Part 10 & 11
Kyung Hee didn’t stop running until she made it home. Tears were streaming down her cheeks.
‘That jerk kissed me!’ she repeated to herself over and over.
‘That was my first kiss too! It was supposed to be for the guy of my dreams. Not a walking nightmare like Sung Hoon!’
“Why does Kang Sung Hoon hate me so much?” she asked herself out loud.
“What did I ever do to him?” Kyung Hee touched the back of her head. Her hair is really gone.
Five more years later….
During this time changes both take place for Kyung Hee and Sung Hoon. (They’re 18 and in high school)
Kyung Hee became more distant towards everyone. Everybody assumed it was because of her hair. She was no longer the sociable, bubbly girl but a silent aggressive jock. She traded in her baby tees, hair bows, skirts, and platforms for sweatshirts, baseball caps, tennis shoes, and baggy jeans. She would hang out with the nerds and jocks and just about anybody except for the popular girls (who are all stuck up in her opinion). No one dared to mess with Kyung Hee though. She developed a reputation for herself as a fighter when she managed to beat up the biggest girl bully in school. Kyung Hee is a really small and skinny person but no one could really tell that from underneath all of her clothes (so she seems bulky).
Jae Jin and Jae Duc stopped teasing Kyung Hee as time passed too. They’ve gotten more mature and dated around too. Kyung Hee still talks to Ji Yong but she had stopped calling him oppa.
Ever since that incident, Sung Hoon knew that Kyung Hee had changed. He had toned down on picking on her but he didn’t stop. He knew it was the only way and excuse he had if he wanted to talk to her. When he entered high school, he brought along his popularity and good looks with him. Sung Hoon became every girl’s dream guy. Well-built body, stylish hair, seductive eyes, and a killer smile. He dated every girl that every guy in his school want to date.
But sadly no matter how many girls he dated, they all meant nothing to him. He was never able to tell Kyung Hee how he really felt about her so he planned on keeping it a secret forever.
“Heads up!” Kyung Hee looked up and caught the ball that was aimed towards her. Sung Hoon started jumping around and yelling,
“For the honor of football, Kyung Hee is She-Man!”
“Go back into the cave where you crawled out from Porcupine!” she snapped back, referring to his hair. She threw the ball back at him.
‘Porcupine? It took me an hour to get my hair like this!’ Sung Hoon thought.
‘Damn why does her words have to get on my nerves so much. No one else can ever do that!’
“Aww… You're grouchy because everytime you look at me you know you can only look but can’t touch?”
“Puh-lease… If I touch you I might get a disease.”
“Poor Kyung Hee. Gonna die a single, lonely old nun.” Kyung Hee gave him a secretive smile.
“Just because I don’t date around like you do doesn’t mean anything. And beside…. How do you know I’m single?” Sung Hoon looked at her.
‘Is she dating someone I don’t know?’ He was about to ask but just then Shin Chun Ok (Sung Hoon’s latest girlfriend) walked up and interrupted their disses.
“Sung Hoonee!” She ran up to squeeze him. Sung Hoon rolled his eyes.
‘Damn Chun Ok. Why did she have to be here? She’s so annoying!’ But he gave her a smile anyways.
“So what are you doing here?”
“I want you to take a look at my dress!” It was a tight little black V-neck dress that showed plenty. And Chun Ok was a little chubby too.
“It’s nice.” Sung Hoon really didn’t care anyway. He planned to break up with her soon. Kyung Hee was watching them the whole time. She rolled her eyes. Chun Ok caught Kyung Hee watching them. She began to talk to Kyung Hee in her fake sugary voice.
“I know what you’re thinking. But sorry this dress doesn’t come in a large.” Kyung Hee gave her a fake smile.
“No but your mouth sure does.” Then she walked away. Chun Ok rolled her eyes behind Kyung Hee’s back.
“Whatever.” Sung Hoon glared at her. He didn’t like it when other people made fun of Kyung Hee just because she dressed like a guy.
“You didn’t have to say that you know.” Chun Ok stomped her feet.
“Why do you always take her side?” she whined. Sung Hoon just walked away.
