Whatever influence my words had, Seo Eun-soo became as relaxed as a sparrow who was full as a mill grain. His dark expression cleared up and became as fresh as a clear sky.

 

‘It’s a relief if he’s cheered up.’

 

Until earlier, I thought he would cry if I touched him, but I was relieved to see him helping me with farming with a smile.

 

When I saw that, I couldn’t believe that the reason he stayed wasn’t because of farming.

 

‘Honestly, if it’s not farming, what’s the reason to stay here? No matter how cute General is, I don’t think that’s why.’

 

Seeing Seo Eun-soo humming Lululala and working with a peachy cheek, I felt even more energized.

 

Whatever the occasion, it was a pleasure to have a colleague to farm with. As a young person, I don’t know how long my interest in farming will last, but there was no reason to stop if I liked it purely.

 

Since it has already become like this, I wanted it to be maintained for a long time, rather than be a flash of interest that flashes and then disappears.

 

‘There are few people who want to farm at a young age.’

 

Before coming down here, I found out by searching blogs or YouTube channels of farmers on the Internet. That there was still a shortage of young labor in the countryside.

 

Sometimes, there would be an unusual young farmer who could come up as a topic of conversation, but it was very few. Young people my age wanted to go to college and settle in the city, if possible, in the metropolitan area.

 

‘So did my brothers and sisters.’

 

So there were people who were dissatisfied with their parents and cried secretly at night. It was a story from my childhood.

 

When I grew up, I was surprised to see if that happened, but I could tell from the side. That they were pretending to be okay.

 

Maybe that’s why. My brothers and sisters really wanted me to get better. Hoping I would get my hands on the freedom they couldn’t have and fly away like they wanted.

 

But what I wanted was to be with my family in the landscape of farming…….

 

I felt like my heart was going to explode, so I spoke seriously to Seo Eun-soo.

 

“Seo Eun-soo ssi.”

 

“Yes?”

 

Seo Eun-soo intervened among the gongs and was moving the fruit tree together.

 

It was not a young seedling, but the fruit tree I bought from the orchard with the determination to harvest it this year was strong and heavy because it was already grown. Even the roots were magnificent.

 

I felt bitter as I saw the five alphas moving it.

 

‘Is this why Seo Eun-soo said I was thin……?.’

 

This was not David and Goliath. [1] I was a little discouraged because of the difference in power.

 

“Don’t be prepared to do anything sloppy when it comes to farming.”

 

“Yes?”

 

“The fact that you decided to stay here means that Seo Eun-soo has finally learned the true taste of farming. Yes? In this way, the number of competitors is increasing. It’s good for farmers.”

 

If you farm with that look and run a YouTube channel or blog, you will surely be able to make a hit. It will be a win-win strategy that satisfies consumers and sellers if they sell their own agricultural products on Internet shopping malls, using themselves as a promotional model.

 

I already saw Seo Eun-soo walking into the future as a prosperous farmer in my head.

 

“Wait, Chan-young ssi? I didn’t nag you because I wanted to stay with that intention.”

 

“Then why did you want to stay at my house? There’s nothing else to do besides farm in the countryside.”

 

It’s my house. Secretary Choi prepared various game consoles and small entertainment for hobbies so that I don’t get bored, but this wasn’t the case for a typical country house.

 

A neighborhood where there are many elderly people who live mostly on agricultural products. If I was bored, the only place to go was the village hall.

 

“That’s……. I can’t say. For now.”

 

“Will it be difficult to ask more?”

 

I don’t know what he was up to, but he didn’t seem to want to reveal it, so I didn’t ask him any more.

 

Seo Eun-soo put the fruit tree in the hole he dug as hard as he could. The moistened roots were vivid.

 

“I want to stay forever if it’s farming with Chan-young.”

 

I heard Seo Eun-soo like this. The part-time job here is so sweet that he wants to stay.

 

“Seo Eun-soo also learned the taste of capital.”

 

Yes. That’s possible. I almost fainted when I saw the limitless black card of Seong Chan-young, too.

 

I understand it by myself, but Chae Yoon-chan, who was moving fruit trees with Seo Eun-soo, wore a frowning expression [2] .

 

“…… Seo Eun-soo, are you crazy?”

 

What’s wrong with him? I was more surprised to see Chae Yoon-chan’s hostility, which left a slight impression on Seo Eun-soo, who became an alpha.

 

Seo Eun-soo, on the other hand, remained calm. Just like he expected Chae Yoon-chan to react like that.

 

“For what? I have never heard anything like that from Chae Yoon-chan before.”

 

“If you say it like that, Seong Chan-young will misunderstand.”

 

“What misunderstand?”

 

“You…….it’s done. Don’t say that again. Don’t do that to Seong Chan-young with a light heart.”

 

Did Chae Yoon-chan have pride as a professional farmer? It was exciting.

 

“Did you realize the true taste of farming when you turned him into a farming slave?”

 

Then I should roll more because I’m so proud.

 

If you’re telling me not to farm with a light heart, I told you that earlier. I didn’t expect Chae Yoon-chan to be worried.

 

“Ah. Are you worried that I will turn Seo Eun-soo into a farming slave?”

 

I could admit it if that’s the case. The gongs didn’t go to their house, so I was the one rolling on the dirt.

 

“It’s okay to misunderstand.”

 

“What?”

 

“That’s what I’m saying. Chae Yoon-chan. I don’t think you know why I’m doing this.”

 

“You really…… changed. You’ve changed a lot. You didn’t do this before you turned into an alpha.”

 

“No. I was originally this kind of person, but I’m sure you didn’t know about it.”

 

Seo Eun-soo, who responded coyly, left the shocked Yoon-chan alone and covered the roots of the tree with dirt. It was very pleasant to spread the roots wide so that the planted trees would not be damaged and cover them carefully with soil between them.

 

‘The atmosphere of the conversation between the two is fierce.’

 

I was the only one in between and faltering. For whatever reason, Chae Yoon-chan and Seo Eun-soo were arguing for the first time.

 

‘I don’t think it’s a love fight……. What’s wrong with those two?’

 

“I don’t think Chae Yoon-chan is in a position to say anything to me either. Don’t you feel the same way as me? When you look at Seong Chan-young.”

 

“Ah! It’s not like that!”

 

Chae Yoon-chan’s ears turned red. His skin was white, so it was obvious that it was bright red, like a ripe tomato.

 

‘Did he mean that he enjoy his slave life here?’

 

What does he mean by saying he feels the same way as Seo Eun-soo? Did he mean he found his aptitude here? Chae Yoon-chan doesn’t like farming, even if he’s good at it.

 

Chae Yoon-chan desperately responded to Seo Eun-soo’s words in front of me, who was confused.

 

“The one I like…… is you. That’s why I stayed.”

 

“That’s a lie. He stayed because he was worried about Seong Chan-young. Don’t use me as an excuse. It’s a contradiction if he’s still there because he really likes me. If that’s the case, there’s a chance they could go away with just me.”

 

“…….”

 

“Chae Yoon-chan, you’re probably similar to me after all. So are the other alphas.”

 

Due to Seo Eun-soo’s consecutive remarks, Chae Yoon-chan’s complexion turned blue and returned to its original state. He looked resigned.

 

“……What if you’re right?”

 

“I can’t lose. I’m also an alpha with a strong desire to be exclusive.”

 

“I didn’t expect that the alpha trait would be mentioned in the topic of mutations that have undergone transformation.”

 

“Is it so? Instead, it would be better to show my true colors like this. Don’t pretend to worry about someone you don’t even like anymore.”

 

“I guess this is why Joo Tae-kang is wary of you. We thought you were a rabbit but you turned out to be a fox.”

 

“Think as you please. I don’t want to know what kind of person I was, so stop talking about it.”

 

‘This…… It’s a good thing for me, right?’

 

In the original work, the two people, who would have had a ticklish exchange while flirting, were relieved and wondering as they growled at the same time.

 

‘I know it’s uncomfortable because Seo Eun-soo became an alpha…… Why do they have to fight over that?’

 

There was no such thing from my memory. There was no medium for those two to confront, but it was strange.

 

“Look, I don’t know what you’re fighting for.”

 

“We didn’t fight.”

 

“We didn’t fight. Chan-young ssi.”

 

You just had a fight. What do you mean no?

 

“Yes, yes. I’ll say you didn’t fight, so can’t we stop chatting and instead concentrate on transplanting the remaining fruit trees? I have to plant them all by the end of the day.”

 

Originally, I wanted to plant fruit trees as soon as I received them, but it was very late now. I had a cold and fainted, so I couldn’t help it. But I didnd;t want to cause any more disruptions because it was my work.

 

“Let’s work well until sunset, alright? I know Seo Eun-soo is also farming from the bottom of his heart, so please work hard.”

 

Meanwhile, Joo Tae-kang, Yoo Yi-seo, and Baek Do-jun were already finishing a line like a machine. Chae Yoon-chan and Seo Eun-soo’s line was the most underperforming.

 

“You two, are you going to spend all your time there?”

 

Joo Tae-kang attracted their attention. It was a childish provocation, but it seemed to work very well for Chae Yoon-chan. Especially when he saw him picking up a fruit tree with his agile and energetic movements.

 

“Just wait and see. I’ll be done in a minute.”

 

“I’m going to finish it first. After this, with Chan-young…….”

 

“I will definitely finish faster than you.”

 

Suddenly, the scene turned into a sports cartoon.

 

‘Is this also a kind of expression of affection?’

 

Slipping away between the two energetic people, I went to rest with General.

 

“General, do you know what the hell is wrong with those humans?”

 

“Wow, woof.”

 

General only waved his tail in front of me, pretending otherwise. These days, I think General is a genius dog who understands me.
