“Good evening, Sir” the front officer greeted him
“Good evening, I’m Choi Minho. I’m here on behalf of Mr. Choi Jin Yi” said Minho
The officer checked his computer and then asked Minho
“Mr Choi Minho, Mr. Choi Jin Yi’s relative from Manchester ?”
“We have your reservation. Welcome to Staines Sir. And as an accordance with the procedur which is applied to all of our guests, we need you to fill this form in advance, in order to complete our data “ said the officer while giving Minho the form .
Minho filled the form and gave it back to the officer
“Thankyou Mr. Choi Minho. This is your room card. Your room number is 567 on the 5th floor. We hope you will enjoy your stay here Sir. Good Evening”
“Thankyou very much. Good Evening” Minho answered him and smiled
Minho decided to go to his room. He need to clean and fresh himself after driving for 3 hours. Most of all, he needed to recharge his mobile phone which already ran out of battery just when he arrived there, and call his Mom to tell that he savely arrived at Staines.
“Should I call her now? “ He looked at the number on his phone.
he just finished talking to his mom on phone and got Sulli’s number from her.
“Well it’s dinner time already. Why don’t I just ask her to have dinner together ?”
“The number you are calling is out of reach or not inside the service area. Leave your message after the bip sound.”
Minho heard the operator voice again on his second call to Sulli
“Great..her phone is not active. What is she doing now?”
“Did she go back to her room when she left the lobby ?”
“Should I go to her room ? …aaah..no no no…not her room.”
“I don’t know her room number anyway….giiiish…silly me”
Didn’t want to stay longer in confusion for unknowing where Sulli is, Minho decided to have dinner by himself.
He brought a book with him. He was halfway to finish the book, and planned to continue reading, down at the lobby after his dinner. Minho is really a bookworm. Reading book is like a daily ritual for him. He always managed to read, even only for two or five pages.
So …he went down to have dinner at the hotel restaurant.
Minho was already in front of the restaurant when he heard his phone ring.
He took his phone from his small-sized sling bag, which is only fit for a phone, an ipod and his 7inch tablet.
“It’s her ..!!”
Minho saw Sulli’s name on his phone screen. He already saved her number.
He did his “blew out”. Something that he will always do whenever he got nervous or having an emotional tense.
“Good evening ..This is Choi Minho speaking” finaly Minho answered the call.
He could heard Sulli’s voice…but then he heard nothing
said Minho while walking closer to the restaurant entrance and incidentally he saw Sulli.
She had one of her hand holding the phone on her ear, and the other hand covered her mouth.
Minho felt giddy on Sullli’s reaction. “Pabo Choi Jinri” said Minho silently.
“Yaa!! Choi Jinri !! D o you know how to talk on the phone ? Do you know that calling someone but then not speaking any words can be considered as minor crime ? Someone could sue you for this.”
Minho always love to tease Sulli or just fooling her around. He felt that he found himself again. Eventhough he sometimes still did silly things or being a dork, but he did that only with his brothers. He became a quiet and mostly a cold person at school. Even at his football team, he is the quiet one. And he remained that way at his college now.
“Mwo…what crime?? Yaa !! I am not a bad person!!” Sulli finally said something, actually she yelled something .
“tut ..tut…tut..tut…” phone disconnected
“What..!! she cut off her phone ?!! Aiissh..jinja…she really need to learn the manner how to make a decent call to someone….gishhh…such a rude girl”
Minho wanted to give Sulli a lesson for being impolite to him.
He smirked with his eyes still looked to where Sulli was sitting.
So, without hesitation, Minho entered the restaurant to continue with his plan.
He was lucky that Sulli didn’t notice his presence. Sulli was too busy enjoying the beautiful scenes of the thames river with her pouting lips, her left hand was twirling her handphone on the table.
“She never failed to look very cute when she got mad”
Sulli’s cute expression always make him wanted to tease her again and again.
Silently he walked closer to Sulli and then stood behind her.
Slowly he bent over and whispered to Sulli’s ear
“Yaa ..Choi Jinri”
Minho touched his nose that just bumped with Sulli’s head.
“Yaa!!!…CHOI JINRI !!”
this time Minho wasn’t whispered, he yelled at Sulli.
“My poor nose..” he cried out for pain
Minho’s loud and heavy tone of voice really called other people’s attentions.
Everyone there instantly looked to their way.
