June 15, 1999
I entered Ji Won’s room holding a tray of food. Ever since
he started being depressed, he isolates himself and didn’t
eat much anymore. I was beginning to worry. I didn’t have
much time left with him so I wanted to take the best care of him
with the little time I still had left.

Ji Won turned around to see who it was. It was Min
’What a mess’, I thought as I stripped out of my
clothes. I soaked myself in a hot water bath, hoping it could
wash away all my troubles. When I was done with my bath, I wrapped
myself up in a towel and got out of the tub. Then I heard my room
door open and then close.
Ji Won entered Min Sung’s room, not knowing what to say. He wasn’t good at apologizing. He looked around and didn’t see Min Sung anywhere. Then he heard the sound of water draining. He figured Min Sung must be in the bathroom. Ji Won opened the door slightly and saw Min Sung’s bare back. He shuts the door quietly and began to leave. He planned to apologize later but he suddenly realized what he had just seen. Min Sung’s back had an ‘E’ on it! Ji Won breaks open the door to the bathroom.
I was buttoning up my long sleeve shirt when my
door suddenly opened. I stared at Ji Won in shock
but then remembered I wasn’t completely dressed
yet. I buttoned up the remaining buttons and then
Ji Won stared at Min Sung’s exposed body.
Without thinking, he ripped open Min Sung’s
shirt finding that Min Sung was indeed a woman. Min
Sung stood still, stunned at what Ji Won had just
did. He turned Min Sung’s back to him. There
it was. His ‘E.’
I didn’t know what I was more embarrassed from. Letting
Ji Won expose me or being caught. In all my life I had never been
angry at Ji Won but I didn’t know why I reacted impulsively.
As I held my shirt together, I slapped Ji Won across the face
hard with my other hand. His head snapped to the side. He held
his cheeks as he turned to face me.

Ji Won was in shock. Mina, he thought. He grabbed
her arms as she pushed him out.
I glared at him. As if he knew, Ji Won took off
his jacket and puts it around my shoulders. I zipped
it up, covering myself.
Ji Won looked at Mina, who had tears streaming from
her eyes. He was about to brush them off for her but
Mina pushed his hand away.
Ji Won felt his heart shatter into a million pieces. Each one
of Mina’s words stabbed him like a knife.
