IT IS CALLED FATE
“Jiwon hyung! Where have you been?I’ve been waiting for you so long,”a faint smile was carved in his face. ’His smile hasn’t changed’ I thought as I examined him from head to toe. I can’t help but grimace over his look now. His chubby cheeks were now full of scars. His hands were bandaged and there was still a glimpse of blood spot over it. His silky hair that I used to touch now has become ragged. And the saggy khaki uniform that’s looked unwashed for ages covered his fragile thin body. He looks miserable with his dim eyes, and I can’t help but to feel guilty over him. ‘It’s all my fault,if only you hadn’t met me,’ I thought as my eyes once again staring at his face outside prison bars, ‘I’m sorry, Sunghoonah.’
“But, mom! I am thirteen now. You see ‘teen’ word at the back of thirteen. It means I have been old enough to take care of myself. And you have seen me for years that I have been more matured than my peers. You know it well, mom,” I determined not to let my argument lost. I have to win. “But dear, you just visited it once, you don’t know how tough that place inside,” my mother answered as she was preparing meal. “Mom, come on! It’s not like I live by myself there. There is Aunt Yuri that can look after me as I was studying there. Aunt Yuri has been agreed about it too mom,” I replied as I follow my mother into the kitchen. “And doesn’t all moms in the world want the best for their kids? Going to America is the best thing for me, mom!” I again insisted as I sat down in a couch.
”Yah, Yoonji, help me please,” I whispered to my sister that was playing with her barbie in the carpet. Yoonji turn around and smiled at me. “Yeah, mom. Let Sunghoon oppa go so I can have the bedroom all by myself and live my life with peace,”said Yoonji as she stuck her tongue out to me. I rolled my eyes at her. Thanks for the help, Yoonjiah. “If I said no, there is no other answer Hoonah,”my mother answered firmly. Huh. I know that it will make me look stubborn, but it’s not Kang Sung hoon if he doesn’t have strong determination. If I said I will go to America, I will go.
“Have fun there oppa! I hope you can stay there for a long long time,” Yoonji pestered a wide grin as my mother and her waving their hands at me. I rolled my eyes at her remarks. You can say what you want Yoonjiah, but in the end you will hug my photo every night while missing me like crazy. Yeah a bit narcissistic is not a problem. To be honest, I’m kind of feel guilty leaving my mom and my sister by themselves, my parents has been divorced couple of years ago so I’m unconsciously feel a bit of responsible for them as I’m the only man in the family.As I let out a deep sigh I’m making my way towards the plane gate. You did the right thing, Sunghoonah. Now,let the real journey start!
“What is this again, Jiwonah! Why can’t you let your mom be happy for just a while! What did you do now that make me receive letter from school again!” I can see my mother’s furious eyes now. She still looks scary when she’s angry. But I’m getting used to her scolding. “It’s not that deep mom. I’m just missing a few attendances,” I answered as I cast down one’s eyes. Actually I’m not completely lying, it is one of the reason but not the main one. “Just a few? I bet a few from you equals a month for me. Why haven’t you changed Jiwonah? Don’t you realize from what family background you came?” I rolled my eyes. Again with the family background. Many people think that having powerful connection will get you fortune but for me, it was just a useless burden to deal with. But, on the other side, I’m kind of relieved that my mother actually believed my reason. It’s not like she will come to school to fulfill the summon herself, so she will not found out the true reason behind this letter. Now I’m just going to bribe my “guardian” so she can keep her mouth closed from telling the truth.
“Today, I will drive you to school. That’s the way I can make sure you won’t get on trouble again,” she said as she pick up a car key and get into Jaguar XJ220, her expensive supercar that she has brought just a week ago. Thinking of bragging,huh? “What? Oh no mom definitely a big no for me. I rather walk out by foot than being driven by you. I promise I will attend school now, I promise!” I ranted out words in panic. It’s not that my rejection is out of reasons though.
The thing is, nobody knows my real mom is, actually nobody even know my real family is. I was kind of being casted out to this island called Hawaii since I was in middle school because I didn’t performed well and was part of the school gang. That’s why my father decide to send me off to Hawaii to be a “better” person as he said, but I know he just doesn’t want to be embarrassed of his son’s “wrong-doings.” That is possible because in my family, pride is number one. My father is a well-known businessman in Korea and a founder of Eun company, a multinational company that works on cosmetic stuff while my mother was a well known Korean singer in the 70’s. Recently my father has joined politic with his sister, being her sponsor for upcoming mayor election. And maybe the most extraordinary one is my granduncle, he is one of former South Korean president.
And because of that, many people in my school believe that my “guardian” is my real mother, and the guardian that I reffered to is my nanny. Yeah, It’s kind of embarrassing that at my age I still have nanny by my side. The truth is, I’m used to her because she has been taking care of me since I was a baby, even more than my real mom. She was actually one of the requirement from me in agreeing moving to Hawaii. I told my parent that I won’t leave if my nanny isn’t going with me. Yeah, I’m such a nanny boy.
That’s why I’m really freak out when my mom decided to drive me to school. It became worse at the fact that my mom isn’t dressing like mothers in general. She looks quite young for her age and really fashionable. I also look really different from her, I’m more in dad’s side. I have been called noona hooker for times, I don’t want to be called cougar hunter or ahjumma chaser to make it worse.
One thing that resemble me from my mother, it is stubbornness. Because of her stubbornness, I ended up slouching myself down on the front seat hoping no one saw me on the way. But thank God my mother letting me easy by dropping me off in the eastside of school gate, the gate that rarely student went through because it was kind of spooky. Now, I just have to get out and run away. “Hold on,” my mom grab my wrist. “I want to give you some cash for you to hangout,” Huh, it’s not like I have a friend to hang out with. But, no one can reject money, right? She get out of the car and open my door. “Now, before I lend you some money, give me a kiss,” my mom said as she touched her cheek. I turn my head to the left and right checking if there is someone watching us and then reluctantly give her a peck in her left cheek. Ugh, so embarrassing. “Ah, that’s my boy,” my mom began cupping my cheek, kissing me hard on both side marking my cheek with her pierce red lipstick, and drive home. Thank God there’s no one insight.
But my though was wrong. As I began to walk my way to school gate, I heard a loud noise from behind bushes. That’s when I found out a boy has watching me from afar. Oh, crap! He must have been there since my mother drop me off. I tried to calm myself and thinking of a way to negotiate with him. I have got several bad reputations to deal with, I don’t want to get another. At this rate, I will not getting any closer with my crush. ”Excuse me,” I said as I walking my ways towards him. And to my surprise, he ran away. Not thinking straight, I began to chase him.
‘O, CRAP, he’s still following me!’ I though to myself as I speeding my run. Actually it’s not my fault that I have to watch that disgusted scene. I’m still fresh off the boat, yet he gives me such a culture shock. How in the world a boy that look like my age make out with woman in her late 30s, she can be his mother for goodness’ sake! Thank God I just watch his back so I don’t know the detail of that “make out” session, if not, my innocence would be ruined! ‘Now I just have to find a place to hide,’ I though to myself, still running. Few seconds later I found an empty room that look like a storeroom. I quickly close the door and hide behind the door. My relief was not lasted long though as I heard a man’s voice screaming. “WHAT THE HECK!”
That's when I know I am in a real danger.
Thanks for your fanfic! Love the start!
