Chapter 8 - Together With Family (19)
Sun Ha had a faint smile on her face, enjoying his warmth on her back. “I forgot.”
Half asleep, Do Ook let out a short chuckle. He mumbled to himself, “Looks like it really was nothing.”
Having sated his curiosity more easily than he expected, Do Ook let go of her hips and settled back into a more comfortable sleeping position, closing his drowsy eyes. As he was a busy man without much time for rest, it seemed that he was quick to go to sleep. It didn’t take long before he was still, breathing at a steady pace.
Sun Ha pulled her blanket up to her neck as if she was trying to hide her sticky body. Her breast and nipples were still sore from his tenacious licking and sucking, and her lower half was still warm and tingling after his merciless attention as if it remembered the intense climax he had released in her.
Her physical relationship with Do Ook was such that he turned her into a completely different person. Sun Ha would always let herself be embraced by him, her body shivering as she utterly enjoyed every single moment without reservation. However, when their intense lovemaking was finally over, a tidal wave of loneliness washed over her heart. Those bitter feelings were particularly strong today, never letting go.
It’d been the first time since her mother’s death that Sun Ha could’ve celebrated her birthday with a family member. She hadn’t been able to spend her last two birthdays with him since he’d had business trips that had coincided with the dates. Back then, she hadn’t even bothered being hopeful that he’d be able to spend her birthday with her.
The reason why, after years of living together, it was so difficult for her to bring up that it was her birthday was that she had thrown away the chance to mention it in the years before. Two of her birthdays had already passed completely ignored, so she felt it would be weird if she were to suddenly bring it up now.
‘A birthday spent together with family…’
He might laugh at her way of thinking, but after the marriage registration had been completed, Sun Ha had considered Choi Do Ook as her real husband and part of her family. However, even though she was lying this close to him in bed, her feelings of loneliness continued running through her mind.
Spent together with family (3) (19+)
Sun Ha shut her wavering eyes tightly to hide them away. However, unlike Do Ook who went to sleep right away, she tossed and turned all night long.
After buying some groceries for dinner and stepping into the warm home, Sun Ha felt her frozen body slowly begin to thaw.
The winds outside were powerful and vicious as if to prove that winter had begun. It had become much colder outside. On top of that, the sun had set, so even though she’d been mindful of the cold and had worn thick clothes, Sun Ha had still found herself buffeted by the strong winds and unable to keep her freezing eyes open properly. Even though she’d been told by Do Ook multiple times to send people out to pick up groceries for her, Sun Ha kept going herself.
She let out a sigh of relief as she set the completely filled grocery bags down on the floor next to the table. Her hands were bright red as if they’d been cooked, from holding the bags. Rubbing her hands together for warmth, she headed to the cupboards to take a teacup and pour herself some hot water from the water dispenser.
A trickle of hot water filled the cup two-thirds of the way. Sun Ha planned to make it into warm tea right away to warm up her body quicker, but her hands, still too numb to move properly, suddenly slipped and the teacup fell onto the floor.
The sound of the teacup breaking completely filled the quiet house. Sun Ha froze for a moment at the loud sound. She stared down at the messed-up marble floor with a stunned expression. The cup was in pieces everywhere, and the water was creating a large pool on the floor.
“I’m such an idiot…” Sun Ha blamed herself as she crouched down. Do Ook would be home soon, so there was no time for her to dawdle like this. She needed to quickly clean up the broken cup and prepare dinner.
“Ah!” It was probably because of the urgency she was feeling that Sun Ha cut her finger and palm while trying to hurriedly clean up the pieces of glass. She pulled out a small piece of glass that had dug itself inside of her hand, her breathing becoming subdued.
Not only had she broken a cup, but she’d also cut her hand.
An ominous feeling that had started to fill her mind bothered her more than the cut on her hand. When she was very young she would sometimes drop a cup or dish onto the floor because of her carelessness, but after becoming an adult this had rarely happened. But seeing as she had not only broken a cup but cut herself as well, an instinctual, ominous feeling came over her.
As if to incite her worried mind even more, the house phone suddenly started to ring loudly. There were only two people who called the home line instead of a cell. They were Chairman Choi, Do Ook’s grandfather, and Cheong Yang Daek, a long-time housekeeper for the family.
In any case, Sun Ha had already planned to visit Chairman Choi’s house the next day. After retiring, he had a lot more free time and was rather lonely. Every time she visited him, he would tell her not to bother coming out so far to meet him, but she would always see him smiling after seeing her again. She’d also heard from Cheong Yang Daek that Chairman Choi preferred meeting his grandson’s young and sprightly wife much more than his actual grandson, who was much too heartless.
Sun Ha learned how to play Go from Chairman Choi, and he would show her the orchids he worked hard to grow. Sun Ha also helped him with his calligraphy by mixing the ink for him, and she would listen with interest to all of his childhood stories, which would easily last an hour once he got started.
While learning how to cook from Cheong Yang Daek, Sun Ha also realized that Choi Do Ook and his grandfather shared similar tastes in food, even though they didn’t get along with each other at all.
