It Was You All Along
Part 5 & 6Part 5
Sung Hoon tapped his foot impatiently against his desk.
‘Where the hell is Kyung Hee? She should have been back here before me and the others.’
He sent Jae Duc and Jae Jin to go out and find her. He began to worry but then he heard Kyung Hee’s voice. He watched her talking to a strange guy. They both sat down in a corner and then that guy handed Kyung Hee back her backpack.
‘This does not look good,’ thought Sung Hoon.
Kyung Hee looked over at Ji Yong’s shoulder and saw Sung Hoon looking at them.
‘Eat your heart out Sung Hoon.’ Ji Yong had been so sweet to her.
‘I wish Ji Yong was my older brother,’ she thought.
‘That way he can protect me from that animal Sung Hoon.’ And just then Sung Hoon walked up to them.
“Hi. I’m Kang Sung Hoon the school’s representative. And you are?” he looked at Ji Yong. Ji Yong started to analyze Sung Hoon.
‘So this is the guy who’s picking on Kyung Hee.’ Then Kyung Hee’s words came back to him.
"Sigh…" Ji Yong looked at Kyung Hee.
“What’s the sigh for?” She looked down at the floor.
“Come on Kyung Hee. If you called me oppa, that means you can tell me anything.”
“Well… I’m afraid I’m going to get beaten up today.”
“Huh? What do you mean?” Kyung Hee lifted up the sleeve of her uniform.
“Take a look at this.” Ji Yong glanced at her arms. Both of them had dark purple bruises.
“And this too,” she added and pointed to her head. There was also a dark purple bruise there. Ji Yong looked at her in shock.
“Who did this to you?”
“A psycho by the name of Kang Sung Hoon.”
“Why? Doesn’t he know guys aren’t supposed to hit girls?” Kyung Hee glanced up at Ji Yong.
“Human guys don’t hit girls. Kang Sung Hoon is an animal.” She sighed again.
“But it’s okay… I’m used to it by now.” Ji Yong squeezed her shoulder
“Well stop getting use to it. This torture is going to end today.”
“What do you mean?”
“I mean, I’m going to teach this Sung Hoon guy a lesson.” Kyung Hee grabbed Ji Yong and hugged him.
“Really?” He nodded.
“Yay!” she screamed.
“You can do it in P.E. today. His Highness is the champion here but not anymore now that you’re here Ji Yong oppa..” Ji Yong gave her a smile and nodded.
“Let’s get to class before we’re late.”
Ji Yong looked at Sung Hoon who had just approached him.
“I’m Ko Ji Yong. And I know who you are.” Sung Hoon looked at Kyung Hee.
‘Must have told him about me,’ he thought. Sung Hoon shrugged his shoulders.
“Fame spreads.” Ji Yong looked at him.
‘Kyung Hee was right. That conceited bastard!” Sung Hoon let out a fake cough.
“Excuse me, Mr. Ko. I believe you’re in my seat.” Ji Yong gave him a look.
“I don’t think so.” Sung Hoon gave Ji Yong a glare that could freeze an entire ocean. Just then Jae Jin and Jae Duc came in. Sung Hoon waved for them to come over.
“Hey guys come over here and meet my new friend.” Jae Jin and Jae Duc walked over.
“Hey guys,” said Sung Hoon.
“This is Ko Ji Yong. Apparently, he doesn’t know where he’s sitting.” Jae Duc gave a little smirk.
“Aww… He’s new Sung Hoon. He don’t know that he’s sitting in your place.”
Jae Jin nodded and told Ji Yong, “You better move boy. You’re sitting with my friend’s wife.”
Kyung Hee opened her mouth in shock.
“He’s lying!” Ji Yong looked at all of them. He could tell that Sung Hoon and the other two were lying. He turned around to face Sung Hoon.
“No I don’t want to move. I like sitting here.” Sung Hoon was ticked but didn’t say anything. He had to stop Jae Jin and Jae Duc from confronting Ji Yong.
Sung Hoon just gave a fake smile and said, “I’ll see how long you will like sitting there.”
Then he and the boys left.
Kyung Hee let out a sigh of relief.
“Thanks Ji Yong oppa. Everyday that Sung Hoon and his buddies will sit next to me so they could torture me. But now that you’re here, they can’t do it anymore.”
“It’s nothing,” said Ji Yong.
“I’ll try my best to stop him from torturing you.”
~Ring~ It was the last bell of the day.
“Come on Ji Yong oppa! Time for P.E.!”
Kyung Hee and Ji Yong walked to the gym together. When they looked up they saw the janitor fixing the ceiling. Kyung Hee walked up to him.
“What are you doing Mr. Seo?”
“Just fixing the ceiling fans Kyung Hee. These things are sharp and could cut somebody up! You two kids better get to class now. I have a lot to work to do today.” Kyung Hee and Ji Yong waved goodbye to Mr. Seo. Then they both went their own separate ways to the locker rooms to change for class.
Sung Hoon sat down on the mat and waited for Kyung Hee and Ji Yong to come out from the locker rooms. Jae Jin sat down next to him while Jae Duc had another class to go to.
“So you gonna kick the crap outta the new guy Sung Hoon?”
“Yeah. That’ll teach him to mess with me.” Jae Jin scrached his head.
“Dude, I don’t get it. The only thing he did was sit next to Kyung Hee. So why you tripping for? You in love with her or something?” Sugn Hoon glared at him.
“Hell no! I don’t like her. I just don’t want anyone messing with my stuff alright?
“Okay okay. Chill. Hey here they come.” Ji Yong found a place to sit on the mat while Kyung Hee sat next to him. A guy from their P.E. class named Jang Su Won shouted out,
“Hey Kyung Hee! You dump Sugn Hoon for the new guy?”
She yelled back, “Shut up dork!”
Everyone in class, including Ji Yong and Sung Hoon stared at her. Kyung Hee just looked away and pretended not to notice. Then she leaned over and whispered in Ji Yong’s ear.
“Kick Sung Hoon’s butt hard.”
Sung Hoon looked at Kyung Hee leaning near Ji Yong.
‘Damn you Kyung Hee. Is it so terrible to be known as my girlfriend?’ he thought fuming.
‘You’re going down pretty boy.’ He glared at Ji Yong who was also glaring at him back.
