Unformatted text preview: Outsider by Guiyeoni translated by nGk2M PROLOGUE That day 4 years ago My body was stiff and my left eye was in slight pain that afternoon. I remember it was raining that day. The date was September 1 or was it the 2nd? Oh,. And Ill make it known now that I was no different from a poor bum then. Yes, a bum. With no place to sleep, I curled up my body like a wandering cat. Id smile at any guy with my dirty face, hoping to get a meal from him. But I never slept with them. I was young, but it was a standard I had within myself. It was funny. Since I was only fourteen. I was so young. If you grabbed anybody and asked, theyd all say the same thing. 'Yes. Youre young.'

Really. As long as Yoonyoung was by my side. That was nothing. Easier than going in a port-o-potty to wash my face on a hot summer day. "Yoonyoung ah!!!!! Im over here!!!" "Okay!! Sorry Im late!! My stupid geography teacher wouldnt end the class." "Its okay. I just got here too!!^-^" "Okay, then!! Lets go. Todays menu. Seasoned cucumbers and egg fried rice!!" "Yay. Thats my favorite!!" "Theres orange juice too. ^o^" Swinging the bag back and forth, Yoonyoung and I went on our way. Just like weve been doing for the past three months and twelve days. We hurried to the wooden bench under the small tree on our school field. Like that. We ate our We hurried to the wooden bench under the small tree on our school field....
