Big Life - Chapter 84
-It’s all because of you, Writer Ha ^^ You should eat lunch well and be careful of the cold. Contact me anytime you have anything going on. Fighting!
Jaegun checked the message and put his phone back in his pocket.
It was the hospital. His sister went and his mom had work so he was here since morning.
‘It’s time to eat.
Jaegun stood up. He was writing. His face was confused. He had way too many things he didn’t know.
‘I don’t know anything…’
Mystery. It might have been a mistake to write mystery.
Crime, and police. He didn’t know anything in that section.
It was hard to write about something he didn’t know about. It was just so uninteresting even as he looked at it.
‘How do I fix this? I should ask the local police station? Or somewhere else?
When he went back to the room, his dad was already eating.
Jaegun quickly went over.
“I’m sorry, I was going to eat.
“Does it get any better if you bring it?”
“Eat quickly before it cools.”
“What about you?”
“I got a hamburger and ramen/”
Sukjae wrinkled his face.
“You should eat. What is that? “
“I’ve eaten too much. I’ll come back quickly.”
Jaegun quickly went over to the other room and poured hot water on the ramen.
His dad hadn’t eaten at all.
“Why are you not eating?”
“I’ going to.”
He finally picked up his spoon.
Jaegun realized that his dad wanted to eat with him. He smiled as he sat next to him
“Is it not going well?”
His dad asked suddenly.
Jaegun lifted his head as he was eating.
How did he know?
What is it?”
“Ah, it’s a mystery.”
“Mystery? Are you writing that?”
“I’m challenging myself.”
Sukjae’s face was filled with respect for a split second.
But Jaegun didn’t notice it because it was so quick
Sukaje continued calmly.
“What is it about?”
“Hm. It's about... One girl goes to a MT and she was sexually assaulted. And then she commits suicide…”
Jaegun quickly said/
Sukaje was listening. It was a conversation as a reader not as a father.
“...but there’s so many things. I don’t know about law. And it’s weird to keep looking it up. And there’s so many questions.”
“I want to meet someone in this section, but there isn’t anyone. I’m going to go to a local police station. Maybe the officers would help me a bit if I bought them something.”
Jaegun said jokingly. Sukjae smiled very slightly.
“Wow, You are eating nicely together?”
Myungja came in the room smiling. Sukaje, embarassed, waved Jaegun off.
“You should go.”
“I can stay.”
“Ah, just leave. It’s weird with you here.”
“Ok. Then I’ll come back.”
“Don’t come back.”
Jaegun left the room
Sukjae quickly picked up his phone after his son left and looked at his contact list.
He wanted to help his son write. Even if he wanted to, there was no way to help. But now, Sukjae had an answer to that.
Sukaje called when he found the number. And then after a ring, his college colleague picked up.
-Who is this? Isn’t this Ha Sukaje!
“Are you comfortable now. Retired and all.
-Comfortable? I have to go work and stuff. It’s so weird being stuck at home after I’ve worked for so long. It’s so boring. Ahhhhh!
“Haha, I see. That’s weird.”
-Whatever, when are we going to have a drink? Right?
Sukaje coughed slightly and ignoring the glance from Myungja, he said to his phone.
“Hey, Can you help my son?”
