ตอนที่ 14 : 10-2
After paying respects to her father, Min Nyeo and Tae Kyung did not dilly-dally any further and said their goodbyes to Aunt as they wanted to rush back. However, they were held back by the Aunt.
Oh yes! Theres a fair in the village now. Since you have a car, you might as well send me there to the market ba!
Tae Kyung looked at the time and felt that there was still ample time. Thus, he drove Aunt to the market on his way.
Whats there at the fair? Min Nyeo curiously asked.
The market has many many things! Its all cheap and good oh! Aunt shared enthusiastically about the items available at the fair.
Oh, so would there be cheap bed sheets and pillowcases available? Min Nyeo thought about the old bed sheet that she was using and long wanted to change it. However she was so busy recently; thus she considered buying one from the fair if there was such available at the fair.
Have, definitely have! This fair is HUGE; you can get whatever you want.
Tae Kyung was silent throughout the whole journey perhaps he had yet to recover from the little girls total disregard and Aunts pollen attack. Sigh, the poor child!
The fair was not very faraway from the village it was about ten minutes of driving. The fair had all sorts of people and all kinds of sounds were coming from it. Tae Kyung had not wanted to alight from the car but he was worried for Min Nyeo who might be separated from Aunt in such a crowd. What if Aunts shopping compulsion took over and ignored Min Nyeos safety?! He could already imagine Aunts vigour and energy as she bargained with the shop owners. After consideration, he decided to get down from the car. However, he walked a distance away from Min Nyeo and her aunt.
Aunt followed Tae Kyungs prediction to a T. When she saw what she wanted, she immediately squatted down and started bargaining with the shop owners, totally forgetting about Min Nyeo.
Lets go! We walk further up front to see if theres bed sheets available, Tae Kyung clasped Min Nyeos hand and pulled Min Nyeo away from the stall, almost as if afraid that Min Nyeo would be tainted by Aunt he really did not want Min Nyeo to turn out like Aunt in the years to come.
(Translators commentary: SQUEAL SQUEAL!!! AHHH!! Totally remembering how he held her hand as she was led up the stairs)
Min Nyeo tilted her head to look at Tae Kyung and smiled in secret. Hyung Nims mood seemed to be better now!
Not long later, the both of them saw a huge tent that had a wide variety of bedroom accessories underneath. Min Nyeo ran forward to inquire about the price. True enough, the prices were very reasonable and cheap and thus she started shopping happily.
Tae Kyung stuck his hands inside his pants pockets and looked at Min Nyeos enjoyment with satisfaction. The afternoon sun beams shone on Min Nyeo wearing a knitted top and a white furry hat, Min Nyeo really looked like a white furry rabbit at first glance. Tae Kyung couldnt help but give a lopsided smile as he imagined about their sweet future together.
Hyung Nim, is this nice? Min Nyeo showed a bed sheet that had a refreshing blue striped background.
Tae Kyung looked at it for a while then shook his head.
What about this then? Min Nyeo held up a green one.
Tae Kyung looked at Min Nyeo and pursued his lips, This one doesnt match your skin tone.
Min Nyeo did not catch Tae Kyungs hidden meaning, and humbly lowered her head to continue her selection. However, the aunty selling the bed sheets kept giving them suggestive looks.
Sigh! I can only say, Tae Kyung sshi ah, what were you thinking as you were helping your girlfriend, Go Min Nyeo, select her bed sheets?
