“By the way…”

“Mm, speak.”

“How do I withdraw from this account? Since it's not under my name, I shouldn't be able to withdraw at will, no?” Kang Jin-Ho asked seriously.

Hwang Jeong-Hu ended up chuckling at that.
Did he need to explain such things, too? “There's the debit card, isn't it?”

want me to use this card?”

You'll be able to handle most matters with that.
Withdraw from an ATM if you need cold, hard cash, or visit the bank’s branch if you need more.
I've already spoken to the nearest branch from here, so you probably won't encounter any problems.”

“I see.” Kang Jin-Ho nodded again.
It certainly sounded like a logical way to handle this.

Hwang Jeong-Hu grinned.
“Then, I'll consider this as paying my dues for this month.
I'll deposit more after the next month's treatment.”

Kang Jin-Ho's eyes widened.
“You mean…
Another ten billion won?”

“Isn't that what we agreed upon?”

Kang Jin-Ho shook his head.
“For now, I'm fine with this.”

“You'll soon realize that it won't be enough, young man.
The more you have money, the more you’ll find reasons to spend it.
You'll see what I’m talking about soon enough.”

“When that happens, we'll talk again, then.” Kang Jin-Ho nodded.

“Huh, are you thinking of using me as your personal ATM?”

Kang Jin-Ho replied nonchalantly, “I'm already doing that, sir.”

Hwang Jeong-Hu raucously laughed.
“Hahaha! That's true!”

“However, I do have a couple of favors to ask you.”

Hwang Jeong-Hu's eyes briefly gleamed just then.
Favors like this would only serve to deepen the relationship between him and Kang Jin-Ho.
It was ultimately for Hwang Jeong-Hu's benefit, of course.

“Alright. Let's hear them.” 

Kang Jin-Ho got serious as he spoke, “There is a place called Seongsim Orphanage.”

“You mean, where your friend stays at?”

“I see that your investigation has been rather thorough, Chairman.”

Hwang Jeong-Hu grinned meaningfully.
“I have a rather capable man working for me, you see.”

“In any case…
That orphanage is constantly suffering from a severe lack of funds.
It doesn't sound like they are under heavy debt or anything like that, though, so can you help them by finding a new place or building for them to move into? Their current place isn't fit for people to stay.”

Hwang Jeong-Hu narrowed his eyes.
Now, this was unexpected; he found it strange that Kang Jin-Ho had such a side to him.
This young man looked like the type who wouldn’t be interested in other people's business, but…

“Hmm, a new place to move into, is it?”

“Yes, sir.”

Hwang Jeong-Hu rubbed his chin.
“Wouldn't it be better to just construct a new building?”

also fine.”

“Hmm. Doing so should be the simplest way to handle this.”

Kang Jin-Ho could only tut inwardly at the wealthy people's idea of a 'simple way.’ He then brought up his second favor.
“And this next one will be slightly more complicated…”

“Mm?” Hwang Jeong-Hu became slightly tense at that.

“Does the Jaegyeong Group sell bicycles?”

“…Hmm?” Hwang Jeong-Hu was left somewhat speechless by that question.
“A bicycle?”

Why was this young man suddenly bringing up a bicycle?

“Yes, a bicycle.” Kang Jin-Ho nodded.

“Well, uh, no.
We don't sell bicycles.”

Kang Jin-Ho looked a little disappointed.

“What's the matter?”

“I need a sturdy bicycle, you see.”

Hwang Jeong-Hu was stupefied by that reply and had to remind Kang Jin-Ho about something important.
“Isn't that what the ten billion won is for? Italy produces many famous bicycles, so you should consider buying the best one available.”

Kang Jin-Ho shook his head.
“You misunderstood me, sir.”


“I'm not looking for a nice bicycle but a sturdy one.
Sturdy enough to survive getting run over by a truck, with pedals strong enough to not break when I push them down as hard as I can.
I want that kind of bicycle.”

“What? Even after a truck runs it over? Why would you need a bicycle like that?”

Kang Jin-Ho sheepishly scratched the back of his head.
“I keep breaking my bicycles, you see.”

keep breaking them?”

I'm just pedaling like normal, yet all the pedals keep breaking, the chains snap in half, and…”

Hwang Jeong-Hu was left utterly flabbergasted.
What on earth was he listening to right now? The sudden introduction of this weird topic stopped the old man's brain for a moment or two.
How was he supposed to interpret this request?

Although flabbergasted, Hwang Jeong-Hu still nodded.
“I don't really understand it, but there must be someone who knows what you're looking for.
Why don't I hire someone to build the sturdiest bicycle in the world for you, then?”

Kang Jin-Ho nodded.
“Yes, please.
I'll leave it up to you.”

“Well, then.
Is that all?”


Hwang Jeong-Hu settled comfortably in the seat.
“In that case, let's get going.”

“Going? Where?”

“Tsk, tsk. It's no good if you're this slow on the uptake, young man.” Hwang Jeong-Hu smiled playfully.
“We need to go to your house now, don't we?”

Kang Jin-Ho's expression sharpened instantly.
“Don't try to get my family involved in this.”

But Hwang Jeong-Hu remained unruffled and began patting Kang Jin-Ho's shoulders in pity.
“Young man, you need to think carefully about this.”

“What do you mean?”

“How are you going to explain this money to your family?”

Kang Jin-Ho was instantly rendered speechless.
Now that he thought about it, he couldn't just hand this money over to his parents.
How was he supposed to explain where he got this huge amount of money from?

“Were you thinking of telling them that it fell out of the sky one day?”


“Or, maybe you were thinking of telling them you won the lottery? However, how many ten billion won lotteries do you think there are in this country?”

Kang Jin-Ho powerlessly lowered his head.

“Young man, let me explain to your family. That’ll be easier and simpler.”

“I guess so.”

At this point, Kang Jin-Ho had decided to surrender wholeheartedly to Hwang Jeong-Hu's cunningness.
He was supposed to be in the dominant position by holding the chairman's weakness, but it felt like he was being led around by the nose from start to finish.

But it didn't feel so bad, though. Honestly, this situation reminded him of a certain old, faded memory.
That person…
That person could also turn Kang Jin-Ho into a hapless little kid like this.

“Well, then.
Shall we get going?” Hwang Jeong-Hu asked with a grin.

Kang Jin-Ho immediately shook his head.
“Maybe next time, sir.”


“I'm still in school, remember?”


Kang Jin-Ho replied in a matter-of-factly way, “I'm not expelled, after all.
As a student, I can't skip class and head home, now can I?”

“I-is that right?”

“Of course.”

“I see.
Then, you should go back to class.”

“Well, then…” Kang Jin-Ho opened the door and exited the car.

Hwang Jeong-Hu watched the young man walk away as an unreadable grin slowly filled up his face.
“What a mysterious man he is…”

Kang Jin-Ho sometimes came across as incredibly astute, but at other times, he would also seem like a naive young man.
But when his eyes flashed sharply just now, even someone like Hwang Jeong-Hu felt a shiver down his spine.

“I guess I won't get bored, then.”

An important business and a source of entertainment had shown up all at once. Hwang Jeong-Hu was finally truly thankful for this second shot at life.
