Eun-Sun was totally uncomfortable with Mrs Lee's question. How was she supposed to tell her that her son was terribly frightening. Mrs Lee was an easy going and friendly person but that didn't mean she could say whatever she wanted right?
"Just be honest with me" Mrs Lee cut in when she observed Eun-Sun's hesitation.
"Auntie you know I can't really can't be too outspoken with you right" Eun-Sun said politely as they approached the cafe opposite the company. Eun-Sun was a respectful person and she wouldn't like to overstep her boundaries just because Mrs Lee was being nice. She saw her as a mother figure, thus she couldn't say anything she wanted.
Mrs Lee looked at her and she was pleased with Eun-Sun's upbringing. Everything about her showed how much of a good person she is.
"Eun-Sun believe me, I won't get angry with you okay. I'd appreciate your honesty, so just be true with me" Mrs Lee told her as they walked into the cafe shop. A waiter quickly approached them and ushered them to a seat before taking their orders.
"Well sincerely speaking, President Lee is not just frightening he is also annoying. That's not to mention how cold he is. Though he is a very capable man but that doesn't make up for how terrifying he is" Eun-Sun sang at a go, before observing the amused look on Mrs Lee's face.
"So you don't find him handsome?" Mrs Lee asked making Eun-Sun choke on her tea.
"Sorry" Mrs Lee said as she slowly patted on her back.
"You didn't answer my question" Mrs Lee said when Eun-Sun regained herself. Eun-Sun felt uncomfortable with Mrs Lee series of questions. Was she trying to kill her. How was she supposed to reply to such a question. She couldn't say he wasn't handsome when she knew he was blessed with the handsomeness of a demi-god. She couldn't count how many times her heart has fluttered when he came in view.
"So he isn't handsome?" Mrs Lee asked tilting her head as she looked intensely at Eun-Sun.
"Of...of course he is" She hastily replied.
"Then do you like him?"
"No!" Eun-Sun hurriedly but honestly replied. She definitely did not like that cold prick, who had been deriving pleasure in tormenting her. She gave an embarrassing look when she saw Mrs Lee serious look.
"Please don't be angry at my outburst. It's just that president Lee hasn't made himself likable to anyone" She explained in a small voice. She shouldn't have given her answer so directly.
"It's okay. But Dan-Han is a really nice and sweet person. You'll love him when you get to know him"
Eun-Sun almost spat out the tea in her mouth. President Lee nice and sweet. Obviously they weren't talking about same person. Why does it feel like she might referring to his invincible twin? And what was that about she liking or loving him when she gets to know him? She'd never see anything likeable in that cold man.
Mrs Lee almost felt like crying. Looking at Eun-Sun's reaction, it was enough to know that Dan-Han might never have a chance with her if he continued in his ways.
"Did you offend Dan-Han in anyway?" Mrs Lee asked when she suddenly remembered she had wanted to ask her that. She couldn't quite understand why Dan-Han was paying attention to her. That was so out of character.
Eun-Sun was taken aback by Mrs Lee question. 'Why is she asking all this questions?' Eun-Sun asked herself in her head. Should she tell her about it? No! she shook her head to take that idea of her mind. But that would make her a liar and she doesn't think it was right to lie to her.
"I'm indebted to him" Eun-Sun said in a low and embarrassed tone as she picked up her cup of tea. Mrs Lee was quite surprised at Eun-Sun's word, so she looked at her to continue.
"Well it wasn't entirely my fault. He hit me with his car and put me in a VIP room in the hospital. How was I suppose to pay" She paused and lowered her eyes before she added...
"So I absconded but I told him I'll pay him back when I get a new job" Eun-Sun was surprised when Mrs Lee burst into laughter.
"That's it?" She asked admist laughter.
"Yes" Eun-Sun nodded while Mrs Lee laughed even more. She couldn't believe her son was being petty...it only meant he might be sort of attracted to her but too proud to admit it.
Mrs Lee was excited about her new discovery of Dan-Han. She had found something to work on, something to keep her busy during the limited time she has.
"Eun-Sun you should come over for dinner sometime. I hope you'll come" She asked with a smile. This was going to be her first step in getting this two together.
"Don't worry about it. I won't make you uncomfortable. You've got to go back to work." She said as she got up from her seat.
"Thank you ma"
"Don't thank me. I like you alot. So hurry back before that son of mine find a new reason to punish you" She said hugging her.
Eun-Sun rushed back to the company as soon as Mrs Lee's driver picked her up. She had a bad feeling when she saw Secretary Chang-Wok waiting for her at the lobby.
"The president wants to see you"
Hey dearies!!!...It's me here again, I hope you aren't vexed with me. I'm sorry for how slow I've been going. Well I'm back and I hope to write to your satisfaction. Please be patient with me.
I love you all.
