“Coming! Give me a few minutes!” A female voice called out.
It didn’t sound like the ahjumma. The voice sounded too young for a middle-aged woman. Sooyeon wondered who it could be.
A moment later, a young girl emerged from the back, dressed in a yellow short sleeve tee with a white apron. Her hair was tucked under a snapback and there was a hint of chocolate on the side of her lips.
“Hello!” The young girl wiped her hands on a wet towel as she stood behind the ice cream display. She looked up and their eyes met.
“Hey, it’s you. Welcome back!” the girl greeted brightly.
A delicious scent of home-cooked food permeated the air in the Jung household. Yoona, the middle child, was already sitting at the dining table with her cutlery in her hands.
“Unnie ya, Soojungie, dinner is ready!!” Yoona yelled at the top of her voice.
“Yoong, how many times have I told you not to yell at your sisters like that? You should go to their rooms to call them,” Mrs Jung chided, shooting a fierce glare at Yoona.
Yoona sulked a little, refusing to move from her seat. She couldn’t wait to dig into the food in front of her. Her mother was a fantastic cook and she loved eating at home. The fragrant scent of her favourite beef galbi soup was making her very hungry. She had just finished a bag of honey butter chips but that wasn’t enough to satisfy her hunger.
