I LIKE YOU, KWON! – Chapter 41
After having tea with their CEOs, the 2AM boys and the BEG girls pretended to leave for their own dorms, only to meet again at Han Suites for their own little party. It was a victorious day for them but at the same time, they knew someone had just lost her dream – Raina.
“It was really scary how Park PD dealt with the whole situation. It was almost cold-blooded and though Raina’s boss tried, we knew it would all be in vain. I feel a little sympathetic towards Raina, really.”
“I was shocked at how cruel Jin Young hyung was as well. Would it have been better if we had simply left it to the netizens?”
“To be honest, I doubt it would have turned out any differently. It was just a matter of who got who first. On some levels, you have already slowed down the process by preventing the netizens from finding the culprit first. If Pledis had tried to deny and then our side presented them with the evidence, it would have caused more damage.”
JeA spoke up, knowing that Ga-In and Seul Ong were both feeling guilty for crushing Raina’s dreams. But she knew that no matter what, it would have been the same results.
“Let’s not be all gloom and doom! We did win this round and for that I think we need to celebrate!! What should we do today?”
“We are having parties way too often no? Kwon-ah! Great foresight in renting this apartment! Looks like it’s going to be a place where we can run to when we want some privacy!”
“Kwonnie hyung, I think you should make all of us a set of keys! Then we can just come over whenever we want!”
Jin Woon teased Kwon since he saw the look of panic when Narsha mentioned that they see their apartment as a place where they would come for privacy. He never misses a chance to tease any of his hyungs when he finds one.
“No! Why would I make a set of keys for all of you? Narsha noona, must as I would love to have all of you come over, I rented this place so Ga-In noona and I could have some alone time together.”
“Aish~ Can’t you see Jin Woon was just teasing you? You get baited too easily!”
Everyone laughed and Ga-In just shook her head in embarrassment.
“Anyway, what shall we do? Should we order food and eat here? Or should we go out?”
“I think let’s go to the supermarket and get some food then we can eat here. We had so much fun last night!”
“Let’s make it more interesting! Let’s pair up and have a cooking competition! I want to be paired up with Chang Min!”
Narsha suggested and immediately went to hold onto Chang Min’s arm.
“Ya! That’s not fair! How can you just choose immediately after giving the suggestion. Let’s draw lots!”
Everyone knew that Chang Min was well-known for his good cooking skills. And other than Ga-In and MiRyo, JeA and Narsha were hopeless at cooking. The other 2AM members might be more hindrance than help.
“Ok! Let’s draw lots! Kwon and Ga-In will be a pair so they don’t have to draw lots.”
So the rest of the members drew lots and in the end, they ended with these pairings:
Narsha and Seul Ong
“Narsha noona, what are we going to do? Do you know how to cook?”
Seul Ong knew he had gotten the worst lot since Narsha didn’t know how to cook and he knew nothing about cooking either.
“No! What are we going to do?!!”
“Alright! Let’s set off once we have decided on the dish to cook. The budget for each dish is 50,000 won so you cannot buy ingredients that are too expensive and you only have 1 hour to prepare and cook the dish.”
“JeA noona, let’s make dumplings with chicken broth.”
“Alright! I’d trust you, you just let me know what I can help you with.”
“Ok, let’s go!”
“Jin Woonie, what do you want to eat?”
“MiRyo noona, let’s make kimbap! 5 different types!”
“Alright, that seemed easy enough. Let’s go!”
“Kwon-ah, let’s make caramelised sweet potato and ddeotbokki!”
“Yeo-bo~ You can read my mind! I have been craving for those two dishes for a long time!”
“Seul Ong oppa, Narsha unnie, what are you going to cook?”
Narsha turned to look at Seul Ong with wide-open eyes.
“Ya~ Im Seul…”
“I just learnt how to cook the dish the other day from my mother. You are going to be surprised by my cooking ability! Narsha noona, let’s go!”
Without a second word, Seul Ong grabbed hold of Narsha’s hand and led her out of the apartment. Kwon and Ga-In looked at the two of them as they walked down the corridor.
“He’s going to buy it from the restaurant selling Chinese food.”
“Yup~ He forgot that we are his members and we knew that he had not gone home for quite a while now. Aigoo~ Sometimes, I don’t know what to do with him too.”
“You don’t have to do anything. Half the fun is in watching him shooting himself in the foot. I want to see how he’s going to explain how fast he got the food cooked to the others. Anyway, let’s go and get our own ingredients and start on the dishes.”
Ga-In wrapped a scarf around her neck and made sure that it was covering her face. Kwon did the same thing and put on a pair of glasses. They walked out of the apartment hand-in-hand. But the moment they reached the streets, they kept a safe distance from each other. The memory of today’s event was still flashing in their head and they remembered JYP’s ‘reminder’ not to let their relationship be exposed. They knew they have to be careful no matter how much they wanted to hold each other’s hands.
The other pairs were very smart to split up their shopping list so that they won’t be seen at the same supermarket together. But they agreed to meet back at the apartment at a specific time. Kwon and Ga-In realised that they couldn’t stay out too long since they are the only ones with keys to the apartment.
Narsha and Seul Ong went off in the direction where the restaurants were gathered. Narsha still didn’t know what Seul Ong had in mind.
“Ya! How could you say we were going to cook sweet-and-sour pork? That dish is not easy to cook!”
“Who said anything about cooking it? We are just going to buy ready-made one and pretend that we cooked that.”
“Do you think your members are stupid?”
“No, but who could resist sweet-and-sour pork?”
“That’s true. Since we are going to be at the Chinese restaurant, should we get ja-jang noodles and fried rice?”
“Sure, but not too much. Let’s go get some drinks too!”
“Ah~ You know me too well. Ok, I’d go order the food from the Chinese restaurant. You shall go exhibit your strength by getting the drinks, then make your way back here to carry the food.”
“I feel like a mule being ordered around to carry things!”
Within the hour, everyone was back in the apartment and started on the preparation for their dishes. When Seul Ong and Narsha walked in with the packages from the Chinese restaurants, they were met with loud protest about them cheating and how they lost the competition.
“Alright then, guess Narsha noona and I would have to finish all the food then.”
The rest of them didn’t want to miss out on the sweet-and-sour pork so they gave up their protest almost immediately.
“See, don’t you like to eat something that’s prepared by real chefs rather than two person who doesn’t know how to cook?”
“Well, the two of you can’t escape ‘punishment’ for breaking the rules, so you would have to wash up later after the meal. As the eldest here, I do not want to hear protests.”
JeA’s words were stern and final but inside, she was laughing because she wanted to create an opportunity for Seul Ong and Narsha to be alone. And washing dishes would prevent the others from wanting to go help since no one likes washing up.
Before long, the aroma of food cooking filled the kitchen. Seul Ong and Narsha were engaged in a life-and-death Go-Stop battle and they were going to start fighting over the scoring when Ga-In shouted for the two of them to help set the table since everything is ready.
Though the meal was not perfect but because everyone worked hard to make sure the food was prepared well, they still enjoyed themselves. To them, such times were really the best.
“I think we need to steal the keys and go make copies of it. This is really a great way to hang out. Being with people we like, not having a care in the world, this is good.”
“Yes, maybe we should! Jo Kwon, hand over the keys right now!”
That set off another round of protest from Kwon but the rest just laughed at how each of the members would go to them and tried to steal the key from Kwon.
In the midst of their merriment, Ga-In didn’t notice that her phone was ringing. The person making the phone call got increasingly anxious. In the end, when he realised that she wasn’t going to pick up the call, he hung up. He quickly sent her a message.
“Son Ga-In ssi, please return my call at your convenience. It’s about your mother. – Park Min Jung.”
