The next morning, Juho was called into the office by the captain.
He sighed, wondering what he had done wrong now. He was sick of
getting in trouble, though he was in good graces with the
captain, at the moment.
Taking a deep breath, he opened the door to the office. The
captain was sitting behind his desk, as usual. Juho recognized
the papers he had as his teams sparring scores. He rolled his
eyes, knowing this was going to be an interesting conversation.
"Please have a seat, Sergeant Lee," the captain did not look up
from his desk, which was a bad sign. It meant he would not be
paying full attention. Just great.
Juho sat patiently, figuring he could have taken a nap in the
time the captain took to get ready. When the captain finally
looked up at him, Juho smiled.
The captain straightened the papers in front of him, pulling one
of them out. "Sergeant, you said you wanted a new eval…is that
correct?" The captain smiled tightly.
Juho tried to remember if he had mentioned anything about an
evaluation. All he remembered was speaking to the captain about
his team and damned Changmin…but not the evaluation. "Um…I do
think that my team deserves a new one, but I don't see that
happening. So, the only problem I have is Changmin…but you
already knew that."
The captain rolled his eyes, picking through the file again.
"Sergeant Lee, I believe we already had this conversation, and he
is too much of an asset to take off of your team. I'm sorry. That
is not what I wanted to speak with you about, anyway."
Juho laughed softly. Of course you won't think about moving
Changmin. You're right…too much of an ass…et, but the general's
son. Grrr…He turned back to the captain, his lips pursed, and his
voice low and monotone. "Captain, I know that Changmin is the son
of the general, but he is nearly impossible to work with, and
will destroy my team. Does that mean nothing to you? I thought
you cared about my team."
The captain glared at him. "Do not speak to me in that tone,
Sergeant! I will not stand for your disrespect. You will either
keep Changmin Kim on the team, or I may need to remove you. Am I
speaking clear enough for your thick skull to take in, or do I
need to repeat myself?"
Juho shook his head, then looked up at the captain. "Sir…You do
realize that he was a bully in high school, don't you? Not only
that, but he is too childish and apparently spoiled to stop now.
He is especially mean to Sergeant Park Gyuri's team…and that is
The captain slammed his fist down on the table. "There you go
again, talking bad about him. He has not treated anyone with
disrespect, and I will not stand for you disrespecting me,
Sergeant Lee. I have had enough, and you are suspended, until you
stop being so childish about this. Think as a sergeant…not a
schoolboy. Also, you have not managed to find the Zybrian child
yet, so there is no reason to give you that responsibility
anymore. I am passing it to someone else…Someone more capable.
You may leave, Sergeant Lee. Think about your actions and words,
next time you speak. And no…there will be no new eval. Your team
doesn't deserve it. You need to work on being a team first."
Juho stood up and walked out. He was already suspended, so what
was the point of respecting the captain. He wasn't going to tell
him that he had already found that Zybrian "child" since the
captain wasn't interested in hearing any more from him. He would
talk to Kisu on his own…In his free time.
He walked to Seokjun's quarters, and was invited in.
Seokjun smiled at him, but it disappeared, when he saw his
"Hey…the captain will probably pass the responsibility of
finding the "Zybrian child" to you, so there are a few thing you
may want to know." Juho sighed. "First of all, he is dating your
brother, so you can get closest to him…His name is Kisu Choi. Can
you let me know, after you speak with him? I would appreciate
Seokjun looked a bit surprised, but nodded. "Okay. I'll speak
with him, when I see him again."
Juho smiled, still annoyed. "Thanks, dude."
Seokjun nodded. "You're welcome, Juho."
