"Ugh! Professor Elliot's class is so tense. I was even afraid to breathe loudly."Jasmine complained while massaging her sore arms. She had to carefully listen to Elliot and concentrate on every word to not miss anything. He was a strict professor and anyone caught slacking will have a miserable fate. Even the usually playful Cara kept her silence and didn't even dare to chitchat like in other classes. Nevertheless, the class was informative and definitely worth it as Elliot wasn't someone to disappoint. His popularity precedes him and although he was hard to reason with, he still did his job perfectly and meticulously, answering anything asked by his students.
"Aren't you going to eat?"Rika glanced at the standing Bin and asked, her gaze lingering on his face for a few moments before shyly retracting it. The other three girls were busying themselves with their food while chatting about girly boorish stuff."Nah, I'm fine. I'll eat later.""Why not?" Out of no where, Melissa butted in, looking at the pale-faced youth with a seductive
Jasmine was happily giggling and chatting with Joseph while Cara was whispering something Rika while sneaking a couple of glances at the tall young man on the opposite side of the table.Bin returned next to them and remained standing like a pillar, his face expressionless and his lips tightly shut, neither commenting on the banal conversation of the couple or mocking Cara’s ‘quiet’ whispering, which was actually idiotic thoughts she dared to brazenly say.
"By the way, how are you feeling?" Aldren glanced at Bin, who was sitting next to him and nonchalantly asked.After a never-before-insistence, Bin let himself dragged by this guy, who claimed that there was a close place where they could have some fun. Apparently, on a car, it's only a few minutes away from the academy so he doesn't have to worry about returning late to Jasmine.Aldren knew Bin's circumstances so he definitely wouldn't deliberately cause problems, at least that's what he confidently claimed.
Very soon, Aldren busied himself with other fun games, jumping from one table to another, uncaring about the money he lost. As for Bin, he wandered around, curiously checking the machines but he didn’t dare to play, unwilling to lose the money in his possession.People were enjoying their time, laughing together and throwing money as if it was nothing. Bin wished he could all of that to himself but it was just him fantasizing about impossible scenarios any poor person would dream about.Around fifteen minutes later, he wandered off to a smaller room with more people. Contrary to other area, this one had no machines or tables, there was just a group of masked people circling around a woman wearing a dark veil that covered her face.Although her face was unseen, a pale, slender neck rises from the gorget. The milky skin stretched across all the exposed parts, it is delicate and translucent, like a parchment that has been scraped clean too many ti
“Is he for real?”One of the onlookers questioned himself as he heard Bin’s serious tone. The youth didn’t seem to be joking around as he waved around his card which showed that he only had 1 million won.The veiled woman creased her brows and looked at Bin for some time before calmly saying“Since it’s your first time, you won’t have t
Once he was out of the ‘danger area’, Bin breathed a sigh of relief as he hugged the card containing his money, afraid to lose it. The thought of trying another game didn’t cross his mind anymore, all his greed vanished the moment he won the woman’s game and was awarded 3 million won. Along with the one million, he’s gotten from the machine, that’s a whopping 4 million won, an astronomical amount for a poverty-stricken person like Bin.Such a big amount is a blessing that should not be lost or wasted on useless stuff. He’ll save the majority of it and spend the rest on Mina, probably buy her a few gifts and clothes.
"Hey! What the hell happened? Why did you flee like that?"As he saw a youngster relaxing next to his sports car without a care in the world, Aldren walked up to him and asked with a frowning face. In response, Bin sighed, shrugged his shoulders and said:"Nothing, I've won some money and I don't want to lose it.""Then what about Lady Cass? How come she specifically came to ta
