So, I was reading chapter 13 and I have some thoughts on it, especially on the last two panels
First things first: what kind of cop behaves so awkward and gets himself in such dangerous situations … I mean at least turn off the sound of your phone when you’ll do a pretend-call
For me it was clear that Yoonbum wouldn’t have left the house (I’m not even sure if he ever was in the closet, I always assumed he was in the kitchen bc his feet?), but it was nice to see Sangwoo getting all worked up about it, choking that lantern and get the flashback to his mother (whom I’d now assume was murdered by him).
Then, when he gets back into the house, mumbling about killing Yoonbum he finds him sitting at the kitchen floor, collapses kinda and then tells him to come into his arms and whispers “Let’s stay together forever”. This is where it gets interesting:
At first we have this panel; Yoonbum in his arms, who clings on to him. Looks like a hug to me I’d say but then
He lets his arm fall down to the floor and there were 2 ideas forming in my head when I saw this;
1.) he needs to steady himself, because he’s exhausted from spending this nerve-wrecking time under the sink. If Sangwoo was just hugging him he could let himself fall into his arms and wouldn’t need to steady himself so I guess they kiss (maybe passionately and maybe more will happen because Sangwoo kind of regained a lot of trust in Bum).
2.) tbh,option 1 is much more likely but; what if Bum is fed up with everything. the way he let’s his hand fall down could seem like a ‘fuck this, I won’t deal with this anymore’ (even though it’s unlikely bc Bum is not what you’d call resistent, especially when it comes to Sangwoo. Therefore declining Sangwoos needs or using his moment of weakness to negotiate some advantages for himself (like I said: much unlikely).
What did you think about this chapter and where do you think we’ll go?
As much as I want to see Kyoko and Ren act across from one another, I’m kind of hoping that that will be the end of the manga. Specifically, I want it to end with them acting across from each other for the first time in a drama directed by Shingai, the one from the Princess Coup d'etat arc. That way it’ll feel kind of like a full circle.
“If you wish to leave, then leave. You are free to do so. No one will stop you.” Loki yelled, pointing to the door. He watched as Maebh grabbed the wolf pelt she used to stave off the cold when she was working outside, then turned once more to glare at Loki silently, as he did to her, and walked out the door and away from the homestead without another backward glance.
It took a few weeks for Maebh’s hand to heal, the knife had not gone through bone, but it was still very tender to move or touch. And though Loki had tried to forbid her from doing anything that would strain it in anyway, she continued with most of the housework. While she was injured, Loki did the jobs that Maebh found she was unable to do, and it was then that he realised how much she did without ever even being asked, or him even thinking it needed doing, such as sharpening the knives, axe and even his sword, as well as beating the pelts to freshen them.
