"Hey what's up Mark?"smiled Geonu
"Oh... hey Geonu you are here?"stutterd Mark
"Yeah,like you don't own this place you know"replied Geonu getting confused by the scared look on Mark's face.
Geonu and Mark were best friends since kindergarten and Geonu had always been the strong one or in other words he always helped Mark when he got bullied and Mark always helped Geonu with his studies,Things were normal till last week when Mark was cornered by a group of kids that Geonu had beaten up for bullying their classmate and now those kids planned to make one of the gang members be gravely injured and put the blame on Geonu that he was the one who got drunk and nearly killed their mate and they wanted Mark to take Geonu to a bar and be the witness of the scene in front of their principal and parents.
Mark knew that Geonu never got drunk and Mark himself would never betray a friend like Geonu,but the problem was that Hwanwoong the leader of the gang ,his father was the boss of Mark's mom and he threatened Mark that he would make his mom jobless if he didn't did the task.
Mark was from a poor family and his dad died in a plane crash so his mom worked as a professor in a university and her pay was limited.
"What should I do? "cried Mark with frustration.
"How am I supposed to make Geonu go to the bar with me?" thought Mark
After thinking for some time he had decided to betray Geonu which his heart wasn't determined to do.Finally he picked up his phone and dialed Geonu's number.
"Hey yoooo wasup my man" came Geonu's greeting words
"Uhhhhh...ahem Geonu I wanted to ask you whether you know... Like go to the bar with me?"asked Mark his heart beating faster every second.
"Mark are you serious you know I hate drinking still you are asking me like are you crazy or something if you wanna go you can I am not stopping you but just for your information I am dissapointed that YOU are asking me this! "said Geonu anger visible in his voice
"No no Geonu like it's not like that I... you know just wanted to like take a look how a bar looks like you know that kind of thing"replied Mark in a haste.
"Whatever it is I don't care and BTW you can google to Take A Look at the bar. "said Geonu
"Oh no sorry Geonu I am really sorry I just—"and then Mark started crying
"Hey Mark it's fine you know I am sorry for being harsh but come on my man don't cry now"apologized Geonu instantly thinking it was his fault.
"Look I am coming to pick you up and then we will be going for Starbucks yeah!? Sounds good huh?"asked Geonu knowing Mark loved Starbucks.
"Okay bye I will be out there " sniffed Mark.
The next day Mark walked into the school building with a heavy heart "this is gonna be a great blast"he thought.
After the 15 mins till the first period there was an announcement "LEE GEONU OF CLASS D PLEASE STEP IN THE PRINCIPALS OFFICE NOW URGENTLY "
Geonu looked confused and exited the classroom where everybody gave him weird looks.
10 minutes passed and there was another annoucment "MARK ROBERT OF CLASS D PLEASE STEP IN THE OFFICE URGENTLY "
Mark slowly stepped out of the classroom, he walked through the hallway and entered the office .
"Sir I promise he is lying " was the first voice Mark heard when he entered the office.
"Hello mister Robert "smiled the principal at Mark.
"Please be seated, Now here we have a big issue and the victim is saying that you are the witness "He then continued
"Mister Robert, Yeo Hwanwoong here is saying that last night his friend got gravely injured and he claims that you were present at the scene and you saw Lee Geonu beat up his friend ,Now you have to tell me whether this information is accurate or not" the principal raised an eyebrow at Mark who looked pale as ever.
Mark looked at Geonu who was fuming with anger and then he looked at smiling Hwanwoong.
Mark took a deep breath and his tongue started speaking and he spilled the truth including the threats of Hwanwoong.
The principal looked at Mark and said"What prove do you have that you are saying the truth ?"
"Sir may I ask you that what proof does Hwanwoong has that he is speaking the truth? "replied Mark calmly surprised by his own voice.
"We can't say much but I will give you guys 3 hours to find a authentic proof for your sayings"the principal shurrged.
"What do we do now"Mark said the minute they exited the office.
"Don't talk to me Mark you went through such a big thing still you never told me and kept it a secret "said Geonu angrily.
"Huff.... I am sorry for all of this but right now the important thing is to find some evidence "huffed Mark
"Fine but you will treat me Mc Donald "said Geonu
"Fine whatever you are sooo crazy for Me Donald like a kid goes crazy for a new toy"
"Yeah yeah like you aren't for Starbucks "
"Wait a minute OMG Geonu you are a literal genius—"
"Hey! what do you mean was I dumb a minute ago"scowled Geonu
"OMG shut up listen we can go to the Starbucks we went last night and ask them for the security camera recording than there will be a proof that we spent our night at Starbucks "cried Mark with excitement
"I personally think we needa run if we want our evidence now"said Geonu looking at his watch.
"Very well than I think Hwanwoong you are kicked out of our school and you better send your parents tomorrow and you should better apologize to these two and your companion that you injured for your personal means"shouted the principal.
"Omgggggg this burger is soooo cool nothing can beat MAC DONALD "said Geonu grinning
