Chapter 23. Apollo (1)
“Actually, those are the clothes I wore in my freshman year of high school.”
“… In your first year of high school?”
“How tall are you now?”
“Probably one hundred and ninety…”
I cut off an incredibly terrifying number that was about to come out of his mouth.
So, how many centimeters are you from me? There was a reason why I had to look up from the first time I met him. No wonder my neck hurts whenever we meet.
‘No, let’s stop thinking about it.’
Even if you’re the novel’s main character, I had to stop that.
Come to think of it, there was a description that the main character, Kang Si-hoo, was also taller than 190cm. I remember that even though he is the opposite of Baek Tae-beom’s image, he was the same height as him.
You get all the height yourself.
“Hyung, please sit down. Are you hungry?”
“I’m not hungry.”
I spoke calmly and walked around the room. Baek Tae-beom followed me with a look of restlessness and asked me this and that. It felt like a dog following its owner, and I swallowed the laughter that was about to pop out of me.
“How about hot tea? Do you want some snacks?”
“Then, shall we go out and buy something? Is there anything you want to eat?”
I went inside the room and looked at the bed. On the bed, cute dolls were arranged in a row and stood like soldiers.
“Can I sit down?”
“Ah, yes. Please sit.”
As I sat down on the bed, Baek Tae-beom stood in front of me and looked down at me. He was so tall that I had to tilt my head and look up, and it felt like my neck was going to break. His smooth jawline, protruding neckline, and hands and feet are all big enough to cover me.
The veins on his neck are also noticeably clear and pretty.
I don’t think I’d ever get tired of looking at him, but now was not the time to admire and praise his appearance. I have to talk to him about the battle with Lee Myung-won.
“How was it?”
“That guy, Lee Myung-won.”
Baek Tae-beom, who questioned my sudden words, blinked as he quietly listened to the voice that followed. For a moment, it seemed like his thought circuit stopped like that, but then he murmured in a deep voice.
“No, I think he’s a good person. Are you going to contact him?”
“You should save his contact information just in case you don’t know. But, you two had a strange atmosphere. What happened?”
Baek Tae-beom replied with a smile.
“Nothing happened. We just talked.
“Yes. Ah, Hyung. Your hair isn’t dry yet.”
Baek Tae-beom blatantly changed the subject and sat next to me. The bed naturally tilted over to his side. And guilelessly, my breath became closer.
“Will you turn a little to the side? I’ll dry your hair.”
“Hyung, you will get a cold.”
Baek Tae-beom took the towel from my hand and dabbed the water off my hair. His actions of drying my hair by pressing it with the soft cloth felt quite familiar. His fingertips grazed my ears.
Come to think of it, Baek Tae-beom had a lot of calluses on his hands. Maybe it’s because he’s been working part-time ever since he was little to pay for his brother’s hospital bills.
The back of my neck felt prickly, as Baek Tae-beom’s breath seemed to reach me. A slightly warmer than usual, yet calming breath.
What is Baek Tae-beom thinking?
[Your contractor expresses his affection towards you.]
Without saying anything, I grabbed Baek Tae-beom’s hand and lowered it. It’s so cute to see him with his eyes wide open. Like an obedient puppy, with soft curved eyes and raised cheeks. I felt my hand touching his tingling as if it was burning.
Letting go of his hand, I hurriedly stood up.
“I have to go.”
“I owe you one. I’ll be heading out.”
I roughly brushed off my wet hair and tried to leave, but Baek Tae-beom caught me.
“Hyung, the clothes.”
“Ah. You can take them….”
“No. I’ll wash them and return them to you.”
Baek Tae-beom smiled softly and replied.
“Then, see you again next time.”
How could you refuse a man who speaks so affectionately with that handsome face? I nodded my head roughly and left the house, leaving Baek Tae-beom behind. And as soon as I found a suitable alleyway, I moved to <Soul’s Sanctuary>, and threw myself on the mattress in front of me. I buried my face in the duvet.
