No, no, no. I hadn’t even been with a woman yet, and I suddenly had a child?
The girl looking at me had shoulder-length hair and big, lovely eyes.
I thought she was going to be very beautiful in the future.
No, that wasn’t what I was supposed to think about now. The girl looked at me as if she had something to say.
Let’s hear it for now.
“Um, what’s going on?”
“I have a stomach ache. Please give me something to eat.”
1A bento is a single-portion take-out or home-packed meal of Japanese origin. Outside Japan, it is common in Chinese and Korean cuisines, as well as in Southeast Asian cuisines where rice is the main staple food.
(Words are still tricky for me to understand. Her point is, she’s hungry and wants something to eat… Hmm? Bento? In the morning?)
I had a bad feeling, so I hurriedly jumped up and opened the refrigerator near the kitchen.
(There’s nothing in here but beer!)
I looked around and saw smartphones, famous brand bags and clothes lying around, and cartons of cigarettes piled on top of the TV.
(Instead of buying these things, why didn’t she buy some vegetables or rice?!)
I felt angry at the woman I met at the place where the god-like person was, but right now it wasn’t about that, it was about food for me and the girl.
(I hope she had some money! If she didn’t, I would have to start by selling her designer bags.)
I looked around the room and searched inside the brown branded bag near my phone and found another expensive looking wallet.
(Thank God, there’s 100,000 in there. But she’s not in debt, is she?)
The girl was looking at me anxiously.
Speaking of which, what was her name? But I can’t ask that since we’re living in the same house.
It would be a shock for a girl to suddenly hear such a thing from her relative.
“Is there any food in the house? I will be quiet in my room.”
(Is there any breakfast? Will she really be quiet in the corner? Huh? Why would she say that?)
Such a small child was hungry, and she was trying so hard to keep it together, and the woman was fine with that? That pisses me off.)
Because there’s no way that’s a good idea!
“Um, do you want me to go shopping with you?”
Eh? I tried to smile as much as I could, but why did she freeze?
“Can I come with you?”
I wondered what kind of life she had been living until now.
