Chapter 22. House (2)
I swallowed reflexively.
“You don’t have to do that….”
Go to the house of the worst villain who will destroy the world. That fact was just confirmed, so would you still like to go?
But when I saw Baek Tae-beom’s face, which looked somewhat sullen, my heart was shaken.
“Are you heading back?”
Lee Myung-won, who was talking to the people in black, approached us again with gloves on and asked.
“We have to go.”
“Wait a minute.”
Lee Myung-won looked through the wallet he took out and held out a business card to me.
[Hansung Group Lee Myung-won]
“Why did you….”
“I don’t know, but my constellation urged me to do this.”
Lee Myung-won put the business card in my hand with a nonchalant face, as if he did not see Baek Tae-beom staring at him from my side.
“What did you do while I was away?”
“You don’t have to say it. I think I know. I have a guess.”
“But I have no regrets saving those people.”
Lee Myung-won looked down at me and spoke, and then turned his back away from us. Baek Tae-beom, who was looking at him with an expressionless face, said lowly.
“…Wait a minute. Did something happen between you two?”
“That can’t be, hyung.”
Baek Tae-beom patted my shoulder with a friendly-looking smile.
“Are you going to my house first?”
Baek Tae-beom smiled as if he was in a good mood.
To my surprise, the house I visited was just an ordinary college student’s house. I thought it would be gloomy because it was the house of the villain, so it felt comical. There was no denying that I was a little disappointed. Because in my head, I thought that Baek Tae-beom was raising some kind of monster.
I awkwardly stood in the middle of the living room and looked around.
“Hold on, Hyung.”
Baek Tae-beom went into the room, took some of his clothes and a towel, and gave it to me.
“You can go and wash up first.”
“Is that alright?”
Baek Tae-beom slowly lowered his eyes.
“Today, because of my stubbornness, we went into the dungeon together. You shouldn’t have gone with me.”
“Uh… As a result, you saved another person. That’s fine, isn’t it?”
“But Hyung also got hurt.”
Baek Tae-beom felt the back of my hand as he held the clothes. After feeling a stinging sensation, I recalled the memory as I went through the passageway.
Is this really enough to say that I was hurt?
“Your body hasn’t healed yet.”
No, I’m already in good health.
It’s been a long time since I got pretty healthy. Maybe it’s because I am a constellation, but when I slept, my injuries seemed to heal faster.
I turned my eyes away from the awkwardness.
“…Okay. You can go wash up first.”
I was pushed into the bathroom. I took off my wet clothes and sighed as I turned on the water. It didn’t take long for me to wash up and come out.
The only problem was the clothes.
“…What is this.”
Baek Tae-beom’s clothes were too big for me. The end of the trousers were dragging across the floor and the top was so baggy, making it look like it was going to fall off any second. I couldn’t help but feel embarrassed. No matter how tall and big Baek Tae-beom is, how can there be that much of a difference?
“What is it, hyung?”
“The clothes are too big!”
The person on the other side of the door didn’t say anything for a moment, as if embarrassed by what I said, walking back and forth, until he finally walked away from the door.
And then came a light knock.
“I left different clothes outside the door.”
The new clothes Baek Tae-beom brought were a light, short-sleeved shirt, and shorts, which fit quite well.
When I came out without even drying my hair, Baek Tae-beom opened his eyes wide as if surprised. He then slowly looked up and down at me and covered his mouth.
I opened my eyes wide.
“Do you really have to laugh at me.”
“No– I’m not.”
“I’m really not.”
It was obvious when his ears turned red as if he had been holding back his laughter. I snorted.
