Kimchi's Diaries 2: Shady Culprit

And here’s the continuation of “Kimchi’s Diaries: Dangerous Fa(n)scination”! For those who didn’t sleep since my last diary, here’s good news – continuation! But is it really for your good? Part II of the diary: We finally got a long vacation from our company and we were going to not very known village Hwang-ya. However, was it really a good idea? Besides fun we were caught up in the mystery of the village, which later had unpleasant consequences... But soon I understood that this was more complicated than I ever imagined.


3. Deadly encounter

I almost fainted when I saw what I touched.

A corpse. I touch a corpse. I hoped it was fake and in any moment I’ll hear ‘Hidden Camera!’, but there was no one beside me but that dead girl... At least I thought. Her face was so much damaged that I barely recognized the gender.

I screamed and jumped when a leaf fell down on corpse’s forehead. I thought I watched too many crime dramas, because instead of running I started to research the body. Maybe it didn’t get to me that this was real and serious. It was a murder, I was sure of it. I looked up. I fell down from there too and was alive, just barely scratched. She wouldn’t die from that...

The corpse was half-buried in the ground. Her face... or maybe I won’t describe it. In other words, it was awful view, and I suddenly felt sick and vomited. Man, I wished I wasn’t here...

But I felt relieved. For a moment I thought that was Heejun and even now I tried not to cry. I wiped my mouth with a trembling hand and stood up, staggering. I wanted to go away, but suddenly I saw something in her mouth. With great resistance I parted her lips. There was a piece of paper in her tooth. Groaning and cursing, I took out the paper and saw five numbers:


I frowned. What’s that?

All of a sudden I heard a loud rustle and let go of the paper, surprised. Ah, my poor nerves... The paper flew with a wind and fell into a nearby river. Damn, now I’ll never know what were those numbers...

But the movie atmosphere was disturbed by another rustle and a low and scary voice:

“On a rose will always be spikes, on thorns will never be flower.”

That scared the hell out of me and I ran away, not thinking about anything. Surprisingly quickly I climbed back up the hill. Then I ran almost with closed eyes, just far away from there.

Suddenly I bumped into someone. We fell. That someone touched my arm and I wanted to continue the running, when I recognized Inseong.

“What happened?” he asked. “I heard screaming. It was you?”

Without a word I hugged him.

“Thank God it’s you...” I muttered. “Thank God...”

“Jihun-ah, you’re okay? Did something happen?”

Before I realized, words started to flow from my mouth. I told him everything, except those numbers, which I considered unnecessary.

“We have to call the police,” I finished my story.

“Right, but we don’t have phones. We’ll find the rest and come back to Mr. Lee.”

I agreed. However, it wasn’t so easy. Forest was big and we didn’t know it at all.

“I’m worried about Heejunnie,” I said.

“He’ll be fine.” But I heard doubt in Inseong’s voice.

“But I was supposed to watch over him! I won’t forgive myself if something happened to him –”

“Don’t treat him like a child, Jihun-ah. You’re just one year older. If that’s the case, you’re considered child too.”

Suddenly I felt anger. It wasn’t like that! I didn’t treat Heejun like a child, I was just worried! I was sure if Heejun was me, he would be worried too.

“Don’t you feel strange?” Inseong said, stopping abruptly.


“I think I know this place.”

He was right. We’ve been here. We’ve been circling round and round. I panicked again. Inseong took my hand, so I would feel safer. Then we heard sounds from ours walkie-talkies.

“Youjin-hyung, do you copy?” Inseong called.


“We must be too far away,” I stated.

“Listen, we’ve got a problem. Heejun is –”

Out of the blue we lost the ground under our feet and fell down. In the last moment I turned and saw hooded man, who probably pushed us. I opened my mouth, but at the same time we reached water.
