Hey! What-- Where are you. How did you meet?

<I really was gonna pass by, but there was a really thick smell coming from his side, as if he had poured perfume on his head~>

wallet… wallet

look around


<There’s no way I could’ve resisted that smell.>


<So I ended up following him without realizing.>

grab

you completely ignored my words.

You’re so good at lying, aren’t you?

<Do you know what he has on his neck?>

Oh, Boss! Are you going outside?

Yeah, sorry. Leave the office when you need to.


<He stuck a large gauze over them with some medical tape.>

run down

If someone else saw them, they’d think he’s really been cut from somewhere else.


<Don’t you make a single move on him. He truly knows nothing of the situation.>

<Wait there, I’ll be there in a moment.>


You don’t have to worry so much about it, I’ve got a thing in my mind already.

<How can I believe you? You’re the kind of guy to do anything to complete his job.>

I was wondering why you were being so obedient.

Since I know the kind of guy you are,


<I must cover for you.>

smile widely

I’ll be waiting.

Here you go.

That surprised me…

I’ve received your card.


The air he gave off was so similar…


That for a moment, I thought Hyung-Woo was here.


Page 5

Why are you feeling so conscious about it…

embarrassed

They look nothing alike…


Thank you for your patronage. (in Korean it just says thank you)


He does look handsome.

I never thought that I’d be able to see such preposterous faces twice in my life.


Outrageously beautiful people sure do feel different.

Is this what they call a ‘celebrity aura’?

Mr. Min-Hoon?

Oh, yes…

Shall we go now?

We better go to a cafe since we’ll be eating dinner later on, right? I know a place that sells alcohol as well.


It isn’t too far from here as well…

Hey, the sun is bright so wear th--


Ah.


I mistook them again just now!

Get out of my head already, Hyung-Woo!


Um, this… Bad habit…

Don’t you think it might be too small for two people to use together?


Page 10

...No, | I didn’t pull it out to use for myself… | I’m fine without it.

Oh, is that so?


Speaking of, is it useful for you? The air freshener. I heard Sung-Ryeol gave it to you.

Did you make that, Mr. Adric? Oh, I’m sorry for taking it.

That’s alright, I can just make another. It’s a company product.


Page 11

It’s not yet at the stage of practical use, how is it?

It’s really nice! | I had a hard time these days because I suddenly got sensitive to smell.


It really is a great help.

Well that’s fortunate.


But it has storing precautions.

What?


You have to keep it refrigerated. It was okay till now, but since it’s getting warmer…

Oh, I...


Page 12

Just keep it in my work bag…

because I carry it around

Is anyone home right now?


Hm…


Maybe he’s still at home...


Page 13

“You told me before that you ‘used to have’ a food source! So then I thought, ‘Oh, something must’ve happened to him,’ and that you were worried about that…”


He was thinking about such a thing...


Page 14

[Did I make him anxious?]


[That was the first time Min-Hoon ever spoke in such a way.]


[He has,]

[Probably,]

[Always, been keeping those words to himself.]


To be honest, I already knew about it. I pretended not to know since I also couldn’t talk about it.


Page 15

Do I have to tell him..?


Would he understand..?


Sigh…

<Ding-dong>

An air freshener… in the black bag? | Did he use to use air fresheners?


Is that it…


It looks more like a fiber deodorant

rather than an air freshener.


spray

These days you put everything in the refrigerator…

Text: Leave it where the water bottle is at. The smell is nice so you should try using it too.


This isn’t an air freshener--
