Arriving in London at dawn, the two of them relaxed for a while.
Gaon was finally able to sleep well without thinking for the first time in a long time.
After she woke up slowly, Ji-Won, who had already been groomed, was making calls here and there to adjust Gaon’s future schedule.

The reserved flight is tomorrow night’s flight, but if you want to return home today, the Chief of Security will immediately book an Air Charter.
What do you say?”

“You don’t have to.
I’m going to ride it alone.
What do you mean booking the entire plane? It’s a waste of money.
Tell them that we’ll be returning tomorrow as scheduled.”

“I see.”

Gaon decided to stay in London for one more day because she didn’t want to make many people busy, but after having a late lunch, she had nothing else to do.
What was there to see in London….
She couldn’t sleep any more, so she thought it would be great to walk around.
Ji-Won stared at Gaon, who was looking at the air with a thoughtful face, and carefully suggested.

“CEO, if you don’t have anything else you want to do, would you like to go to Sotheby’s Preview with me? When the auction is over, a personal collection of the organiser’s would be shown.
Most of the works are pretty high-end and you may never be seen in person again.
So it is worth seeing at least once.”


Director Cha will also stop by anyway, so wouldn’t it bother him much if I followed him? No.
Should I tell the tell person who was dragged out half way during vacation to stop cleaning up after the boss? Ji-Won laughed a little inwardly when he saw Gaon, who couldn’t make up her mind easily, was pondering so hard. Are my eyes playing tricks on me? Why doesn’t anyone know what’s inside of a person who reveals every emotion on her face?

“I’ll be bored if I go alone, so please go with me.
It’s fun to watch it together.”

“Then…, shall we?”

Gaon, who had visited the exhibition hall after a long time, seemed to be enjoying it much more than he expected.
She didn’t appreciate each work with great care, but sometimes when she saw a work that she liked very much, she was so immersed that she didn’t even notice that she bumped into the person next to her.
Then, when Ji-Won stood in front of a glass vase, which was his original purpose of visiting London, Gaon unknowingly uttered a small exclamation.

“Very…, beautiful.”

Gaon stared at the beautiful vase in the shape of a flower with a harmonious mixture of purple and wine red for a very long time.
On the other hand, Ji-Won, who was staring at Gaon without even giving an eye to the much desired vase, barely swallowed the abusive language that was about to burst out, and closed his eyes tightly before opening them.
Her cheeks flushed like a child, and eyes soaked with admiration, could not look so pretty.

I’m in trouble.
I’m doomed.
Cha Ji-Won, you’ve gone crazy.
You have a crush on a woman who you don’t even know if she’s a human or not. As soon as Ji-Won became aware of his heart, the behaviors that he had never understood why he did were explained very clearly in an instant.
He was so ridiculously fascinated about this woman’s face from the start. Yeah, actually, I thought it was just because I’m too kind.

Now what? As he was looking at the ceiling with a stunned face, a vibration rang in his pocket.
When he checked, it was a phone call from a friend whom he was supposed to meet in London.
When he realized that he had completely forgotten his promise with his friend, he just laughed ridiculously.

“Director Cha, didn’t you get a call?”

“It’s spam.”

Ji-Won, who simply hung up on his friend like a 10 year old boy in love, quickly sent a one-handed message explaining his situation.

Something urgent came up, so I’m just going back.
See you next time.]

“When is the auction?”

“It’s next Friday.
Don’t worry, because now that I saw it in person I just can participate in the auction online or send an agent.”

The next night, Ji-Won, who eventually got on the plane to Jungcheon, sighed silently and constantly, looking alternately at the dark night sky and Gaon’s beautifully asleep face.

“A whisky, please.
Johnny Walker, strong.”

He had vowed not to drink alcohol during his business trip, but now alcohol is desperately needed to calm down.
As he inhaled the 40-degree Scotch whisky like water, a thrilling energy went down the esophagus as if he had swallowed a fire.
Sadly, it was not enough to soothe the complicated and noisy heart.


A man in a loose, loose-fitting gown was sitting crookedly in a large, splendidly decorated chair, looking down at the sinners with a languid face.
It was the judges who decided the sentence anyway, so he didn’t have to step up himself.
Ha-Yul, who was just sitting by to create an atmosphere of fear, couldn’t stand the boredom and jumped up.

I’m bored again today.
I’m gonna go take a nap. Ha-Yul was about to leave the Beopgung Palace, stopped walking with a slightly interesting face when he saw a shabby-looking dead man was dragged inside. Well, the big shot who died in the 18th century is here?

“Oliver Mason.
350 years in prison for one human trafficking, 34 murders….”

“Wait a minute.”

Ha-Yul, who was looking closely at the very frightened deceased, lifted his chin and gritted his teeth fiercely, flashing red eyes.

Isn’t he the old man from Chester? He dared to make a busy woman go all the way to the countryside? Because of guys like you, I can’t even look at her face once! Ha-Yul proudly looked down at the trembling dead and made a bold decision out of the blue.

“Since the criminal did not follow the instructions of the extradition and caused a great deal of trouble to the heavy duty, it shall be executed by doubling the sentence sentenced by the judge.”

‘Oh, Ju-on is really being harsh at this time.
He could just kill him with his sword, so simple.
No need to go all out for such a simple thing, tsk.
I’m sure that’s why she’s taken away from him in the first place.’

Ha-Yul, who caught the afterimage of the deceased’s last memory with a languid gesture and floated it in the air, smiled happily with his mouth wide open.
It was a small pleasure that felt like a gift in a boring daily life.
