Episode 128: A Brief Break (1)
“so. Who is that instructor?”
Jaehyun crossed his arms and answered Ahn Hoyeon’s question.
“Instructor Kim Ji-yeon. I’m a rookie instructor in the magic world. By the way, a spy from the Radar Management Headquarters.”
Kim Yoo-jung was surprised and asked. Jaehyun calmly nodded her head.
“okay. During the mock dungeon incident, I thought it was strange to take care of the cadets unbecoming Gu Jain’s henchman… … As expected, there was a point of contact with the radar management headquarters.”
Saying that, Jaehyun briefly recalled the past.
The incident happened a few days ago. Return to the first encounter with the Radar Management Headquarters.
[Who do you plan to appoint as the new president of Milles Academy?]
At that time, Yoo Sung-eun, who met Song Ji-seok, asked:
Song Ji-seok answered her question with his white teeth exposed.
[Don’t worry. That part has already been thought of. Tell them to come in.]
A presence that came with a voice.
Jaehyun was quite surprised when he saw her.
[…] … uh? Ki, Instructor Kim Ji-yeon?]
The person Song Ji-seok singled out as the new chairman of Miles was none other than Kim Ji-yeon.
At the time of the mock dungeon incident the other day.
The person who led the new cadets, and the person who called Jae-hyeon after the theme dungeon and tried to find out the truth of the day.
In fact, at first, Jaehyun thought she was Gu Jain’s henchman.
But in the end it wasn’t.
Rather than being Gu Ja-in’s confidant, Kim Ji-yeon was a spy dispatched by the Radar Management Headquarters to uncover Koo Ja-in’s corruption.
Jaehyun was satisfied with the choice of Radar Management Headquarters.
Yeonhwa’s dominance over Miles is a bad picture from the outside.
Since Yeon-hwa could be framed for expelling Gu Ja-in to satisfy her own self-interest, she needed to step back and take what she wanted.
‘Rather, it would be nice if the Radar Management Headquarters would step in and take care of the dirty work.’
Instructor Kim Ji-yeon’s age was not a big problem.
In the first place, it was because it hadn’t been decades since the job of radar was on the rise, and most of the people who sat in key government positions were young.
‘Well, anyway, Chairman Kim Ji-yeon is just a scarecrow temporarily dispatched by the Radar Management Headquarters.’
On the day of the story, the person himself said the same.
[I’m only serving as the interim chairman, so I don’t have much practical authority… …
Still, thank you.]
In the future, Miles Academy was no different from being in his hands.
Jiyeon Kim. She belongs to the Radar Management Headquarters. Inevitably, it is a position that has no choice but to notice Jaehyun. She had no reason for Jaehyun not to take advantage of this.
“No matter what, to be the chairman of Milles in his twenties. That’s great.”
Ahn Ho-yeon crossed his arms and nodded.
“Well, all the other instructors were subject to water changes. Instructor Kim Ji-yeon was the only one who didn’t come out after robbing. She belongs to headquarters, so she has something to trust.”
Others also agreed with Jaehyun’s words.
Kim Ji-yeon on the podium lightly greeted the cadets.
“hello. This is Instructor Kim Ji-yeon, who has been newly appointed as the interim chairman. She is lacking, but please take good care of her.”
Jaehyun and his colleagues went back to the dormitory after listening to her short speech.
It was to soothe the tired body and take a break.
‘Certainly, there is quite a bit of fatigue in the body. I need to rest now.’
Jaehyun had a very tight schedule for a while.
He set up an outpost for Gu Jain’s downfall, made a plan, and put it into action.
Not only that, but also personal growth and the supply and demand of necessary items.
Jaehyun has come this far by achieving all the goals he had set.
He wasn’t satisfied yet.
‘The future is more important.’
After taking a deep breath, we headed to the hotel.
It was to plan for the next.
* * *
Two weeks from the next day was a rest period for Miles Academy.
after the change of the chairman.
It was because the academy also needed time to enter a stable period.
Thanks to this, Jaehyun and his party got a fairly long break after a while.
“It’s been a really long time since I rested… … .”
Jaehyun muttered with a blank expression.
It’s not that it’s not, but when I think about it, it’s been a long time since I’ve had a break.
The last time I took a break… … Maybe it was the day before the entrance exam?
“It is a very sad life… … .”
That time when Jaehyun was lying on the bed complaining.
Suddenly, there was a knock on the door.
“what? from morning.”
I narrowed my eyes and looked at my watch. The current time is nine o’clock in the morning.
I’ve never had a delivery service, and I don’t remember room service.
No one will come… … .
‘It doesn’t exist.’
A sigh escaped Jaehyun’s mouth.
“He’s the only one who’ll suddenly attack at this hour.”
“hey! Can’t you open the door sooner?!”
A distinctive, clear voice coming from outside. It was Kim Yoo-jung.
Jaehyun sighed and said, “Let the ground go down again.”
“Wait a minute. I’ll put on some clothes and go out.”
After replying appropriately, he put on his coat and opened the door.
When we went outside, everyone in the party, except for Seo Ah-hyun, was huddled together.
Kim Yoo-jung looked up at Jae-hyun with her eyes wide open and said.
“Didn’t you forget your promise? After the midterm exam, we all decided to go to karaoke together.”
Jaehyun murmured, “Did something like that happen?” and then parted his lips.
“Well, now that I think about it, I think I remember… … .”
“You are lying.”
Kim Yoo-jung laughed and said.
As expected, like a childhood friend, he seemed to see through Jaehyun’s lies right away.
Amazing accuracy that makes you wonder if you’ve even used a skill.
Jaehyun looked back at the memory with admiration, and finally recalled the memory.
‘… … right. I promised you before the midterm exam.’
before taking the midterm exam. It was a story when I was taking care of Ahn Ho-yeon and Seo E-na’s theory class.
At that time, I remembered that Kim Yoo-jung had to ‘shoot karaoke’ as a condition for teaching me to study for the exam.
“don’t worry! I made a reservation for the best karaoke room on the premises.”
Ahn Ho-yeon raised his thumb and said. Lee Jae-sang also nodded his head at the same time.
Jaehyun scratched his head and said in a slightly annoyed voice.
“okay. i will go Will you wait in the lobby below? When they came rushing in… … Could you say something in advance?”
“I sent you a text, but you didn’t see it? And will it be expensive again? Since when did I contact you and come to you? Oh right. Is there anything to drink inside?”
When Kim Yoo-jung came inside, speaking confidently, Jae-hyun was dumbfounded for a moment and couldn’t answer.
After a while. Jaehyun, who suddenly came to his senses, shouted incredulously.
“Then, check it out from now on! hey! wait for a sec! Where are you coming in! Aren’t you leaving right now!?”
When Kim Yoo-jung entered the house first, the rest of the group secretly watched Jae-hyun.
“… … Excuse me.”
“Mimi, I’m sorry!”
I took off my shoes and ran inside.
Jaehyun felt his head throb.
The party was already searching through Jaehyun’s refrigerator, bed room, and wardrobe.
Eventually, he gave up taking a shower and quickly changed his clothes.
‘Those… … I will definitely take revenge.’
* * *
Jaehyun, who quickly changed his clothes, was led by them to the Milles premises. He arrived at the high-tech (?) karaoke room.
After a while.
“It’s late this night↗ if you don’t mind↘”
“… … .”
“… … .”
“… … .”
There was a deep silence in the room where Jaehyun and the others entered.
An unknown sound, whether it was a song or a high-pitched voice, echoed from the speaker.
While no one was able to open their mouths easily, a muffled sound came from the hallway.
“Hey, fuck. I was startled What kind of songs are all these bastards singing like that?!”
“A guy like that should be banned from karaoke. after… … .”
“The pitch… … He’s not a real person.”
“Tsk, seeing you sing like me, your face must be ugly at first glance.”
Kim Yoo-jung looked around and quickly drew the curtains so that she could not see inside.
It’s because it’s difficult to sell even one’s own face thanks to the song that was leaking from inside.
“… … Jaehyun is a human too… .”
Seo Ina, who was listening to the song, murmured softly.
Ahn Ho-yeon also nodded in agreement.
“okay. Also, not everyone can be perfect. He took away his cooking skills and singing from Jaehyun. Cancer, after all, the world is still worth living in.”
Kim Yoo-jung laughed and intervened in the conversation between the two.
“Originally, his songs are messed up. When I was in middle school, I was scouted for joining a band club thanks to my face, but the manager threw me out first after hearing the song.”
“Why why why, why… … Me, I’m fine, I guess… … .”
When Lee Jae-sang spoke in a crawling voice, Kim Yoo-jung became furious.
“My brother is too generous, so it’s Tal. How can he sing so well?”
“Hyung, no matter what, this is a bit… … .”
When Ho-yeon Ahn spoke with disgust, Lee Jae-sang quickly became sullen.
For reference, Kim Yoo-jung and Ahn Ho-yeon were pretty good at singing.
I’m at the level of a singer, I’m a non-regular person, well, if not to that extent, at least it wasn’t to the point where I was told that I couldn’t sing anywhere. Lee Jae-sang passed because he did not enjoy singing.
after the song is over. Jaehyun wiped the sweat with a satisfied face.
Kim Yoo-jung and Ahn Ho-yeon were sweeping their hearts as if they were glad that the song was over.
‘I will never make Min Jae-hyun sing again.’
‘I shouldn’t make Jaehyun sing from now on.’
The two were thinking about the same thing.
“Who is next?”
When Jaehyun asked the group, Seo Ina raised her hand in a hesitant voice.
“… … it’s me.”
“Come on, Mike.”
Jaehyun held out the microphone to Seo Ina.
Seo Eana quickly reached out to grab the microphone Jaehyun handed her.
Then, for a moment, the hands of the two touched.
“… … oh!”
The moment the microphone was about to fall to the floor with Seo In-na’s startled voice, Jaehyun quickly grabbed her hand along with the microphone.
“I think you also resemble Kim Yoo-jung. Why are you clinging around?”
Jaehyun said that and put the microphone in Seo Ina’s hand.
At that moment, Seo Ina felt her heart beating fast and repeating itself.
Heat rose up in my face, and I involuntarily bent forward slightly.
“what’s the matter. Are you sick?”
When Jaehyun asked, Seo Ina shook her head and looked at his face for a moment.
“… … are you okay. Thanks for catching me.”
Soon after, the prelude sounded, and Seo Ina looked around at the party and spoke softly.
“… … I’m not that good at singing, so don’t expect it.”
“no way. I also heard Min Jaehyun’s song. Will the eardrums you’ve been listening to be washed away?”
When Kim Yu-jung trembled, Jae-hyun narrowed her eyebrows.
“Are you talking too harshly? If you don’t know, it’s not that I can’t sing, it’s that you don’t have ears to hear. Is it enough for me to listen?
is not it. Hoyeonah?”
“uh? uh, uh… … .”
Ahn Ho-yeon hesitated at Jae-hyun’s words and turned his head away.
Jaehyun shook his head as if he couldn’t understand, and soon moved his gaze to Seo Ina.
‘by the way. Before the return, there were only a handful of people who had heard Ina’s voice, but to hear all the songs… … .’
Jaehyun nodded his head, moved again.
‘Even if I can’t sing, I have to clap my hands.’
After thinking so, about 10 seconds later.
Jaehyun couldn’t help but open his mouth at a completely different idea.
“… … what. Why is he so good at singing?”
