to wake up Jung.
As she walks through the dark hallway, she thinks about herself a bit: “Family, friends, classmates, hoobaes, sunbaes, bosses, professors, acquaintances, neighbors, and boyfriend… Value, behavior, relationship, manners. Thoughts and ways of thinking…. And myself, stuck in the middle of all that, without a clear distinction – The midpoint of my 3rd year summer break passed along like that.”
She sees Jung sleeping, and has the sudden urge to take a picture of this. As she searches for her cell phone, he wakes up. She’s surprised, and tells him that Bo Ra’s father is well and at the recovery room. He smiles and responds: “Anyway, that’s a relief.” She sits next to Jung and replies “I’m sorry for yelling like that.”
He then apologizes for interfering in her matters when she was surely competent enough to handle her own problems. He adds on: “I’ll be careful for those kinds of behaviors… where I suddenly ignore you or become cold. I think I’ve been like that before as well. I don’t know why I keep on acting like a kid.”
Sul replies: “I’ll… work hard too. Even if you have some troubles with each other, let’s forget it all… And so let’s tell each other our problems right away - Not just me. But sunbae as well.” Jung agrees, and then jokes that he’ll never make Sul angry again. Just then, Sul’s stomach growls, and Jung brings out some things he bought a while ago. He hands over a riceball. He explains that there weren’t any of the “bomb” type, and Sul replies that there aren’t many of those. When he peels off the wrapper, she exclaims: “You peel it off well now, huh?”
He responds: “Have you seen anything that I can’t do?”
She replies: “Ah – show off.” He laughs: “What about me?”
