IDENTICAL (Kind, Crazy & Cold-hearted) Episode 14
(Kind, crazy & cold-hearted)
By: Faith Lucky.
Kim ji (Kind)
My heart pounded as I started at him. What have I done? Why did he exclaim? What happened to the stew?
He chuckled and looked down at the table. Then, he kept the spoon and moved on to the next table.
I clasped must palms together and hoped for the best. I really hope I get to win this. But with this expression…I don’t even know what to think.
He went round, tasting the food of the rest of the applicants and finally, he was the done. Then, he returned to stand in the middle of the room.
“Hmm” he hummed.
“And this is the end of the interview.
“You; what’s your name?” He asked, looking at my direction.
I looked beside me to be sure he was really referring to me.
“The lady that spilled drink on me” he rolled his eyes
“Um…Kim.” I replied with a nervous gulp
“Kim” he repeated.
“Okay; the rest of you, you can go home. Kim come with me” he said and started walking away and I gasped.
Wait; what does that mean?
I looked at the other applicants and they were gawping at me, grumbling.
Oh my God!
I grabbed my bag and trailed after him as he left the room.
I was so nervous. Did I really win? Why else would he want to see me?
I kept following him behind until we got to a room which looked like an office.
“Sit” he told me after taking his own seat on the other side of the table.
“Thanks” I smiled and took a seat.
“Okay; let’s go straight to the point. Congratulations, you’ve been employed as the new cook and will commence by tomorrow.
“Just so you know, as a cook, you’re expected to be here as early as six so you could make breakfast. And you leave by 8pm. You can feel free to sleepover whenever you want. We just don’t want you to feel we’re depriving you of being with your family.
“Each day has its own menu of food and when you come tomorrow, it’ll commence. Now, if you have any question, feel free to ask” he concluded, rushing his words.
The whole time, I watched in disbelief.
Oh God! I really passed it! I made it! I’ll become a cook.
I smiled and breathed out a relief.
“Thank you” was all I could say.
I was too overwhelmed to speak.
“You’re welcome. Come with your account details tomorrow. A token will be sent to you – courtesy of my dad.
“Now, if that’s all, you can leave”.
He said coldly and I chuckled and stood up.
“Thank you so much. I really appreciate” I beamed, but he didn’t say a word and I turned around and left the office.
Kim nana (Crazy)
I walked at a slow pace with my bag and books in my hand, not knowing what to think.
How can that jerk think of kissing that lady in my very presence? I can’t believe he’s a flirt.
I felt so angry and bittered. I didn’t even know where I was headed.
“Hey Kim” two girls coming towards me called with a grin but I didn’t even stop to look at them.
I was too engrossed in my thoughts.
“Kim! Have you gone dumb?” One of them called again and held me by the hand.
That was when I recognizes them. They were the same ladies Gyeong had told me about – that always bullied Kim ji.
I stopped and looked at them.
“I was beginning to think you were a ghost” the other said and laughed.
I sighed and tried walking away, not in the mood to talk.
But they blocked my way.
“We’re not done talking, pumpkin. I really want to know what gave you the nerves to talk to me the way you did back then in Jeonju” she said with her hands folded.
“If you really wanna know, try stopping me one note time” I told her and tried walking away again and the other pushed me.
I scoffed and batted my lashes.
“Did…Did you just dig a grave?” I asked and they looked at each other in a funny way.
I threw my bag and books away and gripped the first lady by the hair.
“Hey!! You bitch! Let me go!” She snarled and tried pushing me away and I slapped her.
The second lady tried coming to me and I kicked her hard on the tummy while I held the first lady’s hair roughly.
“You really want to die, huh?” I rasped and made her hit her knees on the ground..
Students were already gathering around.
The second lady tried coming to me again and I got hold of her hair as well and slapped her, letting go of the first lady for the meantime. I needed to face her.
I punched her as she screamed and pushed her to the floor.
The first lady tried running away but I caught her and made her lie back on floor, giving her a hard kick.
They’re both going to die by my hands today.
Kim nana (Crazy)
“Oh my God! Kim, why the hell did you do that??” Gyeong grumbled as we left the principal’s office.
I folded my hands angrily.
“Why did you get involved in a fight? The principal said he’s gonna repost the issue to your dad. It’s gonna create suspicions, Kim! Why…”
“Oh, please!” I cut her off.
“Those ladies were nothing but rats. They needed someone to put them in a hole” .
“Really? By making them end up in the school medic?” She asked.
“They’re just lucky a teacher came around to save them. Else, they’d have ended up in the cemetery” I rolled my eyes.
I stopped walking when I spotted him again – the jerk – Jeremy.
He was with that same lady – his girlfriend. She was so bony and dry. I really don’t get what he sees in her.
“What is it?” Gyeong asked, wondering why I stopped walking.
They were far from us and probably couldn’t see us.
And thinking about it – He’s the reason I got so pissed off and engaged in a fight.
“Is that lady really his girlfriend? I can’t believe someone like him could have such a poor taste” I said angrily and she seemed surprised.
“Who…are you talking about?” She asked.
“Yes – who else? They don’t even match. How can someone like that be his girlfriend? I can’t believe his eyes works behind his skull”
“Kim!” She called with a chuckle.
“What’re you talking about? That isn’t Jeremy’s girlfriend. Hell no” she said and looked t her in a flash.
“What’re you thinking, Kim? That’s Nari – his sister”.
