“So please change seats first.”
“Change seats? Where to?”
“To sit next to Jang Won.”
“Jang Won? Do you want to sit next to Park Jang Won?”
Kim Seok Ho, who was being ignored, looked directly at the homeroom teacher and said.
“Jang Won is the best at studying. So I want to learn from him.”
“No… Jang Won is not allowed. He is the top student in the whole school. I can’t allow a situation where he can’t study because of you.”
Kim Seok Ho said to the homeroom teacher with a serious voice.
“I really want to sit next to Jang Won to study. Please judge after seeing the mid-term exam. If I don’t get noticeable grades in the mid-term exam, I promise to move back to my original seat before you ask me to move.”
The homeroom teacher frowned, as if he couldn’t believe Kim Seok Ho’s words.
“Is that… for real?”
“Grandfather told me to protect his honor. The best thing I can do for that is to study, right? I really intend to study hard. Please believe me, as I made a promise with Grandfather.”
When the name of Chairman Choi Dae Hwan was mentioned, the homeroom teacher could no longer refuse.
“Then only until the mid-term exam. If you don’t get good grades in the mid-term, pack your bag with your own hands and return to your original seat, as promised. Got it?”
“Yes. Don’t worry. I don’t think I’ll have to do that, but I’m really desperate too.”
The homeroom teacher nodded hesitantly at Kim Seok Ho’s words.
He had never expected that the guy who lived without fear and worry would be so desperate.
Kim Seok Ho said goodbye to the homeroom teacher and immediately returned to the classroom.
And he switched seats with his friend sitting next to Park Jang Won.
Park Jang Won didn’t put his pencil down even when his partner changed.
He was too busy checking if there was anything he didn’t understand while solving the problems in the workbook.
Once Kim Seok Ho moved all his belongings to the next seat and sat down, Park Jang Won finally lifted his head from the workbook.
Kim Seok Ho smiled at Park Jang Won, who was looking at him with eyes full of fear and worry, and spoke first.
“Don’t worry. I didn’t come here to bother you.”
“Then why did you come here? This is… the third row.”
It meant, why did you come here when this is the spot where the teacher can see you the best and you can also keep an eye on the teacher.
Kim Seok Ho put his hands on Park Jang Won’s shoulders.
“I came here to study, so please help me a lot from now on.”
“But you can get a private tutor. It’s not like it’s against the law… It’s not that you don’t get a tutor because you want to abide by the law, right?”
“What do you mean by private tutor? Are you getting a tutor?”
“I can’t afford that.”
“Right. You don’t need a tutor since you study well, don’t you? Isn’t that right?”
Park Jang Won nodded his head as if he couldn’t defeat Kim Seok Ho’s words.
Kim Seok Ho looked at Park Jang Won and spoke with a smile.
“If I follow what you’re doing, I think I can go to Seoul National University too. That’s why I came to your seat, so don’t worry. Just do what you were doing and I’ll follow along next to you.”
“You’ll follow along?”
Park Jang Won asked, not understanding Kim Seok Ho’s words.
Kim Seok Ho raised the hand that was on Park Jang Won’s shoulders and pointed to the front door.
“The teacher is coming. Let’s listen to the class for now… We’ll talk about the details later.”
As Kim Seok Ho said, the front door opened and the teacher entered, Park Jang Won lowered his head again.
There was no time for Kim Seok Ho and his uncle to have a conversation because the class started.
“But by the way, is there something going on at home??”
Kim Seok Ho looked beyond Park Jang Won’s lowered head and saw a faint black energy.
He asked with concern.
