At the beginning of the afternoon class, Kang Chan was sitting inside the counseling room with Teacher Seok Kang Ho.
Seok Kang Ho glanced at Kang Chan’s sighs.
“You can’t smoke in the counseling room…”
“Don’t talk informally.”
Seok Kang Ho raised his angular chin. When he saw Kang Chan’s sharp eyes, he smacked his lips and dropped his gaze.
It’s going crazy.
Dayeru is Seok Kang Ho’s, that’s not it. Should Seok Kang Ho be said to be Dayeru’s alter ego?
Anyway, that guy is this guy.
The timing was also similar.
Except that Dayeru was in his wife’s arms while Kang Chan was in the hospital. Thanks to that, he would have been walking in Hong Kong1I think I had read it somewhere it’s a metaphor for sex, but I forgot. I’ll update the footnote when I found the right reference~ every night with his wife, so Kang Chan suddenly became sarcastic.
“Is it good?”
“What… is it, sir?”
“To be in your wife’s arms.”
“I am old and it’s not so good. But that’s why there are no regrets for Asian women even if the strange tasted wives die.”2I don’t know. Erai! *pull out innocent card*
“Era, this sicko.”
“That. Someone will hear, sir.”
As the situation got so twisted, Seok Kang Ho seemed to want to change the topic quickly.
“By the way. Are you really going to quit school, sir?”
“I’ve said I’m going to France!”
“Are you going to enter that hell again?”
Kang Chan gathered his lips and tapped the table with his index finger.
“It was strange. There must be a guy who talked secretly. But if the reason and why it’s like that not revealed, I can’t stay still because I witnessed those who have died unfairly.”
“Let’s go on vacation.”
Seok Kang Ho was rolling his eyes following his old habit.
“It’s a vacation in a month and a half. Let’s go with me then. I will be of help if it’s during the vacation.”
“Are we going for a picnic?”
“Then how to do it, sir? My age is too much to be accepted.”
“You just live here. You have a wife, have a stable job, what’s the problem?”
Seok Kang Ho swept his head with his big hand as if frustrated.
There’s the thing about the age. But rather than that, it was clear that he was attached to this place as Kang Chan said.
To his wife and children. This guy had already taken it to the heart of what he has now in that short moment. Well, he was a lonely guy.
“Do you remember how to speak Algerian?”
“Strangely, my Algerian is still intact even though I spoke Korean naturally so I was so flustered at first.”
So that’s like that.
“Don’t be like that and let’s go on vacation. I wanted to take care of a few guys and it’s about to explode, so the time will be right if we solve them enough.”
Seok Kang Ho struck his chest a couple of times with his palm.
“Because the guys you saw today are originally an alliance. But there are gangster guys behind them, so even if it wasn’t, I was trying to catch them.”3A bit confused with this sentence so… Will try to review it later.
Kang Chan smirked.
“Uh? It’s really not a joke though.”
“Noisy. Are you saying you’re dealing with kids because you have nothing to do?”
“You saw it today. They’re a student in name but what they’re doing is completely like local thugs. So, let’s just say you’re going to do something good. Right just until vacation starts. How is it?”
“You said you were going to do it?”
“That’s because I’m a teacher. The moment I get caught, isn’t it a criminal charge for abuse? I have to wear a mask. There are a lot of things that get stuck.”
Kang Chan tilted his head.
“Are you really Dayeru?”
“Why is it? Otherwise, how do I know God of Blackfield?”
“But why did you become so picky?”
“I don’t want to be born again then go into prison. So, that’s why.”
That could be the case.
“Will you help, sir?”
“Bring a cigarette here.”
Seok Kang Ho got up from his seat with a welcoming face.
There was no problem with the period.
That didn’t mean he was going to fight chick-like kids.
As Kang Chan looked at the window of the counseling room, Seok Kang Ho returned and pulled the sofa to block the door.
“The counseling room is a place where girls also come and go, so the door can’t be locked.”
“Oh right! There’s a bitch I slapped earlier, did you handle it well?”
“Isn’t that gal just like going out of a bar, right?”
“I think so too.”
“Since it has become her daily life, there won’t be much trouble. I looked enough at the other guys and sent them to the hospital. They have weapons in the group, so they won’t be able to retaliate too much. When I said that, as a teacher, it seems like I want it to be covered.”
Kang Chan smoked a cigarette without a word.
“Because we’ll go on vacation after a month.”
Seok Kang Ho’s expression was so sorrowful that Kang Chan couldn’t refuse.
“If I don’t get kicked out then let’s do that. Instead, I’ll stop dealing with the kids.”
In front of Seok Kang Ho, who was regretful, Kang Chan emitted a long cigarette smoke again.
Life will go it’s way no matter what.
Seok Kang Ho’s efforts were all in vain due to a report from the hospital. Because there were so many patients with stab wounds, the emergency room reported it according to the regulations.
It was already the second time that Kang Chan came to school and a patrol car was dispatched. When asked to take him to the district office, Seok Kang Ho insisted by writing a guarantee, so Kang Chan was able to get a record at the counseling room.
“What the hell are you, seriously?”
The policeman, who had received the record, frowned at him with a tired expression. He knew that ten people who waited with weapons lured him to the rooftop, but it was difficult to believe what happened next.
He smacked his lips bitterly and looked at a fellow seated by him.
“Let’s hand it over?”
“Then this guy will be kicked. There is a lot of unfairness.”
“If you do something wrong, you might get hurt trying to cover it up.”
It was then that Seok Kang Ho, who was paying attention, stepped up.
“Hospital fee will be borne by us, and I will take responsibility as a teacher so that victims do not sue. I hope it can be handled properly.”
“I know what sir teacher means. But if the time when people enter the bathroom and when they come out is different, my neck will fly away. There are so many injured children and we don’t know what their parents will do.”
“Which parent would like to see their child be cut off from school? And as you can see from the life records here, this kid was originally an introvert and nice guy. He’s been in the hospital for over a month due to an accident and it said to have delusions. When you were in school, wouldn’t there be a teacher you really appreciated?”
The two policemen smacked again and looked at the record.
“It’s a retaliatory assault. Although there are many, the children who are hospitalized are the so-called bullies guys, so there will be no separate charges. If there is a problem, I will quit teaching.”
“You don’t have to do that, sir teacher.”
“How would I abandon these disciples and call myself a teacher?”
Seok Kang Ho’s cheeks were twitching as if he had gritted his teeth inside the angular jaw.
“Hmm. Can you really make sure they won’t sue?”
“I will take responsibility for that. Nothing would have happened if the hospital had not reported.”
The police in charge was staring at Kang Chan with his lips tightly closed despite the worried gaze of his subordinate.
“Can you promise never to do this again?”
Kang Chan gritted his teeth tightly to resist the laughter coming out.
“That’s right, kiddo. Seeing the teacher you understand it, right? Teacher saved you and you know next? You know you should be sorry?”4I don’t really understand this. So sorry if it’s a bit ambiguous.
Rather than wanting to go to school, it was the answer he was sorry for Kang Dae Kyung and Yoo Hye Sook.
“Sir teacher. Then I will go to the hospital to meet the victims. If those children sign that they will not sue, I will just pretend it didn’t happen. Instead of injured by fighting, please make some other good excuse.”
“Thank you. Thank you so much. Then I will go to the hospital first and put the children in place. Thank you very much.”
“Aren’t it difficult to teach the children nowadays? Seeing sir teacher reminded me of the teacher who cared about me in the past, so today I was determined too. Please make sure to avoid any problems in the future.”
As the police stood up, Seok Kang Ho also stood up. So what to do if the atmosphere is like that.
Kang Chan stood up from the seat with his gaze dropped, standing by Seok Kang Ho.
“Be patient, kid. Even if someone annoys you later, remember your teacher’s grace and be patient. Understand?”
What will the police look like if they hear Seok Kang Ho’s request to beat the bullies? Kang Chan gritted his teeth again and replied seriously.
“Then I’ll trust sir teacher. I’ll be going to the hospital in about two hours. I have to tell them that it’s not an assault because it was reported to the reporting center. If that doesn’t work, I can’t do anything.”
“If they had tried to report, would the children stay put until the hospital reported? You really don’t have to worry about that. Thank you.”
“I’m impressed that there is someone like sir teacher. Well, then.”
After the two policemen left, Kang Chan plopped into the seat.
Seok Kang Ho went out to send the two off and returned shortly afterward.
“Go to the classroom.”
“Go back to take the lesson?”
“I have to go to the hospital. And above all, haven’t you been here too long?”
“Your words are getting shorter and shorter?”5Informal speak is shorter. So as Seok Kang Ho speak informally, Kang Chan referred to this.
“Hmhmm. I have some age, and let’s just go over this.”
Kang Chan ended up smirking. Anyway, even originally Dayeru was one year older than him. And he didn’t even want to hear more respect than this.
Kang Chan was forced to head to the classroom.
The classroom was quiet because the lesson was ongoing.
As he opened the door and entered, gazes rushed in at once.
Lee Ho Jun was turning his surprised face quickly.
Even the female teacher, who was around the mid-30s, couldn’t say anything and was paying attention to Kang Chan. He slowly sat in his seat and looked at the teacher.
“Ah, let’s continue the lesson.”
The teacher proceeded with the lesson as if she had woken up from hypnosis.
It was Japanese class, but it talked about Cheol Su, who entered a snowy village, that seemed to be teasing the owner by asking for the price of udon and set meals that he wouldn’t eat.
It was much better than math, but he was similarly blank.
Class is over.
After the teacher hurried out and the sound of the chair sounded loud, a male student stood up in the front paying attention to Kang Chan in sloppy posture.
The break time was also stiff.
Kang Chan smacked his lips and leaned back on the chair.
The children who went to the toilet moved with a solemn and majestic attitude, like the priests of the monastery.
At that time, Lee Ho Jun came to Kang Chan’s side.
When he looked sharply, the jerk put a can of juice and bread on his desk.
Is this guy really rotten to the bones?
Kang Chan looked at Lee Ho Jun with a ridiculous gaze.
“After class, the first and second graders will greet you.”
Regardless of Kang Chan’s gaze, the jerk said what he wanted to say.
“Take this back.”
Pressed by Kang Chan’s eyes, confused Lee Ho Jun moved to his place with the juice and bread. As everyone was watching, a great deal of tension crushed the classroom.
It was when Kang Chan let out a small sigh because he was also feeling cramped.
Feeling the attention of the children, Kang Chan looked back casually.
They were female students.
One of them is an acquaintance.
She had a swollen left cheek.
“Hey! Kang Chan!”
A girl who walked completely ignoring Lee Ho Jun stood by his side. She had three female students behind her with childish makeup as if it was written ‘fly’ on her forehead.
“Take some time after you have done.”
“Don’t mess with me. Go.”
Kang Chan got up from his seat and stood toward the girl. There was a sharp smell of cosmetics.
The students’ bravado and the threatening look that Kang Chan gave off were completely different, so the girl only had a resentful face and couldn’t open her mouth.
The chick’s gaze snapped at Kang Chan’s right hand. It was certain that she was afraid he would slap her.
This thing happened a lot in France, too.
There was a time when the beaten-up guy’s lover approached with a hidden iron ring in the hand, bringing a finger-length awl stuck in hair, or even a woman who took off her clothes.
If let it slide, definitely will be in trouble.
‘Should I also make this doesn’t cause any more trouble?’
He felt strangely weak when he saw them wearing a school uniform.
‘This is not a battlefield.’
Wouldn’t it be nice to let it slide a little?
However, Kang Chan decided not to do so. It was because he knew how much a girl like that was harassing the same girls.
He made up his mind.
If she speaks just one more word…
But the chick turned her short knife as if she had eaten Kang Chan’s thoughts. The three in the back gave Kang Chan an absurd look, but that’s about it.
Kang Chan sat down while smacking lips and made eye contact with melon-chested Snow White under the bangs.
Such a hassle.
He wanted to go to France quickly, go through the procedure, and go to Africa. He never thought he would miss the dust and bullets in his life.
The class ended after another two hours of perseverance.
It was when Kang Chan exhaled a sigh of relief.
Dozens of children rumbled through the front door of the classroom. They immediately lined up in three rows in front of Kang Chan, then bowed to the waist in order from the front row.
Wanted to cry.
It was even more so for these guys to go to school and the one to be greeted like this.
No matter how much they were beaten, they disappeared after saying the same greetings to his words, like mongrel waving their tails.
I missed home.
Kang Chan got up quickly and put his bag on his shoulder.
“Let’s go together.”
Then a careful voice was heard.
At a glance, it was Snow White.
“Aren’t you going home?”
Is it the same direction?
Kang Chan said nothing. He didn’t know how to use public transportation properly, so he thought it might help.
Kang Chan walked ahead and melon-chested Snow White followed.
It was when he left the back door.
The chick, who was slapped before, leaned against the wall, folded her arms, and stared at him. The three folding screens standing in the back roughly scan Snow White from top and to the bottom.
Kang Chan had no reason to care, but Snow White was seemed terrified.
It was clearly a warning heard in Kang Chan’s ears.
Snow White couldn’t even raise her eyes properly and looked at the floor.
However, it wasn’t like they directly pick a fight with Kang Chan.
He didn’t know why the chick who was slapped is catching up like this, but he can’t beat someone who just standing.
While going down the stairs, the children who recognized Kang Chan hurriedly clung to the wall and opened the way. There was even a guy pulling a friend who hadn’t seen him because they were ahead.
He’s not even an infectious disease patient.
Although he felt bitter, Kang Chan pretended not to know and went down the stairs.
As he exited the building, there was a long procession of children next to the playground.
“Are you going to the academy6학원(hakwon). Private educational institute, where to get additional lessons or courses. In this one, Snow White refers to academic one which also teaches the same lesson as a school but usually different teaching method. Many Korean students go to hakwon to increase their exam scores.?”
“Byeoksang. Are you not going to go?”
Is the academy’s name Byeoksang?
As they walked toward the main gate, Snow White seemed to feel at ease. It was clear that she did not know that Kang Chan’s nerves were on edge.
“I think Eun Sil targeted you.”
“What else is Eun Sil?”
“Eun Sil! The girl who was waiting in the hallway.”
“Be careful. It said she sleeps with boys.”
Is that something to be careful about.
‘She’ll faint when she sees the French kids.’
The thought was just until there.
As he turned to leave the main gate, four large men in black suits were staring at him.
A kid in a school uniform was next to the big man and quickly disappeared between the children.
‘This is better than Africa.’
Kang Chan checked the black car parked on the side of the road and saw the four big men again.
“Hey, come here.”
A bulky man crumpled his thick cheek and raised his hand curving the index finger.
Kang Chan first walked in front of him.
Snow White couldn’t even move and students were crowded around him.
After glancing over the students with an annoyed face, he looked at Kang Chan.
“Are you Kang Chan?”
“Fucking bastard talking back.”7With the heavy respect culture in Korea. Of course talking back to someone older is impolite.
It was the look of a person who had broken people.
What to look out from a gang…
‘Right! There’s no gun in Korea.’
He felt much more at ease.
“It’s nice. But we need to go, kiddo. Get on quietly.”
The man shook his head and pointed to the car.
“Fucking bastard. Don’t make me annoyed and get on fast?”
It was when Kang Chan smirked.
“Oppa!”8Older brother from female perspective. May for real older brother or other older male, example boyfriend. Also used to call a boyfriend although the age maybe not older than the female.
The smell of cosmetics he had smelled twice passed by his side.
It was the chick named Eun Sil.
If you don’t clean up properly, you will get in trouble again like now.
The chick named Eun Sil twisted her pelvis strangely and stood with paired legs. It means she is confident.
The man looked at Eun Sil and pointed at the car.
“This bastard, you too get on right now!”
Then he growled at Kang Chan.
