”Hyunaaaaaa!~ ”

I stopped walking and felt a warm embrace on my back. Her voice was so easy to recognize that I didn even have to guess who she was. I chuckled as I witnessed her silliness every time she was together with me. ”Hey, whats up? ”

She clung to my arm and walked with me towards the university. ”Haven you heard? Many companies are recruiting new players for the next competition! ”

I stopped in my tracks again and looked at her with my forehead creased. ”Didn I tell you Im done with that? ” I asked her.

She pouted and rested her head on my shoulder. Her fluffy cheeks rubbed against my shoulder as she tried to calm me down. ”You cannot waste your talent, Hyuna. You can still compete. Why are you stopping yourself? ”

I sighed and gently patted her hair. ”Its because Im done with it. Talented or not, I don want anything to do with the circle. ”

She chuckled and obviously wasn taking me seriously. Her eyes were twitching as she released her hands from my arm. A-Yeong pulled away from me with a mischievous smile plastered on her face. I can help but to groan and be nervous at her smile. Every time she does this, something doesn feel right.

I raised my eyebrows before asking her— ”What did you do? ”

”Hehe. I applied on your behalf for an internship in a famous company. I already signed your name, contact number, and ID on the website. ” She answered and ran away from me.

I gasped. ”You—WHAT?! ” I couldn control my voice which made a commotion around me. I lowered my head when I realized everyone was staring at me. My cheeks flushed in embarrassment as I tried to cover my face with my hands.

Before I could even talk to A-Yeong again, she had already run away from me. ”I love you, Hyunaaa! Hihi Ill wait for your good news! Aja Aja! Fighting! ” She screamed before going towards the building of the Business Ad.

I scratched my head in frustration. How can I even stop her from her crazy antics?

Last time, she pulled me into a blind date, saying I needed to find a partner or else I would live alone forever. I needed to act dumb and cover my face with a thick foundation and red lipstick to make sure the guy would turn me down quickly. Later that night, she confessed to me, saying that the blind date was supposed to be hers, but she got back with his boyfriend.

”A-Yeongs craziness is gonna kill me. ” I muttered and took my ringing phone out of my jeans.

My forehead creased in curiosity when I saw an unlisted number text me.

[Good Day Jeong Hyun! You have passed the screening for the internship! You can start your training once you sign the contract. May I ask if you
e available this afternoon?]

Is this the company A-Yeong was telling me about? When did she even register me? Does that mean I passed the test without me even knowing?

I started to become paranoid as I read the text over and over again. ”Ah, screw this. I don care. ” My hands clicked the reply button and typed my typical message every time. ”Excuse me? Whos this? ”

~~~~~~~~~~

”Jeong Hyun! ”

I stopped organizing the bills and looked at my boss smiling widely. ”Hmm? ”

”My boyfriends going to crash in my shop tonight. You can take a day off today. ”

My mood suddenly brightened up when I heard the word day off. ”Really?! ” I exclaimed, which made Hana chuckle.

”You should take a break once in a while. Working every night will take a toll on your body. ”

I nodded at her and quickly finished setting up the place first before I changed my clothes.

”Rest well, Hyuna! ”

”I will. ” I smiled as I waved at her and went on my way home to my apartment.

As I opened my apartment door, the familiar citrus scent of perfume lingered around the place. ”Im home. ” I whispered before closing the door behind me.

I looked around my living room and checked if everything was neatly placed. It only took a minute to check since the place doesn have that many things to begin with.

I dropped my bag on the floor before diving onto my soft bed. ”Ahh, now Im bored. ” I muttered.

Silence enveloped me as soon as I closed my eyes. I rarely watch television or listen to the news; hell, even my rice cooker is haunted.

Nevertheless, the silence has never bothered me at all. My bed is much more relaxing than any other place. I was about to nap when my phone lit up and rang nonstop.

I scowled and sat straight on my bed before opening my phone. My forehead creased when I saw that I had five missed calls and three unread messages. ”Who the hell is disrupting my peaceful day? ”

I clicked the first message and read it loudly.

”This is Manager Kim Min-Ji. I rechecked our forms and saw that you did apply for an internship— ” I sighed as I remembered what A-Yeong said. She set me up again. This time, it wasn a blind date but a freaking job application!

I opened the second message, and it was still the same person from the first message.

”According to your ID name, you have reached quite a popularity among the players. Do you want to be a pro gamer?—Huh? Is this manager insane? What popularity? People don even know me! ” I scoffed and couldn help but raise my brows at what this manager was spouting.

Who said Im famous and can be qualified to be a professional gamer just because of fame? Hah! This is purely a scam!

I forced myself to open the third message, and it seemed like the negativity I gathered turned into bubbles as I read it.

”You can earn xxxxxxxx of salary every month, and of course, your income will increase if you win competitions. Are you willing to take a risk? ”

Another text message was sent to my inbox, so I opened it. ”If interested, you can watch your seniors fight this evening at 6 PM in LoL Arena near xxxxxx Street. ”

I glanced at my clock and checked the time. It was already 5:30 in the evening. ”Should I come? ” I muttered and scratched my head.

Curiosity was burning me, and I knew I wouldn fall asleep tonight if I didn go.

”Off I go. ” I sighed and jumped out of my bed. I quickly changed my clothes into something more comfortable to make sure I could watch without any delays.

I wore my favorite black hoodie, jeans, and glasses together with a mask. At this point, no one will ever approach me, and I can watch the game peacefully.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

”This is bullshit! What did you say?! ”

”I-I quit! I-I can catch up with your monstrous training!— toot toot toot. ” And then the call ended.

”Now what? We can fight OG without a mid. ” Hyun Ki hopelessly sat in his chair and tried to entertain himself by watching the current fight between two minor group leagues.

”Aah! Shit! ” It was Felix.

His veins are now visible in his throat, making the whole team zip up their mouths and avoid him. Everyone inside the room knew that it was best to shut up.

Min-Ji scratched her head as she witnessed how discouraged they were. They were anticipating this day, yet their mid left them precisely the day of the screening competition.

”We cannot forfeit this match, or else we will not qualify for the competition. ” Felix muttered and crumpled the water bottle like a piece of paper.

”What if we change our strategy? The one we are experimenting with. ”

It was Baek Hyeon who suggested it.

Everyone turned at him with terrified looks on their faces. Even their manager could not stop showing her panicked self when he said that.

”Are you kidding me? The last time we did that, what happened? We lost! Im fine if its a glorious defeat, but no! Its an embarrassing one! ” It was Min Joon, their support, who said it flippantly.

Everyone in the room nodded in unison except for Felix and Baek Hyeon.

”Lets do it. ”

They all stopped nodding and looked at their captain, who was now smirking, looking like he was about to make a foolish decision. Min-Ji gulped nervously and dwindled when Felix looked at her with his not-so-handsome grin.

”Go search for a player in our company that plays mid. I don care if hes a beginner, a trainee, or a pro. Just grab one. ”

This is not going to end well.
