Manhwa Review: 13th Boy, Vol. 8 [Paperback]

I've finished "13th Boy Vol. 8" by SangEun Lee.

Product Description

Beatrice has disappeared without a trace, leaving Hee-So to wallow in despair (not to mention her own filth) due to his inexplicable absence. And even a visit from Won-Jun can't drag her out of the dumps! In fact, he only makes it worse when Won-Jun takes Hee-So's true story about her walking, talking, now-missing cactus as a hint for him to mind his own business and get lost. But before Hee-So can be yanked out of her pity party to set things right with him, Sae-Bom's family drama begins to unfold with sudden and shocking consequences! Will Hee-So be able to make it over the rough road that lies ahead of her without her trusty, spiny little confidante at her side?

My Review:

In this volume Hee-So is depressed and worried because Beatrice has disappeared.  Meanwhile Beatrice is living at Whie-Young's house and is happy to do chores for his mother and grandmother.  One day Whie-Young asks Whie-Young to pick up some groceries for her so he sends Beatrice to retrieve them.  On the way he bumps into Hee-So who is waiting for Won-Jun at a park. 

Beatrice starts running from Hee-So and she chases after him but slips in a puddle.  He comes back to help her up and she starts yelling and hitting him.  She finally calms down and asks him to come home with her and meet her family for dinner.  When they arrive all the women in the family are smitten with him and they wished he was their son or brother. 

We see Won-Jun has gone to meet Sae-Bom at another park because she is upset her mom is sending her to America to live with her dad.  Won-Jun asks Sae-Bom if it would be okay if he went to America with her.
