“I’ve never been in a penthouse before, so I have zero expectations. Is there something I should look out for? Jacuzzi tub? A tiger chained up in your bedroom? The aforementioned icepick?”
“You’ve got a solid one out of three.” A soft ding, the doors opening in almost complete silence. “Not that I’m going to tell you which one, of course.” He steps through the opening and makes a left, heading towards the farthest end of the hallway. Of course, there isn’t much else up here, save for a single door with a gold plate reading, “Utilities.” Nothing too exciting going on in there.
The entrance to the penthouse is actually understated, not that I’d expected a red carpet or men with trumpets. It’s a single door–with multiple security measures, I might add–beneath a minimalist, hanging lamp, and a mailbox has been built into the wall beside the door hinges. Jongdae unlatches the first lock with a physical key before sliding the card through another security mechanism, and the door opens with a faint beep. He uses his shoulder to press against it, and that is when I realize that, despite the simplistic design of the entryway, the door is actually thick as hell.
“Damn. That thing bulletproof?”
“Better be, after the amount I paid for it,” he says, careful to check that I am inside the apartment before shutting it behind me. We take our shoes off in unison, and the brief reprieve from tension abruptly concludes. After all, I’m in his apartment. There’s not much more stalling I can do, unless I actually do manage to find a tiger in the bedroom.
