(Author’s note: January was a very busy month. Exceptionally busy. Things are really picking up steam. Therefore, here’s today’s fictioneers!)

Paul slowed himself down as he approached the bench. Su-Yeon, raven hair and all, turned his way.
“Paul? What’s going on?”
“I just saw you pass by, and wanted to talk quickly!”
“What’s going on?”
He sat down, catching his breath. The British expat needed to exercise more.
“Valentine’s day is coming up. And I’d like to take you out for a date.”
Su-Yeon’s eyes got wide, then narrowed as she grinned.
“So you want me to leave my title of noona, soona?”
“Oh stop it, you!”
Su-Yeon just chuckled.
* – “Noona” is Korean to denote a woman who is older than a man, but is familiar to them (regardless of biology). Commonly used among younger college-aged males for the upperclass college-aged women.
Nice story, Miles. Women always got mad at me when I called them noona. Must be because I looked old and it reminded them they were older than me. 🙂
Fun little story and thanks for the little Korean language information too. Well done.
There is a word for everything. I enjoyed this.
That was cute!
Love this story 🙂
I like it. Well done. (kind of like a cougar, right?)
I think her answer is “yes.” Good Valentine’s Day story.
