I Become a Doting Father 22
I Become a Doting Father chapter 22
“Yes, go ahead.”
As soon as I changed my shift, I took a step toward the daycare center.
I was going to pick up Yeondoo right away without stopping by the house today.
That’s how much I want to see Yeondoo.
I mean, it’s amazing.’
Just picking up Yeondoo…
The rush hour has become a lot of fun. Of course, it’s time for most people to get off work.
will be a pleasure.
But I wasn’t before Yeondoo came. It was as painful to get off work as part-time.
First of all, the reason why the part-time job was painful was simple.
‘Because I’m different from Jihye.”
Suddenly, Seo Ji-hye, who worked with me, came to mind.
Alba was simply a good experience for her.
There was a bigger world of universities, and a good experience during vacation to earn pocket money.
A part-time job at a convenience store would have been nothing more or less for her.
But for me, part-time jobs were not experiences but livelihoods.
A living that changes the hour and the hour to make ends meet.
It was just a living that took my humble and meaningless time to get paid that much.
I couldn’t pursue any purpose or value through a convenience store part-time job.
It was him, of course. When my dad passed away, I lost every purpose I had.
The college entrance exam I was preparing for was so easy.
In other words, as I just said, part-time at a convenience store was just to make ends meet.
Ironically, it was no different from the reason why it was hard to get off work.
‘It’ll be repeated tomorrow.’
The daily routine of working part-time just to survive will be repeated tomorrow.
I always left work with that in mind. But not anymore.
Now, there was Yeondoo who would share time with me when I went back after finishing my part-time job.
That fact alone allowed me to leave the office happily.
‘Part-time job, too.’
Thinking about making money not only for me but also for Yeondoo, I could find my own meaning.
Is it because he thinks it’s not worthless at all?
It’s funny. My situation hasn’t changed at all.
In a short period of ten days, Yeon-du seems to have become so precious to me.
As much as I think of Yeondoo.
Am I that precious to Yeondoo?
It occurred to me that it would be great.
* * *
“Oh, you’re here? Yeondoo! Dad’s here.
all of it’s got to all of them’
As soon as the teacher called Yeon-du, Yeon-du showed up.
Then he circled around and checked me and ran.
It’s amazing that such a small kid can run this fast.
Gun. Gun. Gun. It’s like a rabbit compared to an animal.
As I was staring blankly at it, I shouted “Oops”.
“Yeondoo, slow down! Slow down! You’ll be in trouble if you fall while running like that.
But when I said something, Yeondoo was already in my leg.
The way he looked, the corners of his mouth.
I crouched down and hugged Yeondoo. Yeondoo hugged me tightly with her short arms.
“How are you, Yeondoo?”
“Yeah, what about you?”
“Daddy’s been well. Did Yeondoo’s friends play well with her?”
“Did you listen to the teacher?””
Why aren’t you answering this question? Yeondoo can’t answer, but hesitates.
She looked at the teacher.
Did you do something wrong?
“Dad, I don’t know.”
Eventually, Yeondoo voluntarily admitted her mistake.
I don’t know what the hell I did wrong.
Feeling anxious, I asked the standing teacher.
“What happened to Yeondoo??’,
Then she burst into laughter.
answered the question.
“LOL, I can’t stop him.”
“At nap time, Sieun was lying down and whispering with her friend.”
“Oh, Yeondoo didn’t sleep? That’s weird. You must have been sleepy.’
I thought you must have been tired because you slept later than usual yesterday, but it was unexpected.
The teacher went on.
“No, I slept later, but before that,
I’ve heard a little bit of something since you were so excited.
“But how much Yeondoo brags about him…”
“I’m proud of?””
Yeon-du’s cheeks, which hugged me in the teacher’s words, turned red.
But the shame is that I do everything. There’s nothing I can brag about.
I didn’t even ask, but the teacher told me the details.
“My dad is as good as the sky and as good as the earth.
They said I look good, they make pretty things with computers, they take great pictures…… Phew, there are so many that I can’t even say them all. I almost collapsed because you were so cute. Ho-ho.
I also blushed and spoke to Yeondoo for no reason.
“Did you, Yeondoo?”
Yeondoo answered with a nod, perhaps embarrassed.
The day care center teacher smiled and opened his mouth.
“But I think Yeondoo and her father are really affectionate.”
Is that so?”
“Yes, there are quite a few fathers who come to pick up their children, and there’s no one who likes and welcomes them more than Yeondoo. No one misses their dad as much as Yeon Doo. My father’s mouth got stuck in his ears as soon as he saw Yeondoo.”
“Ha ha, I’m embarrassed.
Yeondoo and I seem to be quite affectionate in the eyes of course.
Do we really look like a father and daughter?
It made me feel better to think so.
“Then we’ll be on our way.”
“Yes, I’ll see you tomorrow.〜,’
It was a moment to leave the daycare center like that.
A girl’s voice was heard from the daycare center.
Yeondoo and I looked back at the same time.
Sure enough, a cute girl was standing with a doll.
Who is it?
Yeondoo opened her mouth to see if she had read my mind.
“Dad, it’s sour.”
“What about Sieun?”
“Yes! I’m friends with Yeondoo.”
Come to think of it, the name of Yeondoo’s friend was Sieun.
The teacher opened his mouth.
“This is Sieun, who was chatting with Yeondoo while taking a nap. Yeondoo brags about her dad, Sieun brags about her mom. No matter how good the chemistry is, ho-ho.
I smiled and said to Sieun.
“You look cute. Thank you for being close to Yeondoo.
His pronunciation seemed to be much better than Yeondoo’s.
Well, that’s natural. Yeondoo didn’t learn to speak in a normal environment.
At that time, Sieun said to me with an earnest look.
“Can’t I go home with Yeondoo?”
“I want to go with Yeondoo…”
Then the teacher was embarrassed and opened his mouth.
“Sieun, you can’t do that. Sieun’s mom is coming soon, so let’s go then.
It was an embarrassing situation.
Sieun looked as if she was about to burst into tears.
Does Yeondoo’s charm affect her peers this much?
Yeondoo also stamped her feet, not knowing what to do.
Looking at Yeondoo’s expression, I thought it would be too much to just go.
I asked the teacher.
“Hey, sir. When will Sieun’s mother come?’
“Usually, my father and Sieun’s mother come at the latest time. Yeondoo and Sieun were left until the end. I think he’ll be here in 15 minutes at the latest.
“Then wait for today and come with me.
“I don’t care. I’m sorry. What should I do?”
“Ha ha, no.”
When she decided to wait, Sieun’s expression instantly brightened.
I can’t believe your expression can change so quickly.
Meanwhile, Yeondoo looked at me with an endless smile.
Is this smile a sign of gratitude?
I sat down and said.
“Yeon-du, then sit down and wait……”
I felt something on my cheek while I was talking.
When I looked at Yeondoo, I had already removed my lips.
Surprised, I smoothed my cheeks and bit them.
Yeondoo, where did you learn how to kiss?”
“I told you I liked you, but…”
“The teacher said he liked it when I kissed him on the cheek. Don’t you touch me if I do?”
As expected, the first impression of the teacher seemed good. You taught Yeondoo something really good.
But I don’t know if I should say no.
It’s so lovely that my heart might stop beating.
Come to think of it, I can’t give up.
C. Eventually, I spoke to Yeondoo.
“I’m only doing this to my dad.
Yeondoo smiled and answered vigorously.
* * *
The teacher at the daycare center was exactly right.
It’s been about 15 minutes, daycare center.
The bell rang.
Ddooroodoodoo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo…
I opened the door in front of the shoe rack.
But as soon as the door opened, the woman said with her head down.
I’m sorry I’m late every time. There’s a bus jam on the way here.”
Perhaps surprised by the man’s voice, she raised her head.
And my eyes met.
The reason why I and she both spit out questions and deaths at the same time was simple.
Well, we met this morning.
She was talking to me on her way to the daycare center with Yeondoo.
So this woman was Sieun’s mother?
The face of the child next to him at the time,
I didn’t check, so I didn’t notice at all.
We were so pressed for time that we didn’t even get a proper greeting. So I was going to say hello first when we meet next time, but I didn’t expect to see you right away.
I said hello first as I thought.
“I was sorry in the morning. I was in a hurry.”
“No! You were carrying him on your back.
I just said hello to you to see if you’re going to the same daycare center as me.
“I see. Then, Sieun’s mother… It’s right, isn’t it?”
“Yes, that’s right!”
I hesitated to ask because I looked too young, but fortunately, I think I was right.
Looking at it again, I look younger than I saw in the morning.
If you didn’t know it was your mother, you wouldn’t be too different if you were my age.
In a hurry.
Before I knew it, Sieun ran and went next to her mother.
She smiled and opened her mouth.
“So you’re Yeondoo’s father, aren’t you?”
“Yes, but you know Yeondoo’s name.””
“I heard it from Sieun yesterday. A really pretty friend came and her name is Yeondoo.”
‘Ha ha, I see.’
Yeondoo, you look so pretty..”
She looked at Yeondoo with a smile.
Yeondoo bowed her head and said.
He’s always very polite. Our Yeondoo.
* * *
“I’m sorry ”
‘No, I’m really fine.’ ‘But I’m really sorry.,’
After leaving the daycare center, Sieun’s mother kept apologizing to me.
After hearing the explanation from the daycare center teacher, I found out that I had been waiting for myself.
I never knew receiving an apology was so hard.
“Sieun, what are you going to do?” I’ll be nice and wait for you.”
I wanted to go with Yeondoo.
“But you still have to get in there quickly.…”
Eventually, I intervened.
“It’s really okay. I don’t have anything to do in the evening anyway, and I’ve been waiting for about 10 minutes.”
Of course, it’s 15 minutes to be exact, but I lowered it a little on purpose.
Only then did she stop apologizing.
“Thank you for your patience.”
Appreciation came back instead of an apology.
I was greeted with reason.
“Well, shall we go now?
So Yeon-du and I headed home with Sieun’s mother and daughter.
I opened my mouth as I walked.
“What’s your home direction?”
“I go straight this way, turn left, and I come out.！”
“Oh, then I’ll say hello over there. I’m on the right side.,’
She nodded her head.
It would have been quite awkward if it was just the two of them, but I didn’t feel that way because I heard Yeon-du and Sieun talking.
“Yeondu. What time do you sleep?”
“You went to bed late last night. I’m going to sleep at the end of the month.
Ten o’clock? Oh, that’s good.
“I have to go to bed at nine. If you don’t sleep, you’ll turn into a monster.’
Yeon-du’s eyes got bigger and asked again.三
The direction of the children’s conversation went strangely.
Eventually, embarrassed Sieun’s mother mediated.
“Sieun, Sieun, don’t say anything weird. Yeondoo looks at her weird.
Sieun’s mother said for no reason whether she was being stabbed.
“Just in case you misunderstand… I was just trying to scare you.”
I don’t want to sleep at all. I lied to you that if you don’t sleep, you’ll turn into a monster.”
“Ha ha, that’s very new. I’m not a grandpa. Did you make it yourself?”
“What’s the effect?”
She hesitated a little bit and then a little voice.
Whew, I’m jealous all of a sudden.”
“I am? ”
“I thought Yeondoo would listen very well. Being next to my dad.”
“Oh, yeah, but… Well, we don’t know from now on.
Naturally, we exchanged stories and found a crossroads.
Just as I was about to say hello, Sieun opened her mouth again.
Can’t you hang out with Yeondoo at the playground?
“He’s really. No! I’m going to go home, wash up, and go to bed.”
“Just 30 minutes!”
“Then ten minutes! Just ten minutes, huh?”
I think I know naturally from listening to it’s Sieun’s mother’s hardship.
Eventually, she pulled out a lethal move.
“Sieun, if you keep doing this…” You turn into a mother monster?”
“Chi, I’ve heard everything. It’s a lie. Mom, you liar!”
“… that’s a bad thing to say! Sieun, you can use bad words. No, no, no, no, no.
An embarrassing situation happened again.
I can’t believe I heard you speak so quietly.
This child, Sieun, has good ears.
But this… Don’t tell me I’m responsible.’
If it weren’t for me, I wouldn’t have said it.
It’s a story of course.
I felt sorry for nothing. You won’t be able to sleep with monster stories from now on.
Meanwhile, Yeondoo stared at the two, holding my hand tightly.
This time, she looks at Sieun without calling me like before.
What are you thinking?
Eventually I asked towards Yeondoo.
“Yeon-du, do you want to go to the playground?”
But Yeondoo’s mouth is shocking.
I heard the answer.
“Dad, what’s Norritor doing?”
