Chapter - 17

Morning at work

A woman wearing a pair of high heels is walking in the Public Relations Department.

Black SH: Wooh, Yeon-daeri!..

Orange: Where're you going today?

That woman was FMC, she wears a high class dress and a Chanel bag.

Black SH: You're so beautiful!

FMC points her finger at herself and play the dumb girl.

FMC: Really? This is too much?

Orange and BSH laugh at what FMC asks them.

Orange: Hey, do you have a date tonight?.

FMC comes closer to Orange and whispers to her something, Glasses looks at them.

Orange: ...oh oh, really?!


Break room

FMC is pouring water in her cup thinking about what happened the other night.

FMC: {Ha.. well, it's not like me.. Too much happened so suddenly.}

FMC recalls what happened with FB "last night". FB grabs FMC's hand and looks at her, she is on the verge of tears.

FMC: {Well.. in the first place, our relationship was only on this level. It started suddenly, then ended abruptly like that.}

After drinking her cup of water she leaves the restroom and looks at MC's office door.

FMC: {This..}

She remembers her last meeting with MC and what she does to him..

FMC: {I blew it off before it even started...}

Rooftop / Office terrace

MC's sitting on a bench, alone, looking down.. Then MC hears two people coming.

Someone: .. about Yeonjin-daeri, it's such a shame!

The two people are Black hair (FMC's colleague) and Orange.

BH: Why would she need to use an app for dating, how many sane men would not go after her.

MC: {How shit.. I need to leave this place.}

MC hides behind a vending machine and looks at the two girls talking about FMC.

Orange: En, don't you know, it's been a while since the manager did not have a date? She was so excited about going to a nice and chic restaurant, it's a three stars place. (Michelin's Guide)

BH: Having a date there.. Do you know why this place is so famous?.

BH: You don't only drink there, you come for having a good night. (Literally fucking)

MC is startled by what BH says.

Orange: Oh really, anyway it doesn't concern us!

BH: Well, now I understand why the manager is so secretive about her date.

Orange: Yes.

They leave, MC is still looking down on the bench alone, thinking about something.

Evening - The Heaven

FMC is clinking her glass with her date then takes a sip of her cocktail.

FMC: Mmh, the taste of the cocktail is delicious. The view is pretty here.. the atmosphere is pretty good too.
I've to thank you for letting me know a good place like this.

They sit together next to the bar, the dude smiles at her.

Dude: That's fortunate. It's the first time that I come to this place.

FMC: {..Liar, don't you come here every week?}

FMC: Do you drink often?

Dude: Not really, I'm so busy with my work, what about Miss Yeonjin?

FMC: Oh.. me, me neither I hate loud place, I don't enjoy drinking too much.

She giggles saying that, remembering her previous night with the PR team and how drunk she was this night.

FMC: But it's okay to drink moderately in a quiet place.

The dude smiles hearing that..

Dude: Really? If you're okay.. I would like to come here with you more often in the future.

His smile and what he said causes her to blush a little. She looks away shyly and after a moment she finally answers him.

FMC: too..

The dude smirks like your typical douche / rapist after hearing her answer.

Dude: Would you like another one?

FMC: Oh, I'll go to the bathroom for a second.

Dude: I'll order a cocktail for you, you can drink it after coming back.

FMC: Oh, then pick me a sweet one with champagne.

Dude: Yeah, leave it to me.

She stands up and heads toward the bathroom, meanwhile MC is siting not that far from them.


FMC arranges her makeup, thinking about the dude.

FMC: {Ah.. Coming here after working.. I'm so tired and I'm feeling uncomfortable in my clothes.}

{By the way, originally.. Do I really like this type of guys..?}

{Actually, you don't look like each other in real life..}

(TN: Meh here, don't know if she compares the dude to MC / FB or if she compares him to when she talked with him on the app these past few days.)


There is an incident in the bar.

Barmaid: Manager, hurry up!

FMC looks at the scene happening in front of her wondering what's going on.

Dude: Hey, why are you so upset about me?!

Someone: What? What?

Someone: Hmm is there a fight?

Barmaid: Oh, sir! Calm down and talk to me, calm down..!

MC grabs the dude by the collar angrily.

Dude: What, what do you want, who are you?

MC: I've seen everything, motherfucker!

FMC heads toward the cause of the ruckus and sees MC brawling with the dude.

FMC: {How.. how is it possible?!..}

FMC: You here. Explain what you did, hurry up!

MC turns his head and sees FMC heading toward them, the other dude is like a pussy thinking what to answer her.

Dude: .. Oh Miss Yeonjin! I don't know why but this guy suddenly attacked me..

She doesn't care about what the bitch is saying and she shouts at MC.

FMC: ..Yu-bujang!!

MC looks at the angry FMC..

FMC: What are you doing?!!

FMC is upset for whatever reason and stares at MC still holding the bitch by his collar.

Tbc <3.
