Tsuyoshi wanders the streets, still reeling after learning the truth of his past and the cruelty that ripped his true family apart. Unwilling to return home and face his uncle and grandfather, Tsuyoshi asks to stay with Be-Ri for the night. But Erica and Mi-Hyuk are not about to leave the two of them alone in an empty house, and Be-Ri is soon made the unwilling host of an impromptu slumber party. It's no surprise when Tsuyoshi is the first to fall asleep, but when the time comes to rouse him, Tsuyoshi remains unconscious...

Per his grandfather's instructions, Tsuyoshi has secured a Korean girlfriend . . . but he's got the wrong girl! The old man will settle for nothing short of Be-Ri, but even a cushy cat tower can't woo her back to Tsuyoshi's side . . . What about a genuine confession? With the painful realization that Tsuyoshi's affections will never favor her again, Erica decides to give up the chase. Now there's no reason for her to remain in Korea, is there? Unless . . . she's already set her sights on a new quarry!

Heartbroken and mortified at San-Ne's discovery of her secret affections, Be-Ri launches headfirst into a relationship with Mu-Hyuk. She's still not overly fond of him, at least not in a romantic way, but she's willing to give it a try, if only to forget about San-Ne. But Tsuyoshi isn't pleased about the new arrangement. For one thing, Mu-Hyuk is so overprotective that Tsuyoshi hardly ever gets to hang out with Be-Ri at school. For another, much to his own surprise, Tsuyoshi is unhappy at seeing Be-Ri with another guy. True, they were only "fake dating" for the sake of his grandfather, but now the old man isn't the only one thinking they should give it another go...

Thanks in no small part to Be-Ri, Tsuyoshi is just getting settled in his new life in Korea. But now that Erica's on the scene, Tsuyoshi's decision to use Korea as a "fresh start" is becoming more and more difficult, especially when she announces she'll be joining his class at school. For Be-Ri, the only thing worse than watching Erica's shameless affection from the back seat of a car is...having to watch it every day from her new seat behind Erica and Tsuyoshi. But what's this? Is Erica...crying? Seems there's trouble in paradise, but Be-Ri's got troubles of her own when Mu-Hyuk's surprise kiss turns her insides to knots...

The fur may have been flying at their first meeting, but things have eased up a little between Be-Ri and Tsuyoshi. Their newfound neighborliness raises Mi-Hyuk's hackles, however, prompting him to make a bid for Be-Ri's affections. And as Tsuyoshi defends her from the oncoming love attack, no one is more surprised than Be-Ri herself. But when a familiar face from Japan shows up on Tsuyoshi's doorstep, Be-Ri's not the only one who has to deal with affairs of the heart.

Act on Life Not on Anger

Georg H. Eifert
Authors:
Georg H. Eifert

If you'd tried to control problem anger before with little success, this book offers you a new approach to try. Instead of asking you to struggle even harder with anger, this book helps you to drop the rope in your tug-of-war with anger using a new set of principles and techniques: acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). You'll start by learning how to accept your angry feelings as they occur, without struggling to alter or impede them in any way. Then, using techniques based in mindfulness practice, you'll find out how to watch your anger without identifying with it. Value-identification exercises help you decide what matters most to you and then commit to short- and long-term goals that turn these values into reality. In the process, anger simply loses power over your life-in the process, you'll gain the most profound control, accomplished by simply letting go.
