Bitna hung up and put the phone down.

“He said I can come.”

She was quick to work, and even quicker to think.
She wasn’t that mindful when she talked about the sandwich.
She thought that Bitna would consider Maru and her as just friends without thinking that they had a relationship of a boy and a girl.

“Are you two dating?”

She almost dropped her phone when she said those unexpected words.
She took her phone off her ears in a hurry and asked what she meant by that.
Bitna said that she just speculated; she deduced that they were in a special relationship considering what she had heard from her sister, the way they talked over the phone, as well as her going over to his house with food late at night.
She also said that she was convinced after seeing her reaction after listening to that question.
Bitna soon looked down at her clasped hands before asking if she could go to Maru’s house cautiously.
Gaeul said that she should ask the person in question first and soon received permission to go.

“Sorry I suddenly said I want to go.”

“No, it’s fine.
It doesn’t matter to me at all.
I was going there anyway.
But Bitna, you heard about me and Maru from Yuna?”

“No, my sister never said anything in detail.
She may be a chatterbox, but she’s not someone who carelessly talks about privacy,” Bitna said as she grabbed the seatbelt with her left hand.

“Unni was crying at home.
I asked what was up, and she said that she still felt a little sorry for Gaeul-unni, but it had been resolved and that she was happy.
Unni said that she liked someone she shouldn’t.
Back then, I didn’t know what she meant by that.
But I understood after seeing a call for you from Maru-oppa and your expression, Gaeul-unni.
From what I remember, my sister had a very long first love.
When she cried, her first love came to an end.”

By the time she finished those words, Bitna was holding onto the seatbelt with both of her hands.


Please don’t hate my sister.”

“Bitna, I’ve never hated Yuna.
No, I guess I was jealous of her before, but definitely not now.
She’s a precious friend and a sister of mine.
I will never hate her.”


“Of course!”

“Even though she did something bad?”

Gaeul forgot because she was so good at logical deduction, but Bitna was still young.
She seemed to know the complexity of people loving each other and breaking up but not the fact that the happenings that might happen throughout couldn’t simply be categorized into ‘good’ and ‘bad.’

“She didn’t do anything bad.
Your sister just didn’t know anything.”

“Mom told me that the police wouldn’t be necessary if not knowing about it is an excuse for being innocent.”

“That’s a bit of a different problem, but still, Yuna just liked a person.
Yes, if someone has sinned, it lies with Maru.”

“Maru-oppa? Why?”

How was she supposed to respond to that? The sin of being too charming? The sin of shaking a woman’s heart by being overly kind? Every one of those reasons was hard to say out loud.
Just as she was wondering if she should just gloss things over, she saw Bitna smiling while covering her mouth.
The moment she saw her expression, she thought that she had been one-upped.

“Bitna knows how to tease her unni, huh?”

I thought that my sister knew everything and still did that because she had something bad in her mind.
But you said that she didn’t, so it put me at ease.
But seeing you flustered also made me want to know what would happen next.”

“Looks like I have to get myself together if I want to talk to you next time so that you don’t tease me.”

“I won’t do that from now on.”

“If you want to tease me, then do it any time.
We’re close after all.
Uh, we are close, right?”

“Are you going to be angry if I say no?”

“According to your answer, I’ll decide whether I’ll tickle you or not.
You won’t be able to breathe once I start tickling you on the sides.”

“Then I’ll say we’re close.
I’m really bad at handling people tickling me.”

“I feel like I’m getting duped here, but I’ll let you go this time.”

Bitna let go of her hands holding the seatbelt as though she felt relieved.

“Did you and Maru-oppa start dating when you were in high school?”

“How did you know that?”

“My sister liked Maru-oppa back then.
It happened a long time ago, but I still remember it.
She had me lie so that she could see Maru-oppa.
She said that I wanted to see him.”

“She must have gotten Maru’s number through a certain senior at school.”

“And that was you?”


The smart girl nodded as though she understood everything.

“But why do you want to go to Maru’s house so suddenly?”

“To throw a tantrum.”

“A tantrum?”

“I’ll tell you when we get there, about the things I couldn’t tell you during the day.”
