Home as He Knows It
"Welcome home, you are finally here."
"Neh, how have you been, Park Shim-yon-ssi?" he smiled in greeting.
"I've been good. Still the same," the small bespectacled book store owner returned his smile. "You are looking well too."
He gave his old neighbour one of his characteristic nod.
"Have you been to the apartment?" the shop keeper asked.
"Ani. Came here first."
"Arasso. Take your time here," the older man said, leaving him on his own, knowing that was what he would prefer.
"Neh, thank you... and thank you for keeping the apartment safe for me."
