Doppio Senso - Doppio Senso - Chapter 13.2
– Hey, wherein are you proper now…
Through the receiver of the pay phone, EunHa heard a person clutch the mobile phone earlier than YongJoon may want to end his sentence.
– Lee EunHa. What’s going on?
SungHo known as her name, his voice packed with anger. EunHa seemed off into the space and answered in a skinny voice.
“I were given the products. Where have to I meet you?”
Instead of answering his question, she were given directly to the point. SungHo replied her in a curt voice.
– The boat’s ready. Come to Shekou Harbor F-34 withinside the Nanshan district.
“Okay. I’ll be there quickly.”
After listening to their location, EunHa ended the decision earlier than SungHo may want to say whatever more. She stretched out her lengthy legs and walked to a first-rate street. She raised a hand, inflicting the get dressed to journey up her thigh. A truck stopped in the front of her. The driving force turned into a person with a hairy beard. He flashed his yellow tooth as he known as out to her.
[Why, hello there, little beauty. If you’re trying to get customers here, you’ll be arrested very quickly…]
The chatty driving force’s face darkened. He watched the gun bob as she pointed it at him. Not understanding what to do, the motive force opened the auto door.
EunHa stepped at the accelerator pedal. Her face remained blank. The automobile started out to hurry up.
Shekou Harbor, Nanshan District, Shenzhen. four AM.
The sky remained darkish as though the night time might in no way stop. Fretting anxiously as he waited, Kang SungHo rushed over to EunHa as quickly as he noticed her.
“What approximately the products?”
“Go and spot for your self.”
EunHa’s slender eyes seemed down at her blackened nails as she slowly murmured. She turned into performing arrogant, however there has been no time to talk about her behavior. Kang SungHo seemed over at YongJoon with a grave expression on his face. He gestured to him together along with his eyes. YongJoon hurriedly walked over to the truck. He opened the trailer and checked inside. His face hardened.
“Why aren’t you bringing it in?”
YongJoon hesitated and didn’t pass. SungHo frowned.
“Boss, that is clearly it! There’s a whole lot of it, too. I’ll pass it in earlier than dawn.”
YongJoon raised his voice. SungHo lit a cigarette after listening to the confirmation. YongJoon quick were given into the motive force’s seat and started out to transport the trailer truck closer to the boat. EunHa smiled bitterly as she watched YongJoon attempt to disguise his confusion. Judging from the crimson bruise on his cheek, it gave the impression of SungHo had beat him pretty lots remaining night time.
YongJoon attempted to capture EunHa’s eyes thru the truck window however quick seemed away in order that SungHo wouldn’t notice. EunHa concept that YongJoon might have run directly again to SungHo after checking the contents of the truck. However, that cowardly punk should have felt that it’d be quality for him to depart the scene as quickly as feasible instead. Either manner, EunHa didn’t assume it mattered. The quality moments in existence have been intended to be savored.
“Come and take a cigarette.”
EunHa silently obtained a lit cigarette from SungHo.
“Have some other one earlier than you leave, Ahjussi. Why are you in this type of hurry?”
SungHo, who have been taking walks again onto the anchored boat withinside the darkish, stopped in his tracks and took out some other cigarette. The grey smoke disappeared withinside the salty wind of the sea.
“You appearance terrible.”
SungHo seemed EunHa up and down. Her grimy Chinese get dressed turned into torn right here and there. Her hair turned into tangled and matted. EunHa took a protracted drag of the cigarette and slowly exhaled as she nodded.
“Some tough matters befell withinside the process, so I’ve been thru lots.”
SungHo arrived at Hong Kong remaining night time. However, while he didn’t pay attention a phrase from EunHa, he turned into up all night time worrying. He puzzled if she had backstabbed him and run off with the medication instead. He had despatched YongJoon to hold watch over her, however that fool stated that he didn’t realize wherein EunHa had long gone. As quickly as he heard this, SungHo held again the urge to unload him into the sea. SungHo took a deep drag of his cigarette as he pretended to live calm.
“Well, I’ll pay attention the info later. It should’ve been hard bringing the products right here.”
To SungHo, effects have been the maximum critical thing. He imagined the tens of tens of thousands and thousands he’d earn from promoting the valuable drugs. However, he in no way anticipated her to deliver the entire trailer box with her. It might make passing thru customs lots easier. He found out that each one of the subject and schooling he had given her weren’t for not anything.
EunHa watched as he parted his dry lips. For a second, she saved the silence. Then she burst out laughing. The scar on SungHo’s forehead twitched.
EunHa’s shoulders shook as she roared with laughter. Seeing this, SungHo frowned unpleasantly. He checked out her matted hair and her messy, torn get dressed as she endured to chuckle. She certainly gave the impression of a loopy character.
“What is it?”
“Ahjussi, approximately that trailer truck that YongPal simply drove to the boat…”
EunHa grinned at him with glowing eyes.
“What do you believe you studied is inside?”
EunHa started out to elevate her palms as though she have been quizzing him.
“Number 1: drugs. Number 2: flour. Number 3: knock-off dolls. Or Number four: not anything.”
EunHa luckily watched as SungHo’s face twisted. It gave the impression of he wasn’t capin a position to inform whether or not she turned into joking round or being honest.
“…What type of recreation are you gambling proper now?”
It didn’t seem like he had his traditional 15 centimeter knife on him. When she heard his unsightly voice, EunHa accumulated her hands collectively and drew them to her chest as though she have been praying. Her lengthy eyelashes fluttered.
“Let me provide you with a hint. It’s some thing you honestly like, Ahjussi.”
SungHo threw his half-used cigarette onto the floor as he floor his tooth. It gave the impression of he turned into approximately to seize her hair. EunHa pretended to be amazed as she reduced her voice.
“It looks as if you’ll honestly get mad if I retain joking round.”
“If you already know that already, then hold your mouth shut.”
SungHo’s eyes gleamed dangerously. EunHa flashed her tooth at him as she smiled.
“The accurate solution is wide variety 3. It’s filled animals of knock-off cool animated film characters. There’s approximately thousand of them.”
“…What did you are saying?”
“I assume it fits you perfectly, Ahjussi. You like knock-offs, proper?”
SungHo’s face twisted. EunHa turned into nonetheless smiling, however her eyes flashed gleefully. She gave the impression of a loopy lady, and the sight brought on shivers to run down his spine.
“Are you insane?”
“No. Not yet. If I’d honestly long gone insane, I wouldn’t have long gone thru hell to extract the medication for a bastard such as you, you son of a complain.”
When he noticed the vicious transformation take location in her eyes, SungHo found out that some thing had long gone extraordinarily wrong.
“Why you fucking complain…!”
Right as he turned into approximately to seize her throat, EunHa quick took a step again. Then she took out the gun that she had strapped to her garter belt. When he noticed the pistol, SungHo’s eyes shook. His hand that have been raised to strike her started out to tremble withinside the air. He set free a ragged breath.
“…You complain… Put that down proper now!”
“Why did you do it?”
The smile disappeared from EunHa’s face. Only a cold air of mystery remained. Her light face gleamed withinside the mild.
“‘Why did you do it’? That’s what I have to be asking you, you complain!”
His grating voice burst out of his mouth. He couldn’t include his rage. He took a breakthrough to snap her wrist. He felt that his rage wouldn’t calm down despite the fact that he strangled her to death.
Suddenly, EunHa shot her gun.
Having misplaced his stability because of the surprise and ache, SungHo grasped his bleeding thigh and set free a brief groan. Warm blood started out to spurt out of the wound.
“Your head is next, Ahjussi.”
EunHa shook the muzzle of the gun as she smiled. Seeing this, SungHo started out to tremble. The EunHa he knew wouldn’t had been capable of shoot him. He started out to grind his tooth. EunHa endured to talk calmly.
“You nonetheless haven’t replied my question. Why did you do it?”
SungHo’s eyes blazed because of the dizzying ache as he glared at her.
“What type of bullshit is this?”
“Are you pretending now no longer to realize?”
When he endured to set free a hoarse groan, EunHa shrugged her shoulders.
“That’s too bad.”
When SungHo noticed the muzzle of the gun purpose at his head, he gasped as he took in a ragged breath.
“You mother and father… Is that what you’re speakme approximately proper now?”
The fringe of EunHa’s mouth barely trembled. It had sooner or later befell. Kang SungHo spoke approximately the occasions of that night time together along with his very own mouth.
“Do you believe you studied I’m asking you why you killed my mother and father proper now?”
“…That’s now no longer it? Aren’t you making all this fuss due to the coincidence that befell 10 years in the past?”
EunHa placed on a contrived expression as she frowned. She tilted her head.
Another shot rang out.
SungHo fell to his knees. Both of his thighs have been shot. His knees banged onto the ground, however it turned into no healthy for the ache from the gunshot wounds.
“Oh dear. I in no way anticipated you to kneel earlier than me.”
Watching him gasp for breath, EunHa spoke emotionlessly.
SungHo seemed again with a twisted frown as he known as for YongJoon. However, the truck endured to stand the boat and didn’t pass from the harbor. Because products moved inside and out of this harbor 24 hours a day, it turned into typically packed with trailer boxes and workers. However, for a few reason, it turned into oddly silent today. Not even an ant may be seen.
“In Yangpyeong, all through the wintertime, why did you’re taking me with you? You have to have killed me instead.”
EunHa requested in a weak, trembling voice. Her eyes glistened with tears as she slowly blinked her eyes.
“You have to have killed me similar to you killed my mother and father. Why did you toy with me instead?”
With bloody arms, SungHo swept his hair off his forehead. His breaths have been ragged.
“You… Do you believe you studied I toyed with you?”
“You’re pronouncing you didn’t? You made the daughter of the person you killed publish to you. As you believe you studied her dream of a faulty revenge, how a good deal did you experience it?”
Listening to her bloodless words, SungHo glared at her and raised his voice.
“No! Like you stated, I may want to have killed you. But I stored you instead. I gave you a brand new existence!”
SungHo’s eyes flashed with lunacy. EunHa gave a dejected chuckle as she frowned. Her eyes glistened with tears as she laughed hysterically.
“Aah. I discover you so funny, Ahjussi.”
“I’m the only who took you in despite the fact that you have been a vain female. I clothed you, fed you, and knowledgeable you. I did the whole lot you desired. But you dare to fuck me over after the ten years I’ve continued due to you?!”
SungHo’s scarred forehead twisted. It didn’t rely wherein matters had began to head wrong. He had taken on this deserted canine and spent cash on it as he raised it. But this canine dared to get off its leash and price at its master? SungHo couldn’t take it anymore.
“All due to the fact I killed your father? Just due to the fact I killed your barmaid of a mother… You dare to betray me after the ten years I’ve spent on you?!”
“I’d instead you beg me.”
EunHa murmured, searching down at him as though she have been watching at a trojan horse. Kang SungHo didn’t stop. It turned into as though he had sooner or later found out his real nature.
“Do you already know what type of face your father made as I killed him? He seemed as though he had anticipated the whole lot. As if he knew these days might come. He turned into the only who selected now no longer to depart the mob existence! Even aleven though he turned into a trifling thug, he went off, were given married, or even had a child as though he turned into residing a few type of love song. And this turned into the end result of his choices!”
SungHo’s darkish pink blood pooled at the ground. The picture of her father’s blood pooling at the ground. The picture of her mother’s blood at the staircase. It all overlapped, one on pinnacle of the other. EunHa’s downcast eyes packed with tears while SungHo started out to cackle as he ridiculed her.
“Your father have to be thanking me for now no longer killing his handiest daughter. For saving her. Don’t you believe you studied?”
SungHo’s eyes twisted. EunHa turned into amazed to peer such self belief in his eyes. A human’s real nature turned into chillingly egocentric and hideous. It turned into no one-of-a-kind from a beast.
“I’m the only who raised you and guarded you till now! I’m the only who made you robust so you may want to live to tell the tale regardless of wherein I dropped you off. I’m the only who made all of it feasible, you silly complain!”
“…I stated you have to beg me instead.”
EunHa’s faint voice left her lips as soon as again. If he had begged her for forgiveness, she might have despatched him off with one blow. However, Kang SungHo turned into presently chipping away on the remaining remnants of her humanity.
“I’m the only who is aware of you the quality on this global.”
He held out his blood-soaking wet arms to her.
“Once you preserve this hand, you becomes part of my family.”
10 years in the past, a sixteen-year-antique female have been not able to peer the bloodstains at the hand that turned into held out to her. EunHa chewed on her lip as she seemed down at him.
“Don’t make me chuckle.”
“Lee EunHa, you’re now no longer a grimy complain who has the capacity to kill human beings. I realize that!”
“I marvel if that’s real.”
Kang SungHo snickered at her.
“I nonetheless bear in mind it find it irresistible turned into yesterday. You in your knees as you rubbed your arms, begging me to store your existence. You instructed me you’d do whatever so long as I stored your existence. You even provided to take your garments off and thrusted your self at me despite the fact that you smelled like urine. I nonetheless bear in mind all of it!”
Remembering the recollections she desired to forget, EunHa’s brows furrowed. Her gun trembled as she attempted to hold it aimed on SungHo. SungHo observed the disturbance in her eyes.
“But what did I do? Did I rape you? No! Me?! To a rag complain such as you?! No, I dealt with you as in case you have been the purest character withinside the global. Even if all of the bastards withinside the global dealt with you want a whore, I dealt with you want my daughter. I covered you want a princess and cherished you! This is what love is, you silly complain! Even aleven though I killed your father! Even aleven though I killed your mother, I didn’t kill you! Even aleven though I may want to have killed you, I stored you! Because I felt sorry for you as I watched you crawled at the ground! Even aleven though you have been like that, I cherished you!”
“Stop the bullshit!!”
A hoarse scream tore out of her lips. Rage started out to boil up from her chest. She felt as though her head turned into going to explode. Unable to bear the hatred, she started out to stroll closer to him. She desired to tear his mouth off , simply as he had threatened her earlier than. If she have been maintaining a knife, she might have accomplished precisely that. Unfortunately, due to the fact she didn’t have one, it turned into impossible. But she nonetheless felt that she may want to accept filling his frame with bullet holes.
EunHa’s eyes bulged and the blue veins in her light neck started out to throb. She felt as though her throat might burst open. Kang SungHo had no proper to apply that phrase. Listening to her voice hoarse with rage, Kang SungHo yelled again, his spit spraying from his mouth.
“Yeah! I’m the handiest one on this global who can love you with a natural heart. But you understand that very well, don’t you?”
EunHa had reached the bounds of her patience. She quick walked over to him. Then she crouched down, held up the gun, and fiercely whipped it towards his head.
“I instructed you to close up!”
“You silly complain…! That’s why you’re vain!”
He captured her narrow wrist and snapped it again in a single breath. EunHa bit her lips from the pointy ache.
The gun fell from her hand and slid throughout the floor. SungHo endured to murmur.
“Wake up from this insanity and beg me to your existence proper this instant… Just such as you usually did, twitching like a grimy trojan horse at the ground as you move slowly for me… Because of our beyond collectively, I’ll permit this go together with handiest a cut down throughout your face… Hmm?”
Suddenly, EunHa raised her leg and kicked him withinside the gut.
“Shut up! Shut up!!”
Even if everybody withinside the global laughed at her existence choices, it didn’t rely to her. But now no longer Kang SungHo.
He set free a pained groan, however he nonetheless controlled to seize the hem of her get dressed. EunHa, who had fallen onto her again from the kick, observed herself beneathneath Kang SungHo. He started out to strangle her neck with each his arms.
“You can’t do whatever. If I’m now no longer right here, you’re not anything… How dare you betray me?”
Her eyes bulged from the ache as her airlines have been blocked. Her cheek pressed towards the floor. She attempted to push him off, however all energy left her fingertips. Her blurry imaginative and prescient landed at the gun that had slid beneathneath the trailer truck.
That turned into the gun KyungHyun had given her as he despatched her off with the aid of using herself. For her revenge. She recalled the remaining time she noticed KyungHyun’s face as he instructed her to kill Kang SungHo. To stop their ill-fated ties.
She couldn’t stop it like this.
EunHa’s palms started out to dig into the gunshot wounds in Kang SungHo’s thighs. Having skilled a gunshot wound herself, she knew how painful it turned into. As Kang SungHo cried out, his arms left her neck and started out to strike her throughout her cheeks. Blood burst from her lips, however EunHa didn’t experience the ache.
EunHa started out to violently cough as she drew in deep breaths. She slightly controlled to transport her limp frame. Then she grabbed his hand and started out to chunk it.
“You fucking canine complain!!”
Kang SungHo roared out in ache and started out to overcome her head. EunHa endured to glare at him. If he known as her a canine, then it turned into handiest apt that she chunk the hand that had fed her trash for 10 years.
EunHa spat out the blood in her mouth. She swayed as she were given up and started out to move slowly over to the trailer truck to get the gun.
She puzzled if her eardrums had burst. Everything sounded muffled and her head felt dizzy. She attempted to accumulate her stability and awareness her eyes in order that she didn’t fall. Because of the gunshot wounds on every of his legs, Kang SungHo couldn’t run after her.
Having moved the products into the boat, YongJoon got here again and noticed the scene earlier than his eyes. Shocked, he iced over in his tracks.
“Kill that complain right away!!”
He pointed over to EunHa with bloodied arms as he roared. YongJoon seemed backward and forward among the bloodied SungHo and EunHa who turned into crawling at the ground. He couldn’t disguise his surprise. His ft started out to transport backward and forward in his new shoes.
“Kill her!!! Why aren’t you killing her, you silly bastard?!!! Kill her proper now, kill her!!!”
EunHa stretched out her hand beneathneath the trailer truck as she attempted to attain the gun. She became her head and seemed up at YongJoon.
“You son of a complain, kill her proper now!”
YongJoon clenched his fist as he approached her. She could have been capable of overpower the wounded SungHo, however there has been no hazard she’d win a combat with YongJoon.
Is this the way it turned into going to stop?
Was this all accomplished in vain? All that handiest to stop like this?
YongJoon’s steps have become quicker and quicker as he walked closer to her. Her shaking eyes pierced thru him. YongJoon’s fist went up withinside the air, however it turned into shaking so badly that it nearly gave the impression of he turned into waving it.
“Hurry up! I can’t do whatever on this state!”
“Don’t pass, you bastards!”
The door of one of the trailer boxes burst open and a stunning mild flashed on. They have been surrounded with the aid of using mild. YongJoon blanketed his eyes together along with his arm to guard his eyes from the blinding mild. SungHo did the identical.
They heard a lady shout from inside. EunHa slowly opened her eyes. As she drew in a deep breath, her blurry eyes controlled to peer Lieutenant Han run closer to her. She noticed General Manager Cha run out at the back of her and a collection of human beings in police uniforms swarm out of the trailer boxes.
“Lee EunHa-ssi, are you k?”
“What’s going on…”
Frowning, EunHa couldn’t end her sentence because of the surprise of this situation. Lieutenant Han helped her up from the floor.
“You’ve been aleven though lots. Are you harm anywhere?”
“I’m sorry for placing you in this type of risky situation. We’ve controlled to acquire Kang SungHo’s confession of murdering your mother and father 10 years in the past, so he won’t be capable of bug his manner out of this one.”
EunHa slapped away Lieutenant Han’s provided hand and grabbed her jacket instead.
“Why are you right here, Lieutenant Han?”
“How did you already know I turned into right here?”
EunHa couldn’t recognize how Lieutenant Han and General Manager Cha had recognized approximately this location. Her muddled head turned into all around the location.
“…You don’t realize?”
Lieutenant Han seemed flustered for a second earlier than she set free a deep sigh.
“It looks as if you didn’t realize. Then permit me explain.”
EunHa seemed absolutely shocked, so Lieutenant Han started out to talk in calming voice.
“These trailer boxes had been organized in advance with the aid of using Superintendent Shin as accommodations for us police.”
EunHa sooner or later found out what KyungHyun had intended while he instructed her he wasn’t staying at a hotel. Her lips started out to tremble.
“According to the plan, you have been alleged to entice Kang SungHo right here, Lee EunHa-ssi.”
Those have been the very last orders that KyungHyun had despatched Lieutenant Han and General Manager Cha once they had exited the short meals restaurant.
“Superintendent Shin turned into alleged to guard you all through this process, however as you already know, matters were given tangled up withinside the center and…”
When EunHa had shot Kang SungHo, Lieutenant Han concept that it turned into over. She had anticipated this to happen, so there has been no manner KyungHyun hadn’t anticipated the identical. Even if she needed to acquire disciplinary motion from her advanced officials for this, KyungHyun might acquire the identical due to the fact he turned into the only main the operation. Therefore, Lieutenant Han continued it and held again. Additionally, that they’d controlled to acquire Kang SungHo’s confession of committing the murders from 10 years in the past way to EunHa’s provocation.
“I’m sorry for now no longer saving you sooner, Lee EunHa-ssi.”
Kang SungHo, who had attempted to get away with the aid of using limping away, turned into now held with the aid of using General Manager Cha. He whipped his head backward and forward as he roared out.
“Let me go! Let go, you bastards!!”
“Kang SungHo, you’re beneathneath arrest on expenses of drug soliciting. As in step with your confession, you also are charged with the murders of Lee HyunSoo and Yoon MinJung 10 years in the past in conjunction with arson. There can also be a further price of kidnapping a teenage female. You have the proper to stay silent. Anything you are saying can and can be used towards you in a courtroom docket of law. You have the proper to an attorney, and…”
“Drugs?! Drugs…?!! Where’s your proof? You sons of bitches!”
Watching Kang SungHo scream out, General Manager Cha slid his glasses up the bridge of his nose. Then he gave him a pointy glare.
“We observed 500 million won’s really well worth of medication for your boat.”
Kang SungHo’s eyes glazed over in confusion.
“Fuck, what’s going on?!”
YongJoon obediently accompanied the police in handcuffs as he prevented SungHo’s eyes. Lieutenant Han had accompanied KyungHyun to China and approached YongJoon remaining night time earlier than General Manager Cha had accompanied Kang SungHo onto the aircraft for his departure.
When she heard EunHa and KyungHyun get captured with the aid of using Im SungJoon thru the phone, she right away started out to continue with some other operation. KyungHyun had a knack for making ready a Plan B or maybe a Plan C withinside the case that Plan A failed.
“If some thing takes place to me, capture Kang SungHo with the aid of using the usage of his henchman. If you can’t persuade him to sign up for our side, threaten him till he does.”
At first, while Lieutenant Han provided to clean him of his miscellaneous crimes in alternate for becoming a member of their side, YongJoon had long gone berserk. However, while Kang SungHo had overwhelmed him to a pulp for failing to hold tune of Lee EunHa, he had a alternate of heart.
“Is it k for the police to do enterprise like a gangster? Are you men honestly police?”
Yongjoon grumbled because the police started out to transport the important items onto Kang SungHo’s boat. Lieutenant Han didn’t deny it. In the case that they did not capture him smuggling drugs, her advanced officer instructed her that they’d simply set the scene for a a success arrest. Her mind reflected YongJoon’s, so she had not anything to say.
“If we need to capture the ones grimy bastards, we want to be even dirtier.”
KyungHyun had stated this jokingly. YongJoon prevented Kang SungHo’s eyes and quick were given into the police cruiser. In handcuffs of his very own, Kang SungHo started out to shout out.
“You sons of bitches… You silly bastards!!”
Kang SungHo endured to elevate his voice whilst he turned into being taken away in an ambulance.
