“Students, today will be split up in smaller groups and you’ll be able to explore the facilities that we have to offer here at Seoul University. Thank you very much.”
The students got divided and you happily showed the security guard your ticket and he smiled back.
Your second last stop was the library in which you were smiling happily.
“Wah, you’re such a bookworm,” the girl next to you looked at you in a judging manner.
“Isn’t that how one gets into university?” you answered.
“Please feel free to wander around the library for a while before we call you back.”
You wondered off and went off into the engineering section to see if the son was there. You searched the studying bays but you wouldn’t find him.
“No Jenny, you can’t give up. Pisces are optimistic people,” you encouraged yourself.
I made my way to the books and browsed through them as I waited for the guide to call us in. Seriously, I should not have gotten all hyped up about it. As if I’m going to find ONE guy in a university this colossal.
“Excuse me,” I looked up and saw the son. Oh my gosh! The son found me! Awesome!
“I saw you wandering around and looking at people’s faces… were you looking for someone?”
I smiled widely, “I was actually looking for you.”
“I actually wanted to ask you more questions that I couldn’t on the day you came to my school.”
“Yeah, that’s where I remember you from.”
“You remember me? There were girls flocking you after the assembly,” I laughed.
Good job, keep talking like this. Don’t freak him out; you kind of need him to like you.
The son laughed, “You were the only girl who didn’t ask for my number, pretty memorable to me.”
Memorable aye? Must have been something I did before the mission...
I smiled shyly, it feels so strange hearing lines like that from a good guy. It’s actually nice… I swear, if he’s in it with his father, I’m going to make sure he never says it to a girl again but if he’s not, heck, I’d organise his wedding.
I put out my hand, “I’m Choi Jun Hee but I like to be called Jenny.”
He put his books on the shelf and shook my hand, “Lee Chan Hee but I prefer Chunji.”
I nodded my head, “Chunji, I have a few questions to ask you. If you don’t mind, that is.”
Chunji smiled at me and nodded his head, “What do you need to know?”
“Well, I’m the first child and my parents don’t know that much about course fees and how much I need for my test to get into a university and I’m freaked out about studying and I basically have no social whatsoever,” I laughed at the last point.
Chunji laughed, “I remember what that was like… ahh… high school…”
“I know this might seem a bit rude but did you get here on a scholarship? Because if you came from our school…”
“I did. My family wasn’t that well off when I in high school so yeah… I had to get a scholarship. Are you trying to apply for a scholarship?”
You nodded your head, “Yeah, but all I know is that I have to study really hard and get good marks but I also have to do a lot of volunteering. Thing is, I don’t have time to do volunteering… not on a regular basis anyways.”
“Hm… I know what you mean.”
“Excuse me, may all the high school students please gather around. We must move onto our next location.”
I put on a hesitant smile, “I guess that’s my cue to go.”
“Look, if you have any questions don’t be afraid to ask me.”
How do you expect me to contact you when one, I’m in high school and have no identification to get into this university and two, I have no way of contacting you.
“Right,” Chunji looked embarrassed, “Do you have a phone?”
Nah… I don’t. I came from the 15th century. Of course I do, even the poorest of the poor nowadays have a phone. Plus, I had to get a phone to prove to my parents that I was well off so they wouldn’t worry about me.
I took out my phone and handed it to Chunji.
“Call me after 7pm and we can discuss things if you want to or just call me any day after 7pm,” said Chunji as he put his number into my phone.
I took my phone back and nodded my head. This guy is either really helpful or he’s got some feelings for me. I hope he’s got feelings so then I can be one step closer to getting this thing done.
“I should get going, I’m off to the law faculty,” I bowed before running back to the group.
---------Two weeks later--------
I was doing my homework and 20 minutes into a phone conversation with Chunji.
Chunji: Okay, I must confess, I have embarrassed before.
You: You? I guess it can happen to anyone.
Chunji: Up until I started kindergarten, my mum dressed my up as a girl.
Chunji: Don’t laugh that much!
You: That’s so typical for a flower boy *laugh* Ok, seriously, don’t laugh but I was in the rural area when I was seven, but as I was walking along the water, I slipped and fell right in and-
You: I can hear you laughing in the background!
Chunji: I’m sorry, that’s cute. Mine was just plain weird. It could have messed up my development.
You: Well it didn’t. I didn’t go swimming for a whole week.
Chunji: Am I disrupting you doing your work?
You: I have you on speaker phone. I’m doing my homework right now.
Chunji: Is it a lot of work? Need any help? I’m super good at maths.
You: So am I. I need help for English though…
Chunji: Well, meet me up at a café and I can give you some tips on English.
You: Are you sure? You must be busy with your own work though.
Chunji: You have a much more important exam next year so you’ll need it.
You: Thanks sunbae but um… I think I have to concentrate on doing homework…
Chunji: Oh… okay. Yeah. Um… bye!
You: Bye sunbae!
----------End of phone call----------
For two weeks, I’m doing pretty well. It’s so nice at least one person in my case to be a decent person. It’s refreshing. I hacked into his phone. I know, it’s a bad thing and I can’t use it as evidence because it wasn’t legally obtained but I did find his father’s number and with that, Niel is in the process of hacking his dad’s phone. But the dad isn’t stupid; he changes his number every week. Every single, freaking week. So every single freaking week, I had to hack poor Chunji’s phone all the time. Poor guy doesn’t even know it’s happening. For someone who didn’t see a computer until she was 12, I do have a way with technology.
Now I have to think of a way to get into his family or at least get into his house. I need to find those apparent hidden files. However, breaking into a house is going to have to go after doing homework.
I let out a sigh as I went back to my homework.
