“Ace! Will you help us down here?”
The boy could only let out a sigh as he jogged downstairs. Surprisingly he had come out his room on the first yelling; Ace could not really be bothered by anything when he’s writing songs. But apparently, by the tone of his mother’s voice, there’s something more important than what he’s doing.
“What is it?” A whine was quick to come out from his lips as soon as he reached the kitchen, to which he was surprised to see so busy. “What’s with all the preparation?”
Not too long after he slumped his elbows on the counter to observe, a ringing could be heard from the living room. Ace was sure it was from his mother’s phone, and instantaneously she had motioned at her son. “Dear, can you get that for me?”
Still utterly confused on what the night was all about, Ace just obeyed orders and went to get the ringing device. The caller ID reads Im Yoona; even though he wasn’t very keen on meeting her mother’s friends, he knew them by names, and clearly this one’s new because he’s never heard of her.
“Mom, it says Im Yoona–should I pick up?” He called from the living room.
“Yes, dear! She’s our guest tonight.”
Not wasting any time, he swiped at the screen. “Hello? This is Ace speaking, my mom’s pretty busy right now.”
