I Become a Doting Father chapter 71
Surprised by the unexpected request, I asked back.
Seo repeated what she had just said in a cautious voice.
“May I ask you to draw a picture of your study paper?””
A moment of silence hovered.
She continued, saying, “Oops.”
“Of course I’m not just asking you to do it! We’re going to do a thorough share of the profits! It’s all thanks to you that I got a chance to publish it in the first place.…”
Seo Ji-hye murmured for a long time.
But she got the wrong pint. I’m not embarrassed for that reason.
The reason I was surprised was very simple.
‘Cause I didn’t expect it.’
Although I recently started art again, it was just a hobby.
I felt rewarded that people still liked my paintings.
However, I never thought that I would develop beyond my hobby. At least for the time being.
But I didn’t expect the opportunity to come this way.
It was a completely unexpected request, so I was more surprised.
Meanwhile, Seo Ji-hye was still mumbling to herself.
“…… so that I can get you in the best possible direction…
Can’t you do that’s it.
She said in a gloomy voice.
I don’t know why you think I’m going to say no.
Is it because of the embarrassment I just saw?
I opened my mouth with a smile.
Can I ask you a question?”
“Yes, ask me anything! Tubing of Conditions
“It’s not like that. I’m not interested in the terms.”
What? What do you mean……”
“I’m just curious. I’m not a pro, and I could be introduced to an excellent painter through iBook publisher. That would be better in terms of profit sharing.”
It was a question that I could have enough.
He’s the one she’s gonna collaborate with.
Because there’s no reason.
Even saying that I’m setting the profit allocation as favorable as possible.
After a while, Seo Ji-hye’s voice was heard.
“I like your drawing. That’s all.”
It was such a simple answer that I was speechless.
Seo Ji-hye continued with a smile.
“I’m the creator of the study paper. I think I can make a better study guide if I like the drawing. That’s why I’m asking you.！”
In the end, it meant that I liked my painting.
Yeondoo’s illustration would be all she saw of me.
Do you believe my drawing skills based on that one thing?
The corners of my mouth that go up weirdly. A word popped out.
“You’re still young, Ji-hye.”
And as soon as I spit it out, I regretted it.
What did I just say? Isn’t that what an old man would say?
I didn’t mean to say that at all.
It was literally “Shut of Shut.”
‘I’m sorry. I just made a mistake.’ ‘Oh, kkk.’
Damn it. He’s smiling, too.
She continued in a laughing voice.
“Are you sure it was a mistake? I think it’s from the bottom of my heart.…”
“No, I meant to be pure, but I lost my words.
“Well, it’s okay. I look younger than I am I?
“But don’t look too young. I ate as much as I could.”
That’s what Seo Ji-hye added.
Did I just make a slip of the tongue?
“Don’t worry, you’re no better than me.”
We exchanged such a playful conversation.
I was glad she didn’t take my words seriously.
Now it was time to get back to business.
“So, Ji-hye, please.” Yes.
“I’ll take it.”
“Yes, let’s just go with the industry average.”
“I tried to fit you in as much as I could.…”It’s all right.”
I didn’t mean to be greedy about the terms from the start.
First of all, I didn’t have a decent career.
It was rather uncomfortable to present unilateral conditions just because they were met.
It wasn’t good when I thought of Yeondoo Tube.
If I were to introduce my study paper later, it wouldn’t be a good scene to make too much profit from it.
No, I didn’t want to look away from others.
For that reason, I thought about participating without pay. But I excluded it from the options because I thought it would be a problem in its own way.
In the end, it was good for each other to decide on the average condition.
Above all, the decisive reason I accepted the request was not money.
Because I thought it would be fun.
When I first saw Jihye’s study paper.
I thought it was a great place to study, but there was only one regret.
It was study paper design and animal painting.
In fact, it was a contradiction to expect high quality in that regard.
Ji-hye takes turns and studies.
All the club members who made it together are also shifts.
I heard that they drew it on their own because there was no manpower.
It couldn’t have been possible to draw a high-quality picture in the first place.
I can do it.’
Recently, confidence in painting had risen quite a bit.
I wanted to improve the quality of the study paper by making up for the shortcomings with my ability.
That’s gonna be a lot of work for me.
Yeondoo will be able to study as a better place to study.’
From that point of view, it was also for Yeondoo.
It was also for Yeondoo Tube in that we could introduce better study materials to our subscribers.
“Then, try your best, Ji-hye.”
“I look forward to your kind cooperation, Mr. Artist.”
Don’t do that.”
“I’m sorry, kkkk. Oh, by the way, brother.’,
“When will the next video be uploaded on Yeondoo Tube? I’m waiting.
“I posted it yesterday.,’
Oh, really? Why didn’t the alarm go off?
The call ended with her saying she would go to see it.
When the call ended, a study paper was drawn in my head.
To be exact, the study paper completed with my paintings.
I’m looking forward to it.
It may not be such a big deal. Drawing a study paper picture.k.
But it was quite meaningful to me.
It felt like I was finally taking the first step.

“There’s a rat drop.”
There was only one person who called Yeondoo like this.
She was my maternal grandmother Min Hong-im.
Although I recently met Yeon-du on the issue of adoption.
It has been a long time since Yeondoo met her maternal grandmother.
Maybe that’s why Yeondoo looked scared. He didn’t come out from behind me.
The sight made me laugh for some reason.
When you left the countryside, you were sad to say goodbye to your grandmother.
When she couldn’t hear the answer, she snapped back.
‘Aren’t you going to answer?’ ‘Ha, I’m going to.！”
Yeondoo hid behind me and continued.
“But Yeondoo is not a fat wool…”
“Huh? That’s funny. a clean rat room
“Yeon-du doesn’t cry.”
“How dare you yell at her?”
“Ha, Grandma Meyer…”
It was still a relationship between the two even though we met after a long time.
My maternal grandmother mumbled as if she had a headache.
“I’m crazy. She’s my daughter.
At that, Yeondoo was surprised and opened her mouth.
“I’m not good at this. I won’t do that.
I think he remembers what I said in the country before.
It means that grandmother needs to adopt Yeondoo to live together.
It was a slip of the tongue while talking, but it seems to have affected Yeondoo.
Of course, it’s true that adoption was necessary.
I did not meet the terms of adoption.
He was underage, and he didn’t meet the financial conditions.
So the person I asked for is my maternal grandmother, Min.
It was Hongim.
The reason why I met my grandmother with Yeondoo today was because of the adoption issue.
‘Cause all the adoption procedures are over.
Adoption was more complicated than I thought.
Fortunately, it could not be delayed thanks to my maternal grandmother’s steady process.
And just now, it’s been granted final permission from the family court.
That is, Yeondoo is legally a grandmother’s grandmother’s…
In other words, she has become a daughter.
‘That’s why the genealogy is so twisted.’
I couldn’t help it because it was the best way.
We have no choice but to be satisfied that adoption has been successfully accepted.
I patted Yeondoo’s head and relieved her.
“Don’t worry, Yeondoo. I’m going to live with my dad from now on.
“Ha, Grandma’s not taking Yeondoo.
“Yeah, I’m not taking you.”
I answered with a hint of consciousness, and my grandmother said,
“Phew, you’re having fun, you’re having fun.”
“I am truly grateful to my grandmother.”
“I know it wasn’t easy. The question of adopting Yeondoo. I’m glad my grandmother is here.”
What if there was no grandmother?
I remembered the faces of relatives I met at the funeral.
It was obvious what they would think when they saw Yeon-du now.
There was still a problem to be sure of.
I was going to talk to my grandmother about him while eating today.
“Let’s go, Grandma. I’m supposed to treat you to an expensive meal.”
“That’s a quick ride. snobbish
I don’t know if I should say that I like him because he’s consistent
But I couldn’t refute it because it wasn’t wrong.
Eventually, I held Yeondoo’s hand without saying a word and moved.
* * *
A luxurious restaurant in Seocho-gu found through Internet search.
I’ve never been to a place like this to eat before. Inji-ra, I was a little nervous from the start.
Yeah, it’s an expensive restaurant I’ve been to, so it’s like an outback.
The sign at the entrance of the restaurant said this.
La One Chef Lee Ho-yeon. Best fixed meal ever!
The 6 Best Meal’ was a popular terrestrial cooking program these days.
Korean star chefs gather to cook with ingredients in celebrities’ refrigerators.
Buying gamjatang in the neighborhood was also a hell of a deal for me. Of course it was my first time coming to a restaurant like this.
I’m here to treat my grandmother who sings expensive songs like a habit.
“Why aren’t you going in?”
“Oh, yes. I’ll go in.,’
I opened the door at the urging of my grandmother. In fact, it wasn’t a waste of money to eat.
I’m just feeling awkward at the first place I’m coming.
As soon as I entered, a young female employee greeted me.
“Welcome, it’s Rawon.” Yes, hello.”
For some reason, exchanging greetings with employees felt awkward.
It’s just an ordinary greeting, nothing special.
Yeondoo bowed and said hello.
Unlike me, there seemed to be no awkwardness.
Well, Yeondoo wouldn’t even know what a fancy restaurant is.
“Yes, hello. Oh, my God.”
But the employee’s response was somewhat strange.
He looked surprised as if he had seen something amazing.
Later, the employee looked at me and Yeon-du alternately, covering their mouths, and said,
Oh, did you–did you make a reservation?” ‘No.’
Did I have to make a reservation? I didn’t have a good feeling about it.
“I’ll show you to your seat.”
Whew. Fortunately, it didn’t happen that I couldn’t go out without a meal.
I followed the lead employee holding Yeondoo’s hand.
It wasn’t lunch time, but there were a lot of empty tables.
Yeondoo, who was walking along the staff and looked around, opened her mouth.
“Elegant… Daddy! It’s so shiny.!”
Yeondoo pointed somewhere with her hand.
There were colorful trophies on display.
It looked like a trophy on display to represent the chef’s career.
I was going to answer something, but my grandmother suddenly opened her mouth.
“I raised you wrong, I raised you wrong.”
“What? All of a sudden?
“I like small things that sparkle already. Tsk tsk.”
A grandmother who says so and kicks her tongue. I was so embarrassed that I couldn’t even speak.
Of course, Yeon-du, who did not understand, looked puzzled.
“Ha, Grandma! It’s not like that!” ‘This is screaming, too? Grandma can’t even play games?”
“Since when have you been playing tricks on me?’,
“Shut up, you spoiled cockpit.”
It was a harsh word that didn’t go well with restaurants in this atmosphere.
The end of this crazy conversation was decorated by Yeondoo.
“Don’t be so mean to me.！”
a laugh that sounds out of the blue It was from the mouth of an employee, not us.
I tried to hold it in, but I couldn’t.
She giggled for no reason.
“I’m sorry, I’m sorry! You can sit here.”
“Oh, yes, sir.
“Please wait a moment.”
The employee left his seat as if he were running away from leaving the menu.
Well, it’s been a year since she burst into laughter.
It was a conversation that could be quite funny for a third party to hear.
From an employee’s perspective, it must have felt like watching a sitcom.
From now on, I was going to act according to the atmosphere.
I sat at the table and laid out the menu.
Unfamiliar numbers were seen, but they were not necessary.
“Hmm. Is there a menu you’d like to have, Grandma?”
Then someone walked toward our table.
He looked familiar to me.
You’re a chef.’
It was the same face I saw on TV program.
Restaurant chef Lee Ho-yeon was walking with a previous employee.
Why are they coming to us? Are you trying to kick me out because he doesn’t fit in our restaurant?
I can’t imagine that. I can’t believe it.
He stopped in front of me and opened his mouth.
“Hello, I’m chef Lee Ho-yeon.”
“Yes, hello. What brings you here?…” If you don’t mind, talk about the menu.
I’d like to order.”
Was it like that?
This fancy restaurant is supposed to be a place where the chef…
Are you explaining the menu yourself?
It was natural to think that something was wrong.
Perhaps because I was embarrassed, my brain didn’t work properly.
After all, what I did was the most natural answer.
Take your hands off the menu and say the chef’s words.
I’ve been waiting.
But I couldn’t hear the chef.
I don’t know how many times I’ve been embarrassed since I entered the restaurant.
Eventually, I lifted my eyes and looked at the chef.
For some reason, the chef’s eyes glistened at me.
It wasn’t until we met eyes like that that that that that’s how the chef opened his mouth.
It’s a problem that I’ve never heard of it before.
I’m a big fan of you.
