I was perplexed by the two people’s expressions of dissatisfaction, but I went through the discharge procedure and changed back into plain clothes instead of patient clothes, like I said I wanted.


‘General must have been surprised.’


I wanted to go back quickly whenever I thought of General, who would stay home alone and wait for me. According to Chairman Seong, it was General who barked while scratching the door when I was suffocating. 


As expected, there was no pet as loyal and lovely to its owner as a dog. When I go back, I’m going to head to Chairman Seong and Baek Do-jun with the intention of holding a snack and a walk party with General, but as soon as I came out of the patient clothing, someone grabbed me.


“Is this deja vu…….’


“Are you sane? Why are you trying too hard to go already?”


It was Joo Tae-kang who caught me. He grabbed me hard from the first meeting, and it was not surprising that he grabbed me all of a sudden again and said what he had to say first.


Chae Yoon-chan, Yoo Yi-seo, and Seo Eun-soo were also standing behind Joo Tae-kang. Standing in one space with four handsome men, I felt the attention of others.


“Put this down and we’ll talk.”


“Ah. I’m sorry if I hurt you. I apologize.”


“……It’s not like that.”


What’s different from then is that this time he was careful as if he were holding a newborn chick without holding it harshly. It was more embarrassing than the feeling that this person finally put courtesy on the table.


‘What’s wrong with him?’


It really didn’t suit him. Be nicer to Seo Eun-soo instead. You used to be a bad boy. I’m the one who knows what you did with Seo Eun-soo’s “stolen” stuff, and I get the most goosebumps when you act like a human being.


‘How dare you pretend to be a normal person…….’


“Did I do something wrong again?”


I changed the subject because I didn’t want to answer. Joo Tae-kang’s being worried about me was weird.


“No. Rather than that, why did you all come to the hospital? I’m fine.”


“……No one would think you’re okay if they saw you struggling in agony as if you were strangled.”


Chae Yoon-chan, who came with Joo Tae-kang, shook his head. The fair blonde strands fluttered with the movement.


“Yes! You should be admitted to the hospital. As expected, it was impossible to farm with a sick body.”


“I told you I’m fine. Chairman Seong and Baek Do-jun also agreed.”


I will cut in on you here.


“You don’t call him grandfather, but when you talk to others, you call him chairman.”


“……Don’t talk too much. Just move on.”


“If I don’t catch something like this, you won’t deal with me. I’m a little sad that you’re treating me worse than a dog you have at home.”




If you were me, would you want to talk for a long time with a guy who pretends to be normal? If General is the sky, you are not just the earth but the inner core of the earth, or the underworld.


I looked at Seo Eun-soo because I was afraid that I would inadvertently get involved in his pace while talking to Yoo Yi-seo.


“I didn’t expect Seo Eun-soo to come here. I’m sorry you must have been eating.”


“Why are you so sweet to Seo Eun-soo?”


Be quiet, Joo Tae-kang. I’m talking right now.


Seo Eun-soo’s answer was somewhat surprising to me, who was slightly neglecting him.


“It wasn’t difficult. It’s food. We can eat later, but Chan-young looks very sick……. I was so worried that I followed.”


When I saw a beautiful man with his drooping shoulders and a sad face, I felt like I should apologize for my mistakes, so I asked out of curiosity.


“What am I to worry about so much? It didn’t happen because of Eun-soo. Don’t hesitate to go in.”


“Don’t you want me to pay attention to you?”




What nonsense is this? My brows were frowned upon.


But what surprised me was that I was the only one confused while Joo Tae-kang and Yoo Yi-seo were calm. Chae Yoon-chan only clapped his lips and then remained silent. Why are they so quiet even with Seo Eun-soo’s reaction?


“……No. I made a mistake. I was so worried about Chan-young that I said anything. Forget it, please.”




Seo Eun-soo, who spoke with a face that was more tired than me, was caught, but it was embarrassing to ask more questions when he said it was okay.


“So, are you sure you’re okay?”


“That’s what I’m saying. I’m going home right away. I didn’t expect all of them to follow me with this kind of stuff.”


Even Chae Yoon-chan was worried, so I tried to gloss over it as nothing, but the more I did, the more unusual the gongs’ reaction was.


“I thought you were really out of breath. How can you say you were alright…….”


With a serious face, and a low, subdued voice, the alphas stared at me. My saliva was swallowed up. Do gazelles hunted by lions feel this fear.?


No, I’m fine! Do I have to go around the gym to admit it?


“I, I said I’m all right. Let’s stop and go.”


“If you faint again…….”


“At that time, I said I would really come to the hospital for an examination, so leave it alone. If you have any complaints, tell grandfather.”


“……First of all, I get it.”


When I mentioned my promise to Chairman Seong, the gongs and Seo Eun-soo reluctantly accepted. You aren’t a child left on the water’s edge.


As a party, I was at a loss for an explanation. They’re not my guardians; they’re eating on forced excuses. What a fuss this is…….


‘What do you know about the subject of the diner?’


If you know, get out of my house. If I faint again, it’s not because of Seong Chan-young, but because of you guys.


“Go back home. I think I’ll have to eat dinner again, too.”


I was hungry, maybe because I ran out of energy even in my dream. When I called ajumma, she said that the food was still there, so there would be no shortage to go and eat.


“You’re here.”


“Are you guys here?”


Chairman Seong and Baek Do-jun, who had calculated the emergency room reception fee, also returned. I got into Baek Do-jun’s car with unnecessary help. I crumpled up in the back seat with Chairman Seong.


Since it was in the countryside, all I could see was a dark night road except for streetlights. I didn’t like the darkness like a dream, so I closed my eyes and waited to get home.


Chairman Seong snored and fell asleep as he was tired because he was relaxed. The wrinkled right hand held my left hand tightly and didn’t fall off. I thought Baek Do-jun would wake me up when I arrived, so I went to sleep.


“Tell me if you’re sick. Don’t suffer alone.”


Baek Do-jun’s sweet and hard voice was heard in my ears. I didn’t answer.


‘Even if you guys don’t say anything, I’ll go to the hospital on my own if I’m sick.’


Of course, it was annoying to think that I had to receive omega treatment under Chairman Seong’s strict protection. So I was going to protect my physical health no matter what.


‘You’ll never get my weak point.’


I didn’t want to bother them more. My head was about to explode even now.


Anyway, why did Sung Chan-young call me a thief in my dream? That was very strange.


⚝ ⚝ ⚝


When I returned home, general who was hanging around in front of the gate saw me and ran to hug me at once.


“Woof! Woof woof woof woof!”


“Oh, my dear. Were you lonely without dad?”


“I heard that the dog’s life is a reward……. Look at the world’s difference from when he’s talking to us.”


I heard Joo Tae-kang muttering bulgingly next to him, but I ignored him. I can’t hear you at all. I can’t hear you.




“Yes, yes. Good boy.”


General in his arms licked his face as if to express his sadness. I got a doggie punch too. At first glance, he looked small and cute, but it actually hurt a little because he was a dog with solid muscles all over his body due to steady walks.


“Ouch. Ouch. General, dad is sick. It really hurts.”




I knew that he was complaining because he was worried, so even if it hurt, I couldn’t help but smile. General complained more about whether he had become angry.


It was when I was unilaterally hitten with a dull cotton bat by General.


“Your master says he’s sick. Get away from him.”


Suddenly, General was lifted out of my arms and lowered to the floor. Both general and I were puzzled.




“……What is this, Baek Do-jun?”


The culprit was Baek Do-jun. It’s not Joo Tae-kang or Chae Yoon-chan. It’s Baek Do-jun. The other alphas looked at this side with interest, perhaps unexpectedly.


Baek Do-jun has always been a gentle handsome man with a neat appearance, but not at this moment.


Only eyebrows and closed lips that rose above the frowned forehead were added, but they even looked overbearing at first glance. He looked so angry that I couldn’t think of the usual sad impression.


“It’s true. You were in pain when you got hit by a dog. You pretend to be fine, but I still can’t believe you’re fine. So take care of yourself so that you don’t have to worry about it. Don’t go to the hospital in a hurry again during the night.”


The heck is he saying?


“Are you annoyed with me?”


Baek Do-jun has never been angry with me since he stayed here. Unlike when he treated him like a real Seong Chan-young at first, he was as quiet as a calm wave. He acted like someone who was genuinely worried about me and wanted to take me.


‘Did you get stressed because of Chan-young? Do you have a neurosis?’


I thought Baek Do-jun was angry simply because he remembered the time when he was serving as Seong Chan-young’s exclusive attendant.


‘Even so, I’m not happy with this kind of meddling.’


Perhaps because I was tired, I was able to talk back.


“Taking care of my health on your own, even if I didn’t say anything. Why are you being so sensitive about general’s whining?”


Didn’t I say it’s okay?


“I’m not annoyed rather……. never mind. No matter what I say, it won’t work. Because I have nothing to do with you now. Like you said.”




“I’m sorry for the temper tantrum. I’ll go in first.”


Baek Do-jun looked very hurt and disappeared into the house with his imaginary tail dropped.


What is this?


While I was standing blankly at the disappearing figure, Chairman Seong whispered next to me.


“I guess Chan-young resembles me. Hum hum.”


What does that mean? I don’t like it if you say I’m bad-tempered!

Author's Thoughts

Chan-young and Chairman Seong resembling each other is kinda unexpected but makes sense when you think about it.
It was so satisfying to see him standing up for himself!

P.S Many thanks to @chimichimi for the ko-fi! I really appreciate it.
Also, I cut my long waist-length hair to just below my ears yesterday and omg, I feel so free. xD
The hair was about 13 inches tall so I got pretty money from it and will be doing some donations from it.
Sorry if this was too long for a T/L note. I had many big things happened this week.
