Once I finished crying, I felt annoyed. A man that was a total doofus had played with me. A player made me cry. I can't accept that! I just can't. So I stood up and had a real warm shower. The only things that are good right now are the free rent apartment that I'm staying in, cheap healthy food I buy from the markets, friends I made through work and that I have a comfortable life, financially. As I finished my shower as I thought of these things, my mind kept going back to William. What could he possibly be doing right now? Is he thinking of me?
I unpacked a few clothes from the moving box and paced back towards my room. My phone dinging as I arrive. Who could that be?
I I'm coming back home, Michelle. I need my things I
Shit! I completely forgot his things are still in here! So I harshly, but quickly put my clothes on and grabbed his clothes and personal belongings. I shoved them in a box, not caring how well I did it and went downstairs. I talked to the concierge and that if he saw the man that I came with has come, I requested that he will call for William and give the moving box to him. The concierge didn't really question about it and so I went outside. Not a minute later, I heard him call. Try as I might, I didn't want to answer. But I did.
"Hey~ Just came to tell you that I'll be right there! I'm across the road!"
I ended the call and ran. He will not see me. I do not plan to see William, either. Even if he pulls up in my head and even if he calls me. Even if I truly want him back, I will not see him. Not today. Not tomorrow, either. I just can't! I ran across the road and take a glimpse of a Korean girl with a cute little bob of a hairstyle. Her dress pale pink with pale yellow shoes. A bright big smile snatched at her cheeks. A cute girl she is. I would want to be friends with her. But as I look to the person that is talking to her. I see him. William!
As I gazed at him for a few seconds and slow down a little, I could see how happy he is. How much happier he had seemed in which I could even accept. As he glances towards me in a shock, I dashed. I ran so fast, not even stopping when he called for me because I get it. I get it.
He's happier without me.
Ever since high school, I was a runner. Not athletically good at running but I was still fast at running. My friends from Australia said I got the stamina to go forward as I ran, the teachers saying I have a good run-up. But when it came to the Athletics Carnival in the 100 m race, I was never good enough. But today, as I ran I saw the other people look and gasp. I sometimes like that attention. When I was in high school, I did a dance performance in front of the school for multi-cultural day and boy! Having people whoop and cheer and applaud, laugh and smile, that was the day I had a grasp of how it was to perform. It was amazing. I felt happy.
I sharply halt at the traffic light, people looking at me in astonishment or confusion. People looking at me saying "what the heck?" or "whoa! So fast." So I said sorry and bowed and they bowed back. Some asking "wow! She spoke Korean?" I smile and bow to the others and walk across the road. There's a convenience store nearby. I should go ahead and take a look. So I did. The cashier saying welcome. I scanned through the food aisles and took two bottles of soy sauce. I went to the cashier.
"저는 이것들을 사고 싶어요."
I would like to buy these, please.
"네.알겠습니다. 죄송합니다 하지만 외국사람입니까?"
Yes, I see. Sorry, but are you a foreigner?
Yes, that's right. Why?
"한국말 정말 잘하시네요."
You speak Korean really well.
I blush at the sudden praise and quickly disagreed with the statement. The female insisting I was and should be praised for it. She asked me where I was from and when I said I came from Australia she was so excited. Apparently, she studied in Australia for a few years back and just came back around a year ago. She said that we should meet up often on the weekend or something so she can help improve my Korean. I swiftly agreed and we exchanged numbers.
After about ten to twenty minutes of chatting, I left the convenience store to go back home. But as I tread on, I abruptly got a notification that Hihyunwoo has just posted a minute ago. I frantically open the app and see a full feature of Lee Hyun Woo's face. Damn!
He's having another Fan Meeting??
Just thinking... would you like me to leave Korean sentences up with the translation? I like making sentences as I make this because I'm actually learning on my own. If not, it's fine! I'll just have to make it clear if the protagonist is speaking in Korean or English with someone.
