"Ha ha. It's awkward to see you turning your back like this. Don't you think so?”
But there was no answer coming back. A cold sweat broke out on Hyun Jong's back.
Chung-Myung, who was sitting in the long-door house, turned halfway and looked only at the plum tree scroll on the wall. Hyun Jong lamented inwardly.
Why did you bring that?
If there was just a wall, it would be awkward and boring to look through, but the scroll hung unnecessarily, giving Chung-Myung a justification to turn his head.
"That... haha. Aren't plum blossoms so pretty?"
"Yes, it's pretty."
Hyun Jong forced himself to smile as he looked at Chung-Myung, who answered without turning his head.
"Yeah, I see. The……."
First, I opened my mouth and looked around, and Hyun Sang and Hyun Young were just sitting there with a sad face. Anyway, it was Hyun Jong who forbade Chung-Myung to go, so he seemed to solve it himself.
"Things to be ruined."
After sighing deeply, Hyun Jong fixed his expression and looked at Chung-Myung again. The swollen cheeks didn't seem to be solved easily.
You have to turn your head and say it. Yes?
"You know, things don't just go as we expected, they change from time to time.…isn't it?"
"That's right, Jang."
As the moderate answer began to return, Hyun Jong nodded happily.
"Ha ha. So what can I do? I need someone to solve the problem, but you're the one I trust the most in Hwasan."
"I guess it's private accommodation.
"Come on, it's private lodging."
You're a quick-witted bastard.….
Hyun Jong's eyes trembled.
"There you go, there you go. I trust Baek Cheon, too. But you can't leave everything to them. You know, they're all still ugly."
"Don't you think so, too?"
As I turned around asking for consent, the elders did not react with a sullen look. However, when Hyun Jong opened his eyes, both of them were bitterly added.
"That's... that's right. I can't leave it to them yet.….”
"Come on. You're right. How can I trust them? Chung-Myung needs to step up to make things work!"
At that moment, Hyun Jong looked like a ghost.
The subtle flapping of Chung-Myung's ears, which turned his head to its place.
'Now's the time!
"So am I. I made a bold decision for my children's growth, but I think it's too big to leave it to them alone. In times like this, you have to step up and give it to me! You're the blackest man of Hwasan!"
It was visible to the eyes of experienced Hyun Jong. The corners of Chung-Myung's mouth and cheekbones are flinching as if they are about to pop up.
"Chung-Myung아. So why don't you step up to the plate?"
Chung-Myung slowly returned his head completely. Unlike before, there was a refreshing smile around his mouth.
'That's enough, that's enough...'
"Yes, yes, Chung-Myung!"
Chung-Myung smiled brightly to Hyun Jong, who happily responded.
"My student is fine!"
"I'm sure Sasook will take care of it. What's the big deal? Jang Mun-in trusted me so much, so I should do well."
At the end of the sentence, Chung-Myung lifted his butt slightly.
"Then I have to clean the white market, so bye."
"Now, wait a minute!"
I didn't think so, but I really stood up as if I were going out. Hyun Jong freaked out and hung over his waist."What's wrong, Jang Moon-in!"
"Oh, sit down! Let's sit down first. Chung-Myung, let's sit down and talk!"
"I have nothing more to say! Don't do this! My pants are going down."
"Then you could sit down!"
In the end, Chung-Myung sat back pretending not to win, and then Hyun Jong wiped the sweat off his forehead and let go of Chung-Myung's waist.
"No, I understand why you're doing this, but...…hasn't the situation changed?"
"No, Jang Moon-in!"
When Chung-Myung glared, Hyun Jong flinched.
"In the first place! Huh? You said your students need to go through adversity without me to grow up and develop independence!"
"He, he did."
"Isn't this the adversity? Adversity! What better way to build self-reliance!"
Hyun Jong, who became a honey mute, blankly saw Chung-Myung.
"If you're going to do that, you shouldn't have started in the first place! They said they should be able to handle everything on their own, and that things have changed, and they're running to solve it!"
Hyun Sang and Hyun Young shook their heads with their arms crossed. However, Hyun Jong's blood-stained eyes quickly turned to him.
Hyun Jong sighed and said in a heavier voice.
"Chung-Myung아. I don't do this when I think about children. As you say, you want to overcome the danger and grow further. But don't you say that there are people held there? They must be saved."
But Chung-Myung didn't fall for it easily. On the contrary, his eyes were fluttering as if he were almost eating.
"No, it's adversity, including that. You've got to take care of that! That's how you can build your independence! When can you develop your self-reliance only if you solve easy problems?”
Hyun Jong was speechless for a moment.
Haha. You're saying the right things today.
"I'm not doing this because I don't want to go. I deeply sympathized with the great meaning of the writer."
"I understood for sure that we had to hold back our tears and make this decision for him. All of this is for Hwasan."
"Yes! If I had ever had an ulterior motive, I would have been struck by lightning...….”
Suddenly, everyone opened their eyes wide at the sound of thunder from the sky and stared toward the window.
"......there's no cloud.”
"What a bolt from the blue sky...….”
Only Chung-Myung mumbled to himself, shaking his cheeks.
Are you sure you're going to do this?
Please take your conscience, you son of a b*tc*! Conscience!
Chung-Myung changed his face and changed his words calmly.
"…a little bit, self-interest, but! I'm not doing this out of personal interest."
"Anyway, I'm not going, so trust me with the private lodgings and executions who went to the Janggang River."
When Chung-Myung eventually jumped up and opened the door, Hyun Jong flew again.
"Hey! Let go! You have to keep your dignity as a writer!"
"The humiliation has fed you!"
"Hey! Let it go! Your pants are stretched!"
"I'm sorry, Chung-Myung! People should be saved and seen!"
Unam, who was listening outside the door, grinned as the loud voice leaked out of Hyun Jong's office. Then he stood next to the other disciples and said,
"Yes, boarding house."
"Cover your ears."
A wise man's ship encircled Chung-Myung's three sides, leaning against the wall."Come on, Chung-Myung. Let's calm down for now."
"How dare you do this?"
"Don't you know it takes a long time to get from Hwasan to the other disciples?"
"There you go, there you go. It takes a long time."
"You know you're the only one who can go fast alone and drag time until the main unit arrives."
"There you go, there you go. Chung-Myung is the only one."
Hyun Sang and Hyun Young, who continued to persuade them that seemed like threats, dropped Hyun Jong in the middle.
Stop talking back and say something. Who is this all because of?' was clearly young.
Hyun Jong eventually sighed and opened his mouth in a serious voice.
"Chung-Myung아. People make wrong judgments in their lives, and when they make mistakes, they make up for it, right?
"There's no one else to pack! There's someone else cleaning up!"
"There you go, there you go."
Hyun Young distorted his face.
"Why would you come out of there?"
Hyun Jong wiped the sweat off his forehead and laughed awkwardly again.
"Anyway, you are the only one I can trust right now. What do I do with you being the best?”
Chung-Myung's cheeks twitched slightly.
The elders clapped their hands to the best of their ability.
"There you go, there you go! The only thing I can trust is Chung-Myung!"
"Yes, Chung-Myung. It's not because the writer is malicious. You were able to make that decision because you could stand up for me in times of crisis."
"What? What do you mean by that?”
"I can make bold decisions because I believe you can solve everything when it's dangerous. In other words, all of these decisions were possible because you were so good."
Once Chung-Myung's face seemed to melt halfway, the elders began to dig in the gap.
"Oh, my. What am I going to do? If Chung-Myung doesn't come forward, there's no one to handle this.”
"Hwasan is going to fail, he's going to fail. If Jang Moon-in makes a wrong decision, Hwasan will be ruined.”
"You lost your gun, tsk tsk."
Hyun Jong, who even clapped hard, looked at the priests on the left and right with a slightly strange look.
But when they hear it, they hear it...…?
But the two didn't care a bit.
"Chung-Myung아. You have to understand with your heart."
"Yes, Chung-Myung has a great heart!"
Chung-Myung's features were very hectic. His ears were red and his eyes were wide open to hold back his laughter, his nostrils were flaring, and he had to press the corners of his mouth, which kept going up without noticing, and he had a lot of trouble.
Chung-Myung, who coughed loudly, finally nodded quietly.
"I can't help it."
Then he shrugged.
"Well…… it's not the disciple's right to ask if it's because Jang was trying to do well."
Then, the sound of what he has done so far has risen to his throat, but thanks to Hyun Jong's deep patience, he was able to avoid a situation that popped out of his mouth.
"He, he is. As expected, our Chung-Myung is a pottery."
"Hehe. Come to think of it, when I first came to Hwasan, the writer said that."
"It was crazy……."
"Ahahahaha! Oh, my long man must be very tired!"
Hyun Sang and Hyun Young almost simultaneously blocked Hyun Jong's mouth and pulled it back.
"Hush!"Hyun Jong's eyes were watering because he couldn't keep the proverb that he had to speak even though his mouth was crooked.
Chung-Myung, who was watching the scene, got up from his seat and snuck out his stomach. Baek-ah, who was in Chung-Myung's arms, also leaned her head through her collar and looked elated.
Now you can't help but go to the grain.
"I have a lot to say, but I'm in a hurry, so I'll start right away."
"Oh, yeah, Chung-Myung."
"And next time...….Sigh……. No. What's the point of saying it? I have to understand."
"Uh! Uh! Uh! Uh!"
"From now on, I ask you to make a smarter decision, Jang."
Chung-Myung shook his head and bent over.
"Then I'll be right back."
"Okay. Have a safe trip."
"Hahaha. Jang seems to be happy, too. Would it be good enough to do this shoulder dance? Haha, please stay still! Hahahaha!"
Chung-Myung, who saw the scene of confusion and joy, smiled and went outside.
Unam asked bitterly when she saw him with a refreshing face.
"How did it go?”
"I'll be back from the Chang River, student."
"……OK. Go ahead."
Looking at the back of Chung-Myung, who had already become distant, the steps seemed to be very cheerful. At that time, a desperate scream came from behind Unam's back.
"Hit me! Stop it all, you bastards! Tell him not to go!"
"Oh, please stay still!"
"The older he gets, the more immature he is, aye!"
Listening to the three people squabbling, Unam slowly lowered his head.
"Yes, boarding house."
"Cover your ears...….”
After many twists and turns, the Mangjong, who pushed his meanness into both cheeks, set off brightly toward the Janggang River.
