sues when I just thought about myself either.’ When Maru was working hard for his family’s safety and his own success, he didn’t even have the time to think about things like this.
With more time on his hands now, his mind drifted towards more ‘useless’ subjects.
Sadly, they weren’t issues he could just ignore either.
He knew god existed and he knew that this god cared about stuff like this.
He didn’t want to get punished after death for screwing over other people’s lives.
This was the reason why Maru started looking into churches and temples as of late.
He used to believe that religion was a product of a lack of knowledge, but now that he knew god did exist… Should he just worship all of the gods he could find? “Hah.” He didn’t know what to do, he was kind of amazed that he was able to go through high school without thinking in his past life.
Maru grabbed his book, shedding away all other thoughts.
‘Twilight Struggles’.
Reading it made him distrust humans quite a bit, which was annoying, but at least the book provided something to focus on.
Just as he opened the first page of the book, he heard the door to his room open.
Come to think of it, it was dinnertime.
His parents went down south to commemorate his maternal grandmother’s death.
They said they’d come back in the morning, so dinner was up to the two of them.
“I’ll cook some meat for you, so just hold on.” That was when Maru remembered the pork belly inside his bag.
If he washes the lettuce and perilla leaves and makes doenjang soup… “Alright, I’ll leave it to you, then.” The voice that came from behind him wasn’t Bada’s, Maru turned around with a surprised look.
Gray shirt and jeans, it was ‘her’.
Maru blinked a few times.
Was he dreaming? What was happening? “What are you doing? Bada’s hungry, you know.” “Brooo! Meat! Meat!” He could hear Bada outside, he wasn’t dreaming.
He got up from his chair awkwardly, she stepped towards him lightly.
“Why are you looking so dumb?” “This is our house, right?” “Yeah.” “So why…” “Broo! Meat!” Bada’s voice was getting louder by the second.
For now, he walked out to the kitchen with her.
What in the world was happening? She was acting like she totally owned the place.
“I asked her to come.” Bada’s explanation was all he needed to understand, he still didn’t get it though.
Were these two always this close? They were acting practically like sisters.
She continued to explain what was happening.
“You remember that fruit basket you gave me?” “Oh, that?” “Mom said it’d be rude to just take something like that without giving anything back.” She pointed her finger towards the sink, there was a pot he hadn’t seen before.
Inside, he found beef rib stew.
“My mom’s really good at making beef ribs.” ‘Ah, I know.’ Maru was still in a state of shock.
He wanted to ask a lot more questions, but for now, he started grilling meat for his hungry sister.
“You came to give us that? How did you know I even lived here?” “I was calling Bada.
She asked me to come, so I did.” “Mom and dad aren’t here, so I told her to come.
I did a good job, right?” His sister grinned playfully.
Since when was the girl this cute? He should really increase her allowance.
With that thought in mind, he warmed up some rice and set the soup to boil.
“You can cook?” “Bro’s surprisingly good at cooking.” “That’s definitely a surprise.” The two girls were whispering behind him, Maru shrugged as he seasoned the soup to taste.
It was savory and salty, just as he liked it.
He set up the table with the sizzling meat and the bubbling soup.
“Thanks for the meal.” She smiled brightly after trying a spoon of the soup, Maru watched her eat silently for a second.
It reminded him of their newly wed days.
There were times when she asked him to feed her after a morning shoot.
Whenever that happened, Maru just got her a simple toast with some salad.
“What are you looking at? Eat.” Bada was staring at him, Maru nodded as he grabbed his spoon.

* * * “I’ll take care of the dishes.” “You’re our guest, so no way.
Go play with Bada.” She took a look back, Bada was sitting in front of the television munching on some snacks.
“It’s a bit late, by the way.
Don’t you need to go back?” She looked at the clock at Maru’s words, it was a little over seven.
“It was an early dinner.
I’m fine.” “Call your mom, then.
Tell her that you ate and you’ll be going back soon.” Maru sounded a lot like a mother, she stuck her tongue at the boy before walking over to Bada.
“Sis.” “Hmm?” “Why are you going out with my brother?” “You know, I don’t really know how I should respond to that.” Why date? Well, because they liked each other.
Why do they like each other? Well… ‘I guess it’s because he was so direct.’ He did come over to her house out of nowhere in winter to confess.
He was very rude and irresponsible when he did it, but she didn’t hate that.
What if someone other than him did the same thing? She might’ve rejected him on the spot.
“You’re going to get fat,” Maru said, walking towards the two of them.
Bada glared back at him, shouting ‘I’m not gonna get fat!’ She had to suppress laughter.
These two were on very good terms, clearly.
“Come to think of it, I’m getting in the way of you two.” Bada looked at the two of them with a grin, she couldn’t say anything from the sudden jab.
“If you know, then step outside for a bit.
Care to buy us drinks?” Maru asked.
“Of course.” She could only watch as Bada quickly slipped away with Maru’s money.
“You guys get along really well.” “Money tends to solve most issues.” Maru sat down next to her with mysterious words.
“Did you call your mom?” “Ugh, don’t worry about it.” “Do it before she gets worried.
Any parent would get worried when their grown daughter goes to a boy’s home.” “Fine, fine.
You’re like an old lady, seriously.” “You try getting old too.
You’ll become like this in an instant.” “You know we’re the same age, right?” She took out her phone with a slight grin.
