Chae-yoon snickered and leaned into Jo Sung-hyun's arms with a thud.


Jo Sung-hyun didn't know what to do at times like this, so he just quietly hugged the child.


"Chae-yoon."


"Yes...."


"Why were you so angry?"


"He said I don't have a mom."


At that, Jo Sung-hyun had to swallow the tears that were about to overflow.


He wanted to say that throwing the grapes was wrong, that she shouldn't do that.


He had a duty as a father to teach his daughter what she could and couldn't do.


But he couldn't say anything.


How should he say it?


Was it right to talk about right and wrong in this situation?


No, he didn't even think that Chae-yoon throwing the grapes was that wrong.


His head was tangled up.


In the meantime, Teacher Min Eun-jung came over.


"Uh... sir. What happened?"


"Ah, um. The boy tried to give her some grapes, but Chae-yoon refused. Then they got into a loud argument."


"Oh dear... I'm sorry, sir. Young-joon didn't mean any harm by it."


"Yes, yes, he was just trying to give her some grapes. We're sorry for Young-joon."


He was sincere.


He felt a bit resentful and wanted to ask why he said such a thing.


But he understood that the boy didn't say it with a bad intention.


From the child's point of view, he offered his kindness and got a grape thrown at him.


He didn't think Chae-yoon was wrong, but it was a confusing situation for the boy.


He had a good talk with Teacher Min Eun-jung, and checked that Chae-yoon had calmed down and drank her orange juice well. Then he glanced around.


He wanted to apologize if he saw the child or the child's parents.


It wasn't hard to find Young-joon.


He was still holding the container with the grapes in it.


Young-joon came closer timidly and looked at Chae-yoon and Jo Sung-hyun.


Seeing him look around, Jo Sung-hyun felt relieved.


He didn't come out of anger, but out of guilt. It was written on his face.


There wouldn't be any more trouble or fighting.


"I'm sorry. The grapes... they're delicious. Mom said I should share them with you."


In the end, Young-joon apologized and offered the grapes.


Chae-yoon looked up at him in response.


"...I'll share them with dad."


"Yeah. Let's share them. If you want more, I'll bring some more."


Was it because she accepted the apology and received the grapes, or was it because Young-joon's face brightened up a bit, Jo Sung-hyun wondered.


Young-joon nodded, as if unsure if he should say something.


Seeing him hesitate with a face that seemed unsure if he could speak, Jo Sung-hyun smiled.


"No, Young-joon. It's not your fault. Chae-yoon is not sorry either, right, Chae-yoon?"


"I'm not sorry."


Chae-yoon shook her head back and forth.


Jo Sung-hyun couldn't help but chuckle and stop laughing.


Feeling a bit uneasy, he glanced at Young-joon, who seemed fine and had a confident face.


"I'm sorry."


He said only those words and quickly turned around.


Young-joon quickly walked towards where Jo Sung-hyun and Chae-yoon were, a little away from them.


Young-joon's parents, whom he had seen at the mart when he went shopping last time, nodded their heads and greeted Jo Sung-hyun.


Jo Sung-hyun returned the greeting and lowered his head towards Chae-yoon.


Chae-yoon, sitting on his lap, was selecting grapes from the container.


When he put a grape into her mouth, she chewed on it happily.


"Is it delicious?"


"It's delicious."


As the child happily ate, she held out a grape to Jo Sung-hyun.


"Dad, try it too!"


Saying that, she offered him a grape. How could he refuse?


However, Jo Sung-hyun felt a little concerned and glanced at Young-joon, who pretended to look away.


Jo Sung-hyun quickly took the grape that Chae-yoon offered and then put another grape into Chae-yoon's mouth.


Lunchtime passed by quickly like that.
