I Become a Doting Father 165
I Become a Doting Father chapter 165
The first guest of the housewarming party who finally came to the house.
It was a little early for the scheduled time, but there was no problem at all.
I just finished setting up the table.
“Who came first?”
I approached the intercom right away.
The silhouette of the first customer caught my eye through the interphone screen.
You can’t see the face well, but you can see the long hair. If so, there were only two cases.
“Since there are only two people.”
Seo Ji-hye and Shin Se-yeon were the only female guests who were supposed to come today.
Sieun can’t reach the interphone screen, so let’s make an exception.
And out of the two, who is it?
I got a feeling.
[Opening the door]
Huh? I should have said hello and opened it for you.
As soon as I pressed the door open button, a black screen popped up on the interphone.
This was because the use of interphones was still immature.
You may have been embarrassed because the door opened without saying a word.
“I think so.” Yeondoo, who do you think is here?
Yeondoo is agonizing over it even though there is no clue.
Unfortunately, the bell rang again before Yeondoo’s worries ended.
This time, the bell of the front door rang. Naturally, Yeondoo’s gaze headed toward the door.
When I opened the door, I could see the customer’s face through the gap.
As expected, the prediction was exactly right.
The first guest was none other than Seo Jihye.
She replied with a grin.
“Hello, oppa.” But you’re not surprised at all.
“Huh? Why are you surprised?”
“Actually, I’m jokingly attached to the intercom.”
I didn’t stand on the side.”
I was wondering why you couldn’t see my face. That’s what you intended.
Seo Ji-hye continued with an awkward smile.
“But he said hello like he thought it was me…”
“I knew it.”
In response to my answer, Seo Ji-hye asked back with a surprised look.
“I couldn’t see your face, but I saw that.”
“That thing? What kind of…” Oh, my god!
It was only when she saw me pointing that she uttered a single voice.
It looked like I finally understood the meaning of my words.
The reason for confirming that it was Seo Ji-hye was simple.
“Because I saw a yellow hairpin.”
When we went to the department store together, the hairpin I bought for him
She noticed it was Seo Ji-hye when she saw it stuck in her hair.
I opened my mouth with a smile.
“I guess you like it because you wear it often.” I think I said this before.”
“Yes, I think the color is pretty…”
“That’s a relief.”
It was true that that hairpin looked good on Seo Ji-hye.
In addition, it matched well with the clothes you were wearing.
“It’s a place where we gather with many people.”
It was an outfit that felt more decorated than usual.
By the way, it was impossible to keep it on the shoe rack.
I was trying to guide her inside, but Yeondoo’s voice caught my ear.
Seo Ji-hye, who saw Yeondoo late, opened her mouth.
Seo Ji-hye came into the house as if she were throwing her shoes off.
In the meantime, the trap is that the shoes are neatly placed.
Then she hugged Yeondoo tightly and said.
“How have you been, Yeondoo?”
“Yes! What about you?”
“Of course, I’ve been well.”
Now, even this fierce hug is natural.
It was a relationship between the two that became lovable. | After the affectionate greeting, her body…
He raised something and said.
“So… Am I the first guest?”
“Then can you show me around?”
Holding the envelope tightly in her hand, she said.
I’m sure it’s a housewarming gift, but I don’t think I’ll mention it first.
Instead, I answered the question.
Since I finished setting the table, I was relaxed until the next guest came.
Like that, we got out of front of the entrance and headed for the living room.
At the same time, Seo Ji-hye’s eyes swelled like balloons.
“What is it?”
“What’s all this?” Did you do it all? Awesome!
Instead of answering, I asked back skillfully.
“What do you think Jihye would think?”
She looked at me with a suspicious look.
In fact, the reason why I didn’t bring up the semi-cooked food was simple.
“Because I’m curious.”
I’ll tell you, but I was going to reveal all of the semi-cooked food menu during the meal.
However, before that, I wanted to see the reactions of the customers who ate the food.
To be exact, the reaction when I ate the menu I made.
“Is it a skill that I am not ashamed to say that I am Chef Lee Ho-yeon’s student?”
I wanted to hear an objective review of the dish I made.
After that, it was not too late to reveal the semi-cooked food menu.
Therefore, now I have no choice but to pass by like this.
Fortunately, Seo Ji-hye did not ask more about food.
I don’t know if you noticed my intention or if there’s another reason.
“Wow, but you decorated it really well…”
“Yes, it’s really neat and modern.” Did you decorate it all?”
Unlike the previous question, he nodded without hesitation this time. Following the living room, what I am showing now was my room.
It could be said that it was a space decorated entirely according to my taste. Seo Ji-hye continued to talk while staring into the room.
“I want to have a room like this…”
“Haha, isn’t it too dark for Jihye to live?”
“Is that so?”
“It’s a bit brighter.”
Well, it was just an appetizer so far.
It was now time to show the highlight of Yeondoo’s room.
But then the bell rang again.
I ran right away and checked the interphone screen.
Coincidentally, this guest was Shin Se-yeon.
Seo Ji-hye, who followed, opened her mouth.
“Yes, Yeondoo’s friend Sieun and Seyeon’s mother.” |
“Oh, I went to a water park with Children’s Grand Park”.
Come to think of it, Seo Ji-hye talked about it as if she were disappointed at the water park.
I didn’t tell you to go with me. Soon after, the bell in the front door…
I got it.
“Welcome. Hi, Sieun”.
Following Sieun’s chic greeting, Shin Se-yeon also smiled and said.
“As I said before, congratulations officially.” Moving.”
“Haha, thank you.”
Yeondoo and Sieun, who are always welcoming as always.
In the meantime, I decided to introduce Seo Ji-hye to Shin Se-yeon. | Since it’s our first time meeting, I’ll act as a bridge.
I needed to do it for you.
“This is Jihye.” Like I said before.”
Shin Se-yeon first gave a little awkward greeting.
“Hello, I’ve heard a lot about you.” I’m Shin Seyeon!
Shin Se-yeon, who says that and reaches out carefully.
Seo Ji-hye shyly held hands and returned the greeting.
“I’ve heard a lot from Joo Won, too. “My name is Seo Jihye…”
“Oh, that… Yes, nice to meet you…”
“Nice to meet you, too…”
What is this awkwardness, I feel awkward looking at it.
As I said before, I was not resistant to this atmosphere.
I didn’t have the ability to lighten the mood.
“At times like this, that person needs to be there.”
It was a moment when I suddenly missed Dong-gun. It’s funny, but should I say that Donggeon is needed?
Anyway, for now, I was the only one who could play that role.
Theoretically, the most effective way to do this was to change the subject.
Surprised by the sudden call, she replied.
“Yes, yes, Mr. Joowon!”
“Before Seyeon and Sieun came, I was showing Jihye around the room. Do you want to watch it with me if it’s okay?
“Oh! Then I’d like to…”
It was an awkward conversation, but anyway, it was successful to change the atmosphere.
So I took the lead toward Yeondoo’s room.
Of course, I could see the table set up on the way.
Shin Se-yeon, who naturally followed, opened her mouth.
“That’s right, sister. It’s really amazing.
Seo Ji-hye didn’t miss it and responded.
Good job. The best way to get close is to form a consensus.
Even the title naturally called her sister, eliminating the sense of distance.
But why am I analyzing this? Anyway, it was clear that it was an advanced situation.
“Yes, that’s awesome. “No way…”
“You’re curious if Joowon did it all, right?”
Wisdom continued to speak toward Shin Se-yeon, who nodded.
“I asked him, but he avoided answering. “It feels like there’s a secret hidden.”
This time, Seo Ji-hye was using a high-level speech method that eliminated awkwardness by talking about a third party.
It takes a little while for the third party to be me.
Anyway, it was fortunate that Seo Ji-hye was more friendly than I thought.
99% of them got close to each other at convenience stores thanks to Seo Ji-hye.
As a result, the effect of bringing up my story was outstanding. Because Shin Se-yeon replied with a smile at Seo Ji-hye’s words.
“Really? I feel like I know the secret”.
“Oh, really? I have no idea… What is it?
“I won’t comment for you”.
“Oh, you’re too mean”.
They even exchanged jokes.
I didn’t know my story would have such a big effect.
If this helped ease the awkwardness, it could have been a topic of conversation.
It’s not like I’m being talked about behind my back.
Looking at the situation, I opened my mouth.
“This is Yeondoo’s room.”
Seo Ji-hye said with sparkling eyes.
“I’m curious. I just saw Joo Won’s room.”
“Really? How was it?”
She replied with a thumbs up.
“It was really the best.” Neat and cozy.
“It was really pretty just looking at the living room.”
“So I’m looking forward to it even more.” What about Yeondoo’s room?”
The video posted on YouTube earlier showed Yeondoo’s room.
It was a video of Yeondoo’s reaction from what I decorated.
Seeing the conversation, the two didn’t seem to have watched the video yet.
“That’s a relief.”
It wouldn’t have been fun to introduce it if I had seen it in advance.
I smiled and said to Yeondoo standing behind me.
“Yeondoo, will you introduce it?”
“Because it’s Yeondoo’s room.”
With an excited look, Yeondoo headed in front of the door.
He looked excited to introduce a pretty room.
Yeondoo is looking at the doorknob.
I reached out my hand.
The door opened and I could see the inside of the room.
At the same time, three people, except me and Yeondoo, opened their mouths.
After some silence, Shin Se-yeon brought it up.
“Did you decorate it?”
“… It’s so pretty. Right, Sieun?”
Sieun nodded up and down silently.
Seo Ji-hye belatedly expressed her appreciation.
“The colors are so pretty.”
“It’s like a fairy tale room”.
From a standpoint of decorating, I felt awkward for no reason at the high praise.
But if you ask me if I don’t like it, it’s the complete opposite.
Seo Ji-hye said with a big smile.
“Yeon-du is lucky.”
“I got this pretty room…”
“Yes, Joa…” My dad made it for me.
Yeondoo smiles and looks up at me after saying that.
Once again, I thought it was a good thing I worked hard to decorate the room.
Just being able to see the happiest smile in the world.
One after another, housewarming guests began to arrive.
“Are you here, DONG GEON?”
“Yes, I brought my subordinates. Loyalty!”
Today, Dong-gun was also equipped with military-style greetings.
Juyeon’s furious voice continued next to him.
“Who’s your servant, idiot?”
Seeing these two bickering after a long time, I couldn’t help but smiling.
Dong-gun continued to talk without pretending to hear.
Oh, you came first. And…
His eyes are swollen. The gaze was none other than directed at Seo Ji-hye.
“Say hi. I told you before, right?”
“Wow, Haengnim is really…”
“I think there are only beautiful people around me.
It wasn’t wrong. Both Shin Se-yeon and Seo Ji-hye are quite beautiful.
Although they are beautiful women with completely different feelings.
Dong-gun greeted Seo Ji-hye with a shy expression.
“Let me say hi to you”. I’m Jo Donggun, the little brother that Joowon loves the most!
“Nice to meet you…”
“Yes! I look forward to your kind cooperation!”
Next to him, Juyeon said as if he was pathetic.
“You’re uncomfortable, silly.”
“What are you talking about? It was the most comfortable greeting in the world.”
Subsequently, Beomjae, Juyeon, and Yerim also exchanged greetings with Seo Ji-hye.
It was my friends who arrived next.
“Oh, I’ll get the gift first. FYI,
“We are one, so we have one gift.”
In the meantime, the gift that Sunghyun gave me full of toilet paper was a roll of toilet paper.
I bought it not too long ago, but these insensitive kids.
I answered by putting the tissue down in the corner.
“What’s this boring gift?”
“Wow… Did you just say that it’s boring to have a housewarming gift?” It’s a gift that we bought after much consideration. “I’m disappointed that you didn’t see me like that, Joowon”.
“Let’s get rid of the skits that don’t even work.”
They said there was only one gift, but each person was holding an envelope.
Yoon-woo smiled at my question and answered.
“Of course, it’s Yeondoo’s present.”
“Yes, only one gift and Yeondoo’s gift is strong.”
Yoon Woo, who says that and raises three fingers.
The two guys are giggling next to each other.
The absurd laughter came out.
“Just leave as you are.”
“What’s wrong with you?”
They took off their shoes at the speed of light and came in.
I heard a sound of laughing behind me and turned around, and it was Seo Ji-hye’s laughter. I asked with a strange look.
“What’s wrong, Jihye?”
“It’s my first time seeing you.”
“Your way of speaking.”
Definitely, the way I talk to my friends is different from usual.
Shin Seyeon smiled and responded.
“It’s my first time hearing it, too.”
Meanwhile, the three looked puzzled when they saw Jihye and Seyeon.
Come to think of it, I didn’t tell them exactly about the housewarming guests.
I just said I’d come recklessly, so I told you to.
“Say hi. This is…”.
They are mean, but I have no choice but to introduce them.
That’s how I introduced my friends. Jihye, Seyeon, and high school students.
“It’s already complicated.”
The living room was noisy because of the guests.
And now there were only two remaining guests.
Hong Soo Chan and Woo Young.
The two were supposed to come together. Since the teacher decided to pick Woo Young up and bring him.
Soon after, the last guest arrived.
“Are you here?”
“Okay, are we the last?”
“I came late on purpose”.
“Why? Because you’re picking Woo Young up”.
“No, since I got the last text message,
“Oh, my. Teacher!” The order doesn’t mean anything.”
When I asked how many times I sent it, he answered the truth, but he still does this.
Perhaps because he grew older, he was a teacher who held grudges beyond imagination.
Of course, I don’t want to talk about age,
“It’s okay, dude.”
Customers listening from behind look like they don’t understand at all.
It’s a problem that doesn’t have to be understood.
“Okay. How have you been, Woo Young?”
I exchanged greetings with Woo-young late.
Meanwhile, Hong Soo-chan was reunited with his old disciples.
“Hey, you’re not loyal.
“What’s wrong with you, teacher?”
“Tsk, don’t even call me a teacher!” Kite
You guys don’t even play rock.”
“Hey, we looked it up on Teacher’s Day. “More than Joowon who’s been underwater for 6 years…”
“Hey, sit down. Hurry up!”
I was in a hurry to interrupt and say.
This is why I hesitated to call these guys.
Because they know too much about me.
I managed to get them seated.
And all the rest of the guests sat face to face on the table.
Yeondoo sat next to me.
“Thank you all for coming.”
Finally, the house succeeded in delivering a comment like that.
Several conversations came and went, and Hong Soo-chan spoke.
“But these foods are made by Joo Won.”
When the meal was about to start in earnest.
Shin Se-yeon, sitting diagonally, held the envelope in her hand.
“Excuse me… I haven’t given you the present yet.”
“Oh, a gift?”
Next to him, Dong-gun and his friends poured out reactions.
“Oh, is it the beginning of the gift ceremony?”
“Will there be a gift that goes beyond our roll of toilet paper?”
“The corners of Joo Won’s mouth go up, right?” You’re trying to get a supplement that you don’t have, right?
“Shh, be quiet!”
Listening to the guys, I feel like my expression is bothering me.
It feels like the corners of my mouth are really flinching.
Indeed, they are those who are well versed in longing.
Fortunately, Shin Se-yeon presented a gift without delay.
Upon receiving the envelope, I said.
“May I open it now?”
“Yes, open it.”
Customers’ attention was focused. Yeondoo next to me is also looking at me with a pounding expression.
As expected, opening a gift is always nerve-racking.
I immediately took out the contents of the envelope.
At the same time, exclamations popped out from here and there.
It was a gift from Shin Se-yeon that surprised everyone.
